As we’ve seen already this year, stock markets can make sharp moves in a very short space of time. Trying to buy and sell around these events and make a profit is basically impossible. Staying invested can allow people like me the ability to ride out short-term moves, aiming to make a million. A Stocks and Shares ISA will aid me in this pursuit by allowing me to take profits without paying tax. The ISA is a shelter from capital gains tax, so I’ll be able to keep all of the dividends and the profit I make when I sell a stock. With the desire to invest to make a million, every penny helps. In some cases, it’s far more than pennies being saved here, an ISA can save me thousands of pounds!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…Regular investingI mentioned at the beginning that investing in volatile markets is hard if I’m trying to time the market. Did I know the FTSE 100 was going to trade below 5,000 points when we started 2020? Definitely not. Although I like to think of myself as being an astute investor, I can’t predict the future. So the first point in my strategy to make a million is to invest regularly. £1,000 a month being drip-fed into the market allows me to avoid missing out on times when the FTSE 100 is low. At the same time, it also puts less pressure on me to time the market, given that I’ll be investing again next month.Another benefit of regular investing within an ISA is I get to benefit from compound investing. This is when funds are allowed to accumulate over time. This can happen in several ways. For example, I can use my dividends to buy more shares that earn dividends. Or imagine I buy a stock for £1,000 and sell it when the value is £1,100. I then take this and invest in another stock. If the share price of the second one goes up, I’m making a profit on the full £1,100, even though originally I only put in £1,000 of my own money. This is because the accumulated profit compounds, allowing me to get closer to my goal of making a million.Is it actually possible?If I invested £1,000 a month and assumed an 8% annual return on the funds, I’d reach the million mark after 25 years. In the grand scheme of things, this isn’t that long at all. Depending on the age an investor starts this strategy, it could mean early retirement at 50 or 60 years of age. One of the best elements, I feel, of this investing strategy to make a million is that it doesn’t have to just stop at a million. I can always dip in and take some funds out of the ISA, and leave the rest invested. The further down the line that is, the more taking out a few thousand won’t make a difference. Then I can continue to leave the funds to compound from dividends and accumulated profits, taking the balance to over a million.  Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Anthracnose leaf blight starts at the top and works its way down the plant and stalk rot eventually comes in to play, according to agronomist Bill Mullen. He found the disease in a corn field this week between Greensburg and Batesville just off I-74.“All these black lesions on this plant are the spores. When you look at this plant this is the base and this node is rotten. Second one is rotten, third one is rotten, fourth and fifth ones are rotten, and this pith is really drying out. So basically we’ve got some stalk issues out here and this is a big concern that I have trying to get the crop harvested. We know it’s not going to be able to stand out there, especially if we get any heavy winds.”You can see what Mullen found in the new HAT video with the Seed Consultants agronomist. In the non-GMO corn field he also found corn plants invaded by European corn borer, plants that were dropping ears because of the pest.“One thing I’ve been seeing a lot of this year, especially in conventional corn is the presence of European corn borer. Pretty much 2nd generation is doing some damage out there. When I was walking in the field I saw several dropped ears and in this ear the corn borer went into the shank and normally it can go up into the ear itself. With this ECB damage, nice size ear like this, and with the weak shank there’s only one way it’s going to go. It’s going to go down on the ground.”Mullen’s message is a familiar one. Prioritize at risk fields and get them harvested as soon as is feasible.

Kurdish daily’s former editor convicted on terrorist propaganda charge

first_img Reporters Without Borders firmly condemns the “insane” sentence of 166 years and six months in prison which a court in the southeastern city of Diyarbakir passed yesterday on Vedat Kursun, the former editor of Turkey’s only Kurdish-language daily, Azadiya Welat.Kursun was convicted under articles 314-3 and 220-6 of the criminal code and article 7-2 of the anti-terrorism law on charges of membership of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), regarded by the Turkish government as a terrorist organisation, and spreading PKK propaganda.“This sentence is absurd,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We support Kursun’s colleagues, who say this was a political trial. We regret the attitude of the Turkish judicial authorities, who are deliberately violating the rights that are protected by the European Convention on Human Rights although Turkey is a signatory.”In the final hearing, Kursun’s lawyers tried to make the jury understand that the conviction requested by prosecutor Yavup Var violated laws protecting freedom of expression. They also insisted that Turkey should respect the undertakings it has given to the Council of Europe.Kursun had been facing a possible sentence of 525 years in prison. Although the sentence he was given was much less, it is no less absurd and undermines the credibility not only of this court but also of Turkey’s entire judicial system.Reporters Without Borders calls for Kursun’s release and urges the European Union to condemn this verdict.Held since his arrest at Istanbul airport on 30 January, Kursun was given such a long sentence in part because he was convicted on a total of 103 counts of publishing PKK propaganda. An additional 12 years for membership of the PKK rounded off the total of 166 years in jail for just doing his job as a journalist. Aged 36, he would have to live to the age of 202 to complete the sentence.Azadiya Welat has repeatedly been the target of prosecutions and seizures of its issues. Ozan Kilinç, who took over as its editor after Kursun was tried and convicted on similar charges in 2009, was himself sentenced to 21 years and 3 months in prison on 10 February.

OHS Chorale performs with Foreigner

first_img Twitter Pinterest Facebook Wagner NoelForeignerFor the second year, some members of the Odessa High School Chorale will sing with the rock group Foreigner as they perform “I Want to Know What Love Is” during a concert at 8 p.m. Monday at the Wagner Noel Performing Arts Center.Doors open at 6:30 p.m.Seth Marsh and Emilie Bell, both 17-year-old seniors, sang with the group last year.“It’s a good experience to be able to be with a live band because we’re not used to that. We’re used to doing choir music,” Marsh said. WhatsApp From left, Feleciti Rodriguez and Xan Carrasco rehearse. The Odessa High School Chorale were practicing the Foreigner song “I Want to Know What Love Is,” Thursday in their choir room. The Chorale is going to perform the song with Foreigner next week at the Wagner Noel Performing Arts Center. WhatsApp From left, Erin Baeza and Tahis Lamas sing the song for the first time.

Marsh said you don’t look at the people.“You live in the moment,” he said.On the other hand, Bell said she was nervous.“It’s scary with all those people,” Bell said.But the band was cool and the experience was fun, she said.Marsh said the singer and guitarist focused on the students the most.“They were so loose with it. They were going with the flow. It was nice they weren’t super serious. Even if somebody messed up, which I think someone did, they didn’t turn around like, ‘What?!’ They went off of it. They knew what they were doing,” Seth said.Bell plans to attend the University of Texas of the Permian Basin and transfer to Hardin-Simmons University to earn a teaching degree and ultimately a PhD and teach voice.Marsh plans to attend Texas Tech University and become an engineer.“But singing is always going to be a part of my life. It’s not like I’m going to stop singing after this. I’m probably not going to sing in choirs. I’ll probably do stuff like family gatherings,” Marsh said.Head Choir Director Jayson Hart will be leading the group for the first time. He was the assistant director last year.There are 35 chorale members, but he can only take 25 due to stage restrictions, he said. Last year, the chorale won a concert to sing with the band, but he got an email earlier in the year requesting the chorale sing with Foreigner again.“They’re very excited about it,” Hart said of his students. “It’s a great way to top off our season of contest, which we finished yesterday (Wednesday) and we did well on stage yesterday with a Division I.”Being able to take the stage with a classic rock band, he said, is “awesome.”Asked if he thought the students would be flat after their Division I win, Hart said the feeling is different with the Foreigner performance.“I think they’re going to do a fantastic job and have fun,” Hart said.Michael Bluestein, who has been the keyboardist with Foreigner for 10 years, said it’s always entertaining when the students are on stage with the seven-member band.“It’s always fun when we get those kids up there because they’re so psyched to be getting on a big stage like that (with) their parents out there. I always look forward to their excitement,” Bluestein said in a telephone interview.The youthful energy is always great and something the band can feed off of, he noted.“It’s contagious, so I’ve found when they’re bopping around you can see the giggles. You can see them getting captivated and taken in by the moment. That’s infectious and we feel it,” Bluestein said.

The court also considered the question whether “sexual history”, “sexual character” or the very “sexuality” of a rape survivor can be used to paint her as sexually active and unchaste and use this to discredit her credibility; and whether her promiscuous background can be made basis to assume that she must have consented to the act?Medical Tests Not To Determine Virginity Or chastity Referring to Medical literature, the court observed that Medical language of MLC is riddled with gender biases and immediately calls into question the character of the rape survivor. The court said that the examination of a rape victim by the medical practitioners and use of the medical evidence collected in such examination by the courts should be made only to determine the question whether or not the alleged victim was subjected to rape, and not to determine her virginity or chastity. It said:Due to a combination of lack of training, inexperience the medico-legal certificate’s (MLC) casually report the two finger test, to show that the vagina can admit phallus-like fingers to conclude that the survivor was sexually active at the time of the assault or a ‘virgin” as perceived by the society. Neither of these tests have any basis in medical science. Medical language of MLC is riddled with gender biases and immediately calls into question the character of the rape survivor. It is used to support the assumption that a sexually active woman would easily consent for sexual activity with anyone. The World Health Organization (WHO), the Office of the High Commissioner of the United Nations and the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women in “Eliminating Virginity Testing: An Interagency Statement” proclaim, “the practice is a violation of the victim’s human rights and is associated with both immediate and longterm consequences that are detrimental to her physical, psychological and social well-being.” In view of this firm and reliable Interagency Statement, examination of a rape victim by the medical practitioners and use of the medical evidence collected in such examination by the courts should be made only to determine the question whether or not the alleged victim was subjected to rape, and not to determine her virginity or chastity.If the victim had lost her virginity earlier, it does not give to anyone the right to rape herThe bench added that the courts should also discontinue the use of painfully intrusive and inappropriate expressions, like “habituated to sex”, “woman of easy virtue”, “woman of loose moral character”, and “non-virgin”, for the alleged rape victims even if they find that the charge of rape is not proved against the accused.  Dragging sexual history of the rape survivor into the case by making observations about her body including observations like “the vagina admits two fingers easily” or “old ruptured hymen” is an affront to the reputation and honour of the rape survivor and violates Article 4(2)(a) of the Constitution, which mandates that no action detrimental to the body and reputation of person shall be taken except in accordance with law. Similarly Article 14 of our Constitution mandates that dignity shall be inviolable, therefore, reporting sexual history of a rape survivor amounts to discrediting her independence, identity, autonomy and free choice thereby degrading her human worth and offending her right to dignity guaranteed under Article 14 of the Constitution which Right to dignity under Article 14 of the Constitution is an absolute right and not subject to law. Dignity means human worth: simply put, every person matters. No life is dispensable, disposable or demeanable. Every person has the right to live, and the right to live means right to live with dignity. A person should live as “person” and no less. Human dignity hovers over our laws like a guardian angel; it underlies every norm of a just legal system and provides an ultimate justification for every legal rule. Therefore, right to dignity is the crown of fundamental rights under our Constitution and stands at the top, drawing its strength from all the fundamental rights under our Constitution and yet standing alone and tall, making human worth and humanness of a person a far more fundamental a right than the others, a right that is absolutely non-negotiable.A woman, whatever her sexual character or reputation may be, is entitled to equal protection of law. No one has the license to invade her person or violate her privacy on the ground of her alleged immoral character. Even if the victim of rape is accustomed to sexual intercourse, it is not determinative in a rape case; the real fact-in-issue is whether or not the accused committed rape on her. If the victim had lost her virginity earlier, it does not give to anyone the right to rape her. In a criminal trial relating to rape, it is the accused who is on trial and not the victim. The courts should also discontinue the use of painfully intrusive and inappropriate expressions, like “habituated to sex”, “woman of easy virtue”, “woman of loose moral character”, and “non-virgin”, for the alleged rape victims even if they find that the charge of rape is not proved against the accused. Such expressions are unconstitutional and illegal.Evidence relating to sexual history should not be admitted in order to draw inferences supporting the ‘twin mythsThe court further observed that the evidence relating to sexual history should not be admitted in order to draw inferences supporting the ‘twin myths’, namely, that by reason of that sexual history, it is more likely that the complainant may have consented or become less worthy of belief.Section 12(3) of the Punjab Witness Protection Act, 2018 codifies this position when it obligates the court to forbid a question to the victim of a sexual offence relating to any sexual behavior of the victim on any previous occasion with the accused or any other person, but also empowers the court to allow such a question if, in the court’s opinion, it is a relevant fact in the case. To the same effect are the provisions of Article 146 of the QSO, under which the court may forbid such questions if it finds that they are ‘indecent’ or ‘scandalous’, but can allow them if they relate to facts-in-issue or to matters necessary to be known in order to determine whether or not the facts in-issue existed. However, while allowing or disallowing such questions the court must be conscious of the possibility that the accused may have been falsely involved in the case, and should balance the right of the accused to make a full defence and the potential prejudice to the complainant’s rights to dignity and privacy, to keep the scales of justice even for both. Lahore High Court Declared Two Finger Tests UnconstitutionalIn a judgment delivered earlier this year, the Lahore High Court had held that two finger test and the hymen test carried out for the purposes of ascertaining the virginity of a female victim of rape or sexual abuse is unconstitutional. The court held that such tests are unscientific having no medical basis and also offends the personal dignity of the female victim. Justice Ayesha A. Malik held that such tests are discriminatory and against the right to life and right to dignity enshrined in Article 9 and 14 of the Constitution of Pakistan. The court also directed the Federation and Provincial Government to take necessary steps to ensure that virginity tests are not carried out in medico legal examination of the victims of rape and sexual abuse. Case:  Atif Zareef vs. StateClick here to Read/Download Judgment Next Storylast_img read more

A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice Suraj Govindaraj said “We direct state government to place on record what preventive steps the state government has taken or it intends to taken in terms of directions of Apex court dated February 16, 2010, for ensuring that unauthorised construction is not carried out in the name of temple church/mosque, gurdwara etc on public places including the property vested with the state.” The court said “In fact on its plain reading the order passed by the apex court, applies to not only public streets and public parks but also other public places which will include land vesting in the state government and also agencies and instrumentalities of the state.” The Supreme Court by order dated 29.09.2009 has required that no unauthorised constructions was henceforth to be carried out in the name of Temple, Church, Mosque, Gurudwara, etc. on public streets, public parks or other public places. By its order dated February 16, 2010, the Apex court had directed States and UT’s to take steps to ensure that no further unauthorised construction takes place on public places, streets/parks. There was also a direction to identify all such illegal structures within a period of six weeks from February 16, 2010. The court referring to the said direction issued by the apex court said “Perusal of the orders passed by this court from time to time will show that after several years after the directions were issued by the Apex court, neither the State government nor BBMP have been able to effectively implement the said order. In fact, BBMP counsel states that only three structures were removed in Yelahanka zone, recently.” The court also suggested the state government for the implementation of the directions of the Apex court, to create a machinery at taluk and district level to look into complaints made about illegal religious structures constructed on public places including government lands. It said “Wide publicity shall be given to the machinery created so that instead of approaching writ court the citizens can approach the machinery created by the state. Moreover, creation of such machinery will ensure that immediate action is taken when the construction commences or immediate action is taken after illegal religious construction is brought to the notice of the machinery.” The court has directed the Chief Secretary to file his affidavit on the two aspects within a period of six weeks from today. The court on the request made by the state government and BBMP extended the time granted for filing compliance reports to orders passed earlier, till July 17. The direction was given while hearing a suo-motu petition initiated for the implementation of an apex court order.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
