Manika Premsingh | Monday, 29th June, 2020 | More on: SN Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares I reckon that the best UK shares to buy now are those that are still recovering from the stock market crash. They aren’t easy to come by now, though. The FTSE 100 index has made consistent gains in the last two months. It rose 4% in May and has seen an almost 5% increase in June. As a result many shares’ prices are back to their pre-crash levels. But for the eagle-eyed investor, there are still some good buys to be made. Think about this. Sure, the FTSE 100 index has risen, but it’s still not at the pre-crash levels. As a matter of fact, it’s 17% lower in June than in January. This means that at least some FTSE 100 shares are still at muted prices. Some of these were underperformers even before the stock market crash occurred. But there are others too. These ones have been hit disproportionately by the corona crisis. 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…Best UK share to buy in the recessionOne of them is medical devices manufacturer Smith & Nephew (LSE: SN). Typically , it would be relatively insulated in a recession. Healthcare spending is less likely to be hit during such times than say, spending on luxury goods and holidays. As a result, stocks like healthcare are among the best UK shares to hold during economic slowdowns. But this recession is an exception. It has gone hand in hand with cross-country lockdowns. As a result, elective surgeries have taken a backseat. Some of SN’s products are associated with these. For instance, it manufactures knee and hip implants for replacement surgeries, which aren’t always urgent even if they are important. Expect a bounce backSmith & Nephew’s performance has been hit because of this. It showed a 7.6% revenue fall in the first quarter of the year. With lockdowns easing only well into the second quarter, I think investors should be prepared for one more poor update. After that, though, I think it will bounce back. It has been a profit-making company in the past, and much like other companies, its 2020 performance should be seen as a blip.SN’s share price sensitivity can also be high. I wrote about it in October last year, after it fell 8% in a day on the sudden news that it’s then CEO, Kamal Nawana, had resigned. However, his replacement was appointed quickly and the stock price was well on it’s way up again. Covid-19 and the ensuing stock market crash have taken the wind out of its sails, for sure. But I do think that the share has the potential to start rising fast again. Until then, I think it’s one of the best UK shares to consider buying. At its last close, the SN share price was at £15.2, which is 23% below the highs seen earlier in 2020. I think it’s only a matter of time before FTSE 100 investors see its potential. I’d buy SN before that happens, and its price starts running up. Manika Premsingh has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Howard Lake | 8 October 2012 | News The new amended legislation is likely to be in place this autumn. The Charity Commission will then be able to issue new draft ./guidance, which will be consulted upon, probably early in 2013. When this process is complete the Register of Charities can be established by the NI Charity Commission.Since there will not be a prescribed public benefit test specified in legislation, it will be up to the Charity Commission to promote awareness and understanding of the public benefit requirement, as is one of its objectives. Charity trustees will then be able to refer to the Charity Commission’s public benefit ./guidance for direction.Proposed new wordingThe proposed new wording relating to public benefit is:1.(1) For section 3 of the 2008 Act (the “public benefit” test) there shall be substituted the following section“The public benefit requirement3.(1) In this Act “the public benefit requirement” means the requirement in section 2(1)(b) that a purpose falling within section 2(2) must be for the public benefit if it is to be a charitable purpose.(2) In determining whether the public benefit requirement is satisfied in relation to any purpose falling within section 2(2), it is not to be presumed that a purpose of a particular description is for the public benefit.(3) In this Act any reference to the public benefit is a reference to the public benefit as that term is understood for the purposes of the law relating to charities in Northern Ireland.(4) Subsection (3) is subject to subsection (2).”(2) This section shall be deemed always to have had effect.NICVA last week submitted its written response on the Charities Bill to the Committee for Social Development.www.nicva.org New wording to help define “public benefit” in the 2008 Charities Act for Northern Ireland has been proposed. It should pave the way for full implementation of the Act in 2013.The proposed new wording is the same as that found in charity legislation in England and Wales and differs from that in Scotland. It places principal emphasis on the public benefit requirement under charitable purpose, rather than to including a prescribed charity test in legislation as found in Scottish charity legislation.The proposed amendment will not affect the requirement in the Act that no particular purpose should be presumed to be for the public benefit.

Jan. 15 — The first event in a weeklong “Days of Rage” campaign in New York City was a rally today for working-class resistance called by the People’s Power Assemblies, Metropolitan Anarchist Coordinating Council and NYC Workers Defense Committee.Held to honor the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy in the labor movement, the picket line supported Spectrum workers — members of Local 3 of the International Electrical Workers, who have been on strike since March 28 of last year — as well as Florida prisoners whose Operation PUSH strike began today.The demonstrators chanted against union busting outside Spectrum’s headquarters near Central Park. They then marched to join a Rally Against Racism called by the health care workers’ union, Service Employees 1199, in solidarity with workers from Haiti, El Salvador and the continent of Africa.Spectrum, formerly Time Warner Cable, was renamed after being purchased by Charter Communications. The $149 billion cable monopoly has demanded the elimination of union pension and medical benefits. It has refused to negotiate in good faith, instead bringing in hundreds of strikebreakers.Both rallies paid tribute to Dr. King, who was assassinated while supporting striking sanitation workers in Memphis 50 years ago in 1968.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Ruhayn is a correspondent for Warsaw-based European Radio for Belarus (ERB).“Vital Ruhayn’s arrest is indicative of the regime’s sensitivities about matters related – closely or otherwise – to the Minsk bombing and national security,” Reporters Without Borders said. “A journalist should not be arrested for highlighting police violations of security regulations. We call for the withdrawal of the trumped-up charges brought against him.”Ruhayn, 25, was arrested on the evening of 25 July on charges of “hooliganism” and “using obscene language” in a public place. He pleaded not guilty when his trial began yesterday before a court in the Minsk district of Tsentralny without his lawyer being allowed to attend.The court released Ruhayn and adjourned the hearing for five days to allow the police to correct inconsistencies in the written reports they submitted to the court. Although Ruhayn is now free, the prosecution has not been dropped and he is still facing the possibility of imprisonment or some other penalty.In the video that was clearly the real reason for his arrest, Ruhayn carried a large bag into the Minsk metro in order to test the vigilance of the police. Although he took the same route as the metro bomber, the police did not at any time inspect the bag’s contents.On 24 July, the day before his arrest, Ruhayn was briefly detained by Belarusian border guards on his way back to Minsk from the Lithuanian capital of Vilnius. They confiscated his passport and laptop during an identity check that lasted an hour.Ruhayn had left the country to avoid arrest following fellow ERB reporter Pavel Svyardlow’s arrest in June on a similar obscene language charge, for which Svyardlow was given a 15-day jail sentence.This is the second time in the past month that attention has been drawn to the shortcomings of the security services. Employees of a Swedish advertising agency flew a light aircraft into Belarusian airspace on 4 July and dropped hundreds of teddy-bears bearing messages in support of free speech in Belarus.A Belarusian journalist, Anton Surapin, was arrested on 13 July for posting photos of this stunt online and has been held by the Committee for State Security (KGB) ever since. Today is his 14th day in detention, which is more than the legally permitted period for pre-trial detention. He is facing a sentence of three to seven years in prison on a charge of helping foreigners to cross theborder illegally.
News May 24, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Danish embassy urged to react after security guards assault young photographer Help by sharing this information At the request of journalists’ organizations, press photographers and reporters are due to demonstrate outside the Danish embassy in Buenos Aires today in protest against a brutal attack by two members of the embassy’s security staff four days ago on Julian Herr, an 18-year-old photographer employed by the magazine El Guardián.“We urge the Danish ambassador, Henrik Bramsen Hahn, to publicly condemn this assault and to review the embassy’s contract with the private security company that employs the two attackers,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We also think he should talk to the organizations taking part in today’s demonstration, which include the Press Workers Collective (CTB) and the Argentine Association of Photographic Reporters (ARGRA).”In a statement sent to Reporters Without Borders today, the Danish ambassador condemned the attack, while insisting that neither embassy personnel nor embassy security personnel were involved.Herr was taking photos for a gastronomy story about restaurants and dining clubs linked to embassies. After photographing without any problem at the Swedish embassy, he went to the Danish embassy on the afternoon of 20 May. When he sought permission from diplomatic staff, they told him he could not come inside but could take shots of the outside of the embassy.“I had just pulled my camera out when I was approached by a security officer stationed at the entrance,” Herr told Reporters Without Borders. “I explained that I was a journalist and that I worked for a magazine, but the guy just insulted me more and more, invited me to fight and tried to grab my camera. Then another guy in civilian dress, without any identification, emerged from the embassy and both became more and more aggressive.”Herr retreated to the far side of the street (Leandro N. Alem Avenue), but the two men followed him and continued to threaten him. “The security guard then returned to his post but the other guy in civilian dress head-butted me on the nose and punched me in the face.” After falling to the ground, Herr photographed his assailant, who left the scene by jumping on a bus.Herr was taken to hospital with a broken nose that is preventing him from breathing normally and and will have to be operated on. The attack has been reported to the police and Reporters Without Borders hopes they lose no time in carrying out an investigation.“Must embassy security staff be reminded that their job is to guard the embassy, not to assault people in the street outside,” Reporters Without Borders added. “This attack was a serious abuse of authority.” Follow the news on Argentina to go further Latin American media: under control of families, economic and political elites News July 6, 2020 Find out more Receive email alerts News Journalists face archaic sanction of capital punishment in some parts of the world ArgentinaAmericas ArgentinaAmericas Organisation RSF_en December 4, 2019 Find out more November 19, 2020 Find out more News On eve of the G20 Riyadh summit, RSF calls for public support to secure the release of jailed journalists in Saudi Arabia
May 5, 2021 Find out more June 7, 2021 Find out more French reporter says he has been kidnapped in northeastern Mali Time is pressing, 20 years after Burkinabe journalist’s murder News Two Spanish journalists killed in eastern Burkina Faso Burkina FasoAfrica December 13, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Call to combat impunity on 12th anniversary of journalist’s murder News April 27, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information Receive email alerts Burkina FasoAfrica Organisation to go further On the 12th anniversary of newspaper editor Norbert Zongo’s murder, Reporters Without Borders urges Burkina Faso’s authorities to stop stalling and relaunch the investigation into his death. African countries must actively combat impunity in cases of violence against journalists, taking their lead from Mozambique’s response to journalist Carlos Cardoso’s murder in November 2000.“How is it possible that the investigation into Zongo’s death is still paralyzed,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Jean-François Julliard asked. “The years are passing but the wound left by this murder is still open and there has been no let-up in the public’s demands for the case to be solved. The newly-reelected President Blaise Compaoré owes his people the truth.”Julliard added: “Mozambique’s handling of the Cardoso murder should be taken as a model by the authorities in Burkina Faso, Gambia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Somalia and other African countries. Thanks to an effective investigation, the perpetrators and instigators of Cardoso’s murder were identified and punished. Impunity is not inevitable in Africa. Combating it is just a question of political will.”A stone commemorating Cardoso, an investigative reporter and editor of the business daily Metical, was unveiled on 22 November on Mártires de Machava Avenue in the centre of Maputo at the very spot where two gunmen blocked his car and fatally shot him in the head exactly 10 years before. Prior to his death, he had been probing the country’s biggest financial scandal since independence – the embezzlement of 14 million euros from the privatization of Mozambique’s Banco Commercial. He had named three very influential businessmen in his reports: the Satar brothers and Vicente Ramaya.In contrast to Cardoso’s death, the murders of many other African journalists remain unpunished. No one has ever been convicted for the murder of Gambian newspaper editor Deyda Hydara, who was shot dead in Banjul on 16 December 2004. Impunity reigns in Somalia, Africa’s deadliest country for the media, where murders of journalists are never investigated properly.Impunity also reigns in Democratic Republic of Congo, where the murders of Franck Ngyke and Bapuwa Mwamba in Kinshasa in 2005 and 2006 and the murder of Patrick Kikuku in Goma, in the eastern province of Nord-Kivu, in 2007 have never been solved.Zongo’s murderZongo was an investigative journalist and editor of the weekly L’Indépendant. His charred body was found in a car along with the charred bodies of three companions in the southern town of Sapouy on 13 December 1998. At the time of his death he had been looking into how David Ouédraogo, the chauffeur of President Blaise Compaoré’s brother François, died at the hands of presidential guard members after being arrested on suspicion of stealing from his employer.Following street protests, President Compaoré created an Independent Commission of Enquiry (CEI) to look into the multiple murder of Zongo and his companions. A few months later, the commission named “six leading suspects.”Three presidential guard members were convicted in August 2000 of kidnapping Ouédraogo and torturing him to death. In February 2001, the public prosecutor went on to charge one of them, Sgt. Marcel Kafando, with murder and arson in connection with Zongo’s death. But despite the gravity of the charges, Kafando was allowed to continue living at his home in Ouagadougou.An investigating judge, Wenceslas Ilboudo, finally ruled on 19 July 2006 that the investigation against “Marcel Kafando and any other unidentified person” for the murder of Zongo should be abandoned on the grounds that a prosecution witness had withdrawn a statement he had made eight years before. The ruling was confirmed on appeal.At that stage, the investigation could only be reopened if “new evidence” was produced. This is what Reporters Without Borders did on 20 October 2006, when it gave the Burkina Faso state prosecutor a copy of the original draft of the CEI’s report, before it was toned down on the insistence of two of the commission’s members, who represented the government.Passages about the contradictions in François Compaoré’s statement and attempts by businessman Oumarou Kanazoé to silence Zongo prior to his murder were completely eliminated from the final version of the report. The conclusions of the original report were also much more positive and detailed, and much more specific when identifying the “six leading suspects,” all members of the presidential guard.Despite the new evidence, none of the suspects was arrested and Kafando died in December 2009.

RESIDENTS of Keyes Park, who a few years ago were being offered 100,000 euro on the open market for their homes, could expect to receive no more than 35,000 euro if sold to Limerick City Council for regeneration purposes. Local councillor, Ger Fahy FG, told a council meeting that people’s “anger is palpable, as those who have poured thousands into their homes can now expect to only get 35,000.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “We must come up with a compromise price. I know of a woman who took out a 65,000 euro mortgage but only got 35,000 euro on selling her home to the council.“Out canvassing, we are being told of their upset on the doorsteps – are we buying houses in other areas of the city to take people out of regeneration estates. I can tell you of residents who are very closely knit – very happy to remain where they are, to keep close to their neighbours – they live in very close knit homes, and are content to live where there are major issues to be addressed”.Emphasising that the council can only pay the market value, director of services, Kieran Lehane, said this means that unfortunately, some people are losing out.“However, we have to play by the rules,” he told Cllr Fahy, who countered:“There should be an element of fairness on top of the rules“Areas are beginning to stabilise now, so I hope that capital gains will begin to stabilise too, and I look forward to exploring these issues when the new council comes into being and as regeneration progresses”.
