See all posts by Cliff D’Arcy Cliff D’Arcy | Wednesday, 3rd June, 2020 | More on: BHP 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. During the coronavirus crisis, I’ve become more conservative when selecting stocks and shares. Since March, I’ve focused almost exclusively on the corporate giants: FTSE 100 members.FTSE 100 bargains still aboundThough the FTSE 100 has risen around a quarter (actually 24%) since its 23 March low, I’m unconvinced that the worst is over. I keep worrying about these four problems: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…1. The economy. Will the recovery be V-shaped or shallow?2. Politics. Will world leaders (Trump!) throw a spanner in the stock market’s works?3. Trade. How will the US-China showdown pan out?4. Earnings. Strong companies will grow, the weak will struggle, and the weakest will die.Long term, the market is a weighing machineThough I worry about these issues, I know that #4 is the most important factor for long-term investing. As billionaire Warren Buffett remarked in 1974, “In the short run, [the market] is a voting machine; in the long run, it’s a weighing machine.”Hence, my definition of great companies are those which increase their earnings strongly over time. There will be ups and downs, but much higher earnings 10 and 20 years from now would be my goal.Another ‘boring’ FTSE 100 dividendLast week, I highlighted the 7.7% yearly dividend on offer from FTSE 100 miner Rio Tinto. Today, I turn to yet another mega-mining company, BHP Group (LSE: BHP), Rio’s bigger FTSE 100 rival.American satirist Mark Twain quipped that a mine is “a hole in the ground owned by a liar.” While that was true during the Gold Rush, BHP is a world-leading resources company, extracting, processing and selling minerals, oil and gas worldwide.When it comes to earnings and dividends, big is beautiful, and you don’t get much bigger. Based in Melbourne and jointly listed in Australia and the UK, BHP is a £90bn colossus employing 72,000 people across the globe. Here are BHP’s fundamentals:Share price, 1,635p; 12-month price change, -8.4%; price-to-earnings ratio (P/E), 10.5; dividend yield, 7.07%; and dividend cover, 1.34 times.As you can see, after the steepest stock-market crash in history, BHP’s share price is down a mere 8.4% in 12 months. It has ranged between 940p on 12 March (the buying opportunity of a lifetime) and 2,079p last July.BHP shares trade on slightly over 10 times annual earnings and offer a tidy dividend yield of nearly 7.1%. Good news: this dividend is well covered by earnings, so it’s solid and has scope for growth.Its last dividend of $0.65 was paid on 24 March, at the height of the market convulsions. Also, this FTSE 100 firm properly looks after its owners, with its cash dividend rising steeply every year since the lows of 2016. This shows the sheer financial muscle of this literally ‘boring’ company.In short, reinvesting that annual 7.1% yield into more shares will almost double your money in 10 years (all else being equal). What’s not to like?last_img read more

Lack of faith in charities a barrier to giving for 1 in 4 wealthy individuals

first_img  420 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis13 Melanie May | 19 November 2019 | News  419 total views,  2 views today One in four wealthy individuals state a lack of faith in how charities are run and a lack of control over how money is used as major reasons preventing them from donating more to charity, according to a new report by Barclays Private Bank.However, 7 in 10 also think giving to charity is for those more wealthy than themselves.Barriers to Giving, commissioned by Barclays Private Bank and undertaken by global intelligence business Savanta, identifies an underlying sense of ‘us and them’ between high net worth individuals (HNWIs) and charities. This, it says, is driven by a lack of understanding and poor communication, which has a detrimental impact on the potential for HNWIs and charities to develop mutually beneficial partnerships over the longer term.25% of wealthy individuals state a lack of faith in how charities are run, while 27% point to a lack of control over how money is used as major reasons that prevent them from donating more to charity.The report also found that 74% of HNWIs believe philanthropy is a responsibility of those wealthier than themselves. Almost half (46%) believe that it is the responsibility of the government or state to support charitable organisations’ causes, while 35% believe that making extra donations wouldn’t be large enough to have a significant impact and a quarter (24%) cite a lack of knowledge, experience and contact with the charity sector as a hurdle to overcome when considering large donations.Charities’ current perceptions and methods of engaging with HNWIs are also identified in the report as barriers to major giving, such as the assumptions that HNWIs often demand ‘too much control’ over their donations and that they can ‘always give more’.To bridge the gap between HNWIs and charities, Barclays Private Bank is partnering with The Beacon Collaborative, a collective founded to encourage and celebrate major donors in the UK, and the Institute of Fundraising. The partnership aims to deliver a step change in giving by building trust and understanding between HNWIs and charities. It will support The Beacon Collaborative’s objective to generate an additional £2 billion in donations to charity by 2025. Barclays Private Bank and The Beacon Collaborative will also work with the Institute of Fundraising to deliver a series of events to help fundraisers engage and form long-term relationships with HNWIs.Matthew Bowcock, co-founder of The Beacon Collaborative said:“Philanthropy has a crucial role to play in modern society – especially in today’s climate, where inequality has created deep divisions. As this report reveals, there is more to be done to bridge the gap between charities and donors. Strengthening such relationships, with the help of Barclays Private Bank and the Institute of Fundraising, will be essential in meeting our goal to secure an additional £2 billion in annual collective funding by 2025.”Peter Lewis, Chief Executive of the Institute of Fundraising said: Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis13 “We’re delighted to be bringing the findings of Barriers to Giving 2020 to life for the hundreds of charities we support, with a series of events that will help fundraisers to better understand wealthy donors, and to build more impactful, longer-term relationships with them. At the same time there is a need to help HNWIs better understand charities and the impact we know is achieved.” Lack of faith in charities a barrier to giving for 1 in 4 wealthy individuals About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Support people-to-people aid for Puerto Rico

first_imgWhat follows is the text of an email from the International Action Center sent to activists around the United States.The International Action Center is launching a people-to-people aid campaign for the ultra-devastated nation of Puerto Rico.The IAC is collecting monetary donations to send to politically established grassroots organizations — specifically the Puerto Rico Teachers’ Federation (FMPR), which is working with other unions and groups organizing working brigades throughout the island to help poor communities, teachers and students who lost everything.Why is the IAC launching this campaign?  The entire world has seen the utter destruction of the beautiful island of Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria hit the Caribbean on Sept. 20.  Weeks after the hurricane hit, millions remain without food, water or shelter.  Almost the entire island has no electricity. People are dying, hungry and desperate despite the fact that it is well-known that the U.S. could alleviate the situation if it really wanted to.It will take years to repair Puerto Rico. But if the solidarity movement does not continue its work in the U.S. to demand genuine aid, the island could be rebuilt entirely for the needs of the banks and the corporations. The gentrification we see in our neighborhoods will take over the entire island.Furthermore, the struggle against colonialism and for the independence of Puerto Rico could be completely derailed as a result of this catastrophe. We are confident, however, that the Puerto Rican people will not allow this to happen.The IAC wants to do its part to help. We are carrying out people-to-people solidarity by sending money to organizations that have long been in the struggle to defend the people from U.S. imperialism.Long after the news of Puerto Rico is off the front pages, solidarity actions with Puerto Rico and all the Caribbean will be urgent. The U.S. solidarity movement is now discussing people-to-people work brigades as well as continued protests to demand real aid, not military occupation for Puerto Rico. Furthermore, Trump’s arrogant actions toward Puerto Rico cannot be used by the Democrats to overlook the real issues. It was under the Democratic administration of Barack Obama that the Promesa Act was passed, forcing Puerto Rico to pay the illegitimate debt of $74 billion!Donate to the IAC at iacenter.org. One hundred percent of the money collected will go to the FMPR with a message of solidarity against U.S. imperialism.We are calling for:An end to PROMESA, repeal the Jones Act!No privatization of the island!Puerto Rico for the Puerto Ricans, not the banks!Cancel the debt and pay reparations!No militarization of Puerto Rico!Solidarity with the Virgin Islands, Haiti and all the Caribbean!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Philippine radio host gunned down for criticizing corrupt gambling

first_img Organisation November 12, 2019 Philippine radio host gunned down for criticizing corrupt gambling Police Colonel Julian Entoma, the head of the Negros Oriental provincial police, told the media that, in addition to Aledro, the police have identified three other suspects: Aledro’s brother-in-law, Teddy Salaw, and two accomplices within the police force, Glenn Corsame and Roher Rubio. So far, only Salaw and Corsame have been arrested. Aledro and Rubio are still at large.

News Generoso’s murder recalls that of Edmund Sestoso, another Dumaguete-based radio commentator, who was gunned down by a motorcycle gunman as he was driving home in May 2018. Sestoso’s murder is still unpunished. The Philippines is ranked 134th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on the Philippine police to complete their investigation into last week’s murder of a radio commentator in Dumaguete City, the capital of Negros Oriental province, and to bring all the suspects to justice. “We hail the speed with which the police appear to have identified the perpetrators and instigators of Dindo Generoso’s terrible murder,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk. “Now they must ensure that all these criminals are found and brought to justice in order to break the vicious cycle of impunity that so often accompanies crimes of violence against Philippine journalists.” PhilippinesAsia – Pacific Condemning abuses Organized crimePredatorsViolence News News Follow the news on Philippines Receive email alerts to go further At first the provincial police suggested that his murder was the result of a family feud.

Justice Subramonium Prasad has dismissed the petition filed under sec. 482 Cr.P.C. praying for quashing of an FIR dated 22.11.2019 registered in Patel Nagar police station under sec. 377 of IPC read with sec. 4 of POCSO Act.Sec. 377 of the IPC provides for “unnatural offences” whereas sec. 4 of the POCSO Act provides for the punishment for penetrative sexual assault. The complainant, father of a seven year old son, registered the FIR after his son told him that the accused, resident of the same building, had sodomised him after he left for work. Later, the complainant had found his son’s underwear soaked in blood. The final report of the police stated that there was enough evidence on record to proceed against the accused person. The accused had thereafter filed a petition in the HC for quashing of the FIR on the ground that due to the “intervention of elders of the society and friends” the parties have decided to amicably put an end to the disputes and differences. After looking at the facts of the present case, the Court was of the view that both sec. 377 of IPC and sec. 4 of the POCSO Act are non compoundable offences and that the court while exercising its power under sec. 482 CrPC cannot quash criminal proceedings for non compoundable offences. At the outset, the Court relied on the judgment of Shiji & Ors v. Radhika & Anr reported as (2011) 10 SCC 705 wherein the Court held that “In the exercise of the power under Section 482 and while dealing with a plea that the dispute has been settled, the High Court must have due regard to the nature and gravity of the offence. Heinous and serious offences involving mental depravity or offences such as murder, rape and dacoity cannot appropriately be quashed though the victim or the family of the victim has settled the dispute. Such offences are, truly speaking, not private in nature but have a serious impact upon society. The decision to continue with the trial in such cases is founded on the overriding element of public interest in punishing persons for serious offences.” In view of this, the Court held that in the instant case, the victim being a seven year old boy has been a victim of grave offences committed by the petitioner accused. “The POCSO Act was enacted only because sexual offences against children were not being adequately addressed by the existing laws and the purpose of the Act was to provide protection to children from sexual assault and sexual harassment and for safeguarding the interest and well being of children. Permitting such offences to be compromised and quashing FIRs will not secure the interest of justice.” The court held. Furthermore, the Court went ahead to observe that an offence under Section 377 IPC committed on a child of seven years or an offence under Section 4 of the POCSO Act shows the mental depravity of the offender and cannot be said to be private in nature. “We cannot lose sight of the fact that the accused is being prosecuted for an offence that shocks the value system of a society and this is not a matter that can be permitted to be settled as a compoundable minor offence. Deterrence to others committing similar offence is a must and they cannot get a signal that anything and everything can be compromised.” Bench held. Therefore, the Court held that the FIR cannot be quashed merely because the father of the victim has decided to enter into a compromise with the petitioner/accused. “This court is desisting from imposing any costs on the parties for filing a petition under Section 482 CrPC for quashing of FIR in respect of a heinous offence against a small child on the ground that the parties have entered into a compromise as it will cause serious prejudice to the rights of the petitioner.” The bench observed while dismissing the petition.

Delphi girls’ double murder: Police explain mysterious change in person of interest sketch

first_imgIndiana State Police(DELPHI, Ind.) — The Indiana State Police is now clarifying why the first sketch of the person of interest in the mysterious Delphi double murder looks so different from the man in the new suspect sketch released this week: they are two different people.The man seen in the initial person of interest sketch — who was believed to be in his 40s or 50s — is not currently a person of interest in the case, police said Wednesday.Investigators want to the public to focus on this different, younger man pictured in a new sketch released Monday. The suspect is believed to be between 18 and 40 years old, but may appear younger than his age, police said.This young, unknown man is being sought in the killings of eighth-graders Abby Williams, 13, and Libby German, 14, who were killed on a hiking path on Feb. 13, 2017.The shocking crime has devastated the residents of Delphi, a tight-knit community of nearly 3,000 people.The killer is believed to currently or previously live in Delphi, work in town or visit on a regular basis, Indiana State Police Superintendent Douglas Carter announced Monday.“We believe you are hiding in plain sight” and even “may be in this room,” Carter said at a news conference.“We likely have interviewed you or someone close to you,” Carter said.Delphi residents “should reflect back on people they know in the community that look similar to the sketch released on April 22nd, especially if that person has changed their appearance since the murders,” state police said in a statement on Wednesday.This new suspect sketch “is representative of the face of the person captured in the video on Liberty German’s cell phone as he was walking on the high bridge” the day of the crime, police said.In 2017, police released a grainy image from Libby’s phone showing someone on the trail the day the girls went missing. On Monday, police revealed a new, brief video clip showing that suspect walking on the bridge near where the girls were last seen.“When you see the video, watch the person’s mannerisms as they walk,” Carter said Monday. “Do you recognize the mannerisms as being someone you might know?”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Getting around Antarctica: new high-resolution mappings of the grounded and freely-floating boundaries of the Antarctic ice sheet created for the International Polar Year.

first_imgThe boundary of grounded ice and the location of ice transitioning to a freely floating state are mapped at 15-m resolution around the entire continent of Antarctica. These data products are produced by participants of the International Polar Year project ASAID using customized software combining Landsat-7 imagery and ICESat laser altimetry. The grounded ice boundary is 53 610 km long; 74% of it abuts to floating ice shelves or outlet glaciers, 19% is adjacent to open or sea-ice covered ocean, and 7% of the boundary are land terminations with bare rock. Elevations along each line are selected from 6 candidate digital elevation models: two created from the input ICESat laser altimetry and Landsat data, two from stereo satellite imagery, and two from compilations of primarily radar altimetry. Elevation selection and an assignment of confidence in the elevation value are based on agreement with ICESat elevation values and shape of the surface inferred from the Landsat imagery. Elevations along the freely-floating boundary (called the hydrostatic line) are converted to ice thicknesses by applying a firn-correction factor and a flotation criterion. The relationship between the seaward offset of the hydrostatic line from the grounding line only weakly matches a prediction based on beam theory. Airborne data are used to validate the technique of grounding line mapping, elevation selection and ice thickness derivation. The mapped products along with the customized software to generate them and a variety of intermediate products are available from the National Snow and Ice Data Center.last_img read more

DNA metabarcoding as a marine conservation and management tool: A circumpolar examination of fishery discards in the diet of threatened albatrosses

first_imgAlmost all of the world’s fisheries overlap spatially and temporally with foraging seabirds, with impacts that range from food supplementation (through scavenging behind vessels), to resource competition and incidental mortality. The nature and extent of interactions between seabirds and fisheries vary, as does the level and efficacy of management and mitigation. Seabird dietary studies provide information on prey diversity and often identify species that are also caught in fisheries, providing evidence of linkages which can be used to improve ecosystem based management of fisheries. However, species identification of fish can be difficult with conventional dietary techniques. The black-browed albatross (Thalassarche melanophris) has a circumpolar distribution and has suffered major population declines due primarily to incidental mortality in fisheries. We use DNA metabarcoding of black-browed albatross scats to investigate their fish prey during the breeding season at six sites across their range, over two seasons. We identify the spatial and temporal diversity of fish in their diets and overlaps with fisheries operating in adjacent waters. Across all sites, 51 fish species from 33 families were identified, with 23 species contributing >10% of the proportion of samples or sequences at any site. There was extensive geographic variation but little inter-annual variability in fish species consumed. Several fish species that are not easily accessible to albatross, but are commercially harvested or by-caught, were detected in the albatross diet during the breeding season. This was particularly evident at the Falkland Islands and Iles Kerguelen where higher fishery catch amounts (or discard amounts where known) corresponded to higher occurrence of these species in diet samples. This study indicates ongoing interactions with fisheries through consumption of fishery discards, increasing the risk of seabird mortality. Breeding success was higher at sites where fisheries discards were detected in the diet, highlighting the need to minimize discarding to reduce impacts on the ecosystem. DNA metabarcoding provides a valuable non-invasive tool for assessing the fish prey of seabirds across broad geographic ranges. This provides an avenue for fishery resource managers to assess compliance of fisheries with discard policies and the level of interaction with scavenging seabirds.last_img read more
