Also, to bolster their all-rounder department and have a backup for inconsistent Andre Russell, KKR might want to add Shivam Dube, who has been released by RCB.

I’d buy IAG shares today then buckle up for a bumpy ride

first_img 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. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Harvey Jones | Tuesday, 10th November, 2020 | More on: IAG “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I’d buy IAG shares today then buckle up for a bumpy ride Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! See all posts by Harvey Jones Image source: Getty Images center_img While I’m a big fan of buying FTSE 100 stocks on bad news, investing in International Consolidated Airlines Group (LSE: IAG) shares has been too much of a gamble for me this year. The colossal uncertainty hanging over the airline sector is a risk too far, for all but the bravest investors, I feel.Those who did bet on IAG shares will be celebrating right now, as its share price rebounds. It ended yesterday 25.48% higher, as news of Pfizer’s vaccine success brought the return to international flying a lot closer (or so we all hope). Impressively, the British Airways owner is up another 5% today, at time of writing, as the party spirit bubbles over into a second day.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…So have I missed out on a great buying opportunity? The answer is yes, but I don’t despair. I think we still face an uncertain, virus-hit winter and this should give me plenty of opportunity to buy IAG shares at a bargain price.This FTSE 100 stock is cheap todayBy conventional valuation metrics, IAG shares are cheap today. They have fallen by around three quarters, year-to-date. Right now, the P/E ratio stands at just 1.2 times earnings (although it was only 4x or 5x times before the crisis).Do not underestimate the damage inflicted on IAG and other carriers this year. Airlines have had to ground fleets, while continuing to cover huge servicing costs. Revenues have plunged, dividends have been wiped out, and customers refunded. In the third quarter, IAG posted a loss of €1.3bn. This level of carnage is not quickly reversed.Normally a low oil price would be good for profits, but that doesn’t apply when planes aren’t fuelling. Today, Morgan Stanley acted to calm vaccine euphoria, warning that plenty of liquidity is required in 2021 for IAG shares to fly.IAG also had to raise funds, but at least there was good news here. Investors snapped up its £2.5bn rights issue, with demand exceeding supply. Any investor who believes in the long-term potential of IAG shares isn’t the only one, it seems.I’d buy IAG shares for the long haulRight now, IAG shares look to me like a bet on whether Pfizer’s vaccine will work, which isn’t a done deal. The tests haven’t yet been peer-reviewed. Vaccines have to be manufactured and distributed. They must be kept in temperatures of minus 70°C. We do not know how long protection lasts.Even if all goes well, it may be spring before we start to see the light at the end of the tunnel. On the other hand, people will be rushing to book flights the moment they can, judging by this summer, and forward bookings data could lift IAG shares higher.I don’t have direct exposure to the airline sector, and would consider buying IAG shares today. They still look cheap but I would treat it as a long-term buy-and-hold. The next few months still look bumpy to me.

Director of Music Morristown, NJ Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Rector Collierville, TN Rector Belleville, IL Sanam Naraghi-Anderlini tells a gathering in the Chapel of Christ the Lord at the Episcopal Church Center on March 16 that women’s experiences and voices are often discarded and erased from decision-making processes and even from history. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service] For centuries and all over the world, women have always worked for peace and, while their skills are more needed now than ever, one peacemaker says women’s stories and their abilities have been discounted and erased.Sanam Naraghi-Anderlini, co-founder and executive director of the Washington, D.C.-based International Civil Society Action Network, told a March 16 gathering at the Episcopal Church Center in New York that the rulers of the world – political and otherwise – do not acknowledge the basic fact that “when you look across time and geography when women collectively organize as women, they don’t use violence.”“We might be disrupters; we might have a level of militancy but it’s not as if you have guerilla groups of women,” said, Naraghi-Anderlini, also an adjunct professor at Georgetown University, who in 2011, was the first senior expert on gender and inclusion on the United Nations’ Mediation Standby Team. Naraghi-Anderlini was born in Iran and educated in England at Oxford and Cambridge.The March 16 gathering was connected to the 60th session of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women March 14-24. Women from across the Episcopal Church and throughout the Anglican Communion representing more than 20 countries have come to New York to attend the session and various parallel events such as Naraghi-Anderlini’s presentation.Her point about the peace-making role of women was vividly described during a question and answer session when Claudette Kigeme, the national coordinator for the Mother’s Union in Burundi, said women in her country are crying out for peace and for the protection of unarmed people, but they are speaking in a country “where truth cannot be said.”Naraghi-Anderlini said that as the U.N. lives its stated mandate of peacemaking, it must begin by paying attention to the people of its member states rather to the governments of those states, to whom the organization currently “kowtows.” And that attention needs to be paid in a coherent way that does not let other countries claim to be poised to help a trouble country when in fact they are simply pursuing their own agenda, she added.Also, she asked Kigeme, “What are the channels of access and influence that you have as an Anglican Communion” to address the ongoing conflict in Burundi. “How do you get your church leaders and others to raise these issues? Who’s whispering what to whom?”Naraghi-Anderlini warned that those in authority will often try to distract women from their goals. “What I see all the time is that they try to depoliticize us because this is really about women getting into the most exclusive male spaces” she said, the spaces of military men and high-level male politicians who “are making decisions for the future of the lives millions of people.”“And, as women, we are saying: ‘Excuse me; we want to have a space at the table.’ And they try to depoliticize us and throw us back into those social issues” and away from “the big decision-making spaces” where major political and security decisions are weighed.In her wide-ranging presentation, Naraghi-Anderlini also discussed what she said were the tensions inherent in living in a world that is more pluralistic than it has ever been, and where communications technology does not allow countries to hide conflicts between their stated values and their actions.As nations struggle to build a common identity amid growing diversity in which many groups practice identity-based politics, “a minority of extreme, exclusionary, violent groups is  are filling the void that others have not,” she said.“Extremism has gone mainstream,” Naraghi-Anderlini said. “And in this country we have to watch out because we’re seeing it in our election campaign that when you start saying stuff about people and demonizing them, you don’t know what that will do.”The Rev. Valerie Webster, left, an Episcopal Church delegate to the UNCSW from Montana, comments during a question and answer session March 16 with Sanam Naraghi-Anderlin, right, in the Chapel of Christ the Lord at the Episcopal Church Center. Beth Adamson, center, facilitated the discussion. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceThe UNCSW serves to promote women’s rights in political, economic, civil, social and educational fields, and to make recommendations on urgent problems regarding women’s rights. The conference has convened annually or biannually since 1946; it reached a turning point in Beijing in 1995 when it adopted a global policy framework for gender equality and the empowerment of women that identified 12 areas of critical concern.The theme for the 60th annual UNCSW is “Women’s empowerment and its link to sustainable development,” and the review theme carried over from the 57th session is “The elimination and prevention of all forms of violence against women and girls,” which includes a framework for addressing, preventing and responding to violence against women and girls.The session’s theme follows the 2015 endorsement by world leaders of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which includes 17 new Sustainable Development Goals and 169 targets that aim to end poverty, combat inequalities and promote prosperity while protecting the environment. The SDGs build upon the eight Millennium Development Goals adopted in 2000Anglican and Episcopal delegates will also participate in Ecumenical Women’s advocacy, including training, ecumenical worship, visiting permanent missions at the United Nations, and continuing advocacy upon return to their local communities.— The Rev.

Coparts donates to 9/11 Monument Fund

first_img Please enter your name here City Council Summary (Presentations)By Misha Corbett of Apopka Then and Now9/11 Monument Presentation13-year old Christian Lamphere shared preliminary design plans for the memorial that he plans to build for the City of Apopka.  He is still raising money for this project, as the piece of the World Trade Center (WTC) received is much larger than he expected.  The plan is to place the memorial on the lawn at City Hall, next to the time capsule.  In the center will be the piece of the WTC, placed atop a pentagon shaped slab.  This will be surrounded by flower beds, to represent the field in Pennsylvania where the plane went down.  At each corner will be a plaque; one each to represent the Fire Department, the Police Officers, the Mayors (past and present), the Military Forces, and the main plaque, which will face due north.  This memorial should be complete by September 11, 2016.  Commissioner Velazquez pointed out an article that was published in a New York paper that confirmed that Hangar 17 at JFK Airport, also known as the graveyard where all of the wreckage from the WTC has been housed since 9/11, is now empty.  Mrs. Velazquez feels Apopka is fortunate and honored to have received one of the very last remaining pieces of the WTC.Copart Check PresentationThe UCF College of Nursing will host a free clinic from 4pm to 9pm on July 26 and July 28 at the Farm Workers Association Building on Apopka Blvd.Michael Carson, the National Property Manager of Copart, was present during the last meeting when the piece of the WTC was formally presented to Christian Lamphere.  He was so moved by the presentation that he went back to the Chairman of the Board and CEO of Copart a contribution.  The decision was made for Copart to donate $2,400.00 to Christian Lamphere for his Eagle Scout project.  In addition, a donation of $1,000.00 was made to Troop 211 to use as they see fit.  Mayor Joe Kilsheimer thanked Carson and stated, “Copart has demonstrated more than once that you guys are valuable members of our community.  We look forward to when you guys get up and running here; the jobs that you are going to bring and the value that you are going to bring to Apopka.”UCF College of Nursing Free Clinic PresentationThe UCF College of Nursing has had a presence in the City of Apopka for the past 18-years.  They have been involved behind the scenes at the John Bridges Center, Phyllis Wheatley Elementary, Lovell Elementary, and Quest to serve the community.  A part of what Dr. Heather Peralta has taught at UCF for the past 3 years is that nurses are a part of a community.  Usually, her group travels to the Dominican Republic to serve during the summer, but are unable to do so at this time due to the Zika virus.  Instead, they have collaborated with the College of Medicine, College of Social Work, the College of Physical Therapy & the University of Florida College of Pharmacy to bring a free clinic to Apopka for the farm workers who are underserved and underrepresented.They will bring Rheumatologist, Dermatologist, Internal Medicine, Well Woman, Pediatric, and more to provide healthcare for the uninsured farm workers.

RSF condemns latest attempt to murder Syrian journalist in Turkey

first_img News December 28, 2015 Find out more RSF_en Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on the Turkish authorities to do everything possible to locate those responsible for a second attempt on Syrian journalist Ahmed Abdelqader’s life in southeastern Turkey and to bring them to justice. TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Condemning abuses Syrian journalist murdered in Turkey, wrote premonitory letter to go further Help by sharing this information News October 30, 2015 Find out more June 14, 2016 RSF condemns latest attempt to murder Syrian journalist in Turkey Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on the Turkish authorities to do everything possible to locate those responsible for a second attempt on Syrian journalist Ahmed Abdelqader’s life in southeastern Turkey and to bring them to justice. The group Islamic State is said to claim responsibility for this latest attack on Abdelqader, in which he was shot several times by men on a motorcycle using a gun with a silencer in the southeastern city of Urfa on the evening of 12 June. He is now hospitalized and said to be in a stable condition.Aged 33, he is the founder and editor of the online newspaper Ayn ala al-Watan (“Eye on Homeland”).The modus operandi of Abdelqader’s would-be killers was similar to that used in the murders of two other Syrian journalists in the Turkish city of Gaziantep – reporter Naji Jerf in December 2015 and TV host Mohamed Zaher Al Sherqat in April 2016. Both were staunch opponents of Islamic State.“We condemn this appalling act and ask the Turkish authorities to adopt measures to ensure the safety of Abdelqader and other Syrian journalists in Turkey,” said Alexandra El Khazen, the head of RSF’s Middle East desk.“This was not the first shooting attack on Syrian journalists who have sought refuge in Turkey but it was nonetheless a shock for those still there, who fear more and more for their safety. The Turkish authorities must bring those responsible to justice.”According to sources close to Abdelqader, he was out shopping when his attackers struck. Injured in the head, he was taken to a hospital in Urfa and is now placed in intensive care. Formely a member of the campaign Raqqa Is Being Slaughtered Silently (RBSS), Abdelqader was previously the target of an attack by two individuals outside his home in March. He told RSF after this earlier murder attempt that he had received many threats and intimidatory messages but did not intend to stop working as a journalist.Islamic State claimed the latest attack via its news agency Aamaq, which said members of the group had fired on Abdelqader. Abdelqader’s newspaper, Ayn ala al-Watan, which covers events in Syria, is clearly opposed to Islamic State.His 20-year-old brother Ibrahim Abdelqader was murdered in Urfa on 30 October 2015 together with a friend, Fares Hammadi. That double murder was also blamed on Islamic State.Turkey is ranked 141st out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index. Syria is ranked 177th.

Kennedy received this prestigious award for her outstanding tireless efforts that have lead to the implementation of successful, unique and groundbreaking community outreach programs.The NCBW-LAC is not the first to recognize good deeds done by Kennedy; she has also received the NAACP Ruby McKnight award and NAACP Community Volunteer award among others. Kennedy is founder, CEO, and president of a strategic political consulting firm, L.L. Kennedy & Associates, specializing in providing consulting for political candidates, business, nonprofits, and individuals. Kennedy currently serves on the boards of Pasadena Arts Council, Community Health Alliance of Pasadena, First AME Church Trustee Board, and the Pasadena Playhouse Diversity Board.Kennedy brought her son Jonathon Kennedy to the stage to wish him a happy 21st birthday and symbolically share the honor with him as well as the rest of her family and 50 plus friends supporting her that day who “collectively achieved” the award with her.“Lena’s the type of person that doesn’t seek accolade or acclaim, she’s just someone who is really in the trenches helping the community whether its helping the young community organizer by the name of Barrack Obama become a President of the United States or helping our local congress woman or helping children obtain scholarships to go to college that’s what she does and she does it without asking for anything in return so she really is a servant leader,” Lena’s brother Councilmember John Kennedy said.Although he said she is normally in the background, she is a powerful force in the community for good.“She makes sure that no plans get left behind. That’s a personal goal of mine, is that no one’s left behind and I always admire Lena for that because she reaches out and encourage anyone to meet their goals in life. She’s a very, very, very exceptionally good at that,” Los Angeles Chapter chair Judy Matthews said.“I’m humbled and I’m grateful. There’s so many people that do incredible work and I’m just one of many that are trying to make the difference in our communities and our society and our country. So I feel blessed and honored that the organization found me worthy enough to receive this honor,” Kennedy said.The congress also honored Dr. Carla Thomas who returned to her roots to keep the Inglewood community smiling with her top quality dentistry practices. She also reaches into the community to teach them about basic hygiene and the importance of caring for teeth among many more efforts.“The National Congress of Black Women is well known for their contributions in the community and communities around the country. So to be recognized by them, by such a phenomenal organization, it’s just absolutely wonderful for me; especially for something that I do because I love to do. Sometimes when you’re recognized with something you do day in and day out, it makes it even better,” Thomas said.The NCBW is recognized nationally for serving the needs of communities across the nation, including recognition by President Barrack Obama who sent a letter of praise with keynote speaker Reverend Brenda Girton-Mitchell for the NCBW as well as the honorees. He was proud of the efforts to work together to build communities and reminded the National Congress that education is the great equalizer.“Los Angeles is one of our number one chapters in the nation. They truly represent what we call women making difference,” Dr. E Faye Williams said who is the national chair of Congress of Black Women for the 100 chapters nationwide.“We thank you Lord for the sweet, sweet spirit in this room.” This statement said in the prayer of Rev. Dr. who came from Washington D.C. to give the keynote speech encapsulated the Luncheon.Everyone in the room cared about making a difference to impact their community. The audience cheered wildly for a good word said or for the people brought to the stage who embodied the theme of “Reaching Out Embracing our Communities.”Other guests of honor who took part in the Luncheon included MC Juanita Palacios Sims, Recording Artist Abraham McDonald, Comedian Kathy Westfield, and Justine Mutale of Zambia who recently won African Woman of the Year. She brought greetings from the motherland to empower the black women of the U.S.For the first time in their four year history, the National Congress of Black Women gave away scholarships at the gala to nine men and women who have chosen to further their education while overcoming hardship, one of whom will be attending Harvard in the fall.“We are truly an organization of service. It doesn’t matter what your status is in life, the type of family that you come from; it doesn’t matter. When a person becomes a member of this organization, they come to serve. To come to lift up that person that cannot step up by themselves,” Chair of the Los Angles Chapter Judy Matthews said.The NCBW-LAC commenced in 2009 to provide services to impact African American women and their families in the Los Angles areas to live successful lives, empower fellow women leaders and bring education even to the dark corners.“And we’re leaving our print, footprints and our handprints making small incremental contributions… no matter how small. They’re incremental but collectively they make a big difference, and I just believe in the power of numbers; pulling people together. We all make a little difference, but when we come together it has a greater impact,” Lena Kennedy said.For more information about the NCBW call (800) 895-3180, email [email protected], or visit Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  First Heatwave Expected Next Week Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday last_img read more

He was the owner and skipper of the Kelpie in 1914 and along with his sister Kitty and Foynes sailors George Cahill and Tom Fitzsimons they conveyed a second consignment of arms from Germany to St Tudwall’s Island, off the Welsh coast.The 600 rifles and 10,000 rounds of ammunition were transferred from there to the Chotah, owned and skippered by Limerick-born Sir Thomas Myles, then President of the Royal College of Surgeons, and were landed at Kilcoole, County Wicklow on August 1, 1914. A total of 15,000 rifles and 45,000 rounds of ammunition were landed in 1914.To honour these Irish nationalist activists, a commemorative booklet is being published by the Mount Trenchard Memorial Committee. The memorial plaque, to be unveiled this weekend, has been sculpted by Cliodhna Cussen.A shuttle bus will run this Sunday between the churches at Foynes and Loughill to the Mount Trenchard churchyard.

Limerick group demands action on housing

first_imgTwitter Limerick city house prices rise 4.9% as time to sell falls RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Limerick county house prices to rise 5% in 2021 Facebook Mortgage payment break for local authority home loan borrowers will be extended by a further three months WhatsApp Linkedin ACTIVISTS took to the street of Limerick on Saturday, February 23, to protest over the growing housing crisis.The recently formed Limerick Housing Action (LHA) group organised a march that gathered at People’s Park and made its way to City Hall on Merchants Quay, where organisers and members of other action groups spoke to the crowd of almost fifty people.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Recent homeless figures have shown that more than 290 people were homeless in Limerick at the end of last year.A spokesperson for the group  said that for many people the housing crisis isn’t about statistics.“Long before the numbers are published in the papers and in the reports, or in the Dáil debates, we’ve already seen them. You’ve seen them on our streets in our homes and on the worried faces of our friends and family.”She said the movement was formed by a “group of concerned community members that came together” with a common goal of supporting those affected by the housing crisis and to “take collective action to demand change”.“I don’t think I’m being too dramatic when I say that probably everyone here is affected by this, the housing crisis or at least know someone who’s affected.”“By coming out today, you have shown that the people in Limerick aren’t going to take it any longer. Underneath it all, we know that there are only two types of people in the housing struggle – the people that profit from it,  and the people who suffer from it.“We also know that there is ultimately more of us than there is of them,” the spokeswoman explained.
