Black Friday is upon us again. Each year, the shopping extravaganza seems to get bigger and louder. Shoppers search out the biggest bargains. Retailers report huge demand. It seems like there must be some well performing Black Friday shares.But what Black Friday winners might make good shares?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…Why busy shops aren’t always good for retailersInstore and online, Black Friday is increasingly one of the busiest days of the calendar for retailers. With heavy advertising and deep promotions, the tills should be ringing frequently. It is also an opportunity to acquire new customers.But actually that isn’t necessarily good for retailers. After all, discounts cut into their profit margins. Some of the sales are clearly at a loss. On top of that, after customers load up on cheap buys on Black Friday, there is less need for them to shop again any time soon. So, when I look at Black Friday shares, I ask myself which retailers are managing to build long-term, profitable relationships with shoppers. I think that will be a more rewarding commercial strategy than a one-off “pile them high, sell ‘em cheap” approach.So when it comes to Black Friday, I don’t see any extra value in shares in the big retailers like Tesco or Morrison’s. Instead, I look for companies who benefit from a shopping surge without cutting prices.Black Friday shares I would consider buyingOne such set of Black Friday winners is the logistics companies who handle the shipping of products bought online. They aren’t discounting to get shoppers to buy their products. Instead, they are making money on every item shipped as orders fly out the door. Such a company is Clipper Logistics. It has growing operations in Germany but its main market is the UK. Its deep, multi-year relationships with clients such as Zara and ASOS means that Black Friday likely produces a sales boon. Last year, e-commerce fulfilment grew at 18%.Another group of Black Friday winners are media companies who derive revenue from the flurry of additional advertising companies place around Black Friday. For example, Daily Mail has a sizeable online business. Last year, the company’s iconic Mail Online website recorded a 17% increase in revenue from digital ads. Online advertising for events such as Black Friday looks set to grow year after year, in my opinion.Finally I would also consider as Black Friday shares retailers that can benefit from the general surge in buying without getting into deep discounting itself. I think Games Workshop fits that description well. Its customers are motivated by its unique range of products, not by cheap pricing. They often get deeply engaged with gaming products. That means the company can benefit from years or even decades of repeat custom, not just a one-off bargain buy.Black Friday offers bargains in store – but also in the stock market. It is a good time to find out more about the sorts of companies that do well from it. Beyond the biggest retailers, there are some names I find attractive. Now I need to go shopping!

Zee Ngwenya’s great try saving tackles against Leinster

first_imgThursday May 2, 2013 Zee Ngwenya’s great try saving tackles against Leinster Earlier this week we featured a great try saving tackle from Tim Nanai-Williams, but he wasn’t the only one putting in a massive effort at the weekend. Zee Ngwenya, the USA Eagles and Biarritz flyer, made two great tackles during defeat to Leinster at the RDS. The Irish powerhouses reached the Amlin Challenge Cup final with a convincing 44-16 victory, booking themselves a meeting with Stade Francais in the final in Dublin on May 17th.Zee Ngwenya, the speedster who first came to prominence at the 2007 Rugby World Cup, made two great try-saving tackles during the match, first on Sexton as he chased back and got under the ball to prevent a try, and then on Ian Madigan.Madigan intecepted and ran the eighty odd metres before being brought down just five out.As with Nanai-Williams, Ngwenya was penalised however, and received a yellow card that swung things truly in Leinster’s favour. They went on to score five tries in total.It was a game that produced few chances for the Zimbabwean born winger, but it was good to see such a great effort from a player that is not only lightning fast, but clearly always committed too.Highlights: You can view longer highlights from the match on page two hereFull highlights of Leinster vs Biarritz in the Amlin Challenge Cup Semi Final at the RDS(excuse the poor quality) Time: 11:51Credit: leinsterrugbytvADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Góes case prompts call for decriminalization

first_img Reports Receive email alerts BrazilAmericas Organisation BrazilAmericas Reporters Without Borders hopes that, in a decision due shortly, Brazil’s Federal Supreme Court will overturn journalist José Cristian Góes’ criminal defamation conviction over a fictional tale about political corruption that he posted on his blog in May 2012, for which he received an initial jail sentence.Góes was sentenced on 4 July 2013 to seven months and 16 days in prison – a sentence that was immediately commuted to community service. He was also ordered to pay 25,000 reais (7,200 euros) in damages and 5,000 reais (1,440 euros) in costs.Entitled “Me, the colonel in me,” the story criticized the clientelist methods used by those in positions of power and influence at the local level in Brazil, where they are known as “colonels.” The story was told in the first person by an imaginary “colonel” who complained about the current democracy. No names, dates, places or public positions were identified.Edson Ulisses, the vice-president of the high court in Aracaju, the capital of the northeastern state of Sergipe, nonetheless bought civil and criminal proceedings against Góes, claiming that story was insulting.“Sentencing José Cristian Góes to a jail term in 2013, even if it was commuted to community service, was a slap in the face for freedom of information and opinion,” said Claire San Filippo, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Americas desk.“We hope that the Federal Supreme Court will now correct this aberration and send an encouraging signal to Brazil’s journalists. We also urge the Brazilian authorities to decriminalize media offenses, because the possibility of criminal charges has a strong deterrent impact on freedom of information.”Ever since the repeal in 2009 of a 1967 media law inherited from the military dictatorship, journalists have often been the victims of abusive judicial proceedings on charges of insult or defamation, especially at the local level. Courts are also showing a growing readiness to use preventive censorship, especially against websites.Brazil is ranked 99th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. to go further Follow the news on Brazil News May 13, 2021 Find out more Newscenter_img RSF_en Alarm after two journalists murdered in Brazil 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies Help by sharing this information March 23, 2015 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Góes case prompts call for decriminalization April 27, 2021 Find out more News April 15, 2021 Find out more RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin Americalast_img read more

Gun violence plagues Detroit family that’s lost 2 children in 8 months

first_imgCourtesy Cleo Strickland(DETROIT) — A family in Detroit spent Thanksgiving Day mourning not one but two children shot and killed this year. Paris Strickland was sitting behind the wheel of a 2016 Chevy Malibu near the intersection of Fenkell Avenue and Artesian Street with a 26-year-old man when shots were fired into the car on Tuesday evening, police said.The 24-year-old woman died after suffering multiple gunshot wounds, according to a preliminary report from the Detroit Police Department.“That was my baby,” Malcolm Strickland told ABC News over the phone on Thursday. “I’m feeling really terrible right now.”The circumstances surrounding the shooting are still being investigated, police said, but Malcolm Strickland said it was a drive-by shooting and his daughter, who was six months pregnant, wasn’t the intended target.The man that was in the car with Paris Strickland was taken to a local hospital and last listed in stable condition, police said.Malcolm Strickland said he was looking forward to seeing his youngest child become a first-time mother, and she was excited about starting a new job with General Motors on Monday.“That’s what our last conversation was about, her starting the new job. She worked for the city of Detroit as a bus driver … she didn’t deserve this,” Malcolm Strickland said.Paris Strickland was expecting to have a son, her family confirmed to ABC News.“She was such a good kid, hardworking and was so funny,” said Malcolm Strickland, who chuckled at a recent Facebook post his daughter made about only wanting to have ham on Thanksgiving.Malcolm Strickland and his wife want the person responsible for their daughter’s murder to get arrested and prosecuted just like their son’s alleged killer.The Strickland family lost 28-year-old Channing Strickland to gun violence on March 2, 2019.“It’s a shame that the same thing that happened with her brother happened to her,” Malcolm Strickland said. “I go to every court appearance. I want to make sure he gets exactly what he deserve. … I will do the same for Paris when they catch whoever did this to her.”Last August, the Stricklands were devastated when their granddaughter, Autumn Young, was tragically killed in a go-kart accident.The 4-year-old died after her father, Ollante Arvell Young, was drunkenly driving the one-seated vehicle and crashed into a parked car. Young pleaded guilty and was sentenced earlier this year to three to 10 years in prison, prosecutors said.Detroit police are asking if anyone has any information pertaining to Paris Strickland’s case to please call 313-596-2660 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.

Leicester survey reveals untapped pool of talent

first_imgLeicester survey reveals untapped pool of talentOn 12 Jun 2001 in Personnel Today Asylum-seekers are highly skilled potential employees, claims innovativeresearch by the National Organisation for Adult Learning in Leicester. The report shows that 85 per cent of the 121 asylum-seekers surveyed in thecity speak more than one language and have qualifications ranging from O-levelequivalents and vocational diplomas to first and higher degrees. It also shows that 80 per cent of asylum-seekers were in paid employmentbefore they came to the UK. Most of these were in skilled occupations,including doctors, teachers, business managers and electricians. One of those highlighted was a teacher from Zimbabwe who had both assistedyoung people in setting up craft businesses to pay their way through collegeand helped run an HIV and Aids education service in rural areas. Sue Waddington, European development officer of the National Organisationfor Adult Learning and co-author of the report, hopes the research will dispelsome of the myths that hinder informed debate. She said, “This research demonstrates the wealth of untapped talentamong asylum-seekers in Leicester. The next step is to take action to enableasylum-seekers, whether they remain in the UK or return to their countries oforigin, to use and develop their skills.” She added, “We know from the Leicester sample that asylum-seekers wantto contribute to the labour market and wider society.” A number of barriers to the employment of asylum-seekers were highlighted inthe survey. Specialist careers advice for asylum-seekers is patchy and they arenot eligible for government-funded training, even if they have been in the UKfor six months. Deng Yai, employment policy adviser of the Refugee Council, said, “Thisresearch confirms asylum-seekers are as highly qualified as we expected.” Karen Higginbottom Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos.
