The UK stock market has started the week with a sharp fall. News about a new Covid-19 mutation, foreign travel bans, and Brexit negotiations combined to deal a blow to UK shares. However, a weakened stock market can provide a buying opportunity. There are some FTSE fallers today I’d consider buying now, while their prices are depressed.I’d buy UK shares in the transport sectorTransport shares were hard hit. For example, FTSE 250 constituent National Express fell around 7%. But the underlying business is strong. It has proven to be well-run this year, and has already staged a steady recovery since its lows earlier in 2020. But I think it has further fuel in the tank. With its price fall today, I see a buying opportunity.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…Similarly, British Airways parent IAG was one of the most notable FTSE fallers today. Its UK shares fell around 11% on Monday morning. Clearly a flight ban imposed by many countries is bad news for the aviation group. However, it owns non-British airlines such as Iberia and Aer Lingus. I also don’t expect that the latest travel ban will be a long-term measure. So the IAG share price pullback could be a buying opportunity, in my opinion.FTSE fallers today include energy majorsIn broad-based market selling, international energy groups such as BP and Shell followed the board sharply lower. But I see little immediate impact on them from the latest round of headlines. They look oversold to me.BP has had a tough year, like many oil multinationals. But it had started to recover. From a point below 200p last month, it had already increased by a quarter. With oil prices increasing and world trade recovering, the share price has been on an upwards trajectory in recent weeks. Being one of the FTSE fallers provides a buying opportunity for BP shares, in my opinion.I’d buy quality stocks to buy and holdI keep an eye on a number of shares I like in case a market tumble like today’s provides a buying opportunity.For example, I hold the general insurer Legal and General. I like its reliable income stream, which translates into a good dividend yield. Its business shouldn’t be much affected by a travel ban, but it was one of the bigger FTSE fallers today, losing over 6% of its value in morning trading. I see that as an opportunity to buy shares in a stable, quality company with attractive yield.Similarly, shares in high street bank Lloyds tumbled on Monday. But I don’t see significant changes to the prospects for the company’s continued recovery. I expect the bank may restart dividends in 2021, so this latest fall provides a chance to get in at a lower price. I am considering starting a position before the end of December.In fact, Monday’s market fall overall has led me to sit back and think about how best to position my portfolio for 2021. I think a few well-informed choices in a falling market now could reward me handsomely in 2021.

They want to know if it will be in time to make payments on next year’s inputs.”  For livestock producers, it is making sure there is enough funds for the higher feed bills they are facing.

The win gave TCU its first postseason tournament title.TCU now has the NIT trophy and will bring it back to Fort Worth. pic.twitter.com/BlcY5zj2eK— TCU 360 Sports (@TCU360Sports) March 31, 2017TCU forward Vladimir Brodziansky set the tone early, scoring the game’s first basket on a midrange jumper from the left elbow and then blocking center Ben Lammers, the ACC Defensive Player of the Year and second-leading scorer, on the other end to force a turnover. Brodziansky finished the game with 18 points and six rebounds.Five minutes passed before the Yellow Jackets were able to hit on a shot from the field, by which time the Horned Frogs already built a 13 point lead, 16-3.“No question, our defense led to our offense, and that’s what we want to be,” TCU head coach Jamie Dixon said. “We got turnovers; we got stops; we got transition the other way, and we’ve been pretty good in transition, and we’re getting better at it, but the defense starts, no question.”With just under 12 minutes left in the first half, Georgia Tech began to mount a climb back into the game, scoring ten consecutive points and trimming TCU’s lead to just 21-15.But, the Horned Frogs countered the run with an emphatic JD Miller and-one layup and an Alex Robinson Jr. floater in the one to push the TCU back up 11, 26-15, with 6:26 left in the first half.TCU was up 38-27 at halftime and led the Yellow Jackets in nearly every statistic after the first 20 minutes except for three-point shooting.The Horned Frogs went on another commanding 17-0 run from the 11:17 mark until only 2:24 remained to take a 30-point lead, 79-49.

Human rights activists prosecuted for “publishing illegally”

first_img March 8, 2021 Find out more September 16, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Human rights activists prosecuted for “publishing illegally” February 3, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders and the Syrian Human Rights Association (ADHS) called today on Syrian justice minister Nabil al-Khatib to immediately drop charges against four Syrian human rights activists, including the Association’s 72-year-old president, Haissam Maleh, for distributing an “illegal” publication.”The Syrian regime is not above the law, especially not where its association agreements with the European Union, which guarantee freedom of expression, are concerned,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard. “Syrian civil society has many intellectuals, lawyers and human rights activists who must be allowed to join together to publish a magazine.” Lawyer Haissam Maleh, businessman Farouk al-Homsi (brother of opposition member of parliament Maamoun al-Homsi, who has been jailed for five years) and ADHS vice-president Mohammed Kheir Beik have been charged with “introducing and distributing within Syria an illegal publication,” the ADHS’s magazine, Tayyarat (“currents” in Arabic). Summonses were recently issued against the three, some of whom may be abroad. The fourth man charged, Ghassoud al-Malla, is the Syrian driver of the van that brought copies of the magazine into the country from neighbouring Lebanon. He is thought to have been jailed in Syria nearly four months ago.The ADHS, formed in July last year by several intellectuals and not officially authorised in Syria, distributed the first issue of its magazine this July. A copy was sent to President Bashar el-Assad and the ADHS is applying for the magazine’s publication in Syria to be authorised.Maleh, who is abroad having medical treatment, is accused of “spreading false information, belonging to a political association with ties to foreign parties and distributing publications inciting people to religious dissent and harming the nation,” the ADHS said.Maleh had legally defended 10 regime opponents arrested last year in what was seen as the end of the “Damascus spring” noted with the president’s succession to his late father two years ago. The 10, who include the well-known Riad Turk, have since been jailed for between two and 10 years each, some last month.

Early-Stage Mortgage Delinquencies Dropped in Q4 2017

first_img According to the MBA’s Fourth Quarter 2017 National Delinquency Survey, general downward trends for mortgage delinquencies continued as 2017 wrapped up, even after the impact of a historically damaging hurricane season.”The 30-day delinquency rate actually dropped by 15 basis points in the fourth quarter of 2017, as homeowners affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria either became current on their payments or moved to later stages of delinquency,” said Marina Walsh, MBA’s Vice President of Industry Analysis. “However, while the earliest-stage delinquency rate dropped, the 60-day and 90-day delinquency rates did increase in the fourth quarter of 2017. Despite the hurricanes and these quarter-over-quarter results, most states are seeing overall mortgage delinquency rates at lower levels than a year ago.”According to the MBA survey, the percentage of loans in the foreclosure process at the end of the fourth quarter was 1.19 percent. This placed Q4 2017 down 34 basis points year-over-year, and down 4 basis points from Q3.Serious delinquency rates, covering loans that are 90 days or more overdue or actively in the process of foreclosure, increased 39 basis points between Q3 and Q4, hitting 2.91 percent for Q4 2017. However, that total is still 22 basis points lower than in Q4 2016.On a seasonally adjusted basis, however, mortgage delinquency rates did increase across all types of loans, including FHA, VA, and conventional.According to the latest Mortgage Monitor Report from the Data and Analytics Division of Black Knight, Inc., mortgage delinquencies hit a 23-month high as 2017 wrapped up, surging by 164,000 year-over-year. However, outside of hurricane-affected areas, Black Knight reported that the national mortgage delinquency rate was actually 11 percent below long-term norms. In these same areas, the total number of past-due or in-foreclosure homes dropped by more than 140,000 as December 2017 wrapped up.Last year also saw the fewest foreclosure starts nationwide of any year since 2000, with the annual total sitting at 649,000.

Breaking- Narada Case: Acting Chief Justice Constitutes 5 Judges’ Bench, Calcutta HC To Hear Case On Arrest Of TMC Leaders On May 24

first_imgTop StoriesBreaking- Narada Case: Acting Chief Justice Constitutes 5 Judges’ Bench, Calcutta HC To Hear Case On Arrest Of TMC Leaders On May 24 Sparsh Upadhyay21 May 2021 6:53 AMShare This – xHours after the Calcutta High Court referred the case pertaining to bail of four Trinamool Congress leaders, who have been in custody since May 17 since their arrest by the CBI in the Narada Scam Case, to a larger Bench, the Acting Chief Justice of Calcutta High Court Justice Rajesh Bindal has constituted 5 Judges’ Bench to hear the matter.The Five Judges’ Bench will consist of the Chief Justice (Acting) Rajesh Bindal, Justice I.P. Mukerji, Justice Harish Tandon, Justice Soumen Sen, and Justice Arijit Banerjee, and the Matter would be heard on May 24 (Monday) at 11 AM.Advertisement #BREAKING: #CalcuttaHighCourt to hear #NaradaScam matter on May 24 (Monday).Chief Justice (Acting) constitutes Five Judges’ Bench consisting of the Chief Justice (Acting), Justice I.P.Mukerji, the Hon’ble Justice Harish Tandon, Justice Soumen Sen, and Justice Arijit Banerjee. pic.twitter.com/U0xMnYJluc— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) May 21, 2021While referring the matter to a larger Bench, in the meanwhile, the division bench today ordered that the four leaders— Ministers Firhad Hakim and Subrata Mukherjee, MLA Madan Mitra, and Sovan Chatterjee- be kept in house arrest and all medical amenities will be given to them.Advertisement Court’s Order todayA Division Bench of Acting Chief Justice Rajesh Bindal and Justice Arijit Banerjee which heard the matter at length on Wednesday today gave conflicting opinions.Whereas Justice Arijit Banerjee has passed an order allowing interim bail, ACJ Bindal has disagreed and said that the four arrested TMC leaders must be kept in house arrest. In view of the split, the matter has been referred to a larger bench.Advertisement Advertisement Significantly, since two of the arrested persons are Ministers in the newly-elected State Government and one of them is an MLA, the Court has permitted them to access files and meet officials through videoconferencing while under house arrest, to discharge their functions.The Bench declined the requests made by the TMC leaders’ counsels for their release on interim bail until the matter is heard by a larger Bench. However, it has allowed the leaders to access files, meet officials but only through VC. “Whatever work they are doing for the public, let it continue,” it said.Advertisement Advertisement Advertisement The bench also rejected the request made by the CBI to stay the present order.Court’s proceedingsSenior Advocate Dr Abhishek Manu Singhvi, appearing for the TMC leaders, expressed his shock at the order as it has been passed mid-way of the hearing. He urged that the leaders be released on interim bail till the matter is heard by the larger bench, which should be constituted today itself.”The interim situation should be freedom. These are Ministers, MLAs. There is no possibility of flight risk. There has been no slightest allegation of them not cooperating with investigation,” he submitted.To this, Justice Banerjee replied :”One of the members of the bench thought it fit to grant interim bail. The other member of the bench did not agree. So, this point of interim bail has to be considered by the larger bench. In the meantime, considering the pandemic situation, house arrest has been given.”However, Singhvi pointed out that he made the interim bail plea at 4.30 pm on Wednesday when the court was about to rise; and the arguments were not complete. If the choice is between full arrest and house arrest, it will be house arrest. But if the choice is between freedom and house-arrest, it will be freedom, he said.He added that in case of house arrest, Ministers should also be given access to the files related to COVID work, vaccination, etc.Senior Advocate Kalyan Bandopadhyaya, who represented the leaders before the Trial Court, also submitted that the leaders’ absence is affecting Covid-related work. He stated that Firhad Hakim is working 24*7 for COVID vaccination-related matters and his presence is necessary for COVID work in Kolkata. “So necessary to give him access to files and permit him to meet officials,” he urged. He further pressed that the larger bench be constituted urgently and should hear the matter today at 2 PM itself, in the same spirit the High Court took up CBI’s urgent plea against Trial Court order on May 17 at 5.30 PM.Senior Advocate Sidharth Luthra, representing Sovan Chatterjee, submitted that the investigation is over and there is no requirement of custody. “Under what provision the custody will be given? Section 167?” he asked. “This order was passed since interim bail plea was raised. Now it is surprising you are raising issues on merits after order,” ACJ Bindal said.Significantly, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta appearing for CBI also prayed for stay of the house arrest order.He submitted that the Union has reservations about the Supreme Court judgment in Gautam Navalakha case, which has been relied on by the High Court to allow the house arrest of the TMC leaders. The request was however declined. Complete minute-by-minute account of the hearing may be read here.Background of the matterOn May 17, the bench had stayed the bail granted by the Special CBI Court at Kolkata to four Trinamool Congress leaders – Firhad Hakim, Madan Mitra, Subrata Mukherjee and Sovan Chatterjee – who were arrested dramatically by CBI on May 17.The bench passed the stay order after a dramatic late-night hearing held on the basis of a letter sent by the CBI seeking transfer of the case to the High Court citing “unprecedented mob pressure” exerted on the lower court by the mass protests led by Chief Minister and the Law Minister against the arrests of the TMC leaders.On the next day, the TMC leaders filed applications seeking recall of the stay order on the ground that it was passed without issuing notice to them.On May 19, the bench had heard Solicitor General Tushar Mehta for the CBI, and Senior Advocates Dr Abhishek Manu Singhvi and Sidharth Luthra for the arrested TMC leaders. Singhvi and Luthra had prayed for interim bail on the ground that the accused are aged persons having comorbidities. The bench was told that three of the arrested persons were shifted to hospital and one of them, Sovan Chatterjee continued to be in jail.Reports of hearing on May 19 :’Is Protesting In Streets The Way To Respond When Matter Is Considered By Court?’ : Calcutta HC Asks In Narada Case Against Trinamool Leaders’Orchestrated Attempt To Frustrate Justice & Stop CBI From Discharging Its Functions’: SG Tushar Mehta Tells Calcutta High Court in Narada Scam CasePeaceful Protests Permissible In Democracy Even If Court Is Considering The Issue : Dr. Singhvi In Calcutta High CourtNarada Case- “Do You Deny CM Sitting In Dharna In Front Of CBI Office”?
