Image source: The Motley Fool Warren Buffett’s latest stock market move has raised some eyebrows on Wall Street. Mr Buffett appears to have reversed a longstanding dislike of gold and invested in this booming sector of the market.Okay, so he isn’t stockpiling gold bars in an underground cavern. But his firm Berkshire Hathaway has invested around $560m in US-listed gold miner Barrick Gold.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…With gold nudging $2,000 per ounce and interest rates in danger of turning negative, Buffett isn’t alone in fancying gold. But what should UK investors buy if they want to follow his lead?Warren Buffett’s latest buyBarrick trades under the New York Stock Exchange ticker GOLD. UK investors may already be familiar with this firm — in 2019, Barrick merged with former FTSE 100 gold miner Randgold Resources. Ex-Randgold boss Mark Bristow is now chief executive of the combined company.If Randgold was still a UK-listed stock, I’d probably suggest buying it. Mr Bristow had an impressive record of developing large, profitable gold mines in Africa. His company generated a lot of cash and paid useful dividends.However, Randgold’s merger with Barrick resulted in the combined group losing its UK listing. If you’re like me and prefer to invest in UK shares, then you’ll need to look elsewhere for gold mining exposure.Fortunately, the London market is home to several other dividend-paying gold miners.A FTSE 100 gold stock I’d buyThe only pureplay gold miner left in the FTSE 100 is Russian firm Polymetal International (LSE: POLY). Although I’m usually cautious about investing in Russia, I’d be quite comfortable owning Polymetal shares.This £9.5bn group has been listed on the UK market for nearly nine years and has a solid record of profitability and regular dividends. Thanks to the 30% rise in the gold price over the last year, Polymetal’s earnings have been rising strongly.Analysts expect the company’s profits to double to $928m in 2020 and then to climb a further 21% to $1,113m in 2021. These forecasts leave the shares looking pretty affordable, trading on a multiple of 13.5 times 2020 forecast earnings. There’s also a dividend yield of 4%.If Warren Buffett is right and the gold price remains stable at current levels, I reckon Polymetal International could be a profitable addition to a UK share portfolio.I think Warren Buffett might buy this stockGold doesn’t generate earnings or income. But gold miners can generate attractive returns for their shareholders. I suspect this is why Berkshire Hathaway has invested in a gold miner rather than buying actual gold.One UK-listed gold miner that has a strong record of returning cash to shareholders is FTSE 250 firm Centamin (LSE: CEY). This group operates the Sukari mine in Egypt, which boasts an all-in sustaining cost of just $899 per ounce. Shareholder profits rose by 280% to $75m during the first half, as the price of gold climbed.Centamin has no debt and the firm’s latest results show net cash of $367m at the end of June, after paying an interim dividend of $69m in May.If you’re positive on the outlook for gold, then I don’t think Centamin stock looks too expensive. At current levels the firm’s shares trade on around 17 times forecast earnings and offer a dividend yield of 4.9%. I rate Centamin as a buy. 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.

Arts fundraising initiative described as having positive impact

first_img Tagged with: arts Funding Ireland Training A review of the ‘Raise’ fundraising initiative for the arts in the Republic of Ireland should be expanded, according to a report by government.The Raise initiative was launched in 2012 to build capacity for arts organisations to fundraise effectively. The project, which cost nearly €1 million over two years, was designed to offer organisations the tools, skills and resources to significantly increase the investment they secure from private sources.Raise, funded by the Arts Council, set out to employ eight fundraisers at arts organisations who received the money to pay for a full-time fundraiser. The fundraisers had an annual target of €250,000 each year for the following three years.The review, by the Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Heather Humphreys TD, describes the Raise initiative as very positive and as having ‘proved successful with organisations involved recording an increase from €1.7 million in private (philanthropic) income in 2012 to €2.2 million and €2.6 million in 2013 and 2014 respectively, an increase of 41%’.The report states that the Arts Council expects that there will be further increases in private income to both the pilot organisations and also in future years to new participating organisations as the Raise project is extended.The value for money and policy review – the first of its kind to be carried out on the Arts Council – has commended the Council on developing the Raise initiative.

Figures show Snowdogs trail contributed £10m to local economy

first_img Tagged with: arts hospice Research / statistics NGI statistics have shown that last Autumn’s Snowdogs by the Sea sculpture trail contributed £10 million to the local economy in Brighton & Hove.The Snowdogs by the Sea trail raised funds for Martlets Hospice and was organised by the hospice and Wild in Art. According to the NGI statistics, which was commissioned by Wild in Art, visitor numbers were in excess of 350,000 with more than 14.6 million social media impressions for the hashtag #brightonsnowdogs and media coverage worth over £450,000.In total, Snowdogs by the Sea raised £310,000 for Martlets Hospice and achieved new levels of awareness for the local charity. At the end of the trail, over ten thousand people watched the auction live on the Snowdogs by the Sea Facebook page and six thousand attended the farewell event to say goodbye. One hundred percent of the residents asked said they were proud to have the trail in their area, with 99% of visitors to the trail rating their experience as excellent or good.The trail also attracted visitors from outside of the city and 19% of respondents stayed overnight whilst visiting the trial. The trail also encouraged locals to explore their own city, with 42% of visitors from Brighton & Hove saying that they had visited a new attraction or place as a result of visiting the trail.The Snowdogs by the Sea app saw over 125,000 scans of each Snowdog’s unique ‘QR’ code, which ‘unlocked’ special offers from its sponsor, ranging from deals and discounts at local restaurants and shops, to competitions and prize draws.One in three people questioned had visited the entire trail, with the majority doing so on foot, with the total distance walked around the Snowdog Trail approximately 2.6 million miles or the equivalent of walking around the earth 105 times. 85% of respondents agreed that the Snowdogs trail had encouraged them to get outdoors more, with 81% saying it encouraged them to walk further than usual. This supports a report released earlier this month by the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Arts, Health and Wellbeing into the benefits of arts and culture on health and wellbeing. It found that after engaging with the arts, 77% of people engaged in more physical activity and 82% enjoyed greater wellbeing.

The engagement we have seen from individuals and local businesses has been phenomenal. We set out to create something that would bring life to the city, inspiring people to get involved with Martlets and to connect with the story of The Snowman and the Snowdog – a tale of loss, love, memories and kindness at its heart, which mirrors our work at the hospice.

Students create documentary on sex-trafficking in Fort Worth

first_imgLinkedin Twitter Linkedin World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Rifle honors seniors on Saturday Lindsay Tomaini A guide to understanding collegiate rifle printA small group of students spent much of this semester tackling a topic that many students might be unaware of: human trafficking.The class partnered with The Net, a local organization that offers resources to survivors of sexual-exploitation, human-trafficking and those who are experiencing homelessness in Fort Worth to produce the documentary called “Worthy of More.” The class of seven spent the semester filming, interviewing and editing their footage to create the film. “We interviewed the founder and creator of The Net, other people from The Net, and I was able to be there when some of the survivors of human-trafficking were interviewed, which was super touching and inspiring,” said Sinai Diaz, the producer of the documentary. “ I hope that comes across as inspiring in the documentary because it was very intense and powerful.”Diaz has worked on narrative films before with actors, but she has never done anything documentary style. “Things are often unexpected and things happen that are unexpected, so you have to always be thinking a couple steps ahead,” she said. Director Juan Ojeda said the film gets its name from what Melissa Ice, the founder of The Net, emphasized throughout the process. “People are always worthy of more than what they have been dealing with or what they have been given,”  he said. Ojeda and Robinson look observe the set-up of the interviews.The class was taught by professor Charity Robinson. “I love to teach this class because I get the opportunity every semester to watch students grow in positions and get to do work that directly applies to what they would like to do after graduation,” Robinson said. Robinson said many challenges came with having a small class, but it also worked really well because everybody on the crew put in their 100% every day.“Being a student here at TCU, we have all heard countless times that we are in a bubble, and it’s very true,” said Ojeda. “For students that go to TCU, it’s a good way for them to know what’s going on in their backyard right now, even if it’s just their temporary home for college.”Diaz conducts an interview. When the class finally watched their final product, they were all very proud of what they had accomplished.“There wasn’t anything to critique. It felt very complete, and it touched on everything that I was envisioning from the beginning,” said Fuentes. “Everything that I had looked over as a writer from my notes was in there, and it was just perfect.”The documentary will air next semester on Jan. 24 and will teach TCU students about their community.“I want TCU students to know that it is something that our class worked really hard on, but these problems are also happening right here and now,” Diaz said.

Call to avoid media vengeance by civil war victors

first_img April 19, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Call to avoid media vengeance by civil war victors News Côte d’IvoireAfrica News RSF_en Threats against journalists in run-up to Côte d’Ivoire’s presidential election “The government must concern itself only with justice, not score-settling,” it said. If it was necessary to punish those, notably at RTI, who preached hatred, it would be “dangerous” to conduct a purge that would seem like revenge, it said. “The new authorities must avoid repeating the past mistake of trampling on the opposition media and tolerating the excesses of pro-government media outlets.” News October 29, 2020 Find out more RSF’s recommendations for protecting press freedom during Côte d’Ivoire’s elections Follow the news on Côte d’Ivoire Reportscenter_img November 27, 2020 Find out more Help by sharing this information Côte d’IvoireAfrica Pro-Gbagbo newspapers not yet back on saleLe Patriote was the first national daily to reappear, on 15 April, and others, including Fraternité Matin, pro-Ouattara papers Nord-Sud and Le Mandat and independent papers L’Intelligent d’Abidjan and L’Inter were back on sale three days later. However, the offices of the pro-Gbagbo dailies Notre Voie and Le Temps were ransacked, their equipment destroyed and the homes of some of their journalists visited by Ouattara supporters, and these papers have not yet reappeared. Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders warned today against “unacceptable and disgraceful” attempts by supporters of new President Alassane Ouattara to take physical revenge on several journalists who were close to ousted President Laurent Gbagbo and have been forced to go into hiding. “We are very concerned that the new government may not be able to control their supporters and we call on Mr Ouattara to publicly urge them to desist and to respect people with different views,” the media freedom organisation’s secretary-general, Jean-François Julliard, said. “He will be held responsible for their actions.”Manhunt victimsJournalists from all sides in the country’s four-month civil war have been threatened, harassed and prevented from doing their job, but for the past week Ouattara supporters have been hunting down pro-Gbagbo journalists. Reporters Without Borders learns that a hit-list of eight journalists to be killed is circulating in Abidjan, including staff of the government daily Fraternité Matin, Radio-Télévision Ivoirienne (RTI) and the pro-Gbagbo media. Some members of the pro-Gbagbo National Press Council (CNP) have also gone underground.New government wants to prosecute journalistsThe Ouattara government has said it will prosecute some journalists for their part in the Gbagbo regime’s propaganda operation. Reporters Without Borders approves of punishing those who seriously went beyond acceptable limits but is concerned about how those limits are defined. Nearly all media outlets behaved badly during and since last October and November’s election campaign, according to the press freedom organisation. The CNP, still chaired by Eugène Dié Kacou, has condemned abuses by each side and Reporters Without Borders, which criticised the behaviour during the campaign of Notre Voie (pro-Gbagbo), Le Nouveau Réveil (supporting ex-President Henri Konan Bédié) and Le Patriote (pro-Ouattara), said today that media outlets close to the new regime “must be subject as well to criticism and the law.” to go further Organisation The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa October 16, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more

The new puppies were part of three litters born to three separate collies who were found deserted on the street in Pasadena.According to Pasadena Humane Society Communications Associate Jamie Holeman, the border collies were assumed to be dumped by the same person over the last two weeks.“These collies were found on the street in the area near Caltech as well as in the area around Hastings Ranch,” She said. She also noted that while they couldn’t be sure, the dogs, who appeared to be approximately a year old, looked similar, and seemed to be related. All of the pregnant collies were found by Good Samaritans, who called the Humane Society, said Holeman.The wandering pregnant collies were only days from giving birth, said Holemna, who also reported that they were placed with foster families who will care for them in their homes until the puppies are old enough for formal adoption, in approximately two months..While this type of dumping is not unusual, Holeman said that case stood out because the dogs “were very, very pregnant, when they were dumped on the street and all three dogs gave birth within just a few days after being found.”Though the situation was dire at the time, Holeman said the new puppies will all find homes, as well as the mother dogs.“We just really want to urge members of the community that if you are unable to care for your pets, please don’t abandon them in the street,” she added. “It’s dangerous for the dogs, and it’s cruel.” She advised instead for pet owners to contact their local Humane Society,“Just, please, please don’t abandon your pets,” said Holeman.The Pasadena Humane Society is at 361 South Raymond Avenue, Pasadena.

Guildhall restoration work to begin in Derry

first_img Work on the restoration of the Guildhall is set to commence this month, with Mayor Cllr Colum Eastwood saying the £3 million project will help to sustain the building for future generations.The Guildhall will, he says, be the focus of the city’s celebrations in 2013 when it assumes the mantle of UK City of Culture.The project will see extensive external restoration work carried out the stonework, roof, windows and stained glass, with the clock also being restored. The work will also see the addition of new steps, and a ramp to the entrance off Guildhall Square.Derry City Council says the Guildhall is an iconic building and the political hub of the city, and was the focus of global attention in June when the report of the Saville Inquiry into the events of Bloody Sunday was published.The work is expected to cost in the region of £3m and continue until early 2012.The building will remain open, but access may be restricted at certain times. The council is promising to keep inconvenience to the public to a minimum.
