Whether it is a friend from work giving you a heads-up, or a suggestion you read in a newspaper or online, these tips are usually relevant to the moment. If a stock is being spoken about, there must be some reason it is getting attention now. This is why I think share tips can be a useful way to find the best shares to buy.Share tips worth heedingThe quality of share tips can be as variable as the quantity. Some will be winners, some losers, and that comes down to the quality of the source.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…Many of the analysts providing stock tips online and in print are trained and regulated. Some of them have passed exams and registered with the Financial Conduct Authority in order to be able to give advice. They usually stick to what they know, only reporting on a specific sector or a small selection of stocks they know inside out. This provides a level of trust that you cannot get from a casual acquaintance. But even qualified tipsters do not always get it right. A share tip can give you a great starting point. However, you should always carry out your own research before investing money. There will also be an element of luck. If a passing comment had led you to buy shares in AstraZeneca 10 years ago, you would be sitting on a pretty penny now.Discovering the best shares to buy right nowWhen someone gives me a share tip, the first thing I do is look it up online. I look at its stock chart to get an idea of how long it has been listed and the direction its share price is moving. Next, I look at the company website a general overview of what exactly the company does. Checking the investor relations section for news releases is a good idea. I then find the price-to-earnings ratio, dividend yield, earnings per share, cash flow, and debt level. All this information helps me piece together a clearer picture of what the company is about and where it stands financially today. Never take share tips at face value, but do not rule them out either. They can provide the perfect launch pad for the discovery of a new and exciting addition to a long-term investor’s portfolio.  Pump and dumpShare tips are sometimes used by unscrupulous individuals in a process called ‘pump and dump’. This is when a share is promoted to the point that its share price inflates. Then, those behind the scheme sell their holdings at a profit. It is highly illegal but still occurs, especially in online forums and social media. The AIM index is rife with these antics because it is not as strictly regulated as the FTSE 350 and admission is easier. It would be wrong to say avoid all companies on AIM as it contains many honourable constituents. However, you should be mindful when evaluating share tips of this nature. When considering where to invest money to get good returns I think stock recommendations can provide an excellent stepping stone to finding the best shares to buy right now.  See all posts by Kirsteen Mackaycenter_img Kirsteen has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

THROWBACK THURSDAY: Guilhem Guirado lines up and thumps Peter Horn with huge midfield hit

first_imgThursday Apr 25, 2019 THROWBACK THURSDAY: Guilhem Guirado lines up and thumps Peter Horn with huge midfield hit France skipper Guilhem Guirado made this almighty tackle on Scotland’s Peter Horn when the two teams met in the Six Nations in Paris in February. The hosts won the match 27-10, after they had introduced some youngsters to their starting line up. ADVERTISEMENTHooker Guirado read the play beautifully as Scotland’s Grant Gilchrist pulled the pass back to Horn, who unfortunately was a sitting duck as he was lined up and demolished in a seismic tackle.While there wasn’t a whole lot made of it at the time, this short edit shows just how brutal the hit was, arguably one of the best and biggest tackles of the Championship.WATCH: Lawes ups the ante as he flies into midfield tank Bastareaud Guirado will leave Toulon after this season, moving across to Top 14 rivals Montpellier.“I have met a great deal of people in rugby and Guirado is one of those really, really good people. A wonderful player and a wonderful human being, a great guy,” said Toulon president Mourad Boudjellal.Clearly, he’s a great defensive presence too.

It’s the first flagship store of the fashion brand of Juun.J. It’s divided into two floors; the first floor comprising cafe and women’s wear, while the second floor men’s wear. We used natural elements such as light and shadow in order to express darkness within space using black – identity color of Juun.J brand.Save this picture!© Yongjoon ChoiSave this picture!© Yongjoon ChoiSave this picture!© Yongjoon ChoiThe shape of the architecture was initiated from geometry that is the basic form in all designs. Juun.J’s flagship store surely has a certain form but in the shape like a shadow without exact shape, which is similar to Juun.J as it invites endless curiosity to people. “Black is a color symbolic of Juun.J and the most beautiful shadow out of the shapeless existences is also black.“ If we look at the traditional house structure in the East, large roof files are put above the house basically and the whole structure is absorbed into within the deep and wide shade generated by the awning.Save this picture!© Yongjoon ChoiDeep darkness below the awning is shadow as well as black within the space. In an attempt to turn black into space, we organized space by either hanging plenty of objet or separating them and generating shadows. All spaces except white part for women’s wear on the first floor are composed of varied densities of darkness. While the first floor has contrasts with some white part, clothes here are also hung in darkness.Save this picture!© Yongjoon ChoiThe space of cafe generates various darknesses due to natural light dramatically penetrating from the ceiling. And eaves spreading forward work as an awning and make visitors feel natural light coming as a result of reflection on the garden. They can see the garden from within the space and find another shadow as a tree is floating in the garden. The shape of the architecture is composed of circle, quadrangle and triangle, basic forms in all designs and the architecture is designed with the concept of dark matters of the universe.Save this picture!© Yongjoon ChoiEspecially, the garden-shaped circle, which is a space drawing natural light, plays an important role in making this dark matter a striking contrast. This architecture and space started very much from the Oriental way of thinking, and the structure of space and formative approach were complete based on the Western style. We expressed achromatic color of black as darkness within the space instead of a simple painting and, as far as the used materials are concerned, we diversely applied materials that black has intrinsically instead of painting them in black.Save this picture!© Yongjoon ChoiProject gallerySee allShow lessDown the Rabbit Hole Store / Kilogram StudioSelected ProjectsThe Glass Fortress / Archismith ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Architects: WGNB Area Area of this architecture project Lead Architect: South Koreacenter_img Houses Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description Photographs:  Yongjoon Choi Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Manufacturers: AutoDesk, TERRACO, JIN Steel, Micrete, Trimble, Unicor International 2019 Year:  “COPY” CopyHouses•Seoul, South Korea ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/920562/juu-flagship-store-wgnb Clipboard Juun.J Flagship Store / WGNBSave this projectSaveJuun.J Flagship Store / WGNB CopyAbout this officeWGNBOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSeoulOn InstagramSouth KoreaPublished on July 09, 2019Cite: “Juun.J Flagship Store / WGNB” 09 Jul 2019.

EPA Hurts Ethanol Demand in Proposed RVO levels for 2020

first_imgHome Energy EPA Hurts Ethanol Demand in Proposed RVO levels for 2020 The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued a proposed rule under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) program that would set the minimum amount of renewable fuels that must be supplied to the market in calendar year 2020. President Trump claims to be a big supporter of renewable fuels, but his agency, the EPA in their latest proposed rule, released over the holiday weekend, would hurt ethanol demand.“The proposed rule is a direct contradiction to the President’s commitment to the RFS and to the ethanol industry,” said  Geoff Cooper, with the Renewable Fuels Association. The proposed level of ethanol to be blended in 2020 would be 15 billion gallons, unchanged from the level set in 2019. Cooper notes the agency did not address the issue of small refinery wavers or the court-ordered make up of lost demand from 2016,“We are frustrated the EPA did not account for potential waived gallons going forward in the proposed rule,” said National Corn Growers Association President and Nebraska farmer Lynn Chrisp. “If the EPA continues to grant retroactive waivers, the RVO numbers are meaningless and the EPA is not following the law. Farmers are facing a very tough economic environment and the continued waiver abuse chips away at farmers’ bottom line.”Cooper said his group is likely going to have to take the EPA to court, yet again, to get them to follow the law. American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE) CEO Brian Jennings says the proposal “fails to restore a 500-million-gallon shortfall the D.C. Circuit Court ordered EPA to handle following the Americans for Clean Energy et al v. EPA lawsuit, which recently resigned EPA Assistant Administrator for Air and Radiation William Wehrum told ACE members EPA intended to address in the 2020 proposed rule in April.”Several weeks ago, President Trump visited an ethanol plant in Iowa to announce year round sales of E-15. But Cooper says this EPA rule will negate much of that gain, “Year-round E-15 does not get us much, about 50 million gallons of new ethanol demand this year as a result of year round E-15 sales. This pales in comparison to the loss we will see from wavers.” Cooper says the proposal “completely betrays President Trump’s commitment” to uphold the integrity of the RFS by neglecting to prospectively reallocate small refinery exemptions and by blatantly ignoring a court order to restore improperly waived gallons.

Ajay Bhalla, wrote to the Chiref Secretaries of all States urging them to ensure migrant workers are not walking on roads and railway tracks after their movement has been facilitated by the Government.Now that ‘Shramik’ trains and special buses have been deployed by the Centre to cater to the transportation need of migrant workers, the onus of implementing the Government’s decision lies with States and UTs, said the Home Secretary in a letter sent on Friday night.”As you are aware, Government has allowed the movement of migrant workers by buses and ‘Shramik’ special trains to enable them to travel to their native places. It is now the responsibility of all States and Union Territories to ensure that movement of stranded migrant workers who are willing to go to their Home States is facilitated.” “States/UTs should widely disseminate the arrangements for travel, in special buses/’Shramik” special train amongst the migrant workers and persuade/counsel them that they should not be walking when they can travel in buses/trains”, wrote Ajay Bhalla in his letter.It is further informed that the Railway Ministry, due to the cooperation of the States/UTs, has been able to ensure that more than 100 ‘Shramik’ trains are operational daily, and is further in a position to arrange additional trains as per requirement. In this light, State Chief Secretaries have been urged to ensure migrant workers do not take to walking on roads or railway tracks in an attempt to reach home, especially since the same is being facilitated by the Rail Ministry.This concern was raised as movement of migrant workers is still noticeable wherein they have been seen on roads, railway tracks and travelling in trucks across different parts of the country. Citing a letter written by the MHA on May 11, it is stated that migrant workers continue to be on the move despite such an order.”In the letter, the situation of migrant workers walking on the roads and on railway tracks was highlighted and it was advised that in case they are found in such condition, they should be appropriately counselled, taken to nearby shelters, and provided with food, water, etc. till such time they are facilitated to board the ‘Sharmik’ special trains or buses to their native places. However, movement of migrant workers walking on roads, railway tracks and traveling in trucks is still being noticed in different parts of the country”, conveyed the Home Secretary.Earlier in the day, the Supreme Court had refused to entertain a plea seeking relief for migrants walking on road.”How can we stop them from walking? It is impossible for this Court to monitor who is walking and who is not walking?”, the bench orally observed while dismissing an application seeking urgent directions to all DMs across India to identify walking labourers and to ensure that they reach their native places, free of cost and in a dignified manner  Union Home Secretary writes to Chief Secretaries of all states urging them to ensure that there is no movement of migrant workers walking on roads and railways as their movement is facilitated through ‘Shramik’ trains and special buses.#Migrants #MigrantsOnTheRoad @HMOIndia pic.twitter.com/KkMPdQPQRJ— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) May 15, 2020Next Storylast_img read more

Breonna Taylor case: Public outraged after 1 officer indicted for endangering neighbors

first_imgCopyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved. iStock/ChiccoDodiFCBY: EMILY SHAPIRO and IVAN PEREIRA, ABC News(LOUISVILLE) — People in Louisville and across the country are unleashing their anger after a Kentucky grand jury on Wednesday indicted one officer for allegedly endangering the neighbors of Breonna Taylor during the police shooting that killed her.Officer Brett Hankison, who has been fired, was indicted on three counts of first-degree wanton endangerment for allegedly endangering Taylor’s neighbors when he fired into the apartment complex.The neighboring apartment had three people inside, thus the three charges against Hankinson, said Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron. The other officers involved in Taylor’s death were not charged.Taylor family attorney Ben Crump tweeted Wednesday, “NOTHING for the murder of Breonna Taylor. This is outrageous and offensive!”“If Brett Hankison’s behavior was wanton endangerment to people in neighboring apartments, then it should have been wanton endangerment in Breonna Taylor’s apartment too. In fact, it should have been ruled wanton murder!” he wrote.Taylor’s sister, Ju’Niyah Palmer, posted to Instagram, “Sister I am so sorry.”In an Instagram story, Palmer said Taylor, who had previously worked as an EMT for the city, was “failed by a system” she “worked hard for.”On the streets of Louisville, after the sole indictment was announced, some wept, some chanted and some marched.Women in tears after the charges are announced. Three counts of Wanton endangerment in the first degree, a class D felony in Kentucky carrying 1-5 years in prison, plus potential monetary fines #Louisville #BreonnaTaylor pic.twitter.com/oHsFXHJjlm— Brendan Gutenschwager (@BGOnTheScene) September 23, 2020Maj. Stephen Martin, a spokesman for the Kentucky National Guard, told ABC News that Gov. Andy Beshear authorized the deployment of a portion of the Kentucky National Guard to Louisville.“We will be engaged in limited and specific missions, protecting critical infrastructure. Our Guard leadership has been directed to retain command and control at all times while working with the Louisville Metro Police Department,” he said in a statement.Beshear was scheduled to hold a news conference at 4 p.m. Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer said there will be a 72-hour curfew starting Wednesday night.Taylor, a 26-year-old Black woman, was shot dead by police while in her Louisville home on March 13. Taylor and her boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, were asleep when three Louisville Metro Police Department officers, including Hankinson, tried to execute a “no-knock” search warrant. The officers were investigating a suspected drug operation linked to Taylor’s ex-boyfriend.Hankinson was fired and the other officers involved were placed on administrative duty.Taylor’s death sparked months of nationwide protests against police violence and calls for the officers to be charged.Across the country, people turned to social media Wednesday to voice their frustration and anger.Chanelle Helm, an organizer of Black Lives Matter Louisville, said, “We shouldn’t be too surprised at what’s happening.”“What is frustrating is that white supremacy, this government and its elected officials continue to deny us healing and any taste of what real justice looks like. Justice in this country is nonexistent,” Helm said in a statement. “This country hasn’t changed. This country hasn’t come to the realization that fascism was its only goal. We move every day for capitalism and not for humanity. Instead of bringing in paths for healing, we keep bringing in more law enforcement, more military and more representations of the systems we desperately need to dismantle.”The ACLU of Kentucky called this “the latest miscarriage of justice in our nation’s long history of denying that Black lives matter.”“We join the Taylor family and the community in protesting and mourning the Commonwealth’s choice to deny justice for Breonna,” the ACLU said in a statement. “Breonna Taylor was killed when plainclothes officers used a no-knock warrant to enter her home in the middle of the night. They did not even perform life-saving measures as she took her last breaths after they shot her five times. Throughout this tragic series of events, including today, the police and prosecutors continuously have failed Breonna Taylor, her family, and Black Kentuckians.“This outcome shows us that true police accountability does not exist in Kentucky,” the ACLU said. “The results of this investigation reflect insufficient standards for police use of force, government-sanctioned violence and terror in communities of color, and a need to completely rebuild our justice system.”Derrick Johnson, president and CEO of the NAACP, tweeted, “Breonna Taylor deserves justice. This was not justice. 1 of the 3 officers was indicted for wanton endangerment. No one was charged for her murder.”“We must take this anger to the polls, and vote this November like we’ve never voted before,” he said. “Black Lives Matter.”Cameron said federal prosecutors are looking into potential civil rights charges.ABC News’ Matthew Seyler contributed to this report.last_img read more

Panel recommends Moderna vaccine, paving way for FDA authorization

first_imgnevodka/iStockBy ANNE FLAHERTY, STEPHANIE EBBS, SOPHIE TATUM, and ARIELLE MITROPOULOS(WASHINGTON) — Federal advisers voted overwhelmingly Thursday to recommend the Moderna vaccine for people over the age of 18, clearing a path for government authorization on what would become the nation’s second vaccine to prevent COVID-19.The panel of independent advisers, called the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee, found that based on evidence of a clinical trial involving 30,400 people, the Moderna two-dose vaccine is safe and likely 95% effective in preventing serious illness caused by the virus.The decision paves the way for a final green light from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, which in turn triggers the shipping of 5.9 million doses.“All these vaccines will not be the magic bullet and miraculously reverses all the damage this pandemic has caused. It gives us hope that one day in the not-too-distant future, some semblance of normalcy will be within our reach,” said Robert Wong, a physician at the Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Healthcare System, who spoke during a public comment session.Wong urged the panel and federal regulators to be “particularly cognizant” of ensuring equitable access among underserved and vulnerable populations that “have been disproportionately exacerbated by this pandemic.”The independent panel of advisers was asked to vote on this question: “Based on the totality of scientific evidence available, do the benefits of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine outweigh its risks for use in individuals 18 and older?”The questions of allergies were raised, following reports of rare reactions to the Pfizer vaccine, including two in Alaska on Wednesday.Dr. Doran Fink, a senior vaccine official at the FDA, said researchers didn’t have all the information. But he noted that “these cases underscore the need to be vigilant during the early stage of the campaign” and communicate those findings to the public.Fink said the FDA was working with Pfizer to further revise fact sheets and warnings to health care providers to make clear that any facility administering it “should ensure that medical treatment for managing serious allergic reactions is immediately available.” He said the FDA plans to do the same for Moderna, if it is ultimately authorized as expected.If authorized, the 5.9 million doses shipped from Moderna would be in addition to the 6.4 million doses provided by Pfizer-BioNTech that started to roll out this week after being the first to get emergency use authorization.Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, said Wednesday that people shouldn’t be concerned about having to choose between Moderna and Pfizer. An internal assessment by the FDA already found that the Moderna data show the benefits likely outweigh the risks.“Moderna certainly will be available soon and have the same level of efficacy … the same safety profile and virtually everything the same about that. So it wouldn’t make much difference which of those you take,” Fauci told CNBC’s “Health Returns.”One primary difference is that Modern requires fewer specific handling instructions because it does not require ultra-cold storage conditions like the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.Moderna also is seeking authorization for ages 18 and older, whereas Pfizer’s enrollment of older teens in trials this fall paved the way for authorization of anyone 16-plus.Which sites get the first doses are being decided by state governors and health departments. As recommended by an ethics board, hospitals have been first in line, injecting front-line workers most likely to come in contact with the virus.Nursing homes also are the priority, although they have been slower to roll out shots because they rely on CVS, Walgreens and other pharmacies that say the logistics are considerable to ensure no dose is wasted.Florida and West Virginia were among the first to host vaccine clinics at nursing homes on Wednesday, with a nationwide rollout at long-term care facilities expected on Monday.By February, it’s expected that other seniors living independently – anyone over age 65 – will be able to ask their pharmacy for a vaccination.“Our plans is to be able to immunize 100 million of these people (with) those vaccines by the end of the first quarter of the year 2021, somewhere during the month of March,” Moncef Slaoui, Trump’s top science adviser in the vaccine effort, told CNBC.A third vaccine also is on the horizon. Johnson & Johnson was expected by early January to know whether its vaccine was effective. If that vaccine comes online as well, that “will help us accelerate even faster coverage of that population,” Slaoui said.Estimates for the broader population remains March or April, with immunizations complete by June.“By the time we get into mid, fall of 2021, we can be approaching some level of normality,” he said.“I would think that would be things like being able to go to theaters, clearly feeling much more comfortable about school, having restaurants open to indoor dining,” Fauci said.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
