Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Image source: Getty Images Jabran Khan | Wednesday, 29th April, 2020 | More on: PRU VMUK I see these 2 stocks as bargains after the market crash Around four weeks ago we saw the market bottom of the crash (we hope). Since then, stocks have bounced back and are starting to look expensive again. But there are still opportunities out there.Two stocks I’m interested in are Prudential (LSE:PRU) and Virgin Money (LSE:VMUK).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…Market crash opportunity #1Prudential is a life insurance and financial services company, and a FTSE 100 stalwart. The market crash saw 45% wiped off its share price value. It fell from nearly 1,500p in mid-February, to 795p at the market bottom. But the shares are currently trading at over 1,000p each, so it has clearly staged a mini-recovery.There are a few key reasons why I think Prudential is a market crash opportunity. First of all, at current levels, its price-to-earnings ratio is close to 7, which means to me there’s value to be had here, especially with its future earnings potential. Prudential has made huge strides in the Asian market and its growth trend, as well as the general opportunity in that region, both excite me. The Asian life insurance market could be worth over $1trn, so there’s some market share to be had here as PRU starts to make an impact.Prudential also possesses a healthy balance sheet as confirmed in a Covid-19 update at the end of March. I believe there are no issues that would see it struggling during this crash. There’s currently no decision regarding its final dividend. At current levels however, it offers a 3%+ dividend yield, which is an attractive factor.Finally, one strong sign is that a prominent director within the business bought shares earlier this month. I always see this a positive indication of confidence in the business and its direction. So Prudential represents a great opportunity right now in this current market crash, in my opinion.Opportunity #2Virgin Money lost nearly 70% of its share price value when the stock market crashed. From a per share price of 190p, it plummeted to 54p per share by March 23, which was the market bottom. At the time of writing, it has only just reached over 70p per share.VMUK’s full-year results announced at the end of last year showed a huge loss due to PPI claims. It did recover somewhat as seen in its Q1 trading update at the beginning of February, with reported increases in customer deposit growth, business lending growth and personal lending growth. Management advised that PPI was a side issue and that the rest of the business was on track. Prior to the market crash, a £1.7bn deal in June 2018 saw the original Virgin Money bought by Clydesdale & Yorkshire Banking Group. Previously known as CYBG, the holding company changed its name to Virgin Money UK after completion and all brands now trade under VMUK. The deal meant VM shareholders received 1.2125 CBYG shares for each of their original shares. In total the VM shareholders ended up owning nearly 38% of the combined group. Based on current projections, the now-larger Virgin Money could report earnings of over 20p per share for 2020. At that level, its price-to-earnings ratio would sit at just over 5. Furthermore, there’s a potential dividend yield of over 5% which is great value in my opinion. There’s some risk here, but with the shares so cheap right now due to the market crash, I feel it’s worth considering.  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.

Why I’d stop saving and start investing in UK shares to make a passive income

The recent volatility among many UK shares could cause some investors to sell them and hold cash in search of a passive income. However, the returns available on cash could prove to be very disappointing over the long run. Moreover, low stock prices may mean the yields available on British stocks are very attractive.As such, now could be the right time to stop saving and start investing in a diverse range of dividend shares.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…Making a passive income from cash savingsFalling interest rates mean many savings accounts currently offer scant opportunity to make a worthwhile passive income. In fact, obtaining an interest rate significantly above 1% on easy access savings is very challenging. As such, savers will need to have a vast sum of capital available to make even a modest income return from their cash savings.Looking ahead, things could get even worse for savers. There’s continued talk among policymakers about the prospect of negative interest rates. While banks may never end up charging customers to hold cash savings, the prospect of improving returns on cash balances seems to be low.This could mean that your spending power is eroded over the long run. Especially if inflation increases due to the amount of monetary policy stimulus being used to combat a period of weak economic growth.Dividend opportunities among UK sharesOf course, making a passive income from UK shares has been challenging this year. Many FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 companies have decided to cut their dividends in response to uncertain operating conditions.However, it’s still possible to build a diverse portfolio of income shares that offer high yields in many cases. The stock market crash has caused many UK shares to trade at low prices due to the risks they face. This means that, in some cases, their yields have risen to exceptionally high levels. Compared to other assets, such as cash, they offer returns that are many times higher.Furthermore, dividend growth prospects could mean that making a passive income becomes easier for investors in British stocks. The past performance of the economy shows it’s likely to recover from its present challenges to post positive growth. This may allow investors in dividend stocks to enjoy an inflation-beating rise in their incomes over the coming years.Risk reductionUsing UK shares to make a passive income is clearly riskier than holding cash. However, those risks can be reduced by holding a diverse range of companies in your portfolio. Although they are likely to experience uncertain trading conditions for many months, their potential income returns appear to be significantly more attractive than holding cash.Therefore, buying stocks could prove to be a sound move over the long run for income-seeking investors.

Detroiters protest Taser killing of Black youth Damon Grimes

first_imgDamon Grimes, a 15-year-old African-American youth riding an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) on Aug. 26 died of injuries from an accident after he was tasered by Michigan State Police officer Mark Bessner from his police vehicle on the East Side of Detroit.Grimes lost control of his ATV, crashed into a pickup truck and suffered a head trauma, dying later in a local hospital.This incident, which amounts to a brutal racist murder by the Michigan State Police — really an occupation army — has aroused a series of demonstrations and legal actions.Grimes’ family has launched a $50 million lawsuit against the officer, who has been sued in the past for his brutality with Tasers. In the meantime, Bessner is receiving paid leave for violating police protocol, as it is supposedly against police rules to discharge a Taser from a vehicle.The Grimes’ family held a vigil on Aug. 30 at the intersection of Gratiot Avenue and Rossini Drive that turned into a protest of over 200 community members. Those at the vigil gathered to show their support for Grimes’ family, wearing his favorite colors of red, black and white or laying out balloons and candles.In honor of the youth’s memory and in defiance of the rarely enforced ban on riding ATVs in the streets of Detroit, a group of riders gathered on their ATVs and blocked the streets until police arrived and ordered them to disperse.On Sept. 2, around 30 protesters gathered in downtown Detroit to condemn this attack and to demand that Bessner be arrested and prosecuted. This protest, organized by the Moratorium Now! Coalition, also called for an end to the use of Tasers in the city of Detroit and an end to high-speed chases.With the crowd from the annual Detroit Jazz Festival circulating around the demonstration, several speakers condemned this racist action and said that Detroit needs funding for education and housing for the city’s children, not a police army that kills and terrorizes the Black community. These speeches put this attack into the context of the continued dispossession and looting of the city by banks and developers like Chase and Quicken Loans. State senator and mayoral candidate Coleman Young II also spoke, calling for a fight against this injustice.A group of about 50 also gathered on Sept. 1 to protest Grimes’ death outside of the Detroit Police Headquarters. Some in the group confronted Chief of Police James Craig about the brutality of the Detroit police. The group also called for ending state troopers’ pursuit of drivers who have committed traffic violations.The ruling class in Detroit is waging a war to dispossess Black residents of Detroit to make way for their racist fantasies of a “new Detroit,” where everyone is welcome except for Black, working-class people and immigrants, who have lived there for decades.The murder of Damon Grimes is an injustice that the Detroit community cannot abide. His murder comes at a time when the connection between imperialist violence abroad and at home couldn’t be clearer, with President Donald Trump allowing the sale of military equipment to municipal police forces.People are calling for justice for Damon Grimes and his family and the immediate arrest and conviction of Mark Bessner, and to end the killing of Black people by racist police armies!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Firat was covering an IS attack on the camp when she was fatally injured in the chest by shrapnel from an exploding mortar shell. Her body was repatriated to Turkey the next day for burial in her home province of Van, in the east of the country.————–Early June: ISIS launches offensive in north and west of IraqAlready established in Anbar province since 2013, Islamic State in Iraq and Levant (ISIS) launched an offensive in the north and west of Iraq with the support of other Sunni armed groups at the start of June. These Jihadi forces quickly seized the cities of Mosul and Tikrit and then extended their influence over many other parts of Iraq and eastern Syria.In late June, ISIS changed its name to Islamic State and proclaimed an Islamic “caliphate” in the areas under its control. A US-led coalition of around 40 countries was created in August to contain the Jihadi advance.Al-Ahad TV cameraman Khaled Ali Hamada was killed on 16 June in Diyala, northeast of Baghdad, becoming the first media fatality since the start of the Jihadi offensive in the north and west of Iraq at the beginning of the month.The IS-led Jihadi forces quickly overran the headquarters of local TV stations, including Al-Mosuliya TV and Sama Al-Mosul in Mosul, and brought the news media in Nineveh, Anbar and Salahuddin provinces under their control. Beset by a political crisis, the Iraqi government meanwhile stepped up its own pressure on the media.

Aged 36 and the father of two children, Abady worked for Al Mowseliya TV, a local station, until IS seized control of Mosul in June 2014.Following a renewed attempt to leave Mosul, he was arrested at his home on 4 June by IS militants, who confiscated his mobile phone and computer. He was executed by firing squad after an IS court found him guilty of “leaking information” about IS to the national media.Reporters Without Borders asked the UN Security Council on 27 April to refer the situation in Iraq and Syria, especially crimes against journalists, to the International Criminal Court. Syria is currently the world’s most dangerous country for media personnel.——————–10.03.2015 – Two Iraqi photographers injured in Salahuddin provinceJournalists with various media survived an Islamic State ambush while accompanying a delegation of tribal chiefs and government officials on 5 March in Samarra, a city in Salahuddin province that is 80 km north of Baghdad.But two Iraqi photographers have sustained gunshot injuries while covering the offensive that the army launched against Islamic State in Salahuddin province on 4 March.The Iraqi Journalists’ Syndicate identified them as Ali Al Fahdawi, a photographer with Iraqi Media Network (which supports the Shiite-led government) and Haider Al-Awadi, a cameraman with the satellite TV station Al-Masar.Fahdawi was injured in Mkeshifah (to the north of Samarra) while Awadi was injured near Tikrit, the provincial capital. His injuries were described as serious. Both were transferred to a hospital in Baghdad.In a press release, the Iraqi Journalists’ Syndicate urged reporters at the front line to be “more prudent” and asked the armed forces to “do their duty well and make the maximum effort to protect journalists.”——————————–19.02.2015 – Cyber attacks on two independent news sitesTwo Syrian news websites were the victims of cyber-attacks last week that rendered them inaccessible for several hours. The targets were Syriahr.com, the site ofthe Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, on 11 February, and the online newspaper Orient News on 12 February.The hackers posted a black screen on the Syriahr.com home page accusing its staff of being British intelligence agents. Those who hacked into the Orient News site identified themselves as Islamic State militants and left a message threatening its journalists.As well as keeping the state media under close control, the Syrian government uses a cyber-army that floods social networks with messages in support of President Bashar Al-Assad. Operated by government militias and intelligence services (mukhabarat), this cyber-army also monitors and harasses online journalists.Syria is ranked 177th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.Read: News control – powerful weapon of war————–19.12.2014 – Premier drops previous administration’s cases against mediaIraqi Prime Minister Haider Al-Abadi announced yesterday that judicial proceedings initiated against news media and journalists under the previous administration are to be dropped, thereby signalling a break with the media policies of his predecessor, Nouri Al-Maliki.The announcement is good news for freedom of expression and information in Iraq. Abadi also called on the media to practice responsible journalism.When Maliki was prime minister, many government officials and politicians brought abusive proceedings against journalists and media to prevent them doing their job properly. Several journalists were prosecuted for reporting cases of abuse of authority and government corruption.—————10.12.2014 – Missile kills three Syrian TV journalists in Deraa provinceReporters Youssef Mahmoud El-Dous and Rami Adel Al-Asmi and cameraman Salem Abdul-Rahman Khalil were killed by a missile while covering fighting between government forces and rebels in the southern province of Deraa on 8 December. Orient TV journalists were approaching a battle zone in the village of Sheikh Miskeen when a missile hit their vehicle. Two died on the spot and the third died after being taken to hospital.—————10.12.2014 – Iraqi cameraman injured by gunfire in Salaheddin province Al-Ashraq TV cameraman Ahmed Hatem, 21, sustained serious gunshot injuries to the chest while covering clashes between Iraqi government forces and Islamic State fighters in the village of Ishaqi, in Salahuddin province, on 27 November. Hatem, who was travelling with government forces, was rushed to a hospital in Samara and then to a Baghdad hospital for urgent treatment.—————28.11.2014 – IS blocks mobile phones in MosulIslamic State members announced on their own Mosul-based radio station on 26 November that mobile phone networks have been blocked in the city. The aim is so stop the circulation of information about the Jihadi group’s positions in Mosul that could be of use to the international coalition that is fighting IS. The blocking naturally increased chaos in the city. Some regional media reported that the decision was taken for security reasons because of the temporary presence of Islamic State’s self-proclaimed caliph in Mosul.—————25.11.2014 – IS releases 12 journalistsThe Journalistic Freedoms Observatory (JFO) reports that 12 of the 14 journalists who were kidnapped a few weeks ago by IS were released on 21 November as a result of mediation by tribal leaders and other local figures. IS is now holding at least eight journalists hostage in Iraq and has been holding most of them since June.—————20.11.2014 – IS kidnaps 14 media workersAccording to JFO, IS kidnapped another 14 reporters, cameramen and TV engineers and technicians – most employed by Sama Mosul TV ­– in Mosul (in Nineveh province) in late October and early November. This follows the abduction by IS of nine journalists more than a month ago, six of whom it is still holding and three it released.JFO also reports that IS has issued a new list of names of 50 journalists and media workers who are personally threatened. This has obviously increased the already considerable alarm in media circles in Mosul.————–07.11.2014 – Press freedom laureate Mazen Darwish still in prisonThe trial of Syrian journalist and activist Mazen Darwish, winner of the 2012 Reporters Without Borders Press Freedom Prize, has been postponed yet again. Darwish, who ran the Damascus-based Syrian Centre for Media and Freedom of Expression, was arrested along with assistants Hani Al-Zitani and Hussein Ghareer and 12 other activists and supporters when air force intelligence officers raided the centre on 16 February 2012. Darwish, Zitani and Ghareer are still detained in Damascus under article 8 of the 2012 anti-terrorism law on charges of “publishing information about terrorist acts.”—————28.10.2014 – IS uses British hostage for fake TV reportIS released a new video of John Cantlie – a British journalist held hostage since November 2012 – on 27 October. It shows him doing a “report” from the Syrian town of Kobane, giving the Jihadi group’s take on the state of its battle with Kurdish fighters supported by the US-led international coalition. Reporters Without Borders voiced outrage at the video’s release. “Islamic State is exploiting Cantlie’s profession in a cowardly fashion to feed its propaganda machine,” secretary-general Christophe Deloire said.—————23.10.2014 – Areas controlled by IS are news “black holes”The media landscape is both Iraq and Syria is now desolate, with news media being closed, censored or self-censored and journalists being threatened, hunted down, arrested and sometimes murdered. Journalists are forced to cover events from a distance and indirectly in order to protect themselves. The result is partial and poor coverage of regions torn by fighting between Jihadi and government forces.“We condemn Islamic State’s criminal and fanatical persecution of journalists,” Reporters Without Borders programme director Lucie Morillon said. “It has resulted in the disappearance of independent media coverage in the areas it controls, which are now information black holes.”—————16.10.2014 – Confusion about journalist’s reported death in MosulContradictory information has been circulating about Mohanad Al-Aqidi, an Iraqi journalist believed held by IS in Mosul.

Required fields are marked * Pasadena Police Department has been awarded a $309.000.00 grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) for a year-long program of special enforcements and public awareness efforts to prevent traffic-related deaths and injuries. Pasadena Police Department will use the funding as part of the City’s ongoing commitment to keep roadways safe and improve the quality of life through both enforcement and education.Over the course of the past three years, col I i si ons have claimed 23 lives and resulted in 1982 injury crashes harming 2776 of our friends and neighbors” said Pasadena Police Chief Phil Sanchez. This OTS grant gives us additional tools to try and combat these alarming figures.After falling dramatically between 2006 and 2010, the number of persons killed and injured in traffic collisions has been slowly rising. Particularly alarming are recent increases in pedestrian and bicycle fatalities, the growing dangers of distracting technologies, and the emergence of drug-impaired driving as a major problem. This grant funding will provide opportunities to combat these and other devastating problems such as drunk driving, speeding, and crashes at intersections.“Overall, California’s roadways are among the safest in the nation,” said OTS Director Rhonda Craft. “But to meet future mobility, safety, and accessible transportation objectives, we have to reverse this recent trend in order to reach our common goal — zero deaths on our roadways. The Office of Traffic Safety and the Pasadena Police Department want to work with everyone to create a culture of traffic safety across Pasadena and the State.”Activities that the grant will fund include:• DUI checkpoints• DUI saturation patrols• Motorcycle safety enforcement• Distracted driving enforcement• Bicycle and pedestrian safety enforcement• Speed, red light, and stop sign enforcement• Specialized DUI and drugged driving training such as Standardized Field Sobriety Testing (SFST), Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement (ARIDE), and Drug Recognition Evaluator (DRE)Funding for this program is from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
