If you have £1,000 to invest today and don’t know where to start, there are plenty of options in the FTSE 100. However, with the coronavirus outbreak showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon, investors need to be careful.With that in mind, here are two FTSE 100 dividend stocks I believe are attractive investments in the current environment.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…FTSE 100 incomeBunzl (LSE: BNZL) is one of the FTSE 100’s most successful businesses. For the past few decades, this company has chalked up an excellent record of dividend and earnings growth. Management has been pursuing a conservative acquisition strategy, which has helped the company consolidate the highly fragmented distribution business.By following this buy and build strategy, the FTSE 100 champion has been able to achieve unrivalled economies of scale. Thanks to this combination of acquisitions and improving efficiency, net profit has grown at a compound annual rate of 11% over the past six years.The company’s dividend to investors has also grown at 8% per annum over the same time frame.Bunzl won’t escape the coronavirus outbreak unscathed. Nevertheless, it’s better positioned than many of its peers to weather the storm. Indeed, while the business will almost certainly suffer a significant decline in its foodservice and leisure business, rising demand for cleaning, hygiene and healthcare supplies should offset some of the impact.This suggests the company should be able to maintain its dividend. Right now, investors can buy the stock for just 13.3 times forward earnings. That’s the lowest valuation in five years. The FTSE 100 dividend growth champion also supports a dividend yield of 3.2%.Defensive businessLike Bunzl, FTSE 100 income champion Smiths Group’s (LSE: SMIN) revenue diversification should help the business weather this storm.Smiths is one of the world’s largest and most respected manufacturers of security and engineering equipment. Demand for these products will drop in the near term, but it’s likely to increase over the long run.Smiths Group’s reputation is vital here. These are not the sort of products customers want to be cutting costs on. They’re prepared to pay for quality, and that’s where the group has the edge.What’s more, the business is a crucial supplier of medical devices, including ventilators. Demand for these is booming, which should provide the company with enough cash flow to keep the business ticking over until confidence restores.Unfortunately, despite this diversification, the coronavirus outbreak is having a significant impact on the FTSE 100 business. In its latest trading update, the company informed investors that demand for most of its products has slumped. With this being the case, management has taken the prudent action to postpone the group’s interim dividend.This is disappointing. But by saving cash, management should be able to reinstate the payout later in the year. And when the payout does return, investors can look forward to a 3.8% dividend yield. That’s if the distribution is restated at historical levels, which seems likely at this stage.center_img I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

EPA Releases Year-round E15 Rule

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News EPA Releases Year-round E15 Rule Facebook Twitter The Trump Administration Tuesday released its proposal to allow for year-round E15 sales. The proposal would remove a barrier that limited the year-round sales, while also making changes to credits refiners use to prove they are using biofuel. In a news release, Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Andrew Wheeler stated, “EPA is working to propose and finalize these changes by the summer driving season,” which starts June first and is also the date when E15 sales are restricted. The proposal would provide a Reid Vapor Pressure waiver for the summer months that has historically been applied only to E10.National Corn Growers Association President Lynn Chrisp was pleased with the announcement of the proposed rule. He said, “Allowing year-round sales of higher blends of ethanol not only grows a domestic market for farmers, but E15 gives consumers more choice at the pump, a lower price option and greater environmental benefits from a cleaner fuel. It’s time to remove the barrier to all of these benefits.”Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor called the rule a “critical milestone.” However, proposed changes to the RIN market are questioned by the industry. While many are still reviewing the proposal, Skor says Growth Energy wants to make sure that changes “do not upend the marketplace, and continue to encourage investment in E15 and other higher ethanol blends.” Before finalizing the rule, EPA will now accept comments from biofuel producers, farmers, and other stakeholders.

Application In Patiala House Court Seeks Early Hearing Of Plea Seeking Investigation into JNU Violence

Filed by Advocates Adit S. Pujari, Tara Narula, Kriti Awasthi and Viren Bansal, the early hearing application states that there has been negligible progress in the status of investigation into the 5th January incident and delaying the same can lead to tampering/loss of evidence. Sen had previously approached the district court on 13th January and filed an Application under Section 156(3) of the Code of Criminal Procedure, seeking for directions for registration of FIRs against accused persons under Section 120B, read with Sections 147, 148, 149, 307, 323, 324, 325, 336, 337, 425, 506 of the Indian Penal Code. On 16th January, the Court directed the investigative agency to file an Action Taken Report and the matter was adjourned to 23rd March. Till 20th February, no intimation had been made to the Applicant for participation in the investigation. After 45 days of the incident, three members finally visited the Applicant at home to inquire about the same. It is averred in the Application that since then, there has been no further information regarding the status of the investigation; no Report as mandated under Section 157(2) of CrPC has been placed before the Court as well. Additionally, due to the ensuing COVID-19 pandemic threat, the matter was initially adjourned to 25th April, and now has been further adjourned to 18th June. The Application notes that that with regard to the 2020 Delhi Riots, the Delhi Police, Crime Branch is “actively investigating other cases, conducting forensic research to establish presence of persons at the spot and involvement of other persons by seizing phones and anaylsis of data”. Therefore, the investigative agency is admittedly and demonstrably capable of carrying out the investigation. Furthermore, in its Order dated 14th Jan, 2020, the Delhi High Court had directed that the case needs to be “probed thoroughly and expeditiously so that such kind of incidents are not repeated in future”. “As such, urgency is required into investigation into the complaint of the Applicant, which can only take place pursuant to the registration of an FIR. En masse investigation by registration of a few/single FIRs has been deprecated by the Hon’ble High Court.” The Application also invokes the landmark judgement of Lalita Kumari v. Govt. of UP (2014), wherein a 5-judge Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court emphasized the importance of mandatory and immediate registration of an FIR when information of commission of cognizable offences is received. The grounds of urgency that have been averred in the Application are as follows: 1. Directions of the Delhi High Court in its Order dated 14th January, 2020. 2. Ability of the investigative agency to analyze digital data and to forensically establish locations of persons. 3. Easy availability of persons (either accused or witnesses) on account of nationwide lockdown. 4. Evidence is in the nature of data and can be tampered with/lost. 5. There has been negligible headway into the investigation, despite 4 months having elapsed since the incident. To that end, the Application concludes with: “That the nature of the offences committed by the accused persons on 05.01.2020 in JNU Campus are very serious and include offences that are cognizable and non-bailable in nature, and necessary directions to the investigating agency are being sought by way of the captioned Complaint Case to register an FIR and to further investigate the complaint of the Applicant fairly, properly and impartially”.Click Here To Download Application[Read Application] Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Chandrachud on Thursday, he observed, “The issue of juvenility has attained finality in your case. In your case, it was addressed. Now, a 32 petition cannot be filed. You have the remedy of a review or a curative plea”The judge pointed to Senior Counsel S. Nagamuthu, for the petitioner, the observations in the 2016 authority in another writ petition against the upholding of conviction and life imprisonment by the Apex Court under Section 3 of the TADA and under Section 302 read with Section 120B of the IPC. “The present writ petition under Article 32 of the Constitution of India by no stretch of reasoning would fit into any of the permissible categories of post conviction exercises permissible in law as laid down by this Court”, quoted Justice Chandrachud from the judgment.”The review in our case was dismissed…and the procedure does not matter under 32″, urged Mr. Nagamuthu.”No,.no, no. Come in a curative petition”, said Justice Chandrachud.Mr. Nagamuthu sought to make submissions and cite two judgments of the Supreme Court on the issue of the Juvenile Justice Act and ‘trial as an adult’- “The conflict can be corrected only by Your Lordships. There is a problem in trial courts because of this. Please let me make an attempt. Please post this matter before a three-judge bench”, he prayed.The bench of Justice Chandrachud and Indu Malhotra then agreed to post the matter next week, to be taken up in a 3-judge bench combination.”There is no justification whatsoever to restrict the meaning of `any person’ and `whoever’ only to a major or non-juvenile as such an interpretation would have a potentiality to defeat the object of TADA”, the Apex Court had noted in the impugned judgment of 2013.The bench had expressed that it is clear that the appellant from his conduct cannot by any stretch of imagination qualify as a child in need of care and protection as the acts committed by him are so grave and heinous warranting the maximum penalty but the Designated Court after considering all these factors awarded him lesser punishment when the co-accused who accompanied him to Fishermens’ colony and committed similar acts were awarded with the maximum punishment for heinous acts committed by them along with co-accused.From the reading of the entire evidence placed by the prosecution, the bench had concluded that it is established beyond doubt that:(i) The appellant took oath that he will take revenge against Hindus;(ii) The appellant received training in handling of arms and explosives at Sandheri and Borghat;(iii) He attended conspiratorial meeting at the residence of co-accused(iv) He participated in filling of RDX and iron scraps in vehicles in the intervening night of 11/12.03.1993 at Al-Hussaini Building;(v) He along with other co-accused lobbed hand-grenades at Mahim Fishermens’ colony;(vi) He possessed 17 hand-grenades which were concealed in the over-head water tank, which were recovered at his instance.”Upon a reading of the entire evidence, we hold that all the charges framed against him stand proved beyond any doubt…we confirm the conviction and sentence awarded by the Designated Court, consequently, the appeals are dismissed”, it was ruled.

Death of Maine teacher who went missing ruled a suicide, authorities say

first_imgCumberland County Sheriff’s Office(NORTH YARMOUTH, Maine) — The death of a Maine teacher who was reported missing on Monday has been ruled a suicide, according to local authorities.A body found Friday morning in a wooded area roughly 500 feet off Gray Road in North Yarmouth, Maine, has been identified as 47-year-old Kristin Westra, who was last seen by her husband, Jay Westra, last Sunday night.The Cumberland County Medical Examiner ruled Kristin Westra’s death a suicide, the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office announced Sunday. Her cause of death was not released.Jay Westra reported his wife missing Monday morning after he woke up and discovered she was not home, Cumberland County Sheriff’s Capt. Scott Stewart told ABC News Tuesday. He last saw her before he went to bed that night, after she returned home from a jog, Stewart said.Kristin Westra’s brother, Eric Rohrbach, told ABC News that she had trouble falling asleep Sunday night and that her husband assumed she was going to try and sleep in an empty room when she got out of bed around 3 a.m.When Jay Westra woke up, he “realized she wasn’t there,” Rohrbach said.Rohrbach said his sister had been under “some stress” due to work and home renovations but described her disappearance as “very abnormal,” and said she didn’t do drugs or drink alcohol.“The thought of her doing this to her family is completely out of the norm,” Rohrbach said.When Jay Westra attempted to call her cell phone Monday morning, it rang inside the house, Rohrbach said. She did not have her keys or wallet, he said.Kristin Westra was an elementary school teacher and mother to a 9-year-old daughter and 16-year-old stepson, Rohrbach said, calling her a “pillar in her community.”Dozens of volunteers searched for Kristin Westra earlier this week. Cumberland County Sheriff’s Capt. Craig Smith did not disclose who located the remains or in what condition they were found.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Canadian Navy to Apply New Technologies to Counter Laser-Based Threats

first_img View post tag: Canadian Share this article View post tag: technologies View post tag: Threats View post tag: Naval Back to overview,Home naval-today Canadian Navy to Apply New Technologies to Counter Laser-Based Threats View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Counter Industry newscenter_img View post tag: New View post tag: Navy Cassidian, the defence and security division of EADS, is developing innovative solutions to protect ships of the Canadian Navy against asymmetric laser-based threats. Under the designation LOCATES (Laser Optical Countermeasures and Surveilllance Against Threat Environment Scenarios), the Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC), based in Valcartier/Québec awarded Cassidian a contract in 2011 to apply new technologies to detect and counter laser-based threats such as laser-beamrider missiles in harbors and littoral waters.Now, the Critical Design Review has been achieved allowing the hardware development and integration of a demonstrator system which will be field-tested in July 2012 until the second half of 2013.The programme reacts to increasing threats of laser range finders, laser designators and laser-guided weapons which are widely distributed and easy to operate. Navy ships are particularly vulnerable in a littoral environment where attacks are difficult to be detected without sufficient pre-warning time.Therefore, LOCATES aims at the development of a detection and tracking capability together with a reliable laser countermeasure system. In close cooperation between Cassidian and DRDC, the programme will include technologies developed by DRDC and Cassidian’s experience in the production of laser-based self-protection systems.“As the threat scenario confronting naval forces worldwide is continously evolving, the Canadian Navy needs cutting-edge technologies to detect and protect vessels from asymmetric threats,” said Simon Jacques, Cassidian Head of Canadian Sales. “Cassidian is proud to continue our long-term collaboration with the DRDC, and leverage our know-how and expertise to develop future laser detection and countermeasure innovations. Technologies developed in partnership with the DRDC-Valcartier will not only satisfy the Canadian Navy’s littoral requirements, but also those of allied Navies throughout the world.”Cassidian capitalizes on a wide-ranging experience in the field of platform self-protection in the electro-optic spectrum. The company has developed laser warning devices for ships, aircraft and land vehicles which are in operation with several NATO armed forces. Its MILDS missile launch detection system, with more than 8,000 units sold, is the standard missile warner for helicopters and widebody aircraft on a global scale.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, May 30, 2012; Image: Cassidian May 30, 2012 View post tag: Apply View post tag: Laser-Based Canadian Navy to Apply New Technologies to Counter Laser-Based Threatslast_img read more

Robert Tortora. “After spending most of 2012 preparing USS Antietam for forward operations, the crew conducted a professional and well-executed turnover with Cowpens this February, and then worked diligently to learn the differences between the two hulls and how to operate Cowpens at sea. I am very proud of the efforts of all hands to first make Antietam ready and then make themselves fully mission capable in Cowpens.”Cowpens will conduct operations and training within Third Fleet’s 50-million square mile AOR.U.S. Third Fleet leads naval forces in the Eastern Pacific from the West coast of North America to the international date line.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, April 8, 2013; Image: US Navy View post tag: Defence View post tag: News by topiclast_img read more
