first_img Kirsteen Mackay | Wednesday, 18th March, 2020 | More on: NXT TSCO Fast fashionNext is another British retailer that has defied the odds in recent years and outperformed its contemporaries on the high street. It’s also another FTSE 100 share I’d avoid selling.The Tesco dividend yield is 2.6% and the Next yield is 4%. This return on investment eases the stress for income investors during periods of volatility. I also don’t think either of these dividends is at risk of a cut.The Next share price is down 43% year-to-date, which is undeniably horrifying, but compared to its peers isn’t so bad.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. As the stock market crash rages on, I don’t think it’s a good time to sell your stocks. Although this financial crash is likely to continue for some time, it will invariably have ups and downs. If you sell-out during a down day, you’ll more than likely come to regret it when the stock market finally rebounds.Intelligent investingI don’t advocate selling shares during a stock market crash because emotion isn’t a clear basis for decision-making. This is particularly important when considering quality companies.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…If you’re following a long-term stock-buying process such as that encouraged by Warren Buffett and his mentor Benjamin Graham, then you should buy and hold for many years.This means buying shares in top quality companies that can stand the test of time without being burdened by debt.Avoiding danger in a stock market crashAlthough the global stock market seems a scary and dangerous place, there are still bargains to be had. I also think it’s worth sitting tight and holding on to any shares you own in quality companies.Two FTSE 100 stocks I’d hold for the long-term are Tesco (LSE:TSCO) and Next (LSE:NXT).The Tesco share price outperformed the FTSE 100 in 2019 and I think this trend is set to continue in 2020. It hasn’t fared as badly as most FTSE 100 stocks in the current market crash. Today it’s down 13% year-to-date.Tesco hasn’t always been a good share to own, but it’s become more attractive in recent years. Acquiring wholesaler Booker gave it access to hundreds of independent retailers and bigger margins.Its massive database of consumer shopping habits gleaned from years of Clubcard metrics has given it an edge in providing what the customer wants. A recent consumer shift to plant-based diets, veganism and healthier food options made Tesco’s data status ever more apparent. The supermarket giant took full advantage of the shift with new product lines and careful marketing.The Tesco share price’s defensiveness has further shone brightly in the past fortnight, as consumers resort to panic-buying sprees for food and household essentials.center_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Laura Ashley has called in the administrators and Debenhams is requesting a five-month rent-paying holiday.The important thing to remember is that Next is a good quality company with a healthy balance sheet and much to offer consumers going forward. Although its share price may continue to suffer in the interim, eventually it should recover and thrive again.Undoubtedly there will be retail casualties along the way, but the stronger companies will weather the storm and come out the other side. With Warren Buffett’s wisdom as a guide, I think shareholders of Tesco and Next, should continue to hold. Don’t panic-sell in the stock market crash!

The aviation industry has had quite a year. Covid-10-related travel restrictions have battered airlines and plane makers.One of the FTSE 100‘s biggest losers over the last 12 months is British Airways owner IAG (LSE:IAG). FTSE 250-listed easyJet has also seen its share price plummet.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…An unwelcome addition to that list is British favourite Rolls-Royce Holdings (LSE:RR.). The Rolls-Royce share price has been hurt badly over the last year. It is now down 61% compared to last February.The company announced it is closing its jet engine factories for two weeks this summer to save cash. This will affect 19,000 staff members in its civil aerospace branch.How has Rolls-Royce negotiated the pandemic?Rolls-Royce’s balance sheet has been badly affected by the crisis as its airline customers have grounded planes. The company’s profits are closely linked to how many hours their engines are in flight. With engine flying hours down 42% in 2020, it has had to make cost savings of more than £1bn.Despite all the doom and gloom, some analysts see the current Rolls-Royce share price of 91p as extremely attractive. In a broker note on Thursday, analysts at Deutsche Bank turned bullish on the stock. The German bank said it had seen early signs of recovery in domestic markets and that it expects vaccine rollouts to spark a recovery in airline travel. Forecasts, of course, can change based on future developments and can’t be relied on.My own outlook isn’t so enthusiastic outlook for the short term, but I do believe airline travel will return to a version of normality in the long term. Is the grass greener on the other side?Some other Fool commentators have suggested the shares could rise based on Rolls-Royce’s early involvement in a move towards electric jet engines. I think it’s still too early to say where that will go just yet — the technology is only at the stage of flying 200 miles on a single charge.Energy companies will be coming under increasing pressure from governments in coming years to adopt greener energy models. The fact that Rolls-Royce is already investing in electric vehicles is positive, and the growth potential could be massive in this area.Rolls-Royce has traditionally been considered a ‘quality’ stock, but it wouldn’t be the first time such a traditional name flopped in the stock market.The group is still cautious about its outlook. In its most recent trading update, it said: “Enhanced restrictions are delaying the recovery of long-haul travel over the coming months compared to our prior expectations, placing further financial pressure on our customers and the wider aviation industry, all of which are impacting our own cash flows in 2021”.That doesn’t inspire me with the confidence to add Rolls-Royce shares to my portfolio right now. While cash flow has improved somewhat, I still see the price as too unstable for me. I will be keeping a close eye on the stock as 2021 progresses though.

first_img Hey, English Rugby. I’ve an idea. See Sam Burgess there? The one who came from League amid unbearably enormous hype and was fast-tracked into the national set-up, where the coaches had totally different ideas for his future to those at his club. Yeah, him. The one who then worked hard and trained the house down to be handed an unlikely place in a World Cup squad at the expense of more experienced candidates and who then, in an embarrassingly subpar collective performance, played exactly how anyone with the slightest bit of foresight would have expected: occasionally excellent, occasionally shown up, as the team fell at the first hurdle. Yep, let’s blame him.The excellent #BlameBurgess twitter campaign is, of course, delivered with tongue placed firmly in cheek. But it comes from solid ground; at some stage or another, Burgess has been pilloried for just about everything, including – remarkably, in a sport so prone to highhorse-ism and desperate to show off quite how sporting it is while deriding less “gentlemanly” games – talking to the Australians as the players shook hands last week. String the man up.A couple of days after bookies stopped taking bets on a League return, Mike Ford insisted Burgess would stay in Union. But you couldn’t blame Burgess for wanting to go back. Indeed, you couldn’t blame him for wondering why he ever took on the challenge in the first place. There was nothing about the move that he needed, after all. Much remains for him in League.Grand plans: Mike Ford says Burgess still has ambitions in UnionBurgess wanted simply to succeed in a second code, and the nascent signs are that he has the hunger – the one thing we knew he had in spades – to continue on that journey. But what have the main features of his first year in the job been? There have been hits and carries, and probably only as many as really could have been expected, and plenty of mistakes too.But as he’s looked to learn the code, he’s been over-promoted, found himself politicised – right down to Stuart Lancaster pettily dropping him from the 23 to face Uruguay – and had his attempts to learn picked apart ruthlessly by pundits at home and abroad. His inexperience has been exposed occasionally, but not nearly as often as his detractors claim. In the firing line: Sam Burgess started against Wales in the World Cup His selection was not based on rugby nous but was a punt and an adventure, as he and Henry Slade caught Luther Burrell and Billy Twelvetrees napping. It hasn’t quite worked, but it shows what shaky ground Lancaster and co are stood on that it is arguably not the worst choice in the squad, and certainly not the worst for the eventual XVs. Burgess, who was far from England’s weakest player at the tournament, did not select himself. Blame him, and ask yourself this: was he really key to England’s disastrous campaign?There are those, it seems, who were desperate for him to fail from the start. Perhaps they believed he simply he did not have what it takes to succeed. Or maybe it was his sheer ambition, and belief he could instantly play at the World Cup. Or the fast-tracking, the big contract, the media circus or even a disdain for Rugby League and the idea of a big, bruising, bulldozing forward enjoying a successful conversion (there wasn’t much precedent for Burgess, remember). Who knows.Welcome to the NFL: ex-League star Jarryd Hayne has been celebrated in San FranciscoAll fans, press and ex-players will do by pinning too much blame on Burgess is drive him away, and that whichever way you square it, is a monumental folly. A year is no time in sport, and it is even less time to learn a sport. In fact, in the positions he has played, it’s quite staggering that he is as good as he already is. Burgess is box-office, a winner and a class act, and union will only be weaker if he is lost. Rugby is making itself appear even more insular and elitist (I see Jarryd Hayne being encouraged, not vilified, by NFL fans, for instance) and will only further ruffle feathers in the League community. There’s really no need. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img The truth is that as much as most people wanted this to work, and as impressive as the strides he has already made are, Burgess was not ready for this World Cup. Now, though, he needs more time with Bath, more time on basics, an actual position, not petty club and country squabbling and maybe we could even afford him a bit of space, too. He’s 26 years old and 15 starts into his Union career. He has shown enough at the World Cup alone to reinforce the view that, in time, he can be a top international. Let him go now and it’s a complete and utter waste.For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here. Let’s give the Bath back-row some time, says Will Macphersonlast_img read more

first_imgU.S. protests: ‘We are ALL Michael Brown!’Vigils and demonstrations involving thousands took place the evening of Thursday, Aug. 14, in at least 90 cities across the United States to protest the police killing of Michael Brown, 18, in Ferguson, Mo. Organized quickly on social media, the somber and angry gatherings included a moment of silence for Brown at 7:20 p.m. Eastern time. Other demonstrations against the racist killing and in solidarity with the ongoing rebellion of the African-American community in Ferguson have taken place before and since.Messages like “Black lives matter” and “Hands up, don’t shoot” have been seen in many photos posted on social media. Justice has also been demanded for others whose lives have been snuffed out at the hands of racist cops, like Eric Garner of Staten Island, N.Y.; John Crawford of Beavercreek, Ohio; and Ezell Ford of Los Angeles, along with dozens of others across the U.S. Below is a sampling of some of the protests.Some 400 people gathered in Durham, N.C., in front of the Old Durham Courthouse Aug. 14 to protest the lack of justice and systematic disenfranchisement of oppressed people. The assembly in Durham was intentionally led by militant Black youth. In addition to police brutality, racial profiling and state-sponsored violence, organizers also stressed the importance of connecting local and international struggles, particularly what’s happening in Gaza.A formal remembrance of the victims of police terrorism was conducted with an official libation ceremony, accompanied by revolutionary poetry and traditional African drums. From this assembly, a new organization was formed called “Black Everything” to ensure the continued pursuit of justice, particularly among Black youth. There was also a call for Black pride and for dismantling the white-supremacist power structure. Art and culture were highlighted as critical forms of expression and communication among oppressed communities.A crowd of several hundred gathered Aug. 14 at the Old Courthouse Square in Decatur, Ga., a suburb of Atlanta. Dozens of people spoke, some recounting their own close calls with police. Although predominantly Black and young, the gathering was multinational and multigenerational, including families with young children and older folks, all united in solidarity with the need to end police violence. Candles were lit at dusk. At the end, a number of people marched in the streets of downtown Decatur.In Orlando, Fla., a multinational crowd of 100 gathered at a park. “No justice, no peace. We stand with Ferguson” read one woman’s sign. Orlando is about 15 miles from Sanford where young Trayvon Martin was gunned down by racist wannabe cop George Zimmerman in 2012.In Miami, demonstrators outside the federal building included members of the Dream Defenders, who protested Florida’s “stand your ground” law by occupying the state Capitol last year. The crowd demanded justice for Brown as well as for Israel Hernandez, a 17-year-old graffiti artist who died from a cop’s stun gun in Miami Beach a year ago. (miamiherald.com, Aug. 15)Four demonstrations supporting the African-American community’s outrage in Ferguson were held Aug. 16 in Houston. Students from the historically Black Texas Southern University marched from their school to MacGregor Park’s recently inaugurated statue of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., where they rallied. The National Black United Front held a rally in Houston’s historic Fifth Ward. Another protest was held at the Houston Police Department’s downtown headquarters, while another was held on the corner of Houston’s busiest intersection, a high-traffic area in a busy shopping district.East Coast rallies against racismBetween 5,000 to 10,000 people rallied in Union Square, New York City, Aug. 14 with many then marching to Times Square.  The New York Police Department arrested at least a dozen people, including Black bystanders and Occupy Wall Street activists.  Other protests took place in Harlem and Brooklyn.Four major rallies and marches took place in Boston. Over 1,000 people in front of the State House participated Aug. 14 in the national day of silence and vigils for Michael Brown. The next night, some 60 people gathered in Roxbury for a protest organized by rap music producer M.C. Spice and the Nation of Islam. Close to 1,000 people marched on Boston police headquarters in Roxbury Aug. 16. They condemned the killing of Brown as well as murders at the hands of Boston police of African Americans like Burrell “Bo” Ramsey-White, who was shot and killed in 2012.Three actions took place in Baltimore Aug. 14, including a multinational, militant action of 200 people, mostly youth, who marched past the downtown police headquarters. Representatives of the revolutionary youth group FIST — Fight Imperialism, Stand Together — led chants and helped to direct the march. Workers World newspapers were distributed. All three rallies merged at the end, with close to 500 participants. The state had blocked off city hall from protesters, seemingly afraid of a repeat of the 10,000-strong demonstration in support of Trayvon Martin in 2012, which effectively shut down the Inner Harbor and city hall.Around 1,000 people gathered at Love Park in Philadelphia Aug. 14 to demonstrate solidarity with Michael Brown and all victims of racist police violence. The large multinational crowd stood together and read dozens of names of Black youth and adults who have been killed by police recently, followed by a minute of silence. Afterwards, demonstrators spontaneously marched through pouring rain toward the Philadelphia Art Museum, while others gathered in the local subway station and continued marching and chanting. The demonstration ended with a speakout, followed by renewed calls to have weekly actions until Brown and all other victims of police terror get justice.In Syracuse, N.Y., community members, high school and college students gathered Aug. 14 in a cool drizzle in Clinton Square to protest Michael Brown’s death and demand an end to police brutality. Several participants in the multinational crowd said they knew at least one young person who had been injured by local police. People gathered at the city hall in nearby Kingston and in front of the Dutchess County Jail in Poughkeepsie to honor the memories of those killed by police. (Mid-Hudson News Network, Aug. 15)From Midwest to West CoastIn downtown Chicago, hundreds gathered at Daley Plaza, where chants of “No justice, no peace, no racist police!” were heard. Some 40 people gathered outside the federal courthouse in Reno, Nev., while dozens gathered in Seattle, holding up signs that read “Unite against racism” and “Solidarity with Ferguson.”Dozens of community members from across Milwaukee and beyond took part in an Aug. 14 vigil in Dineen Park. On Aug. 17 dozens again protested the murder of Michael Brown and numerous Black and Brown community members gunned down by Milwaukee police. Protesters took the streets and briefly shut down a freeway off ramp to demand justice for victims of police terror.In downtown St. Louis, not far from Ferguson, several hundred people, reportedly half Black and half white, gathered in a small park near the Gateway Arch to honor Brown’s memory. Attending was Brown’s mother, Lesley McSpadden, who waved to the crowd as she wiped away tears, drawing applause. (Associated Press, Aug. 15)In Los Angeles, the family and friends of Ezell Ford organized a protest of more than 500 people Aug. 17 with a march beginning at the Los Angeles Police Department’s downtown headquarters. Ford was a 25-year-old Black man killed by police in South Central L.A. Aug. 11 while lying on the ground unarmed. The family of Omar Abrego, a 37-year-old father of three who was pulled over for an alleged traffic violation on Aug. 2,  then beaten to death by police just four blocks from where Ford was shot, also marched and demanded charges be filed immediately against the killer cops, who are on paid leave.The protest and signs expressed solidarity with the family of Michael Brown and speakers linked all three killings with the epidemic of police murder against Black and Brown peoples, especially youth. Signs from the Peoples Power Assemblies highlighting the many racist murders by police and from the International Action Center linking the U.S.-sponsored Israeli war on Gaza with the killing of Michael Brown were well received. Since Aug. 14, there have been daily anti-police brutality protests in South Central and/or downtown Los Angeles.In Oakland, Calif., thousands who came out Aug. 16 to stop the docking of a ship from apartheid Israel encountered a line of cops standing in formation when they reached the port entrance. Protesters erupted with chants of “Hands up, don’t shoot!” echoing the chants responding to police violence directed against the rebellion in Ferguson.Several demonstrators made statements linking recent acts of police brutality with the U.S.-backed destruction in Gaza. “On Twitter, we’ve seen people in Gaza tweet to protesters in Ferguson how to cope with teargas,” said Mohamed Shehk, who helped organize the ship blockade. “They’re saying things like, ‘As Palestinians, we know what it’s like to be targeted and killed for being of the wrong ethnicity.’” (theguardian.com, Aug. 17)Contributing to this report were Steven Ceci, Lamont Lilly, Dianne Mathiowetz, John Parker, Andre Powell, Minnie Bruce Pratt, Gloria Rubac, Gerry Scoppetuolo and Scott Williams.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

This shortage affects the Trauma Center and the hospital’s ability to help those in need.”Huston said the hospital is now in dire need for blood donations of all types because of its “very low” blood inventory.“If you are currently eligible to donate blood, please go to the Blood Donor Center today! No appointment needed. Please do not hesitate to encourage your family and friends to support us as well,” Huston said.The Huntington Hospital Blood Donor Center is located at 711 S. Fairmont Avenue in Pasadena. It is open from 9:30 a.m. To 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and from 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Fridays.Walk-in blood donors are welcome. For questions, please call the Blood Donor Center at (626) 397-5422.Parking tickets will be validated. All donors will also receive a Baskin Robbins gift certificate for a free pint of ice cream, the hospital said.“Your act of kindness makes an enormous difference – every donation can save up to two lives,” Huston added.Huntington Hospital which began as a small community hospital built by a group of prominent local citizens who formed a Pasadena Hospital Association around 1892.A temporary hospital with 16 beds opened in 1899 at the northwest corner of Raymond Avenue and Green Street, and in 1902, the 26-bed Pasadena Hospital opened on the site where Huntington Hospital now stands.For more information, visit www.huntingtonhospital.org/giveblood.

first_imgFacebook THE fact that the McCarthy Report did not target the Limerick regeneration programme for a cutback in its Snip Nua hit list, is regarded as a good sign in terms of guaranteed funding for continuation of the project, according to Brendan Kenny, chief executive of the city’s Regeneration Agencies.With some 400 houses already demolished on the housing estates included in the programme, Mr Kenny,Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up responding to concern voiced by northside councillor, Maurice Quinlivan, that people are anxious and nervous until they see new houses being built, said that demolition will continue until the end of this year.“We hope to get building next year, assuming that the money will be there to do so. But as a job, it has to happen and we wouldn’t be any nearer building even if the economic downturn hadn’t come along.“Meantime, we’ve a lot of social issues that we must get stuck into – planning and design, but we’re here for the long haul and there’s a lot going on that is not visible”.Speaking to this newspaper, Mr Kenny said that almost 300 houses on the northside and the southside have been locked up.“Some of these have been purchased and can’t be demolished but we hope that by the end of the year, there will be some action on boarded up houses. There’s money set aside for road works and at present additional CCTV cameras are being erected in St Mary’s Park etc., and mini pitches installed in all four areas by the end of the year.“President Mary McAleese will be coming down here in October – we hope to have things done by then. There are lots of families that must be given a reasonable quality of life while the regeneration work goes on”.Cllr Quinlivan said he will be seeking a meeting with Mr Kenny“People on t he ground are very nervous and they will remain so until they see building commence”.

first_imgNewsSummer BBQ tips with beerBy admin – May 20, 2010 557 Facebook Previous articleThe Preserving BookNext articleFun theme park returns to Limerick admin A THRILLER in the chiller and on the griller, beer’s role at a BBQ is a brilliantly broad one. Not content with being a spectacularly flexible and flavoursome friend to flame-licked food, it’s also an essential and ingenious ingredient that no serious tong-wielding, modern day outdoor cooking king or queen can do without.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up With more than 50 classic styles and a cornucopia of tastes and aromas, beer mingles effortlessly with pretty much anything that’s flipped off the grill. Hops give it the bitterness to slice through rich textures, malt the sweetness to parry charred and caramelised flavours while the bubbles cleanse the palate clean.Surprise your friends next time they come to dinnerFor a really magic marinade, mix in some beer. Maltier, darker beers like stout, porter and amber ales tend to shine in stronger, spicier marinades while more subtle and simple marinades, with just a sprinkle of seasoning, work well with more delicate drops – be they wheat beers, light pilsners or hoppy summer ales. Be wary of beer’s bitterness, it can overpower if overused. Less is more in a beer marinade.Summer Barbeque TipsIf using charcoal make sure that the coals have begun to turn ash-grey with a ‘ruddy’ glow. Do not attempt to cook over ‘flaming coals’ or if the heat has begun to dissipate and the coals have lost their ‘ruddy’ tinge!Ensure that there are three key grill heat areas – high, medium and warming. This can be achieved by building a greater depth of coals and heat at one end and less depth at the other.If using charcoal you can add to the traditional smoky flavour by adding wet hard-wood chips or vine clippings to the coals.Another great grill tip is to ‘sear on high and grill on low’ Simply ‘sear’ food quickly on both sides on a high heat to retain flavour and juices, then either grill on medium or low heat according to the food being grilled. Turn no more than once or twice per side. Always use a spatula or tongs, do not prod and never ever use a fork, especially on sausages, as this just increases the possibility of ‘flare-ups!’Remember ‘Burnt is Bad!’ Food should never be cooked on too high a heat or for too long , as this simply encourages it to burn on the outside and either ‘dry out’ or stay raw in the middle, creating a health hazard.

Seventeen year old Conor from Crecora secured his place at the prestigious competition after developing a system that can measure, display, transmit and record the timing difference between, and the force exerted by, a crew of rowers.Conor’s system is unique in that it looks at the timing of the oar and the force of each individual stroke, and not just the movement of the seat. This system is expected to improve the performance of rowing crews as it allows a greater synchronicity amongst the rowers.Conor travelled to Los Angeles for the competition with his teacher Edel Farrell.Principal of Coláiste Chiaráin, Noel Malone, expressed his immense pride and awe at such an outstanding achievement.“Conor is a lovely lad and is very popular in the school,” said Mr Malone.“We were all very hopeful that his wonderful project would be recognised for its sheer ingenuity and brilliance. We are grateful to Intel Ireland for showing such faith in Conor and their decision to send him to LA has now been amply justified. We are all so proud of him,” he concluded.
