But it’s also an incredibly challenging sport and I now want to see what else the world holds for me.”Williams, who has a two-year-old son, has spoken in the past of the responsibility she felt. Two years ago she said she wondered every day whether she was the right person to be in charge.A champion for gender diversity in F1, Williams appointed female drivers Susie Wolff — now running the Venturi Formula E team — and W Series champion Jamie Chadwick to development roles.Williams are the third most successful constructor in the sport’s history, with 114 wins and 16 titles, but their last championship was with Canadian Jacques Villeneuve in 1997.Founded in 1977 as Williams Grand Prix Engineering, the team were at their peak in the 1980s and 90s with champions Alan Jones, Keke Rosberg, Nelson Piquet, Nigel Mansell, Alain Prost, Damon Hill and Villeneuve.“We have been in this sport for more than four decades. We are incredibly proud of our track record and the legacy we leave behind,” said Claire Williams.“We have always been in it for the love of it, for the pure pleasure of going motor racing, so this is not a decision that we have taken lightly but after much reflection and as a family.” Previous articleIPL 2020: Delhi Capitals coach Ryan Harris impressed with how quickly the boys have regained rhythmNext articleICC should standardise one brand of ball in Tests says Younis Khan Kunal DhyaniSports Tech enthusiast, he reports on Sports Tech industry and writes on sports products.

Cliff D’Arcy | Monday, 15th February, 2021 | More on: BP ULVR Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Sharescenter_img See all posts by Cliff D’Arcy Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Cliffdarcy has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Unilever. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services, such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool, we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. As a value investor hunting cheap shares, I have three goals. First, as Warren Buffett suggests, “to buy a wonderful company at a fair price (and not a fair company at a wonderful price)”. Second, to invest at prices with potential for future capital gains. Third, to generate a rising passive income from cash dividends.Two cheap shares getting cheaperIn this scary world, I aim to invest in the cheap shares of ‘BBC companies’: Big, Beautiful and Cautious businesses. Big means FTSE 100 members, Beautiful means global leaders, and Cautious means reliable, familiar enterprises. The share prices of two leading BBC businesses keep falling, which should be helpful for me as a prospective buyer.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…BP: Bounce-back PotentialOver the last 30 days, the cheap shares of BP (LSE: BP) have been the FTSE 100’s worst performers. They are down almost a seventh (13.9%) in a month. Also, BP’s share price has almost halved over 12 months (crashing 44.8%) and three years (slumping 45.3%). In April 2019, the BP share price was above 570p. Today, it trades at under half this level, hovering around 269p. BP’s profits have been crushed by falling demand due to Covid-19. Also, as an old-economy company selling polluting fossil fuels, environmentally conscious investors shun BP stock.However, BP has been around since 1908 and I expect it to evolve to cope with the next 113 years. Furthermore, the Brent Crude oil price has recovered from below $16 on 22 April 2020 to $63.35. Today, the oil price is more than a tenth (10.7%) higher than it was a year ago. With BP generating enormous cash flows in this improved price environment, I think its cheap shares could rebound. After all, the share price has fallen 40p in a month, which looks like a good entry point to me. That’s why I’d happily buy BP stock today. Of course, if oil demand weakens and prices fall, BP will suffer, but that’s a risk I’d be willing to take. Meanwhile, I can collect chunky dividends in the form of a 5.6% dividend yield.Unilever: cheap shares?Like BP shares, the share price of Unilever (LSE: ULVR) has struggled over the past month. Having dropped by almost a tenth (9%), Unilever shares are #95 in the FTSE 100 performance ranking over the past 30 days. Unilever’s share price is also down 15% over one year, but is up 3.5% over three years and has risen more than a third (36.4%) over five years. Even after recent drops, I wouldn’t exactly call these cheap shares, but that’s because quality costs a little extra. And Unilever is a company I have grown to admire hugely over nearly 35 years as an investor.Why would I happily invest in Unilever today? First, the Anglo-Dutch giant is a world leader in selling fast-moving consumer goods. Every year, billions of us buy its brands for our kitchen and bathroom cupboards. With a market value of £104.1bn, Unilever is a global giant in the sales of cleansers and hygiene products, personal-care goods, and food and snacks. In 2020, Unilever’s share price peaked at 4,944p on 14 October. Four months later, it has dived by almost £10 to 3,979p. For me, that pushes Unilever into the ‘cheap shares’ bargain bin.Of course, its post-Covid performance could disappoint, but I trust its management team to deliver long term. And Unilever’s 3.7% dividend yield is the icing on the cake! Click here to claim your copy of this special investment report — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top Small-Cap Stock… free of charge!

“No Means No, The Word ‘No’ Does Not Need Any Further Explanation : Himachal Pradesh HC Denies Bail To Man Accused Of Raping Minor

first_imgNews Updates”No Means No, The Word ‘No’ Does Not Need Any Further Explanation : Himachal Pradesh HC Denies Bail To Man Accused Of Raping Minor Nupur Thapliyal5 May 2021 9:24 PMShare This – x”NO MEANS NO- The simplest of sentences have become the most difficult for some men to understand” observed the Himachal Pradesh High Court on Wednesday while rejecting the bail application filed by a man accused of raping a 17 year old minor. A single judge bench comprising of Justice Anoop Chitkara observed thus: “No does not mean yes, it does not mean that the girl is shy, it does not mean that the girl is asking a man to convince her, it does not mean that he has to keep pursuing her. The word NO doesn’t need any further explanation or justification. It ends there, and the man has to stop. Be that as it may, the victim, in this case, said no to the accused when he started touching her, but he continued. It nowhere implies consent, or zeal and desire to explore and feel each other in romantic love.” Suresh Kumar was in custody since 18th December last year in relation to an FIR registered against him under sec. 376 of IPC and sec. 4 of POCSO Act. On 17th December 2020, Kumar picked up the minor girl, who was also his friend, in his vehicle by offering to drop her to her house. However, he changed the way and started touching her inappropriately. While the girl said NO to him, he threatened the victim that if she started to cry, he will forced himself upon her. Kumar then asked if she would marry him to which the victim responded as a no. Thereafter, he undressed her and had sexual intercourse with her. On reaching home, the victim narrated the whole incident to her mother, based on which the FIR was registered against Kumar by the Police. It was the case of the accused that the victim in her sec. 164 CrPC statement had stated that she was a friend of the accused and that her taking life in his vehicle further proved that the friendship was cordial as a result of which sexual intercourse took place with “active consent and without any force on her by the accused.”. Looking at the facts of the case, the Court reasoned that the fact that the victim revealed the unfortunate incident to her mother “prima facie points towards the genuineness of the incident.””She would have kept it discreet because, as per her version, no one had noticed them. If the sexual act was with her will, she would not have told anyone about the same and tried to conceal the same. The victim voluntarily narrated the incident to her mother, prima facie points towards the genuineness of the incident. It would be correct to say that it was courageous for the victim girl to talk about the unfortunate incident to her mother and later come forward and report the same with the police.” The Court observed at the outset. Furthermore, making strong observation that a NO MEANS NO, the Bench went ahead to observe that despite the victim saying no to the accused, he did not stop. “When the curriculum does not include the proper sex education, the children raised by such societies fail the women time and again.” The Court observed at the outset. Denying the relief of bail to the accused, the Judge interestingly expressed special gratitude to his Law Clerk-cum-Research Assistant, Ms. Apoorva Maheshwari, for an “excellent perspective” in this case.

Growth rates and ages of crabeater seals, Lobodon carcinophagus Jacquinot and Pucheran

first_img1The internal growth rings of the teeth of the crabeater seal (Lobodon carcinophagus) are described and the annual pattern established. 2By examination of near term foetuses, recently weaned pups, half‐year‐old, one‐year‐old and older animals the probable pattern of dentine deposition in the first year is established. The neonatal line is conspicuous; a line marking the time of weaning is present and also a line which probably represents the pup moult. The rate of dentine deposition is discussed and it is suggested that lactation extends over about five weeks. 3Using ages determined from the growth rings in the canine teeth, an average growth curve for body length has been constructed and is compared with earlier estimates of the rate of growth in the first few years. 4Evidence is given which suggests that the average neonatal length is 45 in. The sizes subsequently attained by the two sexes are similar, though the largest females tend to be slightly larger than the largest males. The mean body length of animals over twelve years old is 89 $2–36 in. 5The question of the age at sexual maturity is re‐examined and it is concluded that in the female sexual maturity is usually attained at an age of a few months over two years. 6The age distribution of the two samples of crabeater seals is discussed. The oldest animals in the material were 19 years old on the basis of dentine rings.last_img read more

An improved continuous flow analysis system for high-resolution field measurements on ice cores

first_imgContinuous flow analysis (CFA) is a well-established method to obtain information about impurity contents in ice cores as indicators of past changes in the climate system. A section of an ice core is continuously melted on a melter head supplying a sample water flow which is analyzed online. This provides high depth and time resolution of the ice core records and very efficient sample decontamination as only the inner part of the ice sample is analyzed. Here we present an improved CFA system which has been totally redesigned in view of a significantly enhanced overall efficiency and flexibility, signal quality, compactness, and ease of use. These are critical requirements especially for operations of CFA during field campaigns, e.g., in Antarctica or Greenland. Furthermore,a novel device to measure the total air content in the ice was developed. Subsequently, the air bubbles are now extracted continuously from the sample water flow for subsequent gas measurements.last_img read more

GALLERY: Belgian Navy destroys WWII mine

first_imgImages: Belgian NavyBelgian Navy’s Tripartite-class minehunter M924 Primula detected what it classified as a potential mine in the Gootebank area, about 14 nautical miles off the coast, February 25.The Navy ship thereafter used its Seafox-I ROV (remotely operated vehicle) and identified the sonar contact as a German LMB mine from World War II, which was estimated to have about one ton of explosive charge.The ship’s diving team subsequently detonated the mine using explosive charges.The LMB was a parachute non-contact mine used by the German forces in two modules. At 1.000 kg of explosive charge, the LMB (Luftmine B) the Belgian Navy found is lighter than the LMA (Luftmine A) which carried 1500 kg of explosive charge.M924 Primula is one of six minesweepers of the Belgian Navy. It was launched on December 20, 1990 at the Mercantile-Belyard shipyard in Rupelmonde, Belgium and christened on June 12, 1991.
