FREE REPORT: Why this £5 stock could be set to surge Here are a couple of top UK shares I think are top buys this June.A UK share that’s safe as houses?I think that upcoming half-year financials from Crest Nicholson (LSE: CRST) could lead to a fresh share price spurt in the coming days. Demand for new-build homes in Britain is soaring right now thanks to a mix of low interest rates, government incentives for first-time buyers, and the intense mortgage product wars being fought out among lenders.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’s my opinion that these favourable conditions are set to persist. It’s also why I already hold FTSE 100 builders Barratt Developments and Taylor Wimpey in my Stocks and Shares ISA. My belief that Crest Nicholson will release a terrific set of trading numbers on Thursday, 24 June has been reinforced by news coming out of Vistry Group. Earlier in May, the company — just like its FTSE 250 industry rival Crest Nicholson did back in March — lifted its full-year forecasts on the back of a “very positive” start to 2021.City analysts think annual earnings at Crest Nicholson will soar 86% in 2021. They’re predicting another 32% bottom-line rise next year as well. As a result, the UK housebuilding share trades on a forward price-to-earnings growth (PEG) ratio of 0.2. A reading below 1 suggests that a stock could be undervalued. I think this sort of valuation is hard to ignore, even if Crest Nicholson could suffer from huge unexpected costs and construction delays caused by a growing shortage of building materials.Electric avenueI also think AO World’s (LSE: AO) share price could soar when it unveils full-year financials on Thursday, July 1. The UK retail share certainly impressed investors in mid-April when it said revenues had leapt 62% during the 12 months to March.I’m backing AO World to release more sunny results for a couple of reasons. I reckon its online-only model — allied with its huge spending to improve its infrastructure over the past year — will have kept sales on a strong upward slant during the ongoing e-commerce boom. I’m also encouraged by the steady stream of strong retail sales data in recent months.Latest numbers from the Office for National Statistics showed the value and volume of sales in the UK surged 9.2% in April. This was double what City analysts had been expecting. It’s possible that the vast amount of money Britons saved during lockdowns will keep tills rattling across the retail sector too.Brokers predict that AO World’s annual earnings will soar 41% and 23% in the fiscal years to March 2022 and 2023 respectively. Consequently the electricals giant trades on a forward PEG of just 0.8. That being said, the UK economy isn’t out of the woods as the Covid-19 crisis rolls on and Brexit turbulence manifests itself. It’s possible that these bright growth forecasts could be blown off course. And AO World’s share price could fall as a result. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Photo: Reuters[Episcopal News Service] The Episcopal Peace Fellowship, in collaboration with Bishops United Against Gun Violence and more than a dozen other groups, is planning a series of anti-gun violence events this month to remember the victims of the Columbine school shooting 20 years ago and to renew advocates’ commitment to preventing future massacres.The “Remember and Renew Weekend,” described as an anti-violence pilgrimage to Columbine, will be held April 26 to 28 in and around Littleton, Colorado, where on April 20, 1999, two students opened fire at Columbine High School killing 12 fellow students and one teacher before the pair shot and killed themselves. The violence at Columbine shocked the nation, with its tragic distinction as the United States’ deadliest school shooting, but that attack has since been eclipsed by even deadlier horrors at schools, from Newtown, Connecticut, to Parkland, Florida.Bishop Mark Beckwith, the retired diocesan bishop in Newark, New Jersey, remembers being a parish priest in Worcester, Massachusetts, and in the middle of a vestry meeting when the news about Columbine broke.“It sank everybody’s stomach down to the floor, and we stopped the meeting and we prayed. It’s important to do that,” Beckwith told Episcopal News Service. “What we’re learning in Bishops United Against Gun Violence is thoughts and prayers are essential, but if we stop there, we’re involuntarily allowing this epidemic to continue.”Beckwith and Bishop Dan Edwards, the retired Nevada bishop, will be in Colorado this month to attend the Remember and Renew Weekend as part of their involvement with Bishops United Against Gun Violence, a network of 80 bishops that formed in the wake of the 2014 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown that killed 26 students and educators.Advocates for gun safety reforms face an uphill battle despite the continued frequency of mass shootings, but Beckwith and others involved with the Columbine pilgrimage expressed cautious optimism for the future. “It seems that the landscape is changing with respect to gun violence prevention,” Beckwith said.That new landscape has a lot to do with the advocacy of young people, particularly after the February 2018 shooting in Parkland at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where 14 students and three teachers were killed. Survivors of the Parkland shooting responded by fueling a grassroots movement, March for Our Lives, that supporters say has the potential to shake up the political status quo.“They refused to simply accept our thoughts and prayers and demanded ‘never again,’” said Bob Lotz, an Episcopalian from Lexington, Michigan, who leads the Episcopal Peace Fellowship’s gun violence prevention action group. Lotz will moderate a discussion April 26 after a viewing of the Michael Moore documentary “Bowling for Columbine” at Iliff School of Theology in Denver.Also that day at the seminary, Colorado Bishop-elect Kym Lucas will participate in a panel discussion on the culture of violence in the United States from an African American perspective. Lucas told ENS in an emailed statement that violence, such as the horrors of Columbine in 1999, is enabled by a “culture of contempt and resentment.”The Rev. Kym Lucas“The Christian faith is a faith that affirms life and love,” Lucas said. “Those who follow Jesus must speak and live those values. … We have chosen to let love, not contempt, define us. We know violence is not the answer and we will be that witness now and in the future.”The weekend series was scheduled a week after the Columbine anniversary partly to avoid overlapping with Holy Week observances – April 20 falls on Holy Saturday this year.The community of Littleton has scheduled its own events to remember the victims of the massacre 20 years ago. Those events include a memorial service at a Littleton church on April 18, a community vigil at the Columbine Memorial on April 19 and a remembrance service in a Littleton park on April 20.The subsequent Remember and Renew Weekend to be convened by the Episcopal Peace Fellowship is part of the organization’s 80th anniversary Year of Action, which started last year with a pilgrimage to the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota. Standing Rock’s opposition to an oil pipeline project, seen as a threat to the reservation’s drinking water, generated support from across The Episcopal Church.By remembering the victims of Columbine as part of Episcopal Peace Fellowship’s Year of Action, organizers are emphasizing ways that participants and Episcopalians back home can get involved in the fight against gun violence. “We want to empower the people who come to the pilgrimage to do something about it,” Episcopal Peace Fellowship Executive Director Melanie Atha told ENS.Events on April 27 have been planned with that goal in mind. St. John’s Cathedral in Denver will host a morning session on advocacy called “Finding Your Voice.” Then St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church in Centennial will host a networking lunch followed by educational and policy workshops. The day will conclude with a vigil at the Columbine Memorial followed by a dinner and reflection at Columbine Unitarian Universalist Church.The events on April 28 will include a worship service at St. Timothy’s in the morning and an interfaith service in the evening at St. Andrew United Methodist Church in Highlands Ranch.Faith groups have been active in collaborating on this weekend of events, but the list of supporters also includes a range of Colorado nonprofits and advocacy groups that aren’t tied to faith traditions, such as Colorado Ceasefire and Colorado Healing Fund.“We’re looking forward to ongoing collaboration between the organizations into the next year,” said the Rev. Bob Davidson, national chair of Episcopal Peace Fellowship and an associate rector at St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church in Estes Park, Colorado. “I hope that there’s a legacy of commitment to not have an incident like Columbine happen in our community again.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply A century-old event calls for gender parityInternational Women’s Day (IWD) has been observed since in the early 1900’s – a time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world that saw booming population growth and the rise of radical ideologies. International Women’s Day is a collective day of global celebration and a call for gender parity. No one government, NGO, charity, corporation, academic institution, women’s network or media hub is solely responsible for International Women’s Day. Many organizations declare an annual IWD theme that supports their specific agenda or cause, and some of these are adopted more widely with relevance than others.“The story of women’s struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights,” says world-renowned feminist, journalist and social and political activist Gloria Steinem. Thus International Women’s Day is all about unity, celebration, reflection, advocacy, and action – whatever that looks like globally at a local level. But one thing is for sure, International Women’s Day has been occurring for well over a century – and continue’s to grow from strength to strength.Learn about the values that underpin and guide IWD’s ethos.The world has witnessed a significant change and attitudinal shift in both women’s and society’s thoughts about women’s equality and emancipation. Many from a younger generation may feel that ‘all the battles have been won for women’ while many feminists from the 1970’s know only too well the longevity and ingrained complexity of patriarchy. With more women in the boardroom, greater equality in legislative rights, and an increased critical mass of women’s visibility as impressive role models in every aspect of life, one could think that women have gained true equality. The unfortunate fact is that women are still not paid equally to that of their male counterparts, women still are not present in equal numbers in business or politics, and globally women’s education, health and the violence against them is worse than that of men. However, great improvements have been made. We do have female astronauts and prime ministers, school girls are welcomed into university, women can work and have a family, women have real choices. And so each year the world inspires women and celebrates their achievements. IWD is an official holiday in many countries including Afghanistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, China (for women only), Cuba, Georgia, Guinea-Bissau, Eritrea, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Madagascar (for women only), Moldova, Mongolia, Montenegro, Nepal (for women only), Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uganda, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Vietnam and Zambia. The tradition sees men honouring their mothers, wives, girlfriends, colleagues, etc with flowers and small gifts. In some countries IWD has the equivalent status of Mother’s Day where children give small presents to their mothers and grandmothers.A global web of rich and diverse local activity connects women from all around the world ranging from political rallies, business conferences, government activities and networking events through to local women’s craft markets, theatric performances, fashion parades and more. Many global corporations actively support IWD by running their own events and campaigns. For example, on 8 March search engine and media giant Google often changes its Google Doodle on its global search pages to honor IWD. Year on year IWD is certainly increasing in status.So make a difference, think globally and act locally!Make everyday International Women’s Day.Do your bit to ensure that the future for girls is bright, equal, safe and rewarding.last_img read more

first_img Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Mama Mia I haven’t seen any little baby squirrels displaced from their nests in the trees due to the winds. I hope I don’t find any, or see any, as I have tried so hard in the past to nurse the little orphans back to health, and I always fail, even though I have read up on the how- to- do’s…..I go buy the pediatric electrolyte solution from CVS and get the sterilized eyedropper out, and hydrate the little squirrel which is the most important thing to do before you try feeding them an infant formula, and that is a very specific formula, but they last about a week, then die, and it is so depressing to me. You really have to keep them warm on a heated pad with a cloth, without burning or overheating them too. A blanket is not enough, and if they get cold, they will die. I am not an expert however, as I have never got one to live past a week. It is hard to duplicate what their mother can do for them to keep them alive. Reply Gov.

Mama Mia Also two football stadium lights blown down at Winter Garden’s high school. Sports newscaster lady said probably no football games this Friday at the high schools, but that it is up to them to decide. She said at least, no high school football games Friday in Seminole County. September 12, 2017 at 4:17 pm Mama Mia Gas could remain in short supplyAs the remnants of Hurricane Irma move out of Florida, work is underway to resupply the state with gasoline. Hurricane Irma caused a huge spike in gasoline demand as residents evacuated, topped-out their tanks, and/or filled gas cans to power generators. This led to outages at various gas stations throughout Florida and neighboring states, and it could take a week for supply conditions to return to normal.Suppliers face an uphill battle in the coming days, trying to keep gas stations supplied, as Florida evacuees return home in large numbers after the storm. Gas stations not located along major highways should have an easier time keeping supplies, as residents are no longer “panic pumping”, since the storm is no longer a threat. Refueling gas stations along major evacuation routes will be a top priority, as it was before the storm. Motorists are still likely to find long lines, which could lead to temporary outages, due to the surge in demand.“Florida evacuees should plan their return home very carefully,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “First, ensure you know there are no major hazards at home or along your travel route. Expect congestion on the roadways, as the first few days after the storm will be the busiest. Pay close attention to traffic reports. Ensure you have a full tank of gas before you hit the road. Do not let your fuel gauge fall below a quarter tank before you start looking for a place to refuel. Bring a gas can in case you run out of fuel. It is not safe to drive with a full gas can inside an enclosed vehicle.”Supplying the StateFlorida does not have any crude oil refineries and relies on petroleum products delivered by tanker and barge to Florida marine terminals, primarily at the ports of Jacksonville, Miami, Tampa, Port Canaveral, Port Manatee, and Port Everglades. Most of these ports have been shut since Saturday as a safety precaution. These ports can not reopen without passing inspection from the U.S. Coast Guard on all docks, facilities and ports.News From The PortsJacksonville Port: offices will remain closed through through Tuesday.Port Canaveral: crews are making preliminary assessments and report no major damage. General harbor conditions are being assessed to facilitate a return to normal operations as soon as possible.Port Everglades: damage assessment is underway. The port will reopen pending approval from the U.S. Coast Guard.Port Miami: remains closed while being surveyed by U.S. Coast Guard.Port Tampa Bay: Initial assessments at the port show minor damage and flooding. Although vessel traffic is still suspended, plans are underway to load and begin the first transfers of fuel to tanker trucks today.Even after the ports reopen, distributors may face challenges by way of power outages at gas stations, and flooded or closed streets.Florida gas prices are averaging $2.72/g today. The state average is 8 cents more than this time last week.The most expensive gas price averages in Florida are in West Palm Beach-Boca Raton ($2.80), Miami ($2.77), and Fort Lauderdale ($2.75)The least expensive gas price averages in Florida are in Pensacola ($2.65), Tallahassee ($2.70), and Fort Myers-Cape Coral ($2.70)CURRENT AND PAST PRICE AVERAGESRegular Unleaded GasolineSunday Saturday Week Ago Month Ago One Year Ago Highest Price on RecordNational $2.668 $2.670 $2.638 $2.358 $2.181 $4.114 (7/17/2008)Florida $2.718 $2.727 $2.644 $2.276 $2.188 $4.079 (7/17/2008)Click here to view current gasoline price averages September 12, 2017 at 4:10 pm Mama Mia Hmmm……I read where the City of Apopka wasn’t going to pick up the household garbage today, Tuesday, that didn’t get picked up, on our regular garbage day which was Monday, when the storm was still blowing hard, and that it would be picked up on Thursday instead.

Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 From the Orange County Public School (OCPS) NewsroomUnder an umbrella to shelter from the rain, Superintendent Barbara Jenkins greeted students at Winter Park High School last Friday on the first day of face-to-face on campus for the 2020-21 school year. Due to the pandemic, students have not been on campus since last spring and aside from wearing masks, it looked like the first day of school – students waved to friends they hadn’t seen in a while and lost students asked adults for directions to their first period.Per Dr. Jenkins’ tradition, she visited schools throughout the district to welcome students and staff back for the year. In addition to WPHS, she visited OCPS ACE, Lockhart Elementary, Liberty Middle and the three new elementary schools: Summer Lake, Sunshine, Vista Pointe.So far, nearly 70,000 students have returned to schools across the district. That is about 30 percent of all students enrolled who chose the face-to-face option given to parents last month. The other 65 percent chose [email protected] and 5 percent selected Orange County Virtual School.At each school, Dr. Jenkins was impressed with the extra attention to health and safety measures put in place with assistance from district staff, especially Safety and Emergency Management. Students and staff donned face masks and gave air hugs. Plus, floor markings indicated six feet of spacing and directional arrows managed hall traffic.“The children were so excited. It makes a huge impact. The principal and adults were excited, as well.

As well as being a world-leading research organisation, the charity is also fighting the misconceptions of dementia that persist in society. Dementia is not inevitable and research is our greatest weapon against it.”Hilary Evans, Chief Executive of Alzheimer’s Research UK, welcomed the announcement of the former PM’s new role, saying:“David Cameron joins Alzheimer’s Research UK as our President to continue a mission he instigated through the Prime Minister’s Dementia Challenge: to go further and faster in our research to combat the condition. As a world leader, Mr Cameron has done more than any other to put dementia on the global agenda, driving an ambition shared by all G7 nations to find a disease-modifying treatment by 2025… [His] support of our work will help us continue our positive growth and further bolster our research efforts, through which we will end the fear, harm and heartbreak of dementia.” Tagged with: Celebrity  165 total views,  1 views today  166 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis9 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis9 About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

He said: Advertisement Howard Lake | 25 January 2017 | News David Cameron is new President of Alzheimer’s Research UK Former Prime Minister David Cameron has taken on the role of President of Alzheimer’s Research UK, the UK’s dementia research charity. This is the highest level of ambassador to the charity.As Prime Minister, Mr Cameron supported efforts to improve care, research and public understanding of the disease and its effects. He launched the Prime Minister’s Dementia Challenge in 2012, describing dementia at the time as “one of the biggest challenges we face today – and it is one that we as a society simply cannot afford to ignore any longer.”In 2013, he used the UK’s presidency of the G8 to highlight the condition and encourage an international initiative to find a disease modifying treatment by 2025. A year later at a G7  legacy event in London he launched Alzheimer’s Research UK’s five-year £100m Defeat Dementia fundraising campaign.He succeeds Lady Onslow who, as President, has supported Alzheimer’s Research UK for many years.New President – dementia “not inevitable”His first act as President was to visit the charity’s offices in Cambridge, and tour one of Alzheimer’s Research UK’s three Drug Discovery Institutes. Here he heard from scientists who are working to fast-track promising research breakthroughs into new treatments for people with dementia.Marking its 25th anniversary this year, Alzheimer’s Research UK has a current £33m portfolio of projects underway at leading universities in the UK and around the world.  Its programmes include a world-first network of dementia Drug Discovery Institutes, innovative international partnerships between academia and industry, and award-winning public awareness campaigns, most recently Santa Forgot.Santa ForgotLast November the charity used a memorable advert ‘Santa Forgot’ in a striking alternative to other charities’ Christmas appeal adverts. Narrated by Stephen Fry, the advert imagines a world where Santa is living with the effects of dementia and no longer visits children on Christmas Eve. “But we believe in the power of research to change the future. Do you?” It was so powerful that it had to be shown on TV later in the evenings to avoid upsetting children.last_img read more

first_imgFlanked by a large white “Bird of Freedom” wearing a “Free Mumia” sign, dozens of activists from Philadelphia and New York gathered outside the office of District Attorney Larry Krasner on Feb. 28. The demonstration was called in anticipation of Krasner’s finally filing a response on March 2 to the Post Conviction Relief Act petitions filed by Mumia Abu-Jamal’s attorneys last September.Bird of Freedom for Mumia in Philadelphia, Feb. 28. (WW photo: Joe Piette)However, just days earlier on Feb. 24, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court accepted a King’s Bench petition from Fraternal Order of Police proxy Maureen Faulkner charging Krasner with being biased toward Abu-Jamal. The FOP petition sought to replace Krasner with conservative Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro and bury new evidence uncovered in December 2018 in hidden file boxes. The demonstration outside Krasner’s office was followed by a spirited march through Center City, ending outside Shapiro’s office where activists blocked a busy intersection before dispersing.Pam Africa, Minister of Confrontation for the Move Organization and leader of International Concerned Family and Friends of Mumia Abu-Jamal, opened the rally: “The struggle to free Mumia is a fire they can’t put out. They want to bury the evidence that Mumia is innocent. The system has used every ploy they can come up with to try to kill Mumia.”Johanna Fernandez, with the Campaign to Bring Mumia Home, stated, “A King’s Bench petition essentially asks the courts to intervene in a situation of ‘great public interest.’ It is not intended to carry out a vendetta when an individual in the case doesn’t like what the state is doing. … In all his briefs DA Krasner has vigorously opposed Mumia. The only thing he did, and that’s because he was told to by Judge Tucker, was to release hidden evidence. Now they want to bury that, too.”Keith Cook, Abu-Jamal’s older brother, concluded the initial rally, calling for justice for his family: “We got railroaded because they wouldn’t let us speak in the court 37 years ago. Now we are so close to freedom, and we won’t let them silence us this time.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_img August 3, 2016 – Updated on August 4, 2016 Reporters Without Borders leads international alliance in a campaign against the surveillance of foreign journalists by German Foreign Intelligence Agency BND Reporters Without Borders is today launching, jointly with an international alliance of human-rights organisations, journalists’ associations and media, a global campaign to protect foreign journalists from surveillance by the German Federal Intelligence Agency (Bundesnachrichtendienst –BND). The goal of the campaign is to include in the revised BND law a clause protecting journalists. The signatories of the appeal consider the global mass surveillance by the BND to be a violation of human rights and they regard the surveillance of foreign journalists in particular as a serious encroachment on press freedom worldwide.

The petition will be presented to the Christian Democratic Union (CDU)/Christian Social Union (CSU) and Social Democratic (SPD) parliamentary groups in mid-September.Apart from Reporters Without Borders, the following organisations have so far joined the initiative: Amnesty International, the European Federation of Journalists (EFJ), the European Centre for Press and Media Freedom (ECPMF), German Federation of Journalists (DJV), German Union of Journalists (dju), Netzwerk Recherche (nr), n-ost, Weltreporter, Freelens, Journalistinnenbund. Other voices echo this campaign. “Surveillance amendments in new law in Germany pose a threat to media freedom”, OSCE Representative Dunja Mijatović said, asking Bundestag to reconsider bill.The draft BND law does not contain any restriction for surveillance of journalists or editorial offices outside the EU. In the wake of the NSA scandal, the governing coalition is intending to use the reform to make it legal to spy on non-EU citizens outside the EU. This is simply a way of allowing the BND to keep watch on foreign journalists by the back door: whereas the G10 law (named after Article 10 of the German Constitution, which stipulates the privacy of correspondence, post and telecommunications) puts major legal obstacles in place to prevent systematic spying on individual journalists other than in exceptional cases, the BND reform bill could become the first German law on surveillance to exclude provisions for the explicit protection of journalists. Spying on journalists is an attack on press freedomThe signatories of the appeal emphasise that spying on journalists – anywhere in the world – constitutes an encroachment on press freedom. In a democratic, pluralist society, journalists carry a special responsibility to keep a check on States’ affairs through critical questioning and investigative research. They thus serve society and help to uncover irregularities. Confidential communication – especially to protect their sources – is therefore essential. If, however, the State eavesdrops on journalists’ communication and thus finds out what journalists are investigating about it, they can no longer do their job properly. This is a particularly thorny issue, because the BND can provide foreign intelligence services with information that they are not allowed to collect in their own countries. This creates an international surveillance network, which ultimately affects all journalists.The participating organisations are therefore appealing to the German federal government and the Bundestag to urgently reconsider their plans and to include an exemption clause for journalists, including those from abroad, in the draft law. In no other country in the world has the NSA scandal had such long-term political repercussions as in Germany. The current legislative process is therefore being followed attentively abroad. All the more important, then, to enact laws that conform with human rights and not to set dangerous precedents that repressive governments can use to justify their own surveillance practices.Last year, Reporters Without Borders brought a case before the Federal Administrative Court concerning the surveillance practices of the BND.
