2 of my favourite UK shares to buy for 2021. Could they TREBLE in value during the new bull market?

first_img There’s clearly a lot for UK share investors to consider for 2021. The emergence of a second strain of Covid-19 is somewhere near the top of the list. It’s prompting a spike in infection rates and governments are scrambling to limit travel to keep a lid on things.On top of this, the threat of Brexit disruption from January 1 casts a pall over the outlook for the UK economy in the long term and beyond. Then you’ve got signs that major economic powerhouses from North America to Asia, Europe to Australia are prepared to engage in fresh rounds of trade wars in 2021. Remember that these two issues were damaging global economic growth — and by extension, UK share prices — long before the Covid-19 crisis came into view.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…These problems aren’t causing me to run for the hills though. I believe that UK share markets will continue to generate terrific returns for long-term investors like me. There are several reasons why I think global stock markets will rocket again like they did following the 2008 banking crisis. And those who invest in stocks at today’s low prices can seriously supercharge the profits they make over the next decade.2 UK shares to buy in 2021The FTSE 100 rose 105% in value between 2009 and 2018. The FTSE 250, meanwhile, more than trebled over the same period. There are many top-quality UK shares I think could enjoy similarly mighty ascents during the 2020s. Here are two that I’d happily buy for my own Stocks and Shares ISA.#1: Vistry GroupThings could get a tad tricky for housebuilders like Vistry Group (LSE: VTY) in 2021. The stamp duty holiday that has underpinned stunning house price growth in recent months is currently scheduled to be pulled in March. The prospect of rising unemployment next year also weighs on the demand outlook.However, these issues wouldn’t put me off. Three significant factors should keep homebuyer interest well on the boil during the 2020s — low interest rates; massive government support through Help to Buy; and a colossal shortage of new homes.These issues helped Vistry’s share price soar more than 250% in the 10 years to 2020. And it’ll soar again during this new decade too, I believe. This UK share trades on a rock-bottom price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 8 times for 2021. The housebuilder sports a monster 4.2% dividend yield too. This is one top buy for the new decade.#2: Clipper LogisticsI believe Clipper Logistics is another great way to get rich with bricks and mortar in the 2020s. I’ve even put my money where my mouth is and bought this UK share in my own ISA. This company provides logistics spaces and services to major blue-chip companies like ASOS, L’Oréal and Morrisons. It’s in the right place to fully exploit the e-commerce explosion.This UK share also provides terrific value on paper. It carries a forward price-to-earnings growth (PEG) ratio of 0.6 for this fiscal year (to April 2021). The Clipper Logistics share price has soared 625% during the past 10 years.

Orange County Budget Process Has Already Begun

first_img It s not just Orange, the budget process lasts all year long in pretty much every county. The process begins in January, when the budget office updates long-range plans, and gathers information about what line items will change in the upcoming year. The process ends in December, when the estimated (budgeted) reserve has to be adjusted to match the actual. In between, there is enough work to keep a small staff busy all year long. If you ever read about an “unexpected” shortfall in a county budget, that means there was some kind of mistake. The budget office can’t always prevent shortfalls, but they should always be able to predict them.

Living in Orlando, we are accustomed to theme parks: Disney, Universal, Sea World, even Legoland and Gator Land. KSC is anything but a theme park. Upon arrival, visitors are greeted with John F. Kennedy’s 1962 statement: “The eyes of the world now look into space, to the moon and to the planets beyond, and we have vowed that we shall not see it governed by a hostile flag of conquest, by but by a banner of freedom and peace.”The world today is not accustomed to looking up to the sky with a sense of hope, but rather we “look out” at the world with a sense of resignation, perhaps even despair. All too often, we walk through life with a sense of skewed normality: the quest for power is accepted as normal, the quest for profits is accepted as normal, the quest to give priority to self-interest is accepted as normal. In time, normality stands in the way of hope.Derived from the Latin “mundus” meaning world, the word “mundane” carries the meaning of routine and ordinary. We convey this sense when we speak of being down-to-earth, of having earthly possessions, and with such sayings as ‘there’s no way on earth.’ In JFK’s speech calling for landing on the moon by the end of the decade, he called for us to reach the stars constructively. We must fill space not with weapons of mass destruction, but with instruments of knowledge and understanding.Our challenge is to shift our perspective from earth to the heavens, from mundanity to hope, from what is to what ought to be. Our goal is for humanity to work together as one team, respecting individual differences in race, ethnicity, religion, gender orientation and identity, and socio-economic status.  As the Talmudic Sages teach: We might not be able to accomplish the goal, but each of us must do our part to bring the world one step closer to the way it needs to be. We can only take those steps when we extend our hands to others and walk together with head held high towards the brightness of tomorrow.Look at the night sky and feel a sense of future and hope. We need to shift our focus from making history to embracing destiny. With the help of the heavens, we WILL find tomorrow’s brightness, as difficult as today’s path might be.

All that is needed for a boxing workout is a pair of gloves, hand wraps, and a 100-pound heavy bag.The general manager at Title Boxing’s Downtown Fort Worth location, Barry Foval, said that the workout is for anyone and Title even starts boxers as young as eight.During an hour boxing class at Title the average calorie burn is 750 but with an extra push the burn rate can be as high as 1200.Foval said the workout is about how much you put into it and that you learn as you go.Unlike other workouts, after boxing your body is on a gradual decline and thus continues to burn calories.“For the next 30 minutes to an hour, you’re still burning a decent amount of calories,” Foval said. “But as you come down it’s less and less.”Not only does boxing result in a high calorie burn–it also conditions the entire body, especially the core.Foval said heavy bag workouts are great for conditioning and work the entire body.While boxing is a great physical workout, it is also an incredible mental workout.In fact, Foval said that recent studies have actually shown that boxing is one of the best workouts for people with Alzheimer’s as it works their minds to remember the punch combinations.Another mental benefit of boxing is that it relieves stress.“It’s a really good way to relieve stress,” a boxer at Title, Claire Powell, said. “I think just being able to take all your anxiety or stress out on the bag.”Boxing is a productive way to get out pent up aggression, Foval said.Warm-ups during a boxing class at the Fort Worth Downtown Title Boxing.“Hitting something instead of hitting someone can kinda help out,” he said.Another benefit of boxing is learning self defense skills.“It’s good confidence builder for a lot of people learning how to defend yourself because you do learn how to hit and kick correctly,” Foval said. “It’s also just to kind of understand that within an hour you can get so much more done than most people can do on their own in two to three days in multiple workouts, it gets a lot more done. It’s a good just kinda release for everything that you do.”While many include boxing in their workout regimen, everyone has their own reason why they love it.“It’s just something that you get to look forward to everyday,” Powell said. “At Title they make sure to really focus on you and the trainer really works with you and helps you strengthen what you need to strengthen.”A typical hour boxing class at Title starts off with a cardio warm-up, eight rounds of boxing, and abs to finish off strong. Title also offers a shorter 30 minute class, among other things.Locals can try boxing out at one of Title Boxing’s two Fort Worth locations, downtown on the Corner 4th and Lamar or on Hulen Street. Title has other locations in Texas as well as 32 other states and Mexico.

Brazil: Journalists Face Intimidation in Campaign

first_img October 24, 2018 – Updated on October 25, 2018 Brazil: Journalists Face Intimidation in Campaign April 27, 2021 Find out more “It´s unacceptable that people are harassed or attacked due to their work or political opinion. This has a huge chilling effect for the whole society. We need more freedom of expression to foster our democratic institutions,” said Laura Tresca, acting executive director of Article 19 South America. Organisation Help by sharing this information BrazilAmericas Condemning abusesProtecting journalistsOnline freedoms Conflicts of interestWomenFreedom of expressionViolence  The organizations are the Article 19, the Brazilian Association of Investigative Journalism (Abraji), the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ), Conectas Human Rights, Human Rights Watch, and Reporters without Borders (RSF). Presidential candidates should vigorously denounce threats and violence against journalists covering the election campaign in Brazil, several Brazilian and international non-governmental organizations said today. Scores of reporters have been harassed, threatened, and in some cases physically attacked. Follow the news on Brazil News “The threats are unacceptable; they must be investigated and those responsible be held accountable in order to protect responsible, investigative, and independent journalism,” said Juana Kweitel, executive director of Conectas Human Rights. RSF_en Reports April 15, 2021 Find out more The Brazilian Association of Investigative Journalism (Abraji) has documented 141 cases of threats and violence against reporters covering the elections. Most of them were allegedly carried out by Bolsonaro supporters, while the rest allegedly involved Workers Party supporters. The online harassment of women reporters covering the elections often includes sexual insults and threats of sexual violence, Article 19 found. The harassment and intimidation of journalists occurs in a context of polarization and heightened political violence against LGBT people, women, Afro-Brazilians, and those expressing different political views than the aggressors. On October 8, a man stabbed to death Romualdo Rosário da Costa at a bar in Salvador, allegedly after the man became angry when da Costa revealed he had voted for Fernando Haddad, the Workers Party candidate for president. Bolsonaro himself was the victim of a violent attack during a rally in September. “Attacks by supporters of presidential candidates against the press are unacceptable and unworthy of any party that aspires to govern the country,” said Emmanuel Colombié, the head of RSF’s Latin America bureau. “The hate speech and disinformation campaigns are exacerbating tensions in Brazil’s already highly polarized society. RSF backs all Brazilian journalists, whose work during this turbulent period is essential.” News “One can disagree with a media report, and should have the right to say so publicly, but threatening the reporter and inciting others to do the same not only endangers journalists´ personal safety, but it undermines free speech and democracy,” said Maria Laura Canineu, Brazil director at Human Rights Watch. “Presidential candidates should defend reporters’ right to inform the public and the public’s right to be informed.” On October 23, the paper requested the Superior Electoral Court to order the Federal Police to open an investigation into what it considers a possible “orchestrated attempt to thwart freedom of expression.” In March, unidentified  assailants shot at a bus that carried 28 reporters who were covering a Workers Party event. Nobody was hurt. Workers Party supporters have also allegedly harassed and hit reporters. RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies “The threats against Patrícia Campos Mello and other journalists are an alarming escalation of anti-press rhetoric in this contentious electoral cycle in Brazil,” said Natalie Southwick, CPJ Central and South America Program Coordinator. “Journalists covering the Brazilian presidential election must be able to work freely and safely while reporting on issues of public interest. We call on candidates from all parties to respect press freedom and refrain from inflammatory statements against the media, and to urge their supporters to stop harassing and threatening journalists.”  to go further BrazilAmericas Condemning abusesProtecting journalistsOnline freedoms Conflicts of interestWomenFreedom of expressionViolence Receive email alerts After that report, Mauro Paulino, a Folha de São Paulo executive, also received threats through a messaging app and at home, the newspaper said. In addition, the paper said Bolsonaro supporters engaged in a “systematic” attack against one of its Whatsapp numbers, which received 220,000 messages in four days. That made it impossible for reporters to follow up on messages sent by its readers, said Folha.  Patrícia Campos Mello, a reporter from Folha de São Paulo, received an avalanche of threats online, two threatening calls, and her Whatsapp account was hacked after she uncovered and reported on an alleged campaign by business backers of the presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro to distribute false news stories through WhatsApp to millions of Brazilians.
