first_imgSimply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. See all posts by Nadia Yaqub Greatland Gold (LSE: GGP) shares were in high demand in 2020. But over the past month, the stock has fallen 27%. Does this mean it’s a buying opportunity for me?Perhaps. But first let’s be clear about a few things. The share price may be down, but it remains a popular buy. Hargreaves Lansdown investors are still buying Greatland Gold shares. The stock is still within the top 20 of the most purchased shares on the platform.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…Yet I should mention that Greatland Gold shares are a risky investment as it’s still a small loss-making miner. Let’s be frank, mining for gold is a costly business and it’s not the kind of share I’d have considered when I had less investing experience.An overview of Greatland GoldThe AIM-listed company mines for gold and copper in Australia. It currently has six projects, four are in Western Australia and two in Tasmania.The Paterson project, which is one of the six, includes two joint ventures including Havieron and Juri. Greatland Gold signed a farm-in agreement with larger peer Newcrest to explore the Havieron deposit in March 2019, and has delivered consistent positive results.Juri is another joint venture with Newcrest to explore the Black Hills and Paterson Range East sites. Within the Paterson project, Greatland Gold owns two 100% licenses, Scallywag and Rudall.Why did Greatland Gold shares rally in 2020?I think there are a few reasons why the shares soared in 2020. The global pandemic created a lot of uncertainty last year. This led to many investors buying gold as a safe-haven asset to store value and hedge against inflation. This gold rush also led to many snapping up small gold-mining company shares.Alongside the 2020 ‘gold rush’, the company released a series of successful drilling results at its Havieron deposit. While it’s still early days, this site demonstrates the potential for a large, underground mining operation.The company has partnered with Newcrest to share the risks and rewards. And the success of Havieron led Greatland to sign additional agreements with Newcrest in November 2020. The latter offered Greatland a $50m loan in addition to the existing funding commitments. The debt facility will be used for drilling costs up to the completion of a feasibility study.These events, along with the momentum for the precious metal, resulted in Greatland Gold shares soaring to new heights in 2020.Why did the stock fall recently?But Greatland shares have fallen more recently on the back of drilling news. On January 20, the company announced the results of its initial drill results at Scallywag. These weren’t positive and hence the significant fall in the share price.I think it should be highlighted that not every drilling hole dug will be successful. This is why Greatland explores many sites and learns from the unsuccessful ones. I reckon after the success of Havieron, investors expected the positive results to continue. The share price fall is a reality check that Greatland Gold shares are not for the faint-hearted!Would I buy Greatland Gold shares?Greatland Gold shares are still a risky prospect as it’s currently loss-making, but I think there’s so much potential. It has the Havieron deposit even if Scallywag initially showed no signs of the precious metal. I’d still buy Greatland Gold shares in my diversified portfolio as a long-term investor.

first_imgJune 5 — Four days ago, the White House called on the U.S. military to deploy in U.S. cities to “dominate” the streets. Over the next three days, two former chairs of the Joint Chiefs of Staff spoke out against this deployment. So did Trump’s own former and current secretaries of defense, the latter knowing it would likely get him fired.Reacting to Trump’s threat, at least three organizations of anti-war military veterans called on service members from the U.S. Armed Forces or the National Guard to refuse to deploy against demonstrators opposing racism.While the president stopped broadcasting his threats, and some National Guard and federal troops have been called back, they may still be used against the civilian population. The tumult within the military apparatus over Trump’s threat raises two key questions: Where does this opposition come from? What does the generals’ reluctance mean for the anti-racist movement?To answer the first: The generals and admirals fear that using military force against the African-American community and its allies could wreck whatever cohesion exists within the U.S. Armed Forces. The Pentagon has built a professional — that is, a nonconscript — military over the last 45 years since the debacle in Vietnam. The use of troops — who are 40 percent or more people of color — against the civilian population could destroy its morale and boomerang against the brass.The generals’ reluctance indicates the possibility for the movement to reach out to the rank-and-file soldiers. Weakening the morale of the U.S. Armed Forces means weakening the worldwide grip of U.S.-based monopolies and banks. This would be a step forward for the people of the U.S. and the world.Dissent from aboveSecretary of Defense Mark Esper, who was rumored to already be on his way out, openly contradicted Trump on June 4. “The option to use active duty forces in a law enforcement role should only be used as a matter of last resort,” he said, “and only in the most urgent and dire of situations. We are not in one of those situations now. I do not support invoking the Insurrection Act” of 1807. (CNN)Esper, normally a Trump toady, would speak out like that only if he already was under pressure from the military hierarchy to stop the use of U.S. troops in the cities. Retired top officers, who speak more freely on political questions than active officers, gave further proof of this. These included former JCS chairs Admiral Mike Muller and Gen. Martin Dempsey, as well as former Secretary of Defense James Mattis, all of whom ravaged Trump.No one should mistake these military officers’ motives. They have spent their lives serving the interests of U.S. militarism and imperialism. They have ordered troops into illegal wars and occupations against Yugoslavia, Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria and threatened Iran and Venezuela. This time they believe that Trump’s orders to deploy federal troops against anti-racist protesters threaten their military.Resistance from belowThe organization of antiwar veterans About Face: Veterans Against the War has circulated a petition aimed at National Guard members that reads: “We ask that you stand up for Black lives by standing down. We know the consequences you may face for disobeying orders. Many of us have faced them ourselves.” As of June 4, some 700 veterans had signed this call to refuse duty. ( For Peace, another such organization, circulated a statement calling on “all military leaders and personnel to refuse deployment. We, as veterans, know the terrible aftermath of participating in actions that are morally wrong against communities in other countries. Now is the time to refuse to participate in orders that are unjust.” ( to Resist reports in a June 4 article that it is already “currently assisting members of the National Guard who resisted Trump’s orders to violently attack people on the streets of Washington, D.C., peacefully and lawfully protesting racial injustice.“One Guardsman who is resisting Trump’s orders originally hoped to join medical missions assisting in natural disasters. Addressing the current situation he says, ‘I can’t do it. Even looking at my uniform is making me feel sick that I’m associated with this, especially after [a National Guard unit] shot that man who owned that barbecue shop’” in Louisville, Ky. ( demonstrators actNo one can predict for certain how soldiers under discipline will react to the president’s orders. That there is dissent at the top and that there is already resistance from individual rank-and-file service members is a sign that resistance is possible, even within a “professional,” nonconscript army.Consider the African revolutionary leader, Amilcar Cabral, when dealing with a similar challenge. Cabral was the head of the organization that directed the liberation war against Portuguese colonialism in Guinea-Bissau and Cape Verde.In 1963, despite his enormous tasks in building a guerrilla movement and governing parts of his country, Cabral took time to write an appeal to the Portuguese conscript soldiers and officers who were occupying Guinea-Bissau.His message, carefully explained, can be summarized as: (1) Those Portuguese troops who continue to fight Africans in the interest of the imperialist corporations can expect to never leave Africa alive. (2) Those who desert or resist will get the full support and protection of the liberation movement.It took another 11 years of fighting, but the war-weary Portuguese military finally revolted against Portugal’s fascist government, overthrowing it and ending the wars against the African colonies of Angola, Mozambique and Guinea-Bissau.While it is hard to predict what will happen next in the U.S., the events of the past weeks show that nothing is impossible. A movement that encourages and defends soldiers who resist and appeals to the troops, even as it challenges them, can make a difference.Catalinotto is author of “Turn the Guns Around: Mutinies, Soldier Revolts and Revolutions,” World View Forum, 2017. The book’s appendix contains an English translation of Cabral’s 1963 appeal to Portuguese troops.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_img Share Save Jacob Lew U.S. Department of Treasury U.S. Economy Wage Growth 2015-02-09 Brian Honea Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News  Print This Post The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported last week that average hourly earnings increased by 12 cents from December to January ($24.63 to $24.75), but U.S. Department of Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew said on Monday more wage growth is needed.Lew told CNBC on Monday that even though the economy has experienced sustainable job growth – a higher-than-expected 257,000 jobs were added in January and a monthly average of 336,000 jobs created for the last three months, according to BLS – better wage growth is needed for the nation’s economy to return to normal.”Over the last year, we’ve seen average wages going up, a little over 2 percent,” Lew said in the interview. “We need more wage growth than that for people to really feel it, but it’s something to be that’s starting to be something that’s a trend in the right direction. I think we’ve got to do everything we can to help drive that trend forward.”According to analysts, such wage growth may be on the horizon for the coming year. The 12-cent increase reported by BLS correlates with the findings of Fannie Mae’s January National Housing Survey released on Monday, which indicated that 29 percent of Americans said their household income is “significantly higher” than a year ago and that 48 percent surveyed expect to see their finances improve in the coming year.”A 0.5 percent jump in average hourly earnings was a welcome signal to American workers that recent months of robust hiring may finally lead to a much needed rising trend in wage gains,” Fannie Mae chief economist Doug Duncan said. “Together, our survey results and (the BLS) jobs report strengthens our expectation that stronger hiring and firming income growth will be the primary catalysts for a faster pace of housing recovery in 2015.”Analysts agree that higher wage growth is necessary for the nation’s economy – and hence the housing market – to fully recover from the bust of 2008, due to the fact that wage growth is needed to keep up with rising home prices.”Overall, affordability for buyers in most markets will be well maintained in the context of strong job and income growth,” CoreLogic chief economist Frank Nothaft said late January.The final January gauge of the University of Michigan/Thomson Reuters consumer sentiment index turned in its highest reading in 11 years (98.1) largely due to an increase in personal finances – four out of 10 surveyed cited finance gains as the reason for the increased level of confidence, particularly among households with an annual income of $75,000 or less. While that survey estimated an annualized growth rate in hourly earnings of only 1.9 percent, Friday’s 12-cent gain represented an annualized growth rate ahead of that pace at 2.2 percent.”Consumers have now turned to wages rather than jobs as the primary characteristic they used to judge the performance of the economy,” Richard Curtin, chief economist for Surveys of Consumers.”It is time to say that we’ve turned a corner and we’re now in an economy that’s growing,” Lew said. “It has sustainable growth. It’s growth that showing up not just in businesses but in jobs and we’re now seeing wages go up a bit. I think this is a trend that needs to continue. We need to make sure that we do what we can to continue the growth. I think we’re getting some benefit now from lower oil prices in terms of the economy getting a boost on top of that, so I’m feeling pretty confident that we’re looking at a good period ahead.” About Author: Brian Honea Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Tagged with: Jacob Lew U.S. Department of Treasury U.S. Economy Wage Growth The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media.

He has written many articles which are also available on records”, Narendra Singh, the Sessions Judge, noted in the bail order.”…in consideration of the undergone period in jail by the accused and his academic records, inter alia, the case is fit and proper to grant bail to the accused”, the order stated.The Court, observing that the co-accused has already been granted bail and that Usmani was granted bail in two other cases, said: “Keeping the accused further in jail will definitely serve no purpose at all”.The FIRs registered by Aligarh police mentioned offences under Sections 153A(promotion of communal disharmony), 147(unlawful assembly), 188(disobedience of directions of civil servant), 353(assault against public servant) of Indian Penal Code and 67(publication of obscene materials online) of Information Technology Act.Usmani was asked to furnish a personal bond of Rs 50,000 for the bail. He has been asked not to tamper with evidence and be present for trial as and when needed.While the court order was issued on August 28, Usmani was released on September 1. “The delay was because the identification process was taking time,” Ale Nabi, Usmani’s lawyer, told The Indian Express. “It was a procedural delay. The most important part is that he has been granted bail in all cases filed in Civil Lines Police Station. The trial is yet to begin.”The FIRs were registered over the protests led by students of Aligarh Muslim University on December 15, 2019.In February, the Allahabad High Court directed UP Government to take departmental action against police officers who indulged in violence against AMU students during the protests, and ordered compensation to injured students.Click here to download orderRead OrderSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
