However, she is likely to return to the octagon starting October.“Ritu plans to be a lot more active this year. She will be playing her first match in October this year and possibly another in November and December. That would set her up well if she continues to win, and she could be up for a world title shot in mid- or late- 2021, Sityodtong told ESPN.

But so far in 2020, Spirax-Sarco Engineering (LSE: SPX) shares have been on an incredible run, and have gained around 25% since the beginning of the year and about a 45% year-on-year return. While these figures are impressive, it may seem relatively low considering the share price increase of c.375% over the last five years. Additionally, as Spirax-Sarco Engineering is considered a defensive company with stable revenues that typically are not affected in an economic cycle downturn, I believe it may be one of the best ‘protection’ shares in the market in the case of a stock market crash.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 stable and high growth companySpirax-Sarco Engineering has enjoyed incredible growth, something that is more typical to high-growth tech stocks and startups. Indeed, it is not as popular as other FTSE 100 stocks and is less attractive in terms of innovation and vision (basically, Spirax-Sarco produces commercial steam systems, electric thermal solutions, pumps, and fluid path equipment). But at the same time, Spirax-Sarco’s growth was slightly different as its shares have been quietly blasting off to record-high territory and doing so without a lot of attention. That is a good sign and may indicate the future strength of a company.Ultimately, I believe Spirax-Sarco is a high-quality stock, with a stable revenue flow. It is normally not subject to seasonal fluctuations, nor economic downturns. In the first half-year of 2020, Spirax-Sarco’s revenue was down only 4% to £569.7m, while earnings per share increased by 2% to 104.2p. The decrease in revenue was largely driven by the Steam Specialties division, which was down by 9%, while the company’s other segments – Electric Thermal solutions and Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group – reported a revenue increase of 7% and 5% respectively. Net debt has decreased to £326m from £391m from the previous year, while the company has managed to increase its free cash flow from £165m to £189m.As a result of the above, Spirax-Sarco Engineering shares have performed very well despite the mini-crisis and the financial turmoil.What about dividends?Considering the exponential growth of Spirax-Sarco Engineering, a dividend yield of 5% would be a great bonus. Spirax-Sarco confirmed in the latest quarterly report a cash dividend of 33.5p per share, an increase of 5% from the previous year. In respect of 2019, Spirax-Sarco paid £57.5m to shareholders in dividends.The good news is that the company’s balance sheet and statements of cash flow may indicate it would continue paying dividends on an annual basis.Bottom lineSpirax-Sarco Engineering shares have seen a healthy price increase over the past five years. In fact, it is now trading at an all-time-high. And, even though I think a correction is likely to happen soon, it’s very difficult to see Spirax-Sarco’’s share price falls drastically in the near future. In my view, this manufacturing company is actually one of the best growth and dividend shares in the UK to buy right now. As such, I feel Spirax-Sarco Engineering presents a good long-term investment opportunity, whether we are heading for a stock market crash or for a new bull market. Image source: Getty Images.

SHARE U.S. Close to Proceeding With Mexico-Only Trade Deal Previous articleCommentary: The Part of Farming Non-Farmers Will Never UnderstandNext articleEPA Releases RFS Waiver Information Online Hoosier Ag Today SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News U.S. Close to Proceeding With Mexico-Only Trade Deal Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter By Hoosier Ag Today – Sep 23, 2018 White House Economic Trade Adviser Kevin Hassett says the U.S. is getting very close to having to move forward on its trade deal with Mexico without Canada. The deadline to publish the text of an agreement to update the North American Free Trade Agreement is October 1. As the deadline approaches, Hassett says the U.S. and Canada haven’t agreed to a deal. “We’re still talking to Canada,” Hassett says, “but we’re getting very, very close to the deadline where we’re going to have to move ahead with Mexico all by itself.”Hassett, who chairs the White House Council of Economic Advisers, says he’s surprised that Canada hasn’t signed an agreement yet. “I worry that politics is trumping common sense because there’s a very good deal in place that was designed by both Mexico and the U.S. to appeal to Canada,” he says. “They’re not signing on to the deal and it’s got everyone puzzled.” Chrystia Freeland, Canada’s Foreign Minister, left Washington last Thursday with no deal in place.Source: NAFB News Service read more
On 4 May 2017, the UN Human Rights Council will review the UK’s human rights record under the Universal Periodic Review. In September 2016, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) submitted a contribution underscoring press freedom concerns. This worrying trend has worsened in the months following this submission, through moves such as the adoption of the Investigatory Powers Act, resulting in the UK’s dropped ranking to 40th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.

The UK is ranked 38th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index, four places lower than its position in the 2015 Index.The British media have for years been concerned about protecting their sources from the police, who are accused of abusing their powers. The authorities get their powers from the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act (RIPA), adopted in 2000. It lets them monitor electronic communications without prior permission from a judge.The Bureau of Investigative Journalism (BIJ), a British NGO that does investigative reporting, has asked the European Court of Human Rights to review the RIPA, under which the British intelligence agency known as Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) is able to spy on journalists. The BIJ says interception of electronic communications threatens the ability of journalists to protect their sources and is therefore incompatible with European legislation, which recognizes the right of journalists to keep their sources confidential.The “Save Our Sources” campaign launched by the Press Gazette in 2012 (which has been supported by some 100 editors and 1,600 journalists) resulted in the adoption of amendments that helped to protect journalists’ sources. But media trust in the authorities has sunk to a new low because the government is promoting a new bill that would would increase surveillance powers and because there has been an increase in violations of freedom of information.This crisis of confidence is being fed by the attitude that seems to prevail among the British authorities, who tend to think that “journalists and reporters representing all types of news media represent a potential threat to security”, as an internal GCHQ memo published by the Guardian in 2015 put it.Examples of violations1- The Times reported that, in March 2014, Vodafone provided the police with the phone records of more than 1,700 employees of News UK – the company that publishes the Times, Sunday Times and Sun – including many journalists. As the police had requested the call records of just one journalist, the provision of all this data was due to “human error,” Vodafone said. The request was made under the RIPA in October 2013 by police officers working on “Operation Elveden,” an investigation into suspected illegal payments to public officials by journalists working for News International, renamed News UK after the News of the World phone hacking scandal. The police could have repaired the mistake by immediately deleting the data and alerting Vodafone and News UK, but they did not do so.2- In October 2015, the police used the UK’s Terrorism Act to seize the laptop of Secunder Kermani, a reporter for the respected BBC current affairs programme Newsnight who had been investigating jihadis of British origin for several months. The police obtained an order from a judge in order to take his computer and conduct a thorough analysis of his communications with a jihadi in Syria.3- There was an outcry in 2015 when it was revealed that the police had obtained the communications data of 82 journalists during the previous three years without reference to a judge, with the aim of identifying their sources within the police.4- David Miranda, the partner of former Guardian columnist Glenn Greenwald, was arrested at Heathrow Airport in 2013 while in possession of a hard drive with files linked to documents obtained by Edward Snowden. British judges ruled that his detention and the seizure of computer material was legal under the Terrorism Act. Miranda appealed against this decision and a UK appeal court acknowledged in 2016 that the Terrorism Act was incompatible with the European Convention on Human Rights.CURRENT THREATS: the bill designed to replace the RIPARSF is concerned about a bill drafted by British Prime Minister Theresa May when she was home secretary that would allow the police and intelligence agencies to intercept, gather and store the communications of tens of millions of people including journalists and their sources.Called the Investigatory Powers Bill (IPB) and intended to replace the RIPA, its provisions are all the more disturbing because the authorities would not be systematically required to give prior notice to journalists when planning to obtain their communications data or hack into their devices.It has already been approved by the House of Commons and is currently before the House of Lords. If it gets the upper house’s approval, any amendments would be then be debated by the entire parliament and it could take effect in January 2017. Referring to the IPB in March 2016, the UN special rapporteur on privacy, Joseph Cannataci, voiced alarm about the prospect of “disproportionate, privacy-intrusive measures such as bulk surveillance and bulk hacking.”RSF’S RECOMMENDATIONSThe right to privacy of all citizens including journalists and their sources is enshrined internationally in article 12 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and article 17 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. Article 19 of both documents also enshrines freedom of expression. As Frank La Rue, the UN special rapporteur on the promotion and protection of the right to freedom of opinion and expression, has said, protection of privacy is the corrolary of freedom of expression.The UN Human Rights Council recognized the right to online freedom of expression in a 2012 resolution and has reaffirmed it several times since then. It also said that the rights recognized in the physical world should be recognized online as well, regardless of frontiers.Tasked with enforcing the European Convention on Human Rights (to which the UK is party), the European Court of Human Rights has upheld the “protection of journalistic sources” as “one of the basic conditions for press freedom.” Without such protection, the court said, “sources may be deterred from assisting the press in informing the public on matters of public interest (…) the vital public-watchdog role of the press may be undermined, and the ability of the press to provide accurate and reliable information be adversely affected.”RSF therefore asks:• The British authorities -To respect the right to the protection of journalists’ sources, which is recognized by such bodies as the European Court of Human Rights. -To stop treating journalists as a “potential threat to security” and to regard them instead as guarantors of a free, open and pluralist society and as the only ones able to preserve security in the long term. -To guarantee the right to privacy of journalists and their sources both online and offline. -To reject the Investigatory Powers Bill in its current form. -To propose amendments guaranteeing specific protection for journalists and their sources. -To adopt legislation that protects the right to the confidentiality of journalists’ sources. • British Members of Parliament -To reject the Investigatory Powers Bill in its current form. -To propose amendments guaranteeing specific protection for journalists and their sources. -To adopt legislation that protects the right to the confidentiality of journalists’ sources.

NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say News MexicoAmericas Condemning abuses PredatorsViolence MexicoAmericas Condemning abuses PredatorsViolence Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on the new governor of Mexico’s eastern state of Veracruz to protect journalists and stop letting them fall victim to a deadly spiral of violence in which local newspaper editor and columnist Ricardo Monlui has just become the 20th journalist to be killed in the state since the start of 2000. RSF_en News News Help by sharing this information A Mexican journalist holds a picture of Ricardo Monlui during a protest in Cordoba, Veracruz state, Mexico, on March 19, 2017. IVAN SANCHEZ / AFP Reporter murdered in northwestern Mexico’s Sonora state Receive email alerts to go further Reports May 13, 2021 Find out more April 28, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Mexico March 21, 2017 Journalist killed in Mexico’s Veracruz state, 20th since 2000 Organisation Ricardo Monlui was gunned down as he was leaving a restaurant with his wife and children and was heading towards his car in Yanga, a small town near the city of Córdoba, on 19 March.Aged 57, he edited El Político, a Córdoba-based local newspaper, wrote a column called “Crisol” for the El Sol de Córdoba newspaper and wrote editorials for a third newspaper, the Diario de Xalapa. He also headed a Córdoba association of reporters and press photographers.He often wrote about conflicts between the Veracruz authorities and farmers and workers in the sugarcane industry, one of the region’s main economic activities.On the eve of his death, El Político published an article about the discovery of the body of an individual with a supposed press ID and a message linking the victim to Los Zetas, Veracruz’s biggest criminal cartel, which is on RSF’s list of press freedom predators.“We call on the Veracruz police and judicial authorities to quickly identify those responsible for Ricardo Monlui’s murder and to work on the assumption that it was probably linked to his work as a journalist,” said Emmanuel Colombié, the head of RSF’s Latin America bureau.“The Veracruz authorities must also provide Monlui’s family and colleagues with all the necessary protection. At the same time, Veracruz’s new governor must reveal his intentions and plans for stemming the flood of violence that has engulfed the state’s media for too many years.”Monlui had not reported receiving any recent threats and did not receive any special protection. His son Ricardo Monlui Ruíz was the target of a murder attempt in December 2010.He was the first journalist to be murdered in Veracruz since Miguel Ángel Yunes took over as the state’s new governor last December.In a report published on 2 February, entitled “Veracruz: journalists and the state of fear,” RSF examined the difficulties of working as journalist in this state, one of the most violent places in Latin America, and made a series of recommendations.One of the recommendations for the new governor was to “establish a clear, effective and transparent policy for ensuring that journalists are safe and free to practice their profession in the state of Veracruz; do this by setting specific goals and by reinforcing the entities responsible for guaranteeing freedom of expression.”Mexico is ranked 149th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index. 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies May 5, 2021 Find out more read more
