T Sligo | Sunday, 22nd March, 2020 | More on: RKT ULVR “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” See all posts by T Sligo I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. In the market crash, I’d consider investing in these FTSE 100 stocks!center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares With the Covid-19 crisis ongoing, these are difficult waters for a personal investor to navigate.Understandably, governments around the world are taking action to stop the spread of the virus. These actions, such as travel restrictions and limits on activities will have an impact on business.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…As an investor, my priority is to not lose money. Maximising returns is a secondary objective. Of course, with the current slump in the market, I would imagine most investors’ portfolios are down, but I am hopeful that in the future the tides will turn, and the market will return to its previous buoyancy.As a long-term investor, I am reminding myself why I bought the stocks that I did in the first place. If nothing has changed, then why would I sell them? By selling, I would turn a paper loss into an actual loss. That is why during this market slump, I have not sold a single share.Inevitably, some industries and companies will be affected more than others. I will be avoiding travel and leisure shares until the situation becomes clearer, for example.I believe I have identified two FTSE 100 stocks that could be a good buy in the long-term.Reckitt BenckiserI feel good-quality consumable stocks have an in-built economic moat. The low-cost price of the goods, combined with a strong portfolio brands, make these things customers will continue to buy even in times of hardship. For an investor, they could be shares to buy and hold for the long term.I believe that Reckitt Benckiser (LSE: RB) is one of these companies. I do not believe that customers will stop buying items like Dettol, Durex, and Calgon, or even switch to own-brand alternatives unless things get really dire.Over the past three months, the Reckitt Benckiser share price has remained roughly level. By way of comparison, the FTSE 100 has dropped by approximately 31%.RB is currently trading with a price-to-earnings ratio of 17. That might not make it a bargain buy right now, but if it is safety you are after, I would consider buying Reckitt Benckiser shares.UnileverSimilarly, Unilever (LSE: ULVR) has an unrivalled portfolio of brands, including Ben & Jerry’s, Marmite, and Lynx.It is worth pointing out that if governments begin to restrict imported goods, it could harm both Unilever and Reckitt Benckiser. If this action is taken, revenues could seriously be harmed, with customers potentially finding alternatives elsewhere.If not, and supply chains remain intact, I struggle to see customers swapping these items from their trolleys.Nevertheless, Unilever’s share price has dropped by 5% in the past three months. With a price-to-earnings ratio of 17, the stock price is still sightly too expensive for me. But if it drops much further, I’ll be picking up a bargain!

Rugby sevens spotlight on: Kayla McAlister

first_imgI’m very competitive. Even if I don’t know what I’m doing, I’ll still go 100 miles an hour. I sometimes train with my fiancé, Pita Ahki. he’s part of the New Zealand men’s sevens programme and I’m nowhere near the targets he has but I’ll still try to keep up with him.You can never be fit enough for sevens. Netball has nothing on it. You have to train harder than you play, so it’s brutal. That’s the hardest adjustment – fitness. I looked so different four years ago with my skin folds compared to where I am now. I’ll never be super-fit, I’m more of a power athlete. I’m a pitbull, not a greyhound! Rock: Fiance Pita Ahki has been supportive throughout Kayla’s injury concernsI spent seven years in the UK as a child. My dad played rugby league for Oldham, so we lived in Manchester from when I was two months until I was eight. I remember playing in the street every night with kids from the neighbourhood and getting 50p to buy lollies. It took me six months to get rid of the accent! The Olympics has always been the goal. That’s why I came across to rugby. The first two years of the programme were great, but over the past 18 months I’ve had a few injuries because the game demands a lot of your body. I played in Clermont (on the last leg of the Women’s World Series) and didn’t have to make an appointment with the physio afterwards, so that was great. I needed a tournament under my belt before Rio.New Zealand are going for gold. We didn’t win the World Series this year, but gold is the big one. In saying that, all 12 teams are on the same page as you can’t prepare for the Olympics. We play six games over three days instead of six in two days. The series is about quick turnarounds – who’s fittest and fastest – but everyone will have six hours’ rest in Rio. It’ll come down to who is mentally prepared for the occasion. “I’m more of a power athlete. I’m a pitbull, not a greyhound!” Fern form: The Olympic schedule is less congested than the World SeriesWe’ve been told your first Olympics can be overwhelming. We train alongside other Olympians, like Valerie Adams, at the high Performance Sport Centre in Auckland. They’ve been there and done it so have given talks about not getting too caught up in things and sticking to your processes. Her father Charlie had a successful career in league and union while her brother Luke is a former all Black now plying his trade in toulouse, but Kayla McAlister only started playing rugby four years ago. The carrot that persuaded her to pick up an oval ball was the chance to represent New Zealand in sevens at the Rio Olympics. Here she talks through her journey… For the latest Rugby World subscription offers click here and find out how to download the digital edition here. I used to work at the Ministry of Justice. For the first two years we’d train from 6-8am, go to work for eight hours and then train again. In 2014 we were given contracts and that’s huge for women’s rugby in New Zealand. The Olympics is about us being the best we can be and that’s a full-time job. I’ve started studying early childhood – U5s – and passed the first year, but put it on hold because of the Olympics. I love kids.There’s a wedding on the cards. Pita and I are contracted to New Zealand until 2017 but in the next four-year cycle we’d like to get married and have a baby. But there’s the Commonwealth Games in 2018 and another World Cup… My dad, my brother and my fiancé all give me advice. My dad is all about work-ons, my brother gives positive vibes and Pita is in between – positive and work-ons. Pita’s been a big rock, especially through my recent injuries. We push each other to work hard. I don’t think I could be with someone who wasn’t a sportsman. Netball is my background. In New Zealand netball is the predominant game for girls and the Silver Ferns was always my goal. I played for 16 years and had one season with the Northern Mystics, when we made the Grand final in 2011, but I was dropped the next year. If that hadn’t happened I probably wouldn’t be playing rugby. I went to a sevens camp with Portia Woodman, who I’d played with at the Mystics, as they were looking for women from other sports going into the Olympics cycle.My first tournament was in Dubai in 2012. We won and as we did a lap of honour I was thinking, ‘Oh my God!’. The men play at the tournament, too, so it was a huge crowd and I’d never experienced an environment like that or a crowd that big in netball. It was really cool.We have our own haka, which is special. We only do it when we win, although in Brazil they kept chanting “haka”, so we did it even though we’d lost. It shows the effect of the black jersey worldwide – that comes from what the men’s team have done in history. I obviously knew New Zealand rugby is huge, but it’s only since playing that I’ve learnt what the black jersey means. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

Former City Manager Anderson to Fight Contract Termination

first_img Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. Apopka City Hall Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here Please enter your name here LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply 2 COMMENTS Please enter your comment! Gary Thorningburg I by no means condone Mr. Anderson alleged behavior if in fact it turns out to be true. Nonetheless, I can’t help but to question Mayor Kilsheimer behavior and questionable activities on behalf of Apopka’s citizens, that rises to the level of impugning the reputation of the city. Further, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement should investigate under swore deposition Apopka’s City Manager as to whether or not the mayor circumvents Florida Sunshine laws as it relates to communications of city business through the city manager to specific council members prior to city official business. May 30, 2016 at 8:23 am The Anatomy of Fear Eddie Poirier The City of Apopka administration is furious at Richard Anderson. A lawsuit alleges the former Apopka Chief Administrative Officer turned lobbyist/consultant of crashing his truck head-on into a car driving in the opposite direction on April 5th, and then leaving the scene. But whether the allegations are true or not, according to the City, Anderson did not inform City administrators of the incident.On Wednesday afternoon Glen Irby, Apopka City Administrator, sent an email to the City Council advising the Commissioners that, “Yesterday city administration decided to terminate the contract with Richard Anderson.”Attached to the email was a letter from the City’s attorney, Cliff Shepard dated May 24, 2016. Shepard’s letter  references the hit and run accident that occurred on April 5, 2016, and went on to state that Anderson had not informed the City about the accident or the lawsuit that had been filed by Michael Falcon.  As previously reported by The Apopka Voice, Falcon was the driver of the other vehicle.Shepard’s letter then advised Anderson that the City was being asked if it was aware of the accident and if the “reprehensible conduct attributed to you is acceptable from a City lobbyist and consultant.”Richard AndersonShepard then states that Anderson is in breech of Section F(1) of his contract which says, in part, that Anderson, “will not act in any way, that would damage the City, its elected and appointed officials, employees, contractors or volunteers’ reputations, relationships and present or future business.”  The letter then says that Anderson’s conduct, “… has fallen far short of this contractual requirement.”The letter then tells Anderson that he is, “… suspended from engaging in any activities for or on behalf of the City pending the Mayor’s recommendation to the City Council that the agreement be immediately terminated for cause.”Anderson pushed back on Shepard’s accusations, and threatened actions of his own through his attorney Larry Brown if the City were to terminate the contract.On Thursday, at 2:26 PM, Brown responded to Shepard’s letter and said, “As his attorney, I want to put you on notice that Mr. Anderson rejects your assertion that he has breached any duty he has under his agreement with the City. Therefore, any effort by the City to terminate the agreement will be treated by us as a default on your part, and will be actionable.”Later on Thursday, Shepard responded and laid out the conditions that Anderson must meet to avoid the termination of his contract:The City wants an affidavit from Anderson stating, under oath, that he doesn’t own the truck involved in the April 5th crash.  Alternatively they will accept an affidavit stating:Anderson was not in the pickup at the time of the crash.Andeson does not know who the driver was and had not authorized anyone to drive the vehicle.He is not aware of the crash until he was served with the lawsuit and would notify law enforcement if he learns the driver’s identity.He will cooperate with the FHP investigation of the crash.Shepard gave Anderson until noon Tuesday to produce an affidavit.Shepard continued with this; “”In the absence of such a sworn affidavit, the Mayor will be forced to proceed with his recommendation that the lobbying and consulting Agreement be terminated since it cannot be denied that the City’s reputation will be harmed if it permits a suspected criminal to represent it interests to state and Federal government officials.”The issue is likely going to come before the June 1st City Council Meeting, where all of Apopka’s thorniest subjects seem to land. You make some valid points. Mr Anderson should not be forced to file a sworn statement that could be used against him in a pending criminal case, Reply Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 TAGSCity of ApopkaCliff ShepardGlenn IrbyRichard Anderson Previous articleWater Management District Offers Tips for Hurricane SeasonNext articleOCPS and teachers reach salary agreement Dale Fenwick RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate May 27, 2016 at 9:38 am Reply last_img read more
