UK share prices have enjoyed a purple patch in recent sessions. Both the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 have been soaring rapidly as investor confidence has improved. Regardless of whether stocks are up or down, I myself am on the hunt (as always) for some of the best UK stocks to buy right now.As a UK share investor, I’m hoping the new bull market has truly kicked off. However, I won’t be sticking my head in the proverbial oven if British stock markets slump again. As a long-term investor I buy for my Stocks and Shares ISA based on the returns I could make over an extended time period (say a decade or more). Stock market volatility can be common so buying UK shares for short-term gains is an extremely risky business.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 UK share on my radarThat said, I’d be very happy to invest as much as £10k in UK engineering share TI Fluid Systems (LSE: TIFS). I think that companies involved in the manufacture and running of electric cars could end up being some of the best stocks to buy. And this particular one — which makes fluid systems for cars — is increasingly focused on rolling out products for hybrid and battery-only vehicles.Lawmakers across the globe are ramping up green legislation to combat the climate crisis. And citizens are doing their part to reduce their carbon footprints too. This is why global sales of electric vehicles (EVs) rocketed 43% in 2020 (according to EV-volumes.com). This was despite the impact of Covid-19 on the broader motor industry. And it’s also in spite of the handsome premiums that these sorts of vehicles command compared with their petrol and diesel equivalents.One of the best stocks to buy for the EV market?That said, the cost of buying an average EV has fallen of late. And prices are tipped to keep dropping as well. This bodes well for future demand for these greener vehicles and by extension take-up of TI Fluid Systems’ product. Researcher BloombergNEF suggests that electric cars will actually be cheaper to produce that those running on fossil fuels by 2027. This is great news for TI Fluid systems as hybrid and battery-only cars require more fluid-handling content than vehicles with internal combustion engines.All of this explains why City analysts think earnings at TI Fluid Systems will soar 677% in 2021 and 32% next year. This could be one of the best stocks to buy for the fast-growing EV market. And it’s one I’d happily buy today and hold for at least 10 years. That’s even though the industry it operates in is fierce and success in securing contracts with OEMs isn’t a given. That’s a big risk for the firm. And it’s a danger that could worsen if its technologies fail to keep pace with those of its rivals. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares See all posts by Royston Wildlast_img read more

The project deals with the subsequent use of agricultural buildings in rural areas. The aim was to take up the unused spatial qualities of the former economic tract of a typical Bregenzerwald farmhouse and to identify the building in the sense of a multi-generational house. In the generous cubature of the former threshing floor of the house, a compact, comfortable living space was created by means of replacement construction, which is closely related to the exterior space and the local building tradition.Save this picture!© Lukas Gaechter PhotographyLocation. This project is located in Lingenau, a village in the heart of the Lower Bregenzerwald (Bregenz Forest). The farmhouse, typical for this region, is located there a little away from the village center, surrounded by meadows. Once destined to cultivate the surrounding fields, this location with its exposed position offers unique qualities. The farm was closed down decades ago, leaving many unused areas in the house. These had to be revived for the next generation.Save this picture!© Lukas Gaechter PhotographySave this picture!© Lukas Gaechter PhotographyWay of Hay. Where once the hay for the animals was stored, you enter the additionally created housing unit. A staircase leads from this entrance area into a bright, warm living area. Here you will find a work area and an elongated living room on about 70 m², which are arranged around a central supply core consisting of a kitchen, toilet, and pantry.

Planting Intentions Report Gives a Boost to Corn Market

first_img SHARE Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Mar 31, 2014 Burgess on planting intentions reportOld crop corn and soybeans benefited from lower stocks than average estimates when USDA released the much anticipated March reports. The new crop corn market got a boost from a lower than expected planted acreage number for 2014. The number is estimated at 91.7 million acres, down 4 percent from last year.“That was a sizable revision lower from what we saw last year and it was a little bit light relative to trade expectations coming into the report,” said Logan Burgess with Grain Hedge. “It was about a million acres below the average trade guess. As a result we’re seeing some strength out of the new crop corn and looking to make a little bit of a breakout here from our recent trade range. So I think today’s report puts new crop corn on some good footing here.”If realized it would be the lowest planted acreage in the United States since 2010, but still the fifth largest corn acreage in the United States since 1944. Expected acreage for Indiana dropped 3 percent to 5.8 million.As expected the soybean planted area for 2014 went up and is estimated at a record high 81.5 million acres, up 6 percent from last year.“That’s 5 million acres larger than what we had last year and the number was about 500,000 acres above what traders were expecting coming into the report,” Burgess said. “Soybeans remain a different story than corn. We’ve seen a really good run in this new crop market off the January lows and right now if I was a soybean producer I would be keeping a close eye on this new crop contract. I think the report sets up a little bit of a bearish story here for soybeans moving forward.”Compared with last year, soybean planted acreage intentions are up or unchanged across all states with the exception of Missouri and Oklahoma. Indiana saw a jump of 6 percent to 5.5 million acres.Now with the acres foundation established, Burgess says the trade turns its attention to weather in the coming days, weeks, and months.

Dmitri Zavadski’s case : four years of impunity

If Belarus wants one day to join the Council of Europe it will have to take the unavoidable step of holding an independent investigation to establish all the guilt in this case,” the two press freedom organisations said.Reporters Without Borders and the BAJ welcomed steps taken by the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) which recently established the implication of the authorities in the journalist’s disappearance.On 28 April 2004, the PACE called on the international community to “exert maximum political pressure on the current leaders of Belarus, including through sanctions” to obtain an independent investigation into the disappearance of four people in 1999 and 2000. These were: Yuri Zakharenko (former interior minister), Victor Gonchar (former parliamentary deputy speaker), Anatoly Krassovski (businessman) and the journalist Dmitri Zavadski.”The information gathered by the rapporteur leads it to believe that steps were taken at the highest level of the state to actively cover up the true circumstances of the disappearances, and to suspect that senior officials of the state may themselves be involved in these disappearances,” the assembly concluded.The Council of Europe’s special rapporteur for Europe, Christos Pourgouridès, in a report published in January 2004, referred to serious suspicions of involvement of three officials in the journalist’s disappearance, as well as in similar cases involving public figures. These officials were: Prosecutor-general Viktor Sheiman, who was former head of the National Security Council and Yuri Sivakov, then interior minister and now minister for sports and tourism, and Dmitri Pavlichenko, commander of a police special unit.Reporters Without Borders and the BAJ support in particular the following demands: – The resignation, because of an unacceptable conflict of interest, of the prosecutor-general Viktor Sheiman;- The opening of an independent criminal investigation with the priority of examining the parts played by Viktor Sheiman, Yuri Sivakov and Dmitri Pavlichenko;- Examination of the responsibilities of several high-ranking officials in the perversion of the course of justice, in order to protect the true perpetrators of the crime;- To keep the family of the missing person fully informed of the progress and results of the investigation.At the beginning of April 2004, Svetlana Zavadskaya, wife of the missing journalist, received a letter telling her that the investigation into his disappearance had been closed because “the missing individual had not been found”. The general prosecutor’s office had earlier, on 27 February 2003, decided to close the investigation before reopening it on 10 December, giving no official justification, apart from “the need to pursue the inquiries”.Reporters Without Borders and the BAJ called unsuccessfully on the prosecutor-general Viktor Sheiman, to give Zavadski’s family reasons in writing why the officer in charge of the case, Ivan Branchel, decided to close the case.The organisations also called on the prosecutor’s office to list what steps had been taken to find the journalist and also what inquiries had been initially planned but not carried out and why not.Reporters Without Borders and the BAJ felt the family had the right to know if the two members of the interior ministry’s special services, who were convicted of the kidnapping after a secret trial before the Supreme Court, had pleaded guilty and given information about the fate of the journalist after the kidnapping as well as the spot where his body was buried.The family also does not know if accomplices to the abduction who were referred to during the trial had been identified and if they had been able to provide any information.The KGB did not respond to a request from the wives of the four missing men, including Svetlana Zavadskaya, asking them to take action against high-ranking officials suspected of links with these crimes.Dmitri Zavadski disappeared In Minsk on 7 July 2000. A former personal cameraman to President Alexander Lukashenko, he left his job at State television in 1996 to work for the Russian channel ORT. He was imprisoned for two months along with a colleague, in 1997, after reporting on weaknesses in Belarus security along the border with Lithuania. On 16 July 2002, the Belarus Supreme Court confirmed a life sentence against Valery Ignatovich, former head of special units at the interior ministry and a subordinate, Maxim Malik, for abduction and disappearance of the young cameraman and for the murder of five other people.According to the official version of events, Ignatovich decided to seek revenge against Zavadski because he felt himself the target of the journalist’s remarks, when he said in an interview in 2000 with the daily Belorusskaya Delovaya Gazeta, that he had met Belarus nationals fighting alongside separatists in Chechnya. The trial did not allow the exact circumstances of the journalist’s kidnapping to come out nor did it identify those who ordered it.Russian version News Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown “We welcome opening of criminal investigation in Lithuania in response to our complaint against Lukashenko” RSF says Organisation News RSF_en Help by sharing this information Receive email alerts June 2, 2021 Find out more July 7, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Dmitri Zavadski’s case : four years of impunitylast_img read more

Septuagenarian journalist’s cellmates in Cameroon have Covid-19

first_img L’ex directeur de la CRTV Amadou Vamoulké lors d’une audience le 13/11/2020 à Yaoundé, Cameroun. Crédit : RSF Receive email alerts Vamoulké writes that, according to this detainee, another of their cellmates is still hospitalised with Covid-19 and has “40% of his lungs damaged,” and that a third cellmate has symptoms of the virus and has just been placed under medical supervision. Their prison, Kondengui prison in the capital Yaoundé, was built to house 1,000 inmates but currently holds around 3,500. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) holds the Cameroonian authorities responsible for what happens to Amadou Vamoulké, a 71-year-old journalist who has been jailed arbitrarily for nearly five years and who reports in an open letter today to the justice minister that at least two of his cellmates have contracted Covid-19 in recent days. This journalist must be freed before it is too late, RSF says. Organisation to go further CameroonAfrica Condemning abusesProtecting journalists Covid19ImprisonedPredators After RSF drew its attention to the case, the United Nations called for Vamoulké’s release a year ago on the grounds that his detention had “no legal basis.” The violations of his right to due process were so serious that they conferred an “arbitrary character” on his detention, the UN said. Vamoulke’s trial is being conducted in a completely illegally manner. The court has so far held a record 64 hearings without getting any closer to reaching a verdict. No other Cameroonian journalist has ever been subjected to this kind of judicial treatment. Vamoulké has been held since July 2016 while being subjected to a never-ending trial on a charge of  “misusing funds” – not for his person benefit but for the benefit of CRTV, which he ran from 2005 until his arrest. He has several chronic ailments including a neurological condition described as “severe” by two neurologists who have examined him or seen his medical file and who agree that he needs medevacking for treatment abroad. “This journalist, who has been held for years in a completely illegal manner, is now in danger of dying because of his age and poor state of health,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “Keeping him in detention in these conditions cannot be justified on any grounds. We urge the Cameroonian authorities to free him before it is too late.” CameroonAfrica Condemning abusesProtecting journalists Covid19ImprisonedPredators Help by sharing this information In his letter, Vamoulké voices amazement at the way the justice minister “declared war” on him and says he is aware that his open letter could result in his being transferred to “an even more inhuman place of incarceration” such as the defence ministry’s prison. “But this matters little to me because, without ever having embezzled anything, I have already spend 1,708 days in illegal incarceration,” he fatalistically concludes. News Newscenter_img Cameroonian journalist Paul Chouta sentenced and fined in defamation case Follow the news on Cameroon The former head of the state-owned national radio and TV broadcaster CRTV, Vamoulké reveals in his letter to justice minister Laurent Esso, one of the most influential members of President Paul Biya’s government, that one of his eight cellmates has just returned with “suffocating chest pains” from a brief spell in hospital.

Russia: Reporter’s long jail sentence is “disgraceful,” RSF says

first_imgRussia is ranked 148th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index. Russia urged to free journalist held for 12 months on spurious charge (July 2016) Two Russian journalists persecuted for investigating police corruption “This sentence is disgraceful,” said Johann Bihr, the head of the Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk at Reporters Without Borders (RSF), which has been calling for Sokolov’s release for the past two years. to go further May 21, 2021 Find out more RSF urges as many journalists as possible to be present when the verdict is issued at midday today at Moscow’s Tverskoy district court, Room 20. Follow the news on Russia Russia : Investigative reporter Alexander Sokolov must be acquitted! Читать по-русски в PDF / Read in Russian News RussiaEurope – Central Asia Condemning abuses CorruptionJudicial harassmentImprisoned “After two years too many behind bars, Alexander Sokolov must be acquitted and freed,” said Johann Bihr, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “This trial has highlighted the urgent need to reform Russia’s anti-extremism legislation to prevent its arbitrary use for repressive purposes.” The indictment does little except criminalize peaceful activities. It makes little reference to Sokolov’s role with the group, which appears to have been very limited. August 10, 2017 Russia: Reporter’s long jail sentence is “disgraceful,” RSF says In the opinion of RSF, which has been campaigning for Sokolov’s release ever since his arrest, the weakness of the prosecution’s case shows that Sokolov’s journalistic activities are the real reason he has been put on trial. In a textbook example of how free speech is crushed in Russia, Sokolov was arrested in July 2015 after exposing a corruption scandal and has been held ever since on unsubstantiated “extremism” charges. In the trial that began nine months ago, the prosecution is seeking a four-year prison sentence. Sokolov had specialized in covering politics and corruption at his job with the independent media group RBC since 2013. His last story was about massive embezzlement of public funds in the construction of the Vostochny Cosmodrome. He has a PhD in economics for which his thesis was about embezzlement by major Russian companies.

Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown News News Receive email alerts “By persisting with this prosecution despite two years of pre-trial detention, vacillating allegations, no hard evidence and an Orwellian charge, the judicial authorities have just reinforced the impression that Alexander Sokolov is being persecuted because his journalistic activities were a source of irritation.” ZOV was campaigning for a referendum to amend the Russian constitution so that politicians could be held accountable under criminal law. As this could hardly be regarded as a crime, the indictment claims that Sokolov “realized” that the group’s true aims were “destabilization of the government” and “distribution of extremist texts.” News May 5, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Share Save Home / Daily Dose / Stock Market Rallies as Housing Beats Expectations in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News The S&P 500 hit a record high on Monday, and is up more than 20% year-to-date, completely rebounding from its August crash.The Dow Jones crashed more than 800 points in August, and the 10-year Treasury yield briefly broke the two-year rate for the first time since 2005—an economic marker that has often proved a forerunner of recessions in times past. CNBC reports that there have been five inversions of the 2-year and 10-year yields since 1978. A recession followed each inversion. However, data shows that those recessions began on average 22 months after the initial inversion. The S&P 500 hit a new record of 3,038.62 as of 10:45 a.m. CDT, which is 16% higher than the previous closing. The Dow Jones Industrial Average hit a high of 25,639 when the market crashed on August 14, but rose to 27,072 during its rebound on October 28. President Donald Trump, in response to the rallying stock market, tweeted that this is a “big win for jobs, 401-K’s and, frankly, everyone. Our country is doing great.” In BuildFax’s September Housing Health Report, Jonathan Kanarek, COO, BuildFax noted that the housing market is beating expectations, even with the threat of recession.“Amidst concerns of a recession, it’s promising to see the housing market responding to the impact of mortgage rate decreases and other positive moves in the market,” he added. “If housing continues showing the promise of growth, or even a leveling off, this activity has the potential to stimulate the larger economy.”CNBC states that after hitting a new high on July 26, recession fear led the Augusts’ sell-off. The S&P 500 fell 1.8%, but has since grown by 6% from that August low. Also aiding to the rally is the reported progress being made in trade negotiations between the U.S. and China. “Of the S&P 500 companies that have reported over the last month, just 32 mention recession on their calls,” said Nick Mazing of Sentieo in the CNBC report. Recent economic recovery has slowed talk of a recession, but Duke Professor Campbell Harvey, an expert on the yield curve, warned that the yield curve’s un-inversion in recent week should not be considered a “all clear” sign. A recession may still be on the horizon, he told Business Insider. A negative spread between the three-month and 10-year Treasury yields—known as a yield-curve inversion—has precluded each of the seven economic recessions since 1950.
