Image source: Getty Images Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Investors looking for UK stocks to buy today have plenty of options. Some of the biggest and best companies in the world are listed on the London market. These stocks, like the two firms profiled below, may produce high returns for investors in the years ahead. UK stocks to buy right now Hikma Pharmaceuticals (LSE: HIK) is one of the best pharmaceutical businesses in the world. The company’s prominence in the global sector makes it one of the best UK stocks for long-term investors. 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 business specialises in producing and developing low-cost treatments. These so-called generic versions of popular drugs are increasingly in demand because they cost significantly less than branded versions.In a world where demand for healthcare is only growing, the cost of providing treatment is becoming an increasingly important consideration for many healthcare providers. This growing demand, coupled with Hikma’s treatment pipeline, should help the business grow for many years to come. This suggests that it may be one of the most secure UK stocks to buy today. It has also become an income champion.Over the past six years, the company has doubled its annual dividend. The current yield stands at 1.6%. If payout growth continues, as it has done for the past six years, investors buying the stock today could see a yield on their investment of 4.8% by 2025, and 11% by 2030.As such, if you’re looking for the best growth and income UK stocks to buy today, it may be worth considering Hikma for your portfolio. Sage GroupSage Group (LSE: SGE) also stands out as one of the best UK stocks to buy right now. The company is fast becoming a global leader in accountancy software.It has invested significant amounts of money in providing services through the cloud, which has increased the group’s customer base. This also gives the company a steady monthly income stream from customer subscriptions.Sage is one of the few UK stocks that offers a straightforward way to invest in the tech scene. It’s highly cash generative with a diversified global customer base, and room for some significant expansion in the years ahead. Even though the company is competing with several other providers in the sector, Sage is one of the most established. This should give the group a strong competitive advantage.As it can be quite costly if accounts are filed incorrectly, customers are unlikely to go with an untrusted provider just to keep costs low. That’s where Sage excels against the competition. Therefore, the company may be one of the best UK stocks to buy today. It’s a world leader with a long runway for growth in front of it. What’s more, shares in the tech group currently support a dividend yield of 2.5%.That implies investors will be paid a steady income as Sage’s operations grow. Looking for UK stocks to buy?

Honey Badger – A Devotional Song to Nick Cummins

first_imgThursday Apr 24, 2014 Honey Badger – A Devotional Song to Nick Cummins He’s even got his own song now. Yes, just when you thought you hadn’t heard about Force winger Nick Cummins for a while (about a week?), a musician has released this gem of a track as an ode to the cult hero. It features some of the Honey Badger’s best bits, including a one-armed brick layer, a bag of meat and a rat up a drainpipe.Written and produced by Denis Carnahan, this parody of the classic tune Hallelujah has spread far and wide since being uploaded yesterday. It’s not just Australians who love it either – fans from across the globe have embraced the Badgerisms we’ve been treated to of late.In the words of Carnhan himself, he describes this piece as: “A song dedicated to Rugby’s master of the simile, the Poet of Perth, the most Australian man in the world, Nick “The Honey Badger” Cummins. If you haven’t heard of him, you should have. Google him. He’s awesome.”If you’re a fan, you’ll love this. And if you were wondering about the Waratahs ball at the end, it’s a nod to the hat-trick the Badge scored against the Sydney powerhouses recently.You can follow Denis on Twitter at @DenisCarnahan, and watch more of Cummins’ pearls of widsom and great play in the Related Posts below.

MP calls for fundraisers to support face-to-face

first_imgMP calls for fundraisers to support face-to-face Tagged with: face-to-face Individual giving PFRA AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Horwood, MP for Cheltenham since 2005, was speaking at a reception at the Houses of Parliament to mark the fifth anniversary of the Public Fundraising Regulatory Association (PFRA), the self-regulatory body for F2F fundraising.The former fundraiser for Oxfam and the Alzheimer’s Society said: “The money raised through F2F fundraising has helped to lift people out of poverty and helped them to understand their rights and to challenge those keeping them in poverty.“If the thrust to regulate F2F out of existence had succeeded, the problem would not have been that just a few agencies lost their contracts and put some people out of work, it would have been that people living in poverty and people suffering problems and disadvantages all around the world would have suffered”.He endorsed the work of the PFRA, adding that he has tried to explain and build understanding of face-to-face fundraising in Parliament through his work on the Charities Act.He commented that opposition to F2F as a fundraising method often came from “people who think they know how it works or how much it costs but actually don’t know a lot about it at all”.He pointed out that MPs should recognise and be familiar with the value of face-to-face fundraising. “If some MPs question whether face-to-face contact on the street is the best way for charities to engage donors”, he advised, “ask them how they engage with voters. Yes, they do it by direct mail and by telemarketing, but they will tell you that the best way to get through to voters is to get out on to the street and talk to them directly – we call it canvassing.” Howard Lake | 30 June 2009 | Newscenter_img  31 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Liberal Democrat MP and former charity fundraiser Martin Horwood has urged professional fundraisers to show more support for face-to-face (F2F) fundraising.“I want to see more fundraising directors supporting face-to-face in public and not just through the pages of the charity sector press,” he said.

OWS movement & the ‘Global Class War’

first_imgYouth in the U.S. are totally justified in hating the 1%. This small elite of ultra-wealthy people has left us with barely any future to look forward to.The 1% is the capitalist class. They own the big banks, factories, industries, oil wells, big-box stores and “commanding heights” of the economy. They own the world, and the rest of humanity can only live by selling our labor to them. The wages we get in exchange are practically nothing. The working class — the 99% — has created the wealth of the entire world, yet the 1% gets to own it.Occupy Wall Street and the Occupy movement are a glorious development. It is the “generation without a future” pouring into the streets and fighting back. “It’s like a neon sign has been put up in the sky announcing ‘Rise up! Rise up!’ ” said Larry Holmes, Workers World Party’s First Secretary. As a generation, many of us are rising up.We may not be able to find a decent paying job with benefits. We may be in debt for decades trying to pay for our education. We may not be able to look forward to any economic comfort or the so-called “American Dream.” But we can certainly fight back against these conditions!We can take over public space! We can seize bank lobbies! We can construct barricades! We can defy police orders! We can create chaos and unrest in response to the tyranny of the rich!We are a new movement of militant young radicals, and as our movement deepens and grows, what we need more than anything else is to make allies. We cannot stand alone against the 1%.The 1% has made enemies all over the globe. In Paraguay they just carried out a coup and overthrew a popular government. The 1% bombed and destroyed Libya, leaving it in ruins and killing thousands because Libyans dared to keep the oil profits for themselves, and not hand them over to Wall Street. With their guns pointed at Syria and Iran, they are threatening a wider and bigger war in the Middle East. The 1% and its Pentagon are locked and loaded, ready to spill the blood of anyone who defies them.The same New York Police Department thugs of the 1% that clubbed heads in Zuccotti Park are stopping and frisking people of color every day. They are also targeting lesbian, gay, bi, trans and queer people. There is a crisis of police terror around the country, as cops murder innocent Black and Latino/a people with a free hand, often facing no penalty. There are more than 2 million people in prison in this “free” country, and more prisons are being built all the time. Children of six or seven are being dragged out of school in handcuffs. A racist thug killed Trayvon Martin, and almost got away with it.When people of color resist police terror, they are fighting against the 1%. When people in Libya resist NATO occupiers, they are fighting the 1%. When immigrants resist vigilante terrorism and repressive laws in Arizona and elsewhere, they are fighting the 1%.Capitalist class versus working classThese are not simply struggles of wrong against right. They are struggles of class against class.The rule of the 1% is a built-in feature of the economic system of capitalism. Capitalism in its highest stage, where the wealthy bankers in a few countries dominate and repress working people the world over, is called imperialism. That’s where we’re at now.Racism, anti-immigrant bigotry, police brutality, anti-LGBTQ oppression, sexism and the oppression of women, the marginalization of disabled people, the continued drive toward war and destruction, unemployment, mass poverty — all these things flow from this system of capitalism/imperialism. This global system is in an economic meltdown, and all over the globe people are feeling its desperation and viciousness.If OWS is going to grow stronger and more powerful, we have no choice but to join with all the forces involved in this worldwide struggle. Only with millions on our side, from every walk of life, can we truly move toward bringing capitalism/imperialism to its knees.Can you imagine how the world could look if we actually defeat the 1%? We would hold all the productive power and wealth in common so we could plan the economy in order to eradicate poverty, homelessness, unemployment and all other profit-borne horrors. We could clean up the environment and make sure the earth’s resources are sustainable for future generations. We could work toward liquidating all oppression and discrimination and building true equality.But we can’t do it alone! Sam Marcy, the founder of Workers World Party, called this all-encompassing struggle the “Global Class War.” And it is a war. The 1% has made a mess of the world, but they have no intention of handing it over to the rest of us without a fierce fight.Youth in Syria, Iran, Cuba, Zimbabwe, Belarus and Venezuela are fighting to keep the 1% out of their homelands. Palestinians are resisting Zionist occupation. Prisoners are fighting back, demanding an end to tortuous conditions. Workers are fighting to protect their unions.The battle lines are clearly drawn. Now, as this battle rages, the OWS movement must clearly answer: “Which side are we on?” and “Are we ready to fight until victory?”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
