Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares 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. CORRECTION: This article originally stated that Harworth shares gives the company a valuation that is a little over its market capitalisation. This has been changed to correctly reflect that the valuation is a little over its NAV.It used to be the case that ethical investing was simply a matter of avoiding companies that did the most harm, such as tobacco and oil companies. But increasing awareness about a wide array of issues now means there is a greater emphasis on investing in companies that actually do good, from an environmental, social, and/or ethical perspective.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 the new breed of ethical investor in mind, I’ve found three investments that produce significant benefits to society and shareholders alike.Urban regenerationHarworth Group (LSE: HWG) is involved in the transformation of former industrial and brownfield sites into new housing and business parks. Focused on the north of England, the group typically acquires unused waste land and turns it – through detailed planning and remediation – into new communities with housing, shops, restaurants, bars, parks, and social facilities.As well as selling off engineered land with planning permission to housebuilders, the group also builds and manages its own business parks.The most notable of these are the Advanced Manufacturing Park in Yorkshire and the Logistics North site in Bolton, which are home to the likes of Rolls Royce, McLaren, and Amazon. More than 5,000 people are employed on these sites, and they are an important source of prosperity for the local economies.Impressively, Howarth has managed to do all of this profitably, and has increased its revenues from £13m in 2015, to £78m in 2018. Over the same period, the group’s net assets increased by almost 50%. The shares trade at around 14 times last year’s earnings, giving the company a valuation that is a little over its net asset value. To my mind this looks like good value.Solar powerNextEnergy Solar Fund (LSE: NESF) is a listed investment fund that invests in a portfolio of solar (photovoltaic) power assets. The fund’s investments are mainly in the UK and Italy, and at last count comprised 89 separate solar power installations.In the first half of the year, these installations produced enough energy to power 134,000 homes for six months, effectively displacing 131,000 tonnes of CO2. This is the equivalent amount of CO2 involved in the non-renewable production of the same amount of energy.The fund provides an attractive dividend yield of over 5%, which it aims to increase in line with inflation, and has provided annualised total returns of 10% since listing in 2014. The shares are valued at a slight premium to the fund’s net assets, but considering its recent growth record, I think this is a perfectly reasonable price to pay.Wind powerGreencoat UK Wind (LSE: UKW) is an investment fund that invests in UK-based wind farms. The fund has 35 wind farms after adding five in 2019 alone, and is committed to further expansion.Last year, the fund’s farms generated more than 1,000 GWh of electricity, leaving the fund well placed in an industry that is estimated to be worth £75bn by 2021.Net assets have more than doubled to over £1bn in the three years to 2018, pushing the share price up by more than 14% last year. There is also a 4.5% dividend yield, which looks fairly sustainable to me. I think these shares are ideal for those of us that want to see our investments impact society in a positive way. Not only do these investments achieve that, but I reckon they should also produce pretty good shareholder returns too. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Stop Veolia in Boston and Detroit!

first_imgThe following message from the four fired leaders of United Steelworkers Local 8751 in Boston was delivered to the Detroit MLK rally and march on Jan. 19.Detroiters march on MLK Day, Jan. 19.WW photo: Tachae DavisWe’re honored to bring greetings on Martin Luther King Jr.’s weekend. Our union for 40 years has sought to live the legacy of Dr. King. At the time of his assassination he was standing with sanitation workers and building for a Poor People’s March on Washington, D.C. Our union’s always been about more than just grievances and good wages and benefits. We’re being targeted because we are a political union that stands against racism.Our very history is tied up with the struggle against racism. Whether it was dealing with the rocks and bricks that were thrown at the buses with Black schoolchildren that were going into racist neighborhoods or dealing with our union being 98 percent people of color from the immigrant communities — Haitian, Cape Verdean, Asian, African American — we are united as one. We believe we are living the true legacy of real unionism.One of our mottos has been that “An injury to one is an injury to all.” Every union, everybody in Boston knows the record of Steelworkers Local 8751. For 40 years we haven’t lost anything. We never take the concessions they try to impose on unions. This is why the Veolia corporation, the latest company to run the privatized school transportation in Boston, is after us. They computerized the payroll system so only management can get in, and the result is wage theft. We’ve filed over 300 grievances, and they have refused to pay most of them. They made our insurance more expensive and took away benefits. They made long-term disability benefits almost impossible to access.They will keep breaking our contract until somebody stops them, and we’re going to stop them!Veolia was hired like a hired gun here, the same way as in Detroit. It’s in water, sewage, transportation and energy, but it really doesn’t produce anything. People in Detroit recognize that. What it really is hired to produce is cutbacks, austerity and union busting.Fighting Veolia in Boston, Detroit and everywhereThroughout the world Veolia is known for doing anything for profit, even some of the worst things. Like helping the Israeli government oppress the Palestinian people. Veolia operates a segregated rail line where only Jewish settlers ride one line and only Arab Palestinians ride another line in and out of the West Bank.Moreover, the very same banks that created the artificial financial crisis in Detroit are Veolia’s chief moneylenders.On the morning of Oct. 8, 2013, drivers in four different yards came into work and asked their boss for a meeting over outstanding issues. Jonathan Steketee, who the city has now hired to be transportation director, called the police instead of agreeing to meet with the drivers. They came with dozens of officers, as if it had been pre-planned, to all four yards and ordered all the workers to get off the property with their vehicles. Veolia illegally locked out the workers. They created the lie in the media, with the mayor’s assistance, that the drivers had gone on a wildcat strike.Veolia then went after the organizational infrastructure, suspending, out of 900 workers, four leaders, one from each yard. On Nov. 13, 2013, they thought that this union would fall apart when they fired us.Last year Brother Kirschbaum, founder of the union, was among some 300 supporters, including a father with a set of 18-month-old twins and people in wheelchairs. He was giving a peaceful update. But Veolia got the city to file trumped-up charges and he faces years in jail for felonious assault and trespass.Now it’s important to really own the legacy of the Civil Rights movement, which was uniting the rank and file to take on the bigots and racists, to build a united movement that can bring true justice in our important fights.Black Lives Matter. Black cities matter. Unions matter. Detroit matters to us, and we are honored to share these words knowing that our struggle matters to you.Andre Francois, Steve Gillis, Steve Kirschbaum and Gary MurchisonFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Students fail to report positive COVID-19 cases

first_imgFacebook Jacqueline Lambiase is still fighting for students ReddIt Renee is a journalism major. She is dedicated to improving her journalism skills to effectively and ethically inform others. printTCU reported a surge in COVID-19 cases last week, but university officials worry the situation may be worse because some students are failing to report positive test results.Total active student cases dropped to 415 on Monday from 444 on Friday. However, cases are still climbing, with 11 new cases added between Friday and Monday.In addition, almost 100 individuals have recovered since Friday. Students’ failure to share positive test results with TCU became clear early last week, when blanket quarantines were imposed on several Greek chapters.Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Kathy Cavins-Tull said some of the more than 40 case increases from Aug. 23 to Aug. 24 were a result of large, off-campus gatherings. “If we don’t know that there’s spread here, we don’t know how to control it,” Cavins-Tull said.The rapid increase in cases has started to exhaust some of TCU’s resources, such as isolation beds. In her email Thursday, Cavins-Tull reported the availability for the beds was 42%. In addition, if cases continue to rise, the university will be forced to move to distance learning.  “It’s my job to be sure that one, we’re taking care of our students and their health and safety is my first priority, and also we’re accountable to the health department to try to control and maintain health and safety on our campus,” she said.Under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), health information can’t be used for purposes not directly related to a person’s care without the patient’s permission. TCU has asked students to report positive test results using the COVID-19 self-report hotline.TCU is the latest in a series of universities across the country dealing with a spike in cases as students return to campus and gather in large groups. For example, at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, outbreaks emerging from a party hosted by a fraternity contributed to the school’s decision to move to fully online instruction. After an email from Cavins-Tull saying TCU “literally cannot keep up with the pace of the spread,” Chancellor Victor Boschini asked students to take measures to slow the case increases.

We made them from handkerchiefs by tying strings to each of the four corners and tying the ends to some small objects, usually from the tool box, like nuts and bolts. We would hold the handkerchief in the middle with our fingertips and swing it back and forth to get velocity and then fling it into the air. Gravity would right the handkerchief parachute and it would float slowly to the ground. Sometimes, we would get on top of the chicken house and throw the parachute into the air from way up there. It was amazing to watch the parachute drift to the ground.Daddy was a pilot in the Ferry Command in World War II. He flew planes to Alaska for the Russians to pick up. He often told me stories about being snowed in for a week at the time. I was so fascinated by those stories that I played pilot a lot.My plane was a high limb in chinaberry tree and I was feared more than the Red Barron. I could hit a chicken in the head with a clump of chinaberries from my lofty perch and no one my size dared come around when I was in the cockpit. If they did, they would get blown to smithereens.

I’d dress myself in all of that and fly off on my plane.One day, I got the idea to open Daddy’s parachute and float myself down from the roof of the chicken house. Now, I didn’t know how much silk was in a parachute. Much more silk than a ten-year-old needed to float from the top of the chicken house. It was enough white silk to cover the roof of the chicken house like a blanket of snow and it did.The wind got under the silk and it began to rise in the air and Mama saw it ballooning up and came running.I learned a very valuable lesson that day. You cannot put a silk parachute back into its pack. You cannot even put half of a silk parachute back into its pack.
