I believe one of the best ways to capitalise on the stock market recovery is to buy dirt-cheap shares. These shares, which look cheap today, may benefit from improved investor sentiment as the market outlook improves.Of course, this isn’t guaranteed. There’s always going to be a level of unpredictability for equity prices, and there’s never any guarantee that a cheap stock will return to levels it reached previously. As such, the strategy may not be suitable for all investors. 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…However, I’m comfortable with the level of risk involved. That’s why I would buy these dirt cheap shares outlined below to capitalise on the stock market recovery today. Dirt-cheap sharesWhen the government announced that it aims to remove all coronavirus restrictions by the summer earlier this week, investors and consumers seemed to breathe a sigh of relief. Holiday bookings jumped, and so did demand for shares that have exposure to the UK economy. That includes shares in companies such as Great Portland Estates (LSE: GPOR) and British Land (LSE: BLND). This is an incredibly positive development for these businesses. Both the real estate investment trusts (REITs) have suffered a significant decline in rent collection and property values over the past 12 months. This has severely impacted investor sentiment towards both groups.Unfortunately, the commercial property market is unlikely to recover overnight. It could be some time before property valuations, and rents return to the level seen in 2019. A full recovery may never happen. That suggests these businesses will continue to face uncertainty in the near term. There could also be further pain to come if the pandemic leads to a permanent shift in working arrangements. Great Portland and British Land both have billions of pounds invested in UK offices. Stock market recoveryHowever, looking past these risks, I see some great opportunities for these dirt-cheap shares as we advance. The pandemic has presented an opportunity for well-financed property companies to snap up bargains. What’s more, as retailers have collapsed, it has freed up space for landlords to turn unused space into more flexible offerings. This could be a net positive in the long run. Then there’s the valuation of these firms to consider. Both Great Portland and British Land are trading at a discount of between 14% and 26% to their last reported net asset values. That suggests that, in the case of Great Portland, an investor could buy the whole company, sell off its assets and generate a double-digit profit.This is only a rough guide as to how much the company is worth, but I think it demonstrates clearly how undervalued this business is at present. Although published net asset values can move due to valuation changes both up and down. So that’s something I will be keeping an eye on going forward.Nevertheless, despite the risks these businesses face, I think these two dirt-cheap shares could be an excellent way to play the stock market recovery. That’s why I have acquired the investments for my portfolio.  Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shareslast_img read more

The date marks the events that unfolded during the New London, Texas school incident in 1937 that led to the widespread odorization of natural gas and an increased emphasis on industry safety. And, since safety is a vital aspect to natural gas distribution across the country, APGA believed there was no better date to recognize the natural gas utility workers who commit to safety every day.2020 marked the tenth consecutive year LANGD was named a winner of the APGA’s Safety Management Excellence Award for consistently operating safely and at the highest levels. The organization was also awarded the APGA Gold System Operational Achievement Recognition (SOAR) Award – the highest honor in the natural gas industry – for excellence in the operation of their natural gas utility in 2020. In 2020 LANGD also passed the Florida Public Service Commission annual audit with no significant violations of Commission rules.This year, LANGD will recognize its natural gas utility field workers at its “Taking Care of Business Everyday” luncheon. At the event, District General Manager & CEO, Samuel Davis Jr., will thank each of LANGD’s natural gas utility workers by presenting them with a photo of Utility Workers, gift cards and t-shirts as an expression of the organization’s gratitude, and we will celebrate the team’s excellent safety audits and award wins.Now serving over 25,000 customers in the Apopka, Clermont and Winter Garden areas, LANGD is committed to providing safe and reliable natural gas service to every home and business it serves.

Ronan O’Gara sinks Saints with injury time drop goal

first_imgSunday Nov 13, 2011 Ronan O’Gara sinks Saints with injury time drop goal Heineken Cup rugby has delivered once again as the first round of matches have had fans on the edge of their seats all around Europe, none more so than in the Munster vs Northampton thriller on Saturday night. Munster were trailing with time up, before Ronan O’Gara pulled the trigger.Saints looked like they were on their way to a well deserved away win as they tackled everything in sight in those final few minutes, actually driving Munster back on more than one occasion. The home side kept at it though, keeping possesion for over five minutes and 40 phases, all the time confident in the knowledge that they had O’Gara patiently waiting for the right moment.When it came, following another great surge of momentum from Doug Howlett – who scored a wonderful try earlier in the match – O’Gara took the chance without a sniff.“It was something special. The belief in the group, the way they stuck at it for 80 minutes, a lesser side would maybe not even have been in the contest,” said coach Tony McGahan.“Ronan O’Gara’s kick at the end, he’s a special person to do that, to show the bottle to put his hand up and make the kick. This felt like a Round Six encounter during the week when it actually was an opening-round game. This competition is like six Test matches and we are approaching it in that fashion. The win gives us a great buzz,” he added.Saints fans weren’t too pleased with the refereeing of Nigel Owens, who has had a rough few months. Northampton coach Jim Mallinder said he was disappointed with some of the calls.“I think the game did hinge on some crucial refereeing decisions. I felt the referee got quite a lot wrong. I think it is as simple as that. It is difficult. It is an intimidating place to play with a cracking atmosphere.“Sometimes you don’t always get the rub of the green and I think we will look back and probably say we did not quite get it. The mood in the dressing room is low. The feeling is one of frustration.”Below are the final few minutes, including all of 41 phases, and then the winning kick.Please Note: Clips from the rest of the weekend’s matches will be posted over the next few daysADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Will threats against Siberian journalist go unpunished again?

first_img Organisation RSF_en RussiaEurope – Central Asia Condemning abuses Organized crimeImpunityViolenceCouncil of EuropeInternet Listed as a “foreign agent”, Russia’s most popular independent website risks disappearing News Читать по-русски / Read in RussianReporters Without Borders (RSF) calls for an immediate investigation into death threats against Mikhail Afanasyev, the editor of the regional news website Novy Fokus in Khakassia, in south-centralSiberia, from a criminal gang whose activities he covered.A month after drawing attention to the impunity enjoyed by the gang in Kuraga, in the southern part of the Krasnoyarsk region, Afanasyev received a call from the gang’s leader, Andrei Ashcheulov, which he recorded and posted online on 15 December.Using threatening language, Ashcheulov and a friend calling himself Yevgeny ordered Afanasyev to delete his article. Comments such as “Hello, kamikaze,” “I’m already nearby” and “I’ll rip everything out of you” can be heard throughout the conversation. Afanasyev reported the threats to the local police on 19 December. He is now about to file another complaint accusing his callers of “obstructing a journalist’s legal professional activity” under article 144 of the Russian criminal code. He said no action was taken after he filed a complaint earlier this year about similar threats.“The threats against Mikhail Afanasyev are grave and must be taken seriously,” said Johann Bihr, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “Given the available evidence, it would be incomprehensible if no investigation were quickly launched and carried through to the end.“We will follow this case closely in order to see whether or not it is yet another example of the impunity enjoyed by only too many of those responsible for attacks against journalists in Russia.”Afanasyev, who has often had run-ins with the local authorities, founded Novy Fokus in 2005 with the prize money of a journalism award from the Glasnost Defence Foundation, an RSF partner organization.Russia is ranked 148th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.

Alexandrov case , one year after the journalist’s death

The supreme court’s attitude will show how willing the Ukrainian legal system is to fight against impunity in the case, the three organisations said. If it did uphold the lower court’s decision, it would open the way to a new investigation of the murder and raise hopes of finding and convicting Alexandrov’s real killers, they said. If it did not, it would strengthen the belief that the trial was rigged by the Ukrainian authorities.The three organisations welcomed the acquittal of Yuri Veredyuk, a homeless person accused of murdering Alexandrov. The case rested entirely on Veredyuk’s confession, without any concrete evidence of his involvement in the killing. Alexandrov’s family, their lawyer and the three organisations worked to expose the glaring holes in the investigation and ensure that an innocent person was not convicted to protect from punishment those really responsible for the crime.On the first anniversary of Alexandrov’s death, Reporters Without Borders, the Damocles Network and the IMI are publishing a day-by-day account of the trial which can be read at www.rsf.org. The report was compiled by IMI members who attended the whole trial.The factsAlexandrov, general manager of the Slaviansk TV station TOR, was beaten over the head by thugs with baseball bats at the entrance to the station’s offices on 3 July 2001 and died in hospital from severe head injuries on 7 July.He had already got into trouble for being a journalist. In 1998, he was fined 2,350 hryvnas (500 euros) and banned from working in journalism for five years after being sued by a member of parliament, Olexandr Leshchynsky, who he had called “the vodka king of the Donbass” industrial area of eastern Ukraine. In 2000, the case was dropped after Leshchinsky withdrew his complaint, but Alexandrov tried to get the conviction annulled and force the authorities to admit the prosecution’s errors and award him moral damages.After a botched initial enquiry into the murder, which was accompanied by much pressure on the Alexandrov family, the general prosecutor’s office announced the name of a suspect last 15 December but did not say what the motive for the killing was. The persistence of the Alexandrov family and their lawyer, Bogdan Ferents, who had been hired by the IMI and Reporters Without Borders, enabled Alexandrov’s son to be officially recognised as a party in the case and to get the trial to start within 20 days after the end of the preliminary enquiry as Ukrainian law demands.

Indian reporters repeatedly attacked during week of intercommunal violence

first_imgNaomi Barton, a reporter for The Wire news website, described to RSF the terror felt by journalists trying to cover the violence. “For the most part we were trying to not let on that we were reporters,” she said. “I was mostly shooting on my phone and not carrying a lot of equipment.” Many reporters found themselves caught in the ensuing, extremely violent clashes between CAA supporters and opponents. They included Akash Napa, a reporter for the JK 24×7 TV news channel, who was shot in the chest at midday on 25 February while covering mob violence in the district of Maujpur. News IndiaAsia – Pacific Condemning abusesProtecting journalists Violence Organisation News June 10, 2021 Find out more March 3, 2021 Find out more Freelancer Shreya Chatterjee told The Print newspaper that she was covering the ransacked stores, burning buildings and stone-throwing in Maujpur on Twitter when she was accosted by pro-CAA activists. “This is the fight of Hindus,” they told her. “Support us, and don’t record all this. Otherwise you will be in trouble.” Follow the news on India Trapped The week of rioting, which left at least 42 dead and around 350 injured, began in mainly Muslim neighbourhoods after the leadership of the ruling Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party issued a call on 24 February for a crackdown on protests against the newly adopted Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), which many regard as discriminatory against Muslims. Tanushree Pandey was reporting for India Today in the same district when she found herself surrounded by mob that told her not to take photos. “All this while 10 men were holding me tightly by my waist and shoulders,” she wrote on Twitter. “Have never felt so scared.” Lynch mobs Freelancer Ismat Ara described on the Firstpost website how she avoided being lynched by hiding the fact that she was a journalist and had a Muslim surname. “I was scared they would catch me for being a journalist, molest me for being a girl, lynch me for being a Muslim if they found out my identity,” she wrote. Other reporters such as Scroll.in website’s Vijayna Lalwani, Times Now’s Parvina Purkayashta and Republic TV’s Shantasree Sarkar have confirmed the sexual dimension of the harassment to which women journalists were more specifically subjected during these days of terror. IndiaAsia – Pacific Condemning abusesProtecting journalists Violence The media victims included NDTV reporters Arvind Gunasekar, Saurabh Shukla and Mariyam Alavi and cameraman Sushil Rathee. All four had to be hospitalized on the afternoon of 25 February after being badly injured by pro-CAA demonstrators, some of whom surrounded Gunasekar, hitting him in the face, with the result that he lost three teeth. Shukla took a blow from a lathi, a type of long baton often used to deadly effect by riot police, when he tried to prevent one of the demonstrators from using it against Gunasekar. RSF_en News “Your phone or your life” After taking photos of a fire the same day in the district of West Karawal Nagar, Indian Express reporter Shivnarayan Rajpurohit was accosted by rioters, who told him: “You can’t report from here.”  They took his notebook and threw it into the flames and then demanded his smartphone, saying: “What’s more precious to you: Your phone or life?” After being hit a few times, he handed over his phone. A man then took his sunglasses and crushed beneath his foot. Surrounded by around 50 threatening individuals, Rajpurohit finally managed to flee on his bicycle.center_img Three Hindustan Times reporters, Soumya Pillai, Anvit Srivastava and Fareeha Ifthikar, were attacked in their car in a nearby district. They tried to flee but were chased and caught by men on motorcycles, who made them prove that they were Hindus before letting them go. India is ranked 140th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index. CNN News 18 TV reporter Runjhun Sharma was also the target of extreme hostility. “I was surrounded by these men, who kept asking us for our religious credentials,” he said. “We had to fold our hands in front of them. We had to plead for several minutes to let us go.” Although circulating on a two-wheeler with a colleague from The Wire, Barton was repeatedly stopped by hostile mobs. “They took our phones and made us delete our footage, too many times to tell,” she said, adding that she soon began uploading material to The Wire’s WhatsApp group so that crucial evidence would not be lost.

Times of India photojournalist Anindya Chattopadhyay said he was accosted by Hindu nationalists armed with lathis when he tried to photograph a burning building at around midday on 24 February. “You are also a Hindu, so what is the harm?” one of them asked. When he tried to get away, they followed him and threatened to pull down his trousers to see if he was a Muslim. He too had to put his hands together to beg them to let him go. Other journalists also reported having to beg pro-CAA demonstrators to let them go by putting their hands together or by shouting “Jai Shri Ram” (Victory for the God Rama) in order to show that they were Hindus. In some cases, rioters even asked reporters to chant a traditional Hindu hymn called the Hanuman Chalisa. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) denounces the repeated press freedom violations by Hindu nationalist activists during intercommunal violence in New Delhi’s northeastern districts last week, when they showed a systematic determination to prevent reporters from doing their work. to go further “The passivity shown by the police during mob intimidation of journalists was bordering on complicity,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk. “The targeted violence against reporters indicated a systematic determination to prevent them from covering a major event in India’s history.
