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. It can be extremely unnerving to see the value of your shares portfolio plummet during stock market crashes. But, for most of us, it’s not something that should lead to sleepless nights.The vast majority of investors — myself included — make their fortunes from UK shares over a number of years. Over a time horizon of 10 years or more, the sting of severe share price corrections tends to be sucked out.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…That’s not to say I’m not thinking of buying UK shares on the basis of some near-term stock price gains though. I pick shares that I’m confident will be thriving a decade or more from now.Buying on the basis of how their share prices will perform over the coming weeks or months often spells disaster. But one can marry up these two themes to give eventual returns an extra little boost.On top of this, there are plenty of quality UK shares that have been unjustly sold off during the recent period of heightened risk aversion. The FTSE 100 for instance has dropped to its lowest since April, mirroring price action across other major global indices. This provides an opportunity for shrewd investors to nip in and grab a bargain or two.2 top UK shares on my watchlistLet me talk you through two top UK shares I’m thinking of buying for my Stocks and Shares ISA. I reckon they could rocket in price in the days and weeks ahead:Redrow’s shares look mighty cheap following recent share price weakness. It trades on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 13 times, a reading which doesn’t fully reflect the strength of trading that Britain’s homebuilders are still experiencing despite the poor economic outlook. There simply aren’t enough homes to go around and this is driving demand for new-builds through the roof (so to speak). In September, Redrow said its order book was up 39% year on year. Reservations (in value terms) were also up 12% in the first 11 weeks of the current fiscal year too. I’m expecting another sunny set of numbers in the UK share’s AGM statement of Monday, 9 November. And this could help its share price to rally again.Pets at Home is nowhere near as cheap as Redrow. In fact, its P/E ratio of 28 times for this year looks pretty hefty on paper. But I believe the pet care retailer is worth every penny. Retail stocks are a risky pick today but this UK share doesn’t have much to fear. Spending on animal care continues to go from strength to strength. And Pets at Home — which sells food, toys, medicines and everything in between, and provides vet and grooming services too — should deliver mighty shareholder returns as a result. I expect another sunny set of trading numbers when interim results come out on Wednesday, 25 November. And this could send its share price to fresh record highs. 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.

We’ll need to take them on up front and when we have opportunities to score points we have to be good enough to take them.“We love Twickenham.

Joe Marler discusses new documentary inspired by his own meltdown

first_imgThursday May 13, 2021 Joe Marler discusses new documentary inspired by his own meltdown Joe Marler was a guest on Good Morning Britain today to discuss his new documentary Big Boys Don’t Cry, which aired on Wednesday.ADVERTISEMENTThe documentary sees Marler travel across the UK exploring ways in which poor mental health can be managed.The England and Harlequins prop has been very candid in the past about his battle with depression and his mental health struggles, and even urged the British and Irish Lions to add a specialist counsellor to their touring party this year to help players and staff cope with an extended spell in their bubble environment.Appearing on Good Morning Britain the day after the documentary aired, Marler shared what inspired the film.“It dawned on me when I had a big meltdown in the back end of 2018,” the 2017 Lions tourist said.“And I talk about it briefly in the film and I talk about it more in my book. I had lost control and I didn’t like who I was anymore. It just exploded at home and enough was enough. I had upset my wife, I felt ashamed of who I was and what I was doing so I had to go and get help. Fortunately, I found someone to help me, a psychiatrist, then had the diagnosis of depression and moved forward on medication.ADVERTISEMENT“I opened up to my wife and various close friends and one friend in particular was Gray Hughes, who’s the director of this documentary.“He came up with the idea ‘look mate, let’s go and meet loads of different people who deal with their mental health struggles in different ways using different techniques and that will help you grow and help you understand how different people deal with different things and how it works for them. It might not work for you, it might work for you, let’s try it. I’ll use a camera to film it all as well.’“So I went ‘oh, okay, so this seems to be a catch-22. You’re suggesting going to get mental health help but you want to film every moment of it.’“It was Gray’s idea and we’ve been working on it for a little while and I have to say I was a little bit scared, a little bit nervous, about doing it.”There was also time to reflect on his singing ability.

Ag Lender Survey Shows Lower Profitability and Higher Concerns

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Ag Lender Survey Shows Lower Profitability and Higher Concerns The American Bankers Association teamed up with Farmer Mac for their Fall 2019 Ag Lender Survey.The biggest takeaway from the report is that the agricultural economy and farm income remain under stress, with little if any signs of improvement ahead in 2020.Over 82 percent of lenders in the survey said farm profits were being squeezed this year, with every region in the survey reporting profitability declines in their respective areas.The top concerns for producers in the survey included income, liquidity, and leverage, but trade, tariffs, and weather moved up on the list.The top concerns for lenders included credit quality, competition for loans, as well as weaker loan demand.Lender sentiment remained cautious between August of 2018 and August of 2019. A similar percentage of lenders reported farm profitability declines, increasing farm leverage, and increasing loan default rates.Dairy, grains, and cattle were the sectors that gave lenders the most concern, while they were less concerned about the swine, poultry, and vegetable sectors.Survey respondents generally expect higher loan delinquency rates going into 2020 for both production and real estate. In spite of quality concerns over credit, lenders remain positive about approvals.

New campaign launched to defend independent press against judicial threats

first_img May 18, 2021 Find out more At a press conference held today at its Paris headquarters with the Algerian Press Freedom Collective, Reporters Without Borders reiterated its call to the Algerian authorities to stop judicial harassment of the privately-owned press and to release Le Matin editor Mohamed Benchicou, who has been in prison for exactly one year.At the same time, the Algerian Press Freedom Collective and the newspaper L’Humanité called for a protest rally outside the Algerian embassy in Paris at 6 p.m. tomorrow, the anniversary of Benchicou’s arrest.Reporters Without Borders accused the judicial authorities of using the Tuesday sessions of the magistrate’s court in the Algiers district of Sidi M’hamed to convict journalists of press offences. “There has not been such a harsh crackdown on the press for years,” the press freedom organisation said. “The number of independent news outlets is shrinking fast and press freedom is now in great danger in Algeria.”The organisation said it appealed to President Abdelaziz Bouteflika’s common sense, pointing out that on 3 May the president said, “the national institutions are not against press freedom.”Reporters Without Borders roundly condemned the application of prison sentences in libel cases and reiterated its call for press offences to be decriminalized by means of a reform of the criminal code, as requested by the UN special rapporteur for the right to freedom of opinion and expression.Article 144 (b) of the criminal codes makes insulting or defaming the president punishable by 2-12 months in prison, in order to silence his critics, and permits the imposition of often exorbitant fines with the sole aim of squeezing independent newspapers out of existence.Benchicou, whose daily newspaper, Le Matin, has been forced to close, has always been outspoken in his criticism of the authorities. Although his health has deteriorated in prison, his request for release on medical grounds was rejected on 10 April. Five other Le Matin journalists have been given prison sentences, in a clear sign that the government is bent on eliminating one of the country’s most independent newspapers for good.In addition to Benchicou’s release, Reporters Without Borders said it also called for the release of Er-Raï El Aam press group president Amhed Benaoum, who has been imprisoned since 28 June 2004, an end to all libel prosecutions and a discharge for all convicted journalists.The latest of many Algerian journalists to get prison sentences recently is Djamaldine Benchenouf, who lives in exile in France. The Sétif appeal court sentenced him in absentia to three years in prison for two articles he wrote for the Liberté daily newspaper about embezzlement within the National Social Insurance Fund and the General Union of Algerian Workers.The sentence was imposed although a lower court investigating judge shelved the case in July 2004 and Benchenouf never received any subsequent summons notifying them that it had been reopened. His family, which is still in Algeria, has received repeated summonses and have been subject to other forms of administrative harassment since the outset.Liberté’s former editor, Farid Alilat, was sentenced in absentia on 24 May to a year in prison and a fine of 100,000 dinars (1,100 euros) for a series of cartoons and a column in 2003 that were deemed “insulting to the president.”The managing editor of the evening newspaper Le Soir d’Algérie, Fouad Boughanem, and one of his columnists, Hakim Laâlam, were sentenced by an Algiers court on 17 May to two years in prison and a fine of 250,000 dinars (2,750 euros) for libel. The newspaper was also fined the same amount.Four Le Matin journalists were given prison sentences in libel actions on 19 April. They were Abla Cherif and Hassane Zerrouky, who got two months, and Youcef Rezzoug and Yasmine Ferroukhi, who got three months. The same day, Benchicou received an additional five-month prison sentence.Meanwhile, the Jean Picollec publishing house, which published a book by Benchicou called “Bouteflika: an Algerian impostor,” was the target of a recent attack in which its front door was broken down with a sledge hammer. Nothing was taken and the only thing damaged inside was a poster about the book. Algeria : Reporter jailed after covering Tuareg protests in southern Algeria Algeria pressures reporters by delaying renewal of accreditation At a press conference held today at its Paris headquarters with the Algerian Press Freedom Collective, Reporters Without Borders reiterated its call to the Algerian authorities to stop judicial harassment of the privately-owned press and to release Le Matin editor Mohamed Benchicou, who has been in prison for exactly one year.

Murder Convicts Sentenced To Life Without Remission Not Entitled To Furlough : Delhi HC [Read Judgment]

The petioners before the Single Bench of Justice Mukta Gupta were a rape and murder convict (namely Sanjay Kumar Valmiki), convicted for offences punishable under Section 302/376(2)(f)/363/201 IPC and sentenced to rigorous imprisonment for life with stipulation of a minimum period of 25 years of incarceration without remission, and the second (namely Chandra Kant Jha), a serial killer, convicted in three different FIRs for offence punishable under Section 302 IPC and in two of the FIRs, awarded sentence of death by the Trial Court. In the case of the latter, however, the death penalty was not confirmed by the High Court in the Reference and instead this Court awarded sentence of rigorous imprisonment for life with the direction that the convict shall not be released on remission for remainder of his natural life except for the exercise of power under Articles 72 and 161 of the Constitution of India. “When in custody a prisoner is entitled to reprieve by three different remedies i.e. bail during trial or during the pendency of appeal and by parole and furlough after the conviction and sentence are passed and upheld in appeal”, said the bench, proceeding to note the relevant provisions of the Delhi Prisons Act, 2000 and Delhi Prison Rules 2018 for the grant of remission and consequently grant of furlough. It noted that ordinary remission is defined under Rule 1174 and eligibility therefore is spelt out in Rule 1175. A reading of these Rules in conjunction reveals that once a prisoner is not eligible for grant of ordinary remissions, when so ordered by a Court, he would not eligible for grant of Annual Good Conduct Remission (in short AGLR) as in terms of Rule 1178, for getting AGCR, a prisoner should be first eligible for grant of ordinary remissions. “Consequently, a prisoner awarded a fixed term sentence would not be entitled to Annual Good Conduct Report, which, as explained above, is an eligibility criteria for grant of furlough”, stated the Court. Further, it observed that the note appended to Rule 1171 of the Delhi Prison Rules, 2018 clarifies that if any statute or the court in its order of sentence has denied the remission to the prisoner and thereby not specified the kind of remission to be denied then all kinds of remission will be denied. Therefore, unless the sentencing Court while stipulating the condition of no remission specifies debarment of any particular kind of remission, all kinds of remissions shall be barred to a prisoner. “Consequently, as the sentences awarded to the petitioners bar consideration for remission for fixed number of years in the case of Valmiki and for the remainder life in case of Jha, the petitioners cannot be said to be eligible for grant of remission and consequently furlough”, opined the bench. The Single Judge observed that as laid down by the Supreme Court in its various decisions parole is an exercise of discretion whereas furlough is a salutary right of the convict to be considered for release which the convict can claim if he satisfies the requirement of the Act and the Rules. Parole is granted to meet certain emergencies whereas furlough accrues to the petitioner on compliance of the conditions prescribed. From Rules 1171 to 1178 and Rule 1223 of the Delhi Prison Rules, 2018 it is evident that a prisoner is entitled to furlough only if he has earned three Annual Good Conduct reports and consequently three Annual Good Conduct Remission. Where the sentence of the convict bars grant of remission, the pre-requisite of attaining three Annual Good Conduct Remission is not satisfied and hence the threshold required to qualify for grant of furlough is not met. “Hence a prisoner who is not entitled to any remission for a particular period or for the remainder of his life, would not be entitled to furlough as he does not qualify for the threshold requirement”, iterated the bench. The Court noted that the petitioners have neither challenged the validity of the provisions of the Delhi Prisons Act and Delhi Prison Rules, 2018 nor have brought out that the Rule 1171 creating a distinction, in respect of a class of cases, where the courts adopt the third category of sentence i.e. more than 14 years imprisonment without remission, is an arbitrary exercise of power. The bench proceeded to express the view that “As the period on furlough is counted towards the sentence undergone as provided under Rule 1199, grant of furlough to a convict who cannot be granted remission for a particular period would amount to granting the relief as forbidden by the order on sentence”. “It is trite law that where a power is given to do a certain thing in a certain way, the thing must be done in that way or not at all”. The Court noted that the power of remission under Articles 72 and 161 of the President and the Governor, is unaffected by provisions of any statute or even by a judgment of a Court prescribing sentence of life without remission. The two other kinds of remissions available to a prisoner are one under Section 432 Cr.P.C. and the other earned by a prisoner under the Prison Rules, based on his/her good behaviour and/or such other stipulations prescribed in the Prison Rules. Though the sources of these two remissions are different statutes, however, grant of remission earned by a prisoner under the Prison Rules, whether for good behaviour or for complying other conditions has bearing on remission of the substantive sentence granted under Section 432 Cr.P.C., as while considering grant of remission under Section 432 Cr.P.C., the earlier remission granted are taken into consideration. “This is evident from Rule 1189 of the Delhi Prison Rules, 2018, which reads that ‘In the case of a prisoner serving more than one life sentence, twenty years shall be treated as the total of all his sentences for calculating remission'”, said the bench. It continued to observe that “though in the present decision this Court is not dealing with the issue of grant of parole, however, it would be appropriate to note that as per the Delhi Prison Rules, a convict can be considered for parole for one month after six months have elapsed from the first parole”. “Thus a convict can be considered for roughly two paroles in a year to meet to exigency including to re-establish social ties”. Agreeing that the availability of parole to re-establish social ties and family links is a reformative approach, the bench expressed the opinion that “merely because a category of convicts with specific stipulation in the order on sentence being not entitled to three furloughs in a year totaling to seven weeks cannot be said to be a non-reformative approach as the remedy of parole is still available to them including to re-establish family ties”. The bench noted that section 302 IPC prescribes two kinds of punishment i.e. with death or imprisonment for life, and that the sentencing courts are often faced with a dilemma when the offence does not fall in the category of rarest of rare case or considering the other mitigating circumstances sentence of death is too excessive and sentence of imprisonment of life which would be fourteen years actual imprisonment in terms of Section 433A Cr.P.C. too inadequate, the courts resort to the third category, “By awarding the sentence to the petitioners in the third category the courts have already adopted a reformative approach. Further, as noted above, petitioners would be entitled to seek parole even for re-establishing social and family ties. Hence, the contention of learned counsels for the petitioners that in case furlough is not granted, the petitioners will be denied consideration of their case from a reformative angle is incorrect”, concluded the bench.

That’s what the annual Heart Walk is all about –raising awareness of heart disease and raising funds for research and education.”Toney said “Life is why” the Pike County Heart Walk joins with hundreds of other communities across the state to raise funds for the fight against heart disease. “The ‘Red Cap Survivors Breakfast’ will be at 8 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 13, at Park Memorial’s Family Life Center,” Toney said. “We invite everyone who is a survivor of heart disease or stroke to join us for this special time together. We have a list for the breakfast but any survivor who is not sure they are the list is encouraged to call 566-7270 as we are trying to update our list but you don’t have to be on the list to attend the breakfast.” Toney said donations to the Pike County Heart Walk are always welcomed and can be dropped off with Tracey Davis at the Troy Bank & Trust Main Branch in Troy.
