Kevin Godbold | Saturday, 30th May, 2020 | More on: SSE ULVR Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool.

Some shares have been recovering, but now investors fear a second stock market crash.In some ways though, that’s all quite normal. Indeed, stock markets have always climbed a wall of worry, and the economic outlook is rarely crystal clear.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’m handling the situation by investing with a very long holding period in mind. If there’s another market wobble, 10 years from now I’ll probably have forgotten all about it – if I choose good-quality investments.Solid-looking FTSE 100 investmentsAnd one stock I’d head for is the FTSE 100’s SSE (LSE: SSE). The energy company’s share price remains well down from its pre-coronavirus peak. But in a trading update released on 27 March, the company confirmed its intention to pay the full-year shareholder dividend for the trading year to March.Back in March, the business hadn’t suffered many ill effects from the pandemic. But the directors have reserved the right to stop dividend payments in the future, if necessary. However, with lockdowns beginning to ease, I reckon the worst could be over for the business.Looking ahead, finance director Gregor Alexander said in the update, SSE’s long-term focus is to support the transition to a net-zero economy. And the firm has made “substantive progress” in recent months. He points as evidence to the company’s core, low-carbon networks and renewables businesses. The focus on decarbonisation is set to continue. And I think holding shares in SSE will be a good idea over the coming years. Shifting demand and a positive outlookBranded consumer goods provider Unilever (LSE: ULVR) is another share that continues to languish below the high it achieved before the crisis. And I’ve always found the company’s defensive, cash-generating credentials to be attractive.In the first-quarter trading statement released in April, chief executive Alan Jope explained there’s been higher demand in some areas of the business and falling demand in others. Meanwhile, the factories are still running to keep up with demand. And the company is opening new capacity where needed, “such as in hand hygiene and food.” Looking beyond the immediate crisis and into a world with coronavirus, Jope reckons Unilever will continue to adapt and thrive. Meanwhile, the directors maintained the quarterly dividend.  And, to me, that emphasises the positive outlook and underlines their confidence in the business model. I reckon Unilever could be a valuable addition to a long-term portfolio of shares.A broad-brush approach to cyclicalsMy third pick is the FTSE 100 index itself. I’d consider making regular investments in an FTSE 100 tracker fund with the aim of capturing the ongoing recovery in the market.Since the easing of lockdowns began, some of the more cyclical shares have been recovering a bit. But it’s hard to pick the ‘right’ cyclical shares in the current environment. The underlying businesses of many companies will be badly damaged and may never fully recover.However, the FTSE 100 contains many cyclical companies. And that’s why it responds so much to the ups and downs of the economy. By holding a tracker fund, I’d benefit from all the advantages of wide diversification across many underlying shares.center_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Enter Your Email Address Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Grilling with family and friends is a great way to spend a summer evening, but how much should you spend on a grill? We’re no experts, so we checked out what Consumer Reports had to say about grills. They tested over 100 gas grills to find the best and worst. Our tests included portable, small, midsized, and large gas grills, ranging from $140 to $2,600. They’re from Weber, Char-Broil, Brinkmann, Kenmore, Napoleon, Vermont Castings, and other brands.“Performance wasn’t always tied to price, but features, construction, and warranty often were,” their report stated.Although grills can get expensive, the good news is that the pros at Consumer Reports have several recommendations for $300 or less.Midsized (18 to 28 burgers) TAGSConsumer ReportsGrill Previous articleApopka City Council Meeting PreviewNext articlePulse Shooting Update: OPD Officers who fired shots Dale Fenwick RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.last_img read more

Toys aren’t us

by ,

Toys aren’t us Abbey National is offering a toy donation programme whereby it is collecting toys and games at 40 of its branches around the country and then distributing them to 10 children’s hospitals. You would only know of this if you read the newspapers: no mention of this seasonal goodwill can be found on the Abbey National Web site. Given the extensive marketing by online toy shops in the run-up to Christmas, it would seem the company is missing a good opportunity.The programme runs until 28 January.

Educators battle austerity cuts in Wisconsin

by ,

first_imgMore than 1,500 teachers, staff, students and community supporters pack an April 10 Milwaukee Public Schools school board meeting.As a part of the international workers’ movement against austerity, educators in Wisconsin continue to fight back against Wall Street’s intent to destroy public education and unions.Following the implementation of the 2011 Act 10 union-busting law, the Milwaukee Teachers Education Association’s leaders and members have adopted a social-justice or class-struggle union approach. The MTEA has especially been leading the fight to defend public education in Wisconsin.In 2011, a right-wing, racist cabal took over the legislature and governor’s office. Since then, poor and working people in this Midwestern state especially have faced more intensive Jim Crow-type austerity. Black workers in Wisconsin, who have long experienced some of the worst conditions for people of African descent in the United States, are taking the brunt of the banks’ and their political servants’ vicious attacks.Right-wing think tanks like the Milwaukee-based Bradley Foundation designed many of the anti-public education and union-busting models implemented in the Midwest. Now, the Trump administration (and Obama before him) is using them on a federal and even international level.The MTEA and its allies in the Latinx community — Voces de la Frontera and Youth Empowered in the Struggle — among numerous other labor, community and student groups — are combating these models. They are employing creative and militant organizing tactics and strategies to resist austerity and to build people’s power in workplaces and the community.Along with the K-12 public education struggles in Milwaukee and elsewhere in the state, student-workers in the University of Wisconsin system are also resisting Puerto Rico-style austerity through various protest actions.Students, faculty and staff at UW Stevens Point are now fighting against a gutting of liberal and humanities programs at that campus. Last year, these direly needed programs were gutted at UW Superior. The Teaching Assistants Association-AFT at UW Madison is also engaged in numerous battles against the UW administration and the UW Regents that govern the system and are trying to impose cuts.Milwaukee is a majority Black and Brown city. Since 2011, students in the Milwaukee Public School (MPS) system have been facing the largest public education cuts in state history. Students there also face a structural disparity in per-pupil funding when compared to their suburban counterparts.The evisceration of residency rules for city workers and increasing debt service to the banks are creating even more funding challenges. Budget cuts have been passed on to educators in the classroom. Educators and students face crumbling buildings and a lack of necessary supplies.School administrators have become part of the problem. They could be demanding an end to charter schools, which drain hundreds of millions annually from MPS. Instead of advocating for full funding, these administrators now propose an additional 5 percent, across-the-board cut for students and schools, and massive health care and benefits cuts that would be even more devastating. (mtea.weac.org)MTEA members and their supporters answered the administration on April 10 with one of the largest mobilizations at a school board meeting in the union’s history. Over 1,500 MTEA members and supporters packed the school board meeting room and overflowed into adjacent rooms, the basement and outside.The MTEA forces demanded an end to any cuts and put forth some of their program: Keep budget cuts away from schools! Time for teachers and educational assistants to meet the needs of their students! Quality affordable health care for all full-time education workers — including substitutes! Raises to attract and retain the education workers that students deserve!Walk-ins and other protest actions at public schools across this city of 600,000 preceded the April 10 protest and these actions continue.The MTEA is following up the school board meeting action with a mass informational picket on April 24 at MPS headquarters. Numerous labor-community organizations support this action, including the Wisconsin AFL-CIO, which sent out a “Stand in Solidarity with Milwaukee Education Workers!” email to its entire statewide list:“MPS Administration has accepted and passed along years of budget cuts and austerity to Milwaukee Public School students and classrooms. Tattered textbooks, crowded classrooms, and shrinking art, music, and physical education programs are just a few of the consequences students and educators face thanks to Scott Walker’s unprecedented public education cuts. Enough is enough! See you on the picket line!” (wisaflcio.typepad.com)The MTEA is also again supporting the May Day march sponsored by Voces de la Frontera and Youth Empowered in the Struggle, this year to be held in Waukesha, an area populated by many right-wing, racist politicians.

Within the first 13 minutes, the Stags jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead.Caltech locked in on defense at that point, limiting the visitors’ chances over the next 24 minutes before a 36th-minute curler from outside the box put CMS ahead 3-0 at halftime.The Beavers came out rejuvenated in the second half, again playing stout defense, with senior Schaeffer Reed (Miami, Fla. / Westminster Christian) in particular coming up with a slew of interceptions and recovered balls. The Stags’ deep bench came into play late in the game, however, mustering scores in the 66th and 87th minutes. The Beavers fought right to the end, with freshman Kevin Yu (Park Ridge, N.J. / Park Ridge) cutting through multiple defenders on several occasions and finally creating enough space to whip in a low shot, but the effort was saved.Head Coach Phil Murray and the Beavers will travel to Thousand Oaks to play Cal Lutheran University (3-3, 2-2) on Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 7 p.m.Follow and show support for your Caltech Beavers on Twitter (@CaltechBeavers), Facebook, YouTube and Instagram!

Call for free sanitary products in Council buildings

Photo: Cian ReinhardtSOCIAL Democrats councillor Elisa O’Donovan has called on the local authority to explore the provision of free sanitary products in all Limerick Council buildings, including community centres, swimming pools and libraries.At Monday’s meeting of the local authority, the City West representative said that women have an average of 507 periods in their menstrual lifetime at a cost of around €10,000 per person.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Cllr O’Donovan also explained that 50 per cent of menstruating people aged 12 to 19 say they have experienced issues in paying for sanitary products.“The monthly burden of purchasing sanitary products falls on half of the Limerick population and is an issue of both equality and dignity. It is easy to understand why period poverty is a very real problem issue for low-income households and young people in our city and county,” she commented.“I am calling on Limerick Council to provide a range of free, adequate, safe and suitable sanitary products to be distributed through all public buildings. To start off with this would be in Council-owned buildings, swimming pools, libraries and community centres so as to tackle period poverty and de-stigmatise and normalise menstruation. I urge that we undergo a pilot project for this to start on International Women’s Day next year.”Sinn Féin councillor Sharon Benson, who supported the motion, called for an amendment to be made to include emergency accommodation and homeless shelters.Labour Party councillor Conor Sheehan pointed out that Limerick TD Jan O’Sullivan has done a lot of work on this issue at national level.Fianna Fáil councillor Eddie Ryan wanted to know how the proposal would be funded.“We’ve already had our budget,” he pointed out.Cllr Kevin Sheahan (FF) was also keen to comment on the matter.“I have no problem with this. It shows a maturing process to be thinking this way. I welcome that,” he said.A Council spokesman explained that the issue of the provision of free sanitary products in public buildings was debated in the Oireachtas earlier this year when the Government committed to bringing forward a series of measures to address the matter.“The Council will proceed with implementing the outcome of this process upon its completion at national level,” he said.

The Division Bench of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice Prateek Jalan has directed the concerned authorities to consider the averments made in the petition as a representation and dispose of the same in accordance with law. Filed by Justice For Rights Foundation, the petition has sought for a direction to be issued to the Ministry of I&B and the Ministry of Defence to either delete or modify certain scenes from the Netflix movie Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl, which as per the Petitioners, has shown the Indian Air Force in unduly negative light. The petition states that: ‘Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl has portrayed the Indian Air Force in an undue negative light. Some Scenes and dialogues in the movie are factually incorrect, misleading and portray an inappropriate work culture to glorify the screen character of the former Flight Lieutenant Gunjan Saxena. Several male officers have been projected as misogynists to suit the film’s false narrative. The false and negative portrayal of the Indian Air Force is an abuse of freedom of expression which ought to be censured.’ It is also averred by the Petitioners that they had made a representation before the Dharma Productions whereby the said production company had promised that it will ‘represent Indian Air Force with authenticity and to make all efforts to ensure that the film helps inspire the next generation of IAF officers.’ It is, therefore, argued by the Petitioners that the production house did not modify or delete the scenes objected to by the Air Force, they just simply inserted a disclaimer. Mere disclaimer would not be sufficient and adequate to prevent the presentation of incorrect facts about the Indian Air Force. While highlighting that the Indian Air Force was the first to open all its branches to women officers, including combat roles in 2015, the Petitioners contend that the gender discrimination which has been portrayed in the movie is incorrect, false and misleading. ‘The glorious and prestigious Indian Air Force has ensured that the organisation is gender neutral and has always provided an equal opportunity to both male and female personnel. It is a well-known fact that the Indian Air Force (IAF) has the largest number of women officers serving actively’, the Petitioners argued. It is finally submitted by the Petitioners that the said movie has lowered the standing of the Indian Air Force in the eyes of the citizens and the blatant attempt on the part of the production house of the movie to portray and depict the Indian Air Force in the negative light weakens the courage and morale of the next generation of IAF officers.

St. Joseph County COVID-19 case rate continues to drop

by ,

first_img Twitter St. Joseph County COVID-19 case rate continues to drop By Network Indiana – September 11, 2020 0 340 WhatsApp Facebook Google+ Twitter Facebook CoronavirusIndianaLocalNews Google+ Pinterest Pinterest WhatsApp (Photo supplied/City of South Bend) There is still great concern over the spread of coronavirus in St. Joseph County, even as the county’s coronavirus numbers are getting back under control after a recent surge.In late August, the county’s rate of people testing positive for the virus spiked dramatically to it’s highest rate since April at around 10-percent of tests coming back positive. That number has since gone down to under 4-percent.Still, St. Joseph County Deputy Health Officer Dr. Mark Fox said that is not a reason to pump the brakes on measures to mitigate the spread of the virus, especially with the looming season flu about to make its return. Plus, the county is still primed to see a possible post-Labor Day resurgence.“Because of the overlap in symptoms, essentially any respiratory illness will need to be evaluated for influenza and for COVID,” he said. “You can have both infections simultaneously so having one doesn’t rule out the other.”These concerns are more paramount now, he says, with school districts in the county start to open back up for in-person learning in the coming weeks and with Notre Dame’s home-opening football game against Duke.“Even with reduced capacity at the stadium and no tailgating on campus, we recognize there will be a lot of people will gather to tailgate off-campus or will gather at to watch the game at area restaurants and bars,” Fox added.South Bend Mayor James Mueller shares Fox’s concern but is confident the University of Notre Dame is taking the pandemic seriously, especially among students and staff on the school’s campus.“Notre Dame shows when you have robust testing, you have robust contact tracing, and you figure out isolation of those infected or potentially infected, you can turn an outbreak around fairly quickly,” said Mueller.Since Aug. 3, 626 students and staff members have tested positive for the virus and the school has a 7-day positivity rate of 3.4-percent. It will be mostly students and family in attendance for Notre Dame’s football game this Saturday.
