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. Despite a recent rally in the past few weeks, the FTSE 250 is down by roughly 25% since the start of the year. I believe this has created some great buying opportunities for value investors who are looking to purchase stocks at a price below intrinsic value.FTSE 250 stocksThe FTSE 250 might offer better prospects for growth than the FTSE 100. The FTSE 250, which sits below the FTSE 100, contains the UK’s next 250 biggest listed companies. Legendary investor Jim Slater spent a great deal of time focusing on smaller companies and noted that “elephants don’t gallop”. He believed that large companies were unlikely to achieve the substantial growth that a smaller company stocks might offer.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…Both FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 stocks have been hammered by the COVID-19 crisis. However, by looking back, we can see that the FTSE 250 has weathered the storm better than the FTSE 100. In the past five years, the FTSE 100 has fallen by 17%, whereas the smaller index has dropped by 7%.I believe the following two companies could offer an investor good prospects when this market crash ends.BritvicI love consumable stocks. When people cut back on unnecessary and luxury spending, they will look at their high-cost outgoings. Small-ticket items are usually the last place to get scrutinised by even the most frugal customers.The Britvic (LSE: BVIC) share price has fallen by 23% since the start of the year. This brings its price-to-earnings ratio to just under 12. The company is one of the leading soft drinks businesses in Europe. Some of its brands include Robinsons, Tango, Fruit Shoot, and J2O in its portfolio.The company anticipates its revenue could take a “material hit” from the coronavirus. This is due to the announced closure of trade outlets and restrictions in people movement. Before the outbreak, trading was “broadly in line with expectations”.Relative to its peers, I still believe Britvic is trading at a price below its intrinsic value. Although these are uncertain times, for longer-term investors now could be the time to pick up a bargain.Pets at HomeIn the year to date, the Pets at Home (LSE: PETS) stock price has dropped by approximately 7%, broadly in line with the FTSE 250 index. This might have been because pet shops and vets were deemed essential during the coronavirus outbreak and allowed to remain open. However, Pets at Home has confirmed the shut down of some non-essential parts of its business during the pandemic – like its Groom Room grooming salons – and has implemented government advice about social distancing.In its full-year 2020 trading update, the group stated that it had experienced “exceptional levels of demand, both in-store and online”.Consequently, Pets at Home now expects “pre-tax profit for the full year to be slightly above the top end of the range of current market expectations”. This increase in demand is mostly down to customers bringing their orders forward.The group was well-positioned to meet above-trend levels of demand due to “previous investments in omnichannel capacity, new customer acquisition channels and subscription services”.As most of Pets at Home’s operation is still trading and its profit is above expectations, I believe the market is currently under-pricing this stock.

FTSE 100 dividend shares could become a more appealing means of generating a passive income in retirement as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. You see, the State Pension’s ‘triple lock’ could come under threat to help pay for recently increased government spending. Meanwhile a rising retirement age may mean that many people need a larger retirement nest egg through which to generate a passive income.With interest rates at historic lows, these two FTSE 100 dividend stocks could offer relatively reliable incomes at a time when Cash ISAs offer low returns. As such, now could be the right time to buy them while they still offer attractive yields.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…FTSE 100 utility company National GridNational Grid’s (LSE: NG) recent investor update stated that it has not experienced any material impact from coronavirus. However, it may yet experience delays in areas such as capital spending and debt collection that could lead to a less favourable financial outlook for the business.Despite this, the company’s business model could be among the most resilient in the FTSE 100. It has historically offered defensive characteristics during periods of economic uncertainty. This may make it a relatively popular stock among investors in today’s environment.Unlike the FTSE 100, National Grid’s share price has recorded only a modest fall in 2020. It is down by 3%, while the wider index has declined by 23%. Further outperformance of the index could be ahead for the company if an uncertain economic outlook persists.In terms of its dividend prospects, National Grid has a yield of 5.4%. Alongside its defensive characteristics, this could make it an attractive option for income investors who are struggling to obtain a worthwhile passive income while interest rates are at historic lows.PennonAnother FTSE 100 utility company that could offer income investing potential and defensive investing appeal at the present time is Pennon (LSE: PNN). The environmental infrastructure business recently reported that its trading has been in line with expectations.It also confirmed that it has a solid financial position through which to overcome potential challenges that may be ahead. For example, it had £1.6bn in cash and committed facilities as at 30 March 2020.Pennon recently agreed to the sale of its waste management business Viridor for a total consideration of £4.2bn. The company will now focus on its water and wastewater businesses.The FTSE 100 stock currently yields 4.1% after its 10% share price rise since the start of the year. It plans to outline a new dividend policy over the next couple of months following the completion of the sale of Viridor. Its past dividend growth suggests that it is likely to offer a solid growth in shareholder payouts over the long run that could exceed inflation.When combined with its defensive business model and sound overall strategy, this could make Pennon a worthwhile income investing opportunity over the long run.

He also put it in more contemporary terms, paraphrasing the actor John Wayne: “Courage means being afraid but getting back up on the horse.” Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Presiding Bishop meets with members of Congress for virtual Morning Prayer Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Youth Minister Lorton, VA Rector Shreveport, LA Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Rector Bath, NC Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Trump’s order on ‘anti-Semitism’ aimed at pro-Palestinian movement

first_imgPhoto credit: BDS MovementPresident Donald Trump’s executive order issued Dec.11 would deny federal funds from schools that allow “anti-Semitism” on their campuses, including some anti-Israel activities.  It is intended to squelch defense of — or even discussion about — Palestinian rights, and is the result of intense reactionary efforts to do so.That same day, the New York Times published an op-ed by Jared Kusher, Trump’s son-in-law and adviser, describing anti-Semitism as “targeting the state of Israel” and “claiming its existence is a racist endeavor.” He emphasized: “Anti-Zionism is anti-Semitism,” a view vehemently denounced by the growing global movement which opposes Israeli oppression of Palestinians, occupation of their lands, illegal settlements, evictions of families, blockade of Gaza and racism toward African migrants.Trump’s dictate violates free speech rights by targeting campus groups that criticize Israel’s anti-Palestinian policies and oppose Washington’s political and financial support for Israel — to the tune of billions of dollars a year. It is specifically intended to suppress the burgeoning pro-Palestinian Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign, which has won campus victories throughout the U.S., as enumerated by National Students for Justice in Palestine. The BDS campaign is “a Palestinian-led [global] movement for freedom, justice and equality, [which] upholds the principle that Palestinians are entitled to the same rights as the rest of humanity. Inspired by the South African anti-apartheid movement, the BDS call urges action to pressure Israel to comply with international law.” (bdsmovement.net)Jewish Voice for Peace said Trump’s order creates a “climate of fear,” with college administrations “incentivized” to silence student activism and teaching about Palestine, “while white supremacist organizing, which has been increasing under Trump, will go unchecked.” Israel: oppressor nation, apartheid stateOn July 19, 2018, Israel passed an even more discriminatory law than the 65 existing laws oppressing Palestinians. JVP responded that day: “The Nation-State law establishes that racist and discriminatory practices against Palestinians and non-Jews are legal, [that] only Jewish people have the right to self-determination, demotes Arabic from an official language … [and] places national value on the development of  ‘Jewish settlement.’ ”JVP Deputy Director Rabbi Alissa Wise added:  “The Nation-State bill cements Israel as an apartheid state — from the West Bank to Gaza to Jerusalem to Haifa. Palestinians, no matter where they live, are controlled by an Israeli government and military that robs them of basic rights and freedoms.”In March, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu defined Israel as “the national state, not of all its citizens, but only of the Jewish people.” (npr.org, March 11) Trump: pro-Zionist anti-SemiteTrump is aligned with the Israeli government, unsurprisingly, since  U.S. imperialism has always supported the Zionist state. He moved the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem on May 14, 2018, recognized Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights (part of Syria) and declared legal Israeli settlements in the West Bank, which violate international law and flout U.N. Security Council resolutions.Although the bigot-in-chief feigns concern about anti-Semitism, he resorts to anti-Jewish tropes himself. He even uses anti-Jewish stereotypes when appealing to Jewish audiences for support.  His election campaign ran ads with anti-Semitic overtones.In an affront to Jewish people, but in recognition of Trump’s evangelical Christian base, the White House featured two anti-Semitic ministers at a “Hanukkah” celebration following the executive-order-signing ceremony.  Trump praised Pastor Robert Jeffress, who spoke there. Right-Wing Watch reported Jeffress said in 2011 that Jewish people, Muslims and gay people “are destined for Hell.” (Dec. 13)Rev. John C. Hagee, who founded Christians United for Israel, shockingly said, “The Holocaust was part of God’s plan to return the Jews to Israel”! (NY Times, Dec. 13) He and Jeffress prayed at the U.S. Embassy’s opening in Jerusalem.And who can forget Trump’s calling neo-Nazis “very fine people” after they marched in Charlottesville, Va., chanting, “Jews will not replace us,” while carrying bats and torches and sporting swastikas.Many progressive people call Trump a white nationalist, with good reason.Super-rich promote bigotryAnti-Semitism, Islamophobia, racism, xenophobia and all bigotry are promulgated by the capitalist class which seeks to divide the multinational, multigendered working class and prevent its many sectors from uniting. Conservative politicians, white evangelicals and far-right groups spread this ideology, disseminated through social media and popular culture.Individuals who assault Jewish people, often white male bigots, are also usually hostile to Muslims, people of African descent, Latinx immigrants, women and LGBTQ2+ people. Even if that isn’t the case, as in the recent attack at a Jewish-owned market in Jersey City, N.J., it shows the impact of anti-Semitism, as well as anger at police repression.There has been a rise in hate crimes since Trump moved into the White House. His blatant promotion of racism, xenophobia, anti-Muslim hostility, and misogyny have emboldened the far right. The way to stop anti-Semitism is to build a strong multinational movement that opposes all forms of bigotry. Durkin’s grandparents fled anti-Jewish pogroms in 1907 in Eastern Poland, then annexed by tsarist Russia.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Justice for Walter Wallace!

first_imgOutrage over the police killing of Walter Wallace, Jr., a Black husband, father, son, and twin, erupted throughout his West Philadelphia neighborhood on Oct. 26, as news of the incident spread.  Wallace was shot multiple times by police on his block in front of his mother and neighbors who frantically urged police not to shoot.Protesters clash with police following murder of Walter Wallace on Oct. 26 in Philadelphia.Workers World spoke with MOVE leader Pam Africa, a neighbor of the Wallace family, who gave an account of what neighbors witnessed: “Police were out earlier in the afternoon when his mother reported a domestic incident.  They were at the house but left.  Then police returned a few hours later.  They knew he had mental health issues.  Why didn’t they send counselors?”Wallace’s father, Walter Wallace, Sr. told reporters that “his son struggled with mental health issues and was on medication. Why did they have to gun him down?”Other witnesses stated that Wallace was on the porch with his mother when police returned the second time.  As he stepped off the porch police immediately drew their guns.  His mother ran after him, trying to shield him, telling police he was her son.  As soon as Wallace entered the street, and was still at least ten feet away, police fired over 13 bullets.  It is not clear how many hit Wallace, who was dead upon arrival at a nearby hospital. There are conflicting reports on whether Wallace had a knife.As news of the murder spread, demonstrators gathered at Malcolm X Park in West Philadelphia, and marched to the nearby 18th Police District. The crowd eventually grew to several hundred who confronted the police well into the early hours of the morning.  One police car was overturned and burned.  One officer was struck by a pickup truck, and several others were reportedly struck by bricks and other projectiles. Over 90 arrests were made, with some protesters taken to the 1st Police District several miles away in South Philadelphia.  Videos from the conflict show residents throughout the predominantly Black neighborhood along 52nd Street repeatedly questioning police over their excessive use of force.Community meetings and more protests are being organized. More information can be found at #WalterWallace.Credit: PHOTO:  Saleem HolbrookFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Mystery death of journalist found dead in hotel

first_img January 25, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Mystery death of journalist found dead in hotel Guatemala: 51 Signatories Call For Authorities To Drop Criminal Charges Against Indigenous Journalist Anastasia Mejía GuatemalaAmericas Receive email alerts RSF_en News to go further Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Guatemala Organisation Reporters Without Borders today voiced shock and dismay at the death of prominent journalist Hugo Arce, 56, who was found dead in a Guatemala City hotel room with a bullet through his heart. He worked for the monthly magazine ¿Y Qué?,Police said after preliminary investigations that suicide was the most likely cause of death, but his family said they did not rule out murder.The worldwide press freedom organisation expressed its condolences to the family and urged the local authorities to carry out an impartial investigation.Hugo Arce arrived at the Hotel Conquistador at 5am on 23 January and asked for a room. Four hours later his wife arrived bringing some medication but got no reply from her husband and asked hotel staff to force the door. The journalist’s body was lying on the bed, with a blood-stained towel around his chest and his own revolver in his right hand.He was an award-winning writer and a former contributor to El Gráfico, Siglo Veintiuno and El Imparcial. Since the candidature of current president Álvaro Colom to the presidency in 2003, he had written articles highly critical of his person. First lady, Sandra Torres Colom, started a lawsuit against him in December for “insults and defamation”. The case had been due to open in a few days time.“We are saddened at the death of Hugo Arce, one of the leading figures in the Guatemala press, whose biting and always controversial articles will not be forgotten. Even though suicide seems likely we ask the police not to immediately rule out any lead, including any link with his work,” the organisation said.center_img August 21, 2020 Find out more Guatemala.
