WWBB Just as the slogan What Would Jesus Do

first_imgWWBB? Just as the slogan “What Would Jesus Do?” gained popularity 20 years ago and has since been used by Christian teenagers, the Occupy movement, and anti-fracking protesters alike, investors have their own mantra for salvation: What Would Buffett Buy? It’s no wonder that Warren Buffett has become some kind of superhero to the investing masses. If you had invested $6,225 in one share of his holding company Berkshire Hathaway in September 1990, today you’d be sitting on $172,500… a 2,671% gain. Judging by Buffett’s results and his own vast fortune (he’s currently worth $53 billion), he must surely be equipped with a Spidey sense, X-ray vision, and omniscience, all wrapped in the body of an old man that kind of reminds us of George Burns in Oh, God!. So how does he do it? Buffett’s investment style has been strongly shaped by his mentor, Benjamin Graham (1894-1976), the father of security analysis and value investing, and author of two of the most famous investing books ever written. Buffett is not a true contrarian and emphatically stays away from industries he doesn’t understand, such as technology and gold. However, like contrarians, value investors search for stocks that are severely undervalued, believing that in the end Mr. Market will have to give those companies their due; Buffett’s bloodhound instinct in finding undervalued investments is legendary. So of course the question “What Would Buffett Buy?” is of the greatest interest to millions of wannabe millionaires. But what if you could know ahead of time which stock Warren Buffett was going to buy next? On August 15, the investing public found out through fund filings that Warren Buffett had bought more than $500 million worth of Suncor Energy Inc. (NYSE.SU), Canada’s largest integrated oil company and the world’s largest oil sands company. Suncor has done quite well since the end of June when Buffett bought it, climbing another 20% and adding another C$110 million to Berkshire Hathaway’s net worth. But Casey Energy subscribers were aware of Suncor long before Buffett started buying. We laid out all of the reasons to own the stock in January 2012; we talked about it not only in our newsletter, but also at the Casey conferences—more than a year before Buffett’s big purchase. Don’t bother buying Suncor now, though. The stock isn’t cheap anymore and is getting more expensive by the day, as the herd is following Buffett’s example. While we do have the utmost respect for him—if you’re the third-richest person in the world, you must be doing something right—right now we have one up on Warren Buffett again, just like we did in early January 2012. The company we recently highlighted in our Casey Energy Dividend newsletter pays a better dividend, has a better near-term growth profile, a higher revenue per barrel, less debt on the books, and a lower debt-to-cash ratio than Buffett’s bet in the oil sands. In fact, even though this company is also a big oil producer, it pays a dividend three times higher than what Buffett is getting on Suncor right now. Not only that, the company is in a prime position to profit from the voracious Chinese appetite for oil and an America that has realized that a safe source of oil is not just important for its economic growth, but also its national security. China has already demonstrated to the world that money is no object when it comes to buying quality oil assets—and there are fewer and fewer of those to go around. The United States is falling behind, and in order to catch up, it must begin to bid aggressively on these foreign assets. Simply put, this oil sands company will be able to make a lot of money by playing the two sides against each other and getting top dollar. With the “easy oil” starting to be tapped out and growing demand for crude oil around the world, the price of oil will inevitably begin to rise. And our pick stands to make the biggest gains. As Warren Buffett says, one should stick to investing in businesses one actually understands. We’ve been spending years analyzing the oil sector, and while Suncor has done a great job thus far, we think that our Casey Energy Dividends oil pick has the potential to deliver even higher returns to our shareholders. If Warren Buffett were to read our report, he’d be wondering why he doesn’t own this company. It fits his model perfectly: cheap valuation and a good, solid dividend. Once he figures it out, I think he’ll start buying the stock—but of course, our subscribers will already be well positioned. Try Casey Energy Dividends at half price today—with full money-back guarantee—and stay ahead not just of the curve and the herd, but of the Oracle of Omaha himself. Click here to get it now.

This is an interview you don’t want to miss. China to Invest $13 Billion in Oil and Gas Exploration This Year (Financial Post) We wrote about China in the last issue of Casey Energy Dividends. The country’s oil demand has increased over five times since 1980, and now accounts for 12% of the world’s total consumption. China is already the world’s fourth-largest producer, but only produces enough for 40% of its domestic needs. Based on those facts alone, the decision to invest in the country is a simple one. However, the problem is finding the right vehicle to do so. How Far Will Turkey Go to Get Israel’s Natural Gas? (International Business Times) It’s no secret that Turkey wants natural gas. Many experts agree that the country’s involvement in the current Syrian conflict stems from a pipeline dispute that occurred several years ago. Qatar originally wanted to build a pipeline from its facilities to Turkey; however, since Qatar shares its major gas field with Iran, the idea fell through. Iran, Iraq, and Syria then colluded on a deal to transport gas and bypass Turkey. This left Qatar and Turkey without a pipeline, Turkey without direct access to natural gas, and both countries without pipeline revenue. There are a lot of moving parts in the Middle East, but memories are definitely longer there than in other countries.last_img read more

A note from the editor Please consider making a v

first_imgA note from the editor:Please consider making a voluntary financial contribution to support the work of DNS and allow it to continue producing independent, carefully-researched news stories that focus on the lives and rights of disabled people and their user-led organisations. Please do not contribute if you cannot afford to do so, and please note that DNS is not a charity. It is run and owned by disabled journalist John Pring and has been from its launch in April 2009. Thank you for anything you can do to support the work of DNS… The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has admitted an “extraordinary” failure over nearly a decade to carry out any detailed calculations on how universal credit will affect different groups of disabled people.DWP has always admitted there would be winners and losers among disabled people as it gradually introduced its delayed and much-criticised new system, while it claims that any savings would be reinvested into supporting those it calls “the most severely disabled”.But it has repeatedly refused to provide clear details of how universal credit (UC) is likely to affect different groups of disabled people, particularly those currently receiving the various disability-related premiums.Disability News Service (DNS) has been trying for nearly 18 months to obtain calculations showing exactly DWP believes different groups of disabled people will be financially affected by the introduction of UC.When DWP failed to provide these figures, following a freedom of information request, DNS lodged a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).Now DWP has been forced to admit to the information commissioner that throughout the nine years since it announced its plans to replace six income-related benefits with the new UC, it has not once carried out and recorded any calculations to show how different groups of disabled people would be affected financially.DWP told ICO: “We do not hold this information because the variables involved are too numerous to enable us to conduct an analysis with case comparisons.“In addition, as the calculations and methodologies are different, no meaningful direct comparisons can be made between Universal Credit awards and awards of benefit from a legacy system.”A spokesperson for the Benefits and Work website, which provides advice and information on benefits, said: “It seems extraordinary that such basic calculations weren’t carried out and shared with representative organisations before such a fundamental change in benefits for disabled people was imposed.”Disabled People Against Cuts (DPAC) said DWP’s failure to make the calculations was either “callous and reckless or negligent”.And Disability Rights UK said it was “disingenuous for the DWP to say that it could not provide case comparisons”.Instead of providing DNS with the examples it requested, DWP sent ICO links to equality impact assessments it carried out in 2011, which include some figures showing the overall, generalised, predicted impact of UC.An equality impact assessment in November 2011 (PDF, page 13) suggested that 27 per cent of “disabled households” would gain by an average of about £33 a week under UC, while 27 per cent would lose by about £37 a week, although it claimed that DWP intended to “reinvest all savings from the disability reforms back into support for the most severely disabled”.Seven years later, in a report from January 2018, the Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) noted that “there will be winners and losers from changes in the way UC supports disabled people”.OBR also noted (main report, page 135) that the net cost to disabled people on incapacity benefits such as employment and support allowance in the transition to UC would reach £0.8 billion by 2020-21.In its decision notice on the complaint, ICO pointed out that DNS had argued that it would be “logical… that before embarking on such a major change [as the introduction of universal credit], the DWP would wish to have some understanding of how individuals and families might be affected”.DNS had also said it was “implausible that the DWP had not carried out any indicative case studies to see how a ‘typical’ claimant might be affected”, said ICO.DNS first asked DWP for information nearly 18 months ago, after its press office said the government had “simplified and rationalised the various, complex disability premiums that exist in the legacy system”, but was unable to say how this “rationalisation” would work and how disabled people would be impacted financially by the change to UC.DNS asked DWP to describe the exact financial impact universal credit would have on disabled people who would previously have received these premiums.DWP was asked to provide comparisons both for those making a new UC claim and for disabled people transferring across from legacy benefits such as employment and support allowance.But after DNS complained that DWP was refusing to release this information, ICO has now ruled that, “on the balance of probabilities”, DWP “holds no further information within the scope of the request”, although it said it had breached the Freedom of Information Act by failing to respond to the DNS request within 20 working days.The information commissioner, Elizabeth Denham, added: “It is not the role of the Commissioner to determine what type of information a public authority should (or should not) hold within the scope of an information request – only what information is as a matter of fact, held.“The Commissioner recognises that the DWP has put out, into the public domain, a great deal of information about its methodology for modelling the impacts of UC and that this has been highlighted to the complainant.“Having pressed the DWP on this point, the Commissioner is satisfied that the data being used in the Model is not of the level of granularity that the complainant is seeking.”  Bob Ellard, a member of DPAC’s national steering group, said: “Either the DWP did do these calculations and they are hiding it, or they didn’t do them at all.“In the first instance, the results must be bad, or they would have published them.“In which case the DWP have been negligent pressing ahead with a system they know will cause harm to disabled people“In the second instance, pressing ahead without knowing what the effects would be is sheer callous recklessness.“Callous and reckless or negligent. Take your pick. “What is certain is that we need an independent public inquiry into what has been going on at the DWP all the way through welfare reform.“We need people to sign the Justice for Jodey Whiting petition* which asks for that independent inquiry.”The Benefits and Work spokesperson said: “Welfare benefit advisers up and down the country use widely available benefit check software every day to provide ‘better-off’ calculations to clients. “You can input a set of circumstances to model a person’s entitlement to legacy benefits and then hit a single button to do a better-off calculation to look at the effect of universal credit.“The DWP could very easily have done this before universal credit was introduced.“It’s true that UC covers a myriad of individual circumstances too numerous to model in their entirety, but it would have been entirely possible and reasonable for an organisation with the data and resources of the DWP to broadly model some common scenarios using legacy benefits such as income-related ESA as a baseline, and then look at the same situation under UC.”DNS has been reporting concerns about the impact of UC on disabled people for nearly nine years.Inclusion London warned in October 2010 of “considerable concern” that UC would be a “means of reducing the amount people receive in benefits”, and said the following month that it could be used as a cover for cutting disability benefits.DPAC believes UC has now reached a point where it is “unable to adapt to claimants’ complex circumstances, and is forcing people with the least resources into further poverty, homelessness, and hunger”. It has called for UC to be scrapped because it has become a social security system “which not only does not offer security, but actively undermined people’s ability to cope with the hazards of life”.A DPAC report released last month contained “harrowing stories of people forced into debt, rent arrears, homelessness, crime, prostitution, hunger, people unable to afford fares to get to food banks, parents unable to get essentials for their babies, child poverty, worsening mental health, ex-service people considering suicide and even cases of actual suicide”.Disabled activists have repeatedly warned that UC is “toxic” and “rotten to the core”, with “soaring” rates of sanctions and foodbank use in areas where it has been introduced, and repeated warnings about its impact on disabled people.A DWP spokesperson declined to answer a series of questions about its past statements on universal credit because, he said, they “appear to be about clarifying aspects of [the DNS] Freedom of Information request to the Department”.*Sign the Jodey Whiting petition here.

Plant foods may transmit antibioticresistant superbugs to humans

first_imgMonika Wisniewska / ShutterstockThe Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimated that agriculture was responsible for 20% of the 2 million infections that are resistant to antibiotics that occur every year. While this estimate is based on infections and superbugs (so called because of their resistance to antibiotics) caused by the consumption of meat, there is a paucity of research into how big an impact plants have in transmitting these superbugs to humans.In a mouse study conducted by the USC researchers, it was discovered that superbugs were able to “hide” in the mice’s intestines after they had been fed lettuce contaminated with E. coli, an antibiotic-resistant bacteria.The researchers accurately mimicked the nature of a superbug infection caused by plants, which does not cause immediate symptoms or signs of illness. The bacteria causing superbug outbreaks can live inside the intestines for up to several years, only causing infection (like urinary infections, for example) when they travel outside of the intestines.After infecting lettuce with E. coli and feeding it to the mice, their fecal samples were analyzed over time.Lead author of the study Marlène Maeusli, PhD candidate at Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California, said: “Our findings highlight the importance of tackling foodborne antibiotic-resistance from a complete food chain perspective that includes plant-foods in addition to meat.” Related StoriesAntibiotic susceptibility pattern of Enterobacteriaceae found in GhanaLugdunin in the human nose has strong antimicrobial properties against S. aureusMultifaceted intervention for acute respiratory infection improves antibiotic-prescribingOne of the antibiotics tested in the study did not make the superbug better able to hide itself in the mouse intestines, but a second antibiotic led to stable gut colonization after ingestion. Colonization was also altered after the E. coli bacteria was consumed with food, along with consuming an antacid before ingesting the E. coli.In a separate study also presented at the annual meeting of the American Society for Microbiology, six probiotic Bacillus strains were found to be resistant to several types of antibiotics.With Bacillus strains often being used in probiotic products purporting to benefit the health of the gut, researcher and Masters student at CSU Fresno Emmanuel Flores felt it was important to determine whether “probiotic Bacillus are capable of transferring their own antibiotic resistance to bacteria and cause illness such as food poisoning.”Fresno’s study found that probiotic Bacillus does have the potential to transfer antibiotic resistance, but further tests are required to discover which types of bacteria this resistance can be transferred to.Marlène Maeusli explained the future steps in the investigations into plant foods and their role in transmitting superbugs to animals and humans. She said: “We continue to seek the plant characteristics and host factors that result in key microbial community shifts in the gut that put us at risk for colonization and those that prevent it. The environment and human health – in this context via agriculture and microbiomes – are inextricably linked.” Sources: Plants – Not Just Antibiotic-Fed Poultry and Livestock – May be Transmitting Superbugs to People.

New algorithm limits bias in machine learning

The content is provided for information purposes only. Provided by Santa Fe Institute Fairness needed in algorithmic decision-making, experts say Credit: CC0 Public Domaincenter_img It’s easy to assume that using algorithms for decision-making removes human bias from the equation. But researchers have found that machine learning can produce unfair determinations in certain contexts, such as hiring someone for a job. For example, if the data plugged into the algorithm suggest men are more productive than women, the machine is likely to “learn” that difference and favor male candidates over female ones, missing the bias of the input. And managers may fail to detect the machine’s discrimination, thinking that an automated decision is an inherently neutral one, resulting in unfair hiring practices.In a new paper published in the Proceedings of the 35th Conference on Machine Learning, SFI Postdoctoral Fellow Hajime Shimao and Junpei Komiyama, a research associate at the University of Tokyo, offer a way to ensure fairness in machine learning. They’ve devised an algorithm that imposes a fairness constraint that prevents bias.”So say the credit card approval rate of black and white [customers] cannot differ more than 20 percent. With this kind of constraint, our algorithm can take that and give the best prediction of satisfying the constraint,” Shimao says. “If you want the difference of 20 percent, tell that to our machine, and our machine can satisfy that constraint.”That ability to precisely calibrate the constraint allows companies to ensure they comply with federal non-discrimination laws, adds Komiyama. The team’s algorithm “enables us to strictly control the level of fairness required in these legal contexts,” Komiyama says.Correcting for bias involves a trade off, though, Shimao and Komiyama note in the study. Because the constraint can affect how the machine reads other aspects of the data, it can sacrifice some of the machine’s predictive power.Shimao says he would like to see businesses use the algorithm to help root out the hidden discrimination that may be lurking in their machine learning programs. “Our hope is that it’s something that can be used so that machines can be prevented from discrimination whenever necessary.” Citation: New algorithm limits bias in machine learning (2018, July 16) retrieved 18 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-07-algorithm-limits-bias-machine.html Machine learning—a form of artificial intelligence based on the idea that computers can learn from data and make determinations with little help from humans—has the potential to improve our lives in countless ways. From self-driving cars to mammogram scans that can read themselves, machine learning is transforming modern life.last_img read more
