Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! The FTSE 100’s market crash of 2020 could lead some investors to refocus their capital on assets such as gold and Bitcoin, rather than stocks. After all, gold and Bitcoin have outperformed the FTSE 100 over recent months, and could continue this trend in the short run.However, the long-term track record of the FTSE 100 shows that it has always fully recovered from its downturns. As such, buying high-quality stocks while they are priced at low levels today could be a sound strategy.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…With that in mind, here are two FTSE 100 shares that could be worth buying today. They could boost your retirement prospects.FTSE 100 housebuilder Taylor WimpeyHousebuilder Taylor Wimpey’s (LSE: TW) recent trading update highlighted its financial strength during a challenging period for the wider industry. It has a cash position of around £836m, which suggests that it is in a strong position to overcome what could be an extended period of lower sales.Demand for new homes may continue to be low over the coming months. With a challenging economic outlook, many prospective house purchasers may decide to postpone their decisions until there is greater clarity surrounding their employment situation. Therefore, even if construction restarts on Taylor Wimpey’s sites, demand for its homes could be weak for a while.However, over the long run the FTSE 100 company may enjoy stronger operating conditions. The UK’s lack of housing supply, low interest rates and government schemes could sustain rising volumes of new homes in the coming years. As such, with Taylor Wimpey’s share price now trading 23% down on its level of the start of 2020, it could offer good value for money for long-term investors.GSKAnother FTSE 100 share that could be worth buying today for the long run is GSK (LSE: GSK). Its recent update highlighted that assessing the financial impact of coronavirus in the current year is likely to be challenging. However, the company maintained its previous guidance after a strong first quarter that included an impressive growth rate across its portfolio.GSK is set to experience a significant amount of change over the coming years. Its plans to divest consumer healthcare interests and shift its focus towards being a pharmaceutical business have continued. Yes, this process may cause some uncertainty in the short run. But it could lead to more focused operations that enable the separate entities to become more efficient.With GSK recently confirming its quarterly dividend, it has a yield of around 4.7%. This suggests that it offers good value for money relative to many of its FTSE 100 index peers. It may also become more popular among income-seeking investors at a time when many large-cap shares are cutting their dividends. This could lead to strong total returns from the stock, which could boost your retirement prospects.center_img Peter Stephens owns shares of GlaxoSmithKline and Taylor Wimpey.

Once registered, anyone donating for a second time only needs to retweet to confirm their donation.James Meers, CEO of #PAY, said:“#PAY is proud to partner with Twitter to support 3FM Serious Request and help develop the future of fundraising by enabling social as a donation channel.” Advertisement  39 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Ag Census shows Indiana in Top Ten for Crop and Ag Sales SHARE SHARE Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – May 4, 2014 Ag Census shows Indiana in Top Ten for Crop and Ag Sales Previous articleIndiana Test Farmer says No Drift with Enlist Weed ControlNext articleCongressional Pressure Mounts on EPA to Withdraw Proposed Waters of the U.S. Rule Andy Eubank  2012 Ag CensusIndiana ranks seventh nationally for crops sales according to the newly released USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service 2012 Census of Agriculture. Indiana ranked 2nd among the states with cropland planted to a cover crop. The Hoosier state is also in the top ten for value of all agricultural products sold. The U.S. total is $395 billion, a 33 percent increase from the last census.“Sales are concentrated in certain pockets across the United States, particularly the Midwest, the mid Atlantic area,” said NASS Statistics Division Director Hubert Hamer. ” California continues to dominate with nearly $43 billion, showing a 26 percent increase, followed by Iowa at $30.8 billion and down the line with Indiana rounding out the top ten at $11.2 billion.”Indiana was number 10 in the last census too, and it realized a nearly $3 billion increase from the 2007 census. But Hamer explained production expenses also rose nationally, and at a higher rate than sales.“I want to contrast production expenditures with the value of ag products sold. It comes in at 36.4 percent above the prior census. That indicates it is rising at a higher rate than the value of ag products sold.”NASS Acting Administrator Joseph Reilly said family ownership of farms is stable in the new census.“Family ownership still is the predominate trend in the country with around 87 percent of all the farms in this country still being family owned and operated, and that has stayed relatively stable from the last census.”The number of Hoosier farms dropped by 2,243, going from 60,938 in 2007 to 58,695 in 2012. Land in acres dropped by almost 53,000, and the average age of the principal Indiana operator rose .8 to 55.8 years.Indiana operators that reported on-farm renewable energy producing systems totaled 2,397, ranking the state 5th.State statistician Greg Matli says Indiana farmers again ranked near the top in response rate, tied for 5th with the 83 percent response rate.New and expanded data in this census includes the renewable energy production and Internet access. See the breakdown at https://www.agcensus.usda.gov/, and hear more from Matli by listening to the HAT audio report.From Indiana NASS:Friday at noon the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) released the final 2012 Census of Agriculture results sharing a wide-range of information about what agricultural products were raised in the United States in 2012, and where, how and by whom they were grown. The data, which is reported at the national, state and county level, will help farmers, ranchers, local officials, agribusiness and others make decisions for the future.“The 2012 Census of Agriculture provides a wide range of demographic, economic, land, and crop and livestock production information as well as first-time or expanded data,” said Greg Matli, State Statistician. “Many of these data about Indiana and our counties are only collected and reported as part of the every-five-year census.”The 2012 Census of Agriculture data show the following key findings for Indiana:*Cropland planted to a cover crop (excluding CRP) with 596,062 acres.*Indiana ranked 2nd among the states with cropland planted to a cover crop.*Irrigated harvested cropland at 436,004 acres.*2,397 farms reported renewable energy producing systems.*Indiana ranked 5th among the states with renewable energy producing systems.“I would like to thank all of the operators who responded to the Census of Agriculture because without their input this level of detailed data down to the county level would not be possible” Matli said.Number of Indiana Farms: 2012, 58,695; 2007, 60,938; change: -2,243Land in Farms (acres:) 2012, 14,720,396; 2007, 14,773,184; change: -52,788Average Age of Principal Operator in Indiana: 2012, 55.8; 2007, 55.0; change: +.8For more information about the Census of Agriculture including all the final 2012 Census of Agriculture results, and tools to access and share the data, visit www.agcensus.usda.gov.

Court keeps Syrian reporter in pre-trial detention

The details of the charges against him were finally given to his lawyers at this hearing, but they were not made public and an earlier court order bans his lawyers from saying anything about the case.“The extension of Farahat’s pre-trial detention without explanation is an abuse of authority,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We still do not know if the charges brought against him are linked to his work as a journalist. As we cannot take a position on the substance of this case, which is subject to censorship, we call on the Israeli authorities to ensure that this journalist’s rights are fully respected.”The next hearing is scheduled for 27 August.___________________________________________________________20.08 – Golan Heights-based reporter held for past three weeksReporters Without Borders called today for the immediate release of Ata Farahat (photo), the correspondent of Syrian public television and the daily newspaper Al-Watan in the Golan Heights, who was arrested on 30 July and is currently held in Al-Jalama prison (14 km southeast of Haifa). His lawyers and the press have been banned from talking about the case. The Golan Heights have been annexed by Israel since 1981.“The Israeli authorities have so far given no explanation for the arrest of this journalist, who still does not know what he is charged with,” the press freedom organisation said. “Has Farahat been arrested simply because he works for Syrian news organisations? This possibility cannot be ruled out for the time being.”Reporters Without Borders added: “There can, furthermore, be no grounds for the order issued by the judicial authorities forbidding Farahat’s lawyers and the Israeli media from referring to the case. We call on the judges to lift this act of censorship.”Members of the Yassam special forces burst into Farahat’s home in Buqata (in the north of the Golan Heights) at around 3 a.m. on 30 July, carried out a search and then took him away. He has been brought three times before a Tel Aviv judge, who each time renewed a provisional detention order.When Reporters Without Borders reached one of Farahat’s lawyers, Majd Abou Saleh, he said he could say nothing about the case for fear of violating the court’s orders.Israel Press Council secretary-general Avi Weinberg told Reporters Without Borders the Israeli courts were issuing this kind of order with increasing frequency. “As official military censorship is not very effective, the courts are nowadays being used to restrict the work of journalists. Requests by prosecutors or the security forces for restrictions on the coverage of certain cases are too readily granted by judges.” The media have been able to get such bans lifted in the past.Farahat is due to appear in court again on 22 August.

Moved by Justice for Rights Foundation, the petition also wants the educational institutions to be restricted from asking for a lump sum amount or payment of outstanding fees. The Petitioner submits that parents are unable to pay the fees for educational institutions due to the financial constraints caused by the shutting down of businesses and cancellation of wages resulting from nationwide lockdown. Payment of fees for the next semester, the Petitioner argues, would further dampen their current financial situation and would compel many students to choose between basic essential commodities required to survive lockdown and to effectively exercise their right to uninterrupted education. ‘Further, right to education can only have effective meaning if it is read as a right to continuous and uninterrupted education, the reality also remains that many students and parents are supporting their educational endeavors with the help of educational or friendly loans, which further add to the burden’, the petition argues. It is further submitted by the Petitioner that the concerned authorities have passed no such order for colleges and universities providing concession or relief to students and parents, which is equally important for smooth continuation of studies for college students. Therefore, it is the case of the Petitioner that the nonchalant and non-serious approach of the Government is causing mental health issues to the students and is seriously affecting their well being.Click here to download the Petition Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

The Bench of Justice Arun Monga was hearing the case of parents litigating over the custody of their minor daughter “Kyna”, currently aged 6 years. Background of the matter The Husband & Wife got separated from each other in October, 2017 and at the time of separation, the minor daughter was in the physical custody of mother. Allegedly, on 19th January 2018, she was taken by her father/ petitioner and his family in a deceitful manner from her, stating that the grand parents wanted to be with their granddaughter for few days. The mother further alleged that the custody of minor daughter was never handed back to her thereafter. Several meetings and Panchayats were convened but the custody was not restored. On the other hand, allegation of the petitioner/husband was that the respondent-wife had willfully abandoned her matrimonial home and even the custody of minor child had been willfully handed over to the petitioner/father. Controversy before the Court The proceedings under Sections 10 and 25 of the Guardian and Wards Act were initiated before the Family Court, Panipat The Family Court, Panipat vide an interim order, declined daughter’s custody to the respondent-wife, leading to the filing of an appeal before the Division Bench of P&H HC by the Wife/Mother. The DB appeal was disposed of on 13th December 2019 with a direction to the Family Court at Panipat to conclude the proceedings expeditiously, preferably within a period of 5 months However, when the Panipat Court kept the matter for recording the evidence for its expeditious disposal, the Father of the minor took a plea that the Family Court, where a minor child ‘ordinarily’ resides only had the territorial jurisdiction to deal with the Case. In this case, it was argued that since the child was in physical custody of father/petitioner at Jagadhari/Yamunanagar, and so in order to avoid unnecessary travelling of the minor child to appear before the Family Court at Panipat, proceedings ought to have been instituted before the Family Court at Jagadhri where minor child is currently residing with her father. So, the Court was dealing with the controversy as to whether the Family Court at Panipat (where the mother is residing) had the territorial jurisdiction to entertain the petition instituted by the mother/ respondent to seek the custody of her daughter? Court’s Observations The Court noted, “The Petitioner (Father), having once acquiesced to the jurisdiction by not raising the issue of territorial jurisdiction before the Division Bench or not seeking leave to pursue the same or even otherwise also not pointing out that he would be pressing for the same through the instant proceedings, the said issue cannot be raised at this belated stage, as the same would defeat the very purpose of directions issued by Division Bench of this Court.” Further, the Court, while perusing Section 6 of Hindu Minorities and Guardians Act, 1956 observed that the custody of child below five years would ordinarily lie with mother. The Court also noted, “At the time of separation, the custody was with the mother and she was indeed admitted in School at Panipat where she was residing after separation and her age at the time of institution of petition by the wife was 03 years and 07 months.” In the aforesaid premise, the Court interpreted section 6 (a) Hindu Minorities and Guardians Act, 1956 to mean and intend that even though a minor below five years may not be in physical custody/residing with mother, but her/ his custody would be deemed to be at a place where the mother is residing. The Court specifically said that at the time of instituting proceedings before the family court, the mother was the deemed natural guardian of the minor child and therefore, the natural custody would also be presumed to be with mother, regardless of the place where the child was actually residing physically at the that time. The Court also observed that the relevant consideration and cut-off date for consideration as to whether Family Court, Panipat had territorial jurisdiction, was the date on which the petition was filed, when admittedly minor daughter was less than 5 years of age. “Her mother/ respondent-wife was, therefore, well within her right to invoke territorial jurisdiction of Family Court at Panipat”, said the Court.

Old Christmas warms hearts

first_img The night that the Christ Child was born so long ago might not have been so different from the icy, cold of Old Christmas night 2010.Those who attended Old Christmas at Clay Hill Wednesday night were reminded in a very personal way that Mary gave birth to the Savior of the world in a lowly, cold stable.That’s the way of worship at Old Christmas at Clay Hill. In that way, it puts things into perspective. Skip “The service was what Christmas is all about,” said Marilyn Weed, who portrayed Mary on the cold Old Christmas night. “The story, the carols — with all of the glitz and glitter taken away– made Christmas more personal.”Old lamps and frosty windows set the scene. The music played on traditional instruments set the tone and the scriptures from the Gospels of Luke and Matthew told the story of Christmas night when Jesus was born and Old Christmas when the Wise Men arrived to worship the Christ Child.“We can tell those who didn’t come that they missed one of the best Old Christmases ever,” said Don Renfroe. “This was a very impressive service.” Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Lee said being a part of the Old Christmas service will now be a part of the Benton family tradition.The historic Clay Hill Methodist Church is usually filled on Old Christmas but there were other events that took people away and the extremely cold weather was also a factor.“But those who came, were blessed, truly blessed,” said the Rev. Michael Lawler, pastor of Brundidge United Methodist Church.Ron Jackson stilled every heart and touched every heart with the old spiritual “Sweet Little Jesus Boy, Sweet little Holy Child. We didn’t know who you was.”“Old Christmas is always a very spiritual and uplifting service,” said Mary Adams.“Even in the cold, hearts are warmed.” Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Sponsored Content Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Email the author Latest Stories Old Christmas warms hearts Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson By Jaine Treadwell Each year, Renfroe is one of the Wise Men, for him, it is a special time of worship and celebration.Alex and Lee Benton joined Calvin Bodiford and Dan Fraley as musicians for the old-time event.“We enjoyed being a part of Old Christmas at Clay Hill,” Alex said.“It’s good to learn about traditions and to help keep them going.” Published 11:23 pm Wednesday, January 6, 2010 Book Nook to reopen Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Acid Reflux (Watch Now)Healthy LifestyleIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?
