Demand for UK shares has risen over the past few weeks as hopes over the economic recovery have picked up. Uncertainty over global activity remains high as the Covid-19 crisis drags on. But it’s possible that investor interest in so-called reopening stocks will continue rising in the days and weeks ahead. These sort of shares stand to gain the most from retreating Covid-19 lockdowns and travel restrictions. Should I buy these UK reopening stocks for my ISA in May?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…One of my FTSE 100 favouritesAssociated British Foods (LSE: ABF) would be an attractive UK share to buy during any usual economic recovery. But I think the FTSE 100 stock is a particularly great company to buy this time around. Why? Well I think clothing spending is likely to be particularly high following the end of Covid-19 restrictions. This bodes well for this reopening stock’s fast fashion Primark division.News of huge queues forming outside its storefronts have been plastered all over the papers recently as people have sought to glam up and refresh their wardrobes as they hit the town (and the workplace) again. Indeed, Primark enjoyed record weekly sales in England and Wales during the seven days to 12 April. I think ABF is a great pick for long-term share investors as the business seeks to expand its presence on foreign shores. But bear in mind that rising concerns over sustainability could cause profits growth to disappoint if consumers begin to turn their backs on fast fashion.Man-made threatsI don’t think Gem Diamonds (LSE: GEMD) is an attractive reopening stock to buy today, however. That’s even though consumer spending is likely to receive a jolt. Buying UK mining shares requires a healthy tolerance of risk as a variety of exploration and production problems can unexpectedly occur. However, in the case of this company I’m chiefly concerned by the soaring popularity of lab-grown diamonds and how this will damage long-term profit. Today Pandora, the world’s biggest jewellery chain, said it will no longer sell mined stones on ethical and environmental concerns. It will sell artificial diamonds only, a move that could be replicated by other major chains before too long.A better UK reopening stockI’d be happier buying Wizz Air (LSE: WIZZ) shares for my Stocks and Shares ISA today. Of course this reopening stock also carries its fair share of risks today as Covid-19 infection rates remain buoyant in large parts of Europe. still, I think this UK share has a much brighter long-term future than Gem Diamonds. Firstly, the low-cost airline segment is expected to drive the recovery in the broader aviation sector. Secondly, this particular operator has significant exposure to Central and Eastern European emerging markets, regions where travel spending is growing strongly. Things are also looking up in the shorter term, too, with European Union lawmakers proposing plans to permit inbound travel under certain conditions. It’s possible that the continent’s airways could be buzzing again in a matter of weeks. Enter Your Email Address Should I buy these 3 reopening stocks (including this FTSE 100 share) in May?

Body of slain Intan Jaya pastor to be autopsied, says fact-finding team

first_imgThe members of a government-sanctioned joint fact-finding team (TGPF) for the Intan Jaya shooting case have convinced the wife and family members of slain Papuan pastor Yeremia Zanambani to allow the body to be autopsied as part of an ongoing investigation.Benny Mamoto of the National Police Commission (Kompolnas), who leads the field investigation unit, said the autopsy agreement was made during an initial investigation to gather information from Yeremia’s family.“Family consent for the autopsy was given by Yeremia’s family members, so it is only a matter of following up by the investigators,” Benny told The Jakarta Post on Monday. Four members of Yeremia’s family signed a police interrogation report (BAP) affirming their statements as witnesses after previously refusing to sign one, Benny said.He said the statements of the family members were necessary for the initial investigation because they were the last people who were with the victim before he was killed.“The witnesses were the ones who were at the scene of the crime, so the reports are about what they saw, what they experienced, what they heard from the victim and other things related to the victim,” Benny said.Read also: Papuans doubtful over govt team to probe shootings At first, the family members declined to sign the BAP, he said. He believed the reluctance was because of the language barrier, limited knowledge of the law and input from other parties.“We invited religious and community leaders to convince them and explain the legal process and the importance of witness testimony. Their interpreter also signed one, so they felt more comfortable and confident,” Benny added.The joint team has examined the scene of the shooting, the cemetery and the church and has questioned the victim’s family and a number of other witnesses.Benny said the team would continue investigating the shooting despite experiencing an attack reportedly launched by the West Papua National Liberation Army (TPNPB) on Friday.“We will analyze and evaluate all the information, and we will report it to the Coordinating Political, Legal and Security Affairs Minister [Mahfud MD] as the person in charge,” added Benny.He acknowledged that the difficult terrain and limited transportation and communication access were obstacles for the team.In addition to Yeremia’s death, which occurred on Sept. 19, the team will investigate other deaths that took place around the same time in September, including the shooting of a civilian named Badawi and of two TNI soldiers, Chief. Sgt. Sahlan and First Pvt. Dwi Akbar.The team has been given two weeks, starting from the formation of the group on Oct. 1, to report the results of the investigation to the government.Topics :last_img read more

New Surinamese Ambassador to Guyana appointed

first_img…pledges to deepen cultural ties with GuyanaPresident David Granger on Wednesday accepted a letter of credence from Ebu Jones at the Ministry of the Presidency, accrediting him as the new Surinamese Ambassador to Guyana.With the appointment of the new Ambassador, both Guyana and Suriname are seeking to improve their bilateral relationship through initiatives for sustainable development.In the presence of Foreign Affairs Minister, Dr Karen Cummings and Director-General of the Foreign Affairs Ministry, Audrey Jardine-Waddell, Ambassador Jones posited that his country is looking at deepening cultural ties with Guyana.According to him, both countries have displayed mutual respect and understanding for each other since the establishment of their bilateral relationship in 1975, which has witnessed continuous collaboration in a number of sectors, including agriculture, fisheries, forestry and health. Going forward, Suriname is also seeking to boost trading operations with Guyana with the prospects of other collaborations.“The Government of Suriname believes that the main focus and coopFrom left: Foreign Affairs Minister, Dr Karen Cummings; Suriname Ambassador to Guyana Ebu Jones; President David Granger; and Director-General of the Foreign Affairs Ministry, Audrey Jardine-Waddelleration should be placed on achieving sustainability and in the pursuit of the development of country and people. It is therefore important and necessary that an atmosphere of peace, togetherness and friendship is being sustained. Emphasis should be placed on what binds us rather than what divides us,” the newly accredited Ambassador related.He added, “There is even more potential for collaboration in the sustainable use of our natural resources as well as exploring environmental tourism and agriculture opportunities both countries have to offer. Suriname also looks forward towards deepening the cultural relationship and intensifying economic trade activities.”President David Granger acknowledged his letter of credence, adding that the main focus will surround regional peace. This includes the elimination of illegal migration and money laundering among other issues which are seen as threats.“Guyana is committed towards ensuring that the South American continent remains a zone of peace. Peace in our region could be endangered by transnational threats such as trafficking of illegal weapons, narcotics and people; illegal migration; money laundering, environmental hazards and territorial controversies,” the president said.The idea of eradicating these issues were welcomed by both countries, who saw the appointment as an opportunity to combat difficult challenges faced in the past. As was mentioned, there is a large count of persons from the Guyanese Diaspora, who have been residing and contributing economically to Suriname.“Guyana looks forward to working with Suriname within the ambit of the Caribbean Community and the Guyana Suriname Corporation Council, to continue to improve trade, to intensify cultural, economic, environmental and social cooperation to combat transnational threats.”The new Ambassador had previously held the position of Chargé d’Affaires at the Embassy of the Republic of Suriname in the Kingdom of The Netherlands. Next year, the countries will celebrate 45 years since the establishment of bilateral ties.last_img read more

Pirates down Chiefs, defend MTN 8 title

first_imgFor the first time since 1988, Orlando Pirates beat arch-rivals Kaizer Chiefs in a cup final when they scored a 1-0 victory after extra time in the MTN 8 final at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg on Saturday night. Eight was the Buccaneer’s lucky number: as winners of the top eight competition for an eighth time, Pirates picked up the winners’ cheque of R8-million. ControlAfter the break Pirates started to control the game and defender Siyabonga Sangweni headed narrowly over the crossbar from a corner kick. In the 70th minute a similar opportunity fell Sangweni’s way, but this time Amakhosi goalie Itumeleng Khune stopped Sangweni’s shot. with a smart one-handed save. In the last 10 minutes Chiefs’ substitute S’thembiso Ngcobo had two chances in quick succession to steal a victory for his side, but Pirates’ net-minder Moneeb Josephs stopped Ngcobo’s first shot with a good save low to his right and the striker was just wide of the mark with his second opportunity, a header from a corner. It was a successful defence of the title they claimed in October 2010 after a penalty shootout win over Moroka Swallows. The last team to achieve back-to-back titles in the competition was, ironically, their opponents in the final, Chiefs. It was also Pirates’ fourth title won out of the last five on offer. Fans of the Soweto giants won’t have to wait long for another derby. The teams meet at the FNB Stadium again on 17 September, but silverware won’t be up for grabs as it is a PSL match. A massive crowd of over 90 000 was subjected to a tepid first half, with neither team really threatening the other’s goal as a deadlocked battle took place in midfield. There were a couple of headed opportunities for both teams, but the goalkeepers dealt with them comfortably. ‘The happiest man in the world’Following his side’s win, Pirates’ coach Julio Leal said at the post-match press conference: “Tonight, I’m the happiest man in the world, not because we won but because we also played well. center_img 13 September 2011 WinnerChiefs pushed hard for victory in extra time, but it was Pirates who found the breakthrough, courtesy of midfielder Oupa Manyisa. He struck a long range shot that dipped and bounced awkwardly in front of goalkeeper Khune, who should have stopped it. However, the ball bounced a touch more than he expected and hit the back of the net. “I’m very happy to score another goal,” Manyisa said afterwards, “but what is important for me is to help the team win trophies. At the moment, I’m enjoying my football. I don’t want to take credit because at the end of the day we are playing as a team.” “This is a good start for us this season. It’s good for our confidence level. I think my players played very well, they fought very hard for the whole match. I think today we showed that we are a team that is capable of winning.” With time almost up and extra time beckoning striker Bongani Ndalula looked to have won it for the Buccaneers with a header, but referee Victor Hlungwani controversially decided that Ndalula had pushed Chiefs’ defender Dominic Isaacs and a free kick went the Amakhosi’s way. Television replays suggested that it was a harsh decision. Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

BCCI retains panel hearing charges against Modi

first_imgThe BCCI on Saturday retained the three-member disciplinary committee probing charges of financial irregularities against Lalit Modi, rejecting the former IPL chairman’s demand for a reconstitution of the panel.The decision was taken at a Special General Meeting convened to resolve the matter after Modi’s counsel Mehmood Abdi pointed out last month that the panel did not have the BCCI General Body’s mandate.The committee comprises the trio of Chirayu Amin, Arun Jaitley and Jyotiraditya Scindia.”The committee had already got the BCCI’s approval in the Annual General Meeting but it was not recorded in the minutes of the meeting,” a BCCI source said after the meeting.Abdi had said that BCCI forgot to re-constitute the Committee for the year 2010-2011 at its AGM held in September.Modi’s camp had consistently opposed the nomination of Amin and Jaitley, both members of the IPL Governing Council when it was headed by Modi, citing bias.last_img read more
