Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares With the coronavirus outbreak affecting businesses throughout the UK, it’s difficult to determine what the best FTSE 100 shares to buy might be. Since the start of the year, we have seen several big companies collapse, proving that nothing is completely safe. If ever there was a time to be a cautious investor, it is surely now.However, it is not all bad news. The FTSE 100 index has fallen by roughly 19% in the year-to-date. I believe this has opened up an opportunity to buy shares in some of the best UK companies.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 most garage forecourts reopened, I thought now might be the best time to examine Auto Trader (LSE: AUTO) to see if it’s worth buying the FTSE 100 company’s shares.One of the best FTSE 100 shares to buy now?Warren Buffett likes to buy companies with a strong competitive edge — or moat — against its rivals. I’m not going to disagree with arguably the world’s greatest investor, so it tends to be a quality I seek out in shares too. In the past, some of the best FTSE 100 shares have been those well-protected against the competition.That’s why Auto Trader has got my attention. It’s the first place I look when I’m considering buying a car, and I’d hazard a guess and say that most other people would check its website too.Auto Trader’s share price has dropped by approximately 10% in the year-to-date. This makes the price-to-earnings ratio of the stock 24. The shares aren’t cheap, then. But are they worth buying?Time to buy Auto Trader shares?It’s been a difficult year for the motor marketplace. Uncertainty surrounding Brexit and what Auto Trader calls “significant environmental and technology-driven changes to the automotive industry” have been huge hurdles for the company. And that’s before we consider the devastating effects the coronavirus outbreak has had on FTSE 100 shares.Unsurprisingly, the closure of car showrooms had a negative effect on Auto Trader’s revenue. In fact, it stomached the blow and didn’t charge its retail customers for advertising during April and May, and offered them a 25% discount in June.What is surprising is the level of traffic the platform is receiving. In the first three weeks of June, Auto Trader had record levels of audience, with cross-platform visits up by 28% compared with the same period last year. With coronavirus fears putting people off public transport, buying a used car might be seen as a safer alternative.The company has proved its resilience in this crisis. To raise extra cash, the company issued new shares. This raised £183m.In addition to the business’s resilience, investors should be excited about its margins. Once a new customer is acquired, there is little in the way of additional capital outlay. In its full-year results at the end of March, the operating profit margin was reported to be 70%, up 1% on the prior year.With the decline in its share price, I think that Auto Trader shares could offer value for long-term FTSE 100 investors who are betting on the economy’s recovery. T Sligo has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Auto Trader.

Vilsack: China Living Up to Trade Deal

first_img SHARE Vilsack: China Living Up to Trade Deal Facebook Twitter Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack says China is making good on its promises in the phase one trade deal it signed with the U.S. last year.CNBC says Vilsack points out the agreement allows market conditions to determine how much it has to buy from American farmers. COVID-19 qualifies as a market condition that would legitimately impact how much China has to buy under the agreement.In the first year of the deal, China imported $100 billion of the U.S. goods agreed to in the deal; that’s 58 percent of the $173.1 billion-goal set in 2020. However, the secretary says he’s upbeat on Chinese progress.“I think they still have a few days to be able to meet the phase one, year one goal,” Vilsack says. “Whether they meet the exact amount, I think, is in question because of the pandemic.” Previous articleWinners From Hoosier Beef CongressNext articleUSTR Nominee Testifies Before Senate Finance Committee NAFB News Service Home Indiana Agriculture News Vilsack: China Living Up to Trade Deal By NAFB News Service – Feb 28, 2021 SHARE Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Can anyone be guaranteed that he will not be influenced? He may be following a particular track, which could be the right track. Media says no no this must be the track. He loses track and rounds up innocent”. “Is this welcome in a society governed by rule of law? The submission made is that this is part of investigative journalism. What is investigative journalism?To lay bare the truth”, the CJ reflected.The Chief Justice asked if there is any law that says that whatever investigation agency collected as evidence should be laid before the public.”Where is the obligation for the investigating officer to disclose evidence?”, he asked.”How does the Post Mortem report comes to the media unless of course it is disclosed? Should we lay down guidelines on these aspects?”, he further asked.He next commented :”Media says it is aiding the investigation. Most welcome. But go to the police under Sections 37/38 of the CrPC and give information to them”.The Chief Justice said that the court will consider the issues : whether parallel investigation by media would amount to “interference with the administration of justice” under Section 2(c) of the Contempt of Courts Act, 1971 and whether the court should lay down guidelines for media reporting on criminal investigation.”This is one area where we expect some arguments. We are not guided by any precedent. We are not shown with any precedent dealing with pre-chargesheet scenario”, the Chief Justice told the ASG.The bench said that it will also keep within its boundaries while deciding on the issues.The ASG has been asked to make submissions on the queries and the observations made by the bench. The court will next consider the case on November 6.Earlier in the day, the Senior Advocate Aspi Chinoy, appearing in the PIL filed by eight ex-officers of Maharashtra police, submitted that the Court has the power to lay down guidelines in the matter. He argued that the Central Government has failed to act against ‘trial by media’ by exercising its powers under the Cable TV Regulation Act. The self-regulation mechanism of the media has also failed. In such circumstances, Chinoy submitted, the court should step in to ensure that the right to free trial and the presumption of innocence are not undermined.”The Government has not taken any action over the past three months on the media trial(in SSRCase). Is this called the ‘robust system’? If they had acted, we would not have come here”, Chinoy submitted.During the previous hearings, the bench had made strong remarks against the pattern of reporting followed in the Sushant Singh Rajput case.Reports about previous hearings may be read below :’Asking Public About Who To Be Arrested Is Investigative Journalism?’ Bombay HC Asks Republic TV In SSR Media Trial Case ‘If You Become Investigator, Prosecutor & Judge, Why Are We Here?’ Bombay HC Expresses Concerns Over Media TrialMedia Highly Polarized Now; Journalists Were Responsible & Neutral In Past, Bombay High Court Says While Hearing SSR Media Trial Case’Self-Regulation Of Media Has Failed’, Says Bombay HC In Plea Against ‘Media Trial’ In SSR Case Next Storylast_img read more

Woman sentenced to 25 years in prison for poisoning husband’s drinking water with eye drops

first_imgsimpson33/iStock(CHARLOTTE, N.C.) — A South Carolina judge has sentenced a woman to 25 years in prison after she admitted to poisoning her husband by inserting eye drops into his drinking water.Lana Clayton pleaded guilty in a York County courthouse to voluntary manslaughter and tampering with food or drugs charges related to the July 21, 2018, killing of Steven Clayton. Lana Clayton, 53, admitted to cops that she placed droplets of eye drop liquid in her husband’s water glass starting two days before his death. Steven Clayton, 64, was believed to have originally died from natural causes; however, medical examiners found high levels of tetrahydrozoline, the chemical found in eye drops which constricts blood vessels, in his system during the autopsy.Deputy solicitor Willy Thompson told South Carolina Circuit Court Judge Paul Burch Thursday that Lana Clayton, who was a nurse for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, knew the eye drops were tasteless and odorless and would not be detected by her husband, according to Charlotte ABC affiliate WSOC. He added that when officers began to suspect foul play, Lana Clayton told them her husband put eye drops in his drinks all of the time.She was eventually arrested in September 2018 and charged with his killing. Solicitor Kevin Brackett told the judge that Lana Clayton had killed her husband for money. He claimed she burned his will and threw his phone in a lake so he couldn’t call for help, according to WSOC.At the hearing, Steven Clayton’s family and friends gave emotional testimony to the judge before the sentencing. His goddaughter, Lourdes Alvarez, held back tears and she urged the judge to punish Lana Clayton to the fullest extent of the law.“Lana has fooled a lot of people, please don’t let her fool you,” she said.Lana Clayton’s attorneys said their client had been a victim of sexual abuse in her past and that Steven Clayton “hit her, kicked her and choked her” during their five-year marriage. Lana Clayton told the judge that she put the drops in her husband’s drinks to make him sick and uncomfortable and didn’t intend on killing him.“I wanted him to leave me alone,” she told the judge.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

The Nassau Coliseum Will Reopen In April With Major Renovations

first_imgThe beloved Long Island arena Nassau Coliseum closed down in 2015, with the promise of new ownership and major renovations. Well, that promise has been fulfilled, as the Coliseum has now announced it’s first post-renovation concert, a sure-to-be awesome evening with hometown hero Billy Joel on April 5th. Joel actually played the venue’s final show when it closed last year, bringing along Paul Simon, Kevin James, and Governor Andrew Cuomo for surprise appearances in front of an excited but emotional audience.Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment, which runs the highly successful Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY, will lead the charge on the venue’s grand re-opening. CEO Brett Yormark promised to take a similar approach with the new Nassau Coliseum, saying “[t]he first couple of months we really want people to sample all the different types of programming that will take place — whether it’s world-class concerts, obviously, boxing, MMA, family shows and the like. We’re really going to showcase the diversification of our programming mix and give people a lot to think about. That was pretty much how we opened Barclays Center, and we’re going to do the same out there.”The new-and-improved Nassau Coliseum will seat 14,500 for concerts, 13,500 for basketball games and 13,000 for hockey games. Interestingly enough, the venue is will be versatile in its ability to host events of all sizes, with different configurations ranging from 4,000 to 16,000 people, depending on the event. Another intriguing piece of information is the Coliseum’s new “All Access Pass” membership program, which provides subscribers with lower-level seats to every event at the venue, along with a VIP entrance and a private club in the arena.Tickets to Billy Joel’s show on April 5th can be purchased at Ticketmaster.com Friday, October 14th, with a pre-sale for American Express holders starting on Thursday the 13th.In honor of the venue’s reopening, check out a few clips from a few of the many classic concerts that took place at the old Nassau Coliseum. Included below are full sets from Pink Floyd, David Bowie, and the Grateful Dead, with some Billy Joel and Phish thrown in there for good measure. Welcome back Nassau Coliseum!
