It’s up 17% since the beginning of November as significant breakthroughs on a Covid-19 vaccine have boosted investor confidence. And the blue-chip UK share index kept rising in Friday trading as well. In fact the FTSE 100 just hit its highest level since early March around 6,550 points .It’s too early in the Covid-19 fightback to claim that the new bull market is here. There are still numerous reasons, coronavirus-related and otherwise, why UK share prices could turn lower again. Signs that a Brexit deal is hitting the buffers is one reason why British stocks might run out of puff.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…Buying UK shares despite the uncertaintyThe possibility of fresh share price volatility isn’t affecting my own investing strategy, though. I buy UK shares for the long haul. That is, I purchase them with a view to holding them for at least a decade. Over this sort of time horizon the impact of temporary share price choppiness on eventual returns is minimal.This is why I’ve continued to invest in my Stocks and Shares ISA in 2020 despite the uncertain economic outlook. I don’t need to be worried by wild swings in investor confidence and its impact on UK share prices. I also know that the global economy will bounce back strongly and pull stock markets northwards with them. History shows us time and again that shares recover after economic, political and social crises. I can afford to be patient and not be anxious for a strong economic recovery in 2021.2 cheap FTSE 100 shares on my watchlistI’ve bought shares in Coca-Cola HBC in recent weeks. And there are plenty more FTSE 100 stocks I’m thinking of adding to my ISA in the not-too-distant future. Indeed, despite the recent stock market rally a large number of Footsie-quoted shares still appear to be too cheap to miss.Here are a couple of blue-chip UK shares on my radar today:Associated British Foods is likely to experience a terrific uplift in trading in 2021 as its Primark stores are reopened and tough economic conditions boost demand for its budget clothes. The business has described sales as “phenomenal” since it reopened scores of stores this week. I’d buy it today and hold it for years as its global store expansion scheme should deliver terrific shareholder profits. Today ABF trades on a rock-bottom forward price-to-earnings (PEG) ratio of 0.5.The BAE Systems share price also looks mighty attractive right now. The defence contractor trades on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 10 times. It boasts a mighty 5% dividend yield too. Not only can this FTSE 100 firm expect rising defence budgets in the West to keep driving profits over the next decade. Its position as a top-tier arms supplier should keep the business rolling in too. These qualities helped BAE Systems secure a new £2.4bn munitions contract with the Ministry of Defence just this week. See all posts by Royston Wildlast_img read more

US — #WeeklyAddress: October 29 – November 4: Suspicious package sent to CNN’s Atlanta office intercepted

first_img June 7, 2021 Find out more News Suspicious package sent to CNN’s Atlanta office intercepted Crowds attending a Trump rally in Estero, Florida, on October 31 heckled journalists and mimicked the president’s anti-media rhetoric. Reporter Sabrina Siddiqui tweeted that day that “ahead of Trump’s rally at Hertz Arena in Estero, Florida, the crowd has broken into chants of ‘CNN sucks.’” Some rally-goers also approached the press area while waiting for the rally to begin, yelling obscenities at journalists in attendance. One man who wore a t-shirt that read, “f— the media” told The Daily Beast he wore it in the hope of sending a message to CNN journalist and White House Correspondent Jim Acosta and the rest of the press. During his speech, President Trump criticized the “far-left media,” to which rally-goers responded by leaning in toward the press area and yelling, “Tell the truth” and “fake news,” among other expressions. In late July, Acosta and other journalists reported on an unusually vitriolic and hostile climate at a Tampa rally, where journalists were heckled and given the middle finger by rally-goers. Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says The United States ranks 45th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index after falling 2 places in the last year. President Trump says reporters are “creating violence by not writing the truth” RSF_en Chanters awaiting Desantis and Rubio spit in direction of CNN camera News Below are the most notable incidents regarding threats to press freedom in the US during the week of October 29 – November 4: Crowds heckle the press before and during Trump rally in Florida While waiting for gubernatorial nominee Ron Desantis and Senator Marco Rubio to arrive at a community outreach event in Miami on November 1, those gathered to greet them chanted “CNN sucks” before spitting in the direction of a CNN camera. Daily Beast reporter Andrew Desiderio tweeted a video of the incident, noting the chanters referred to the network as the “Castro News Network.” Outside the White House on November 2, ABC reporter Karen Travers asked President Trump about his role in encouraging politically-motivated violence, to which he told her that “reporters are creating violence by not writing the truth.” In a video, Travers mentioned a recent ABC-Washington Post poll that says 49 percent of registered voters believe he has encouraged violence through his political rhetoric. President Trump pointed his finger at the reporter and said, “You’re creating violence by your questions. You know what. You are creating—you,” before blaming other reporters and the “fake news” for the violence as well. These statements echo President Trump’s criticisms of the media last week for failing to “to set a civil tone” and for unfairly criticizing him “at will.” Receive email alerts News For the latest updates, follow RSF on twitter @RSF_en.

The first two were addressed to the network’s office in the Time Warner Center in New York.

Targeted violence against journalists by police dispersing protest

At least 237 arrests were reportedly made.Armenia is ranked 78th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. ArmeniaEurope – Central Asia ArmeniaEurope – Central Asia RSF_en June 24, 2015 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Targeted violence against journalists by police dispersing protest Reporters Without Borders condemns targeted Armenian police violence against journalists at dawn yesterday in Yerevan, when the authorities used force to disperse a sit-in by large crowd of demonstrators protesting against electricity price hikes. Police attacked at least ten journalists and almost systematically confiscated or smashed their equipment. At least 11 journalists were briefly detained.“We are shocked by the use of such disproportionate force against journalists who were just doing their work,” said Johann Bihr, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk.“This targeted violence was clearly designed to prevent media coverage of the use of force to disperse the sit-in. We urged the authorities to punish this violation of freedom of information so that it does not recur.”Reporters Without Borders has obtained confirmation that Garik Azibekian and Sisak Gabrielian of Radio Azatutyun (the Armenian service of RFE/RL) were attacked, as were Davit Davtian and Khachatur Esayan of Armenia TV.PanArmenian.net said its reporter, Nicolas Torosian, was hit by police, as were the photographers Gevork Gazarian and Karo Sahakian. Three cameramen working for the 1in.am news website ¬– Karen Chilingaryan, Hovsep Hovsepyan and Gor Hovhannisyan – were also hit.

Youth gets 21 years for radio journalist’s murder but motive still unknown

first_img Organisation John Alexander Jaramillo, a 24-year-old man who pleaded guilty to killing community radio station journalist Argemiro Cárdenas Agudelo on 15 March in Dosquebradas, in Risaralda department, was sentenced on 31 March to a combined sentence of 21 years, 2 months and 15 days in prison on charges of homicide and illegally carrying a firearm.Jaramillo, who confessed to the murder three days after it took place, said he was paid 1 million pesos (560 dollars) to carry it out. Asking the court to be forgiven, he nonetheless claimed to be unaware of the victim’s identity, although Cárdenas was well known in Dosquebradas as the head of Metro Rádio Estéreo and as the town’s former mayor.While noting the speed with which the police and judicial authorities acted in this case, Reporters Without Borders cannot be satisfied with a verdict that reveals nothing about the motive for the journalist’s murder.It is unfortunately not unusual in such cases that the authorities arrest and convict a perpetrator, who is young and knows nothing about their background. This cannot be regarded as victory over impunity. Was Cárdenas killed because of his radio journalism? The question has been left unanswered.Meanwhile, another journalist has been murdered. Jesús Martínez Orozco was gunned down by two men on a motorcycle in Sabanalarga, in Atlántico department, on 29 March. Aged 42, he hosted exclusively cultural programmes for La Nueva, a privately-owned local station, and had never received any threat. Some sources are speculating that it was a case of mistaken identity.___________________________________16.03.12 – Head of community radio shot dead in region gripped by drug gangsCommunity broadcaster Argemiro Cárdenas Agudelo was shot dead in cold blood by a hired killer on a motorcycle yesterday in Dosquebradas, in Risaralda department. A politician and former mayor of the town, he was also director and manager of the community radio station Metro Radio Estéreo and for the past 14 years had also contributed to other stations. Since 2010, he had been running Red Radial Cafetera radio and was affiliated to the World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters (AMARC). “We join AMARC and professional bodies in Colombia in paying tribute to Argemiro Cárdenas Agudelo and calling for a thorough investigation into his murder,” Reporters Without Borders said.“One again we call on those conducting the investigation not to be too quick to rule out the possibility that he was killed because of his work, as is often the case in this type of crime. Managing a community radio station is, by definition, a huge risk in a region like Risaralda, where drug traffickers and the feared ‘Cordillera’ armed gang hold sway. “The shadow of these predators of free expression hangs over the most recent cases of journalists murdered or forced into exile.” Local journalists say Cardenas, who was about to retire, had not recently been the target of threats. He campaigned on behalf of local communities, sometimes on the air, against the political establishment, but he did not tackle subjects regarded as risky.As far as a motive is concerned, the police favour the theory that it was a long-standing financial dispute or an attempt to extort cash allegedly earned from the sale of a radio station. While acknowledging these are possibilities, Reporters Without Borders should like to know on what the evidence they are based. Colombia remains one of the western hemisphere’s most dangerous countries for journalists, ranked 143rd of 179 countries in the latest world press freedom index published by Reporters Without Borders, and for several years has had the largest number living in exile, both abroad and internally.
