See all posts by Jabran Khan The global pandemic hit few companies harder in 2020 than IAG (LSE:IAG). Covid-19 and the economic downturn managed to wipe out thousands of jobs and billions in revenue. The outlook for 2021 is uncertain too.The IAG share price was one of the biggest losers of 2020, which is why I am avoiding it and looking elsewhere to bolster my portfolio.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…IAG share price woesOn 4 January 2020, I could purchase IAG for 454p per share. As I write, the IAG share price is hovering near 140p which is close to a 70% decrease in value. The global pandemic grounded planes and placed billions across the world in lockdowns. Public health measures included severe travel restrictions for months on end which decimated the airline industry.While 2020 was a year to forget, there is a chance 2021 could be better. Personally, however, I am not convinced right now.The IAG share price did receive a boost in November. At that time, successful Covid-19 vaccine results provided a rare spark for the whole of the stock market. In addition, the British Airways owner also has a resilient balance sheet which could help in 2021 and beyond.However, a number of new strains of Covid-19 have caused further setbacks for IAG and the airline industry. Also, the UK will not complete its vaccine rollout until at least September. This means a summer holiday may be out of the question and impact airlines further. The IAG share price is currently on my no fly list.FTSE 100 stock flying highOcado Group (LSE:OCDO) was one of the top performers for 2020. Its share price nearly doubled and trading levels increased exponentially due to the pandemic. In fact, its share price over the past five years has risen nearly 850%! The online food shopping firm has seen a huge increase in trading due to the lockdown, which I believe could continue into 2021.In its most recent trading update in December for Q4, Ocado showed an average of 360,000 orders per week. This is a 3% growth over the same period last year. In turn, revenue grew by close to 35% compared to the same period. This reporting period was before the third lockdown was announced. The addition of selling Marks & Spencer food through its retail division and unprecedented demand across its services has led Ocado to bolster its full-year profit forecast by an additional £20m and potentially more. It is also expanding into clothing and general merchandise too, which I believe is the first step towards global expansion.I must admit that OCDO shares are expensive, currently trading at 2765p as I write, unlike the beleaguered IAG share price. However Ocado is priced for global growth at a rapid speed. This does mean any setbacks that occur may hit hard so that must not be ignored.Ocado over IAGThe IAG share price isn’t of interest to me right now and I wouldn’t even view it as a contrarian buy. I will still keep an eye on developments, however. Instead, for 2021 and beyond, I see Ocado growing further and continuing its impressive rise. In addition to Ocado, here is a stock I see making me a passive income too.

TVi under surveillance?

first_img June 22, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 TVi under surveillance? UkraineEurope – Central Asia Receive email alerts News RSF_en March 26, 2021 Find out more News ————————————————–10.06.2010 : Judicial system being used to eliminate TV stations, journalists sayReporters Without Borders condemns a Kiev court’s decision on 8 June to cancel the licences of TV5 Kanal and TVi, two stations that are regarded as critical of President Viktor Yanukovych’s administration, especial TVi, which regularly interviews independent experts or opposition figures who openly criticise the government.On 7 June, the eve of the court’s decision, the journalists at TV 5 Kanal released the text of an open letter to the president claiming they were being harassed by the SBU, Ukraine’s main security agency. Calling for the protection of their rights under the constitution, they said they wanted to meet with Yanukovych to explain their fear that their station was about to be broken up.Their fears were confirmed by the 8 June decision cancelling the allocation of TV broadcast frequencies announced on 27 January, several weeks before the current administration took office. Under the 27 January decision, TV5 Kanal was allocated 26 frequencies, TVi got 33 and the Inter group got just 20. The court, which issued its ruling in response to a legal appeal by the Inter group, also withdrew the licences of TV5 Kanal and TVi. The journalists of TV5 Kanal and TVi gave a joint news conference yesterday at which they called for the creation of an independent parliamentary commission to investigate the incompatibility of Valery Khoroshkovky’s simultaneous positions as head of the SBU and member of the supreme court and the conflict of interests resulting from the fact that he also owns the Inter group. He should be suspended from his official posts while the investigation went ahead, they said.The journalists from the two stations also called for public supervision of the National Council of Television and Radio Broadcasting and an end to the use of the judicial system to get rid of news media, which is what has been happening ever since the presidential election (held in late January and early February), they said.Reporters Without Borders voices its support for the two TV stations, their condemnation of an unprecedented and unacceptable conflict of interests and their call for Khoroshkovky to resign from some of his positions. The multiple posts held by Khoroshkovky are incompatible in a democracy with the principles of freedom of expression and impartial regulation of the media. Reporters Without Borders also believes that is vital that the National Council of Television and Radio Broadcasting should be impartial and free of external pressure.Mykola Knyazhytsky, the head of TVi, and Ivan Adamchuk, the head of TV5 Kanal, said they would appeal against the court’s decision. The National Council of Television and Radio Broadcasting has meanwhile announced that a new allocation of frequencies will be carried out in a completely transparent manner. But that does not mean there will be no political pressure.This crisis comes just days after several dozen journalists wore T-shirts with the legend “Stop the censorship” at the news conference which President Yanukovych gave on 4 June to mark the completion of his first 100 days in office. The journalists, allied in the “Stop the censorship” collective, did this to draw attention to the problems the media have been experiencing since February. Many of the TV5 Kanal and TVi journalists are members of the collective.When the president was offered one of the T-shirts, he told the journalists they had his support. “No one is putting pressure on you and no one will,” he said. “I want to cooperate with you, I want us to work together to find ways to eradicate press freedom violations.”People attending the news conference said the president appeared to be expecting the demonstration and seemed to be ready to respond to questions about censorship. Yanukovych added that if they had “concrete examples,” he was “ready to support” their movement. Journalists demonstrated again in Kiev on 6 June.Reporters Without Borders continues to be concerned about the situation of the media, which has deteriorated markedly since President Yanukovych took office in February. The press freedom organisation is due to visit Ukraine next month at the president’s invitation. Ukrainian media group harassed by broadcasting authority Follow the news on Ukraine News News Ukraine escalates “information war” by banning three pro-Kremlin media UkraineEurope – Central Asia Reporters Without Borders is very concerned to learn that the privately-owned television station TVi appears to under surveillance by the Ukrainian intelligence services A video filmed by Roman Skrypin shows a vehicle parked outside the TV station monitoring the activities of its employees. In a public statement addressed to President Viktor Yanukovych, prosecutor general Oleksander Medvedko and interior minister Anatoli Mohyliov, TVi director general Mykola Knyazhytskiy has accused the SBU, Ukraine’s main security agency, of being responsible for this surveillance. He also claims he is being followed.Three of the occupants of the vehicle, which has a false number plate, can be seen in the video. When Skrypin asks them what they are doing outside the TV station, they hide their faces and refuse to answer his questions. Then they drive off quickly, jumping a red light.Reporters Without Borders condemns this kind of harassment, which is unworthy of a country such as Ukraine. The press freedom organisation is also surprised that, after announcing plans for an ad hoc committee to investigate censorship allegations, parliament has just postponed its creation. In view of the gravity of the allegations, Reporters Without Borders fails to understand the reasons for this decision, which just fuels suspicions about Ukraine’s politicians.NBM and Express-Inform, the companies that own TV5 Kanal, have meanwhile filed an appeal before a Kiev administrative court against an 8 June court ruling cancelling the allocation of TV broadcast frequencies that was announced in January.TVi, for its part, is challenging presidential decree 644/2010 appointing Valeriy Khoroshkovskiy to the supreme court. It was Khoroshkovskiy’s media group Inter that appealed against the January allocation of frequencies.

Law Enforcement Torch Run gathers at Odessa Police Department

first_img Twitter By Digital AIM Web Support – February 24, 2021 WhatsApp Law Enforcement Torch Run gathers at Odessa Police Department Local NewsLaw Enforcement Facebook TAGS  Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) volunteers, representing officers from across West Texas gathered in front of the Odessa Police Department to kick off the Law Enforcement Torch Run West Texas Leg on April 30. The run is Special Olympics’ largest grassroots fund-raiser and public awareness vehicle. The Odessa Police Department is proud to have represented this organization over the past 25 years and to continue being a part of this great cause. Law enforcement officers ran from Third Street and Golder Avenue to the Odessa Police Department at approximately 9:30 a.m. A brief program was held the program and OPD officers led the torch runners south on Grant Avenue to Murphy Street carrying the ceremonial torch to kick off the West Texas Leg. In Texas, the Law Enforcement Torch Run began in 1985. At its most basic level, the Torch Run is a running event where officers and athletes run the Special Olympics “Flame of Hope” to the opening ceremonies of competitions being held this year in Arlington. The Torch Run program also encompasses a variety of fundraising vehicles such as merchandise sales, donations or pledges for runners, corporate donations, and special events. In 2018, Texas Torch Runners across the state raised approximately $3 million dollars for The Special Olympic Program.center_img Pinterest Facebook Twitter Pinterest WhatsApp Previous articlePHS Night of Percussion setNext articleCar_show_051719_01.jpg Digital AIM Web Supportlast_img read more

Calibrated seismic imaging of eddy-dominated warm-water transport across the Bellingshausen Sea, Southern Ocean

first_imgSeismic reflection images of thermohaline circulation from the Bellingshausen Sea, adjacent to the West Antarctica Peninsula, were acquired during February 2015. This survey shows that bright reflectivity occurs throughout the upper 300 m. By calibrating these seismic images with coeval hydrographic measurements, intrusion of warm water features onto the continental shelf at Marguerite and Belgica Troughs is identified and characterized. These features have distinctive lens‐shaped patterns of reflectivity with lengths of 0.75–11.00 km and thicknesses of 100–150 m, suggesting that they are small mesoscale to submesoscale eddies. Abundant eddies are observed along a transect that crosses Belgica Trough. Near Alexander Island Drift, a large, of order urn:x-wiley:21699275:media:jgrc22803:jgrc22803-math-0001 km3, bowl‐like feature, that may represent an anticyclonic Taylor column, is imaged on a pair of orthogonal images. A modified iterative procedure is used to convert seismic imagery into maps of temperature that enable the number and size of eddies being transported onto the shelf to be quantified. Finally, analysis of prestack shot records suggests that these eddies are advecting southward at speeds of urn:x-wiley:21699275:media:jgrc22803:jgrc22803-math-0002 m s−1, consistent with limited legacy hydrographic measurements. Concentration of observed eddies south of the Southern Antarctic Circumpolar Current Front implies they represent both a dominant, and a long‐lived, mechanism of warm‐water transport, especially across Belgica Trough. Our observations suggest that previous estimates of eddy frequency may have been underestimated by up to 1 order of magnitude, which has significant implications for calculations of ice mass loss on the shelf of the West Antarctic Peninsula.last_img read more

O.C. School District Focuses on Reopening Plans

first_imgStudents will have virtual classes Monday. By MADDY VITALEOcean City School district officials, like others in the state, have a lot to consider when determining how to go about safely reopening schools in the fall, combining in-person and remote learning options.With September nearing, decisions will need to be made sooner than later. Officials in the Ocean City school district created the School District’s Return to School committees, which are dedicated to a reopening plan.Administrators, educators, parents and students have been navigating the new normal amid COVID-19. Ocean City schools went virtual back in March along with the rest of the schools in the state per Gov. Phil Murphy’s executive order.Schools Superintendent Dr. Kathleen Taylor said in a statement Tuesday, “As we navigate these uncharted waters of returning to school in the fall, I know that we are all committed to the same goals and that is to provide a quality educational program for our students. We are all in this together as we face the challenges put before all of us in this unprecedented time.”She also discussed the hybrid model of remote and in-person learning in a letter posted on the district’s website www.oceancityschools.org.In it, she explained how the district was looking at the hybrid model to continue delivering high-quality education to the students.“The School District is looking at how we can feasibly offer options to our parents/guardians regarding an instructional model for September, both remotely and in-person,” she stated. “Our hybrid in-person plan will strive to meet the 6 feet social distancing guideline.”She added in the letter, dated July 17, that within the next few weeks the district will present to families the proposed remote and in-person plans.At that time, families will also receive a survey for selecting the best available option for their child.“School District’s Return to School committees continue to develop details for our Reopening Plan. We will provide you updates on our progress and decisions through letters, Swift K-12 messenger, our district website, and social media posts,” Dr. Taylor explained in the letter.She also emphasized that the district must submit a reopening plan to the New Jersey Department of Education for review. The tentative plan will then be presented at the Board of Education meeting at 7 p.m. on Aug. 5 at Ocean City High School.“Our committees know that there is no perfect plan and that many of the decisions we are making are based on set guidelines that are out of our control,” Dr. Taylor wrote. “However, we are using our surveys of both parents and staff to work within the parameters we’ve been given to craft the best plan for the Ocean City School District.”On July 24, the state DOE issued clarifying guidance to allow parents to select fulltime remote learning for their children for the 2020-2021 school year.Back in June, the state created “The Road Back: Restart and Recovery Plan for Education.”In it, the state emphasized that schools should prepare plans to open in some capacity for in-person instruction. Since its release, the department received feedback from many parents who wanted a greater voice in the decision-making process of whether their child should return to in-person learning, according to a release on the governor’s website.“My office and the Department of Education are committed to working with our families, educators, and administrators as we navigate the unique challenges that the 2020-2021 school year will bring,” Gov. Murphy said in the July 24 release.He continued, “We will continue to communicate with our districts and will work diligently to find solutions that prioritize the safety of our students and staff. Today’s guidance will allow parents greater flexibility to make the choice they feel best suits the needs of their families.”Dr. Taylor stressed in her letter that the district will follow the governor’s mandate and state DOE’s guidelines, “to bring our students back for in-person instruction as safely as possible, but we also acknowledge that some families may not be comfortable with an in-person return.”For more information on Ocean City schools, visit www.oceancityschools.org.
