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. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. The oil crash made global headlines when the price of US crude oil went negative on 20 April. However, by this time most oil stocks had already crashed. They haven’t yet recovered. At the time of writing, the BP (LSE: BP) share price has fallen by 35% in 2020 and its 10% dividend yield looks increasingly risky.With doom and gloom all around, is now the time to buy BP shares for a recovery? I’ve been taking a fresh look to see how the next few years could shape up for this FTSE 100 giant.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…BP share price: the bull caseOil bulls think that the outlook for big producers like BP could be quite strong.Global oil production is expected to fall by about 10% in May and June, thanks to widespread production cuts. Oil traders hope this will help to balance supply with demand, which has fallen sharply due to the coronavirus pandemic.Most oil producers are also making big cuts to planned spending. This means that new production will be delayed, or even abandoned.Oil bulls argue that demand will bounce back quickly, as it always has done in the past. When this happens, supply could fall short of demand, pushing up oil prices to much higher levels.In this scenario, I’d expect the BP share price to track back towards 500p, as profits surged and the dividend stayed safe.What could go wrong?I think there are a couple of reasons to be worried about this bullish view of the future. In the short term, it’s not yet clear how quickly the global economy will recover from the pandemic. Demand could be slightly below historic levels for some time.Looking further ahead, the big concern is climate change. BP’s new chief executive, Bernard Looney, has committed to make the company’s operations carbon neutral by 2050.More interestingly, Looney has also committed to a 50% cut in the carbon intensity of BP’s products by 2050. My understanding is that this means the pollution generated when the group’s energy products are consumed must fall sharply.I think it’s possible that oil demand could start to decline over the next few years. In this scenario, oil prices might stay low for the foreseeable future. BP’s share price would probably stay low, too – and the dividend would probably be cut.Is the 10% yield safe?Looney has promised investors that he will provide an update on the dividend with the group’s half-year results. I think he’d be wise to cut the payout now, while he has a good excuse.BP’s debt levels have continued to rise and reached $51.4bn at the end of the first quarter. Low oil prices will hit earnings this year and make planned asset sales more difficult. I don’t see how the payout can really be affordable.BP share price: buy, sell, or hold?I think BP will adapt and find ways to reduce its carbon footprint by changing the mix of products it sells. High debt levels and an unaffordable dividend will makes changes like these more difficult.I think a dividend cut is necessary – perhaps a 50% reduction. Looking ahead, I’d say that the BP share price is probably fairly value at the moment. I’d rate the stock as a hold, rather than a buy.

Convention elects Episcopalians to churchwide boards

first_img Rector Belleville, IL TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Featured Events [Episcopal News Service] When the 77th General Convention met July 5-12 in Indianapolis, the bishops and deputies elected people to a number of churchwide boards, and confirmed appointments to others.The convention elected two bishops, seven lay and two clergy members to the church’s Executive Council, which carries out the programs and policies adopted by the General Convention, according to Canon I.4 (1)(a). The council is composed of 38 members, 20 of whom (four bishops, four priests or deacons and 12 lay people) are elected by General Convention and 18 (one clergy and one lay) by provincial synods for six-year terms, plus the presiding bishop and the president of the House of Deputies.Information about the newly elected members of council is here.As happens at every General Convention, the gathering elected the members of the Joint Standing Committee for the Election of the Presiding Bishop. The 27 people elected will be joined by two persons, aged 16-21, who will be appointed by the Rev. Gay Jennings, president of the House of Deputies, according to the election process outlined in Canon I.2.1.The 2013-2015 iteration of the committee will be in charge of nominating at least three bishops to succeed Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, 58, whose nine-year term ends Oct. 31, 2015. The 27th presiding bishop will be elected at the 78th General Convention to be held in July 2015 in Salt Lake City.In the past, the nominees have been announced prior to the start of the convention during which the election will take place. The names are formally placed into nomination at convention during a joint session of the House of Bishops and the House of Deputies. Nominations from the floor are allowed during that session. There is no limit to the number of terms a presiding bishop may serve. The only requirement is that the presiding bishop must tender his or her resignation to the General Convention that occurs closest to his or her 72nd birthday. All Episcopal Church clergy are required to resign their position when they reach that age.On the day following the joint session, the bishops traditionally meet apart from the convention to elect the next presiding bishop. The bishops then report to the House of Deputies the results of the election, including with the votes cast for each nominee on each ballot. The deputies must then vote to confirm or not confirm the bishops’ choice.The people elected by convention (a bishop, cleric and lay person from each province) to serve on the election committee are:Massachusetts Bishop Thomas Shaw, the Rev. Canon Mally Ewing Lloyd and Dante A. Tavolaro (Province I),Western New York Bishop R. William Franklin, the Rev. Canon Sandye A. Wilson and Diane B.

Five tweets for fundraisers on 29 January 2021

first_img3. Charity saving expertFinancial journalist and presenter Martin Lewis has once again defended charities and called on the government to provide more financial support, and not just for charities dealing directly with the impact of COVID19.The easy criticism of charities for paying staff (it’s always paying staff ‘too much’, and not ‘too little’) has continually to be countered, and Lewis does it powerfully and publicly. And as someone who is giving £10m he has a strong position from which to do so.I’ve read some neg comments about charities on the back of this, like ‘stop paying staff so much’ or ‘when you look at the books and see wage cost, it’s a disgrace’. While there will be some isolated poor practice, overall I think it’s a dangerous attitude & wanted to respond:- https://t.co/4FLLxAsrn5 pic.twitter.com/3o11nBo8wu— Martin Lewis (@MartinSLewis) January 28, 2021 5.

Massive mobilization in France charges racist police murder

first_imgEver since Adama Traoré, a person from the West African country of Mali living in a northern suburb of Paris, died in 2016 while being questioned by three members of the French national police, the coalition The Truth About Adama Traoré has been campaigning to expose this as a significant example of the racist violence that French cops dispense. While French cops don’t kill many people compared to cops in Brazil or the U.S.  –— the 10 to 15 on average a year is nowhere near the over 1,000 killed in the U.S. — they have beaten, maimed and blinded hundreds in recent years. The extent of French police brutality has been well documented in law suits filed by Yellow Vest protesters.Paris protest, June 12.Authorities issued the final autopsy report on Adama Traoré’s death as May ended. The coalition then called for demonstrations on June 2 in Paris, Marseille, Lille, Lyon and Bordeaux.  The coalition expected about 1,000 people to turn out.  But the protest on June 2 followed the news of the brutal killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis and the beginning of mass demonstrations in the U.S. According to the cops over 20,000 people came out — the coalition estimates 60,000.  Many placards and banners were expressions of solidarity — George/Adama, the same fight (in French).  Protesters also purposely carried signs in English, such as “#Black Lives Matter” to make their solidarity clear to the world.All who have been demanding system changes — youth from suburban neighborhoods (French suburbs are filled with poor and working-class Black and Arab communities) came out side by side with cultural and sports personalities, Yellow Vest protesters and climate activists — and stood in front of the Paris courthouse to make their anger over police violence heard. White workers with steady jobs, who, according to the major daily newspaper Le Monde, are beginning to see the “relevance of this struggle,” also joined.   Assa Traoré, the older sister of Adama, speaking for the coalition, said that “the system in France was the same as the system in the United States” and both have to be overturned. According to the coalition, the huge turnout was the result of four years of struggle over the death of Adama and decades of struggle against racism in France.And indeed their voices were heard. The next week Christophe Castaner, the minister of interior who is in charge of the police throughout the country, went on television to announce that cop chokeholds were forbidden and cops caught engaging in racist violence would be severely punished.  At the next demonstration the Adama Traoré coalition called, a slightly smaller response in Paris was still militant. The people came out despite warnings from the cops that large assemblies were forbidden because of the danger of contamination from the coronavirus.At the start of the Paris march, a group of right-wing “white rights” activists dropped a banner from an apartment house.  People living in the apartments ripped the banner down, while marchers below chanted, “We despise fascists!” The whole scene was covered on French Television’s national news.Major solidarity actions supporting the anti-racist movement in the United States also took place in England, Scotland, Germany, Spain and Italy.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Another journalist targeted by demonstrators

first_img to go further April 21, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information In a similar demonstration in the southern business capital of Karachi on 16 September, protesters smashed the windows of several TV station trucks.Pakistan is ranked 151st out of 179 countries in the 2011-2012 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. Agence France-Presse photographer Asif Hasan was injured by demonstrators during a protest in Karachi on 21 September against the anti-Islamic video “Innocence of Muslims.”One of his colleagues, Hasan Mansoor, told Reporters Without Borders that Hasan was injured while resisting protesters who were trying to grab his camera.”The demonstrators took Asif’s lens, but he resisted and did not let them get the camera,” Mansoor said. The photographer received injuries to the hand, shoulder and ear. His motorcycle was also taken but he later found it abandoned.__________________21/09/2012: Media targeted during protests, TV driver fatally shotARY News television driver Aamir Liaqat received a fatal gunshot injury to the chest when police opened fire today on demonstrators staging a violent protest outside a cinema in the northern city of Peshawar against the anti-Islamic video “Innocence of Muslims.”Reporters Without Borders offers its heartfelt condolences to Liaqat’s family, friends and colleagues and calls for an independent investigation to determine the exact circumstances of his death, including the role of the police.”It is essential that the relevant authorities give the police clear orders to avoid endangering media workers,” said Reporters Without Borders, which also urged demonstrators not to target the media and journalists who are attend their protests as observers, just to cover the situation.Liaqat was driving an Ary News vehicle when police opened fire on the protesters, who were trying to set fire to the cinema. Three rounds hit the vehicle and one of them struck Liaqat. He was rushed to a hospital, where he died.”We clearly asked the police not to fire towards the ARY News truck but the police ignored our request,” one of the TV station’s journalists said.The media were also targeted during similar protests against the US-produced video in other Pakistani cities. A Samaa TV crew was attacked while covering a protest in Karachi and their truck was set on fire.Protesters also targeted a press club located near the US consulate in the eastern city of Lahore and a press club in the southern city of Hyderabad. Ashiq Hussain, a Samaa TV journalist in Hyderabad, said the demonstrators were dissatisfied with the media’s coverage of their protests. He added that the situation in Hyderabad was under control and that the police had stationed themselves near the press club in order to protect it._______________20/09/2012: Liberal daily attacked during protest against anti-Islam videoTwo days after the attack on the Wari Press Club in the northern province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, demonstrators protesting against the anti-Islamic video “Innocence of Muslims” yesterday attacked the Daily Times office in the southern city of Karachi.During a strike organized by the Islamist party Jamaat-e-Islami, individuals opened fire outside the newspaper’s office and stormed inside, causing minor damage and no injuries.The newspaper’s management said the protesters had tried to paralyze its activities by intimidating staff.Launched in March 2002, the Daily Times is one of Pakistan’s best-known liberal newspapers and covers such sensitive subjects as the country’s growing extremism and efforts to combat terrorism.___________________18/09/2012: Three journalists injured when protesters ransack and torch press clubA large crowd protesting against a controversial US-produced film ridiculing the Prophet Mohammed yesterday ransacked and set fire to the Press Club in Wari, in the Upper Dir district of the northwestern province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, injuring three journalists.”We condemn such acts of violence against journalists and the premises they use,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The security forces must have an active presence at demonstrations to ensure that they do not turn violent, and must intervene when people are in danger.”The media freedom organization added: “We are very worried about the ability of journalists to work freely in Pakistan, which offers no safety guarantees for media personnel.”In yesterday’s attack on the Wari Press Club, Jamil Roghani of the Daily Mashriq, Idress of Khyber News TV and Bahadur Khan of the Daily Wahdat were punched and beaten with sticks by protesters, who ransacked the main building, the record office, computers and other equipment and then set fire to four rooms.

Bombay High Court Chief Justice’ Bench To Hear Covid-19 Related PILs During Summer Vacation

first_imgNews UpdatesBombay High Court Chief Justice’ Bench To Hear Covid-19 Related PILs During Summer Vacation Sharmeen Hakim4 May 2021 3:42 AMShare This – xThe bench led by Chief Justice Dipankar Datta of the Bombay High Court will continue to hear all covid-19 related PILs during the vacation. The HC summer vacations will start on May 10, 2021 and end on June 6, 2021. The division bench of CJ and Justice GS Kulkarni said they would take up Covid-19 related cases even during the vacation, while adjourning a clutch of PILs on the issue for Thursday. “We will take up covid – 19 related matters on Thursday as Advocate General is in bereavement,” the CJ said about the passing on of the AG’s father. He then added, “This bench will hear covid-19 related matters during the vacation as well.” Last week the bench widened the PILs’ scope, noting instances of frequent fires in hospitals. While directing the State to ensure all hospitals are fire compliant, the court observed, private hospitals have become “jatugrihas,” the wax mansion built to kill the Pandavas in the Hindu epic, Mahabharata. “A person who is ill and in agony expects proper treatment after he is admitted in a hospital. Meeting death in such unfortunate circumstances would be far away from his imagination,” the bench had said while granting closure of hospitals if found seriously deficient in fire compliance. During an earlier hearing, the bench also directed the State to ensure that anti-viral drug Remdesivir – is made available to patients at the hospital/Covid Centre itself without forcing them to run pillar to post, through a helpline number which must be operational 24/7.
