Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Royston Wild | Thursday, 31st December, 2020 center_img Image source: Getty Images The uncertain economic environment hasn’t discouraged me from continuing to buy UK shares in 2020. And I plan to keep building my Stocks and Shares ISA next year too. The broader outlook is fraught with problems — Covid-19 and otherwise — but there are still many companies that should deliver terrific shareholder profits in the short term and beyond.Here’s a cluster of top-quality UK shares I’d be happy to buy for my own ISA in 2021:5G 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…#1: Package powerhousesGetting a slice of the e-commerce segment is, in my opinion, a must-do for every UK share investor worth their salt. I’ve bought logistics and warehousing specialists Tritax Big Box and Clipper Logistics in 2020 to boost my own exposure. But there are other ways to do it too. Online fashion retailers ASOS or Boohoo are prime examples. Investors can also buy stocks such as address verification provider GB Group or online marketing assistant dotDigital as well. The list is vast.One other e-commerce play on my radar today is Royal Mail. Couriers like this are getting rich as parcel traffic increases, and this particular operator has seen UK revenues leap by £380m year-on-year during April-November as a result. And the UK share is investing heavily in technology to capitalise on the online shopping boom to its max in the years ahead.#2: A top-class UK tech shareThe digital revolution creates stunning profits opportunities for many UK shares over the next decade. One of these on my radar is Kape Technologies, one of London’s leading cyber security companies.2020 has witnessed a sharp spike in cyber attacks and online fraud. Yet many companies remain ill-equipped to battle this soaring problem. That gives the likes of Kape ample sales opportunities. According to Bain & Company, just 43% of executives believe their firms follow best practices for cybersecurity. The consultancy reckons the problem is even worse than this however. It says that “only about 24% of firms actually meet that bar.”#3: Another fortune-builderI already own Ibstock in my Stocks and Shares ISA. But I’m thinking of increasing my holdings in 2021, given the bright outlook for housebuilding in this country. The government needs to create 300,000 new homes a year by the middle of the decade to meet the Britain’s housing requirements. And this UK share, with its wide network of brick manufacturing plants and catalogue of over 450-plus product types, is well-placed to capitalise on this phenomenon.Things haven’t been easy for Ibstock this year as Covid-19-related construction site shutdowns has hit brick demands. But volumes are back in recovery and margins are rising at a ripping rate as well, giving it strong momentum moving into 2021. This is a UK share I plan to hold for the next 10 years and possibly beyond. Royston Wild owns shares of Clipper Logistics, Ibstock, and Tritax Big Box REIT. The Motley Fool UK has recommended ASOS, boohoo group, Clipper Logistics, dotDigital Group, Ibstock, and Tritax Big Box REIT.

9/11 – a pretext for war

first_imgLook at the 9/11 commemorations for what they are: an opportunity for the U.S. ruling class to use a collective trauma to whip up jingoist and super-patriotic sentiment. The goal of this whipping up is to convince much of the population to rally around the U.S. flag and support Pentagon military intervention anywhere in the world.In 2001, the ruling group in George W. Bush’s White House used the trauma to declare a “War on Terror” as a pretext to unleash wars of terror on the people of the world.That’s no exaggeration. According to a 2020 study by the prestigious Watson Institute of Brown University, U.S.-backed wars since Sept. 11, 2001, have transformed a minimum of 37 million people into refugees, driving them from their homes with only their clothes, starving them and their children. The study involved Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, the Philippines, Libya, and Syria, for which both Republican and Democratic administrations can be blamed. (tinyurl.com/y2h5uxn3)The Bush administration’s neocons and their successors in the Democratic administration had a goal. The goal was to reconquer, for imperialist domination, parts of the world that had achieved a certain amount of sovereignty. The existence of the Soviet Union until 1991 had defended that sovereignty from direct imperialist intervention in most cases. With that defense now removed, the Empire has been waging war to replace its yoke firmly on the backs of the world’s people.   Whether refugees from this U.S. strategy fled inside their country, fled to neighboring states or tried to make it to wealthier places in Europe or the United States, each one has a tale of human misery. Each piece of suffering was caused by imperialist strategists seeking obscene profits. And that includes the millions of people killed in these wars.Recall the official public details of the September 2001 attacks. The Saudi citizens in al Qaida, allegedly angry over the U.S. occupation of their country since 1990, targeted symbols of imperialist power: Wall Street financial capital, the Pentagon war machine, and − with the aborted Pennsylvania plane crash that both Trump and Biden visited − probably the U.S. Capitol.  Bush’s gang punished none of its Saudi allies. Instead, they wielded the popular trauma like a club. They first invaded Afghanistan, then invaded and occupied oil-rich Iraq. In the name of the “War on Terror,” Bush’s administration and, following it, Barack Obama’s Democratic administration intervened with weapons or fighters in the countries named in the Watson study. Trump has followed by fronting bi-partisan threats against Iran and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and has imposed murderous sanctions on many other peoples, including those of Cuba and Venezuela, stretching beyond all recognition the concept of “War on Terror.”The 9/11 attack on symbols of U.S. oppression also had human victims − a real cross section of the U.S. population who worked in the World Trade Center, including all types of essential workers who maintain buildings, serve and clean up food, as well as every type of office worker, of all beliefs and from all parts of the world, including all oppressed nationalities, gender identities, able-bodied and disabled. People who wrote then and continue to write for this newspaper worked at the WTC or near enough to share the risks and the trauma, and we mourn the victims. These losses make us even angrier at U.S. strategists who use the anniversary to again manipulate the feelings of people here, hyping up a false national identity to build toward the next imperialist war.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

She takes over from Debora Wright, CEO of Inner Images, who held the position for the last two years.Cynthia first turned to the American Cancer Society in December 2001 to get her life back after she was diagnosed with breast cancer.“As a cancer survivor, I know how critically important the Society’s services, support, research and advocacy are to the well-being of patients and their loved ones,” she said. “I’m excited to take on this challenge and invite anyone who wants to make a real difference to join me in finishing the fight against cancer.”The Los Angeles Regional Council convenes the Society’s local volunteer leadership to advance the Society’s mission and fundraising initiatives in Los Angeles, Ventura, and Santa Barbara Counties. Cynthia will head volunteer efforts to build partnerships, increase awareness of Society programs and services, raise funds to support cancer research, free patient services and education programs and engage survivors, caregivers and diverse communities to fight back against cancer.A dedicated volunteer for more than a decade, Cynthia was 2015 chair of the Society’s San Gabriel Valley Leadership Council, and 2014 and 2015 chair for the downtown LA Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk with 10,000 participants this year. She chaired the Society’s Claremont Relay for Life and co-chaired its annual San Gabriel Valley gala. Cynthia is also an American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN) legislative ambassador, advocating for more cancer research funding, improved access to cancer care, and fighting back against cancer at all levels of government.Originally from Upland, California, Cynthia owns Mariposa Eco Consulting in Pasadena, which assists public agencies, private companies and organizations in managing resource recovery programs and recycling mandates, sustainable program development, and greenhouse gas measurement. She holds a Bachelor of Arts and a Master’s degree in public administration from California State University, San Bernardino. Cynthia and her husband Ken have two children, Angelique and Kyle, a son-in-law, Frank, and three grandsons, Hayden, Hunter, and Harrison.About the American Cancer SocietyThe American Cancer Society is a global grassroots force of more than three million volunteers saving lives and fighting for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community.
