first_imgForget gold and Bitcoin. I’d buy these 2 UK shares today to make a million “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Tom Rodgers | Tuesday, 17th November, 2020 | More on: GSK RMV Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. When I think about the best UK shares to make a million with, the same two pop up every time.With a stock market recovery on the cards, now could be the perfect time to buy a diversified selection of the best UK shares at attractive valuations. And they could offer better returns than gold or Bitcoin in the long run. 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…As we head deeper into winter 2020 I’m looking at two of the best UK shares. Each appears to offer high profits, growing sales and attractive entry points following price falls in 2020. I think with a combination of capital gains and dividends they could supercharge my returns and help me to make a million. Make a million-aireRightmove (LSE:RMV) should be towards the top of anyone’s best buy list, in my opinion. The FTSE 100 shares have regained nearly everything they lost in the March 2020 stock market crash. But they are still 10% cheaper than six months ago after a small dip. So I think now is a decent entry point into the FTSE 100 housebuying comparison website.Yes, Rightmove’s price-to-earnings ratio appears rather high at 32 times earnings.But P/E ratios aren’t a perfect measurement of value. And it’s for one good reason. This metric doesn’t take into account growth! So fast-growing companies will have a higher P/E ratio than slower growing rivals. Rightmove is expected to grow its earnings per share by 46% next year. That’s a lot, and an investment now could help me make a million in my Stocks and Shares ISA.Rightmove is also way ahead of its competition. In fact, it retains a crushing 88% of market share among people researching homes to buy. While it’s not a total monopoly, it’s not far off. This would appear to offer Rightmove shares a good margin of safety.And while buying and selling activity fell away during lockdown, the release of restrictions could see pent-up demand explode. I see a strong long-term outlook here, which means investors could generate impressive returns from buying and holding.Pharma karmaThe second share I’d look at to make a million is GlaxoSmithKline (LSE:GSK). The FTSE 100 pharmaceutical giant’s shares have crashed by 15% across 2020. To me that seems like a sound entry point to buy and possibly make big gains long term.That’s because at today’s prices GSK shares offer a 5.7% yield. This is the largest dividend yield on the FTSE 100 from the shares that I consider to have a wide economic moat. Moats, by the way are a way of describing a company’s ability to fend off its competitors. It’s Warren Buffett’s favourite metric for choosing the best shares to buy and hold long term. Buffett’s current net worth means he can make a million quid in less than an hour, by one calculation. We might have to wait a little longer, but still. Pharmaceutical companies tend to have wide economic moats because the competition is not allowed to sell the same product, even if they wanted to. GSK, for example, puts patent protection and trademarks on its drugs to stop this from happening. And the higher a dividend yield, the more likely I am able to compound my wealth year after year to make serious gains.  Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

first_imgWednesday Oct 20, 2010 Benoit Baby runs into a brick wall named Mikaele Tuugahala It was an all French affair in Pool two of the Heineken Cup on Saturday as Racing Metro picked up their first win of the campaign by beating Clermont Auvergne 16-9. The only try of the match went to Sireli Bobo, but the clip featured here comes from another Pacific Islander. We all know the penchant for big hits that stems from that part of the world, and while there have been unfortunately a few that have been misdirected of late, there was nothing wrong with this punishing hit from Racing Metro prop Mikaele Tuugahala. Benoit Baby was the unlucky recipient as he picked the wrong guy to run into. The fullback was brought to a halt instantly by the veteran from Wallis and Futuna, who is actually the cousin of Toulons Jocelino Suta . Possibly the most impressive thing is that despite running into and being smashed by a far bigger man, Baby got up after a few minutes and continued on. It’s actually not the first time we’ve seen Baby hit hard, as two years ago (to the day!) we posted a clip of him being nailed by Jean-Philippe Viard of Montauban. Morgan Parra picked up a late penalty for Clermont which gave them a valuable losing bonus point as the result means that both sides are now sitting with one from two so far.

first_imgWednesday Nov 19, 2014 The Five Nominations for the IRPA Try of the Year 2014 It’s coming to the end of the year so the Player of the Year 2014 nominees were announced recently, and today the International Rugby Players’ Association (IRPA) Try of the Year 2014 shortlist of five has been revealed with this great video. The five contenders are South Africa’s Francois Hougaard and Cornal Hendricks, Welshman Jamie Roberts, Canada’s IRB Women’s Player of the Year 2014 Magali Harvey and England’s Jonny May.They are all worthy candidates, and with just five to choose, there are sure to be a whole lot of tries that weren’t able to make the list. It’s strange, for example, to not see an All Black entry, especially with the likes of Julian Savea scoring some stunning tries in recent times.Interestingly, a few years back they chose fifteen candidates, and one year it was just four.That said, they’ve chosen to include a women’s rugby candidate too, which is great to see and it’s fair to say that it’s chosen entirely on merit, as it was indeed a wonderful try.The five tries were selected by the IRPA Try of Year panel of former players in Samoa’s Seilala Mapusua, All Black Jeff Wilson, Ireland’s Alan Quinlan and Dan Parks of Scotland.The public are able to vote via social media, with the results of which being taken into account when the selection panel make their final decision come the end of the year.Previous winners:2013 – Beauden Barrett (New Zealand)2012 – Bryan Habana (South Africa) – South Africa v New Zealand2011 – Radike Samo (Australia) – Australia v New Zealand2010 – Chris Ashton (England) – England v Australia2009 – Jaque Fourie (South Africa) – South Africa v British & Irish Lions2008 – Brian O’Driscoll (Ireland) – Australia v IrelandWhich try do you think should be chosen as Try of the Year 2014?ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

first_imgBrooklyn protest, Jan. 7.Brooklyn, N.Y. — An emergency demonstration in Brooklyn’s Clinton Hill neighborhood on Jan. 7 drew several dozen protesters supporting tenants of a four-story apartment building. Despite below-freezing temperatures for over a week, the residents have been denied any heat for more than 20 days.“No heat, no rent!’ yelled the demonstrators. Tenants said their landlord, Stuart Venner, will not even answer phone calls and that they are planning to take him to housing court, along with exposing him with protests. Passing neighbors indicated their support of those suffering this unhealthy cruelty.One placard held by a protester read, “Stuart Venner sleeps warmly while his tenants are frozen!” Supporters included activists with the Crown Heights Tenants Union and FUREE (Families United for Racial and Economic Equality).Heat denial is not limited to wealthy landlords and developers. Headlines have aroused attention to thousands of other New York City families who have been denied needed heat and hot water. Since the frigid cold arrived with the new year, over 30 developments within the New York City Public Housing Authority now lack heat and hot water!This appears to be a racist situation, as most NYCHA tenants are people of color. What does this say of the city government’s responsibility to the more than 400,000 people who live in NYCHA housing?  And what is this government doing — not doing — for the over 70,000 homeless people here?Housing, heat and water should be among the fundamental human rights guaranteed to all. Instead, in New York and other cities around the United States, capitalism consigns the poorest and most oppressed to the direst of life-threatening conditions.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Required fields are marked * Education First Generation Pasadena City College Student Named Jack Kent Cooke Scholar By Gilbert Rivera, Publications Supervisor Published on Wednesday, May 6, 2015 | 12:36 pm 4 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Ryan Liu, a Pasadena City College summa cum laude student who will be delivering the valedictory address at this Friday’s commencement ceremony, has been named the recipient of the prestigious Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship.A political science major and first?generation college student, Liu is one of 90 nationwide scholars selected this year to receive the award. The scholarship totals up to $40,000 annually and is intended to cover a significant share of the student’s educational expenses – including tuition, living expenses, books, and required fees – for the final two to three years necessary to achieve a bachelor’s degree.“The scholarship will give me the opportunity to continue my education without worrying about the costs,” said Liu, who will be graduating from PCC with a 4.0 GPA and an associate degree in social and behavioral sciences. “It opens up a lot of doors. I can now choose a school without having to burden my family.”Although still undecided on where to transfer, Liu has narrowed his decision to a pair of elite West?Coast institutions: UC Berkeley and UCLA.“All of this wouldn’t have been possible without PCC,” said Liu, whose goal beyond academia is to become an attorney and/or a civic servant. “PCC opened the door and gave me the opportunity to have an education. I really embraced the opportunity I had here.”While a Lancer, Liu served on the Associated Students Board as an elected school official. He was also involved in numerous campus organizations, including the Alpha Gamma Sigma Honor Society and the Honors Scholar Program. Off campus, he is an assistant high school speech and debate coach, and helps manage an e?Commerce business he co? founded.“This was a well?deserved honor for Ryan,” said David LeClaire, assistant director of the PCC Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid. “The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation scholarship is clearly the most prestigious and competitive scholarship at the community college level.“Federal aid and most scholarships won’t cover a majority of a student’s higher?education costs. This type of scholarship will bridge that gap,” he added.Selection of the annual Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Undergraduate Transfer scholars is achieved through a rigorous process that involves a panel of distinguished university faculty and admissions professionals. The criteria includes: achievement and academic ability, financial need, persistence, leadership, and a desire to help others.Alumna Le Aye received the Jack Kent Cooke scholarship in 2007, the last time a PCC student won the award.PCC’s 90th commencement ceremony will be held on Friday, May 8 at 7:00 p.m. in the college’s Jackie Robinson Stadium. More than 1,800 students will be receiving degrees and certificates. For more information, visit www.pasadena.edu.

first_imgLocal NewsBusiness Previous articleCaribou Biosciences Appoints Jason O’Byrne as Chief Financial OfficerNext articleCodefresh Taps Dan Garfield as Chief Open Source Officer, Strengthening Commitment to Open Source Digital AIM Web Support TAGS  Facebook BlueConic Helps Organizations Continue to Build First-Party Data Assets in the Wake of Third-Party Cookie Deprecation WhatsApp BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 9, 2021– BlueConic, the world’s leading pure-play customer data platform (CDP), today announced new functionality that enables customers to continue building legitimate first-party data assets amid rising third-party cookie and privacy-related data restrictions. Google and Apple are pushing forward with plans to eliminate third-party cookies to crack down on widely used advertising technologies that collect, share, and sell customer data with little regulation and without consumers’ knowledge or consent. While this broad-strokes approach to fixing the problem is rightly rooted in bringing more transparency, choice, and control to consumers, it also inadvertently jeopardizes legitimate first-party data collection and the decade’s worth of progress companies have made toward recognizing visitors on the web and providing them with more relevant, personalized cross-channel experiences. With this new functionality, BlueConic is giving companies the ability to centrally manage first-party server-side cookies to continue to build their first-party data assets and untether their marketing tactics from technologies that rely on third-party cookies. Collecting consented, first-party data in unified profiles helps companies power personalization tactics (e.g., relevant product recommendations, personalized offers and reminders etc.) on web channels – whether or not an individual identifies themselves. Similar to BlueConic’s end-to-end consent management capabilities, it will help customers navigate the complexity of data management as privacy regulations change. Leveraging a centralized, easy-to-use console, BlueConic customers will be able to manage the implementation of first-party cookies across all of their web channels, without putting the onus on marketers or IT teams to coordinate multiple domains, manage various databases for each domain, or manage certificate renewals in their DNS. As a result, companies can continue capturing on-site data to enrich the unified customer profiles stored within their BlueConic database with confidence and utility. For instance, customers can: Interact with consumers using ad blockers: An estimated 30% of all internet users now use ad blockers, which can be problematic for businesses trying to reach their audiences. Since these users are represented by persistent profiles in BlueConic, customers can continue to grow their audience.Reduce false unique visitor counts: By eliminating first-party cookie expiration caps, business users can continue to recognize anonymous website visitors, track their behaviors over time, and deliver relevant, valuable experiences that are mutually beneficial to the company and the customer.Improve identity management: With this new functionality, BlueConic ensures that companies, including multi-brand companies, can continue to build unified profiles using identity management capabilities from the time a customer is anonymous to the time they are known. “BlueConic is focused on helping customers drive transformational growth through the collection and use of consented first-party data. Unfortunately, browser technology changes, which rightly prioritize consumer privacy over third-party tracking, have the potential to disrupt legitimate first-party data collection,” explains Bart Heilbron, CEO and co-founder of BlueConic. “This new functionality ensures our customers can continue to make first-party data the cornerstone of their customer-centric strategies as privacy policies proliferate.” About BlueConic BlueConic, the leading pure-play customer data platform, liberates companies’ first-party data from disparate systems and makes it accessible wherever and whenever it is required to transform customer relationships and drive business growth. Over 300 companies worldwide, including Hearst Newspapers, Heineken, ING, T-Mobile, UEFA, and VF Corp, use BlueConic to unify data into persistent, individual-profiles, and then activate it across customer touchpoints and systems in support of a wide range of growth-focused initiatives, including customer lifecycle orchestration, modeling and analytics, digital products and experiences, audience-based monetization, and more.
