Jonathan Smith | Thursday, 5th March, 2020 | More on: LLOY Image source: Getty Images See all posts by Jonathan Smith Why is the Lloyds share price continuing to fall? Lloyds Banking Group (LSE: LLOY) has long been a popular stock to hold for retail investors. On most days it ranks in the top five most traded stocks within the FTSE 100 index.Yet just because it is a popular stock, does not mean that it is a certain buy. If we rewind to the aftermath of the general election in December last year, I would have agreed that the share price had strong upside on the back of a supposedly-business-friendly Conservative victory. Added to this was the successful passage of the Withdrawal Agreement through the House of Commons, which enabled the UK to leave the European Union at the end of last month and get some degree of clarity on Brexit.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…Both these factors were positive for the bank, especially as it is one of the more retail-heavy banks within the UK, and so it is more sensitive to the sentiment of the retail sector like you and I. The share price rallied close to the highs of the year around 65p in December, but since then has seen a linear downtrend, currently trading around 47p.Why is it continuing to fall?Firstly, we have to acknowledge the undeniable influence of the coronavirus and the market wide sell-off that it has caused. Investors are scared and do not want their money in equities, so they are selling stocks and buying in to safer havens such as gold and bonds.Very few (if any) stocks have been able to even tread water during this sell-off over the past few weeks, and so part of the move lower in the Lloyds share price can be attributed to the risk sentiment from the virus.However, a fall of over 27% from late December until now cannot be solely put down to the virus, as this does not stack up on the timings and the broader FTSE 100 sell-off (which has only really moved lower since the middle of February, and only by around 13%).Another reason for the Lloyds drop is down to its weak 2019 results, which were released last week. It showed a 26% drop in pre-tax profit to £3bn, part of which can be put down to PPI payments. But even without that, it would not have been a strong year. So the move lower over the past week can be due to investors going through the results and deciding that this is not a share they want to invest in.Looking forward, a final reason the share price is falling is due to the outlook for the bank. Interest rates may be cut here in the UK to counteract the impact of the virus, which would be negative for Lloyds, which would see margins squeezed even further. And the situation with Brexit is not as rosy as we thought — no trade deal would certainly hit the bank hard.Overall, while I am not selling out of Lloyds at the moment, I will be waiting to buy more after the further weakness that I think we will see over the next few months. It is a good long-term buy at 47p, but I think you could be buying it at levels around 40p soon  and that is even better!

US – #WeeklyAddress: May 6 – May 12: San Francisco journalist says police raided his home after he refused to identify source

first_img News April 28, 2021 Find out more For the latest updates, follow RSF on twitter @RSF_en. CREDIT: BRYAN CARMODY Former government intelligence analyst has been charged with leaking classified information Daniel Hale, a former government intelligence analyst who worked for the National Security Agency (NSA) and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, was arrested on May 9 and charged in a federal court under the Espionage Act with five crimes related to the disclosure of classified information. This is the third whistleblower the Trump administration has prosecuted under the Espionage Act. Though the reporter Hale shared information with is not named in the indictment, his description matches that of Jeremy Scahill, one of the founding editors of The Intercept, an investigative news website. For more on this, read RSF’s publication: US – Trump administration prosecutes third whistleblower under Espionage Act. Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says Lawmakers in Washington, DC, are proposing a change in the city’s Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) law that grant any person the right to request access to federal agency records or information. The proposed changes would restrict records requests for government emails to matters relating only to official business, excluding personal emails and conversations. The proposal would also allow DC government agencies to reject requests that don’t include specific details about the documents being requested. There are concerns that these proposals could prevent the general public and reporters from exposing ethical breaches in which government officials mix public and private business. The DC Council chairman, who proposed the legislation, said the change is aimed at lowering the number of FOIA requests received, which have put “an increasing burden on our general counsel.” The United States ranks 48th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index. Organisation FOIA restrictions would shield DC officials who use email for personal business White House continues to limit press access Connecticut reporter detained while covering protest Police detained reporter Tara O’Neill on May 9 while she covered a demonstration. O’Neill, who works for Hearst Connecticut Media, was covering a protest in Bridgeport, Connecticut, marking the second anniversary of a police shooting that killed a 15-year-old boy. When officers ordered everyone off the street during the protest, O’Neill identified herself as a journalist, but was still handcuffed and taken to police headquarters. She was detained for about 30 minutes and eventually released without charge. “The fact that a local journalist was arrested for doing her job and reporting on the actions of police and protesters is extremely troubling,” said Matt DeRienzo, vice president of news and digital content for Hearst Connecticut Media. “The public deserves a full explanation of how it happened and what steps will be taken to make sure that the freedom of the press and the public’s right to know is not infringed upon like this in the future.” There was no comment from the police department.

Two weeks prior, police appeared at Carmody’s house asking for the identity of a source who had shown Carmody a confidential police report following the February death of the city’s public defender. About ten police reportedly entered Carmody’s house on Friday morning with a sledgehammer and a warrant claiming they were investigating “stolen or embezzled” property. He refused to disclose the identity of his source to the police or to FBI agents who questioned him about the case. He was then handcuffed for six hours as police ransacked his home with guns drawn and seized his electronic devices, taking at least four tablets, seven computers, 10 hard drives, a dozen phones and two cameras, as well as notebooks Carmody used while reporting. They eventually found the police report in a safe in Carmody’s home. While San Francisco Police Department defended its actions in a statement, calling the raid “one step in the process of investigating a potential case of obstruction of justice,” press freedom advocates have raised concerns that the raid was in violation of California’s Shield Law. United StatesAmericas WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists June 7, 2021 Find out more News As it continues to set a record for the number of days without holding an official press briefing, the Trump administration has enforced new rules limiting access to White House press passes altogether. The new rules state that no credentials will be given to journalists who do not come to the White House at least 90 out of the previous 180 days, claiming the new rules ensure a heightened level of security. For veteran journalist Dana Milbank of The Washington Post, this meant White House officials revoked the hard press pass he has held for the past 21 years. He was one of eight Washington Post reporters whose press passes were revoked, although his colleagues were granted exceptions not long after losing them. Milbank wrote in a May 8 op-ed that the White House offered him and other reporters whose credentials were revoked a limited six-month pass. The White House also barred reporters from attending a cabinet meeting on May 8 that was initially open to the press according to a tweet from NBC’s Peter Alexander. As of May 12, it has been 62 days since Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders held an on-camera press briefing in the White House. Sanders has only held two official briefings in 2019.

Lindeman went the distance in every playoff game he started. Brian Love, Muir junior: The Mustangs pitcher came off the football field as the Muir quarterback and became the ace of this record-breaking baseball team. Love went 7-1 with a 1.11 ERA, including a 6-0 shutout over Rancho Christian in the second round of the CIF D5 playoffs. Love walked 13 and struck out 38.

Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Ethan Firestone, Maranatha sophomore: The Minutemen catcher didn’t get many at-bats, but he still dominated nonetheless. He transferred from Notre Dame & had to wait his time to play and then threw out 12 of 13 base runners that tried to steal on him, he also saved multiple runs on what would have been wild pitches and back-picked multiple opponents throughout their CIF D3 title run.

Offensively, he was a beast with 47 hits (third in the area) with his .471 average, 34 runs scored, 16 doubles, three triples and three home runs for the D6 and Prep League champs. Sal Tabullo, Maranatha senior: The Minutemen left fielder, and cousin of PHS’ Alvie Castro, didn’t get his shot until later in the season and he shined when called upon. Tabullo hit .358 with 19 hits, 17 RBIs and he scored 17 runs. He had one double, a triple and home run for the CIF D3 champions, and played a solid left field.

The PHS senior is one of the brightest players around and his ability to read batters helped the Bulldogs pitching staff. He finished with 68 career hits at PHS. Valente Vera, Muir senior: The Mustangs pitcher-third baseman was the guy everybody looked to as the Mustangs made their program relevant again by finishing third in the Pacific??

Will Downing, Maranatha junior: The Minutemen pitcher went 4-0 this season with a 0.20 ERA.

He is even better in the classroom with a GPA north of 4.25. Brennen Mace, La Salle senior: The Lancers catcher was the rock behind the plate for his pitcher’s and his offensive prowess came out of nowhere. After not hitting above .150 before this season, Mace batted .435 with 30-plus hits and more than 20 RBIs, including a three-run playoff home run at Charter Oak and a two-run double in the D3 title game against Maranatha.

He also had seven doubles and three triples. Treloar won two games on the mound and struck out 40. Over the past two years, he has 51 hits and 37 RBIs. Nick Iverson, Maranatha junior: The Minutemen shortstop made his name with his glove and range since transferring from Notre Dame, but he also contributed offensively with a .333 average.

Sports The 2018 Pasadena Sports Now Baseball All-Stars Published on Wednesday, June 6, 2018 | 11:21 pm Landon Smith, La Salle senior: The Lancers pitcher got his one shot at the varsity level and made the most of it.

Smith’s shining moment was a two-hit, 1-0 victory over Temecula Valley in the second round of the CIF Division 3 playoffs.

first_img Pinterest WhatsApp By Digital AIM Web Support – March 4, 2021 Facebook TAGS  SMART Medical Systems receives Additional FDA Clearance for its G-EYE® Colonoscope, and Commences Clinical Work in the USA Previous articleIndependent evaluation validates Alight medical claim cost savingsNext articlePinterest Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2020 Results Digital AIM Web Support Local Newscenter_img Pinterest Twitter Twitter RA’ANANA, Israel, Feb. 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — SMART Medical Systems Ltd., a developer and manufacturer of innovative endoscopy products, announced the initiation of commercial and clinical effort in the USA, following issuance of a second FDA clearance for its flagship G-EYE® Colonoscope, based on Fujifilm’s 510(k) cleared colonoscopes. The G-EYE® Colonoscope is a 510(k) cleared colonoscope, remanufactured by SMART to include a proprietary balloon at its distal bending section. SMART’s FDA cleared G-EYE® Colonoscopes include selected models of the leading endoscope brands – Fujifilm, Olympus, and Pentax. Withdrawal of the G-EYE® Colonoscope with the balloon moderately inflated during colonoscopy, assists in controlling the colonoscope’s field of view and positioning. In published clinical studies, G-EYE® colonoscopy demonstrated substantial increase over standard colonoscopy in the detection of pre-cancerous polyps which are the precursors of colon cancer (GIE 2019; 89: 545-553; and Endoscopy 2015; 47: 238–244). The first G-EYE® installation in the USA took place at NYU Langone Health in collaboration with Fujifilm. Following initial procedures and live case demonstration during the NYSGE Annual Course’s live endoscopy session, hosted by NYU Langone Health in December, the G-EYE® is being used in the NYU Langone endoscopy unit. “I am now using the G-EYE® integrated balloon to gain better stability of the scope during withdrawal and increase colon surface area exposure,” said Dr. Seth Gross, Clinical Chief in the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at NYU Langone Health. “The effect of the G-EYE® balloon has been shown in clinical studies to be a valuable and innovative new tool in the prevention and early detection of colorectal cancer.” “We are excited to be the first medical center in the USA performing colonoscopy with the G-EYE® Colonoscope, and providing the newest-available technology to our patients,” said Dr. Mark Pochapin, Director of the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at NYU Grossman School of Medicine / NYU Langone Health. Brian Cochrane, CCO of SMART’s US subsidiary, said, “Following the seamless and flawless integration of the G-EYE® into routine use at NYU Langone Health, we are confident it can become a natural and valuable tool for any GI practice, may it be academic, community hospital or an ambulatory endoscopy center.” “We are committed to our mission of making the G-EYE® a standard of care in colonoscopy,” added Gadi Terliuc, SMART’s CEO. “Solid clinical data and close interaction with the clinical community will pave the way for broad acceptance of the G-EYE® technology in daily routine.” Drs.

The Court opined,”Neither the offences under Section 34 IPC nor Section 120-B IPC are the independent offences. These are the offences to be read in the substantive offences.”The Court further said,”It is very strange that the charge-sheet has been filed only under Sections 34 and 120-B IPC. How the charge-sheet under Sections 34 and 120-B IPC can be filed without adding the substantive offences”In view of the above, the Court said that it was required that the investigating officer, who has investigated the offence, and the circle officer, who would have perused the same, shall remain present before this Court on the next date of listing.They have been ordered to furnish their explanation in writing on personal affidavits as to how the charge-sheet under Sections 34 and 120-B IPC would go to stand in the scrutiny without the substantive offences being mentioned therein.The matter has been listed for further hearing on 17th November, 2020EDITOR’S COMMENTSIt may be noted that the Apex Court’s ruling in Gurudatta Mal Vs. State of U.P. AIR 1965 SC 257, makes it amply clear that Section 34 of the Indian Penal Code does not create a distinct offence; it only lays down the principle of joint criminal liability.The Apex Court in Gurudatta Mal (supra) had ruled that,”The necessary conditions for the application of Section 34 of the Code are common intention to commit an offence and participation by all the accused in doing an act or acts in furtherance of that common intention. If these two ingredients are established, all the accused would be liable for the said offence.”In other words, Section 34 1PC contemplates the doing of an act by several persons in furtherance of a common intention. The constructive liability under this provision would arise if the following two conditions are fulfilled:-(1) There must be common intention to commit a criminal act; and(2) There must be participation of all the persons in doing of such act in furtherance of that intention.If these two ingredients are established, all the accused would be liable for the offence which has been committed12B Not Substantive Offence?As far as the charge under S. 120-B IPC concerned, it may be noted that in the Indian Penal Code, as originally enacted, Criminal Conspiracy was not an offence in itself.Criminal Conspiracy was made a substantive offence in the year 1913 by way of introducing Chapter V-A in the Indian Penal Code. The idea was to prevent the commission of crimes by, so to, speak, nipping them in the bud.While Section 120-A defines “Criminal Conspiracy”, Section 120-B provides for the punishment for the offence of Criminal Conspiracy.Criminal conspiracy, as defined under S.120-A IPC, consists of an agreement between two or more persons to do, or cause to be done an illegal act or an act which is not illegal, by illegal means (see Noor Mohammad Mohd. Yusuf Momin vs State Of Maharashtra 1971 AIR 885).Notably, the Offence under S. 120-B differs from other offences in the sense that under this section, mere agreement is made an offence, even if no step is taken to carry out that agreement.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Storylast_img read more

Although he is well known and respected as a canvas and clay artist, Godwin’s most “seen” art is his metal sculptures.Godwin has life-size sculptures at Disney World and at Daytona Beach Florida and Dayton, Ohio, where his Wright Brothers “first flight” sculptures can be seen. Latest Stories Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Sponsored Content Skip Corrao, who is executive producer of the program, said “Alabama Art Seen” was created by university faculty and is produced and hosted by media students. Three episodes will air this month.“The program highlights artists and musicians of Alabama while providing students behind the camera with hands-on professional experience in the television industry,” Corrao said.“We produce one or two episodes a semester. The students begin the semester by researching and pitching segment ideas. These ideas are then voted on by the class and three are selected for each episode. Small production teams are formed within the class, and these teams are responsible for scheduling, filming and editing their segments with their artist subjects.“We hope for a positive contribution to local art by way of exhibition and audience interest. By getting the word out about local artists, the goal is to raise awareness in the audience while bringing notoriety to artists around the state.” You Might Like ‘WAX’ MUSEUM Jimmy Ramage listened intently as India Lee told about Dorothy Height’s involvement in the Civil Rights movement.

Not only is he skilled at his scrap-iron sculptures, he’s also quite skilled at paintings and pottery — the pottery which we call lawyer-pots because of their judicially-based themes.”White said Godwin gave the visiting university students an extensive overview of his life spanning from playing basketball in high school, his entry in to the arts, background of some of his artwork and ventures into the judicial system to how he cares for his elderly mother and his extreme disdain of corn-syrup.Corrao said the visit with Godwin was an opportunity for the students to meet a practicing artist and learn more about his art and about what it’s like to be an artist in Alabama.“The aim of ‘Alabama Art Seen,’ is to grow the excitement and investment in the arts here in Alabama,” Corrao said. “I hope that the audience is exposed to different artists and art forms that they didn’t know existed here in Alabama, and more importantly that the show inspires them to seek out more of these artists and art forms. Getting involved either creatively or as a supportive member of the arts community is a tremendously rewarding experience.” The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies…last_img read more
