I’m looking today at mid-cap FTSE 250 stocks I think could have the potential to move up into the elite FTSE 100 index. For this to happen, a company’s market capitalisation (share price multiplied by its number of shares in issue) has to pass a certain threshold. Typically, this requires a strong rise in the share price.The FTSE bods look at the indexes every three months to see if any changes are needed. Right now, there are three FTSE 250 stocks I think have prospects of being promoted to the FTSE 100 during the course of 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…ITV (LSE: ITV) will be familiar to most readers. Medical devices group ConvaTec (LSE: CTEC) and veterinary drugs firm Dechra Pharmaceuticals (LSE: DPH) will probably be less familiar.Blue-chip bounce backITV had been a longstanding member of the FTSE 100 before crashing out in last September’s review. Having started 2020 at 150p, the ITV share price had slumped to 57p by the review date.The Covid-19 pandemic hit the company hard. Shuttered studios and a slump in advertising meant its two main sources of revenue plummeted. However, investors have turned cautiously optimistic since September. We’ve seen a revival in the share price to a current 107p.As vaccines are rolled out, production and advertising should begin to recover. If this happens, I wouldn’t be surprised to see the ITV share price continue to head back towards 150p. And the company return to the FTSE 100 index.Of course, if the vaccines rollout doesn’t carry through to a recovery in production and advertising, the ITV share price may not rise.A lurking FTSE 250 stockThe ConvaTec share price ended 2020 in the same 200p area as it started the year. Mind, it was a volatile journey. The shares briefly went sub-150p in the spring market crash. At today’s 202p, the company lurks outside the FTSE 100.ConvaTec is a global medical devices group focused on therapies for the management of chronic conditions. The increasing prevalence of such conditions provides a tailwind for the company.After wholesale boardroom changes a couple of years ago, management is making good progress towards realising ConvaTec’s full potential for profitable growth. Provided progress continues, I think the company could potentially make it into the FTSE 100 index this year.But this may not happen if progress stalls. For example, by poor execution of the strategy for profitable growth.Another FTSE 250 stock in contentionThe Dechra Pharmaceuticals share price ended 2020 some 17% higher than it started the year. And it’s still rising. At 3,690p, it’s up 7% so far in 2021. After the strong performance, Dechra’s joined ConvaTec within shouting distance of the FTSE 100.According to the company, the majority of its veterinary products (sold worldwide) are used to treat medical conditions for which there’s no other effective solution. Or have a clinical or dosing advantage over competitor products. The company is growing fast, both organically and by acquisitions.Dechra’s chief executive has steered the firm for 20 years. Provided he continues to increase the value of the business — and the share price follows suit — I think this is another FTSE 250 stock that could potentially ascend to the FTSE 100 before the year is out.There’s always risk though, including that Dechra could make a value-destroying, rather than value-enhancing, acquisition. In which case, the share price could fall rather than rise.

Please enter your email address here Hacksaw Ridge is the story of Desmond Doss“Hacksaw Ridge” is the extraordinary true story of WWII medic Desmond Doss, played by Andrew Garfield (“The Amazing Spiderman”), who, in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WWII, miraculously saved 75 men in a matter of hours without firing or carrying a gun.He was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines without a weapon, except the simple prayer he uttered before he single-handedly evacuated the wounded from behind enemy lines, under constant enemy gunfire and artillery bombardment. Doss’ courage and faith won the admiration of his commanders and fellow soldiers, as he saved the lives of the very men who had persecuted him for refusing to carry a gun. He believed the war was just, but to kill under any circumstance was wrong. Doss was labeled the first conscientious objector (he called himself a “conscientious cooperator” as he volunteered) to receive the Congressional Medal of Honor.Doss originally from Lynchburg Virginia, was a Seventh Day Adventist who enlisted in the Army as a combat medic thinking it would not require him to carry a gun. And even though the Army tried to convince him otherwise, they didn’t change his mind on carrying a gun. A law passed in 1940 allowing conscientious objectors to serve in the war in “noncombatant” positions.During a twelve-hour period, Doss saved 75 men before he became wounded himself. During this Medal of Honor presentation, President Harry S. Truman warmly held the hand of Corporal Desmond Thomas Doss, as his citation was read to those gathered at the White House on October 12, 1945. “I’m proud of you,” Truman said. “You really deserve this. I consider this a greater honor than being president.”Before being honorably discharged from the Army in 1946, Desmond developed tuberculosis. His illness progressed and at the age of 87, Corporal Desmond Thomas Doss died on March 23, 2006. He is buried in the National Cemetery located in Chattanooga, Tennessee.Many are calling “Hacksaw Ridge” the comeback movie for director Mel Gibson. An inspiring movie that tells the story of a real life hero. “Hacksaw Ridge” is playing now at the UA Riverwalk Theatre at 2141 East Semoran Boulevard in Apopka. Please enter your comment!

FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this De los dos partidos políticos del gran capital en Estados Unidos, los demócratas han sido considerados durante más de medio siglo como los más “liberales”, y los republicanos como los más reaccionarios. Pero cuando se trata de su actitud hacia la China Popular, ambos irradian hostilidad.El gobierno de Biden está ampliando lo que hizo Trump para azuzar el sentimiento antichino, no con un vil discurso de odio sino con una política exterior antichina. Biden ha impuesto ahora sanciones a 24 funcionarios chinos, acusándolos de “coerción y agresión” en relación con Hong Kong, que Washington parece considerar como parte de su propio territorio.Con toda esta actividad antichina al más alto nivel, ¿es de extrañar que se desborde hacia la violencia antiasiática dentro de Estados Unidos? Eso es lo que ha ocurrido en una confluencia de ataques anti-mujeres y anti-asiáticos en las últimas semanas.El grupo Stop AAPI Hate ha hecho un seguimiento de casi 3.800 incidentes de odio, discriminación o ataques a asiáticos en Estados Unidos desde marzo de 2020 hasta febrero de este año. Esa cifra está aumentando considerablemente. En Atlanta (Georgia), seis de las ocho personas asesinadas en un reciente tiroteo eran mujeres asiáticas que trabajaban en salones de masaje.Se está culpando a China de la pandemia, ya que el virus parece haber saltado primero de los animales a los humanos allí. Lo que no se menciona es que China ha hecho un trabajo increíble para derrotar al virus y proteger a su enorme población.El sitio web Coronavirus Update informa de que, hasta el 21 de marzo, China había registrado 90.099 casos y 4.636 muertes, con una población de poco más de 1.400 mil millones de habitantes. En cambio, en Estados Unidos se registraron 30,5 millones de casos y 555.300 muertes, con una población oficial de 332 millones de habitantes. Dicho de otro modo, con una población más de cuatro veces superior a la de EE.UU., China ha experimentado menos de 1/100 o el 1% de las muertes de EE.UU. por COVID-19. Esta enorme diferencia dice mucho sobre estos dos sistemas que compiten entre sí, uno basado en la propiedad privada capitalista y el otro en la propiedad social de los medios de producción. En China, la atención sanitaria es un derecho humano; aquí, es una necesidad por la que debemos luchar y pagar continuamente.Ahora es el momento, más que nunca, de solidarizarnos con nuestras hermanas y hermanos asiáticos que están siendo atacados. Son el objetivo no sólo de individuos odiosos, sino de un sistema que valora la riqueza y la propiedad por encima de las vidas humanas.Este sistema lucrativo necesita crear chivos expiatorios para la miseria que provoca. La solidaridad de la clase trabajadora es el único antídoto real contra el odio engendrado por este sistema perro come perro.
Mitchell is not the only journalist to be targeted in connection with their coverage of the protests in Okinawa Prefecture. Riot police detained Okinawa Times and Ryukyu Shimpo reporters while they were covering protests in August against the construction of US military helipads in the north of the prefecture. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on the US military authorities and the Japanese government to explain why the US military based on the southern island of Okinawa are conducting extensive surveillance of Japanese citizens, NGOs and journalists. The reporters were taken away from the protests although they had identified themselves as journalists to the police. The two newspapers and mass media labour unions condemned the actions of the police as “a serious violation of the free press by the state.” RSF has tried to reach the US Marine Corps in Okinawa because itbelieves it should explain its spying but it did not respond. Whenreached by Mitchell, the Pentagon refused to confirm whether it wasaware of the extent of the surveillance or at what level within theDefence Department it had been authorized. Organisation Follow the news on Japan The surveillance is revealed in 305 pages of documents published by British journalist Jon Mitchell, who obtained them under the US Freedom of Information Act. They consist of internal “intelligence bulletins” issued by the Criminal Investigation Division of the US Marine Corps in Okinawa Prefecture in May, June and July, emails written by senior officials and reports circulated by the US military police in one of the US camps. RSF_en Help by sharing this information One of the bulletins, dated 9 June, described a lecture that Mitchellgave about the US military’s environmental contamination. Itincluded a photo and short profile of him. One of the emailsdescribes him as “adversarial” and says his “tone of reportingis hostile.” Another says: “Cooperation with reporter hasconsistently been a non-starter. He has an agenda and is fairly openabout it.” Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s government nonetheless endorsed theactions of the police, setting a dangerous precedent for journalistscovering future demonstrations. Last year members of the rulingLiberal Democratic Party said financial pressure should be put onnewspapers such as Okinawa’s two main dailies which are critical ofgovernment policies while a former board member of national publicbroadcaster NHK said Okinawa Times and Ryukyu Shimpo should be dismantled all together. He thinks his coverage of local pacifist movements, protests againstthe US military bases and Japanese government policy is an additional reason for the decision to keep him under surveillance. to go further According to Mitchell, the US military are spying on him because of his journalistic activities, above all his coverage of theiroperations in Okinawa Prefecture and his revelations about environmental damage resulting from the US military presence and their disposal of chemical weapons on the island during the Cold War.

It is now under judicial control.Fehri, who is facing a possible 10-year jail sentence, has yet to be detained because he is still awaiting a summons to present himself to a police station.On the eve of the 24 August ruling, defence lawyers learned that a 3,000-page expert report had still not been sent to the criminal court although the judge issued his ruling on the basis of this report 24 hours later, after the 24 defendants had been presented in court. Furthermore, under article 114 of the criminal procedure code, the defence lawyers should have been notified of the prosecutions findings and should have been able to submit their own findings to the court before the hearing. In the event, the defence was not even notified that the hearing was going to take place. The fact that Fehri is only an alleged “accomplice” and that no detention order was issued for the main defendants constitutes yet another irregularity.”The criminal court’s sudden haste to deal with a case that began a year and a half ago and the flagrant procedural violations are at the very least surprising and raise questions about the motives of its judges,” Reporters Without Borders said.On the eve of the ruling, the National Union of Tunisian Journalists (SNJT) issued a statement claiming that Attounissia TV’s decision to suspend its satirical programme “Ellogique Essiyassi” was the result of “indirect” pressure from the authorities. There had been concern for the programme’s future ever since leading officials had expressed outrage about the way they were being mocked.In a further development, Attounissia TV cameraman Selim Trabelsi was assaulted last night in Tunis by four individuals who hit him with a stick and threatened him with a knife. His assailant’s mentioned Fehri’s name several times and, in an apparent threat to all of Attounissia TV’s journalists and technicians, said: “We will catch you one by one.” “The attacks and threats against media personnel must be taken seriously and those responsible must be punished,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The authorities have a duty to guarantee the safety of all Tunisians living in Tunisia, including journalists.

According to their searchable map of properties the county can foreclose on, 1,641 owners are in danger.According to Mecklenburg Tax Collector Neal Dixon, the county has only had to foreclose 36 to 40 times in recent years. But September 12, residents five or more years past due were notified of their inclusion on the map, which is intended to find bidders for the properties.“We do think there are properties that can be useful to a new owner,” Dixon said in an earlier report warning of the incoming decision. “Addressing these delinquencies will take property where taxes have gone unpaid for various reasons and potentially turn it into property that will generate tax revenue again.”The Office of the Tax Collector worked with two legal services firms and one real estate service firm to complete the process, with the law firms ready to handle collections while the real estate firm prepares to market the foreclosed properties. If a property has no takers, the county plans to bid on the property itself.The map, which any party can see here, includes land only, residential with structure, and commercial with structure foreclosures. Once a user clicks on a property, they can see the address, property description, amount due, assessed value, number of bills, and attorney assigned to the property.The county’s policy is to work with taxpayers who have trouble paying their bills, but due to state law, the county cannot consider demographic or socioeconomic factors in going after delinquents. Officials are urging taxpayers to contact them before their tax due date.“We’re trying to break the cycle of delinquency,” Dixon said.
