See all posts by Peter Stephens Enter Your Email Address Some FTSE 100 shares have experienced catastrophic losses over recent months. In the short run, further falls could be ahead as the spread of coronavirus is expected to intensify.While this may not seem to be the right time to buy stocks, history shows that purchasing high-quality companies following major declines in their valuations can lead to long-term profits.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…As such, here are two FTSE 100 stocks that have fallen heavily in recent months. Their valuations suggest they could be worth buying today and holding for the long run.easyJetThe share price of easyJet (LSE: EZJ) has fallen by around 40% over the last month. Clearly, the spread of coronavirus throughout Europe has caused disruption to the airline industry. That means consumers may become increasingly averse to travelling.This could negatively impact on easyJet’s financial performance at a time when its outlook was already relatively uncertain. Risks such as Brexit and a competitive airline industry had weighed on its stock price over recent years.However, the company is focusing on maintaining a disciplined stance on costs and investing in new technology to become more efficient. It is also expanding into new areas such as holidays, so its growth strategy seems to be sound.Its price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 8.8 suggests that investors have factored-in many of the challenges faced by the business. Although further declines in its market valuation may be ahead, and its financial performance could come under pressure, it could deliver long-term capital growth.For investors who can ignore the prospect of paper losses in the short run, now could be the right time to buy a slice of the stock and hold it for the long run.MorrisonsAnother FTSE 100 share that has experienced an uncertain period is Morrisons (LSE: MRW). Its share price has fallen by around a third over the past 18 months. Much of this has been due to weak consumer confidence that has contributed to a slow pace of growth for the retailer.In fact, in its recent update, Morrisons reported a fall in sales and difficult operating conditions. They could continue over the coming months, and may be further impacted by the spread of coronavirus in the UK.As a result, investors seem to be pricing-in the prospect of a challenging period for the business. This has left Morrisons trading on a P/E ratio of 13.1. This suggests that it offers good value for money on a long-term investment outlook.Yes, the retailer faces risks in the short run that could mean further share price declines. But its expansion into wholesale, its investment in online grocery shopping, and the gains it is making in improving customer loyalty are all good. They may lead to a strong recovery over the coming years. Therefore, the stock could offer long-term investment potential. These 2 FTSE 100 stocks have crashed over 30%. I’d buy them today and hold them forever “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Peter Stephens owns shares of easyJet and Morrisons.

Ida B. WellsThe Equal Justice Initiative published a report entitled “Lynching in America: Confronting the Legacy of Racial Terror” on Feb. 10. It illustrates the need to re-examine a sordid period in U.S. history, which has never been officially acknowledged. (ejl.org)Although this horrendous practice originated during slavery, after the Civil War concluded and the Reconstruction began, extra-judicial killings of African Americans became integral to the exploitation and social containment of formerly enslaved people. The Ku Klux Klan was formed in 1866 as a secret organization led by former plantation owners and Confederate military officials.This study places the rise of lynching within a historical context. After the Civil War and the legal abolition of slavery, reactionary whites sought to re-establish their dominance over African people. In the section “Second Slavery after the Civil War,” the authors emphasize that “white southern identity was grounded in a belief that whites are inherently superior to African Americans.“Following the war, whites reacted violently to the notion that they would now have to treat their former human property as equals and pay for their labor. Plantation owners attacked black people simply for claiming their freedom. In May 1866, in Memphis, Tennessee, forty-six African Americans were killed; ninety-one houses, four churches, and twelve schools were burned to the ground; at least five women were raped; and many black people fled the city permanently.” (p. 7)Ida B. Wells began anti-lynching campaign This report continues the work done by other scholars and Civil Rights organizations since the late 19th century. By 1892, public lynchings attracted the attention of African-American journalist Ida B. Wells. She started an international campaign after African-Americans Tom Moss, Calvin McDowell and Henry Stewart were taken from a jail cell in Memphis and fatally shot by law-enforcement agents.A 2002 PBS documentary, “The Rise and Fall of Jim Crow,” tells of Moss, McDowell and Stewart who were “arrested for defending themselves against an attack on Moss’ [grocery] store. Moss was a highly respected figure in the black community. … A white competitor, enraged that Moss had drawn away his black customers, hired some off-duty deputy sheriffs to destroy the store. Moss and his friends, not knowing the men were deputies, resisted. A gun battle broke out and several deputies were wounded.“Moss, his two friends, and one hundred other black supporters were arrested. Several nights later, masked vigilantes dragged Moss and his two friends from their cells,” and shot them in a deserted railroad yard.A few months later, Wells’ Memphis newspaper offices were firebombed by a white mob empowered by a local magistrate. She was driven out of the city for exposing the false pretexts under which many lynchings were justified. In Chicago, Wells continued her work.However, the terrible events in Memphis led thousands of African Americans to subsequently leave the city and migrate to Oklahoma.In 1893, Wells toured Britain to lecture on U.S. lynchings, revealing to an international audience the plight of African Americans. Two years later, she wrote an important pamphlet entitled “The Red Record: Tabulated Statistics and Alleged Causes of Lynching in the United States.” It was a comprehensive study of racist mob killings of African Americans.Wells co-founded the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in 1909. The organization campaigned for decades against lynching and pushed unsuccessfully for federal legislation to outlaw it.Sponsored by the Civil Rights Congress, attorney William L. Patterson, Dr. W. E. B. Du Bois and cultural worker and activist Paul Robeson published “We Charge Genocide” in 1951. This historic petition, which was submitted to the United Nations, documented years of racial violence against African Americans, carried out with impunity in full view of white officials, law-enforcement agencies and the courts.Even during the height of the Civil Rights Movement from 1955 to 1968, white police officers and racist mobs murdered African Americans and their allies.Study reports nearly 4,000 lynchings The EJI blog notes, “Researchers documented 3,959 racial terror lynchings of African Americans” in 12 Southern states “between 1877 and 1950 — at least 700 more lynchings of black people in these states than previously reported in the most comprehensive work done on lynching to date.” This work asserts that “lynching of African Americans was terrorism, a widely supported phenomenon used to enforce racial subordination and segregation.”In compiling information on the newly revealed lynchings, the report’s authors acknowledged the works of academic Stewart E. Tolnay and Tuskegee University. They also drew on additional cases written about in the African-American press.Legal lynching today: death penalty, police terrorDuring World War I, the Great Migration of African Americans began — from the rural South to urbanized Northern and Western U.S. regions. Public lynchings declined then, but these acts of racial terror continued through other means, including state-sanctioned executions.The EJI reports, “By 1915, court-ordered executions outpaced lynchings in the former slave states for the first time. Two-thirds of those executed in the 1930s were black, and the trend continued. As African Americans fell to just 22 percent of the South’s population between 1910 and 1950, they constituted 75 percent of those executed in the South during that period.” (p. 21)This study documents how this vile process continued into the modern era: “In the 1987 case of McCleskey v. Kemp, the Supreme Court considered statistical evidence demonstrating that Georgia decision makers were more than four times as likely to impose death for the killing of a white person than a black person. … [T]he Court described racial bias in sentencing as ‘an inevitable part of our criminal justice system’ and upheld Warren McCleskey’s death sentence because he failed to identify a ‘constitutionally significant risk of racial bias’ in his case.”The EJI report reaffirms that today’s wave of police killings and other racist attacks are part of the system of national oppression and social control used by the ruling class to exploit and contain African people since the 19th century. Despite Civil Rights legislation passed in the 1950s and 1960s and the ascendancy of African-American elected officials, including the president, justice is still denied to many.Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Aiyana Stanley Jones, Tamir Rice and countless others have been killed by police officers who remain unscathed by prosecutors and the courts. The Justice Department has not brought charges against these officers after local authorities failed to indict and arrest the perpetrators.It will take a revolution to overthrow the legacy of racial terrorism in the U.S. African-American and other oppressed peoples must be totally liberated from national oppression before they can expect any real justice that protects and values their lives from the ravages of state-supported repression and violence.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Home Indiana Agriculture News More Pork but Higher Prices in 2017 Facebook Twitter SHARE hurt-2017-hog-outlookThe last USDA Hogs and Pigs report issued in December estimated this year’s supply of pork will be larger than most analysts expect. U.S. pork producers, in the last quarter of 2016 set a pigs-per-litter record and for the entire year, the new annual record is 10.5 pigs per litter. Every sow is having more pigs so there will be an increase in pork output by about three percent this year. That’s the expectation of Purdue University Agricultural Economist Chris Hurt.“And that will be to 27.5 billion pounds,” he said. “Pork production will rise by four percent in the first half of 2017, by about two percent in the last-half.”Normally you would think with the higher production annual prices would be lower, but Hurts says there is more to consider.“First, retail prices did drop in 2016, but there is an opportunity for retail prices to come down even more, and lower retail prices would help stimulate the quantity of pork consumers purchase. Secondly USDA expects exports to expand by five percent and that will move more of the increased production to foreign consumers. Finally, with the addition of new processing capacity the farm to wholesale margins are expected to drop. Lower margins at the processing stage may contribute to stronger bids to hog producers.”Live hog prices are expected to be about $48 in 2017, $2 higher than in 2016. Hurt predicts prices will average $45 in the first quarter, the very-low $50s in the second and the third quarters, and then drop to $43 in the final quarter of 2017. A range of $2 higher or lower would be reasonable for price projections.Hurt expects costs of production to be around $50 on a live weight basis in both 2016 and 2017 based on current feed price expectations. That totals an average loss for producers of $12 a head last year and $6 a head this year. Because the 2017 outlook is for weak returns Hurt says it is important hog farmers keep further expansion to a minimum. This will be difficult with new processing capacity coming in 2017 as those plants will want to stimulate some added production to fill their lines.Source: NAFB News Service By Andy Eubank – Jan 4, 2017 Facebook Twitter More Pork but Higher Prices in 2017 Previous articleVilsack Expected to Become U.S. Dairy Export Council PresidentNext articleMorning Outlook Andy Eubank SHARE
December 30, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Less anti-media violence in 2010 but more obstruction and self-censorship News Sri LankaAsia – Pacific News Reporters Without Borders condemns the new forms of censorship and obstruction being used by government to prevent diverse and freely-reported media coverage of the situation in Sri Lanka. The fall in the number of physical attacks, threats and cases of imprisonment is to be welcomed, but it is worrying that the authorities are blocking the return of real editorial freedom.At the same time, the flight of at least 55 Sri Lankan journalists, including many press freedom activists, into exile during the past three years has left a void in the country’s media.We hope the authorities will create the conditions for a lasting improvement in press freedom in 2011. This must include solving the murder of The Sunday Leader’s well-known editor, Lasantha Wickrematunge, nearly two years ago (http://en.rsf.org/sri-lanka-shock-and-anger-continue-one-year-07-01-2010…) and political cartoonist Prageeth Ekneligoda’s disappearance nearly a year ago (http://en.rsf.org/sri-lanka-where-is-prageeth-10-08-2010,38113.html).The latest incident was today’s ban on a visit by 10 Sri Lankan and foreign journalists, including the BBC’s correspondent, to a detention camp in Boosa to attend a meeting between prisoners and the government-created Lessons Learned and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC). The reporters had previously received permission from the LLRC and the Media Centre for National Security.Human rights groups say there have been cases of torture and extrajudicial disappearances in the camp, which houses more than 700 suspected former members of the Tamil Tiger rebels.BBC journalists were already prevented from attended several LLRC interview sessions with the Tamil population in September in Killinochchi, Mullaitivu and elsewhere. The BBC’s journalists were, on the other hand, able to cover the commission’s work in the north of the island in August. At this time, the Tamil daily Thinakural and the Colombo-based English-language Sunday Times published devastating accounts of cases of forced disappearances of Tamils at the end of the civil war.As a general rule, the authorities are providing the media with no precise information about the problem of Tamil Tiger prisoners of war. The figures vary from ministry to ministry. And the press has had no access to some detainee camps. Journalists are afraid to cover the issue of war crimes or their editors do not let them.A Colombo-based media freedom activist said: “Several journalists from English and Sinhalese-language media have been allowed to follow the LLRC’s work, but their reports do not include the most disturbing accounts of the end of the war. They have to censor themselves on the issue of war crimes.”In another example of self-censorship, few Sri Lankan media reported the recent murder in Jaffna of an education official who had criticised the government’s decision to force Tamil children to sing the national anthem in Sinhalese.One of the few newspapers to cover these stories, The Sunday Leader, is being subjected to various forms of harassment. Its editor, Frederica Jansz, is currently being sued by Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, one of the president’s brothers.In 2010, the main telephone operator, Dialog, refused to transmit critical content of the government by SMS. A Colombo-based journalist said this decision forced several news websites to censor themselves in order to continue having their reports relayed by Dialog. The situation was denounced by JNW News, which provides mobile phone operators with news content.Cases of violence have not ended altogether. Reporters for the MTV / Sirasa television station and the Lanka-e-News website were recently attacked by ruling party supporters while at Colombo airport to cover the return of the leader of the far-left NSSP party. And four journalists, including a Daily Mirror photographer, were hit by police while covering a student demonstration in the capital in mid-October.
