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. Paul Summers | Wednesday, 15th July, 2020 | More on: TSLA US electric car maker Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) has been one of the success stories on the US market this year. The shares are now a staggering 250% higher than where they were at the beginning of 2020.What’s behind this explosive rise and should UK investors consider taking a stake now?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…Why is Tesla racing away?There are a few reasons for its momentum. First, the buzz around electric vehicles looks to have moved into a higher gear. Increased concern for the environment and the firm’s technical supremacy over other manufacturers (it’s expected to unveil a million-mile, low-cost battery in September) has put Tesla in a thematic sweet spot. Factor-in investors’ belief in the visionary brilliance of CEO Elon Musk and Tesla’s rise, while extreme, makes some sense. Another reason for this rise rests on its status as the ultimate ‘Marmite stock’. But those who loathe it question how a company that still only sells thousands of cars a year can be worth more than those that sell millions combined. This has previously led to massive ‘shorting’ of the stock — traders betting Tesla’s share price will fall.One explanation for why this hasn’t happened is old-fashioned herd speculation. With no sports to bet on during lockdown and buoyed by Federal Reserve’s relief packages, bored novice investors have flooded markets in recent months. Many, it would seem, have put their money into Tesla. This has, in turn, forced said shorters to desperately close their positions (known as a ‘short squeeze’), further propelling the shares upwards.Will it keep rising?It’s hard to say if this can last. History is littered with companies continuing to rise in value despite becoming utterly detached from their fundamentals (which Tesla arguably is). Greed is a powerful motivator. So too is a great story.What we do know is that Tesla ‘shorts’ are now at their lowest level on record. With fewer positions left to close, this could mean the big gains seen recently may be at an end. Adding to the bear case, market jitters over a second coronavirus wave could cause a heavy bout of profit-taking.Last, let’s not forget that Musk’s unpredictability can be a liability for Tesla. In May, he suggested that the value of stock in his own company was “too high“, causing the shares to fall 10%.Taking all this into account, I’d suggest anyone thinking of buying Tesla now should tread carefully if they don’t intend on holding for years. The long-term potential might be even better than anticipated, but the probability of near-term volatility up to the next earnings update on July 22 (and perhaps medium-term choppiness too) is very real.Any alternatives?One option for less risk-tolerant readers would be to look for a fund with shares in the company. UK-based, tech-focused, FTSE 100 member Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust is an example. Tesla is its biggest holding. Unsurprisingly, performance this year has been excellent. The fees charged are also reasonable for an actively-managed fund.A passive alternative is the iShares Electric Vehicles and Driving Technology UCITS ETF. It has 3.31% of its assets in Tesla but is diversified across 84 other stocks. This should give holders sufficient protection while allowing them access to one of the decade’s biggest investment themes.Buying either also avoids the paperwork required by brokers when you buy US stocks.

Sadly, the worst of this is yet to come. Although RFU chief executive Ian Ritchie has promised to “bust a gut” to guide English clubs into a pan-European tournament next season, there are plenty of obstacles in his way. For one, mutual loathing between the Welsh Rugby Union and the regions – a separate issue but certainly one concerning the Heineken Cup – might end up in court. Truly, the sorry saga has showcased everything ugly about professional rugby.Rigid windowsBetween a fine of £60,000 for Northampton allowing George North back to Cardiff and the impending sham that will be the first Test between New Zealand and an understrength England this June, the IRB’s international window needs a re-think.Barefaced media bluffingIrresistible riches across The Channel means Top 14 transfer speculation will continue. That said, it would be nice if coaches were as blunt and honest as Richard Cockerill on the subject. A day after Toby Flood tweeted to say he hadn’t made a decision on his future, the Leicester boss refused to maintain the charade.“Toby rang me on Thursday to say he will not be with us next season,” he told BT Sport. “We move on.”French fancy: Flood is definitely off for Top 14Contrast that with the approach of Bath’s Toby Booth, owner of the stoniest poker face in the Premiership. His words on George Ford back in January now look laughable: “We are disappointed by the speculation. His father, Mike [Bath defensive coach] should know and he hasn’t signed with us because he wants to stay at Leicester – George is categorical about that. And that is direct from Mike.” Guess what happened next.Passable forward passesLaw 12 doesn’t leave much room for ambiguity – “A forward pass occurs when a player passes the ball forward. ‘Forward’ means towards the opposing team’s dead-ball line.”But factor in the notion of relative velocity. Suddenly you need a physics degree and five minutes with the TMO to make a call. Then sometimes a supporting player is allowed to run onto the ball having been flat with the passer, all because there was a hint of ‘backwards hands’. Let’s give sovereignty back to the referees and trust their eyes rather than twiddle our thumbs.Calls for a Lions quotaSelection debates are a delicious part of Lions tradition. With that in mind, most of the consternation surrounding O’Driscoll’s axing for the series finale was both expected and acceptable.However, when people still rubbished the decision after a first victorious tour in 16 years and suggested a quota of players per nation, we entered the realms of the ridiculous. Warren Gatland is often (fairly) criticised for picking on reputation, but this time he knew sentimentality was no substitute for winning. Thank goodness for that. Irresponsible: One of 2013’s lowlights was when a concussed George Smith re-took the field against the LionsBy Charlie MorganLeave festive cheer a minute and embrace your inner Ebenezer Scrooge. Although 2013 provided plenty to celebrate, some aspects of the game were grating. Here is a selection of lowlights.Rucking worriesNot a man on his feet: This horrible ruck is at the Top 14 finalMy opening moan surrounds the breakdown, still a manic battleground shrouded in uncertainty. I believe a vicious cycle that jeopardises player safety has been triggered.Firstly, the concept of supporting bodyweight isn’t properly policed. Nobody should be able to slow possession, let alone win a penalty, with their forearms resting on the ground. However, they have been allowed to – directly bringing about a more sinister issue.Clearing out is now carnage, attackers often plunging off their feet into a pile of bodies. Nobody wants physicality to be compromised, but players propelling themselves at prone opponents like crazed porpoises is an injury epidemic waiting to happen.Concussion careThe sight of Brian O’Driscoll tottering around the pitch against France last March was sickening. So was George Smith’s re-entry to the deciding Lions Test after being reduced to a jelly-legged mess by Richard Hibbard’s granite noggin. Thankfully, these high-profile blunders have brought about heightened awareness and tweaks to IRB protocol. Still, it is too perpetual an issue to ever neglect again.Poor pitchesAllianz Park and Cardiff Arms have produced some enthralling encounters this season in abysmal conditions – think back to the Blues’ gritty, rain-soaked Heineken Cup defeat of Toulon in October or Saracens’ dismantling of Leicester a fortnight ago amid a monsoon. On both occasions, artificial surfaces stayed firm to give the best chance of fluency. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of other grounds.Murrayfield is still cutting up after the autumn and the Millennium Stadium’s turf, a repeat offender, has sunk to farcically low standards. A £3.3 million redevelopment this summer cannot come soon enough. During Les Bleus’ clash with South Africa, the Stade de France was appalling too. Besides anything else, scrums become a perilous shambles. Which leads us onto the next grumble…Not many messes like this: but scrums still eat up timeTime-sapping scrummagingThe first 40 minutes of Wales’ eventual defeat to Australia in Cardiff was among the most exhilarating halves of 2013. But when half-time arrived, something was missing – a breathless period of play had seen precisely zero scrums. Even the most die-hard front-row fans weren’t complaining.Overall, the law trials are working. A new sequence has brought about more stability and rewarded dominant packs. The nauseating “yes, nine” call will probably be phased out and consistent refereeing of the feed has been promised. But frustrating delays remain. Set pieces can take over two minutes to complete, even without re-sets. Add this to a heavy reliance on television match officials (more later) and there are lulls in action. Loyal spectators are getting bored and newcomers are being put off. It’s tough to blame them.The European mess LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The second half of Wales vs. TongaSelf-explanatory really – this was quite simply the most turgid, error-saturated passage of rugby this year. Best banish it from memory. <> at Welford Road on December 8, 2013 in Leicester, England.
News October 1, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Anti-terrorism law among targets of Addis Ababa protest Ethiopia arbitrarily suspends New York Times reporter’s accreditation Organisation Help by sharing this information News May 21, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts May 18, 2021 Find out more Journalist attacked, threatened in her Addis Ababa home to go further News Follow the news on Ethiopia EthiopiaAfrica RSF_en EthiopiaAfrica News A major street protest took place in Addis Ababa on 29 September in response to a call from Unity for Democracy and Justice, an opposition political party headed by the previous president, Dr. Negasso Gidada. The demonstrators protested against the arbitrary detention of journalists, human rights activists and dissidents, which is made possible by the 2009 anti-terrorist law. Independent estimates put the number of demonstrators at between 12,000 and 15,000 while government sources said they were a few hundred.The urgent need to amend this repressive law was of one of the recommendations that Reporters Without Borders included in its submission on Ethiopia to the United Nations Human Rights Council for the 19th Universal Periodic Review session to be held between April and May next year.“The anti-terrorism law is one of the most serious obstacles to the promotion and protection of freedom of information in Ethiopia,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Ever since its adoption, the government has used it as a legal tool to clamp down on dissidents and create a cloud of fear that limits the ambition and activity of the media. “Without taking any position on the politics of the demonstrators, we urge the government to respond to the widespread demand by concerned citizens and activists for immediate and participatory reform of the anti-terrorism law. We also call on the government to respect the freedom of expression of all news and information providers, regardless of their political views.”According to the organizers, the demonstration’s aim was not only to condemn the law but also to demand the release of opposition members and journalists who have been jailed under it. They include activist Eskinder Nega, detained since 15 September 2011 for alleged “links with terrorist organizations and conspiracy to harm national security”.Journalists Reyot Alemu, winner of the 2013 UNESCO/Guillermo Cano press freedom prize, and Woubeshet Taye, the deputy editor of the Amharic-language weekly Awramba Times, have been detained under this law since June 2011. Reyot Alemu has been reportedly subjected to mistreatment including solitary confinement, minimal access to medical care and restricted visits from family and friends. They are serving jail terms of five and 14 years respectively, on charges of “conspiring with a terrorist organization and taking part in planning terror attacks”. Two Swedish journalists working for the Kontinent news agency, reporter Martin Schibbye and photographer Johan Persson, were arrested on 1 July 2011 after illegally entering Ethiopia’s southeastern Ogaden region from Somalia with members of the separatist Ogaden National Liberation Front (ONLF) with the aim of investigating human rights violations in the region. Sentenced to 11 years in prison on a charge of “terrorist activities”, they were released after 450 days in detention thanks to pressure from the international community.In an interview for Reporters Without Borders, Schibbye said: “The mere fact that these protests are taking place is a positive sign in Ethiopia. This shows the growing implication of the youth, namely through social networks, and their refusal to live in a society where journalists and dissidents can be jailed arbitrarily.”Ethiopia is ranked 137th out of 179 countries in the 2013 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.More information about Ethiopia’s anti-terrorism law RSF condemns NYT reporter’s unprecedented expulsion from Ethiopia February 10, 2021 Find out more

LordRunar/iStockBy IVAN PEREIRA, ABC News(LOS ANGELES) — The massive deadly infernos have become the second and third largest fires in state history and as firefighters work tirelessly, businesses in Santa Cruz are being looted.As California continues to battle raging wildfires across the state, it’s getting help from neighbors across the country.The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, or Cal Fire, said it has received assistance from the U.S. military and from other states who have sent firefighters, equipment and other resources to fight the state’s two dozen major fires.Since Aug. 15, there have been nearly 14,000 lightning strikes in the state, and more than 700 wildfires, which have now burned over 1.32 million acres — an area bigger than Delaware, according to Cal Fire.There are roughly 15,000 California firefighters working on the fires, which are predominantly in the central and northern regions. About 91 fire engines from nine western states have been assigned to incidents, according to Cal Fire.New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said that he sent 10 state wildland firefighters to the West Coast to help with California and other states that have seen a jump in dangerous wildfires.“I thank these brave men and women for stepping up and showing just what New York tough really means,” Cuomo said in a statement.The LNU Lightning Complex and the CSU Lightning Complex fires are now ranked No. 2 and No. 3 on the list of all-time biggest wildfires in California history, Cal Fire said. The Mendocino Complex fire in July of 2018 remains the largest.The agency warned that firefighters will have a tough road ahead with new weather conditions. A marine layer is expected to raise the humidity and lower the temperatures in some areas, but winds will be gusting between 15-20 mph, according to Cal Fire.“This can make firefighting conditions challenging during those times for the next couple days,” the agency said in a statement. “Warmer conditions are expected over the weekend. Isolated thunderstorms are still possible in the upper portion of northern California and the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.

The Consumer Protection Division (CPD) of the Office of the Indiana Attorney General is warning people to be suspicious of companies claiming to be affiliated with local high schools and attempting to sell sponsorships.On Jan. 31, the CPD received a consumer complaint against a business claiming to operate as Touchdown Sports. The complainant said the caller claimed to be with Touchdown Sports and to be calling on behalf of Noblesville High School in Indiana. The complainant said the caller was seeking sponsors for the backs of t-shirts that could be passed out during high school sporting events. The complainant also told the CPD that she called Noblesville High School and was informed that the school had no knowledge of the company. This exact scam has been reported in other states.Businesses – especially locally owned companies inside or near the boundaries of an Indiana school district – should be suspicious of anyone calling their phone seeking sponsor partnerships for stadium banners, posters and t-shirts, among other items. The CPD is advising businesses not to contract with companies claiming to represent local schools without first checking with the schools to confirm the relationship with the organization seeking money.In addition to businesses, if parents, staff or residents living inside an Indiana school district are contacted by someone claiming to operate a sponsorship fundraiser for a school, the CPD urges them to contact the school in question to confirm the relationship.If you believe you have been contacted by a fraudulent company or an individual attempting a scam, the CPD encourages you to file a complaint at www.indianaconsumer.com or call our Consumer Assistance Line at (800) 382-5516.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail
In their endorsement of Mayor Winnecke for 4 more years as Mayor, the Courier & Press described me as a “picture of negativity”. For once, the Courier & Press is right.This is not the campaign I wanted to run, however, I feel it is my duty to inform the public of the dangers we face if we do not have a change in leadership.The Mayor is not willing to admit to the sad state of financial affairs of our city, nor is he willing to fix it, so it is my duty to do so.Mayor Winnecke won’t talk about the General Fund reserves depleting from $4 million to $300,000, so I will.Mayor Winnecke won’t talk about our city’s half a billion dollars of debt that continues to rise, so I must.Mayor Winnecke won’t talk about the rising crime rate in our city, so that obligation falls to me.Mayor Winnecke won’t talk about the bad deals he’s made for the city, whether it be Earth Care, or massively subsidizing the downtown hotel with taxpayer dollars, or trying to deny taxpayers their homestead tax credit, so it is my responsibility to do so.I have made all of these points in the numerous debates, forums, and joint appearances throughout this campaign, and Mayor Winnecke has not once refuted these points; because he can’t.Negativity is not the way I wanted to run this campaign, however, I feel it is my duty to make sure you know the truth; that you know the facts of where the city is, and where we are headed.The choices in this election couldn’t be clearer; Change vs More of the same.I want to be Mayor of Evansville so I can meet the challenges before us.I want to bring more transparency and accountability to the Mayor’s office by ensuring that you, the public, know what is going on in my administration and where your tax dollars are going.I will foster an environment that brings in new businesses and jobs, and helps those existing companies expand.I will work to ensure our citizens feel safe in their own neighborhoods.I want to focus on improvements in the entire city, our parks, our streets, our sidewalks, and yes, our sewers.To me, I see problems as opportunities. Let’s solve them together, and let’s make Evansville better together.I look forward to serving as your next Mayor, and would appreciate your vote on November 3rd.Sincerely,Gail RieckenCandidate For the Mayor of EvansvilleFacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail
