The FTSE 100 continues to struggle for traction following the 2020 stock market crash. Britain’s premier share index has struggled to build on its initial bounce and as a result, lots of UK shares appear too cheap to miss. But how do I sort the duds from the share market superstars?A risk too far?Lloyds Banking Group (LSE: LLOY) shares look mighty cheap based on broker forecasts for 2021. The blue-chip bank is expected to see annual earnings rebound more than 200% next year. And this leaves it trading on a rock-bottom forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 8 times. I won’t be buying this FTSE 100 firm any time soon, though.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…It’s not just the risks of a prolonged Covid-19 economic hangover that threatens Lloyds’ bottom line, although this is a significant consideration (the UK has been one of the worst-performing major economies since the coronavirus outbreak). And it’s not just because the threat of a no-deal Brexit is rising, a development that would probably create huge problems for the economy for much longer than Covid-19 likely will.It’s that the Bank of England remains hell bent on maintaining low interest rates for a prolonged period of time. To illustrate the point, just this week bank chief Andrew Bailey signalled that he’s prepared to drop the bank’s 2% inflation target. This signals that Threadneedle Street is looking to keep interest rates lower for longer and puts another question mark over Lloyds and its profits outlook.A better FTSE 100 shareThese comments by Mr Bailey mirror similar sentiments to the US Federal Reserve in recent months. Back in August, Jerome Powell, head of the central bank said that he was also considering changing the body’s inflation goal. Interest rates Stateside are, as in the UK, also rattling around record lows.Bad for savers and bad for banks like Lloyds. But further good news for companies that make money from assets that thrive in such an environment. We’re talking about precious metals producers like Fresnillo (LSE: FRES) of the FTSE 100, for example. When fears over the legitimacy of paper currencies rise, investors pile headfirst into hard currencies like gold and silver.No wonder City analysts expect Fresnillo’s yearly earnings to more than double in 2021. Though inflationary concerns aren’t the only reasons why the Footsie share’s profits appear on course to fly. The threat of Covid-19 raging long into next year, and a failure to produce a vaccine soon (if at all), should keep safe-haven demand for Fresnillo’s metal heading northwards.All these reasons explain why plenty of analysts are bullish on the gold and silver price. The prices might have stepped back recently, but this is on the back of solid profit booking following 2020’s mighty gains. I fully expect precious metal prices to rocket again. And I reckon FTSE 100-quoted Fresnillo is a great way to play this theme. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

TAGSPhillis Wheatley Previous articleNew Apopka police officer sworn-inNext article4 undeniable reasons to travel in 2017 Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Black History Month Feature: Phillis Wheatley LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Phillis Wheatley was the first black poet in America to publish a book. She was born in 1753, in West Africa and brought to New England in 1761, where John Wheatley of Boston purchased her as a gift for his wife. Although they brought her into the household as a slave, the Wheatleys took a great interest in Phillis’s education. Many biographers have pointed to her precocity; Wheatley learned to read and write English by the age of nine, and she became familiar with Latin, Greek, the Bible, and selected classics at an early age. She began writing poetry at thirteen, modeling her work on the English poets of the time, particularly John Milton, Thomas Gray, and Alexander Pope. Her poem “On the Death of the Rev. Mr. George Whitefield” was published as a broadside in cities such as Boston, New York, and Philadelphia and garnered Phillis Wheatley national acclaim. This poem was also printed in London. Over the next few years, she would print a number of broadsides elegizing prominent English and colonial leaders.Wheatley’s doctor suggested that a sea voyage might improve her delicate health, so in 1771 she accompanied Nathaniel Wheatley on a trip to London. She was well received in London and wrote to a friend of the “unexpected and unmerited civility and complaisance with which I was treated by all.” In 1773, thirty-nine of her poems were published in London as Poems on Various Subjects, Religious and Moral. The book includes many elegies as well as poems on Christian themes; it also includes poems dealing with race, such as the often-anthologized “On Being Brought from Africa to America.” She returned to America in 1773.After Mr. and Mrs. Wheatley died, Phillis was left to support herself as a seamstress and poet. It is unclear precisely when Wheatley was freed from slavery, although scholars suggest it occurred between 1774 and 1778. In 1776, Wheatley wrote a letter and poem in support of George Washington; he replied with an invitation to visit him in Cambridge, stating that he would be “happy to see a person so favored by the muses.” In 1778, she married John Peters, who kept a grocery store. They had three children together, all of whom died young. Because of the war and the poor economy, Wheatley experienced difficulty publishing her poems. She solicited subscribers for a new volume that would include thirty-three new poems and thirteen letters, but was unable to raise the funds. Phillis Wheatley, who had once been internationally celebrated, died alone in a boarding house on December 5, 1784. She was thirty-one years old. Many of the poems for her proposed second volume disappeared and have never been recovered. February 18, 2017 at 4:50 pm UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 3 COMMENTS Reply Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 I googled around and found out where the bronze statue is located. It is in Boston, Ma. That is where she was brought to, Boston Harbour, way back in the mid 1700’s on the slave ship from where she was kidnapped and taken away from her parents in West Africa, and was sold there in Boston to a couple who were very well- to- do, as a servant for his wife. Their last name was Wheatley. She was a young child, and somewhat sickly. She was given the first name Phillis, after the name of the slave ship, which was The Phillis. It was fascinating reading about her, but so sad and truly tragic that a innocent child could be snatched and sold into the bondages of slavery. I never knew of the tragic story behind the name Phillis Wheatley, I just knew that she was a intelligent lady who wrote poems, and became famous for her writings. Today slavery continues in our world, as human trafficking, right here in Central Florida, as well as around the world.

News June 12, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Call for release of cameraman Sami Al-Haj as he completes fourth year in Guantanamo Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says RSF_en News April 28, 2021 Find out more WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists United StatesAmericas News to go further NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say Follow the news on United States Organisation Reporters Without Borders today reiterated its condemnation of the arbitrary detention of Sudanese assistant cameraman Sami Al-Haj of the pan-Arab TV station Al-Jazeera, who today completes his fourth year in the US military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.Arrested by the Pakistani army on the Afghan border in December 2001, Al-Haj was handed over on 7 January 2002 to the US military, who initially held him in Afghanistan. The fourth anniversary of his transfer to Guantanamo on 13 June 2002 comes as the controversy about the detention centre has been revived by the suicides of three prisoners on 10 June.“This sad anniversary adds to the events of the past few days and illustrates the need to put an end to the legal and humanitarian outrage that is Guantanamo,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We call for Al-Haj’s immediate release as he has been held in Guantanamo for four years without any grounds. No charges have been brought against him but he continues to be subject to indefinite imprisonment. Furthermore, his lawyer says he has throat cancer and needs treatment that he could never get in prison.”Al-Haj’s case is covered in detail in “Where the United States imprisons journalists”, a report published by Reporters Without Borders in February about the risks the media face in Iraq and about the journalists held by the US military in Iraq and Guantanamo. According to his British lawyer, Clive A. Stafford-Smith, he has been questioned more than 130 times during the past four years in Guantanamo, in the course of which his interrogators have voiced threats against his family, especially his daughter. The interrogations have for the most part aimed at getting him to say there is link between Al-Jazeera and Al-Qaeda. His detention is targeted at Al-Jazeera and is an expression of the US government’s open hostility towards the Qatar-based satellite news station.The condition in which Al-Haj are being held are deplorable. He is mentally very debilitated and has been subject to torture, including torture of a sexual nature, according to Stafford-Smith, who recently voiced concern about his suicidal tendencies. “He has now been held for four years without charge, without trial, without a single visit or phone call with family or friends. He has been brutally treated. He is told by the United States that based on remarkably weak evidence, the source of which is unknown, he can be held in prison for the rest of his life. ,” Stafford-Smith said.Al-Haj’s case is far from being isolated. Six hundred other people are also imprisoned as part of the “world war against terrorism.” Reporters Without Borders joins the many political leaders and international bodies such as the UN in calling for the closure of the Guantanamo military detention centre.The US supreme court is expected to issue a ruling in the coming weeks on the legality of the special military courts set up by President George Bush to try the Guantanamo detainees. These courts were created to avoid having to bring the detainees before civilian courts because of the limited and often classified nature of the evidence against them.

Reporters Without Borders expressed surprise at the decision, which came only a few days after the Council had allowed another pan-Arab satellite station, Al-Arabiya, to resume its activities in Iraq after a two-month ban.The Council banned Al-Jazeera and Al-Arabiya last 23 September from covering its activities and all official events for two weeks for allegedly encouraging political violence and the murder of Council members and US and British troops. The move followed an assassination attempt three days earlier on Council member Akila al-Hashimi.
