This kind of volatility scares a lot of investors. Personally, I love it. For long-term investors like myself, it can create fantastic buying opportunities.In this article, I’m going to highlight two UK growth stocks I’d buy in November. Both stocks have pulled back recently as a result of market volatility, and I think it’s a great time to buy.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…A UK growth stock with huge potentialOne UK growth stock that I think has big potential is Clipper Logistics (LSE: CLG). It’s a company that offers a range of services to retailers, including warehousing, delivery, and returns management. It has a distinguished list of clients that includes ASOS, John Lewis, and Sports Direct.Clipper has a lot of momentum right now as it’s benefitting from the accelerated shift to e-commerce. This is illustrated in the company’s full-year results, which were posted in late August. For the year ended 30 April, group revenue increased by 8.8% to £500.7m, while basic earnings per share were up 20.5% to 15.9p. A dividend of 9.7p per share was declared.Looking ahead, Chairman Steve Parkin that the group is in an excellent position to achieve further growth both in the UK and internationally. Analysts expect revenue growth of around 20% this year.Clipper shares have a great run recently. Since I covered the stock in late June, it has risen from 290p to as high as 520p. However, recently, it has pulled back. I think this is a good entry point. The stock is now trading on 18 times next year’s forecast earnings. I see that as a buy.Poised for big growthAnother UK growth stock I like the look of right now is XP Power (LSE: XPP). It’s a leading manufacturer of critical power control components for the electronics industry. Its focus is on the industrial, healthcare, and technology sectors.XP Power looks set to benefit from a few dominant trends in the years ahead. The first is digitalisation. As the world becomes increasingly digital, demand for its products should rise. The second is increased healthcare spending. XP Power creates components for crucial healthcare devices such as X-ray machines, patient monitors, and ventilators.XPP posted an encouraging Q3 trading update in October. For the first nine months of 2020, orders were up 29%. That’s pretty good when you consider that the company was disrupted by Covid-19 earlier in the year. Third-quarter revenue came in at £69m, up 28% on the same period last year.Looking ahead, the company said that it expects its performance for full-year 2020 will be toward the top end of current analyst expectations. It also said it remains confident in the long-term market opportunity, supported by the structural growth drivers in the marketplace, and in its ability to capture this opportunity.XP Power shares were trading near 4,700p in the first half of October. They’ve since pulled back to around 4,000p. I see this share price weakness as a buying opportunity. The P/E ratio using next year’s earnings forecast is about 22, which seems very reasonable. I think this UK growth stock has a lot of appeal right now. Click here to claim your copy of this special investment report — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top Small-Cap Stock… free of charge!

9 top British stocks I’d buy today

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Enter Your Email Address 5 Stocks For Trying To Build Wealth After 50 Click here to claim your free copy of this special investing report now! I would also consider these. 9 top British stocks I’d buy today I believe that building a portfolio of top British stocks is a great way of investing for my future. If I was starting from scratch, I’d start by investing in a range of blue-chip companies from the FTSE 100, operating across different sectors with different levels of risk.I’d hold at least a dozen top British stocks in my portfolio, possibly increasing that to 15 or 20 over time. First, I’d buy pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline. This longstanding Motley Fool favourite is out of favour right now but, as a result, is valued at just 11.69 times earnings. It also yields an astonishing 5.89%.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…Glaxo has to work hard on replenishing its drugs portfolio, and the dividend payout has been held for years as management diverts resources to R&D. I’m investing for a minimum of 10-15 years though, and that should give its share price plenty of time to recover.I’d buy FTSE 100 stocks for income and growthI’d supplement that with some top income-generating British stocks, such as utility giants National Grid and United Utilities Group. While their shares may show little growth, they offer solid yields of 5.19% and 4.31% respectively, with relatively low risk. For income, I’d also buy Tesco.I’d then buy household and hygiene goods supplier Unilever. This also offers strong defensive qualities, as consumer demand for its products typically holds firm in a recession. Unilever is usually expensive, so today’s valuation of 19.9 times earnings looks attractive to me.Its 3.46% yield is also more generous than normal. Some investors have fallen out of love with Unilever as they seek faster growth prospects in the post-Covid recovery. However, I believe top British stocks like this one merit long-term loyalty.For more excitement, I’d target the commodity sector by investing in global miner Rio Tinto. This is another top British stock trading at an attractive valuation. In this case, just 11.02 times earnings. It also yields a mighty 5.75%. This is an attractive way to play the post-lockdown global rebound, assuming mutant strains don’t knock it off course.I’d also buy these top British stocksIt’s hard to ignore the banks, and I’d include both Barclays and Lloyds Banking Group. Both are on the road to restoring their reputations and dividends, although there will no doubt be further bumps along the road.If inflation and interest rates rise, they could widen their net interest margins and increase profitability. The risk is that inflation squeezes economic growth, and banking profits. As with all the stocks, holding for the long term should reduce my risks.Finally, I find it hard to draw up a list of top British stocks without including the housebuilders, given the central importance of property to our economy. As house prices hit new highs, I’d include Barratt Developments and Taylor Wimpey.They could slip back if the property market slows, but I believe their long-term futures remain bright, as supply is likely to outstrip demand for years and years. Markets around the world are reeling from the coronavirus pandemic…And with so many great companies trading at what look to be ‘discount-bin’ prices, now could be the time for savvy investors to snap up some potential bargains.But whether you’re a newbie investor or a seasoned pro, deciding which stocks to add to your shopping list can be daunting prospect during such unprecedented times.Fortunately, The Motley Fool is here to help: our UK Chief Investment Officer and his analyst team have short-listed five companies that they believe STILL boast significant long-term growth prospects despite the global lock-down…You see, here at The Motley Fool we don’t believe “over-trading” is the right path to financial freedom in retirement; instead, we advocate buying and holding (for AT LEAST three to five years) 15 or more quality companies, with shareholder-focused management teams at the helm.That’s why we’re sharing the names of all five of these companies in a special investing report that you can download today for FREE. If you’re 50 or over, we believe these stocks could be a great fit for any well-diversified portfolio, and that you can consider building a position in all five right away.

Donation stations will be set up around campus from May 4-13 so students can pass along clothing, bedding and room decorations from their rooms. The program, known recently as Trash to Treasure, has been around for more than a decade. This year, the Office of Community Engagement has partnered with Housing and Residence Life to urge students to donate to different organizations in the local community through the event. The Salvation Army, Safe Haven, Children’s Miracle Network and Goodwill are just a few of the nonprofits benefiting. The community, along with the nonprofits, will benefit from the program, according to director for community engagement Rosangela Boyd.“TCU’s mission encourages us to educate students to think and act as responsible citizens,” she said. “In addition, this initiative encourages sustainability.”Students can place their items in the donation boxes, which will be located in each residence hall and in nearby parking lots. World Relief, one of the beneficiaries, said they are in need of winter clothes for refugees fleeing war in cold climates, medical supplies and other utilities for natural disasters. “This effort ensures that items that would otherwise be left behind or thrown away at the end of the academic year are donated to nonprofit organizations that can make them available to their clients or sell them in their resale shops to raise money for their programs,” Boyd said.  Sophomore pre-med major Ashlyn Deaton said she’s excited to donate some of her old items.“I have so many supplies and decorations I won’t be using next year, so I will definitely be taking my things to these boxes to donate,” she said.Students who would like more information or would like to make a donation can contact [email protected] or call (817)-257-7865.

Community media under attack in three countries

first_img News to go further Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says Help by sharing this information 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies At least five privately-owned local and community-based media organizations in three South American countries have been the targets of violent attacks in the past few weeks, depriving some of them of the means to broadcast. Reporters Without Borders is committed to helping them rebuild.The press freedom organization is seeking a detailed breakdown of the estimated damage they have suffered. In view of the extent of the losses, we are requesting assistance from the authorities in the countries concerned, from international bodies and from organizations specializing in support for the media. “We hope these efforts to assist will allow the stations affected to resume normal programmes,” it said.“Media organizations, particularly community radio stations, have a substantial presence in Latin America but do not universally receive the legal recognition owing to them. In some countries, such as Honduras, they are treated as criminals or persecuted regularly. “Community radio stations, often run on a not-for-profit basis, are born from communities or social movements such as peasant farmers, native groups, African-Americans, women’s or gay and lesbians groups, and are often excluded from public debate. Yet they represent an important source of information on subjects of broad interest such as the environment, land disputes, minority issues or local development. They must be more protected in the interests of pluralism and in order to maintain their independence.“ArgentinaThe community radio station FM Pajsachama, based in El Retiro in the north-western province of Santiago del Estero, was attacked by two gunmen on 10 September two years after it was attacked with Molotov cocktails. The two attackers threatened the staff at gunpoint and destroyed workshops, equipment and radio installations. The station is owned by the Santiago del Estero-Vía Campesina Peasant Movement (MOCASE-VC), which is committed to the defence of the indigenous population and exposes the seizure of their lands. The station’s staff and members of the MOCASE movement, who have attracted the attention of agribusiness entrepreneurs with their eyes on native lands, are constantly attacked. MOCASE is currently mourning the death of one of its officials, Cristian Ferreyra, shot dead on 16 November. The community blames the killing on an ongoing dispute with agribusiness interests. November 24, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Community media under attack in three countries RSF_en WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists Organisation The manager, César Ramos Silva, is cautious about a motive for the attack but does not rule out a dispute with the commercial broadcasting industry. “Besides my role as manager of the rural television station, I am also vice-president of the Chilean National Association of Community and Citizens’ Radio Stations (ANARCICH), and in recent months I have successfully carried out numerous actions on the part of the organization against the abuses of commercial broadcasters,” Silva told Reporters Without Borders.However, Silva said he had no formal proof to support this theory.However, unfair competition exists and adds to the precariousness of community radio stations in Chile in the absence of adequate legislation giving them their proper place in the country’s broadcast media.The possibility of closure through legal action hangs over Kimche Mapu, a radio station of the indigenous Mapuche community, for interception of telecommunications, as a result of a complaint by Gilberto Santana, a local councillor and owner of the station Radio Lanco.“This is unacceptable in view of the flagrant conflict of interest shown in this complaint,” Reporters Without Borders said. The procedural persecution of Kimche Mapu is shameful in view of the station’s limited range which covers five communities and a total of 1,300 people.“For some time, Kimche Mapu has been seeking full official recognition and this process has suffered undue delay. “The press freedom organization joins AMARC, the World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters, in calling for the reform or replacement of Chile’s community and citizens’ radio law enacted in 2010.This year has been marked by numerous instances of brutality by security forces towards the press during student protests.Reporters Without Borders condemns the detention and ill-treatment of Estebán Sánchez of the station Radio ADN and of his independent Brazilian colleague Victor Farinelli by the Carabineros armed police.They were detained on 21 November during a controversial tribute to Miguel Krassnoff, a former officer convicted of human rights crimes committed during the Pinochet dictatorship. Receive email alertscenter_img Americas Follow the news on Americas June 3, 2021 Find out more June 7, 2021 Find out more News News The local privately-owned radio station FM Sapucay in Alba Posse, in Misiones province, had most of its equipment destroyed by fire on 18 November. Its owner and manager, Vitalino Acosta, and Ricardo Arrua, president of the Press and Social Communication Workers Forum of Misiones, said the blaze was started deliberately.“Early findings confirm that it was not an accident but an intentional act because traces of fuel were found,” Acosta said. The station has made allegations of mismanagement against the local authorities, in particular the mayor of Alba Posse, Nelson Carvalho. In 2003 its transmission cables were cut and two years later its transmitter was sabotaged. Two months ago the mayor himself forced his way into the studios and assaulted two journalists. After being forced off the air for 10 days, FM Sapucay was able to resume broadcasting yesterday with equipment lent by José Pietrowski, the head of FM Litoral, a radio station located in Oberá, in Misiones province.BoliviaThe radio station Radio Comunitaria Yapacaní and Canal 8 Televisión Comunitaria Yapacaní in the eastern province of Santa Cruz were vandalized on 14 November by a group of supporters of the mayor of Yapacani, David Carbajal, who has been implicated in a corruption case. The radio and television stations were able to partially resume broadcasts four days later after recovering 70 percent of the equipment dismantled and seized by the attackers.The two stations are owned by the Federation of Intercultural Communities in Yapacani, set up by indigenous migrants from the Altiplano.A federation official, Cirilo Sunavi, told Reporters Without Borders: “Mayor Carbajal, who is affiliated to the Federation and owes his career to it, is today applying himself to dividing organizations against each other. He is incompetent.“Of 38 million bolivanos (5.5 million dollars) in the proposed budget, he has invested only 1 million. That is why people are angry. The radio and television stations merely report this information and in return are subjected to invasion and vandalism of their premises by members of other communities.” In 2006 the two media outlets were forced to suspend their operations because of a similar internal dispute. The manager of Canal 8, José Antonio Rivas, told Reporters Without Borders he and wife were the targets of constant threats. ChileThe community television station Agro TV, which covers local development, reported an attack on 21 October on its installations in Cerro Monjas, in Quillota province near the central city of Valparaiso. The cables supporting the transmission tower were cut, causing it to collapse and destroying most of its equipment. The station is still unable to broadcast.

Jail expansion hits short delay

first_img Slap Your Mama It’s So Delicious Southern Squash CasseroleSouthern Style Potato SaladFoolproof Roasted Pork TenderloinPowered By 10 Sec Mama’s Deviled Eggs NextStay Home Local News Government Jail expansion hits short delay Local NewsGovernment Jail expansion hits short delay By admin – February 14, 2018 Pinterest Less than two weeks after the ceremonial groundbreaking, the Ector County Law Enforcement Center’s jail expansion encountered a setback in the shape of a storm drainage pipe where the expansion will be built.Interim Building Maintenance Director Charlie Pierce said the pipe would need to be moved, as it is not permitted to be placed underneath concrete, and was only found upon digging it up as they began construction on the expansion.The delay will be short, Pierce said, and the movement of the drainage pipe is expected to be completed by the end of next week.This is the second delay in the construction of the jail expansion. The groundbreaking, initially scheduled to take place sometime in January, was pushed back to Feb. 1 after waiting on approval from the Texas Jail Commission and some minor changes being made by the architect.Sheriff Mike Griffis previously said the expansion is expected to be complete in about 20 months, but another week of delays in construction could mean another week the county has to spend on sending inmates to jails in other counties.Ector County currently has contracts with eight other counties for housing inmates, which costs around $8,000 a day. Those counties are Parker, Hudspeth, Hale, Limestone, Lynn, McClennan, Scurry and Terry Counties, although Ector County may not be housing inmates in the eight other counties at all times.Around $3 million was budgeted this fiscal year for housing inmates outside of the county jail, including transportation costs for taking inmates back and forth to the courthouse.The jail expansion will cost the county $18.9 million, funded through debt. The permanent structure will add 412 beds to the jail in a new 60,000 square foot building, which will be permitted to house even the highest security inmates.County officials have said the expansion will also improve safety by eliminating the long inmate transports and reduce the amount of missed court dates and delays.Griffis previously said the expansion would also require about 20 additional workers, and expects to ask the county to fund some staff increases in the meantime for transporting prisoners until the expansion is completed.As of Tuesday, the county has 123 jailer positions with 15 vacancies.

Relation Insurance Services, Inc. Announces New Chief Revenue Officer

first_img Twitter Relation Insurance Services, Inc. Announces New Chief Revenue Officer WALNUT CREEK, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 8, 2021– Relation Insurance Services, Inc. (“Relation”) announced today the promotion of Russell Brown to the newly created role of Chief Revenue Officer (CRO). Brown, whose company was recently acquired by Relation, is a veteran insurance brokerage CEO as well as a 16-year Million Dollar Round Table member and seven-time Top of the Table honoree. “We are delighted to have Russell on our executive leadership team as Relation boldly grows its market reach nationally,” said Joseph Tatum, CEO of Relation. “First he proved himself as a consistent sales leader, then built a successful brokerage as CEO of Premier Consulting Partners.

In 2019, he determined that his team’s next leg of growth was optimized by bringing their capabilities to a resourceful national player, leading to the Relation transaction. “As an owner and successful producer, I saw, and continue to see, the huge upside to joining Relation,” remarked Brown. “From day one, my clients have benefited from additional resources that the company brings to bear. I have also met with many independent owners and sales professionals, which has resulted in several following my footsteps into the Relation family. As CRO, I look forward to welcoming many, many more owners and experienced brokers to the team—then delivering service, resources, rewards and technology that enable outsized organic growth. This is my promise.” Russell is no stranger to hard work. Before launching into insurance, he had the distinct honor of playing football against Tom Brady and Peyton Manning as a starting lineman for the University of Arkansas Razorbacks. More recently, he’s been kept in constant motion in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where he resides with his wife and five children. About Relation Insurance Services, Inc.

He chose the wrong way to convey his opinion about our great country. His posting does not represent the view of the MLBUA or reflect those of the umpires we represent,” the statement by the umpire’s association statement read. “The MLBUA supports all of the umpires who ensure fair play in the greatest game on earth. We are a group of individuals with diverse opinions and beliefs, united in our desire to continue our excellence officiating MLB games.”Drake has been with the Major Leagues since 2010, according to his umpire profile.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.
