Many investors have been surprised by Warren Buffett’s apparent actions this year regarding gold stocks.Berkshire Hathaway, of which the Oracle of Omaha is chairman, bought around $500m worth of shares in gold miner Barrick Gold earlier this year. That’s despite Buffett having a long track record of avoiding investments connected to the precious metal.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…After gold’s mixed recent performance, do his apparent actions suggest there is scope to make strong capital growth from gold mining companies in the long run?Warren Buffett’s ‘purchase’ of a gold stockIt is difficult to know whether Warren Buffett was involved in the purchase of shares in Barrick Gold. He does not make all of Berkshire Hathaway’s investment decisions. Therefore, it seems to be more likely that one of the company’s portfolio managers was behind the deal. Indeed, this theory is made even more likely because the size of the transaction was small relative to the company’s other holdings. Buffett simply may not have been involved in the decision-making process.Moreover, since purchasing it, Berkshire Hathaway has sold around 40% of its holding in Barrick Gold. This suggests that it is unlikely to be a long-term change in Buffett’s investment strategy. It means he may not really be suddenly changing his stance towards the precious metal. After all, he has a long period of being downbeat about the outlook for gold.Buying gold stocks todayOf course, gold stocks could have appeal in some cases, even if Warren Buffett remains downbeat about the metal itself. The mixed performance of the gold price in recent months means that some gold miners are now trading at relatively low prices. Yes, the prospects for the world economy have improved lately, which could dent the gold price. But threats such as political instability in Europe and North America could mean that defensive assets, such as gold, become more popular.I feel gold stocks should not necessarily be ruled out by investors as part of a diverse portfolio of companies. Certainly, the long-term prospects for gold carries risks. The economic outlook is likely to continue improving so the price of the precious metal could come under pressure. However, as Warren Buffett has said many times previously, buying high-quality companies at low prices can lead to impressive returns. Gold stocks should not automatically be excluded from that description.Long-term growth opportunitiesClearly, now could be an opportune moment to follow Buffett’s advice regarding the purchase of undervalued stocks. Many sectors continue to trade at low prices, despite having strong recovery potential over the coming years. In many cases, their share prices continue to lag their long-term averages because they have failed to recover from the 2020 stock market crash.As such, now could be the right time to build a portfolio of cheap stocks and hold them over the long run. Doing so could lead to impressive returns in the coming years. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Enter Your Email Address I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

Trump backs Erdoğan regime in Turkey

Posted on June 15, 2021Categories lodfkjsaTags , , , , , , , , , , ,   Leave a comment on Trump backs Erdoğan regime in Turkey

first_imgThousands in Paris protest Turkey’s detention of a pro-Kurdish party’s leaders.With just 51.4 percent of the vote, Turkey’s President Recep Erdoğan won a national referendum on April 16 that vastly increases his executive power. While Erdogan announced, “My nation stood upright and undivided” (, April 22), large demonstrations against the government broke out in several cities across the country. Voters in three of the largest cities in Turkey — Izmir, Istanbul and Ankara — all voted against the measure.Opposition parties in Turkey condemned the vote as rigged, particularly due to unstamped and unsigned ballots. They called for election results to be set aside. The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, which represents the view of many European governments, stated: “We observed the misuse of state resources, as well as the obstruction of ‘No’ campaign events.” (, April 17)The election results permit Erdoğan to directly appoint top officials, increase his time in office to two five-year terms, exert more control over the judiciary and decide when to impose a state of emergency. After the referendum, Erdoğan announced plans for a vote to reinstate the death penalty in the country.Even before this referendum, the Erdoğan regime has engaged in widespread and brutal repression against its political opponents, workers and the Kurdish national minority. After a coup attempt by sections of the military failed last July, the Erdoğan regime arrested more than 70,000 soldiers, jurists, academics, journalists, among many others.Erdoğan charged that a U.S.-based Turkish cleric was the mastermind of the coup and that the Obama administration supported the coup attempt. The Turkish president knows that most of Turkey’s people hate and mistrust U.S. imperialism. Despite his verbal attacks on the U.S., Erdoğan has stepped up his support of Washington’s campaign to overturn the government in Syria led by Bashar al-Assad.Just hours after the voting results, the White House issued a statement which read: “President Donald J. Trump spoke today with President Recep Erdoğan of Turkey to congratulate him on his recent referendum victory and to discuss the United States’ action in response to the Syrian regime’s use of chemical weapons on April 4. President Trump thanked President Erdoğan for supporting this action by the United States, and the leaders agreed on the importance of holding Syrian President Bashar al-Assad accountable.” (, April 18)That Erdoğan found it necessary to increase his powers of repression shows his lack of real, popular support. The continuing protests of the referendum and of his rule are a clear sign that the people in Turkey want to free themselves from this ruler who depends on the military and police to stay in power.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Doctors: Take the shot; keep the precautions

Posted on June 2, 2021Categories lodfkjsaTags , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,   Leave a comment on Doctors: Take the shot; keep the precautions

first_img WhatsApp Local News WhatsApp Pinterest Pinterest By Ruth Campbell – May 17, 2021 Twitter Rohith Saravanan It’s unknown how long the COVID-19 vaccines will stay effective, but local doctors say it’s still a good idea to get the shot and take precautions.Recently, White House Chief Medical Advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci said people may need to get booster shots, the CNBC website said. Dr. Rohith Saravanan, chief medical officer at Odessa Regional Medical Center, and Dr. Timothy Benton, regional chairman, associate dean for clinical affairs and professor at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, discussed vaccine effectiveness with the Odessa American.“The current answer is we don’t know exactly how long it’s effective for,” Saravanan said. “The vaccine is basically giving you the ability to create an antibody against one spike protein on the virus surface.“There are multiple proteins on the virus’s surface, but we are creating an antibody against one protein. That antibody helps identify the virus in our body so our white blood cells can then destroy the virus. That’s how the antibody works. So as long as that one spike protein on the viral surface does not change, the vaccine will continue to be effective.“The way that viral spike protein can change is that with all these variants we’re seeing, we see a variant of the virus with that spike protein,” Saravanan said. “Then this antibody no longer can identify that virus. Until that time, we won’t know how long the vaccine lasts. That’s the true scientific answer, so the best way to explain it to people is that we won’t know it’s not effective anymore and we’ll need a booster for it.”As soon as new variants start coming out and are being identified, Saravanan said, companies that make vaccines will start creating countermeasures.“They start identifying those variants and creating a vaccine that can affect those variants,” he said. “So far, most of the variants that have come out have not changed that one spike protein that our vaccines are effective against.“Pfizer is against one those spike proteins; Moderna is against another one. So far, the variants have not changed those spike proteins, so our vaccines currently work against all of those different variants. But companies are always working on new things and as soon as we see something new that it doesn’t work against, then the companies will have the booster for those, probably within weeks of identification of that variant.”Saravanan said if you get infected by the virus, despite the fact that you have a vaccine, you are going to go into isolation.“If we identify a variant in the community that we know that the vaccine doesn’t work against and it’s rampant, you get exposed to it and we know that even though you’ve been vaccinated, that vaccine doesn’t work against that variant that we’ve identified,” he said. “Then you would be in quarantine at that point in time. That hasn’t happened so far, but it could.”Dr. Timothy Benton, MD of Medical Center Hospital addresses the questions from members of the Odessa City Council on Monday, March 30, at the Odessa Central Fire Station during an emergency meeting where a shelter in place order was passed. (Eli Hartman)Benton agreed that it’s not known what the long-term immunity from the vaccine is because it hasn’t been around that long.“… There was a study in the December New England Journal of Medicine about the … antibodies in people after immunization, and they demonstrated in there that after three months there was some decline in the amount of antibodies present. But (it was) still relatively high numbers so it’s not like it went to zero. … The studies are ongoing. When we get nine months out from having given vaccine, then we can test antibody levels and see where they are,” Benton said.He added that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention quarantine recommendation has changed, so if you are exposed and have been vaccinated you don’t have to quarantine.“On the flip side, the CDC says if you are vaccinated to take the appropriate precautions because we don’t know just yet how long the immunity will last,” Benton said.He cited the flu vaccine as an example of one that many people get every year and said there are other vaccines that offer longer lasting immunity like human papillomavirus virus or the polio vaccine.“We just don’t have enough history with SARS-CoV-2 to know how long that immunity’s going to last from the vaccine or from a natural immunity. I think it’s encouraging that we haven’t had really high numbers of repeat infections,” Benton said. “Those people who have had the disease, there are not high numbers of reported reinfection. However, we have to be careful when we say that, too, because there could have been reinfections that we just don’t know about.”A member of Odessa Fire Rescue administers the second dose of a Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to a West Texan as they make their way through the booster shot clinic put on by the City of Odessa and Medical Center Hospital Thursday, March 4, 2021, at Ratliff Stadium. (Eli Hartman|Odessa American)With a fair number of people vaccinated in the community, there seem to be fewer cases, Benton said.“The general observations are very positive with the vaccine. There seem to be empiric evaluations of declining numbers. You can look at our community. We’re in much better shape after the virus has naturally infected a number and a fairly significant number of the population has been vaccinated. So the cases are declining, but that’s anecdotal, or observational, or not necessarily scientific. But I’m encouraged even from that initial study that was in December that even though the antibodies declined in some people, it was declining at a relatively low rate,” he added.Saravanan said there are two reasons to wear masks after vaccination. One is personal and the second is community. Since this interview, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has said it’s OK not to wear in most indoor or outdoor settings and the Pfizer vaccine has been given emergency use authorization for children 12 to 15.“The personal reason is that COVID-19 vaccines are effective. However, a small percentage of people who are fully vaccinated will still get COVID if they are exposed to the virus,” Saravanan said. “That’s called vaccine breakthrough cases. … We say the vaccine is 95 percent effective, but what about the other 5 percent? So those other 5 percent can still get sick because they did not gather up the antibodies that the vaccine was supposed to help them gather. So you could still get it. That’s one of the reasons to wear a mask. …“The second reason is the community reason. The community reason is that once you have immunity against a virus, those antibodies are in your blood which means if the virus enters you bloodstream your antibodies will immediately go to work and destroy that virus but it does not stop the virus from entering your nose, your mouth your lungs. So you could still be carrying the virus in your mucosal surfaces — in your nose, in your mouth and your lungs,” Saravanan added.He said even though you won’t get sick and if the virus gets in your antibodies it will be destroyed, you could still be carrying it in your nose and your mouth.“If you cough or sneeze on someone else that’s not vaccinated they could catch the virus from you. That’s the reason you still continue wearing a mask for the community,” Saravanan said.If you are outdoors and you can maintain a safe distance from people, you don’t need to wear a mask. If you are indoors, you always need to wear a mask because by definition you can’t maintain good distance from people.If you haven’t been vaccinated, even if you can distance yourself from people indoors you should wear a mask. If you have been vaccinated and you’re indoors with other vaccinated people, it’s OK not to wear a mask.“Unfortunately, there are going to be some people who need a little more convincing than other people,” Saravanan said. “The vaccines are extremely safe. We know this because we are seeing it even in the news. Remember the recent time when the Johnson & Johnson vaccine was pulled out for a period of time and then it was reintroduced?“The Johnson & Johnson vaccine had been given to 6 million people. There were six women between the ages of 18 and 48 who got clots in their brains. They did not know whether it was related to the vaccine or not, so they immediately stopped giving that vaccine out and they said we need more information. We need to collect more data.“We need to analyze the data some more. Six million people and six people got a clot. That’s much less probability than pretty much everything else we do in life; even walking on the road there’s a higher possibility that you’ll get hit by a car at that kind of statistic so the fact is they are  extremely careful with vaccines.“Even if they slightly believe that a vaccine could cause harm, they absolutely will stop it and they will do more research. Once they did the research, it took them 11 days to collect all the information. They collected information for the full 11 days analyzed all the information and then the CDC and the FDA came together and said we are satisfied that this is not a causal relationship. The vaccine did not cause the clot. Yes, there’s a correlation, so we’ll let people know that there’s a correlation, but the risk is much, much lower than the benefit of the vaccine. Therefore, we will release the vaccine again,” Saravanan said.center_img Twitter Facebook TAGSAnthony FauciCOVID-19Odessa Regional Medical CenterRohith SaravananTexas Tech University Health Sciences CenterTimothy Bentonvaccine Doctors: Take the shot; keep the precautions Facebook Previous articleCATES: EMS Week is hereNext articleWilson & Young redesign powers ahead Ruth Campbelllast_img read more

Minneapolis girl, 11, hit by car after getting off school bus

first_imgjetcityimage/iStock(MINNEAPOLIS) — A young Minneapolis girl was in critical condition on Monday after she was hit by a car while exiting her school bus.Shianne Dean, an 11-year-old student at Stonebridge World School in southern Minneapolis, was getting off her school bus on Friday afternoon when a driver slammed into her, leaving her in critical condition, police said. Gregory Garth, 60, was arrested on the scene on charges of criminal vehicular operation, police said. He was released as of Monday pending formal charges, according to the Minneapolis Police Department.Witnesses said he was traveling at a high speed when he allegedly attempted to go around the stopped bus. Authorities are investigating whether the bus stop arm was out at the time of the incident.Minneapolis police spokesperson Sergeant Darcy Horn said investigators will look into if the driver may have been speeding or was intoxicated before the accident.“It’s a shocking case and it’s upsetting to everyone,” Horn told ABC News in an interview on Monday. “When drivers see school buses whenever they’re driving through neighborhood areas they use caution and look out, not only for pedestrians and children but also for vehicles and bicyclists that may be stopped.”Monarch Bus Company, operator of the bus involved, said it was doing all it could to help with the investigation.“Student safety is of utmost importance to us, and that is why our foremost thoughts and prayers are with the student, her family, and the entire Stonebridge World School community,” the school bus operator said. “We are working with local law enforcement and the school during the ongoing investigation of this incident.”LaTonya Williams, Shianne’s mom, said the accident left her angry and heartbroken.“She was getting off the bus coming from school, from learning, and you struck a child,” she told ABC affiliate WHAS-TV on Monday. “That’s not fair.”She said her daughter was fighting for her life.“She’s a fighter,” she said. “And all I can see is my daughter laying there with her eyes rolling in the back of her head.”“She’s a fun-loving girl. Always smiling. Really helpful,” she added. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
