Risks such as a second wave of coronavirus and increased tensions between the US and China could weigh on company profits and investor sentiment over the coming months.Despite this, now could be the right time to start buying a diverse range of high-quality businesses. By taking a long-term view of your investments and ignoring market ‘noise’ you could generate high returns that increase your chances of making a million.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…High-quality businessesWith unemployment on the rise and GDP forecasts downgraded, the economic outlook has deteriorated as the same time as the market crash. Therefore, owning shares that have solid balance sheets, wide economic moats and sound strategies could be highly advantageous.They may stand a better chance of surviving what could be a major recession. They could even go on to produce higher profitability in the long run by taking market share from their weaker peers.Identifying high-quality businesses can be undertaken by any investor. Look at a company’s annual report and assess factors such as its debt levels, customer loyalty and track record of financial stability. Doing so  could help you focus your capital on those businesses that have the most attractive risk/reward opportunities at the present time.Diversification in a market crashDiversification is often viewed as a means of reducing losses in a market crash, rather than improving your gains. However, the two go hand-in-hand. Less reliance on a smaller number of companies could improve your returns should they experience financial difficulties.Diversifying across numerous sectors also enables you to benefit from high returns in a variety of industries you may not necessarily have otherwise invested in. This could be especially advantageous in a period where it’s difficult to know which industries will recover quickly. And also which sectors will struggle to return to their pre-coronavirus levels of growth.Since the cost of sharedealing has fallen significantly over recent years, diversification is available to almost all investors. It could be a simple but effective means of improving your chances of making a million.Ignoring other investorsInvestor sentiment has changed since the FTSE 100’s market crash in March. Now, many investors are bullish about the stock market’s prospects. However, that can quickly change if share prices experience a sudden downturn.Therefore, it could be a good idea to ignore the views of other investors over the coming months. Due to the unprecedented situation involving coronavirus, it’s exceptionally difficult to predict the short-term movements of the stock market.However, the FTSE 100’s track record shows that a recovery in the coming years is highly likely. This could mean buying stocks during a market crash is a sound means of boosting your chances of generating a seven-figure portfolio.

Hotshots – Alex Glashan (Edinburgh)

first_imgGlashan has the tools to go all the way to the top of the game.Gavin MortimerThis article appeared in the March 2011 issue of Rugby World Magazine TAGS: Edinburgh Rugby Alex Glashan with All Black Sonny Bill WilliamsAlex Glashan announced himself to the rugby world with a Man of the Match performance in March 2009 as his Edinburgh Academy side beat George Watson’s College in the final of the Scottish Schools U15 Cup at Murrayfield.Since then the 17-year-old scrum-half’s rise has been as steady as one of his passes, and Scotland U18 head coach Grant McKelvey believes Glashan is destined for great things. “He fits the mould of the modern No 9,” says McKelvey. “He’s tall and has the pace of a wing, an excellent breaking game and a good kicking game.”Glashan is involved in the Scottish Academy programme, a facet of which is to align young talent with an established professional player in the same position. Glashan has Mike Blair, also a product of Edinburgh Academy, as his ‘mentor’ and the two have spent time working on the youngster’s game. Blair is also accessible on email should Glashan wish to pick his brains.The teenager toured Spain last summer with McKelvey’s U18 squad and the coach envisages Glashan featuring prominently in this year’s U18 Six Nations. “Despite being a year young he coped well in Spain. I’ve no doubt he’ll be able to cope with playing the likes of England U18 and the French,” he says.“One of Alex’s strengths is his character; he’s very self-aware and works hard to improve all areas of his game. Every task we’ve set Alex he’s completed to a high standard. He has a maturity beyond his years.”RUGBY WORLD VERDICT LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Do you want to buy the issue of Rugby World in which this article appeared?

Pentagon intervention in Africa grows

first_imgDevelopments in Central and East Africa have dominated news coverage of Africa since December. The split within the ruling Sudan People’s Liberation Movement/Army (SPLM/A), a close ally of Washington, and the deployment of French and African troops in the Central African Republic have led to an escalation of Pentagon involvement in these states.The U.S. Defense Department has announced the formation of an East African Response Force (EARF). This new unit is part of the U.S. Africa Command (Africom), which has been strengthened under President Barack Obama.A recent drone attack in southern Somalia is representative of the growing aggression of Washington in Africa. The government of Djibouti, a former French colony where the U.S. has over 4,000 soldiers at Camp Lemonnier, released a statement saying that such strikes are “vital” in the so-called “war on terrorism.” The drone strike was launched from a Pentagon military installation in Djibouti.Prior to the creation of the EARF, the U.S. operated in the region under the framework of the Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa.U.S. Brigadier-General Wayne Grigsby, commander of CJTF-HOA, claims his forces are in East Africa only to assist governments in their military campaigns to defeat the “terrorist threat” posed by Al-Shabaab, a Somalia-based guerrilla organization that has fought the Washington-backed regime in Mogadishu for the last six years.But Grigsby also admitted, “The purpose is to protect the United States and its interests abroad.” (Shabelle Media Network, Feb. 7) East and Central Africa have a vast repository of oil, natural gas and strategic minerals.U.S. role in South Sudan and CARAfricom’s EARF has been utilized in the current conflict in the Republic of South Sudan. A contingent of the unit was deployed there to evacuate U.S. Embassy personnel and to guard U.S. economic interests.A significant factor in the South Sudan conflict has been the intervention of the Ugandan People’s Defense Force, which sided with the government of President Salva Kiir. The Ugandan government is a very close ally of the U.S., and its military has benefited for years from Pentagon training programs and weapons procurement.On Jan. 23, a cessation of hostilities agreement was signed by the SPLM/A and the SPLM/A in Opposition, the faction represented by ousted Vice President Riek Machar. It called for the withdrawal of Ugandan troops from South Sudan. The dissident SPLM/A in Opposition, however, says the UPDF is carrying out aerial bombings and ground operations in contested areas.In the Central African Republic, the U.S. has been assisting with the transport of French and African troops into the country. The forced resignation of interim President Michel Djotodia and the Seleka Coalition and his replacement by Catherine Samba-Panza have not stabilized the political and security situation. Anti-Muslim mobs both within the CAR military and among Christian militias have engaged in attacks on Islamic communities, seriously injuring and killing many people.A spokesperson for U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel said airlift support was requested “to enable African forces to deploy promptly to prevent the further spread of sectarian violence in the Central African Republic.” The Pentagon assistant press secretary stated, “The United States is joining the international community in this effort because of our belief that immediate action is required to avert a humanitarian and human rights catastrophe in the Central African Republic, and because of our interest in peace and security in the region.” (Stars and Stripes, Jan. 22)No ‘humanitarian’ military interventionThe intervention of both France and the U.S., however, has only worsened the conditions for people in the CAR. Tens of thousands of Muslims are fleeing the country to neighboring Chad, as divisions are becoming more pronounced based on religious differences and perceptions of political power.The United Nations Security Council has authorized the deployment of European Union troops to the CAR, but there is no evidence this will stabilize the ­situation.The growing French, U.S. and EU military involvement in Africa is designed to secure Western imperialist dominance over the oil, diamonds, gold and uranium that exist in abundance in the CAR and South Sudan.The imperialists are creating the conditions for the deterioration of the societies involved, and with their false propaganda about humanitarian assistance, are providing further rationale for an even heavier military occupation.Anti-war and anti-imperialist organizations in the U.S. must oppose these so-called “humanitarian interventions” because they are acts of war and military occupation. Resources utilized for these imperialist operations would be better served to put people in the U.S. back to work with jobs that pay a living wage.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

During his more than six years at TCU, he received “excellent” reviews of his performance, according to the brief. In fall 2017, Avitia’s workload was increased because about 100 people joined the veteran/dependent student population. According to the brief, Avitia asked to be reclassified as an exempt employee so he could work as many hours as necessary each week to finish his work, without needing overtime. According to the document, Avitia’s white female counterpart, the NCAA certifying employee, was classified as exempt, but Avitia’s request was denied. Around Oct. 1, 2017, Avitia filed a race, national origin and sex discrimination complaint with Dr. Darron Turner, TCU’s chief inclusion officer and Title IX coordinator, according to the document. Avitia named his supervisor, Tiffany Wendt, and the registrar, Mary Kincannon, as those giving him “disparate treatment.”According to the document, Turner tried to convince Avitia not to file a complaint. Another plaintiff, Jane Doe No. 3, also alleged Turner encouraged her not to file a complaint with the Title IX office.After Avitia filed the complaint, Turner spoke with Kincannon, and according to the brief, Kincannon later told Avitia she “did not like hearing complaints from other departments.” Avitia then received criticism of his performance, was placed on a performance improvement plan and was terminated in April 2018, according to the document.The information requested by Avitia is important to the Title VII discrimination case, according to the brief, because the plaintiff currently relies on circumstantial evidence. Proof of discrimination can reveal TCU’s policy and practice related to minority employment and may show pretext, according to the document. “‘Cross category’ discrimination, that is discrimination against other non-whites who are not the same race as the Plaintiff, is relevant to show Defendant’s discrimination against non-whites,” according to the document.Though proof of an environment of discrimination does not prove discrimination against a person, it can show that the reasons for an employer’s action were “implicitly influenced” by a plaintiff’s race, age, sex or religion, according to the brief.

On Monday, his attorney filed a brief in the 342nd District Court, asking the court to force the university to provide information about other discrimination cases, as well as “personnel file information, contact information for persons with knowledge of relevant facts, and studies and reports of discrimination issues performed by Defendant TCU or outside consultants.” “As a practice, Texas Christian University does not comment on the specifics of pending litigation.” TCU’s statementThe brief filed by Avitia’s attorney, Jason C.N.

During RSF’s first visit to Somalia, the Prime minister announces a moratorium on arrests of journalists

Crédit : Sayid Ali Taatiko. February 24, 2021 Find out morecenter_img Radio reporter gunned on city street in central Somalia RSF_en RSF and NUSOJ call for release of a journalist held in Somalia’s Puntland region During an unprecedented meeting today with RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire, Somali President Mohamed Farmaajo undertook to press ahead with combatting impunity for crimes against journalists and said he agreed on the principle of a moratorium on arrests and detention of journalists in connection with their work.During a subsequent meeting with Mohamed Hussein Roble, Somalia’s new prime minister, Roble announced that this moratorium would be adopted soon.  Its implementation is already being debated. Such a moratorium is one of the recommendations that RSF and the National Union of Somali Journalists (NUSOJ) have been advocating in recent months.Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk, and NUSOJ secretary-general Omar Faruk also attended today’s meetings, which took place in Villa Somalia, the president’s official residence and office. The delegation also met with the new information minister, Osman Abokor Dube.The announcement represents a major commitment as regards protecting journalists in Somalia. At least 25 journalists were detained in 2019 – often for several days or even weeks – after being arrested arbitrarily by the security services, and the 2020 total will be even higher.The RSF delegation also called for another revision of the “media law,” of which the latest version, promulgated in August, poses major dangers as well as containing a number of improvements on the 2016 version.“This moratorium will constitute a major step forward for Somali journalists, in a country that has been near the bottom of the World Press Freedom Index for too long,” Deloire said. “We urge the president and the entire new Somali government to continue efforts to improve the environment for journalists and encourage the emergence of a free, independent, high quality press.”Osman added: “This is a historic and unprecedented commitment that will help to end arbitrary arrests of Somali journalists and their often illegal detention. We will make every efforts to monitor its implementation, which we hope will begin as soon as possible.”In the runup to parliamentary elections in December and a presidential election in February 2021, RSF has also called for the urgent creation of a dedicated mechanism for the security and protection of journalists, with the appointment of focal points in all the government ministries and agencies concerned.Somalia continues to be one of the world’s most dangerous countries for the media. Fifty journalists have been killed in the past decade in Somalia, nearly half of the total killed in all of sub-Saharan Africa in the same period.Recent months have seen encouraging signs as regards efforts to combat crimes of violence against Somali journalists. A policeman was convicted in absentia for a journalist’s murder and two soldiers were arrested and punished for mistreating two journalists during detention. A prosecutor has also just been appointed with special responsibility for investigating murders of journalists. He must be given the resources he needs to complete his investigations.Somalia is ranked 163rd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index.

Responses of Antarctic pack-ice seals to environmental change and increasing krill fishing

first_imgThe compound effects of changing habitats, ecosystem interactions, and fishing practices have implications for the management of Antarctic krill and conservation of its predators. For Antarctic pack-ice seals, an important group of krill predators, we estimate the density and krill consumption in the West Antarctic Peninsula (WAP)–Western Weddell Sea area, the main fishery region; and we consider long-term changes in suitable pack-ice habitat, increased fishing pressure and potential krill declines based upon predictions from declines in sea ice cover. More than 3 million crabeater seals consumed over 12 million tonnes of krill each year. This was approximately 17% of the krill standing stock. The highest densities of pack ice seals where found in the WAP, including in its small-scale fishery management areas, where apparently suitable seal habitat has declined by 21–28% over a 30 year period, where krill density is likely to have declined, and fishing has increased. The highest seal density was found in the Marguerite Bay area which is a source of krill for the Antarctic Peninsula and elsewhere. Significant sea-ice loss since 1979 has already occurred, leading to open water and possible expansion for the fishery in the future. These factors may combine to potentially reduce food for pack ice seals. Therefore, high uncertainty in krill and seal stock trends and in their environmental drivers call for a precautionary management of the krill fishery, in the absence of survey data to support management based on specific conservation objectives for pack-ice seals.last_img read more
