Kevin Godbold | Wednesday, 29th April, 2020 | More on: NXT Image: Next: Fair use center_img Enter Your Email Address “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” It’s a good idea to buy shares in FTSE 100 and other companies and act as if you are a part-owner of that business. If you are in shares for the long haul, you can share in the firm’s future profits and growth.  And an approach like that can lead to great returns from the stock market over time.A business perspective can pay handsomelyYou only need look at the results generated by some of the world’s wealthiest business owners and investors to see the wisdom in buying and holding part ownership in great businesses. I’m thinking of names such as Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Warren Buffett and Richard Branson. Those guys have held on to their best stocks and businesses for decades – and it hasn’t done their bank accounts any harm at all!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…When it comes to great companies with strong underlying businesses, I think we have a decent example in the FTSE 100’s Next (LSE: NXT), the multinational clothing, footwear and home products retailer. The firm issued an update today about how it’s coping during the coronavirus crisis. And the comprehensive explanations about actions, strategies and tactics are wonderful.I reckon Next is inviting us to be participating part-business-owners. When I read the update, it feels like being present in the boardroom as the top directors discuss progress. And the firm’s pro-investor stance helps me trust it.Of course, I already knew that Next owns a popular brand and has an impressive record of trading and finances. The firm’s two-pronged approach has worked well. It balances conventional store sales with online revenue. And the company has been good at sharing its prosperity with shareholders via dividends and share buy-backs.Dire figures, but set to recoverMeanwhile, today’s trading figures are dire, as we might expect. The directors said in the report the retail sector has slowed “faster and more steeply” than they expected even as recently as March.  Indeed, full-price product sales from 26 January to 25 April were down 41% overall, with Retail plunging 52% and Online crashing down by 32%. However, the share price has barely moved on the news, suggesting the stock market has already adjusted the price for poor short-term trading.And, as so often happens, it looks like the market over-reacted to start with. When the stock market crash happened, Next dropped as low as about 3,390p per share. Now, the price stands near 4,709p, so there’s been a significant bounce-back.Now it’s time for me to invest in Next for the long haul. The visibility in today’s update gives me confidence that the Next management team is doing everything it can to rebuild the business as we move from lockdown to a world characterised by ongoing social-distancing where we live daily with the reality of coronavirus.In summary, Next isn’t expecting a return to the ‘normal’ we had BC (Before Coronavirus). Business will be difficult and challenging. Revenues and profits will be lower. But I’m tempted to hop aboard the recovery story now as a well-briefed and engaged part-owner of the business. I’d buy some of the shares right now.   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!

Should I buy Tesla shares for my ISA today?

Image source: Tesla Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares See all posts by Nadia Yaqub “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 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. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) shares are on fire right now. The stock has soared over 600% in 2020 and UK investors can’t get enough. It’s the eighth most purchased shares on the Hargreaves Lansdown investment platform. Pardon the pun, but Tesla’s share price performance has been electric.Bearing this in mind, is this stock rally likely to continue? Let’s take a closer look at the investment case.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…Strong resultsRevenue from Tesla’s automotive division has been growing quarter-on-quarter, which has helped the share price. Most of the company’s sales come from its electric vehicles, but Tesla also has a growing energy generation and storage segment.Things look promising for the energy business as demand for its solar products remains strong. Tesla shares have rallied as investors are banking on the hope that it can grow this alternative division and diversify its revenue.Inclusion in S&P 500Recently, Tesla shares have soared on the news of it entering the S&P 500. The inclusion of the company means that all the passive funds that track the index will need to buy the shares in substantial quantities. I believe this bulk buying means that Tesla shares are likely to continue to rise in the short term.The heavy buying from the index-tracking funds is expected to be temporary. I believe traders are using this opportunity to buy and sell Tesla shares around the inclusion date on 21 December. I’m a long-term investor and so will focus on the company’s performance, rather than its index inclusion.Market reactionThe surge in Tesla shares has been met with mixed views. Goldman Sachs has just upgraded the stock from a hold to a buy with a price target of $780. Tesla shares are currently trading at $643, which means that investors could get a further 20% gain.According to marketscreener.com, 11 out of 37 analysts rate Tesla as a hold, with 9 rating it as a buy. From this I deduce that the consensus view is to wait and see as investors are unsure whether to dip their toe in.Not everyone is positive. Hedge fund manager, Michael Burry is bearish on Tesla shares. He featured in the 2015 Hollywood hit The Big Short after predicting the 2008/09 housing market crash. Burry is pessimistic on Tesla’s outlook and has even advised the founder, Elon Musk to take advantage of the sky high stock price to raise more cash.Be cautiousElon Musk himself has warned Tesla’s employees that the share price could get “crushed like a soufflé under a sledgehammer”.He highlighted in a recent leaked internal email that the company’s actual profitability is very low. Investors are placing emphasis on future profits, which if not met will result in the price tanking.Stock priceThere’s no denying that Tesla shares have performed well in 2020 but I can’t justify buying the stock for my portfolio at current levels.Rather than the direct stock, I would prefer to buy Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust, which has an impressive track record. It’s a global portfolio of private and public companies and includes Tesla, should I want some exposure to the company.center_img Enter Your Email Address Should I buy Tesla shares for my ISA today?

South Sudan: Episcopal, Catholic bishops ‘stand committed’ to end war

first_img Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Course Director Jerusalem, Israel The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Submit an Event Listing Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Youth Minister Lorton, VA Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Featured Jobs & Calls Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab [Anglican Communion News Service] Episcopal and Catholic bishops from South Sudan have said that together they “stand committed to do all in [their] power” to realize an end to war between Sudan and South Sudan.Following a three-day meeting in Yei, South Sudan, lead by Roman Catholic Archbishop Paulino Lukudu Loro and Episcopal Church of Sudan Archbishop Daniel Deng Bul, the 14 bishops issued a “Message of Peace” which laid out their hopes and plans for an end to conflict.Referencing the famous Martin Luther King Jr. speech, the bishop’s said: “We dream of two nations which are democratic and free, where people of all religions, all ethnic groups, all cultures and all languages enjoy equal human rights based on citizenship. We dream of two nations at peace with each other, cooperating to make the best use of their God-given resources, promoting free interaction between their citizens, living side by side in solidarity and mutual respect, celebrating their shared history and forgiving any wrongs they may have done to each other.“We dream of people no longer traumatized, of children who can go to school, of mothers who can attend clinics, of an end to poverty and malnutrition, and of Christians and Muslims who can attend church or mosque freely without fear. Enough is enough. There should be no more war between Sudan and South Sudan!“Blessed are the peacemakers; they shall be recognized as children of God (Matthew 5:9). We take this very seriously, and we stand committed to do all in our power to make our dream a reality. We believe that the people and government of South Sudan desperately want peace. We believe the same is true of the people and their liberation movements in the Nuba Mountains and Blue Nile. We do not believe, however, that a lasting peace will come unless all parties act in good faith. Trust must be built, and this involves honesty, however painful that may be. We invite the International Community to walk with us on the painful journey of exploring the truth in competing claims and counter-claims, allegations and counter-allegations. We invite them to understand the peaceful aspirations of the ordinary people, and to reflect that in their statements and actions.”The bishops’ document was, however, more than just aspirational — it included calls to both the international community and the nations of South Sudan and Sudan, specifically ones requesting the implementation of U.N. resolution 20461 and for protection for the marginalized.The bishops — who welcomed to the meeting Archbishop of York John Sentamu and the Special representative of the U.N. secretary general, Hilde Johnson — also committed themselves to renewed ecumenical efforts to build peace. “During the civil war the strength of the churches’ role on the ground and in international advocacy lay in their unity and ecumenical spirit,” said the statement, “…since peace came in 2005 the ecumenical project has dwindled.“The Catholic and Episcopal churches have much in common in their history, theology and praxis, both are founder members of the Sudan Council of Churches (SCC) and both are international institutions with a great deal of influence in the world for the well-being of all. Working together we believe we have much to offer to SCC as it restructures to meet the new reality of two nations, and as it faces new challenges due to the current military and political tensions.”Bishops from the Republic of Sudan were unable to attend the meeting due to the current political situation.The full text of the letter, along with its signatories, is available here.

Attacks on any community are deplorable and any state has the responsibility to protect its citizens. The appalling attacks in August on the Christian community in Egypt highlight the need for all citizens to be duly protected.”The report argues that Egyptian authorities failed to prevent mob attacks on Christian churches, schools and charity buildings in August that left at least four people dead and buildings burnt to the ground.The archbishop, who met with Coptic and Anglican leaders in Cairo in June, added: “Despite the pressure they are under, by the grace of God, Christians in Egypt continue to do all they can to work for the good of the whole of the society of which they are an essential part.”Last Sunday, the archbishop joined an Anglican-Coptic service of prayer for people caught up in unrest in Egypt, Syria and the wider Middle East.Speaking before the event, he said: “I am delighted that Anglican and Orthodox Christians will worship together and remember in prayer the very difficult, indeed life-threatening circumstances in which some of the churches are living.” An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Smithfield, NC Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Rector Washington, DC Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Rector Bath, NC Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET last_img read more

IJM promotes awareness of labor trafficking

first_imgLinkedin Recruitment brings college dance opportunities to Arlington Heights High School Twitter ReddIt Elizabeth Hinzhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/elizabeth-hinz/ TAGSphotos Facebook Elizabeth Hinzhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/elizabeth-hinz/ Cost of textbooks on the rise Study ranks TCU third for liquor-law violations per 10,000 students Elizabeth Hinz ReddIt Facebook Twitter World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Elizabeth Hinzhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/elizabeth-hinz/ Linkedin Elizabeth Hinzhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/elizabeth-hinz/ printWhile many people automatically associate human trafficking with the sex trade, sexual exploitation only accounts for roughly one-fourth of the crimes involved in modern-day slavery.An estimated 21 million people are thought to be trapped in labor trafficking, according to the International Labour Organization. At 68 percent, the majority of these individuals are forced into labor such as agriculture, construction and manufacturing. The chocolate industry, or rather the cocoa bean, is also largely dependent on forced labor.The International Justice Mission, TCU’s anti-trafficking organization, promoted awareness on the issue on Wednesday with a screening of the documentary “The Dark Side of Chocolate.” The documentary investigated child trafficking and forced child labor at cocoa plantations in Africa.The event drew about 50 to 60 people in Sid Richardson. Fair trade chocolate, which strictly prohibits the use of slave or child labor in production, was given out at the end of the documentary. President of IJM and senior entrepreneur management major Madelyn Carter started the anti-trafficking organization last fall. Photo by Elizabeth HinzIJM President Madelyn Carter said she wants to teach people about what labor trafficking looks like and how to combat against it.“This isn’t like a ‘don’t eat chocolate thing,’” said Carter, a senior majoring in entrepreneurial management. “It’s more having a critical concern for where the things you buy come from and who’s making your goods and where you’re putting your money towards.”First-year child development major Darlene Ninziza said she is glad IJM is paying attention to the issue.“I heard about child labor and trafficking before and that it was connected to Africa, and I am from Rwanda which is central Africa,” said Ninziza. “I didn’t expect there to be such a thing as this club and that they are concerned for something that’s happening so far away.”Some students said the documentary made them more aware about child labor trafficking.“I really did not know much about human trafficking to begin with and coming here really did open my eyes about the child labor industry,” said first-year student Oscar Hernandez. “We definitely need to pay attention to where we put out money.”First-year pre-business major Andrea Carrasquilla said the documentary broadened her views on labor trafficking.“I knew that there was human trafficking, but I didn’t know it could be with something as simple as chocolate,” said Carrasquilla. “There’s ways to make a difference. Even just educating is a good start.”Carter said IJM’s goals include continuing to raise awareness about labor and sex trafficking as well as providing students options to take action.“It’s just been cool to see TCU embraces us,” said Carter. “We’re a young club and we have a lot of support on campus which just shows the hearts of the TCU students are so caring and compassionate for this issue.For more information visit TCU IJM’s Facebook page. + posts Welcome TCU Class of 2025 Previous articleClown hysteria reaches TCUNext articleConsidering dressing as a clown?

US — #WeeklyAddress: October 22 – October 28: Explosive device sent to CNN’s New York office

first_img Receive email alerts WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists June 7, 2021 Find out more October 29, 2018 US — #WeeklyAddress: October 22 – October 28: Explosive device sent to CNN’s New York office Below are the most notable incidents regarding threats to press freedom in the US during the week of October 22 – October 28: Reporters Without Borders (RSF) recently published an analysis on the difficulties foreign journalists face attempting to obtain visas to travel to the United States, and called on the US government to provide transparency in the visa application and appeals processes. These journalists, who have all reported in global conflict zones or traveled to certain “countries of particular concern,” have been outright denied visas on the grounds of “terrorist activities” or remain waiting indefinitely as their applications process. These obstacles and the lack of responsiveness that foreign journalists face throughout the process are of great concern to RSF and other press freedom advocates. Read more here. Man shot by security guard after breaking into Fox 5 DC building News Follow the news on United States News The United States ranks 45th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index after falling 2 places in the last year. Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says Four alleged members of the white supremacist Rise Above Movement (RAM) have been charged with inciting violence against journalists, counter-protesters, and a police officer in California between March and June of 2017. At a Make America Great rally in Huntington Beach, video evidence shows RAM members Tyler Laube punching a journalist three times in the face and Robert Rundo punching one protester and assaulting a second. Supporters of the group, as well as the neo-Nazi website The Daily Stormer, openly praised these assaults online. The criminal complaint issued against Laube, Rundo, and two other members—Robert Boman and Aaron Eason—also cite four other instances in which these men violated federal conspiracy and riots statutes. According to the U.S. Press Freedom Tracker, 45 journalists faced physical attacks in 2017. White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders criticized CNN chief Jeff Zucker on Twitter for denouncing the Trump administration’s response to the bomb scare at CNN’s New York office. In her response, Sanders referenced the president’s message of unity from a Wisconsin rally, which took place the same day CNN received the explosive device, before accusing Zucker of choosing “to attack and divide” instead.  Sanders did not mention the president’s later remarks at the rally, in which he blamed the news media for the current climate of political violence and for failing “to set a civil tone.” Just last week, President Trump praised Montana Congressman Greg Gianforte for body-slamming Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs in May 2017. Explosive device sent to CNN’s New York office CNN’s New York office received a suspicious package containing a pipe bomb on October 24 that was addressed to former CIA Director John Brennan. Employees were quickly evacuated from the Time Warner Center where the news outlet’s offices are located. The man responsible for sending the bombs, now identified as Cesar Sayoc, also sent 12 other packages to prominent liberal figures who have openly criticized President Trump. Sayoc, a zealous Trump supporter, has a record of attacking political figures and praising the president and conservative causes on social media. A recently released video even shows Sayoc chanting “CNN sucks” at a Trump rally in 2017. President Trump held a rally in Wisconsin the same day CNN received the device, where he criticized “acts or threats of political violence” against the press before blaming the news media for failing to “to set a civil tone and to stop the endless hostility and constant negative and oftentimes false attacks and stories.” In a tweet two days later, he disparaged “lowly rated CNN, and others” for criticizing the president “at will.” Under the Trump administration, journalists have been especially vulnerable to hostile criticism, including directly from the president, and violence. The court hearing concerning Mexican journalist Emilio Gutierrez-Soto’s request for asylum in the United States, originally scheduled for October 22, has been delayed due to the loss of court files. His asylum request was originally denied in July 2017 and then re-opened after 19 journalism organizations, including RSF, joined an appeal to presiding judge Robert Hough’s deportation order in support of the internationally respected journalist and his son. According to Gutierrez’s attorney Eduardo Beckett, the appeals court lost some of the files he had submitted for Monday’s hearing, which Judge Hough then delayed. He is expected to issue a ruling in January 2019. Gutierrez originally fled Mexico with his son Oscar in 2008 after being placed on a military kill list and targeted for exposing corruption and abuse by the Mexican military.

Follow the news on China China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison ChinaAsia – Pacific June 2, 2021 Find out more News Three Reporters Without Borders representatives, including secretary-general Robert Ménard, today unfurled a banner showing the Olympic rings transformed into handcuffs at the official Olympic torch-lighting ceremony in Olympia, in Greece. Security forces arrested the three human rights activists, who are now being held at a police station in Pyrgos, around 80 kilometres from Olympia.“The Olympic flame may be sacred but human rights are even more so,” the press freedom organisation said. “We could not let the Chinese government take the Olympic flame, a symbol of peace, without denouncing the dramatic human rights situation in China with less than five months to go to the start of the Olympic Games.”Reporters Without Borders added: “The treatment reserved in China for those who express themselves freely, the censorship imposed on the press and the news blackout in Tibet demand this sort of protest. All possible means must now be used to condemn the serious violations of basic freedoms in China. We will protest whenever we can.”The Reporters Without Borders’ representatives unfurled the Beijing 2008 campaign banner during the ceremony to light the torch. They were immediately seized by the security forces before being taken to a police station in Pyrgos.“What we did was not intended to embarrass the Greek authorities,” the organisation said. “We just want to remind the Chinese government and the International Olympic Committee of the promises made on respecting human rights in China”.Chinese television interrupted its coverage of the ceremony during the intervention by Reporters Without Borders’ activists, replacing it with archive footage of the Olympic site. Greek television simply broke off its broadcast for a few momentReporters Without Borders is also calling on heads of state, heads of government and members of royal families to boycott the 8 August opening ceremony of the Beijing games.The organisation will hold a news conference on the press freedom situation in China at 11 a.m. on 27 March at the Lawyers Centre in Athens.Around 100 journalists, Internet users and cyber-dissidents are currently imprisoned in China just for expressing their views peacefully. Journalists have been banned from visiting Tibet since 12 March and have been expelled from neighbouring provinces. The crackdown on protests by Tibetans is taking place out of sight.Chinese journalists continue to be subject to the dictates of the Publicity Department (the former Propaganda Department), which imposes censorship on a wide range of subjects. The government and party continue to control news and information and have authoritarian laws to punish violators.Charges of subversion, disseminating state secrets or spying are often brought against journalists and cyber-dissidents. Self-censorship is the rule in news organisations. Independent Chinese-language media based abroad are blocked, harassed or jammed, preventing the emergence of diversity in news and information.More information about the Reporters Without Borders international campaign on the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games is available in English, French, Spanish, Arabic and Chinese at the Reporters Without Borders website (www.rsf) see the images April 27, 2021 Find out more News China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figures Receive email alertslast_img read more

Press freedom groups call for reopening of investigation

first_img “We welcome opening of criminal investigation in Lithuania in response to our complaint against Lukashenko” RSF says BelarusEurope – Central Asia May 28, 2021 Find out more Organisation Reporters Without Borders and the Belarus Association of Journalists (BAJ) have called for the investigation into the disappearance of Dmitri Zavadski, a Belarus cameraman for the Russian TV station ORT, to be reopened.The official heading the enquiry, Ivan Branchel, told Zavadski’s widow, Svetlana Zavadskaya, in a 27 February letter, that the authorities had decided to stop looking for him because “he has not yet been found.” He disappeared on 7 July 2000. News News RSF_en Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown BelarusEurope – Central Asia News Follow the news on Belarus Receive email alerts to go further March 25, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Press freedom groups call for reopening of investigation The two press freedom organisations wrote to Branchel pointing out that the decision was contrary to international legal norms and also deprived the Zavadski family (his wife, mother and son) of their right to know the truth about what happened to him.They said ending of the investigation violated the UN General Assembly’s Declaration on the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance (resolution 47/133) of 18 December 1992, whose article 17 says that “acts constituting enforced disappearance shall be considered a continuing offence as long as the perpetrators continue to conceal the fate and the whereabouts of persons who have disappeared and these facts remain unclarified.”Regional bodies such as the European and Inter-American courts of human rights have several times ruled that because enforced disappearance is by nature “continuous,” states are obliged to keep on searching until the person is found.Reporters Without Borders and the BAJ consider the trial that ended on 16 July last year with a life sentence for Valeri Ignatovich, former head of the interior ministry’s special police force, for being responsible for Zavadski’s disappearance, did not establish the exact circumstances of Zavadski’s enforced disappearance or identify those who ordered his kidnapping.An ad hoc sub-committee of the Council of Europe’s Parliamentary Assembly set up to investigate the disappearance of opposition figures in Belarus reported on 27 November last that the Belarus authorities had still not accounted satisfactorily for the journalist’s disappearance.Zavadski was formerly the personal cameraman of President Alexander Lukashenko until 1996, when he resigned from the government-controlled TV station without the agreement of the authorities and joined the Russian station ORT. He was jailed for two months with an ORT colleague in 1997 after they reported on gaps in Belarus security along the country’s border with Lithuania.In 2000, Zavadski revealed that Ignatovich, who had left the interior ministry police, was working with independence fighters in Chechnya. The Belarus authorities say he killed Zavadski for reporting this.
