However, the Prime Minister’s spokesman yesterday described the strike plans as reckless, adding: “The public would not think this is a responsible way of conducting industrial action to choose this particular day for a strike.”LFB chairman Brian Coleman disputed the union’s claims, saying yesterday: “There are no cuts, no job losses, this is about reducing a 15 hour night shift, adding those hours to the day shift and doing more community safety work and firefighter training.”FBU general secretary Matt Wrack said workers had no choice but to strike, and added in a statement: “There’s still nearly two weeks for the London Fire Brigade to get this right. Show a little respect for your firefighters.”London mayor Boris Johnson said there are contingency plans in place to deal with further strikes. last_img read more

Source: Getty Images Nadia Yaqub | Tuesday, 8th December, 2020 | More on: GGP center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Greatland Gold (LSE: GGP) shares are trading at an all-time high. The stock was just 2p at the beginning of the year and has rallied to its current price of 32p. That’s an increase of 1,500% in less than 12 months! With such gains, no wonder Hargreaves Lansdown investors are snapping up the shares.The question I now ask myself is what’s behind this rally and is it likely to continue? The share price growth of Greatland Gold is tempting and as a long-term investor I’m starting to think buying it is a great idea.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…Behind the Greatland Gold share price rallyThe AIM-listed company has had a phenomenal 2020. In September 2016, Greatland Gold purchased the Havieron deposit as an early-stage exploration project. This has been a complete game-changer for the firm.Greatland Gold shares have rallied on the back of positive drilling results from the project. And it also has other key prospects projects that look promising.The gold rushThe price of gold has had an excellent run in 2020. The uncertainty of the coronavirus crisis led to investors buying the safe-haven asset as a store of value and hedge against inflation. With the miner having had a series of drilling successes, investors have been snapping up the shares on the back of the mini gold rush.Even Warren Buffett, the gold bear, converted to the asset as his company, Berkshire Hathaway, purchased shares in Barrick Gold. This move was completely unexpected by investors and sent strong signals about the precious metal to the market.Joint venturesThe trouble with Greatland Gold though, is that it’s a small mining company, which needs cash to continue its mining exploration. The success of the Havieron project has been due to its partnership with Newcrest.In March 2019, Greatland Gold signed a Farm-in Agreement with Newcrest to explore the Havieron gold-copper project. The first part of the joint venture was to expand and speed up the exploration of this deposit.Following the success of the first stage, Newcrest and Greatland Gold have entered into a series of additional agreements to accelerate the exploration of the Black Hills and Paterson Range East licenses. Newcrest has also provided GGP with a $50m loan to cover operational costs up to the completion of a feasibility study.The outlookThese new agreements are positive news for the business as it allows it to speed up its development and continue to expand projects. It should boost the share price as it removes uncertainty hanging over the business.But one thing to note is that mining exploration costs a lot of money. Although Greatland Gold is supported by Newcrest, it’s still loss-making. I normally invest in proven, profitable companies with a simple business model. But on this occasion I’m willing to consider this stock.Miners listed on the UK’s junior market are typically riskier than FTSE 100 shares. For investors who don’t mind taking on some risk, like me, I think Greatland Gold makes a good speculative purchase.

Should I buy DraftKings stock after Hindenburg’s short report?

first_img US sports betting company DraftKings (NASDAQ: DKNG) is a stock I’ve had my eye on for a while. The US is in the process of legalising sports betting and DKNG looks like it could be a good way to capitalise on the growth story.Yesterday, DraftKings’ share price took a hit after Hindenburg Research published a scathing report on the company and said it was shorting the stock. Has this short-selling attack provided a buying opportunity for me? Or should I steer clear of the stock after this report? Let’s take a look at the investment case for DraftKings.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…DraftKings stock: the bull caseBefore I look at Hindenburg’s report, I want to discuss some of the reasons why I was thinking about buying DraftKings stock. The first is that the US sports betting market looks set for strong growth in the years ahead. Up until recently, sports betting in the US was illegal in most states. However, after a Supreme Court ruling in 2018, any state can now legalise this form of betting.Already over 20 states have legalised it. Many more are likely to do so in the near future. This should provide tailwinds for companies that operate in the industry such as DraftKings. By 2025, US sports betting revenue is projected to hit $8bn, up from projected revenue of around $3bn this year.The second reason is that DraftKings is generating very strong revenue growth. Over the last two years, revenue has risen from $226m to $615m. This year, Wall Street analysts expect the company to generate revenue of $1.17bn. This top-line growth indicates that the group has a lot of momentum right now.Hindenburg’s report on DKNGAfter Hindenburg’s report, I’m a little bit more apprehensive about buying DraftKings stock. In its report, entitled ‘DraftKings: A $21 Billion SPAC Betting It Can Hide Its Black Market Operations’, the short seller says: Edward Sheldon has no position in any shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro.

Edward Sheldon, CFA | Wednesday, 16th June, 2021 | More on: DKNG It believes DraftKings has “systematically skirted the law and taken elaborate steps to obfuscate its black market operations.” “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares It’s worth noting that DraftKings has responded to the short attack by saying it conducted a thorough review of SBTech’s business practices and was comfortable with the findings.Still, I think a degree of caution is warranted towards DKNG stock after this report. Generally speaking, short sellers do their research.Other risksMoving away from the report, there are a couple of other issues that concern me about DraftKings stock. One is the valuation. Currently, the company has a market-cap of around $20bn. That means the forward-looking price-to-sales ratio is about 17. That’s high.Another issue is that the company is still unprofitable. Last year, it posted a net loss of $844m. Finally, DraftKings is likely to face intense competition from rivals such as Penn National Gaming, FanDuel, and William Hill. This adds risk to the investment case.DraftKings: my move nowWeighing everything up, I’m going to keep DKNG on my watchlist for now. The stock certainly looks interesting. However, the risks are a bit too high for me at present Enter Your Email Addresscenter_img DraftKings’ merger with SBTech in 2020 brings “exposure to extensive dealings in black-market gaming, money laundering and organised crime.” Industry experts and competitors have questioned the viability of DraftKings’ model of aggressively burning cash on promotion and marketing to acquire customers.  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.

The likelihood is that they will qualify for the playoffs despite not winning District 8A-4.In the latest rankings before the Oak Ridge game, Apopka was the #6 seed in the 8A-Region 1 standings, but the win over Oak Ridge could vault them into the #5 slot.The Blue Darters put the game out of reach early-on with three first-quarter touchdowns and a 22-0 lead. Davis-Hamilton opened the scoring with an 8-yard touchdown run only two minutes into the game and then scored on a two-point conversion run to give the Blue Darters an 8-0 lead. Then after the Pioneers punted, Brown scored on a 3-yard run which gave Apopka a 16-0 lead after a two-point conversion run by Cornelius Williams.With 1:37 left in the quarter, Jackson Darlington threw a short pass to tight end Jalen Carter who broke a tackle and outran the Oak Ridge defense to score on a 40-yard pass reception.The Pioneers finally answered midway through the second quarter to cut the lead to 22-6 on a 13-yard touchdown pass, but Davis-Hamilton scored his second touchdown before the end of the quarter to close out the halftime scoring and give Apopka a 30-6 lead.Davis-Hamilton and Brown each scored third-quarter touchdowns to give Apopka a 44-12 lead heading into the fourth quarter, but both teams went scoreless in the final period.If they do make the postseason, Apopka will play its first game on the road because they did not win their district.

Venezuela in the Bronx, N.Y.

first_imgHugo Chávez mural in the South Bronx.South Bronx, N.Y.In 2006 Venezuela’s revolutionary President Hugo Chávez visited the South Bronx in New York City. In an act of international solidarity, his government launched a program to provide free heating oil to the people of that oppressed community.Ten years later, on Sept. 22, over 100 activists gathered at The Point, a community center in the South Bronx, to welcome Venezuelan Foreign Minister Delcy Rodriguez and to dedicate a three-story mural in honor of President Chávez.The mural, painted on the wall of The Point by Bronx artist Andre Trenier, shows Comandante Chávez, as he is affectionately known, singing along with community activist Omar Freya whose band was performing in honor of Chávez. Speaking at the dedication, Freya recounted how Chávez had spoken with every one of the hundreds of people gathered to welcome him, then picked up an instrument and played with the band.Left to right, Karen Jarrett, of the New York State Nurses Association; Estela Vazquez, of 1199SEIU; Venezuelan ForeignMinister Delcy Rodriguez; and Wanda Salaman, of Mothers on the Move.“Comandante Chávez had a special feeling for this neighborhood,” Minister Rodriguez told the gathering. “That is why we are here because we feel that you are like us.” She expressed solidarity with the protests against police brutality in Charlotte, N.C., and the struggle against the Dakota Access Pipeline in Standing Rock, N.D.Rodriguez also denounced the U.S. government’s plan to give $38 billion worth of arms to Israel to terrorize the Palestinian people, while so many in the U.S. live in poverty. Speaking to the U.N. General Assembly on Sept. 23, Rodriguez delivered a scathing indictment of capitalism as a “threat to the future of humanity.”Among those welcoming Minister Rodriguez to the Bronx were The Point President Maria Torres; Estela Vazquez, of 1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers East; Shep Sadiki Ojore Olugbala, of the original Black Panther Party and the Universal Zulu Nation; Dr. Raymond Rivera, of the Latino Pastoral Action Center; and Wanda Salaman, of Mothers on the Move.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Abolition and Disability Justice Collective solidarity with Palestine statement

first_imgFrom the Workers World Party’s Disability Justice and Rights Caucus:The Abolition and Disability Justice Coalition (abolitionanddisabilityjustice.com), which issued this wonderful statement of solidarity with Palestine, describes itself as “abolitionist psychiatric survivors, people with disabilities and their accomplices. We believe in and work toward the liberation of all.” It subscribes to the 10 principles of disability justice of a leading disability justice organization, Sins Invalid, the first of which, Intersectionality, quotes Audre Lorde: “We do not lead single issue lives,” and adds “Ableism, coupled with white supremacy, supported by capitalism, underscored by heteropatriarchy, has rendered the vast majority of the world ‘invalid.’”  The Disability Justice and Rights Caucus of Workers World Party changed our name last year from the Disability Rights Caucus because of the vanguard role in the struggle for disabled liberation of the Disability Justice Movement. We  join with the ADJC, Sins Invalid and the Autistic People of Color Collective in their solidarity with the Palestinian people. Following the lead of Sins Invalid and the Autistic People of Color Collective, the Abolition and Disability Justice Collective condemns Israel’s most recent massacres of Palestinians and its ongoing occupation and settler colonization of Palestine. Disability justice cannot exist under settler colonialism, military occupation, imprisonment and apartheid. We write this in support of the Palestinian struggle for freedom, dignity and self-determination. Israeli settler colonization is a disability justice issue that underscores the urgency of abolition and its internationalist dimensions. Israel routinely maims and traumatizes Palestinians, using money, weapons and policing tactics from the U.S. and Canada, among other settler-colonial states. Israel has systematically targeted and killed disabled and nondisabled Palestinians, and Israel’s ongoing violence is uniquely disabling for children and Palestinians of all ages. Disability is spatially concentrated in the refugee camps and in Gaza because of the violence of the occupation, and there is a “layering” of disablement, especially in Gaza, as the numbers of disabled people increase with every act of warfare on an already overburdened infrastructure. (icph.birzeit.edu)   The settler-colonial states of the U.S. and Canada have pledged to continue supporting Israel’s settler-colonial project. At the same time, the U.S. and Canada are systematically disinvesting in communities across the U.S. and Canada, specifically impacting disabled, deaf and neurodivergent, negatively racialized communities. U.S. and Canadian police also often brutally repress protests in solidarity with Palestinians and other marginalized, occupied, oppressed and displaced communities. Those who oppose the occupation of Palestine and support their right to resist apartheid are often met with Zionist attacks.  Israeli weapons, military/police tactics and technologies cycle between Israel, the U.S. and Canada. The U.S. and Canada routinely send police, immigration enforcement and other law enforcement to training in Israel, facilitated by groups like the Anti-Defamation League. This exchange of racist and colonial law enforcement tactics, weapons and training is called the “deadly exchange” by those who oppose it. In the U.S. and Canada, police use the same weapons and tactics against Black people, Indigenous people and other negatively racialized people. Police target deaf, disabled and neurodivergent negatively racialized people with these technologies, maiming, killing or incarcerating them. As in the U.S., Israeli police have brutalized and killed countless disabled people with impunity. Police also cause injuries and trauma with these technologies, resulting in the disablement of negatively racialized people. Within the 1948 lines we have seen an intensification of racialized police violence against Palestinian citizens of Israel. This has ranged from attacking demonstrators with stun grenades and tear gas, to preventing civilians injured by police from accessing medical care, to violently breaking into homes to arrest people. Overall, more than 1,000 Palestinian citizens of Israel were arrested, over half of whom are minors; while only 150 Israeli Jews were arrested, and none were charged. Furthermore, the police escorted and protected fascist Israeli settler militias, while they were rampaging through the streets targeting Palestinian lives and property. Therefore our calls for police abolition are imperative in this context as well. (arabnews.com)Israeli restrictions on the movement of people and goods also keep Palestinians from accessing food, clean water and health care. These constraints also prevent disabled Palestinians from gaining access to aids like wheelchairs, prosthetics, hearing aids, medications and more. Additionally, Israeli control deprives Palestinians basic economic, educational and social opportunities. Destruction of roads and buildings makes it impossible for many disabled people to get around, even when they are allowed to move. Due to chronic power outages in occupied Palestine, people often lack light to communicate using sign language, cannot use equipment powered by electricity to move or breathe and cannot dependably keep life-sustained medications at required temperatures. Israel — much like the U.S. and Canada — has also hoarded COVID-19 vaccines. While being celebrated as a “beacon” for its vaccination efforts, Israel has denied the same access to Palestinians in areas it occupies, which means high rates of infections and premature death for Palestinians, especially those with chronic illnesses. Other Israeli tactics also affect disabled Palestinians especially harshly. Palestinians with disabilities are less likely to be able to escape the buildings that Israel bombs in time to save their lives. The intergenerational trauma of displacement, occupation and targeted violence exacerbates hostilities and leaves lasting grief and pain. Palestinians with disabilities are less likely to be able to stand in long lines to get through checkpoints to access a hospital, school or loved ones. Just this week, Israel has bombed the only COVID clinic in Gaza, has destroyed infrastructure around the primary hospital in Gaza and has killed three leading doctors and their families in Gaza, including the leader of Gaza’s COVID-19 response, Gaza’s only neurosurgeon and a psychologist. In short, Israel is destroying access to basic care in Gaza.We bear witness to the latest wave of atrocities as they continue to unfold, and we say no more. Disability justice requires solidarity with Palestine.We demand an end to the occupation of Palestine and to Israeli apartheid.We demand the return of stolen land and homes in Sheikh Jarrah and beyond. We demand an end to the attacks on Masjid al Aqsa and Gaza. We demand an end to the attacks on hospitals, clinics, rehabilitation facilities and health care providers and the provision of accessible health care for all Palestinians. We demand abolition of the open-air prison in Gaza, in which 2 million Palestinians are confined in unlivable conditions. Our call for police and prison abolition includes an immediate end to the exchange of weapons, military and police funds and tactics between the U.S., Canada and Israel. We call for decolonization and Palestine liberation, anti-imperialism and anti-militarism to be a central part of disability organizing agendas.We call for further analysis, research and resources to be devoted to madness/disability in Palestine and in relation to Palestinians (in Palestine, Israel or abroad), especially peer support and non-coercive medical and mental health care.We call for all people to join the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement. (bdsmovement.net)Abolition and apartheid cannot coexist. There is no disability justice under military occupation. Palestine must be free.Note: While discussing the traumatic and disabling effects of ongoing Israeli occupation, some have adopted formalized, diagnostic and pathologizing language commonly used in the U.S. and other Western cultures. However, Palestinians have made it clear that this language does not accurately describe their experiences, and psychiatric labels are rooted in Western notions of trauma. Therefore, we do not use these labels. (middleeasteye.net, qz.com) FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

I am proud of our Ethics & Compliance team led by Antonio D’Amico, AECOM’s chief ethics and compliance officer, and that our ethical culture, values and leadership have been recognized by Ethisphere with this distinction.” Grounded in Ethisphere’s proprietary Ethics Quotient®, this year’s assessment process was composed of more than 200 questions focusing on culture, environmental and social practices, ethics and compliance activities, governance, diversity and initiatives to support a strong value chain.
