See all posts by Peter Stephens “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” The FTSE 100 may have recovered some of its lost ground over recent weeks, but a number of cheap shares continue to offer long-term total return potential.Buying them now may not lead to high returns in the short run due to ongoing risks such as the potential for a spike in coronavirus cases later in the year.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…However, taking advantage of attractive valuations among high-quality companies could improve your financial position in the coming years and help you to retire early.As such, now could be the right time to buy these two stocks with £5k, or any other amount.FTSE 100 utility stock Severn TrentUtility stocks such as Severn Trent (LSE: SVT) have generally outperformed the FTSE 100 over the last few months. The company reported a resilient operational and financial performance in its recent annual results. Its lower reliance on the performance of the wider economy may mean that it is able to more easily overcome what may prove to be a challenging period for many businesses.Furthermore, Severn Trent could become an increasingly popular stock among income-seeking investors. It currently has a dividend yield of around 4%. This is relatively attractive as a result of many of its index peers having cut their dividends, or having the potential to do so in the coming months. It is also likely to appeal to investors while interest rates are at historic lows, which could prove to be a sustained period of time as policymakers seek to support the economy’s prospects.Therefore, Severn Trent may lack the recovery potential of some of its FTSE 100 index peers. However, its defensive qualities and income appeal may mean that demand for its shares rises, and that it offers resilient total returns in the long run.Standard Life AberdeenThe share price of FTSE 100 wealth management business Standard Life Aberdeen (LSE: SLA) is still down by 22% since the start of the year despite its recent rise. A weak economic outlook is likely to weigh on financial markets, which could have a negative impact on its performance in the short run.The company’s most recent trading update highlighted its balance sheet strength. It was able to dispose of assets over the last few months to further improve its financial standing. It has also been able to maintain its operations despite lockdown restrictions, while a relatively positive performance in terms of its assets under management suggests that it has long-term recovery potential.Standard Life Aberdeen may experience a period of high volatility should a global economic downturn cause investor sentiment to decline. However, over the long run its business model and strategy suggest that it offers good value for money after its recent share price fall during the FTSE 100’s market crash.

HoustonThis article is based on remarks given by Crissman during a Workers World Party webinar on April 9: “Free Them All! COVID-19 and Racist Mass Incarceration.”Workers World Party provides nearly 1,000 free newspaper subscriptions to incarcerated people. Readers interested in supporting this can donate at patreon.com/wwp.We’re particularly excited about revitalizing a section of Workers World newspaper dedicated to covering prisoners and the prison-industrial complex. This prisoners page draws on a legacy of newsletters like “Through the Looking Glass: A Women and Childrens Prison Newsletter,” “The Bond,” the monthly newsletter of the American Servicemen’s Union, and a variety of written communications.Comrade Leslie Feinberg, who began writing about prisoner issues for WW in 1975, became the editor of the first WW prisoners page. The page developed from the Prisoner Solidarity Committee’s dedicated support of the uprisings at Auburn Correctional Facility and Attica Correctional Facility in New York State in 1970 and 1971.This new section of WW — Tear Down the Walls — has several aims, one being radical communication across the barriers put up to keep us in or out. We are committed to providing a space for incarcerated folks to communicate with each other and for them to put things out to those outside.Another goal is to encourage broader analysis of different forms of incarceration. Michelle Alexander, scholar and author of “The New Jim Crow,” warns against e-carceration via ankle monitors as a reformist concession to abolitionist visions of decarceration.In addition we will communicate ideas on how to improve conditions. Harm mitigation and reduction of suffering in the face of these deadly systems is no small thing, provided that reform is not the end of the fight against this modern mutation of slavery.The prisoners page seeks to reduce our numbers in jails, prisons and detention centers. Another aim is to shorten sentences, while believing that society needs to be radically changed so prisons cease to exist. This necessitates guaranteeing human needs like food, health care and housing in a society that disperses the abundance of those things in an oppressive manner that can only be called deliberate apartheid.We understand that there are many kinds of prisoners — women, children, LGBTQ2+ folks; migrants and refugees in concentration camps; workers forced to wear ankle monitors under house arrest; those on parole, on probation, those who have been released from prison but face restrictions on their ability to work and vote because of prior convictions — and any combination of the above.Tear Down the Walls dedicates itself to the project of prison abolition and against prison imperialism. Prison abolition is a necessary and long-standing battle. When we say “Free Them All” that means no exceptions. Racist and anti poor logic argues to put people there in the first place; we cannot and will not let it decide who is to be released.We know prisons are monuments to white supremacy and colonialism. We see that particularly in the United States’ most influential exports — mass incarceration and militarized border violence. The U.S. government is involved in prison systems of at least 38 different countries.These U.S. programs involve construction of new prisons as well as prison guard training, accreditation, data management and overall design. The maximum-security prison La Tramacúa in Valledupar, Colombia, is modeled exactly after the maximum-security Coleman Prison in Florida.Common features of prisons structured on the U.S. model include overcrowding, neglect of health care, use of torture and extreme/punitive isolation, transfer of prisoners far away from families and communities, severe restrictions on visits including legal defenders and prison militarization. (Alliance for Global Justice, 2018)In the face of the coronavirus pandemic, we’ve seen those in power retaliate against unarmed people in detention for going on hunger and work strikes by using pepper spray, rubber bullets and other punitive measures.These actions only strengthen our resolve to change the conditions necessary to make the generative project of abolition possible. We say no to prison imperialism, no New Jim Crows, free them all and tear down the walls!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this read more
Feeder Cattle GFQ21 (AUG 21) 151.18 2.78 Previous articleAmerican Ethanol Goes Old School in DarlingtonNext articleGrain Farm Incomes Expected To Drop Significantly in 2015 Gary Truitt RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Facebook Twitter Battle Resistance With the Soy Checkoff ‘Take Action’ Program By Gary Truitt – Aug 5, 2015 Facebook Twitter Dr Chris HurtThe nation’s beef cow herd has started down the path of the largest expansion in 25 years, according to analysis by Purdue Ag Economist Chris Hurt.. The last major expansion was from 1990 to 1995 when the herd grew by 10 percent. The industry had started on a modest expansion in 2005 and 2006, but producers aborted that expansion cycle due to the Southern Plains drought and the start of the high feed-price era late in 2006. Now, with pastures and grassland restored for most of the country and the feeling that feed prices will remain moderate, this expansion is off to a fast start.Beef cow operations began the process of expanding the herd in the last-half of 2014. As of July 1, 2015 the number of beef cows in the country was up 2.5 percent according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s producer survey. But a more rapid expansion is likely in the coming year according to beef replacement heifer numbers. Beef heifer retention in January of 2015 was reported by USDA to be up 4 percent. In the recent mid-year cattle update, USDA says that heifer retention is now seven percent higher than year ago levels.Early indicators are for a rapid expansion. One way to measure the rate of expansion is to observe the number of beef heifers being retained as a percent of the beef cow herd. In the 1990 to 1995 expansion, that number peaked a bit above 16 percent and remained at that rate for three years. The mid-year USDA data shows that the current expansion has already accelerated to the 16 percent rate. While expansion on the new cattle production cycle has launched out of the gate, the question of how long it will persist will be determined over the next two to four years.It is not hard to find explanations for why the current expansion accelerated so rapidly. The beef cow herd had been shrunk by the Southern Plains drought and the high feed-price era. Between 2007 and 2014, national beef cow numbers dropped by 12 percent, with the Southern Plains, the largest beef cow region, declining 21 percent.By 2014, per capita beef supplies in the U.S. had shrunk by 17 percent from 2007 levels. Beef was in short supply and beef and cattle prices responded strongly to the upside. Nebraska finished cattle traded above $160 per hundredweight for the period from October 2014 to May 2015. More importantly to cow/calf producers, calf prices were also at record highs. Steer calves at Oklahoma City weighting 500-550 pounds had monthly average prices above $275 per hundredweight for the months from October 2014 to June 2015. Ultimately, abundant grass, low feed prices, record cattle prices, and a rosy outlook combined to entice producers into expansion.The heavy retention of heifers in the last year is one of the factors that reduced beef supplies and led to record high beef prices. Beef supplies were down about 6 percent in the last-half of 2014 and about 4 percent in the first-half of 2015. However, beef supplies are expected to shift toward growth in the second-half of this year with a 1 percent increase and by a more significant 4 percent in 2016.Higher beef supplies in coming months and the sharp increase in pork and chicken supplies likely mean that peak beef prices on this cycle have already passed. Peak monthly prices may have occurred in November 2014 when finished cattle prices averaged $170 per hundredweight and 500-550 pound Oklahoma City steer calves averaged $303.Finished cattle prices dropped below year-earlier prices in late-June and continued to drop to $145 by the end of July. Decreasing prices from early spring into the end of summer is the normal seasonal pattern, but the drop in prices has been larger this year, falling from a spring high of $167 in early April.Futures markets have been surprisingly negative. Using futures to forecast forward finished cattle prices suggest that prices will recover back into the very low $150s by late in the year, average in the higher $140s in the first quarter of 2016, and average in the mid $140s in the second quarter of 2016. Prices are then expected to fall to the lower $140s by the summer of 2016 under the pressure of growing beef supplies.Obviously, lower finished cattle prices over the coming year will put pressure on calf prices as well. Overall, calf prices are expected to continue to provide profitable returns for cow/calf operations in 2016. However, the profit stimulus to expand cow numbers is not likely to be nearly as strong as it was in the past 12 months. For these reasons, the rapid movement toward beef cow expansion that has been experienced in the past 12 months will likely slow. This means the rapid rate of heifer retention may not continue through 2016. If so, the multi-year persistence of expansion experienced during 1990 to 1995 will likely be shorter for this cycle.

Randy Dwyer, AFBF advocacy and grassroots development director, says a vote Tuesday means rural voices will count.“It’s extremely important that folks who live in rural America take the time and exercise the right to vote because if we don’t do that and make our voices heard, concerns and issues that are near and dear to folks in rural communities will not be heard or represented in local government, state government, or at the federal level.”I Farm, I Vote, and Vote for Ag, are two Farm Bureau campaigns to spread the word about the importance of voting in the midterm elections.“Many states have used the I Farm, I Vote or a similar slogan to try and educate their member about the candidates out there. Many of our Farm Bureau members have received something in the mail about a voter guide and who is an endorsed candidate in their area. Again, this helps to identify candidates that are worthy of our vote.”Farm Bureau has resources available online for voters to learn more about issues and candidates.“We have on fb.org/advocacy a resource page for voters to go and find out where your polling place is, get some information about the candidates, to register to vote if that’s still possible at this point, it’s a great resource for anyone to take advantage of. Also, visit your state Farm Bureau website to see who the endorsed candidates might be.”Source: American Farm Bureau Federation read more

According to the Oxford Review of Economic Policy, the average job tenure in 1984 was five years although this dropped to a low of four years and six months in 1989 before rising slightly in 1993.By gender, the figures show that men tend to stay in a job for longer. The 1993 figure for men is six months and four months; for women it is four years and three months.But according to a recent report by Age Concern, the average figures for job tenure do not reflect the fact that many employees are spending shorter and shorter periods with an employer.The report, Future Work and Lifestyles, also found there have been large rises in the number of people on fixed-term contracts.• 020-8658 7200, www.ace.org.uk read more
