UK share prices have enjoyed a strong couple of months as news of a Covid-19 vaccine has boosted investor confidence.It’s possible that we could be on the cusp of a new bull market. And I for one am looking for top British companies to buy for my Stocks and Shares ISA today. Let me talk you through two cheap UK shares I’m thinking of adding to my shares portfolio for 2021:5G 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…A top UK share as house prices soarInvestors at MJ Gleeson (LSE: GLE) won’t have to wait long for exceptional profits growth. City boffins reckon annual earnings here will soar 402% in the current fiscal year ending June 2021. And as a consequence this UK share also trades on a low forward PEG ratio of 0.1.It’s perhaps no great surprise that analysts are so bullish over the housebuilder’s earnings outlook. House prices in the UK are rising at their fastest rate for several years. And this small cap is opening sites at a record pace to capitalise on this fabulous trading landscape. It has opened 11 new building sites since the beginning of July and plans to have another 14 in operation by the end of the current fiscal year.I believe that this UK share has all the tools to continue thriving too. On top of those encouraging build rates — it hopes to put up 2,000 new homes a year by the middle of 2022 — MJ Gleeson is making solid progress in lifting its prices in line with the broader market. Besides, the small cap can expect significant factors like low interest rates and government support via Help to Buy to keep buyer demand bubbling nicely well into the new decade.That’s the spirit!Profits at Stock Spirits Group (LSE: STCK) are also expected to rocket impressively this fiscal year. City experts reckon annual earnings will soar 104% in the 12 months to September 2021. This leaves it trading on a PEG ratio of 0.1. This UK share offers investors an added sweetener through its chunky 3.3% dividend yield too.Stock Spirits sells the bulk of its vodka, brandy, and other drinks to the emerging markets of Central and Eastern Europe. It can expect demand for its products to keep rising too as wealth levels in these territories steadily grow. Its products also have the brand strength to overpower their rivals, too (its market share of the Polish vodka market sits at five-year highs around 32%).And finally, Stock Spirits is the perfect buy for those fearful of a long and bumpy economic recovery in Europe. Manufacturers and retailers and alcohol are reliable profits generators during economic upturns and downturns. And this UK share’s latest financial update illustrates this point perfectly. Revenues here rose 6.9% in the fiscal year to September 2020 as volumes increased 1.8%. This was despite Covid-19 lockdowns hammering sales in the hospitality sector.

There’s a saying, “Better late than never.” In this case, “late” refers to the century-long attempt to pass anti-lynching legislation in the U.S.More than 200 anti-lynching bills had previously been introduced into Congress without any of them being passed. Southerners and other racist congresspeople resisted any anti-lynching legislation for over a hundred years. The first anti-lynching bill was introduced in 1901, and then a wave of bills followed, starting with an attempt in 1917. This targeted Missouri state officials for “failing to provide equal protection under the laws to anyone victimized by a mob.” (Washington Post, Dec. 28; tinyurl.com/ycr2vrl9)Finally, on Dec. 19, the U.S. Senate unanimously passed the Justice for Lynching Act, making lynching a federal hate crime. The bill was introduced in June 2018 by Democratic Sens. Kamala Harris (Calif.); Cory Booker (N.J.); and Republican Tim Scott (S.C.). The bill classified lynching as the “ultimate expression of racism in the U.S. following Reconstruction.” (tinyurl.com/y8a28s72)Lynching — terror tool of white supremacyAccording to the Washington Post, between 1882 and 1968, at least 4,742 reported lynchings of African-American men, women and children took place at the hands of white mobs, predominantly in the South. Lynching of African Americans was used as a terroristic strategy and tool to maintain white dominance and supremacy throughout the U.S. Ninety-nine percent of perpetrators went unpunished by state and local officials, including those who admitted to and bragged about committing the act. (Dec. 28)The 1863 Emancipation Proclamation had been followed by the Reconstruction “experiment” period and then by close to 100 years of the Jim Crow/apartheid system of legal segregation between white and Black citizens. In 1892, journalist Ida B. Wells-Barnett publicly exposed the rape myth that justified lynchings and racist oppression with false accusations of Black men for supposedly raping white women. Wells-Barnett, born into slavery in 1862, provided the true facts in “Southern Horrors: The Lynch Law in All Its Phases.”The NAACP, founded in 1909, issued a report on 30 years of lynching between 1889-1919, denouncing the U.S. as “the only advanced nation whose government had tolerated lynching.” Noted scholar and activist W.E.B. DuBois published articles in the NAACP magazine, the Crisis, highlighting the horrors of lynching, and advocated legislation to stop it. Beginning in 1920, after every lynching the NAACP hung a flag from its New York offices with the words: “A Man Was Lynched Yesterday.” In the 1930s the NAACP continued its attempts to secure federal anti-lynching legislation. However, Southern Democrats and Northern Republicans defeated every sponsored bill. In 1935, the Communist Party USA exhibited anti-lynching art in New York to confront the horrors of lynching. Showing grotesque mangled and burned bodies, the art also displayed crowds of white onlookers, including children, celebrating these atrocities. In 1939, singer Billie Holiday recorded a historic song about lynching, “Strange Fruit.” The words were written by Abel Meeropol, a Jewish poet and high school teacher, after he saw photographs of Black victims dangling from trees. These photos were lynching “souvenirs,” often made into postcards for racists to send to friends. A member of the Communist Party, Meeropol adopted the sons of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, who were executed in 1953 after a bogus conspiracy conviction by the U.S. government for allegedly giving or selling secrets to the Soviet Union. The death penalty as lynchingToday, the fight against lynching continues in the South with efforts sparked by Bryan Stevenson, who founded the Equal Justice Initiative based in Montgomery, Ala., in 1994. Stevenson holds that fighting racial injustice is critical to advancing equal justice for all, and racism must be challenged in order to protect basic human rights.Stevenson also stresses the link of enslavement and lynching to the modern-day prison-industrial complex and death penalty. Stevenson said in a May 1 interview with Democracy Now!: “I think the death penalty is lynching’s stepson.” (tinyurl.com/y78w6evv)The EJI has opened the “Legacy Museum: from Enslavement to Mass Incarceration” in Montgomery, as well as the National Memorial for Peace and Justice, paying tribute to victims of lynching. The memorial includes hundreds of jars of soil collected from lynching sites as well as iron rectangles dangling in the air, engraved with the names of those murdered. (museumandmemorial.eji.org/museum)The power of institutional racism and the unchecked violence of hatred still permeate all aspects of politics, law and culture in U.S. society. The civil and human rights of African Americans have been violated since the first forced arrival of enslaved Africans in 1619. Domestic terrorism targeting Black people continues to this day. The year 2019 marks 400 years of inequality and oppression of Black people in the U.S. Let it also mark renewed struggle against white supremacy.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
NewsLocal NewsRoxboro Road residents in Limerick want answers on Waller’s WellBy Alan Jacques – April 24, 2014 1367 Limerick City East local election candidate Sarah Lee Kiely at Waller’s Well development on Roxboro RoadJANESBORO-based local election candidate Sarah Lee Kiely is calling on Limerick City Council for answers over plans for the disused Waller’s Well housing development.The Fine Gael hopeful for Limerick City East said residents in the area want information about the status of the development and the council’s plans for it.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “The situation is that there is a fine residential development sitting there empty and people don’t know what its current status is, and what plans are there for the future. There seems to be something of an information vacuum,” she said.“This is such a significant building in Janesboro and Rathbane that I really feel it is completely understandable for people to be interested in it. Locals are looking out at the development and don’t understand what is going to become of it. They also have concerns about anti-social behaviour there,” she said.Residents in the area say they feel let down by the lack of communication and consultation over the development.“We are nine years putting up with disruption from the start with the plans and the builder to now having no information on what is going on with the houses. It’s so frustrating to look out your front door every morning to look at a wasteland. Why can’t they be finished and given to families from the area?” asked one local resident.In response, a spokesperson for Limerick City Council stated that queries about Waller’s Well need to be directed to the Receiver. However, the local authority did say that it is actively looking at options in relation to the Waller’s Well site.

Facebook(CHATTANOOGA, Tenn.) — A man driving on a Mississippi road phoned local police and then typed a confessional on Facebook detailing the savage double murder of his mother and a close pal, according to police.Police say Casey James Lawhorn typed over a 1,000-word screed about how early Sunday morning he apparently was fed up with his mother and his friend and decided to kill them in his East Ridge, Tennessee, home.As of Sunday night, Lawhorn — who is wanted for killing his mother and his friend — is on the lam in Jasper County, Mississippi, according to the Sheriff’s Department there. A SWAT team surrounded his gold Taurus, but he was nowhere to be found, Tennessee authorities said.East Ridge Police Assistant Police Chief Stan Allen told ABC News the Facebook post to be authentic, saying Lawhorn “posted a pretty specific message on Facebook detailing the crime.”According to the Facebook post from Sunday evening, Lawhorn, who in the post claims he is “almost 24,” admitted to picking up a “stolen .22 LR rifle caliber” from his bedroom and about 1:30 a.m., walked up to his friend dozing on the living room floor and “shot him in the head once.”The Facebook post said the young man the young man “seemed to die instantly.”Then, the post suggests, he marched to his mother’s dark bedroom while she was sleeping. The post claimed that his mom was inebriated when he tried pulling the trigger.But the gun jammed, according to the post.The post stated that he left the room momentarily to fix the weapon, and then returned. That’s when he “rapidly got off two shots” in the dark.The blood-curdling screams tested Lawhorn, according to the post.“She started screaming the worst scream I’ve ever heard,” according to the post. “Movies really don’t do justice to how true terror sounds.”The gun jammed again, according to the post, and after fixing it a second time, Lawhorn then allegedly turned a light on and “shot at her twice more and it was over.”The post stated that Lawhorn later swiped heroin and cash from his dead friend’s pockets and wallet but spared his mother’s dog, Oscar.“I didn’t hurt our dog or cat, in case anyone was wondering about the animals.”Afterward, the post claims that Lawhorn was struggling with college and that he was hoping to commit suicide.“Surely any normal person would wish death on themselves after doing what I did, seeing what I saw, and hearing what I heard,” according to the post.Allen confirmed to ABC News that dispatchers received a phone call from Mississippi — approximately 40 miles from his home — earlier in the evening from a man they believe to be Lawhorn tipping them off on the double homicides.“The suspect called us and identified himself and talked to our dispatchers for some time,” Allen said, noting that Lawhorn directed cops to the location of the purported double murder scene.“He told them that he had committed the crime and that he was going to a location north of our city to find a secluded spot to kill himself,” said Allen.When officers appeared at the home, which is just south of Chattanooga, Allen said there was no answer.“They ended up forcing entry into the home,” he said.Once inside Allen said the cops found a woman, whom they identified as Lawhorn’s mother, Vi Lawhorn, and a young man whom they are not identifying. Both were dead from apparent gunshot wounds, he said.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
Oleksii Liskonih/iStockBy ERIN SCHUMAKER, ABC News(BOISE, Idaho) — A virtual board meeting for an Idaho health district was cut short by protesters Tuesday.“I just got a text from my neighbor that there are protesters at my house, so I’m going to step off for just a moment to call the police because my kids are there,” Diana Lachiondo, the board’s commissioner, said just after the meeting, which was livestreamed on YouTube, began.“I’ve also got protesters outside my house as well,” said Ted Epperly, another board member.The meeting continued until Lachiondo broke in again, this time visibly upset. “My 12-year-old son is home by himself right now, and there are protesters banging outside the door,” she said. “I’m going to go home and make sure he’s okay.”Dr. David Peterman stopped the coronavirus update he was giving and sighed. “Whether I’m a pediatrician or not, I’m a father. That’s just unbelievable,” he said.Less than 15 minutes later, the mayor and chief of police contacted Central District Health director Russ Duke and asked the group to end their meeting for safety reasons.“I asked Central District Health to adjourn their meeting in the interest of public safety,” Mayor Lauren McLean wrote on Twitter. “The temperature had risen to a point that wasn’t safe.”A statement released by the city of Boise on Tuesday said protesters were at least three different board members’ homes and had tried to force their way into the health district building. According to the city, investigators have identified some of the individuals who were involved and are “securing warrants for their arrest on charges of disturbing the peace in the neighborhood.”“No child should be frightened by a mob of protestors, no local official should fear violence for their public service,” McLean wrote.Tuesday’s protests are the latest in a series of threats against public health officials nationwide since the pandemic began. In addition to the death threats Dr. Anthony Fauci and his adult daughters have received, lesser known health officials across the country have been targeted and harassed, some to the point where they have resigned.As of Wednesday, Idaho had reported 113,905 infections and 1,074 deaths from the virus, according to the state health department.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
