The FTSE 100’s recent decline has been painful for most investors. Paper losses are likely to have been seen, often big ones. And the near-term prospects for the index could prove to be highly uncertain.However, it is during such periods that the best buying opportunities can present themselves for long-term investors. The track record of the stock market shows that. The fact is, buying high-quality businesses while they are priced relatively cheaply can lead to high returns in 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…With that in mind, here are two FTSE 100 shares which appear to offer improving outlooks. Buying them in an ISA today could lead to lucrative returns in the coming years.DiageoBeverages company Diageo (LSE: DGE) has recorded a 15% decline in its share price since the start of the year. It reported in February that coronavirus was negatively impacting on its performance. Since then, the company is likely to have experienced further challenges across many of its markets. As such, its profit growth could experience a sharp decline in the coming months.Clearly, it is not possible to know how long the coronavirus pandemic will last. Nor is it possible to know, at this stage, how deeply it will affect Diageo’s financial performance. But the company’s track record is strong. It has shown it is capable of delivering growth. And its stable of popular brands, could enable it to generate high returns in the long run.The stock currently trades on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 19.6. This is significantly higher than many of its FTSE 100 peers, despite the company’s recent share price decline. However, its exposure to fast-growing emerging markets and its sound financial position mean that it could be worth a premium valuation. Over the long run, it has the potential to generate improving returns, which could make now the right time to buy a slice of it in an ISA.Reckitt BenckiserAnother FTSE 100 global consumer goods business that has recorded a decline in its share price since the start of the year is Reckitt Benckiser (LSE: RB). Its shares are down 8% in 2020, although they had experienced a decline prior to the start of the year due to disappointing operational performance from the business in 2019.It plans to increase its focus on fast-growing markets such as China, while aiming to enhance its position within the growing e-commerce market. This will require significant investment in the near term, but could lead to Reckitt Benckiser enjoying higher levels of growth in the long run.The company currently trades on a P/E ratio of 17.5. This appears to be low relative to its historic levels, and suggests that investors have priced-in the uncertainties facing the business from coronavirus and from its weak recent performance. With a range of strong brands and what seems to be a sound strategy, now could be an opportune moment to buy Reckitt Benckiser for the long term.

Pakistani journalist critical of the military wounded by gunfire PakistanAsia – Pacific Condemning abusesMedia independence Economic pressureFreedom of expression News Distribution of the English-language daily Dawn, Pakistan’s oldest newspaper, is being disrupted in much of the country since it published an interview with former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns this latest attack on media freedom. Newscenter_img Help by sharing this information News Pakistani supreme court acquits main suspect in Daniel Pearl murder RSF_en to go further Receive email alerts The interview, which reportedly displeased the Pakistani military, appeared in the 12 May (Saturday) issue and the blocking began on 15 May. According to RSF’s information, distribution is being disrupted in most of Baluchistan province, in many cities in Sindh province and in all military cantonments.The Press Council of Pakistan has notified Dawn’s editor that the newspaper breached the ethical code of practice by publishing content that “may bring into contempt Pakistan or its people or tends to undermine its sovereignty or integrity as an independent country.”“The unwarranted blocking of the distribution of one of the main independent newspapers has yet again shown that the military are determined to maintain their grip on access to news and information in Pakistan,” RSF said.“It is clear that the military high command does not want to allow a democratic debate in the months preceding a general election. We call on the authorities to stop interfering in the dissemination of independent media and to restore distribution of Dawn throughout Pakistan.”Last month, the military were said to have given unofficial instructions to cable TV operators to stop carrying the Geo TV network’s channels, including Geo News, in most of the country. One of the reasons was the airtime that the network had dedicated to Sharif, who was removed as prime minister by the supreme court in July 2017 in connection with a corruption case.Pakistan is ranked 139th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index.

This group will be tasked with looking at the naming of future roads and bridges in Limerick.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Mayor Kathleen Leddin last week told the Limerick Post that she would not be reversing the council decision because it was done through the proper procedures.However, this week she believes a “time of reflection” is needed.“Notwithstanding the great admiration that I have for the late President John F Kennedy and of his family’s deep affection for Ireland, I feel that it is best to postpone the naming of the bridge at this stage,” said Mayor Leddin.“I acknowledge that a number of people have been in contact with me and were unhappy with the proposal to change the bridge’s name. I feel that a time of reflection is now needed before a final decision is made,” she explained.The proposal to rename the Shannon Bridge and separately, the area at Merchant’s Quay had been the subject of a Notice of Motion by City Councillor and former Mayor Pat Kennedy last month.The motion stated it would be appropriate for Limerick City Council to “honour and commemorate appropriately JFK and Brian Ború for their extraordinary contributions to the advancement of Limerick, Irish and International affairs”.Fine Gael councillor Diarmuid Scully, who proposed that the people of Limerick should be heard on the matter, has welcomed the Mayor’s decision to postpone the proposed name change.“It’s unusual enough in politics for people to recognise that a mistake has been made and correct it. The Mayor has done so and deserves full credit for that,” said Cllr Scully. #HearThis: New music and video from Limerick rapper Strange Boy Twitter Watch the streamed gig for Fergal Nash album launch New Music: 40Hurtz NewsLocal NewsA ‘time for reflection’ on the JFK bridgeBy Alan Jacques – March 13, 2014 863 Print #SaucySoul: Room 58 – ‘Hate To See You Leave’ last_img read more

I knew that that was going to be my career and it was what I was supposed to do,” she added.Closer to earning a business degree than one in education, Micah earned a business degree from the University of Phoenix and got her alternative certification from the Region 18 Education Service Center.They both attended Odessa College. Nathan got his associate degree.Micah decided to go for a master’s because her husband was determined to get one.An Odessa High School dropout, Nathan said he earned a bachelor’s degree in life science with a minor in English as a second language from UTPB.Before working at the Alternative Center, Nathan taught horticulture and managed the ECISD greenhouses. “I came in visiting her and enjoyed the kids, so I decided I would venture this way,” Nathan said.He added that he felt a special connection with at-risk youngsters.“That kind of put me in a different field from special ed. I wanted to be where I could help the kids not make the same mistakes I did, but see they could still become successful despite whatever mistakes they made,” Nathan said.“I wasn’t raised that education was that important. That’s why I dropped out of high school. I just feel blessed to find my own way,” he added.As an educator, Nathan said, he wants to let students know there’s no stopping, despite any obstacles.He noted that he has been blessed to have administrators who believed in him and pushed him to continue his education.“I worked under Charles Quintela. He encouraged me to keep going and not to settle and put me in leadership roles, which from there, I just kind of chose to go to get master’s and stepping up to the principalship role, which is my next step,” Nathan added.Quintela was the principal at the Alternative Center and now helms Ector Middle School.Micah said Nathan started his master’s in November 2016 and she began in January 2017. He wants to be an assistant principal at the secondary level and Micah would like in special education administration.“We do everything together and I just knew I was going to be with him every step of the way and I thought, ‘Why should I be in it with him this whole time and not participate myself?’ How dumb would that be? He took that one class and I started with him the very next class …,” Micah said.They completed their degrees quickly. Along with teaching, the Pettigrews are involved in many volunteer activities and run House of the Sycamore Tree, a vocational training facility for special needs and at-risk young adults after they’ve finished school.As a couple, the Pettigrews are Area I coordinators for the Texas Youth Hunting Program. They teach credit recovery in the evening and she does in-home training where she teaches critical skills to students with autism in the home.The couple has been married since 1991 and has two daughters and four grandchildren.“We volunteer all the time we work all the time, then we’re very dedicated during the day to the jobs we have during the day,” Micah said.When she earned her master’s degree, Micah said she wasn’t nearly as excited as when she earned her bachelor’s.“It was very bizarre for me because it was like almost like an ordinary day. I had a hard time recognizing the accomplishment. It was real weird. I can remember being so excited about finishing my bachelor’s,” Micah said.Back then, the Pettigrews were raising two children on teacher’s aide salaries. For her, earning a bachelor’s degree meant more financial security.“I was going to be able to make sure our finances were OK and he was going to be not far behind me. That made a difference in how I felt. It was about finances for me. People do things for different reasons and mine was about making sure that our family was taken care of and he was able to finish and we would be better off as a family,” Micah said.Nathan wants to earn a doctorate from UTPB, but there isn’t a program there yet.Micah is glad for the breather, although she enjoyed gathering knowledge.“Getting my master’s was the best educational experience I’ve ever had in my life,” she said. “Ever. I really, really, really enjoyed it. We had amazing professors. We could call them anytime; day or night, weekends; they responded; they were amazing. The learning we were doing was very focused. It was something that we were familiar with and we just needed some more knowledge about it.” UTPB homepageMicah and Nathan Pettigrew do everything together and they are busy people. They are both teachers with Ector County Independent School District, they run the House of the Sycamore Tree, they give of their time together and they recently earned their master’s degrees in educational leadership from the University of Texas of the Permian Basin.Micah is in her 22nd year with ECISD and Nathan has 19 years. All of Micah’s experience is in special education and Nathan works at the Alternative Education Center.She started as an aide at Permian High School, which is where she graduated. Micah said her mother is a special education teacher and wanted her to become an educator, as well.“I kept telling her I didn’t want to be a teacher. But I eventually I started substitute teaching. While I was substitute teaching, I subbed in a special ed classroom. I had the best day. I enjoyed it so much. I started telling the sub office, ‘If ya’ll have special ed openings, give them to me,’” Micah said.

However, the Court went ahead to observe that the plight of the victim and probability of the accused in tarnishing her image need to be looked which deciding the question of bail. The Court also observed that there is a need for amendment in the legislation defining what constitutes sexual intercourse with the prosecutrix on the prextext of false promise to marry.The observation came from a single judge bench comprising of Justice SK Panigrahi which denied the bail application filed by a person accused of raping a woman after developing a romantic physical relationship with her on the false pretext of marrying her. The woman alleged that the applicant also caused her abortion by giving her medicine in the event of her getting pregnant twice. Thereafter, the applicant denied marrying her even after her parents contacted the family of the applicant in order to get their consent for marriage. However, the said proposal was denied. In view of this, the family of the woman fixed her marriage elsewhere.It was also alleged that on 26th April 2020, the applicant posted their personal photographs using a fake accounts on Facebook created under her name by using a caption stating her to be of a bad character. As a result of this, her marriage was thereafter broken. An FIR was thereafter lodge under sec. 376(1) (Punishment for Rape), 313 (Causing miscarriage without woman’s consent), 294 (Obscene acts and songs) and 506 (Punishment for criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code and sec. 66(E) (Punishment for violation of privacy) and 67(A) (Punishment for publishing or transmitting of material containing sexually explicit act, etc., in electronic form) of the Information Technology (Amendment) Act, 2008. Law on Sexual Intercourse with Prosecutrix on false promise to marry lacks clarity The Court while analyzing the inter relationship between sec. 90 (Consent known to be given under fear or misconception) and sec. 375 of IPC observed that even though the judiciary has dealt with the use of such concepts, however, “a certain viewpoint has not been reached and still under the shroud of confusion.” “There is a need for the amendment in the legislation defining what constitutes “sexual intercourse” with the prosecutrix on the “pretext of a false promise of marriage”. As in the present scenario, the law on this matter lacks clarity for the conviction of the accused.” The Court observed. In observing so, the Court relied on the judgment of Anurag Soni vs. State of Chhattisgarh AIR 2019 SC 1857 wherein the Apex Court held that if an accused from the very beginning has given a promise of marriage without any intention to fulfill that promise and in lieu of such promise that the accused will marry her, then such consent would not amount to valid consent. “The rape laws should not be used to regulate intimate relationships, especially in cases where women have agency and are entering a relationship by choice. However, it needs to be brought forward that many of the complaints come from socially disadvantaged and poor segments of the society and rural areas, women from these sections are often lured into sex by men on false promises of marriage and then dumped as soon as they get pregnant. The rape law often fails to capture their plight.” The Court observed. Furthermore, the Court observed that since sec. 375 provides specific circumstances as to when consent amounts to “no consent”, the said provision “fails to mention that consent for sexual act on the pretext of marriage” as one of the circumstances. “Hence, the automatic extension of provisions of Section 90 of IPC to determine the effect of consent under Section 375 of IPC deserves a serious relook. The law holding that false promise to marriage amounts to rape appears to be erroneous, however, the plight of the victim and the probability of the accused tarnishing the dignity of the victim and her family need to be looked at while deliberating on the question of bail.” The Court observed.Observing that the perusal of FIR shows prima facie specific allegations against the applicant accused, the Court denied him bail after noting that there is a possibility of coercion of victim’s family, repetition of similar type of offence and flee from justice. “There are numerous other allegations as well in the charge sheet which are very detailed and need not be reproduced since the above extracts are sufficient to indicate that the allegations are specific and not of a general nature. They make out a prima facie case.” the Court observed while rejecting the bail application.

It was November 1950.The family of Army Corp.

King’s brother, Charlie, accepted the award, which was presented on his wedding anniversary. Charlie and Wilma King have been married 55 years. King said Thursday was a day that he will cherish always.“Herbert had been in the Army two years when he went missing,” his brother said. “He joined when he was 18 years old because he wanted to be a soldier.“I was only 14 years old when the telegram came.

We had to wonder and wait and pray for him to come home.Army Corp. Herbert King did come home.On March 2, 2010, after Missing in Action for 60 years, he was finally laid to rest with military honors in Troy, his hometown.“We never had given up hope and were so excited and blessed to know that Herbert’s body had been found and that he would come home,” King said. “Our mother didn’t get to know though.” Rochelle King said that her uncle’s body was located in a battleground foxhole in Korea.“There were three soldiers in that foxhole. They were lying on top of each other,” she said. “My uncle was in the middle so the Army was able to recover almost all of his remains and his dog tag and his hat and boots. But they still needed DNA evidence to prove that it was him.”For the DNA evidence, the Army looked to the next of kin, his brother, Charlie King.“The Army sent a kit and we sent the swab back and it was 99.9 percent proof that the body was Uncle Herbert,” King said. “It was a sad day but it was a happy day when he finally came home. And, this is a happy day, too.”And, it was with great pride that Corp. Herbert King’s family accepted the Purple Heart in his honor on Thursday.The award was presented to Charlie King by SFC Jean Thimothe and SFC David Cochran of the 1st-13th Aviation Battalion at Fort Rucker.And, it was more than a coincidence that the Purple Heart was awarded to King’s family on Feb. 21, said Lytricia King.“Feb. 21, 2013 is my grandparents’ 55th anniversary,” she said. “This makes it even more special for them – for all of us.”Charlie King placed the Purple Heart next to the boxed flag and medals that were given to the family at Herbert King’s funeral two years ago.Those items are now his legacy.But perhaps, the greatest legacy lies in the fact that all three of his younger brothers, Charlie, Eddie and Samuel, volunteered to serve their country to honor their brother who was Missing In Action.That was the least they could do, King said.

Systematic errors in VLF direction-finding of whistler ducts—II

first_imgIn the previous paper (Strangeways, 1980) it was shown that the systematic error in the azimuthal bearing due to multipath propagation and incident wave polarisation (when this also constitutes an error) was given by only three different forms for all VLF direction-finders currently used to investigate the position of whistler ducts. In this paper the magnitude of this error is investigated for different ionospheric and ground parameters for these three different systematic error types. By incorporating an ionosphere for which the refractive index is given by the full Appleton-Hartree formula, the variation of the systematic error with ionospheric electron density and latitude and direction of propagation is investigated in addition to the variation with wave frequency, ground conductivity and dielectric constant and distance of propagation. The systematic bearing error is also investigated for the three methods when the azimuthal bearing is averaged over a 2 kHz bandwidth. This is found to lead to a significantly smaller bearing error which, for the crossed-loops goniometer, approximates the bearing error calculated when phase-dependent terms in the receiver response are ignored.last_img read more
