Bolstering one’s position in companies that are performing well is a great way to get rich. And that’s precisely what I did last week with Anglo Pacific Group (LSE:APF).The opportunityAnglo Pacific is a mining company that doesn’t do any mining. That may sound odd at first, but it’s actually quite brilliant. The firm provides funding for other mining businesses – like Rio Tinto and BHP Group – to develop and operate new sites in exchange for royalties in the form of minerals dug up from the ground.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…I’ve previously explored how Anglo Pacific’s unique business model creates extraordinary levels of profitability within an industry that has virtually no pricing power. Since then, two new pieces of information have been released – third-quarter earnings, and an exciting announcement for shareholders.The earnings report mostly followed expectations, with a slight decline in royalty revenue from £6m to £5.7m. This reduction hardly good news. However, the cause is mainly due to a longwall change out at the Kestrel mine in Australia.Put simply, the mine was extended and fourth quarter royalties are expected to see an increase in production.Another change out is planned for Q3 2021. It is expected to cause a similar level of disruption but once again, will further increase the production of the site.A more impressive result is that two sites extracting uranium and vanadium saw a triple percentage growth of 117% and 131%, respectively. Despite the massive disruptions from Covid-19, both minerals – in addition to copper and iron – are reaching multi-year highs in value.Share buyback schemeBeyond earnings, it successfully completed a £5m share buyback scheme. As a reminder, share buybacks are an alternative to dividends, as a method of returning profits to shareholders. Buying back shares reduces the number of shares available on the market and thus increases the value for existing shareholders.Therefore, since Anglo Pacific has around 180m shares outstanding, the firm indirectly paid a dividend 2.8p per share. This is in addition to the direct dividend payments of 1.75p due on 13th November 2020 and 17th February 2021.At the current stock price of £1.03, collectively these payments represent a 6.1% return on investment over the next three months.The bottom lineThe closure of mines back in March had a significant impact on operations. As such, the stock is unlikely to achieve its historical double-digit growth this year. However, the performance loss is not due to a problem with the company but rather a pandemic that affected the entire world.Of course, this is only my opinion. But it also appears to be similar to the views of the management team. Several of the board members – including CEO Julian Treger – have been buying up shares over the past month.In light of all this new information combined with an incredibly attractive share price, I have doubled my stake in the business in my attempt to get rich.

Carnesale’s idea leads to Florida Hospital Apopka partnership

Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Please enter your comment! Awesome job Chuck! Barbara McLeod   “I wanted to get a two or three-month jump ahead of the real Station #5 opening. If we can get to someone in need or a house on fire within three minutes, why wouldn’t we start now?”  Opening two temporary fire stations to improve response times can be described as innovative or visionary, but the AFD’s usage of a hospital site might be distinctive in another way.  For over 40 years the AFD and FHP have been partners in the community, but now with the completion of its new hospital on Harmon Road, that relationship is taking the next step.The AFD is converting a 2,000 square foot construction trailer and additional space on the hospital property into a temporary fire station that will house nine firefighters (three at a time working 24-hour shifts), and a fire truck until Fire Station #6 is completed.According to Carnesale, and research done by The Apopka Voice, this may well be the only fire station operating on a hospital property anywhere in the United States.Carnesale is pleased with the partnership and the location – which is nearby to the actual Fire Station #6 site.“When the AFD first started with an ambulance service Florida Hospital was the hospital we transported our patients to. So with the larger facility and rapidly-growing community we have in this section of the city, we presented the idea of placing a fire station on the new campus, and they took us up on it.”The temporary site of Fire Station #6 on the Florida Hospital campus will open on December 3rd.Tim Cook is equally pleased with his new tenants. “To have our local first responders right on site creates a synergy that will be beneficial to each organization and most importantly our entire community,” said Cook, the senior vice president/administrator for Florida Hospital Apopka. “The closer the hospital team and fire and rescue teams work together, the greater the potential for constant improvement on how we respond together to people in need… and while proximity is not the only way to achieve that synergy it will greatly enhance it. We couldn’t be more positive about having fire and rescue right on campus.”  Carnesale also sees the synergy described by Cook. “That gives them (FHP) faster fire protection, and it gives us quicker response times to three major roadways (the 429, 415 and the 451),” he said. “It can be challenging to get to accident scenes on those roads, but with a station at the hospital we will have quicker response times to those roads as well.”center_img James1958  According to Carnesale, both sites will remain active until the permanent fire stations are completed.Fire Station #5 is projected to open in February of 2018, Congratulations Chuck you are doing a wonderful job November 29, 2017 at 10:23 am Reply 4 COMMENTS Good stuff AFD! Keep up the good work November 30, 2017 at 11:57 am Two new temporary fire stations opening in DecemberThe Apopka Fire Department is about to get faster, and more responsive thanks to an idea by its fire chief.On December 3rd, two temporary fire stations will open at the new Florida Hospital (FHP) on Harmon Road, and at the Northwest Recreation Facility. It was Chuck Carnesale’s vision to open the stations simultaneously. He considers it a commitment to Apopka to make this bold move.“Opening two new fire stations on the same day is historical for our department,” said Carnesale, the Chief of the AFD. “It shows how serious we are about public safety and getting to people quickly that need help.” Please enter your name here Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Reply November 29, 2017 at 1:28 pm   The temporary station at the Northwest Recreation Facility will be staffed by seven firefighters per shift and will have a fire truck, ambulance and mini rescue squad on site.

Very Suspicious Serge Betsen knockout

first_imgMonday Oct 8, 2007 Very Suspicious Serge Betsen knockout On Saturday night the All Blacks got knocked out of the tournament by France, and as some will say, by a forward pass. Regardless, France will play England in the Semi Final next weekened and probably without key flanker Serge Betsen due to a concussion.Betsen got knocked out in the opening stages of the match from what looked like an accidental collision. We’ve taken a close look at the footage and picked up on something that, although not 100% conclusive, looks very incriminating to me.Now, despite the fact that New Zealand wont play any further part in this World Cup, we thought we’d bring it to your attention, more for discussion and awareness than anything else.Joe Rokocoko cleaned up a messy lineout and charged into Serge Betsen. France’s defensive powerhouse Betsen was left “out like a light” on the floor.At first glance it looks like he copped an accidental elbow while making the tackle. A look at the alternate replay angle provided in the video reveals that Betsen appeared to be getting to his feet. Then, watch his head as Keith Robinson enters the picture.A player blocks a full view of the incident, but Betsen collapsing back to the ground and Robinson’s fist sends a pretty clear picture.Decide for yourself. UPDATE 11/10/07:I still feel theres a possibility of it being a closed hand punch/push which forced Betsen onto his own players knee, but thats my opinion and I’m only one of 5000 people that visit here everyday.So, if you disagree thats cool, you’re probably right. Opinions are like assholes – everyones got one, and we all think that everyone elses stinks.Case closed.

FBI report: Another slap against Trayvon Martin

first_imgTrayvon MartinThe struggle for justice for Trayvon Martin, the murdered African-American youth, recently made headlines again. The 17-year-old Martin was unarmed when he was stalked and fatally shot by George Zimmerman, a self-proclaimed neighborhood watch person, in a gated community in Sanford, Fla., on Feb. 26.Zimmerman used the “Stand Your Ground” law to justify the killing by saying that Martin attacked him first, and therefore he had the right to self-defense. The Sanford police accepted Zimmerman’s version of the events when he was brought in for questioning and decided not to arrest him.This injustice sparked major outrage, initiated by social media throughout the U.S. and other parts of the world. Led by Black youth — like in Miami where Martin attended high school — national protests, large and small, grew on a daily basis and forced the Seminole County District Attorney’s office to arrest and jail Zimmerman on second-degree murder charges on April 20. Less than a week later, Zimmerman was released on $15,000 bond.In early July, the same judge who set the original $150,000 bail revoked the bond, claiming that Zimmerman and his spouse had lied about their income, failing to reveal large donations made by right-wingers through Zimmerman’s website. Bail was then set at $1 million. Zimmerman was freed on $100,000 bond on July 6 after spending one night in jail. No trial date has yet been set.On July 13, the Federal Bureau of Investigation released photos of the hoodie worn by Martin the night he was shot, which depicted the gunshot wound. In its report, the FBI claims Zimmerman was not motivated by racism to kill Martin, but by fear of the hoodie he was wearing. The report was based on interviews with those who knew Zimmerman.‘Your hoodie made me do it!’Investigator Chris Serinone told the FBI that he “believed that Zimmerman’s actions were not based on Martin’s skin color, rather based on his attire, the total circumstances of the encounter and the previous burglary suspects in the community.” (cnn.com, July 13)The FBI is part of a larger federal investigation that the U.S. Department of Justice is carrying out at the request of Martin’s parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin. His parents and their lawyer, Benjamin Crump, adamantly maintain that Zimmerman racially profiled Martin.While hoodies are a popular form of dress for youth of various nationalities and social strata, there is a negative stigma connected to Black and Latino/a people who wear them. In the minds of many in U.S. society, which is riddled with white supremacist attitudes, hoodies worn by youth of color are synonymous with gang membership.In essence, the FBI report is an attempt to evoke public sympathy for Zimmerman, by saying he was justified in shooting Martin because he felt threatened by the youth’s clothing. The report helps to lay the basis for Zimmerman’s acquittal even before the trial begins.The tragic shooting of Trayvon Martin is not an isolated incident. It is part and parcel of the broader issue of racial profiling of youth of color, who are branded as being a threat to society. In reality, these youth are horribly disenfranchised, especially if they lack jobs and education.This raises the question of who is the victim and who is the aggressor. Nine times out of 10, youth of color are seen as the aggressors, and therefore, it is more or less accepted to “get them before they get you” — whether by police brutality, incarceration or vigilantism as in Zimmerman’s case.The courts, the police and the laws under capitalism cannot be relied upon to bring justice for youth like Trayvon Martin, which would mean a guilty conviction for Zimmerman. The progressive movement must not only continue to support the Black community’s demand for justice for Martin, but take it a step further by joining in building and sustaining a movement to demand jobs, not jails and police terror for all working-class youth.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Farm Groups Respond to Executive Order on Antibiotic Resistance

first_img By Gary Truitt – Sep 18, 2014 Home Indiana Agriculture News Farm Groups Respond to Executive Order on Antibiotic Resistance SHARE Facebook Twitter Previous articleClosing CommentsNext articleYields Good, Moisture High in SW Indiana Corn Gary Truitt President Barack Obama signed an executive order announced Thursday calling for a five year plan to track highly resistant bacterial infections.  The executive order came as a response to bacteria that is resistant to antibiotic treatment, a problem that’s been noted to kill 23,000 people each year. In the executive order, Obama stated “The Food and Drug Administration, in coordination with USDA, shall continue taking steps to eliminate the use of medically important classes of antibiotics for growth promotion purposes in food-producing animals.” American Farm Bureau Federation President Bob Stallman released a statement saying. “Just as parents do not give antibiotics to a child, except when necessary and prescribed by a doctor, farmers don’t rush to treat animals with antibiotics.” Stallman encouraged those developing a strategy on this issue to protect the nation’s people and farms to talk with farmers and ranchers during the process. Stallman added that “healthy animals mean healthful meat, milk and eggs.”National Pork Producers Council President Howard Hill said the White House acknowledged something that the NPPC has been saying for years: “More epidemiological research is needed to understand the key drivers of increased antibiotic resistance.” He said America’s pork producers who abide by strict antimicrobial stewardship programs are committed to protecting public health and producing a safe food. Hill said “NPPC is pleased that the administration agrees that more research is needed and looks forward to working further with FDA and USDA on determining the most informed and appropriate solutions for combating antibiotic resistant bacteria.”?

Pike Animal Shelter begins planning for second annual Fur Fest

first_img Animal lovers put on your goggles because the fur is about to fly.Chris Schubert, Pike Animal Shelter board member, said last year’s Fur Fest was so much fun that many have indicated they want to be there when the fur starts to fly this year.The first fur to fly will be at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 10 at the Troy Sportsplex entertainment room. Hotdogs and soft drinks will be furnished and everyone is invited to share in a time of food, fun and fellowship while working for a good cause. The Fur Fest was, of course, a pet-friendly event and pet owners brought their dogs and cats and their kids and, Schubert said everyone had a good time.“We had a climbing wall, a baseball throwing contest and different games and activities, food and entertainment,” Schubert said. “Of course, we had to suffer through the mechanics of an event like this but we learned a lot so this year’s Fur Fest will be even better.”The organizational meeting on Wednesday night will be an opportunity to get involved with the Fur Fest when the first fur flies. It will also be an opportunity to explore fundraising ideas for the Pike Animal Shelter on the Henderson Highway.“Fundraising is what the Fur Fest is all about and that’s what the Pike Animal Shelter is all about right now,” Schubert said. “We are in the process of raising funds for a state-of-the-art animal shelter to be built on shelter property on the Henderson Highway. At the present time, we have a little more than $37,000 toward the $385,000-plus that we need to build the shelter that we have planned.” Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits “This will be our organizational meeting for another great Fur Fest,” Schubert said. “We want to invite everybody to be a part of the fun of planning this event. We’re going to do all the things that made the Fur Fest special last year and then we’re going to make it even better this year.”The 2007 Fur Fest was an even greater success than anyone had dared to imagine.“With it being the first event of this type, we really didn’t know what to expect,” Schubert said. “We would have been happy with 20 to 30 people showing up but we had about 300.

Thousand Oaks suspect died from self-inflicted wound: Officials

first_imgABC News(THOUSAND OAKS, Calif.) — The veteran suspected of opening fire at a Thousand Oaks, California, bar, killing 12, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, an official from the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office told ABC News. Ian David Long, 28, an ex-Marine, fatally shot 11 people at the Borderline Bar and Grill, as well as a police officer who responded just before midnight Wednesday.Preliminary information indicates that Long walked into the bar, immediately shot a group of security guards and employees standing near the entrance to the bar and then paused to text or post to social media, according to law enforcement sources briefed on the investigation.“It’s too bad I won’t get to see all the illogical and pathetic reasons people will put in my mouth as to why I did it,” he wrote at 11:24 p.m., according to documents obtained by ABC News. “Fact is I had no reason to do it, and I just thought… life is boring so why not?”Three minutes later, he posted, “Yeah… I’m insane, but the only thing you people do after these shootings is ‘hopes and prayers’ … or ‘keep you in my thoughts’ … every time… and wonder why these keep happening.”Long’s social media were taken down at the request of law enforcement.Long, a former U.S. Marine, showed signs of post-traumatic stress disorder, authorities said, but there’s little information available yet on what prompted the attack late Wednesday night at the Borderline Bar and Grill. Long was found dead inside the bar.“He was somewhat irate. Acting a little irrationally,” Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said at a press conference. “They felt he might be suffering from PTSD, the fact he was a veteran.”Long, 28, lived near the bar with his mother, neighbors told police, describing the suspect as a troubled man who battled fits of rage.“I think I do recall some times when he was struggling with some issues internally,” said Todd Stratton, a friend of Long’s. “I didn’t know [about] PTSD, but his girlfriend would kind of ask him about things going on with him, because he’d get really upset sometimes and kind of shut down and he wouldn’t want to talk about it to people. He’d just kind of close himself up, and I think he had a really hard time reaching out for help because of his personality.” FBI officials have swarmed the house, desperate to find the motive behind his alleged shooting rampage.One neighbor told ABC News she called the police on Long once after he allegedly got into a fight with his mother. Another neighbor said Long rarely left home and that his mother told her that he was getting violent.Dean said Long had several previous run-ins with police, including an incident in April where deputies were called to his home in Newbury Park because he was reportedly behaving erratically.“They went to the house, they talked to him. He was somewhat irate, acting a little irrationally,” Dean said. “They called out our crisis intervention team, our mental health specialist, who met with him, talked to him and cleared him.” “It’s difficult, because I’ve been doing this for 41 years, and you don’t leave things unfinished,” Dean, who’d been considering retirement, told ABC News’ David Muir.Dean was a close friend of one of the shooting victims, Sgt. Ron Helus, who died in the line of duty.“I think we try to look at the core and try to understand what happened and see if there’s a way that we can stop it. We all try to make sense of the senseless.” Authorities said hundreds were inside when the suspect walked in to the country-western bar with a gun and opened fire. The weapon was equipped with a an extended-ammunition magazine, allowing it to hold more than the normal 10 bullets, so it’s unclear how many total rounds he may have had, police said.Zach Frye and Tyler Odenkirk told ABC News that two of their friends who worked as security guards at Borderline were among the dead. A Borderline bouncer said they were surely among the heroes.“I know they did everything they could in their final moments,” the unnamed bouncer said. “We were told one of them went out a hero. He went out fighting the shooter.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
