Drowning under the weight of the avid media consumer and ex-News of the World editor’s many regular deliveries, staff have sent out an explicit letter: “Andy Coulson has now left Downing Street”, it says bluntly. “I will inform you when to add his successor to your distribution list.” That’ll be one freshly ironed copy of City A.M. coming your way daily, Mr Oliver.AND THE WINNER ISWith just over three weeks to go until this year’s official Academy Awards, Nomura will be challenging its very own glitterati at an Oscars Quiz night tonight, in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust (TCT).More than 240 Nomura employees will walk the red carpet before being quizzed by BBC sports presenter Gabby Logan (pictured left), ably assisted by her very own in-house assistant – Nomura’s joint chief operator of wholesale, Paul Spanswick.The bank hopes to raise over £10,000 tonight towards the creation of a new day centre at University Hospital, London, bringing the firm’s total contribution to the TCT to over £800,000.Proof that even the embarrassment of not knowing any answers to the quiz can be a worthwhile endeavor.

We missed him in UAE. His international career started late but on his debut, against Nepal in Guwahati, it didn’t look like he was playing his first game for India,” AIFF quoted former India captain and current assistant coach Shanmugam Venkatesh as saying.Current India captain Sunil Chhetri, who had made a moving speech about the sacrifices of players like Lyngdoh that allowed the Blue Tigers to participate in the AFC Asian Cup on the eve of India’s first match against Thailand, stated that the latter was a big reason why the team made it to the continental stage.“The whole team and I missed him so much at the Asian Cup. He was an important reason why we qualified in the first case,” said Chhetri.‘Eugene,’ as he is fondly called in the dressing room had become a regular in the Blue Tigers starting XI around four years back, playing a crucial role in the midfield as India topped Group A of the Round 3 of the Qualifiers. However, it was during this campaign that the playmaker picked up an injury and hence was not fit to be picked in the final squad that made it to UAE for the main tournament.“Injury is the last thing that any player thinks of at any given point of time in his career. But when you get a bad injury, you require a lot of mental strength to keep going. It’s a part of the game, and I have learnt to accept that we can’t play football and not get injured. It’s something that everyone has to take into consideration,” said Lyngdoh.The 34-year-old went on to describe how difficult it gets when a player has to sit out due to an injury for the long haul.“Injury is the most difficult thing in football. It plays with your mind, so it’s important to stay strong psychologically. It’s not easy when you see that your teammates are fit and up and running, while you are still injured or recovering. But in the end, what really defines you is how you get back from the injury,” he stated.“I know I’ve lost a couple of years due to that injury, but now I am fit and ready to go out there. Now I have to maintain my fitness levels and be up for selection so that I can play,” said Eugene, as he prepares for the upcoming season in the SC East Bengal colours.

In October last year, BT (LSE: BT.A) shares had pretty much hit rock bottom. The BT share price was down to the lowest in over a decade, having fallen below 100p. Less than eight months later, it is up 82%. It is significantly up (by 62%) even from this time last year when things were not quite as bad for the telecoms company. 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…So what has changed?Why is the BT share price rising?A look at the BT share price trend reveals two specific episodes in the past eight months driving a large and sustained upward jump.The first happened in early November. From the start of the month to its third week, the BT share price gained 28%. No points for guessing why. The stock market rally started at this time. Many battered stocks saw sudden investor interest as the outlook improved. I reckon that BT was one of them. Additionally, the timing coincided with BT’s results for the half-year ending September 30 2020. While the company was impacted by the pandemic, it was also optimistic. This showed up both in its improved guidance for 2020-21 and a reinstatement of dividends from 2021-22. Before the pandemic, BT had a pretty big dividend yield. This was a key reason it was attractive to investors. The next jump in the BT share price came in at the end of February after it had fallen a little in early 2021. This coincided with management changes, even though overall, February was a sluggish time for the FTSE 100 index and it lost 1% of its value.From then, up to today, it has added another 38% to its share price. After falling on its final results’ announcement a few days ago, the BT share price is once again on an upward trajectory. I think this is in spite of the impact of the pandemic continuing to show in its results as it’s maintaining optimism about the next year. Strong operational performanceOperationally too, BT has performed well. EE, the company’s mobile network, has seen a 42% increase in mobile data usage over the past year. Also, 5G has now reached 160 locations, with a ready customer base of 3.2m. Openreach, which maintains telecom networks including cables and poles, is also making progress. Its fibre connections to end-users increased by 73% in the past year. My takeaway for the BT share priceThe one challenge with BT shares, however, is their long-term price performance. The BT share price may be gaining ground now, but it was falling for years before the pandemic happened and it fell even more as the Covid crisis continued. On the whole though, I think a bunch of reasons have now come together to sustainably improve its share price prospects. These include overall investor bullishness, the return of its dividends, expectation of better performance, and an optimistic outlook on the UK economy for 2021 and even 2022.I would expect the BT share price to rise more. I have already bought it, but even if I hadn’t it would be a buy for me.  Click here to claim your free copy of this special investing report now! Manika Premsingh owns shares of BT GROUP PLC ORD 5P.

Free Marzieh Hashemi!

first_imgOn Jan. 13, U.S.-born journalist Marzieh Hashemi was arrested at St. Louis Airport while on her way to visit a sick family member in Denver. Hashemi, an African-American Muslim, has not been charged with a crime.Yet she was transported from St. Louis to Washington, D.C., in chains, stripped of her clothing, given only a tee shirt to wear, and offered pork meals in a disgusting effort by her kidnappers to humiliate and degrade her. Meanwhile, the U.S. government served subpoenas to her children, who live in the United States, to appear before a grand jury.The FBI claims she is being held as a material witness for a criminal case and is not charged with anything. This means that she can be held indefinitely.It is no unusual thing for a Black woman, or any Muslim woman for that matter, to be treated in such a disgusting and criminal way by the so-called U.S. justice system. Some advocates voice legitimate concern that Hashemi’s work on the Black Lives Matter movement is what earmarked her for state repression. It is also likely that her kidnapping and detention are part of the ongoing effort by the U.S. to crack down on the Islamic Republic of Iran.Marzieh Hashemi was studying at the University of Louisiana when she came into contact with international students supporting the Iranian Revolution of 1979. That revolution overthrew the U.S.-backed torturer Mohammed Reza Pahlavi and ushered in an era of self-determination for the Iranian people. After marrying an Iranian, she migrated to Iran to work as a journalist.She is best known as an anchor for PressTV, an international Iranian news syndicate. Her stories prominently featured the Black Lives Matter struggle, letting the world know about the Black community’s own struggle for self-determination. Born and raised in New Orleans, Hashemi was no stranger to white supremacy and racism, and sought to expose these crimes at every opportunity.The fact that the U.S. is holding several Iranian citizens captive as bargaining chips against the Iranian government is not new. However, this is the first time they have kidnapped and held a U.S.-born citizen in relation to the Trump regime’s crackdown on the Islamic Republic.In addition to the U.S. insistence that the Canadian government turn over Meng Wanzhou, the CFO of Chinese company Huawei — allegedly because she violated the genocidal U.S. sanctions against oil-rich Iran — this seems to indicate aggressive maneuvering and a possible ramping-up of hostilities against Iran, one of the strongest bulwarks against U.S. imperialism in the Middle East, Central Asia and worldwide.We join with the rest of the world’s working class and oppressed in demanding the immediate release of Marzieh Hashemi. Online petitions can be found at both here and here.We urge readers to sign them. Let’s not stop until Marzieh is free! Hands off Marzieh, her family, and the Islamic Republic of Iran!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Want justice for George Floyd? Jail & convict killer cops! — a WW commentary

first_imgProtesters at the Minneapolis police department before being assaulted by cops, May 26.May 27 – It was déjà vu, all over again. Another Black man captured on videotape, first, being tortured and, then, being choked to death by a white police officer.  It was almost six years ago when, on July 17, 2014, millions of people watched in horror when 43-year-old Eric Garner was put into a chokehold by a Staten Island, N.Y., white police officer. Garner could be heard saying, repeatedly, “I can’t breathe,” before he died of cardiac arrest.  From that tragic day until the summer of 2019, it took the New York Police Department five years to fire the murderous cop Daniel Pantaleo, who, up until that time, had been on “administrative leave” and still on the payroll.  A grand jury opted not to indict Pantaleo for first degree murder, but Ramsey Orta, a Puerto Rican bystander who videotaped the murder, has been imprisoned since 2016 — his punishment for exposing this heinous crime.  Fast forward to 2020, when on May 25, a 46-year-old Black man in Minneapolis George Floyd — known to his friends and co-workers as “Big Floyd” — was also choked to death by a white police officer, who pressed his knee into Floyd’s neck for nearly eight minutes while three other officers looked on. Floyd, who was handcuffed during the assault, was a close friend of former National Basketball Association player Steven Jackson.  This atrocity was captured on a 10-minute videotape by Darnella Frazier. Floyd could be heard echoing the words of Garner: “I can’t breathe.” He was also heard saying, “My stomach hurts. My neck hurts. Everything hurts. Give me some water or something. Please. Please.” (CNN, May 27)His pleas were ignored until he lay motionless and was pronounced dead at Hennepin County Medical Center. Floyd had been accused of trying to pass a fake $20 bill at a convenience store.  The cop who killed Floyd, Derek Chauvin, and the other three cops with him were fired, but as of May 27 none of them have been arrested or charged with murder — a demand that Floyd’s family and many others have made publicly. Violent attack on protestersOnce the video went viral on social media, hashtags #GeorgeFloyd and #GeorgeFloydwasmurdered became top trends on Twitter. Even when the mayor Jacob Frey announced the firing of the four officers, this did not prevent a multinational crowd of thousands, Black, Latinx, Indigenous and white, from taking to the streets of Minneapolis, despite ongoing concerns around social distancing.   Most of the protesters were wearing masks while chanting, “No justice, no peace,” “Jail killer cops,” “Abolish the police” and “Black Lives Matter.”   Parents even brought their masked children to the march.This defiant act demonstrated how angry and passionately the people wanted to protest this murder, just as Black residents, wearing masks, took to the streets of New Brunswick, Ga., earlier this month over the February murder of Ahmaud Arbery by a white supremacist father and son.   Once the protesters reached the Third Precinct Headquarters, where the four cops were based, they carried out a mini-rebellion, slashing police car tires and breaking precinct windows.  The police retaliated by firing chemical irritants and rubber bullets. To relieve the excruciating pain, people ran into stores to get milk to douse on their stinging eyes. Despite the brutal assault by the police, the protest lasted for hours, until 9 p.m. when rain dispersed the crowd.  Minneapolis protest, May 26.Why abolish the police? When former San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick took a knee during the playing of the national anthem in the 2016-17 football season, he was compelled to take this action following the police murders of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, La., and Philando Castile in a suburb of Saint Paul, Minn., the previous summer.  Since taking this heroic stance, Kaepernick has been “blackballed” by the National Football League owners and hierarchy. He has not taken another snap from center since the end of the 2017 season. Kaepernick was bringing worldwide attention not only to these two particular murders, also caught on video, but also to the rampant epidemic of police brutality and racist injustice — from racial profiling to outright killing of unarmed Black and Brown people, no matter their age, gender or disability. That is why Kaepernick’s actions still resonate today whenever there is a police killing.  The police are not just armed individuals in uniform. They are a deadly force that is part of the repressive state apparatus, like the prisons, courts, military, etc., that exist above society’s laws to protect the interests of the tiny, super-rich clique that administers the profits of Wall Street.  These interests are diametrically opposed to the interests of the billions of workers and oppressed people, a global class who own nothing but are forced to struggle daily for the right to basic human needs to live and thrive — jobs, housing, health care, food, education and much more.  The ruling class depends on the extralegal arm of the state to defend their interests. This is why the police take a hands-off position toward armed neofascists demanding the reopening of businesses during the pandemic. But they are more than willing to attack unarmed protesters demanding justice for victims of police brutality — like Rodney King in 1991, Michael Brown in 2014 and George Floyd this week. People are more and more connecting these dots.  The police do not exist under capitalism to “protect and serve” the people. The police exist to protect and serve the private property of the ruling class by reinforcing, in a repressive manner, white supremacy from the top down, especially the disproportionate war against people of color.   The only real justice for the Eric Garners, Breonna Taylors and George Floyds of the world is to abolish the police. That can only come about with, first, the jailing of killer cops and, ultimately, the abolishment of capitalism through a socialist revolution that once and for all puts workers and oppressed people in power.  FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
