2 UK shares I’d buy in my Stocks and Shares ISA in March

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997”  UK share prices continue to struggle for grip as we move towards March. Stock values have broadly reversed, in fact, as fears over what Covid-19 mutations mean for the effectiveness of vaccine rollouts have increased.On top of this, concerns over escalating inflation have damaged appetite for UK shares in recent hours. As IG Group has commented: “With commodities on the rise, we have yet another reminder of the potential rise in inflation that many believe could bring an earlier end to the current loose monetary policy environment.”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…Stock investors like me need to remain vigilant. The economic recovery could be bumpy in many, if not all, parts of the globe. And this could have huge implications for corporate earnings. But I don’t think there’s any need to pull up the drawbridge and stop investing entirely.There are still many UK shares I think will deliver big profits over the next couple of years, whatever happens. Here are a couple I’d buy for my own Stocks and Shares ISA in March.A UK tech share on my wishlistI think grabbing a slice of the cybersecurity space is a good idea today as online attacks soar. A report from software giant VMware last June illustrated how the problem has worsened in recent years. A whopping 90% of security professionals it surveyed said they had seen an increase in the volume of attacks in the prior 12 months. As a consequence, 96% of those quizzed said they planned to increase budgets to fight such threats.Cyber attacks have grown significantly in both number and sophistication as the public health emergency has progressed. And this bodes well for UK shares like NCC Group (LSE: NCC). This particular IT services provider helps businesses identify weaknesses in their systems. And it hunts and fights threats when they come along.City analysts expect earnings at NCC to edge 4% higher this fiscal year (to May 2021). This leaves the company trading on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 33 times. High multiples aren’t rare when it comes to UK tech shares. But I’m aware that elevated valuations can lead to sharp share price drops if trading conditions begin to worsen.A top FTSE 100 stockI would also happily buy UK financial services share Hargreaves Lansdown (LSE: HL) in my ISA right now. I expect activity on its trading platforms to remain robust as low Bank of England interest rates force Britons to search for better returns elsewhere. A report by Moneyfacts shows how rates on Cash ISAs for instance have plummeted to fresh record lows recently.It’s probable that Hargreaves Lansdown might suffer if the UK economic recovery clicks along at an impressive pace. This might cause the Bank of England to raise its base rate quicker than currently expected and cause individuals to flock back to traditional lower-risk savings products. I still think the FTSE 100 share is an attractive stock to buy today though. City brokers reckon annual earnings here will rise 2% this financial year (to June 2021). This leaves it trading on a forward P/E ratio of 26 times.

Danny Cipriani pleads guilty to nightclub assault in Jersey

first_imgThree other charges of larceny, assault on police and being disorderly on licensed premises were dropped.Gloucester Rugby said in a statement that they were “very aware of an incident involving Danny Cipriani in the early hours of Wednesday morning following an incident at a St Helier nightclub.”His new club will make a further announcement on the situation in “due course.”Related: The alcohol issues some elite players battleCipriani was in Jersey with his Gloucester team-mates as part of their pre-season preparations. The fly-half had moved to the club over the summer, having left Wasps for the second time in his career. Gloucester’s new star signing was arrested at the venue in St Helier in the early hours of Wednesday. The 30-year old fly-half appeared at Jersey Magistrates’ Court on earlier today.

Education workers win strike

first_imgStrong, spirited strike solidarity between professors, adjuncts and students has proven to be unbeatable. Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) officials must have come to that conclusion before they signed off on a tentative agreement with the Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties on Oct. 21 after a three-day strike.The state had proposed 249 changes to the contract with APSCUF members at universities in West Chester, East Stroudsburg, Bloomsburg, California, Cheyney, Clarion, Edinboro, Indiana, Kutztown, Lock Haven, Mansfield, Millersville, Shippensburg and Slippery Rock. In September, the union filed an unfair labor practice, complaining that state officials were not negotiating “in good faith” over the many demands. (wdadradio.com, Sept. 29)“We fought back virtually every one of [the contract changes],” said APSCUF President Kenneth Mash in announcing the settlement. “And the amount of love and respect throughout this from our students, you can’t pay for that with money.” (New York Times, Oct. 21)The first strike in the 34-year history of the state-supported university system was marked by student walkouts by hundreds of students at 11 a.m. on Oct. 19. Student marches, organized by the PASSHE Student Power Network (SPN), joined up with their professors and adjuncts on picket lines because “we all understood what the PASSHE administration was pushing, which were bureaucratic, cowardly measures that really sought to change the fabric of our state system education,” said West Chester University student Sabina Sisterovich.“The student turnout was also our response to a growing sentiment amongst higher-ups that young people are complacent and uninformed,” Sisterovich continued. “I think we showed that we are quite the opposite. We won’t make room on our campus for destructive, negligent and profit fueled changes, and neither will our professors.”WCU, with 17,000 students, is the largest campus in the state system totaling 105,000. Students there in SPN and SDS organized a caravan on the second day to Harrisburg, Pa., to confront PASSHE Chancellor Frank T. Brogan.Brogan had told a Philadelphia House committee last spring that PASSHE has about the same funding as it did in 1997, with about 13,000 more students. In the past eight years, 900 staff positions have been cut. (theslateonline.com, April 18)On Oct 21, WCU picketers marched to nearby Westchester to confront Philadelphia Gov. Tom Wolf, a member of the system’s board of governors. The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that he was “extremely disappointed” in the strike and warned of detrimental effects on the system for years to come, claiming the system has lost 12 percent of its enrollment since 2010 and faces a $10 million deficit. (Philly.com, Oct 19)When Sisterovich asked the governor to join the picket line, Wolf replied, “You should really get back to class.”A big winAccording to PASSHE spokesperson Kenn Marshall, the tentative agreement includes raises and measures to save on health care costs. (New York Times, Oct. 21) While all the details for the agreement have not been made public yet, Ben Kuebrich, WCU professor on line for tenure, explained that he and everyone he’s talked to “feel good about the results — it’s a big win!”Instead of new rules demanded by PASSHE that would have amounted to a 20 percent pay cut, adjuncts reportedly will receive a raise of 1 percent each year.Kuebrich said the 59-hour strike made the union stronger because union members at each of the 14 campuses now feel a new sense of solidarity with each other.Among factors on why the strike was so effective is the inclusion of adjuncts alongside tenured professors in APSCUF. This inclusion is a major reason why the starting salary for WCU adjuncts is $46,610 (tinyurl.com/PASSHE-APSCUF), significantly over the national average salary of $27,800 for adjuncts at most U.S. universities. (glassdoor.com)WCU is a teaching college, not a research institution, so students who hope to become teachers themselves someday felt an unequivocal comradeship with their striking professors.To the beat of drums, triangles, banjos and other musical instruments, picket lines at 10 sites on the WCU campus as well as a Philadelphia Center City location featured chants such as “Support public ed! You heard what we said!” and “Hey hey, ho ho! David Brogan has got to go!”Picket lines were immediately ended as news of the tentative three-year agreement was relayed to picket captains. The pact, which would run retroactively from the June 30, 2015, end of the previous contract through June 30, 2018, requires the approval of the PASSHE Board of Governors in Harrisburg. A legislative assembly of APSCUF members must also approve the new contract before its 5,500 members can vote on it. The ratification process could take up to six weeks.The Pennsylvania faculty strike may be a harbinger of more labor struggles at other U.S. university campuses.In August, the National Labor Relations Board ruled that graduate students who teach at private universities are employees with full rights to join unions, a sweeping decision that paves the way for student unionization on campuses nationwide. (Wall Street Journal, Aug. 23)And at Harvard University, dining hall workers have been striking since early October. That strike is the first by Harvard employees since 1983 and the first ever during the academic year.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Fungicides Could Bring in Better 2021 Yields

first_imgAudio Playerhttps://hoosieragtoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/03/Delaro-Complete-ready-for-2021.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Yield improvements in fungicide-treated fields versus untreated fields were significant last year in reports coming into HAT. We received many reports of yield increases even beyond what company language was touting.Fungicide benefits are numerous, but Ray Lello at Bayer says, “When we think about fungicides, generally speaking I think it’s important that we lead with disease control, and that disease activity that we need to see from a product like Delaro or our just-approved Delaro Complete. These chemistries as a formulation need to work together really well in the jug, but they also need to have stand alone activity on those diseases. That includes tar spot, gray leaf spot, northern corn leaf blight, rusts in corn, frogeye leaf spot in soybeans, white mold, brown spot.”Bayer’s Delaro has provided better plant health on top of the good disease control. Lello says Delaro Complete can help with the increasing problem of disease resistance with the addition of a third mode of action, an SDHI.“What that’s really going to help with is to ensure that that disease resistance we’re seeing is not going to spread any faster than we want it to or at all if we can,” he explained. “It also helps to deliver incremental disease control on gray leaf spot, which is a core disease in Indiana on corn, and also an incremental activity on white mold in soybeans. So, fundamentally overlapping modes of action act as a stand alone really well, but also work really well together in the tank or in the jug, it’s what makes those formulations different.”Those three modes of action to control major corn and soybean diseases are delivering yield improvements over untreated fields of more than 14 bushels on corn and 5 bushels on soybeans. Indiana side by side results we learned of last fall were even better than that, a seemingly robust return on investment.“We pride ourselves at Bayer in delivering products that have a really strong price to value,” Lello told HAT. “I think that is core and critical to the fungicide market.”Delaro Complete is approved for use in Indiana this year, an approval Bayer was anxious to receive.“That would be an understatement. When we think about where corn and soybean high-yielding crops are growing, Indiana is right in the heart of that.”More details are available at the Bayer website.

Greater Than Rubies comes to TCU

first_imgFacebook Linkedin Shelby Kitsonhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/shelby-kitson/ printMore than a hundred women filled the Brown-Lupton University Union Ballroom last week to learn how to transform their closet and wardrobe in a more professional manner.TCU Panhellenic hosted Caitlin Skidmore, the founder of Greater Than Rubies, to explain to students how and why she stopped shopping for a year.“The hardest part was getting started,” Skidmore said. “However, I was able to make 365 different and new outfits with the clothes I already had in my closet.”Greater Than Rubies started as a blog written by Skidmore. She now helps women all over the world during events, consultations, online style guides and through her website.“I can teach women how to buy top brand items at such a cheap price,” Skidmore said. “It is my job to help women save money and save time.”(Video footage by: Shelby Kitson Edited by: Riley Knight)She told the audience the stores she shops at for most of her clothes are from the second hand store, Clothes Mentor. Skidmore also offered to go to Clothes Mentor with any of the girls and help them pick out new outfits.She also showed the women how to make 14 different outfits with only eight clothing items: a white blouse, tan heels, a black jacket, pink pants, a green floral skirt, a tan tank top, cardigan and a black dress.“I was impressed to see how many different outfits she was able to make with barely any clothes,” first-year student Kyle Cooney said. “[It] inspired me to try this when I go home.”Skidmore gave tips on how to dress professional, business casual and for the different seasons and weather climates.A member of the audience asked Skidmore what to wear for an interview during a hot summer day in Texas.“It is necessary to wear a jacket or blazer because it is important to stay professional,” Skidmore said. “Now, some stores sell lightweight jackets that still look polished, but you could always take off the jacket in the car to stay cool and put it on right before you walk through the office doors.”Cooney said she has yet to own professional-style clothes that she actually likes to wear.“I really need to go shopping and look for the clothes that Caitlin used as examples,” she said. “I think my first purchase is going to be the lightweight jacket because it would be perfect for a summer internship or job.”After the hour-long event, students were given Skidmore’s personal phone number and email for tips and advice.“I encourage you all to clean out your closet because you will realize there are so many options in there you never realized you had,” she said. “If you do not know what to get rid of or what to buy, shoot me a picture of it and I will give you feedback.” Fraternity and Sorority Life hires seven new hall directors to enhance safety, promote community Shelby Kitson is a senior journalism student at Texas Christian University.

Widespread internet outages hit northeast U.S.

first_img TAGS  Pinterest Widespread internet outages hit northeast U.S. WhatsApp Previous articleAP sources: Phillies, Realmuto agree on $115.5 million dealNext articleFidelity lance des allocations de portefeuille en ETF sur la NEO Bourse Digital AIM Web Support Facebook Local NewsBusinessUS News Pinterestcenter_img Twitter Facebook Internet users across the northeast U.S. experienced widespread outages for several hours Tuesday, interrupting work and school because of an unspecified Verizon network issue. “An internet issue impacting the quality of our Fios service throughout the Northeast has been resolved,” said spokesman Rich Young in an emailed statement Tuesday afternoon. He said service levels “are returning to normal” and the company is investigating what happened. The service interruptions were unrelated to a cut fiber in Brooklyn, New York, which caused problems for people in the area. There are about 6.5 million Fios internet customers. People posting on Twitter reported having issues connecting with various online services in the region stretching from Washington, D.C., to Boston. That densely populated area includes key U.S. government services as well as major financial companies such as Fidelity Investments. Disruptions to internet services are always a hassle, but have become even more excruciating as the pandemic forces millions of people to work from home and students to attend school remotely. Diana Gaspar’s daughter in New York couldn’t connect to her online classroom because their home internet was spotty for a couple of hours in the afternoon, although her daughter was able to log in with Gaspar’s phone. “We didn’t see it as a major issue,” Gaspar said. “The only inconvenience was me not having my phone.” For the Fairfax County Public Schools in the Washington, D.C., suburbs, teachers and students found workarounds, such as switching to another instruction platform if one wasn’t working, said spokeswoman Lucy Caldwell. When her third-grade daughter’s teacher couldn’t log on to the education software they were using, a gym teacher came on to tell kids to do independent learning instead, said Fairfax parent Tracy Compton. “My daughter came to me and I had to stop working and I had to work with her to do the assignment,” Compton said, nothing that frustrating tech issues are not unusual with remote learning. At Galvin Middle School in Wakefield, Massachusetts, a suburb north of Boston, teachers sent students pen-and-paper assignments if there were internet problems, said Trish Dellanno, reached at the school by phone. “Teachers have been able to keep on moving. They’re going old school.” The outage affected internet and cloud providers as well as major sites such as Google and Facebook. Amazon, whose web services division powers a wide ranges of online services, indicated its network wasn’t the cause of the problem and that connectivity issues for its Amazon Web Services customers were resolved around 12:45 p.m., after an hour and a half. Google said it also had not found issues with its own services and was investigating. The East Coast outages began at 11:25 a.m. local time and recovery began at 12:37 p.m, according to Doug Madory, director of internet analysis at Kentik, a network monitoring company. He reported a 12% drop in traffic volume to Verizon. Madory said he did not yet know if other carriers were impacted. Comcast, another major internet service provider, said it had not observed problems with its network Tuesday. AT&T said it does not supply home internet in the northeast and customers were not affected. Cary Wiedemann, a network engineer who had connectivity problems at his home in Northern Virginia, said that some online services could have been disrupted even if your home internet still worked, if the issue was with the backbone of Verizon’s network. “If Outlook works but YouTube doesn’t, whose fault is it? Verizon’s fault. But that’s not obvious from the onset,” he said. ——— This story has been revised to correct the spelling of the network monitoring company Kentik. It has also been updated to correct the name of the Verizon spokesman. It’s Rich Young, not Jim Greer. Twitter WhatsApp By Digital AIM Web Support – January 26, 2021 last_img read more
