Enter Your Email Address After its robust results earlier this week, I expected AIM stock and paper products manufacturer IG Design (LSE: IGR) to keep rising. The opposite has happened. Its share price actually fell by 5% yesterday. There are two ways I can interpret this. One, that this is a market aberration that will iron itself out. It could even be a sell-off in shares after its share price rose 2% on the day of the results release. Two, that something in the results’ fine print is spooking investors. So what has actually happened?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…Robust growthIG Design’s revenues grew by a whole 40% for the full year ending March 31, compared to the year before. Reported numbers saw it swinging to a pre-tax profit of $14.7m from a small loss during the year before. Its reporting currency has also switched to dollars following the acquisition of CSS Industries last year. There are more reasons to be bullish on IG Design shares too. One of them is that even in an otherwise difficult year for manufacturers of non-essential products, it grew across all its categories. Its biggest segment, celebrations, which covers products like greetings cards, wrapping paper and crackers, grew by 11%. There was also a significant uptick in the craft and creative play segment as demand for at-home entertainment took off during the lockdown. Fortunate acquisition for the AIM stockBesides some genuine demand increase, IG Design’s numbers have also been bumped up by its acquisition of US-based CSS industries. If the acquisition had not been made, the company’s revenues would have shrunk by 5% during the year.  In other words, I think it got lucky with the acquisition and its timing, which was just before the pandemic. But I do not want to take away from the fact that it was probably a very good strategic decision as well.Pandemic and prices could play spoilsportIt is also quite positive about its future, but I am still cautious for companies that cater to non-essential spending. There has been a lot of government support to keep the economy going so far. But if the pandemic continues, I am not sure how long this can carry on. And non-essential spend will be the first to be hit. Also, it has mentioned inflation as a concern for 2022. While raw material and freight costs have risen for it already, the company said that so far, they have had limited impact. There is near consensus on rising prices across companies I have looked at recently. My takeaway for the IG Design share priceHowever, there are differing views on whether inflation will continue to rise. If it does not, IG design’s challenge will go away on its own. If it does, the company sounds confident of its ability to manage it. Also, there is a higher chance that the risk of a pandemic return is lower now. I think AIM stock is definitely one to consider, I do not see anything in the fine print that would worry me.  I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

West Virginia rank-and-file education workers block privatization

first_imgW.Va. education workers take their rank-and-file anger against privatization to the Statehouse.West Virginia educators walked out, again, on Feb. 19, in a reprise of their 2018 militancy. The statewide walkout was announced the night before by union officials of the American Federation of Teachers-West Virginia, the West Virginia Education Association and the West Virginia Service Personnel Association. Classroom teachers and school personnel in office work, school transportation, general maintenance, custodial care, cafeteria work and teacher aide assignments also walked in a unified job action. Within hours on Feb. 19, the educators had won a dramatic victory, forcing the West Virginia House to vote down a reactionary privatization bill 53-45. On Feb. 20, leaders in the three West Virginia unions announced that, for the moment, strike action was suspended, and the unions reserve their right to go out again at any time if the reactionary legislative attack resumes.The walkout was in response to an anti-union “omnibus bill,” SB 451, introduced in the state Legislature as retaliation for last-year’s nine-day action. In the recent bill, the ultra-rightist state Senate brought back most of the original, rotten proposals defeated by the 2018 walkout. Prior to the Feb. 19 walkout, the House of Delegates spent a week debating and making amendments to the bill.‘Carrot-and-stick’ legislative maneuversIn a true “carrot-and-stick” manner, SB 451 was originally written to link a 5 percent pay raise and health insurance funding for teachers with reactionary legislation about charter schools, vouchers, the elimination of seniority rights and the eradication of union dues deduction through payroll. One section of the bill would have placed a cop in every school. While union officials did not take a concrete position on that, the left-leaning rank-and-file union members of the WV United Caucus raised principled opposition, which sparked intense debate on social media. Caucus members brought up issues such as the “school-to-prison” pipeline prevalent throughout North America, along with the criminalization of a whole generation of students. School policing is especially a concern for nationally oppressed students of color in the mostly white, rural areas of the state, and for LGBTQ students who live in fear of racist, homophobic and transphobic police violence.   Because of pressure from the educators, the House removed the bill’s sections on vouchers and union-dues deduction during the week’s debate. The number of charter schools the state could open was limited to two “pilot” operations. The language on seniority was slightly altered.But when some union leaders announced they would support the House changes, rank-and-file members of all three unions immediately went to social media and made it clear to the union higher-ups that the rank and file would not compromise to allow any charter schools.Then, on Jan. 18, reactionary senators — many of whom are funded by the right-wing Koch brothers and their American Legislative Exchange Committee (ALEC) — defiantly reintroduced vouchers and increased the charter school limit from two to seven. The bill was set to go back to the House, which like the Senate, is majority Republican.The walkout was announced that evening by officials of the three education workers unions.Union worker-teachers, students, community solidarity During the 2018 walkout, county superintendents had closed schools and no one who walked a picket-line was docked pay. That cooperation and leniency are even more significant in this “right-to-work” (for less) state where collective bargaining is prohibited and labor actions are illegal. This year, all but one of the 55 counties closed after the walkout announcement.  On the day of the work action, only the superintendent of education in Putnam County schools refused to close them, and the administration had a difficult time getting staff to report. Picket lines were set up at every school on Feb. 19. Bus operators did not show up, but a handful of scab mechanics did. The Putnam County superintendent ordered the mechanics to operate the buses, but the few mechanics who shamefully crossed the picket line were not experienced drivers and could not fulfill that task.Teachers and support staff from surrounding counties stood with employees on the Putnam County picket lines, starting with the bus garages at 5 a.m. Many students also joined the picketers, rather than break solidarity by going into the classrooms.In Ohio County, anti-union and pro-corporate Board of Education members called an emergency meeting, intent on filing an injunction to force strikers back inside the schools. Once again, school workers from other counties, as well as labor unionists from Wheeling, W.Va., eastern Ohio and western Pennsylvania, came to provide solidarity. Wearing mostly red, people held signs all around the outside of the Board office and filled the meeting to maximum capacity. Just as the union-busting Board members were in a private executive session, preparing to seek an injunction, the House voted 53-45 against the bill.People inside and outside the meeting started chanting, “Vote them out!” as embarrassed Board members walked out of the conference room in shame.Rank-and-file militancy in all 55 countiesFrom the very beginning of the current struggle, union officials admitted to members that they had made a mistake in 2018 by prematurely calling off that walkout. At the time the rank and file exerted leadership and led a wildcat strike until the governor signed a pay raise bill and confirmed that the nasty, anti-worker proposals were defeated. School workers continue to have little trust in the Legislature and have told union leaders they were not going back this year until there is a guarantee that House members will not reverse their “no” to the reactionary SB 451 bill. The billionaire coal-baron governor, Jim Justice, held a press conference the afternoon of the walkout, “promising” a “clean bill” that featured only a pay raise and insurance funding. He also urged school workers to go back to work. Union officials, including American Federation of Teachers national President Randi Weingarten, held a press conference at the end of the walkout’s first day. They emphasized the members’ lack of trust in state politicians. In defiance of the governor’s request, these leaders declared there would be another walkout the next day to ensure there is no take-back by the House. State Superintendent of Schools Steve Paine sent a message to county superintendents, ordering them to open schools, despite the unions’ announcement.Once again, all counties were closed except Putnam County. To the dismay of the backward legislators and a handful of cowardly Board of Education members, the threats of injunctions, disciplinary action and state intervention could not stop the school workers from being “55 United.”After teachers and support staff in West Virginia completed their work stoppage in 2018, education workers in many other states, such as Oklahoma, Kentucky and Arizona, walked out as well.Recently, educators in Los Angeles and Denver carried out victorious strikes. Despite differences in geography and conditions, the struggle is the same. Education workers are vehemently against for-profit charter schools and for smaller class sizes, better pay and affordable health coverage.Socialism, education workers and Venezuela ALEC, started by a racist segregationist named Paul Weyrich, and other organizations funded by the Koch brothers, such as “Americans for Prosperity,” are responsible for legislative bills aimed at privatizing public education. These bills weaken unions under the false guise of “school choice.” In Oklahoma, an ALEC bill is presently being considered as a way to revoke certifications of teachers who participate in any future walkouts.In his recent State of the Union address, Trump advanced the misleading phrase “school choice.” In the same speech, he also vowed that the U.S. “would never become a socialist country.” Trump continues to try to build a xenophobic, racist “border” wall by undemocratic means and also to  destabilize and overturn the democratically elected revolutionary government of President Nicolás Maduro in Venezuela.One of the creators of SB 451, Senate Education Committee Chair Patricia Rucker, has written several editorials red baiting union leaders. Rucker, who is of Venezuelan descent, travels there regularly and openly supports the violent, anti-democratic opposition in that country. Another vocal supporter of the original SB 451, Eric Porterfield, made national news recently for spewing hate against the LGBTQ community on the House floor. Porterfield, a backwater Christian preacher, despises unions and, like Rucker, wants to replace public schools with “faith-based” education. The same ultra-right forces that have been threatened by socialism for well over a century are the very same ones now trying to break public sector unions and turn public services into profit-driven industries.  Education and public sector workers all around the globe have the same class enemy, which is also shared with President Maduro, a staunch union member and a bus driver by trade!No class war on education workers! No U.S. war on Venezuela! FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

You have to think two or three moves in advance because if you stop to think about it you can tense up and fall off.”The Climbing team practices climbs like these every Tuesday from 9-11 p.m.  These practices prepare the members for competitions they participate in throughout the year. The Climbing president, Jack Atzen, says the team competes every year with five to six members competing. When the climbing team arrives at a competition, they are given a route on a wall with holds that they have never seen before. Points are given to climbers who use the correct holds on the most difficult routes and totaled together, Hoy explained. The attendance at competitions can vary each time.“They can be pretty small,” Atzen said. “I’ve been to a competition where it was just them and the five of us. I’ve also been to one with ten other schools and a couple hundred people there.” Climbing is an individual sport and Hoy said that is in part why not many people know about climbing.“It’s one person, the rope and a wall,” Hoy said. “Some people might not find that as interesting as a team sport where people move and think like a unit.”Atzen said the lack of places to climb in Texas also plays a factor in the lack of recognition for the sport. “The main thing is that the biggest climbing communities are in Colorado or Utah where there is a lot of terrain,” he said. “It’s a cultural thing too, places that are more outdoorsy and are close to walls have a huge impact.”The Climbing team is less than five years old on TCU’s campus, but the passion for climbing has created unexpected friendships and hobbies. “I actually got into it by accident at the activities fair and thought it sounded cool,” Hoy said. “I didn’t climb in high school and once I tried it I quickly became obsessed with it.”Although Climbing is an individual sport, the members still support each other.“I probably wouldn’t be as into it as I am now if it weren’t for those people I met from climbing,” Azten said.To learn more about the Climbing team, email Jack Atzen or Madison Hoy at [email protected] and [email protected] or visit TCU Climbing on OrgSync.

The division bench comprised by Chief Justice Raghvendra Singh Chauhan and Justice B Vijaysen Reddy has issued notices to the Central Government, the State Government and to Twitter. The court has asked the Respondents to file their counter affidavits in the matter within four weeks, and explain why such tweets had not been removed. The Petitioner, Advocate Khaja Aijazuddin had earlier approached the Supreme Court seeking restraint on all websites in India from carrying “islamophobic” posts, that have the potential to hurt the sentiments of the Muslim community. He had stated that due to the “massive publicity” given to the members of the Tablighi Jamaat, who later tested Covid positive, the religious congregation was given a communal color, leading to widespread social media posts, linking the religion to the disease. He averred that such posts are contrary to the India laws, particularly the Indian Penal Code, which prohibits and penalizes “insulting the religion, hurting the feelings of the community and disturbing the communal harmony of the Country”. The same is also averred to be contrary to the Guidelines issued by the WHO on March 18, laying down that “religion shall not be attached with the pandemic”. In this backdrop, the Petitioner-advocate had prayed for a direction to the Centre and to the Telangana Police to require the social media platform Twitter to “stop the illegal trending attaching the religion to the pandemic disease”, for it is “highly unwarranted, illegal and unconstitutional”. Further, he had prayed that “online social media networks or sites be restrained from carrying any messages hurting or insulting the feelings of the particular community.” The Supreme Court however refused to intervene in the matter and allowed the Petitioner to withdraw the plea with the liberty to approach the Telangana High Court, pursuant to which the present petition was filed. The High Court has issued notices and has posted the matter for hearing after four weeks. Next Storylast_img read more

The Bench of Justice Alka Sarin was hearing a protection plea filed by Muslim Husband-Wife (Petitioners) who solemnized their marriage on 21st January 2021 as per Muslim rites and ceremonies. While the date of birth of petitioner No.1 (Husband) is 01st April 1984, the DOB of petitioner No.2 (Wife) is 10th January 2004. Arguments put forth The counsel for the petitioners cited the rulings of the Punjab & Haryana High Court to contend that in Muslim law puberty and majority are one and the same and that there is a presumption that a person attains majority at the age of 15 years. It was further contented that a Muslim boy or Muslim girl who has attained puberty is at liberty to marry any one he or she likes and the guardian has no right to interfere. It was also argued that under Muslim law, Puberty and Majority are one and the same and that there is a presumption that a person attains majority at the age of 15 years It was also stated that the life and liberty of the petitioners is in grave danger at the hands of respondent Nos.4 to 14 and they submitted a representation to the Senior Superintendent of Police, S.A.S. Nagar, Mohali (respondent No.2), however, no action was taken thereon. Lastly, it was prayed that directions be issued for deciding the said representation in a time-bound manner in accordance with law. Court’s observations The Court took note of the judgements cited on behalf of the petitioners and also the fact that the girl in the instant case i.e., petitioner No.2 is aged more than 17 years. The Court also observed that in the case of Yunus Khan vs. State of Haryana & Ors.’ [2014(3) RCR (Criminal) 518, wherein it was noted that the marriage of a Muslim girl is governed by the personal law of the Muslims. Referring to Article 195 from the book ‘Principles of Mohammedan Law by Sir Dinshah Fardunji Mulla’, the Court held, “The petitioner No.2 being over 17 years of age was competent to enter into a contract of marriage with a person of her choice.” It may be noted that as per Article 195 from the book ‘Principles of Mohammedan Law by Sir Dinshah Fardunji Mulla’, Every Mahomedan of sound mind, who has attained puberty, may enter into a contract of marriage and Puberty is presumed, in the absence of evidence, on completion of the age of fifteen year. The Court further noted, “The Court cannot shut its eyes to the fact that the apprehension of the petitioners needs to be addressed. Merely because the petitioners have got married against the wishes of their family members, they cannot possibly be deprived of the fundamental rights as envisaged in the Constitution of India.” Thus, in view of the above discussion, the petition was disposed of with a direction to the Senior Superintendent of Police, S.A.S. Nagar, Mohali (respondent No.2) to decide the representation of the petitioners dated 21.01.2021 and take necessary action as per law. It may be noted that in India, the legal age of marriage is 18 years for girls and 21 years for boys. This is governed by the Special Marriage Act, 1954, and the Prohibition of Child Marriage Act, 2006. However, under Muslim law, marriage or Nikah is a contract. The Muslim law recognize- the right of adults to marry by their own free will. The conditions for a valid Muslim marriage are: Both the individuals must profess Islam;Both should be of the age of puberty;There has to be an offer and acceptance and two witnesses must be present;Dower and Mehar; andAbsence of a prohibited degree of relationship. It is equally important to note that in the Hadiya Case (Shafin Jahan v. Asokan K.M. and ors.), the Supreme Court had observed that the Legitimacy Of an adult woman’s choice of marriage can’t be questioned. In the year 2019, the Apex Court had agreed to examine the question as to whether a muslim minor girl who attained puberty be allowed to live with a person of her choice.
