The FTSE 100 might have come a long way from the market crash, but not all individual stocks have. I think some of the best UK shares to buy now are among this group, those that have missed the rally. These otherwise robust stocks are still selling at dirt-cheap levels. I’m talking about stocks that suffered a massive blow because of the lockdowns. Their prices had a bigger mountain to climb than others in any case. But doubts about the future have also held them back. At least until now.  Best UK shares to buy nowConsider the FTSE 100 hospitality company Whitbread (LSE: WTB), whose share price has inched up from rock-bottom, but is still half of what it was pre-crash. This may change, however. It sounded upbeat in the trading update released yesterday. 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…It reported that many of its hotels and restaurants are now open and it expects the majority to reopen during July. It also reported good demand in traditional regional tourist destinations. This is good news because the summer months bring in so much business for the industry. This bodes well for the future, even though recent months have been tough. Some challenges still exist as the recession drags hospitality down, but I have little doubt that the owner of Premier Inn can make it through. In fact, it has already acted to ensure this. It completed a £1bn rights issue in June to secure the business to “withstand a long period of low revenues”. Positive business developments, financial strength and a long history makes it one of the best UK shares for me to buy before it starts rallying. Looking ahead with optimismSimilarly, things are turning around for the better for FTSE 100 real estate developer, Barratt Developments (LSE: BDEV), whose share price has been quite muted in recent months. In its trading update earlier this week, it reported a strong order book.  According to CEO David Thomas, the company is beginning its new financial year with “cautious optimism”. To me, that sounds most positive coming from a company that has just weathered the lockdown and whose market could remain lukewarm because of Brexit uncertainties and the ensuing recession. I reckon this otherwise financially healthy company will see better times ahead. And sooner rather than later, I reckon that this stock will rally, making it the second of my best UK shares to buy right now. Big changes aheadFTSE 100 insurance biggie Aviva is another dirt-cheap stock, with a price-to-earnings (P/E) of only 4.5 times. Even though I’m not a big fan of financials right now, this did get my attention. Its past share price trend doesn’t suggest as much capital appreciation opportunity as WTB or BDEV. It is, however, even by its own standards, at subdued levels. A freshly announced change in leadership suggests some big restructuring might be under way in the near future. It remains to be seen what happens next, but at the current levels AV does look attractive making it the third of my best UK shares to buy right now.  See all posts by Manika Premsinghlast_img read more

An inside look at the Latino vote

first_imgprintThe race for the presidency is off and while a variety of Americans exercise their right to vote, the Latino population has the power to swing the election.While the millennial generation makes up the majority of voters this election, Latino voters make up 44 percent of the millennial generation.According to a Pew Research Center study, the number of Latinos eligible to vote has increased by roughly 3.2 million, or 80 percent, since 2012. The increase stemmed from U.S born Latinos that have come of voting age since the last presidential election.The same study found that 69 percent of Latinos said they were “absolutely certain” they would vote in the election.Latinos under 18-years-old have also raised their views on the election.Obed Tarango, a 17-year-old senior at Diamond Hill Jarvis High School, said he wished he was old enough to vote and called Donald Trump both selfish and racist.“I wouldn’t really like to vote for any of them but if I could, I would vote for Hillary Clinton,” Tarango said.While the poll station in Diamond Hills, Texas at the Diamond Hills Jarvis Library had a constant flow of Latino voters today, Latino voters are making an impact all around the country.Latino voters hold a strong percentage in swing states such as Arizona, Nevada, and Florida. However, more than half of all eligible Latino voters live in the non-battleground states of Texas, California, and New York.One Latino walks into the Diamond Hills Jarvis Library to vote.According to the Pew study, as of 2016 a majority of Latino voters, 54 percent, view the Democratic Party as having more concern for them than the Republican Party. However, the number of Latinos that feel this way has decreased since 2012.John Garcia, a Latino TCU student, said he voted for Gary Johnson because he sides with a lot of his views, but not all.Garcia said that Clinton raised too many question marks for her to receive his vote.According to the Pew study, support for Hillary Clinton comes more enthusiastically from the older generation of Latino voters. On the contrary, 64 percent of Millennial Latinos voting for Clinton are doing so because they are against Trump rather than for Clinton.Overall, the study found that 55 percent of Latinos support Clinton.Daniel Lopez, a Diamond Hills Latino said he voted for Clinton because she seemed like the best choice.When asked his thoughts on Trump, Lopez said “I don’t think he can lead the country like that.”While many Latino’s at Diamond Hills seemed to disapprove of Trump, not all were solidified in their opinions.“I don’t know it’s kinda confusing,” Albno Barboza, a Diamond Hills resident, said. “Mixed reviews, mixed arguments, mixed everything.”Only tonight’s polls will tell how the Latino vote affected the election.

“White Terror” forces pro-democracy website House News to shut down

first_img News Hong KongAsia – Pacific News Organisation May 26, 2021 Find out more The popular pro-democracy news website House News abruptly shut down without warning on 26 July. One of its founders, Tony Tsoi, said the decision was taken because of the political pressure and intimidation that has paralyzed the Hong Kong media in recent months. In order to bypass journalists, Hong Kong Chief Executive launches her own talk show on public television to go further RSF_en Follow the news on Hong Kong Help by sharing this information Tsoi compared the atmosphere to the “white terror” in Taiwan between 1949 and 1987, during which political dissidents were rounded up. The Chinese authorities have been cracking down on campaigners as demands for greater democracy have grown in Hong Kong. House News was launched on 28 July 2012 and quickly gained popularity, attracting 300,000 views daily.The site, which promoted democracy and criticized Chinese policies, struggled to find advertisers. However, it was not financial difficulties that led to its closure. In a statement posted on the site in place of its news content, Tsoi, a businessman and writer, said he was afraid of being arrested whenever he crossed the border into China. “Hong Kong has changed,” he wrote. “To act as a normal citizen, a normal media outlet and to do something right for society is becoming difficult, or even terrifying — not that you feel alienated, but fearful. The ongoing political struggle makes people very anxious — many democrats are tracked and smeared. Their past records have been dug up. A sense of White Terror lingers in society and I feel the pressure as well.”Benjamin Ismaïl, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Asia-Pacific desk, said: “We ask the Hong Kong authorities to carry out an investigation to establish who is behind the threats and pressure on Tony Tsoi. Any failure to respond will mean the authorities are complicit in the climate of fear that is spreading throughout the archipelago, and the self-censorship that this causes.” In recent months, the Chinese authorities have tightened their grip on Hong Kong civil society. The Information Office of the State Council published a white paper last month reminding the people of Hong Kong that love of the motherland was the main qualification for jobs in the government.A few days later the website Popvote, which hosted a simulated referendum allowing voters to choose between three options for how the chief executive should be elected, suffered large-scale cyber attacks, making it partly unavailable.The Apple Daily site, which supported this popular initiative, was blocked on 18 and 20 June, after a similar series of hacking attempts. Of Hong Kong’s population of about 6 million, 800,000 took part in the referendum, described as illegal by the official media. About 500,000 people took part in the 1 July pro-democracy rally, held annually since the 1997 handover to Chinese rule. On a recent visit, Reporters Without Borders noted the oppressive atmosphere in which news organizations have to operate. A growing number of news providers are resorting to self-censorship or succumbing to pressure from editorial management. Hong Kong ranks 61st of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders World Press Freedom Index. Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK): Patrick Li, Director of Broadcasting or political commissar?

Scientists discover the ‘most massive neutron star ever detected’

first_imgThe most massive neutron star ever is millisecond pulsar J0740+6620, weighing in at 2.14 solar masses.https://t.co/fGWjgC1kcjAnimation: Bill Saxton, NRAO/AUI/@NSF pic.twitter.com/2e8qVj67tw— NRAO (@TheNRAO) September 17, 2019“These city-sized objects are essentially ginormous atomic nuclei. They are so massive that their interiors take on weird properties. Finding the maximum mass that physics and nature will allow can teach us a great deal about this otherwise inaccessible realm in astrophysics,” Cromartie said in a statement announcing their findings.Just a sugar-cube sized piece of this neutron star would weigh 100 million tons on Earth, scientists said.Cromartie added to ABC News that the discovery of the mass of this star is a big leap forward in understanding these mysterious objects.“The main reason finding the most massive neutron star ever discovered is significant is because it helps us understand the physics deep inside their interiors,” Cromartie told ABC News. “Neutron stars are the second most massive things in the universe after black holes.”“For a long time we thought that neutron stars could only be around 1.4 times the mass of the sun,” she added, saying that a few discoveries over the years have challenged this, but the new study “is a pretty big leap forward in terms of discovering more and more massive neutron stars.”“I think the discovery is very compelling because it shows that we can use astrophysical observations as kind of a laboratory in space to do physics that we can’t do on earth,” she said of the research. “We can’t exactly make neutron stars here on earth so the only way we have access to this astrophysics is by observing these neutron stars.”“I think it’s a pretty darn cool tool to have access to,” she added.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved. FILE – 00one/iStock(GREEN BANK, W. Va.) — Astronomers have discovered the “most massive neutron star ever measured,” amassing to more than two times the mass of our sun, that they dub “almost too massive to exist,” according to a statement from researchers at the Green Bank Observatory.“A neutron star is what remains when a very massive star goes supernova and dies, it is an extremely dense dead stellar core,” Thankful Cromartie, 27, a graduate student at the University of Virginia and Grote Reber pre-doctoral fellow at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory, as well as lead author on the study published Monday in Nature Astronomy, explained to ABC News.Cromartie and her colleagues at the NANOGrav Physics Frontiers Centered measured the neutron star, dubbed J0740+6620, as 2.17 times the mass of our sun but packed into a sphere only 30 kilometers (approximately 18 miles) wide. This massive weight in the tiny sphere challenges the limits of how compact and dense an object can be without turning into a black hole.last_img read more

Eddy-driven exchange between the open ocean and a sub-ice shelf cavity

first_imgThe exchange between the open ocean and sub-ice shelf cavities is important to both water mass transformations and ice shelf melting. Here we use a high-resolution (500 m) numerical model to investigate to which degree eddies produced by frontal instability at the edge of a polynya are capable of transporting dense High Salinity Shelf Water (HSSW) underneath an ice shelf. The applied surface buoyancy flux and ice shelf geometry is based on Ronne Ice Shelf in the southern Weddell Sea, an area of intense wintertime sea ice production where a flow of HSSW into the cavity has been observed. Results show that eddies are able to enter the cavity at the southwestern corner of the polynya where an anticyclonic rim current intersects the ice shelf front. The size and time scale of simulated eddies are in agreement with observations close to the Ronne Ice Front. The properties and strength of the inflow are sensitive to the prescribed total ice production, flushing the ice shelf cavity at a rate of 0.2–0.4 × 106 m3 s−1 depending on polynya size and magnitude of surface buoyancy flux. Eddy-driven HSSW transport into the cavity is reduced by about 50% if the model grid resolution is decreased to 2-5 km and eddies are not properly resolved.last_img read more
