I believe FTSE 100 pharmaceutical heavyweights AstraZeneca and GlaxoSmithKline will be the biggest winners from the rapid increase in UK coronavirus testing.Why do I say that? Let me point you to Sir Kier Starmer’s first appearance as Labour leader at Prime Minister’s Questions. It was generally regarded as a solid debut. The former director of public prosecutions tore into First Secretary Dominic Raab for the government’s lack of activity to increase coronavirus immunity testing.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 Department of Health target is 100,000 tests per day by the end of April 2020. However, it has a capacity of only 40,000 tests per day, Raab said. Furthermore, fewer than 20,000 tests per day are being carried out each day at present.Whatever your political leaning, we can all agree that analysis of workers’ Covid-19 immunity will be vital for reopening the shuttered UK economy.Starmer’s line of questioning teased out some interesting detail from Raab. He highlighted that AZN and GSK are setting up the next major Covid-19 testing laboratory at Cambridge University. This news has broad financial implications for the two FTSE 100 companies.FTSE 100 FTWCoronavirus testing has become something of a gold rush in the UK. Several small AIM-listed companies are investing heavily in new biotech projects. And investors thick with cash are piling in to relative unknowns on promise alone.Shares in the Anglo-French firm Novacyt, for example, are up 2,750% since the start of 2020. But I contend that FTSE 100 pharma giants are much more likely to improve their earnings with large government contracts.AstraZeneca and GlaxoSmithKline’s new laboratory at Cambridge University is “for high throughput screening of Covid-19 testing”, says a press release. It will “explore the use of alternative chemical reagents for test kits in order to help overcome current supply shortages“.Even if life sciences minnows wanted to, they could not achieve the necessary processes fast enough to command the scale that governments require.Only the FTSE 100 pharma giants have the industry contacts, economies of scale, and supply chain depth to produce the required millions of tests per month.This is why UK government contracts tend to go to the same players all the time. That includes Capita for IT or G4S for security. No matter that these examples are often heavily criticised for their evident shortcomings.Dividend certaintyThere is also the question of dividends. Yes, an investment in Novacyt or its AIM-listed alternatives may produce some short-term capital gains. But no dividends. And small-cap prices are also prone to extreme volatility.By contrast, my two picks are defensive choices that have rapidly bounced back from the market bottom on 19 March 2020.In addition, we are witnessing wide-scale FTSE 100 dividend suspension. In the worst case scenario, the index’s average yield will fall from 4.35% in 2019 to just 2% in 2020.GSK is widely regarded as one of the safest dividend payouts on the FTSE 100. For example, CEO Emma Walmsley doles out a 5% yield per share every year like clockwork. AstraZeneca pays out $2.80 per share annually without fail. Dependable is best. This is where I, and the government, can place our faith for the future. 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.

Call for release of news agency cameraman held by US forces

first_img Iraq : Wave of arrests of journalists covering protests in Iraqi Kurdistan RSF’s 2020 Round-up: 50 journalists killed, two-thirds in countries “at peace” Organisation Follow the news on Iraq RSF_en News June 9, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Call for release of news agency cameraman held by US forces IraqMiddle East – North Africa Reporters Without Borders and its partner organisation, the Journalistic Freedom Observatory in Iraq (JFO), called today for the release of Associated Press (AP) cameraman Ahmed Nouri, who has been held since 4 June at the US military base in Tikrit (180 km north of Baghdad).“His continued unjustified detention is a blatant violation of Iraqi law, “ the two organisations said. “He must be freed at once if he is not charged with any offence. We strongly deplore the efforts of the security forces to intimidate journalists and media workers. It would be inadmissable, less than two months after the release of AP photographer Bilal Hussein, for another AP staffer to be caught up in an endless political and legal tangle.” A joint US-Iraqi military patrol arrested Nouri at his home in the Al-Zohour neighbourhood of eastern Tikrit on 4 June, seized more than 20 tape-recordings and told his family he was to be interrogated for “security reasons.” A former prisoner recently released from the Tikrit base confirmed to the JFO that Nouri was being held there. Nouri was imprisoned for two months in 2004 at the Baghdad prison of Abu Ghraib before being released without being charged with any crime. AP spokesman Paul Colford told Reporters Without Borders that the news agency was “investigating the situation”. Hussein was freed in April after two years in prison when US authorities in Iraq admitted he was not a “security threat.” News Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders and the Journalistic Freedom Observatory in Iraq called for the release of Associated Press cameraman Ahmed Nouri, who has been held at the US military base in Tikrit. “It would be inadmissable, less than two months after the release of AP photographer Bilal Hussein, for another AP staffer to be caught up in an endless political and legal tangle,” the two organisations said.

Ethical Traveler Announces 2021’s ‘Ten Best (Post-Pandemic) Destinations’ Awards

first_img Twitter Pinterest WhatsApp Twitter Local NewsUS News Ethical Traveler Announces 2021’s ‘Ten Best (Post-Pandemic) Destinations’ Awards TAGS  BERKELEY, Calif., Feb. 16, 2021 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Every year, California-based Ethical Traveler reviews the world’s developing nations for their commitment to human rights, social welfare, and environmental protection. The ten destinations with the most impressive records are honored with Ethical Destinations Awards. For 2021 – mindful of 2020’s COVID challenges – we did something different: We reviewed our lists of recent winners, and determined which of these already worthy and fascinating countries will benefit most from our travel dollars in a post-pandemic world. Our 2021 Awards underscore the fact that, despite the chaos wrought by COVID-19, we enter 2021 seeing rays of hope. But the world won’t recover overnight. This is especially true for the international travel industry, which employs 1 out of 10 people worldwide. The free fall in travel and tourism has had a devastating impact across this vast sector of human society. Visiting our winning destinations will enable them to emerge from the pandemic’s shadow and continue their impressive work on all fronts. By “voting with your wings” (once you are vaccinated, of course!), you can reward these nations for their efforts and motivate other countries to do the same. Ethical Traveler congratulates the 2021 honorees of the Ten Best (Post-Pandemic) Destinations Awards. In alphabetical order (not in order of merit), the winners are: Belize Benin Cabo Verde Costa Rica Ecuador Jamaica Mongolia Nepal The Gambia Uruguay “Though the travel suggestions in this report may seem wishful, they are actually aspirational, because this much is certain: Travel will return,” says Ethical Traveler’s executive director Jeff Greenwald. “And when we visit countries like these, which have taken extraordinary steps to confront the pandemic, we’re expressing our admiration and support in a tangible way.” Adds Greenwald, “If COVID-19 taught us one thing, it’s that our borders are imaginary. We are the inhabitants of a small planet, stunning in both its beauty and fragility. We can survive as a species only by taking care of each other. This begins with knowing each other. Travel and exploration – whether to the reefs of Belize, the steppes of Mongolia, or the volcanoes of Cabo Verde – brings more than a new awareness of ourselves. It shows us what it means to be human.” Ethical Traveler is a project of the Berkeley-based Earth Island Institute. The mission of Ethical Traveler – “Empowering travelers to change the world” – highlights the economic clout of travel and tourism to protect human rights and the global environment.

Pfluger introduces border protection bills

first_img Pfluger introduces border protection bills By Federico Martinez – May 24, 2021 Facebook “In Midland there were ministers and other people in the community who wanted to help, but they couldn’t because of the federal government,” Pfluger said, noting people wanted to make sure the youth had adequate clothing, hygiene products and other basic supplies.Pfluger said he’s not yet sure which committees the bills will be sent to for review. The first bill will likely be sent to multiple committees like Homeland Security and a COVID-related committee.“Now it’s up to the committees,” said Pfluger, who expressed concern that one or both bills could be stalled or die at the committee level.Pfluger and other Republican legislators admit they will have an even tougher challenge passing a proposed alternative budget for fiscal year 2022. Pfluger last Wednesday announced his support for the budget proposed by the Republican Study Committee.“Democrats have only been in charge for five months and they are already wrecking our economy,” Pfluger said.“Inflation is rising, job growth is stalling, the national debt continues to skyrocket, and House Democrats continue to wrongly pursue trillions in crippling tax hikes that will harm Texas farmers and ranchers, businesses, and families.”Pfluger said the Republican budget proposal would balance the federal budget and cut spending by $14.4 trillion in 10 years, and reduce taxes on American families by $1.9 trillion.“The proposal is straightforward,” Pfluger said. “It’s about not spending more than what you’re taking in.”Pfluger said he and other Republicans will be lobbying their Democrat counterparts to support the proposal and take their argument to voters via the media and by visiting communities.“I knew this was going to be a challenge,” Pfluger said. “It’s unlikely (House Speaker Nancy) Pelosi will do anything fiscally responsible.“It’s going to take patience and getting out and talking to our constituents. We’re going to have to show the American people this will work.” Twitter Pinterest WhatsApp Rep. August Pfluger, R-Texas A bill that would divert COVID-19 stimulus funds to reimburse local law enforcement agency efforts to protect the border, are among several “common sense” bills recently introduced by Republican Congressman August Pfluger, (TX-11).A second bill would require the federal government to inform and coordinate with local government leaders in advance when placing immigrant youths in temporary detainment centers, like the ones set up in Midland and Pecos earlier this year without community leaders’ knowledge.“These are pretty straightforward, common sense bills,” Pfluger said during a Monday afternoon phone interview. “It will require the federal government to work with local government and do things like provide weekly updates.“The federal government hasn’t been very transparent – it’s almost embarrassing – all we’re talking about is good communication that will help protect communities and the kids.”Pfluger was one of many state, and local leaders who were upset when the federal government secretly began transporting immigrant youths and lodging them in hastily setup detainment centers in Midland and other Texas communitiesFederal officials continuously rebuffed inquiries from Pfluger and local leaders who wanted to know how many youths were being detained in Midland, how long they would be detained and refused requests to visit the centers.center_img Twitter WhatsApp Facebook Pinterest Local News Previous articleSCHOLAR ATHLETES: Villarreal leaves behind strong impression at Fort StocktonNext articleUniversity of Texas of the Permian Basin’s STEM Academy Elementary Field Day Federico Martinezlast_img read more

Crews search for teenager in Florida pond after witness claims seeing him go under

first_imgWFTV(ORLANDO, Fla.) — Crews are searching a Florida retention pond after a man reported witnessing a teenager flailing in the water and go under.Orlando Fire and Rescue crews with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) have been performing an active search and rescue mission in the pond in efforts to find the teen, Orange County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Jeff Williamson said in a press conference.The water rescue efforts will continue until they find the missing individual, which could take days, according to Williamson.A man was in his backyard when he spotted a male teenager flailing in the water, roughly 20 to 30 yards from the shoreline, Williamson said.The man ran back into his house to grab binoculars and better see the person in the water. The man reported hearing the person yell, “it bit me, it bit me,” before going underwater and never resurfacing.Trappers from the FWC spotted a 6-foot-long alligator in the pond, Chad Weber, an FWC officer, said in the press conference.Authorities are canvassing the area around the pond in an attempt to learn if anyone has been reported missing, Williamson said.The pond is roughly 8-feet deep, and the water rescue search includes using boats with sonar that are highly likely to detect a person, according to Williamson. If there is a hit on sonar, a rescue dive team will be called in.Until then, the search continues.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
