This move was the latest chapter of a saga that has included a failed takeover bid and several public spats.Only 36 per cent of shareholders voted in favour of the company revealing details of its financing and profit share agreements. This includes Kirsh’s 29.5 per cent stake. “The spotlight is now firmly on the management who need to justify the trust shareholders have put in them. “We remain a committed investor and will continue to take the responsibility of being the company’s largest shareholder very seriously,” Kirsh’s company KiFin said afterwards. John Matthews, Minerva’s senior independent director, said: “Our priority remains delivery of full value for all shareholders from Minerva’s portfolio of high quality assets.

In fact, despite the stock market crash, the price has risen from 2p to the current level of 33p in 2020.Since my last article, it has continued to be among the top 20 most purchased shares on the Hargreaves Lansdown platform. The company is clearly on the radar of many investors and I like the stock too.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…But is it too expensive now? Well, I expect 2021 will be an amazing year for Greatland Gold shares and here’s why.ProjectsThe company is mining for gold in Australia and has several projects in the region. In fact, it has as many four in Western Australia and two in Tasmania.The Paterson project, which is one of the six, consists of two joint ventures including Havieron. Greatland Gold signed a farm-in agreement with Newcrest to explore this deposit in March 2019. The Havieron site has been a roaring success and is the miner’s jewel in the crown.Agreements boost Greatland Gold sharesFollowing the success of Havieron, in November GGP signed additional agreements with Newcrest to explore the deposit further. I believe this site demonstrates the potential for a large mining operation.I also think Newcrest knows it’s onto a winner with Havieron. In addition to existing funding commitments, it has offered Greatland a $50m loan. The debt facility will be used for drilling costs up to the completion of a feasibility study. Mining is a costly business but Greatland can rest assured that it has secured funding to accelerate the exploration of Havieron in the short term. I believe further announcements of drilling success will truly be transformational for Greatland Gold shares.Continue drillingWhile drilling at Havieron has generated fantastic results, the company can’t put all of its eggs in one basket. Within the Paterson project, it also has the Juri joint venture with Newcrest to explore the Black Hills and Paterson Range East sites.Upon initial exploration of these two sites, Greatland has announced the results look promising. The company has confirmed the regions, especially Paterson Range East, have a similar geophysical signature to Havieron. I expect positive results to come from these deposits in 2021.Change at the topThe company recently announced that Shaun Day will be replacing current CEO Gervaise Heddle in February 2021. An accountant with 20 years of experience in mining and infrastructure, Day is CFO of AIM-listed Salt Lake Potash.While Heddle has been instrumental in Greatland Gold’s success, I think the appointment of a new CEO with a wealth of large-scale mining experience is vital, especially when Havieron has the potential for commercial production.OutlookSo would I buy Greatland Gold shares? Yes. The company is a risky prospect as it’s still loss-making, but I think there’s so much potential that will come to fruition in 2021 and generate stellar share price gains.Investment bank Berenberg recently upgraded its price target from 22p to the 33p. The shares are already trading at this new level, but I don’t think it reflects Greatland Gold’s full potential. I believe the price could double in 2021 upon further drilling success.

first_imgBoston attendees stand next to image of Imam Siddique Abdullah Hasan at a commemorationof the Lucasville Uprising.Former prisoners, prison abolitionists and supporters gathered in Boston on July 28 to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Lucasville Uprising, which took place in 1993 at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility.The meeting began with a screening of the documentary “Shadow of Lucasville,” followed by speakers and discussion chaired by Belladonna Ashman of the Trans/Nonbinary Caucus of WWP-Boston and Bobby T of United Steelworkers Local 8751, Boston School Bus Drivers. Meeting sponsors included the Jericho Movement, Chuck Turner, USW Local 8751, TOUCH 106.1 Radio/TV and WWP-Boston.Former Boston City Council member and former prisoner Chuck Turner spoke about the need for the progressive movement to defend the incarcerated, who are used as a captive source of labor.Former political prisoner and Jericho Movement member Kazi Toure spoke about his experience in dozens of prisons across the country, highlighting the brutal conditions as a constant in all of them. In his talk and in the following discussion, Toure and audience members highlighted that these prison conditions are being exported to workplaces all across the country and that the U.S. is in many respects nothing more than an open-air prison.Imam Siddique Abdullah Hasan, one of five men sentenced to death for their proported role in leading the Lucasville Uprising, was scheduled to call in to the meeting. When the call did not come, attendees learned from contacts in Ohio that the Imam had been placed in solitary confinement two days before that. The disappointed attendees recognized this as a deliberate action on the part of the prison administration to censor the truth about conditions in the prisons.Activists subsequently learned that the Imam has been charged with violations related to organizing prison work stoppages.For updates relating to solidarity actions for the Imam, visit www.facebook.com/events/257447445036637.

first_img11:30 a.m.: WHO announces effort to accelerate vaccinesDr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the director general of the World Health Organization, announced that his agency was launching a new effort to accelerate the fight against the virus. Tedros said in a briefing that the effort will bring together health groups and private sector partners to find a vaccine and ensure the public has access to it. “This is a landmark collaboration to accelerate the development, production and equitable distribution of vaccines, diagnostics, and therapeutics for COVID-19,” the director general said.The partnership for the ACT Accelerator includes the help of French President Emmanuel Macron, EU President Ursula von der Leyen and Bill and Melinda Gates.“We are facing a common threat, which we can only defeat with a common approach,” Tedros said.11:08 a.m.: US death toll surpasses 50KThe death toll in the United States has surpassed 50,000, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.There are now at least 50,031 deaths in the country, the data shows.The grim milestone was reached Friday morning, five days after the number of fatalities hit 40,000.The U.S. has the highest death toll in the world and the most number of cases.10:46 a..m: Stay-at-home order extended in MichiganMichigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has extended the state’s stay-at-home order through May 15.The order was previously set to end on April 30.The new order will require people to wear homemade, non-medical face coverings when entering enclosed public spaces, such as grocery stores, according to a statement from Whitmer’s office. People will not face criminal penalties for going out without a mask, her office said.Some restrictions will also be eased. Nurseries, landscaping and lawn-service companies can reopen, but social distancing must be maintained, according to Whitmer’s office. Retailers that do not sell necessary supplies will also be allowed to reopen for curbside pick-up and for delivery.Motorized boating and golf will be allowed, but using golf carts is still prohibited. Individuals will also be allowed to travel between their residences, but her office noted that “such travel during the epidemic is strongly discouraged.”“With new COVID-19 cases leveling off, however, we are lifting some of the restrictions put in place in the previous order,” Whitmer said. “I want to be crystal clear: the overarching message today is still the same. We must all do our part by staying home and staying safe as much as possible.”10:31 a.m.: NYC mayor says all COVID metrics are downNew York City Mayor Bill de Blasio on Friday offered what he called “just plain good news” on the virus’s spread in the city.De Blasio said all indicators — hospitalizations, ICU admittances and percent of the population that tested positive — were all down.Daily hospitalizations of people with suspected COVID-19 went down from 227 to 176, which the mayor called a “serious decline.” The number of people admitted to ICUs on a daily basis decreased from 796 to 786 and the citywide percentage of people who tested positive went from 32% to 30%.De Blasio also spoke about the disproportionate ways the virus appears to affect communities of color. His Equity Action Plan includes active testing sites in those communities and advertisements that are broadcasted in 15 languages in 88 zip codes.He said even after the pandemic ends, New Yorkers can never “look away” from these disparities.10:03 a.m.: NY hydroxy trials deliver inconclusive resultsTrials of a malaria drug that was touted by President Donald Trump for treating COVID-19 delivered inconclusive results in New York, according to the head of the research team.There was not a “statistically significant difference” between patients who took hydroxychloroquine and those who did not, David Holtgrave, dean of the University at Albany School of Public Health, told ABC News.During CNN’s coronavirus town hall on Thursday night, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo backed that up, saying the drug “was not seen as a positive, not seen as a negative.” 8:59 a.m.: South Korea reports no deaths, only six new casesFor the first time in a month, South Korea has reported no new deaths from COVID-19 in the last 24 hours, according to the Center for Disease Control (KCDC). There were also only six new cases as of Friday, the KCDC reported. The total number of confirmed cases in South Korea is at least 10,708, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.7:16 a.m.: Lysol company says don’t ingest its products to fight coronavirusReckitt Benckiser, the company that makes Lysol, said you should not inject or ingest any of its products as a potential treatment for the coronavirus. This statement follows a press briefing Thursday in which President Donald Trump seemed to muse that UV light and disinfectants could maybe combat COVID-19.“We must be clear that under no circumstance should our disinfectant products be administered into the human body (through injection, ingestion or any other route),” the company said in a statement.RB, without specifically mentioning Trump or the press briefing, said it felt compelled to put out a statement because of “recent speculation and social media activity … whether internal administration of disinfectants may be appropriate for investigation or use as a treatment for coronavirus.”“Then I see the disinfectant where it knocks it out in a minute, one minute,” Trump said during Thursday’s White House Coronavirus Task Force briefing. “And is there a way we can do something like that, by injection inside or almost a cleaning because you see it gets in the lungs and it does a tremendous number on the lungs so it would be interesting to check that.”His comments came after a Department of Homeland Security official said their research found that ultraviolet rays and disinfectants like bleach and isopropyl alcohol work well against the virus.6:15 a.m.: Georgia governor defends opening some nonessential businessesGeorgia Gov. Brian Kemp defended his controversial plan to open some nonessential businesses on Friday, despite criticism from President Donald Trump.Kemp said he’s followed federal safety guidelines and that now is the time to start reopening the state’s economy.“Now, with favorable data and approval from state health officials, we are taking another measured step forward by opening shuttered businesses for limited operations,” Kemp tweeted Thursday night. “I know these hardworking Georgians will prioritize the safety of their employees and customers. Together, we will weather this storm and emerge stronger than ever.”Trump said Kemp went too far in opening some of the state’s businesses.“I want him to do what he thinks is right,” Trump said during a press briefing Wednesday. “But … I think (opening) spas and beauty salons and tattoo parlors and barbershops in Phase One … it’s just too soon.”In addition, Kemp released new requirements through executive order, detailing how various businesses can begin reopening again starting on Friday and Monday. Some requirements include that restaurants must post signs saying no one with symptoms of COVID-19 can enter.Georgia has at least 21,883 diagnosed cases of COVID-19, with at least 881 deaths.3:30 a.m.: China reports no new COVID-19 deaths for ninth straight dayChina reported no new deaths from the novel coronavirus for the ninth consecutive day on Friday.There were also only six new cases of COVID-19, two of which were brought into the country from overseas, according to China’s National Health Commission.Since the virus was first detected in the city of Wuhan back in December, the Chinese mainland has reported 82,804 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 4,632 deaths.Hospitals were still treating 915 patients with confirmed cases as of Friday morning, including 57 who are listed in serious condition, according to the National Health Commission.

The actual numbers are believed to be much higher due to testing shortages, many unreported cases and suspicions that some governments are hiding the scope of their nations’ outbreaks.Since the first cases were detected in China in December, the United States has become the worst-affected country, with more than 869,000 diagnosed cases and at least 50,031 deaths.
