Enter Your Email Address Royston Wild | Thursday, 18th March, 2021 | More on: BWNG PDG The early April deadline by which time stock investors must use this years ISA allowance is drawing close. I’ve been looking for some cheap UK shares to buy before the cut-off date. And I’ve come across some top-quality penny stocks I think could soar in value during the new bull market.Penny stocks are those that cost investors less than £1 to buy. Their cheapness means their prices can be very volatile. But this potential choppiness means they can also be overlooked by the market. Here are two I think might thrive during the eventual economic recovery.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…A cheap UK retail shareA return to economic normality automatically feeds through to improved shopping budgets and consumer confidence. It’s a mix that will likely see demand for N Brown Group’s (LSE: BWNG) products stride higher. This penny stock services the plus-size and older fashion segments through its JD Williams, Jacamo and Simply Be brands.Research from Scottish Friendly and the Centre for Economics and Business Research suggests that shopper spending could soar sooner rather than later. It estimates that Britons have saved almost £200bn since Covid-19 lockdowns began. And the report reckons they plan to splurge a quarter of this amount as restrictions unravel during the rest of 2021.I also think N Brown’s huge investment in e-commerce in recent years should drive profits over the next few years as online shopping adoption rates click through the gears. Bear in mind though, that this UK clothing share operates in a highly competitive environment. And this threatens to keep its wafer-thin margins under persistent pressure.This penny stock’s shares trade at 70p today. This leaves N Brown trading on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of just 9 times, making it an attractive value pick in my book. Remember though, that City predictions of a 2% earnings rise this fiscal year could miss the mark if the economic recovery splutters or if the company gets its product wrong.Another cheap penny stockPendragon (LSE: PDG) is another penny stock I think could perform strongly during the new bull market. As I say, spending habits tend to bounce strongly during the early stages of economic recoveries. And demand for automobiles tends to be particularly electrifying during such periods. This UK share trades at 18p each.Things might not be all sunny for Pendragon in the medium term though, as environmental legislation concerning petrol and diesel engines might damage demand for its cars. Sales of its petrol, diesel and hybrid motors could suffer if customers worry about declines in the residual value of these big-ticket items. Other issues like rising car taxes on heavily-polluting vehicles, along with falling car use on rising awareness of green issues might also seriously damage revenues.City analysts think Pendragon’s annual earnings will rebound more than 800% in 2021. And at current prices, it means that this penny stock trades on a P/E ratio of just 11 times. A reading around or below 10 times suggests that a share could be undervalued by the market.

Dear friends, let us continue to be comforted that we find all of this and more in the Easter story.The day of Easter dawned on a world unaware of the transforming event of Christ’s Resurrection. It appeared that the powers that had conspired against Jesus had won the day. His friends and followers were faced with the trauma of the unjust and violent death of their Lord Jesus, in whom they had placed all their faith, hope and love. They were in the grip of confusion over what those events meant, deep guilt and shame over their own failure to stand with him when he most needed them, and fear of the future, both at the hands of the authorities, and the existential dilemma that would have come with the realisation that their Messiah had been defeated, causing them to go into hiding, or share their thoughts and feelings only with those of their own trusted circle.What began to change them and the whole world was that their Jesus, the risen Lord, came to them and revealed himself to them. In the Gospel of Luke we read the account of the two disciples on the road to Emmaus, trying in intense conversation to make sense out of what had transpired, when “Jesus himself drew near and walked with them”. Nothing could stop Jesus coming alongside and falling into step with them, sharing their journey and their concerns and opening their eyes and hearts until they recognised their Lord. In different situations and to different individuals the risen Jesus appeared and had fellowship with them, even to Simon Peter, the one weighed down by his own personal guilt of having betrayed his Saviour. And all those to whom he revealed himself saw him and proclaimed that “the Lord is risen indeed”.It is in this context that we rediscover the Good News of the Gospel, which we share as Christians across the globe: that Jesus makes himself known to us in our own lives, and that no power or principality or circumstance can “separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord” from which we draw all of our hope.And because he first loved us, we take courage to share this love, to be his witnesses and disciples. It becomes our call to come alongside our brothers and sisters, be they of our own faith or not, to be Christ to them in solidarity with their concerns and needs, by sharing our confidence in the risen Lord through word and deed.May the joy of the living Christ be yours as you celebrate Easter wherever he comes to meet you.The Most Reverend and Right Honourable Justin Welby Archbishop of Canterbury Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Featured Events This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Rector Collierville, TN Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Rector Washington, DC Press Release Service Curate Diocese of Nebraska New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Director of Music Morristown, NJ Tags Course Director Jerusalem, Israel The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC
Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. By Gavin Naylor, University of FloridaSharks elicit outsized fear, even though the risk of a shark bite is infinitesimally small. As a marine biologist and director of the Florida Program for Shark Research, I oversee the International Shark Attack File – a global record of reported shark bites that has been maintained continuously since 1958.We are careful to emphasize how rare shark bites are: You are 30 times more likely to be struck by lightning than be bitten by a shark. You are more likely to die while taking a selfie, or be bitten by a New Yorker. In anticipation of the anxiety that’s typically generated by the Discovery Channel’s Shark Week programming, here are a few things about sharks that are often overlooked.A big, diverse familyNot all sharks are the same. Only a dozen or so of the roughly 520 shark species pose any risk to people. Even the three species that account for almost all shark bite fatalities – the white shark (Carcharodon carcharias), tiger shark (Galeocerdo cuvier) and bull shark (Carcharhinus leucas) – are behaviorally and evolutionarily very different from one another.The tiger shark and bull shark are genetically as different from each other as a dog is from a rabbit. And both of these species are about as different from a white shark as a dog is from a kangaroo. The evolutionary lineages leading to the two groups split 170 million years ago, during the age of dinosaurs and before the origin of birds, and 110 million years before the origin of primates.White, tiger and bull sharks are distinct species that diverged genetically tens of millions of years ago.Gavin Naylor, CC BY-NDYet many people assume all sharks are alike and equally likely to bite humans. Consider the term “shark attack,” which is scientifically equivalent to “mammal attack.” Nobody would equate dog bites with hamster bites, but this is exactly what we do when it comes to sharks.So, when a reporter calls me about a fatality caused by a white shark off Cape Cod and asks my advice for beachgoers in North Carolina, it’s essentially like asking, “A man was killed by a dog on Cape Cod. What precautions should people take when dealing with kangaroos in North Carolina?”Know your speciesUnderstanding local species’ behavior and life habits is one of the best ways to stay safe. For example, almost all shark bites that occur off Cape Cod are by white sharks, which are a large, primarily cold-water species that spend most of their time in isolation feeding on fishes. But they also aggregate near seal colonies that provide a reliable food source at certain times of the year.Shark bites in the Carolinas are by warm-water species like bull sharks, tiger sharks and blacktips (Carcharhinus limbatus). Each species is associated with particular habitats and dietary preferences.Blacktips, which we suspect are responsible for most relatively minor bites on humans in the southeastern United States, feed on schooling bait fishes like menhaden. In contrast, bull sharks are equally at home in fresh water and salt water, and are often found near estuaries. Their bites are more severe than those of blacktips, as they are larger, more powerful, bolder and more tenacious. Several fatalities have been ascribed to bull sharks.Tiger sharks are also large, and are responsible for a significant fraction of fatalities, particularly off the coast of volcanic islands like Hawaii and Reunion. They are tropical animals that often venture into shallow water frequented by swimmers and surfers.Sharks are important predators that play critical roles in ocean food chains.Humans are not targetsSharks do not “hunt” humans. Data from the International Shark Attack File compiled over the past 60 years show a tight association between shark bites and the number of people in the water. In other words, shark bites are a simple function of the probability of encountering a shark.This underscores the fact that shark bites are almost always cases of mistaken identity. If sharks actively hunted people, there would be many more bites, since humans make very easy targets when they swim in sharks’ natural habitats.Local conditions can also affect the risk of an attack. Encounters are more likely when sharks venture closer to shore, into areas where people are swimming. They may do this because they are following bait fishes or seals upon which they prey.This means we can use environmental variables such as temperature, tide or weather conditions to better predict movement of bait fish toward the shoreline, which in turn will predict the presence of sharks. Over the next few years, the Florida Program for Shark Research will work with colleagues at other universities to monitor onshore and offshore movements of tagged sharks and their association with environmental variables so that we can improve our understanding of what conditions bring sharks close to shore.More to knowThere still is much to learn about sharks, especially the 500 or so species that have never been implicated in a bite on humans. One example is the tiny deep sea pocket shark, which has a strange pouch behind its pectoral fins.Only two specimens of this type of shark have ever been caught – one off the coast of Chile 30 years ago, and another more recently in the Gulf of Mexico. We’re not sure about the function of the pouch, but suspect it stores luminous fluid that is released to distract would-be predators – much as its close relative, the tail light shark, releases luminous fluid from a gland on its underside near its vent.The goblin shark, found mainly off Asia, can project its jaw forward to pull prey into its mouth.Sharks range in form from the bizarre goblin shark (Mitsukurina owstoni), most commonly encountered in Japan, to the gentle filter-feeding whale shark (Rhincodon typus). Although whale sharks are the largest fishes in the world, we have yet to locate their nursery grounds, which are likely teeming with thousands of foot-long pups. Some deepwater sharks are primarily known from submersibles, such as the giant sixgill shark, which feeds mainly on carrion but probably also preys on other animals in the deep sea.Sharks seem familiar to almost all of us, but we know precious little about them. Our current understanding of their biology barely scratches the surface. The little we do know suggests they are profoundly different from other vertebrate animals. They’ve had 400 million years of independent evolution to adapt to their environments, and it’s reasonable to expect they may be hiding more than a few tricks up their gills.Gavin Naylor is the Director of the Florida Program for Shark Research at the University of Florida.

Brooklyn tenants and homeowners rallied on April 9 across the street from a high-rise luxury apartment building owned by the real estate development company Hudson Management.In the photo, anti-gentrification organizer Alicia Boyd, of the Movement to Protect the People, urged the community to stop more luxury development so this affordable community can be preserved. “Do not compromise with politicians who allow tax cuts for these developers,” she said. Some months ago Boyd and others were arrested for blocking cement trucks making a delivery here.The new building is designed to provide 254 luxury apartments in what is now a working-class community of mostly people of color. In order to obtain valuable tax breaks from the city, Hudson must set aside 51 apartments that are supposed to be “affordable” for working people. This means it is allowed to call its small studio apartments built for one person affordable, even though the minimum rent will be $1,850 a month. That number is based on the astronomically high “market rate” in New York City.Some demonstrators say local elected politicians are in the pocket of the developers, while the developers claim they are helping provide affordable housing. They receive tax breaks without doing anything to address the growing housing crisis for the working class, which involves increasing homelessness, evictions and racial discrimination.The protest was called by a number of tenant, civil rights and immigrant organizations to address the tax break given developers, called the 421a tax abatement program. This tax break is a bonus to rich developers, as it means a freeze on real estate taxes. This four-decade state program is up for renewal in June.The Crown Heights Tenant Union explains that this tax break costs the city $1 billion annually, without adding any real affordable housing. The $1 billion could annually fund 100,000 rent-subsidy vouchers worth $10,000, which would help Brooklyn’s large working class. The demonstrators shown here shouted “421a has got to go!” as they moved from the sidewalk to occupy Flatbush Avenue. Forced by police back to the sidewalk, they grew even more united and determined, chanting, “Housing is a right — fight, fight, fight!”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
