A number of UK shares are trading at price levels significantly down on a one-year basis, as a struggling world economy has weighed on their prospects.While further falls can’t be ruled out in the short term, they could offer long-term turnaround potential. A sustained stock market recovery has always been recorded after bear markets in the past. Therefore, with the following stocks currently offering wide margins of safety, now could be the right time to buy them in a diverse portfolio of UK 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…A low valuation relative to other FTSE 100 sharesLloyds Banking Group could offer a wide margin of safety compared to other FTSE 100 shares at the present time. The bank is experiencing very tough operating conditions caused by a weak economic performance and low interest rates. This could cause its financial performance to suffer in the first part of 2021. It also faces political uncertainty caused by Brexit.However, this outlook may be priced in by investors. The bank’s shares have fallen by 45% in the past year. It now trades on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 10, which suggests there’s scope for a share price recovery. With the UK economy’s prospects likely to improve significantly between now and the end of the year, the outlook for Lloyds may change materially over the coming months and years.A dividend opportunity relative to UK sharesGSK could also be an attractive investment versus other FTSE 100 shares. The company currently has a P/E ratio of under 12 as investors have seemingly cooled on its plans to split into two businesses.This change could mean instability in the short run. However, it may also provide additional growth opportunities and efficiencies worth the cost of separation. With GSK currently having a dividend yield in excess of 5%, it also has a worthwhile passive income return. With interest rates likely to remain low for many months, if not years, it may become increasingly popular among a wider pool of investors.A recovery opportunity following a tough periodSome FTSE 100 shares such as BT have been on a downward trend for many years. The telecoms giant now has a P/E ratio of 7.5 after its 30% stock price decline since January 2020.Although the company’s financial prospects may be downbeat in the short run, its operational progress has been encouraging. For example, it’s becoming more efficient and is investing in areas such as 5G and faster broadband speeds.This may provide the company with a competitive advantage that enables it to post rising profitability and a return to dividend payouts over the coming years. This may ignite investor interest in the stock and lead to a rise in its valuation.

Can Delays in Diagnosing Dementia Put Seniors at Risk?

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Adult Son Comforting Father Suffering With Dementia From Florida Hospital – ApopkaA recent study in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society suggests delays in diagnosing dementia can put seniors, and others, at risk. We checked in withRosemary Laird, MD, who specialized in geriatrics and internal medicine at FloridaHospital, to get her thoughts on the topic. The Anatomy of Fear Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Please enter your comment!

LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply The study says that people who show signs of dementia but have not yet been diagnosed are actually twice as likely as patients who have been diagnosed to be doing everyday tasks like driving and cooking that can potentially be harmful.So it’s important to get the diagnosis as soon as you spot the signs. “In early-stage illness, some patients can continue employment, driving, independent volunteer activities or community involvement,” says Dr. Laird. “As the disease progresses, the patient will need supervision and then assistance for the various functional tasks we all do in day to day life.”“Typically there’s a loss first among the more complex tasks such as driving, financial management and decision making, shopping and meal preparation,” she adds. “At some point in the middle stages there’s usually sufficient loss of ability to manage complex matters and/or judgment lapses such that incapacity for personal decision making occurs. Later personal care activities become dependent including medication management, bathing, dressing, eating and eventually ambulating.”“The first hurdle is to understand when an elder is displaying changes in his or her abilities that goes beyond the changes in ability that nearly anyone living into their 80s and beyond has,” she explains. “Those individuals are at greatest risk of making a mistake as a result of the intellectual change of dementia. In addition to the incidents mentioned in the research, in my practice I have had patients who first come to attention after making errors with medications, getting lost while driving, failing to file taxes properly or starting a fire in the kitchen.”“Patients or families who notice change should bring it to the attention of the primary care physician and request an evaluation,” she says. “Some PCPs will complete the evaluation themselves, while others will refer to specialists including geriatricians, neurologists, and psychiatrists.”Sometimes, patients will be fully aware of the changes and will be agreeable to medical evaluation. Others will not be as cooperative. For families facing this challenge your doctor may have advice. There is also an Alzheimer’s Association hotline you may call at 1.800.272.3900.

The construction process was cautious and care was taken not to damage roots and even have trees growing across the living room! The choice for a metallic structure would impact as little as possible since it is prefabricated and made under measure, therefore no use of earthwork machines or felling of adult trees was needed. The ground level is 1 (one) meter or more above the natural terrain, rising to a “stilt house”. The building occupies the center of the site where there was a glade and faces the street southwest.

Activists stop sexist events

first_imgBy Colleen Gillan and David CardBaltimoreThe Baltimore chapter of Fight Imperialism, Stand Together (FIST), a radical youth organization, led a militant protest Feb. 6 to combat the meetups led by Daryush “Roosh” Valizadeh. He is a racist, sexist, anti-feminist organizer who has written several books detailing his rape of numerous women. His website not only spreads hatred about women, but people of color, immigrants, people with disabilities, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans* and queer people. (Trans* is used with an asterisk to indicate the spectrum of all the different genders of people who do not conform to the either/or of male/female or masculine/feminine.)Followers of his website, Return of Kings, were scheduled to meet up in person on Feb. 6 in 43 cities around the world in order to organize and share tips on how to get away with raping women.When this was picked up by the news and social media, feminists around the world were outraged and organized counterdemonstrations to disrupt and prevent these meetings of so-called “men’s rights advocates” (MRA). FIST took up the call to action and organized a demonstration in front of South Baltimore’s Cross Street Market where the meetup was scheduled to take place.News broke on Feb. 3 that Valizadeh was forced to cancel the worldwide meetups after he declared that he and his followers did not feel safe due to radical feminist counterprotests. This was ironic given the fact that their terrorism against women contributes to the lack of safety that women feel every day.Several dozen activists, mainly women and LGBTQ people, gathered a half hour before the proposed 8 p.m. sexist meet-up. In between militant chants such as “MRA, KKK, f—k with us and you will pay,” many courageous women and survivors spoke out and shared their stories of the trauma that women endure living in a capitalist, patriarchal society.Other participants spoke about the racism, xenophobia, homophobia and transphobia they face. In addition to protesting against the violence that self-identified “men’s rights advocates” perpetuate against women, activists also called out the cops, pointing out that their history of rape and sexual abuse proves they are no friends of women.This courageous action, joined by activists all over the world, prevented the MRA sexists from gathering and being able to turn their online hatred into real life violence. It will require militant responses like this in order to ensure that the women’s liberation struggle continues to smash patriarchy and rape culture wherever it occurs.In this period of reaction against the past victories of women’s struggles, especially for reproductive justice, we must continue to fight back while at the same time acknowledging that the only way to end the oppression of women is with the revolutionary overthrow of the system that perpetuates it: capitalism.Long live working-class unity against misogyny.

Prosecutors face pushback for what critics call a lenient response to unrest

first_imgfilo/iStockBy MEREDITH DELISO, ABC News(NEW YORK) — Several top prosecutors have faced pushback in recent weeks for what critics say has been too lenient a response to unrest, including looting.The Cook County State’s attorney, Kim Foxx, was among the latest to face criticism after looting and violence overtook the streets of Downtown Chicago early Monday. Several Chicago officials this week charged that Foxx’s progressive reforms, such as raising the bar for felony charges in retail theft, have led to repeat offenses in recent months.“These looters acted as if there are no consequences to their behavior, and they based that on what happened previously, that we made a lot of arrests during May and June, and not many of those cases were prosecuted to the fullest extent,” Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown said at a press briefing Monday.“These criminals were emboldened by no consequences in the criminal system,” he added.Chicago Alderman Brendan Reilly, whose ward includes areas where Monday’s unrest occurred, said in a letter to his constituents on Monday that he agreed with Brown.“[It] is clear that there is no accountability or consequences for the widespread lawlessness in the City of Chicago,” he said.The president of the Chicago Fraternal Order of Police also called for looters to be fully prosecuted this week.Following Monday’s arrests, Foxx said those who broke the law would be held accountable. On Thursday, her office announced it had approved 42 out of 43 felony charges sought by the Chicago Police Department stemming from over 100 arrests in the looting. Felony charges included 28 for burglary/looting, six for gun possession, five for aggravated battery/resisting a police officer and one for attempted murder.“I am committed to keeping our communities safe and continuing to collaborate with our law enforcement partners to demand accountability and seek justice for the people of Cook County,” Foxx, who is up for reelection for a second term this fall, said in a statement announcing the charges.Cases are still being reviewed and investigated by law enforcement, and her office will file more felony charges if appropriate, the statement said.In Portland, Oregon, which has seen more than 70 days of nightly protests following George Floyd’s death while in police custody, the city’s top prosecutor has recently faced demands to “hold the rioters accountable.” In an Aug. 7 letter to Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt and Mayor Ted Wheeler, the head of the Portland Police Association, called on Schmidt to “do your job.”“The people committing arson and assault are not peaceful protestors; they are criminals,” Daryl Turner, president of the association, said. “Step up and do your job; hold the rioters accountable. If there is no consequence for crimes from the District Attorney’s office, there is no reason for criminals to stop the chaos.”Days after the letter, Schmidt announced his office would only prosecute cases of demonstrators if the crime involved “deliberate property damage, theft or the use or threat of use of force against another person.” Offenses such as disorderly conduct, criminal trespass and interference with a police officer would otherwise be dismissed.“This policy acknowledges that the factors that lead to the commission of criminal activity during a protest are incredibly complex,” Schmidt said at a press briefing announcing the new policy on Tuesday.Schmidt said the new policy is part of an effort to build trust in the community and better allocate resources. He stressed that “this is not a free pass.”“I will not tolerate deliberate acts of violence against police or anyone else,” he said. “Engage in that type of conduct and you should expect to be prosecuted.”The new policy is retroactive for those who have been arrested during protests in the wake of Floyd’s death in Minneapolis in May. The district attorney’s office said Tuesday it has received about 400 misdemeanor cases related to the protests, a majority of which will likely be subject to the new policy.Portland’s policy is akin to one rolled out in New York during the early days of the city’s protests against police brutality. In early June, Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance announced he would decline to prosecute protesters arrested for unlawful assembly and disorderly conduct. The policy, his office said, was designed to preserve resources for more serious crimes and “reduce racial disparities and collateral consequences in low-level offense prosecutions.”Around that time, Vance’s office also faced pushback for not charging alleged looters with higher burglary offenses, allowing them to be released amid new bail reform measures. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo called on prosecutors to charge the looters with second-degree burglary and said that “they should be held and set bail.” In response, the district attorney’s office said there often wasn’t enough evidence for a more serious charge.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
