Worried about sinking markets? I’d buy this growth stock to shield my Stocks and Shares ISA “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Stock markets are continuing mild revivals in Wednesday business. The FTSE 100 is up 50-odd points, as I type, as investors, still buoyed by news of fresh Federal Reserve interest rate cuts yesterday, have stepped tentatively back into the market.It’s clearly not the time to get too excited though. The Footsie is still around 800 points off the levels just before coronavirus panic set in. The COVID-19 infection rate also continues to climb with new cases emerging in previously unaffected countries. So there’s still plenty of scope for fresh bouts of weakness.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…It pays, then, to remain well invested in so-called safe-haven stocks, i.e. those whose defensive utilities make them ideal picks for times of social, economic and political upheaval like these.A great safe havenDefence company Avon Rubber (LSE: AVON) is one such flight-to-safety share I think’s worth buying today. I recently commented how BAE Systems is a worthwhile buy in today’s climate, owing to a global focus on defence, and thus the resilient nature of Western weapons spend.The same can be said of this FTSE 250 share, a supplier of protective masks to militaries, police services and security services all over the globe. It’s why share price losses here have been minimal in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak and why, following modest gains in midweek trading, Avon is a mere whisker off February’s all-time closing highs of £27.80 per share.Corking contract newsIn fact, I’d say the release of exciting contract news in recent sessions cements its place as a brilliant share to buy in these uncertain times. First, Avon announced in late February it had received a £21m order from the US Department of Defense (DoD) under the ‘M69 Joint Service Aircrew Mask for Strategic Aircraft’ framework agreement.And, just this week, Avon said it had been awarded a four-year, dual-source framework contract to supply the US Army with its ‘Vital Torso Protection X-Side Ballistic Insert’ body armour plates. First orders will come in 2021 (on receipt of product approvals) and the terms of the agreement will see Avon compete for each order of the $265m contract.The deal spectacularly vindicates Avon’s recent decision to buy 3M’s ballistic-protection business, a move designed to boost the company’s links with the DoD and thus boost order levels. That latest contract bolsters Avon’s medium-term profits outlook and is a positive omen over what to possibly expect in this new decade.A bright futureCity analysts are certainly quite bullish over what to expect in the nearer term. They see Avon’s earnings rising 5% in the fiscal year to September, before ripping 17% higher next year.Avon doesn’t come cheap. At current prices, it trades on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 28 times. I reckon this a worthwhile premium to pay though. Its market-leading products are selling like hotcakes across the globe. And rising geopolitical uncertainty should keep orders booming from major clients such as the DoD.center_img 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.

Now there’s even an app for the Federal Bureau of Investigation

Please enter your email address here Please enter your name here Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate You’re watching your local news on TV when you see a story on a wanted fugitive in your community. The person looks like someone you’ve seen living a few blocks away. You grab your cell phone, open the FBI Wanted app, search your city name, and quickly locate the individual’s profile with additional pictures and information. The similarity is striking. So you tap the “Call the FBI” button in the app and report what you know.This situation illustrates exactly the kind of technology-driven crime-fighting that is now possible—thanks to a new FBI Wanted mobile application launching today.The app allows the public to view, search, sort, filter, and bookmark the full range of information issued by the FBI. That includes pictures and descriptions of wanted fugitives, missing persons, crime suspects, deceased victims, and others the Bureau is seeking to locate or identify.The app is free and works on Apple and Android devices, including smartphones, iPads, and iPods. Depending on your device, it can be downloaded from the Apple App store or Google Play.“Since the earliest days of the Bureau—when wanted flyers were tacked to post office walls—the public has played a vital role in helping the FBI and its partners locate criminals on the run and solving cases of all kinds,” says Christopher Allen, head of the Investigative Publicity and Public Affairs Unit in the FBI’s Office of Public Affairs. “This app is designed to put another digital tool in the hands of concerned citizens so they can help protect their families and communities.”The information in the app is also posted on the FBI website, but the app includes several features and capabilities that make it especially fast and easy to use. For example, with the app you can:Access information in one user-friendly interface, with a single tap of the app icon bringing up all Wanted profilesTake advantage of a suite of search and filtering optionsEasily report information by using buttons that either call the FBI or link directly to the Bureau’s online form for providing tipsBookmark individual profiles with one touch, adding them to a favorites page so you can easily access them laterCustomize your home screen to display the information that is most relevant or interesting to youAlong with the TV news scenario described above, the app could be useful in a number of situations. You might see someone who is acting in a suspicious or dangerous manner and wish to determine whether that person is wanted by the FBI. Or you might be interested in which cases the Bureau needs help with in your area.FBI Wanted is the third mobile app built by the Bureau. The Child ID app, introduced in 2011, allows parents to electronically store their children’s pictures and vital information in case their kids go missing; it has been downloaded nearly 350,000 times. The FBI Bank Robbers app was launched in August 2016, publicizing unknown violent and serial robbers sought by the Bureau.“Thousands of cases have been solved over the years thanks to the watchful eyes of concerned citizens, and that has made the country a safer place for all of us,” said Allen. “The FBI Wanted app will help carry on this tradition of partnership. We encourage everyone to download it and report any pertinent tips to the FBI.”center_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply The Anatomy of Fear Helps Public Report Suspects, View Active Cases and Morefrom FBI.gov Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.last_img read more

She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. Stephen Dunmore, Chief Executive at the Fundraising Regulator, said:“The public and charities are using crowdfunding and online donation sites more and more to raise funds for causes they care deeply about. It is very important that there is support for both the legal requirements and good practice in fundraising set out in the Code of Fundraising Practice. We look forward to building good working relationships with the online giving platforms to be sure they support the Code and can help develop it in future as well as to assure the public in particular that they can donate safely when they use the platform of their choice.”  127 total views,  1 views today Tagged with: Charity Commission crowdfunding Fundraising Regulator online fundraising sites The Charity Commission and the Fundraising Regulator met last week with Chief Executives and senior representatives from 14 of the UK’s fundraising platforms with the aim of improving transparency around online giving.The summit sought to agree principles that ensure individuals are supported when they set up or donate to online appeals, increase public trust and confidence in charity and online giving, and ensure that charitable resources are used effectively.Areas discussed included:Advising individuals on the responsibility they are taking when setting up a page for ensuring funds raised are properly held on trust, and the advantages and disadvantages of different types of appealProviding support and advice to individuals in managing successful appealsProviding support and advice to the general public on the advantages and disadvantages of donating through different routes, including the limits of the Charity Commission’s remit over person to person fundraisingProviding transparent information about fees and chargesProtecting charitable funds from fraud and misrepresentation, and the circumstances in which funds may be quarantined or pages closedThe summit also looked at whether self-regulation is the most appropriate way of ensuring high standards and transparency.Helen Stephenson, Chief Executive at the Charity Commission, said:“The emergence of new crowdfunding and online giving sites has had a positive impact on charitable giving in the UK, making it easy for the public to donate to a wide range of causes and respond quickly to large-scale disasters.

Saudi moves threaten wider war

first_imgStunning events in Saudi Arabia have stepped up the threat of a wider war in the Middle East.The prime minister of Lebanon, Saad al-Hariri, is being held captive in the Saudi capital of Riyadh, after the Crown Prince forced him to announce his resignation. More than 200 leaders, including billionaire media moguls, 11 royal princes and several major investors, have been arrested on corruption charges and confined to a luxury hotel.The Saudi regime, which has been waging a brutal war against the people of Yemen, declared what amounts to war against both the Hezbollah organization in Lebanon and the government of Iran, after a missile was launched from Yemen toward Riyadh. (newsweek.com, Nov. 7)The Israeli regime under Benjamin Netanyahu has chimed in with its own war threats against Lebanon and Hezbollah, and Washington has voiced its strong approval of Saudi actions.Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman (MbS), nicknamed “Mr. Everything” because he controls the military, the economy and all foreign affairs, is now the apparent heir to the throne.The Brookings Institution wrote on June 23: “The two-and-a-half-year-old war in Yemen is his signature policy initiative. The Saudis are bogged down in a quagmire with enormous consequences for the people of Yemen. For Yemenis, the war has brought mass starvation and malnutrition. Cholera has broken out. A child dies every ten minutes as a consequence of the war. Seven million people are at acute risk. The United Nations has called the crisis the worst humanitarian disaster in the world.“And the son [MbS] is also behind the Saudi quarrel with Qatar. The Gulf Cooperation Council is broken into hostile camps. The Saudis have now produced 13 demands that would reduce Qatar to being a satellite of the kingdom.”Oil ‘denationalization’In early 2016, in the midst of the global oil glut that saw prices drop by more than 50 percent, MbS announced that 5 percent of Saudi Aramco, the Saudi national oil company, would be put up for sale on a major stock market using an initial public offering, or IPO.Imperialist bankers and oil corporations were delighted at the prospect of getting a slice of ownership of Saudi oil, which the Saudi regime values at around $2 trillion. U.S. oil companies had owned Saudi oil until 1972, but by 1980, the Saudi monarchy had purchased control of all its oil facilities and reserves.The higher the world price of oil, the more money the IPO will generate for the monarchy. But with the easing of sanctions on Iran, plus the fracking boom in the U.S., some in the Saudi kingdom obviously question the wisdom of selling a share of the country’s major asset when oil prices are low.With the full support of U.S. imperialism, including a $350 billion arms deal with the U.S. signed last May, the Saudi regime has escalated its conflict with Iran, its major competitor. Not only has it attacked Iran-backed organizations in Yemen, it has also supplied major aid to military groups fighting the Syrian government, including ISIS. And it has tried to prevent the Iran-supported Hezbollah faction from being part of the Lebanon government. All of this is with the full support of U.S. imperialism.But these schemes have failed. The Syrian government is on the verge of victory. The Yemeni resistance has fought off the indiscriminate bombing and blockade by the Saudi regime and even managed to construct a missile that it launched toward the Saudi capital on Nov. 4. The Saudi regime and the Pentagon both claim that the missile was Iranian-made, which the Iranian government denies.The main Yemeni group that the Saudis are attacking is the Houthis. The Houthis’ news channel, Al-Masirah, said on Twitter: “We repeatedly affirmed that capitals of aggression states won’t be spared from our ballistic missiles in retaliation for the constant targeting of innocent civilians.” (nytimes.com, Nov. 4)And Hezbollah is an active participant in the delicately balanced coalition government in Lebanon.Saudi night of the long knivesIn the face of all these failures, MbS decided to imprison any possible opponents, including the visiting prime minister of Lebanon and the 200 or more leaders of the Saudi kingdom.Just before these arrests, Jared Kushner, Donald Trump’s son-in-law and a top advisor, visited Saudi Arabia and held lengthy meetings with the prince. Trump himself tweeted after the arrests: “I have great confidence in King Salman and the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, they know exactly what they are doing,” That was at the same time that the Saudi regime declared it was at war with both Hezbollah and Iran.The right-wing Israeli regime is boasting of its readiness to launch a new invasion of Lebanon. “ ‘If a war breaks out in the northern arena we need to act with full force from the beginning,’ Israel’s outgoing air force commander, Maj. Gen. Amir Eshel, told a conference. ‘What we could do in 34 days during the second Lebanon war we can now do in 48 to 60 hours. The growth of our strength has not been linear.’ ” (theguardian.com, Nov. 11)Because of imperialism’s insatiable greed for Middle Eastern oil, what ought to be a source of wealth to the people of the region has turned into the root of conflict and terrible suffering.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Many professors reported that it was difficult to find a two-and-a-half-hour block that coordinated with everyone’s schedule.After surveying the final exam schedules from almost 30 institutions, the associate deans and University Registrar Mary Kincannon decided to reduce the time between exams from 60 minutes to 30 minutes, create another afternoon exam slot and assign an exam time for all classes beginning at 6:30 p.m. or later.“Now classes beginning at 6:00 or 6:15 have a time slot, and classes beginning at 6:30 or later have a specific time slot,” Kincannon said.The associate deans and university’s registrar have been working for several months to revamp the final exam schedule to better serve those students who take night classes. The model that TCU currently uses dates back to the mid-1990s. Kincannon said revisions were needed due to growth in enrollment and the number of class sections.Kate Edwards, a sophomore strategic communications major, said that even though her 5 p.m. night class did not interfere with her testing schedule, she wishes she could have taken her final earlier. “I would rather take it anytime before five,” Edwards said. “After then, it gets in the way of sleeping and studying for other exams.”With the approval of the Faculty Senate, the university is testing the final exam schedule for the Spring 2018 semester.

Netizen freed for lack of evidence in lèse-majesté case

first_imgNews News Receive email alerts ThailandAsia – Pacific Organisation News August 21, 2020 Find out more Follow the news on Thailand A Bangkok court acquitted the netizen Surapak Phuchaisaeng two days ago of charges of insulting the king (lèse-majesté), for which he had been remanded in custody since September last year. Reporters Without Borders is satisfied with the outcome of this case. “This case, involving a year in custody, underlines the failings of the Thai judicial system, particularly concerning allegations of lèse-majesté,” the press freedom organization said.“Far too often, baseless charges of lèse-majesté are used as a means of silencing dissident voices. Such misuse of article 112 of the criminal code is also employed for personal reasons.“The police, who often face allegations of corruption, habitually do not keep a suspect informed when they open an investigation.” Phuchaisaeng was arrested on 2 November last year after allegedly posting photos, video and messages on Facebook. He was refused bail for the whole of the intervening year. The court gave the accused the benefit of the doubt, ruling that the prosecution had failed to prove that the Facebook account where the content alleged to have insulted the king was posted belonged to him. The newspaper The Nation said the account in question could not have belonged to Phuchaisaeng since someone logged into it twice while he was in prison.Doubts about the credibility of the charges arose after he was arrested. His computer was switched on several times while he was in custody and police forensic experts had not yet examined it. In view of the weakness of the case, the public prosecutor should not appeal against the verdict. The netizen himself has not yet decided whether to bring a counter suit.Thailand is ranked 137th of 179 countries in the 2011-2012 World Press Freedom Index compiled by Reporters Without Borders and is among countries under surveillance in the list of Internet enemies, updated by the organization in March last year.

first_imgsshepard/iStock(HARMONTOWN, Miss.) — Ole Miss student Alexandria “Ally” Kostial will be laid to rest on Saturday, one week after the 21-year-old was killed.Her body, riddled with multiple gunshot wounds, was discovered July 20 in Harmontown, Mississippi, about 30 miles from campus.Kostial’s Ole Miss classmate, 22-year-old Brandon Theesfeld, was arrested for murder Monday.No motive has been released.Theesfeld, who is in custody in Lafayette County, Mississippi, has not yet entered a plea.
