Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares christopherruane owns shares of Unilever. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Diageo and Unilever. 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. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. I’ve been thinking about how I’d invest £3,000 today into a trio of stocks to buy and hold for the long term.Here are three UK shares I’d consider adding to my portfolio for the long haul.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…Drinks championDiageo (LSE: DGE) is the company behind a panoply of beverage brands, from Sipsmith to Guinness. Its brands help to differentiate it from competitors. That can support premium pricing.I like the scale and depth of the Diageo ecosystem. Take its whisky portfolio as an example, which accounts for 23% of Diageo sales. As it owns a lot of different distilleries in Scotland, the company is able to sell single malts like Talisker and Lagavulin. But it can also use the whiskies in blends such as the entry level Johnnie Walker Red Label and more premium offerings like Haig Club.That gives the company some insulation against economic shifts and changing consumption trends, in my opinion. It can simply adjust its focus to the right product mix at any one time to match what customers want to drink and pay.One risk with Diageo as a stock to buy and hold is that younger consumers are drinking less alcohol than previous generations did in many markets. That could eat into future sales and profits.             UK stocks to buy and holdI would also consider putting £1,000 into JD Sports (LSE: JD) today.The company has proven its ability to grow over the long term. With people dressing more casually now even for work, customer demand looks set to grow. The company’s international reach in countries such as Australia and the US means that it can tap into growth opportunities wherever they arise.The company doesn’t just sell sports gear. It also has a growing gym business. That should enable it to differentiate itself from pure retailers, and build its appeal to sports fans.Risks include increasing price competition from online retail platforms. That could make it harder for the company to sustain its current profit margins in future.Buffett-style stocks to buy and holdConsumer goods companies like Reckitt (LSE: RB) and Unilever (LSE: ULVR) have a lot of the qualities appreciated by investor Warren Buffett. They have strong brands, pricing power, and large franchises.I don’t like the way Reckitt is still struggling to turn its infant formula business around, however. So I would invest my third £1,000 today into Unilever instead. Unilever does face risks of its own. For example, rising raw material costs threaten to reduce its profits in coming years.But I see it as a stock to buy and hold in my portfolio because the company has a number of advantages. Its wide brand portfolio gives it pricing power and the ability to sell at different pricepoints. That is good for sales growth in developing markets. I also think Unilever has a strong ESG story. That could help it attract environmentally conscious customers.

He is moving several thousand miles away to create a new endeavor that he is assuredly going to achieve success in, but as we visited he started talking about what he is going to do if his new enterprise doesn’t work out. I listened to him and when there was a lull in the conversation I said, “What you say is what you get! He looked at me and said, “what did you say?” And I repeated myself, “what you say is what you get!” And then I said, “Negative self talk has caused far more failure than success.”I think he got it.I don’t believe that it is a lack of knowledge that makes people fail, nor is it the difficulties they may encounter in the process, no, it is a lack of self confidence, their failure to believe in themselves. You are a child of God. We, God’s children, are called to success not failure. You can do whatever is good and in God’s perfect will. We have failed, all of us, but we can change the patterns of failure to those of success. Remember, there are no hopeless situations, the fact is that we have grown hopeless about them. All of us, that is you and I, have the seeds of greatness within us just lying dormant waiting to germinate and sprout and grow into trees of glory and beauty.

More so because referee Jaco Peyper found it absolutely hilarious to see his touch judge get hit on the head by the ball.Peyper has been a busy man of late, refereeing the Super Rugby Final, and then this historic clash in Apia. He will also take charge of the opening match of the Rugby World Cup on 18 September, between England and Fiji at Twickenham.Unfortunately there wasn’t a good shot of Peyper laughing, but it’s quite funny nevertheless.– View the Samoa vs All Blacks Match Highlights – WIN an All Blacks Rugby JerseyADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Funnies Related Articles 29 WEEKS AGO WATCH: American reacts to brilliant Nigel… 29 WEEKS AGO Video of John Kirwan apologising while wearing… 29 WEEKS AGO Simon Zebo reveals how ‘absolute lunatic’… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The assembly hall is a former industrial hall, located on an old industrial site in Valby, which has now been transformed into the lively district of Valby Maskinfabrik. C.F. Møller handled the transformation of Montagehallen (the Assembly Hall), where the original industrial expression has been preserved while filling the interior with modern commercial premises and homes, and also an event and community building.Save this picture!© Mark SykeSave this picture!Courtesy of C.F. MøllerSave this picture!© Mark SykeThe Assembly Hall is a listed building, and in connection with the conversion, C.F. Møller also contributed an analysis of the conservation value of the hall. This value relates, among other things, to the hall’s 200-metre long building volume, the façade’s red-lead steel grating structure, infilled with panels of red brick, and the characteristic gable motif, denoted by the hall’s curved roof and prism-shaped skylights. Save this picture!© Mark SykeIn order to preserve the hall’s unique patina, the new commercial premises and the event and community building, located at opposite ends of the building, are insulated from the inside by a climate screen of glass. Behind the glass, you can still see traces of the hall’s previous use. At each end of the hall, a new interior volume has been inserted, supported by an industrial steel structure in line with the building’s original expression.Save this picture!© Mark SykeIn the middle section of the hall, where the residential units are located, a new set-back façade has been built, ensuring good daylight conditions all the way through the apartments. With the help of a steel structure mounted on the new façade, the cadence and the long, rhythmic flow of the original façade are continued. The steel structure is also used to mount the balconies. Each residential unit has a balcony or ground-floor terrace, and a living room with a large west-facing glass section that spans the width of the entire room.Save this picture!© Mark SykeProject gallerySee allShow lessTai Tapu House / AW ArchitectsSelected ProjectsLeisure Pavilion / Bruno Rossi ArquitetosSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Lyshøjgårdsvej 51, 2500 København, DenmarkLocation to be used only as a reference.

End the siege of Gaza!

first_imgNew York — For seven weeks last summer, Israeli missiles, warplanes and ground troops assaulted the small Palestinian enclave of Gaza. This Aug. 26 was the first anniversary of the ceasefire that ended the slaughter. It was marked by a march through the streets of midtown Manhattan by 150 people who chanted “Resistance is justified when a people are occupied!”Led by the organization Jewish Voice for Peace, the demonstrators first gathered in front of the Museum of Natural History and then walked a mile through city streets to get out their message, with cries of “Remember and honor Palestine!” The Green Party, Workers World Party and others joined this protest as speakers condemned the killing of 2,300 Palestinians in Gaza and the wounding of nearly 11,000 more, one third of whom were children. The Israeli blitz destroyed 12,000 Palestinian homes and ruined much of the infrastructure in the crowded area where nearly 2 million Palestinians have been forced to live.Holding colorful signs and banners, they insisted that Washington “End U.S. aid to Israel! What happened is a travesty!” As of 2013, Israel had received a total of $130 billion in aid from the U.S. government, more than half of it direct military aid. (Washington Report on Middle East Affairs) Speakers also pledged their solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Photo courtesy of GoFrogs.comAfter falling in a 7-6 heartbreaker on Friday, TCU baseball bounced back to defeat Oklahoma on both Saturday and Sunday to win the series two games to one.The wins push the Horned Frogs to 5-4 in Big 12 play, leaving them at fifth place in the conference standings.Late comeback effort not enough, TCU falls on walk-off Despite tying the game in the top of the ninth inning after trailing the entire game, TCU baseball put up little fight in the bottom of the inning, giving up the walk-off single with no outs and falling to Oklahoma 7-6.Oklahoma came out aggressive, scoring four runs in the bottom of the first inning alone. TCU would not respond until the fourth inning, using four straight singles to drive in three run.The teams would trade shots until the sixth inning, when Hunter Wolfe hit his second home run of the year to put the Horned Frogs down one yet again, 6-5.Starter Nick Lodolo had uncharacteristically struggled in the contest, allowing six runs, three of which were earned, on 10 hits in 5.1 innings. The six runs and ten hits given up were both season highs for the junior.After Johnny Rizer tied the game in the top of the ninth with another solo home run, a walk and bunt single followed by a base hit to left center gave the Sooners a 7-6 walk off win.Rizer’s game-saving catch gives TCU 4-2 win to tie series at oneWith two Oklahoma runners in scoring position and two outs in the bottom of the ninth, center fielder Rizer made a game-saving catch deep in center field to secure a 4-2 win on Saturday to even their series with Oklahoma at one.Similar to Friday’s contest, TCU went down early as Oklahoma went up 2-0 after three innings.The Horned Frogs put together a comeback effort by scoring four runs in back-to-back innings to go up for good.Six players in the purple and white had hits during this 4-0 run, with first baseman Jake Guenther’s two-RBI single putting TCU up 4-2 in the top of the seventh.Charles King went seven innings in his first career start for the Horned Frogs, giving up 10 hits but only two runs in the game. His seven innings pitched were a career-high.TCU wins 6-4 over Oklahoma, completing series comebackAfter playing from behind for most of the series, TCU took control early on Sunday and never looked back, defeating Oklahoma 6-4 to win the series.Following two walks, center fielder Rizer gave the Horned Frogs their biggest lead of the series in the top of the first inning with a three-run home run to left field. It was the Cypress, Texas, native’s second home run of the series and fourth of the year.The game would go back and forth from there, with TCU giving up a run in the bottom of the first and third but taking a 6-2 lead into the bottom of the ninth inning. The Sooners were able to pull within two with atwo-out, two-run double in the ninth, but James Notary was able to finish his firstsave of the season to give the Horned Frogs the series win.All six runs scored by TCU in the game had come withtwo outs.UpNext:TCU will play their final of four-straight games on the road at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday at Dallas Baptist.  + posts Taylor’s monster slam highlights big weekend for TCU Athletics TCU baseball finds their biggest fan just by saying hello Colin Posthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/colin-post/ Twitter Another series win lands TCU Baseball in the top 5, earns Sikes conference award Facebooklast_img read more

Fourth radio station closed by government agency

first_img TogoAfrica Convicting “petrolgate” journalist of defamation would be disastrous, RSF says News News Togo court upholds “baseless and disproportionate” newspaper closures Help by sharing this information News Follow the news on Togo News Receive email alerts RSF_en center_img TogoAfrica March 11, 2021 Find out more March 8, 2021 Find out more to go further Togolese authorities urged to lift newspaper’s four-month suspension Organisation Reporters Without Borders is astonished to learn that Carré Jeune, a community radio station offering entertainment programmes, has been closed on the orders of the Telecommunications and Post Regulation Agency (ART&P). It is the fourth radio station to be closed by the agency in as many months.“This is unjust and against the law,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We fail to understand how what is granted by one agency is taken away by another. The ART&P is exceeding its powers. Only the High Authority for Broadcasting and Communication (HAAC) can close down a radio station and it needs to get the go-ahead from a court first.”After visiting Carré Jeune, the ART&P ordered its closure yesterday on the grounds of “non-respect for professional standards.” But the HAAC had given station until June to comply with the required standards._______________________________21-02-2011- Three radio stations closed for past three months over red tapeReporters Without Borders supports the campaign launched today by the National Press Owners Committee (CONAPP), the Togo Union of Independent Journalists (UJIT) and the Togolese Media Monitoring Centre (OTM) to draw attention to the plight of three privately-owned radio stations which the government closed three months ago.The three stations – Providence, Métropolys and X-Solaire – were closed by the Posts and Telecommunications Regulation Agency on 30 November of the grounds that their papers were not in order. They have since tried to obtain the required documents from the territorial administration ministry but without success. As result, they have been unable to resume broadcasting.Spots prepared by the CONAPP, UJIT and OTM that denounce this situation began being broadcast on all other radio stations today. The campaign will be stepped up next week with “Togo without media” days of action, sit-ins outside government agencies and protest marches in various cities. In support of the campaign, Reporters Without Borders wrote to territorial administration minister Pascal Bodjona today asking him to explain the slowness of the administrative procedures that have kept the three radio stations closed for the past three months. Pascal Bodjona (photo AFP)“Considerations of a political nature should not give rise to conflicts of interest between Togo’s governing class and media,” the letter said. “On the contrary, the role of the authorities is to preserve freedom of expression and to guarantee the constitution.” March 17, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Fourth radio station closed by government agency September 15, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more

The winners received award certificates and were treated to a viewing of “America’s Story” as told through the Booth Western Art Museum.

Palmer, president of the Pike County Cattleman’s Association, was the featured program speaker. Palmer told the student art winners that cattle farmers in Pike County are carrying on many of the traditions of the old West.“And our Cattleman’s association has about 400 members, making it one of the largest in the state,” Palmer said. “Our Cattlemen sponsor a Professional Cowboy Association rodeo ever year and the events are much the same as the riding and roping skills of the cowboys of the Old West.”When riding down the highways, the cattle farms in Pike County have the flavor of the West, Palmer said.“But what we know about cattle is mainly that we get meat from them, steaks and hamburger meat,” Palmer said. “But cows are about more than meat. About 98 percent of the cow is used and in many ways. It’s used in Jell-O and pet foods. Parts of the cow are used in medicines, in break fluid, as baseball covers and gloves and in fertilizers and paint brushes. There’s much more to a cow than meat.”The Rev. Alvie Walker closed the program with prayed and expressed gratitude that there are places where people can pray openly and in public.The students, their teachers and their guests enjoyed a pizza lunch at The Studio, hosted by the Johnson Center.
