Image source: Getty Images. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” See all posts by Rupert Hargreaves Is now the best time to buy Carnival UK shares? Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The coronavirus pandemic has impacted Carnival (LSE: CCL) UK shares more than practically any other FTSE 100 company. The cruise operator had to stop nearly all of its sailings at the beginning of the pandemic.It’s currently unclear if or when the business will be able to restart operations. 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 company has been able to raise billions from investors to keep the lights on. These actions have helped Carnival shares stabilise in recent weeks. And according to the group’s management, customers are booking in droves for 2021. As such, could now be a good time to buy the stock before its operations restart next year? Are Carnival UK shares worth buying? The world’s largest cruise operator has its primary stock market listing in New York. Carnival UK shares track this listing. The company also reports to its primary investor base in the US, which can make it difficult for UK investors to follow the business. Despite this drawback, Carnival UK shares have previously been popular with UK income investors. Before the coronavirus crisis struck, the stock supported a dividend yield of around 5%, which was above the FTSE 100 average yield at the time. Unfortunately, the company had to eliminate this distribution to save money. And it doesn’t look as if it is going to make a return any time soon. The group is currently burning through hundreds of millions of dollars every month with no revenue. Until it can restart operations, this will continue. The date at which the group is planning to restart is continually changing. Initially, the company proposed the beginning of August as a restart date. It’s now October at the earliest. Some ships have even had their restart dates pushed out into the first quarter of 2021. Uncertainty prevails These numbers suggest that it could be nearly a year before the whole fleet is back in action. A second wave of coronavirus could delay the timetable even more. Until this uncertainty is removed, it will likely continue to weigh on Carnival’s UK shares. There is also a chance that the company could run out of money before sailings resume. This is the worst-case scenario. Even though management has managed to raise enough money to keep the business solvent this year, an extended shutdown would pile the pressure on Carnival’s balance sheet. As such, it may be a good idea to avoid the shares for the time being. While the stock looks cheaper after its recent declines, a lot of uncertainty surrounds the business at present.It may be better to wait for the company to get a portion of its fleet up and running again before buying the shares as part of a diversified portfolio.This would remove the worst-case scenario and allow investors to profit from any upside as the group’s recovery takes shape.Using this approach may mean investors miss some upside by not buying Carnival UK shares at today’s low level, but it should also help shareholders avoid the worst if the company runs out of money before cruises restart.  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.center_img Rupert Hargreaves | Sunday, 16th August, 2020 | More on: CCL Rupert Hargreaves owns no share mentioned.

Two more journalists killed, one beheaded, one shot

first_imgNews Help by sharing this information News RSF requests urgent adoption of moratorium on arrests of journalists September 28, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Two more journalists killed, one beheaded, one shot RSF_en SomaliaAfrica to go further RSF and NUSOJ call for release of a journalist held in Somalia’s Puntland region Receive email alerts Follow the news on Somaliacenter_img News Radio reporter gunned on city street in central Somalia March 2, 2021 Find out more News SomaliaAfrica February 24, 2021 Find out more Organisation Reporters Without Borders is appalled by the murders of two more journalists in Mogadishu in the past two days, one shot dead at a checkpoint today and one found beheaded yesterday morning.”The horror, violence and cruelty of the attacks on journalists in Somalia are growing by the day, as is the pace at which they are taking place,” the media freedom organization said.With 15 journalists killed in connection with their work so far this year, 2012 is already Somalia’s deadliest year ever for media personnel. The second half of September has been particularly bloody, with a total of seven journalists killed in the past two weeks, five of them during the week of 16 to 21 September.The first of the past two day’s victims was Abdirahman Mohamed Ali, a sports reporter for the website, who was founded beheaded yesterday morning in Suqa Holaha, a district on the north side of the capital, after being kidnapped the previous night from his mother’s home.The Islamist militia Al-Shabaab acknowledged responsibility for his murder, saying he did not live in Suqa Holaha and claiming he had gone there to spy on Al-Shabaab members.Ahmed Abdulahi Farah, 32, a photographer working for the Yemeni news agency Saba, was shot dead today while aboard a minibus near a checkpoint in the southern district of Madina. According to initial information obtained by Reporters Without Borders, armed men opened fire when he took out his camera to take photos of the checkpoint.”Mogadishu has become a slaughterhouse for journalists and if this does not stop the free press in Somalia will die,” a Somali journalist told Agence France-Presse.In Reporters Without Borders’ view, the need is more urgent than ever for thorough investigations into the murders of journalists, at best to identify and punish those responsible but otherwise at least to shed light on the circumstances of their deaths. Concrete measures must also be taken to protect journalists.A resolution passed by the United Nations Human Rights Council on 28 September called on the Somali government to protect journalists and urged its partners to provide it with the necessary technical assistance to do this. This is the paragraph of the resolution about media freedom and journalists:UN Human Rights Council Twenty-first session”Also strongly condemns all attacks on journalists, including the deadly terror attack on 20 September and the assassination on 21 September of a prominent journalist in Mogadishu; calls upon the Government of the Federal Republic of Somalia to protect the safety of the journalists; and calls on all states to provide the necessary technical assistance to the Government of the Federal Republic of Somalia, the sub-national authorities, the national union of Somali journalists and individual journalist in this regard; and urges the State actors and non-State actors to refrain from intentional violence against and harassment of journalists and to respect freedom of expression.” January 8, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

CDC-Issued Eviction/Foreclosure Moratorium Targeted by Lawsuits

first_img  Print This Post CDC-Issued Eviction/Foreclosure Moratorium Targeted by Lawsuits Sign up for DS News Daily Early this month the CDC ordered a halt on foreclosures and evictions through the end of 2020. At the time, some pundits predicted resistance, which is occurring in the form of lawsuits, reported the Davis Brown Law Firm on its blog.According to the site, the legality of the CDC’s order has been in question since the September 4 announcement, and by September 8, a Virginia landlord had filed suit against the CDC.”The suit was filed in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia where the CDC is headquartered. The landlord claims ‘CDC’s actions are not authorized by statute or regulation … and are an affront to core constitutional limits on federal power.'”Forbes reported that the New Civil Liberties Alliance (NCLA) has since challenged the legality of the federal agency’s order. The National Apartment Association (NAA) has just joined that suit.The organizations have argued that the CDC “encroached on private property rights” and that “federal agencies do not have powers to waive state laws,” according to Forbes.Members of the rental housing industry told the news outlet that the moratorium “undermines obligations to provide safe and affordable housing.” They added that many providers of rental homes are unable to pay taxes, mortgages, insurance, and utilities due to residents’ non-payment of rent.The Davis Brown Law Firm noted that court decisions could roll in as early as a few weeks or as long as a few months. “Unless and until the court grants this request for a temporary injunction order, the CDC order remains in effect,” the lawyers wrote.”Landlords should continue following the order as it stands, as discussed in our prior blog,” they added.

Further, on 23.03.2020, the Prime Minister of India announced a national lockdown for a period of 21 days to prevent the spread of the virus.The plea states that in order to tackle the spread of the virus, everyone must practice social distancing at Anand Vihar. However, despite knowing the same, the Respondents failed to stop the migrant workers and thereby violated Article 21 of the Constitution of India and provisions of Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973 and Indian Penal Code, 1860.The plea goes on to highlight another incident which stems from the event which took place between 15.03.2020 and 17.03.2020 at a Markaz in Nizamuddin, wherein 24 people who had attended the event, tested positive.It has been averred that more than 2000 delegates were present at the Markaz and many have tested positive due to cluster transmission of the virus. In light of the same, Respondent No. 2 has failed to arrest the Nizamuddin Markaz chief Maulana Saad, who had organized the event.The plea submits that “the Respondent No. 2 has failed to explain till now that why huge number of people were allowed to be assembled at Anand Vihar Bus Terminal and Markaz in Nizamuddin” and that this failure evidently portrays the lack of inaction in protecting the citizen of the country from the spread of the virus.The plea also alludes to statements made by BJP Minister Mr. Kapil Mishra wherein he states that the Delhi Government “made announcements in the colonies where UP-Bihar migrants are staying in Delhi, informing them that the Delhi govt-run DTC buses will take them to the Anand Vihar Bus Terminal”.It has further been averred that the Delhi Govt has purposely cut the electricity and water supply of migrant workers, and that this requires an inquiry from the CBI.On the basis of the same, the following reliefs have been sought by the Petitioner:1. Direction directing the Respondents to show what appropriate steps were taken by them to prevent the spread of the virus.2. Direction directing the Respondents and the concerned authorities under them to take measures to stop people from gathering at one place and to enforce proper safety for the people who had gathered at the terminal and Markaz.3. Direction laying down guidelines, devising strategy to protect the fundamental rights by the Respondents and the concerned authorities.4. Direction directing the CBI to investigate the matter regarding failure to control the assembly of people at the terminal and Markaz.The petition has been listed before the Supreme Court on April 13.Click Here to Download the OrderSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Musical Memorial: Rex Locklar Memorial Jamboree set for April 9-11

A group of longtime friends of Rex Locklar’s decided there was too much history in that old building and too much love for their friend and bluegrass music to let it end.So, they began the task of giving the old schoolhouse new life but with the same purpose — keeping memories and bluegrass alive.“It’s going to take a lot of hard work and a long time to do what we want to do but we’re not in this for the short term,” Austin said. “We’re in for the long term.”Austin is among a group of friends who are working to get the schoolhouse grounds ready for next week’s bluegrass jamboree. That’s the immediate plan but the renovation and repairs to the building are next on the drawing board. Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Ole Rex’s Memorial Bluegrass Jamboree is set for April 9, 10, and 11 at the Henderson Music Park. Friends of Locklar, the founder of the Henderson Bluegrass jamborees, are committed to restoring a part of the old Henderson Schoolhouse as a staging area for future bluegrass festivals. Shelby Cargill, left, and James Austin have found that much of the lumber from the dilapidated building can be used to give the building new life.When Rex Locklar died a year ago, some predicted the end of the bluegrass festivals at Henderson. For 44 years, Locklar had hosted bluegrass festivals in April and October at the Henderson Music Park.“We came because of Ol’ Rex then and he’s the reason we’ll keep coming,” said James Austin of Pelham, Georgia. “This place will be a memorial to him and to the music he loved.”Ole Rex’s Memorial Bluegrass Jamboree is set for April 9, 10 and 11 at the Henderson Music Park. A special event of the Jamboree will be the naming of the highway from Springhill to Glenwood, the Rex Locklar Memorial Bluegrass Highway. The dedication service will be held at noon on Friday, April 10 at the site of the Springhill memorial sign. “The kitchen area of the building is still in pretty good shape but there’s just no way the building could be completely restored,” Austin said. “So, except for the kitchen area, we’re taking it down a little at a time and it’s going to take a long time. We are committed to doing this.But, what we’ve found is that a lot of the lumber can be salvaged. So the plans are to use that lumber to build a pavilion and we’ve got enough tin to do the roof so things are working out.”There will be an admission charge to park RVs at Ole Rex’s Memorial Bluegrass Jamboree as a way to cover electrical charges. Admissions are simply a donation. All donations will be used toward the renovation of the Henderson Music Park.Donations may be made to the park restoration at Henderson Restoration Project, 550 Burum Street SW, Pelham, Ga. 33719.
