The work will be mostly comprised of manual labour such as picking up litter and will be in four-week blocks of 30 hours.Duncan Smith says the scheme will help to end the “culture of dependency” amongst long-term unemployed and reduce the overall welfare bill. However, he is yet to announce how much the scheme could cost the government in administration fees.Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams slammed the plans. He said: “People who are struggling to find work and struggling to find a secure future are, I think, driven further into a sort of downward spiral of uncertainty, even despair, when the pressure is on in this way.“People are often in this starting place not because they are wicked or stupid or lazy but because circumstances have been against them. To drive that spiral deeper does seem a great problem.” Sunday 7 November 2010 9:23 pmlast_img read more

The initial cost for the opening and closing ceremonies were project to be 9.1 billion yen ($82 billion) when the Games were awarded to Tokyo six years ago.Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee, however, opines the cost is still reasonable. “Using London Olympics spending as a model, I think this is the minimum we need to spend to get the job done,” Muto said and added the privately funded operating budget of 600 billion yen ($5.5 billion) would be unchanged.

Witan Investment Trust (LSE: WTAN) is a popular investment at the moment. Last week, the trust was the third most purchased stock on Hargreaves Lansdown‘s investment platform. Is this a trust I should consider for my own portfolio? I’m taking a look at the investment case. 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…Witan Investment Trust: investment strategyWitan’s Investment Trust is a global equity product that seeks to construct a diversified portfolio covering a broad range of markets and sectors. Its aim is to offer a distinctive way for investors to access the opportunities created by global economic growth. Its benchmark is a composite of 85% global equities (MSCI All Country World Index) and 15% UK equities (MSCI UK IMI Index).Multi-manager approachWhat’s unique about Witan is that it employs an ‘multi-manager’ approach, with its capital managed by selected managers with different styles and specialisations. It selects what it considers to be ‘exceptional’ third-party managers who are expected to outperform their assigned benchmarks. Most of these managers are not available for investment by UK individuals. One example of a manager that Witan uses is star fund manager Nick Train. He currently manages around 14% of the trust’s assets. Each different manager has their own style, which means that the trust is quite diversified in its approach.Portfolio breakdownLooking at the holdings, the trust certainly has an interesting composition.The top 20 holdings include a climate change fund, a mining trust, and multiple private equity funds. There’s also a mix of tech stocks such as Alphabet and MercadoLibre and consumer goods stocks such as Unilever and Diageo.Sector wise, the trust is quite diversified. It’s not heavily exposed to the technology sector like some other global equity trusts are.Source: Witan Investment Trust. Data as of 31/12/2020. Geography wise, the trust has over half its assets in the US and the UK.Source: Witan Investment Trust. Data as of 31/12/2020. PerformanceOver the last five years, Witan’s net asset value (NAV) has risen 69.5%. That equates to an annualised return of about 11.1%.That’s a solid return. However, it is below its benchmark, which has increased 74%. It’s also well below a lot of other global investment trusts. For example, Monks Investment Trust, which I listed as one of my top investment trust picks for 2021, delivered a NAV increase of 174% over the same period.FeesIn terms of fees, this trust isn’t so cheap. Ongoing charges are 0.79% per year excluding the performance fee. With the performance fee, fees rise to 0.87%. Monks, by contrast, offers a fee of 0.48%.My view on Witan Investment TrustHaving taken a closer look at Witan Investment Trust, I can say that it’s not a trust I’d personally invest in. There are three main reasons why.Firstly, the investment strategy is too mixed for me. I prefer funds and trusts that offer a clear strategy. Smithson is a good example of one such trust.Secondly, the performance has been underwhelming. A 70% return for a global portfolio over the last five years is not brilliant.Third, fees are quite high, given the performance.All things considered, I think there are better trusts to invest in right now.

Six players who can ignite England in South Africa

first_img Expand Ahead of England’s three-Test series in South Africa, Ali Stokes highlights six players who can revive England’s form Alex LozowskiOne area that has plagued England for years has been the lack of a consistent, definable centre partnership. Jones has persevered with injured duo Jonathan Joseph or Ben Te’o alongside Farrell so far, but Alex Lozowski should be the man to fill the No 13 jersey this summer.Lozowski has been in storming form for Saracens ever since his positional switch in the last third of the season and thoroughly outplayed his opposite man and England competitor Henry Slade during the Aviva Premiership final last month.Midfield rivals: Alex Lozowski looks to break past Henry Slade in the Premiership final (Getty Images)Slade may have the magic to pull a rabbit out of a scrum cap at times, but his inconsistency on the biggest stages is of concern. In a stark contrast, Lozowski has proven his resolve to be steely and his running game to be striking.Thunderous in the tackle, quick enough to scythe through defensive gaps and the vision borne of time at fly-half makes Lozowski a genuine threat and the man to take the game to the Springboks this weekend.Elliot DalyUtilised almost exclusively on the wing at Test level, Daly’s stint at full-back against the Barbarians produced striking, memorable results. It was a performance that will no doubt have caught the imagination of England’s coaching contingent.First 15: Elliot Daly played at full-back against the Barbarians (Getty Images)With Jones keen to develop a greater threat from his No 15 recently, Daly looks to have set himself up as the frontrunner for the spot on this tour.Strong in contact, pace to burn, a monstrous left boot and the ability to act as a valuable creative influence, Daly simply has to start at full-back on the fast South African tracks and further afield. Daly’s all-round skill-set and genuine world-class quality could see him likened to All Blacks great Ben Smith if allowed the chance to claim the No 15 jersey as his own.Danny CiprianiFlitting between fly-half and full-back in Jones’s eyes, Cipriani has finally earned a squad inclusion and will offer his game-changing, outrageous attacking instincts off the bench against the Springboks.Vision: Danny Cipriani issues instructions during the Baa-Baas match (Getty Images)Whether Cipriani arrives to the pitch at ten or 15 is irrelevant. A spell in either spot in the final 20 minutes could see him break down defences and create opportunities only he possesses the confidence and capacity to orchestrate.

Tom’s broken wrist may have kept him out for the entirety of the international season thus far, but a return to fitness over the past two months puts him on a path to cement himself as a permanent feature in the starting XV.MORE FROM RUGBY WORLD ON ENGLAND’S SOUTH AFRICA TOUR Eddie Jones’s England squad to face South Africa In this piece we tell you everything you… Six players who can ignite England in South AfricaEngland are in dire need of many things, but of foremost importance is a victory to end a four-match losing streak, as well as the sign of improvement at the breakdown and in attack. Here are six players who can drastically improve these problem areas during this month’s three-Test series against South Africa…Jamie GeorgeIn the absence of one of the most successful captains in England’s history, hooker George should be given a starting role in South Africa alongside Saracens and British & Irish Lions comrades Mako Vunipola and Maro Itoje.A meagre two of his 25 England caps to date have been Test starts, despite his emergence as the Lions undisputed first-choice hooker in New Zealand last year.All smiles: Jamie George has the Premiership trophy. Now for the England No 2 shirt! (Getty Images)With captain Dylan Hartley ruled out of this tour with concussion issues, George has the chance to prove his attacking edge is enough to warrant the No 2 jersey long term – and to hand Owen Farrell the captain’s armband on a permanent basis.For all of Hartley’s attributes, one thing the skipper cannot produce is the type of game-breaking potential that second- and third-choice hookers George and Luke Cowan-Dickie can utilise. Such skill-sets have been noticeably absent from England’s cause of late; something George can go some way to rectifying against the Springboks.Kyle SincklerIn a similar situation to George, the Harlequins bowling ball of a tighthead possesses an attacking threat his stable, yet limited, predecessor cannot rival. In this case, Leicester stalwart Dan Cole stands between Sinckler and England’s top job on the right side of the scrum.With Cole rested following a mammoth workload this season, Sinckler has the opportunity to become an irreplaceable component in England’s game plan. With handling skills and running lines even the great England centre Will Greenwood would be proud of, Sinckler is not short of blockbuster potential.Power game: Kyle Sinckler tries to bust the France defensive line (Getty Images)In addition to his endeavours as a centre in a prop’s body, Sinckler can burrow himself in at the breakdown and build upon England’s frailties at the ruck.When you look at the best teams in the world, they have a tighthead who is more than a simple pillar at set-piece. Rugby has evolved and Sinckler has the capacity to take England up a notch.Tom CurryThe lack of a bonafide openside flanker has been a constant problem for England for more than a decade, something that was particularly prevalent during a disastrous Six Nations campaign.Eddie Jones’s side suffered from a severe lack of nous at the breakdown and were dominated by Scotland and France on both sides of the ball. The issue was caused in no small part by playing a third lock at six and blindside Chris Robshaw on the openside.Shark attack: Sale flanker Tom Curry impressed against the Barbarians (Getty Images)England lacked mobility, breakdown expertise and link play as a result. All are attributes Sale Sharks’ 19-year-old Tom Curry can contribute to substantial effect. The Gloucester-bound playmaker proved his world-class decision-making in the wider channels against the Barbarians, able to unlock defences and release the likes of Jonny May, Denny Solomona and Daly upon the opposition. The 30-year-old sees things others do not and can restore meaning to Jones’s famed term ‘finishers’.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.last_img read more

Brazil’s Rousseff ousted by coup

first_img100,000 demonstrate in Sao Paulo on Sept. 4, demanding ‘Temer out!’Sept. 4 — Completing, without surprises, a parliamentary coup that began last December, the Brazilian Senate, composed of a majority of corrupt officials subservient to the Brazilian oligarchy and to imperialism, voted 61-20 on Aug. 31 to remove Workers Party President Dilma Rousseff from office.The vote ended 13 years of Workers Party (PT) governments that began with the election of worker-leader President Lula da Silva in 2002. It took place during Brazil’s economic depression, which is part of the worldwide capitalist downturn and not a result of government policies.Rousseff’s ouster re-enforces the domination of Brazil by the 71,000 multimillionaires who rule Brazil’s 210 million people by controlling the judiciary, the corporate media and most Brazilian ­politicians.In 1964 this class imposed its rule through an open military coup by the army, part of the state apparatus that serves the capitalist ruling class. Under that brutal military government, the young Dilma Rousseff was a heroic revolutionary who aided the underground struggle and was later captured and tortured as a prisoner.The parliamentary coup also strengthens U.S. imperialism in Brazil and all Latin America, where Brazil’s role is so important. This maneuver was carried out with Washington’s support and has already won the blessing of U.S. politicians and Wall Street — as can be seen by the many articles the pro-capitalist Forbes magazine published this year attacking Rousseff.U.S. imperialism aims to overthrow the popular governments of Venezuela, Bolivia and Ecuador using similar and other tactics. It has already aided a mixture of “parliamentary coups” and naked force to overturn elected governments in Honduras and Paraguay.Illegal impeachmentThe charges brought against Rousseff were for manipulating some budget items in order to spend in one area instead of another, which is often done by governments. No funds wound up in Rousseff’s pockets.According to Latin American analysts, no one in Brazil, even those who oppose the PT, believes Rousseff is really guilty of the rampant corruption in which the rightist parties (and some PT elements) have participated.On the other hand, most of those in the Senate who voted against Rousseff are themselves suspected of serious corruption in the so-called Lava Jato scandal.After eight months of media attacks and scrutiny, when Rousseff was at a low point of popularity, her approval ratings were still higher than those for the new president. Current President Michel Temer, of the conservative Brazilian Democratic Movement Party and instigator of the impeachment against Rousseff, together with former Congress President Eduardo Cunha, were implicated in Lava Jato. Cunha was suspended from his post.Cunha, a right-wing evangelical politician who opened the impeachment process, is under investigation by the Supreme Court for corruption and money laundering. He is accused of receiving $5 million in bribes from a construction company related to Petrobras, the semi-public Brazilian petroleum company.As some of the anti-Rousseff politicians themselves admitted in recordings, they pushed the impeachment to stop the investigations. “We have to solve that sh-t [investigations into the Petrobras scandal]. We must change the government to stop this bleeding,” said former Minister of Planning Romero Juca, who had to resign after his remarks were made public. (telesur.net, Aug. 30)Pro-impeachment Senator Antonio Anastasia, who was in charge of preparing the final evidentiary report to the Senate, rejected Rousseff’s request to include the recordings, calling the facts “outside the scope of the trial.”As if to admit the trial was a farce, the Senate subsequently voted 42-36 to allow Rousseff to keep her political rights, instead of preventing her from holding any political office for eight years.Limits of social democracyThrough the early PT governments, Brazil’s economic boom allowed the government to aid the poor without confronting capitalism. Tens of millions of people living in poverty, especially in Brazil’s northern and northeastern states, received a guaranteed minimal income.The capitalist downturn hit with a vengeance, and in the past few years, unemployment doubled to more than 10 percent. The Brazilian rich took steps to make sure they got whatever wealth they could get their hands on.While enough of the poor voted PT for Rousseff to win a second term — she received 54 million votes — the PT never mobilized their supporters into popular organizations outside the electoral process. Confronted with a united bourgeois class determined to ignore democracy and bring down Rousseff’s government, the PT was comparatively weak.Rousseff tried to buttress her government by making concessions to the ruling class and the rightist parties. Every concession was met with greater demands for austerity. The concessions just deflated the popular enthusiasm that put PT in office in 2002.Popular mobilizationsThe first step of the interim Temer regime was to appoint a cabinet composed solely of European-origin men closely connected with the ruling rich. This disenfranchised the majority, consisting of women, people of African origins and Indigenous peoples. It also signaled an open attack on the working class and on all the benefits the PT had offered the poor.Through the eight months of the undemocratic impeachment process, tens of thousands of Brazilian workers, farmers and other left forces, PT supporters and critics alike, demonstrated against impeachment. These could be seen during the Olympics, when right outside the games thousands raised their main slogan, “Temer out!” (Fora Temer).This slogan and opposition to the process has popular support throughout Latin America and even in the United States. Groups like the International Action Center joined expatriate Brazilians to defend Rousseff against the Brazilian oligarchy and U.S. imperialism.But this movement was still too weak to stop the ouster. The rightists continue to reject any democratic process, including early elections this year, which most Brazilians want. While still in a difficult position, the Brazilian left has united against the Temer government.Brazilian labor expert Ricardo Antunes wrote in Vermelho, the newspaper of the Communist Party of Brazil: “The scenario we face in the next six months is daunting, and will impel the labor and social movements into passionate struggles.” Antunes expects Brazilians to “enter a period of social confrontation, of union and social demonstrations.” (vermelho.org.br, Sept. 4)In his article Antunes quotes Joao Pedro Stedile, a leader of the mass Landless Movement of farm workers and landless peasants. Stedile has called for a general popular mobilization under the theme, “Temer out!”“It’s the greatest of all the battles,” Stedile writes. “We want to struggle for changes in the political system of the country, with reforms of the political system and of the means of communication, ones that can only be carried out by a constituent national assembly. All these battles demand mass struggles and great popular mobilizations.“We expect many struggles as we move forward,” adds Stedile. The coup-makers will receive “only the scorn they deserve as they wind up in the trash bin history has reserved for them.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The antique tractors on display don’t just represent the past, for many of the owners those tractors have been a labor of love throughout a sometimes lengthy renovation process. And for Pulaski County farmer Scott Fritz, there are important memories brought back by the two tractors he is displaying.“It’s the first tractor that I remember driving, and so it’s kind of special,” he says of his orange 1948 Co-Op E3. “And it was my dad’s.”Fritz also brought a 1944 John Deere A to the fair, a tractor his sister remembers as her first tractor. He told HAT there is a new arrangement for the antiques at Pioneer Village, and he thinks it is an improvement for showcasing the tractors.

Convicted by high court, four journalists face prison sentences or, in two cases, death penalty

News A federal high court verdict finding four journalists and three press groups guilty yesterday of trying to “overthrow constitutional rule” was condemned today by Reporters Without Borders as a serious retrograde development. Two of the four journalists face a possible death sentence or life imprisonment. They are part of a group of 38 opposition members who were convicted yesterday. Most had been in prison ever since a wave of arrests in November 2005.The press freedom organisation also condemns the re-arrest of one of the four, Dawit Fassil, the deputy editor of the now-defunct weekly Satenaw, who had been released on bail in April after being held for 17 months.“Isn’t the Ethiopian government tired of harassing the opposition and press?” Reporters Without Borders asked. “More than 18 months after the November 2005 round-ups, it continues to claim to be dispensing justice, when in fact it has become a caricature of revanchism and dysfunctional democracy. This is disappointing, and very disturbing for those who saw the acquittals in April as a sign that the government was ready to compromise.”The organisation added: “The United States, which has a privileged relationship with Ethiopia, must make Prime Minister Meles Zenawi understand that these interminable proceedings have gone on long enough. This affair is becoming more and more dangerous for the country’s stability. It is time to find an honourable solution.”The refusal of the four journalists and 34 other defendants – all members of the opposition Coalition for Unity and Democracy (CUD) – to present a defence was interpreted by the high court as a confession of guilt. Among the various verdicts handed down yesterday, the court found Abay editor Mesfin Tesfaye, Ethiop editor Andualem Ayele and Asqual editor Wonakseged Zeleke guilty of “conspiring to overthrow constitutional rule” and “inciting revolt.” Mesfin and Andualem face the possibility of the death penalty or life imprisonment. Wonakseged could get 10 years.The newly rearrested Dawit faces a possible three-year sentence for publishing inaccurate information. Sentences are due to be announced on 8 July. The three press groups that were convicted – Serkalem, Sisay and Fassil – face large fines or court-ordered dissolution.Two other journalists – Addis Zena editor Wosonseged Gebrekidan and Hadar editor Dawit Kebede – did agree to present a defence. Hearings for this purpose are due to begin on 18 June.
