FREE REPORT: Why this £5 stock could be set to surgecenter_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Image source: Getty Images Two picks from my FTSE best stocks to buy now list are Anglo Asian Mining (LSE:AAZ) and Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust (LSE:SMT).Best stocks to buy now pick #1AAZ is a gold, copper, and silver miner in Azerbaijan. Since the market crash, gold has enjoyed strong performance.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…Back in 2016, shares in Anglo Asian Mining were trading for 4p per share. As I write, shares are trading for 145p per share, which is a 3,500% increase. The share price has risen over 80% since the March 2020 market crash low of 77p.The miner has regained control of a contract in a politically disputed mineral-rich region. This contract could boost performance nicely. AAZ has seen year-on-year growth in the last three years in terms of revenue, profit and cash reserves. Last month’s announcement of full-year results showed record revenues and cash generation, which in turn cleared all of AAZ’s debt. This is a positive development for Anglo Asian Mining.Many FTSE firms have cut dividends due to the economic crisis. AAZ announced a special dividend at the end of January 2021 and paid a special dividend back in November 2020 too. FTSE 100 pickOne pick from the FTSE 100 section of my best stocks to buy now list is Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust. SMT is a publicly traded investment trust which operates globally. It looks for strong businesses with above-average returns across all sectors.SMT is on my best stocks to buy list for a few reasons. Firstly, it had an impressive 2020. The FTSE 100 firm’s share price rose over 100% in the past 12 months and is trading for close to 1350p per share as I write. It’s share price has risen close to 300% over the past four years too.Next, SMT is run by experienced investment duo James Anderson and Tom Slater. Investors are paying for the valuable experience these two  bring to the table. SMT’s performance over a long period  has been positive and is a testament to the team running it. Success over a period of time shows good flexibility and the ability to operate in different market conditions in my opinion.Finally, SMT has an emphasis on technology stocks within its portfolio, which I like. Almost 10% of SMT’s portfolio is made up of Tesla, which is also on my best stocks to buy now list. Other tech stocks in its portfolio include Amazon and Netflix.Risk and rewardSMT’s share price is at an all-time high and may not rise further as market conditions normalise after the crash. Furthermore, a lot of its stocks are considered to be in a ‘bubble.’ This means activity and performance can fluctuate upward in the short-term but stagnate over the longer term.Warren Buffett has stayed away from speculative assets such as gold. This is because these assets don’t provide their own cash flow. AAZ is also quite a small player in a large pond. Furthermore, it also operates in a volatile part of the world whereby politics can affect its operations and hinder progress.I understand these risk, but these two stocks are still on my best stocks to buy now list. Here is another FTSE 100 stock that I like. Jabran Khan has no position in any of the shares mentioned. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro.

Congregaciones episcopales y asociados comunitarios construyen viviendas asequibles

Darren Elin bendice los apartamentos renovados. Foto de la iglesia de Santo Tomás.[Episcopal News Service] Tanya Sears, que había enviudado recientemente, batallaba con un cáncer de esófago y se enfrentaba a otro aplastante desafío: un alquiler mensual de $800.No siendo ya capaz de costear el apartamento de dos dormitorios en el sur de Ohio que había compartido con su difunto esposo David, se mudó con su hija y su yerno, pero ansiaba tener su propio sitio.Luego Thomaston Meadows, un ministerio de vivienda de la iglesia episcopal de Santo Tomás [St. Thomas] en un suburbio de Cincinnati, la ayudó a cambiar su vida.“Fue como si me hubiesen liberado de la prisión”, dijo Sears, de 66 años, que ahora tiene el cáncer en fase de remisión. Residente de los Meadows durante los últimos tres años, su alquiler mensual de $250 es más manejable y a ella también le encanta la comunidad.“El Señor me libró, eso es todo lo que puedo decir] le declaró ella recientemente a Episcopal News Service. “Todo el mundo aquí es amistoso. Todo el mundo se ayuda”.En aproximadamente 12 millones de hogares estadounidenses, las familias gastan más de la mitad de su ingreso anual en vivienda y millones más gastan por encima del 30 por ciento que, por lo general, se considera asequible, según la Oficina de Relaciones Gubernamentales de la Iglesia Episcopal.Ahora, algunas congregaciones de la Iglesia Episcopal en Ohio y en California están alentando asociaciones comunitarias, y creativas iniciativas de vivienda pueden transformar vidas.Algunas familias se divierten afuera del recientemente renovado complejo de viviendas asequibles Thomaston Woods. Foto de la iglesia de Santo Tomás.Recomenzar cerca de Cincinnati: un enfoque de ‘panes y peces’Presenciar la mudanza de “una segunda generación de la misma familia” a una vivienda asequible, además de la muy necesaria renovación de esos apartamentos, determinó a la iglesia de Santo Tomás a poner en marcha “un reinicio”, según el Rdo. Darren Elin, el rector.La iglesia se incorporó a la lucha por las viviendas asequibles hace unos 27 años, al crear Thomaston Woods, una comunidad de 100 apartamentos para individuos y familias. Localizado en el exclusivo barrio de Terrace Park, Ohio, y no obstante bordeando “las estribaciones de Los Apalaches” en el vecino Condado de Clermont, la congregación ha brindado servicios sociales y de otras clases a más de 3.000 familias mientras aborda los problemas crecientes de la indigencia y la pobreza. Posteriormente, Santo Tomás añadió un nuevo centro comunitario y luego Thomaston Meadows, una comunidad de 13 apartamentos para ancianos de bajos ingresos.“Hemos llegado a desarrollar la idea de que, más que vivienda, se necesita ministerio, todo lo que sea necesario para cambiar vidas”, dijo Elin.Ayudado por los Servicios Episcopales de Jubilación de Cincinnati, el reinicio incluyó la renovación de las comunidades de Woods y Meadows el año pasado “y la renovación del centro comunitario está por terminarse este año”, dijo él.En el proceso, Santo Tomás ayudó a unos 46 residentes a convertirse en propietarios y comenzó a establecer una red de asociaciones ecuménicas, tales como servicios coordinados por asistentes sociales luteranos y una asociación con Habitat for Humanity, explicó él.“Dios nos llama a hacer más que sólo ofrecer un albergue… nos llama a ayudar a construir un hogar,… a ser catalizadores de una verdadera transformación”, puntualizó Elin.Una foto del exterior de Thomaston Woods. Foto de la iglesia de Santo Tomás.Servicios Episcopales de Jubilación está asociado con otras congregaciones y agencias en Ohio, Kentucky e Indiana y espera expandir otras asociaciones a través del Medio Oeste, dijo Kathy Ison-Lind, vicepresidente de vivienda asequible y servicios domésticos, en una declaración en la página web de la organización.Hace diez años la agencia tenía una comunidad de jubilación para ancianos de ingresos limitados; hoy tiene 20 en varias etapas de desarrollo, explicó ella.Elin dijo que Santo Tomás está actualmente preparándose para su próximo paso, concebido como “casa del estudioso” en otra parcela de terreno.“Ello permitiría a padres solteros que sean estudiantes de tiempo pleno tener una vivienda completamente subsidiada o subsidiada en gran parte además de atención infantil mientras mantengan buenas notas y participen en programas de apoyo a la paternidad y de finanzas personales”, dijo él. “Podrían permanecer hasta seis meses después de la graduación. Está concebido [este programa] para combatir el ciclo de la pobreza que hemos experimentado”, afirmó.“Es el relato de los panes y los peces —¿Cómo vives con recursos limitados? Los tomas, los bendices y le pides a Dios que los use, y tienes otros asociados a la mesa y consigues más”.La renovación añade viviendas en una iglesia de CaliforniaEn tanto contemplan expandir un centro comunitario ya existente para acomodar a una creciente población de personas sin hogar, la iglesia episcopal de San Pablo [St. Paul’s Episcopal Church] en Walnut Creek, California, decidió añadir 44 unidades de vivienda asequible.“San Pablo está rodeado por casas y condominios de un millón de dólares en medio de una creciente población de personas sin hogar. La mayoría de las personas que gana menos de $100.000 no puede costear una casa en Walnut Creek. Maestros, asistentes dentales, enfermeras, empleados de ventas, trabajadores de restaurantes y otros no pueden darse el lujo de vivir en la ciudad en la que trabajan”, dijo la rectora de San Pablo, Rda. M. Sylvia O. Vásquez, en un email a ENS.Donna Colombo, directora ejecutiva del Centro de La Trinidad [Trinity Center] dijo que la visión de una vivienda asequible llegó a plantear las preguntas “¿Qué pasaría si [probamos]?, ¿Cómo? ¿Por qué no?”.“No era que no supiéramos de la falta de viviendas asequibles”, dijo colombo. “Estábamos concentrados en servir comidas a las personas y albergar a la población indigente en nuestra iglesia por un par de semanas cada invierno, a la que le dábamos ropas y mantas, eso no nos dejaba ver la vivienda asequible como un ministerio. Pensábamos que alguna otra gente debe estar haciendo eso: no es nuestro ministerio, no construimos edificios”.Luego, ella y Vásquez recorrieron la propiedad “y vimos nuestro edificio abandonado y vimos que la comunidad crecía y crecía. Y dijimos: ‘debemos hacer algo con esto’.“Convinimos en que debíamos informarnos. Hicimos un estudio de viabilidad. Fuimos a las reuniones del Ayuntamiento, a las reuniones de planificación local y a las del consistorio e intentamos conocer cuáles eran los planes… para cerciorarnos de que se abordaba [el tema de] la vivienda asequible para las personas de bajos ingresos y los indigentes”.Llevó algún tiempo convencer a Richard Kemik, feligrés de San Pablo, y a otros, para darle calor al proyecto que se convirtió en St. Paul’s Commons.“Al principio no estaba convencido de que yo quería que la iglesia hiciera eso”, dijo Kemik, miembro del Comité de St. Paul’s Commons , que ayudó a planear el proyecto de viviendas asequibles. “Es un gran paso, el tomar parte de tu propiedad [de la iglesia] y dejar que alguien la usufructúe durante 60 años”.Pero, “yo empecé a preguntar y a hablar”, dijo él. “Crearon un comité para explorar esas opciones después de que [el proyecto] se le presentara a la iglesia y yo dije, sí, creo que este proyecto específico es lo que San Pablo tiene que hacer”.La asociación con Recursos para el Desarrollo Comunitario, una urbanización con sede en Berkeley cuya misión es la creación de viviendas asequibles para individuos y familias de bajos y muy bajos ingresos, ayudó enormemente a la iglesia en garantizar la financiación, dijo Kemik.Colombo explicó: “Dedicamos muchísimo tiempo abordando inquietudes y reuniéndonos con los vecinos” el año pasado, cuando el centro instaló un albergue de emergencia en invierno. A los huéspedes del albergue se les pidió que no trajeran carritos de supermercados al área después de las reuniones. “Eso pareció reducir la ansiedad de los vecinos. También les preocupaba que llamaran la policía a la zona, pero les explicamos que la mayoría de las veces cuando se llama a la policía es porque alguien necesita ayuda o tienen problemas personales”. Cuando St. Paul’s Commons se propuso, el proyecto contó con un amplio apoyo de la comunidad.El centro funciona como albergue de invierno desde el 12 de noviembre hasta el 30 de marzo en otro sitio este año, añadió ella. “Trabajamos según se presenten los problemas. Funcionó magníficamente; hasta recibimos cartas de agradecimiento al final”.Con aprobación de las autoridades municipales y un compromiso de $5 millones, la iglesia se propone comenzar la obra en 2017 y completar el proyecto un año después, según explicara Charles Couch, miembro del comité que lo supervisa. Aún se necesita la obtención de fondos adicionales.El proyecto ha despertado el interés de otras congregaciones; Colombo dijo que había recibido llamadas telefónicas de varias iglesias que estaban contemplando llevar a cabo empeños semejantes.“Preguntan: ‘¿Pueden venir y decirlos lo que están haciendo? Les digo que hay muchísimas maneras de hacer esto. Nosotros estamos haciendo apartamentos, pero uno podría hacer hogares grupales, hogares para ancianos. Sencillamente hablamos con la gente. Les sugerimos que empiecen con el discernimiento. Empiecen por poco. Crezcan lentamente. Logren que otros participen”.– La Rda. Pat McCaughan es corresponsal de Episcopal News Service.

Hollywood character actor Martin Landau dies at 89

first_imgFrom CNNMartin Landau, 89, a character actor who starred in the 1960s television show “Mission: Impossible” and won an Oscar for playing Bela Lugosi in the movie “Ed Wood,” died Saturday, his publicist Dick Guttman said Sunday night.Landau died at UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles following “unexpected complications during a short hospitalization,” Guttman said in a statement.Landau was born June 28, 1928, in Brooklyn and worked as a cartoonist for the New York Daily News before becoming an actor, according to the Internet Movie Database.Landau’s career spanned the decades. In 1957 he had a part in the play “Middle of the Night,” with Edward G. Robinson and ended up on the West Coast, according to the Internet Movie Database.To the general public, Landau was best known to the public for playing master of disguise Rollin Hand for a top-secret spy team in the 1960s series “Mission: Impossible,” in which his then-wife Barbara Bain also starred.Martin Landau LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply TAGSMartin Landau Previous articlePolice departments slowing down traffic in “Operation Southern Shield”Next articleApopka Burglary Report Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 The Anatomy of Fear Please enter your name herecenter_img Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. He was nominated for Emmys for each of his three seasons on the show and won the Golden Globe for best male TV star in 1968, IMDb said.Landau and Bain left the series in 1969 in a salary dispute. His career suffered for about a decade and he was forced to take roles in now-forgotten movies such as “The Harlem Globetrotters on Gilligan’s Island,” IMDb said.Landau’s career picked up when he got a recurring role on the NBC comedy “Buffalo Bill,” in which Dabney Coleman starred.He was nominated for three Academy Awards for best supporting actor, for playing Abe Karatz in Francis Coppola’s “Tucker” in 1988; the adulterous husband Judah Rosenthal in Woody Allen’s “Crimes and Misdemeanors” in 1989; and the aging horror movie star Bela Lugosi in Tim Burton’s “Ed Wood” in 1994. He won the Oscar for the “Ed Wood” role.Landau’s first big movie role was in Alfred Hitchcock’s “North by Northwest.” He also had supporting roles in “Cleopatra” and other movies and appeared in numerous television shows, including “The Twilight Zone.”Near the end of his career, he played Bob Ryan, an aging movie producer in the HBO series “Entourage.” The character’s catchphrase, with an exaggerated idea followed by “would that be something you’d be interested in?” became something of a pop culture joke.Guttman said funeral services will be private followed by a memorial service in August or September.

U.S. Out of Syria

first_imgThe city of Aleppo in Syria has been liberated from reactionary fighters — those supported by the U.S., Qatar, Saudi Arabia and others — who had taken over the city by deadly violence some four years ago.Most of the forces the Syrian Army was up against, like the al-Nusra Front, had been characterized as “terrorist” by the U.S. itself just a couple of years ago. Yet somehow, the powerful Western media have now managed to convince a lot of people that the liberation of Aleppo from these forces of extreme reaction was a terrible thing and that the government of Syria should be hated for it.This issue of Workers World has several articles rebutting that false conception. Our view is based, first and foremost, on the recognition that the United States is an imperialist country that has used violence for more than a century to grab and exploit huge areas of the world.Most of those oppressed in this way have been people of color. White supremacy has always played a big part in “justifying” colonial and imperial expansion.When the U.S. CIA, as early as 1979, first supplied and trained what would become the Taliban to fight a secular revolutionary government in Afghanistan, the excuse was anti-communism. The excuses for the costly and destructive wars the U.S. has waged since then in Iraq, Yemen, Libya and Syria have varied from needing to eliminate “weapons of mass destruction” to their leaders being “brutal dictators” whose overthrow would be a “humanitarian” intervention. Those excuses have all been lies.The suffering now in Aleppo has its roots in U.S. imperialist machination and destabilization. It’s time to end the phony “humanitarian” interventions conceived by Wall Street and executed by the military-industrial complex. Peace for Syria means U.S. hands off!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

As U.S. rockets hit Syria, corporate media start loving warmaker Trump

first_imgWithin a day of the U.S. missile strike on Syria, five major U.S. newspapers — the New York Times, the Washington Post, USA Today, the Wall Street Journal and the New York Daily News — published a total of 18 opinion pieces in support of Trump’s action and zero in opposition, according to a Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR) article on April 7.Up to that point, all these corporate daily newspapers had regularly published articles critical of Trump’s actions. However, after Trump ordered a missile attack on Syria, the monopoly press quickly fell into line and praised him.Television news followed the same pattern as the press.Anyone around and paying attention at the opening of wars against Vietnam, Iraq (twice), Yugoslavia, Afghanistan and Libya, will remember that the corporate media gave exactly the same type of unanimous support for U.S. attacks, whatever the pretext.The Pentagon — which now has four generals in Trump’s gang — launched 59 cruise missiles at a Syrian Army facility in the Homs province. According to the governor of Homs, at least seven civilians were killed and nine were wounded.Trump ordered the missile launch on April 6. He claimed it was because of an alleged Syrian government-led chemical attack a couple of days before.The U.S. missiles were launched without investigation or proof. Only groups like the White Helmets, an al-Qaida-affiliated, pro-U.S. intervention propaganda firm (tinyurl.com/m48792r) and the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a major pro-interventionist operation run by one individual in Britain, claimed they had witnesses.Capitalist media reveal their class interestsThe racist, warmongering propaganda campaign against Russia, Iran and Syria has been central, not only to the corporate media, but also to the “anti-Trump” rhetoric of liberal and pseudo-left-wing media outlets since the Democratic National Committee originally blamed the Russian government for costing Hillary Clinton the election.The alleged use of chemical weapons by the Syrian army, just like the accusations of Russian influences, has been parroted by the capitalist press without any hint of substantiation or independent verification. Included in the pro-interventionist media are renewed calls for the Trump administration to implement a “no-fly zone.”While these media outlets may have opposed Trump’s previous actions in rhetoric and even intention, they remain essential propaganda organs for the ruling class, including the Democratic Party and the neoliberal wing of Wall Street. Their “opposition” to Trump is a desperate effort to save the Democratic Party and dying capitalism; it has nothing to do with anti-racism or anti-imperialism.From the beginning of Trump’s campaign, the Democrats and the anti-Trump corporate media have attacked Trump from the right, calling him too critical of NATO, too soft on Putin. The truth is, no matter who is in the White House, U.S. imperialism will continue to orient toward wars of conquest. Trump’s “anti-war” populist rhetoric was demagogy to drum up support for his reactionary agenda.Now that Trump has openly attacked the Syrian government and Bashar al-Assad, Trump’s ruling-class “opposition” calls him “real president material” and all the bourgeois media march in lockstep with the war drive.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

27 Indiana Dairies Impacted by Dean Foods Decision

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News 27 Indiana Dairies Impacted by Dean Foods Decision Earlier this month, Dean Foods sent notice to 100 dairies stating that they will no longer be purchasing milk from those producers. The letter, sent to farmers in eight states, notified producers that as of June 1, they will need to find another avenue to sell their milk. In Indiana, 27 dairy farmers received this letter.“The dairy industry already had a lot on its plate in dealing with low milk prices,” said Randy Kron, Indiana Farm Bureau president. “Now, unfortunately, these Indiana farmers have the added task of finding a new buyer.”INFB has a representative on the American Farm Bureau’s farm bill working group in Washington, D.C. The group suggested many fixes for the next farm bill in order to aid the dairy industry, but the farm bill legislation has yet to move. National lawmakers included provisions to assist the dairy industry in the most recent continuing resolution. However, these protections are hardly relevant to the affected farmers until they find a new buyer.Dean Foods’ statement said their decision was based on an oversupply of milk in the market. Public consumption of fluid milk is down and the competition in milk processing has increased. This combination of events has hit family farms in Indiana hard.Indiana Farm Bureau says the best way to help alleviate the burden on dairies right now is to keep buying milk and buy more of it if your situation allows.

Controversy after broadcasting authority forces TV station off the air

first_img News Dominican Republic: News presenter and producer gunned down in mid-broadcast News Journalists wounded while covering street clashes in Santo Domingo News Canal 53, a privately-owned TV station also known as Cibao TV Club that is based in the city of Santiago de los Caballeros, was controversially forced to cease operations on 25 March on the orders of the Dominican Telecommunications Institute (Indotel), which accused it of “illegal broadcasting.” The controversy is due to the fact that the order was issued after Ernesto Fadul, the host of the programme “En Salud” and the brother of industry and commerce minister Ramón Fadul, referred on the air to President Leonel Fernández’s aides and other government officials as “thieves” and “protectors of drug traffickers” (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j3HCG4knjac).Indotel’s version of events differs in every respect from Canal 53’s. Indotel, which is the broadcasting regulatory authority, insists that all it did was withdraw two terrestrial broadcast frequencies which Canal 53 was using illegally, and that the station can continue broadcasting by cable.This is denied by Canal 53 owner Víctor Tejeda, who says the station has had to stop broadcasting altogether because the authorities confiscated its cable transmission equipment. Canal 53 had been broadcasting for more than 20 years.If it is confirmed that the authorities did close down Canal 53, then they chose the worst possible way to punish a TV station for comments that could be considered defamatory or for the illegal use of frequencies. Such a procedure is a violation of free expression. It also directly violates the relevant Inter-American legal standards.Certain government officials may rightly consider themselves to have been defamed by Ernesto Fadul’s comments. But in that case, they should bring a lawsuit and seek payment of damages. Indotel has every right to stop a TV station using frequencies illegally, but it has no right to seize the station’s own equipment and thereby force it off the air altogether.
