The Ferro Alloy Resources (LSE:FAR) share price exploded this week. The mining stock saw a 150% surge in value following the latest company announcement. So what happened? And should I be adding the business to my portfolio? A leading vanadium producerFAR is a vanadium producer – a rare metal that’s a critical component for energy storage devices such as batteries. The company has only been public since 2019 and has continued to trade well below its IPO price of 64p. It was 9.5p a year ago. Even after the most recent surge, the FAR share price is still only trading at 25p. But is that all about to change?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…A few days ago, the firm provided an operational update for investors. It announced the successful completion of a second roasting oven within its vanadium plant, boosting its processing capacity by 80 tonnes per month. That’s a 500% increase compared to 2019.Unfortunately, the business was heavily disrupted by Covid-19. And its processing plant was taken off-line for a cumulative total of five months in 2020. Yet despite these interruptions, overall production for the year grew by 56% to 237 tonnes of vanadium.The management team hasn’t provided any guidance for full-year revenue. However, looking at the current price of vanadium today (which is around $18,000/tonne), I have estimated it will be somewhere in the region of $4.2m. That’s a 130% increase on 2019’s $1.8m. Furthermore, this revenue figure doesn’t include the additional 400 tonnes that could have been achieved had there not been any interruptions by the pandemic.Needless to say, 2021 could be an explosive year for the FAR share price.There are always risksThe vaccine rollout appears to be progressing well in the UK. However, in countries like Kazakhstan, where FAR operates, progress is much slower. The country began distributing vaccines in early February and expects to vaccinate six million people by the end of the year. However, that only represents around 25% of the population. Consequently, I believe the business will continue to suffer from operational disruptions throughout 2021 and potentially even 2022.Another risk to consider is the fact that the company has no pricing power. It sells vanadium to its customers at a price set by the market. Looking back at historical performance, the company reported a record $4.2m of revenue in 2018. However, in the following year, revenue dropped to $1.84m, taking the FAR share price down with it.What happened? Production continued as normal, but the price of vanadium collapsed by 75%. And with no other assets in its portfolio, total revenue took a big hit. While vanadium prices might be slowly rising today, they can always drop again in the future if demand falls or the industry becomes over-supplied.The FAR Share price: time to buy?The demand for vanadium is currently on the rise as many countries, including the UK, begin to upgrade their energy infrastructure. Part of the government’s Green Industrial Revolution involves installing many energy storage farms that use vanadium-flow batteries.This presents a fantastic opportunity for FAR and its share price to grow in the future. However, its current market capitalisation of £97m looks like it’s being propped up by significant investor expectations that may not be fulfilled. Therefore I’m not adding the stock to my portfolio today. But I will be keeping a close eye on it. Image source: Getty Images. Get the full details on this £5 stock now – while your report is free.

The Epilepsy Research Foundation and the Fund for Epilepsy have merged and the new charity, Epilepsy Research UK launched on 1 April.This is now the only national charity in the UK dedicated to epilepsy research and it aims to substantially increase the amount of funding to this area of medical research.The two charities will consolidate running costs and combine knowledge and expertise for the benefit of the research. Both have a long and successful track record in identifying and funding research. The Fund for Epilepsy made grants betweeen 1999 and 2006 for £1.2m and the Epilepsy Foundation has allocated more than £3m to research projects since it was set up in 1991.

En una reciente visita a La Habana, Cuba, la reportera de WW-MO Berta Joubert-Ceci, tuvo la oportunidad de conocer al Comandante de las FARC-EP Marco León Calarcá, miembro del equipo de Negociación de Paz. A lo largo de varias conferencias celebradas en esa ciudad, Joubert-Ceci pudo corroborar el amplio apoyo que estas negociaciones tienen de muchos sectores a nivel internacional.Dos importantes acontecimientos que involucran al movimiento guerrillero colombiano han ocurrido esta semana: el cese al fuego durante el período de elecciones presidenciales y el acuerdo parcial sobre el 3er punto en la agenda de negociaciones de paz entre el gobierno colombiano y las FARC-EP.Tregua guerrillera durante eleccionesDesde las montañas de Colombia se recibió el jueves 15 de mayo, un comunicado conjunto de los comandantes Nicolás Rodríguez del Ejército de Liberación Nacional y de Timoleón Jiménez, del Secretariado del Estado Mayor Central de las FARC–EP, anunciando un cese al fuego bilateral desde el 20 hasta el 28 de mayo.La acción, publicada el jueves 15 de mayo, ha respondido al pedido de varios sectores populares como se expone en el mensaje: “Hoy con ocasión del próximo certamen electoral a la Presidencia de la República, muchas voces se levantan, con diversidad de argumentos, solicitándonos una nueva declaración de cese el fuego, con el ánimo que el clima político electoral, se caracterice por la mayor ausencia de perturbaciones”. (eln-voces.com)Este cese cubre las acciones ofensivas de la guerrilla contra las fuerzas del estado y los objetivos económicos, no queriendo decir que no usará la fuerza si es necesario para defenderse si es atacada.Sucia campaña electoralLo que parece un simple comunicado, es realmente un oasis en medio de la asquerosa campaña electoral por la presidencia de la república. Aunque hay cinco contrincantes, Marta Lucía Ramirez del Partido Conservador; Clara López del Polo Democrático; Enrique Peñalosa de la Alianza Verde; Óscar Iván Zuluaga del Centro Democrático y el actual presidente, Juan Manuel Santos de Unidad Nacional, hasta la fecha y según los sondeos, se disputan el cargo los últimos dos.Y es entre estas dos candidaturas donde la campaña se ha reducido a vejámenes, acusaciones de corrupción y colaboración con el crimen, etc., brillando por su ausencia un debate sobre las verdaderas e inmensas necesidades del pueblo y las soluciones que darían a ellas de ganar cualquiera de los dos candidatos.Zuluaga es el candidato del ex presidente paramilitar Álvaro Uribe, de quien el actual Presidente Santos, fuera su Ministro de Defensa. Es preciso en este momento recordar que fue bajo la dirección de Santos que se dio el crimen en Sucumbíos, donde la Fuerza Aérea Colombiana, con ayuda de Estados Unidos, bombardeó el campamento de las FARC-EP asesinando al líder fariano Raúl Reyes.Zuluaga y Uribe están militantemente en contra de las actuales negociaciones de paz entre la insurgencia y el gobierno. Esto ha llegado al extremo de espiar al equipo de las FARC-EP en la Habana y por lo cual la Fiscalía ha sometido un caso en contra de un cercano colaborador de Zuluaga que también admitió el papel ilegal del Comando Sur de EUA en la escucha de las comunicaciones de las FARC.Sin embargo, Santos, más interesado ahora como presidente en salvaguardar los intereses comerciales con las compañías transnacionales, se ha comprometido con las Negociaciones de Paz entre las FARC-EP y el gobierno. No porque realmente quiera una paz con justicia social, sino porque le interesa la “paz de los sepulcros” para que puedan operar sin problemas las compañías extranjeras. Su interés real ha sido silenciar para siempre la guerrilla y desmovilizarla.Sin embargo, a pesar de que el presidente Santos habla de paz mientras arremete militarmente contra las fuerzas guerrilleras, el proceso de las negociaciones ha tomado una vida propia y ha forzado temas de interés nacional que nunca se habían debatido amplia y públicamente.Acuerdo parcial del 3er punto en la agendaAl celebrarse el 50º aniversario de las FARC-EP, se podría decir que este acuerdo parcial llega para celebrar su lucha de medio siglo. Aunque bajo las condiciones de las negociaciones que establecen que “nada está acordado hasta que todo esté acordado”, este logro parcial es realmente una batalla ganada en la guerra por la paz.Hay que recordar que las sugerencias y propuestas en estas negociaciones vienen no solo de las partes que se sientan en la mesa de la Habana, sino de las miles de personas que se comunican a través de asambleas celebradas en Colombia, por correos y a través de la página que las FARC-EP crearon para este propósito.Este punto es sobre la “Solución al problema de las drogas ilícitas” que tanto ha afectado a ese país, pero cuyas repercusiones van más allá de sus fronteras. Como un “elefante en medio del salón” está el papel de los EUA, como promotor del narcotráfico por ser, entre otras cuestiones, el país con el mayor número de consumidores y donde se encuentra gran cantidad de los bancos que “blanquean” el dinero del narcotráfico.Los 3 sub puntos son: 1. Programas de sustitución de cultivos de uso ilícito. Planes integrales de desarrollo con participación de las comunidades en el diseño, ejecución y evaluación de los programas de sustitución y recuperación ambiental de las áreas afectadas por dichos cultivos. 2. Programas de prevención del consumo y salud pública; y 3. Solución al fenómeno de producción y comercialización de narcóticos.Esto que al parecer son solo unos titulares, tienen un significado e impacto enormes. Directa e indirectamente involucra el desarrollo y propiedad de la tierra, lo que llega a la raíz misma de una de las causas principales del conflicto.Implica la mejora de las condiciones de vida del campesinado, su capacidad de producir e intercambiar legalmente sus productos bajo condiciones seguras, con métodos sanitarios, por vías transitables. Su derecho a la vida. De conseguir los insumos necesarios. De librarse de los tóxicos como el glifosato de la Monsanto, usado para erradicar las plantas de coca. Significa la no penalización del uso tradicional y cultural de la coca para las comunidades indígenas.También están envueltos en este punto los servicios de salud, la educación y prevención del uso de drogas y la penalización del paramilitarismo como principal narcotraficante, entre otros.Ninguna de estas exigencias se hubieran acordado de no haberse comenzado estas negociaciones.Ahora lo importante es que la comunidad internacional refuerce su apoyo y acompañamiento para que se continúen las negociaciones, se sigan incluyendo, sin penalidades por el estado, las voces populares y se exija la liberación de Simón Trinidad para que se incorpore a la mesa negociadora.Trinidad se ha destacado en el pasado como un inteligente y diestro negociador y desde el principio sus camaradas han pedido que se le incorpore a la mesa. Este se encuentra desde hace 10 años en la prisión de Florence en el estado de Colorado en EUA. Su “juicio” celebrado en Washington, DC, estuvo repleto de falsedades, siendo condenado por la retención de 3 estadounidenses con los cuales nunca ni siquiera tuvo contacto; fue condenado simplemente por su conexión con las FARC. Simón Trinidad es, junto a Mumia Abu Jamal, Oscar López Rivera, Leonard Peltier, los Cinco Cubanos, Rusell Shoatz y las/os 9 de MOVE, otro de las muchas y muchos prisioneros políticos de los Estados Unidos de América.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Share via Shortlink distressed propertiesReal Estate LoansRob VerroneVideo Tags Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink What’s the best option for a landlord who’s fallen behind on the mortgage?“The short answer is, you go to your ATM machine, you put in your code, you get some cash, and you pay your lender. That’s always the easiest solution,” Ironhound Management’s Robert Verrone told The Real Deal editor-in-chief Stuart Elliott for the latest edition of TRD Tips. But as he quickly explained, it’s rarely that easy.Verrone, one of the most experienced players in working out bad loans, left Wachovia Bank in 2009 to start his own business working out busted securitized loans.At the beginning of the pandemic, Verrone likened the workouts he was doing to “root canals on loans.” Now, he said, it’s more like “open-heart surgery.”Despite the challenges landlords face — dealing with some tenants who aren’t paying rent and others who seek loan forbearance — there are options. Check out the video above for all of Verrone’s top tips.
Written by November 29, 2018 /Sports News – National Soccer team fakes the death of a former player; dodges game FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailiStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — Representatives for an Irish soccer team have apologized after faking the death of one of its former players.Public broadcaster RTE reported that a representative of the team, Ballybrack FC, falsely told the Leinster Senior Football League that Fernando LaFuente — who was until recently on the squad — had perished in a “traffic accident” last week. The league subsequently postponed Ballybrack’s game on Saturday — and even held a moment of silence for LaFuente, who, it should be said, is very much alive.LaFuente, who now works for a software company, told RTE, “I was home yesterday after my work finished. I was playing some video games. … [My colleagues] started sending me all these news articles and mass media. And that’s how I found out I was dead.”Ballybrack apologized on Facebook, calling the announcement, “a gross error of judgement…made by a person who has been experiencing severe personal difficulties unbeknownst to any other members of the club.”The team added, “the person in question has been relieved of all footballing duties.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

In 2017, Phish called on Philadelphia bakery Federal Donuts to help them realize their long-ruminating vision for the Baker’s Dozen. For each of the band’s 13 donut flavor-themed performances at Madison Square Garden last summer, Federal Donuts provided actual, edible donuts to the first fans in the door, adding yet another layer of excitement to the already-historic residency.The band’s 2018 summer tour is currently well under way, and while fans have enjoyed some excellent performances, the Baker’s Dozen donuts have remained simply a fond memory, a relic of a truly unique and memorable summer of Phish. However, as the tour makes its way toward Camden, NJ next week, just outside Federal Donuts’ home base in the City of Brotherly Love, the bakery is cooking up a special surprise for its newfound Phish faithful. From August 6th through August 8th, Federal Donuts will offer a special “Baker’s Reprise” assortment box featuring “six different donuts celebrating the return of Phish to Camden.” The “Baker’s Reprise” box will include familiar Baker’s Dozen donut flavors like Glazed, Red Velvet, Lemon Poppy, and Maple, as well as a pair of new Phish-y flavors, “Fluffhead” (topped with marshmallow fluff) and “Fishman” (a blue donut with a red ring of icing on top).You can pre-order your “Baker’s Reprise” box from Federal Donuts now and skip the line when you go pick them up during Phish’s Camden run. Pre-orders will be available for pickup between 8 am and 4 pm (3 pm in South Philly) at the Federal Donuts location of your choice each day.For more information on Federal Donut’s special “Baker’s Reprise” assortment box celebrating Phish’s return to Camden next week, or to check out the mouth-watering photos of the donuts included in the limited-edition box, head over to the bakery’s website.[H/T Relix]

Despite continuing economic uncertainty, Harvard University raised $639 million in cash through fundraising efforts in fiscal year 2011, the third-highest total in the University’s history. These results reflect an increase of 7 percent from the $597 million in cash raised during the previous fiscal year.A number of Harvard Schools experienced an increase in their fundraising totals, including the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, Harvard Business School, and the Graduate School of Education. In addition, current-use gifts increased by 12 percent University-wide, from $248 million in FY10 to $277 million in FY11.“We are fortunate to have a dedicated community of alumni and friends who are unwavering in their support of the University,” said Tamara Elliott Rogers, vice president for alumni affairs and development. “They are loyal, they are passionate, and they are generous, and, for that, we are profoundly grateful.”Rogers added that, while Harvard continues to plan for an eventual University-wide capital campaign, no decisions have been finalized about the timing or details. “We continue to make progress in the planning process, which includes academic and financial planning and prioritization,” she noted.
