KCS-content whatsapp Yeo said BP was the “unwitting victim” of US domestic politics after Hayward told the parliamentary committee that the failings which caused the spill were not particular to the company he heads.“It’s been easy for some parties to suggest that this is a problem with BP. I emphatically do not believe that that is the case,” the outgoing chief executive said.Hayward denied that there was any link between the accident and previous safety lapses at BP such as a 2005 refinery blast that killed 15 workers.“It’s very dangerous to join up dots that may not be appropriate to join up,” he said.Hayward said the decision of rivals such as Royal Dutch Shell and Exxon Mobil to criticise it in the wake of the disaster reflected the political climate in the United States at the time, rather than because of BP operating outside industry norms, as the companies said.Hayward received a less confrontational treatment from the committee than he received from a US Congressional committee. His appearance came on the same day regulators criticised BP for its safety training regime in the North Sea.Health and Safety Executive (HSE) inspectors found the company lacked a clear chain of command for dealing with a loss of well control on a North Sea oil rig – three months before a blow-out in the Gulf of Mexico caused America’s worst ever oil spill. In a letter HSE said to BP that there was “evidence of a culture among your contractors, Seawell (up to senior levels of management), of working outside of procedures, permit or permit conditions”. last_img read more

The adult gaming centre (AGC) operator claims 360 represents the biggest social responsibility undertaking by a low-stakes gambling operator in the British market.  Gauselmann UK, the British subsidiary of the German gaming giant, will form a new social responsibility advisory board and create a new dedicated role focused on customer experience as part of its new ‘360’ programme. 19th October 2020 | By Robin Harrison “When it comes to protecting the vulnerable and the very small percentage of players who may experience problems from low stake gambling entertainment, you can never do enough, it’s a journey without there actually being a final destination,” he added. Regions: UK & Ireland We want to ensure that we are establishing the very highest standards in order to deliver a safe gambling entertainment experience for all of our customers in particular those that may require additional levels of support,” Blodau explained.

Why I’d buy bargain FTSE 100 shares in this stock market crash to make a passive income

first_imgWhy I’d buy bargain FTSE 100 shares in this stock market crash to make a passive income Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The FTSE 100’s market crash has caused a number of stocks to now offer wide margins of safety. Their prices have fallen to exceptionally low levels that, in many cases, would prompt income investors to buy them for the long run.However, the problem is that many FTSE 100 companies have decided to delay, reduce, or even cancel their dividends. This could mean income investors experience a relatively challenging near-term outlook. And that comes at a time when other assets also offer low returns.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…But, by focusing on companies with solid financial situations and those businesses that are currently not being impacted financially by coronavirus, you could obtain a generous passive income in the long run.Income prospectsInvestors who require an income from their capital may wish to focus on companies not currently experiencing financial challenges. An increasing number of FTSE 100 companies are likely to report a drop in sales. And this could hurt their near-term dividend prospects. But some of the index’s members could also continue to operate as usual.This could mean investors need to delve further into a company’s financial standing before buying it. Likewise, they may wish to consider recent updates. These will determine the prospect of dividends being cut.However, it’s still possible to build an income portfolio containing a diverse range of businesses that offer relatively high income returns.Furthermore, some FTSE 100 companies that have delayed dividends appear to have done so due to an increased level of caution. In other words, they’re not experiencing financial difficulties from coronavirus. Instead, they’ve decided to suspend dividend payments to ensure financial stability. In such cases, a return to dividend payments could take place as the economy begins to recover.Bargain buysAs well as the prospect of a generous income return relative to other assets, such as cash and bonds, the FTSE 100 offers impressive capital growth potential. The past performance of the index shows it has a history of cyclicality. Its bull markets have never lasted in perpetuity. Indeed, they’ve been punctuated by several major bear markets since the index’s inception in 1984.Buying during any of the FTSE 100’s bear markets would have probably been seen as a wrong move at the time. After all, the prospects for the world economy in 1987 and in 2009 were especially downbeat.However, the economy and the stock market ultimately went on to post strong recoveries. The same outcome may seem unlikely at present. But, in the long run, there’s likely to be a return to high total returns across the FTSE 100.Therefore, income investors may be able to benefit from the recovery prospects of the FTSE 100. Through buying financially-sound businesses that offer solid dividends, you can boost your passive income and improve your long-term financial outlook.

Such is his track record (he’s turned every £10k of investor money into nearly £50k in less than a decade), that people even refer to him as ‘Britain’s Warren Buffett’.One thing I like about Smith is that he’s not afraid to share his wisdom. Every year, he writes a detailed letter to his investors in which he provides plenty of great advice. With that in mind, here are some quotes from Smith that could potentially help you make more money from stocks.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…“Someone once said that no one ever got poor by taking profits. This may be true but I doubt they got very rich by this approach either.”Here, Smith is talking about the importance of letting your stock market winners run. Generally speaking, the big money in investing comes from holding on to a winner for the long term.All too often, investors buy a stock, make a quick gain of say 20%, and then sell to bank their profits. This approach can be profitable. However, holding on to winners for the long term can be far more profitable.Hold a winner for five years instead of five months and you might be looking at a gain of 2,000%, instead of 20%.“Markets are not perfect but they are not totally inefficient either and most of the stocks which have valuations which attract value investors have them for good reason – they are not good businesses.”What Smith is pointing out here is that stock valuations generally incorporate most of the information that is available to investors. In other words, if a stock is cheap, it’s cheap for a reason.Quite often, investors spot a cheap stock and think it’s a bargain. What they fail to understand, however, is that everyone else knows it’s cheap including institutional investors, hedge funds, and professional investors. What do they know that the professionals don’t?Smith’s approach is to ignore cheap stocks and instead, focus on high-quality businesses.“Consistently high returns on capital are one sign we look for when seeking companies to invest in.”One of the key elements of Smith’s investment approach is that he focuses on companies that are highly profitable. Specifically, he looks for companies that can sustain a high return on operating capital employed. These types of companies generally tend to generate strong investment returns over time.Smith believes that over the long term, the returns on a stock portfolio will tend to gravitate to the returns generated by the companies in the portfolio themselves (which he points out “are low” for most ‘value’ stocks).In other words, if you build a portfolio of high-quality businesses that are very profitable, you’ll probably do pretty well in the long run.“We have a simple three-step investment strategy: buy good companies, don’t overpay, do nothing.”Finally, this is a great quote that highlights the simplicity of Smith’s investment strategy.Investing doesn’t need to be complicated. To generate good returns, you don’t need to use options, or derivatives or short stocks.All you really need to do is invest in great companies at reasonable valuations and hold them for the long term.That three-step plan could just be the key to making money from stocks.

The fight to end sexism: Lessons from Trump’s woman-hating, Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton

first_imgOct. 18 — The sordid video of Donald Trump’s vulgar sexist remarks has opened up a widespread national conversation on sexism and misogyny in the U.S. and ignited deep outrage.There are two important lessons that progressives and revolutionaries must consider during this conversation.First, the scandal has brought to the surface the horrific nature of women’s oppression in capitalist society. Fighting sexism, along with fighting racism and police terror, must be at the top of the progressive agenda. As the U.S. may soon elect its first woman president, it is of the utmost necessity to fight sexism. And that fight must be considerably nuanced.Second, the election campaign has revealed that the political system administered by Washington on behalf of Wall Street and the Pentagon is in deep crisis. Capitalism at a dead end. Despite the demoralizing campaign shenanigans, workers and oppressed must not retreat, but be inspired to build a revolutionary movement like never before.A “shitstorm” of misogynyThe recent video of Trump boasting of sexual assault has unleashed and emboldened Trump’s “deplorables” in their woman-hating. The video opened up wounds for many a victim of sexual assault, with the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network reporting that calls for help by women had jumped to about 800 a day.The Southern Poverty Law Center, which monitors U.S. right-wing and hate groups, began to document anti-women groups a few years ago. It also tracks “manospheres” — blogs and online forums launching sexist attacks on women — and reported on those in “Misogyny: the Sites.” (splcenter.org)Mark Potok, editor of that report, remarked: “I was completely astounded. I had no idea that there was this dark world of woman hatred“ where “misogyny had become an increasingly common means of articulating broader discontent.” (New York Times, Oct. 16)Trump doubles downTrump’s sexist crimes of verbal and physical assault have showed that women’s oppression is alive and well under capitalist society — not just abroad but right here “at home.” The capitalist media and U.S. administrations’ justification of imperialist war to “save women” have, in the past, located the oppression of women as if it happens only in the Middle East or elsewhere.But now the video and Trump’s subsequent denial of ever assaulting anyone have encouraged women sexually assaulted by him to come forward. At least nine women have recounted the vilest incidences. Trump has walked into teen beauty pageants while young, underage women were half dressed. He has approached a stranger next to him on a plane, reached under her skirt and kissed her aggressively — without her consent. He has sexually assaulted a woman journalist assigned by her publication to interview him.Without a doubt, Trump is a sexist predator. He embodies the epitome of ruling-class, straight, white male privilege. But Trump’s reactionary sexist and racist base continues to blame women and back him. Thuggish followers have tried to cover up Trump’s behavior by claiming Hillary Clinton’s election would be a victory for sexism because her husband, former President Bill Clinton, committed sexual assault.Ominously, Trump supporters have stepped up their threats of violence against Hillary Clinton with shouts of “lock her up” and worse. Trump himself promised to jail Clinton if he is elected — an unheard of threat by a U.S. presidential candidate against a political opponent.It is important to note what’s at the base of Trump’s campaign, in addition to bitter sexism. Trump has gathered and galvanized a corrosive and poisonous element. At its heart is racism. This current, always present in U.S. politics, reemerged with the election of the first Black president, a moment in history it refuses to  accept.That is at the heart of the slogan “Make America Great Again.” What Trump supporters mean is “Make America Racist and White Male Again.” This base is anti-immigrant to its core because migrants are contributing in record numbers to the “browning of America,” a historical development they fear down to their racist boots.News accounts indicate women are turning away from Trump’s campaign in droves. Now Trumpites rant that women’s right to vote should be repealed by abolishing the 19th amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which gave women the vote only in 1920. This sexist assault links Trump’s base to current right-wing attacks on voting access for people of color, who have fought to defend their right to the ballot from the abolition of slavery to this very day.Corrosive sexism & misogyny Woman-hating hurts everybody. It is dangerous for women first and foremost, but it is also damaging for children. Men as well are affected by the oppression of women — the oldest oppression of all. This is why the fight to end sexism must be revolutionary and class conscious. It must be led by women, especially women of color, but men must see women’s liberation as their fight as well.To that end, the term “toxic masculinity” has encouragingly been added to today’s vernacular and to widespread discussion. As a 2015 Salon article noted: “The three most destructive words a father or mother can tell their young son is to ‘Be a man.’”In an Oct. 13 New York Times article, Jared Sexton expanded on Trump’s toxic masculinity: “Taking refuge in traditional masculinity is a coping mechanism that works only so much as it deadens a man and his emotions. Their masculinity, already a coping mechanism, becomes toxic. … I’ve heard men attack the character of women in the same tone that an uncle once used to call for the nuclear annihilation of the entire Middle East and the murder of every last Arab. I’ve heard men … then excuse it all with one of Mr. Trump’s pet phrases: ‘We live in the real world.’”Sexton puts this into an economic context: “But the real world — complicated foreign policy questions, confusing social change, economic dislocation — is precisely what toxic masculinity is trying to avoid.” At a time when the economic crisis has closed factories, when Uber jobs at $13 an hour are the best can get, when home after home is foreclosed, toxic masculinity should be studied and fought against.That is why revolutionaries and class-conscious fighters refuse to give up on male workers. Many of Trump’s “deplorables” are lost forever. But some cannot and should not be given up on.And real world violent attacks on women must always be kept in mind. As novelist Margaret Atwood has said, “Men are worried that women will laugh at them, while women are worried that men will kill them.” Indeed, on Oct. 10 six women walking in the vicinity of Trump Towers in New York City were accosted by a group of young men who tried to light them on fire. Those attempts were unsuccessful. (NY Times, Oct. 16)A Hillary Clinton war-monger presidencyTrump’s misogyny was turned on its head last week by a woman of color who has endured not only racism and sexism, but hate mail and death threats.First Lady Michelle Obama gave one of the most stirring speeches of this election season at a Oct. 13 campaign rally for Clinton. Her words in defense of women and against the actions of Trump were beautifully, dramatically eloquent.Gloria Steinem, the 70s’ feminist, called her a prophet. Democrats and independents both loved her talk. Even conservatives were shaken by it. Glenn Beck, calling it “the most effective political speech I have heard since Ronald Reagan,” said, “It kills me to say that.” (glennbeck.com)The speech brought this writer to tears, despite the fact that Obama’s husband has deported Mexicans and other migrants in record numbers —  policies the First Lady has not opposed.Michelle Obama spoke to the heart about the deep feelings women have about sexual predation and assault. She shamed misogynists in the process.Then she ended her words by calling on everyone to ensure the election of Hillary Clinton. But Clinton is no friend of the people, despite glaring differences between her and The Donald.Clinton is a well-documented warmonger, a hawk who has the blood of the Honduran, Libyan and Syrian people on her hands. She has historically backed the economic and political forces implicated in the mass incarceration of millions, primarily Black and Brown people. She is aligned with dismantling the federal welfare system, which ramped up extreme poverty for poor women and women of color.The progressive movement must fight a Clinton administration tooth and nail on these issues and beyond. We cannot stop until Washington jails killer cops and stops mass deportations. The demands raised by young people who supported the Sanders movement — like the cancellation of student debt — must be brought forward and expanded.But the struggle against a Clinton administration must be nuanced and thoughtful. Just as was necessary during the two terms of the first Black president, the struggle against Clinton must be factual and not sexist,  pro-worker and not misogynistic.Clinton must be attacked for her program, for her deeds and not for what she wears or what she looks like. Woman-hating terms must not be used. Her body parts are off limits, no matter her crimes.On Jan. 20, thousands will converge in Washington, D.C., to protest the inauguration — likely of the first U.S. female president. But a woman in the White House will mean little as long as decisions coming out of the Oval Office are controlled by the Pentagon and Wall Street.Gutierrez is campaign manager for Workers World 2016 presidential and vice-presidential candidates Monica Moorehead and Lamont Lilly.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Al-Jazeera’s Ramallah bureau allowed to reopen

It is vital that all points of view, even if they are shocking, should be freely expressed within Palestinian society”, the worldwide press freedom organisation said.“If the media which relay them are frightened of being seized, banned or closed, President Mahmoud Abbas will be responsible for this deterioration”, the organisation added. Secretary General of Fatah, Farouk Kaddoumi, referred in the programme to the responsibility of Abbas and Mohamed Dahlan, the leader of Fatah in Gaza, in the death of Yasser Arafat in November 2004.A journalist at the Qatar-based channel told Reporters Without Borders that three police officers had arrived at the station’s Ramallah offices at around 2pm today and ordered all staff to stop work. Bureau chief, Walid Al-Omari, had been informed by phone and email earlier in the morning of the Palestinian Authority’s decision. The station’s 35 staff on the West Bank have now been laid off until further notice and are unable to report the news. The Palestinian Authority said it would be taking the case before the courts. The channel’s management in Doha, Qatar, said in a statement that they were “astonished” by the Palestinian Authority’s decision to suspend its work in the West Bank and to open proceedings against the channel”. They pointed out that Al-Jazeera has always observed journalistic ethics and that “a decision of this type by the Palestinian Authority constitutes a violation of media freedom and a refusal to allow different views to be expressed”. The channel added that other media had put out the same report.

Every New Year’s Day throngs flock to the streets for a chance to see the parade up-close. Others stay home and watch the parade in their jammies, along with the rest of the country, snuggled up with loved ones.This year the parade is officially known as the 127th Rose Parade Presented by Honda. A lot of the country may think that the parade is there to accompany the football game but that is not true. Some football fans may consider it blasphemy but Sindee Roboli of Sharp Seating told Pasadena Now that “The Rose Bowl Game initially was just an added feature to the parade to entice more people to show up.”The first parade was conceived back in 1890. There was a hunt club that year, Valley Hunt Club, which wanted to entice tourists from the east coast to head west. They came up with a parade to precede a contest for the most beautiful California blooms. A gentleman professor named Charles F. Holder proclaimed “Here our flowers are blooming and our oranges are about to bear. Let’s hold a festival to tell the world about our paradise.”The parade has evolved over the years from such things as a camel versus elephant races to amazing floats decorated with thousands of pounds of flowers. Tickets are on sale right now for the Friday January 1st, 2016 event, prices range from $48.00­$95.00.
