National Grid (LSE:NG) provides most of the UK’s electricity infrastructure. We all need electricity, more now than ever before. As we become increasingly reliant on our internet connection, on-demand streaming and ultra-connected homes, it’s far more than a case of keeping the lights on. So, National Grid’s monthly announcements that British electricity supply is being stretched are a little alarming.Balancing supply and demandThe company has been issuing electricity margin notices while it seeks to increase capacity to safeguard against a shortfall between supply and demand. However, it insists it will maintain enough generation to meet demand.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…The first announcement was in September, when it warned reserves had fallen below 500MW and it may require an increase to prevent a blackout. This was a message triggered automatically and the company later retracted it. But, in October, several National Grid power generators were experiencing unplanned outages and the wind speeds were too low to pick up the slack.Yesterday, it followed this up with a tweet forecasting tight margins on the electricity system again. This time The warning was due to several factors including low renewable output, and the availability of generators at periods of peak demand.Balancing the system is difficult. Generating electricity using renewables is unfamiliar territory to navigate, and I think teething problems are to be expected.Are blackouts on the horizon?In the past, blackouts were common in Britain and, in some remote locations, they still occur occasionally, usually down to geese flying into a power line, or a construction incident causing a cable to accidentally be cut.However, if supply and demand became a serious issue for National Grid, then power outages could become a more persistent problem. This seems unlikely today, but efficiently balancing the system is vital to keeping it this way.In California, they’ve endured countless blackouts due to soaring temperatures. These have required air conditioning and the grid has been unable to cope with the demand. I don’t see this being an imminent problem here. But I do think careful management and upgrading of the systems appear to be necessary.Are National Grid shares a good buy?Looking back over the past five years, the National Grid share price has endured extreme volatility. With a price-to-earnings ratio of 25, the shares aren’t cheap. They do, however, offer a decent dividend yield over 5%. This invariably entices long-term holders. All-in-all, I think the company is heading in the right direction. Any attempt to shift to renewables is commendable, but getting there effectively will be expensive. Blackouts could have a negative effect on the National Grid share price. But I doubt it will be any more volatile than it already is.Some of the power shift to renewable sources is going to require an element of trial and error. Hydrogen could be a potential replacement for natural gas in the process of heating homes. But for this to happen, National Grid’s infrastructure would have to be heavily upgraded. As long as the dividend is on offer, it’s probably not a bad addition to a FTSE 100 long-term portfolio. But I’m not particularly tempted by the National Grid share price and won’t be adding it to my Stocks and Shares ISA. Kirsteen has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Organisation PalestineMiddle East – North Africa RSF asks ICC prosecutor to say whether Israeli airstrikes on media in Gaza constitute war crimes November 29, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Upsurge of physical attacks on West Bank journalists RSF_en News Help by sharing this information News Follow the news on Palestine Receive email alerts May 28, 2021 Find out more to go further PalestineMiddle East – North Africa News WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists Israel now holding 13 Palestinian journalists May 16, 2021 Find out more News June 3, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders today strongly protested against an increase in physical assaults against journalists on the West Bank, eight of whom have been attacked by forces controlled by President of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, since 23 November.The worldwide press freedom organisation however welcomed the release on bail on 24 November of journalist Alaa Al-Titi and cameraman Ossayd Amarneh, of al-Aqsa television, who were arrested in Hebron, 30 kilometres south of Jerusalem on 5 November.“Journalists in the Palestinian territories are facing a constantly deteriorating situation,” the organisation said. “We call on the Palestinian authorities to ensure respect for the work of journalists covering the news in often dangerous conditions. The security forces should know how to distinguish them from demonstrators,” it added. Masked assailants kidnapped journalist Hafez Asakerah in Bethlehem on 23 November and released him two hours later. It is not known who they were. On the same day in Nablus, Palestinian Authority security forces arrested Moukhless Samara, a journalist on the daily Palestine, which has been banned for the past three months. His family said he had been summoned for questioning for unknown reasons and was still being held.Police assaulted or arrested several journalists on the fringes of a demonstration organised in Ramallah by the Islamic liberation party against the Middle East peace conference in Annapolis in the United States. They brutally beat the correspondent for al-Jazeera, Wael al-Shyoukhi, leaving him with a broken left arm. The director of local television station Watan, Moammar Orabi, was also assaulted. Both men needed hospital treatment.Security forces also held for two hours photographer Abbas Moumni, of Agence France-Presse, a cameraman for the BBC, Nader Ghoul, a photographer working for the APA agency, Essam Riwawi, as well as the producer of Communication & Medias News, Rami Samarah.The authorities released journalist Alaa Al-Titi and cameraman Ossayd Amarneh, of Hamas-affiliated al-Aqsa television on 24 November, after almost three weeks in custody. They both had to pay bail equivalent to 900 Euros to be provisionally set free while waiting for the opening of their trial on so far unspecified charges. The Palestinian Territories are listed by Reporters Without Borders in 158th place out of 169 on its world press freedom index published in October.

He had to sign a statement undertaking not to “lie” about his trial and conditions in the camp. Some of his personal effects, including his writings while in detention, were confiscated by the police without any explanation. His family said he appeared very debilitated by a year and half in detention.Liu, who used to contribute to the Shenzhen Evening News, was arrested on 2 May 2004 for posting articles on the Internet criticising abuses by the police and other officials. The sentence of two years of reeducation was imposed the same day by the Shenzhen public security bureau without any trial taking place._______________________________________________________________14.05.04Two cyberdissidents sentencedUS-resident Yang Jianli was sentenced on 13 May to five years in prison for “espionage” and “illegally entering Chinese territory”, after more than two years of imprisonment awaiting sentence.Journalist Liu Shui was on 2 May sentenced without trial to two years in a re-education camp. Officially accused of seeking the services of several prostitutes, Liu was in fact sentenced for posting sensitive items on the Internet, particularly on the Tiananmen Square massacres.Reporters Without Borders reacted angrily to the two sentences. “The Chinese authorities do not let up in their crackdown on free expression. To sentence Yang Li for spying for Taiwan and Lui Shiu for a moral issue is the height of absurdity, a clumsy cover for gagging political dissidents, the organisation said.Yang, now 40, was expelled from China after taking part in the 1989 Tiananmen Square demonstrations. He became a permanent resident of the US and created the 21st Century Foundation for China that works to promote democracy in the people’s republic. The cyberdissident is also editor of the dissident online review Yibao (www.chinaeweekly.com).He was arrested in April 2002 when he returned to China, using a friend’s passport, to investigate industrial unrest in the north-east of the country. At the end of his trial, on 4 August 2003, the verdict was postponed. Under Chinese criminal code, the authorities had four months to decide. The deadline passed five months ago, making the continued detention of Yang an infringement of Chinese law. As his sentence was pronounced Yang argued that his trial broke Chinese law and that he had been illegally detained for 164 days.His wife, Christina Fu, a US national who lives with their two children in Massachusetts., told Reporters Without Borders, “I am very sad. I know my husband is not a spy. I also know that it could have been worse but I was hoping he would be expelled. His father is 90 and he can’t be sure he will see him again. We are going to hold a press conference in Washington very soon to seek help from US and international authorities.” She said no decision had yet been taken about an appeal but it was “probable”.Freelance journalist Liu Shui, 37, was arrested in Shenzhen, Guangdong Province in the south of the country. He worked for the Southern Metropolitan News and the Shenzhen Evening News. Sentenced to two years in a re-education camp, he was punished under a high-speed procedure used in cases of minor offences.Liu was previously imprisoned 15 months after taking part in the Tiananmen Square demonstrations, for three years in 1994 for “counter-revolutionary propaganda”, then briefly again in 1998. On 19 March 2004, another cyberdissident Ma Yalian was sentenced to 18 months in a work re-education camp.
