Tesco launches website for used-car sales Tags: NULL SUPERMARKET chain Tesco yesterday launched an online used-car sales service, giving customers access to thousands of pre-checked vehicles at set prices. To avoid the pitfalls usually associated with buying a second-hand vehicle, all cars will undergo an RAC inspection and be provided with full service history and details of any damage. Tesco claims the service will offer cheaper prices than the traditional forecourt model by supplying the cars direct to customers, sourced from a variety of business and retail stock. Though customers won’t be able to test drive the car before purchase, the website includes videos of the vehicles being tested for performance and safety. The new service is chaired by Sir Trevor Chinn, former chair of both Kwik-Fit and the RAC. whatsapp KCS-content whatsapp Share More From Our Partners Astounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.org‘The Love Boat’ captain Gavin MacLeod dies at 90nypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgConnecticut man dies after crashing Harley into live bearnypost.comSidney Crosby, Alex Ovechkin are graying and frayingnypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comFeds seized 18 devices from Rudy Giuliani and his employees in April raidnypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comBill Gates reportedly hoped Jeffrey Epstein would help him win a Nobelnypost.com Show Comments ▼ Sunday 3 April 2011 10:32 pm

GlaxoSmithKline (LSE: GSK) has a market capitalisation of over £90 billion, making it one of the 10 largest companies listed on the London Stock Exchange. Since its founding in 2000, from the merger of Glaxo Wellcome and SmithKline Beecham, the company has been returning real value to its shareholders.GSK has been regularly paying dividends for years. In fact, its annual payment has consistently grown at a compounded annual growth rate of roughly 3.4% over the past 10 years. Last year, the pharmaceutical giant yielded 4.4% in dividends. I believe these characteristics make it ideal for income investors.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…In comparison, a good easy-access cash ISA may give you returns of 2%. I don’t know about you, but I know where I would invest my money.A strong business baseGSK’s business base is strong. Consider the fact that the company has succeeded in diversifying its revenue sources over the years. Apart from pharmaceuticals, GSK is into vaccines and healthcare consumer products, too.Moreover, what is interesting is the huge commitment that the company has been showing towards research and development (R&D). In fact, currently it is reinvesting much of its cash flow into that. GSK spends close to £4 billion on R&D every year to remain relevant in the industry and develop a competitive edge.Consequently, if there is a pharmaceutical company that will keep its place in the coming years, I believe it is GSK.Investment in GSK is for the long haulGSK has found itself in troubled waters in recent years. For the past five years, earnings per share (EPS) have been rapidly falling. The company has been investing heavily in R&D to update its pipeline of drugs.Last year the stock price delivered almost 30% in return. Its R&D investments are for the intermediate to long term, so only patient investors will gain I believe.Why I’m a buyerGSK is a solid income stock. The drug company currently has a stunning 4.4% dividend yield. For years its annual payout has been roughly 61% and as much as 89%. Hence, apart from its declining EPS concern, GSK easily makes my watchlist.But what about the declining EPS? The first cause is increasing competition. For example, in 2019 GSK had its Advair – a bronchodilator used to prevent symptoms of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease – challenged by the approval of a generic competitor in the U.S.Next is its heavy investment in building its products portfolio. In December 2018, for instance, it started the acquisition of Tesaro, an oncology-focused pharmaceutical firm, for $5.1 billion.Apart from these, the past years have actually been good for GSK. Therefore, the company’s falling EPS should not be a concern at all. And 4.4% is a lot better than 2%, don’t you think?

Image source: Getty Images. The FTSE 100’s recent market crash could persuade some investors to consider buying assets, such as gold and Bitcoin. Although they may outperform the FTSE 100 in the near term, buying large-cap shares today could enable you to capitalise on the index’s long-term recovery prospects.In fact, it’s always recovered from its various crises and bear markets to post new record highs. As such, now could be the right time to buy these two FTSE 100 stocks after their significant declines since the start of the year. They may offer long-term turnaround potential.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…VodafoneVodafone’s (LSE: VOD) share price has declined by 26% since the start of the year. That’s roughly in line with the FTSE 100’s performance over the same time period. As with many global businesses, the company’s operations are likely to be negatively impacted by coronavirus and the economic disruption it will inevitably cause.However, Vodafone’s performance prior to the coronavirus outbreak had been relatively strong. For example, in its final quarter 2019 trading update, the business reported improving performances in the UK and Spain. However, its churn rate of customers declined across Europe. But at the same time it also made progress in implementing strategies, such as increasing asset utilisation and simplifying pricing plans.In the long run, the company’s progress against its growth initiatives could improve its financial prospects. With its shares now having a dividend yield of around 7.7%, they seem to offer a wide margin of safety. As such, now could be a good time to buy a slice of the business. That’s because it offers long-term turnaround potential following what has been a highly challenging first quarter of 2020.RSAAnother FTSE 100 stock that could deliver improving performance after a decline since the start of 2020 is RSA (LSE: RSA). The insurance business has recorded a 30% drop in its shares in 2020. They now trade on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of just 8.8. This indicates they offer a wide margin of safety. They may also have significant scope to deliver an upward rerating over the coming years.RSA’s results for the 2019 financial year showed progress was made in its underwriting business. This helped to push returns, profits and dividends higher. It was also able to reposition parts of its UK and international operations, which could enhance their long-term prospects.Clearly, there’s scope for the company’s shares to come under further pressure in the near term. That is due to the ongoing risks facing the world economy. Over the long run, however, its solid strategy and the prospect of an improving outlook for the world economy could lead to improving investor sentiment towards the stock.With RSA appearing to offer good value for money, it may prove to be a strong performer in the coming years.

RSF_en News CubaAmericas September 12, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 González Pérez judicially harassed for more than 50 days October 15, 2020 Find out more October 12, 2018 Find out more Receive email alerts CubaAmericas RSF and Fundamedios welcome US asylum ruling in favor of Cuban journalist Serafin Moran Santiago May 6, 2020 Find out more to go further Help by sharing this information Journalist Oscar Mario González Pérez (photo) of the Grupo de Trabajo Decoro independent news agency has been detained for more than 50 days without knowing what is to become of him. Aged 61, he has been held in four different police stations since his arrest on 22 July in Havana. Reporters Without Borders again calls for his release. Reporters Without Borders voiced great concern today about the plight of journalist Oscar Mario González Pérez of the Grupo de Trabajo Decoro independent news agency, who is still awaiting trial more than 50 days after his arrest on 22 July in Havana.“González has been held in four different police stations since his arrest and still does not know what will become of him,” the press freedom organisation said. “Is this a new method the Cuban authorities are using to break a dissident? It is just as absurd as arrest without good reason and constitutes harassment, especially as the victim is a 61-year-old man in frail health.”Reporters Without Borders added: “We reiterate our call for the unconditional release of González and all the other dissidents who have been unjustly imprisoned.”González was arrested at part of a round-up of 33 dissidents on the eve of a planned protest outside the French embassy against the “normalisation” of relations between Cuba and the European Union. Twenty-four have since been released while three of the remaining nine have been charged under Law 88 of 15 March 1999, which claims to protect “Cuba’s national independence and economy. González is one of the three. The other two are lawyer René Gómez Manzano and political activist Julio César López. They face up to 20 years in prison.A Havana judge announced on 27 July that González was to be prosecuted but no date has even been set for a trial. After being detained initially at a National Revolutionary Police unit in the district of San Agustín, he has been held in three other police stations in the Havana districts of Marianao, La Lisa and 10 de Octubre. The Miami-based news agency Cubanet on 8 September quoted his wife, Mirtha Wong, as saying he has lost six kilos since his arrest and is having trouble sleeping. She was able to see him recently and give him some reading material.

wingedwolf/iStock(WASHINGTON) — House Democrats are demanding an investigation into the death of a migrant teen from the flu while in U.S. Customs and Border Protection custody after ProPublica released new video Thursday raising questions about the circumstances of the boy’s final moments.“I was absolutely horrified and sickened by the video,” Rep. Karen Bass, D-Calif., told ABC News Live. “I think it was negligent homicide,” Bass added.Carlos Gregorio Hernandez Vasquez, a 16-year-old from Guatemala, was found traveling alone by U.S. Border Patrol agents in May after crossing the U.S.-Mexico border near McAllen, Texas.A week later, Vasquez came down with a 103-degree fever and tested positive for the flu, according to an autopsy report obtained by ABC News. The report indicates he was prescribed Tamiflu the day before he died.The video appears to dispute CBP’s account of how the boy was found in his holding cell. CBP reported to the medical examiner that Vasquez was found during a routine welfare check. But the video, obtained from the Weslaco Police Department by ProPublica, shows his cellmate discovering the 16-year-old’s body and notifying a nearby official.“The investigation into the death of Carlos Gregorio Hernandez Vasquez is ongoing,” a CBP spokesperson said in a statement Thursday. “While we cannot discuss specific information or details of this investigation, we can tell you that the Department of Homeland Security and this agency are looking into all aspects of this case to ensure all procedures were followed.”In between medical checks Vasquez was seen vomiting while making several trips to the toilet in his cell, according to a review of surveillance video by the medical examiner.“The inconsistencies between Border Patrol’s official account and this video regarding the death of a migrant child is disturbing,” the House Homeland Security Committee said in a tweet Thursday. “We need answers from Border Patrol on why their account doesn’t match up with this video.”The Department of Homeland Security’s inspector general did not immediately respond to a request for comment on whether it was investigating the case.Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., chairman of the Committee on Homeland Security, said in a statement, “Not only did CBP hold Carlos longer than the legal limit and apparently fail to care for him while he was sick, the agency seems to have been untruthful with Congress and the public about the circumstances around his tragic death. This is inexcusable.”“The DHS Office of Inspector General should examine all video from Carlos’ time in custody, complete their investigation expeditiously, and release their findings as soon as possible,” he added.Vasquez was one of thousands of youths held at Border Patrol stations at the height of the record influx of migrant kids and families crossing the southern border in May. At the time, CBP said the average number of minors held in custody on any given day was around 20,000. In response to the increasing number of unauthorized migrants, CBP ramped up medical personnel staffing and redirected agents from ports of entry to apprehend and process those crossing illegally.The number of unauthorized crossings has declined since its peak in May, according to CBP data. After more than 11,000 in May, there were just 2,848 unaccompanied minors who crossed the southwest border in October.“The men and women of U.S. Customs and Border Protection are saddened by the tragic loss of this young man and our condolences are with his family,” acting CBP Commissioner John Sanders said in May. “CBP is committed to the health, safety and humane treatment of those in our custody.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.
