Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The coronavirus has negatively impacted a lot of industries. One of these has been the property sector. For those looking to move, it was impossible to have physical viewings for months. The government actually warned against moving during parts of the pandemic. For investors, property prices didn’t offer any better news. Nationwide reported prices falling the most in May since 2009, at a 1.7% drop. Naturally this took a toll on the revenues of any firm involved in the property space, including Rightmove (LSE: RMV) and its share price. So why buy now?A turning tideWe all know how quickly things can change, as seen in March. On the flip-side, it doesn’t take much for positive change to come into effect. The first sign of encouragement for Rightmove was the announcement on a stamp duty holiday. The Chancellor gave the green light a month ago for no stamp duty to be paid on the first £500k of a property price. This has encouraged buyers to come back to the market, given that it would save around £15k for a £500k property.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 second positive change that will help the Rightmove share price is the easing of restrictions from the coronavirus. How can you move house or view a new house if you are told to stay within your own home for safety? But with the UK registering fewer than 1,000 new cases a day since July 15, restrictions have been eased. Hence the housing market springing back into action.Boosting the Rightmove share priceRightmove is an online portal where estate agents list properties. It relies on internet traffic and agents advertising on the portal. Before the tide turned, the share price was falling as investors realised the business would see a slowdown. This was confirmed with its results for the first half of the year. Average revenue per advertiser fell 34%, and there was a similar move lower on overall revenue and profit.Those figures were through to the end of June,but I expect the next half to be a different story. Rightmove commented that it’s seeing a lot of pent-up demand. Its CEO said “it’s quite incredible that 65 of our record days have been since 13 May”.I’m not going to claim that the property market (and therefore the Rightmove share price) is going to be the best performing sector over the next year, but I do think it’ll be up there. As a starting point, a bounce-back in revenue for Rightmove should put the share price back close to where it was before the virus. This would return around 12% from current levels.From there, the share price can resume the growth stock performance we’ve seen over the past few years. In case anyone has forgotten, it has gained over 1,000% in the past 10 years. It was only the virus that put a brake on performance. So from my point of view, this is a great time to buy into the Rightmove share price and ride the wave back higher. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

For rugby fans, who had grown increasingly disillusioned with the constant bickering, they can now look forward to plenty more European drama, thankfully on the pitch.To read our initial article on the future of European rugby and plenty more besides – including exclusive interviews with Mike Brown, Jamie Roberts, Cian Healy and Jamie Heaslip – read the May edition of Rugby World! IRB chairman Bernard Lapasset said the new tournament would allow both players and fans to “look forward to a strong competition structure that promotes and celebrates the best of the European game”.The biggest potential sticking point had been broadcasting rights but Sky and BT Sport came to a compromise that games would be shared. Both broadcasters will therefore be screening 35 fixtures each, with both sides showing two quarter-finals, a semi-final each and both will show the final. BT Sport won the right to have their pick of the English fixtures in the ERCC with Sky having the Challenge Cup.Key man: The RFU’s Ian RitchieThe format of both competitions will be five pools of four, with the five Pool winners reaching the quarter-finals and joined by the next best three runners-up. Home advantage will go to the top-four ranked winners.Much like the current competition, the Pool phases will be played in three blocks of two weekends before the Six Nations and a final at the end of May.One man who can raise a toast to a successful outcome is RFU Chief Executive, Ian Ritchie whose quiet diplomacy behind the scenes and ability to broker a deal between Sky and BT Sport have proved key. “This is an excellent outcome for all concerned, most importantly the players and supporters who have made European rugby what it is today.” After nigh on two-years of an increasingly rancorous power-struggle between the clubs, Unions and broadcasters, the new make-up of European rugby has been agreed.With the Heads of Agreement now signed by the nine signatories – with the Italians reportedly the last to come on board – the 18-year-old Heineken Cup will be replaced by the European Rugby Champions Cup. The second-tier competition, replacing the Amlin Challenge Cup, will be the named the European Rugby Challenge Cup and a third-tier competition called the Qualifying Competition.The deal thrashed out and finalised in Heathrow on Thursday, guarantees European rugby for the next eight years, including a two-year notice period. The European Rugby Champions Cup will comprise twenty teams; six teams from the Top 14, six from the Aviva Premiership, and seven from the Pro12. The 20th and final place will be filled by the seventh placed teams in the Aviva or Top 14 after a play-off.Past experience: Bill BeaumontThe Rugby Challenge Cup will be played between the remaining 18 sides in the three domestic leagues with the final two places filled by two sides in the Qualifying Competition, made up of Italian sides and sides from emerging countries.The governing body will be called the European Professional Club Rugby (EPCR) and be formed of a four-man executive with representatives from the Aviva, Pro12 and the the Top 14 and be headed by an independent director-general. It will be run from Switzerland where they will replace the current organisers European Rugby Cup (ERC). ERC chief executive Derek McGrath has announced that he will relinquish his position in October 2014. The EPCR will be responsible for brokering sponsorship and commercial deals while the unions are expected to manage administrative aspects such as refereeing, anti-doping and discipline.Real winners: Rugby fansUnsurprisingly the announcement was roundly lauded by the game’s administrators. Bill Beaumont, chairman of English governing body the Rugby Football Union, said: “We are very pleased that the challenges off the pitch are concluded so we can enjoy the joys of the game on it, creating more unforgettable memories for players and fans alike.”Mark McCafferty, the Premiership Rugby chief executive, was equally effusive. “This is a historic day for European club rugby. These new club competitions will create top quality sporting drama for our supporters and commercial partners across Europe.” TAGS: Highlight LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS At long last, after an increasingly acrimonious battle for control of the European game by the rugby’s administrators, rugby can look forward to a bright future Winning away from the drama: Toulon won last year’s Heineken Cup. Next year it will be the ERCC

His grief and anger show clearly as Munique’s father addresses the crowd of friends, neighbors and activist supporters.Photo: Aaron LeafChula Vista, Calif. — Approximately 300 people gathered in the city of Chula Vista, seven miles from the Mexican border, on Oct. 1 to mourn the killing of Valeria Munique Tachiquin Alvarado by a plainclothes Border Patrol agent. “Munique,” as friends and family called her, died on Sept. 28 under a hail of bullets from the thus far unidentified agent.The vigil for Munique was held near the murder scene, where a memorial was erected. The event was organized by the American Friends Service Committee and lasted about two hours. Mourners lit candles and chanted, “What do we want? Justice! When do we want it? Now!” and “¡El pueblo unido, jamás será vencido!”Family members spoke to the crowd, thanking them for their support. Maria Puga, the widow of Anastacio Rojas, attended the vigil and spoke in support of the Tachiquin and Alvarado families. Forty-two-year-old Rojas was brutally beaten and tasered to death by Border Patrol agents at the San Ysidro, Calif., border crossing in 2010.U.S. Customs and Border Patrol officials claim an agent was serving a search warrant on an unidentified male when Munique intentionally ran him down with her car, striking the agent hard enough to cause him to flip onto the hood and windshield. The agent claims he was “dragged” several hundred yards on the hood before firing six to 10 bullets into the windshield.Eyewitnesses gave an entirely different account.“As the car was backing up, the officer was on the street walking towards the car and discharging [his weapon],” said eyewitness Prince Watson. Other witnesses say they observed the car movingly slowly in reverse away from the plainclothes agent. Witnesses also said he was not displaying his badge, nor did he identify himself as a Border Patrol agent.Gilbert Alvarado, the husband of the slain mother of five, demanded answers. “My wife got killed for no reason,” he said during an interview with local media. “Where is the evidence my wife threatened a trained officer? I want justice.”Munique’s father, Valentin Tachiquin, said the community support meant a great deal to him and his family. “It gives me power to continue on, seeing such a lovely outpouring of love for our family and for Munique.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
February 22, 2021 Find out more Bangladeshi reporter fatally shot by ruling party activists Reporters Without Borders expressed concern today at proposed changes to the 2001 Bangladesh Telecommunications Act that would tighten control over e-mail traffic and legalise invasion of privacy and undermine free expression. It would also permit evidence based on e-mail interception to be used in court. Help by sharing this information RSF_en Receive email alerts “Respect for confidentiality of personal information obtained from Internet service providers (ISPs) or through e-mail messages must be an unshakeable principal of any democratic society,” it said. “New information technology allows greater monitoring of personal messages and the Bangladesh government must respect the privacy of its citizens and their right to communicate freely.” The Bangladesh Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (BTRC) has reportedly drafted amendments to the 2001 law at the request of the intelligence agencies and the law ministry which have cited reasons of national security and the need to fight terrorism.The intelligence agencies want access to the subscribers’ database of ISPs and to use in court cases material gathered through currently-illegal interception of private e-mail. One academic told The Daily Star newspaper that such interception “could be used as a weapon to blackmail people.”The intelligence agencies also want to amend section 30 of the Telecommunications Act (concerning privacy) to read (addition in italics): “…to ensure protection of the privacy of telecommunications subject to the national security laws.” This kind of general clause would allow intelligence officials disturbingly greater scope to intervene.Some freedom of expression activists say they fear the amendments would turn the country into a “police state.” The changes also seem to contradict the 2001 Act’s main purpose of setting up an independent commission (the BTRC) to regulate telecommunications. The way now seems open to transfer the BTRC’s powers back to the telecommunications ministry. Akhteruzzaman Manju, president of the Internet Service Providers’ Association (ISPA), warned in The Daily Star that the Act could only be amended with the permission of the International Telecommunications Union and after debate in parliament.

We infer that the Trinity Peninsula Group of the Antarctic Peninsula was deposited in a fore-arc basin(s) of composite type located between the Gondwanian arc massif (consisting of plutonic and older gneissose basement rocks) and a subduction complex, now represented by “greenschists”, “blueschists” and albite-epidote-hornblende-bearing rocks of the pre-Jurassic metamorphic complex. The Trinity Peninsula Group has been re-examined in the type area and can be divided into the Hope Bay, View Point and Legoupil Formations. Sedimentary rocks of all formations are of turbidite facies; meta-pillow lavas are described for the first time from these rocks. Multiphase folding has been observed in all formations and regional metamorphism reached prehnite-pumpellyite facies. Microprobe analyses of relict pyroxenes in the pillow lavas indicate the parent magma was probably within-plate alkali basalt. Analyses of detrital garnets show that they are different in composition from metamorphic garnets in the subduction complex, indicating that the latter did not supply a significant amount of material to the fore-arc basin(s). A close similarity with the Torlesse terrane in New Zealand is noted and we conclude that a late Palaeozoic-early Mesozoic fore-arc basin environment can be traced almost continuously around the Pacific margin from South America to New Zealand.
FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailartisteer/iStockBy EMILY SHAPIRO, ABC News(NEW YORK) — The Big 12 Conference will move forward with fall sports this year, officials announced Wednesday.Athletes in high-contact sports including football will get three COVID-19 tests per week, officials said.Schools not in the Big 12 Conference must follow those testing rules in the week leading up to games against Big 12 schools, officials said.“We are comfortable in our institutions’ ability to provide a structured training environment, rigorous testing and surveillance, hospital quality sanitation and mitigation practices that optimize the health and safety of our student-athletes,” Commissioner Bob Bowlsby said in a statement. “We believe all of this combines to create an ideal learning and training situation during this time of COVID-19.”“Ultimately, our student-athletes have indicated their desire to compete in the sports they love this season and it is up to all of us to deliver a safe, medically sound, and structured academic and athletic environment for accomplishing that outcome,” Bowlsby said.Officials with the Pac-12 and Big Ten conferences said Tuesday they are postponing all sports including football.
