2 FTSE 100 shares I’d buy this June Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Click here to get access to our presentation, and learn how to get the name of this ‘double agent’! Royston Wild | Sunday, 30th May, 2021 | More on: BA WPP Market appetite for UK shares has remained flattish in recent weeks. Take the FTSE 100 as an example of this. Sure, Britain’s blue-chip index touched 15-month peaks around 7,130 points during early May. But it’s settled lower as fears over possible monetary tightening by central banks amid soaring inflation have risen.It’s possible that UK share markets could fall again given the fragile state of investor confidence. But I for one won’t stop buying British stocks for my Stocks and Shares ISA. There are still many Footsie shares I think will thrive in the near term and beyond.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…Cheap as chipsI believe that BAE Systems (LSE: BA) is a blue-chip share that looks too cheap to miss. Not only does the UK defence share trade on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of just 12 times. The business carries a market-beating 4.8% dividend yield as well.Investing in companies that build defence systems isn’t without risk, of course. For BAE Systems, the ever-present threat that trade with Saudi Arabia will be banned is one that would put a huge hole in its revenues column. Still, the fact that demand for weapons is constant means that companies like this FTSE 100 firm have strong earnings visibility.Not even the biggest economic shock for decades has been enough to derail global arms spending. Data from the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute showed 2020 defence expenditure rose 2.6% to just below $2trn. And Deloitte expects the total to rise 2.8% in 2021 despite the ongoing Covid-19 crisis and its huge economic cost. BAE Systems, with its diverse suite of market-leading systems and products, remains well placed to exploit this growth.Another FTSE 100 crackerI also think WPP (LSE: WPP) could be a very wise buy this June on news surrounding an advertising market recovery. The amount businesses spend on marketing is usually one of the fastest things to rebound when economic recoveries kick in. The pace at which the advertising agencies are bouncing back this time around continues to confound market commentators too.Trading figures from some of WPP’s major rivals continue to reveal the solid momentum ad agencies are enjoying. France’s Publicis Groupe, for example, last month reported organic growth of 2.8% in the first quarter, beating expectations. And Interpublic Group also kept its recent run of forecast beats going in April with organic sales growth of 1.9% in quarter one.There’s no guarantee that FTSE 100-quoted WPP will thrive as advertising spending bounces back. Competition is intense among the agencies and the number of companies bringing their marketing activities in-house is rising too. Still, I think WPP has the clout to remain a big player in this rebounding market. And I also like the steps it’s taking to accelerate its role in the rapidly-expanding digital advertising segment.

The programme is designed to encourage employers with fewer than 500 staff to set up a Payroll Giving scheme by offering a cash incentive of up to £500.Payroll Giving enables employees to give to charity straight from their gross salary and to get immediate tax relief of up to 40% on each donation. In addition the new grants programme will match the first £10 donated by each employee, every month, for a period of six months. The Institute of Fundraising will be running a series of one day workshops to help organisations make the most of payroll giving. ‘Making Local Business Your Business’ will demonstrate how the grants programme works and how to use Payroll Giving as the initiator for building relationships with local businesses.

The following is abridged from a class on Marxism given by WWP founder Sam Marcy in 1993 after the fall of the Soviet Union. For the full text, see tinyurl.com/y82jc2o4.Why do we need to go over Marxism? Why can’t we just assign comrades to read this and that and then go on to the business of the war in Nicaragua, or what’s going on in the imperialist attacks on the DPRK, or what’s happening with the Palestinians?We have to have a basic evaluation of what is going on. An examination of our ideological weapons.The bourgeoisie regard their system as eternal, not subject to fundamental change. This differs radically from Marxism, which teaches us that capitalism is a transitory social formation. Like feudalism and slavery, it will have to give way to a higher form of society.The bourgeoisie cannot give an objective assessment of the real trends in capitalist society. Everything they do is calculated to serve self-interest of the most venomous type, which goes along with imperialist brigandage all over the globe.Our purpose in reviewing Marxism is to prepare us for the storms and stresses of the next period.We don’t need a scholastic, pedantic recitation. We need a critical review, not from the viewpoint of revisionism and renunciation but from the viewpoint of reinforcing and strengthening the heritage that has been bequeathed to us by the great leaders of the past.In this short session we will look at the latest phase of capitalism, which Lenin called imperialism.Lenin’s five characteristics of imperialismThere are at least five characteristics of imperialism that Lenin thought important in characterizing this stage of capitalism. And they are still true some 77 years later.He first of all mentioned the concentration of production, of capital, the development of competition into monopoly. What is the interplay between monopoly and competition? One doesn’t replace the other. They both exist. How is it different today from Lenin’s period?The bourgeoisie is always discussing competition and monopoly. There are thousands of cases in the courts that deal with monopoly and competition from the point of view of their problems. On the one hand, they want to restrain monopoly, yet they also want to strengthen it.Lenin tells us about the merging of bank capital with industrial capital and the creation of finance capital.Then there is the export of capital which has become extremely important as distinguished from the export of commodities. The U.S. exports not just commodities but loans all over the world. Lenin also writes about the formation of international capitalist monopolies which share the world among themselves.But it’s not a stable agreement. They establish arbitrators and courts of arbitration to issue awards, but they don’t keep the agreements, basically because they are thieves and pirates. It’s utopian to expect them to have gentlemen’s agreements among themselves, especially when billions of dollars are at stake.Redivision of the worldAccording to Lenin, the world was already shared out among the great capitalist powers when he wrote “Imperialism” in 1916. The wars since have invalidated a lot of this. Some imperialist countries have become stronger and others weaker. Japan has become stronger. Britain, Holland, Belgium, and others have become weaker. What has taken their place, of course, is U.S. imperialism. It attempts to take over everything that is not nailed down.A fundamental feature of imperialism is also the fusion of the capitalist state with the banks and industry. The industrialists carry on a struggle to maintain some form of independence among themselves as against the finance capitalists, but this independence is overturned and giant financial and industrial corporations get fused. This doesn’t solve the contradiction, but brings it within a certain area of agreement.Henry Ford and finance capitalHenry Ford and his empire existed for a considerable period as a family unit. No banks, no insurance companies owned the Ford company. It all belonged to one family.He was so fearful that Wall Street, meaning the bankers, would take it over that he launched an anti-Semitic campaign. He subsidized two or three publications of an anti-Semitic character in order to chastise and expose Wall Street.What was the real problem? He didn’t want his industrial empire to succumb to finance capital. He wanted it to stay in the family.From the Leninist conception of imperialism, this meant that Ford, as an industrialist, was attempting to ward off the fusion of finance capital with his industrial empire. In the end he and his son capitulated. They made it a stockholding company where everybody could buy the stock. The Wall Street firms that sell and float stocks, that lend and borrow money, made it like any other corporation — General Motors, Chrysler, IBM and so on.It’s not possible to be an independent entity in the imperialist epoch. Least of all, you can’t keep the banks out unless you want to lose money. Ultimately, Ford capitulated to the financiers because he would have lost the competitive edge if he tried to stay independent.It’s important for us to understand the inner workings, the mechanism of the relationship between imperialist industry and imperialist finance — the fusion of the capitalist state with industry and financeFusion of finance capital and the stateThe capitalist state as we know it has three arms — the executive, the legislative and the judicial. The legislative is the most popular and has the power of the purse.The ruling class has always been fearful of a popularly elected body, especially after the passage of the Civil Rights Act.But if you hand the members of Congress the budget of the United States, you’ll pretty soon see that your congressperson may not know much.The ruling class has established a stratum of extra-governmental, extra-state personnel who make up an unofficial political arm of the capitalist state. They are called lobbyists. They are a power over and above the elected representatives.If you need an interpretation [of a bill], the lobbyist has it. If you ask which congressperson voted for what, they’ll tell you that, too. And furthermore, they work day and night and are omnipresent in Washington, in some of the most fashionable and richest houses.Lobbying has erected a governmental apparatus over and above the Congress that has grown stronger and stronger in the epoch of imperialism. It’s an extra-legal apparatus to circumvent the legislative process as outlined in the Constitution.For that reason, Leninists have always regarded suffrage and popular elections as merely a method of mobilizing the masses, of trying to educate the masses. But not really of accomplishing anything.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this read more
Since being arrested at the newspaper in the early hours of 28 December, Afandi has been held at the headquarters of the National Security Service (NSS) in Juba.His family has still not been allowed to talk to him and is very concerned for his physical condition. Treatment of detainees in South Sudan is such that his relatives fear that he may have been mistreated and beaten.Afandi has not been allowed access to a lawyer, he has not been taken before a judge and no charge has been brought against him to justify his detention, which is clearly arbitrary.An article he wrote in December criticized the ruling Sudan People’s Liberation Movement and the government’s passive response to the civil war that has been ravaging the country since December 2013.Al-Tabeer stopped publishing after Afandi’s arrest and its editor, Wazir Michael, announced that he was resigning in an attempt to appease the NSS. The newspaper, which has not resumed publishing, was launched to replace Michael’s previous newspaper, Al-Rai, which the authorities closed earlier last year.“Holding Joseph Afandi incommunicado is completely illegal under international law and South Sudan’s own laws,a nd violates the journalists rights to a fair trial,” said Clea Kahn-Sriber, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “If the government is unable to say what this journalist is charged with, he must be released at once.” Organisation Reporters Without Borders (RSF) welcomes Al-Tabeer reporter Joseph Afandi’s release on 19 February after two months of arbitrary detention by the National Security Service. At no point during his detention was Afandi allowed to speak to a lawyer or contact his family, and he was never told on what charge he was being held.********************************************************************Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls for the immediate and unconditional release of Joseph Afandi, a journalist with the Juba-based daily newspaper Al-Tabeer, who has been held without charge for more than six weeks. The situation in South Sudan has worsened dramatically since the start of the civil war. The authorities have banned any critical coverage of their actions or any interview with rebel groups, although a peace accord has now been signed.In August 2015, RSF criticized President Salva Kiir’s threats against the media and the impunity for violence and abuses against journalists. South Sudan is ranked 125th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Top of the News Community News Today, President Obama announced the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) will receive federal support as one of eleven clean energy projects, which are to be funded by the Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E). The program, called the Micro-scale Optimized Solar-cell Arrays with Integrated Concentration (MOSAIC), seeks to develop new solar technologies that are both cost-effective and high-performance. Rep. Judy Chu (CA-27), whose district includes Caltech, released the following statement:I am so proud that Caltech is once again being recognized as one of our country’s preeminent research institutions. Along with the other distinguished research institutions the President named today, Caltech is leading the way in making a long-term, sustainable difference in the energy field. The MOSAIC project will not only contribute to the economy in Southern California, it will make important strides towards a more sustainable energy policy.“Programs with bipartisan support like the Department of Energy’s ARPA-E are so important because it allows the government to fund and develop a much needed industry, like clean energy technology, when the private sector will not. By doing so, we can look beyond the horizon and foster a better future with new jobs, more exports, and greater energy independence.”The MOSAIC program’s award of $3,000,000 to Caltech was announced alongside the ten other recipients of grant money at the Clean Energy Summit by President Obama and Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz.

ABC NewsBy MAX GOLEMBO, ABC News(NEW YORK) — Several storms moving through the country are bringing tornadoes, heavy snow, freezing rain, flooding and hail.There are 31 states on alert Tuesday morning for a variety of dangerous weather stretching from California to Massachusetts.The same storm that hit the Midwest overnight with heavy snow and ice also produced at least one tornado north of Birmingham, Alabama, with major damage to homes and buildings.In the Midwest, up to 14 inches of snow fell in Iowa and Nebraska, shutting down interstates with numerous accidents and injuries reported.Chicago is seeing 1 to 4 inches of snow with more snow to come through the day and, locally, 8 inches of snow is possible when the storm moves out later on Tuesday.This same storm is moving into the Northeast now with snow and freezing rain and strong thunderstorms to the south.Throughout the day, this icy mix will continue in Pennsylvania and into New Jersey and parts of Maryland where a winter weather advisory has been issued Tuesday morning.Elsewhere, snow is expected to fly from upstate New York into New England.Snowfall totals will range 3 to 6 inches from the Hudson Valley to New England and, locally, 8 inches is expected in the higher elevation in New York, Massachusetts and Vermont.Two more storms are moving through the West Tuesday into Wednesday with copious amounts of rain and snow.Already, up to 18 inches of snow fell in Arizona in the last 24 hours and, in Nevada, I-15 was shut down near the California border.Snow even fell just outside of Los Angeles on I-5 in Grapevine and up to 3 inches accumulated.The current storm in the West will move east in the next 24 hours and could bring a wintry mix to the southern Appalachians and parts of Carolinas and the southern Mid-Atlantic by Wednesday night.Meanwhile, a new storm will hit the West Coast Tuesday night into Wednesday — the strongest of them all — with more than 7 feet of snow in the Sierra Nevada mountains in California and more than 8 inches of rain for coastal California.Mudslides and flooding are a major threat for the state of California by Thursday.
