And certainly, the great slide in relative valuations that began around the time of the Brexit referendum leaves plenty of room for upside for the Footsie, even if you believe – as I do – that post-election America is looking a little frothy right now. Image source: Getty Images Yet as I also wrote, “Companies – and industries – are recovering at different rates. More than ever, picking the right stocks matters. But the bargains are there.” And if the Footsie had delivered even half the growth of the S&P 500, I calculate that it would be trading at a level of around 8,720 today – roughly 2,000 points higher than where it actually is trading today.A growing chorusOther people are now seeing – and saying – the same sort of thing. In the past few weeks, I’ve seen commentary in several places, all making the same broad argument. The Financial Times, Royal London, Fidelity, Cazenove Capital… and others besides.That isn’t to say that they – or me – are correct, of course. And so on, and so on. Are UK shares an early Christmas present? They certainly were. Industrial firm Weir Group is up 55%. Banking giant HSBC up 25%. Mining group Anglo-American up 44%. Commercial property landlord British Land up 31%. Oil giant Royal Dutch Shell up 26%. Pasty and sausage roll retailer Greggs up 53%. “Right now,” I wrote, “the Footsie looks under-priced. Certainly with respect to America, and – in my view – almost certainly with respect to the real state of the UK economy.”I was rightAs I write these words, the Footsie is now 14% higher than back then. To repeat: the bargains were there, in short. And later that month, and in early October, I made a number of judicious buys for my own portfolio.Upside aplentyYet I reckon bargains are still to be had. Okay, the Footsie is up by 14%. Yet the S&P 500 has risen by 10%. So while the valuation gap has closed a little way, it’s not closed by very much.

Malcolm Wheatley | Sunday, 7th March, 2021 Since February 2016, the Footsie has risen just 18%. (Yes, I know: another 18% rise. But just a coincidence, and over very different periods.) Obviously, investors’ total returns should be better than that, due to dividend payments. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Yet for me, my own course of action is clear. I’ve been buying UK equities since September, and plan to carry on doing so. Much as I’m a fan of international diversification, I think that right now, the UK stock market is too big an opportunity to ignore. Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

The UK economy shrank by over 9% in 2020, and – as we all know – a global pandemic is still raging, with new virus variants emerging. See all posts by Malcolm Wheatley Back in September, I pointed out that the UK stock market looked cheap compared to American stocks.As the Covid-19 pandemic took hold in early 2020, stock markets around the world swooned. But by late summer, most had recovered. America’s broadly-based S&P 500 index – infinitely preferable to the tightly-focused Dow Jones – was up 59% from 23 March’s panic-induced slump, and an impressive 4% higher than its 2020 pre-lockdown peak of 19 February.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…But the sluggish FTSE 100, meanwhile, stood at 5,886, a mere 18% up on 23 March’s equally panic-induced low point of 4,994. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Enter Your Email Address But on the same basis, the S&P 500 is up 111%. 18% versus 111%? That’s quite a gulf. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997”

Occupying the movies in Tallahassee, Fla. Birmingham, Ala., arrests. Civil Rights leader Medgar Evers assassinated. Washington, D.C. Lunch counter in Atlanta In 1963, despite the tremendous campaigns aimed at breaking down legalized segregation and national oppression that had been going on for eight years, the demand for federal civil rights legislation remained stalled due to Southern segregationist influence, Northern indifference and political avoidance by the John F. Kennedy administration. Nonetheless, by the spring of this momentous year, things would begin to rapidly shift in favor of the African-American people and their movement allies.In 1954, the United States Supreme Court had declared that “separate but equal” public school systems were unconstitutional. Nevertheless, by 1963 the majority of the African-American population, most of whom remained in the South, hardly noticed any compliance with this ruling.Between 1955 and 1962, African Americans had been in motion, determined to end apartheid in the U.S. A civil rights bill passed in 1957 empowered the Justice Department to take action against county governments that refused to allow universal suffrage. This law led in part to the outbreak of the movement in Fayette County, Tenn., in 1959-1960.Viola McFerren and John McFerren led local activists in 1959 in organizing the Fayette County Civic and Welfare League. In 1960, they set out to register African Americans to vote in the upcoming presidential election.To stop this effort, the white landowners in this southwest Tennessee county drove hundreds of African-American tenant farmers off their land for daring to register. The movement then established a “tent city,” the first of its kind during this period, which drew national support.In 1960, the student sit-in movement began. Thousands protested Jim Crow segregation, which led to hundreds of arrests. In April of that year, the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee was formed and became the most militant organization within the Civil Rights Movement.After the Freedom Rides of 1961, where scores of anti-racists challenged the apartheid laws despite arrests and beatings, the abolition of segregation in interstate travel was won in practice. Nevertheless, key centers of intransigence, such as Birmingham, Ala., were fiercely resistant to desegregation.Birmingham sparks nationwide resistanceIt was the eruption of the movement in Birmingham in the spring of 1963 that captured the attention of the nation and the world. Both SNCC and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, founded by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., had been organizing in the city, one of the most industrialized in the South.Several thousand people, mainly children, were arrested by the police and jailed. Dr. King, Ralph Abernathy and Fred Shuttlesworth were all arrested and beaten by the racist police.The struggle came to a head on May 5, when thousands of mostly youth marched through the African-American community to the downtown area. Police Chief “Bull” Connor ordered fire hoses turned on the people.In response to the repression on May 5, the first significant urban rebellion of the 1960s occurred. James Forman, executive secretary of SNCC, described the events that day, saying, “The police had cordoned off the intersections leading to downtown and started shooting water on people. Bricks and rocks started flying back at the police and the firemen.” (“The Making of Black Revolutionaries,” 1972, p. 315)Forman went on to point out, “For over 45 minutes, there was a chase in and out of alleys and streets. Other Black people joined in the fight against the police. The ‘riots’ that day in Birmingham received wide public attention — they were a prelude to Harlem ’64, Watts ’65, Newark and Detroit ’67.”Large demonstrations took place throughout the South that spring and summer. In Danville, Va., African Americans marched against racism and police brutality, meeting violent repression on June 10.President Kennedy delivered a speech on civil rights on the evening of June 11, saying at the conclusion that he would introduce federal civil rights legislation. Just a few hours later, in Jackson, Miss., Medgar Evers, state field secretary of the NAACP, was gunned down in his driveway by white racist Byron De La Beckwith. The killer avoided conviction for this crime for over three decades.In response to the assassination of Medgar Evers and other issues, the Detroit Council for Human Rights, headed by the Rev. C.L. Franklin, organized on June 23 the largest march to that date for civil rights. Hundreds of thousands marched down Detroit’s Woodward Avenue, led by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with the support of the then United Auto Workers president, Walter Reuther.King would deliver his first “I Have a Dream” speech at Cobo Hall following the Detroit march. It was the success of this demonstration which fueled the plans for the massive and historic March on Washington that was held on Aug. 28.Repression continuesDespite this outpouring of mass sentiment in favor of civil rights, the racists struck back on Sept. 15, when the Ku Klux Klan bombed the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, a center of the movement. Four African-American girls were killed: Addie Mae Collins, Cynthia Wesley, Carole Robertson and Denise McNair .It would take until 1977 for the first of the Klansmen associated with the crime, Robert Chambliss, to be convicted. Two other Klansmen, Thomas E. Blanton and Bobby Frank Cherry, were later convicted in 2001 and 2002 respectively for the bombing and murders.Two months after the church bombing, on Nov. 22, President Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas. The murder was reflective of the atmosphere of violence and intolerance in the U.S. at the time.On Dec. 1, Malcolm X, during the question and answer period after a speech at the Manhattan Center in New York City, described the assassination of Kennedy as a case of “the chickens coming home to roost,” meaning that the violence inflicted upon African Americans and other oppressed people throughout the world was now impacting the leaders of the U.S.His comments, which received wide press coverage, led to his suspension and subsequent departure from the Nation of Islam. Malcolm X would form the Organization of Afro-American Unity (OAAU) the following year and tour the Middle East and Africa.These developments in 1963 would result in more militant actions in the following years of the decade. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 were not enough to stave off the urban rebellions which occurred in hundreds of cities throughout the country.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this Washington, D.C.

National Corn Growers Launch Ethanol Video Contest SHARE SHARE The National Corn Growers Association is taking a page out of the Iowa Renewable Fuels Association Fuel the Future video competition to launch their own video contest called Ethanol Rocks. NCGA is looking for video entries that promote the advantages ethanol brings to American consumers during a year when those consumers will begin to see a 15 percent blend of the fuel at the pump.Chad Willis, chairman of NCGA’s Ethanol Committee told HAT the contest should be a good way to engage the nation’s youth in the discussion about ethanol’s benefits.“Ethanol over the last few years has had some negative publicity and we know it doesn’t get taught in the schools. People are so far removed from the farm anymore and this is a way to engage students. They’re very creative and everybody is connected on the internet nowadays so we just wanted to tap into the youth and their creativity.”Video submissions are expected to help demonstrate how ethanol is better for the environment, helps lessen the need for foreign oil and keeps the cost of gasoline down.“Oh it most definitely does,” Willis said. “There was a study out of Iowa State last year that said ethanol reduces the price of wholesale gasoline by about 89 cents a gallon. That wasn’t us coming up with those figures. That was Iowa State University, so I know that it is a very economical means to help lower the gas prices in the U.S.Ethanol Rocks first place prize money of $1,500 will be awarded in both high school and college student categories in addition to $500 second place awards for both levels. Willis said distribution of Ethanol Rocks video contest application and rules packets online and to FFA chapters and members of the National Science Teachers Association has begun. The contest is looking for short videos (2 minutes or less) from active high school and college students from all scholastic backgrounds and majors, and entries can be submitted by individuals, groups or organizations. Judging will be based on criteria such as creativity, impact and general appeal.Entry deadline is 5 p.m. CST Monday, October 15.[audio:https://www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2012/05/NCGA-Ethanol-Rocks-contest.mp3|titles=NCGA Ethanol Rocks contest]Willis, from just west of Minneapolis in the town of Willmar, said maintaining the national RFS2 is one item high on the priority list of the NCGA Ethanol Committee this year.“Other things we’re still very active in are the blender pump promotion and talking about flex fuel vehicles being able to utilize the higher blends. One other thing coming up fast is keeping an eye on cellulosic ethanol. They’re starting to break ground on plants also, so there will be more ethanol coming in to the marketplace, not just corn ethanol.”Hear the full HAT interview:[audio:https://www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2012/05/Chad-Willis-talks-ethanol.mp3|titles=Chad Willis talks ethanol]Audio Playerhttps://media.blubrry.com/hoosieragtoday/p/www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2012/05/NCGA-Ethanol-Rocks-contest.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Podcast: Play in new window | Download | EmbedSubscribe: RSS Home News Feed National Corn Growers Launch Ethanol Video Contest Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – May 8, 2012 Facebook Twitter Previous articleCash Grain Marketing Made EasyNext articleGary Wilhelmi 5/9/2012 PM Comment Andy Eubank
Linkedin World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Listen: Frogflix (Season 2): Episode 13 printWhen it comes to weekend plans, one returning TCU organization is working to bring more students onto campus.TheEnd, a student-run organization that provides safe and free entertainment for all students on Friday and Saturday nights, has played a role in students weekends for the past two years. The organization plans to continue providing exciting programs for students this fall.“I want to make theEnd the number one choice for students on the weekend,” theEnd director, junior Kyler Tesch said. “I want theEnd to be the thing that students think of first.”This year, sophomore Ashley Russell, the director of marketing for theEnd, said the organization will continue to encourage students to attend events through various social media platforms.“We do social media contests for each of our events to hopefully entice people to participate and then also follow [theEnd],” Russell said. Russell also said she uses graphics and videos on theEnd’s social media accounts to allow students to learn more about the individuals performing at TCU.Tesch said the work Russell has done with the social media accounts helps encourage students who live off-campus to attend events as well.“Whether it is our Instagram, Twitter or our Snapchat, [Russell] does a great job; and, our goal is for people to be following [social media accounts],” Tesch said. “Not just on-campus students, but off-campus students. By doing that, reaching out to them, they’re aware of our events.”First-year Allison Franken said theEnd events are a great way for her to get to know other students.“I really like how creative they have been so far,” Franken said. “I’m excited to see what comes next.”Franken is not the only student that said she enjoys theEnd events. Senior Lauren Graffeo said theEnd provides alternative options for students on the weekends.“I think [theEnd] is a really good organization to have on campus,” Graffeo said. “It is a great outlet for students who want to do something on campus and don’t necessarily want to go out on the weekends.”Events range from comedy shows to paint parties. Rachel Platten, Daymond John, and Nasim Pedrad are some individuals who will be coming to TCU this semester.TheEnd will be hosting the first performer of the semester, Anjelah Johnson, on Friday night. Tickets are now available for students online. Students are allowed to bring one guest to the event.

They could file two other appeals before the supreme court, but their lawyer said they now preferred to pin their hopes on a presidential pardon.“Myanmar’s president can restore a semblance of dignity to his country’s legal institutions by pardoning these two journalists,” said RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk.“They have already been held for 497 days on trumped-up charges. How can we still believe in a democratic transition in Myanmar when the justice system flouts press freedom in this way?”Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo did some remarkable investigative reporting on a massacre of Rohingya civilians by soldiers in September 2017 in Inn Din, a village in the north of Rakhine state, which was widely seen as an act of genocide. Their arrest was regarded as a punishment orchestrated by the security forces. They were awarded the UNESCO Press Freedom Prize in recognition of their work.The region where this act of ethnic cleansing took place, the traditional home of Myanmar’s Rohingya community, continues to be completely inaccessible to journalists aside from those who have been taken there on pathetic propaganda visits that are tightly controlled by the authorities.Myanmar dropped down a place in the 2019 World Press Freedom Index, resulting from the deterioration in “environment and self-censorship,” “transparency” and “media independence” – three of the seven indicators used to determine a country’s ranking. Myanmar is currently ranked 138th out of 180 countries
