10 FTSE 250 stocks I’d buy for 2021

first_img Image source: Getty Images Markets around the world are reeling from the coronavirus pandemic…And with so many great companies trading at what look to be ‘discount-bin’ prices, now could be the time for savvy investors to snap up some potential bargains.But whether you’re a newbie investor or a seasoned pro, deciding which stocks to add to your shopping list can be daunting prospect during such unprecedented times.Fortunately, The Motley Fool is here to help: our UK Chief Investment Officer and his analyst team have short-listed five companies that they believe STILL boast significant long-term growth prospects despite the global lock-down…You see, here at The Motley Fool we don’t believe “over-trading” is the right path to financial freedom in retirement; instead, we advocate buying and holding (for AT LEAST three to five years) 15 or more quality companies, with shareholder-focused management teams at the helm.That’s why we’re sharing the names of all five of these companies in a special investing report that you can download today for FREE.

Enter Your Email Address As the UK gears up for the rollout of Covid-19 vaccines in the near future, the outlook for the economy is improving. As such, I’m looking to buy a basket for FTSE 250 growth stocks for 2021. I reckon these shares could yield substantial returns in the years ahead as the economy recovers from the 2020 setback. FTSE 250 growth stocks I think companies that have performed well during the crisis could be some of the best investments to own coming out of it. There are quite a few businesses have reported strong revenue performances over the past few months. These include Games Workshop, Watches of Switzerland and AJ Bell. 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…All these groups have a strong competitive advantage and target key markets. Games Workshop, for example, has a relatively small customer base, but they’re willing to spend large sums with the business. The same goes for the UK’s biggest Rolex retailer, Watches of Switzerland. This has helped these firms keep their heads above water during the pandemic. AJ Bell’s advantage is its low-cost offering, which has helped attract investors to the platform. As the UK economy returns to growth, I think this FTSE 250 stockbroker may continue to attract new investor cash. Other firms that have registered strong growth in the pandemic are Computacenter, Kainos and Softcat. Over the past few months, companies have been forced to invest in technology to keep their businesses operating. This has been a boon for specialist organisations. As the world becomes more reliant on technology, I think this trend will continue. With that in mind, I reckon building a portfolio of tech stocks could be a sensible idea. These companies are already highly profitable and may become more so as the world becomes more tech-enabled. Rebuilding Governments around the world are already planning massive spending plans to help the world recover from the Covid-19 slump. These spending plans are already pushing the prices of essential commodities like copper, iron ore, gold and silver higher. Therefore, I’m looking at buying operators that could benefit from this theme. Hochschild Mining and Kaz Minerals may benefit directly from rising commodity prices. Meanwhile, companies like Balfour Beatty and Morgan Sindall could benefit from increased construction spending. As the construction and mining industries are so notoriously difficult to navigate, I plan to own a basket of these companies rather than pick individual stocks in their sectors. This should help me benefit from the overall trend while minimising risk if one group starts to struggle. The bottom line I think that by acquiring a basket of FTSE 250 stocks, like those listed above, investors should be able to ride the UK’s economic recovery in 2021. These companies all have bright prospects and have shown they can withstand the Covid-19 storm over the past few months. As such, I’m optimistic about their futures.  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.

RSF joins letter to St Louis Mayor urging inquiry into police conduct towards journalists

first_imgNews Reporters Without Borders (RSF) signed the following joint letter to the St Louis Mayor’s office urging an investigation into police conduct towards journalists covering protests in the city over the past two months. Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says Organisation United StatesAmericas Condemning abuses Judicial harassment WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists RSF_en June 7, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information Follow the news on United States News News News United StatesAmericas Condemning abuses Judicial harassment Receive email alerts October 25, 2017 RSF joins letter to St Louis Mayor urging inquiry into police conduct towards journalists Honorable Lyda KrewsonMayor for the City of St. LouisSt. Louis City Hall – Room 2001200 Market StreetSt. Louis, Missouri 63103Via email: [email protected] 24, 2017Dear Mayor Lyda Krewson,We at the Committee to Protect Journalists, an independent press freedom advocacy group, along with the organizations listed below, write to express our concern about police conduct towards reporters covering protests in St. Louis in recent weeks.We were pleased to see that you pledged a full and fair investigation into civilian complaints about police conduct during the protests, which erupted in mid-September over the acquittal of a former St. Louis police officer who shot a black man. We applaud your calls for an independent investigation by the U.S. Attorney’s Office. As you coordinate this investigation with the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department and the Civilian Oversight Board, we urge you to include a thorough consideration of the impact of law enforcement actions on freedom of the press.At least 10 journalists have been arrested while covering the protests, according to the U.S. Press Freedom Tracker, a database of press freedom incidents in the United States created with the support of 30 free expression and media organizations. Journalists have reported to the tracker that they were pepper-sprayed, cursed at, mocked, and treated with excessive force by police. Journalists who identified themselves and showed press credentials were arrested nonetheless.Police arrested Jon Ziegler, an independent livestreamer, on two occasions. On September 17, police officers pepper-sprayed him in the face and pushed his head to the ground before arresting him, Ziegler told press freedom groups. He also alleged that police mocked his video reporting, calling him a “superstar.” Ziegler was arrested again on October 3.At least four other journalists–independent documentary filmmakers Drew Burbridge and Jennifer Burbridge, St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter Mike Faulk, and Getty Images photographer Scott Olson– were arrested and taken into custody on September 17. At least five journalists–Ty Bayliss and Jordan Chariton of The Young Turks, Al Neal from People’s World, and independent journalists Aminah Ali and Daniel Shular–were arrested on October 3. Shular was detained for 18 hours even though he displayed accreditation, did not hear an order to disperse, and was never told he was under arrest or read a Miranda warning, according to his lawyer.At least six journalists reported to the U.S. Press Freedom Tracker that police used excessive force at the scene. Faulk alleges that police officers knocked him to the ground and pepper-sprayed him in the face; one officer used his foot to push Faulk’s head to the pavement, according to a letter Faulk’s attorney sent to your office. Drew Burbridge has filed a lawsuit alleging that police beat him and repeatedly pepper sprayed him in the face. At least two journalists–Fusion videographer Chris Burke and University of Missouri student journalist Davis Winborne–allege that police pepper sprayed protesters and journalists indiscriminately.All of the journalists arrested or assaulted were doing their job–one that often brings them to the scene of protests and law enforcement operations for the vital role of documenting these events for the public.Press freedom groups have contacted the City Counselor’s Office to urge prosecutors not to go forward in pressing charges. The office told CPJ that the charges are “under advisement” and that prosecutors have a year to decide whether to proceed.This is not the first time that journalists have faced arrest and assault in the greater St. Louis area. According to the Freedom of the Press Foundation, around two dozen reporters were arrested in protests in Ferguson, Missouri in the fall of 2014. While these arrests fell outside city bounds, this combined legacy is a troubling signpost for journalists’ safety in the St. Louis area. It is more important than ever that the city take concrete steps to show its commitment to press freedom.Journalists should not have to fear for their physical well-being at the hands of law enforcement when they cover newsworthy events. We ask you to conduct a thorough examination of cases in which reporters were assaulted or arrested and discipline individual officers found to have behaved unacceptably. We hope the investigation will also spur proactive steps, such as increased training for police officers and clear, enforced policies on how to deal with the press during protests.Sincerely,Alexandra EllerbeckNorth America Program CoordinatorCommittee to Protect JournalistsAkili-Casundria RamsessExecutive DirectorNational Press Photographers AssociationAlfredo CarbajalPresidentAmerican Society of News EditorsBobby MagillPresidentSociety of Environmental JournalistsBernard C.

Nikita Edwards: Linden’s newest attorney-at-law

first_imgBy Kizzy ColemanIn a simple but significant ceremony held at the High Court last week, Nikita Edwards was admitted to the Bar Association of Guyana.Her words after taking her oath before Chief Justice Roxanne George were, “Don’t let anybody tell you that you cannot do it, and do not let any situation tell you that you cannot do it. If you want it, fight for it.”Attorney-at-LawNikita EdwardsAnd a fight it was for the 30-year-old Edwards, who hails from the mining town of Linden. Born as one of four children to parents whose occupations were cook and baker respectively, this vibrant young woman knew at an early age that any dream of hers had to be attained through diligent efforts.Edwards was taken under the wings of an aunt and a grandmother who provided for her, but she yet faced many financial challenges. Fortunately for her, though, her potential was noticed by many strangers, who assisted her.From a young age, she developed a love for the NBC hit series Law and Order, which focuses on the apprehension and prosecution of criminals.Edwards relayed: “Growing up, I always watched Law and Order. I always admired how the lawyers would dress and go to court; and one time, my grandmother told me, I was sleeping and in my sleep I was yelling, ‘Objections, Your Honour!’ So, from a young age, I always wanted to become a lawyer,” Edwards detailed.After completing her secondary education, Edwards knew that she wanted a career in the judicial field; however, her financial circumstances were such that would prevent her from pursuing same, so for a little while Edwards contemplated teaching, but later questioned that decision.“Sometimes you have so many dreams, but you also know that your family would not have the financial means to assist you. And for some people, you throw away your dreams because you also know that, and the reality is you don’t have it. But I was encouraged to keep pressing. Like I said, I contemplated teaching, but then how can I be a teacher and tell children that they could be the best that they could be when I myself wasn’t even trying to be the best that I could be?” Edwards reasoned.Nevertheless, she commenced her studies at the University of Guyana in 2009 with the belief that God would bless her efforts; and bless her efforts He did.Reflecting now on her achievement, Edwards commended herself for taking the leap and hoping for the best possible outcome to her journey.“You ask yourself, ‘How am I going to find $6 million to pay for law school?’ I still needed to live, I still needed to eat. I applied for a scholarship and I got through, and I knew that that was the grace of God. And I’m here today. Hugh Wooding was two of the best years of my life. I met folks that I would keep forever. I wouldn’t trade my experiences for anything in this world,” the attorney said.Further, Edwards expressed her gratitude towards her family and friends who, according to her, made it possible for her. And, as such, she shares her accomplishments with them.Her journey, she hopes, acts as a testimony to encourage young persons in Guyana with a fire in their hearts for something great to keep pushing after their dreams.Justice George encouraged Edwards thus: “Legal Aid collaborates with Rights of the Child…I’m happy that you have started there. Expect to keep the high standard of work, and always overcome obstacles. Be assured that that part of your journey has ended, but similar assiduous is needed.”She added, “Be careful, and be frank with clients. Earn your reputation. Start from day one. Command the respect of the court and your colleagues; and do yourself, family, and whoever you may work for proud.”last_img read more

Tiny Enceladus Beats Saturn in Plasma Output

first_imgAn astonishing case of the tail wagging the dog: tiny moon is major source of plasma in Saturn’s magnetosphere.Take all the plasma sources at Saturn: the planet, the rings, and the icy moons as far out as Titan. None of them holds a candle to the plasma output of Enceladus, a little moon no wider than the state of Iowa.Enceladus orbiting outside Saturn and its ringsThe south pole geysers of Enceladus pump out 93 kilograms of ice per second. The water molecules become ionized and are swept into Saturn’s magnetosphere. A press release from University College London (UCL) says this is the main source of plasma in the magnetosphere, an astonishing output for a tiny moon, only matched by the plasma being ejected from Saturn’s ionosphere.Saturn’s moon Enceladus with “Tiger Stripes” fissures where geysers eruptA journal paper in the Journal of Geophysical Research confirms the winner based on observations taken by the Cassini spacecraft when it passed through the magnetotail in 2006.Saturn’s magnetosphere is a complex multicomponent plasma system with several internal plasma sources in addition to the solar wind. The largest internal plasma source is from photoionization and electron impact ionization of neutral water and nitrogen molecules from the icy moon Enceladus. These ions are subsequently processed by photolytic and radiolytic processes to produce H+ and a variety of water group ions such as OH+ and O+ that are collectively referred to as W+. The other natural satellites, the rings, and Saturn’s atmosphere are minor internal sources. The solar wind also plays a role as an external plasma source. A number of studies have focused on the moons, rings, and solar wind as plasma sources, to constrain the extent to which they drive the system. In this paper we provide the first in situ constraints on the role that the ionosphere plays as a mass source for Saturn’s magnetotail, via the first observation of ionospheric outflow at a giant planet.Such ionospheric outflow occurs on Earth, but this is the first observation at another planet. Jupiter, too, gets plasma from a moon that is tiny compared to its planet. The press release states:In the case of Saturn, its moon Enceladus ejects water from its icy plumes which is ionised into H2O+, O+, OH+ and then transported throughout the magnetosphere. For Jupiter, its moon Io provides plasma from its sulphurous volcanoes whereas Earth’s magnetosphere is strongly driven by the solar wind but fed by a polar wind from the ionosphere – the atmospheric layer ionised by solar and cosmic radiation.The contribution by Enceladus to Saturn’s environment has been known since Cassini arrived at Saturn, but this is the first time Saturn’s ionospheric contribution has been published. One might expect that the planet’s contribution of plasma to its magnetosphere would swamp the input from a tiny moon with one 1/50,000th its mass, but Saturn barely keeps up with its tiny satellite:The Cassini mission previously established the importance of Enceladus as the dominant mass source for Saturn’s magnetosphere but this is the first time that Saturn’s ionosphere has been seen providing, at times, a similar plasma production rate.Enceladus outputs so much mass, it creates a vast ring of fine particles from Mimas to Titan.Diagram of Saturn’s E-ring created by EnceladusExpressions of amazement in the paper and the press release are mild for such an unexpected discovery:Professor Andrew Coates, a co-author on the paper and Cassini co-investigator, said: “Cassini never ceases to amaze us. First, it found that the plume of Enceladus is the main source of the water-rich magnetosphere which ultimately escapes from the planet. Now, we find that solar wind compression allows much lighter hydrogen ions to escape from Saturn’s upper atmosphere at times.”Which is more amazing, though? Who would have expected a moon 300 miles in diameter to beat a planet 75,000 miles in diameter? Saturn with its rings and all its other moons combined can hardly keep up with the ionized mass output of this little moon.There is more than just plasma coming out of Enceladus. There is so much ice and dust coming out of its insides, it creates a whole ring around Saturn (the E-ring). The paper and press release, of course, fail to ask whether this rate of mass loss could keep going for 4.5 billion years. The burden is on the moyboys to explain this.

Pharma Goes Farmville: PR Through Social Gaming

first_img4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People… 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout Tags:#biz#gaming Related Posts center_img 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… christina ortiz If you’ve ever dreamed of running your own pharmaceutical company without the gargantuan research costs and pesky lawsuits, have we got a game for you. German drug maker Boehringer Ingelheim is betting that social gaming will raise its profile and brighten its prospects.Boehringer Ingelheim launched a beta version of the social networking game called Syrum last week. It’s the industry’s first social game, the company says. John Pugh, Director of Digital for Boehringer Ingelheim told PSFK that the social media game, developed over two years by a team of researchers, futurists and branding experts, aims to “promoting science and innovation to the digital community in a fun and engaging way.” Or maybe it’s a way to make people feel friendlier toward an industry in crisis as patents expire for blockbuster drugs, FDA approval costs stifle innovation, and popular drugs get pulled from the market due to harmful side effects.Similar to Zynga’s Farmville, Syrum lets users build and run their own pharmaceutical company. They can explore their virtual lab to create and discover new medicines and distribute them to ailing patients. Instead of trading crops or cattle, players can trade molecular compounds with others to find cures for certain diseases. In each chapter, players are given a disease or pandemic to cure. The medicine will hit shelves when the finished product is ready, taking players through the phases of discovery to testing and clinical trial. Players can share their progress with Facebook friends and invite others to play. The can even poach their friends’ researchers and then send a gift to make up for it.  It looks as though the game will include incessant news feed updates and requests, among Farmville’s most irritating features. Still, an engaging game about how the pharmaceutical industry works is bound to play out in positive PR.last_img read more

Roundup: 5 Cutting-Edge Apps for the Modern Filmmaker

first_imgTechnology and filmmaking meet in these innovative apps that are changing the game for digital filmmakers and video producers.Cover image by GaudiLab.While they may only be separated by a few hundred miles of highway in California, Silicon Valley and Hollywood seem worlds apart in terms of their thinking and style. Silicon Valley, the hotbed of innovation and future-minded technologies stands in stark contrast to the classical Hollywood film industry based on analog film stock and traditional box office values.However, as filmmaking becomes more digital and more diverse, technology and film production are beginning to integrate with some exciting new apps, platforms, and services. Let’s look at some of the most innovative developments for the modern digital filmmaker.1. Illuminati Light MeterImage via PremiumBeat.First off, let’s look at one of the most impressive cutting-edge technologies to go digital — light meters. Particularly the Illuminati meter, which comes with a meter that connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth. From the companion app, you can read everything from color temperature to video light exposure to stills-style light exposure and chromaticity. While it is one of the pricier offerings on this list, it’s actually quite a bargain — and much handier than traditional analog light meters.Read more about the Illuminati Light Meter in this hands-on review.2. Script Transferring AppsIf there’s one aspect of filmmaking that’s archaically behind the times, it’s the scripts. Especially when you consider lengthy revision processes, the concept of printing out new versions of scripts for all of your cast and crew is a waste of time and paper. Luckily, apps like Scriptation are scrambling to fill the void for a fully transferable and adaptable scripts. The app, featured in the video above, has been used on shows like Stranger Things, The Walking Dead, and Silicon Valley.You can find out more about Scriptation at their website.3. Virtually Practice Your PitchImage by SFIO CRACHO.While most of these apps assist with the different periods of production (pre through post), there’s another element that you should consider. Pitching projects, whether to clients, investors, or film studios, is a huge part of the film and video world and is perhaps one of the most crucial skills to cultivate. Virtual Reality is now helping people practice public speaking and overcome anxiety, with a new app called PanicLobster. The app helps everyone from filmmakers to entrepreneurs practice their one-minute pitches or presentations.VR is not limited to just film and video either. Check out this article at Shutterstock about other ways VR is making the world a better place.4. Lighting Cue SoftwareFor your gaffers and lighting department, the Cuelist is a new program designed to update the process of marking and sharing the placement of tech cues throughout your production process. The software is specifically tailored for lighting designers, who spend lots of time and energy marking scripts and shot lists with notes about lighting cues, setups, and workflows.Watch the video above or check out the Cuelist’s website for more info.5.
