Manika Premsingh | Sunday, 15th November, 2020 Enter Your Email Address Click here to get access to our presentation, and learn how to get the name of this ‘double agent’! The UK economy just grew by a huge 15.5%. Which FTSE 100 stocks should I buy now? UK’s economy grew by 15.5% in the July–September quarter. This is the fastest rate seen since 1995. At any other time, this alone, in my view, would be enough to send the bulls charging back into the stock markets. The mood’s indeed bullish, to be sure. The FTSE 100 index has been gaining ground through November.How much of that is because of the recent GDP report, however? Not very much, I’m afraid. The Biden bounce and hopes of finally getting past Covid-19 with successful vaccine trials had already improved investor sentiment. The GDP improvement hasn’t been able to add much fuel to the rally, because, despite the super positive headline number, there’s plenty to be cautious about still. 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…What’s the economy saying, really?The first, is that UK GDP levels are still below the pre-coronavirus levels. Second, double-digit growth was driven by the easing in lockdowns. As business resumed, the GDP numbers naturally followed. It’s what economists like to call ‘base effect’. It’s easier to achieve high growth on a low base. And easy for growth to look subdued on a high base. Third, the standalone numbers for September show that growth slowed down to a trickle. Fourth, with the lockdown in England underway in November, the final quarter of 2020 will be affected too. And finally, there’s still a lot of government support for jobs. Once this public spending starts tapering, the real economic impact of Covid-19 will become clearer. It could be far less than we fear, or more. We don’t know. And we won’t until at least the second quarter of 2021, when the furlough scheme is withdrawn.How should I invest in FTSE 100 stocks now? With the numbers a mixed bag, there’s both a pessimist and optimist in me. I think the way to invest in FTSE 100 stocks now, is to pacify both. Strangely enough, there are some stocks that cater to the impulses of both in these unique times. Consider healthcare stocks, for instance. Companies like AstraZeneca and Hikma Pharmaceuticals have gained this year as defensive plays when the bears took control of the stock markets. Yet, the optimist in me still sees value in these stocks even after the mood has turned positive. This is because, one, the rising tide of investments has further improved their share price performance in the recent days. AstraZeneca continues to boast of a high price-to-earnings ratio of over 45 times. Hikma Pharmaceuticals’ share price is near all-time highs. Second, Pfizer has a lead in the race for vaccine development. But other companies are playing their role too. AstraZeneca is developing its own Covid-19 vaccine along with the University of Oxford. This is expected to be far more affordable than the Pfizer vaccine. Hikma Pharmaceuticals has a contract to manufacture medication for Covid-19 patients developed by US-based Gilead Sciences. Third, even before Covid-19, both companies had strong credentials. AstraZeneca was one of the most expensive FTSE 100 stocks even a year ago. Hikma Pharmaceuticals too, has shown strong share price growth as well as revenue increase. I think these stocks continue to be long-term winners, irrespective of where the economy is at.

Left to right: Amina Baraka, Iyaluua Ferguson, Suzanne Ross, Larry Holmes, Amiri Baraka and Herman Ferguson demand freedom for Mumia Abu-Jamal, Harlem, 2008.WW photo: Anne PrudenJan. 10 — The name Amiri Baraka has been known to me since my teens, when I was a member of the Black Panther Party.His name was often linked with that of Dr. Maulana Karenga (credited with founding Kwanzaa) of the Los Angeles-based US Organization, which began as competition with the L.A. Black Panthers for influence in Black L.A., and evolved into a deadly feud between enemies, aided and abetted by the maliciousness of the F.B.I.But Baraka posed an intriguing figure, for he radiated both love and rage, funneled through his poems, which pulsated with revolutionary fire.He was born in 1934 in Newark, N.J., as Everett LeRoy Jones, and became a rising star of the Beat Era in the East Village of New York.When he joined the U.S. Air Force, he found a revelation in books, while traveling in Chicago. He saw a bookstore with a green door (called the Green Door) and within he had an epiphany. In his 1984 autobiography, [“The Autobiography of LeRoi Jones/Amiri Baraka”] he wrote: “Something dawned on me, like a big light bulb over my noggin. The comic strip idea lit up my mind at that moment as I stared at the books. I suddenly understood that I didn’t know a hell of a lot about anything. What it was that seemed to me then was that learning was important. I’d never thought that before.” (pp. 343-344)That moment spurred him on to seriously read, study and enlarge his understanding, not for a grade, but for the simple “joy” of learning. He gorged himself on books on all kinds of subjects — poetry, history, statistics and beyond.In July 1960, he would hit another “turning point.” He went to Cuba. In his 1966 essay, “Cuba Libre,” he recounts his reaction to harsh criticism of the U.S. Empire, saying, “I’m a poet … what can I do? I write, that’s all. I’m not even interested in politics.”A Mexican poet, Jaime Shelley, responded acidly, “You want to cultivate your soul? In the ugliness you live in, you want to cultivate your soul? Well, we’ve got millions of starving people to feed, and that moves me enough to make poems out of.”That trip radicalized him and his poetry, and spurred him on to Black cultural nationalism, revolutionary nationalism, Marxism and the building of Black community organizations.The impacts of learning and Cuba kept him seeking the correct synthesis of revolutionary politics to transform society.Although lesser known, he was a music critic of considerable insight. His love of jazz was deep; even spiritual. But he also loved RnB (rhythm & blues), gospel and blues, as cultural expressions of various stages of Black life. He also dug rap, it being at bottom, poetry; but he condemned the corporate control over its production and distribution.Of rap, he wrote: “That’s why Rap delighted me so and still does (even though now it’s been widely co-opted by Uncle Bubba and the Mind Bandits) because I could see that some of what came out of us had taken root. An open popular mass-based poetry. It arrived, that’s why the corporations moved so swiftly to “cover” and co-opt. Why the disappeared Grand Master Flash and Afrika Bambaata, accused Prof. Griff of the Big A-S and brought in fresh rap like Two Live Crew. Gangsta rap was also brought in to exchange political agitation with ignorant braggadocio and thuggish imbecility, justifying the state n——r-you annihilation program.” [p.502]Amiri Baraka and his wife, Amina, were good friends of MOVE’s Pam Africa, and spent time together when she was in Newark.But Baraka put his best self in his poems, which revealed his wit and his anger. In his 1979 poem “In the Tradition,” he has a line that said it all: “n——r music’s about all you got, and you find it much too hot.”Amiri Baraka was 79.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
SHARE By Eric Pfeiffer – Jul 15, 2019 Details Behind the Indiana Disaster Designation Request Previous articleHazlett Helping Opioid Fight from the White HouseNext articleDetails Behind the Indiana Disaster Request on the HAT Tuesday Morning Edition Eric Pfeiffer Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Details Behind the Indiana Disaster Designation Request SHARE Facebook Twitter Details Behind the Indiana Disaster Designation RequestGovernor Eric Holcomb announced on Friday that he has requested a disaster designation from USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue due to losses caused by flooding and excessive rain this planting season.Indiana FSA Executive Director Steve Brown said, “All counties submitted a county emergency board report to the state emergency board, and we met on Friday. 88 counties thought they met the threshold of the disaster designation requirements which require at least a 30 percent loss in a crop in a county.”If Secretary Perdue approves the request, it will make emergency loans available to producers in those counties. Brown said he and his office have been working with Governor Holcomb’s office for about a month to explain the process and where things stood. Some states issued their disaster designations earlier, but Brown says he thinks Holcomb went about this the right way, waiting until data was collected and submitting it for the necessary counties.“When I outlined the process and how it works, I know the secretary likes to have data and hard proof when these requests are made. I think the governor chose the accurate way to do this and we have done our due diligence.”Four counties were excluded from the request for not meeting the 30% crop loss threshold. Those counties include Benton, Rush, Shelby, and Brown’s home county, Warren.“I’ve been out there driving through the areas and the crops look pretty good out in that area. They were very fortunate. They got the crops planted a lot earlier than a lot of other places and continued to see rainfall. Not that they’re perfect, but the county emergency board didn’t think they met the threshold and after my viewing I can’t disagree with them.”Brown did say though that should conditions change, and a 30% loss occurs, those counties can still apply for the disaster designation later on.
