Owning a number of UK growth stocks has made a massive difference to my wealth in recent years. Not every growth share I’ve invested in has done well. However, quite a few, including ASOS, Keywords Studios, and Alpha FX, have delivered triple-digit returns for me.Here, I’m going to discuss two UK growth stocks I’d happily buy for my own portfolio as we begin February. I think both of these stocks have considerable long-term potential.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 online shopping growth stockOne growth stock I like the look of right now is Clipper Logistics (LSE: CLG). It’s an under-the-radar UK company that offers a range of services to retailers, including warehousing, delivery, and returns management. It has an amazing list of customers that includes John Lewis, Marks & Spencer, and Farfetch.I actually bought CLG for my own portfolio about three years ago, believing it was a good play on the growth of e-commerce. For the next two years however, its share price fell.Being a long-term investor though, I held on. This paid off. Last year, the stock rose about 100% as e-commerce trends were accelerated due to lockdowns. As a result of this strong performance, I’m now sitting on a profit.Looking ahead, I think CLG shares have the potential to keep rising in the long run. Recent trading updates have been very strong. City analysts also expect revenues and profits to increase substantially this year and next on the back of further growth in e-commerce.But there are risks to the investment case here. One thing that’s worth noting is that chairman Steve Parkin just sold about £60m worth of stock. This could be interpreted as a sign he sees the current valuation (the forward-looking P/E ratio is about 20) as too high. The company also has quite a bit of debt on its balance sheet. This could make the company more vulnerable in a downturn.Overall however, I think the long-term risk/reward proposition offered by CLG shares is attractive. I’d be happy to buy more stock for my portfolio at current levels.Transformational dealAnother UK growth stock I’m excited about as we begin February is online retailer Boohoo (LSE: BOO). It owns a number of very popular brands including PrettyLittleThing and Nasty Gal. Recently, it announced that it had bought the Debenhams brand in another strategic acquisition.I see the Debenhams acquisition – which has been described as a ‘transformational deal’ – as a very smart move from Boohoo. Debenhams is a well-known brand and its website is a top 10 retail website in the UK by traffic. If Boohoo can successfully rebuild and relaunch the Debenhams platform, it could potentially capture significant market share in areas such as beauty and homewares. It could also capture a whole new demographic.Of course, at this stage, there’s no guarantee the Debenhams acquisition will be a success. These kinds of major deals don’t always work out. However, given Boohoo’s track record with acquisitions, I’m cautiously optimistic it’ll be successful.Boohoo shares currently trade on a forward-looking P/E ratio of about 32. That’s a relatively high valuation which means if the company’s future performance disappoints, the shares could fall. However, given Boohoo’s rate of growth, I’m comfortable with it. I’d be happy to buy this growth stock for my portfolio today.center_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Image source: Getty Images Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares 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.

Western Force and Coach Graham part ways

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS “Richard has given a lot of himself to the Emirates Western Force and rugby in WA and for that we are grateful.  The ruling by the Board was an eventuality he was prepared for off the back of his announcement earlier in the week.  We acknowledge his effort and we will part amicably,” Reid said. PERTH, AUSTRALIA – JANUARY 10: Richard Graham instruct his players during a Western Force Super Rugby training session at UWA Sports Park on January 10, 2011 in Perth, Australia. (Photo by Paul Kane/Getty Images) Graham leaving the Force for its rivals the RedsThe Western Force will see out the remainder of the 2012 season under a new coaching structure after the RugbyWA Board today informed Richard Graham he would be stood down as Head Coach with immediate effect.Following the announcement earlier this week that Graham had triggered a clause in his contract allowing him to move to rival franchise Queensland next year, the RugbyWA Board sought and received feedback from a range of stakeholders including the playing group.Graham announced earlier this week he would be heading to Queensland next season on a three-year deal to replace Ewen McKenzie, who will become coaching director of the Super Rugby champions.For the club’s remaining eight matches this season a coaching panel of Nick Stiles, Phil Blake and Andrew Scotney will manage the load, with additional resources and input being provided by Captain David Pocock and club legend Nathan Sharpe.“The Board has determined that a change to the coaching structure is for the betterment of the Emirates Western Force with still half a season to play in 2012,” Chief Executive Officer Vern Reid said.  “The decision has come about after a carefully considered and consultative approach.“The Board put in place a clear process to determine the appropriate course of action and met regularly to receive feedback from key stakeholders.  The result is that a firm and informed decision in the best interests of the Emirates Western Force has been taken. The search for a new Head Coach is progressing well with more than 30 applicants already putting forward their interest in the position.  A number of other highly credentialed and experienced coaches have been invited to apply.Referencing checking of the shortlisted candidates will begin early next week.last_img read more

Huelgas de hambre en tres cárceles de Nueva Jersey

first_imgLas sucias condiciones, el encarcelamiento indefinido y la escalada de infecciones por COVID han desencadenado huelgas de hambre desesperadas en tres cárceles del condado de Nueva Jersey. Cada cárcel funciona como una prisión con fines de lucro, alquilando un espacio a $120 por día para que ICE encarcele a migrantes detenidos fuera del estado.Los autos que pasaron por la cárcel Bergen County tocaron la bocina en apoyo de los manifestantes y detenidos el 1 de diciembre.                                                                                           Crédito: Rowaida AbdelazizLos condados de Nueva Jersey utilizan los contratos para generar decenas de millones de dólares en ingresos anuales. La detención de inmigrantes se ha convertido en una “fuente de ingresos” que genera ingresos y recauda más de $87 millones en ingresos.Hay cuatro centros de detención de inmigrantes en Nueva Jersey: las cárceles de los condados de Bergen, Essex y Hudson, y el centro de detención de Elizabeth, administrado por CoreCivic, la empresa privada de prisiones con fines de lucro. La tasa de infección por COVID-19 se duplicó en la cárcel del condado de Hudson en Kearny entre la víspera de Navidad y la víspera de Año Nuevo. Este es el segundo pico de infecciones en la cárcel; el pico de primavera provocó 60 infecciones.A medida que se difundieron las noticias de las nuevas infecciones, dos docenas de detenidos de ICE comenzaron una huelga de hambre para exigir su liberación mientras continúan con sus apelaciones legales. La demanda de la liberación inmediata bajo fianza, o la liberación supervisada de todos los detenidos de ICE con afecciones médicas o mayores de 65 años, fue una prioridad.Los expertos en salud pública han pedido la descarcelación como una herramienta para salvar vidas en la lucha contra el COVID-19. En la cárcel del condado de Essex en Newark, un brote de COVID-19 provocó una huelga de hambre a partir del 28 de diciembre. Las huelgas de hambre de Hudson y Essex siguen a dos huelgas de hambre recientes en la cárcel del condado de Bergen y dos huelgas de hambre en marzo en la cárcel del condado de Hudson.Entre los informes de condiciones atroces, las cárceles no responden a las llamadas médicas por enfermedad; los presos con diabetes no reciben insulina y hay personas enfermas en las unidades que no están siendo examinadas ni tratadas. Los presos han informado de moho negro en las paredes, infestaciones de ratas, falta de desinfectantes y falta de calefacción. El teléfono y el equipo de video averiados separaron a los detenidos de sus familias y de sus abogados.Los detenidos en huelga de hambre en Bergen enfrentaron represalias que incluyeron negación de agua, negación de atención médica, negación de calefacción, ventanas bloqueadas y manipulación por parte del personal de la instalación. Los centros de detención de inmigrantes se han basado en un régimen de aislamiento generalizado en medio de esta pandemia, lo que agrava el daño causado por el virus.Además, ICE tomó represalias contra los participantes en la huelga de hambre de noviembre trasladando y deportando personas. Los huelguistas fueron enviados lejos de sus familias y simpatizantes a lugares tan lejanos como Buffalo y Miami.La lucha contra los contratos de ICEEl brote de COVID y las huelgas de hambre siguieron a la reciente renovación del contrato del condado de Hudson con ICE por hasta 10 años. El 24 de noviembre, la Junta de Propietarios Elegidos del Condado de Hudson votó 6 a 3 para renovar el contrato con ICE, a pesar de la protesta de la comunidad en contra del contrato.Una reunión maratónica de casi 13 horas exigió que el condado de Hudson no renovara el contrato. Más de 100 oradores públicos denunciaron a la junta y al ejecutivo del condado por no terminar el contrato en 2020 como se prometió. En una respuesta arrogante a los oradores que se oponían al contrato de la prisión, en las siguientes reuniones virtuales de Freeholder los funcionarios electos cerraron la reunión en lugar de escuchar a los oradores como están obligados a hacerlo.Luego de cinco noches consecutivas de vigilias y distribución de volantes en el vecindario de Jersey City Heights, el 12 de diciembre cuatro personas fueron arrestadas por los alguaciles del condado como represalia política e intimidación después de que los manifestantes acusaron a los funcionarios de tomar “dinero sangriento” frente a la casa del Ejecutivo del Condado de Hudson, Tom DeGise.A continuación, DeGise y otros cuatro propietarios del condado de Hudson obtuvieron una orden de restricción temporal contra cinco acusados nombrados, asociados con la Coalición Abolish ICE NY / NJ, y hasta 20 “Fulanos y Fulanas”.Una orden de restricción dictada por el juez de la corte del condado Jeffrey Jablonski el 8 de diciembre prohíbe las protestas dentro de los 200 pies de la casa de DeGise. La orden limita las protestas a una vez cada dos semanas, con una asistencia limitada a no más de 10 personas.La cárcel del condado de Essex en Newark ha enfrentado una oposición vocal a su contrato con ICE desde 2010, pero las protestas han aumentado en frecuencia e intensidad desde la pandemia.Las acciones de apoyo y las manifestaciones para los migrantes detenidos en la cárcel del condado de Bergen en Hackensack, Nueva Jersey, fueron brutalmente atacadas con granadas de humo y gas pimienta, y los alguaciles del condado arrestaron a nueve manifestantes el 12 de diciembre.La máquina del Partido Demócrata y ICLa venta del espacio carcelario a ICE es un ejemplo de cómo incluso las ganancias progresivas obtenidas a través de la lucha se vuelven cabeza bajo la presión financiera capitalista.En el 2017, después de años de presión pública, Nueva Jersey finalmente promulgó la Ley de Reforma de la Justicia Penal de Nueva Jersey, que elimina la fianza monetaria en el estado.Anteriormente, cientos de prisioneros estuvieron encarcelados durante meses en espera de juicio, sin poder recaudar entre $500 y $1.000 dólares en concepto de fianza.Después de que se aprobó la ley, la población de las cárceles del condado disminuyó un 35%. Pero eso no llevó al cierre de las cárceles. En cambio, la carrera estaba en marcha para encontrar nuevas formas de llenar las cárceles. ICE estaba encantado de ayudar.Cada una de las decisiones sobre los centros de detención las toman los políticos de la maquinaria del condado del Partido Demócrata. Sobre la base de la presión popular masiva contra la política de Trump de enjaular a niños migrantes, el gobernador demócrata liberal Phil Murphy y el fiscal general del estado de Nueva Jersey, Gurbir Grewal, emitieron una directiva muy publicitada por el incumplimiento estatal de ICE. El alcalde liberal demócrata de Jersey City, Fulop, impulsó el incumplimiento local de ICE. Sin embargo, ambos políticos excluyeron astutamente los contratos de detención de ICE.El Proyecto de Unidad de Inmigrantes Familiares de Nueva York (NYIFUP), el primer sistema de defensa pública del país para inmigrantes que enfrentan la deportación, emitió un comunicado el 29 de diciembre: “Con el aumento de COVID en Nueva York, Nueva Jersey y en todo el país, liberar a todas los inmigrantes en detención nunca ha sido más urgente. . . La huelga de hambre en curso es otro llamado urgente a la acción de los detenidos que corren enormes riesgos personales para exigir justicia y seguridad”.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

‘No Machine Infallible’: Plea In SC Seeks To Replace EVM’s With Ballot Paper In Forthcoming Elections

first_imgTop Stories’No Machine Infallible’: Plea In SC Seeks To Replace EVM’s With Ballot Paper In Forthcoming Elections Sanya Talwar25 Nov 2020 7:23 AMShare This – xA plea has been filed in the Supreme Court seeking a direction to the Election Commission to stop using electronic voting machine (EVM) and use ballot paper instead for the forthcoming polls.The plea has averred that EVMs are more prone to error and several other countries have banned its use as doubts have been raised on its transparency & accuracy.”That to save democracy, we must…Your free access to Live Law has expiredTo read the article, get a premium account.Your Subscription Supports Independent JournalismSubscription starts from ₹ 599+GST (For 6 Months)View PlansPremium account gives you:Unlimited access to Live Law Archives, Weekly/Monthly Digest, Exclusive Notifications, Comments.Reading experience of Ad Free Version, Petition Copies, Judgement/Order Copies.Subscribe NowAlready a subscriber?LoginA plea has been filed in the Supreme Court seeking a direction to the Election Commission to stop using electronic voting machine (EVM) and use ballot paper instead for the forthcoming polls.The plea has averred that EVMs are more prone to error and several other countries have banned its use as doubts have been raised on its transparency & accuracy.”That to save democracy, we must introduce the ballot paper system back in the electoral process in the country. Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) have replaced the old ballot paper system in India, although many countries of the world; including England, France, Germany, Netherlands, and the United States have banned the use of EVMs,” the plea reads.Filed on behalf of advocate C R Jaya Sukin, the plea states that electronic voting machines must be replaced across India with traditional ballot papers. “Voting through ballot papers is a more reliable and transparent method for the electoral process of any country,” the petitioner states.It is contended that EVM’s can be “tampered during its manufacturing” and that they do not even require any hacker or malware to manipulate the actual voting process.It is averred that “no machine anywhere in the world is infallible” and that EVM’s have many threats. These, the petitioner states include:”1. EVMs can easily be hacked.2. The complete profile of a voter can be accessed through EVMs.3. EVMs can be used to manage the results of an election.4. The EVMs can easily be tampered by an election official.5. Even the election software of an EVM can be changed.”In this background, it is stated that, if the computers in the Prime Minister’s office and the personal computer of no less than the national security adviser, M.K. Narayanan have been hacked, isn’t it ludicrous to assume that electronic voting machines locked up in storerooms in districts and remote rural locations would remain secure and not fall prey to the miscreants?Questions have been raised over EVMs in the past and Election Commission has maintained that EVMs are safe and tamper proof.It is contended that Indian EVMs can be hacked both before and after elections to alter election results. Apart from manipulating the EVM software and replacing many hardware parts discussed above, discussions with knowledgeable sources revealed that Indian EVMs can be hacked in many ways.Apropos this the plea seeks Issuance of a writ of mandamus or any other appropriate Writ or Order or Direction or any suggestion or observation or particularly the nature of Writ, by giving direction to the Respondents No.1 (ECI) to stop the use of Electronic Voting Machine (EVM) and use ballot paper in any forthcoming elections.Next Storylast_img read more

No magic solution

first_img Previous Article Next Article Companies have embraced consultants with almost indecent haste. But, saysCalvert Markham, HR departments should tread cautiously when going down theoutsourcing routeHad you visited the Ford manufacturing plant at Dearborn, Michigan, 80 yearsago you would have seen coal and iron ore going in one end and cars appearingat the other. Today, much of that plant lies unused, and Ford’s involvement inmanufacturing is likely to become even smaller, according to The Economist. Ina recent article, it reported that “today’s metal bashers will disappear.In their place will be vehicle brand owners [which] will do only the core tasksof designing, engineering and marketing vehicles.”1 This is just one example of how the strategic fashion has shifted from‘make’ to ‘buy’ – and not just in manufacturing. When I started my career (withICI), security, cleaning, the canteen and other services were all runinternally. Nowadays it would be an unusual company that did not contract themout – IT services and now complete functions are outsourced. And HR is nostranger to this, with companies such as Exult and Xchanging offering to takeon much of the routine work. All this is great news for consultancies and other professional serviceproviders. Quite apart from outsourcing, as organisations have slimmed downthey have less capacity to take on significant projects, and so call onconsultancies to support them. And consultancies have boomed as a consequence.At this point I must declare a personal interest: I am an HR consultant, and myfirm trains consultants (among other things). But having made that confession,you may be surprised that I propose to question whether the use of consultantsis an unalloyed benefit. My advice is: think twice before engaging consultants. There is more to aconsultant engagement than simply outsourcing work. Why the caution? Below is alist of potential problems outsourcing can bring: – Knowledge leakage: much of the know-how capital of an enterprise lies inthe heads of its people, and one of the jobs of the HR department is to nurtureand grow that capital. Ground-breaking work allocated to outsiders means theyget the benefits of the learning. Ask yourself: is the journey as important as the destination? – Demotivating your staff: when you eventually become an independent HRconsultant, do this: ask the people at the bottom of your client organisationwhat they think, and tell the top management what they said. They are alwayssurprised. Robert Townsend originally accused consultants of borrowing your watch totell you the time, but that is often because the top of the organisationdoesn’t listen to the bottom. Ask yourself: do our people already know what to do? Blame shifting: of course, you may have political reasons for gettingconsultants to do what your own people can do. But remember – there is no suchthing as a consultancy project – they are simply client projects in whichconsultants are engaged to help. Ask yourself: am I subcontracting work – or just risk? One of the perennial features of consultancy, however, is that if things gowell, the client takes the credit; if they go wrong, the consultant takes theblame. (They say that if you rearrange the letters of ‘consultant’ you get‘scapegoat’.) Enron? No surprises While on this topic, I should mention Enron. It was probably only the pressthat was surprised with this affair. Everybody knows that: – auditing firms get a lot of other work from their clients – it is a fiction that shareholders appoint the firm that audits the companyon their behalf – they mostly rubberstamp management’s decision at the AGM – sooner or later, something like Enron would happen. In June 2001, HarvardBusiness Review presciently commented: “As for accounting firms, if theyhelp a company meet its numbers – sometimes by ignoring, or even suggesting,some pretty dubious bookkeeping legerdemain – then they can usually count onretaining the company’s lucrative auditing business and maybe pick up aconsulting contract as well.”2 So, no surprises there. What would have been surprising would have beensomeone holding up their hand and taking responsibility. A banner for HR Mother Teresa was once asked to take part in a march against the war inVietnam – she refused, saying that she only marched for things, not againstthem. So what should HR be marching for? Consider caution. Preserve social capital: The Roman scribe Petronius Arbiter famously said:”We trained hard, but it seemed every time we were beginning to form ateam we would be reorganised…We tend to meet every situation by reorganisingand a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress, whileproducing confusion, inefficiency and demoralisation.”3 The informal systems of trust, norms and networks is known as socialcapital. Change frequently destroys social capital as many downsizedorganisations have found to their cost. A simple way of destroying socialcapital with your customers is to make sure you frequently change the salespeople serving them. Recent research has shown that social capital contributes not only to thequality of life, but also to the economic well being of society.4 So, start deploying the virtues of the informal organisation – Enable people’s learning: providing mentoring and coaching is a corporateresponsibility. With de-layered and slimmed down organisation structures, it isoften difficult to provide the level of support required. So individualsthemselves have to take responsibility for their own learning.5 But rarely are they equipped to do so. In the past couple of years, my firmhas been running courses for clients that we privately call “theconsultant’s survival kit”. An important module in these courses ispersonal development – identifying performance development needs and how theymight be best met. So, help people help themselves – Develop consultant competencies: a simple distinction is that whereas managementis about maintaining continuity through processes, consultancy is aboutinfluencing discontinuity through projects. But the reality is that much ofmanagement effort nowadays is directed to change – discontinuity – throughprojects, often working in multi-functional teams exercising influence, ratherthan command and control. So managers – in this aspect of their role – have touse the same skills as a consultant. And, of course, HR specialists operate for much of their work as internalconsultants. Indeed, with much of their work now outsourced, their job toobecomes more about the management of discontinuity. So, acquire a consultant’s competence.

USS Rhode Island undocks in overhaul milestone

first_img U.S. Navy’s ballistic missile submarine USS Rhode Island achieved an overhaul milestone at Norfolk Naval Shipyard (NNSY) undocking ahead of schedule.Entering water on July 17, the Ohio-class submarine set a new record for Engineered Refueling Overhauls (EROs) on the East Coast, beating NNSY’s former record set on USS Alaska (SSBN 732) almost a decade ago.90 percent of the production work for Rhode Island’s ERO was completed and certified while the boat was in dock.Rhode Island is now pier-side to finish its major shipyard availability during which the submarine will be refueled and upgraded before returning to support the country’s nuclear deterrence strategy.The Rhode Island team celebrated another success earlier in the availability, completing the demanding refueling package in just 217 days, beating their goal by three days and setting an NNSY record.Rhode Island has been at NNSY since December 2015. During its last several months at the shipyard, the boat will be undergoing reactor and weapons systems work.“Thanks to the Rhode Island team for leading us in this monumental achievement – leading the way in safety, planning, and execution of quality work on time,” said Shipyard Commander Capt. Scott Brown. “America’s Shipyard and the Rhode Island crew certainly have our sights set on a successful end game. Thanks for all involved in a safe and successful undocking evolution.”In addition to the small amount of production work still to be accomplished on the boat, system testing and certification and ship’s force training will be conducted, culminating in sea trials next year.
