Here are 3 of the best stocks I’d now buy Investors aren’t quite in panic mode right now. But stock markets across the globe are heading sharply lower again as fears of inflation grow. UK shares haven’t been saved from the washout and, as I type, every company on the FTSE 100 (except BT Group) is down in Tuesday trading.My own UK shares portfolio has taken a stonking hit amid the stampede for the exits. But I’m not throwing my hands up in horror. I look for the best stocks to buy, according to what sort of return I can reasonably expect over the long term. And over a number of years (I buy shares I’d be comfortable to hold for a decade), I’m confident the companies I’ve bought for my Stocks and Shares ISA will make me a big fat profit.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…This is why I use stock market dips like this as a chance to look for bargains. Here are what I think are three of the best UK stocks to buy after Tuesday’s dips.#1: Safe as houses?Barratt Developments is a UK share I already own in my ISA. And latest financials from the FTSE 100 housebuilder have affirmed my belief that the blue-chip is a top British stock. Soaring new homes demand in Britain means reservation rates and prices on Barratt’s properties keep rising strongly. In fact the company now expects full-year completions to beat its earlier expectations. It’s true that rising construction costs pose a not-insignificant threat to the builder’s bottom line. But I think it’s too cheap to miss following today’s stock market crash. Barratt trades on a forward price-to-earnings growth (PEG) ratio of 0.2.#2: Georgia on my mindA PEG reading below 1 suggests that a UK share has been undervalued by the market. It’s the same reason why I think TBC Bank could also be one of the best value stocks to buy right now. The FTSE 250 bank trades on a rock-bottom PEG multiple of 0.1 for 2021. It carries a near-5% dividend yield to boot. It’s possible that the profitability of TBC could suffer in the short-to-medium term if central banks keep interest rates locked around current lows. But I’m backing the bank to deliver terrific shareholder returns in the years ahead as economic activity in its Georgian marketplace balloons.#3: A top UK tech shareI believe Kape Technologies could be one of the best tech stocks to buy for this new decade. Why? It’s an expert in the field of fighting cybercrime, a problem that is rocketing in the wake of the Covid-19 crisis. According to BAE Systems, a staggering 74% of banks and insurers have experienced a rise in cybercrime since the pandemic began. It’s an issue that’s not exclusive to financial services firms either, giving Kape excellent revenues opportunities. Now this UK share’s small size may see it struggle against some of the biggest operators like Microsoft and McAfee. But a tiny forward PEG ratio of 0.3 still makes it an attractive UK share, in my opinion. See all posts by Royston Wildlast_img read more

Oppose Trump’s Title X changes

first_imgMarch 5 — President Donald Trump added another notch on his campaign promises belt on Feb. 22. But Planned Parenthood countered that today by filing suit against his proposed changes, which aim to defund the health provider. February 22 was when Trump’s so-called “Health and Human Services Department” issued revised — read “reversed” — rules for Title X. A 1970 addendum to the 1944 Public Health Service Act under President Richard Nixon, Title X is charged with providing “comprehensive family planning and related preventive health services” to 4 million low-income women or anyone not covered by Medicaid.Photo via NWLC TwitterReflecting Trump/Pence right-wing, anti-woman, anti-working class ideology, the new regulations won’t be “comprehensive and preventive.” If instituted in 2020, the revised regulations would deny pregnant people the right to learn anything about abortion — let alone where to get one — from the 4,000 reproductive health care providers enrolled in the program. That’s why pro-choice organizations have nicknamed it “the domestic gag rule,” distinguishing it from the international one Trump instituted in 2017. The new rules mandate that all clinics providing abortions in addition to basic reproductive health care — birth control, wellness checkups, screenings for cancer and sexually transferred infections — must now set up new locations for abortions that are physically and financially separate from other services. Although the rules don’t mention Planned Parenthood, it’s the target of the rule changes — though abortions only account for 3 percent of its health care services. But that hasn’t stopped right-wing attacks on the organization, which is the largest U.S. provider of reproductive health care for poor and working women and gender-nonconforming people — especially women of color, youth, rural residents, women with disabilities and domestic abuse survivors. Planned Parenthood annually provides 41 percent of Title X care in the country. Though anti-choice activists contend that local health centers could serve Planned Parenthood’s current patients if the organization is forced out of the Title X program, Rewire.News reported Feb. 27 that they “would need to increase their caseloads by an average of 70 percent.”The Guttmacher Institute reported Feb. 27: “The Title X gag rule is a blatantly coercive and unethical violation of individuals’ right to high-quality sexual and reproductive health care.” No longer would pregnant patients “receive neutral, factual and nondirective information on all their pregnancy options, including parenting, adoption and abortion,” but the rule requires all patients to be referred for prenatal care, “regardless of their wishes.” In summary: “These restrictions flout medical ethics, dismiss clinical guidelines of leading medical organizations and undermine patients’ right to provide informed consent to their reproductive health care.”Yet the irony is that denying low-wage women and gender nonconforming people access to free or low-cost contraception will only drive up the rate of unintended pregnancies and abortion. Guttmacher statistics show that in 2015 Title X clinics prevented 822,300 unintended pregnancies and 277,800 abortions. Statistics from 2017 show that contraceptives from Title X clinics led to a steep decline in unintended pregnancies and abortions: 44 percent for teenagers and nearly one-third for the entire program.Fightback is underwayThe revised Title X rules were not official until they were posted March 4 on the Federal Register, under a deliberately obscure title, “Compliance with Statutory Program Integrity Requirements.” They are due to go into effect after 60 days, on May 3. But the fightback began right after the changes were first announced on June 1. All the organizations that defend abortion rights and fight for reproductive justice weighed in immediately. On June 8, Rewire.News reported that mayors representing more than 32 million people in 80 cities wrote a letter to HHS denouncing the gag rule. They joined more than 200 U.S. senators and representatives, 14 governors and 274 state legislators demanding quality health care and information. The Pro-Choice Caucus in Congress, led by Diana DeGette (D-Colo.) and Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), issued a statement Aug. 1: “[W]e will not stand for this anti-woman, anti-health agenda.” Colorlines reported Jan. 16 that the caucus will reintroduce the EACH Woman Act, which guarantees access and insurance coverage to any woman seeking an abortion. First introduced in 2015, Lee called it “the boldest pro-choice legislation in history.” If passed, the law would end the 1974 Hyde Amendment, which blocks federal Medicaid funding for abortion services.A Hart Research Associates’ national poll shows that 73 percent of the population opposes Trump’s gag rule. As do more than 110 public health organizations.A long list of leading U.S. medical organizations, including nurses and midwives, registered disapproval. The American Medical Association itemized its objections in a letter to HHS in August, stating the amendments would “undermine patients’ access to high-quality medical care and information, dangerously interfere with the patient-physician relationship, conflict with physicians’ ethical obligations, exclude qualified providers and jeopardize public health.” Washington state’s attorney general was the first to file a preliminary motion to block the rule on Feb. 25, arguing that it violates the Affordable Care Act and a federal provision that requires pregnancy counseling to be nondirective. Attorneys general in Connecticut, Oregon, New York and California are soon to follow. Ten newly elected Democratic governors signed a letter condemning the “politically motivated restrictions” and vowed to find “legal options to block it being implemented.” (Rewire.News, Feb. 27)But the real fightback will be when women, gender-nonconforming people and all their allies take to the streets, as they have for decades. The outpouring of women all over the country demanding free, legal abortion propelled the Supreme Court to legalize abortion in 1973. That’s what is needed now. As shown in every civil rights battle, whether against racism or “sodomy” laws, in every labor battle, only solidarity in struggle wins advances for working and oppressed people.Reproductive justice must become a reality for all gender-oppressed people. Women’s liberation now!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Disinform, amplify and intimidate: attacking press freedom online

first_img Organisation Protecting journalistsOnline freedoms PredatorsFreedom of expressionInternet Related documents predators_online_final.pdfPDF – 2.49 MB Protecting journalistsOnline freedoms PredatorsFreedom of expressionInternet Narendra Modi, Vladimir Putin, Abdel Fattah el-Sisi and Xi Jinping – all of these press freedom predators have understood the advantages to be gained from amplifying their propaganda and discrediting journalism on social networks, leading to new forms of censorship.RSF has devised an infographic that analyses the step-by-step strategy and the human and technical resources that are deployed to this end. Disinformation campaigns are amplified by the troll armies created by these authoritarian regimes. They are often helped by unscrupulous companies that sell them fake accounts and bots – programmes that automatically circulate content on social networks.Once the propaganda messages have been widely disseminated – which has the effect of drowning out reliable journalist content – the troll armies unleash cyber-attacks against independent websites and the personal accounts of independent journalists in order to discredit and silence them. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is investigating and analyzing the way press freedom’s predators have managed to adapt their traditional and authoritarian practices to new technology.

Two of the robberies occurred a single block apart on one street, North Mar Vista Avenue, while the other happened on North Euclid Avenue.The suspects conducted each armed robbery in almost the same fashion – walking up to the victim from behind, threatening the victim with a handgun, and then fleeing in a black SUV with the loot, Pasadena police Watch Commander Lt. Mark Goodman said.Goodman said the first robbery occurred at about 10:20 p.m. in the 400 block of Mar Vista Avenue, when a 26-year-old Pasadena woman was robbed at gunpoint as soon as she arrived home.“The victim was approached by the suspect from behind and pushed to the ground. Once on the ground, the suspect pointed a gun at her, and demanded money,” Goodman said. “The victim gave her gym bag containing her wallet and a cellphone. The suspect walked away north on Mar Vista, entered a black SUV and drove away.”At about 10:52 p.m., a 46-year-old man was robbed as he was walking home in the 600 block of Mar Vista, this time by two male suspects that exited a black SUV as the victim passed by. Goodman said one of the suspects pointed gun at the victim, and another went through his pockets and removed “an undisclosed amount of U.S. currency.”“The first suspect was male, black, of thin build, wore dark-colored pants and was armed with a handgun,” Goodman said. “The other was male, black, thin build, and was wearing a black hat. Once they obtained the loss, both suspects entered the SUV and drove away southbound.”Police believe the same suspects, and possibly others who could have stayed in the black SUV, went on to rob another victim, a 30-year-old man, in the 400 block of N. Euclid Avenue, at about 10:54 p.m.“The victim was walking home when one of the suspects walked up to him holding a handgun and demanded his wallet,” Goodman said. “The second suspect grabbed a beige tote bag the victim was holding and that contained his wallet and cellphone.”As in the first two incidents, the suspects entered a black SUV and drove away south. Goodman said the first suspect was in his 20s, black-haired, thin build and wore a red hooded sweatshirt. The other suspect wore a light-colored sweatshirt.Goodman said none of the victims in the three armed robberies required medical treatment, including the woman who was pushed to the ground in the first incident.Goodman said by the descriptions and the modus operandi, the three robberies appeared to be related.“If we catch them, they are going to be charged with assault and also the armed robbery cases,” Goodman said. “At this point, any information [from the public about the suspects] is welcome by the Pasadena Police Department through our 24-hour dispatch line.”Anyone with information about the suspects and the robbery incidents is advised to call (626) 744-4501.

Gardaí criticised over investigation of teenager’s death

first_imgNo vaccines in Limerick yet by Andrew CareySign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up [email protected] family of a 16-year-old girl who was found submerged at the canal entrance to the Abbey river have accused Gardaí of not fully investigating the circumstances leading up to her deathCity coroner John McNamara had to call order to proceedings on a number of occasions when family members disrupted the inquest with questions and comments directed at gardai.The 16 year old girl, who was described as “level headed” and in good form, was last seen by her sister shortly after 11pm on the night before her body was discovered in the water by a passerby.Garda John O’Connell told the inquest there was no evidence that a minor assault on the girl earlier that night was linked to her death.At this point, the girl’s sister and brother asked why no other depositions were given as they were key to the circumstances on the night and could answer questions the family had about the girl’s death.The teenager was seen running from the High Street area of the city towards Denmark Street after her sister attempted to get her into a car to take her home.The family claimed that she was in the company of others when she ran from her sister.There were heated exchanges as family members told gardaí to tell the truth, claiming that they should have “further investigated” the circumstances and that there was a more sinister background to the girl’s death.Medical evidence indicated toxic levels of alcohol along therapeutic levels of diazepam and alprazolam. According to the pathology report, death was due to drowning.The coroner said that while he accepted that the girl did not have suicidal thoughts and there was no evidence of foul play, an open verdict would be the most appropriate one.One of the girl’s sisters responded: “Ye just want to open and shut this case so that it goes away – the questions will never go away for us”.Her mother said that “kids go to the canal for a drink, we all know that – they don’t go there to jump in the river. She was a happy girl and had the world in front of her. She didn’t know what she was doing but my daughter didn’t jump, I believe she was pushed.”Asked by Mr McNamara if there were any other lines of inquiry both Inspector Seamus Ruane and Garda John O’Connell said that the investigation had concluded and there was no other evidence.“Nobody saw her fall in. Nobody saw her jump in or nobody saw her being pushed so this inquest must return an open verdict”, the coroner said.
