Notably, income investors. With that being the case, here are two unloved 5%-yielding FTSE 100 dividend stocks that I would buy right now.GlencoreShares in commodities trading giant Glencore (LSE: GLEN) have been under pressure over the past 12 months. Investors have been bailing out of the stock because the company has been caught up in bribery allegations. On top of this, some of Glencore’s operations around the world haven’t been performing as smoothly as management might have liked.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…While both of these problems are concerning, they’re just part and parcel of operating in the commodities business.The good news is Glencore knows its markets well because, in most commodities markets, the company is the largest buyer and seller.This is unlikely to change any time soon. To be a good commodities trader, you need a well-developed international network as well as economies of scale. There are only a handful of businesses that even come close to competing with Glencore’s size and reputation.This suggests Glencore is well-placed to continue to dominate the global commodities market. As such, now could be an excellent time to snap a share in this business at a discount valuation.It’s currently dealing at a price to earnings (P/E) ratio of 13.3 and supports a dividend yield of 6.2%.Another bonus is the fact Glencore’s is management is a substantial shareholder in the business. So other investors can rest safe in the knowledge that they’ll work to achieve the best outcome for all shareholders because they’ve got so much money riding on its success as well.CarnivalIt also appears shares in global cruise group Carnival (LSE: CCL) are suffering from short-term factors. Investors seem to be worried that the company’s earnings will slump in 2020 as two of Carnival’s vessels have been tied to coronavirus outbreaks.That may be the case, but from a long-term perspective, the fundamentals of the business are robust. The cruise industry still represents a tiny share of the global travel market and Carnival is trying to capitalise on this.Over the past decade, the company has invested billions of dollars in new ships and experiences for customers. And while earnings have been volatile from year to year, this investment has enabled the group’s earnings per share to increase at an average annual rate of 23% over the long run.This suggests now could be an excellent time to buy into the cruise company’s growth. At the time of writing, the stock is trading at a forward P/E of 8.8. It also supports a dividend yield of 5.1%. These metrics suggest the stock offers a wide margin of safety at current levels. Shareholders with a long-term perspective could be well rewarded.

iStock(NASHVILLE) — A man has been arrested after allegedly sending a rambling email to one of ABC News’ affiliate stations in Tennessee, threatening to go to the “state capital to blow someone’s brains out.”ABC Nashville affiliate WKRN-TV received a threatening email on Wednesday, authorities said, allegedly from Nathan Semans, who also expressed his displeasure toward President Donald Trump.“Look if you don’t run story I’m going to state capital to blow someone’s brain out,” the email read. “I don’t look good at the moment cause the tyranny of what trump did, the nature of this call is secret. You think I’m kidding trump belongs in the dumpster from a cool kid.“Knock it off I’m human. I’ll immediately leave this country on a double once my passport clears,” the email continued. “I’m sick of this nonsense and bologna hanging around that trumps the perfect American, hallelujah against trump I recommend you forward to the table of the news room or I join ISIS to seek revenge.”The news station flagged the email to the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security, and state troopers subsequently secured an arrest warrant to charge Semans with commission of act of terrorism, a felony.The troopers served the warrant Seman’s residence on Wednesday night and took him into custody without incident. He was being held at Humphreys County Jail on a $1 million bond as of Thursday, according to a press release from the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security.Semans did not have an attorney yet, according to the county clerk. He was still being processed, and a court date had not been scheduled, according to the office.Authorities searched the house after securing the premises, taking a cellphone and tablet for further analysis.No weapons were found, authorities said.“Thanks to an alert and forward thinking employee at News 2, we were able to investigate this threat and make our community and state safer,” Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security Commissioner Jeff Long said in a statement Thursday. “This is a textbook example of ‘see something, say something.’”The United States Secret Service will be following up with Semans, according to the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security.“When we work together for the common good of our community, we are all safer,” Tennessee Highway Patrol Col. Dereck Stewart said in a statement Thursday. “I am thankful that WKRN-TV contacted our department, for if we had not received this notification, then it is very possible that the narrative of this release could have been tragically worse.” Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

This review of the tectonic evolution of the Antarctic Peninsula during Mesozoic times highlights four main events; (1) Late Triassic-Late Jurassic extension, (2) Late Jurassic-Early Cretaceous dextral transpression, (3) Early Cretaceous extension and (4) mid-Cretaceous compression. Magmatism was virtually continuous during much of this period with the exception of possible breaks in the known record in Early Jurassic and Late Jurassic-Early Cretaceous times. The second of these breaks corresponded to the first compressional event. There was no apparent hiatus in the magmatic record during the mid-Cretaceous compressional event, although there was a significant change in the pattern of sedimentation in the Larsen basin on the eastern margin of the Weddell Sea at about that time. The tectonic evolution of the peninsula is compared to, and puts some constraints on, existing Weddell Sea models. The Late Triassic-Late Jurassic arc extension correlates with initial rifting in the Weddell Sea region during sinistral motion between East and West Gondwana. However, there is no known record of large-scale pre-Mid-Jurassic transcurrent deformation in the Antarctic Peninsula that would have been consistent with rotation of West Antarctic crustal blocks in the initial rifting period. The peninsula-wide Late Jurassic-Early Cretaceous compressional event may correlate with the major change in Gondwana plate motions from E-W to N-S (African reference frame) separation of East and West Gondwana. This change probably resulted in formation of an ocean-continent boundary along the northern margin of the Weddell Sea embayment and initial seafloor spreading. Geological data do not seem to support subduction of southwestern proto-Weddell Sea oceanic lithosphere beneath the eastern margin of the peninsula at that time. Cretaceous arc extension was coeval with the initial seafloor spreading phase in the Weddell Sea. Mid-Cretaceous arc compression, linked to a global increase in ocean floor spreading rates and a superplume event, correlates with a change from NE-SW to NW-SE spreading in the Weddell Sea.
Image: Oil and Gas Authority has given approval to the assignment of a 51% share in Saltfleetby Energy Limited’s interest in the Saltfleetby Field blocks of PEDL005 to Angus Energy Weald Basin No 3. Photo: courtesy of John R Perry/Pixabay. Angus Energy plc (AIM: ANGS) is pleased to announce that the Oil and Gas Authority has given its consent to the assignment of a 51% share in Saltfleetby Energy Limited’s interest in the Saltfleetby Field (the “Field”) blocks of PEDL005 to Angus Energy Weald Basin No 3 (“AWB”), a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. That Authority has also given consent to the appointment of AWB as Exploration and Production Operator.This is a great day for Angus and it enables us to disclose much of the hard work we have engaged in to reconnect this field. Some of the achievements to date are:National Grid plc (“NTS”) have already begun detailed design work for the reconnection facilities at the Theddlethorpe Entry Point and aiming to keep to our timetable.Angus has already identified most of the long lead items needed to compress and treat the gas to NTS pressure and specification and will make determination on pricing options in the coming weeks.We have mapped the pathway of the additional stretch of pipeline needed to extend the existing connection to Theddlethorpe on to the Entry Point. All of this additional pipeline will run underneath NTS owned land.We have engaged planning consultants to prepare Applications for Planning approval from North Lincolnshire County Council (“NLCC”) for putting additional equipment on site and laying pipeline extensions.We have engaged the services of Oilfield International to produce a Competent PersonsReport (“CPR”) on the Field. This we hope to have available during the early part of Q1.We have prepared an Abandonment Plan for two of the eight wells which, subject to regulatory approvals, we hope to execute within a month to six weeks. This reduces the overall liability on the Field.We have opened discussions with an oil major for a multi-year annual off-take arrangement. The Field’s first full year’s gross production we continue to expect to be between 17 million and 19 million therms based on last known and reported production rates of c. 50,750 therms per day in 2017 as adjusted for a steady twenty year decline curve.There are still quite a few hoops to get through, most particularly OGA approval of our Field Development Plan, EA, HSE and NLCC approval of changes to the site, assent of partners on this split Licence to the Licence transfer itself, and the everyday technical challenges themselves but, for the moment, we are forging ahead.George Lucan, Managing Director, writes:“This comes as fantastic news for the Company and opens up a pathway to real production, profits and cashflow without the exploration risk attendant on many other projects. This is gas right next door to one of the dozen or so entry points on the NTS system. This is gas producing on a steady and predictable decline curve for 20 years. This is gas to be pulled immediately from two wells which show the same or greater well head pressure than when they were shut in in 2017. Now we have to complete reconnection and start squeezing this gas into people’s homes and dividends into shareholders pockets.” National Grid plc (“NTS”) have already begun detailed design work for the reconnection facilities at the Theddlethorpe Entry Point Source: Company Press Release
View post tag: Navy More than 150 Sailors participated in a wreath laying ceremony on the USS Arizona Memorial June 4 to commemorate the 71st anniversary of the Battle of Midway. The Battle of Midway, considered the turning point of the Pacific during World War II, was fought over a period of three days starting June 4, 1942 when U.S. Navy strike forces prevented the Japanese from taking control of the Midway Islands.“The war started with the attack on Pearl Harbor and the sinking of USS Arizona and ended when the surrender documents were signed on the deck of USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay,” said Rear Admiral Frank Ponds, Commander of Navy Region Hawaii and Naval Surface Group Middle Pacific. “To me Missouri and Arizona are symbols of the triumph that is the American fighting spirit. The spirit that was able to overcome our heavy losses at Pearl Harbor and then gain victory from superior forces at the Battle of Midway.”The event focused on the historical importance of the Battle of Midway, which occurred nearly six months after the attack on Pearl Harbor.A relatively small fleet of U.S. forces defended against and defeated four carriers of the Japanese navy during the Battle of Midway, which resulted in one of the most significant losses in Japanese naval history.The keynote speaker for the ceremony was retired Navy Admiral Thomas Fargo, who previously served as Commander in Chief of the U.S. Pacific Fleet during the time the Midway Atoll was designated as the “Battle of Midway National Memorial.”“The success at the Battle of Midway was an emotional lift and a momentum shift, a morale boost that finally demonstrated that the American forces had what it took to indisputably win the war in the Pacific” said Fargo. “The legacy of our Midway veterans is embodied in the men and women who serve in our Armed Forces today.”Chief Logistics Specialist Ebony Pinnock marked the conclusion of the ceremony explaining what the significance of the traditional wreath laying.“This wreath, and the wreaths being presented around the world, is in honor of our Midway veterans,” said Pinnock. “We took a moment to remember and honor the spirit of the Midway victory in our Navy and our nation, we pause to honor all those who have served and continued to serve with honor, courage and commitment.”For some of the attending Sailors, this was their first experience aboard the USS Arizona Memorial.“I felt invigorated, I was trying not to cry,” said Seaman Colton Yount, assigned to USS Reuben James (FFG 57). “This was my first time being a part of a ceremony like that. To actually be there and to witness something like that it actually made me feel kind of proud to be a part of the Navy and this country and know I’m also playing a role in defending my country just like the people at the Battle of Midway.”[mappress]Press Release, June 6, 2013 Back to overview,Home naval-today Hawaii Sailors Commemorate Battle of Midway View post tag: Battle View post tag: Naval Training & Education View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Defence View post tag: Defense View post tag: Hawaii View post tag: Midway Share this article Hawaii Sailors Commemorate Battle of Midway June 6, 2013 View post tag: sailors View post tag: Commemorate
