The ONS cited changes in the application of VAT to aircrafts as a possible cause behind a surge in imports.“Aircraft imports rose by £0.7bn in value terms, accounting for more than half of the £1.1bn rise in overall goods imports,” noted Vicky Redwood of Capital Economics.Overall, the deficit in goods and services rose to £4.8bn – from £3.9bn in November – while exports, excluding oil and erratic items, were down 1.3 per cent. Yet, the outlook for UK exports is bright, said Andrew Goodwin of the Ernst and Young Item Club. “There is evidence of strength across the world, but the main impetus is coming from emerging markets,” he said. “Exports of goods to China rose by 41 per cent in 2010.” More From Our Partners Russell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.org980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.com‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.com‘The Love Boat’ captain Gavin MacLeod dies at 90nypost.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.com whatsapplast_img read more

Forget the Cash ISA! I’d buy Vodafone shares to get rich

Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. The best easy access Cash ISA on the market at the moment offers an interest rate of 0.9%. Vodafone (LSE: VOD) shares, on the other hand, currently support a dividend yield of more than 6%.However, buying a company just because it has a high dividend yield is not usually a sound investment strategy. Sometimes a high yield can be the mark of a company in distress.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…But on this occasion, Vodafone shares seem to have all the qualities of a top income stock, I feel.Vodafone shares on offerShares in the global communications giant have fallen around 20% this year. It’s easy to see why investor sentiment towards the business has deteriorated over the past few months.The coronavirus crisis has disrupted almost every business on the planet, including Vodafone. Investors have decided to sell and move on rather than wait around and see what happens next.Nonetheless, while Vodafone has not been able to escape the crisis entirely, it’s come out better than most. The company’s telecommunications network has been a vital lifeline for many throughout the crisis. As such, the majority of the group’s operations have been able to continue to operate through lockdowns.This performance suggests that the market has overreacted. Vodafone shares have underperformed the FTSE 100 this year, even though the underlying business has outperformed the rest of the economy.As such, now could be a great time to snap up a share of this business. Considering the performance of the group’s underlying business compared to its share price, the stock appears to be undervalued at current levels. Therefore, buying the stock today may lead to high capital returns in the years ahead.Attractive incomeAt the same time, the level of income offered by Vodafone shares looks highly attractive in the current interest rate environment. The company slashed its dividend by 40% last year to bolster its balance sheet. Luckily, it doesn’t look as if management will do the same this year.The company’s decision to act quickly last year, as well as its international diversification and roadmap for reducing debt, all suggest that it is more financially stable than many other income stocks in the FTSE 100.Even if the company comes out with yet another 40% dividend reduction later this year, the yield would still stand at 3.5%. That’s more than three times higher than the best Cash ISA rate on the market at the moment.Of course, buying Vodafone shares today does not guarantee high returns in the years ahead. There are many risks that could hold back the group’s growth in the near term. A second wave of coronavirus or prolonged economic downturn may hinder the company’s plans to return to growth.Still, over the long term, the group’s position in the European telecoms market, international diversification and size may help it produce substantial total returns for shareholders when owned as part of a diversified portfolio.

1 reopening stock to buy now that I think has flown under the radar

Jonathan Smith | Wednesday, 5th May, 2021 | More on: GRI As the UK economy starts to reopen, it’s be good news for many companies. However, some will clearly benefit more than others. There has been a lot of coverage of the benefits to retailers and those in the tourist industry. Yet I think one FTSE 250 stock has gone under the radar here. Grainger (LSE:GRI), is the UK’s largest residential landlord. As a stock, I think it’s worth considering buying it now as rental demand picks up into the summer and beyond.Better than expected rental demandBeing a residential landlord is something that my friends tell me can be quite a headache. Yet Grainger does this at a very large level, having investment properties worth £1.7bn around the UK. 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…Given the impact of the pandemic, I would have expected a negative impact both tangibly from lower rental demand and also intangibly from property valuation.It’s no surprise to me that the Grainger share price was not a top stock to buy early in 2020. When the stock market crash hit, the share price fell from circa 338p to 229p, a fall of over 30%.The 2020 results don’t actually cover over the full impact of the pandemic. The financial year runs September-to-September, meaning that the 2020 figures benefited from having a period of normality before the eye of the storm hit. Nevertheless, revenue did fall 4%, with the net valuation of rental property taking a large hit.Rental income managed to grow versus 2019, something I put down to the 612 new rental homes launched. Ultimately, bottom line profit before tax fell by 16%.A reopening stock to buy now?The resilience in its rental income has led me to think that Grainger could perform even more strongly in more normal times than I initially thought. Periods of economic growth are usually associated with high demand for rental property. The bounce-back in the UK economy this summer should support higher occupancy rates for the business.It also should help the valuation of the property portfolio to increase. As Grainger owns a sizeable amount of property, the higher valuation on the balance sheet for 2021 would be an added bonus.I’m glad the stock is on my radar to buy now, but I will be waiting for the six-month interim results to come out next week before investing. I think this will be key to see how business has been through the last lockdown. In a trading update in February, rent collection stood at 98%, so signs are promising.One risk to buying this stock now though is the negative impact of the surge in first-time buyers. The cut to stamp duty has seen a large amount of people get onto the property ladder over the past six months. More buyers mean less rental demand.Yet barring any disasters in the results next week, I’ll be looking to add Grainger to my portfolio.center_img Enter Your Email Address 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.

The International Action Center and Fight Imperialism, Stand Together (FIST), a youth organization that had scheduled a regional conference here on March 2, called the action, which other anti-imperialists joined.The protesters held a picket line and speakout, chanting: “Money for jobs, not fascist mobs!” “U.S., CIA, out of Ukraine!” and “Chávez presente, Maduro presidente!” Speakers at the rally emphasized the importance of immediately taking a strong stand against the new wave of U.S./EU imperialist aggression.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Malaysia

first_img Help by sharing this information March 12, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Malaysia News January 29, 2021 Find out more News For the time-being, there is no network censorship on the Malaysian agenda, but bloggers and online journalists are being harassed and the authorities are producing a proliferation of statements about their distrust of the new media.Credibility : The new media’s prerogativeNews websites and blogs have flourished as an alternative to the state-controlled traditional media. The new media have acquired genuine credibility and, keeping pace with their growth, a high-quality online journalism broaching important subjects has emerged on such sites as NutGraph, Malaysian Insider and Malaysiakini and on blogs like Articulations, Zorro Unmasked, People’s Parliament and Malaysia Today.The opposition was quick to permeate the new media, but the government and ruling party also followed the movement. The Barisan Nasional Party has organized a special unit responsible for disseminating ideas on the Net. The Internet created new opportunities for all political actors, and not just for parties. By allowing them to reach a heterogeneous audience, it is challenging traditional censorship barriers. However, the authorities have been producing an increasing number of statements calling into question the new media’s legitimacy.Harassed bloggers and websitesThe regime is, indeed, showing a certain degree of exasperation toward bloggers and independent websites. It sometimes yields to the temptation of prosecuting them by using the legal weapons at its disposal. Some twenty-odd laws can be deployed to censor the media and the Internet. Most often enforced against netizens is the Internal Security Act (ISA), which allows them to keep an individual in custody for two years without a trial, the 1984 Press Law and publications, the Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Act of 1998, and the Sedition Act. The latter penalizes any expression likely to incite hatred or disaffection with regard to Malaysian authorities or between “races” and social classes, changing the established order, or challenging any sovereign right or privilege. Any person found guilty faces a potential prison term of up to five years and a fine of MYR 5,000 (about USD 1,475).The Malaysiakini site is being investigated by the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission for posting videos that authorities deemed shocking, but which, according to the site’s chief editor, merely constituted coverage of events of general public interest, in this case demonstrations. Malaysiakini is extremely popular, with 37 million pages seen per month by 1.6 million single visitors.Blogger Raja Petra Kamaruddin, better known by his acronym RPK, who is the director of the news site Malaysia Today, is the victim of a genuine judicial harassment campaign. He is the pet peeve of the authorities, whose acts of corruption he has denounced numerous times. He stands accused of sedition after having implied that the Prime Minister and his wife might be involved in the murder of a Mongolian interpreter within the scope of an explosive case concerning politics and arms sales. The authorities are now threatening to withdraw his Malaysian citizenship and to issue an international arrest warrant against him. In November 2009, the court had “suspended” his trial by granting him a discharge because he could not be located. But the accusations remain intact and he can be arrested again at any time.Another blogger, Khairul Nizam Abdul Ghani, was accused of insulting the monarchy and should be tried by the end of March 2010. This freelance computer technician had posted on his blog, www.adukataruna.blogspot.com, critical comments about Sultan Iskandar Ismail of the state of Johor, who died this past January. He could be given a sentence of up to one year and pay a fine, even though he apologized and withdrew the incriminating article from his blog.In March 2009, eight Internet users were prosecuted for insulting the Sultan of the state of Perak, which was undergoing a political crisis. One of them, Internet user Azrin Mohd Zain, was sentenced to pay a fine of MYR 10,000 (about USD 2,950) by virtue of the Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Act of 1998. The seven others are awaiting trial.Lawyer P. Uthayakumar, and a member of the Hindu Rights Action Force (HRAF), detained since December 2007 in the name of the Internal Security Act (ISA), was released in May 2009. The authorities accused him of having published on his Internet website (http://www.policewatchmalaysia.com), a letter to the British Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, asking him to support the adoption of a UN Security Council resolution condemning the “atrocities and persecutions” perpetrated by the Malaysian government against the Hindu minority and to refer the case for trial to the International Criminal Court.No censorship on the agenda?The Malaysian Minister of Culture and Communication’s proposal to install a Web filtering software system was rejected by the government in August 2009 after demonstrations protesting against this initiative. The Minister considered using, for example, the “Green Dam filtering software program” used by the Chinese, under the pretext that it was necessary to “maintain racial harmony in a multicultural nation.”In the last few months, the authorities have reiterated the promise made in 1996, during the launching of the Multimedia Super Corridor – a special economic and technological zone – not to censor the Internet. Notably in a letter sent to Reporters Without Borders in June 2009, they further explained that censorship was not on the table. But at the same time they warned citizens about engaging in “immoral online activities,” they also advised them to allow themselves to be “guided by their cultural and moral values” in cyberspace. to go further Organisation MalaysiaAsia – Pacific Receive email alerts MalaysiaAsia – Pacific center_img News Follow the news on Malaysia March 17, 2021 Find out more RSF_en News February 22, 2021 Find out more New Malaysian ordinance threatens very concept of truth Malaysian cartoonist Zunar facing possible sedition charge again Record fine for Malaysian news site over readers’ commentslast_img read more

When the whistleblower contacted Greenwald in 2011, the latter was reluctant to use secure encrypted communications. Snowden turned to Poitras, who was familiar with such techniques. It’s easy to see why. The US authorities had had their sights on the film-maker ever since she made the Oscar-nominated documentary “My Country, My Country” about the war in Iraq in 2006. Whenever she travels, her air ticket is marked SSSS, which stands for “Secondary Security Screening Selection”. This means she is on a watch list and is subjected to extensive questioning when she returns from abroad. She has been questioned more than 40 times and her computer equipment is regularly seized and inspected. She has never been given a reason for this harassment. Poitras now lives in Berlin where she continues her work with Greenwald on the surveillance practices of the NSA. She has received numerous honours and awards for her documentary work.

Required fields are marked * Huntington Memorial Hospital announced today that it has become the first hospital in Southern California – and only the third in the 11 western states — to offer a powerful new technology that enables people with lower-extremity paralysis or weakness to stand and walk.“What we are witnessing is truly the best of what science, engineering and medicine have to offer,” said Sunil Hegde, M.D, medical director of the hospital’s Outpatient Rehabilitation Center. “Together we are helping people rethink current physical limitations and achieve the remarkable.”Patients are able to walk with the assistance of Eksoâ„¢, a ready-to-wear, battery-powered bionic suit – or exoskeleton – that is strapped over the user’s clothing. With the patient providing the balance and proper body positioning, Ekso allows patients to walk while a physical therapist uses the control pad to program the desired walking parameters, such as step length and speed, as well as control when the Ekso stands, sits, and takes a step. It is powered by two high-capacity lithium batteries which drive the hip and knee motors.“With the aid of the Ekso remote control, one of our physical therapists helps teach the patient when to take a step, how to position their body for proper balance, and how to shift their weight in preparation to take another step,” said Dr. Hedge. “The physical therapist also has the ability to modify the walking pattern — step speed and length — as the patient progresses.”Ekso can be adjusted to fit most people between 5’2” and 6’2” who weigh 220 pounds or less. The user needs arm function and adequate upper extremity strength to manage crutches or a walker. An experienced user can transfer to/from their wheelchair and put on or off the Ekso in less than five minutes. The torso and leg straps are designed to enable the user/patient to easily get in and out of the device with none or minimal assistance. The learning curve is user specific and usually individuals begin using a walker and progress to crutches.The addition of the Ekso technology to Huntington Hospital’s Outpatient Rehabilitation Center was made possible through the generosity of a challenge gift from donors Carol & Harry Tsao and Renata & Talmadge O’Neill. They made their donation in honor of their families’ philanthropic legacies. Tsao and Talmadge are co-founders of Mezi Media and are investors in Ekso Bionics.So as to encourage other people to support these much-needed services, Tsao and Talmadge have agreed to match dollar for dollar other community donations to the hospital’s Neuroscience Program. “We are deeply grateful to these wonderful families for their support of important and life-changing care within our walls,” said Dr. Hedge.“While this technology is currently used only in rehabilitation centers, we join with Ekso in looking forward to the day when people will be able to utilize this technology on the sidewalks or in shopping malls,” said Dr. Hedge. “Since the robotic suit is self-contained robotic and not tethered to a power supply, why not dream big?”Currently, 18 medical centers in the United States and two in Europe offer the Ekso exoskeleton devise. Its manufacturer, Ekso Bionics, is headquartered in Richmond, California with offices in London, UK. Further information may be obtained at www.eksobionics.comHuntington Memorial Hospital is a 625-bed not-for-profit hospital that is home to the only Level II Trauma Center in the San Gabriel Valley. In addition to being granted Magnet® status in 2011, Huntington Hospital has been ranked nationally by U.S. News and World Report in two specialties and was named the 8th best hospital in California. Renowned for its programs in neurosciences, cardiovascular services and cancer care, Huntington Hospital is an active teaching hospital with graduate medical education programs in internal medicine and general surgery.
