Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.center_img About six years ago, the UK outsourcer Serco Group (LSE: SRP) was on the brink of bankruptcy following a scandal surrounding Ministry of Justice tagging contracts. This week, strong earnings results allowed the company to reinstate its dividend for the first time since 2014, and I for one think this is a good sign.First signs of recovery?At first glance, you could be forgiven for thinking this is just the start of Serco’s recovery but it is the result of a lot of work in recent years. Indeed CEO Rupert Soames described the issuance of the one-penny per share dividend as an “important milestone”, saying the company had “finally achieved escape velocity, leaving behind the gravitational pull of past mis-steps”.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…Looking back at its shares over the past few years, I think this analogy of reaching terminal velocity to get away from its troubles is perhaps the best way of looking at this week’s news. As far back as 2016 there were signs that things were on the up for Serco, and indeed, that year did see its share price almost double from trough to peak.These gains were soon given back however, and the stock started 2019 at the same levels it started 2016. Naturally, this suggests caution. But the share price gains during 2019 do seem to be significant, particularly following a couple of years of a fairly stagnant price. The fact that the company is confident enough to now pay out a dividend would seem to suggest it feels secure in its finances once again – with good reason.Zero-sum gameThough in practical terms very few industries or sectors are truly zero-sum games, Serco has had a lot to benefit from in the outsourcing sector following controversy and financial troubles for many of its rivals.In 2018, Carillion went bust after, among other things, a number of botched government contracts. Interserve is now in the hands of its creditors, while rivals Mitie and Capita are also struggling after a number of profit warnings.Just this month, Serco won a £200m contract to take over the running of two immigration removal centres, in large part because the other big player in the sector, G4S, did not bid following controversy raised about its conduct at the centres by a Panorama documentary in 2017.Serco’s latest full-year results show that revenue climbed almost 15%, while underlying profit jumped about 30% on the previous year to £120m. Much of this comes on the back of large contract wins: a £1.9bn deal for asylum-seeker accommodation, an £800m prisoner escort and custody contract, and a £600m deal with the Australian defence forces to provide healthcare services.Nor is the company resting on its laurels, acquiring a US navy supplier last year in a deal worth £225m. In fact, this expansion into the US, as well as contracts such as the Australian defence forces one, mean that international business now accounts for about 60% of Serco’s revenues.Given the gains made in the share price, I am slightly cautious about investing just yet, holding out for a short-term dip might bring about a buying opportunity. In all honesty though, nothing I can see would suggest this will be forthcoming. Perhaps this is a case of the adage “buy high, sell higher”. 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. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool.

Archbishop of Canterbury praises for ‘bridge-building’ archbishop of Jerusalem

He repeatedly recited a phrase that he had heard during his visit: “If you come to the Holy Land for two weeks, you think you understand the situation. If you come for two years, you understand that you know nothing about the situation.”I’m glad the Archbishop visited Hebron and the tomb of Abraham. I wonder, however, how he felt walking under the protective chicken wire or making his way through the turnstile. I wonder, too, whether he walked the block to Shuhada Street and its Jersey wall.There is a time for bridge-building. There is, more urgently, a time for tearing down the walls. And there is a time for speaking truth and condemning injustice. The Church should be involved in all three tasks. What is “daft” is its not doing so. What is “daft” is being careful about what we say in the face of injustice.

COVID and wildfires fuel call for mass prisoner releases

first_imgDemonstrators speak out at house of CDC Secretary Diaz on Aug. 30.Sacramento — Spiking COVID-19 levels in California state prisons, coupled with raging wildfires and dangerously poor air quality, have fueled a statewide movement demanding  the mass release of prisoners. On Aug. 30, a boisterous and angry coalition of prisoners’ family members, former prisoners and prisoners’ rights activists protested outside the homes of California Department of Corrections (CDC) Secretary Ralph Diaz and Gov. Gavin Newsom, who both reside in Sacramento, the state capital. The demonstration, organized by No Justice Under Capitalism, included a large number of spouses and other relatives of prisoners who are part of We Are Their Voices.Reported COVID-19 infections of California state prisoners have reached 10,565, with 57 reported deaths. Gov. Newsom has refused to order mass releases of prisoners, for whom COVID could be a death sentence. California prisons are filled with the elderly and people with life-threatening and chronic illnesses. Many wildfires in the vicinity of prisons, including the California Medical Facility at Vacaville and California State Prison-Solano, continue to spew clouds of ash and dust. While area residents have been evacuated, the CDC has yet to evacuate any of the prisons.Outside Secretary Diaz’s house, angry family members spoke about their loved ones in prison. Their message was strong and simple: “Let them go! We will take care of them.” One of the excuses given by prison administrators to justify their inaction has been to say that the prisoners have nowhere to go. If today’s demonstrations were any indication, many of the prisoners have loving family members who want them returned to the community so they can provide them with care. Later at Gov. Newsom’s house, protesters demanded the governor come out and speak with them. Newsom, who was known to be home at the time of the protest, was nowhere to be seen. The coalition promised to return until the prison system acts to save the lives of California prisoners.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Glenn Greenwald

first_img AmericasUnited States AmericasUnited States Glenn Greenwald is a former lawyer, journalist and star blogger of the US edition of the Guardian newspaper. He will always be remembered as the journalist behind the revelations by Edward Snowden. He first met the man who a few days later became the most famous whistleblower in history in a tiny Hong Kong hotel room in May 2012. Snowden handed over to the American journalist tens of thousands of classified documents that showed the extent of the surveillance practices of the British and US intelligence services. Working alone from Rio de Janeiro, Greenwald shook the world’s most powerful nation and its British allies to their foundations. US President Barack Obama and Britain’s prime minister, David Cameron, were publicly confronted with evidence of the abuses carried out by their intelligence services. They were faced with a diplomatic firestorm and an outcry from activists and campaigners for a free Internet. It was largely thanks to Greenwald’s work that the Guardian US was awarded the prestigious Pulitzer Prize for “its revelation of widespread secret surveillance by the National Security Agency” and for sparking “a debate about the relationship between the government and the public over issues of security and privacy”.

Man rescued after spending 3 weeks in the Alaskan wilderness

first_imgiStock(SALT LAKE CITY) — A man who survived more than three weeks in the Alaskan wilderness after a fire burned down his home and killed his dog was rescued after writing “SOS” in the snow.Troopers from the Alaska Department of Public Safety responded to a welfare check for Tyson Steele, 30, at his remote home about 20 miles outside of Skwentna Thursday after he had not been heard from for several weeks, authorities said.Steele’s cabin burned down in mid-December, killing his 6-year-old chocolate Labrador retriever named Phil and leaving him stranded in sub-zero temperatures with no means of communication for 23 days, according to DPS.Steele told authorities that he believes putting a “big piece of cardboard” into his old woodstove is what sparked the fire.“Which I knew was a problem, I’ve had woodstoves all my life,” he said. “I knew that you don’t do that. So, it sent a spark out through my chimney which landed on the roof.”The roof of the cabin caught fire around 1 or 2 a.m., causing him to leap out of bed and stumble out of the door. When he tried to re-enter the home, he was “met by an explosive ball of flame,” he said.Steele thought Phil had run out of the house after he jumped off the bed, he said, describing him as the “best dog in the world.”Steele was wearing felt-lined boots with no socks, long johns and a heavy wool sweater, he said. He survived on canned food, which he had enough for two cans a day for 30 days, and created a “snow cave” to sleep in, he said.Once Steele built a second shelter, he kept the woodstove on “perpetually” and used it to heat up his food, he said.He had been living alone in the cabin, surrounded by miles of forests, hills and rivers, since September, according to DPS. His nearest neighbor was 20 miles away.Rescuers located Steele waving his arms near a makeshift shelter after he had carved out “SOS” in large lettering in the snow.His first request was for a shower and a “McDonald’s Combo Meal No. 2,” according to officials, who likened his unkempt appearance to Tom Hanks’ character in the movie Cast Away.Steele said he’s “not exactly trained” in outdoor survival but had “always been in the outdoors” and worked in the industry.He plans to go back to Salt Lake City, where his family lives, he said.
