See all posts by Royston Wildcenter_img Have some spare investment capital knocking around? Afraid to put that to use as the coronavirus crisis rolls on? Fear not. I reckon Hilton Food Group (LSE: HFG) is a brilliant buy for ISA investors in these uncertain times.We will all need to continue eating whether a painful and prolonged recession is coming or not. This makes companies involved in getting food onto our plates, like packaging giant Hilton, one of the safest bets out there.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…The FTSE 250 firm’s decision last month to maintain its dividend policy underlines its exceptional defensive qualities. Its sales outlook remains robust and it has a rock-solid balance sheet with plenty of cash on the books too. I’d happily buy Hilton despite its high price-to-earnings (P/E) multiple of above 25 times. It’s worth every penny in my book.Defence starAvon Rubber (LSE: AVON) makes respiratory protection and other equipment for the military, police and firefighters, as well as milking equipment for farmers. It’s another FTSE 250 share I’d happily buy for my ISA. Mankind’s attraction to conflict has been a consistent aspect of human history. The geopolitical and terrorist threats that have boosted defence spending over the past decade are arguably more pronounced now than they were 10 years ago too. Expect such spending by major Western nations to remain robust.Sales data from the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute shows how military spending surged to multi-year peaks in 2019. There are signs emerging that defence expenditure will keep rising despite the costs of battling the coronavirus crisis in the near term and beyond too.For example, the US Indo-Pacific Command last month submitted a plan to Congress that would boost its spending by $20.1bn during the five years to 2026.Avon Rubber is a major supplier to the US armed forces and is thus in prime position to ride this environment. Its masks and body armour are in hot demand, and its recent acquisition of 3M’s ballistics business has reinforced its relationship with the Department of Defense still further.The FTSE 250 company’s forward P/E ratio of around 27 times doesn’t make it look cheap. This, though, is a fair valuation given Avon’s exceptional sales outlook that its cutting-edge products provides. This is a share I’d happily buy for my own Stocks & Shares ISA.Another ISA starShare pickers seeking safe havens should also pay Dechra Pharmaceuticals (LSE: DPH) close attention today, I feel. Healthcare is one of the most defensive sectors out there. And this one allows investors to ride the booming animalcare market.But it’s not just that spending on our companion animals should remain strong despite the upcoming recession. Dechra’s drugs are also widely used to help livestock producers. And so like Hilton Foods, our need to keep our bellies full provides this FTSE 250 share with strong earnings visibility too.This share commands a prospective P/E ratio of 29 times. I don’t care, though. I’d happily buy it for my ISA during these tough times and hold it for many years to come.

HSUS Claims Oscars Ad Helped, Not Harmed Donations

first_img The Humane Society of the United States says a television commercial against the organization generated a $1 million contribution to support the group. Meatingplace reports that HSUS CEO Wayne Pacelle says the 60-second commercial prompted several supporters to contact HSUS, and one told him, “She is going to give us an additional $1 million” to fight the accusations against HSUS in the commercial. The commercial by the Center for Consumer Freedom claimed that HSUS only spent a small fraction of the money it raised to support animal shelters over the course of a fiscal year. The Center for Consumer Freedom, however, was unmoved by the HSUS claim the ad created a donation windfall. Will Coggin, director of research at told Meatingplace “we’re going to run the ad with increasing intensity. If it backfired as Wayne Pacelle claims, then he should pay us to run it.” By Hoosier Ag Today – Mar 2, 2016 Previous articleClosing CommentsNext articleUSDA’s Krysta Haden Joins DuPont Hoosier Ag Today SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter HSUS Claims Oscars Ad Helped, Not Harmed Donations Home Indiana Agriculture News HSUS Claims Oscars Ad Helped, Not Harmed Donationslast_img read more

Reporters Without Borders Best of the Blogs 2013 Awards go to Togo and Iran

first_imgNews Togolese authorities urged to lift newspaper’s four-month suspension Follow the news on Togo to go further RSF_en March 11, 2021 Find out more Togo court upholds “baseless and disproportionate” newspaper closures Convicting “petrolgate” journalist of defamation would be disastrous, RSF says News News TogoAfrica center_img The Togolese journalist Fabbi Kouassie has won the Best of the Blogs “Reporters Without Borders Award” 2013 for her blog, Fabbikouassi’s Blog. The prize is awarded within the framework of “The Bobs – Best of Online Activism” contest, held each year since 2005 by Reporters Without Borders and the German radio station Deutsche Welle. It aims to promote the diversity and commitment of the international blogosphere and is awarded to bloggers who demonstrate outstanding commitment in the campaign for freedom of expression on the internet and against all types of censorship.In Fabbikouassi’s Blog (, the young human rights activist Fabbi Kouassi writes about controversial topics that are hushed up in the media of her own country with its autocratic government, and that are also barely discussed in the public spheres of other countries: everyday violence, the dangers journalists face and the constant fear of police brutality and oppression. Only recently, the police in Togo once again showed their violent face to journalists when they used tear gas to prevent them from demonstrating against a new media law. ( The prize honours her exceptional commitment to freedom of expression in a country which, despite all the abuses and irregularities, is often forgotten – like many other regions in Africa.Fourteen blogs in 14 different contest languages made it to the final of this year’s “Reporters Without Borders Award”. In total there were more than 4,200 entries for “The Bobs”. An international jury composed of 15 members selected the winners last weekend. The winner of the “Best Blog Award” is Li Chengpeng, one of China’s best-known bloggers, authors and social critics. Prizes in other categories went among others to bloggers in Morocco, Bangladesh and also an international collective. The public’s choice for the “Reporters Without Borders Award” is Kambiz Hosseini, who discusses the human rights situation in Iran in a weekly podcast. In total more than 90,000 online votes were cast for the competition.The prizes in the six main categories will be handed to the winners at the Deutsche Welle Global Media Forum in Bonn on 18 June 2013. In addition, the Cuban blogger Yoani Sánchez will collect her prize at the re:publica internet conference in Berlin today. With her blog Generación Y, Sánchez won both the “Best Blog Award” and the Public’s Prize of the “Reporters Without Borders Award” in 2008, but wasn’t allowed to leave Cuba until last month. Last year the jury selected the Bengali blogger Abu Sufian, who fights against corruption and the arbitrariness of the courts, as the winner of the “Reporters Without Borders Award”. The Public’s Prize went to the blog Invisible Tibet, in which Tsering Woeser reports on human rights abuses in Tibet from Beijing.

No, he isn’t plotting some dastardly international espionage,but wants to reply to a job advert to run the Catholic newspaper called theUniverse. This is just one of the unusualmanagement titles that readers have sent to Personnel Today since it launchedits competition last month.The most curious we’ve received isfrom a Swedish company called Wideyes – it has a senior manager called”company gardener”, but apparently it has more to do with corporategrowth than green fingers.   Guru has decided to put off thejudging until next week, so if you’ve heard of any other ridiculous titles,send an e-mail to the usual address and you could win a bottle of bubbly.HR staff find it hardto mask true feelingsSometimes it can be hard for HRprofessionals to come up with anything original to write down for an employeeperformance evaluation. Guru was once accused of having “a zest forlife” in an early job review, which he later realised was boss-speak forhaving an attention deficit disorder. Here are a few more blunt effortsfrom one large US corporation that will remain nameless: “Since my lastreport, this employee has reached rock bottom and has started to dig”, or”works well under constant supervision and when cornered like a rat in atrap” or even the priceless “when his IQ reaches 50, he shouldsell”. But Guru’s personal favourites are, “I would not allow thisemployee to breed”, and “this employee is depriving a village somewhereof an idiot”.
