Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Keeping an eye on what professional portfolio managers are doing is a smart move. Not only can it help you identify investment opportunities, but it can also help you avoid risks.With that in mind, I want to highlight the findings from Bank of America’s (BoA) July Global Fund Manager Survey. This is a monthly survey that canvasses the views of around 200 institutional, mutual, and hedge fund managers around the world. Here’s a look at where top portfolio managers are putting their money right now.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…The pros are investing in these sectorsIn terms of sectors, the two most popular among those surveyed were Healthcare and Technology. Meanwhile, the most out-of-favour sectors with portfolio managers were Energy, Banks, and Industrials.It’s not hard to see why the pros are investing in Healthcare and Technology right now.As I explained recently, Healthcare has a number of things going for it at the moment. For starters, it’s leading the fight against Covid-19. Any company that successfully creates a vaccine (both AstraZeneca and GlaxoSmithKline are engaged in Covid-19 vaccine development) is likely to do very well.Secondly, Healthcare is a highly resilient sector. That makes it attractive in the current economic climate. Third, Healthcare looks set for strong growth in the long run due to the world’s ageing population.The Technology sector also has a lot going for it right now. It’s technology that’s helping us work from home, shop from home, and communicate with friends and family throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.Going forward, the tech sector is likely to continue growing at a rapid rate as technology continues to disrupt industries. If you’re looking to invest in the Technology sector, you’ll find plenty of opportunities on the London Stock Exchange.This is what keeps portfolio managers awake at nightOn the risk side, the fund managers surveyed said a second wave of Covid-19 was one of the main investment risks on the horizon. Over 50% of respondents ranked this as the top risk. The upcoming US presidential election was another risk on the minds of the pros.Meanwhile, around three out of four fund managers said US technology/work-from-home stocks are the most ‘crowded’ trades at the moment. That was the highest reading in the survey’s history, which is certainly something to keep in mind. Around 70% of those surveyed also said that parts of the stock market were overvalued.It’s worth pointing out that cash levels among fund managers reached 4.9% in July, up from 4.7% in June. This suggests the pros want to have plenty of cash on the sidelines so that they can take advantage of investment opportunities if there’s another stock market crash.The best investment opportunities?All in all, there were certainly some interesting takeaways from this month’s BoA fund manager survey. One key takeaway was that the pros believe the Technology and Healthcare sectors offer the best investment opportunities at present.

Declaración de Cuba: La pandemia demuestra la necesidad de cooperación

first_imgMinisterio de Relaciones Exteriores de CubaLa necesidad de cooperaciónEl impacto de la COVID19 puede medirse ya y podrá evaluarse en el futuro por la impresionante cantidad de personas infectadas, por las cifras inaceptables de muertes, por el daño indiscutible a la economía mundial, a la producción, el comercio, el empleo y los ingresos personales de millones de personas.  Es una crisis que rebasa con creces el ámbito sanitario.La pandemia llega y se propaga en un escenario previamente caracterizado por la abrumadora desigualdad económica y social entre y dentro de las naciones, con flujos migratorios y de refugiados sin precedentes; en el que la xenofobia y la discriminación racial vuelven a aflorar; y en el que los impresionantes avances de la ciencia y la tecnología, particularmente en materia de salud, se concentran cada vez más en el negocio farmacéutico y la comercialización de la medicina, en vez de dirigirse a asegurar el bienestar y la vida saludable de las mayorías.Llega a un mundo lastrado por patrones de producción y consumo que se sabe son insostenibles e incompatibles con la condición agotable de los recursos naturales de los que depende la vida en el planeta, particularmente en los países más industrializados y entre las élites de los países en desarrollo.Antes de que se identificara al primer enfermo, había 820 millones de personas hambrientas en el mundo, 2 mil 200 millones sin servicios de agua potable, 4 mil 200 millones sin servicios de saneamiento gestionados de forma segura y 3 mil millones sin instalaciones básicas para el lavado de las manos.Ese escenario resulta más inadmisible cuando se conoce que a nivel global se emplean al año unos 618 mil 700 millones de dólares estadounidenses solo en publicidad, junto a un billón 8 mil millones de dólares estadounidenses en gasto militar y de armamentos, que resultan totalmente inútiles para combatir la amenaza de la COVID19, con sus decenas de miles de muertes.El virus no discrimina entre unos y otros. No lo hace entre ricos y pobres, pero sus efectos devastadores se multiplican allí donde están los más vulnerables, los de menos ingresos, en el mundo pobre y subdesarrollado, en los bolsones de pobreza de las grandes urbes industrializadas. Se siente con especial impacto ahí donde las políticas neoliberales y de reducción de los gastos sociales han limitado la capacidad del Estado en la gestión pública.Cobra mayores víctimas donde se han recortado los presupuestos gubernamentales dedicados a la salud pública.  Provoca mayor daño económico donde el Estado tiene pocas posibilidades o carece de opciones para salir al rescate de quienes pierden el empleo, cierran sus negocios y sufren la reducción dramática o el fin de sus fuentes de ingresos personales y familiares. En los países más desarrollados, produce más muertes entre los pobres, los inmigrantes y, específicamente en Estados Unidos, entre los afroamericanos y los latinos.Como agravante, la comunidad internacional afronta esta amenaza global en momentos en que la mayor potencia militar, económica, tecnológica y comunicacional del planeta despliega una política exterior dirigida a atizar y promover los conflictos, las divisiones, el chauvinismo y posiciones supremacistas y racistas.En instantes en que enfrentar globalmente la pandemia requiere impulsar la cooperación y estimular el importante papel de las organizaciones internacionales, particularmente la Organización de las Naciones Unidas (ONU) y la Organización Mundial de la Salud (OMS), el actual gobierno de los Estados Unidos ataca al multilateralismo y busca descalificar el reconocido liderazgo de la OMS. Continúa, además, en su mezquina intención de aprovechar el momento para imponer su dominación y agredir a países con cuyos gobiernos tiene discrepancias.Son ejemplos ilustrativos las recientes y graves amenazas militares contra la República Bolivariana de Venezuela y la proclamación anteayer, por parte del presidente de los Estados Unidos, del Día y la Semana Panamericanos del 14 al 18 de abril, acompañada de declaraciones neocoloniales e inspiradas en la Doctrina Monroe contra Venezuela, Nicaragua y Cuba, en recordación de la Conferencia Panamericana, condenada hace 130 años por José Martí. Por esos mismos días, se produjeron, en 1961, los combates de Playa Girón.Otro ejemplo es el ataque inmoral y persistente contra el esfuerzo cubano de brindar solidaridad a aquellos países que han solicitado cooperación para enfrentar la COVID19. En vez de dedicarse a promover la cooperación y estimular una respuesta conjunta, altos funcionarios del Departamento de Estado de ese país dedican su tiempo a emitir declaraciones de amenaza contra aquellos gobiernos que, ante el drama de la pandemia, optan soberanamente por solicitar ayuda a Cuba.Estados Unidos comete un crimen y lo saben sus funcionarios cuando, al atacar en medio de una pandemia la cooperación internacional que brinda Cuba, se propone privar a millones de personas del derecho humano universal a los servicios de salud.La dimensión de la actual crisis nos obliga a cooperar y a practicar la solidaridad, incluso reconociendo diferencias políticas. El virus no respeta fronteras ni ideologías. Amenaza la vida de todos y es de todos la responsabilidad de enfrentarlo.  Ningún país debería asumir que es suficientemente grande, rico o poderoso para defenderse por sí solo, en aislamiento y desconociendo los esfuerzos y las necesidades de los demás.Es urgente compartir y ofrecer información de valor y confiable.Hay que dar los pasos que permitan coordinar la producción y distribución de equipamiento médico, medios de protección y medicinas, con un sentido de justicia. Aquellos países con mayor disponibilidad de recursos deben compartir con los más afectados y con los que llegan a la pandemia menos preparados.Con ese enfoque se trabaja desde Cuba. Con él se intenta aportar la humilde contribución de una nación pequeña, con escasas riquezas naturales y sometidas a un largo y brutal bloqueo económico.  Hemos podido acumular durante décadas experiencia en el desarrollo de la cooperación internacional en materia de salud, reconocida generosamente por la Organización Mundial de la Salud y nuestras contrapartes.En las últimas semanas, hemos respondido a solicitudes de cooperación sin detenernos a evaluar coincidencias políticas o ventajas económicas.  Hasta el momento, se han destinado 21 brigadas de profesionales de la salud para sumarse al esfuerzo nacional y local de 20 países,   que se añaden o refuerzan a las brigadas de colaboración médica en 60 naciones, que se han incorporado al esfuerzo de combatir esta enfermedad en donde ya prestaban servicios.También hemos compartido algunos de los medicamentos producidos por la isla que, según nuestra práctica, tienen eficacia probada en la prevención o el tratamiento de la enfermedad.  Adicionalmente, nuestro personal médico ha participado desde Cuba y vía teleconferencias en consultas y debates sobre tratamientos específicos para pacientes o grupos particulares de estos en varios países.Ese esfuerzo se lleva a cabo sin descuidar la responsabilidad de proteger a la población cubana, lo cual se cumple con rigor pese a las inmensas limitaciones que impone el bloqueo económico, comercial y financiero de los Estados Unidos.  Todo el que desee conocer, encontrará los datos que sustentan esta afirmación, pues son públicos.  Todo el que tenga un ápice de decencia, comprenderá que el bloqueo plantea a Cuba una presión extraordinaria para garantizar los insumos materiales y los equipos que sostienen el sistema de salud pública y las condiciones específicas para enfrentar esta pandemia.Un ejemplo reciente fue el de un cargamento de ayuda procedente de China que no pudo trasladarse a Cuba porque la empresa transportista alegó que el bloqueo económico de los Estados Unidos se lo impedía.  Frente a él, altos funcionarios del Departamento de Estado han tenido la desvergüenza de declarar que los Estados Unidos sí exportan a Cuba tanto medicinas como equipos médicos.  No son capaces, sin embargo, de respaldar esas falsedades con un solo ejemplo de alguna transacción comercial entre los dos países.Es sabido y está más que fundamentado que el bloqueo económico es el principal obstáculo para el desarrollo de Cuba, para la prosperidad del país y para el bienestar de los cubanos.  Esa dura realidad, que se debe única y exclusivamente a la empecinada y agresiva conducta del gobierno de los Estados Unidos, no nos impide ofrecer nuestra ayuda solidaria.  No la negamos a nadie, ni siquiera a ese país que tanto daño nos provoca, si fuera el caso.Cuba tiene el convencimiento de que el momento reclama cooperación y solidaridad.  Sostiene que un esfuerzo internacional y políticamente desprejuiciado para desarrollar y compartir la investigación científica y para intercambiar las experiencias de diversos países en la labor preventiva, la protección de los más vulnerables y las prácticas de conducta social, ayudará a acortar la duración de la pandemia y a reducir el ritmo de las pérdidas de vidas.  Cree firmemente que el papel y el liderazgo de las Naciones Unidas y de la Organización Mundial de la Salud son imprescindibles.La expansión viral se detendrá eventualmente, más rápido y con menos costo, si actuamos de conjunto.Quedará entonces la crisis económica y social que viene provocando a su paso y cuyas dimensiones nadie es capaz de vaticinar con certeza.No puede esperarse a ese momento para aunar voluntades en aras de superar los grandes problemas y amenazas que encontraremos y responder a los que arrastramos desde antes que la pandemia comenzara a cobrar las primeras vidas.Si no se garantiza para los países en desarrollo el acceso a la tecnología que suele concentrarse en los países más industrializados, incluyendo especialmente en el ámbito de la salud, y si estos no se disponen a compartir sin restricciones y egoísmos los avances de la ciencia y sus productos, la inmensa mayoría de la población del planeta quedará tan o más expuesta que hoy, en un mundo cada vez más interconectado.Si no se eliminan las medidas económicas coercitivas motivadas por razones políticas contra países en desarrollo y si a estos no se les exonera la agobiante e impagable deuda externa y se les libra del tutelaje despiadado de las organizaciones financieras internacionales, no se podrá confiar en la ilusión de que habrá una mejor capacidad de respuesta a las desigualdades económicas y sociales que, aun sin pandemia, matan cada año a millones, sin discriminar niños, mujeres o ancianos.La amenaza a la paz y la seguridad internacional es real y las agresiones constantes contra determinados países la agravan.Es muy difícil esperar que el fin eventual de la pandemia conducirá a un mundo más justo, más seguro y más decente si la comunidad internacional, representada por los gobiernos de cada país, no se apresura desde ahora a conciliar y adoptar decisiones que hasta el momento han demostrado ser tercamente evasivas.Quedará también la incertidumbre sobre cuán preparada estará la humanidad para la próxima pandemia.Aún es tiempo de actuar y de movilizar la voluntad de los que hoy tienen la responsabilidad de hacerlo.  Si se deja para las futuras generaciones, podrá ser demasiado tarde.La Habana, 16 de abril de 2020FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare

ECISD to discuss Ector College Prep

first_img Twitter EducationECISDLocal News Pinterest Facebook The Ector County Independent School District Board of Trustees will hear several report items at their 6 p.m. workshop meeting Tuesday. The gathering will be in the first-floor board room of the administration building, 802 N. Sam Houston Ave. All visitors are required to stop at the front desk, have their temperature taken and answer screening questions prior to accessing the building. All visitors are also required to wear a face mask. A presentation and discussion of a middle school turnaround partner, strategic plan quarterly update, development office presentation and legislative update are among the items trustees will hear. Although the middle school is not specified in the agenda, ECISD Communications Officer Mike Adkins and Assistant Superintendent of Student and School Support Alicia Syverson said in separate text messages that the board will be discussing Ector College Prep Success Academy. During its Jan. 19 board meeting, trustees voted 6-1 to non-renew its contract with the Ector Success Academy Network. Board member Carol Gregg dissented. Senate Bill 1882, passed by the Texas Legislature in 2017, provides incentives for districts to contract to partner with an open-enrollment charter school, institutions of higher education, nonprofits, or government entities, the Texas Education Agency website says. Ector was in its fifth year of improvement required under state accountability standards. If it didn’t come off the list, it could have faced closure or the Texas Education Commissioner could appoint a board of managers over the whole district. ECISD partnered with CEO/Superintendent Robert Bleisch’s Ector Success Academy Network as a way to stay sanctions from the Texas Education Agency for two years. In accordance with law, the board “shall renew a charter performance contract only if the board finds that the campus charter has substantially fulfilled its obligations and met the performance standards in the contract and applicable law.” “From Tuesday night’s (Jan. 19) board presentation: the campus met 6 of 24 academic goals set out in the Performance Agreement from 2018-2020; failed to meet generally accepted accounting standards for fiscal management; did not disclose a conflict of interest for services provided by the Charter Governing Board’s President in June 2020, until November 2020. Per the agreement, notice of non-renewal must be given by the ECISD Board of Trustees by the last Friday of January,” the recap said.

The plea also seeks implement of the recommendations of Law Commission Report No-277 on Miscarriage of Justice. The Bench headed by justice UU Lalit has also tagged another petition filed by BJP leader Kapil Mishra, seeking similar directions. Mishra has urged the Supreme Court to issue directions to the Centre to make a mechanism to take strict action and prosecute the fake complainants and pay adequate compensation to the victims of wrongful prosecutions. Both the petitions were filed after the case of Vishnu Tiwari came to light, a Rape accused who was recently acquitted by Allahabad High Court after spending 20 years in Jail. As per Upadhyay’s plea, the absence of effective statutory or legal scheme for providing mandatory compensatory scheme to victims of wrongful malicious prosecutions and incarceration of innocents, infringes fundamental rights guaranteed under Article 14 and 21 of the constitution. He pointed out that filing of false cases often leads to suicides of innocents, who are made victims of police and prosecutorial misconduct. He submitted that the Centre cannot shy away from its obligation to safeguard and protect the right to life, liberty and dignity to every citizen. Therefore, it is for the Centre to evolve suitable statutory and legal mechanism to address and safeguard citizen rights guaranteed under Article 21 against wrongful prosecutions and incarceration of innocents by addressing the miscarriage of justice by suitable amendments in the IPC and CrPC on utmost priority. Further, according to the petitioner, till the amendments are done, it is the need of hour to have a specific guidelines and for the State and its agencies to prevent such police and prosecutorial misconduct which is rampantly destroying lives of innocents who are falsely implicated and then acquitted after years of turmoil in the guise of “prosecution could not prove beyond doubt” and never served justice due to disdainful approach of State which is a factor for pendency of over 40 million cases. Mishra also emphasized that the law is being misused and abused by filing of fake and malicious complaints. He vented that no action is taken against fake complainants in the absence of an effective statutory/legal scheme for providing mandatory compensatory relief to victims of wrongful production. He also demanded that a mechanism should be put in place for speedy disposal of the cases pertaining to the under-trial prisoners, who are prosecuted in special acts and that, guidelines be framed for the under-trial prisoners to decide their cases in a time-bound manner. Vishnu Tiwari Case The Allahabad High Court recently acquitted a Rape Accused, who suffered 20 years of incarceration in connection with a false rape case filed against him by a woman owing to an alleged land dispute. A Division Bench of the High Court while passing the order for the release of one Vishnu, set aside the conviction order passed by a Trial Court in 2003, under Sections 376 and 506 of IPC and Section 3(2)(v) read with Section 3(1)(xii) of the Scheduled Casts and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989. It held, “We are unable to convince ourselves with the submission made by learned AGA for State that she has been a victim of atrocity as well rape and, therefore, the accused should not be leniently dealt with.” The Bench also expressed displeasure that a defective appeal was not cured for a period of 16 long years. It observed, “Most unfortunate, aspect of this litigation is that the appeal was preferred through jail. The matter remained as a defective matter for a period of 16 years and, therefore, we normally do not mention defective appeal number but we have mentioned the same.”Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Rates and mechanisms of turbulent dissipation and mixing in the Southern Ocean: Results from the Diapycnal and Isopycnal Mixing Experiment in the Southern Ocean (DIMES)

first_imgThe spatial distribution of turbulent dissipation rates and internal wave field characteristics is analysed across two contrasting regimes of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC), using microstructure and finestructure data collected as part of the Diapycnal and Isopycnal Mixing Experiment in the Southern Ocean (DIMES). Mid-depth turbulent dissipation rates are found to increase from O (1×10-10 W kg-1) in the Southeast Pacific to O (1×10-9 W kg-1) in the Scotia Sea, typically reaching 3×10-9 W kg-1 within a kilometre of the seabed. Enhanced levels of turbulent mixing are associated with strong near-bottom flows, rough topography, and regions where the internal wave field is found to have enhanced energy, a less-inertial frequency content and a dominance of upward-propagating energy. These results strongly suggest that bottom-generated internal waves play a major role in determining the spatial distribution of turbulent dissipation in the ACC. The energy flux associated with the bottom internal wave generation process is calculated using wave radiation theory, and found to vary between 0.8 mWm-2 in the Southeast Pacific and 14 m W m-2 in the Scotia Sea. Typically, 10-30% of this energy is found to dissipate within 1 km of the seabed. Comparison between turbulent dissipation rates inferred from finestructure parameterizations and microstructure-derived estimates suggests a significant departure from wave-wave interaction physics in the near-field of wave generation sites.last_img read more
