But the combative economist faced plenty of criticism, with deputy prime minister Nick Clegg leading the offensive, branding him as the man in charge when City bankers “were gorging themselves on bonuses and lending irresponsibly.”Balls called for a fresh £3.5bn tax on bankers’ bonuses. whatsapp
Enter Your Email Address Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. See all posts by Tezcan Gecgil, PhD I believe that buying FTSE 100 shares that pay reliable dividends can be an excellent strategy for generating retirement income.Keeping your money in cash or a savings account may not always be the best way to secure a wealthy retirement. The interest earned in a savings account often doesn’t even cover inflation. 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…On the other hand, Britons know we’ve an important investment structure that comes with legal tax advantages — ISAs. So if you’re looking to invest your hard-earned cash in June, I’d consider learning more about the different types of ISA available to you, with an emphasis on Stocks and Shares ISAs.Currently, there’s a maximum subscription allowance of £20,000 per adult per tax year. As our tax year runs from 6 April to 5 April, so the deadline for individuals to contribute to the previous year’s ISA is April 5 2021. Yet I’d urge readers to not wait until April next year to start. No two scenarios are the same when it comes to planning for retirement. However, the recent market decline provides ample opportunities for creating a portfolio that may suit your needs and fit a long-term investment horizon. And stocks with robust dividends would add nicely to your retirement income stream.So, with that said, here’s my top FTSE 100 dividend share pick to buy in June to provide you with extra income in retirement.Investing in BHPHeadquartered in Melbourne, Australia, BHP (LSE: BHP) is one of my first choices for dividend investing. It has diversified operations across several divisions including iron ore, copper, aluminium, and petroleum. It purchases and operates long-life, large commodity-producing resource assets such as coal mines or iron quarries.Analysts consider its portfolio of assets to be among the highest quality in the world. They emphasise that copper, in particular, has especially good fundamentals that look set to continue for many years to come. And the diversified portfolio is underpinned by a strong balance sheet.In its April quarterly report, the group underlined that it expects to continue generating solid cash flow for the rest of the year. Given the current uncertainty regarding various coronavirus-related disruptions many companies face, investors were also pleased to learn that its full-year unit cost guidance remains unchanged for the 2020 financial year. Its supply chains remain open too.BHP’s quarterly update showed that demand in China, an important market, has also been strengthening in recent weeks. And Australia’s economic conditions are starting to look more favourable than some weeks ago. However, demand for its products has slowed somewhat in several other markets, such as the US. On 21 July, management is expected to provide an operational review for the year ended 30 June.Year-to-date, BHP stock is down about 11%. But the month of May was rather strong for the group and the stock was up close to 19%. Investors are hopeful that the global easing of various lockdown measures may benefit the stock.The current share price of 1,581p supports a dividend yield of 7.35%. Shares of this FTSE 100 stalwart are expected to go ex-dividend in September. Given the current P/E of 10.5 and the strength of assets, I’d consider buying the dips.

ArchDaily Architects: Harunatsu-Arch Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” Photographs: Kai NakamuraText description provided by the architects. It takes 40 minutes by ferry from the nearest island with an airport to reach Iriomote-Island, which is a part of Okinawa in the south of Japan. With an area of over 90% covered by subtropical virgin forest, the entire island is designated as a national park. The client had lived on Iriomote-Island for 14 years. Now he wanted to build his own house.While sitting snug against a hill, at the front of the house a luxorious vision opens up overlooking the farmlands that spread around the site.Save this picture!© Kai NakamuraRecommended ProductsWoodTechnowoodPergola SystemsWindowsVitrocsaMinimalist Window – SlidingWoodParklex International S.L.Wood cladding – FacadeWindowsOTTOSTUMM | MOGSWindow Systems – BronzoFinestra B40The necessary rooms included the living and dining room, a parent‘s bedroom, kitchen, toilet, a bathroom and a storage room that would be large enough for farming tools. The bedroom has two doors so that a separate children‘s room can be created – as there is no high school on the island, this solution is for a limited time only.Save this picture!© Kai NakamuraThe site being of generous dimensions, there was no use for a roof terrace. Leaving out the rain gutter, the gabled roof lets the rain water run over the fascade to wash away accumulating salt crystals. The west side of the house opens up to the beautiful landscape. Wide eaves protect against the sun, which is five times stronger than on the main island. The spacious terrace is also used to wash and dry agricultural tools.Save this picture!© Kai NakamuraWooden sliding doors (Amado) close the house against the taiphoon, which can last several days. During that time, because of power outages, electric air conditioning cannot be used. For that reason, to still be able to open the windows during a taiphoon, wind protection nets can be installed on the eaves.Save this picture!PlantaThe usable area amounts to about 70 square meters. This is by no means large, but thanks to the amazing views of the landscape, there is never a feeling of narrowness. For the client, living on the island means to return to the fundamental basics of life. To wake up, to work, to eat, to drink, to go to bed. Deep personal relationships form the local community on the island. Embedded in the surrounding area, it is a simple life in a little house. The new house has already become a part of Iriomote-Island.

‘Big brotherish’ Google cancels charity’s campaigning ads Tagged with: Digital Individual giving Oceana claims that it can’t find anything in the Google’s terms and conditions that could explain this rejection, except the catch-all clause in their Editorial Guidelines that entitles them to act to “Maintain Google Standards.” The non-profit concludes: “So what are you allowed and not allowed to say in a Google ad? What companies are you prohibited from criticizing? Who knows?”Clearly non-profits and charities from time to time publicise messages that criticise companies and governments. Will Google no longer accept adverts promoting these campaigns? Are they doing so for reasons of editorial integrity, to protect themselves from accusations of libel, or because the companies criticised are likely to have a higher advertising spend than their non-profit critics? If this issue concerns you then you can support Oceana in its online campaign to ask Google to explain its policy. About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Howard Lake | 16 February 2004 | News International environmental organisation Oceana says that search engine Google has refused to publish its paid-for advert to promote its “stop cruise pollution” campaign because it contained “language critical of the cruise industry”.Search engine Google has for a few years been an essential tool in promoting a Web site, whether through its free listings or paid-for keyword-related text adverts. Charities have benefited from its free public service announcement spaces, and some have paid to ensure their text ads appear when certain words are searched for at the site.Now it appears that Google will not accept certain charity adverts, particularly if they campaign against the activities of companies. Oceana bought two Google AdWords adverts, one of them a general advert to promote their main Web site, and another to help raise awareness of their ongoing campaign to stop cruise pollution. Two days after the ads started running, “Google shut them down”. Oceana say that Google explained the cancellation because the adverts linked to sites that contained “language critical of Royal Caribbean”, a cruise ship company, and “language critical of the cruise industry.” Needless to say, Oceana was not happy with this and criticised Google for its “misguided, Big Brotherish policy.” Advertisement 27 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis
The 750 striking Harvard University Dining Service workers — cooks, dishwashers, servers and cashiers — brought multibillion-dollar Harvard University to its knees on Oct. 25, 2016. After a three-week strike, the university bosses caved, giving the members of UNITE HERE Local 26 even more than they had initially demanded. Most importantly, all the health care takeaways the Harvard Corporation had demanded were off the table. The strike victory holds valuable lessons for workers and oppressed in the age of global capitalism — particularly under the Trump administration and the rise of fascist, racist elements. Workers World’s Martha Grevatt interviewed Chief Steward Ed Childs, a cook and leader in Local 26 for more than 40 years. This is the fourth in a series of articles based on the interviews where Childs explains how the workers won.We had no illusions that we could beat this country’s oldest corporation — Harvard Corporation, which follows the dictates of Wall Street — by just going through the motions of picketing each worksite. Our tactics were all militant, class-struggle tactics: constant pickets, marches and rallies with raucous chanting and constant drumming on plastic buckets. You could hear us all over campus and in classrooms.Beating back the attack on health care — saving it from the 1% — is the beginning of something with national and international significance. People see Trump attacking even the limited Affordable Care Act and feel hopeless about the fight for health care. We showed we can win.By the third week, Harvard’s position was crumbling. We pushed them over the edge when students occupied the building where we were negotiating. Seizing the means of production isn’t just about factories. When you are up against a for-profit university, where finance capital trains its own, a classroom building is the means of production.Occupations are a left tactic communists perfected in the 1930s. As Sam Marcy explained in the book “High Tech, Low Pay,” “Seizure and occupation of the plants and other facilities have the effect of hastening a crisis in the relationship between the employers and the workers. … It can change the form of the struggle, take it out of its narrow confines and impart to it a broader perspective. In truth, it brings to the surface a new working-class perspective on the struggle between the workers and the bosses. It says in so many words that we are not tied to a one-dimensional type of struggle with the bosses at a time when they have the levers of political authority in their hands.”That is as true in a restaurant, hospital or university as inside a plant.In the middle of the occupation, the Boston Globe and the Boston Herald, which had not covered us since the first day, suddenly had an editorial saying to settle with the workers. TV news, which had been negative, said the same. Even Harvard’s own press people told the media to say it was time for Harvard to settle.Now the UNITE HERE International has claimed the Harvard strike as its own. Because it was so successful and had so much support, they wanted to call for a general strike on Inauguration Day. The international president of the union could not convince anyone in the AFL-CIO, but he said that the Harvard strike proves it can be done. The union also asked its employers to give workers the day off to protest immigrant-bashing. Would this be happening inside our union if we had not waged a successful strike against Harvard — and indirectly against Wall Street?Employing communist tacticsWith the strike victory behind us, we need to absorb its lessons. What is the role of communists in unions: What do they do? All of our tactics have to be viewed as Leninist tactics as distinct from ultra-leftism. We need to revive a revolutionary Leninist union perspective and not let Lenin’s union work be lost.What Lenin wrote in “Left-Wing Communism: An Infantile Disorder” describes revolutionary tactics to a “T.” Lenin was worried that his experience leading to the success of the Russian Revolution would be lost because Russia was a backward country and the bourgeoisie was organizing to crush it.Union leaders like Samuel Gompers in the U.S. and others in Europe laughed at Lenin, but Lenin said to fight it out with the labor bureaucracy!Look at the union leadership in the U.S. since the American Federation of Labor’s founding in 1886. There have only been six presidents: Gompers, Green, Meany, Kirkland, Sweeney, Trumka — the first three were for life. But Lenin said to stay in the unions.There has been a debate in the labor movement about what won our strike, but it was classic Leninism: We won with a political struggle. I’ve learned from Sam Marcy, Milt Neidenberg and others how we struggle — “mild in manner, bold in matter” — by bringing the officials along but controlling our message and getting the politics across. If we ignore the fact that this was led and nurtured by communists, we lose half the meaning of this strike.All of my work in the union has been about applying a classic Marxist-Leninist approach to a current situation. Workers World Party has been the guiding light of this union from the time when we first organized, through past strikes and last year’s battle. Workers World was the only news source anywhere to chronicle every event of the strike from the workers’ viewpoint.What Marx wrote in “Trade Unions: Their Past, Present and Future” in 1866 applies totally today: “Apart from their original purposes, [unions] must now learn to act deliberately as organizing centers of the working class, in the broad interest of its complete emancipation. They must aid every social and political movement tending in that direction. Considering themselves and acting as the champion representatives of the whole working class, that cannot fail to enlist the non-society [workers] into their ranks.“They must look carefully after the interests of the worst paid trades, such as the agricultural laborers [and today the service proletariat, including precarious workers], rendered powerless by exceptional circumstances. They must convince the world at large that their efforts, far from being narrow and selfish, aim at the emancipation of the downtrodden millions.”Workers World Party First Secretary Larry Holmes, speaking to party labor cadre in September, brought this up to date: “The organization of the working class must advance to encompass larger and larger numbers, whatever their circumstances — not based on an industry or a country, but on overthrowing capitalism.”Phebe Eckfeldt, Steve Gillis, Martha Grevatt, Steve Kirschbaum, Milt Neidenberg and Minnie Bruce Pratt contributed to this series of articles.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

This was in context of the Division Bench’s observation that “in these times of a global pandemic of the Covid-19 disease, stringent measures have been taken, and severe restrictions have been imposed, both by the Government of India and the State Government to prevent its further spread”. The Chief Justice-led bench was hearing a PIL where the jurisdiction of the Court was invoked by the petitioner complaining that, though Haridwar district did not see any increase in Covid-19 cases, it was nonetheless classified as red zone, while districts Dehradun, Udham Singh Nagar and Nainital, which saw a surge in Covid-19 cases, were classified as orange zone. The bench had at an earlier date noted that in Lockdown 4.0, which commenced on 18th May, 2020, the Government of India has left the matter, of classifying districts or areas into different coloured zones or containment zones, to respective State Governments. Accordingly, it had required the production of a copy of the Notification, if any, issued by the State Government re- classifying zones in the State. “The State Government shall explain the rationale in districts/ areas within the State being classified under different categories”, the Court had directed. When the matter came up for hearing on Thursday, the bench was informed that the Government of Uttarakhand has re-classified zones within the State; and, as a result, only Almora, Dehradun, Nainital, Pauri Garhwal, Udham Singh Nagar and Uttarakashi districts are classified as orange zones, and all other districts in the State, including Haridwar, are now classified as green zones. In these circumstances, though the petitioner stated that his grievance no longer survives since Haridwar is now classified as a green zone, he however contended that the validity of original classification may still require examination on the touchstone of Article 14 of the Constitution of India. The bench reflected that “it is not even the petitioner’s case that such classification of zones had resulted in an increase in Covid-19 cases in different districts of the State”. “His grievance is that, as there were no increase in the number of Covid-19 cases in Haridwar district, it ought to have been classified as a green zone, and was instead classified as a red zone. Factors, such as Haridwar being a pilgrimage centre where people may gather in large numbers if such restrictions were not imposed, may have also weighed with the authorities in classifying it as a red zone earlier”, explained the Court. Since the petitioner’s grievance, regarding such classification, did not subsist as on date, the bench saw “no reason to dwell on this aspect any further”. Dismissing the writ petition as infructuous, the bench however, clarified that it shall not disable the petitioner, if he is aggrieved by any unreasonable restriction imposed by the State Government later, to avail his judicial remedies.Click Here To Download Judgment[Read Judgment]Next Story
We analyzed the diversity of bacterial epibionts and trophic ecology of a new species of Kiwa yeti crab discovered at two hydrothermal vent fields (E2 and E9) on the East Scotia Ridge (ESR) in the Southern Ocean using a combination of 454 pyrosequencing, Sanger sequencing, and stable isotope analysis. The Kiwa epibiont communities were dominated by Epsilon- and Gammaproteobacteria. About 454 sequencing of the epibionts on 15 individual Kiwa specimen revealed large regional differences between the two hydrothermal vent fields: at E2, the bacterial community on the Kiwa ventral setae was dominated (up to 75%) by Gammaproteobacteria, whereas at E9 Epsilonproteobacteria dominated (up to 98%). Carbon stable isotope analysis of both Kiwa and the bacterial epibionts also showed distinct differences between E2 and E9 in mean and variability. Both stable isotope and sequence data suggest a dominance of different carbon fixation pathways of the epibiont communities at the two vent fields. At E2, epibionts were putatively fixing carbon via the Calvin-Benson-Bassham and reverse tricarboxylic acid cycle, while at E9 the reverse tricarboxylic acid cycle dominated. Co-varying epibiont diversity and isotope values at E2 and E9 also present further support for the hypothesis that epibionts serve as a food source for Kiwa.
