As far as Sunrisers is concerned, it’s too early for us to comment. Because, it was, just which has happened the day before yesterday (Saturday). We will wait for the decision of Cricket Australia,” VVS Laxman had told national news agency PTI.“The information available at the moment is very limited. So, we will wait for further information.

In normal, non-Covid-19 times, housebuilder shares can offer income investors some pretty spectacular dividends. As lockdowns ease, sales are returning. That means the conditions for housebuilders to pay those dividends are improving.Times reports on 6 July that Chancellor Rishi Sunak is preparing to cut stamp duty in the autumn also saw UK housebuilder shares soar.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…FTSE shares Redrow, Taylor Wimpey, Persimmon, and Barratt Homes (LSE:BDEV) each jumped more than 6.2% on the news.Sunak will quadruple the existing tax threshold from £125,000 to £500,000, the Times reported. The temporary stamp duty holiday would stimulate the housing market by reducing costs for buyers.So which FTSE 100 housebuilder shares just leapt to the top of my buy list?Avoid theseThere are too many troubles hanging over Persimmon for me to recommend it, to be honest. The previous CEO, Dave Jenkinson, only lasted 15 months at the helm, far too short for a FTSE 100 company of this size.And Jenkinson came in off the back of a shareholder revolt over a £75m bonus for the man he replaced. There’s repeated trouble at the top here and that makes me too nervous. Then there’s the poor quality of its homes, lambasted as shoddy and possibly unsafe by a 2019 independent review. A cursory Google will reveal stunningly high levels of customer complaints, too.Next in the list of housebuilder shares to consider is FTSE 250-listed Redrow. The Wales-headquartered company certainly isn’t in as poor straits as Persimmon. However, a 30 June trading statement said the group ended the financial year with £126m of debt, compared to £124m of net cash in 2019. Covid-19 had a “profound” impact, which is not surprising really, with forward sales expected to be “substantially” lower.Turnover at Redrow fell to £1.34bn from £2.11bn last year, which will take time to scrape back.Build quality reviews are mixed, too. I’d expect management to improve the company reputation before I’d make any investment.That niggling net debt disqualifies it from my watchlist and in any case there are is one much better option for FTSE 100 housebuilder shares.Barratt HomesIn a trading update on 6 July, Barratt Homes revealed completions had dropped by a third in lockdown, but orders were flying in. High customer interest since reopening sees the BDEV order book at 14,236 homes. That’s a value of £3.24bn, 19% ahead of the same period last year.Pre-crash in February 2020, retail investors in housebuilder shares loved Barratt, with prices running as high as 878p. Today, even with the 7% Rishi bump, the share price is still 40% cheaper. On 25 March, Barratt CEO David Thomas followed many FTSE 100 shares by suspending the dividend. The 9.8p per share payout would have cost the company £100m.Even without the dividend — which I think its safe to say will return — there is the backbone of a good business here. Net cash is £305m and the balance sheet looks strong.Looking further ahead there’s cracking value and growth to be had. Forward price-to-earnings stands at just 10, which is well under the FTSE 100 average. Earnings per share are expected to grow at 9.1% in the next 12 months, and the share price hasn’t leapt too far ahead either.With a P/E growth ratio of 1.2, I think there’s quality on offer in spades.

Zero tolerance! Abusers out!

first_imgThe following editorial was written by gender non-binary and women comrades of Workers World Party.The progressive movement has come a long way from its shameful history of gender abuse. There is still a gargantuan mountain to climb toward socialism, gender equity and justice. We link arms and will continue to climb together.  We must resoundingly affirm that we will protect each other from racism, sexism, homophobia, ableism and abuse. If we are to succeed, abusers and their enablers must not be welcome in our spaces or in our movement. In consulting the 2010 essay, “Why Misogynists Make Great Informants” by Black gender activist and academic Courtney Desiree Morris, we find that the danger is twofold. Misogynists and abusers chase people of oppressed gender out of the movement. In fear for our safety and in recognition that trans and cis women, trans men, lesbians, queer folks and gender- nonconforming individuals’ lives and contributions are not valued the same as cis (het) men’s, we are wary of entering spaces where we are not supported. Losing comrades in the movement is always a detriment, and losing the unique perspective that gender-oppressed comrades contribute to the struggle is a road to failure. By accepting abusers into movement spaces we allow a fertile ground for state infiltration that takes advantage of the havoc abusers create. People of oppressed gender have the right to defend themselves from abuse, homophobia and misogyny. We have the right to hold organizations accountable that do not support our self-determination. Spaces and organizations that do not take this into account create an untenable situation for the 21st century. Women and others of oppressed gender are expected to silence ourselves and put up with abuse in an effort to build unity. Unity for who? Not unity with women and others of oppressed gender who have every right to insist on their inclusion in the movement. After all, we are also struggling for liberation. We are the backbone of the struggle for liberation. Abusers and their enablers will see this insistence for safety as proof that we are not putting the movement first. We are told to “close our eyes and think of socialism.” But what socialism can we visualize when we cannot be sure it will prioritize our safety and contributions?  We can only see a form of socialism that prioritizes our safety and contributions.Under a Trump administration that is attacking the bodies of women, trans and GNC people, people of oppressed gender have a rage that is growing. It is a righteous rage. Our fears that our comrades and allies in the movement do not have our back is made manifest every time an abuser is allowed to remain in our movement. While transformative justice is an important model to develop, it cannot be practiced in an environment where women and people of oppressed gender feel under physical threat. It cannot be developed in an environment where we feel like our comrades and allies do not have our backs. It cannot be developed in an environment where abusers do not take responsibility for their actions. Until there is unity around removing abusers from our movement, there can be no discussion of how to bring them back as healed individuals.

Banks school to host ‘a family reunion’

first_img Wilda Steele and Dick Barr attended Banks grammar school in the 1930s. They will be among the Banks School alumni who will share the stories of the early days at the school during the Banks School (Family) Reunion from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Banks School on Nov. 3. All Banks School alumni and students and their families are encouraged to attend.Excitement is running rampant in the usually sleepy town of Banks.It’s been that way since the plans for a Banks School Reunion were made public.“We like to say that everybody’s who’s anybody will be at the Banks School Reunion on Saturday, Nov. 3,” said Charity Maulden, president of the sponsoring Banks School PTO. “We don’t say that in a bragging way. It’s just that anyone who ever attended Banks School is a part of a great extended family. So the Banks School Reunion is more than a school reunion. It’s a family reunion.” Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Skip By Jaine Treadwell Latest Stories A highlight of the “family reunion” will be the gathering tents for the different decades of Banks School classes.The classes, going back to the 1920s, will get together in their tents to visit with each other and share stories and tales of their days at Banks School. The gatherings will be times of telling and listening.Maulden said those who want to know more about the history and lore of Banks School will be welcome to sit in on any of the gatherings and enjoy the stories being told.

Dough art is an ancient craft…. read more Book Nook to reopen Print Article Grade five held classes on the stage and grade six on the floor.“There was a folding door that went across the room and it was pulled,” Steele said. “Grades seven, eight and nine met all together behind the folding door. There was no kindergarten. We didn’t know about anything like that.”Barr said the conditions at Banks School were rather primitive by today’s standards.“We had an old coal-burning stove to keep us halfway warm in the winter and widows that raised so we could stay halfway cool in the summer,” he said. “We didn’t have water fountains. There was a metal water cooler with a spicket that sat on the back steps. When you wanted a drink of water, you made a cup out of notebook paper and that’s what you drank out of.”Barr said a “feature” of country schools back then was the outdoor toilets.“We had one set of toilets for the boys and one for the girls,” he said, laughing. “The toilets were open and they weren’t one seaters. The had several holes.”Recess was a fun time at school and the children would jump rope and play hopscotch and games like two-eyed cat and “Big guinea, little guinea, all squat.”Times were not easy back in the 1930s and a lot of children came to school with nothing for their lunch except at cold biscuit and syrup in a jar.“They would poke a hole in the biscuit and pour it full of syrup,” Barr said. “That would be all they had to eat at school that day and probably didn’t have much more at home.”Steele said that some children would be so hungry that they would steal lunches from the other children who were more fortunate.Barr said that as he got older, he would be lucky enough to have a nickel a week to spend.“But you could buy a Baby Ruth for a penny,” he said.When it was time to go to junior high school, the Banks students had to go to Troy to take a test to see if they were ready for such a big jump in their early education.“I don’t know if the children in Troy had to take the test but all of the children in the county schools did,” Steele said.When Steele reached the seventh grade, the size of the eighth and ninth grade classes had dwindled.“So many of the students had to stay out of school to work on the farm,” she said. “I think there were only about three students left in the eighth grade.”Something really remarkable happened when Steele was in eighth grade. A brand new schoolhouse, a brick schoolhouse, was being built.“Because the new school was going up, we had to have classes in a cotton warehouse,” Steele said. “We had children scattered all over the community.”For the young boys, school in a warehouse was a great adventure.“The warehouse had bales of cotton stacked all around,” Barr said. “Chickens would get in the bales and lay eggs.”Chasing chickens was an impromptu game but Barr didn’t say what the 13-year-old boys did with the eggs.One student incident happened on April Fool’s Day.“We told the principal if he didn’t take us to the woods we were all going to run away,” Steele said. “He took us to the woods and we got to have a picnic.”Banks School had a boys’ basketball team but the girls could only stand on the sidelines and watch.“We played basketball outside on a dirt court and we had a pretty good team,” Barr said. “We also played tennis, but not as a team. We just had a racquet and a ball and a net to hit it over.”But, school in the new brick building was a lot different from the school days in the old wooden building.“Mrs. Lola Lawson was the principal and she ran the school like a military school,” Barr said. “We had to change classes and that was all new to us. When the school bell rang to dismiss class, we had to stand up and march out of the room row by row. Like we were soldiers.”But the students took great pride in their new school building.“We had a big auditorium and we had assemble programs every Friday,” Steele said.But trouble brewed in the new auditorium.“There were these little rubber pads on the bottom of the seats that folded down,” Barr said. “Some of the boys pulled them off and cut them in little strips and threw them at each other.”That did not sit well with Principal Lawson.“She got us all in the auditorium and made us sit there without saying a word until the ones who cut the pads and threw them owned up to it,” Barr said. “She sat on the stage and watched us.”It took several days for the 27 boys to own up and, when they did, the principal sent them out to the sugarberry bush for switches.Steele and Barr said the there was no sparring the rod in the early days of Banks School.“We were serious about learning,” Steele said. “We were good students and appreciated the opportunity to learn.”And, it’s still that way at Banks School. In the second decade of the 21st century just as in the second decade of the 20th century, the students are good students and appreciate the opportunity to learn. And all of the Banks School family will come together on Nov. 3 to renew friendships, make new ones and tell stories and listen to stories being told, much like all “families” do when they have a rare chance to all be together. Banks school to host ‘a family reunion’ The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Wilda Steele laughingly said she and her brother, Dick Barr, Jr., just might be the most “storied” of all the Banks School alumni.Steele taught at Banks School from 1960-1980 and will share stories from the “Golden Rule” school days but, more importantly, she also enrolled in first grade at Banks School in 1929. Her brother followed a year later. Both completed their “grammar school” and junior high school educations at Banks School.“My first grade teacher was Alma Eppison and what I remember most about first grade was sitting on the reading bench and watching the pipe from the coal burning stove fall on Knox Green’s head,” Steele said, laughing. “Knox said, ‘Oh!
