The FTSE 100 is at its lowest for six months. I’d buy these FTSE 100 stocks now

Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! The FTSE 100 is at its lowest for six months. I’d buy these FTSE 100 stocks now In the last week, the FTSE 100 declined 5%, mainly due to rising coronavirus cases and fears (now realised) of a second national lockdown. This means that it’s currently at its lowest level since March. But despite the difficult economic climate, this has definitely created a number of opportunities with certain FTSE 100 stocks. These three are my current favourites and I believe could see large gains throughout November.A pharmaceutical giantGlaxoSmithKline (LSE: GSK) has always been seen as a great defensive stock, but even so, it hasn’t been able to avoid the negative effects of the pandemic. In fact, in its recent third-quarter results, its sales fell 8% from last year to £8.6bn. Its EPS also fell by 20%. This was mainly due to a reduction of sales in its vaccines 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…The FTSE 100 stock has lost around 28% of its value this year and to me, looks oversold. For example, its consumer healthcare sector has performed well and in the last quarter it has received three regulatory approvals for different treatments. This bodes well for the firm’s future.Finally, a 5.9% dividend yield would potentially attract income investors, especially in the current climate of dividend cuts. I also cannot see a dividend cut imminent, and as such, I think its current cheap valuation offers an opportunity to buy the stock.This FTSE 100 stock looks far too cheapBAE Systems (LSE: BA) is another stock that looks way too cheap to me. In the past week, the defence and aerospace company has fallen by 12%. But this decline has mainly been due to the general decline of the FTSE 100 and, at under 400p, it now looks oversold.In fact, the stock has remained fairly resilient to the pandemic. For example, in the first-half trading update, sales actually increased 4% to £9.9bn. Unfortunately, the firm did see EPS decline 15%, but this still represents a very strong performance in challenging economic conditions.Following this recent decline, I therefore believe that BAE Systems offers an exceptional buy at its current price. With geopolitical tensions high, defence spending is sure to increase in the next few years. As a result, I reckon that this stock will be able to thrive in the near future.The drinks giantThe final FTSE 100 stock that I believe offers exceptional value at the moment is Diageo (LSE: DGE). The drinks maker has fallen over 20% this year, and despite disruption due to the pandemic, sales have remained strong.In fact, the firm’s strong position was demonstrated recently when it bought the gin and vodka distillery Chase, expanding its UK gin business. Its $610m acquisition of Aviation Gin last month was further demonstration of the group’s strong financial position. I also believe that it indicates that further growth is on the cards.As such, I think that now is an excellent time to buy this FTSE 100 stock at a discounted price. Of course, the pandemic will continue to place pressure on profits, but it also looks in a strong position to thrive following the crisis.

Government rescinds licences of newspaper and TV station owned by opposition supporter

first_img KuwaitMiddle East – North Africa Popular blogger charged with blasphemy News New Cyber Crimes Law restricts free expression and targets online activists Help by sharing this information February 23, 2015 Find out more News KuwaitMiddle East – North Africa News Follow the news on Kuwait Receive email alerts January 21, 2016 Find out more RSF_en August 7, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Government rescinds licences of newspaper and TV station owned by opposition supporter News Organisation Courts uphold newspaper’s closure, increase blogger’s jail term September 5, 2014 Find out more Announcing the decision to rescind the licences of the Alam Al-Youm newspaper and Al-Youm TV on 22 July, the information ministry cited failure to respect the conditions for obtaining licences.Owner’s nationalityOne of the reasons given by the ministry was the fact their owner, Ahmed Jabr Al-Shemmari, was not a Kuwaiti citizen, in violation of the press and broadcasting code. Article 3 of the code says that anyone seeking a media licence must have Kuwaiti citizenship.The cabinet had stripped Shemmari of his citizenship the day before in what former opposition parliamentarians called an act of “political revenge” and an example of how the authorities persecute the opposition.The cabinet paved the way for this decision a week earlier when, on the grounds of combatting instability, it adopted a decree allowing it to withdraw the citizenship of any naturalized Kuwaiti deemed to pose a threat to national security.Adoption of the decree was based on sections 4 and 5 of article 13 of the 1959 Nationality Law, which says citizenship may be withdrawn from any naturalized citizen endangering the state’s political, economic or social interests or belonging to a “foreign political entity.”Four other naturalized Kuwaitis, including former opposition parliamentarian Abdullah Al-Barghash, were also stripped of their Kuwaiti citizenship on 21 July. Human rights lawyer Mohamed Al-Hamidi said it was the first time in Kuwait’s history that citizens has been deprived of their nationality without a court order.The legality of the move is clearly questionable. Article 15 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights says: “No one shall be arbitrarily deprived of his nationality nor denied the right to change his nationality.” And article 11b of Kuwait’s Nationality Law says a naturalized citizen automatically abandons any other nationality.“By arbitrarily stripping Shemmari of his Kuwaiti citizenship, the authorities have also withdrawn his ability to have media licence,” said Reporters Without Borders assistant research director Virginie Dangles. “We condemn the unjust nature of this decision and the Kuwaiti government’s persecution of this opposition figure.”Dangles added: “It seems that any pretext will suffice to gag opposition outlets. It is vital that the Kuwaiti authorities rescind these measures, which are a flagrant violation of the country’s obligations to respect fundamental freedoms.”Failure to reorganizeAnother reason given by the ministry for closing Al-Youm TV was its failure to carry out organizational changes requested by the ministry two months earlier under article 4 of the 2007 press and broadcasting law (Law No. 61). However, article 10 subsection 4 of the same law states that, while a news media’s licence may be withdrawn if the appointment of its CEO does not satisfy the stipulated legal criteria, the news media is allowed two months to bring itself into compliance.The information ministry already tried to rescind Al-Youm TV’s licence in 2012 under article 10 subsection 4 on the grounds that Shemmari was not a full-time CEO. The company that owns the station appealed against the decision and a court ruled in its favour on the grounds of procedural irregularities.Alam Al-Youm and Al-Youm TV were previously suspended in April and June for defying a ban to carry information about possible coup preparations in Kuwait.Kuwait fell 13 places in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index and is now ranked 91st out of 180 countries. to go further Information ministry gives two reasons for closureslast_img read more

Mayor Tornek also served as Pasadena’s Planning Director for three years and helped to rewrite the zoning ordinance, the General Plan, and establish the redevelopment plan for Old Pasadena.The group says during Tornek’s first term his key priorities included protecting Pasadena’s neighborhoods from overdevelopment, supporting public schools, public safety, and homelessness. He also advocated for the passing of Measure I and J campaigns to bring additional funds to city services and to public schools. During his tenure, the 710 Freeway extension plan was finally terminated, a major victory for Pasadena, that was decades in the making.“I am very grateful for the ANCA endorsement. The Pasadena Armenian community makes a vital contribution to our City in so many ways and my relationship with ANCA is critical in reinforcing the connection.” Tornek said.The Armenian National Committee of America – Pasadena Chapter is the oldest, largest, and most influential Armenian-American grassroots organization of its kind within the City of Pasadena. Founded in 1979, the Pasadena ANCA advocates for the social, economic, cultural, and political rights of the city’s thriving Armenian-American community and promotes increased civic service and participation at the grassroots and public policy levels.Patatian received the group’s support based on his platform to provide secure streets, accessible government, financial stability, education equity and revitalized neighborhoods. Bo’s impressive involvement in local and state governance spans over two decades and he has worked for several members of California Legislature. Bo currently serves as a City Commissioner as the Mayor’s appointee to the Pasadena City Library Commission and is also a member of Pasadena’s 2020 Census Complete Count Committee.“I am beyond honored and humbled by the faith placed in me by the Board of Directors of the Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA) of Pasadena Chapter and I am appreciative of their vote of confidence and official endorsement,” Patatian said. “Having long served alongside the leadership of this venerable organization, I know firsthand how dedicated they are and the amount of time and energy they commit to pursuing the well being of the collective interests of our local Pasadena Armenian-American Community and its residents at large.”In the District 6 race, the group opted to endorse Steve Madison.“Councilmember Madison has an understanding of the issues that concern the Armenian American community in his district and the City of Pasadena overall, as well as the awareness and insight on how to improve on those issues,” Yepremian said.Madison was first elected in 1999 to represent District 6, and was reelected four times since then. Madison has served on the Council’s Economic Development & Technology Committee (EDTECH), Public Safety Committee and Legislative Policy Committee, the Pasadena Center Operating Company Board, the Multimodal Operations and Development Entity Board, the Youth Development and Violence Prevention Task Force. He also served on the council’s special committee overseeing the recovery of over $5 million in embezzled funds. He is also one of Pasadena’s three appointees to and former President of the Burbank/Glendale/Pasadena Airport Authority Commission, which oversees the Bob Hope Airport in Burbank.Madison has been a strong advocate on Armenian American issues in Pasadena and in 2013 voted to approve the Armenian Genocide Memorial at Pasadena’s Memorial Park.“I am deeply honored to receive an endorsement for my re-election from the Pasadena chapter of ANCA,” Madison said. “Pasadena is proud to have a vibrant, active and important ArmenianAmerican community and with our sister city in Armenia, Vanadzor, as well, issues of importance to the Armenian-American community are very important to me and the City of Pasadena. I intend to work very hard in my campaign to deserve the support of my friends at ANCA’s Pasadena Chapter.”In the March 3 election candidates will need more than 50 percent of the vote win the election. If no one reaches that benchmark the top two candidates will face off nine months later in a runoff election on Nov. 3.“We cannot stress enough the importance of this election and how critical it is that each registered voter within the City of Pasadena do their civic duty and vote,” said Shoghig Yepremian, ANCA Pasadena chapter chair. “We particularly encourage though, that all of our fellow Armenian-American voters, not only vote themselves, but also encourage all of their friends, family and associates to do so as well and furthermore to do all they can to show their support for our endorsed candidates by donating to their campaigns and volunteering their time and energies to ensure that they are successfully elected on March 3rd, 2020.”The Armenian National Committee of America – Pasadena Chapter is the oldest, largest and most influential Armenian-American grassroots organization of its kind within the City of Pasadena. Founded in 1979, the Pasadena ANCA advocates for the social, economic, cultural, and political rights of the city’s thriving Armenian-American community and promotes increased civic service and participation at the grassroots and public policy levels.In October,  ANCA endorsed District 4 City Council candidate Joe Baghdadlian.

These declines are real and we’re grateful for the choices made and the work done by everyone — individuals and businesses — that is making this possible.”Ferrer said the daily average testing-positivity rate over the past seven days has dropped to about 3%.“That’s actually the lowest it’s ever been since we’ve been offering testing in the community,” Ferrer said. “So yes, testing is down, but community transmission is also down as well, and that also drives a reduced demand for testing — less people have symptoms, less people feel sick, less people feel like they’ve had an exposure.”She noted that at the beginning of January, the testing-positivity average was about 20%.The county on Monday reported another 32 COVID-19 deaths, along with 987 new cases. The numbers tend to be artificially low on Mondays due to lags in reporting from the weekend.The new deaths increased the countywide death toll since the start of the pandemic to 21,467. The total number of cases rose to 1,192,895.According to state figures — which are typically a day ahead of county numbers — there were 1,502 COVID-19 patients in L.A. County hospitals as of Monday, well below the peak of more than 8,000 patients in early January.There were 475 people being treated in intensive care units for COVID.As a result of lower demand, COVID testing is now being offered without appointments at all county- and Los Angeles city-operated testing sites, although people can still make appointments if they wish.The California Department of Public Health announced 3,516 statewide infections and 215 additional fatalities on Monday.In all, state public health officials had documented 3,479,078 infections and 52,194 deaths.The state’s average positivity rate over the prior week stood at 2.3%, while the 14-day rate was 2.6%.As of Monday, L.A.County represented 34% of California’s COVID-19 cases and 41% of the state’s deaths.City News Service contributed to this report.

According to Craig Poulton, CEO of private flood insurer Poulton Associates, continuing to build in flood risk zones is “insane.”“As all of these named storms have proven in one way or another, we simply on a local level and a national level are not responding to the new reality,” said Poulton on Insurance Business. “We need to recognize that we have to stop putting lives and values in the way of storms, and in the way of flooding in particular.”According to Poulton, the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) is a failed system that doesn’t address the risk faced by millions of Americans.“The insurance is too inexpensive, and the NFIP and federal government don’t mandate that municipal governments take the right steps” Poulton told Insurance Business. “The problem with that is folks in any given locality believe they will never be flooded, hence they don’t buy flood insurance unless they’re forced to because they have a mortgage.”Lawmakers are taking some steps to update the NFIP. For example, Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith is proposing an update to the Program which aims to address the multiple extensions the NFIP has undergone with a long-term extension plan.In her letter to Senate Banking Committee Chairman Michael Crapo and Ranking Member Sherrod Brown, Hyde-Smith puts forth several options to address affordability issues among low and middle-income policy holders and debt issues within the NFIP. “We’re trying to flip the script on mitigation projects, from being reactionary to being proactive.  This is the first bill that provides a significant amount of real money for pre-disaster mitigation, which would give taxpayers a better return on investment.  It is far more expensive to rebuild after a disaster than it is to do everything you can to protect yourself beforehand,” Hyde-Smith said in a statement.

Woman calls injuries from hospital car crash more painful than childbirth

first_imgABC NewsBy WILL REEVE, ABC NewsA woman lucky to be alive after being severely injured in June when a car crashed into a major Atlanta hospital spoke out for the first time, recalling the terrifying details and painful recovery process. Kai Bailey, 29, was tending to a friend in the emergency room — sitting outside the ER due to COVID-19 protocols — at Piedmont Hospital when a Mercedes-Benz SUV crashed into the lobby, leaving one person dead and others injured.“I looked up from my phone. There was a red SUV coming towards me as if it had been hit,” Bailey told ABC News. “I was running initially from [the] red SUV not knowing that the Mercedes was going to then run into the hospital, as I’m running into the hospital.” A second dark gray vehicle, as seen on video, rammed past the red SUV outside and into the lobby area where Bailey was at the time.“I’ve never been in so much pain in my life. Not even a mother, not even childbirth, could compare here to the pain that I feel,” she explained.Bailey’s hips and pelvis were broken in the accident. She was unable to sit up or walk until she underwent extensive therapy at a rehab facility. In a statement to ABC News, Atlanta Police public affairs officer Steve Avery said the crash is still under investigation, but “at this time no charges are anticipated.” Bailey’s attorney, Jane Lamberti, told ABC News, “I have never seen a case where there has been a death or a serious injury, and the driver wasn’t even given a citation.” Bailey plans to file a lawsuit against the hospital, but for now, she said all she wants is the chance to hold her daughter without pain.“She also knows that mommy is hurting. She does a great job was trying to help me,” Bailey said. And despite the physical struggle, the mother said she has become stronger by the outpouring of support from her family. “It’s been very good to be home — I enjoy being home with my family and friends,” she said. “All of my family has just stepped in to help me out.” Bailey has moved in with her mother as she continues to heal and recover. Piedmont Hospital told ABC News it would not “comment on any pending claims or investigations as a matter of policy” but it continues “to express our deepest sympathies to the patients, families, and staff who were impacted by this accident and its aftermath.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Club’s opening hours a-Bridged by Council

first_imgOxford Council have published a provisional decision to reduce the opening hours of popular student club The Bridge, following violence around the venue. The club could formerly stay open until 3am, but under new regulations will be forced to shut an hour earlier for a three month period.The Council stated on their website before Tuesday’s hearing, “Thames Valley Police are seeking a review based on the grounds the operators are not upholding their obligations under the four objectives of the Licensing Act most notably the prevention of crime and disorder.”Police licensing officer Alex Bloomfield said the decision to request a review was made after an incident at Halloween. The club has had many problems with disorderly and anti-social behaviour outside the venue. In October, four men were arrested after a brawl outside The Bridge, which saw two people being taken to hospital, one with serious head injuries.The Council said that the committee questioned whether the problems were circumstantial or caused by poor running of the premises and said that the Committee came to a decision based upon the evidence provided by both parties.The news has been met with disappointment from students. St Hugh’s first year Teddy Mears said, “Going to Bridge on a Thursday is an integral part of the week for any St Hugh’s student, and it’s a good way to get to know everyone at college, so it would be a shame if it were to close earlier.”Phil Davidson, the manager of the club, told Cherwell, “although we have attended a recent review of the club’s licence no finite decision was reached as we indicated that we wished to appeal the panel’s findings. Until such time as that appeal has been heard our opening hours remain the same as they are now.“Our view is that we fail to see how an hour lopped off our trading times will have any impact on perceived problems at the club, particularly as according to the police statistics over 50% of our ‘problems’ relate to lost/stolen items.”last_img read more
