How I’d find the best UK shares to buy now to make a million

However, that task could be made easier by identifying the best UK shares to buy now.Clearly, different investors will have differing views on which companies are the best stocks to purchase. However, those businesses with competitive advantages, low share prices and industry growth potential could be among the top performers over the long run.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…Searching for sectors containing the best UK shares to buy nowThe best UK shares to buy now may not necessarily be found in industries that have clear long-term growth prospects. Certainly, sectors such as healthcare and online retail may contain attractive businesses with clear growth potential.However, other sectors that have struggled since the start of the coronavirus pandemic may be able to offer strong recovery prospects as the world economy returns to improved levels of growth.For example, sectors such as financial services and energy may enjoy significantly improved operating environments in the coming years. As confidence returns, consumers and businesses may increase their spending and investment.This could increase demand for a range of goods and services. These include petrol, loans and many other areas that have experienced low demand in recent months.Identifying stocks with competitive advantagesOf course, sectors with recovery prospects may experience further challenges in the short run. This could cause UK shares operating within them to post disappointing financial performances that puts pressure on their financial positions.As such, the best UK shares to buy now are likely to be those businesses with a large competitive advantage over their peers. They may be able to more easily overcome a period of weak growth.They may also be able to capitalise on long-term growth trends through increasing their market share, enjoying higher margin growth and delivering rising profitability. Ultimately, this may produce a rising stock price that makes them more attractive buying opportunities at the present time.Buying undervalued stocksWhere a company with long-term recovery potential and a competitive advantage trades at a low price, it could prove to be one of the best UK shares to buy now. A margin of safety may mean less risk in the short run. As well as scope for higher returns in the long run. Such companies may offer the chance to earn a higher return than the wider stock market.Even if an investor matches the returns of the wider market over the coming years, they could make a million. For example, assuming the same 9% annual total return as the FTSE 250 has posted in the last 20 years would turn a £500 monthly investment into a £1m portfolio in just over 30 years.By investing in the best UK shares today, it’s possible to beat that return and reduce the amount of time it takes to make a million.

Who should coach the Lions in 2017?

first_img IN CASE you’ve forgotten – this season has seemed long enough for most things to slip out of memory – the British & Irish Lions travelled to Australia last summer.As the first tour under the full gaze of social media (Twitter was very young in 2009), scrutiny was unprecedented. Just about every punter had picked their preferred XV by January and changed it umpteen times before July. Then they could vent their vitriol over Brian O’Driscoll’s omission for the final Test.Coverage sat somewhere between extensive and overkill. As such, don’t expect too much from me on the subject of 2017 until at least after next year’s World Cup. That’s a promise. One early suggestion is surely okay, though. So, here goes: I’d love Stuart Lancaster and Joe Schmidt to spearhead the Lions’ siege on New Zealand, with Graham Rowntree and Andy Farrell completing the coaching team.Moving forward: Stuart Lancaster’s England showed signs of progress in their Test series in NZGiven the events of this past weekend – Gatland’s Wales so nearly ambushing the Boks and Lancaster’s England helpless to prevent an All Blacks thrashing – this may seem oddly-timed. Gatland would be tough to leave out four years after leading a successful mission, but this is more an endorsement of his rivals’ qualities than the Kiwi’s shortcomings.First off, Lancaster should be rewarded for England’s recent efforts in New Zealand. Shorn of first-choice players, an intrepid side so nearly ransacked Eden Park. That first-Test performance took a fabulous amount of graft, but the key element was a cast-iron conviction that had filtered down from the top. Frankly, England could easily have headed to Hamilton 2-0 up in the series.Seemingly innocuous mistakes – a weak ruck clear-out, a pass behind a runner, lazy support lines – are what kill you against the All Blacks. This is where Schmidt comes in. Challenging players to hone their skills, his fundamental currencies are diligence and discipline.In nine games under the former Auckland Blues assistant coach since last autumn, Ireland have conceded 63 penalties at an average of seven per 80 minutes. Those are remarkable statistics. By contrast, Richie McCaw & Co have been pinged 95 times in their last nine matches stretching back to the 38-27 defeat of South Africa in Johannesburg… not that referees seem to think those numbers merit yellow cards. Meow.Anyway, such control would stand the Lions in good stead. This month, a trio of sin-binnings meant England had 14 men for half an hour over the series. Steve Hansen’s men went over for three pivotal tries and 25 points. The devil is in the detail.High standards: Joe Schmidt, here with fly-half Johnny Sexton, guided Ireland to a Six Nations titleIn short, Lancaster and Schmidt are a meticulous duo. And, if you think the notion of two former schoolteachers overseeing the trip appears slightly square, look no further than Messrs Rowntree and Farrell – two of the most charismatic figures in rugby who can take care of technicalities up front, defensive systems and the required mindset. Wizards in Oz: Lions fans celebrate at the final whistle in Sydney last year LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Those four varied personalities each know exactly what it will take to garner a second consecutive series triumph. As far as Gatland goes, one typically obdurate comment during the Six Nations is difficult to overlook. When Ireland handed Wales a Dublin drubbing back in February, he was asked whether Plan B was ever considered. His response? “We didn’t even execute Plan A well enough.”Now, stubbornness is an admirable trait at times. Gatland’s loyalty in selection certainly helped the Lions in their Sydney decider last year. It also allowed the same side – Adam Jones and Aaron Shingler notwithstanding – to right some wrongs in Nelspruit on Saturday.That said, it is hard to get away from the fact that Wales’ tactics look stale. South Africa won’t be as bad as they were this weekend for a long time and one-out runners won’t cut it against the All Blacks over three fixtures. Lancaster and Schmidt offer a mix of ambition and painstaking accuracy alongside crucial adaptability.Of course there is plenty of water to run under the bridge before 2017 and the concept of two head coaches forming an alliance might be a non-starter, but it’s a combination that would be fascinating to see.Leading man: will Wales lock Alun Wyn Jones lead the Lions against the All Blacks in 2017?A Lions team to beat the All Blacks in 2017The average age of the All Blacks side that battered England on Saturday was just over 27. The squad below has an average age of a fraction under 28, and could be pushed lower depending on the development of Maro Itoje, Nick Tompkins, Garry Ringrose and Jonny Gray among others. It should be said that Joe Launchbury and Alex Cuthbert are unlucky.Fifteen of the 23 possess Lions experience. There is dynamism, skill and sheer brawn throughout the forwards, with enough guile, power and pace both to trouble New Zealand out wide and shackle the likes of Julian Savea. Roll on off-season, and let the debate begin.center_img Starting XV: Leigh Halfpenny (Wales); Marland Yarde (England),

Según un comunicado de prensa, la vigilia incluyó esta vez a miembros de IRATE & First Friends, Pax Christi NJ, Viento del Espíritu [Wind of the Spirit], el [capítulo] de Newark del Programa de Derechos del Inmigrante del Comité de Servicios de Amigos Americanos [American Friends Service Committee Immigrant Rights Program-Newark] y los Defensores de los Inmigrantes Detenidos de NJ [NJ Advocates for Immigrant Detainees] así como detenidos recién liberados y amigos y familiares de inmigrantes que se encuentran actualmente detenidos.Las actividades del día consistieron en una serie de vigilias tituladas “Se acabo el silencio. ¡Que despierte la justicia!” que buscaban el arrepentimiento del pecado de las detenciones de inmigración “y [denunciaban] el silencio de la comunidad que permite que las muertes de personas detenidas pasen inadvertidas y que hace aceptable lucrar con la separación de las familias y con la explotación de miles de inmigrantes detenidos en condiciones que los ponen en peligro de sufrir perjuicios psicológicos y físicos”, decía el comunicado.Junto a Jefferts Schori se encontraban Thomas A. Donato, obispo auxiliar de la diócesis catolicorromana de Newark, así como clérigos judíos y musulmanes.Las otras vigilias de Nueva Jersey tuvieron lugar en el parque municipal de Hackensack frente al Tribunal del Condado de Bergen; en el Registro Civil de Newark y, más tarde, en el Edificio Delaney en el complejo carcelario del Condado de Essex, frente al Centro Correccional del Condado de Hudson en South Kerney y en el Centro de Detención de Elizabeth.El día debió culminar con la vigilia anual en el Centro de Detención de Elizabeth, una instalación con fines de lucro administrada por la Corporación de Correccionales de América (CCA) donde Inmigración federal y la agencia de las Autoridades de Aduana comenzaron a encarcelar a inmigrantes hace casi dos décadas, decía el comunicado. Éste fue el 17º. año que tiene lugar una vigilia en Elizabeth.“Venimos a lamentar la injusticia de que son víctimas nuestros hermanos y hermanas que están siendo severamente castigados y a clamar a Dios”, dijo Gene Squeo, miembro de la junta directiva de Pax Christi NJ, en el comunicado de prensa, en el que explicaba porque era apropiado e importante reunirse el Miércoles de Ceniza. “Sabemos que Dios escucha el clamor de los pobres, pero sabemos también que los detenidos en Nueva Jersey siguen clamando y nuestros gobiernos de los condados lucran con su dolor y nuestra comunidad aún no los oye”.Los gobiernos locales con frecuencia obtienen ingresos por albergar detenidos federales en sus instalaciones.Lorna Henkel, presidenta de la junta de fideicomisarios de IRATE & First Friends dijo que “aunque los políticos en Washington parecen comprometidos con una amplia reforma migratoria, no vemos señales de que el gobierno federal reducirá su dependencia de un sistema inhumano y económicamente ruinoso, y no hay ningún incentivo para los gobiernos locales de Nueva Jersey de poner el bienestar de los inmigrantes detenidos y de sus familias por encima de los ingresos que [su detención] genera”.Los organizadores dijeron que en el comunicado que la historia de [los centros] de detención de inmigración en Nueva Jersey incluía “muertes escandalosas, un clima de ocultación en el que no existen normas de custodia aplicables y ninguna auténtica supervisión”.“Separan a las familias, abusan de las personas y en ocasiones hasta mueren mientras están detenidos”, dijo Diana Mejía, cofundadora de Wind of the Spirit. “Nos sentimos moralmente obligados a denunciar esto, y si no podemos abolir la masiva detención de inmigrantes debemos establecer un medio en que los miembros de la comunidad puedan supervisar las condiciones y en que se le ponga fin al silencio y a la ocultación”.Otros de los copatrocinadores de las vigilias fueron Casa Esperanza, las Hermanas Felicianas de Norteamérica; la Oficina de Paz, Justicia e Integridad Ecológica de la Hermanas de la Caridad de Nueva Jersey; El Centro de Servicio Social de San José; la Coalición de Elizabeth para Albergar a los Desamparados, CEUS; la Coalición pro el DREAM Act de NJ; Anakbayan-USA; el Programa de Justicia Social de la Universidad de San Pedro [St. Peter’s University]; la Red del Nordeste de Solidaridad con Haití; las Hermanas de San José de Chestnut Hill y la Coalición pro Derecho de los Inmigrantes del Condado de Monmouth.— Traducción de Vicente Echerri.

Algunos opositores han dicho que “hacen falta hechos y no palabras”.Según informes de la prensa de Caracas, el presidente Nicolás Maduro está dando un importante giro en cuanto a la filosofía de su gobierno. Agobiado por la inflación galopante y la escasez de alimento, medicinas y otros insumos, se está olvidando del chavismo y está fomentando un tipo de gobierno “quasi capitalista” y se está olvidando del “Socialismo del Siglo XXI”. Algunos piensan que el nuevo modelo pudiera ser similar al que impera en China. Sin embargo, la invitación a un experto cubano para que asesore al gobierno sobre asuntos económicos parece un riesgo de amplias proporciones. “Cuba está en peor situación que nosotros”, dice un venezolano que vivió en la isla caribeña.Sebastián Rodríguez Gómez, prominente pastor evangélico español ha fallecido en España a la edad de 85 años.

Location. This operation is located on “block E2” of the Z.A.C. Monges Croix-du-Sud designed by Bruno Fortier and Michel Desvignes in Cornebarrieu, a village on the northern outskirts of Toulouse. This urbanization enjoys a landscape where valleys, woods, hedgerows, views towards the old village have been preserved in PAZ, while only the wooded hillside of the Coulommiers road separates Cornebarrieu from the major airport sites of Blagnac.Save this picture!© Antoine Guilhem DucléonThis collective of 45 housing units is located on a platform created in the slope of the natural land facing due east. Like the other platforms provided for in P.A.Z, it is surrounded by a shrub table, a sort of base for the building while reinforcing the effect of an open balcony on the large landscape sometimes magically animated at the back by the Pyrenees.Save this picture!© Antoine Guilhem DucléonProgram And Architectural Treatment. The building is all in wood. It brings together the 45 apartments spread over 3 levels and in the basement a parking lot with 47 spaces. Known as “the milestone” because of its dominant position, at the confluence of the “Parkway” of the ZAC and the North alley, it plays the role of a ball joint on the urban level. Its particular geometry with its “folded” shape, relates to the main directions given by the large planted access roads of the ZAC.Save this picture!© Antoine Guilhem DucléonSave this picture!Site PlanSave this picture!© Antoine Guilhem DucléonEast Side / West Side, A Double Face. The “Jalon” unfolds and offers itself to the landscape on the east side. Its architectural treatment in horizontal layers lowers its height, reinforces its directions and creates a dynamic that resonates with the surrounding landscape. From the parkway, depending on the points or angles of view, totally different perceptions of this building appear, fluid fragments or continuities up to the North and South gables which oppose their frontality.Save this picture!© Antoine Guilhem DucléonOn the west side, it folds up to form with the foliage of the “Talabot path” a more intimate space, punctuated at the entrance by a pergola housing other parking lots. The facade expression plays more on verticality. Hollow and solid alternate in the upper levels, received on the continuous horizontal of the awning of the ground floor. This houses the glass airlocks of halls A and B giving access to the upper floors. This backyard gives direct access to the apartments on the ground floor West. A central passage between the north and south wings opens onto the platform and its unobstructed view. It leads to the RDC Est accommodation.Save this picture!© Antoine Guilhem DucléonThe exercise for us was to develop this particular shape from the thickness of the facade, made up of the exterior spaces as extensions of the housing; Extremely standard accommodation, most of which are small in size, suitable for a more modest clientele, the Z.A.C also offering a majority of individual T4 accommodation.Save this picture!© Antoine Guilhem DucléonSave this picture!© Antoine Guilhem DucléonEach level offers a different relationship to the outside: terraces on the ground floor, loggias on the ground floor, balconies on the ground floor. The large projection of the first floor eliminates the high and low views towards the ground floor terraces and the balconies of the 2nd floor. These thicknesses of the facade formulate the architecture of this building. Metal structures entirely suspend the loggias and balconies of the 2 upper levels, freeing up the covered space on the ground floor which thus completely detaches the stratum formed by the rhythm of the breezes seen from the loggias of the R + 1.Save this picture!© Antoine Guilhem DucléonThe proposal to Bouygues Immobilier to create this BBC complex with a wooden frame and the shape taken by the building, allowed us to escape the model of the “barre” collective. Woodwork and volumetry, an elongated low-rise template, helps to make this apartment building surrounded by nature stand out.Save this picture!© Antoine Guilhem DucléonMaterials. On the entire ground floor and at the bottom of the western loggias, the wood cladding is treated with 3-ply Douglas wood panels. The facades of the upper levels are clad in full height Douglas wood slats, distinguishing them from the ground floor. The exterior joinery is in larch wood, full height and decorated with hinged shutters.Save this picture!© Antoine Guilhem DucléonGlass angles enrich the interior of the accommodation and its relation to the exterior. The breezes seen from the R + 1 loggias are in laminated Douglas wood. The attic in Douglas wood cleats on a metal frame conceals the sensors and air renewal units.

Union locals adopt pro-BDS stance to aid Palestine

first_imgOn Sept. 5, 2014, a group of Palestinian popular organizations called on people around the world to step up the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement to economically weaken and isolate the apartheid state of Israel.The message, signed by over a dozen Palestinian workers’ organizations, included a call for “Working within trade unions to raise awareness about Israel’s regime of oppression and engaging in effective BDS measures such as stopping the handling of Israeli goods, divesting trade union funds from Israel and complicit companies, and boycotting complicit Israeli trade unions.” ­(bdsmovement.net)A Palestinan flag on a school bus is a symbol of the Bus Drivers Union solidarity with Palestine. When Veolia Corporation attacked their union, the bus drivers publicized Veolia’s role in illegal Israeli settlements in the West Bank.U.S. unions, some of which backed the movement to defeat apartheid in South Africa, have largely ignored this plea for solidarity. “An injury to one is an injury to all” seems to have been forgotten when it comes to opposing the racist Zionist state.Nevertheless, the BDS movement just got a shot in the arm. Units of two United Auto Workers locals, representing graduate student teachers at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst and New York University, have endorsed BDS.From April 12 through April 14, the University of Massachusetts Graduate Employee Organization unit of Local 2322, the largest unit of the amalgamated local, conducted a vote of its 2,000 members. Over 95 percent supported a resolution to “join the global movement for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions.” In a four-day election ending April 22, over 65 percent of the 2,000 members of the Graduate Student Organizing Committee-UAW Local 2110 at New York University followed suit.Denver“We know that our principled stand will be criticized, scrutinized and challenged,” said GEO co-chair Santiago Vidales. “But we know that we are building a movement for liberation. The liberation of Palestinian people is inherently connected to our own.” (geouaw.org)Struggle over BDSIn 2014, UAW Local 2865, which represents graduate student employees in the University of California system, passed a resolution supporting BDS. A right-wing minority in this local then appealed the membership’s majority vote to the union’s International Executive Board under the UAW’s internal appeal process.The IEB ruled in favor of the minority, saying that the resolution would cause a loss of jobs at UAW-represented military contractors. Local 2865 responded by appealing the IEB’s ruling. A decision is expected this year.Over 20 organizations have issued statements or passed resolutions in support of Local 2865. Among them are UAW Local 4121 at the University of Washington, the Palestine Solidarity Collective in Syracuse, N.Y., and the rank-and-file group Autoworker Caravan.The United Electrical workers passed a resolution at its 53rd national convention last August supporting BDS and calling for an end to U.S. aid to Israel.In October, an Israeli law firm filed a charge against the UE, claiming that its support for BDS constituted a secondary boycott. This charge attempts to use the viciously anti-labor Taft-Hartley Act, which prohibits unions from targeting third parties not directly involved in a labor dispute. Such a “third party” might be a store that sells products made by scabs. In January, the National Labor Relations Board dismissed the charge.One union that has supported Palestine for decades is the Boston School Bus Drivers Union, United Steelworkers Local 8751. Recently the local passed a resolution opposing state legislation attacking the BDS movement.Many unions around the world, including Unite the Union in Britain and the Congress of South African Trade Unions, are supporting BDS. It is time for the U.S. labor movement to stand with Palestine and reject Israeli apartheid.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
