See all posts by Royston Wild 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. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. UK share prices are exploding in Monday afternoon business. But I’m not getting too carried away. I don’t mean to rain on everyone’s parade but the global economy isn’t out of the woods. And there remains a long way to go in the battle against the Covid-19 crisis. I wouldn’t be surprised to see them sink again, and not just on the back of heavy profit taking.UK share markets have rocketed today thanks to a double-whammy of encouraging news. Firstly, Joe Biden’s US presidential victory has fanned hopes of a massive stimulus package for the Stateside economy. Secondly — and more significantly — Pfizer has announced its Covid-19 vaccine developed with BioNTech had shown a staggering 90% rate of efficacy.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…Hold the phoneGreat news, of course. And the explosion in investor appetite isn’t perhaps a surprise given the unrelenting gloom that’s marked 2020. But stock investors need to remain extremely careful right now.There’s still a long way to go and a lot more testing to undertake before any vaccine becomes available. And so it’s too early to suggest that UK share markets have finally turned the corner following the 2020 stock market crash. I don’t want to be a party pooper but investors should be prepared in case of fresh financial market volatility.A long economic downturn remains a very real possibility. And, as a consequence, the significantly price falls that many UK shares have endured this year could still be considered as wholly justified. Plenty of British stocks are cheap for a reason as their balance sheets face extreme pressure and their profits outlooks remain pretty murky.Getting wealthy with UK sharesI’m not too worried about what could happen to UK share prices in the short to medium term though. As a long-term investor I know I can expect to make big returns on my invested cash. Those who buy UK shares with a view to holding them for a decade, or longer, make an average annual return of at least 8%, studies show.I’ve kept buying despite the uncertain economic outlook for the next few years. I’ll go bargain hunting again should another stock market crash happen too. That way I can keep acquiring five-star stocks that have been unfairly, and heavily, sold off at dirt-cheap prices.Sure, UK share markets are surging right now on that encouraging Covid-19 vaccine news. The FTSE 100 is putting in its best one-day performance since March. But there are still plenty of top-quality stocks that still look too cheap to miss following the spring market crash.Huge question marks remain unanswered over the strength and the timing of the global economic recovery. But make no mistake. The economic rebound will happen, pulling share prices higher with it. And people who’ve kept investing in products like Stocks and Shares ISA will make a fortune in the process. The FTSE 100 is rocketing on Covid-19 vaccine news! Can UK share prices keep on rising? Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

July 25 is not just one event. It is about building a movement that responds to police violence and racist murders. The families of those murdered will be the first speakers at the July 25th march.”Hamm led several recent building actions for the event, including a United National Antiwar Coalition call with activists from 14 cities on June 30, followed by a New York City mobilizing meeting on July 7 and press conferences in Philadelphia; Camden, Montclair and Plainfield in New Jersey; and New York City.

Facebook Twitter SHARE Previous articleIndiana Farm Bureau Health Care Effort Moving Forward at Statehouse and What’s Next After the Snow and Ice on the HAT Thursday Morning EditionNext articleApplications Open for Farm Bureau Women’s Communication Boot Camp USDA Communications SHARE The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) today announced the availability of two programs that protect hemp producers’ crops from natural disasters. A pilot hemp insurance program through Multi-Peril Crop Insurance (MPCI) provides coverage against loss of yield because of insurable causes of loss for hemp grown for fiber, grain or Cannabidiol (CBD) oil and the Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP) coverage protects against losses associated with lower yields, destroyed crops or prevented planting where no permanent federal crop insurance program is available. Producers may apply now, and the deadline to sign up for both programs is March 16, 2020.“We are pleased to offer these coverages to hemp producers. Hemp offers new economic opportunities for our farmers, and they are anxious for a way to protect their product in the event of a natural disaster,” said Farm Production and Conservation Undersecretary Bill Northey.Multi-Peril Crop Insurance Pilot Insurance ProgramThe MPCI pilot insurance is a new crop insurance option for hemp producers in select counties of 21 states for the 2020 crop year. The program is available for eligible producers in certain counties in Alabama, California, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia and Wisconsin. Information on eligible counties is accessible through the USDA Risk Management Agency’s Actuarial Information Browser.Among other requirements, to be eligible for the pilot program, a hemp producer must have at least one year of history producing the crop and have a contract for the sale of the insured hemp. In addition, the minimum acreage requirement is 5 acres for CBD and 20 acres for grain and fiber. Hemp will not qualify for replant payments or prevented plant payments under MPCI.This pilot insurance coverage is available to hemp growers in addition to revenue protection for hemp offered under the Whole-Farm Revenue Protection plan of insurance. Also, beginning with the 2021 crop year, hemp will be insurable under the Nursery crop insurance program and the Nursery Value Select pilot crop insurance program. Under both nursery programs, hemp will be insurable if grown in containers and in accordance with federal regulations, any applicable state or tribal laws and terms of the crop insurance policy.Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance ProgramNAP provides coverage against loss for hemp grown for fiber, grain, seed or CBD for the 2020 crop year where no permanent federal crop insurance program is available.NAP basic 50/55 coverage is available at 55 percent of the average market price for crop losses that exceed 50 percent of expected production. Buy-up coverage is available in some cases. The 2018 Farm Bill allows for buy-up levels of NAP coverage from 50 to 65 percent of expected production in 5 percent increments, at 100 percent of the average market price. Premiums apply for buy-up coverage.For all coverage levels, the NAP service fee is $325 per crop or $825 per producer per county, not to exceed $1,950 for a producer with farming interests in multiple counties.Eligibility RequirementsUnder a regulation authorized by the 2018 Farm Bill and issued in October 2019, all growers must have a license to grow hemp and must comply with applicable state, tribal or federal regulations or operate under a state or university research pilot, as authorized by the 2014 Farm Bill.Producers must report hemp acreage to FSA after planting to comply with federal and state law enforcement. The Farm Bill defines hemp as containing 0.3 percent or less tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) on a dry-weight basis. Hemp having THC above the federal statutory compliance level of 0.3 percent is an uninsurable or ineligible cause of loss and will result in the hemp production being ineligible for production history purposes.For more information on USDA risk management programs for hemp producers, visit farmers.gov/hemp to read farmers.gov frequently asked questions.

It has been desired by the Bench that all the three States may impress upon the private diagnostic centres to reasonably slash their rates for CT Scan for Covid patients.Lastly, the bench also mentioned that since under Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) incorporated in Section 135 of the Companies Act, it is obligatory for the Companies to contribute at least 2% of their profit as social responsibility to the society in this period of crisis generated due to pandemic. The bench has left it to the three States to ask the corporate houses to participate in fighting the crisis by providing ambulances, oxygen beds, ventilators, CT Scan machines etc. to Government Hospitals so that economically weaker strata of the society has easy access to such facilities.
