Despite revising up its medium term oil price projection by $10 (£6.23) a barrel, UBS said world growth would slow only by 0.1 per cent this year, from 3.9 per cent to 3.8 per cent.

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares According to CNBC, former hedge fund manager Jim Cramer said on Squawk Box last Friday that he intended to invest some of his own money in the markets by the end of that day.The Mad Money presenter urged investors “with long-term horizons to retirement” to put their money to work in the steep stock market correction.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…Okay. It’s a familiar message that chimes with Warren Buffett’s approach — he’s known for being greedy in the markets when others are fearful. And Cramer said he’s just going to “automatically” put his money to work whether he likes it or not. He reckons those that have waited and waited to put money in the markets “have no choice but to buy something.”Some sectors Cramer is avoidingBut why should we listen to Cramer? One reason is that he claims to have achieved an annualised rate of return of 24% after all fees for 15 years while he was running his hedge fund. However, a better reason is that the process of buying the shares of good-quality companies when they are on sale can be a successful strategy. We at the Motley Fool are generally keen on such an approach, for example.However, there are some sectors that Cramer says he’d continue to avoid, such as travel and leisure, including autos and airlines. He reckons such stocks could have further to fall in the current environment.And it seems clear that airlines have been particularly badly hit so far. For example, as I write, Wizz Air is down around 25% in just over a week. And International Consolidated Airlines has plunged by 33%, Easyjet is down 37% and Dart is 42% lower and falling, just like all airline shares seem to be.Indeed, we need nerves of steel to act on Cramer’s advice and buy share right now. But I’d do it. And I’d focus on trying to bag quality companies at knock-down prices. For me, that means searching firstly for firms with strong defensive characteristics rather than those operating businesses in cyclical sectors.Shares I’d buyI like stocks such as AstraZeneca, Diageo, British American Tobacco, Britvic, National Grid, Reckitt Benckiser and other such defensive operators. It’s shares like those that I’m watching closely right now and waiting for opportune moments to strike.But if you are investing regular monthly amounts in the markets, I reckon the important thing is to keep going. Even if shares fall further, the process of pound-cost averaging will help boost your returns when markets ‘normalise’ again.Indeed, I reckon it’s easy for those investors putting regular sums in index tracker funds, for example. In cases like that, the only adjustment I’d try to make would be to increase my monthly investment as the markets weaken and the opportunity to get more units for your money opens up. Kevin Godbold has no position in any share mentioned. The Motley Fool UK owns shares of and has recommended Britvic. The Motley Fool UK has recommended AstraZeneca, Diageo, and Wizz Air Holdings.

The price of the world’s most popular precious metal has reached record highs, and investors want to buy gold.News of the all-time record hit news headlines across the world, from the BBC to the New York Times. Today the gold price against the pound stands at an incredible £1,500 per ounce.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 yellow metal has risen 28% since the stock market crash in March. It has been driven by historic tension over the future of world economies. But there doesn’t always seem to be an easy way for investors to buy gold. Some investors might consider a rocketing junior gold miner like Greatland Gold, for example. But AIM-listed resources firms can be risky.The idea of hedging your portfolio against severe economic distress is simple enough.“People definitely use gold as a form of apocalypse insurance”, Daniel Strauss, head of ETF research at Canada’s National Bank Financial, told the Globe and Mail in April.But do you buy gold in a bar, like Fort Knox? In commemorative coins stashed in the loft? There must be an easier way.Gold as insuranceIn normal times the UK’s most popular exchange-traded funds (ETFs) extend to funds that track the FTSE 100 or FTSE 250.But with a global downturn on the immediate horizon, gold ETFs are rocketing in popularity.While they’re technically known as ‘ETCs’, or exchange-traded commodities, most people still tend to refer to them as ETFs. So for the purposes of this article I’ll continue with that nomenclature.You can buy gold ETFs in a Stocks and Shares ISA or SIPP, as simply as you would any other share or fund. Choose the amount you want, then click to buy. They are listed in London, just like most of the stocks you’d normally buy.The $8.2bn Wisdom Tree Physical Gold ETF (LSE:PHAU) is one of the most popular. According to its datasheet, it is “designed to offer security holders a simple and cost-efficient way to access the gold market”. If the price of gold rises while you hold a slice of the ETF, your investment is worth more than you paid for it.PHAU is backed by physically-held gold kept in HSBC’s bank vaults.You will pay a 0.19% annual management fee, and a 0.39% yearly charge for holding PHAU, but aside from that, your gains are your own.Is now the right time to buy gold?As a value investor I tend to focus on buying bargain, undervalued equities. You definitely couldn’t say that about gold. But as a flight to safety, there is no better option.And commodity analysts think prices will continue to rise as global growth slows and recessions kick in.Earlier this year, Daniel Hynes, commodity strategist for the Australia and New Zealand Banking Group raised his price target to $1,900 per ounce by December 2020. The gold price has already surpassed that lofty target.“The expansion of central banks’ balance sheets shows no sign of abating, while geopolitical tensions escalate. We think those investors who continue to raise their allocation to precious metals are sitting on a gold mine“, Hynes said.And an April 2020 Bank of America report, entitled The Fed Can’t Print Gold, said prices could reach $3,000 by the end of 2021.There could hardly be a better time to buy gold, in my opinion.

first_imgNew York – Members and supporters of Students for Justice in Palestine rallied at the Manhattan campus of Fordham University on Feb. 21 to denounce Dean of Students Keith Eldredge’s threat of disciplinary action against SJP lead campus organizer, senior Sapphira Lurie.The following morning, Lurie refused Eldredge’s demand that she meet him alone inside his closed office, with a white noise machine obscuring any sounds, and left in protest.“It’s unconscionable that Dean Eldredge, citing made-up policies, prevented a student from providing her side of the story because she felt unsafe,” said Radhika Sainath, a Palestine Legal staff attorney and cooperating counsel at the Center for Constitutional Rights. (palestinelegal.org)Eldredge sent Lurie a written reprimand on Feb. 23 for violating “University regulations pertaining to the Demonstration Policy” at a campus rally a month earlier.At the Jan. 23 demonstration, SJP activists and their supporters protested Fordham’s refusal to allow the group to register with the university, after over a year of bureaucratic wrangling, and criticized Eldredge’s handling of the conflict.Over a hundred Fordham faculty signed a petition charging, “Dean Eldredge will serve as accuser, prosecutor, judge, jury, and punisher.” (fordhamram.com)Completing the circle, Eldredge, who blocked SJP’s bid to gain university recognition a month before, had also been the protest’s target and the object of its chants and speeches.Discrimination and intimidationIn a Dec. 22 email, Eldredge wrote that the group’s support for “the call for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions of Israel presents a barrier to open dialogue and mutual learning and understanding.” (insidehighered.com, Jan. 18)The unprecedented attempt to suppress a specific perspective on campus drew condemnation from not only Palestinian and solidarity activists, but also civil liberties advocates from the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education.Jewish Voice for Peace, a national activist organization, has asked supporters of SJP to call Fordham’s administration, demanding that it end its ban on the group and stop retaliating against students for participating in its activities (tinyurl.com/hutc9tp).

Petitioner Ashwini Kumar Upadhyay, Advocate and BJP Leader, has urged that by using unbridled power under S. 2(f) of the Act, the Centre arbitrarily notified 5 communities viz. Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Buddhists and Parsis as minorities at the national level against the spirit of the TMA Pai ruling. Followers of Judaism, Bahaism & Hinduism, who are real minorities in Ladakh, Mizoram, Lakshadweep, Kashmir, Nagaland, Meghalaya, Arunachal Pradesh, Punjab, Manipur, cannot establish & administer educational institutions of their choice because of non-identification of ‘minority’ at the State level, thus jeopardising their basic rights guaranteed under Article 29-30. “Their right under Articles 29-30 is being siphoned off illegally to the majority community in the State because Centre has not notified them ‘minority’ under NCMEI Act”, it is advanced. It is submitted that while the followers of Judaism, Bahaism & Hinduism are being deprived of their basic rights, on the other hand, Muslims, who are in majority in Lakshadweep (96.58%) & Kashmir (96%) and of significant population in Ladakh (44%), Assam (34.20%), Bengal (27.5%), Kerala (26.60%), UP (19.30%) & Bihar (18%), can establish & administer educational institutions of their choice. Similarly, Christians are in majority in Nagaland (88.10%), Mizoram (87.16%) and Meghalaya (74.59%), and of significant population in Arunachal, Goa, Kerala, Manipur, Tamil Nadu & West Bengal, and still enjoy the same rights. Likewise, Sikhs, who are the majority (57.69%) in Punjab, and occupy a large segment of the population in Delhi, Chandigarh, Haryana, are entitled to the right to establish and administer their educational institutions. Similarly, Buddists are the majority (50%) in Ladakh but they enjoy the said right. “The injury caused to the followers of Judaism, Bahaism & Hinduism is large because S. 2(f) is manifestly arbitrary irrational & contrary to Articles 14, 15, 21, 29 & 30. Hindus are merely 1% in Ladakh, 2.75% in Mizoram, 2.77% in Lakshadweep, 4% in Kashmir, 8.74% in Nagaland, 11.52% in Meghalaya, 29% in Arunachal Pradesh, 38.49% in Punjab, 41.29% in Manipur but Centre has not declared them as ‘minority'”, it is submitted, stressing that Hindus are not protected under Articles 29-30 and cannot establish & administer educational institution of their choice. Similar is the grievance of the followers of Bahaism and Judaism, who are merely 0.1% and 0.2% respectively at national level. The PIL seeks the following reliefs: a) direct and declare that Section 2(f) of the National Commission for Minority Education Institution Act 2004, is arbitrary, irrational and offends Articles 14, 15, 21, 29 and 30 of the Constitution hence void; b) in alternative, direct and declare that followers of Judaism, Bahaism & Hinduism, who are minorities in Ladakh, Mizoram, Lakshadweep, Kashmir, Nagaland, Meghalaya, Arunachal Pradesh, Punjab and Manipur, can establish & administer educational institutions of their choice in spirit of the TMA Pai Ruling [(2002)8 SCC 483] c) in the alternative, direct the respondents to lay down guidelines for identification of minority at State level, in order to ensure that only those religious & linguistic groups, which are socially economically politically non-dominant and numerically inferior, can establish and administer educational institutions of their choiceClick Here To Download Petition[Read Petition]Next Storylast_img read more

first_imgMobile Police Department(MOBILE, Ala.) — A police officer was shot dead Sunday in Mobile, Alabama, authorities said.Officer Sean Tuder of the Mobile Police Department was killed in the line of duty while executing an arrest warrant late Sunday afternoon, according to Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall.The suspect, Marco Perez, 19, was taken into custody Sunday after the shooting. A Mobile County district court judge on Monday denied Perez bond and set his arraignment for Jan. 29.He faces a capital murder charge for the officer’s death, according to the Mobile District Attorney’s Office.Mobile County District Attorney Ashley Rich described Tuder as one of the city’s “finest officers.”“This tragedy is a stark reminder of the dangers that the brave men and women of law enforcement face every day,” Rich said in a statement via Twitter Sunday.Before Tuder, at least seven law enforcement officers were killed across the country in the first two weeks of the year.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

first_imgKuzma/iStock(COLUMBUS, Ohio) — An Ohio doctor has been charged with 25 counts of murder for allegedly ordering fatal doses of pain medication for patients while working as a critical-care physician.William Husel, 43, a former doctor at Mount Carmel Health in Columbus, turned himself in to police on Wednesday morning.He pleaded not guilty to the charges, which span from 2015 to 2018, according to authorities.“This breach of a doctor’s oath is vile and worthy of today’s actions — and that begins the process of holding this killer criminally accountable,” Police Chief Tom Quinlan said Wednesday during a joint news conference with Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O’Brien.Amy Pfaff said her mother, 63-year-old Beverlee Schirtzinger, had died under Husel’s care in October 2017, after prosecutors say she was given 500 micrograms of Fentanyl — an excessive amount considered to be a lethal dose. Schirtzinger’s family said they’d been told her prognosis was grim — something they now question.O’Brien said on Wednesday that authorities had focused on the cases involving Husel in which 500 micrograms or more of Fentanyl had been prescribed.“The expert witnesses that we talked to said, to a certainty, that a dosage at that level could not support any legitimate medical purpose and a dosage at that level would cause someone’s death,” O’Brien said at the news conference.Each murder count carries a sentence of 15 years to life if there is a conviction, O’Brien said. He said authorities did not have a motive.Quinlan said that around Dec. 7, 2018, detectives had received information that “numerous patients” had died while being treated by Husel while he was at Mount Carmel Health. The hospital said previously that a staffer had alerted it to the doctor’s behavior, sparking its investigation. A lawyer for the hospital then reached out to authorities, O’Brien said.Authorities investigated the circumstances surrounding the deaths of about 35 patients, Quinlan said.“Detectives reviewed approximately 35,000 pages of documents, consulted with medical professionals and conducted numerous interviews with witnesses and family members of the deceased,” he said.Mount Carmel Health, which now faces a barrage of lawsuits, issued a public apology when the news broke.In a statement Wednesday, Mount Carmel Health said: “We appreciate the County Prosecutor’s leadership and his ongoing commitment to justice in this case. Following the discovery of the actions of Dr. Husel, we notified appropriate authorities, including law enforcement. We have shared information with them and will continue to fully cooperate throughout their investigation. Mount Carmel has made and will continue to implement meaningful changes throughout our system to ensure events like these never happen again.”“There is nothing more important to Mount Carmel than the safety of our patients and their trust in us. Providing compassionate care to patients and their families is one of our most sacred responsibilities. Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the families of patients affected by this tragedy,” the statement continued.“At the request of the County Prosecutor, and because this is now an ongoing criminal proceeding, Mount Carmel will not comment further on the specific facts or circumstances surrounding the care provided by Dr. Husel. For more information about Mount Carmel’s previous statements and actions relating to Dr. Husel, visit the fact page on MountCarmelHealth.com,” the hospital added.Husel’s lawyer has said that his client did not intend to kill anyone and did not perform mercy killings, according to ABC News affiliate WSYX-TV.His bond was set at $1 million.Pfaff said that she hoped hospitals across the U.S. learned from the case and developed policies and procedures to prevent and red flag such actions as what Husel is accused of.“She (her mother) was the most caring loving person and if she was still alive today and she heard about this on the news, guaranteed she would have been crying for all these families,” Pfaff said Wednesday. “She would be cheering me on.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
