Although I expect this could continue over the short term, in the long run, I think cheap FTSE 100 stocks offer a better, and much safer, prospect of wealth creation.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…When share prices are especially volatile, it can be easy to start doubting the stock market’s ability to bring long-term capital growth. But don’t lose heart, the market always recovers and more often than not, rebounds to make new highs.The appeal of cryptocurrenciesMuch of the attention that virtual currencies receive is around their supposed ability to make you money quickly. I’m sure you’ve heard the stories of people becoming millionaires practically overnight from their savvy investments in Bitcoin.Though this is entirely possible, it’s also true that you could lose that money just as quickly as you gained it. Exponential increases and decreases in the span of just weeks or months are a regular occurrence in crypto markets.A quick glance at Bitcoin’s price chart illustrates this strikingly. The volatile swings upwards and downwards demonstrate a price that is purely based on investor sentiment, rather than any form of intrinsic value.Truth be told, it’s impossible to determine Bitcoin’s prospects. In my view, its potential to replace traditional currencies seems low. To ever be used on a large scale, an overhaul of monetary systems around the world would be required.Ultimately, spending money on a speculative asset doesn’t appeal to me. I think there are better ways to get rich and retire early.Cheap FTSE 100 shares  Speaking of which, I think investing in cheap FTSE 100 shares offers the prospect of financial freedom over time.The stock market sell-off has left many FTSE 100 shares trading below their historic average valuations. As well as indicating a wide margin of safety, I think this presents an ideal opportunity for investors to grab a few bargains.In my eyes, there’s a large amount of choice regarding cheap FTSE 100 shares at the moment. Personally, I’m keeping my eye on a handful stocks. These include Taylor Wimpey, Imperial Brands Group, Unilever, Aviva, and Royal Dutch Shell.Opportunities to buy cheap shares are usually few and far between for investors. The last time a sell-off happened on a similar scale was during the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis. With that in mind, I wouldn’t pass up on the offer of buying bargain shares today.Hold for the long termOnce you’ve cashed in on some cheap FTSE 100 shares, I recommend holding them for the long term. Investors who do so almost always fare better than investors who try to time the market and make a quick sale.Moreover, riding out the temporary market downswings usually generates better returns over the long run. Remember, selling low crystallises a loss. Whereas, holding for the long term allows time for the market to recover and for your investments to bounce back.Ultimately, I think buying cheap FTSE 100 shares and holding them for the long term is a superior way of boosting your chances of getting rich and retiring early. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors.center_img Penny stocks are the Wild West of investing. For every company that goes on to multi-bag in value, there are many more that either go nowhere or fail completely. As a result, I only have a portion of my money invested in this part of the market. Here, however, are some of the things I’m looking for.Penny stocks: What’s on my radarPerhaps the most important is the company’s financial position. A penny stock that’s already swimming in debt is one to avoid, unless it has significant assets to offset this. A struggling firm will usually need to tap its owners for more cash by offering shares on the cheap. By contrast, a company with net cash on its balance sheet should have the firepower to weather a few inevitable storms.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…A second thing I look for is a reason (or reasons) why the shares might be ready to rise in value. As much as I invest for the long term, I don’t want to be in a stock that has little chance of growing revenue and profits. The opportunity cost of not investing elsewhere is simply too great. I therefore take a look at recent announcements to gauge whether it could be about to sprint ahead of the competition. Third, I look for evidence of volume. In other words, I need to see that the shares are changing hands (aka liquidity). Should this be the case, I can be more confident of being able to sell my holding when I want/need to. A lack of interest in certain penny stocks could make it difficult to shift them for the price I want.  Another thing I look for is the number of shares owned by directors. If someone helping to manage the firm isn’t confident enough to invest their own money, why should I? Having a healthy slab of shares sends a message to would-be buyers that their interests are aligned with shareholders.A final, more general point I consider when selecting penny stocks is to look across the entire market. Focusing on one sector, such as mining or biotech, is just too dangerous.  An alternative strategyAn alternative to buying individual high-risk, high-reward penny stocks is to buy a fund specialising in this part of the market. Sure, not every holding will actually have shares trading for pennies rather than pounds, but this isn’t the point. The objective here is to diversify risk through buying a basket of stocks. The eventual return might not be as great but investing this way does allow me to sleep at night. Positively, there’s no shortage of active funds to select from. Like penny stocks however, the performance varies wildly. This is why it’s important to scrutinise the track records of those managing investors’ money. We’re talking evidence of consistent returns over five years or more here, not one or two months.I currently have a number of such funds in my portfolio. These include the Liontrust UK Micro-Cap Fund and the Marlborough UK Micro-Cap Growth. Penny stocks in the former include Totally and Eckoh. The latter includes companies like Jubilee Metals.Although there’s no guarantee that returns to date will continue, I’m content to keep my money invested here for the long term.

Social enterprise to offer employment opportunities to Scottish veterans

She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. A factory offering job opportunities specifically for Scottish veterans is to open next June.The largest employment development specifically for Scottish veterans in decades, Scotland’s Bravest Manufacturing Company (SBMC) will open at veterans’ charity Erskine’s headquarters and is headed by Royal British Legion Industries.The factory will produce rail and road signs, recycle wooden products, and provide print & mail and fulfilment services, and will offer opportunities ranging from short to long-term, part-time and full-time roles, all tailored to the specific needs of each veteran. As a not-for profit enterprise, it will also immediately reinvest 100% of its surplus back into the company.SBMC is projected to help more than 40 of the country’s ex-servicemen and women every year through direct, flexible employment, while also offering vital tailored wrap-around welfare support and accommodation in collaboration with Erskine.The development is a direct response to a 2015 study into the employment support needs of Scottish veterans, which found that ex-service personnel are more than twice as likely to be unemployed as civilians across the country.Erskine, which is currently extending the services it provides, is planning to support the veterans employed by SBMC by providing access to community social facilities and accommodation adjacent to the factory on its estate at Bishopton.Steve Sherry CMG OBE, chief executive of Royal British Legion Industries, said:“We know from extensive stakeholder engagement that there is an immense hunger within the military communities of Glasgow and the surrounding areas for skill-based employability initiatives for veterans.”“SBMC will be based on a tried and tested, commercially competitive but also socially proactive business model, ensuring a positive and rewarding environment for the Scottish veterans who will work in the factory.”  121 total views,  1 views today Advertisement Tagged with: Scotland social enterprise AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis4last_img read more

Governor cleared in rights violation case in appalling outcome for press freedom and human rights

first_imgNews NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say May 5, 2021 Find out more MexicoAmericas RSF_en Organisation Help by sharing this information 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies Reports to go further April 28, 2021 Find out morecenter_img Follow the news on Mexico Reporter murdered in northwestern Mexico’s Sonora state Receive email alerts News Reporters Without Borders today voiced deep dismay after Mexico’s Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation (SCJN) ruled narrowly that there was “no serious violation of the individual rights” of freelance journalist Lydia Cacho when she was arrested and held in December 2005 on the orders of governor of Pueblo state, Mario Marín.Cacho brought out a book in 2004, entitled Demons in Eden, in which she accused politicians and businessmen of participation in a paedophile network. “Lydia was the target of constant threats, attacks, and murder attempts culminating in a brief detention in 2005, ever since her 2004 exposure of the existence of a paedophile network implicating top-level figures,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said.“The SCJN has given a real boost to impunity by clearing the governor of Puebla, Mario Marín, on this point, despite overwhelming evidence and daring to say, against all the evidence, that Lydia Cacho’s constitutional rights had not been trampled on,” said the organisation.“The epilogue of this serious case constitutes a disturbing precedent for press freedom and human rights in Mexico”.“The court’s decision is a defeat for Mexican journalists who inform the public and investigate case linked to human-trafficking. The judges are sending a message to the country that cases of this kind will not even be brought before the courts,” said Cacho after hearing the outcome of the case.The judges on the SCJN voted six to four that the “existence of a serious violation of individual rights under Article 97 of the Constitution had not been demonstrated”. They said that Cacho was the victim of “minor irregularities” during her arrest and transfer from Quintana Roo State in eastern Mexico where she lives to Puebla state, where Mario Marín is the governor. The high court thus yesterday threw out all the charges against the governor.Recordings of telephone conversations revealed by the daily La Jornada and broadcast on W Radio, on 14 February 2006 – of which Reporters Without Borders obtained a copy – between the governor of Puebla and businessman Kamel Nacif, who was cited in the paedophile case, appeared to prove the implication of the two men in the arrest of Cacho.The governor and the company boss apparently suggested “jokingly” that the journalist should be raped during the transfer. The SCJN ruled that the recordings were not convincing. This decision goes against the report submitted to the court by Judge Juan Silva Meza on 26 November, in which he said he believed that there was “an agreement between the authorities of Puebla and Quintana Roo to violate journalist Lydia Cacho’s individual rights.”The governor, the prosecutor general, the president of the Puebla higher court, four judges and several government officials were all accused in the report.

Lockdown: Delhi HC Directs Trial Courts To Not Insist The Bail Applicant For Filing Signed/Attested Documents When The Applicant’s Family Resides Outside Delhi [Read Order]

The Single Bench of Justice Asha Menon further ordered that the physically signed and attested vakalatanama of a person, who is in custody or not residing in Delhi will not be insisted upon by the Facilitation Centre in any of the District Courts in Delhi and nor will bail applications be not accepted only for this reason. In the present matter, the online filing of bail application was rejected by the Facilitation Centre of Dwarka Courts on two grounds, namely, that the Vakalatnama was not duly signed and attested either by the accused himself or his family members, and secondly, that the application was neither bookmarked nor in searchable format. The Petitioner submitted that despite explaining the difficulty in getting an attested/signed Vakalatnama, as the counsel resided in Gurugram and the family of the applicant resided in Ghaziabad and the borders were sealed, the online filing was rejected. It was also argued by her Petitioner that it is impossible for a person to physically sign the Certificate when he’s in judicial custody. Appearing for the state, Mr Rahul Mehra submitted that the District Courts be directed to follow the practice of the High Court of Delhi even in respect of the filing of Vakalatnamas as these guidelines by the High Court were intended to facilitate litigants and lawyers in these extraordinary times. After taking into consideration the procedure followed by different trial courts for e-filing and filing of the Vakalatnama, the court observed that case presents peculiar facts which ought to have been handled by the Facilitation Centre, Dwarka Courts with greater sensitivity. The court said: ‘The concern of the District Courts of preventing unauthorized filing of bail applications seems to be rather misplaced, for a bail application is moved for the benefit of a person who is in jail. At the worst, if the bail application is rejected, no court would bar the filing of a fresh bail application with proper justification and the concerned court would again dispose it of as per law’. The court further observed that when the peculiar circumstances of this case were brought to the notice of the Facilitation Centre, Dwarka Courts, a further undertaking could have been taken through the advocate that not only would the duly signed, verified and attested petition/application be filed in original, but a duly signed Vakalatnama would also be filed within two weeks of the withdrawal of the lockdown. Therefore, the court directed the Facilitation Centre, Dwarka Courts, through the District Judge, South-West, Dwarka Courts to forthwith accept the bail application with an undertaking by the counsel to file the Vakalatnama duly signed within two weeks of the withdrawal of the lockdown. The bail application should be listed before the Duty Sessions Judge without further delay. While noting that instead of physical signing of the Certificate, an email mentioning the appointing of the counsel and an undertaking to sign all documents within two weeks of lifting of the lockdown would suffice, the court highlighted that Aadhaar number and phone/mobile number should also be recorded in such email/authority letter. Such emails, the court directed, should be accepted without insistence on signatures, as it may not be possible for everyone to append their digital signatures or send the scanned copy.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Storylast_img read more

The petitioner before Justice Raj Mohan Singh had assailed the order dated 13.10.2018 passed by a Sub-Divisional Judicial Magistrate in a FIR registered under Section 409 IPC. A perusal of the record showed that the Police investigated the offence and filed a cancellation report. Notice was given to the complainant, and on appearance, the complainant showed his dissatisfaction with the cancellation report submitted by the Investigating Agency. The complainant alleged that theInvestigating Agency has not considered the material aspects of the case while submitting the cancellation report. The Complainant prayed for further investigation in view of the inquiry report. The concerned Sub-Divisional Judicial Magistrate, vide order dated 13.10.2018 rejected the cancellation report and sent the case for further investigation with specific direction to the Police to deal with the inquiry report in detail and to give findings thereof. Before the HC, the counsel for the petitioner submitted that the impugned order is totally non-speaking as the Court did not give reasons as to why the complainant was not satisfied. The State counsel submitted that the Police had already prepared the cancellation report in favour of the petitioner after due investigation of the case. “The complainant being an interested party would obviously not be satisfied with the cancellation report”, ruled the Single Judge. The bench further held that the recital in the impugned order dated 13.10.2018 that the complainant was not satisfied, “in my considered view”, cannot be the sole ground to discard the cancellation report as the Sub-Divisional Judicial Magistrate has not elaborated the reasons of dissatisfaction of the complainant except to allege that the Police did not consider the material aspects of inquiry report conducted by the Additional Director General of Police (Jails) Punjab, Chandigarh in favour of the petitioner. Setting aside the impugned order, the bench directed the Sub-Divisional Judicial Magistrate, to revisit the issue and pass a fresh order in accordance with law.

After court order, FEMA allows Hurricane Maria survivors to stay in hotels 5 additional days

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico) — A federal judge has approved a temporary restraining order that allows the nearly 1,800 Puerto Rican survivors of Hurricane Maria to stay in temporary housing for another four days.Following the order, the Federal Emergency Management Agency added a fifth day of housing.The FEMA-funded Transitional Sheltering Assistance for 1,744 Maria victims was set to end at checkout time Sunday. U.S. District Judge Leo Sorokin ruled that the program will continue until at least midnight July 3, 2018, enabling people to stay until checkout time on July 4, 2018.Sorokin cited the potential for “irreparable harm” for victims who would be left homeless. He added the “specter of many sick individuals without homes of their own being rendered homeless with the resulting drain on other public resources in addition to the possible human consequences.” In a statement, William Booher, FEMA’s public affairs director, said the agency is working to notify hotels that the TSA program has been extended until July 5.Some 7,030 families have benefited from the program since Oct. 30, 2017, according to the agency. The program has been extended numerous times after Hurricanes Irma and Maria hit on Sept. 7 and Sept. 20, 2017, respectively. The agency also said that the Transportation Assistance to get Maria survivors from the U.S. mainland back to Puerto Rico has been extended for another 60 days. Displaced people will now have until August 30 to have FEMA cover the cost of airfare, luggage and pet fees to return home.Ariana Colon, who is pregnant and living with her boyfriend and 1-year-old child in a Central Florida hotel room, told WFTV that she is among those who were affected following Maria.“We came here because of the situation that pushed us to come here with nothing but maybe a suitcase with some clothes and that’s it,” Colon said.U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., and six other senators Thursday wrote a letter to FEMA Administrator Brock Long, urging him to extend the deadline.“Given the continuing housing needs of displaced individuals and families after Hurricane Maria, we urge you to grant a sixty-day extension of the TSA program,” the senators wrote.The Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority reported that 2,344 customers are still without power after Hurricane Maria, continuing the longest blackout in U.S. history.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
