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. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Peter Stephens | Wednesday, 4th March, 2020 | More on: BARC RIO Buying any stock following a significant price fall could prove to be a risky move in the short run. The FTSE 100, for example, has declined significantly in recent weeks, and further falls could be ahead.However, through buying high-quality companies that have recovery potential, you may be able to obtain favourable risk/reward ratios that improve your long-term financial prospects.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…With that in mind, here are two FTSE 100 stocks that have declined by over 15% in recent weeks. They could deliver successful share price turnarounds in the coming years.Rio TintoAn increasingly uncertain near-term outlook for the world economy has contributed to a 15% fall in the Rio Tinto (LSE: RIO) share price in the past six weeks. With the company’s focus being on supplying iron ore, and the world’s largest market for the commodity being China, it is unsurprising that the mining stock’s valuation has come under severe pressure.Looking ahead, investor sentiment may continue to be weak in the short run. However, Rio Tinto’s strong balance sheet and competitive cost base may mean that it is able to successfully overcome its present challenges to post improving financial performance in the long run. Furthermore, with interest rates having been cut in a range of countries, the global macroeconomic outlook may be supported by accommodative monetary policies.Since Rio Tinto trades on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of around 9.3, it seems to offer a wide margin of safety following its share price fall. This could mean that investors are able to obtain a favourable risk/reward ratio from a stock that appears to offer recovery potential over the long term.BarclaysAnother FTSE 100 share that has experienced a significant decline in investor sentiment of late is Barclays (LSE: BARC). Its shares are down by over 20% since the start of the year, although its recent results highlighted that it is making progress in executing its strategy.For example, the bank has maintained cost discipline and was able to produce an underlying rise in its pre-tax profit of 9%. Certainly, risks facing the UK economy could hold back its performance in the near term, while uncertainty regarding its management team may cause investor sentiment to remain unsettled.However, the bank is forecast to post a rise in its net profit of 7% in the 2021 financial year. This suggests that its P/E ratio of 6 undervalues the business, while its dividend yield of 6.9% is almost 200 basis points higher than that of the FTSE 100 and is covered 2.4 times by net profit.As such, now could be the right time to buy a slice of Barclays for the long run. Its share price performance has disappointed in recent months, but its valuation and growth forecasts could lead to a recovery in the coming years. 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.

Puerto Ricans aren’t giving up on Christmas

Puerto Ricans aren’t giving up on Christmas

first_img Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Editor’s Note: For a list of charities still providing relief and resources to Puerto Rico, see the list at the bottom of the articleBy Evelyn Milagros Rodriguez and first published by theconversation.comSome say Puerto Rico has the longest Christmas in the world.For Puerto Ricans, who are 85 percent Catholic, Christmas starts after Thanksgiving, continues through Christmas Day, and extends beyond Three Kings Day, on Jan. 6, with the “octavitas” – an eight-day street party that concludes in the St. Sebastian Festival in Old San Juan in mid-January. Christmas trees and decorations stay up for almost two months. The new year is greeted in a noisy fashion, with street concerts and fireworks and guns fired celebratorily – albeit dangerously – into the air.At least, that’s the tradition in my country. This year everything is different. In September, hurricanes Irma and Maria both battered Puerto Rico, killing perhaps as many as a thousand people and destroying much of the island.Three months later, most Puerto Ricans still contend with some combination of unsafe water, no electricity, blocked highways, broken bridges, lack of internet and food shortages. Some 600 people are still living in shelters.Can Christmas survive this catastrophe?Survival firstI’m considering this question from my home in San Juan, the capital, where a Christmas miracle has occurred: Last week electricity was restored to parts of the neighborhood.Currently, about 65 percent of the island has electrical power, and everyone else is constantly hunting for it.More than 60 percent of Puerto Ricans still don’t have power, making it hard to decorate for Christmas. Alvin Baez/ReutersBut we’re also seeking another kind of power, I think – the strength to get through this national disaster.Rural governments are still trying to tend to thousands of people left without water, electricity and medicine. Meanwhile, Gov. Ricardo Roselló is handling Puerto Rico’s hurricane aftermath while also reckoning with the island’s bankruptcy. Everyone has been working so hard for so long.There are signs of desperation. Suicides and post-traumatic stress are a reality here now. It will be a long time before anything here starts to look normal again, and we know some things may never be the same.At my job, as a special collections librarian at the University of Puerto Rico’s Humacao campus, our team is working from a tent outside while the library gets a deep clean. The building that houses the library leaked during Maria, so it soon became mold-infested. We lost our reference collection completely, along with all the furniture and computer equipment.For a while there, I thought maybe Christmas might be one more thing lost to Maria.The University of Puerto Rico in Humacao has reopened for classes since Hurricane Maria, though some buildings remain closed. Milagros Rodriguez, Author providedAfter the celebrationsPuerto Ricans, as it happens, are good at adversity. It’s a legacy of our colonial history.Either way, the country’s resilience is on full display this Christmas season. Despite the blackouts that still affect even places where power’s been restored and the cold showers, we will have our holiday.It may not be the longest Christmas in the world this year. And there may not be a lot of decorated trees, wreaths or parties. But in homes across the country people are roasting suckling pig right now, preparing blood sausages and stewing rice and peas.We may have to cook over a charcoal fire, but to be sure: There will be bananas for our pasteles, meat-filled pastries served wrapped in a leaf.Families hum along to holiday favorites – “Navidad,” a salsa tune by José Nogueras, and “Los reyes no llegaron,” a Christmas bolero by Victoria Sanabria – accompanied by the roar of generators.José Nogueras’s ‘Navidad’ is a classic Puerto Rican holiday song.Since my house has electricity, we’re stringing the Christmas lights and planning to party. Even in homes without power, that’s sometimes the case. As I heard one caller say on the radio, “We’ll turn on the Christmas lights even if it means plugging them into a generator.”At work, the library team hung a Three Wise Men-themed decoration on our temporary library tent.Christmas is on. M. Rodriguez, Author providedElsewhere, sadness is more tangible. By November, 100,000 Puerto Ricans had fled Hurricane Maria’s aftermath, a number that grows daily. Many families will be missing their loved ones this Christmas.Tragedy unites us all right now. In some places – like Santa Isabel, on Puerto Rico’s southern coast, and Moca, a town near Aguadilla – locals have decked out the main square, transforming storm debris into makeshift Christmas trees and wooden nativity scenes, all strung up with lights.Such scenes reflect the national sentiment that not destruction, or terrible crisis management, or bankruptcy can take Christmas from Puerto Rico. Celebrating the holidays this year means feeling, if only for a moment, normal. It’s a sign of survival.

Block on access to foreign websites to be lifted in Shanghai free trade zone

first_img Follow the news on China March 12, 2021 Find out more ChinaAsia – Pacific News ChinaAsia – Pacific April 27, 2021 Find out more RSF_en China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figures News Receive email alerts Newscenter_img Organisation June 2, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders takes note of a report in today’s South China Morning Post revealing that leading foreign social networks and news websites will be accessible in the Shanghai free trade zone that is to be inaugurated at the end of the month.Speaking on condition of anonymity, a government source told the newspaper that, as an experiment, the authorities were on the point of allowing access to social networks such as Facebook and Twitter and the New York Times website in the Shanghai business district of Pudong, where the free trade zone will be located.“By taking this decision, the Chinese government is acknowledging that Internet censorship is bad for business,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We regret that this lifting of censorship will apply to just a limited part of the country and that the reasons behind it are purely economic. Reporters Without Borders added: “Targeted mainly at foreigners, this measure will probably not benefit the Chinese population. It should be extended to all Chinese Internet users, who are now the victims of discrimination in access to information.”As in the Hong Kong free trade zone, the Chinese authorities want the Shanghai free trade zone to attract foreign telecommunications companies that will offer their Internet connection services to companies based in the zone. The restrictions on Internet access are being lifted with the chief aim of attracting additional foreign investment, and the measure will apply only to an area of some 30 square kilometres centred on Pudong.This surprising U-turn by the government on the subject of social networks comes just two days after an outcry by Internet users forced the authorities to release Yang Hui, a 16-year-old school student and online activist who was arrested for what he had posted online.Police in Zhangjiachuan arrested Yang on charges of provocation and disruption after his comments about possible police involvement in a Karaoke bar owner’s death were retweeted more than 500 times on the Chinese microblog service Tencent.As a result of a “Save the Child” campaign launched by activists You Feizhu and Wang Shihua, more than 40 lawyers across the country supported calls for Yang’s release. Although facing up to three years in prison under a new law, he was finally released on 22 September after just seven days of “administrative” detention.China is ranked 173rd out of 179 countries in the 2013 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index and is on the Reporters Without Borders list of “Enemies of the Internet.” China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison Help by sharing this information September 24, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Block on access to foreign websites to be lifted in Shanghai free trade zone Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes to go further Newslast_img read more

The two had been convicted of “illegal entry into the country” and alleged “support for terrorism”.“Let us not forget that the journalists were imprisoned for 14 months without genuine cause,” Christophe Deloire, director general of Reporters Without Borders, said in a statement. “They simply doing their duty of reporting the news.”The press freedom organization had for weeks been closely following direct negotiations between the Swedish government and Prime Minister Meles Zenawi. His sudden death on 21 August had aroused grave concern for Swedish officials and the journalists’ families that the talks would slow down.On assignment for the Kontinent news service, Schibbye and Personn had been arrested on 1 July 2011 along with members of the Ogaden National Liberation Front. The journalists had illegally entered the Ogaden region of southeast Ethiopia to report on the human rights situation there. Before they were arrested, they had been wounded during a battle between the rebel group and Ethiopian forces, in which 15 liberation front members were killed.Deloire noted that journalists’ safety remains a grave concern, with three Ethiopian and two Eritrean journalists still in custody. “While we express our relief for our Swedish colleagues, we maintain our demand to free all imprisoned journalists in Ethiopia,” he said.Photo : The two swedish journalists, from Kontinent news service, Martin Schibbye and Johan Persson September 10, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Reporters Without Borders hails Swedish journalists’ release EthiopiaAfrica Organisation February 10, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Dr. Vikram Patel is the Pershing Square Professor of Global Health in the Department of Global Health and Social Medicine at Harvard Medical School. He is the recipient of many recognitions and was prompt in accepting the invitation to speak at the Webinar. The webinar was moderated by Mr. Prashanto Sen, Sr. Adv., Mr. Ranvir Singh, Advocate and Mr. Pallav Mongia, Advocate on Record.The webinar started with the introduction by Mr. Prashanto Sen, Sr. Adv. He briefly explained the need for such discussions in today’s difficult times. He said that there is complete uncertainty in everything around us. Our profession is inherently competitive. Structures in the legal system generate anxiety. Financial insecurites, inequality of opportunity, nepotism etc add to the same. Insecurities generated by our profession are exacerbated by the prevailing times. The recent suicides by lawyers is a grave warning signal which makes it imperative to determine how to respond. Then he invited Dr. Bikram to share his knowledge and guide us on how to deal with the present situation.Dr. Bikram began by explaining the science behind mental health and by underlining its importance. He explained that what we are and our identity is defined by our mental health. It is central to our capabilities.At the root of anxiety is uncertainty. While for a caveman, it helped him prepare against the prevailing dangers; today it poses an immense health risk. After discussing the impact of this pandemic on our thoughts, he moved on to suggest solutions.He advised that our remedies lie all around us. Lawyers as a community must promote mental health. Ability to talk about mental health is a part of the solution. Tele-counselling services must be taken resort which allow psychological interventions and counselling sessions which do not require any medicines. He also gave an example of NGO Sangath which is headquartered in Goa. This also led to a pointed question by Mr. Ranvir Singh, Advocate if there can be a tie up with the Bar Association to which he responded that the same can be duly explored.Dr. Patel went on to to give practical advice on how to know when one needs help. He mentioned that typical signs and symptoms include feeling irritable, constantly fearful about future, unable to enjoy the things which you usually do, unable to concentrate, feeling disinterested, unable to rest peacefully, unable to sleep etc. One solution is always to talk to someone. The slogan should be “Its ok to talk”. And if someone talks, listen. Listening and caring for others is always helpful to both the speaker and the listener. Healthy relationships are the single most important way to deal with mental health issues. One must find ways to insulate yourself from uncertainty and one simple way to deal with it to engage in habits. Meditation definitely helps. Dr. Patel then went on take questions which was entirely moderated by Mr. Ranvir Singh, Advocate. The session ended with a vote of thanks by Mr. Pallav Mongia who thanked Dr Patel for giving practical solutions and insights in dealing with these problems at home and what changes are required at institutional and peer level to help lawyers deal with such problems.

The Who Hit 50 And Keep On Going In Los Angeles

The Who Hit 50 And Keep On Going In Los Angeles

first_imgThe world keeps spinning, and so do The Who.After an eight-month delay on account of singer Roger Daltrey’s bout with meningitis, the British legends were back in action at Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA on Wednesday night, May 25th. They were as loud as ever and, more importantly, bigger and brighter. Their show was as much a celebration of their 50 years as a band as it was a sign of the times, a performance transformed into a technological spectacular.A light rig with more bulbs than the eye of a house fly? Check.A high-definition screen behind the stage? Check.Trippy visuals to complement the music and captivate the audience? Check and check.Between all those elements and the sheer energy of the band itself, you’d hardly have known The Who were celebrating their golden anniversary, save for the digits plastered across the concert shirts—and the gray hairs on the heads and faces of those who wore them.Daltrey still found moments to soar, be it with his voice on “Won’t Get Fooled Again” or his harmonica on “Baba O’Riley.”Pete Townshend, who recently turned 71, sang and played like a man half his age. He melted more than a few faces with a wailing solo during “Join Together,” growled gruffly during “Eminence Front” and guided the audience deftly through his instrumental opus, “The Rock.”The remaining original pair seemed to funnel fresh energy from its more youthful (but plenty decorated) support: Simon Townshend, Pete’s brother, on guitar and backing vocals; Zak Starkey, Ringo Starr’s son, on drums; Pino Palladino, plucked from the John Mayer Trio, on bass; Loren Gold, John Corey and Frank Simes, veterans of the classic-rock world all. Together, they brought the band’s timeless catalogue to life in a way that was as fitting a tribute to Keith Moon and John Entwistle as any emotional montage. Indeed, the songs those two rocked into existence, along with Townshend and Daltrey, remain the bedrock of the band, the siren that still beckons fans into their seats and onto their feet wherever the Who may roam.But so, too, has the band long staked its reputation to progress, to the modernity of music. Townshend, in particular, was one of the great technological tinkerers of his day. Like his contemporaries in the Beatles and Pink Floyd, he toyed with the creation of new and different sounds, and wasn’t tethered to any traditional instruments or accompanying orthodoxies in doing so. He pushed the envelope across physical faculties, envisioning audiovisual experiences that were not only way ahead of their time, but too difficult to pull off well (Tommy) or at all (Quadrophenia) in their own days.Townshend still appeared torn about his efforts with those rock operas. In introducing the Quadrophenia portion of the set, he sounded at once proud of the album-based tour he and the band put together several years ago and wistful, as if he wasn’t quite satisfied. He even hinted that a similar tour for Tommy could be in the works.After all these years, Townshend remains a tinkerer, an artist, a perfection. He picks and pokes and prods at his own work, scanning for improvements and never quite satisfied with the ones he finds. Call him “The Seeker,” because he’s searching low and high.If “The Who Hit 50!”—in all of its sonic and visual splendor—is any indication, let’s hope he doesn’t get what he’s after ‘til the day he and the band die.last_img read more
