Why Sirius Minerals investors should take a hard look at Anglo American Enter Your Email Address Coal is on its way out. Demand for copper is set to grow, and I think demand for iron is heading upwards too. Then there is potash — a combination of potassium carbonate and potassium salt, which is used as a fertiliser. Together, the potential in copper, iron ore, and possibly potash, are the reason why I think Anglo American (LSE: AAL) could be that rare thing, a good income stock with growth potential.Anglo American has made a bid to buy Sirius Minerals (LSE:SXX), the British company desperately trying to raise money to develop a potash mine in North Yorkshire. The story of the British potash company and the lesson for investors is now well known, but just because the Sirius Minerals share price has fallen by around 90% in the last four years or so, it doesn’t mean the company’s core product is no good. Its problem was always that it needed money, lots of money to develop the mine, and was probably just too small to convince investors it had what it takes to make the project a success.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…Now the Anglo American bid for Sirius Minerals could potentially save the mine. Should the mine one day fulfil its potential, it would be a good addition to Anglo American. While the deal may prove to be make or break for the potash mine, it’s just another deal for Anglo American.The mining giant’s big problem is its reliance on coal. Anglo American has been moving into other areas and weaning itself off coal mines for some time, meaning that the company looks quite different than it did 10 years ago. The bid for Sirius Minerals is further evidence of this, and the company is investing in other areas too, such as the development of a copper mine in Peru.It’s Anglo American’s non-coal-based mines that make it interesting. Recently, Deutsche Bank predicted a rebound in global demand for metals in 2020 and highlighted Anglo American as one of the potential beneficiaries.In 2019 the company generated $2.6bn in revenue from copper, but this could increase dramatically with the new Peruvian mine. Copper is especially interesting because of its importance in electric cars and charging stations.Last year, Anglo American’s revenue from iron ore was close to $4bn. I believe demand for iron is also set to rise in the long run. I am expecting massive new infrastructure projects worldwide as governments realise they can borrow at close to 0% and that infrastructure programmes can provide economic stimulus while raising long-term productivity. (Interestingly, coking coal, which is used in blast furnaces and is still a major Anglo American product, may be the last application of coal to go.)Anglo American is also a big dividend payer, and the problem with many income stocks is that they operate in mature industries with limited growth potential and face disruptive threats from new technologies. Anglo American, with its traditional emphasis on coal, could so easily have been another example of such a company. Last year, Anglo American’s coal output was worth $3.2bn – important but far from vital. It’s the combination of investments into growth areas and good dividends that I believe make Anglo American so appealing.

At present only US nonprofits are listed, but the option to support UK charities won’t be far behind.Facebook users have been using the ‘social utility’ site for some time to promote charities and fundraising activities, forming themselves into online groups. The ‘Causes’ application, one of a range that Facebook’s 25 million users can choose to add for free, takes that a stage further by allowing users to support any 501(c)(3) organisation listed by nonprofit financial information service GuideStar.Facebook must now rank as a key platform for US fundraisers to include in their online fundraising strategy. In February 2007 it was the sixth most visited site in the USA and 18th most visited site in the world.The Causes application (or ‘app’) of course includes a social element to giving or supporting a charity: users can keep track of how much they have donated, how much their friends have donated, and how many ‘members’ they have recruited. It is in effect, member get member/donor get donor fundraising. On top of that you get electronic plaqueing, or donor recognition every time you sign up to a cause: your name and photo is included in the list of supporters on that nonprofit’s page.Donations are processed by San Francisco-based nonprofit Justgive.org, not to be confused with the UK-based online donations service Justgiving.com, whose US operation is called Firstgiving.com. It’s creators explain that for a $100 donation, $95.50 goes to the nonprofit, $3 goes to Justgive.org, and $1.50 goes to Project Agape, the Berkeley, California-based organisation that built the app.Its co-founders Sean Parker and Joe Green say that they are aiming for “equal opportunity activism.” By this they mean “trying to level the playing field by empowering individuals to change the world… We’re democratizing activism by empowering activists with an arsenal of tools for users of Facebook who want to leverage their network on Facebook to effect positive change.”They seem a little surprised that it has taken so long for social network sites to develop an application like causes. “Leveraging real world social networks is an important part of activism, fundraising, and political campaigning”, say the founders on the app’s page. “Given all this, it’s a bit surprising that online social networks haven’t been more aggressively leveraged until now.”Paulette Maehara, president of the US Association of Fundraising Professionals, told her members recently: “Because of the social networking aspect of Facebook, charities and fundraisers don’t have to try to reach everyone on the site, but just a few people. By identifying and cultivating champions, and having them post information and links on their profile pages, organizations can reach hundreds and thousands of people very quickly.“But it’s a process and a technology that many fundraisers will need to learn and get familiar with quickly.”A UK version of the app is likely. Organisations that might provide the registered charity information and online donation services include Guidestar UK, Charities Aid Foundation, Justgiving and Bmycharity.Nevertheless, UK charities with 501(c)3 operations in the US can benefit now. For example, donations to Comic Relief can be made via Facebook to its US arm, Charity Projects Entertainment Fund.

January 20, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Large demo in Moscow in homage to Anastasia Baburova and Stanislav Markelov News Receive email alerts Call issued by : Convoi Syndical pour la Tchétchénie, Comité Tchétchénie, Assemblée Européenne des Citoyens, Cedetim, FIDH, LDH, RSF, Comité Sokolov, Salp Reflex No Pasaran, Maison de l’Europe et d’Orient, Marches Européennes, NPA, Les Verts, Parti de Gauche… RSF_en News June 2, 2021 Find out more More than 1,000 people took part in yesterday’s rally in Moscow in homage to journalist Anastasia Baburova and human rights lawyer Stanislav Markelov on the first anniversary of their murder. Young anti-fascist activists, representatives of human rights NGOs and above all ordinary citizens made up the unusually large crowd that defied freezing temperatures and marched with photos of Baburova and Markelov and other murdered journalists and activists such as Anna Politkovskaya and Natalia Estemirova.The mayor of Moscow had finally given permission for rallies at the departure point and finishing point but not for a march between the two. As a result, the police intervened to disperse the demonstrators during the march and to confiscate photos and posters.A large number of police also intervened at the finishing point, on Boulevard Chistoprudny, interrupting the reading of an appeal by the organising committee and grabbing the megaphone, leading to clashes and further arrests. The police said around 20 arrests were made but witnesses said more than 50 demonstrators were arrested. All were released within three hours without being charged.One of the organisers, Lev Ponomarev, the head of the NGO “For Human Rights,” nonetheless received notification of an “administrative violation” for exceeding the permitted number of demonstrators.Parallel acts of solidarity also took placed in St Petersburg, Yekaterinburg, Kazan, Samara, Omsk and Petrozavodsk and in cities abroad, including Paris.Images of the Moscow demonstration can be seen on the websites of Kommersant, Novaya Gazeta, Indymedia, LiveJournal…Or see the portfolio at the bottom of this page (Novaya Gazeta, Rubahin)—————————19.01.2010 – Support persecuted journalists and human rights activists in Russia !After initially banning it, the Moscow authorities have finally given the go-ahead for a march today in Moscow in homage to human rights lawyer Stanislav Markelov and the young Novaya Gazeta reporter Anastasia Baburova, who were gunned down on a central Moscow street exactly one year ago.The march is being organised by the ad hoc “19 January Committee” to protest against the criminalisation of civil society groups in Russia and the failure to punish acts of violence by far-right-wing groups. Similar marches are being organised in other Russian and European cities.In Paris, Reporters Without Borders and many other human rights groups are relaying an appeal (see below) for support for activists in Russia who are facing intimidation, physical attacks and death threats.After hopes were raised by the arrests of two alleged members of a neo-Nazi movement in early November, the investigation into the murders of Markelov and Baburova seems to have stalled again. The alleged shooter, Nikita Tikhonov, has retracted his initial confession, blaming it on the mistreatment he received at the hands of his interrogators and the threats they made against his wife.In a 29 December submission to the prosecutor’s office, he said he was arrested 24 hours before the time given in the police report and was beaten all night. He was shown in the black mask he wore at the time of his arrest in order to hide the marks of the blows he had received. A judge has ordered that Tikhonov and the other suspect, Yevgeniya Khasis, be held until 19 April pending further investigation.The Federal Security Service (FSB) said it suspected that the same neo-Nazi group was responsible for some of the other political murders that have taken place in recent years. While hailing an apparent determination to finally combat extreme right-wing groups which had previously taken advantage of official laxness, human rights activists have voiced concern that a scapegoat has been found to mask the continuing impunity for such acts of violence.Baburova and Markelov were gunned down after a news conference at which Markelov had condemned the early release of Yuri Budanov, an army colonel who was sentenced to 10 years in prison in 2003 for strangling a young Chechen woman. As a journalist, Baburova covered neo-Nazi movement and the resurgence of racism.(Photo: AFP)——————————Call for justice and solidarity one year after murders of Stanislav Markelov and Anastasia BaburovaRally at the Fontaine des Innocents in Les Halles, in the 1st arrondissement of ParisTuesday, 19 January at 5:30 p.m. Two Russian journalists persecuted for investigating police corruption May 5, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Russia Organisation Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown RussiaEurope – Central Asia News RussiaEurope – Central Asia As the French government begins celebrating the Year of Russia in France, we, international solidarity activists, trade unionists, civil society representatives, human rights activists and friends of those who defend their rights in Russia and the Caucasus, call for a rally in Paris at the same time as the rallies taking place in Russia in protest against political murders.We want to use this occasion to condemn the repression, murders and physical violence of which they have been so many victims in the past year in Russia, including the two who were murdered on 19 January 2009, Stanislav Markelov, a lawyer who defended civil society activists, trade unionists and human rights activists, and Novaya Gazeta journalist Anastasia Baburova.The victims of the past few months have also included anti-fascist activists Feodor Filatov and Ivan Khutorskoy, Memorial representative in Grozny Natalia Estemirova, Zarema Sadulayeva of the Chechen NGO “Save Our Generation” and her husband, and head of Ingush opposition Maksharip Aushev. The victims of the dozens of murders and hundreds of racist attacks that have taken place in Russian, including Sergei Nikolayev and Bair Sambuyev, must also be added to this list.We take this opportunity to point out that armed gangs, paramilitary militias and racists continue to act with complete impunity; that the state itself has been responsible for some of this violence, and when it has not been responsible, the judicial and police authorities have been the accomplices because of their inaction and their lies.

Precise knowledge of the phase relationship between climate changes in the two hemispheres is a key for understanding the Earth’s climate dynamics. For the last glacial period, ice core studies1, 2 have revealed strong coupling of the largest millennial-scale warm events in Antarctica with the longest Dansgaard–Oeschger events in Greenland3, 4, 5 through the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation6, 7, 8. It has been unclear, however, whether the shorter Dansgaard–Oeschger events have counterparts in the shorter and less prominent Antarctic temperature variations, and whether these events are linked by the same mechanism. Here we present a glacial climate record derived from an ice core from Dronning Maud Land, Antarctica, which represents South Atlantic climate at a resolution comparable with the Greenland ice core records. After methane synchronization with an ice core from North Greenland9, the oxygen isotope record from the Dronning Maud Land ice core shows a one-to-one coupling between all Antarctic warm events and Greenland Dansgaard–Oeschger events by the bipolar seesaw6. The amplitude of the Antarctic warm events is found to be linearly dependent on the duration of the concurrent stadial in the North, suggesting that they all result from a similar reduction in the meridional overturning circulation.
November 4, 2019 /Sports News – National Washington Nationals celebrate World Series win at the White House — with a political tinge FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailOfficial White House Photo by Andrea Hanks(WASHINGTON) — The Washington Nationals continued to celebrate their triumphant World Series win before thousands at the White House on Monday — as one player donned a “Make America Great Again” hat and another skipped the ceremony for political reasons. Almost right off the bat, Trump brought up the impeachment inquiry against him, as he discussed how popular the Nationals became throughout their season.“America fell in love with the Nats baseball,” Trump said. “They just fell in love with Nats baseball. That’s all they wanted to talk about. That and impeachment. I like Nats baseball much more.”As Trump introduced players and staff one by one, he brought catcher Kurt Suzuki to the lectern. Suzuki threw on a “Make America Great Again” hat.“I love you all,” Suzuki said. “I love you all. Thank you.”Trump hugged him. “What a job he did,” he said. “I didn’t know that was gonna happen.”Trump said the crowd on the south lawn, which the White House estimated was 5,300 people, was a record. “We’ve never had this many people on the front lawn of the White House,” he told the crowd.Running through the story of the Nationals’ season, Trump congratulated the team, who he said brought the World Series trophy “back to America’s capital.” He called the team’s owners, the Lerner family, “great people,” praised general manager Mike Rizzo, manager Dave Martinez and the other coaches and players, saying, “they’re all here.”But in fact, not all were there.Reliever Sean Doolittle told The Washington Post days ago he would not attend the ceremony.“There’s a lot of things, policies that I disagree with, but at the end of the day, it has more to do with the divisive rhetoric and the enabling of conspiracy theories and widening the divide in this country,” Doolittle said.There were at least 16 other players not in attendance, based on a list of attendees released by the White House. It was unclear why the others missed the ceremony including star third baseman Anthony Rendon.When the president praised players one by one during Monday’s ceremony, he did not mention Doolittle or Rendon.The president attended Game 5 of the World Series in Washington on Oct. 27, and was booed by fans in attendance. Some chanted, “Lock him up!”“What a month,” pitcher Max Scherzer told the crowd. “What a magical month.”After pitcher Stephen Strasburg, who this weekend became a free agent, spoke, attendees chanted, “four more years!” Trump added, “I’m going to consider that four more World Series wins.”First baseman Ryan Zimmerman handed the president a personalized Nationals jersey and thanked Trump “for keeping everyone here safe in our country and continuing to America the greatest country to live in the world.”A military band played “Baby Shark” — the team’s unofficial anthem — as the players and coaches emerged from the White House at the start of the ceremony.“That turned out to be a very, very powerful little tune,” Trump saidCopyright © 2019, ABC Audio.
