Click here to get access to our presentation, and learn how to get the name of this ‘double agent’! This FTSE 100 share has beaten the market for 10 years: should I buy? Today, I want to look at a FTSE 100 share I’ve admired for a while and am now poised to buy. The company is accounting software specialist Sage Group (LSE: SGE), one of the UK’s few large tech stocks.Sage shares have delivered an average annual return of more than 10% per year over the last decade, including dividends. This is roughly double the 5% average total return the FTSE 100 has provided over the same period.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…Despite this strong record, the latest numbers from Sage triggered a share price sell off. I think this fall may have been overdone, providing me with a potential buying opportunity. Let me explain.Why is this FTSE 100 share falling?In recent years, Sage has been gradually shifting its customers from standalone software to online subscription services. Although this should result in more reliable and predictable revenue in the future, in the short term, it’s putting some pressure on profit growth.The pandemic seems to have accelerated this change. Revenue from software subscriptions rose by 20.5% to £1,141m during the first half. However, this impressive result was offset by a 26% fall in traditional software sales.To add to the pressure on profits, sales of additional services to new customers slowed during the six months to 30 September. I don’t think that’s surprising really, given the impact of the pandemic.Sensibly, Sage management isn’t taking short-term measures to boost profits. Instead, the company is continuing to invest in new products and services to drive future growth. I think this is sensible, but it’s coming at a cost.The firm’s guidance is that profit margins could fall by up to 3% next year, due to increased investment in online products. My sums suggest this could see the firm’s profits fall next year, before gradually recovering in future years.Why I’d buy Sage sharesThe short-term outlook for Sage might be a little cautious. But I’m looking at this as a long-term investment. For me, the numbers stack up pretty well.For example, the firm’s latest accounts show Sage generated an operating profit margin of 21% last year. That’s well above the average for FTSE 100 shares. I think the company can afford to sacrifice a little short-term profit in exchange for longer-term growth.A second attraction is that Sage has little debt and strong cash generation. Without getting too technical, the firm tends to convert all of its annual profits into surplus cash. Not all companies can do this.In my view, this is the kind of high-quality FTSE 100 stock I want in my long-term ISA portfolio. I’m not alone in this view either. Two of the UK’s top fund managers, Nick Train and Terry Smith, each own about 5% of Sage. They’re both noted long-term investors with a focus on quality.Sage’s share price has fallen by 25% from its 52-week high of 794p. At around 580p, this FTSE 100 share trades on around 20 times earnings, with a 3% dividend yield. For a company of this quality, I think that’s a fair price. I may well buy Sage for my portfolio in the coming weeks.center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Just four in ten people are aware that children’s hospices provide ‘at home’ care and less than half are aware of the support provided to the siblings of children cared for by children’s hospices.The majority of people surveyed cited cancer as the reason children may be cared for by a hospice. Although not incorrect, only a small number of children supported by a children’s hospice are affected by cancer, with the majority having a wide range of complex neurological and metabolic conditions which deteriorate over a period of many years.However, there was considerable consensus on where the funding for children’s hospices should come. 80% of adults believe that children’s hospices should be funded by the government. The sector currently receives on average only 15% of its funding from the government.Children’s Hospices UK are concerned that the low awareness and understanding highlighted by this research could mean that some families are missing out on the valuable services on offer.www.childhospice.org.uklast_img read more

Calling out lies on the minimum wage

first_imgSeattle workers won a boost in the minimum wage three years ago, from $9.47 to $15 an hour for most workers at companies with 500 or more employees. This came as part of the movement that has led to minimum wage increases in dozens of cities across the country. Many are now earning the $15 per hour, with more to come, due to the national struggle.Since July, however, a new study by University of Washington (UW) researchers has brought the opponents of a $15 minimum wage out of the woodwork. The study actually claims that low-wage workers were hurt by the higher wage! The study says the minimum wage increase caused bosses to reduce the hours of minimum wage workers by 9 percent — and that the new minimum wage only raised their wages by 3 percent. But how could this be?This UW study has been grabbing headlines across the country.Another study, however, this one by the University of California Labor Center, came out around the same time as the UW study. It points out that the UW study excludes workers at businesses that have more than one location. In other words, only stand-alone small companies show up in its results.Workers at Starbucks, McDonalds and the other big chains aren’t included! The UC Labor Center says the UW report leaves “48 percent of Seattle’s low-paid workforce out of the study.” Workers at small companies are also covered by the new minimum wage law, but their raise to $15 an hour is more gradual.There’s another problem with the UW “study.” Its lead researcher, Jacob Vigdor, is an opponent of the minimum wage who wrote in a post in 2014: “The minimum wage is a lousy anti-poverty program.”Seattle’s unemployment rate is now 2.6 percent. Big business opponents of minimum wage increases had long warned it would result in restaurant closings, layoffs and other significant problems. None of these outcomes have come to pass, as the bosses scramble to come up with ­“alternative facts. “FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Why TCU didn’t sound the alert for Wednesday’s storm

He’s worked at The Dallas Morning News and PolitiFact in Washington, D.C. He holds the all-time record for highest batting average at his high school after he hit a single in his only at-bat during his senior season. printStudents were surprised they didn’t hear from TCU Alert last night.After all, another round of frozen H2O pelted Fort Worth on Wednesday. When that happened last week, the alert system went off at 4 a.m., waking students with early morning phone calls, text messages and loudspeaker announcements.So why the silence?The most dangerous part of last night’s storm passed north of TCU, over Keller and Southlake.“While there was strength there, it did not meet the criteria for sounding the alarm to motivate our community sheltering in place,” said Kathy Cavins-Tull, vice chancellor for student affairs.Cavins-Tull said last week TCU police works with the National Weather Service and emergency management personnel when deciding to use the TCU Alert system. She said the university used the same process for last night’s storm.Following the response to last week’s alerts, Cavins-Tull said the alarm system will only sound for 90 seconds in future emergencies.But while the system didn’t sound last night, students made it clear that they haven’t forgotten the last time TCU Alert went off.[<a href=”//storify.com/CJYoungman/students-are-still-throwing-shade-at-tcu-alert” target=”_blank”>View the story “Fort Worth Storms, round 2. ” on Storify</a>] Twitter TCU Frog Camps returning to more traditional look this summer New dean selected for honors college TCU drops rubber match 3-1 to Texas Tech; Frogs lose 2nd straight Big 12 series The College of Science and Engineering Dean, Phil Hartman, retires after 40 consecutive years Twitter ReddIt Previous article‘Values and Ventures’ competition attracts undergrads from all overNext articleHop your way into spring: a guide to upcoming local beer festivals Clayton Youngman RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Frogs close regular season with 9-3 win, sweep over Kansas State Clayton Youngmanhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/clayton-youngman/ Facebook Clayton Youngman ReddIt Linkedin This photo from March 17 shows the size of the hail in last week’s storm.

(JD Pells / TCU staff photographer)Seat 5, Row A, Section 112: Minter’s previous seat at TCU home games. (JD Pells / TCU staff photographer)Seat 5, Row A, Section 112.For 40 years, that’s where Dr. David Minter sat during every TCU home men’s basketball game. He remembers the wood floors and cloth banners that hung from the rafters of the then-Daniel-Meyer Coliseum. He saw the fans rush onto the floor in 1981 after TCU’s quadruple overtime win over the University of Houston. He heard the roar of the crowd in 1987 after Jamie Dixon’s miracle shot defeated the University of Texas.He hadn’t missed a home game in 40 years — until this year. Schollmaier Arena is restricted to 25% capacity, and season tickets were offered to all previous season ticket holders, according to the TCU Ticket Office. Minter said his request was denied.Tickets were awarded based on a point system according to donor level, according to TCU Athletics. When Minter was eligible to purchase a ticket, they were gone. But he’ll be starting a new streak at the Frogs’ next home game.When Athletic Director Jermiah Donati read that Minter’s streak was broken, he offered him tickets for the remaining home games this season. Minter’s seat. (JD Pells / TCU staff photographer)Minter’s seat. (JD Pells / TCU staff photographer)Minter has no ties to TCU athletics. His passion is teaching chemistry and mentoring students. He spends 15-20 hours each week in the lab working side-by-side with students, even working some weekends. Mentoring students in the lab and seeing them succeed, he said, is his favorite part of the job.“I’m most proud of being able to play a part in helping our pre-health students get into medical and dental schools,” Minter said. In the fall of 1980, Minter came to TCU and began teaching a class notorious for its difficulty: organic chemistry I. Brent Blackburn was one of the first two students to work in Minter’s organic chemistry lab.As the lab finished on the night that marked the season opener for men’s basketball, Blackburn asked Minter if he wanted to go to the game. They attended every home game together for the next two years.Throughout the past 40 years, Minter was a fixture in the crowd. Scott Stone, captain for Horned Frog Hospitality, has worked at every men’s basketball game for the past seven years. After one year, he was stationed in section 112, and Minter’s seat was directly to his left. Stone quickly recognized that Minter didn’t miss any games. “There are people who sit in the lower bowl and get the attention and are in the club, but [Minter] always sat there quietly without drawing attention,” Stone said. “He is the most hardcore fan.”Stone said Minter is the only fan he knows of who attends the games so consistently. “I couldn’t have peace until he was in his seat,” Stone said. “Where is he? He has to be here any minute.” This season, Stone said he only works about half the games and he has noticed one person is missing: Minter.”Not seeing him in his ‘spot’ this season is just another reminder of how COVID-19 has changed things so much,” Stone said. “Our every-game handshake is missed.””TCU Chemistry Department Staple”Minter teaches organic chemistry I and II, advanced organic chemistry and a special topics course on nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy at TCU.He walks in at exactly 8 a.m. carrying three black Expo markers in his hands. He immediately begins to draw on the board, launching into the material for the day. He lectures completely from memory.“He never once looked at notes,” senior biology major Jake Lynn said. “He would do it all from the genius of his brain.” Morgan Lindsey, senior biology and child development double major, described Minter as a “TCU chemistry department staple.”Lindsey also said Minter’s class positively impacted her college experience as a whole. Minter and the students in his lab try to discover new reactions that can create compounds to treat illnesses. Most of these compounds they create contain nitrogen, like many other drugs that are important in treating various illnesses. Blackburn, who earned a Ph.D. at the University of Texas at Austin and founded Rapidscan Pharma Solutions Inc., said his launch point for success was working in Minter’s lab. “I learned what it takes to do original research, and I was lucky enough to be a contributing author on a publication from the work we did,” Blackburn said. “Most importantly, however, is how that experience prepared me to succeed in graduate school.”The pair did research on the reduction reactions of quinoline boranes. Their findings were published in the journal Tetrahedron Letters in 1984.Last year, Blackburn was awarded the Distinguished Alumni Award by the TCU College of Science and Engineering for his prominence in the chemistry field. A teacher’s influenceMinter’s love of chemistry started in Sarah Seeley’s second-grade class in Center, Texas, where he was born and raised.“I’ll never forget her as long as I live,” Minter said. “I got a really good dose of chemistry and what it was all about, and I never lost that interest through junior high and high school.””I knew chemistry was the thing that was always interesting.”Dr. MinterMinter started his career as a research chemist for Dow Chemical Company. However, industrial chemistry wasn’t flexible or creative enough, Minter said. “When I saw something in the lab I couldn’t explain, I automatically wanted to continue in that direction to find out what was going on,” Minter said. “So, that automatically led me to want to be at the university teaching and doing research.” He has published about 40 papers in scientific journals. He received the Dean’s Teaching Award in 1995 and 2008. He is also part of both the organic division and DFW chapter of the American Chemical Society. In 2015, Blackburn created the Dr. David Minter Chemistry Research Fund in honor of Minter and his work mentoring students and teaching chemistry. This fund provides research opportunities to students who major in chemistry or biology.TCU BasketballMinter and Blackburn have been through the ups and downs of TCU basketball games through the years. When they first started going to games, there were nights when they were among only a handful of people in the stands. The crowds started coming after the Frogs had their first winning season in 10 years in 1982. “I have stood probably for two hours in the parking lot of Daniel-Meyer, three hours before game time, waiting for the doors to open so I could get out and get a seat,” Minter said. One player who stands out in Minter’s memory is current head coach Jamie Dixon. “He was really the glue that held the team together,” Minter said. “He was solid, solid as a rock.” Minter’s favorite moment of all his time with TCU basketball involves Dixon: His “miracle shot,” a 35-foot buzzer-beater he hit in 1986 to lift the Frogs to victory over Texas. “The stands emptied onto the floor,” he said. “It was pandemonium.” Minter is often accompanied at the games by his organic chemistry students, such as Lynn. When asked about the type of spectator Minter is, Lynn laughed. “He’s been to a lot of TCU basketball games, so he definitely knows his stuff,” Lynn said. “He’s not afraid to share his opinion at the games that’s for sure.”Minter at a home basketball game on March 7, 2020.

(Heesoo Yang / Staff Photographer)Minter talking with members of hospitality on March 7, 2020. (Heesoo Yang / Staff Photographer)On the Court While Minter doesn’t shoot hoops with students, he does enjoy challenging them on the racquetball court.He plays with any student who asks, using the time to build relationships: his favorite part of the job. When Lynn was in Minter’s organic chemistry I class, older students told him Minter enjoyed playing racquetball. So, he challenged him to a match. “I had never played racquetball before, so I was pretty nervous the first time we played,” Lynn said. “He absolutely smoked me then, and every time we played. I don’t think I’ve ever actually beaten him.” Lynn and Minter played racquetball every Friday at 5 p.m. through fall 2018 and spring 2019. After the matches, they would eat dinner at Potbelly. “We would talk about organic chemistry, but we would also talk about basketball, religion, politics, medicine and where it’s headed in the future,” Lynn said. “Talking about life and learning about him was a special part of our relationship that formed inside and outside the classroom.”His office door is always wide open to students seeking help with organic chemistry homework, challenging him to a racquetball match or accompanying him to a TCU basketball game. Even this year, with COVID-19 forcing many classes online, Minter still opens his lab to in-person instruction. He also still planned to attend TCU basketball games in-person. “Oh, I’ll absolutely be there this year yes, yes,” he said in October. “I’ll be there with my mask on.”Now, after 40 years, there is no room in the stands and no one in Seat 5, Row A, Section 112. TopBuilt with Shorthand Former Fort Worth, TCU Police Department officer dies of COVID-19 and on-duty injury complications RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Olivia Waleshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/olivia-wales/last_img read more

The recurrence of this kind of assault could have serious consequences in terms of media self-censorship.“While hailing the communication and information minister’s rapid condemnation, we remind the government that failure to punish those responsible will be taken by the media and the public to mean the police are above the law.”A court and police reporter, Kayok was assaulted near his office on the evening of 20 April but the attack was not reported until 23 April, when NBC included it in its morning news bulletin.The incident began when a friend accompanying Kayok was attacked by several uniformed police officers who had been following them. Kayok interceded and identified himself as a NBC reporter. Accusing the media of reporting bad things about the police, they turned on Kayok, punching and kicking him repeatedly, breaking his nose and inflicting other, lesser injuries.The PNG Media Workers Association reacted by voicing concern about the “unusually high number of threats and acts of intimidation.”In a 9 March press release, Reporters Without Borders condemned the behaviour of the police officers who threatened and manhandled Post-Courier reporter Patrick Talu while he was covering a meeting in Port Moresby on 7 March between officials and opponents of a proposed pipeline.

first_img STAFF REPORT Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy 19 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it County health officials reported 45 new deaths and 961 new cases of the Coronavirus on Tuesday.To date, 33,180 people have tested positive for the virus, and a total of 1,613 deaths.Ninety-two percent of people who died had underlying health conditions.The new numbers were released hours after county health director Barbara Ferrer announced that the county’s Safer at Home order will be “all but certainly” extended through July.“Each day, we know there are people across our community who are experiencing the sorrow of losing a loved one to COVID-19. We are so sorry for your loss, and we wish you peace and healing,” said Barbara Ferrer. “Later this week, we will be issuing a new Health Officer Order that continues to lay out directives that need to be followed as we continue on our recovery journey. Our journey will be slow and we will be looking closely at key indicators to make sure we are continuing to slow the spread of COVID-19. Thank you so much for working together and doing your part. Your actions have been working and saving lives.”Currently, LA County is in stage two of the five-stage roadmap to recovery which allows florists and some retailers to offer curbside pickup only, car dealership showrooms to reopen with appropriate physical distancing and infection control measures, and trails and golf courses to open with pro shops remaining closed to public entry.As a reminder, retail establishments are closed to all public entry and must ensure compliance with all protocols before reopening. Additional restrictions may be lifted later this week to allow for reopening additional retailers for curbside pickup, select manufacturers, and additional recreational facilities.Until the final stage five is reached, Health Officer Orders and directives will continue to ensure the slow of spread of COVID-19 to prevent an overwhelming surge of COVID-19 cases at healthcare facilities.An interactive dashboard is available that provides an overview on COVID-19 testing, cases and deaths along with maps and graphs showing testing, cases and death data by community poverty level, age, sex and race/ethnicity.Of those who died, information about race and ethnicity is available for 1,490 people (99 percent of the cases); 38% of deaths occurred among Latinx residents, 29% among White residents, 18% among Asian residents, 13% among African American residents, 1% among Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander residents and 1% among residents identifying with other races. African Americans, Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, and people living in communities with high levels of poverty continue to have the highest rate of death per 100,000 people for COVID-19 when compared to other groups. Upon further investigation, 39 cases and one death reported earlier were not LA County residents. As of today, 5,508 people who tested positive for COVID-19 (17% of positive cases) have been hospitalized at some point during their illness. There are 1,731 people who are currently hospitalized, 26% of these people are in the ICU and 18% are on ventilators. Testing capacity continues to increase in LA County, with testing results available for nearly 253,000 individuals and 11% of people testing positive.The best protection against COVID-19 is to wash your hands frequently, avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands, self-isolate if you are sick, practice physical distancing (especially by staying at home) and wear a clean face covering when in contact with others from outside your household. When you are out and around people, continue to practice physical distancing of at least 6 feet apart and wear a clean cloth face covering that securely covers both your nose and mouth. COVID-19 has not changed. People who have underlying health conditions remain at much greater risk for serious illness from COVID-19, so it will continue to be very important for the County’s vulnerable residents to stay at home as much as possible, to have groceries and medicine delivered, and to know to call their providers immediately if they have even mild symptoms.
