Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Jackpot? A FTSE 100 stock with a whopping 12.3% dividend yield. To top it off, shares in Evraz (LSE: EVR) are climbing. Currently selling around 381p, they’ve provided a 50% return over the last six months.But I’m not fooled by the high numbers, because things are not all that they seem with the Evraz share price.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 uncertain market for steel Admittedly, Evraz is one of the world’s biggest steel producers. The integrated nature of its business means it’s involved in all aspects of steel production from mining coal and iron ore to selling steel products. This enables it to deal with the cyclical nature of the steel industry more effectively than operating in only one part of it.However, Evraz is mainly reliant on demand for its steel in Russia, the rest of Eastern Europe and North America. In all three regions, demand for its products has dropped. Consequently, operating profits plunged by 38% in its 2019 results. And this was before the global pandemic-related economic shutdown pulled its share price further into the depths.Indeed, I suspect it’ll be a while before Evraz sees demand significantly improving again. Moreover, the bullish period around 2018 looks like an outlier, correlating with high steel and vanadium prices. Evraz share price fundamentalsIncredibly, the 12.3% forward dividend yield on offer is what remains after Evraz’s dividend cut in August following a poor first half-year performance. This was blamed on “restrictive“ government measures being imposed in many of its geographic markets, causing steel prices to drop. To help cash flow, it also reduced it payouts from four times per year to two.Although the dividend yield remains relatively high, the recent cut appears to reflect the current state of the business. Declining revenues have resulted in Evraz upping its levels of debt to see it through the recent downturn. Moreover, even with the cyclical nature of the steel industry, an 80% gross gearing ratio is substantial. It illustrates the large amount of debt on the balance sheet as a percentage of shareholder funds. If the downturn continues, this may increase even more.However, the business coverts profits to cash efficiently. But it appears that Evraz uses debt, in addition to the hard cash generated, to fund its whopping dividend. Moreover, I think the business is used as a cash-cow for its shareholders. In the short term, this could benefit an investor, but it’s not a long-term wealth-building strategy for either the business or a shareholder.In summary To look at its last financial year in isolation, Evraz appears to be doing quite well. However, it’s the general trend of the business over the last few years that concerns me. Despite the cyclical nature of steel production, as I said, the most recent peaks appear to be outliers.In addition, its debt pile is a concern and I’m not convinced it will manage to hold its showboating dividend at current levels. If demand for its products doesn’t improve, limited revenues mean the debt will have to be serviced by shareholders. Consequently, I’m looking out for less risky stocks than Evraz to add to my portfolio. Enter Your Email Address See all posts by Rachael FitzGerald-Finch

Alumna joins ‘Survivor’ reality show in quest for a million dollars Linkedin Linkedin TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history printChancellor Victor Boschini said he would “absolutely” not release a proactive statement in support of immigrant students and students who are Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients.A group of students, alumni, faculty and community members requested the statement from Boschini following a “Clean DREAM Act now” rally Wednesday afternoon.Boschini told the group he would not make a statement because the undocumented and immigrant students he talked to do not want him to. He said those students appreciated him not drawing attention to them and that they would tell people that Boschini is making them feel safe.“I stand on my record,” Boschini told the group.In an interview afterward, he said: “They’re trying to paint me like I don’t care about these kids, but I do. Talk to anybody who works with me. I just think the way I accomplish it is different from the way they want it accomplished. Of course, I think my way’s right and they think their way’s right. It’s hard.”The activists wanted Boschini to answer four questions, according to the letter they delivered to his office:What concrete proposals will TCU enact to protect undocumented members of our community from deportation?Will TCU use its extensive lobbying power to fight for the rights of undocumented students and community members, by supporting a clean DREAM Act?How can TCU claim to protect undocumented immigrants when Charlie Geren, an anti-immigrant legislator, sits on our Board of Trustees?Will TCU leaders urge U.S. Representative Kay Granger to meet with immigrant rights activists like United Fort Worth? Previous articleLive coverage: SGA weekly meetingNext articleCenter for International Studies hosts 2011 Nobel Peace Prize Winner Elizabeth Campbell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR First-year student Marilyn Downing said she attended the protest looking to let TCU students who are DACA recipients know they aren’t alone, and to pass on her message to D.C. legislators.“By not passing a clean DREAM act, you’re separating families and friends,” Downing said. “If you were really a supporter of human rights you would support a clean DREAM act.”Protestors were also given a phone number to call Congress in order to register their support for a clean Dream Act and a clipboard was passed around to collect signatures on the letters that were taken to Boschni and Rep. Kay Granger.There was a brief interruption when a couple of male students walked by shouting, “Build the Wall!” however organizers responded by shouting, “Protect DACA, Trump is caca” and after a few rounds of that, the planned speeches continued.Guardiola originally organized the protest to pressure campus and community leaders to support the clean Dream Act, a bill that would grant a pathway to citizenship for 2.1 million Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients without any border security stipulations.Legislative Background:This protest comes as the Senate is having a rare open floor debate on immigration. Following last month’s government shutdown, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell promised a debate for a DACA solution before the March 5 deadline. Senators have been debating policy all week in a rather chaotic attempt to get one to 60 votes.Bills include a bill based on President Donald Trump’s demands,that focuses on creating a path to citizenship for Dreamers, securing the border, eliminating the diversity visa lottery and limiting family-based immigration; a bill from Republicans that would penalize those cities which don’t follow federal immigration policy, also known as sanctuary cities; and a Democrat-backed bill that provides a path to citizenship for DREAMers without increasing immigration enforcement funding or changing policy on future immigration (also known as the clean DREAM act, which today’s protesters were supporting).However, there are also some bipartisan bills up for debate. Senators Lindsey Graham and Dick Durbin are still pushing their bill which would provide a legal status for those on DACA, a few billion in funding for a border wall and modify current legal immigration policy including replacing the visa lottery and legalizing parents of DACA recipients while making them ineligible for citizenship.Senators John McCain and Chris Coons also proposed a bill. This one offers DACA recipients a path to citizenship while also authorizing a study on the needs of border enforcement and increasing resources for immigration courts.McConnell has said the first bill to reach 60 votes wins– it will then need to be reconciled with a House version before it can be sent to the president for his signature; however, Trump aides have told reporters the president won’t sign anything that doesn’t address his desired framework which could influence some congress members votes.This debate started months ago when Trump announced in September he was ending the DACA program. The move then was also met with protests on TCU’s campus when Guardiola organized a “Defend DACA” rally. DACA was first implemented in 2012 by then-president Barack Obama through executive action. The program offered immigrants who meet certain eligibility requirements, known as DREAMERS, to receive a renewable two-year deferral for deportation consideration, as well as work permits.To be eligible, individuals need to meet each of the following requirements:Must have been under the age of 31 as of June 15, 2012Must have been brought to the U.S. Before age 16 and residing here continuously sinceMust have completed or be currently enrolled in school or be a member of the Coast Guard or the armed forcesMust have never been convicted of a felony or significant misdemeanor.Shane Battis and Paris Jones contributed to this report.

She said that Boschini needed to be proactive, not reactive on current legislation and to reassure DACA and immigrant students. “So many of us are terrified,” Guardiola said. “We need to let them know as TCU members we are here to support them.”The conversation grew heated at one point as the two sides clashed over their different plans for handling the issue with the protestors repeatedly asking Boschini to make a “diplomatic message” on behalf of the immigrant students. Boschini repeatedly refused, however, and told the student representatives in the meeting that they should continue their activism and that they can spread a message of support to those students who are concerned.“You’re all trying to bully me into doing what you want,” Boschini said. “You have more reach than I have and more power than I have. There are 10,000 of you and only one of me.”Organizer and Brite Divinity Student John Noble, however, said that he didn’t agree and thought that a message from Boschini would carry more weight.Both parties were able to agree on the importance of promoting the resources available on campus for those who are concerned.“I would say any student who feels threatened by this, go to the counseling center immediately and get help,” Boschini said. “There’s tons of places on campus you can get resources we could help you.”Noble said he was thankful to Boschini for taking the time to meet with them but that he was “disappointed” by Boschini’s refusal to release a statement.“We want this conversation to continue,” Noble said. “We need people at TCU to realize that, whether they’re administrators, students, whether they’re faculty; this is a crisis moment for immigrants, and has been for a long time in this country. Really strong action is necessary.”The conversation followed a march and rally that gathered together about three dozen people. The march started at the Founder’s statue, went down past Moudy and then back to end on the steps of Sadler. Throughout the march protestors shouted chants such as: “Trump, Abbott, Granger: they put immigrants in danger!” “Si se puede!” and “Ho, ho, hey, hey, immigrants are here to stay!”Following the march, people gave speeches on the steps of Sadler to share their stories of immigrants they know and to voice their support for the immigrant community at TCU.Noble said he was drawn to the rally to show the undocumented community they have support.“No human being is illegal,” Noble said.

The exact circumstances of the physical attack on Christian Lantenois of the local newspaper L’Union-L’Ardenais have not yet been determined but the police are treating it as a murder attempt.Lantenois and a woman reporter with the same newspaper decided to go to this residential neighbourhood with an estimated 25,000 inhabitants after reports of “acute tension” in the area, which has a high crime rate, according to the police.The woman reporter went in an unmarked car but Lantenois drove there in a car bearing the newspaper’s name. It is not known how many people attacked him. The newspaper simply reported that he was found badly injured beside his car. He was rushed to a hospital where his condition on Sunday 28 February is described as stable but extremely worrying.“The violence unleashed against Christian Lantenois precisely because he was a journalist must not go unpunished, because it violates our republican principles and the foundations of our democratic society,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “We express our full support for his family and friends and all of his colleagues and we undertake, with them, to ensure that the perpetrators of this despicable and appalling attack are quickly identified and duly prosecuted.”In a statement L’Union-L’Ardenais said: “This attack was not a chance occurrence. The newspaper’s car was identified and the camera was smashed. This journalist was clearly targeted. Nothing and no one can limit our determination to inform the public, nor our freedom to act and to report the news. Not covering this story would have meant denying that violence is a reality for this neighbourhood’s 25,000 residents.”Lantenois has been covering football and other sports as well as general news for the newspaper for many years.France is ranked 34th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index.

As a result of the deal, the head of the journalists’ union, Jong-Myun Roh, was released today from detention and the journalists ended a 10-day strike. At the same time, YTN chairman Gu Bon-hong, a close associate of President Lee Myung-bak, has been confirmed in his post.Reporters Without Borders calls on all the parties to begin a constructive dialogue aimed at adopting mechanisms that provide long-term protection for the editorial independence of YTN’s journalists. “It is also important to reinstate the journalists who were fired for taking parting in protests in defence of the station’s editorial freedom, as long as they did participate in any acts of violence,” the press freedom organisation added.Under the agreement signed yesterday by the leadership of the journalists’ union, the management is supposed to withdraw the complaints it brought against journalists while the union is supposed to withdraw its own complaints. This has already led to the release of the head of the union, Roh, who was arrested along with three other journalists on 22 March.The head of the Reporters Without Borders Asia-Pacific desk met Roh on 23 March, while he was held in a Seoul police station. The press freedom organisation issued a call at the time for an agreement that would protect the TV station’s editorial independence.Reporters Without Borders also urges the former agriculture minister and his deputy to follow the example of the YTN accord and to withdraw their complaint against the journalists responsible for the investigative programme PD Note on public TV station MBC, which has also been posing a threat to press freedom in South Korea.
LimerickNewsEuropeana Sport – Ireland’s Stories: Irish Surfing Is BornBy Meghann Scully – June 23, 2020 102 IN 1966 the Surf Club Of Ireland was formed, a club that later became Irish Surfing, the National Governing Body of Surfing today.The club was the result of a chain of events initiated by Bray man, Kevin Cavey. Kevin discovered surfing in 1962, when he saw a picture of a Hawaiian surfer in a Reader’s Digest. This picture was his inspiration for a life-long passion for surfing.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up For the next few years, Kevin experimented with making his own boards, connecting with other surfers and forming Ireland’s first Surf Club.In 1966, Kevin decided it was time to tell Ireland that surfing had arrived. He took a stand at the Boat Show, titled Bray Ireland Surf Club, and was inundatedwith interest.Following the success of the Boat Show, Kevin, who had just received delivery of his first custom fibreglass surfboard, his brother Colm, Tom Casey and Patrick Kinsella set off on their first great Surfari in a Vauxhall Victor 101 station wagon with a stack of surfboards on the roof. Their great surfari marked the bringing of surfing to the West.Their first stop was Strandhill, Co Sligo followed by Rossnowlagh, Co Donegal and then North to the Causeway Coast.On returning home from the Surfari, the Surf Club Of Ireland was formed, a club representing all Ireland. By the late 1960s surfing was expanding rapidly and regional clubs began to emerge including North Coast Surf Club, West Coast Surf Club, South Coast Surf Club, Rossnowlagh Surf Club and Fastnet Surf Club.At this point, the Surf Club Of Ireland became the Irish Surfing Association, the National Governing Body linking the newly emerged clubs.If you would like to contribute your memory you can go to the Europeana Sport Contribution Form to upload your stories and memorabilia online.
