Today, I’ll discuss two that I think are among the best to buy for my portfolio in coming year.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…An exciting UK tech stockMultinational IT infrastructure services company Computacenter (LSE: CCC) has expanded rapidly over the previous five years. Earnings growth has been outstanding, which is an indicator of a growth stock with solid potential.Such growth has been reflected in its meteoric share price rise, which now stands around 195% higher than it was in 2016. That figure represents an annualised return of around 39%, well outperforming the FTSE 250 index.Last year’s lockdown restrictions caused a boom in business for the IT firm, which saw revenues and profits rise substantially. In fact, in a recently released trading statement, the company reported an 8% increase in group revenue.That said, it won’t be straightforward for the company to carry this momentum moving forward. Furthermore, the shares are on the expensive side, with a price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) of around 26.However, the company’s essential IT services are in demand by businesses across the globe. What’s more, Computacenter has capitalised on this by completing recent acquisitions in the US and France.With that in mind, I rate Computacenter shares a buy for my portfolio. To me, the company’s growth potential amply justifies the hefty price tag.Making the most of market volatilityThe second UK share I’m considering is CMC Markets (LSE: CMCX). I think the provider of online and mobile trading services has performed exceptionally over recent years  and could profit handsomely from a stock market rally in 2021.Like Computacenter, CMC has witnessed its valuation skyrocket, rising by 231% in just two years. Despite this, the company’s shares trade on a forward P/E ratio of 13, which indicates an element of value in my eyes.Last year, the company posted record first-half results as the Covid-19 pandemic boosted activity. What’s more, this strong trading performance shows no sign of letting up anytime soon. Last week, the online trading platform highlighted that full-year net operating income is set reach the upper end of market forecasts thanks to a continued strong performance.However, CMC’s continued success will rely on attracting and retaining a high level of both retail and institutional clients, which could prove to be unachievable.Nevertheless, CEO Peter Cruddas has stated that the company has a healthy range of projects in the pipeline, which could provide a catalyst for further growth in 2021 and beyond. As such, regardless of whether the stock market rallies this year, I’m confident CMC shares could provide a neat return. With that in mind, I’d buy and hold for the long term.last_img read more

State Rep Jennifer Sullivan Schedules Office Hours in Apopka

Please enter your email address here Tenita Reid April 7, 2016 at 6:06 pm It is April Fool’s Day, Friday, April 1st, 2016. I saw a lot of smoke and something burning north of Publix on Rock Springs Road today. I did not drive out that way, but I bet I can guess what it was, probably another “controlled burn” by the Florida Forest Service. This is ridiculous! The prevention is as bad as what they are trying to prevent, which is forest fires. Go figure. What difference does it matter if lightning starts the fire, or the Florida Forest Service? If lightning starts it, I say, then God intended it to happen, but when they do it, it is devastation trail to the wildlife, the forest, the habitat. A day ago I drove down Welch Road, and saw a deer near the green area around the lake. Today I saw wild turkeys. I understand why they do controlled burns but this is too often, and too many acres, and they are destroying our forests and wildlife, what is left, after the road building, the home building, the commercial building, and the hunts, and especially the bear hunt, where too many permits are issued!!! I don’t believe the FWC bear counts!!! Tenita Reid March 20, 2016 at 5:08 pm Tenita Reid Jennifer, I am concerned about the state conducting too many “controlled burns” in our area. The state is aerial setting fires at Lake Apopka Northshore, Rock Springs Reserve, Wekiva area, and Rock Springs Road area. This is killing off our wildlife, and burning and torching all kinds of animals. I have also noticed the state conducted burns before the bear hunt, and that is not right! It is causing breathing problems and burning eyes for me, and others, and I really feel for people with asthma. These burns are occurring too frequently, and it is not necessary. Lake Apopka Northshore is suppose to be a bird restoration area, and this is ridiculous, to aerial torch that area! You need to bring these concerns to the state. Please do something as you are our representative! I went to visit Ms. Sullivan on March 25, 2016 to speak to her with my concerns about these too frequent controlled burns which I think is killing off wildlife, destroying habitat, and causing breathing problems for people. Ms. Sullivan was not there, but an aide was there, and I talked with her. Someone told me it was her first day on the job. She was a really nice helpful lady, named Morgan Hatfield. She was, again, very helpful, and wrote down all my concerns to pass on to our state representative, Ms. Sullivan. I joked with Morgan about her last name, and I said something to the nature of “oh, the Hatfields and McCoys”. She then told me that there is also someone on Jennifer’s team with the last name McCoy. I laughed. I will let you all know what I am eventually told about all of these controlled burns being conducted by the Florida Forest Service. There is an article in today’s Orlando Sentinel (March 28th, 2016) page A1, bottom half, about the subject, “Florida’s wildfires tackled in many ways”. According to the article, the aerial burns are to prevent bigger wildfires, especially from lightning, and are started using what looks like fiery ping pong balls dropped from a helicopter, at 2,000 acres of Polk Co. wild land. That is the land parcel example referred to in the article. It is all over the state, and especially here in our area around Apopka. Too many acres going up in flames, destroying habitat, and wildlife. Read the article. They use a machine that injects anti-freeze into white plastic spheres filled with a flammable substance creating a chemical reaction that sparks within seconds! Just because a government agency tells you something is SOOOO necessary, don’t always assume they are correct!!! More later, on this subject. April 1, 2016 at 2:35 pm Tenita Reid Reply Tenita Reid Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 April 7, 2016 at 10:50 pm Reply Tenita Reid Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom March 28, 2016 at 3:35 pm 8 COMMENTScenter_img Tonight on Fox 35 news watch the video of the brush fire that threatened homes and burnt a bear cub that weighed 15 to 20 pounds and was rescued. No sign of its mother. 277 acres burnt. Nothing new! Does not id it as a controlled burn, but I suspect it was, because they screwed up and almost set nearby homes on fire, and burned wild animals. When will these controlled burns be stopped? Do people not care about the wildlife? Burnt on its face and paws. See for yourself. I am not carrying on about this for the heck of it, it is wrong! Reply March 29, 2016 at 3:39 pm If you live north of 441 you are most likely in District 31 and Jennifer Sullivan is your State Representative in Tallahassee.Representative Sullivan routinely schedules office hours in Apopka to answer questions and assist constituents.The next opportunity to meet with Sullivan and/or her staff will be on Friday, March 25, 2016, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Apopka City Hall.Please call Sullivan’s aide, Morgan Miller, at 352-742-6275 for an appointment.If you need immediate assistance, contact Sullivan’s local office at 352-742-6275.The local office is located at 2755 South Bay Street, Unit D, Eustis 32726, and is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Reply Please enter your name here Reply I have just one more thing to say today. Do you think it is right for them to set fires in Wekiva State Park, as controlled burns, while there are campers out there, who came to enjoy Florida’s beauty and tranquility? I’m sure they really enjoyed there camp out with that fire burning all around them, with the resulting black soot, and smoked up air, that burned their eyes, and made it hard for them to breathe? I watched it on tv. It is not right! UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Drive down Welch Road and head east, go past Thompson Road, and head on further, and look out to the left all along the Wekiva State Park fenced in area, and look at what these controlled burns are doing. Go on a little further, and look at the camping trailers there parked, in the middle of it, and look at how close the fire was to people camping there! Tell me what you think, after you go for a ride, to see how close the fire was to the camping area! Do you think that is right to do that in a state park with campers there to have a family fun outing? Usually you drive by and see deer, wild turkeys, and sometimes armadillos. The park land is burnt to a crisp! Reply Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter March 28, 2016 at 2:13 pm Reply Jennifer, I don’t know if you are seeing this posting, but the state is burning animals again with their controlled burns, and it is going on today, in Wekiva State Forest! This is wrong! This is too often! I am going to have to schedule a visit to come talk to you, to forward my concerns to the state, about this subject. It is ridiculous!

Manuel Dublán is an apartment building with shops on the ground floor, integrated into and on top of a courtyard house from the early 20th century. The plan layout of the original house, its central staircase, high ceilings, and original blue details on columns and decorative friezes were used as a starting point for the adaptive reuse project. The project integrates seventeen new apartments in a unique way that is sensitive to the historical context, contributing to the densification and reactivation of an underrated neighbourhood in Mexico City.Save this picture!© Onnis LuqueSave this picture!Save this picture!© Onnis LuqueSave this picture!© Onnis LuqueThe existing two-story house was completely restored and reused as apartments that enjoy generous heights and, in some cases, allow to accommodate lofts for sleeping. The original staircase connects these first two levels. Towards the street side, two commercial spaces are added to create an active and lively complex that contributes to the life of the city. Given that the building restores and reuses a house with a protected heritage architectural value, the project is exempt from parking requirements by city regulations and, therefore, a large parking lot for bicycles was integrated to promote the use of alternative modes of transport.Save this picture!© Onnis LuqueSave this picture!Save this picture!© Onnis LuqueAbove the historic facade, the new added floors are positioned inward to create a pedestrian-friendly urban scale, to establish a respectful dialogue between the original house and the new building, and to create large sheltered terraces. The upper floors are connected by a new sculptural staircase that floats over the central courtyard and is painted in the same blue colour that was discovered in the details of the original house. The apartments extend into the inner courtyard expanding circulation spaces to generate private outdoor areas for each unit. The spaces on the two upper floors are organized into duplex units, which connect directly to the rooftop terraces, with generous 360-degree views over the city.Save this picture!© Onnis LuqueProject gallerySee allShow lessBurgos & Garrido to Design the Nervión River Park in Barakaldo, SpainArchitecture NewsTECLA Technology and Clay 3D Printed House / Mario Cucinella ArchitectsSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Tacubaya, Ciudad de México, CDMX, MexicoLocation to be used only as a reference.

Eastern North Carolina: Culture eroded by capitalism

first_imgPoisonous swine waste from corporate farms in North Carolina.Eastern North Carolina residents are fighting to save their ancestral lands and waterways from corporate contamination. Generations of poor Black and Brown residents have lived and worked the coastal plain of North Carolina, but capitalism’s insatiable hunger for profit threatens to devour, not only working-class communities, but the foundation of life itself.A unique history of labor and cultureEastern North Carolina’s coastal plain is a place made up of barrier islands, brackish wetlands, rich arable soil, longleaf pines and sandhills. Its estuaries, including the Neuse and Cape Fear rivers, act as veins that connect communities by way of a common heritage. Prior to the arrival of white settlers, for over 12,000 years Indigenous people, including Algonquian, Iroquoian and Siouan groups, used the soil and all that the waters produced to sustain themselves — making use of plants, nuts, game and fish, as well as farming corn, potatoes, beans and tobacco.European settlers’ occupation of the land decimated Native populations through disease and forced removal, and today just 62,403 Native people remain in the region.Under the settler system of slave labor, Africans brought with them their own traditions of sustenance in an ecosystem unfamiliar to Europeans. During the U.S. Civil War, the Union Army could not have navigated the region’s rugged wetlands without the help of expert Black water guides.Leading up to and during Reconstruction, a complex history of Black maritime work began to unfold. Black fishers, pilots, ferry pilots and sailors commanded the waterways. Free Black residents — the largest population in the existing U.S. — were responsible for Wilmington’s economic rise as a seaport during the 19th century. Descendants of enslaved Africans, the Gullah-Geechee, used their knowledge of the coastal plain to farm their own land and build a cultural community and language that stretched from Cape Fear, N.C., to Jacksonville, Fla.Three centuries after white settlers arrived, the land looked very different from what Indigenous people had transformed it into. Half of the state’s wetlands were drained for agriculture and other human use. Roads, bridges, canals, sewage systems, dams and deforestation had permanently altered the landscape. Eastern North Carolina’s economy had begun to shrink as the seat of power moved from Wilmington to Raleigh, creating a distinct working-class cultural divide that stands to this day.Now, the area is mostly rural, but anchored by cities like Fayetteville, Jacksonville, Greenville and Wilmington. A quarter of the residents live in poverty — and the majority are people of color. Agriculture is a top industry in a region boasting cheap land and labor, and migrant Latinx workers are filling the ­demand for farmworkers.Ninety percent of that workforce is undocumented, still denied the most basic labor rights and minimum wage. In recent years, at least nine farmworkers have died from heatstroke, and countless others are subjected to racism, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement intimidation, long work hours and numerous hazards to their health.Corporate profits take priorityNorth Carolina’s declining tobacco industry has been replaced by a growing meat industry experiencing rapid consolidation over the past 30 years. In 1985, the top four pork producers made up 32 percent of the market. By 2007, their share had increased to 69 percent. The state is now the second top producer of pork and the third leading producer of poultry in the U.S.In just 20 years, meat farming went from several family farms to thousands of concentrated animal feeding operations, or CAFOs. Duplin County’s 60,000 residents, living at the center of the fight against industrial agriculture, are sharing their land with 18.5 million confined animals.Wiith millions of animals come tons of waste — more waste than an ecosystem can take. The region’s shallow waters, frequent precipitation and extreme weather make it especially susceptible to contamination from CAFOs. The only solution that the industry has come up with is to dump bodily fluids filled with pathogens, antibiotics and harmful nutrients into human-made lagoons.When the lagoons become full, the contents are liquefied and sprayed onto nearby land, including residents’ homes. Waste capable of filling some 15,000 Olympic pools is sprayed each year, causing hypertension, nausea, asthma, anxiety, stress and disruption to residents’ daily lives. They report they cannot even leave their homes or open their windows due to the stench that hangs in the air.When the residents do speak out, they are met with threats, intimidation, job loss, violence and racism. The state’s Black residents are 1.54 times more likely to live within three miles of a CAFO than white residents, while Latinx residents are 1.39 times and Native residents are 2.18 times more likely. This leads to the conclusion that these acts by the meat industry are nothing less than environmental racism.Residents have been in a decades-long battle to save their lands from CAFOs, but the meat industry refuses to pay for existing technology that would convert methane from waste into sustainable energy. Only 10 of the 6,500 farms in the state are voluntarily using the technology.Numerous solutions to the contamination have been proposed, but all are deemed too expensive for the U.S. meat industry generating $864.2 billion annually. In March, industry-bankrolled politicians passed a bill (HB 467) by override capping the amount of damages residents can seek when the value of their homes and land decrease due to their proximity to a CAFO or forestry operation.Meat production is responsible for more water pollution than all other industries combined, and its contributions to climate change are numerous. The longterm effects of meat farming on the region’s ecosystem will disproportionately affect poor people in North Carolina. The wetlands where some live are eroding at the rate of 800 acres per year and, along with that, the culture that connects them.Many residents remember 1999’s Hurricane Floyd and the images of thousands of pig carcasses floating in the flood waters of the coastal plains. Nearly 20 years later, not much has changed. Last September, hog farm flooding caused by Hurricane Matthew brought a stark reminder to state residents that corporate profits continue to take priority over human life.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Ukraine expels three foreign journalists in past week

first_img Crimean journalist “confesses” to spying for Ukraine on Russian TV August 31, 2017 – Updated on September 1, 2017 Ukraine expels three foreign journalists in past week UkraineEurope – Central Asia Condemning abuses Armed conflictsFreedom of expressionCouncil of Europe Receive email alerts March 26, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Reporters Without Borders (RSF) urges the Ukrainian authorities to end their vetting of the foreign media after they detained and expelled three foreign reporters – one Russian and two Spanish – without any judicial proceedings in the past week.Читать по-русски в PDF / Read in Russian“Arresting and expelling journalists is not a good response to the information war, especially in the absence of a detailed explanation and without an appeal mechanism,” said Johann Bihr, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk.“No matter how questionable some reporting may be, there is no justification for such media freedom violations, which furthermore just provide the Russian propaganda machine with ammunition.”The latest victim was Anna Kurbatova, a reporter for the partially state-owned Russian TV channel Pervy Kanal, who was arrested in Kiev yesterday.Olena Gitlyanska, a spokesperson for the State Security Service (SBU), announced a few hours later that Kurbatova had been deported and banned from returning to Ukraine for three years for “harming national interests.” She added: “Anyone who dares to defame Ukraine will suffer the same fate.”In her latest report, about Ukraine’s independence day celebrations, Kurbatova suggested that Ukraine was now heavily dependent on the West and that everything had been going downhill since the Maidan revolution in 2014.Spanish journalists Antonio Pampliega and Manuel Ángel Sastre were expelled on 25 August after being detained on arrival at Kiev international airport and held there for 20 hours.The SBU said they had been banned from entering Ukraine for three years because of their coverage of the fighting in the east of the country,in particular their claims that Ukrainian government forces had shelled civilians.Pampliega and Sastre were previously on a list of personae non gratae issued by the government in 2015, but had been removed from the list as a result of civil society pressure.Ukraine is ranked 102nd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.

PUSD High Exit Exam Results Remain Steady

Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. The percentage of 10th grade students from the Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD) meeting the California High School Exit Examination (CAHSEE) graduation requirement held steady at 82 percent in both English Language Arts (ELA) and mathematics in 2012 according to results released today by the California Department of Education (CDE). PUSD’s passage rate on the exam has risen from 72 percent in 2008.The CAHSEE is administered each year to ensure that students who graduate from public high schools demonstrate competency in reading, writing and mathematics. Students who do not pass one or both parts of the CAHSEE in grade 10 have two opportunities in grade 11 and up to five opportunities ingrade 12 to pass the exam and do not have to retake the part of the exam that they already passed. Students can keep taking the CAHSEE for two years after they complete all other graduation requirements. Only 12 of the 1176 students who met all of PUSD’s graduation requirements did not pass one or both parts of the CAHSEE exam.“An 82 percent passage rate by PUSD 10th graders on both parts of the exam shows that the academically rigorous reforms in our schools are working,” said Gundry. “Our challenge now is to make sure that students who did not pass one or both parts of the exam receive the help needed to master the subject areas tested. We also cannot ignore the widening achievement gap among first-time CAHSEE test takers in PUSD and throughout Los Angeles County. Despite funding challenges, we must work smarter and harder than ever to correct this.”The results show steady passage rates overall with the exception being an increase in the passage rate of white students (a seven percent increase in ELA and a five percent increase in math) and a decrease in the passage rate of African-American students (a four percent decrease in ELA and a six percent decrease in math). It is important to note that because of small sample sizes in some subgroups there can be volatility in the percentages from year to year. For most subgroups, PUSD continues to be on par with county and state wide data.In PUSD, 1052 10th grade students passed the ELA portion of the test and 1040 10th grade students passed the mathematics portion of the exam. Tenth grade scores are used as a benchmark because it is the first opportunity students have to take the test and offers the best comparison from year to year.For PUSD data, click here. For local, county and state CAHSEE reports, including how to understand the results, visit the California Department of Education’s website at www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/hs/.The 2012 Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) datawill be released by CDE on August. 31.
