Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors.center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares When the company was accused of paying its suppliers below the minimum wage to manufacture clothing, the Boohoo share price crumbled. From an all-time high of around 426p on June 17, the stock fell to a low of 212p a month later. However, in the weeks since, the Boohoo share price has staged a healthy recovery. It now looks if the shares are on track to return to their all-time high. 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…Boohoo share price recovery Back in June, a Sunday Times investigation claimed workers at a factory packing Boohoo’s clothes were paid below minimum wage and suffered poor working conditions.These relations shocked the market. They also prompted the company’s third-largest shareholder, Standard Life Aberdeen, to sell its holdings. Boohoo has since announced an independent review of its supply chain. It is planning to announce the findings alongside its half-year results at the end of September. In the meantime, it has been reported that the authorities have found no signs of poor working conditions at the company’s suppliers.These developments have helped restore investor confidence in the business and the Boohoo share price. It would also appear that the scandal has done little to dent the group’s appeal to customers. According to my research, away from the financial press, the backlash against the business has been minimal. Growth potentialThe Boohoo share price surged to an all-time high this year as the e-commerce market boomed. I don’t think this trend is going to come to an end any time soon. What’s more, ethical considerations aside, over the past five years, Boohoo has shown that it knows how to navigate this market. As such, if you are happy to look past the allegations listed above, I think the Boohoo share price could be an excellent long-term investment.Over the past five years, the company has gone from strength to strength. It is highly cash generative and has recently been using this cash to snap up bankrupt brands at bargain prices.These efforts should help improve the group’s growth in the years ahead. By using its online experience, and infrastructure, Boohoo has the potential to make a success of these brands by leveraging its e-commerce experience.I think many of these businesses struggled to adapt to the online environment, which is why they ultimately failed. Boohoo has proven over the past decade that it can navigate this environment successfully and use its marketing clout to improve sales when needed. The bottom lineThe recent allegations levied against the company hurt the Boohoo share price. However, the organisation now seems to be moving past these problems. If management can put this episode behind the it, the stock could return to its all-time high. It may even be able to surpass this level as bolt-on acquisitions help the business grow its top and bottom lines.  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.

Carl Hayman – Toulon, Newcastle and New Zealand

first_imgTAGS: Newcastle Falcons CH: I used to have a fear of sharks, but that was from watching too many Jaws movies when I was young. I’ve been surfing for ten years so I’ve got over that.RW: Do you surf in Newcastle?CH: There’s a group of boys who try to get out in the North Sea when we have time off, although thick wetsuits are key.RW: If your house was on fire, what three things would you save?CH: Apart from whoever else was in the house, if I was going for personal items it would have to be this old sweatshirt I like to wear. It’s from where I was born and has a ‘Surf Highway 45’ emblem on it. I’ve had it for ten to 12 years, but it’s still in one piece. It was a dark green but is heading towards a lighter shade of grey. After that, I’d save my computer because it’s got all my photos on it and my last item would be my wallet.RW: What would you do if you were Prime Minister for the day?CH: Look at MPs’ spending! A day’s not long enough to make too many changes so I’d probably just enjoy cruising around in all the cars and helicopters – making the most of that.RW: Who’d you like to be stuck in a lift with?CH: Out of interest, Arnold Schwarzenegger. He’s had an interesting life, going from films to politics, so it would be good to have a chat. I’m a big fan of his movies and the cheesy one-liners he comes out with. He’d also be able to rip the doors off and get us out.RW: What would you like to achieve outside of rugby?CH: The plan when I finish rugby is to start farming. I’d like to have a self-reliant lifestyle with a veggie garden and all that carry-on.Check out his profile for New ZealandWeird, yet funny interview… LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Carl Hayman leading the HakaRugby World caught up with the famous All Black while he was still at Newcastle Falcons to talk about pre-season training, the ‘pain train’, and living the ‘Good Life’ after rugby. RUGBY WORLD: So how has pre-season training gone?CARL HAYMAN: We trained with the local American Football and basketball teams. It’s good to keep things varied. The American Football guys were good on footwork, changing direction and so on. It gives you a different perspective. I certainly learned a few things.RW: There’s a lot of changes in the Falcons squad – is everyone settling in well?CH: Because there are a lot of new guys it makes it easier – everyone is in the same boat. With 15-odd new players, even for the guys already here it’s almost like starting over again.RW: Are you enjoying the role of captain?CH: It’s reasonably new to me, but I’ve enjoyed it so far. It presents its own challenges, but with the amount of new guys coming in, it’s a fresh start for the Falcons and I’m excited about it.RW: You’ll be looking for a better start than last season…CH: Hitting the ground running is crucial. We’ve got to get points on the board early. I hope we don’t leave it until February to start playing good rugby.RW: Are you now used to the Geordie accent?CH: I realised I was used to it when Jimmy Gopperth couldn’t understand a few locals and I could. I’ve even started picking up a few Geordie words. My vocab’s been extended! I use things like ‘Howay man’ – I’m not sure what the local boys think.RW: What’s the funniest thing you’ve seen on the pitch?CH: Off the top of my head, Tim Swinson running up the pitch last year shouting: ‘Here comes the pain train’. The funniest thing about it was that he was just chasing up a kick! He received a bit of ribbing about that.Phobias, Terminator and Life after rugby…RW: If you could have one superpower, what would it be?CH: Flying. I’d start off by flying to training to beat the rush hour and work my way from there. It would make the game quite interesting – no one could tackle you.RW: Do you have any phobias?

Prop Luke Cowan-Dickie flick pass sets up try for England U20 vs France U20

first_imgMonday Feb 25, 2013 Prop Luke Cowan-Dickie flick pass sets up try for England U20 vs France U20  England beat France 40-10 in their Under-20’s Six Nations game at Sixways at the weekend. England led just 6-3 at halftime, but found their feet in the second half as France tired. Here’s a quick look at two of the best tries from the high scoring game. With ten minutes left in the game England lifted the tempo and captain Jack Clifford got his second try, thanks in part to a superb tap on from prop Luke Cowan-Dickie. Wing Henry Purdy completed the effort later on, scoring in the corner after a good run from Ben Howard.Both tries were uploaded by the official RFU channel, and after a few requests for another look at the Cowan-Dickie flick pass, we thought such a good piece of skill needed to be shared. After three matches played, Wales top the U20 Six Nations table with 6 points, followed by England and Scotland on 4 points, then Ireland and France on 2 points. Italy are yet to win a game.ADVERTISEMENT 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.

World Pork Expo Showcases Top Pork Priorities Including Prop 12, Facility…

first_img SHARE World Pork Expo Showcases Top Pork Priorities Including Prop 12, Facility Line Speeds Home Indiana Agriculture News World Pork Expo Showcases Top Pork Priorities Including Prop 12, Facility Line… Facebook Twitter SHARE Previous articleUSDA to Invest More Than $4 Billion to Strengthen Food SystemNext articleWorld Pork Expo is Back! Indiana Pork is There Hoosier Ag Today The urgent administration appeal of a recent federal district court ruling striking down faster harvest facility line speeds, legal action on California’s Proposition 12 and expanded export market access are among top U.S. pork producer priorities at this week’s World Pork Expo. Hosted by the National Pork Producers Council (NPPC), World Pork Expo is the world’s largest pork-specific trade show.“After a two-year absence, we’re thrilled for the return of Work Pork Expo, showcasing the latest developments in the U.S. pork industry,” said NPPC President Jen Sorenson, communications director of Iowa Select Farms in West Des Moines, Iowa. “U.S. pork producers have a number of near-term challenges and priorities, including a federal court ruling that, if implemented later this month, will cause tremendous harm to hog farmers across the country. We need the Biden administration to quickly intervene and prevent this disastrous scenario from becoming reality.”The federal court’s decision—which takes effect on June 29—struck down a provision of USDA’s New Swine Inspection System (NSIS) allowing for faster harvest facility line speeds. NSIS, initiated during the Clinton administration and evaluated at five pilot plants over 20 years, was approved for industry-wide adoption in 2019. NSIS modernized an inspection system that had remained unchanged for more than 50 years. At a time when the United States is seeking to increase much-needed pork harvest capacity, the court order will reduce plant capacity at six plants running at NSIS line speeds by as much as 25 percent. Smaller hog farmers will disproportionately bear the brunt of the court’s impact, undermining pork industry competition.Last week, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Reps. Jim Hagedorn (R-Minn.) and Dusty Johnson (R-S.D.) initiated letters—currently circulating for additional congressional signatories—to the U.S. Departments of Agriculture and Justice, urgently requesting the administration appeal the ruling to prevent the tremendous financial harm to American hog farmers.Additionally, NPPC is challenging California’s Proposition 12. Set to go into effect next year, it will impose arbitrary animal housing standards that reach far outside the state’s borders to farms across the country, while driving up costs for both pork producers and consumers. NPPC and the American Farm Bureau Federation have filed a lawsuit in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, asking the court to strike down Proposition 12 as unconstitutional under the dormant commerce clause. Oral arguments were held in mid-April and a court ruling is anticipated by mid-summer.Compliance with Proposition 12 will cost individual farmers millions. The ones least able to bear that cost will be small family farms. Loss of this market will put many hog farmers out of business, ultimately leading to further industry consolidation. Despite requiring final implementation rules by Sept. 1, 2019, just two weeks ago the state issued its proposed rules. NPPC plans to file comments by the July 12 deadline.Other near-term priorities for U.S. pork producers include:Expanding export markets, crucial to the success of the U.S. pork industry. NPPC is focused on more immediate export opportunities in the Philippines and Vietnam, major pork-consuming nations dealing with African swine fever outbreaks in their domestic herds;Addressing agriculture labor reform. Current agriculture visa programs are designed for seasonal agriculture and do not meet the needs of pork production and other livestock agriculture. NPPC is urging Congress to address labor reform that both opens the H-2A visa program to year-round labor, without a cap, and provides legal status for agricultural workers already in the country; andContinuing to advocate for measures to ensure foreign agriculture diseases remain outside the country. NPPC is requesting congressional appropriations to strengthen biosecurity defense at our borders.Source: National Pork Producers Council news release By Hoosier Ag Today – Jun 9, 2021 Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Somali journalist killed in Mogadishu by bomb planted in her car

first_img Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns the targeted killing of national radio and TV journalist Hindiya Mohamed in Mogadishu today.Mohamed, who worked for Radio Mogadishu and Somali National TV, was badly wounded by a bomb planted in her car and died from her injuries in Madina Hospital a few hours later.No organization has claimed the bombing but it had all the hallmarks of an operation by the Islamist rebel militia Al Shabaab. This group had already targeted journalists from the national media of the Somali State against which it is fighting. “We are appalled to learn of yet another journalist’s death in Somalia,” said Cléa Kahn-Sriber, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “The government must do everything possible to arrest those responsible for such attacks and bring them to justice. The impunity reigning in Somalia just encourages murders of this kind. Our thoughts are with Hindiya Mohamed’s family,especially her children, which has already suffered so much.”Mohamed’s husband, Liban Ali Nur, a journalist who also worked for national television, was killed in a suicide bombing in September 2012 at The Village, a Mogadishu restaurant frequented by media personnel. The bombing was claimed by Al Shabaab at the time, which said it had intended to kill journalists.Mohamed is the 38th journalist to be killed in connection with their work in Somalia since 2010. Ranked 172nd out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index, Somalia is Africa’s deadliest country for media personnel.

The four little girl dolls are the product of a company called Children of America, a small company with a mission to “provide little girls with dolls that were representative of their own race and ethnicity.”Former educator Mary Eubanks founded the company in 2006 to not only to celebrate the diversity of America, but to make dolls that are “beautiful, durable, and affordable.”“We didn’t want any child to be denied the pleasure of our dolls because the cost was prohibitive,” said Eubanks, through her website.Eubanks, who grew up in Atoka, a small town in Tennessee, had very few dolls of her own as a child, and discovered that world as an adult.As she roamed the local shops and doll shows looking for treasures, she noticed that there were few dolls of color. Whether in a major retail chain or a boutique shop it seemed to Eubanks that the market wasn’t offering dolls that accurately reflected the diversity of America.Each of the Children of America dolls tells her own story: Andrea, who is Hispanic, is one of three children. Her father is a carpenter and her mother is a teacher. Brianna, who is African-American, loves sports and music, and her goal is to one day be a singer or a doctor like her father. Ashley, who is Caucasian, has an older brother with whom she has traveled around the country. She loves video games, and hopes to design her own games some day. Mia, who is Asian-American, also has a younger brother, and her mother owns an art store. She loves working in the store with her younger brother.“As an educator,” said Eubanks,“I know that cultural representation is important for the development of identity and self-esteem. I had little time to advocate for cultural diversity in the doll industry while I pursued my career in education, but it was something that I thought about a lot. If children are taught at an early age that they are all right, not only will they respect their own uniqueness and looks, but the uniqueness and looks of others as well.”Once retired from a long education career, Eubanks dove headlong into doll manufacturing, researching dolls, fashion, and actual doll production. She begantaking doll-making classes to lean the ins and outs of the business from some of the industry leaders, finally launching the company eight years ago.“Each doll is designed to teach young ladies that they are uniquely different and very special,” says Eubanks with pride.Move over, Barbie.Children of America Dolls are available at coadolls.com 5 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Top of the News Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenalast_img read more

Former President George W. Bush ‘honored’ to eulogize John McCain

first_imgJohn Tlumacki/The Boston Globe via Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Former President George W. Bush has accepted an invitation to deliver a eulogy at the funeral of Sen. John McCain at the National Cathedral and is “honored to have been asked to speak,” Bush spokesman Freddy Ford confirmed to ABC News on Sunday. Former first lady Laura Bush will also be in attendance.McCain, a Vietnam War hero with more than 35 years of public service who became one of the most distinctive figures in modern American politics, died Saturday at his home in Arizona at the age of 81 after a long battle with cancer.The New York Times reported on Saturday night that McCain requested that both Bush and former President Barack Obama — each of whom has run against the Arizona senator in presidential campaigns — be invited to deliver eulogies at the senator’s funeral. The Times also reported Saturday that while Vice President Mike Pence was invited to attend the funeral, President Donald Trump, who has had a tumultuous relationship with McCain, was not invited.ABC News has reached out to the White House and Obama’s representatives, but a request for comment was not immediately returned.McCain has a long history of reaching out to lawmakers across the political aisle to pass major legislation in the Senate and of overcoming political differences. The Arizona senator lost to fellow Republican George W. Bush in the 2000 GOP primary for president.Bush paid tribute to McCain on Saturday, writing, “Some lives are so vivid, it is difficult to imagine them ended. Some voices are so vibrant, it is hard to think of them stilled. John McCain was a man of deep conviction and a patriot of the highest order.”Obama, who defeated McCain in the 2008 presidential election, offered his condolences to the McCain family and shared a heartfelt tribute to the Arizona senator in a statement on Saturday.“John McCain and I were members of different generations, came from completely different backgrounds, and competed at the highest level of politics,” he wrote. “But we shared, for all our differences, a fidelity to something higher — the ideals for which generations of Americans and immigrants alike have fought, marched, and sacrificed.McCain’s fellow Arizona senator, Republican Jeff Flake, said on This Week Sunday that McCain’s greatest lesson is “to forgive” and “to see the good in his opponents.”Flake added that we can honor McCain’s legacy by “seeing the good in our opponents, by being quick to forgive, by realizing that there’s something more important than ourselves, to put service over and above our self interest.” Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
