These 2 FTSE 100 share prices have fallen by over 50%. Here’s why I’d buy them with £1k today

first_imgSimply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. The FTSE 100’s market crash could mean that a number of its members now offer wide margins of safety. As such, there may be buying opportunities for long-term investors who are seeking to purchase stocks while they offer good value for money.With that in mind, here are two FTSE 100 shares that have each fallen by over 50% since the start of the year. Further declines in their prices cannot be ruled out, of course. But in the long run, they may deliver sound recoveries.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…BarclaysInvestor sentiment towards Barclays (LSE: BARC) has weakened considerably since the start of 2020. The bank’s shares are down by 50%, as investors have priced in the uncertain economic outlook facing the wider industry. Weak business confidence and low interest rates could combine to limit the earnings growth rate of banks with UK operations over the medium term.Barclays has also suspended dividends for 2020 alongside its sector peers. It was due to pay a rising dividend over the next couple of years. But its income appeal has been put on hold for the time being.Looking ahead, the bank’s shares could remain unpopular among investors in the short run. However, Barclays’ improved balance sheet may mean that it is in a relatively strong position to overcome the current economic uncertainty. And that is especially so compared to its smaller peers.The bank’s share price now trades at its lowest level since the darkest days of the financial crisis. So it appears to offer a wide margin of safety even though its recovery may not be smooth or swift,. I think Barclays could deliver an attractive return profile for long-term investors from its current share price.IAGAirlines such as IAG (LSE: IAG) have experienced an exceptionally difficult period in recent weeks. The industry has ground to a halt, and there is currently little sign that the sector will return to normal in the near term.IAG is taking steps to mitigate a loss of income in the short run. For example, it has suspended dividend payments and recently announced that it is accessing the government’s jobs support scheme. It has also sought to reduce costs. That means it is currently not recruiting for new staff members and it is aiming to reduce the working hours of some of its staff.Clearly, IAG’s outlook is highly uncertain at the present time. However, it has a substantial amount of cash and a solid balance sheet too. This should help it to survive an unprecedented challenge for the airline sector.Trading at a seven-year low, its shares appear to offer good value for money given its market position. Although they could move lower in the short term depending on the prospects for the wider industry, they could represent a buying opportunity for long-term investors.

Why I think these are three of the best shares to buy for 2021

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Enter Your Email Address 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. As we head into the final weeks of 2020, I’ve been turning my thoughts to the year ahead. I think the best shares to buy for 2021 will tick two boxes.First, they’ll benefit from a return to normal. Second, they’ll be defensive and flexible enough to cope if things don’t return to normal straight away — or if we face a tough recession.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…For this piece, I’ve picked three UK shares I’d happily buy today and hold through the coming year.CEO’s £500k share buyMy first choice is FTSE 100 consumer goods group Reckitt Benckiser (LSE: RB). Reckitt’s shift to hygiene and health-related products has paid off this year. Like-for-like sales rose by 12% during the first nine months of the year, thanks to soaring demand for disinfectant brands Dettol and Lysol.However, it’s not all been plain sailing. Sales of infant formula milk have been hit by restrictions on unofficial imports into China, while lockdown meant Durex sales have also suffered.Reckitt’s share price has fallen by 20% in recent months, down from the £80 peak seen in July. The market appears to be taking a more cautious view, perhaps because the group still needs to prove it can return to sustainable growth.Interestingly, Reckitt’s two top directors have been taking advantage of the share price fall to buy stock. CEO Laxman Narasimhan recently spent over £500,000 buying the firm’s shares. Chairman Christopher Sinclair has also been buying, with a £248,000 purchase on 20 November.Better than supermarkets?Shares in meat producer Cranswick (LSE: CWK) have risen by nearly 90% over the last five years. That’s a much better performance than any of the big supermarkets who buy meat from Cranswick.One reason for this might be that its large and focused operations are more profitable than supermarkets. The company generated an operating profit of 6.2% last year. Tesco managed just 3.9%.Cranswick has also delivered reliable growth for many years. Sales have risen by 80% since 2015, while profits have doubled. The big supermarkets can’t manage this kind of growth.Of course, Cranswick’s success isn’t a secret. The shares currently trade on about 20 times forecast earnings, with an expected dividend yield of just 1.9%. Although that may not be cheap, I think this is a good business. I’d be happy to buy shares for my long-term portfolio at this level.A bargain buy?Cranswick’s high valuation reflects its track record of growth. I see this as a sign of what could be possible for Tate & Lyle (LSE: TATE). This group produces sweeteners and specialist ingredients for food producers.Tate’s dividend hasn’t been cut for more than 20 years and its financial position looks strong to me. The only problem I can see with the business is that growth has been slow for a number of years. This is reflected in the stock’s modest valuation on 12 times forecast earnings, with a 4.6% yield.I don’t think this situation will remain unchanged forever. At some point, I believe the business will find a way to generate new growth. If it does, then I’d expect Tate’s share price to rise significantly from current levels.I see Tate & Lyle shares as a potential win-win for my portfolio, providing attractive income and interesting growth potential.

U.S. Supreme Court refuses to hear Falls Church Anglican case

first_imgU.S. Supreme Court refuses to hear Falls Church Anglican case Action leaves standing state ruling that Episcopal Church, diocese own property Featured Events Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Rector Collierville, TN Submit an Event Listing March 10, 2014 at 5:19 pm Thank goodness that this chapter is over and that Episcopalians in a Virginia can get on with spreading the good news. It boggles the mind that a group of people can go off and create a new denomination (that is by definition NOT Anglican) based on hatred and exclusion –and at the same time expect that they can keep the property that belongs to the Church from which they’ve chosen to depart. It doesn’t seem like rocket science, trying to figure this one out from a legal point of view. I’m glad the Supreme Court agrees. THE REVD CANON KALE FRANCIS KING Tssf says: Toby McPerson says: Youth Minister Lorton, VA AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Curate Diocese of Nebraska Robert R. Hansel says: Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI walter combs says: Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR March 13, 2014 at 1:08 pm Anthony — I am definitely with your notion about not having to agree about non-essentials. In essentials, unity, and in non-essentials, tolerance. Got it. Believe it. That’s not the concern for many people though. Their issue is what is being called negotiable and the ongoing exacting of patience for the private and divisive revelations of notable leaders. Examples: What do you make of a bishop who becomes the president of the regional Planned Parenthood organization and raises his hand to bless the site of an abortion clinic—and tells people that we can all just worship together and not look very closely at such things? Or other bishops who unilaterally changed the definition and practice of marriage in the name of some prophetic insight — well ahead of canonical change which has yet to happen — and then want to worship together and not look closely at such things? …and on – and on…. The exacting of good will and patience for such behavior has become exhausting. March 13, 2014 at 11:54 pm I agree with most if not all of what Doug Despers has written regarding this court case. However I feel the need to respond to some of the comments of Anthony Christiansen. The people who chose to leave TEC did so because they could no longer stay in a denomination that totally went against their interpretation of scripture and Christianity in general. The new church they formed Anthony dismisses as being “based on hatred and exclusion”. Really? Who are you to stand in judgement of these people Anthony? Who appointed you to decide whether they are “true” Anglicans? One of the reasons so many conservative Episcopalians have chosen to leave is because of the self-righteous and polarizing attitudes of people like you! I find it astounding that you can say with a straight face that TEC has embraced the middle way regarding the faith. Let me say that I love the Episcopal church. I love the sacraments, I love the Book of Common Prayer, I love the Anglican form of worship. But let’s be frank – this church is dominated by those with progressive leanings. Completely. Totally. TEC hasn’t embraced the “middle way” in decades. So while all my Episcopal brothers and sisters are celebrating and high-fiving each other over the ultimate outcome of this case, I hope you will pause long enough to say a prayer for those on the losing side and at least wish them well in their spiritual journey. The Rev. Fred Fenton says: Submit a Press Release Ryan Oliver says: Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Featured Jobs & Calls Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ March 10, 2014 at 8:40 pm This is the result we were hoping for. Sad that it took so long, but what a relief the historic church property will remain in the Episcopal Church. I predict the growth of the congregation to its former strength and with a new sense of mission. How grateful we are for every Episcopalian who remained loyal to our Church. Rector Belleville, IL By Mary Frances SchjonbergPosted Mar 10, 2014 Sharon Caulfield says: Doug Desper says: March 12, 2014 at 9:55 pm Doug, it seems to me to me that part of embracing the via media of Anglicanism involves embracing an understanding and conviction that various parties need not agree in order to live and worship together under the same tent. Such comprehensiveness and inclusivity of difference have been the sine qua nons of Anglicanism from her beginnings. The ancient maxim, “in essentials, unity; in doubtful matters, liberty; in all things, charity,” variously attributed, is a helpful one and is frequently invoked as describing the catholic faith as it should be lived. Many of us believe that TEC has embraced the middle way and the catholic faith more fully as it has attempted to explore and express a still developing tradition and set of doctrines. You may not believe that and that is perfectly fine, but many faithful Episcopalians are of the opinion that it has been those who have chosen to leave that have abandoned the middle way that characterizes our Anglican tradition. Bernard Louis says: Anthony Christiansen says: July 2, 2014 at 9:03 am Viva to the Episcopal Church. Bernard Louis says: Rector Bath, NC Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Rector Knoxville, TN March 22, 2014 at 2:31 pm You nailed it with ‘we all lost’. This is hardly a victory. We may have the building and property but hardly have the people to occupy it. Will it just end up sold off and the money used to sue others? Looks like Diocese of Fort Worth is going to prevail against us. The Diocese of South Carolina will probably also go in the ‘win’ column of those who have left us. We need to stop these law suits. So many better ways could the money spent on litigation be used. Terry Francis says: March 11, 2014 at 9:47 am SILLY. The two situations are not even remotely parallel. Anthony Christiansen says: Director of Music Morristown, NJ John Neir says: Rector Pittsburgh, PA Bernard Louis says: Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC March 10, 2014 at 7:03 pm Congratulations to the many fine lawyers on behalf of The Episcopal Church who saw this unfortunate chapter to the end. March 17, 2014 at 8:40 pm Also, the fact that TEC has members who call commitment to two thousand years of Catholic faith “hatred and exclusion” only demonstrates how far the TEC has fallen. The absurdity is plain. TEC is has become heretical, training up polarizing adherents committed to exclusivism, and not the via media. Tags Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Anthony Christiansen says: March 12, 2014 at 1:01 pm Well, Maybe, Doug. At the same time there are dioceses, untouched by the “let’s secede” syndrome” that continue to put one foot in front of the other, continue to minister beyond their own, continue to grow. West of the Mississippi there are more than one can count. It helps to be aware of those parts of the church well beyond our immediate vision. Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL center_img Rector Tampa, FL [Episcopal News Service] More than seven years after a majority of clergy and members of several Diocese of Virginia congregations declared they had left the Episcopal Church and the question of ownership of the property involved began to be litigated, the U.S. Supreme Court refused on March 10 to hear the appeal of the last congregation still at odds with the Episcopal Church and the diocese.The court gave no reason for deciding not to review a 2013 ruling by the Virginia Supreme Court reaffirming an earlier circuit court ruling that returned The Falls Church property to loyal Episcopalians to use for the mission of the Diocese of Virginia and the Episcopal Church. The court’s decision was included in its March 10 order list and was one of 121 requests for review that it refused.All that remains in the case is for the Diocese of Virginia to request an order from the Fairfax Circuit Court releasing to the diocese more than $2.6 million that was in the Falls Church’s bank accounts at the time of the split and that the court has been holding in escrow during the progression of the case.“We are most gratified by the Supreme Court’s ruling,” said Diocese of Virginia Bishop Shannon S. Johnston in a press release. “We look forward to the possibilities that the months ahead will bring, and continue to keep those affected by the litigation in our prayers.”In an accompanying letter to the diocese, Johnston called March 10 “an important day for our diocese” because of the ruling.We finally can say, with great thankfulness, that the Diocese of Virginia no longer is involved in property litigation …[and] … The Falls Church Episcopal is free to continue to worship and grow in its home church buildings.”“Although today marks an official and much anticipated end to the litigation, it also marks a beginning,” the bishop said. “We will now be able to focus fully our attentions on the many truly exciting ministries all over our diocese. I pray that those in the [Convocation of Anglicans in North American] congregations will join us in turning this fresh page.”The Rev. John Ohmer, rector of The Falls Church Episcopal, said in the diocesan release that “although it breaks my heart to think of where all that money and energy could have gone, today’s news is uplifting for our congregation.”“My hope and prayer is that all sides can now continue to grow their communities of worship, ministries and outreach in our church homes,” he said.The Falls Church Anglican congregation on Oct. 9, 2013 asked the country’s highest court to review the Virginia Supreme Court’s decision. A chronology of the court filings, including those from other interested parties, which followed from that request is here.The Falls Church was one of 11 congregations in the diocese in which a majority of members voted to disaffiliate from the diocese and the Episcopal Church. Over the years, all but The Falls Church Anglican had settled their property conflicts with the diocese and the church after judicial decisions in favor of the diocese and the church.After a Fairfax County Circuit Court Jjudge ordered The Falls Church Anglican in March 2012 to return the parish property to the diocese, the Anglicans only agreed to allow the Episcopalians to return to the parish building to celebrate Easter (April 8, 2012). However, the Anglican congregation soon thereafter appealed to the state Supreme Court and in the meantime asked the Circuit Court to prevent the Episcopalians from returning again until the high court ruled. The Circuit Court refused and the Falls Church Episcopalians returned to their property on May 15, 2012.The Virginia Supreme Court on April 18, 2013 affirmed the circuit court ruling returning the Falls Church property to the Episcopalians. The Falls Church Anglican asked the state Supreme Court to reconsider, despite earlier comments by the Rev. John Yates, The Falls Church Anglican’s rector, on April 28 that the Supreme Court’s “overwhelming rejection of our arguments … reduces our legal options drastically.”Then in June 2013, the state’s high court refused to reconsider its ruling and Falls Church Anglican later decided to ask the U.S. Supreme Court to review the state court’s actions.The leaders of the Anglican congregation have not yet commented on the high court’s decision, but in a Feb. 24 update to the members Junior Warden Kristen Short acknowledged that the request for review was “against the odds.” The decision to go to the U.S. Supreme Court, she said, was part of what she called the congregation’s ministry of “speaking boldly on behalf of believing individuals and faithful congregations across the country who are under attack.”“We have tried to discern God’s will at every juncture and believe we are acting out of obedience to Him,” she wrote. “While we may not relish the ‘battle’ we’re in, we did not sense that the Lord was giving us permission to withdraw.”— The Rev.

March 11, 2014 at 9:20 am Before all of this destructive engagement I recall how the Falls Church (before the split/conservative departure) was hailed as a vital example of church growth and was bragged about for their comprehensive ministry. Now, I suppose, it helps to just caricature the conservatives as reactionary, narrow, unjust, and any number of qualities that make the remaining Episcopalians more comfortable. But, a failure of “the middle way” has occurred that caricatures and dismissive summaries cannot cover over. How can we be led to believe that so many hundreds and thousands — and nowadays TENS of thousands – of fellow Episcopalians are simply leaving because they listen to a few loud voices and then split off? I don’t think so. I believe that there is a failure of leadership in that the middle way has fallen definitively far left of center and that a new progressive orthodoxy demands strict adherence; much to the damage of the consciences of members; whether they be at Falls Church, South Carolina, New York, Texas, or elsewhere. The liberal progressive orthodoxy often claims to demand respect for canons – such as in property – and yet what of the convenient flouting of other canons to teach our current standard of marriage? The Executive Council joining our Church as a member of the organization advocating abortion rights? The Executive Board’s total failure to take seriously funding and programming for evangelism, as in ignoring the 20/20 mandate from General Convention? Just last year – during Holy Week – Bishop Spong delivered his typical “I doubt that” message about the cross and Christianity in the very diocese that now celebrates the loss of the majority of the membership of the Falls Church. Bishop Spong has never been censured, and he continues to be celebrated and invited to promote a faith rejected by the councils of the Church. I could go on, but to no purpose. The proof is in the pews. This Sunday we cannot muster 1/2 of our membership to support, churches are closing, cathedrals are shuttering, thousands have left. This “victory” is about stuff–but we still have a sentinel event occuring in this denomination that few recognize or have the courage to solve. March 10, 2014 at 4:46 pm I pray that this marks the halt to those who wish to leave the Episcopal Church from filing what are turning out to be irresponsible and expensive lawsuits – who are we leaving behind in our desire to bring Christ and service to the people in this nation and around the world when time after time litigation doomed to fail is destroying resources and ministries?Did not Christ say “And why do you not judge for yourselves what is right? Thus, when you go with your accuser before a magistrate, on the way make an effort to settle the case,* or you may be dragged before the judge, and the judge hand you over to the officer, and the officer throw you in prison. I tell you, you will never get out until you have paid the very last penny.’Some of our best and most capable servants in Christ are paying the very last penny rather than turning to God to find a path so that each party can end these destructive processes and get on with serving the community and the world. Please take our Lord’s words to heart, and serve others, rather than pay that very last penny to the system that is not designed to resolved these issues. March 13, 2014 at 3:43 pm We set up this zero-sum game, where there’s supposed to be winners and losers. But, folks, we all lost.

Those who have broken communion with TEC, The Anglican Church of Canada, etc. are not in communion with Canterbury. Presbyterians and Methodists are also break-offs from the Anglican Communion and I have the utmost respect for many of my Presbyterian and Methodist friends –but that doesn’t mean I have to call them Anglicans. I have no animosity toward those who have left, although I do believe that many of them have left for reasons having to do with hatred and exclusion. I’ve been watching this play out for many years and have had many people tell me their reasons for leaving –and can call those reasons nothing but hatred and exclusion. Do I wish them well? Do I hope some of them decide to return some day? Do I forgive the mistakes that have been made on both sides? I do. And I do pray for those who’ve left. But none of this means that I’m not entitled to have an opinion about all that’s occurred. March 17, 2014 at 8:35 pm Being Anglican does not mean “in communion with Canterbury”. ACNA is in communion with over 70% of the worldwide Anglican communion, many of whom themselves censure and condemn the actions of the TEC and ACC. The shift of centrality in Anglican authority is clearly moving toward GAFCON. Lambeth will remain relevant only inasmuch as Lambeth retains its commitment to the historic Catholic faith. If Canterbury goes the way of TEC and ACC, it will no longer be even a token of authority in the communion. Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET March 12, 2014 at 9:48 am Thank you Doug. March 17, 2014 at 8:31 pm Well said, Doug. This division is not over “doubtful matters.” It is over central claims of the historic Christian faith that have been rejected and updated without any adherence to canonical procedure. The via media practiced by progressive Episcopalians is not inclusive, it is far from it. Conservatives are not at all welcome, and are usually pushed to the side or censured. Those who believe otherwise are likely either not exposed to it, or simply persist in disbelief, or are themselves accomplices.

Alarm over disappearance of three Romanian journalists

first_img Reporters Without Borders today said it was “extremely concerned” about the disappearance and probable abduction of three Romanian journalists yesterday in a suburb of Baghdad. “We are therefore losing no time in calling on the Romanian, European, US and Iraqi authorities to do everything possible to find these journalists quickly.” News RSF’s 2020 Round-up: 50 journalists killed, two-thirds in countries “at peace” Organisation News Receive email alerts December 16, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders today said it was “extremely concerned” about the disappearance and probable abduction of three Romanian journalists yesterday in a suburb of Baghdad.”Reports of disappearances or kidnapping in Iraq must be taken very seriously,” the press freedom organization said. “Experience shows that all journalists, whatever their nationality, can be targeted in this manner. When it happens, support and action is vital in the first few days. We are therefore losing no time in calling on the Romanian, European, US and Iraqi authorities to do everything possible to find these journalists quickly.”Reporters Without Borders said at least 17 journalists have been kidnapped in Iraq since the start of the war in March 2003. Florence Aubenas of the French daily newspaper Libération and her Iraqi guide and interpreter, Hussein Hanoun, have been detained for the past 83 days.Reporter Marie-Jeanne Ion and cameraman Sorin Dumitru Miscoci of the Romanian television station Prima TV and Eduard Ovidiu Ohanesian of the privately-owned daily Romania Libera disappeared yesterday, five days after arriving in Iraq. Their Iraqi guide, a businessman who normally works in Romania, is also missing.Prima TV said they received a call from Ion at the moment that she and her colleagues were being kidnapped. They said they thought “she was trying to explain to the kidnappers that it would be useless to do this as they were just Romanian journalists who did not have money for any ransom.”The conversation between the TV crew and the militants was conducted partly in English and partly in Arabic, Prima TV said in a statement. “Marie-Jeanne also tried to let us know in Romanian that they had been kidnapped and that we should immediately alert the Romanian embassy in Baghdad. We also managed to understand that they were in a car heading towards Al Hamiryah.”The independent news agency Mediafax reported that, a few minutes after this call, Ion sent a telephone text message that said: “We have been kidnapped. It is not a joke. Help us.”Romanian foreign minister Mihai-Razvan Ungureanu said he was analysing the reports about the three journalists’ “possible disappearance” in Iraq. Prime Minister Calin Popescu Tariceanu said “the three journalists have been reported missing in an area known more for criminal activity than kidnappings.” He did not specify what area he was referring to.A crisis unit was immediately formed in Romania by representatives of the president’s office, foreign ministry and secret services. No new developments were immediately expected and no ransom demand has so far been received by the authorities.The apparent kidnapping took place shortly after the three journalists met with members of the Romanian embassy. They had interviewed Iraqi interim Prime Minister Ayad Allawi and were due to interview President Ghazi al-Yawar. The day before, on 27 March, Romanian President Traian Basescu had visited the Romanian troops who are part of the multi-national coalition. He had announced that Romania did not plan to reduce its troops and would continue to participate in the reconstruction and stabilization of Iraq.Referring to the journalists’ disappearance on his return to Romanian, Basescu said, “all state structures are on alert and are determined to solve this problem.” He also said the secret services of allied countries had been informed. to go further Help by sharing this information Three jailed reporters charged with “undermining national security” March 29, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Alarm over disappearance of three Romanian journalists News IraqMiddle East – North Africa December 28, 2020 Find out more News RSF_en Follow the news on Iraq Iraq : Wave of arrests of journalists covering protests in Iraqi Kurdistan IraqMiddle East – North Africa February 15, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

We need to be circumspect with half truths rather than blasé about people’s feelings and pain in peddling speculation.”He stated that those posting on social media sites need to ask themselves if what they are posting is true, and to think about what is driving them to post “something that is unfounded or not yet established”.Addressing the widower of the late Mrs Tracey, Fr O’Riordan concluded: “I want you and all the family to let the trace of the rumours about Yvonne float down the Shannon and let them be washed out to sea. Whatever the specific cause of Yvonne’s death, it was accidental and thank God her death was painless and God took her to himself quickly.”center_img Advertisement #SaucySoul: Room 58 – ‘Hate To See You Leave’ Celebrating a ground breaking year in music from Limerick Previous articleLimerick has highest rate of sexual offencesNext articleARI to sell Aerofirst duty free stake John Keoghhttp://www.limerickpost.ie WhatsApp Twitter Public asked to celebrate frontline workers with #MyHeroes campaign Watch the streamed gig for Fergal Nash album launch last_img read more

Another reported package explosion in Austin injures 1, officials say

first_imgABC News(AUSTIN, Texas) — Yet another reported package explosion injured one in Austin, Texas, Tuesday evening, as law enforcement hunts for a serial bomber that authorities have said is connected to at least six devices.The explosion occurred at a Goodwill store on Brodie Lane, the Austin Fire Department said. Police and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are on the scene, and fire crews are evacuating the building.An unexploded package bomb was discovered Tuesday at the FedEx facility in Austin, Texas, two sources briefed on the investigation told ABC News.The string of explosions in Austin, which left two dead and injured others, has the city on edge and sparked hundreds of law enforcement to descend on the area. Earlier on Tuesday, a package detonated at a FedEx facility near San Antonio, injuring one.The Houston branch of the confirmed Tuesday evening all six bombs — five package bombs and one involving a tripwire — were related.The intact package was discovered by FedEx workers, the company said in a statement, and could yield major clues in the hunt for the serial bomber terrorizing Austin.“We have also confirmed that the individual responsible [for Tuesday’s package bomb] also shipped a second package that has now been secured and turned over to law enforcement,” FedEx said in its statement but did not reveal which of its facilities the package was discovered in.The two sources confirmed to ABC News the undetonated package was discovered at an Austin facility.“We have provided law enforcement responsible for this investigation extensive evidence related to these packages and the individual that shipped them collected from our advanced technology security systems,” FedEx said. “The safety and security measures in place across the FedEx networks are designed to protect the safety of our people, customers and communities, and to assist law enforcement as appropriate.”The FBI has discovered a link between packages involved in the Austin bombings and a mail delivery office at a strip mall in the neighboring city of Sunset Valley. Police cordoned off the area and were combing through the office Tuesday.In his first public comments on the Texas bombings, which started March 2, President Donald Trump said the federal government is doing everything it can think of to catch the culprits.“These are sick people and we need to find them immediately,” Trump told reporters at the White House.Tuesday’s explosion in the San Antonio suburb of Schertz occurred about 12:45 a.m. at a FedEx facility. About 65 miles away, two men were injured Sunday night in the fourth bombing in 17 days to rock the Texas capital.Austin Police Chief Brian Manley told the Austin City Council this morning that the package that exploded in Schertz originated at a facility in Austin that has been closed.“A package had been traveling along an automated conveyor when it exploded,” Schertz Police Chief Michael Hanson said at a news conference outside the Schertz FexEx facility this morning.Hanson said the injured worker complained of “ringing in her ears,” was treated at the scene and released.Earlier Tuesday, police told ABC San Antonio affiliate KSAT-TV that the medium-sized box that exploded contained nails and metal shrapnel.Jim McClusky, a spokesman for FedEx, confirmed in a statement to ABC News that “a single package exploded” and that one worker was treated for minor injuries.There were 75 people in the building at the time of the explosion, authorities said.“This is a fluid investigation and we want the general public to know their safety is our No. 1 priority,” said Frank Ortega, ATF acting assistant special agent in charge.He said the ATF’s National Response Team and bomb-sniffing dogs were searching the facility for other possible explosives.Neither Ortega or FBI assistant special agent James Smith, who both spoke at the news conference, would say if investigators definitively believe the explosion is connected to the Austin bombings.Manley said investigators from his department, the FBI and the ATF were working to determine whether the explosive is the work of a serial bomber or bombers who have terrorized Austin since the beginning of the month.“We’ve seen an evolution in the type of devices, the one in Schertz involves a delivery service. What we are seeing here is unprecedented,” Manley told the city council.He cautioned residents to pay close attention to any suspicious device whether it be a package, a bag, a backpack “or anything that looks out of place” and advised residents to immediately call 911 and stay clear of the suspicious items.Manley said Monday at a news conference on the Austin explosions, “Clearly we are dealing with a serial bomber.”Austin residents have been on edge for a month after the series of bombings. The first three bombings were packages, apparently hand-delivered and left on porches of homes before exploding when picked up by residents, police said.The fourth explosion took place Sunday night. Two men, ages 22 and 23, were injured in that blast, which was caused by a device using a tripwire on a sidewalk in the Travis Country neighborhood of Austin.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

North-South asymmetries in Earth’s magnetic field

first_imgThe solar-wind magnetosphere interaction primarily occurs at altitudes where the dipole component of Earth’s magnetic field is dominating. The disturbances that are created in this interaction propagate along magnetic field lines and interact with the ionosphere–thermosphere system. At ionospheric altitudes, the Earth’s field deviates significantly from a dipole. North–South asymmetries in the magnetic field imply that the magnetosphere–ionosphere–thermosphere (M–I–T) coupling is different in the two hemispheres. In this paper we review the primary differences in the magnetic field at polar latitudes, and the consequences that these have for the M–I–T coupling. We focus on two interhemispheric differences which are thought to have the strongest effects: 1) A difference in the offset between magnetic and geographic poles in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres, and 2) differences in the magnetic field strength at magnetically conjugate regions. These asymmetries lead to differences in plasma convection, neutral winds, total electron content, ion outflow, ionospheric currents and auroral precipitation.last_img read more
