See all posts by Harvey Jones Image source: Getty Images. Harvey Jones | Monday, 15th March, 2021 | More on: TSCO The Tesco (LSE: TSCO) share price catches my eye right now. I think it looks good value. Not only that, but the UK’s largest grocer pays an attractive level of income too. I think this FTSE 100 income and growth stock would fit nicely inside a Stocks and Shares ISA.I’ve been sceptical about investing in the supermarkets in the past, having swept them from my portfolio six or seven years ago. However, today I find the Tesco share price highly tempting.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…Tesco had a good pandemic. It established itself as an essential service (as did all the supermarkets). As a result, nobody complained about its decision to carry on paying its dividend to investors throughout.I’m watching the Tesco share priceThis is one of the best reasons to invest in Tesco, as you currently get a forward yield of 4.4%. That looks highly attractive to me, as even the best instant access Cash ISAs pay just 0.4%. Better still, the dividend is covered 1.9 times earnings. While dividends are never guaranteed, this looks as solid as most on the FTSE 100.However, there’s no guarantee Tesco will do as well once lockdowns are over. Grocery sales could slip as people eat out more and drink in pubs and restaurants rather than at home. The hospitality sector will be the big winner post lockdown, so supermarkets may be the losers. That may partly explain why the Tesco share price is down 10% in the last month.On the plus side, sales of personal care products might rise, as people will want to look their best once we are released outdoors.Right now, the Tesco share price trades at just 11.9 times earnings. I’d buy it with a long-term view, to retirement and beyond. I’m not worried how it will fare over the next six months, or so. In fact, I see the recent dip as a buying opportunity.German threat fadesLately, Tesco has been doing well against its peers. Its market share has just increased for the first time since December 2016. The increase was just 0.2 percentage points higher to 27.4%, but that’s still impressive in such a competitive market. Aldi and Lidl are both losing share, the first time that’s happened in a decade. This could spell more good news for the Tesco share price.Tesco has also benefited from the switch to online grocery sales, where the German discounters have struggled to compete. Of course, demand for home deliveries could fall once the latest lockdown is over, but more people have got into the habit of shopping online and it could stick. Sales at Tesco Express stores have also been healthy.Tesco is in a much better position than when I swept it out of my portfolio in the disastrous days of former CEO Philip Clarke. I’d buy it today in an ISA. After seven or eight years in the doldrums, I think there’s scope for the Tesco share price to deliver some growth.

While we have already seen early success with the model in G2G, we intend to take full advantage of the algorithm and utilise it in other products soon to come.”  320 total views,  2 views today Tagged with: artificial intelligencecenter_img Melanie May | 3 June 2019 | News Futurus Group files patent for AI-based gratitude prediction model Futurus Group has announced that it is seeking a patent for its proprietary gratitude prediction machine learning model.Futurus Group was launched by US philanthropy consultancy firm Gobel Group earlier this year to help healthcare organisations increase philanthropic support through AI.Its flagship product, G2G (Gratitude to Give) uses its patent-pending algorithm and, according to Futurus Group, is the first artificially intelligent product on the market to focus on predicting gratitude specifically in a healthcare environment. Early results using G2G show clients have experienced a 4-5 times increase in identifying donors versus their former prioritisation methods.Chad Gobel, CEO and founder of Gobel Group said:“We conceptualised this idea a few years ago. We felt that the way philanthropic organisations were finding prospects was incomplete, and we wanted to develop an algorithm that could dramatically improve the methodology. We’re so excited to see such great preliminary results, and the filing of the patent is an exciting milestone for us.”The patent-pending technology involves the use of various machine learning models in order to generate a gratitude score that characterises the likelihood that patients will make a donation to the healthcare organisation in the future.Using this method, which is HIPAA compliant, organisations will be able to obtain patient history data, including data collected from patient interactions with the hospital as well as third party data, and then use the gratitude prediction model to process the data in order to generate a “gratitude score” for each individual.The technology will enable philanthropic organisations to use the gratitude scores generated by the system to optimise resource allocation and reduce the number of resources required to obtain a target objective. The algorithm will prioritise prospects based on their varying levels of gratitude, thereby optimising the allocation of the organisation’s limited resources according to the prioritisation. Nathan Chappell, President of Futurus Group, said: Advertisementlast_img read more

Energy Amendment Adopted, Praised

first_img SHARE Facebook Twitter Several amendments were offered during the Senate Ag Committee’s farm bill markup Thursday. The Committee accepted an amendment offered by North Dakota’s Kent Conrad to continue energy programs with 800-million dollars in mandatory funding over five years. According to Chair Debbie Stabenow – the Congressional Budget Office ruled that savings elsewhere in the bill made it possible to fund the proposal. Among other programs – the breakdown of funds includes 241-million dollars for the Rural Energy for America Program and 193-million for the Bioenergy Crop Assistance Program. The amendment was approved by voice vote.The Advanced Ethanol Council applauded the move – stating there is no more urgent need in this country today than creating new jobs and reducing the nation’s dependence on foreign oil. The council says the programs reauthorized and streamlined are doing that – and will continue to help with job creation and replacing foreign oil with homegrown, renewable energy production when signed into law. While the AEC believes it’s also important to address the tax piece for advanced biofuels by the end of the year – they called Thursday’s action a critical first step toward providing continuity for American farmers and advanced biofuel producers.The National 25x’25 Alliance is also commending the decision to provide mandatory funding for energy programs. By adopting language that would assure funding is available for a number of key farm energy programs – 25x’25 says the Senate Ag Committee is encouraging the development of advanced biofuels and promoting other renewable energy and energy efficiency projects in rural America. Without mandatory spending – the group says Congress could authorize little to no money for programs that have helped revitalize rural America, allowed new ag markets to emerge and reduced the need for direct payments to farmers. The programs have no authorization beyond the end of the current farm bill and are zeroed out under Congressional Budget Office baseline estimates.

French journalists released after being held hostage for 18 months

first_img Help by sharing this information Organisation News AfghanistanAsia – Pacific News Follow the news on Afghanistan News Receive email alerts Situation getting more critical for Afghan women journalists, report says Reporters Without Borders is delighted by today’s release of French journalists Hervé Ghesquière and Stéphane Taponier and their Afghan interpreter Reza, who were abducted by a Taliban group on 29 December 2009 in the northeastern province of Kapisa while doing a report for the French TV station France 3.“We are greatly relieved by this news, which we have constantly awaited throughout the 547 days that the hostages spent in captivity,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Jean-François Julliard said. “Our recent meetings with the Afghan authorities and the French officials in charge of the case had led us to believe that they would be freed soon.“We hail all the efforts undertaken by the French and Afghan governments, which led to Ghesquière and Taponier and their interpreter being freed safe and sound as result of negotiation. We hope they will all be reunited with their families very soon.”Kapisa governor Abdol Hakim Akhonzadeh, who was reached in the town of Tagab, told Reporters Without Borders that the journalists were freed at around 5 p.m. today (local time). The Elysée Palace immediately notified their families, who were participating in a rally in support of the journalists in Igor Stravinski Square in Paris.Held on the day they would have completed 18 months in captivity, the rally included a display recreating the conditions in which they were being held. It was staged by Reporters Without Borders with the aim of increasing public awareness of their plight and launching a new appeal for their release.A Reporters Without Borders delegation consisting of Julliard, president Dominique Gerbaud and Afghanistan researcher Reza Moini visited Kabul from 20 to 25 June to gather information about the situation of the hostages. They met with information and culture minister Makhdom Raheen, foreign minister Zalmai Rasoul, national security commission chairman Rangin Dadfar Spanta, French ambassador Bernard Bajolet and various journalists’ associations.Afghanistan continues to be one of the world’s most dangerous countries for media personal and Afghan journalists pay a high price for working with foreign media. At least 15 journalists have been kidnapped by criminal or insurgent groups in Afghanistan since the start of 2009.

Following this Pakistan passed an ordinance named International Court of Justice (Review and Reconsideration) Ordinance, 2020 which allows Jadhav to file a petition for the review of his death sentence by the country’s military court before the Islamabad High Court through an application within 60 days of its promulgation.In the proceedings related to this, the Attorney General informed the High Court that Jadhav has reiterated his earlier stance and has preferred to pursue the remedy of clemency instead of invoking his right under the Ordinance of 2020″We are of the opinion that these proceedings and judicial review, on the basis of the judgment of the International Court, may not be meaningful and effective if Commander Jadhav and the Government of India decide not to exercise the course of action highlighted in the judgment of the International Court.”, the three judge bench headed by the Chief Justice Athar Minallah said.The Court also opined that the judgment of the International Court does not contemplate proceedings for review and reconsideration if Jadhav and / or the Government of India are not inclined or willing to avail the remedy specifically provided through the enactment of the Ordinance of 2020. “The obligation of the Government of Pakistan, prima-facie, appears to be confined to “providing” effective review and reconsideration. What if Commander Jadhav, exercising free will, or the Government of India decide not to pursue the statutory remedy provided for review and reconsideration? What then would be the status of compliance with the judgment of the International Court?”, the bench said.The court added that it is important to give an assurance to Commander Jadhav that his rights, particularly the right to a fair trial, is an integral factor of an effective review and reconsideration for a meaningful compliance with the judgment of the International Court. The court then issued these directives:The learned Attorney General shall ensure that copy of this order is provided to Commander Jadhav. The Government of Pakistan shall once again convey the orders passed in this petition to the Government of India to enable the latter to consider taking appropriate measures in order to ensure compliance with the judgment of the International Court. The Registrar of this Court shall send to the learned amici curiae, appointed vide our last order, copies of the petition and documents placed on the record. They are expected to assist us on the status of compliance with the of the International Court in the event that Commander Jadhav or the Government of India decide against availing the remedy provided under the Ordinance of 2020.The case is next posted on 6th October 2020. “We are in touch with Pakistan through diplomatic channels; Govt of India is taking all possible steps to ensure the safety of Kulbhushan Yadav”, the spokesperson of MEA said in response to this news.We are in touch with Pakistan through diplomatic channels; Govt of India is taking all possible steps to ensure the safety of #KulbhushanJadhav: MEA pic.twitter.com/4dSuZDyX52— DD News (@DDNewslive) September 3, 2020 Click here to Read/Download OrderRead Order Next Storylast_img read more
