The FTSE 100 burst back through the critical 6,000-point marker today as it blasted further away from recent six-month troughs. It’s hoped that the Democratic victory will lead to more rounds of heavy stimulus to mend the battered US economy.It’s too early to say whether or not the optimism washing over global stock markets will last. Spiking Covid-19 infection rates all across the world still cast a long shadow over the global economy. Many of those thinking of investing in UK shares are likely to continue sitting on the sidelines until the mist clears.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…Getting rich with an ISAThis isn’t a strategy that I agree with, though. Stock market crashes can help Stocks and Shares ISA investors like me to get stinking rich. History shows us that those who buy after UK share prices plummet during economic crisis often make eye-popping riches in the subsequent years. It’s a perfect example of fortune favouring the brave.Sure, global equities have enjoyed a ‘Biden Bounce’ in recent days. But a large number of UK shares still trade at what I consider to be bargain-basement prices following the stock market crash of early 2020. And there are plenty of quality stocks like this that I’m considering adding to my ISA today.I’m confident that cut-price shares with strong balance sheets and bright long-term profits outlooks will rebound strongly in price during the 2020s. They will likely rise as economic conditions improve and investor confidence steadily recovers. And, as a consequence, I can sit back and expect to make a fortune in the process. Opportunistic investing like this helped hundreds of Stocks and Shares ISA investors build investment UK share portfolios worth £1m or more in the decade following the banking crisis of 2008 and 2009.Making millions with UK sharesWe all know that stock investing is a proven way to make brilliant returns. Studies show that long-term Stocks and Shares ISA investors make an average yearly return of 8-10%. This means that someone who maxes out their £20,000 annual allowance by investing an equal amount each month can realistically expect to have become a stock market millionaire inside 19 years.Unfortunately, not all of us can afford to invest that much each month. And this is where the beauty of buying UK shares after market crashes comes in. The stock market that always follow economic crises mean that we can expect to make returns much bigger than that long-term-8%-to-10% yearly average.Don’t forget that the FTSE 100 more than doubled in the nine years following the banking crisis. And I reckon UK share markets have a great chance to soar again when the Covid-19 crisis ends, helped by ultra-loose central bank monetary policy. Buying after the 2020 stock market crash has boosted my chances of joining the millionaires club. And I plan to keep building my ISA portfolio too. Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Targeted threats against Quito staff of pan-Latin TV news channel Telesur

first_img December 24, 2019 Find out more Coronavirus “information heroes” – journalism that saves lives EcuadorAmericas News News Reporters Without Borders today condemned threats made in the past month against the Quito-based staff of the pan-Latin American TV news channel Telesur. This is not the first time the station, launched by the Venezuelan government, has been the target of hostility. The press freedom organisation calls on the Ecuadorean authorities to quickly put a stop to it.“The death threats and attempted sabotage of Telesur’s Ecuadorean branch come on the heels of attempts to harass and intimidate its Colombian correspondent, Freddy Muñoz (see release of 16 February),” Reporters Without Borders said. “Telesur represents an important current of opinion in Latin America and the way it is being attacked and smeared in some countries violates the principle of respect for editorial pluralism,” the organisation added. “The threats have already been reported to the Ecuadorean judicial authorities. We urge them to identify those responsible and bring them to justice.”In a Quito news conference yesterday, Telesur chairman Andrés Izarra condemned a “campaign of harassment against the station’s staff” in Quito that began about a month ago. He said journalist Helena Rodríguez had received death threats from a “Death to Telesur” email address. “The messages accuse her of being (Venezuelan) President Hugo Chávez’s prostitute,” he said. Similar threats have been sent to other staff members and one of the station’s vehicles was sabotaged.Muñoz, Telesur’s Colombia correspondent, was arrested at Bogotá airport last December by Colombian intelligence officials as he was returning from Caracas, where the station has its headquarters. Accused of being in the pay of the guerrillas of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) and with a photomontage supposedly supporting this claim, he was detained until 9 January. He subsequently had to flee because the judicial authorities were looking for him again, and because he was under threat from Colombia’s paramilitaries.Telesur was launched on President Chávez’s initiative on 24 July 2005 as a counterweight to the influence of the US networks in Latin America. Izarra, a journalist and former communication minister in the Chávez government, has been its chairman since last year. The station is jointly owned by the governments of Venezuela, Argentina, Uruguay, Cuba and, most recently, Bolivia.

Colonel denies involvement in Dink murder as parliamentary committee accuses security forces of negligence

first_img News Reporters Without Borders today voiced unease about delays and twists and turns in the investigation into the 2007 murder of the journalist of Armenian origin Hrant Dink as ex police chief Colonel Ali Oz denied involvement and a parliamentary committee accused the security forces of negligence in the case.Col Oz gave, former head of the gendarmes in Trabzon, denied at a court in Bursa, south of Istanbul on 21 July claims made by two police officers during their trial on 20 March that their superiors, including Ali Oz, were aware of plans to kill Dink. Running in parallel with the court hearing, a parliamentary sub-committee issued a report on 23 July that accused the security forces of negligence in the case.The committee’s president, Mehmet Ocaktan, stressed that the report was independent and that its role was not to clear up the case to decide where there had been official negligence.“We continue to feel concern about the delays and twists and turns in the investigation into the murder of Hrant Dink” said Reporters Without Borders. “The report produced by the parliamentary sub-committee confirms that police and gendarmes in Trabzon made mistakes.However they both continue to deny being at fault.“We urge that all the investigations currently opened should be joined up so that responsibilities can be sorted out”, it said.For the first time since the Dink murder on 19 January 2007, the former head of the gendarmes in Trabzon, Ali Oz, has been giving evidence as a witness. He denied all the statements made by Okan Simsek and Veysel Sahin, two gendarmes in Trabzon, who accused him of being told of plans to kill Hrant Dink at a meeting in summer 2006. The colonel told the judge, “I can no longer remember if this case was on the agenda”. He added that he had been informed of the journalist’s death by phone while he was travelling.Lawyers for the Dink family questioned Oz about the fact that Okan Simsek and Veysel Sahin were aware of the plans to kill Dink. The colonel replied, “If Simsek and Sahin had such information, it was up to them to do what was necessary. They didn’t need my orders. As I have already said, I do not remember if I was informed.”Two days afterwards the president of the parliamentary sub-committee, Mehmet Ocaktan, said, “We have concluded that there was negligence, mistakes and a lack of coordination between the gendarmerie and the police.”Ocaktan refused to reply to journalists’ about whether it was contradictory for an investigation to be made into the Gendarmerie in Trabzon, but not into the police. “Our role is not to shed light on the murder but to look at administrative negligence. The trial is under way and we cannot comment on it,” he said.

The energy content of dragonflies (Odonata) in relation to predation by falcons

first_imgDragonflies and damselflies (Odonata) are important prey for many small falcons, and the recent expansion of the breeding range of the Hobby into eastern England has been associated with an increased availability of dragonfly prey to juveniles. We have therefore measured the energy content and elemental composition of a range of common British dragonflies. Carbon and nitrogen contents were typical of aquatic invertebrates and did not vary with dragonfly size, whereas ash content was significantly reduced in larger species. The mean energy content of dragonfly tissue was 24.6 kJ/g (dry mass) and showed no significant variation between species. The energy content of an individual dragonfly ranged from 0.8 to 9.4 kJ for the species examined in this study. Data on the energy requirements of free-living falcons suggest that a juvenile Hobby in late summer could meet its daily energy requirement by capturing between 75 and 90 Migrant Hawker or 200 to 250 Common Darter dragonflies each day.last_img read more

Epibenthic macrofauna associated with the shelf and slope of a young and isolated Southern Ocean island

first_imgThe remote South Sandwich arc is an archipelago of small volcanic islands and seamounts entirely surrounded by deep water and about 600 km away from the closest island, South Georgia. As some of the youngest islands (< 5 m.y.) in the Southern Ocean they are ideal for studying colonization processes of the seabed by benthic fauna, but are rarely investigated because of remoteness and extreme weather. The current study attempted to quantify the richness and abundance of the epibenthic macrofauna around the Southern Thule group by taking five epibenthic sledge samples along a depth transect including three shelf (one at 300 m and two at 500 m) and two slope stations (1000 and 1500 m). Our aim was to investigate higher taxon richness and community composition in an isolated Antarctic locality, since recent volcanic eruptions between 1964 and 1997. We examined patterns across all epibenthic macrofauna at phylum and class levels, and investigated trends in some model groups of crustaceans to order and family level. We found that abundance was highest in the shallowest sample and decreased with depth. Shelf samples (300 and 500 m) were dominated by molluscs and malacostracans while at the deeper stations (1000 and 1500 m) nematodes were the most abundant taxon. Surprisingly, the shallow shelf was dominated by animals with restricted dispersal abilities, such as direct developing brooders (malacostracans) or those with lecithotrophic larvae (bivalves of the genus Yoldiella, most bryozoan species). Despite Southern Thule's geological youth, recent eruptions, and its remoteness the shallow shelf was rich in higher taxa (phyla/classes) as well as orders and families of our model groups. Future work at higher taxonomic resolution (species level) should greatly increase understanding of how life has reached and established on these young and highly disturbed seabeds.last_img read more
