first_img 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. Legendary investor Warren Buffett generally applies clear principles when choosing shares to buy. He sets these out in his annual shareholder letters. That makes it easy to acquire knowledge from this talented investor. I often apply these principles to my own share selection.Here are three UK shares which I would consider buying right now. Each one offers some fit with Warren Buffett style investing principles, in my view.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…Strong brandsUnilever is the multinational consumer goods company behind popular brands such as Dove and Surf. Its focus on building distinctive brands helps give it what Warren Buffett calls a business moat.A business moat is like its namesake around a medieval castle: something that helps make it more defensive. Brands do this by making customers more loyal, which gives a company pricing power. That helps explain why Buffett holds shares in consumer goods companies with strong brands, such as Unilever rival Procter & Gamble. Unilever currently yields 3.6%, though dividends are never guaranteed for any shares.Risks include any downturn in demand and the impact of heavy expenditure in making its operations more environmentally sustainable.Drinks companies and Warren BuffettAnother company with a collection of strong brands I would consider for my portfolio is Diageo.The owner of Johnnie Walker, Baileys, and Guinness has a wide-ranging set of brands across lots of drinks categories. The high profit margins in the alcohol business help demonstrate the pricing power that brands can command. So, as with Unilever, I think Diageo has a strong business moat.Warren Buffett also likes companies whose customers buy frequently. He has often talked about his holding in Coca-Cola in these terms. As a shareholder, he gets a sliver of profit millions of times each day when someone drinks a bottle.It typically costs money for a business to recruit a new customer to its franchise. Keeping them and getting them to buy again is usually cheaper. So a business model in which customers buy a product frequently is usually more attractive to me one in which sales are spaced far apart.Diageo has a strong dividend record, with its dividend growing 5.4% on average over the past decade. The yield currently stands at 2.3%.One risk is the decline of alcohol consumption, which I have noticed picking up speed among many younger, health-conscious consumers.Business moatWarren Buffett’s company Berkshire Hathaway owns energy assets in the UK. Its subsidiary, Northern Powergrid, supplies nearly 4m customers in northeast England.Power grids are a classic Buffett pick. The high capital cost lends itself to a form of natural monopoly. Also, even if competitors wanted to build another grid, often governments would not allow them.Pricing is also often subject to regulatory control, potentially limiting profits. But the high barriers to entry in electricity generation and transmission networks make me view this sector as an attractive investment using Warren Buffett principles. FTSE 100 member National Grid runs such a network.The share is yielding over 5%. Its infrastructure assets provide an attractive business moat, in my view. The immobile nature of assets like transmission networks is a risk for National Grid, like many power companies, as it makes it more captive to political and regulatory risks.

Photo: Sheila Andrus[Episcopal News Service] Last December, world governments and officials came together in France to reach a historic agreement to reduce carbon emissions and arrest global warming. Earlier this week, they gathered again, this time in Marrakesh, Morocco, to continue their work.“COP21 in Paris was about reaching an agreement; COP22 is about the action needed to reach the agreement and to deepen and strengthen it,” said California Bishop Marc Andrus in an email to Episcopal News Service from the conference.Andrus represented Presiding Bishop Michael Curry in Paris last year, and is attending this year’s “COP,” or United Nations “conference of the parties” on his behalf. This year’s delegation to the 12-day conference also includes Lynnaia Main, global partnerships officer for the Episcopal Church and its liaison to the United Nations, and Jayce Hafner, domestic policy analyst for the Episcopal Church’s Washington, D.C.-based Office of Government Relations, as well as others from the dioceses of California and Washington, in the District of Columbia.“As an NGO present in 17 countries and known in its U.N. context as independent of any particular country’s government, the Episcopal Church is well-poised to continue its climate justice ministry and action on a global scale,” said Main, in an email to ENS from Marrakesh.The election of Donald J. Trump as the next president of the United States cast a shadow over the conference in Marrakesh, as he has vowed to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris Agreement and curb the country’s commitment to reduce its reliance on fossil fuels. The president-elect has called human-caused climate change a “hoax.”The Paris Agreement, which went into effect on Nov. 4, calls on the countries of the world to limit carbon emissions, which will require a decrease in dependence on fossil fuels in favor of renewable energy sources; and for developed countries, those responsible for the majority of emissions both historically and at present, to commit to $100 billion in development aid annually by 2020 to developing countries.While closely following developments in the United States, the Episcopal team is working to build relationships with delegations representing Latin America, the Caribbean, Asia and the Pacific, and Europe, places where the Church has a presence, said Main.This year, Episcopal delegates will be present in the “blue zone,” or the hall where negotiations take place, as well as in the “green zone,” where environmentalist, climate activists, representatives of for-profit businesses and non-governmental organizations and others gather for presentations and demonstrations. As with last year’s conference, the Episcopal delegation is leading daily prayers, chants, and meditation in the green zone’s public square. Themed prayer cards focus on courage, honesty, sorrow and interbeing.“Our faith bodies have long-standing advocacy efforts in climate action, and these will continue in the light of the United States’ presidential election,” said Andrus during a Nov. 10 press briefing organized by U.S. Climate Action Network.Last week, Andrus joined more than 540 clergy and lay leaders in a day of solidarity and witness with the Standing Rock Sioux Nation near Cannon Ball, North Dakota.“In North Dakota,” he continued during the briefing, “I and more than 540 other ordained clergy and thousands of lay people joined with Lakota water protectors in opposing the Dakota Access Pipeline, a faith and action witness that was named by our Presiding Bishop … as ‘the new Selma.’“The ‘Selma’ to which Presiding Bishop Curry refers was a signal moment in the U.S. Civil Rights movement in the 1960s, when people of many faiths along with people of civil society marched across the bridge in Selma, Alabama, and on to the state capital, to protest the infringement of liberties and life itself for African Americans,” Andrus said.Curry naming the Native American-led opposition to the Dakota Access Pipeline the new Selma “emphasizes that increasing environmental impacts related to use of natural resources and climate change are matters of ecojustice wherein the wellbeing of all in the web of life … are deeply interconnected,” Andrus said.The Episcopal delegation, working in both the blue and green zones, coordinates to track the work and negotiations happening at the conference. The negotiations work follows four streams: loss and damage, adaptation, finance, and ambition, said Andrus, in the email message.The Episcopal delegation uses climate-related resolutions passed by the Episcopal Church’s General Convention as the basis for its advocacy. The team is continuing the work begun in Paris of building a strong network of domestic climate action organizations, Andrus said.“At COP21 we found that the policy platform we took with us was in line with the best aspirations that emerged in the Paris Agreement, specifically holding warming above a historic baseline to 1.5 degrees Celsius,” said Andrus. “So, the Episcopal Church has made and is continuing to make contributions in advocacy that advance the best aspirations of the human community around climate change.”— Lynette Wilson is an editor/reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Your state is at greater risk from continued global climate change–including sea level rise–than it is from any changes in the global energy markets. Its economic woes and poverty can be improved as the national economy becomes more sustainable. (I support employing more Louisiana workers in meaningful jobs as part of a more sustainable economy.)

first_imgJon Meacham named canon historian as part of National Cathedral’s ‘Faith and Culture’ initiative Featured Jobs & Calls Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI [Episcopal News Service] Washington National Cathedral announced March 10 it had chosen Jon Meacham as its first canon historian, a role that is part of a cathedral initiative that will turn part of a long-vacant building into the new College of Faith and Culture.Jon Meacham. Photo: Washington National CathedralMeacham, an Episcopalian, is a former Newsweek editor and prize-winning nonfiction writer, best known for his biographies of American presidents and other historical figures, from President Andrew Jackson to civil rights icon John Lewis. Meacham also has preached in the past at the National Cathedral, and in his honorary canon role, he is expected to return to the pulpit for future sermons.“For many years, we in the Cathedral community have been fortunate to count Jon as a friend, guest preacher and trusted counsel on matters of faith, spirituality and civic life,” the Very Rev. Randy Hollerith, the cathedral’s dean, said in a news release. “In his new role, we look forward to Jon’s ability to enlighten and to elucidate, bringing together his rare insights on history, theology, culture and the American story.”Meacham will begin his open-ended term as canon historian with a March 23 installment of the cathedral’s “Honest to God” series, discussing the legacy of Lewis, a Georgia congressman who died last year.“Remembrance lies at the heart of our tradition, and I believe, deeply, that a contemplation of the past can shed light on the present and the future,” Meacham told Religion News Service.While continuing in several roles at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, Meacham will devote his time at the cathedral to preaching, leading discussions with clergy and thought leaders and contributing to the its mission at the intersection of the sacred and the civic, according to the cathedral’s release. During the pandemic, events led by Meacham will be offered to the public through the cathedral’s YouTube channel.The cathedral’s College of Faith and Culture, scheduled to open in 2022, is under construction in a 27,000-square-foot building that once housed the College of Preachers. The building, adjacent to the cathedral on the northeast side, has been vacant since 2008. The cathedral is renovating it as the Virginia Mae Center, with help from two gifts totaling $22 million.When it is up and running, the cathedral intends the College of Faith and Culture to be a hub of faith programming and spiritual formation, including conferences, forums, retreats and pilgrimages.

first_imgMonday Mar 14, 2011 England edge Scotland to take the Calcutta Cup at Twickenham England are one win away from their first Six Nations Grand Slam in eight years, following an attritional 22-16 victory over Scotland at Twickenham this weekend.It was a tough match, with an unconvincing display from the home side who were given a torrid time at the breakdown by a fiery Scottish side. Indeed Scotland were in contention throughout the match, and the result could have easily gone the other way until a late try from replacement Tom Croft.A superb individual effort from Max Evans, however, made sure that there was a nervous finish for Red Rose fans. The first half was a battle of the boots between Chris Paterson and Toby Flood and although the Scots threatened England’s line twice, they were denied on both occasions. Only a last minute drop goal from Ruaridh Jackson saw a turgid half finish 9-9.In the second half, the momentum began to swing back in favour of the home side when reinforcements in the shape of Wilkinson, Shaw, Croft and Thompson, brought their 232 caps to the fore.These changes, and the losses of Kelly Brown to injury and John Barclay to the sin-bin for Scotland, signalled a change in fortunes, and despite a try-saving tackle from Paterson on Foden, Croft barged over for the inevitable England score.England manager Martin Johnson admitted it was not the best performance from his side, and that they will have to improve significantly if they are to defeat the Irish at Lansdowne Road:“We won ugly” he said. “We highlighted their work at the breakdown all week and we knew exactly what to expect but we failed to execute. In a nutshell, there were far too many errors, far too many turnovers and we got out of jail a little.”Elsewhere, Any Robinson was disappointed. “I take my hat off to the lads. They laid their bodies on the line. I thought it was a very good Test match. I just said to the players I was delighted with the way they went out and tried to play today, both with ball in hand and defensively.” said the Scotland coach.

first_imgMonday Jun 27, 2011 New Zealand beat England to retain the IRB Junior World Championship title New Zealand’s Under 20’s won their fourth successive IRB Junior World Championship title on Sunday as they saw off a valiant England effort to win the game 33-22 in Padova, Italy. The much favoured Baby Blacks continued their dominance in the junior ranks, having now not lost a match since the tournament’s inception in 2008. They’ve now beaten England twice in finals, to add to their win over Australia last year. England came out firing and at one stage looked as though they might have sprung an upset, but a try in the 74th minute by Beauden Barrett sealed the win for the New Zealand team, their 20th in succession. England skipper Alex Gray was proud of the effort, but naturally disappointed. “We dug deep and fought back to within one point but they are a class act. They punish every mistake. I’m so proud of the boys yet so sad because it’s my last game for the Under-20s and I so believed we could end their reign,” he said.

first_imgProtesters chant, “No Nazis, No KKK, No Fascist UTK!” in Feb. 17 rally.Knoxville, Tenn. — More than 200 people marched in a cold rain at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville campus on Feb. 17 to protest a gathering of the fascist “Traditionalist Worker” Party.Those protesting the white nationalist gathering vastly outnumbered the 45 fascists. As more than 200 law enforcement agents stood by, many of the anti-fascist protesters shouted, “Who do you protect?”Many of those protesting refused to confine themselves to a “secure demonstration area” set up by police. But police kept protesters from directly confronting the fascists in a parking garage near the campus.University of Tennessee officials have said they did not invite the fascist group to campus and claimed they were helpless to stop the gathering.This is the third time since August that white nationalist or fascist forces have come to Knoxville for rallies, only to be vastly outnumbered by residents of the area and region telling them they are not welcome.The first was in August 2017, when a group of about 30 fascists held a rally at a Confederate monument. About 3,000 anti-fascists showed up to confront them.The second was on the day of the Women’s March in January, in which about 14,000 people took part. Less than 20 fascists held a “counterprotest” while being protected by police.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_img SHARE The safety organization, Farm Safety for Just Kids, has closed its doors. After 30 years of advocating safety on the farm, the board of the organization has voted to disband the group. In a statement, the group said Farm Safety for Just Kids would donate $5,000 each to the National 4-H Council and the National FFA Organization in “recognition of their important advocacy for youth safety in agriculture.” The remainder of Farm Safety for Just Kids’ assets will be donated to the Progressive Agriculture Foundation. Farm Safety for Just Kids will also give its library of educational materials and other intellectual property to the Progressive Agriculture Foundation to remain free of charge to the public.As agriculture has changed since the organization was founded in 1987, the Board of Farm Safety for Just Kids believes that the mission of making agriculture safer for youth will be better served by combining its resources with the Progressive Agriculture Foundation. The statement says “Farm Safety for Just Kids has accomplished what Marilyn Adams set out to do nearly 30 years ago.”Source: NAFB News Service By Hoosier Ag Today – Aug 11, 2016 Previous articleBrazil and China Consider GMOsNext articleTough Economy Producers Risks and Opportunities Hoosier Ag Today SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Farm Safety for Just Kids Disbands Farm Safety for Just Kids Disbands Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

first_img SyriaMiddle East – North Africa March 12, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders firmly condemns yesterday’s arrest of Mazen Darwich, the founder of the Syrian Centre for Media and Free Expression, while he attended a peaceful sit-in outside the interior ministry in Damascus as an observer. Around 30 of the demonstrators were also arrested.“The Syrian government has been controlling news and information for years, but censorship has been stepped up in response to the emergence of protest movements in the Arab world,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The decision to unblock websites such as Facebook and YouTube was taken above all for the media impact. Darwich’s arrest does not bode well for free expression in Syria, where journalists are now under closer surveillance than ever.”Yesterday’s sit-in was held to demand the release of prisoners of conscience. The Syrian media reported that interior ministry officials received several relatives of detainees yesterday, one day after several dozen people participated in a demonstration in Hamidiya market in the centre of Damascus.Officially, the Syrian Centre for Media and Free Expression was closed down three years ago but it has been operating without authorization. It is the only Syrian NGO specializing in monitoring the media and Internet access. In the past, it played a leading role in condemning decisions by interior minister Mohsen Bilal, such as his ban on the distribution of many newspapers and magazines in Syria.As previously reported by Reporters Without Borders, a Damascus military court sentenced already imprisoned writer and journalist Ali Al-Abdallah to another three years in prison on 13 March on a charge of “intending to harm Syria’s relations with another state”The grounds for the new charge were an article by Abdallah about Iran that was posted online on 23 August 2009, while he was in prison. It criticized the Wilayat al-Faqih doctrine, under which Iran’s clerics wield absolute power over political affairs. Held since 17 December 2007 for signing the Damascus Declaration, Abdallah had been serving a 30-month sentence. Under Syrian law, he will have to serve 18 months of the new sentence (http://en.rsf.org/syria-already-imprisoned-journalist-15-03-2011,39796.html).
