Speaking of cheap shares, I found another stock that looks like its on the verge of exploding this year. Here is a: Covid-19 continues to disrupt many industries, especially mining. Now, mining stocks aren’t exactly the most glamourous businesses out there, but they do provide an essential service. And there’s one UK share that has exploded during this pandemic, with its share price increasing by over 200% since March 2020, even though it remain cheap.What is causing this enormous growth? And should I add the stock to my Stocks and Shares ISA? Let’s take a look.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…An explosive UK shareFerrexpo (LSE:FXPO) is a supplier of high-quality iron ore pellets for the global steel industry. The UK share is currently the third-largest supplier of blast furnace pellets worldwide. But what makes it so unique compared to other iron mining stocks?There are two aspects of the business that make it stand out to me. Firstly it operates nine mines along a single ore body. This is quite significant as it practically eliminates most of the site discovery expenses mining companies typically have to deal with.Secondly, the extracted metal is magnetite ore rather than the more common hematite ore. Without going too deep into the realm of chemistry, turning magnetite into iron pellets is an exothermic reaction. Meaning the process releases heat. Therefore, the energy requirement of this reaction is lowered, ultimately reducing the production cost.Combined, this grants Ferrexpo significant cost-saving advantages over its competitors that lead to higher margins. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Enter Your Email Addresscenter_img Zaven Boyrazian | Friday, 5th March, 2021 | More on: FXPO The price of iron ore is surgingChina recently began issuing a stimulus package to reboot its economy. And since the steel industry is a large driving force of that economy, the demand for iron pellets has skyrocketed. Yet the supply continues to be restricted. And when demand outweighs supply, prices begin to rise.The price of iron ore is now at the highest point in almost a decade. Needless to say, this is fantastic for Ferrexpo which, despite disruptions from Covid-19, appears to be at full operating capacity. In fact, total pellet production for this UK share actually increased by 7% in 2020. That’s quite impressive, in my opinion, but there are always risks to consider.Nothing lasts foreverJust as quickly as iron ore prices go up, they can come back down. As the world begins to return to normality, the supply restrictions on iron and other metals will start to ease. If demand starts to fall, the prices of iron ore will fall in a similar fashion.After all, the market determines metal prices, not the company. Having virtually no pricing power is a weakness all mining stocks share. And it can have a profound impact on the business. Just take a look at what happened between 2011 and 2016. Iron ore prices plummeted from $188/tonne to $41/tonne, and the Ferrexpo share price dropped by nearly 95% alongside it.A UK share to buy today?Iron ore prices will undoubtedly stop climbing eventually. However, the world appears to be in the middle of a technological shift. Self-driving cars, electric batteries, renewable energy all of these technologies require a lot of precious metals — including iron – to manufacture.So, while supply may increase, I believe demand will remain high for many years to come. And with a P/E ratio of 7, Ferrexpo is one cheap UK share I’d consider adding to my portfolio.

The condominium and hotel have been oriented in order to maintain views of the sea from the depths of the site and from the village. The concept separates the areas into low density (ten stories on beach-front) and high density (low-rise to the rear of the site) presenting the opportunity to create different senses of “place” within the same area. All three projects are tied together along a spine running from north to south acting as a viewing corridor and public access walkway to the beachfront.Save this picture!© Roland Halbe Jesolo Lido Condominium is linked to the Village by a common architectural language and an open entrance plaza, creating a dialogue between the two projects. The ground floors consist of six apartments with private gardens, a spa area and a concierge. The top level of the building is dedicated to five distinct duplex penthouse units, each with its own outdoor pool, and the overall gross area above ground for the building’s ten stories is 7400 square meters. The volume is simple and clean and creates a strong symbolic element for the Jesolo Lido area and the region. Save this picture!© Roland Halbe Richard Meier comments “We first began working in Jesolo, Italy, while designing the Jesolo Lido Village ten years ago, and we have worked together with our client to design a beachfront destination on the Adriatic coast. The Condominium is a building that contributes to the life of the master plan and takes advantage of the site and the local climate. Every unit has been carefully designed taking in consideration the public areas, the beach and natural light. Save this picture!© Roland Halbe As in the Village, this project is a composition of volumes and voids, with a brise-soleil system that runs continuously along the East and West elevations.

Lebanon : Violence against reporters becoming more frequent in Lebanon

February 4, 2021 Find out more Forum on Information and Democracy 250 recommendations on how to stop “infodemics” Organisation to go further November 11, 2020 Find out more LebanonMiddle East – North Africa Condemning abusesProtecting journalists October 8, 2020 Find out more Receive email alerts News Newscenter_img Twitter @TheLebanonDream 08/01/2021 Three Lebanese women journalists hounded on social media January 14, 2021 – Updated on January 15, 2021 Lebanon : Violence against reporters becoming more frequent in Lebanon Follow the news on Lebanon News The latest victims include Yahya Habchiti, a reporter for the Lebanese TV channel LBCI in the northern city of Tripoli, who was attacked by a group of young men on 7 January while covering a police raid on a crowded café to enforce a strict coronavirus lockdown that took effect that day. Several of the youths grabbed his camera and gave him a severe beating.Journalists staged a sit-in outside the lawcourts in Tripoli the next day in protest against the violence. “If the justice system can prosecute journalists for defamation, it can also protect them when they are the victims of violence while just trying to report the facts as they really are,” journalist Ghassan Rifi told the demonstrators.Sawt Beirut International reporter Rabih Shantaf and photographer Mahmoud Al-Sayed had to be hospitalized after being insulted and beaten by around 30 Hezbollah supporters in Zokak El-Blat, a southwestern suburb of Beirut, on 24 November. Shantaf said they went to cover a big fire in an apartment building when a group of Hezbollah supporters who happened to be there began to attack them, claiming that Sawt Beirut International (which is known for being critical of religious parties) had defamed Hezbollah leaders. Soldiers eventually intervened and took them to a hospital.Around 15 journalists were injured by police and soldiers while covering anti-government demonstrations in August that were triggered by the massive explosion in Beirut’s port on 4 August. Alexandre Khachachou, a reporter for the daily newspaper Al-Nahar, was badly beaten by supporters of Amal, a party allied with the government that is hostile to the media because it widely accused of being corrupt.Two other journalists, Layal Saad and Raneen Bou Khzam, were threatened and attacked by demonstrators while covering anti-government protests last June. The start of the hostility towards the media dates back to the beginning of a wave of protests in October 2019, when journalists suddenly found themselves being surrounded, or interrupted while reporting live from the street or even having their microphones snatched. Since then, the possibility of being obstructed in this way has made work very difficult for reporters in the field.“The increasing frequency of attacks against journalists in Lebanon, fuelled by the growing political tension, is extremely disturbing,” said Sabrina Bennoui, the head of RSF’s Middle East desk. “The authorities cannot allow the media to continue to become an easy target for demonstrators or party activists, who prevent them from doing their job. Protective measures must be studied and implemented without delay.”Lebanon is ranked 102nd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index.

Severe weather threat moves into Southeast

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — A major storm in the central U.S. is bringing severe weather, flash flooding and heavy snow to the eastern half of the nation. This same major storm was responsible for setting off a tornado outbreak in Illinois on Saturday evening.There were 22 reported tornadoes on Saturday, all in central Illinois, near Springfield. On the colder side of the storm, heavy snow continues to fall in parts of the upper Plains and Midwest. Mullen, Nebraska, has received 14 inches of snow; Norris, South Dakota, has 8.5 inches; and Hudson, Wisconsin, has seen 5.6 inches.On the warmer side of the storm, parts of the south have seen over half a foot of rain, including 9.71 inches in Pace, Florida, and 6.57 inches in Lillian, Alabama.The storm is slowly moving through the central U.S. and will gradually slide east on Sunday. Severe weather and flash flooding remain likely in the Southeast, while heavy snow will be slow to move east across parts of the Midwest. Meanwhile, an icy mix is possible ahead of the storm in parts of the Northeast on Sunday morning.A new tornado watch was issued for parts of southern Georgia and Alabama until 11 a.m. Sunday morning. Additionally, a flash flood watch has been issued for parts of this region, as well as a large part of the Florida Panhandle, due to heavy rainfall rates up to 2 or 3 inches per hour. This could cause flash flooding Sunday morning, and some flash flood warnings have already been issued in parts of this region.The radar Sunday morning is showing numerous thunderstorms moving into the region, with some of the storms showing some weak rotation. This line of storms will slowly slide eastward and extend into the rest of the Southeast from Georgia to North Carolina. A slight risk for severe weather exists in the Southeast, with damaging winds and brief tornadoes possible.Meanwhile, heavy rain has moved into the major I-95 cities in the Northeast. Away from the coast, temperatures are near freezing, especially in some of the higher elevations of New York, Massachusetts, Vermont and New Hampshire. As a result, a mix of freezing rain, sleet and snow will fall at times through the early morning hours. This could create slick conditions in parts of the interior Northeast. The wintry weather threat will end during the day on Sunday as temperatures begin to warm up.On the back side of this storm, colder air is supporting snowfall through the remainder of Sunday from Nebraska to Michigan. However, the bulk of the snow has ended, with the heaviest accumulations to come expected in parts of Wisconsin and Michigan.The bulk of this storm will wind down by Sunday night. However, a glimpse ahead does show another strong storm headed for the West Coast by midweek, which likely will become another major storm to track for parts of the central and eastern U.S. in the upcoming week.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Grandfather gets probation for granddaughter’s 2019 cruise ship death

first_imgFamily Photo via Atty Michael WinklemanBy IVAN PEREIRA and DOUGLAS LANTZ, ABC News(NEW YORK) — The Indiana man who pleaded guilty to negligent homicide after his young granddaughter fell from an 11th-story window of a cruise ship docked in Puerto Rico was sentenced Monday to three years probation.Salvatore “Sam” Anello, of Valparaiso, Indiana, was holding 18-month-old Chloe Wiegand up to the window of a Royal Caribbean cruise ship during a July 2019 trip when she slipped from his grasp and fell about 150 feet to her death, investigators said.Anello has contended that he did not know that the window was open, but made a deal in October with prosecutors and pleaded guilty to negligent homicide.“I always thought this was a wall of glass. There was no indication to me that some of the glass panels in this wall of glass could even open,” Anello said in a statement Monday.He will serve out his probation in Indiana, according to his attorneys.Anello and Chloe’s family have blamed Royal Caribbean for the child’s death and have repeatedly said the company and its crews didn’t do enough to secure the boat. The Wiegand family has filed a lawsuit against Royal Caribbean and accused the company of negligence.“Responsible corporations follow simple steps that save children’s lives, such as limiting a window opening to no more than 4 inches. Herein, Royal Caribbean did nothing to protect Chloe from this known danger,” Michael Winkleman, an attorney for the Wiegand family said in a statement.In a statement sent to ABC News, a spokesperson for Royal Caribbean said, “This was a tragic incident, and our hearts go out to the family. Out of respect for the family’s privacy during this very sad time, we have no further comment.”The civil case is tentatively scheduled to begin on April 26, according to Winkleman.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

How to tame the top talent

first_img Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. How to tame the top talentOn 17 Jun 2003 in Personnel Today Effectivetalent management systems help grab the lion’s share of top performers. JohnCharlton reports Successful organisations and teams will always include top performers intheir ranks. Team sports are an obvious example of this tenet. But how canorganisations be sure that they’re attracting, recruiting, nurturing anddeveloping the best performers? The answer is to develop and apply effective talent management systems.These can be complex and they must be flexible. Issues such as demographicchanges, short product life cycles, flatter organisational structures and morecustomer-centric approaches demand more of organisations and those who managethem. Thus the need for organisations to develop their ‘A’ types, which everycompany wants. The landmark 1997 McKinsey & Company study identified the “war fortalent” as a strategic business challenge and a key driver of corporateand organisational performance. This brought talent management to the forefrontof innovative and effective HR thinking and prompted its systematic applicationin some organisations. But what should talent management comprise? Build a brand and mind your As, Bs and Cs Branding is core to talent management. Organisations should have brands thatencapsulate people, processes, premises and supply chains as well as products.The brand should be built on common corporate beliefs based on shared vision,goals, aspirations, behaviour and practice. It should help project theself-esteem, confidence and pride that staff have in their organisation. This has a positive impact on how they deal with issues and encouragesinnovative and creative responses to challenges. The McKinsey consultants, who wrote The War for Talent, identified fiveimperatives organisations should act on if they want the best managerial talentand strive to make talent a competitive advantage: – Create an employee value proposition that will make your company uniquelyattractive to talented people – Build a long-term recruiting strategy – Use job experiences, coaching and mentoring to cultivate managers’potential – Strengthen your talent pool by investing in A players, developing Bplayers and acting decisively on C players – Have a talent mindset that pervades the organisation – a conviction sharedby leaders throughout the company that competitive advantage comes from havingbetter talent at all levels. What motivates winners? Individuals with the will to win will create organisations that win. How canhuman resources help create an environment where that will happen? Principallythrough the development of a ‘buzzing’ and enjoyable working environment wherecreativity, diversity and innovation are championed. HR can help by developing and implementing systems which include andencourage loyalty, informality, support when needed, challenge, honestfeedback, coaching and empowerment. Remember, innovative and creative people often crave management and rewardand recognition systems that transcend those typical of hierarchies. Research by the Talent Management Guide’s authors shows they like to seerisk-taking encouraged, for example, and rewards based on contribution to ideasand results rather than on grades and targets alone. Coaching, training and wisdom Training is key to workforce development. It is especially pertinent and attractive to very good performers, but notif it is provided in an ad hoc fashion. Research indicates they want clearlystructured training programmes and coaching. The latter incorporates honest, open and regular feedback and also creates arole for mentors – often senior and experienced staff are able to give relevantand valuable knowledge, advice and motivation. Individuals should be encouragedto understand that they need to play a significant part in originating anddeveloping their own training and coaching paths. Coaching from the top level down – as highlighted in Daniel Goleman’s workThe New Leaders – will help unleash individual and corporate potential. Talent spotting Talent identification processes are notoriously unreliable and too oftenbased on intuition and hearsay. Personnel Today’s One Stop Guide to TalentManagement gives cogent advice on how to identify talent and future potential.A sound system should: – Assess people against high competence and performance standards – Identify and allocate development opportunities to advance people – Provide feedback to the organisation on the breadth and depth of thetalent pool – Help identify talent weaknesses and shortfalls in specific business areas.Spotting people with future potential is notoriously hit and miss. But thereare various approaches and structural conditions which help. Just ask yourselfif your organisation’s assessment process is viewed as negative or positive,whether your company espouses openness and honesty, and if your line managershave the nous and skills needed to assess talent in their areas. The answers tothese and other issues will help in implementing an effective system foridentifying those with true and relevant potential. Action points…Get senior management involved in talent management.Success depends upon everyone from the chief exec to line managers believingtalent is a top priority Set in place talent review processes which canaccurately identify A, B, and C performers and develop them accordinglyReview your training and coaching arrangements and makesure they’re structured to meet continuing individual development needs, ratherthan events which happen on an ad hoc basis Encourage and develop diversity within your workforceTry to create an honest, positive, thinking and innovativeworking environment Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more
