Image source: Getty Images Buying UK shares might not be on the priority list for many investors right today. Even though some of the best stocks to buy are trading at rock-bottom prices, concerns over the global economy are forcing large numbers of investors to remain planted on the sidelines.This is a huge shame, in my opinion. The recent stock market crash allows brave investors to build a winning portfolio of UK shares at bargain-basement prices. Buying stocks at low prices allows you and me to boost the returns we make over the long run. Many of these top-quality shares are likely to soar in value over the next decade as the economic recovery kicks in.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…With this in mind, here is an exceptional UK share that fell heavily during the stock market crash. I think it now looks too good to miss.One of the best UK shares out there?Bloomsbury Publishing (LSE: BMY) has all the tools to thrive many years into the future.Its blockbuster Harry Potter franchise is as popular and dependable as ever. Sales of these books helped drive revenues at its consumer division 28% higher in the four months to June. But the evergreen appeal of Hogwarts’s favourite son isn’t the only reason to buy Bloomsbury. The small cap entered the high-growth digital academic resources arena a few years back and is investing heavily here to drive future profits. It estimated back in 2016 that university libraries have a budget of around £5bn, giving it plenty of business.The Covid-19 outbreak has damaged Bloomsbury’s business in 2020 as bookshops were closed en masse. But City analysts reckon the subsequent earnings dip predicted for this financial year (to February 2021) will be a fleeting problem. Consensus suggests that this UK share will roar back from a 31% bottom-line reversal with a 12% rise in fiscal 2022.Dividends to returnThe number crunchers also expect that this bright outlook will encourage Bloomsbury, which has recently taken steps to reinforce its balance sheet, to reinstate the dividend and pay another meaty full-year reward. At current prices the publishing giant sports an inflation-mashing 3.6% dividend yield.Bloomsbury’s share price has slumped around 25% since the start of the year, providing a brilliant buying opportunity in my book (no pun intended). The shares had doubled in value (up 102% to be exact) during the five years to the beginning of 2020.With bookstores reopening I expect it to get back to doing what it does best: generating monster amounts of cash (thanks predominantly to Mr Potter) and paying big, big dividends. It’s easy to forget that Bloomsbury had hiked the annual dividend every year for almost 25 years prior to the croonavirus crisis.Bloomsbury is one company I’d buy despite the prospect of a global economic downturn. The stock market crash means that there are many other top UK shares are too cheap to miss right now, too. It’s time to go shopping, I think. See all posts by Royston Wild

Unlike flat cooling blankets, the â€œCureWrapâ€ technology allows parents to hold and bond with their babies during treatment.Huntington Memorial Hospital has become the first hospital in California to acquire wrap-around cooling blankets for use with babies at risk of brain damage. The blankets are used to induce hypothermia, a treatment that may prevent or minimize the long-term consequences of brain injury in newborns.Traditional flat cooling blankets lay under the patient. Conversely, Huntington Hospitalâ€™s new â€œCureWrapâ€ blankets wrap around the babyâ€™s body and can be positioned as needed. Most importantly, the blankets allow parents to hold their babies in their arms during the treatment, which typically lasts four days. With flat blankets parents are not allowed to hold their babies because their body warmth would transfer and interfere with the treatment.â€œWhen a baby suffers a traumatic brain injury, the body responds in certain ways that can often make the injury more severe,â€ said Jamie W. Powers, MD, the medical director at Huntington Hospital NICU. â€œHypothermia may limit some of these harmful responses and improve the outcomes for these tiny patients. Now with our CureWrap blankets, babies and parents are more comfortable and the cooling process is more precise.â€Another advantage of CureWrap is that babies are covered up. â€œWith a traditional cooling blanket the infant cannot be swaddled or blankets placed over, so they’re really left exposed,â€ said Dr. Powers.CureWrap blankets can also be used in ambulances or helicopter transport, decreasing the time between diagnosis or birth and proper cooling. Huntington Hospital provides emergency transport services by ambulance or helicopter, 24 hours a day, seven days a week with highly trained neonatal transport team delivering medical support during the journey.The blankets and their accompanying CritiCool control units are made by Mennen Medical and are used throughout Europe and Asia. A few dozen hospitals in the United States are currently using the CureWrap/CritiCool system, but Huntington Hospital is the first in California.Huntington Memorial Hospital is a 625-bed not-for-profit hospital that is home to the only Level II Trauma Center and the only Level III NICU in the San Gabriel Valley. In addition to being granted MagnetÂ® status in 2011, Huntington Hospital has been ranked nationally by U.S. News and World Report in two specialties and was named the 8th best hospital in California. Renowned for its programs in neurosciences, cardiovascular services and cancer care, Huntington Hospital is an active teaching hospital with graduate medical education programs in internal medicine and general surgery. Consistent with its mission, the hospital provides millions of dollars annually in charity care, benefits for vulnerable populations, health research, education and training, and support programs that may otherwise be absent from the community.

Swilly Rovers Football Club have lost their appeal to have sanctions and a €1,000 fine lifted by the FAI in the aftermath of racist allegations at Swilly Park.The club will now consider other avenues of appeal to have the sanctions overturned in the controversy involving an Under 15 SFAI Cup game against Castlebar Celtic played on March 1st.A player, Thierry Baba and his club alleged that he was racially abused at the game – a claim strenuously denied by the Donegal club. The Tirconail Tribune reports the appeal was heard on Tuesday on the decision of the Schoolboys Football Association of Ireland to hit Swilly with a €1,000 fine and ban from playing any more home matches this season in national underage cup competitions.On Wednesday morning Swilly Chairperson Edward Diver confirmed news of the FAI’s decision not to overturn the sanctions. He added that it would now be a matter for the club to decide whether to explore other possible appeal avenues or legal options in relation to their case.Mr Diver declined to make any further comment on the matter until after a formal club meeting was held to discuss the FAI decision.Swilly officials including Chairperson Edward Diver, Secretary Mick Geever, Schoolboys Secretary P.J. Kavanagh and U-15 managers Tony McNamee and Brian Harte attended the appeal hearing at the FAI Headquarters in Abbottstown on Tuesday and were accompanied by solicitor Seamus Gunn. While Mr Diver said he was pleased with the way their case had been heard by the FAI Appeals Committee there is understandable disappointment within the club that at least some of the sanctions were not lifted.The only minor alteration to the initial punishment handed down is that €500 of the original €1,000 fine is to be paid to a national anti-racism programme.The appeal was heard on Tuesday after Swilly had sought a deferral of the hearing, which was originally scheduled for last Friday in order to deal with a large volume of documentation that was been received in relation to the alleged racist chanting towards Thierry Baba during an U-15 cup game against Castlebar Celtic at the beginning of March in Ramelton.The original sanctions were handed down by the Schoolboys Football Association of Ireland (SFAI) following a disciplinary meeting in Dublin three weeks ago.Swilly has also been ordered to undertake an FAI Intercultural Racism programme. As a result of the appeal the Ramelton side’s U-15 SFAI Cup quarter-final game against Kerry’s Kingdom Boys scheduled for March 22nd at a neutral venue in Lucan, Dublin did not go ahead.The match had originally been a home game for Swilly until the disciplinary sanctions were handed down. The rescheduling of that game will depend on what course of action the Swilly Rovers Club now decide upon after their appeal was turned down.SWILLY ROVERS LOSE APPEAL OVER RACIST ALLEGATIONS was last modified: April 3rd, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Castlebar CelticSFAIswilly roversThierry Baba
South Africa kept its fourth position out of 54 countries in the 2015 Ibrahim Index of African Governance, released on Monday, and edged up in the safety and rule of law category. South Africa’s ranking on the 2015 Ibrahim Index of African Governance didn’t remains at fourth spot as last year. Slight improvements have been made to the country’s rule of law and rural sector. (Images: Brand South Africa) • Piketty’s focus on inequality may also set a blueprint for the study of economics • We look up to you: Ibrahim • Active citizenship in South Africa at a healthy level • South Africa rises 7 places in annual WEF Global Competitiveness Index • What South Africa can learn from Piketty about addressing inequality Shamin ChibbaSouth Africa has kept its fourth position out of 54 countries on the Ibrahim Index of African Governance (IIAG), while gaining ground in the safety and rule of law category. According to the 2015 IIAG, released in London on Monday 5 October, the country’s overall score increased by 0.2 points from 72.8 in 2013 to 73 in 2014.This follows an improved performance in the 2015/16 World Economic Forum annual Global Competitiveness Index, released last week, which saw South Africa rise seven places from 56 to 49 of 140 countries.The Ibrahim Index ranks a country’s overall governance within the African context. It is organised into four distinct conceptual categories: economic opportunity, safety and rule of law, participation and human rights, and human development.The IIAG, produced annually since 2007, is one of the key initiatives the Mo Ibrahim Foundation – established by Sudanese-British mobile communications mogul Mo Ibrahim – uses to improve governance and leadership in Africa.Improved data this year allows South Sudan, Africa’s newest country, to be included in the index, together with its northern neighbour Sudan.South Africa’s law, safety improvingWithin the safety and rule of law category, South Africa’s increasing standards were reflected in the score, moving from 66.9 in 2013 to 68.4 in 2014.While the country’s business environment remains stable, its rural sector improved from 59.8 in the previous index to 62.3 this year.According to a statement from the Ibrahim Foundation, the gap in overall governance between the regions is widening, with Southern Africa still the best performing region with an average of 58.9. “[They are] followed by West Africa (52.4), North Africa (51.2) and East Africa (44.3). Central Africa is the lowest ranking region with an average score of 40.9, and is the only region to have deteriorated since 2011.”There has also been a marginal improvement in Africa’s overall governance. This is “underpinned by positive performances in only two categories, human development (+1.2) and participation and human Rights (+0.7)”. However, the index found both sustainable economic opportunity (-0.7) and safety and rule of law (-0.3) have deteriorated. Note that the ranking cannot be compared with previous years’ data. Annual refinements are made to the scores, and the entire IIAG dataset is revised retrospectively. Analysis above therefore draws comparisons between years based entirely on 2015 IIAG dataset. For more details on methodology, see themethodologysection of the IIAG website.
