I reckon the big mining companies are good to follow for one important thing. They have a unique position at the start of the production chain for industry. And that makes their insights about the outlook for the world economy useful for investors.The slump after the stock market crashIn today’s full-year results report, BHP (LSE: BHP) delivered some lacklustre figures. Net operating cash flow dropped by 10% compared to the year before. Underlying basic earnings per share rose by 2%, but the directors trimmed the full-year dividend by 10%. At least one figure did go up: net debt rose by 28% to just over $12bn.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…Looking ahead, the company reckons the world’s economies will contract in 2020 because of the Covid-19 pandemic. However, China will fare better. But in 2021, BHP expects a “solid” rebound, albeit with “considerable variation” between countries.However, even with the rebound, BHP expects the world economy to be around 6% smaller than it would have been without Covid-19. The company assumes it will take China and the developed world until 2023 to return to pre-Covid-19 trend growth rates. And developing economies outside East Asia “may take longer.”  But it’s not all bad news. Although inflation trends and exchange rates have been volatile, many of BHP’s uncontrollable cost exposures such as diesel, power, explosives and steel products have declined in the last six months. And other industries will likely be benefitting from reduced costs in those areas too.BHP’s directors also point out that Covid-19 has profoundly affected national and regional labour markets. They think labour costs will remain lower than anticipated before the pandemic “for some years” in the mining industry. It seems reasonable to assume there’ll be downward pressure on wages in other sectors as well.Bullish for the long termBHP expects the ongoing uncertainty around the pandemic to constrain the risk appetite of households and businesses. And that will likely cause a dampening effect on the global economy. But the directors are positive about long-term global economic growth and commodity demand. They think population growth and rising living standards will drive demand “for decades to come” for the products BHP provides such as energy, metals and fertilisers.  Looking back, the stock market has done well over the past decades, despite many previous challenging times. So investing in shares backed by good-quality businesses will probably work out well if we aim to hold our investments for many years.I’d research quality stocks in a range of sectors to buy and hold, such as Unilever, Diageo, Sage, PZ Cussons and many others. But I’m not keen on exposing my portfolio to BHP right now. Shares backed by cyclical businesses can be decent vehicles for making a bet on the next up-leg. But the share is trading in the middle ground. And I’d want to see it in an obvious cyclical trough before investing. Click here to claim your free copy of this special investing report now!

We are immensely grateful to the IKEA Foundation for recognising the HOME Project’s mission which is critical, and for this generous donation which will make a deep and lasting impact on so many lives. This vital work saves lives and needs support – we hope it will serve as an inspiration to the international community.” IKEA Foundation has made a €1 million grant to The HOME Project to support its work in housing and employing refugees stranded in Greece through the ongoing crisis.The HOME Project focuses in particularly on helping lone refugee children and has already opened five dedicated shelters, with a structure of care and support.The IKEA Foundation donation will enable The HOME Project to double the scope of its work. It will fund the opening of five more shelters, increasing its provision to care for more than 200 children in secure environments that give support, protection, education and social integration services to dozens of displaced children.SEE ALSO: Why is IKEA a nonprofit?This latest commitment will bring the total jobs created by The HOME Project to over 120, including employment for many of the refugees.The HOME Project states that more than 8,419 of the refugees in Greece are unaccompanied minors.

Jan. 27 social media campaign to support Rasmea Odeh

Posted On Jun 15 2021 by

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this We publish the following appeal from #Justice4Rasmea on their important campaign this week.Rasmea OdehJoin the Rasmea Defense Committee for a social media campaign Wednesday, Jan. 27, in support of Palestinian American icon Rasmea Odeh — and prepare for an Emergency Response to the appellate court decision!In October 2015, Rasmea’s legal team delivered oral arguments in an appeal of her unjust conviction for Unlawful Procurement of Naturalization. The decision is expected any day now, and we have to be prepared!Participate on Twitter and Facebook on Wednesday, January 27th, using sample tweets, hashtags, articles, memes and other resources that we will be sending to everyone on Monday. Rasmea has dedicated her life to the cause of a #FreePalestine and to Arab communities across the world, including the past 12 years in Chicago, so we must continue to organize to win #Justice4Rasmea.In addition, although we are confident that we will win the appeal and have the conviction overturned, there is a chance — as we reported right before the end of 2015 — that the appellate court will uphold the conviction, ruling in favor of the government. If that happens, it is very likely that Rasmea will be ordered to turn herself in to federal prison authorities, as we petition to keep her out on bail.Emergency Response PlanWe have developed an Emergency Response Plan for this contingency!If this worst-case scenario decision comes down BEFORE 12 NOON, and Rasmea is ordered to prison, we are calling for protests the VERY SAME DAY at 5 p.m. at federal buildings across the country.If the decision comes down AFTER 12 NOON, we are calling for protests the NEXT DAY at 5 PM. Allies and supporters across the world will also be participating in the emergency response by protesting at U.S. consulates and embassies everywhere.Please forward widely and look out for our follow up announcement early next week. Tell all your family, friends and colleagues to be ready to join us on social media Wednesday, Jan. 27, to demand #Justice4Rasmea!Rasmea Defense CommitteeJan. 22last_img read more


Sharpeville massacre: A turning point in the anti-apartheid struggle

Posted On Jun 15 2021 by

first_imgThe following article first appeared on the front page of the April 1, 1960, issue of Workers World. The original headline was “South African revolution has begun!  General strike wins first victory! The mass murder of Africans was a boomerang; South African dictatorship faces abyss!” The article was written by V. Grey, aka Vince Copeland, a founding member of Workers World Party. “Mass murder” was a reference to the infamous Sharpeville massacre of people protesting the pass law system on March 21, 1960, near a police station in the Black township of Sharpeville. The majority of those killed in the massacre were shot in the back while trying to flee the police terror. South African women protest pass laws Aug. 9, 1956.The pass laws — implemented by the racist apartheid white regime — denied the Indigenous-majority Black population in South Africa access to any part of their country, except certain impoverished townships. A Black person caught without a pass, unless given permission by a white authority, would be arrested. The Sharpeville incident was the largest single-day massacre in apartheid South Africa up until the Soweto Youth uprising and massacre on June 16, 1976.Following the Sharpeville massacre, the African National Congress, mentioned in Copeland’s article, helped form an armed liberation movement, Umkhonto we Sizwe. Finally in 1994 the legal apartheid system was dismantled when ANC leader, Nelson Mandela, was voted president of South Africa in the first democratic election in that country.   The International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination was first declared by the United Nations on March 21, 1979, to commemorate the significance of the Sharpeville Massacre and the forceful response which helped elevate the mass struggle, including the rise of a powerful workers’ movement.  — Monica MooreheadBy Vince CopelandThe world imperialist press has not admitted it yet. But the South Africa Revolution has already begun. The destruction of the oppressive pass law system after 153 years (although announced as a temporary concession) is a monumentalvictory from which the African people will not retreat. The revolution is surging ahead.Under the pass system, hundreds and even thousands of Africans were rounded up at a time to do hard labor on Europeans’ plantations for any “irregularity” with their passes. (The Europeans have private prisons on their land where they obligingly keep the pass violators, while they exploit them unmercifully without pay.)The great demonstration of March 21 wherein 72 Africans were admitted to have been killed by police has shaken the most hated, dictatorial, Jim Crow government in the world.The mass slaughter, instead of terrorizing the Africans, was followed by a nationwide general strike which terrorized the reactionary government! The driving force of this struggle has split the South African ruling class wide open — a sure sign of a classical revolution situation.A strong minority of the ruling class — represented by the United Party — favors an approach to the more moderate element in the African leadership, that is, the leaders of the African National Congress who stood aside from the great demonstration. (It was the Pan-Africanist Congress that called the demonstration and initiated the present struggle — not the “moderates.”)The ruling National Party has the more vicious and extreme position and is the author of the “apartheid” policy. The United Party is already somewhat defeatist.  It is already willing to surrender some real gains to the Africans because it fears that the African masses may otherwise take everything. But it hopes to use the moderates, the right wing of the revolution, in a way that will paralyze the effectiveness of the left wing and put the revolution back into safe channels.The exact lineup of forces in the camp of the African leadership is not too clear yet. But it is obvious that there are two currents. One favors immediate and unconditional independence. The other favors compromises and “emancipation by stages.”The second current is already weakening. The call for freedom will no longer be denied. The South African people are determined to win their country back.The reactionary Nationalist Party has temporarily agreed with the “liberal” United Party and  given in to the slavish pass system. But from this time onward, the crumbs of compromise will be as great a goad to the masses as the whip of counterrevolution. The South African revolution is on!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more


Riding the Green Wave: Local Kids Showcase that Composting is for Everyone

Posted On Jun 12 2021 by

first_img Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday High Point Academy students speak with Pasadena Councilman Gene Masuda about the school’s Composting Program.High Point Academy is striving to be a model ‘green’ school. From composting and food scrap recovery to LED lighting and reduced paper use, High Point students are living the culture of environmental stewardship. In partnership with Waste Less Living, High Point Academy students showcased how local governments can comply with the Mandatory Commercial Recycling Law, AB 341 that requires cities to reduce their waste going to landfills by 75%. By recovering organics in the waste stream, composting it and using the finished compost as a turf or landscape treatment, compliance with AB 341 can likely be attained.At the event, Pasadena Councilmember Gene Masuda and Dan Noble of the Association of Compost Producers spoke about the importance of resource management over waste management and congratulated the student’s efforts.For the past four years, Waste Less Living, a zero-waste consulting and composting service provider, has been guiding High Point Academy in taking its commitment to environmental stewardship to the next level. Students receive on-going education and training to reduce their waste practices at the school and learn first hand how composting makes a difference to their environment. Students and staff diligently separate, weigh and catalogue their food scraps, their recyclables, and trash on a daily basis. School-wide, they use compostable cups, utensils, and tableware for celebrations which they in turn recover and process into compost.“I commend High Point Academy for taking such a bold move and investing in their students’ environmental stewardship education and for blazing a new path for the future of waste management,” said Gene Masuda, Pasadena councilmember District 4. “WasteLess Living and High Point Academy’s partnership is a great model of a successful collaboration between private enterprise and schools for addressing our solid waste problem and for cleaning up the environment. It begins with education and both Waste Less Living and High Point Academy are at the forefront to achieving compliance with AB 341.”“As a result of establishing a partnership with Waste Less Living, our students are seeing the fruits of their labor and learning,” said High Point Academy principal John Higgins. “We are proud that this program has demonstrated to be a good example of our school’s commitment to reducing our carbon footprint and educating our students about the environmental benefits of composting.”For more information on the program, visit www.wastelessliving.com or contact Christine Lenches-Hinkel at (626) 786-5947.

City councillors defend earnings

Posted On Jun 4 2021 by

first_imgEmail Advertisement WhatsApp CITY councillors have defended their earnings, as published in the Irish Independent, pointing out that payments are subject to income tax and levies. Councillors are paid €17,000 per annum, topped up by generous allowances. Former Mayor of Limerick, Cllr John Gilligan, who claimed €55,740 during 2008 (he was elected mayor in June of that year), received €54,116 in 2009.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Facebook Print NewsLocal NewsCity councillors defend earningsBy admin – August 5, 2010 616 Twitter Linkedin “During my first eight years as an Independent councillor I never went anywhere at the city council’s expense. “I never used conference expenses but that was my own decision. As mayor, I was away on a trip just once, to Liverpool”.Addressing his payments of €60,502 in 2008 and €37,836 in 2009, Cllr Ger Fahy, points out that his mayoralty extended into the first six months of 2008.Elected in June 2007, he took a year’s unpaid leave from work when elected mayor.“I wanted to make a full commitment to the mayoralty and while the mayor’s salary is taxed, you do get allowances.“In 2002, Representation Allowances were granted – this is payment that is fully taxed  – that is €17,000. Then there are expenses and allowances for attending meetings and payments for chairing Strategic Policy Committees – the government dictates the amount of this allowance.“It’s widely acknowledged that the role of a councillor is becoming more demanding.  It’s important to be accountable and you have to be accessible to people when issues arise. I’ve resigned from my job and I can see that in the near future councillors will be working on a full time basis for their constituencies”.Cllr Diarmuid Scully, whose payments for 2008 were estimated at €32,510, and €34,126 for 2009, told the Limerick Post that he is “rather choosy and discerning” about the conferences he attends.“It was stated in one national newspaper some years ago that I was paid in the region of €80,000 when in fact the figure was €30,000.“I’m chair of the Economic Policy and Future Planning Strategic Policy Committee and also of the City Development Board. If you went back a few years, you’d see that my expenses were then lower but while expenses for conferences have been cut by half, there is now a wider range of conferences, which are beneficial to councillors whose role nowadays is effectively a full time one”.In 2009, Cllr Kevin Kiely, Mayor from June, received a total of €57,506; Cllr Michael Hourigan, €39,420; Cllr Joe Leddin, €37,165; Cllr Jim Long €36,628; Cllr Ger McLoughlin, €36,608; Cllr Maria Byrne, €32,984; Cllr Pat Kennedy, €34,099; Cllr Kieran O’Hanlon, €33,494; Cllr Kathleen Leddin, €33,399; Cllr Denis McCarthy, €20,073; Cllr Orla McLoughlin, €17,082; Cllr Tom Shortt, €15,589; Cllr Cormac Hurley, €13,625; Cllr Maurice Quinlivan €12,646. Councillors McCarthy, Shortt, Hurley, Orla McLoughlin and Quinlivan were first elected in June 2009.

Posted On May 18 2021 by

first_imgAtlantic Highlands Police(ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS, N.J.) — Weeks after the 18th anniversary of 9/11, three bronze plaques were stolen from a memorial in New Jersey, according to the Atlantic Highlands Police Department.Police believe the crime happened between Sept. 25 and 26 at the Monmouth County 9/11 Memorial at Mt. Mitchell in Atlantic Highlands, New Jersey. The plaques at the memorial indicate time stamps of the events on Sept. 11, and now only one is left.The memorial includes a timeline walkway recalling the day’s events, a stone base with the names, ages and hometowns of the county residents that lost their lives, and an eagle sculpture with a beam from one of the fallen towers, according to Monmouth County’s website.
