I’d listen to Warren Buffett and invest in this share Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Image source: The Motley Fool Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Sharescenter_img Warren Buffett is an investing legend who has dropped many pearls of wisdom over the years. The quote, “Be fearful when others are greedy. Be greedy when others are fearful” has always resonated with me because it epitomises the mindset of a contrarian investor. Covid has presented an opportunity to follow this excellent advice.There are many shares in the UK market that I believe Warren Buffett would take an interest in, but the one I like the most is Cineworld Group (LSE: CINE). 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…Before I dive into the reasons why, I want to introduce a second quote from Buffett’s mentor Benjamin Graham, another titan of value investing. In his book The Intelligent Investor he wrote, “Buy when most people, including experts, are pessimistic, and sell when they are actively optimistic”. I believe that Cineworld is an opportunity to follow the wisdom of Warren Buffett and Ben Graham. Since the beginning of the year, Cineworld shares have fallen 76%. This is a definite example of fear causing the price to fall spectacularly. While it quickly recovered from the lows of in March, it has gained little ground since then. These price movements imply that investors are fearful for the future of Cineworld. I believe this has led to the kind of opportunity that Warren Buffett would capitalise on. Cineworld also has a sizeable amount of short interest at 7.5% of all shares. These short positions are held by hedge funds, the alleged experts. On a basic level, professionals short stocks because they are fearful about the future of the company. While funds can profit from short positions, they are also often wrong – so shorted companies should not be avoided, in my opinion. This shows the kind of fear and professional opinion that Warren Buffett and his mentor Ben Graham were talking about. Cineworld’s share price has fallen so far because the company lost all its revenue when this crisis began, but when its cinemas reopen at the end of this month, the hardest part should be over. The company’s recovery will not be swift, but it does not have to be for the brave investor to make money. I believe that consumers will return to cinemas after months of being stuck at home. Die-hard fans will certainly return to see the big screen as soon as they can. This kind of captive audience provides a form of defensive moat that would attract Warren Buffett, I believe.It may take several years for traffic to return to pre-pandemic levels, but the industry should recover. While Cineworld stock has performed poorly in the past few years, I believe the current price offers a high return opportunity. The only downside left in Cineworld stock is the prospect of bankruptcy, which investors should consider. However, the announcement of further lines of credit should enable the company to survive, unless further widespread lockdowns occur.Cineworld may have a long road ahead of it before it recovers, but I think its shares could be an investment that Warren Buffett and Ben Graham would proud of. However, as other Fools have noted, this investment is not for the faint-hearted.  Charles Heighton has no position in any shares mentioned.

Savea not the only one to discard mouthguard as debate continues

first_imgThursday Nov 12, 2020 Savea not the only one to discard mouthguard as debate continues New Zealand Rugby have received support from the public for saying how “incredibly disappointed” it was in Ardie Savea for not wearing a mouthguard as he is a role model for younger generations.The issue was first raised this season when the No8 was seen not wearing a mouthguard in the Bledisloe Cup Test in Auckland, but was seen again last weekend without one in the loss to the Wallabies in Brisbane.ADVERTISEMENTGiven the peculiar nature of this reprimand, there are some who see this as a non-issue, as Savea is a grown man and a mouthguard is not obligatory in rugby.Players ranging from former internationals to amateurs have said that they did not, or do not, use one, many of whom have also provided anecdotes as to why they regret that decision.ADVERTISEMENTThough World Rugby states that mouthguards are permitted, they are not required. However, this is an internal affair as it is stated in the Collective Agreement between the New Zealand Rugby Union and the Rugby Players Collective that “a player agrees to wear a mouthguard in the course of playing rugby for a New Zealand team or when contact training.”So while some have said that this should have been dealt with internally and not made public, it has been stressed that Savea is a role model.When bearing that in mind, rebuking the loose forward discreetly is nigh on pointless, as this is a circumstance where action must be seen to be done in order to set an example and ensure the safety of younger players.ADVERTISEMENTSavea is certainly not a player that would flout this agreement for the sake of it, and previously chose not to wear one in the past due to breathing difficulties. But this is not the first time he has been flagged for not wearing one, neither is he the only player, and he will know the responsibility he carries as an All Black.I don’t think it’s a case of whether it’s legal or not it’s the fact as a collective the team decided they all would wear them, he’s gone off as an individual.— LSH1986 (@hadley700) November 11, 2020I think the whole point is that he is a role model to kids… and we are trying to make the game safer so that more kids play at grass routes and grow the game.— Jake Kinsail (@jakekinsail) November 11, 2020But I guess its a role model thing. Different time as well though maybe. Pre concussion protocols etc when safety wasn’t quite as at the forefront of people’s minds?— Nick Auger (@NickAuger88) November 11, 2020It’s also the example he sets to other players and younger generations who want to ‘be like their hero’ as possible dental trauma can be so severe in rugby. Also minor point, but if his teeth made contact with another player in an impact situation, can do a lot of damage to them— James White (@JamesRW95) November 11, 2020Everyone talking about protecting teeth, but it is also a strong protection against concussion and any long term brain damage as it is a shock absorber to the brain if you get a thump on the mouth/chin.— Lex Hipkins (@RicHowUK) November 11, 2020We talk about laws and refs protecting players – how about players protecting themselves? @wadesgotit #worsethanhightackle ? #rucktime— Travis (@wanderingTrav) November 11, 2020 Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Planting Forecast: Rain Potential Daily Next Week

first_img Facebook Twitter Planting Forecast: Rain Potential Daily Next Week SHARE SHARE By Ryan Martin – May 14, 2021 Heavy rain at the outset of last week doomed our field work chances for most of the week in many areas. This week. We start the planting forecast dry, but rains that show up late Sunday will have a hard time going away all week. The good news is that we are seeing lower rain totals for this week than we feared earlier this week. The bad news is we have rain potential almost every day for the week, and even with smaller totals, there is no real good opportunity to dry, the way we see the week playing out right now. We will also state for the record that there still is not a good consensus among any models or data. Really, this forecast could change dramatically in the days ahead, and our projection is for a wet week. It could be much wetter than we are projecting, or perhaps it goes drier. This has been a very difficult pattern and period to get a handle on over the entire eastern corn belt.Fully sunny and dry for Saturday. Temps will be above normal. It will be a good day with good evaporation. This will be the best chance of field work in this forecast. Sunday will see clouds. Overnight Saturday night into Sunday morning we can’t rule out a few hit and miss showers over the northern half of the state, but really we see no more than a few hundredths to a tenth. Rains start to build back into SW Indiana late Sunday afternoon and evening.Overnight Sunday night through Monday we have showers and a few thunderstorms that can bring .25”-1.5” rain totals with coverage at 80% of the state. The heaviest action will be with thunderstorms and those look most likely in central IN, but we will not limit their spread or scope at this time.Tuesday forward through the rest of the week we have a chance of scattered showers every day. Daily coverage will be no better than 60% on most days but may reach 80% on Thursday. Daily totals range from a few hundredths to .5”, and for the week combined, the rains can add an additional .25”-1.5” to what we see Sunday night through Monday. The map below shows rain potential for the 10 day period as a compared to normal. All of us are expecting above normal moisture potentially. Remember our comment above that moisture could be more than the totals we are projecting in the paragraphs above, and we hope they are less….time will tell. The key here is that we all won’t see rain every day…but there are chances over the state, and even if you miss rain on one or more days, with the set up, we will not see any wholesale drying for the week.Sunday may be dry for the daytime hours, but a chance of showers returns overnight Sunday night into Monday.Extended Period:Tuesday and Wednesday, the 25th and 26th we should see some drier air. But, showers are back for Thursday the 27th with .1”-.4” potential. We go sunny and dry for the 28th through the 31st.Weeks 3 & 4:Slightly more active precipitation will be found over the region for week three, as we see normal to slightly above normal precipitation for the week. We dry down in week 4 and may be able to squeeze out a totally or mostly dry week there as we head toward mid-June. Temps for both weeks suggest we have finally shaken off the cold air, and we should be well above normal both weeks.Week 3Precipitation (green: above normal, brown: below)Temperatures (blue: below normal, orange: above)Week 4Precipitation (green: above normal, brown: below)Temperatures (blue: below normal, orange: above) Home Indiana Agriculture News Planting Forecast: Rain Potential Daily Next Week Previous articleSoybean Planting Depth Considerations When Planting Into Dry Soil ConditionsNext articleBronaugh Confirmed as USDA Deputy Secretary Ryan Martin Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

It looks at the media war being waged by the two Sudans and highlights the impact of the ubiquitous, heavy-handed security forces. It also highlights a growing tendency of journalists to censor themselves, and stresses the need for laws regulating the media.Ranked 111th out of 179 countries in the 2011-2012 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index, South Sudan is currently at a crossroads, the report argues.“South Sudan is not currently prey to concerted and systematic harassment of its media. But there has been a disturbing accumulation of incidents and isolated acts of repression or intimidation that end up undermining the climate in which journalists and media operate,” Reporters Without Borders said.In its conclusions, the report urges the authorities to severely punish anyone violating freedom of information and to stop using nationalistic arguments to pressure the media. It urges the military and security apparatus to put a stop to acts of brutality towards journalists. And it urges the National Legislative Assembly to quickly adopt the three media laws that were submitted by the government.Reporters Without Borders also encourages the international community to condition aid to South Sudan on respect for fundamental freedoms, especially freedom of information, and encourages NGOs to support the development of South Sudan’s media and training of journalists. And finally, it calls on South Sudan’s journalists to adhere to professional ethics and resist pressure to censor themselves.Photo : (AFP / Adriane Ohanesian) to go further RSF_en South SudanAfrica August 21, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more

Hurricane watch issued as Tropical Storm Dorian nears Puerto Rico

ABC News(NEW YORK) — Tropical Storm Dorian is moving west over the Caribbean as residents in Puerto Rico prepare for a possible impact. Dorian was even weaker Tuesday than it was Monday.The National Hurricane Center (NHC) has issued a hurricane watch for the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico though the storm may not be strong enough to become a hurricane.Dorian is expected to pass between Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic Wednesday evening into early Thursday morning with winds approaching 70 mph.Puerto Rico Gov. Wanda Vazquez has signed an order declaring a state of emergency as she warned residents to prepare. “Hurricane Maria was a lesson for us and nearly two years after its devastating passage, today we can say that we are better prepared,” Vazquez said Monday.More than 7,400 generators and three mega generators are already on the island, according to the governor.  At least 360 shelters will open with a capacity of holding 48,500 people. By the end of Tuesday, radios and satellite phones will be delivered to mayors and police departments throughout the island at all municipalities, officials said.Vazquez added that she is in communication with the White House and there is a new Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) representative on the island assisting in response coordination. If the storm survives landfall, it’ll reemerge over the Bahamas early Friday. The storm may then move over the Bahamas and come close to Florida by the weekend. But the system will be fighting a lot of wind shear that will keep it from strengthening. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved. read more
