Here’s what I’m doing now Enter Your Email Address Imperial Brands (LSE: IMB) is a FTSE 100 fast-moving consumer goods company (FMCG). It offers a range of cigarettes, tobacco, cigars, and has moved into the new vaping sector. The company is a global operator, and one of the Big Two smoking companies alongside British American Tobacco. The company released its AGM statement this morning, announcing that tobacco trading was in line with expectations, with a weighting (as previously guided) to the second half of the year.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…But what has sent the price tumbling is weaker-than-expected consumer demand for vapour. This is in part due to the US FDA’s ban of certain flavours of cartride-based vapour devices, which has hurt sales.Is vaping the new smoking?Many are calling vaping the new smoking, in reality, the jury is still out on the health effects of this activity. In the last century, smoking was promoted as healthy and even encouraged by tobacco companies. In the 21st century, tobacco companies are struggling as a result of regulatory changes.Bans on smoking in public places, required warnings on cigarette packets, and an increasingly aware demographic group focused on the environment and health have all been headwinds for the tobacco companies. It was hoped that vaping would be the natural transition from smoking, but regulators are not giving the tobacco companies an easy ride. Declining fundamental strengthIn the last results for Imperial, profit declined to £1,155m from 1,745m. This is a big drop, however, the company is still generating £3,708m in operating cash flow before movements in working capital, compared to £3,505m in the prior period.The company isn’t in trouble yet, but with such headwinds against it, Imperial needs to adapt. Total tobacco volume declined 4.4% but the net revenue from these products increased 2.7%. While the amount of smokers may be dropping in terms of the percentage of people who smoke, more people are being born and becoming life-long customers of Imperial Brands. However, the company’s focus is on transitioning smokers to next generation products (NGP) – net revenue in this sector grew 52.4%. NGPThe company wants smokers to choose its products with lower health risks by providing high-quality NGPs.  Vapour products, under the company’s brand blu, are different to all other tobacco-based products as they do not contain tobacco leaf. Blu has established itself in both the UK and the US, and is making inroads across Europe too. In my opinion, buying Imperial Brands stock is a bet on these NGPs being a success. Given the regulatory issues appearing globally, I think there are plenty of other, better opportunities both for growth and income investing. So Imperial Brands stock can drop as much as it wants – unless I see a serious shift in sentiment for vaping, I would not consider buying any shares. center_img I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

This 7% yield may be the safest on the FTSE 100! I’d buy it in an ISA to retire early

first_imgSimply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Harvey Jones | Saturday, 4th April, 2020 | More on: BATS Now is a tough time to be an income investor, as stock markets crash and FTSE 100 companies scrap their dividends. This makes life harder for investors who want to buy reliable income stocks for their Stocks and Shares ISA, to fund an early retirement.I have been casting around for dividends that should endure, even if the economic lockdown and stock market crash continue. I was therefore fascinated to see a report by Deutsche Bank, which named tobacco dividends as “amongst the safest in the market”.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…That will come as good news for many ISA investors, as others delay their dividends or drop them altogether.Safe FTSE 100 dividendsEven FTSE 100 companies that can afford to continue paying dividends may face pressure to freeze payments. This is even more likely if they furlough staff or receive crisis support from the public purse.British American Tobacco (LSE:BATS) customers are likely to carry on smoking during this crisis. Some may possibly smoke more than before as life gets stressful. Some who have lost their income may quit smoking if they can no longer justify the expense.Tobacco stocks are traditionally seen as safe havens, but their share prices can still take a hit. In the 2008 financial crisis, the BATS share price roughly halved, before recovering strongly. Investors who bought at a discounted price then will have been amply rewarded. Bargain seekers have another opportunity today.British American Tobacco share price temptsSo far British American Tobacco has fallen around 15%, a relatively modest drop compared to many on the FTSE 100. It trades at a lowly 9.1 times earnings, although you shouldn’t put too much faith in stock valuations right now, given the uncertainty.You can put more faith in the company’s dividend yield, which stands at a generous 7.1%, with cover of 1.5. That would be attractive at any time, even more so in the middle of this unprecedented stock market crash. It could still help you retire early.Deutsche Bank isn’t the only broker to highlight the relatively safety of tobacco company dividends. Last week, Citigroup highlighted British American Tobacco as being able to maintain payouts.Stocks and Shares ISA income heroBritish American Tobacco hit the news earlier this week, as biotech subsidiary Kentucky BioProcessing announced it was developing a potential coronavirus vaccine. The news had surprisingly little impact on the British American Tobacco share price, though, and remains a sideshow.If you are happy investing in this sector, the British American Tobacco share price should prove relatively resilient. With luck, so should its yield. Nothing is guaranteed, but this could be a great way of generating a reliable income inside a Stocks and Shares ISA.The Covid-10 stock market crash may have knocked your plans to retire early. British American Tobacco could keep you on track. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Harvey Jones has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Churches postpone funerals, weddings amid calls for limits on gatherings…

first_imgChurches postpone funerals, weddings amid calls for limits on gatherings to slow pandemic Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Director of Music Morristown, NJ Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Health & Healthcare, Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME The March 16 funeral of Page Lea Sr. at Galilee Church in Virginia Beach, Virginia, is seen from the congregation’s Facebook video of the service.[Episcopal News Service] When Page Lea Sr. died late last month at age 69, funeral planners at Galilee Church in Virginia Beach, Virginia, knew to expect a big turnout. Lea had been an active and beloved member of the community and his Episcopal congregation, where he previously served as a warden and sang in the choir.Normally, the Rev. Andrew Buchanan would have planned for an overflow crowd of about 600 people at Lea’s funeral on March 16. But days earlier, Southern Virginia Bishop Susan Haynes had called for suspension of worship services and other church activity in the diocese in response to public health efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19, the new coronavirus that has become a global pandemic.Congregations like Galilee are rethinking nearly every aspect of parish life, as the coronavirus spreads unchecked across the country infecting thousands of Americans, and funerals are no exception. A majority of bishops have joined Haynes in canceling in-person worship services after public health authorities warned the virus easily could be transmitted at large gatherings, leaving congregations to make tough decisions about how to respond to grieving families.For future funerals, Galilee likely will ask those families to wait if possible, but “we felt a pastoral responsibility to hold the funerals that we committed to hold,” Buchanan, Galilee’s rector, told Episcopal News Service. So, for Lea’s funeral and a March 17 funeral for 96-year-old Mary “Perk” Brown, the church livestreamed the services on its Facebook page and encouraged mourners to take advantage of that alternative to in-person attendance.Lea’s funeral still drew more than 100 people to the church, Buchanan said, but hundreds more watched the service online instead, with some commenting that they were grateful for that opportunity. A smaller turnout of about 80 mourners attended Brown’s funeral, and the live video again earned positive reviews from those who stayed home.Episcopal congregations are taking similar approaches to weddings, often asking couples to postpone unless they can limit the services to just a few people. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued guidelines on March 15 calling for the cancellation of gatherings of 50 or more people, and the White House followed up March 16 by advising an even lower threshold of 10 people.New: Starting immediately and for the next 8 weeks, CDC recommends cancelling all events of 50 or more people. Full recommendation here: https://t.co/LrjUt4rl7B #COVID19 pic.twitter.com/OroIqhTYJo— CDC (@CDCgov) March 16, 2020Galilee is a large congregation, with Sunday attendance usually toping 500 people across three services, and it typically averages one or two weddings a month. All but one of the weddings it had scheduled for May have been rescheduled for the fall, Buchanan said, and the May wedding still on the calendar will be for only about 10 people. The couple will plan a larger wedding reception at a later date.Like Galilee, Episcopal Church of the Ascension in Dallas, Texas, doesn’t have any weddings on its schedule until May. The rector, the Rev. Paul Klitzke, told ENS he is hopeful that Ascension will be able to keep those dates, if conditions improve in the coronavirus outbreak.As for any funeral requests, “where possible, the hope is that those will be postponed,” Klitzke said, but he is open to holding a small service just for the family if that is requested. A more public memorial service could be arranged for the future.He also acknowledged the grim fact that the coronavirus will bring more requests for funerals since “the virus may claim some lives of those that we love. That’s the much harder piece to account for.”COVID-19 has been diagnosed in all 50 states, pushing the number of identified cases in the country to more than 7,000 as of March 17, and the nationwide death toll has topped 100. More than 7,000 people have died worldwide.Its symptoms are similar to influenza and, in many cases, are mild or even undetectable, though the disease can be particularly dangerous for high-risk patients, such as older individuals and those with underlying health problems.Presiding Bishop Michael Curry issued a letter to The Episcopal Church on March 17 encouraging the cancellation of in-person worship services as a precaution, with the expectation that this also would affect Holy Week and Easter celebrations.“It is reasonable to assume that some form of recommendations restricting public gatherings will continue for some time,” Curry said. “Considering this changing landscape, I believe that suspension of in-person public worship is generally the most prudent course of action at this time.”Diocesan bishops across the church responded with statements of their own – if they hadn’t already issued such directives – calling for cancellations in their dioceses while emphasizing online streaming options for worship. Several of the bishops specifically addressed the question of funerals.“No funerals may take place and must be postponed to a later date,” Milwaukee Bishop Steven Miller told his southern Wisconsin diocese on March 17. “Clergy may officiate at graveside services, being cognizant of the number of attendees. When possible, interments should be postponed to a later date.”“Postpone funerals and weddings to a later date,” said Bishop Russell Kendrick of the Diocese of the Central Gulf Coast, which includes the Florida Panhandle and southern Alabama.Louisiana Bishop Morris Thompson also advised churches in his diocese, in and around New Orleans and Baton Rouge, not to hold memorial services and to postpone interment to a later date if possible. “However, we are the church and we will continue to bury our dead,” he said. “So, if there is no other option, services should be limited in scope (graveside, for example) and size (immediate family only).”Retired Bishop Suffragan Barbara Harris, shown here at the Diocese of Massachusetts 2014 electing convention, died March 13 at age 89, but plans for her funeral are on hold due to the coronavirus. Photo: Matthew Cavanaugh/Diocese of MassachusettsThe Diocese of Massachusetts cited the coronavirus in announcing that plans were pending for the funeral of Bishop Barbara Harris, the trailblazing retired bishop suffragan who died March 13 at age 89. A service will be held at Washington National Cathedral in the nation’s capital, but “details will be set at a later time” because of restrictions on travel and gathering size, the diocese said.In Oklahoma, “exceptions for funerals is on a case-by-case basis in consultation with the bishop,” Bishop Ed Konieczny said in a March 13 message.And Virginia Bishop Susan Goff, who on March 11 was one of the first Episcopal bishops to order the congregations in her diocese to halt in-person worship, addressed funerals in a follow-up message: “Where possible, postpone. If that is not possible, do the service either without communion or with communion in one kind. … Be sure to talk with the family. The time around a funeral is a time of fear and anxiety, and you will need to exercise your best pastoral skills and make your best pastoral decisions.”In Connecticut, Bishop Ian Douglas did not mention funerals specifically in his March 13 letter that urged clergy and lay leaders in his diocese to cancel in-person worship services. The Rev. Gillian Barr, rector at Calvary Episcopal Church in Stonington, decided to proceed March 14 with the funeral of a 95-year-old priest, which drew about 50 people, but she expects to handle future requests for funerals differently – either with even smaller services or postponements.“I think I would have to customize it to the family,” Barr told ENS. And with the congregation no longer gathering in person for now, the funeral “was actually the last full-blown worship service we’re going to have for a while.”Galilee Church in Virginia Beach has begun offering online Sunday worship services while in-person worship at the church remains suspended. Given the positive response to the live video of the recent funerals, Buchanan thinks the church will start offering that as a possible option if requested by families for future funerals.“Now that we’ve gone to livestream for funerals, I don’t think there’s any going back,” he said.– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Cornal Hendricks and Richie McCaw tries from great All Blacks vs Springboks Test

first_imgMonday Sep 15, 2014 Cornal Hendricks and Richie McCaw tries from great All Blacks vs Springboks Test The All Blacks proved too composed yet again as they maintained their impeccable home record with a hard-fought 14-10 victory over the Springboks in Wellington. It was a low scoring, tough Test match but still managed to provide two outstanding tries. It was another epic battle between the two sides, with the visitors coming close in the dying minutes after surge after surge at the line, but the home side’s composure and incredible defence managed to hold them out and eventually get the ball into touch with time up.Earlier in the match the Springboks had scored first through a lovely backline move off a lineout, with winger Cornal Hendricks flying through a gap that young Handre Pollard drew open.South Africa went into the half with the lead but later it was the turn of that superhuman number eight, Kieran Read, to produce another unbelievable offload, putting skipper McCaw in at the corner.With the win, New Zealand have extended their lead at the top of the IRB World Rankings. A fifteen point or more win for the visitors would have taken them to number one, but as it is, the World Champions have a commanding five point lead, with Australia in third place. It wasn’t to be a fairytale 100th Test match for Springbok captain Jean de Villiers, but some consolation may be the way that McCaw and the New Zealand Rugby Union honoured him post match with an official capping process and sincere words from the All Black captain.It was a lovely moment and one that only serves to strengthen the bond that these two old foes have, and serves to solidify the age old rugby mantra of respect, both on and off the field. On the injury front, Ruan Pienaar will play no further part in the tournament after damaging his medial cruciate ligament, and for the All Blacks, Ma’a Nonu left the field with what has turned out to be a broken arm. He’ll be out for the rest of the season.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries , The Rugby Championship Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Hepatitis A epidemic is desolating the homeless in San Diego

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this Ibrahim FardanHepatitis A is desolating San Diego’s homeless population, which is the fourth-largest in the U.S. within a city. The county’s Health and Human Services Agency reported that 16 people have died, and 421 individuals have been sickened by this disease.  It is a viral disease that has symptoms of fever, fatigue, nausea, abdominal pain and sometimes leads to death. It can be treated and its spread prevented.According to the Hepatitis Health Center, hepatitis A, B and C are distinct viruses that affect the liver. Hepatitis A is caused by drinking contaminated or unclean water, eating shellfish harvested from sewage-contaminated water, or coming into contact with an infected person’s blood, stool or other bodily fluids. In early September, San Diego officials declared a public health emergency in this city because of hepatitis A cases.Longtime San Diego resident Ibrahim Fardan lives in downtown San Diego and has spent much time observing the huge homeless population in this area and in other parts of San Diego County. Workers World had an opportunity to interview Fardan in Horton Plaza in the city’s downtown area.Gloria Verdieu: What do you think about this outbreak of hepatitis A in San Diego, which is devastating the homeless population here?Ibrahim Fardan: Well, they are saying that 16 people have died and over 400 are infected. I think that what the city is doing — putting in handwashing stations, opening up public bathrooms 24 hours a day, putting up a few tents for showers — are things that they should have done a long time ago. They knew this was coming for a long time.  Also, they underestimate the numbers in the homeless population.GV: Do you think the city of San Diego is doing all that can be done to prevent more cases and prevent the spread of this virus?IF: They are doing more to harass the homeless. For example, they talk about washing the streets with bleach. I saw them spraying bleach on people’s tents and on their belongings early in the morning without any warning.Look at this courtyard: It is normally filled with homeless this time of morning, but homeless “monitors” are here whose job is to keep the homeless out. If they see you sitting for too long without buying anything, they come up to you and start asking questions and harassing you until you move on. They are doing more to get rid of the homeless, to make them disappear, than to help them.GV: Where do they want them to go? Why don’t the homeless go to the shelters to sleep, get food and hang out?IF: The homeless are being pushed under bridges, into parks under trees, into the bushes and into residential areas where they are not wanted. The city wants the homeless to be invisible, especially to the tourists, because this is supposed to be “America’s finest city.” In some downtown areas,  they are forced into such small spaces that they practically live on top of each other.There are not enough rooms in the shelters for them, and some homeless people don’t want to go to the shelters because they can’t take their stuff into the shelters with them. If they leave their stuff in the streets, the police will confiscate all of it. I don’t know what they have to do to get it back, but it is a big hassle.Also, you have to qualify to go to the shelters. You just can’t go and take a shower. You have to be registered, and there are a bunch of rules you have to follow to be able to get into a shelter. The police treat all homeless people pretty much the same. I see the police harassing Blacks, Mexicans, migrants and white homeless people. It makes no difference to them what color you are.  So when we speak for the homeless, we must speak for all of them.Also, what I am starting to notice is that there are more and more homeless youth. Some are students who are attending San Diego State University. I go to SDSU a lot, and I notice many of the students can’t afford housing and they end up homeless.  I was not aware of this.GV: Is it true that a lot of the homeless are mentally ill or have some psychological issues?IF: The homeless are the unseen, which causes some of them  to react negatively to their situation. I’ve seen people walk over someone whose face was in a puddle of water on the ground. When people are treated this way, they react to their situation by talking or singing to themselves, and even acting crazy.  Others respond by getting a routine, a daily schedule that includes steps to get themselves out of this situation.In both cases, as their situations improve or they get into a program where there is hope of regaining their dignity, they begin to act more “normal.” I’ve seen it happen with men, women and youth who found themselves in a homeless situation. Being homeless is a devastating, traumatic experience for most people. It’s like having PTSD [post-traumatic stress disorder]. People react or respond in all kinds of ways. That’s just the way it is.The homeless are being pushed out, walked over and crowded into smaller areas with no means of protecting themselves from diseases. The city should deal with the issues of shelter, affordable housing, job preparation, and provide counseling, programs for dealing with depression, health education, drug addiction and all of the issues affecting the homeless.But the city extends the hours for the bathrooms, puts out handwashing stations and a few showers, washes the streets down with bleach, and calls for mass vaccinations of those who decide to show up. Yes, that’s just the way it is.last_img read more

In a op-ed piece in the Washington Times, Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson discusses how busing failed to address the lack of a racial utopia in America, but the Obama administration has recently implemented a new HUD rule that will “desegregate” housing.Earlier this month, HUD released its final rule on Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing. The rule was created to “desegregate” housing by withholding funds from communities that fail to demonstrate their projects “affirmatively further” fair housing.“As a former mayor, I know firsthand that strong communities are vital to the well-being and prosperity of families,” said HUD Secretary Julián Castro. “Unfortunately, too many Americans find their dreams limited by where they come from, and a ZIP code should never determine a child’s future. This important step will give local leaders the tools they need to provide all Americans with access to safe, affordable housing in communities that are rich with opportunity.”Carson adds that the Fair Housing Act and other laws have contributed the reduction of explicit discrimination in housing, but significant disparities in housing availability and quality persist.”The new rule would not only condition the grant of HUD funds to municipalities on building affordable housing as is the case today, but would require that such affordable housing be built primarily in wealthier neighborhoods with few current minority residents and that the new housing be aggressively marketed to minorities,” Carson noted.At the end of June, the Supreme Court ruled that the use of “disparate impact” claims can legally be brought about under the Fair Housing Act. While the Court ruled that disparate impact claims are cognizable under the Fair Housing Act, that ruling came with a caveat.”So the Court holds that there is a disparate impact claim under the FHA as a matter of statutory interpretation, but the Court cautions that remedial orders in disparate impact cases that impose racial targets or quotas could be unconstitutional,” Attorney Kevin Russell said on the SCOTUS blog. “. . .The Court emphasizes, however, that disparate impact liability should be imposed cautiously. To avoid constitutional problems, statistical disparity is not enough.”Oftentimes, these forced racial equality attempts by the government create larger issues instead of solving them, Carson says.”These government-engineered attempts to legislate racial equality create consequences that often make matters worse,” Carson concluded. “There are reasonable ways to use housing policy to enhance the opportunities available to lower-income citizens, but based on the history of failed socialist experiments in this country, entrusting the government to get it right can prove downright dangerous.” Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Subscribelast_img read more

Presiding Officer of the Special NIA Court at Mumbai, namely Shri Padalkar who has been trying the case was set to retire on account of superannuation on February 29, 2020.A bench of Chief Justice SA Bobde, Justices AS Bopanna & Hrishikesh Roy gave liberty to the father of the victim to move the learned Chief Justice of High Court of Judicature at Bombay with the instant plea and stated that the learned Chief Justice may take an appropriate decision in this regard.The bench was hearing a plea filed by 60-year-old resident of Malegaon, Nisar Ahmed Sayyed Bilal who lost his son Sayyed Azhar Nisar Ahmed in the explosion that took place on Bhikku Chowk, Malegaon on September 29, 2008.The plea contends that a delay in trial of the case is antithetical to Article 21 of the Constitution.”For that due to delay in conclusion of the trial, the fundamental right of the Petitioner and other victims has been violated. Under Article 21 of the Constitution, the Petitioner is entitled to speedy trial of offences, especially when the son of the Petitioner lost his life in the said blasts”, the Petition averrred.In light of the above, the Petition states that even though the mishap occurred on 29.09.2008, it has already been 12 years since the trial has been going on and replacing the Judge (who will take further time to familiarize with the voluminous records of the case) shall further perpetuate delay.”He has been able to examine 140 witnesses in the last 1 year and 4 months. Any new incumbent who has posted would take further time to come to grips of the record of the case which runs into thousands and thousands of pages. It is submitted that the Ld. Presiding Officer is conversant with the record and it would be in the interests of justice if the term of the Ld. Presiding Officer is extended so that the trial could be completed which is pending for the last 12 years. It is after long delay of 10 years that charges were framed”, an extract of the plea read.The Petitioner had previously made a representation to the Hon’ble Chief Justice of the Bombay High Court on February 1, 2020 requesting for extension of the tenure of the Presiding Officer. However, no directions were passed in that regard.On February 26, the Bombay High Court pulled up the National Investigation Agency (NIA) for lack of effective progress in the Malegaon blast case trial.Subsequently, on February 27, BJP MP Pragya Singh Thakur, who is one of the prime accused in the Malegaon blast case, appeared before the special court in Mumbai in connection with the case.Seven persons, including Thakur and Lt Col Prasad Purohit, are facing trial in the case.The 2006 Malegaon bombings were a series of bomb blasts that took place in  September 2006 in Malegaon, a town in the Nashik district of the Indian state of Maharashtra, 290 km northeast of Mumbai. Six people were killed and over 100 were injured.Click Here To Download OrderRead OrderNext Storylast_img read more
