Over the past 12 months, the ITM Power (LSE: ITM) share price has jumped in value by more than 500%. After this performance, the stock appears to look expensive on the face of it, but the shares have increased five-fold in value after all. However, I believe the company is only just getting started. 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…Hydrogen energyTo understand why the stock has performed so well, it makes sense to look at ITM’s underlying fundamental business. The company is a manufacturer of polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) electrolysers, primarily used for hydrogen production. It sells these products to customers such as chemical group Linde, which recently acquired a 24MW electrolyser to be installed at the Leuna Chemical Complex in Germany. ITM Linde Electrolysis GmbH, a Linde and ITM Power joint venture, will build the electrolyser using ITM’s PEM technology. The electrolyser will produce green hydrogen to supply Linde’s industrial customers. This is just one of the many deals ITM has or is planning to sign. To meet the demand for these new products, the company has built the ITM Power Gigafactory, a high capacity, semi-automated PEM electrolyser manufacturing facility. Management believes this will be the first of many factories supplying these products. The size of ITM’s potential market is massive. The EU alone is targeting 40GW of green hydrogen production by 2030. That’s just the start. The current demand for so-called grey hydrogen produced from fossil fuels is currently 140GW per annum in Europe. Replacing this demand may lead to a surge in demand for products from companies such as ITM. ITM’s focus is green hydrogen, produced by green or renewable energy. And many analysts think scaling up the hydrogen industry will be fundamental in reducing global consumption of fossil fuels. The ITM Power share price is still cheapITM has built one 1GW Gigafactory and has enough cash to fund another 2GW facility. I think this could be just the start. The figures above show how significant the demand for green hydrogen will be, and this group has the first-mover advantage. It’s already producing and selling its PEM electrolysers. Costs are also expected to fall by nearly 40% over the next few years as it scales up production. However, the firm isn’t expected to report any profits for some time. That makes it difficult to value the ITM Power share price at this juncture. Still, the global hydrogen market size is expected to exceed $200bn by 2027. If ITM can grab just 1% of this market, the company could generate $2bn in sales. I don’t think that’s too ambitious over the long term. If the organisation can take this market share, its current market value of around £2.5bn looks far too cheap to me right now. As such, I think the ITM Power share price may be a great long-term play on the global green energy boom for risk-tolerant investors.last_img read more

Beirut mega-blast unleashes political tsunami

first_imgAug. 10 — An earthquake-size explosion in the port of Beirut on Aug. 4 killed 200, wounded 6,000 and left 300,000 people homeless in that densely populated city. It also unleashed a political tsunami that pulled in regional and imperialist powers as well as Lebanese political forces. Lebanese emergency workers look for victims after Beirut explosion, Aug. 4.The first indications were that the explosion occurred when a massive amount of ammonium nitrate, stored at the port since 2014, ignited and destroyed much of the city. The explosion also destroyed a nearby grain silo holding much of the country’s food.Demonstrators in Beirut blamed the government for overall corruption and negligence regarding the explosion and clashed with the army. This year the Lebanese people have faced economic collapse, the pandemic and now the explosion.Because Lebanon is the mass base of the liberation organization Hezbollah, the first reaction of U.S. and other imperialist powers and their reactionary Lebanese clients was to blame Hezbollah for the explosion — without any evidence. Hezbollah, which participates in the current Lebanese coalition government but has no authority in the Beirut port, immediately denied any role or responsibility in the explosion and then went about organizing relief for the population. Hezbollah made no immediate charges of responsibility, but called for an investigation, as did the Lebanese Communist Party.Over 2 million people, about a third of Lebanon’s 6 million inhabitants, dwell in or around Beirut. As of 2018, about 1.5 million Syrian and a half-million Palestinian refugees were living in Lebanon, which explains why Syrians made up about a quarter of those killed by the explosion.Representing the European Union, French President Emmanuel Macron toured Beirut Aug. 9, acting like a politician running for office. Ever since feudal France sent troops to participate in the Crusades, the French ruling class has intervened in the region around Lebanon. France was the controlling imperialist power in Lebanon and Syria before World War II. Imperialist aid has strings attachedEven now, while offering emergency aid that is desperately needed, Macron pressed for EU tutelage of Lebanon’s economy. Macron demanded “reforms” and said the aid  — collected through an international consortium that raised a quarter-billion dollars ($250,000,000) from imperialist countries and Gulf emirates — should be distributed through nongovernmental agencies. All imperialist aid has strings attached.The U.S., which pledged only $15 million to the emergency aid package, has sanctions against Lebanon. Washington attacks Lebanon because Hezbollah’s role in the Lebanese government aids the liberation organization’s ability to defend the region against imperialism and against Israeli expansion. Iran has already called upon the U.S. to lift its sanctions on embattled Lebanon.Both Macron and Trump issued statements calling on the Lebanese government to make concessions to the demonstrations. This itself raises questions about the direction of these protests, whatever the legitimate complaints of the people. Remember that Macron used clubs, rubber-coated bullets and tear gas against the Yellow Vest protests for a full year in 2019, and Trump recently sent federal agents in camouflage against Black Lives Matter protesters in Portland, Ore. If the big criminals Macron and Trump take the side of Lebanese protesters, something is wrong. U.S. imperialism, in particular, has no legitimate role to play in the region.Hezbollah leader Nasrallah on the crisisThe leader of Hezbollah, Hassan Nasrallah, adjusted a speech he was scheduled to give Aug. 7 on current developments so he could speak exclusively to the crisis caused by the explosion. He said since Hezbollah was being attacked by politicians and media who he knew were lying, he wanted to remove any doubts about Hezbollah’s role.“I confirm in a firm, categorical, absolute, final, total and definite way that Hezbollah has absolutely nothing in the port. There is no weapons warehouse, no missile stock, not a single rocket, a single rifle, a single grenade, a single bullet, (a single drop) of nitrate, there is nothing of all this, neither in a hangar nor outside a hangar, neither now nor in the past, there is nothing and there never has been anything.”Nasrallah brought up that the international media have already stopped blaming Hezbollah because they know it strains their credibility — everyone knows that Hezbollah has no responsibility for the port of Beirut.He called for solidarity: “The priority is compassion, cooperation and mutual aid, to overcome these days of pain, suffering and humanitarian crisis.”Not that Nasrallah would excuse the guilty: “I call on State officials, at all levels and in all authorities, to show the utmost seriousness and determination, whether to complete the investigation or to judge and blame, and chastise all those responsible for this tragedy.”And finally, the Hezbollah leader told his people that despite this tragedy, that the Hezbollah-led resistance “by its strength, its place in the country and in the region, is too large, too strong and too noble for it to be tainted by the slanders of certain oppressors, liars and falsifiers of the truth, who incite sectarian rivalry, and who encourage civil war. They have always worked at this and have always failed, and they will fail again.”For full speech, see tinyurl.com/y5nx7y66/.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Settling in U.S. Refugees in America

Linkedin The sharp drop is the result of executive actions by the Trump administration, which wants to limit the inflow of refugees to the U.S. The 45,000 admission cap was the lowest since the Refugee Act of 1980 was approved.The Trump administration’s policies toward refugees and those entering the country illegally, have been a key part of the debate over funding a border wall that led last month’s partial government shutdown.In late January, the Department of Homeland Security, which oversees the nation’s borders, announced new “migrant protection protocols,” under which the government is now returning some asylum seekers and migrants to Mexico while their case goes through U.S. immigration courts.In a span of 10 months in 2018, almost 150,000 Congolese people fled to neighboring countries.Historically, the numbers of refugees from Central America has never ranked high. Instead, refugees have come from war torn regions across the globe. The U.S. admits refugees from a range of countries, but last year most came from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Burma, Ukraine and Bhutan.Refugees from Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Syria, Venezuela, Yemen and Somalia are prohibited from entering the U.S. under the Trump administration’s travel ban.Department of State Office of Admissions – Refugee Processing Center Refugee Admissions by Region, fiscal year 1975 – Jan. 31, 2019The highest percentage of refugees come from the eastern regions of the DRC. From 1998-2003, the DRC was involved in an armed conflict that consumed the Great Lakes region of the country; 5 million people in the DRC died as a result of the fighting and humanitarian crisis. Violence continues to erupt sporadically.More than 780,000 Congolese refugees and asylum seekers are residing in other African countries, according to the U.N. The highest percentage of refugees come from the eastern regions of the DRC, where violence continues to erupt sporadically.Of the Congolese who have left their home country, 81 percent are being settled in camps, according to the U.N.Texas and RefugeesIn 2016, Texas was the leading state to take in refugees from the countries of Myanmar, Iraq, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Somalia.However, the situation and acceptance rates have been changing in recent years.Bikole Mulanda of the Democratic Republic of Congo responds to a question in an interview as his wife Fabiola Ongaobe Atonda holds their son Francois Rashidi Mulanda in her arms in the home they rent, Tuesday, Dec. 16, 2014, in Abilene, Texas. Mulanda, his wife and 6 children have been in America nearly two years. Texas has led the nation in refugee resettlements over the last four years and continues to attract others who move to the state on their own. (AP Photo/Tony Gutierrez)Houston Public Media reported in October that Texas welcomed 67 percent fewer refugees in 2018 than in 2017. The report said that some of the biggest drops were from Middle East and majority Muslim countries.Sobia Siddiqui is the communications coordinator for the Council on American-Islamic Relations Texas Chapter. She believes the cuts are discriminatory.“Our president ran his campaign and one of his strongest and most vocal points is that he called for a ban on all Muslims,” Siddiqui said.Source: Refugee Processing CenterThe most alarming number of the refugee situation is 25 – that is the number of Iraqis that were accepted into Texas this year.The Democratic Republic of Congo has been facing one of the most horrific humanitarian crisis of the last few years resulting in a total of four million people that have been displaced due to the violent conflict taking place in the country, according to the United Nations.Additionally, a food shortage has also threatened the lives of millions in the country. Figures from a U.N. report suggest that out of all the children in the world that are at risk of starvation, currently 1 in every 10 is living in the DRC. The DRC government denies this claim and said that the statistics are grossly exaggerated.The United States has outwardly stated their opposition of the government’s treatment toward the Congolese people and plans to resettle roughly 50,000 Congolese refugees from 2014 to 2019 through the US Refugee Admissions Program.Statistics provided by the Refugee Processing Center show that in the last two years alone, nearly 34,000 Congolese refugees have entered the US – of which about 40 percent were under 14 years old.This report was compiled last fall by students in Reporting 30204The main photo shows the Antelope Wells Port of Entry from the El Berrendo, Mexico, side of the border with southern New Mexico.

South Sudan : Journalist tortured and left for dead in Juba cemetery

first_img Receive email alerts Follow the news on South Sudan News A reporter for the Arabic-language daily Al-Maugif, Malek Bol was dumped by his kidnappers at Juba’s Gumba cemetery yesterday, three days after he went missing. Fellow journalists who recovered him from the cemetery said he was badly injured and bore the marks of torture. He is now in a Juba hospital. Colleagues said he had posted an article on social networks criticizing the crisis and the corruption that is undermining South Sudan’s economy. According to Radio Tamazuj, the article was headlined “Taste of the truth is bitter” and said that President Kiir and his family had “let people of South Sudan live in acute poverty.” Reuters quoted Al-Maugif editor Mathiang Cirilo as saying: “He was told by those who abducted him that he has abused the president on his social media.” “We condemn this act of cruelty with the utmost energy and wish Malek Bol a swift recovery,” said RSF. “The persecution of journalists has intensified in recent months in South Sudan. We are seeing the progressive destruction of civil society, with journalists among the leading targets. The international community must clearly condemn this behaviour and remind the South Sudanese authorities of their international obligations.” “We found him in a bad condition, beaten and burned,” one of his colleagues told the Sudan Tribune by telephone. He was burned and bruised in many places, while an arm and several ribs were broken. A relative, Bol Deng, told Eye Radio: “He was tortured and punitively head-shaved. He was also tortured with a buttstock.” Freelance journalist Isaac Vuni’s body was found just two weeks ago, four months after he was abducted, while Joseph Afandi was badly beaten and burned with plastic on 8 March. In each case, RSF issued a press release calling for an investigation, which did not materialize. South Sudan is ranked 140th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index, 15 places lower than its position in the 2015 Index. More information on South Sudan here.

Industry Impact: HUD to Address FHA Regulation

first_img  Print This Post Related Articles The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Industry Impact: HUD to Address FHA Regulation Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Dr. Ben Carson, Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, revealed that the department will address FHA perimeters, which will impact how the False Claims Act is invoked, during a segment on CNBC’s Squawk Box. Carson cited the need for “depository lenders to come back” as a key reason for this change.“Almost 50% of the people who originated loans that were originated by FHA were depository banks. That number is down to less than 15% because of the way people fled. We really looked at that and said ‘what can we do to fix this?’”“We revised the annual eligibility certifications, the loan limit certifications, and the defect taxonomy so that we even out things,” Secretary Carson revealed.Carson added that the Department of Justice and HUD following the financial crisis began going after many of the banks engaged in wrong practices. In their pursuit, however, Carson said many banks left the market.“They were so vigorous in their pursuit of these individuals they did get a lot of money, but they basically drove them away because, in many cases, the banks had been involved in some very minor, non-material defect in the process and were slammed with enormous fines and suspension,” Carson said. Carson said that nondepository banks helped fill the gaps following the Great Recession, but HUD wants to expand the credit pool for low-to-moderate income people.“The major mechanism for building wealth in this country is home ownership and doing it in a responsible—that’s they key—and this is all look at in terms of sustainability,” Carson said. “Not only do we want to put people in homes, but we want them to stay in those homes so they can accumulate that wealth.” Ed DeMarco, President of the Housing Policy Center, said HUD’s announcement is a “very positive step” for the FHA, and helps the agency move to a “fair and transparent enforcement regime.”“This set of enhancements to FHA’s compliance policies demonstrates to the industry that the legal team at HUD appreciates the need for lenders to operate with confidence in the FHA program. We commend the Department for these changes,” said Tom Wind, Housing Policy Council Chairman and Mortgage Division President for U.S. Bank.SitusAMC Managing Director Tim Rood discussed with DS News the impetus behind the trend Secretary Carson pointed to. “The False Claims Act was used rather casually during the Obama administration to brutally punish lenders for what often amounted to simply manufacturing errors in connection with FHA insured mortgages. As a result, banks fled the FHA program despite enjoying federal insurance on their deposits. The lenders who continued offering FHA mortgages often made the business case for raising rates to build reserves for future enforcement actions—raising costs for borrowers,” Rood said.According to Holland and Knight, the Department of Justice recovered $2.8 billion in settlements during Fiscal Year 2018. “There are a lot of people talking about affordable housing but this is something that will actually make a difference,” Carson underscored, going on to say that, “This doesn’t mean we’re not going to vigorously pursue fraud and people who do things intentionally, but we’re not going to torment people about nonmaterial, ineffectual things.”Secretary Carson’s interest in the False Claims Act goes back to when he first assumed his position. In 2017, SecretaryCarson testified before a House Financial Services Committee, where he was asked by Rep. Dave Trott (R-Michigan) if HUD was going to address the improper use of the False Claims Act to impose penalties against lenders for “defense in loan origination files on FHA loans.” “We are already addressing that problem …. And we’re committed to getting that resolved,” Carson said.When discussing the possibility of streamlined loan certifications for FHA eligibility, FHA Commissioner Brian Montgomery told the Wall Street Journal in May that, “It would be a step in the right direction telling the whole world that these are the parameters you have to stay within. I think there was a little too much gray before, and I think people seized upon that gray area.”“This change represents a responsible streamlining of HUD’s approach to fraudulent claims,” said Ed Delgado, President and CEO, Five Star Global. “I applaud the leadership displayed by Secretary Carson on this matter and look forward to positive benefits for both the industry and the American homeowner.” in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News About Author: Rachel Williams Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Subscribe Home / Daily Dose / Industry Impact: HUD to Address FHA Regulation About Author: Seth Welborn About Author: Mike Albanese Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Share Save Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.

Previous Article Next Article Firms urge govt to reject works council changesOn 21 Oct 2003 in Personnel Today The UK’s manufacturers have urged the Government to reject attempts by theEuropean Commission (EC) to amend the legislation on European Works Councils(EWCs) when it reviews the directive later this year. Responding to the DTI discussion paper on The UK Experience of EuropeanWorks Councils, the Engineering Employers’ Federation (EEF) argues that it istoo early a stage to assess the benefits to multinational companies from theirEWCs. Commenting on the commission’s forthcoming review, EEF deputy director ofemployment policy David Yeandle said: “Creating the necessary level oftrust and confidence for effective information and consultation to take placeis a lengthy process, particularly when it involves people from member stateswith very different employee relations systems, histories and cultures. “Since this is about to be made more complex by the EU’s enlargementand, there is a clear lack of enthusiasm for EWCs among both employers andemployee representatives, it is too early to consider changes to thisdirective,” he said. www.eef.org.uk Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more
