Investors need to be braced for more turbulence on share markets, obviously. But there’s a broad bunch of brilliant FTSE 100 dividend stocks that look to0 good to miss at current prices.British American Tobacco (LSE: BATS) isn’t a large cap I’d buy today, though. As I explained in a piece about Imperial Brands today, ‘Big Tobacco’ might be performing resolutely during the Covid-19 crisis. But the steady global decline in smoker numbers makes such firms highly unattractive share buys, at least to this Fool.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…In an early morning announcement, BATS reported the pricing of its $2.4bn bond offering to strengthen its balance sheet. It said that the funds would be used “for general corporate purposes, including the potential repayment of upcoming maturities.”The move to strengthen its finances isn’t the only similarity the Footsie firm has with its industry rival, though. It has also announced recently that trading has remained robust despite the coronavirus outbreak. A fortnight ago it declared that “we have seen no material impact” while celebrating its “geographically diversified supply chain from both a manufacturing and distribution standpoint.”Vanishing vape salesI am unmoved by both firms’s resilience in these tough times, however. Legislators continue to ramp up efforts such as public smoking bans and marketing restrictions to keep global cigarette sales on the back foot. It’s a drive that saw British American Tobacco sell 4.4% fewer sticks in 2019 versus the previous year, and casts a cloud over the firm’s profits outlook in the near term and beyond.I’m concerned, too, by signs of cooling demand for British American Tobacco’s tobacco-heated products (THPs) like its Vype e-cigarette. Sales of these ranges rose a healthy 31.6% last year. However, this represents a huge slowdown from recent times. Annual volumes of THP consumables rocketed 217% in 2018.The trading environment is becoming more and more difficult, too. Market research specialist Technavio has predicted that 40% of e-cigarette growth during the next five years will come from North America. Rising restrictions on their sale all over the US threatens to derail such forecasts, however.British American Tobacco also faces the spectre of nosediving demand in key Asian markets. India banned e-cigarettes entirely last year and a number of its continental neighbours have followed suit.Cheap but riskyHealth concerns around these new technologies continue to rise, too, casting doubt on their ability to replace the lost revenues created by falling cigarette demand. The British American Tobacco share price has almost halved during the past three years, and there’s little reason at present to expect it to bounce back.Forget about its rock-bottom forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 8 times and bulky 8.2% dividend yield for 2021, I say. This is a share that, in spite of reassuring news this month, still carries too much risk. It’s one I certainly plan to keep avoiding.

Photo: Huw Evans Agency Get to know Wales U18 scrum-half Harri Morgan We are separate from the first team but a few months ago he gave us some pointers on box-kicking.Is it hard to juggle the training with your studies? I’ve got one more year of A levels and it is hard, but the Ospreys and the school work with each other really well and most of my lessons fit around training. I want to go to uni next year to study something to do with sport.How did you enjoy the Wales U18 tour to South Africa? It was awesome, the best experience in my life so far.What are your strengths? I don’t mind the physical side and I also enjoy it when the game becomes unstructured.What do you need to work on? Making sure I’m accurate in every part of the game. Even if I’m getting tired, I need to focus on being accurate.And your goals this season? To play Premiership rugby for Bridgend Ravens and have some U20s involvement. TAGS: Ospreys LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Born 16 March 2000 Birthplace Maesteg Region Ospreys Country Wales Position Scrum-halfWhen did you get involved in rugby?I played for my district side, Maesteg, at about 11 and joined my local club, Maesteg Celtic, after that.Did you play any other sports when you were younger? Football. I was with Cardiff City for a few years, until U11s, and was a midfielder. It’s helped with the kicking side of rugby and my vision.Have you always played scrum-half? I started off on the wing or at full-back but my father encouraged me to go to scrum-half. I wasn’t one of the biggest and looking down the line it was the best position for me.What do you like about the position? I just like being involved all the time. You have involvements with every single play, get your hands on the ball, and are mixing it with the forwards and backs.Who is your rugby hero? Aaron Smith is a big one for me. He’s just so accurate in everything he does and he makes it look easy.How did you get involved with the Ospreys? I’d moved from Maesteg Celtic to Bryncethin and came into the Bridgend District for U15s. I got picked up at 15 by the Ospreys and have been in the academy since. I train there Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, with a Wednesday game. They have helped me a lot with my game.FOR THE LATEST SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS, CLICK HEREHave you done any work with Rhys Webb?

Apopka Police Department hosting an “exchange zone”

Mama Mia Mama Mia Please enter your name here From the Apopka Police Department Public Information Office In a continuing effort to reduce opportunities for criminal activity, the Apopka Police Department has created an area at the police station for residents to conduct exchanges. The increase of face to face transactions from CraigsList, Facebook, LetGo, OfferUp and other online exchanges has also lead to an increase in robberies, thefts, and other crimes.“More and more, our citizens want a location they are comfortable with in order to conduct these types of transactions,” said Police Chief Mike McKinley, “I can’t tell you the number of people in our community that have asked about this.”Over the last year, the APD investigated a number of crimes associated with face to face transactions from online deals. Often the seller or buyer asks to meet in a closed lot or even at a residence in order to victimize an unsuspecting client. To combat this, APD has taken a lead by providing an area of the police parking lot, which is well lit and under camera surveillance, for the public to use.“We suspect that if one half of the transaction says, ‘let’s meet at the police parking lot,’ a criminal is less likely to want to go through with that transaction,” said Deputy Chief Randy Fernandez. “This should give our residents a better feeling of comfort about the deals they are conducting.”In addition to online purchases, the parking lot is also available for child custody exchanges for those parents looking for a comfortable place to exchange their children.The department encourages that in-person exchanges be made between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding holidays, when the department is open. While it is not the intent of the APD to provide police personnel or staff to witness any transaction in person, those utilizing the parking lot may call for an officer if they feel threatened or need any serial numbers of any merchandise checked. Department members will not, however, verify or validate the legitimacy of any transaction, item, the integrity of any product or goods, or legality of a sale. Nor will a member offer an opinion regarding any exchange. Officers and employees are not available to participate as official witnesses, give legal advice or settle disputes unless it becomes an emergency situation.Whether the public utilizes the department’s visitor parking lot or another location, persons engaging in on-line inspired transactions should bring a cell phone, ensure friends or family are aware of the exchange, not meet unknown persons alone, and refuse to conduct an exchange with someone who will not meet at the police department or another open public area. For safety reasons, NO exchange of weapons or firearms should occur on APD property.Mayor Joe Kilsheimer supports the idea and takes pride in the Apopka Police Department’s initiative regarding its involvement in the community adding,“Policing is not always about investigating crimes, but about preventing them,” he said. “The APD has always provided programs that ensure residents live in a safe and secure community.The Apopka Police Department is a full-service, accredited police agency with more than 150 employees including 108 sworn officers and staff. The APD supports the Crimeline program to aid in investigations and to foster safe and anonymous tips that lead to criminal arrests. You can help with these local cases – if you have relevant information, please call (800) 423-TIPS, go to www.crimeline.org, or e-mail [email protected] Apopka bulletins can be found at the APD website (www.apopkapolice.com); click on “Crimeline”. I see some cities are even allowing their residents packages to be delivered to the local police station, and allow the packages to be kept there, until their residents come pick them up, because so many people are at work and the UPS leaves the packages at their doorsteps, and the roving thieves are out to get the goods for themselves! They are allowing it during the holidays only. The roving thieves follow the UPS trucks around, and watch them deliver the packages to the doorsteps and leave them, and steal them.

Danny Cipriani given licence to thrill by coach Johan Ackermann

June 18, 2021

first_imgFriday Sep 7, 2018 Danny Cipriani given licence to thrill by coach Johan Ackermann Danny Cipriani served up a timely reminder of his playmaking ability by producing an outrageous pass on his Gloucester debut. The 30-year-old fly half found winger Charlie Sharples with a glorious 21-yard ball that soared over three Northampton players and left his teammate with the easiest of tasks to cross for the try. Replays showed he played the pass blind, sparking an outpouring of praise on social media. Some speculated that the pass went a good three yards forward, but the commentators were quick to ignore that as they heaped superlatives on Cipriani.It provided England boss Eddie Jones with plenty of food for thought. The World Cup is looming, England have displayed dreadful form of late and they really could do with a player of Cipriani’s playmaking quality and ability to turn a game with a flash of individual brilliance.He has endured a testing summer after being fined £2,000 and sentenced to community service for assault in a Jersey nightclub. But his talent is undeniable and it could become increasingly difficult for Jones to take the moral high road when he needs spark and thrust in his team. Read a review of betting websites and find market leading odds from reputable bookmakers, and you will see that England have fallen behind Ireland in the World Cup winner betting market. The All Blacks are the heavy favourites, but Ireland have gone in to 4/1, while the English have been pushed out to 7/1.A year ago, that seemed inconceivable, but England’s decline has been alarming. Jones reacted by reinstating Cipriani after a decade in the cold, with George Ford making way, and Cipriani is staking a strong case to keep the job on a permanent basis. He had a brilliant season at Wasps last time out, and you could see how badly they missed him in their laboured performance as they scraped a 21-20 win over unfancied Worcester. They have brought in Lima Sopoaga to replace him, but fans are already missing Cipriani.He was immense throughout Gloucester’s season opener against Northampton. He came up against another superstar fly-half as former Ospreys hero Dan Biggar made his debut for the visitors, but Cipriani came out on top.“He displayed tremendous vision and handwork, while his kicking was superb, leaving him at the heart of everything that was good about Gloucester’s performance,” said head coach Johan Ackermann.“Danny is backing himself in training, and it worked for him today.“All the players have a licence to play what they see. We didn’t speak about goals and where we want to be before he joined, we just said we want this club to be competitive, to play exciting rugby and to improve, and Danny was excited when he looked at the squad.“He believes his way of playing will suit my philosophy, and he is excited to give it a go. So far, so good.”Gloucester are now preparing for a huge west country derby against Bath, and they are clear underdogs. You can find around 3/5 on Bath, while Ackerman’s men are out at 6/4, but with Cipriani in inspired form they could well spring an upset.Bath are smarting from the 17-10 defeat they suffered in another derby against Bristol in their opener, and they will be desperate to make amends this weekend.If you check out the futures odds, Gloucester are now fourth favourites to win the title this season, behind only Saracens, Exeter and Wasps. They are as low as 10/1 with some bookmakers, while Bath are out at 33/1 and Bristol are trading at 150/1 with some sites.Gloucester, therefore, should feel no fear as they approach their trip to Bath, and it will be fascinating to see if Cipriani can conjure up some more sorcery.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Last year, after winning the same regional bee, she finished 41st at nationals out of 290-plus spellers.Saturday, the field thinned down to four spellers by the third round, before that group pushed steady through to the 17th round. ‘Innocuous’ knocked one speller from the stage there, then another tripped over ‘sportsy’ in the 30th round.When her opponent stumbled with ‘relieve’ in 34th round, Gundlapalli hit ‘wineskin’ to force what turned out to be the final, 35th round, where she spelled ‘valves’ to win the championship.“I was nervous,” the 11-year-old said of that 35th round and the chance to win the title, but adding that once she heard her word, she was confident. “I thought I had it.”Gundlapalli attributed her win to preparation and study, and said it was cool to see that work pay off. She said she really wanted to make another trip to Washington.“She worked really hard throughout the year,” said her father, Sai Gundlapalli. “She went last year, and I told her, ‘This is great, but in the long run there’s more important things.’ But she really wanted it and she went for it. It’s all her endeavor.“She really loves the spelling, and words. She likes the challenge of it, I think,” he added.

13-year-old who allegedly opened fire at Indiana school won’t be tried as adult

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(NOBLESVILLE, Indiana) — The 13-year-old who allegedly shot a classmate and teacher at Noblesville West Middle School in Indiana on May 25 will not be charged as an adult, according to the Hamilton County prosecuting attorney.“As a Prosecuting Attorney,” D. Lee Buckingham II said in a statement, “I do not make the laws applicable to criminal or juvenile cases. My office works diligently to seek justice and enforce the laws as they exist. Under current Indiana law, this case is not eligible to be heard in adult court despite the heinous or aggravated nature of the alleged acts and despite the serious harm caused.”An initial hearing on the case is scheduled for the morning of June 11, and a trial date is expected to be set at that time, according to the statement.Referring to a list of potential charges, the statement said a 13-year-old “can only be waived to adult court if the attempt to murder an individual or individuals is actually successful. In this case, due to the heroic and extraordinary efforts of many people, including teachers, a school nurse, the Noblesville Police Department School Resource Officer, and many other first responders and medical providers, thankfully, Jason Seaman and Ella Whistler survived.”Ella was shot seven times, her family said, after the alleged gunman arrived at school with two handguns. She was upgraded last week from critical to stable condition.Seaman, the teacher, was shot three times while tackling the shooter and has been hailed as a hero. He’s since been released from the hospital.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

first_imgAndrea Stewart-Cousins (Getty)UPDATED, Dec. 15 2020, 4:38 p.m.: The New York state legislature is a house divided when it comes to extending protections against eviction.The state Senate is pushing a blanket moratorium on all residential evictions for an indefinite period, according to sources, but the state Assembly opposes the measure.The move to block all residential evictions would be a departure from the legislature’s approach in recent months. Lawmakers have ceded control to Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who has preferred to extend existing legislation.The law governing residential evictions, the Tenant Safe Harbor Act, allows property owners to seek money judgments, rather than evictions, for non-payment cases. The protections the law grants expire in two weeks. But the spike in coronavirus cases across the state has pushed the Senate, which secured a Democratic supermajority in November’s election, to consider taking things much further.“It’s important we put a blanket moratorium in place that prevents all residential evictions,” said state Sen. Brian Kavanagh. “At a time when we’re curtailing so many activities, we certainly shouldn’t be letting eviction marshals come to people’s homes and forcibly remove them.”Read moreLawmakers mull action on evictions as rent relief expansion stallsLawmakers skip cancel rent in favor of more modest billsLandlords jarred by sudden drop in rent collection Share via Shortlink Full Name* TagsEvictionsReal Estate and PoliticsResidential Real Estate Message*center_img Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink According to sources involved in the negotiations, the senate is prepared to pass a universal eviction moratorium, the details of which are starting to come into focus. Two concrete options are bills which were proposed last summer, but have since stalled. One, sponsored by state Sen. Zellnor Myrie, would stop all evictions for one year after the end of the state’s declared emergency. Another would stop them for a shorter period.“A real eviction moratorium is necessary, especially as we approach alarmingly increasing numbers of Covid cases across the state,” said Myrie. “With 300,000 deaths and counting due to Covid-19, it’s abundantly clear that evictions harm the tenant, harm the public and don’t bring a single penny to property owners who need the relief.”Sources say the Senate has the votes to pass a measure — although it may not yet be written — and intends to do so by Jan. 1. The state Assembly, however, would prefer to extend and codify existing legislation limiting evictions for non-payment, which Cuomo extended until Jan. 31.Kerri Biché, a spokesperson for Assembly speaker Carl Heastie, said, “This is false. From our conversations, the Assembly and the Senate are in the same place on how to handle evictions.”Yesterday, in statements to reporters, Heastie raised the possibility of doing an extraordinary session before January, to address “hot button issues,” including revenue and an eviction moratorium.Separately, the Assembly is reportedly focused on a plan to raise revenue, despite Cuomo’s preference to wait for federal aid before imposing new taxes to fix the state’s yawning budget shortfall.The senate’s push for a universal moratorium on evictions, rather than a targeted program, has rankled property owners. Such a blanket measure, they argue, could give tenants who might otherwise pay rent the ability to skip it without facing consequences.“Any eviction is not good — we don’t want people homeless,” said Jay Martin, executive director of Community Housing Improvement Program, which represents property owners in New York City. Martin said that landlords prefer an approach which would prioritize protections for those who are “truly on the verge of homelessness.”Observers say it is likely the state legislature will reach an agreement by this Friday, Dec. 18, because legislation must be printed for several days before coming up for a vote.Waiting to pass a bill until after this week would give Cuomo the option to veto it automatically by letting the legislative session draw to a close before signing it.UPDATE: This story was updated to add a comment from Assembly speaker Carl Heastie’s spokesperson. Contact Georgia Kromrei Email Address*last_img read more
