Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! The rising Zoom share priceThe initial surge in the Zoom share price started in April last year after the company announced its daily active users had risen by 50% from 200m to 300m in less than three weeks. Lockdown restrictions resulted in many offices being deserted as the majority of employees began working from home. So, the demand for reliable and scalable video communication technology skyrocketed within a matter of days, creating the perfect growth environment for the company.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…And by the end of January this year, total revenue in 2020 grew by 325% from $623m to over $2.65bn. Meanwhile, profits surged from $26m to a record-breaking $672m. Needless to say, this level of growth is incredible. So, seeing the Zoom share price take off isn’t a surprise.But over the past couple of months, the stock has produced some less than impressive returns. And yet, the company continues to report a stellar performance. In its Q1 earnings report for 2021, revenue grew once again by nearly 170% year-on-year. Meanwhile, its total number of customers increased by 354% to over 265,400. And its net dollar expansion rate is still higher than 130% for the eighth consecutive quarter. In other words, the company is getting more customers, while existing ones are increasing their spending.So why is the stock going down?The risks that lie aheadAs incredible as this growth has been, there is some uncertainty among investors that it will soon come to an end. And rightfully so, in my opinion. With the vaccine rollouts progressing relatively quickly in the US and UK, many employees will be returning to the office in the near future. Consequently, the need for video conferencing solutions will likely fall. And if its customers suddenly start cancelling their subscriptions, Zoom’s share price may take a substantial hit. What’s more, due to its impressive growth last year, the business’s market capitalisation increased phenomenally. Even today, after its recent decline, the company is still valued at a P/E ratio of around 130. Generally, a high valuation mixed with uncertainty is not a good combination and exposes investors to a high level of volatility.The bottom lineDespite the valid concerns surrounding Zoom’s future growth potential in a post-pandemic world, I don’t believe the company will slow down as much as others may think. Many businesses like Facebook have already announced their intentions to continue work-from-home policies even after the pandemic comes to an end.While I feel the return to the office is inevitable, I don’t believe the need for Zoom’s technology will disappear any time soon. Therefore, I think the company is still capable of continuing its enormous growth over the long term. And so, as an existing shareholder, the falling Zoom share price looks like a buying opportunity for my portfolio. With the pandemic forcing many people to work from home, the US stock, Zoom Video Communications (NASDAQ:ZM), saw its share price explode in 2020. In fact, it increased by more than 500% between January and November last year. But since then, it has fallen by nearly 40%. What’s causing this decline? And is this an opportunity for my portfolio to buy more at a lower price? Is the falling Zoom share price a buying opportunity? But its not the only stock i’m interested in right now.

Durham, N.C. — DeAndre Marquise Ballard, a 23-year-old North Carolina Central University student scheduled to graduate in May, went missing on the night of Sept. 17.Friends and family began questioning his whereabouts when he didn’t show up for class the next day. They began posting on social media, asking if the NCCU community had seen DeAndre.It was not until Sept. 21 that NCCU’s Chancellor Johnson O. Akinleye released an email saying DeAndre had “passed due to an incident.” The announcement left the entire student body in shock, wondering what had happened to DeAndre.His mother, Ernisha Ballard, remembers him as someone who “loved God. He loved his friends, and he loved his family.” (heraldsun.com, Sept. 24) A “young visionary.” DeAndre was a member of Bon Vivant, a fashion society on campus. He was also an active member of 100 Black Men. He was an athlete and he loved football.It wasn’t until Sept. 24, six days after he was killed that local news revealed DeAndre’s cause of death: He was shot to death by an armed guard at an off-campus housing complex, Campus Crossing.Though Campus Crossing has no official contractual ties to NCCU, the connection is clear. Campus Crossing benefits from the continuing overflow of NCCU students. Due to growing neoliberal policies in public education, the NCCU administration has increasingly diverted its student body from public and campus resources to multiple private firms whose sole concern is profit — not valuing the lives of Black students.Campus Crossing is an apartment complex located less than three miles from NCCU. A majority of residents at the complex attend NCCU, and NCCU even contracts for a transportation company to bus students to and from the housing complex. In the United States, higher education is run as a business and NCCU is no exception.In an era of rising tuition rates, debilitating loan debt and hidden costs built into students earning degrees, NCCU administrators run their campus like a profit-making business. In their cost-benefit analysis, it seems they have chosen to conceal the facts of DeAndre Ballard’s death. The truth is bad for NCCU’s bottom line; it is bad for Campus Crossing’s bottom line.DeAndre’s family has still received no answers from police and no support from NCCU. On Sept. 27, NCCU issued a second statement, this time labeling DeAndre’s homicide a “tragic” incident, refusing to even acknowledge his cause of death.Instead of offering support, NCCU is opting instead to try to distance itself from and skirt its responsibility to DeAndre Ballard, his family and the entire Black community. Instead of placing DeAndre Ballard’s killing within the larger context of police violence, NCCU is attempting to decontextualize and depoliticize it.Activists from Workers World Party and a broader coalition of organizations have organized in support of DeAndre, in support of the truth and against the neoliberalization of higher education that treats Black lives as just another expense to be itemized.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Organisation to go further News In recent years, the promising opportunities brought about by the digital transformation of journalism and the advent of social media have been profoundly challenged. The new realities of social media platforms have been marked by the spread of wide scale misinformation campaigns, organized cyber harassment and intimidation tactics, doxxing, censorship, private data use, fake activism, false news and growing concerns over emerging deep fake technology. This situation poses a threat to press freedom, journalism, and ultimately, the health of democracies worldwide.
Community News Pasadena Urges Residents to Respond to Census After Feds Cut Deadline Short by a Month Census count determines funding, congressional representation; Tornek says consequences of an undercount are ‘grave’ By BRIAN DAY Published on Thursday, August 6, 2020 | 4:14 pm Pasadena is beefing up its efforts to encourage residents to complete the 2020 Census following an announcement by federal officials that the deadline will be moved forward by a month.The Census Bureau revealed Monday that it planned to stop collecting census responses at the end of September, rather than the October deadline previously established, the Associated Press reported. The deadline was previously pushed back from July due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The move was made so the bureau can meet its year-end deadline to turn in figures used for the allocation of congressional seats, officials said.Pasadena Mayor Terry Tornek said the change was “very worrisome.”This year’s census has already seen several challenges, including controversy over a citizenship question federal officials tried, unsuccessfully, to add to the census.“We formed that committee early on and we’ve been working assiduously to try to overcome people’s fears,” the mayor said. “I thought we were doing well, and then the pandemic hit.”Social distancing practices and the distraction of the pandemic, along with its widespread repercussions, presented an additional challenge when it comes to getting a complete census count, he said.“We seem to be challenged at every twist and turn. And then along comes this announcement about trying to accelerate it,” Tornek said.While Pasadena’s census response rates were above the national, state and county averages at 65.7 percent, federal data shows, it was still well being the 71.7 percent rate seen during the previous census in 2010.“We’re still behind where we were 10 years ago at this time,” Tornek said. “It’s worrisome. The stuff keeps piling on.”“We’ve got to do better than that,” he said.The national census response rate as of Thursday was 63.1 percent, according to census data. California’s rate was 64.5 percent, Los Angeles County’s rate was 59.6 percent and the city of Los Angeles’s rate was 53 percent.Tornek said that while he can appreciate the need to meet the deadline for congressional apportionment, “Based on the results today, I don’t think it’s realistic to accelerate the process and I’m very worried about it.”The consequences of a community being undercounted in the census are “grave,” he said.In addition to political representation, the census helps determine where federal funds are sent.“This represents hundreds of millions of dollars to us. It’s a big deal,” Tornek said.City spokeswoman Lisa Derderian said the “once every 10-year civic responsibility” provides officials with data they will use to dole out “hundreds of millions of dollars for healthcare, housing, first responders, schools, and transportation (and) programs used to support our most vulnerable populations,” she said.And this census is a particularly crucial one, Derderian said. “For the first time in history, California is at risk of losing two seats in Congress due to potential undercounts, including one seat for Pasadena’s local representative.”Tornek said he planned to continue reaching out to residents and urging them to take the few minutes required to respond to the census questionnaire.Public outreach and education are the city’s main tools to try to make sure its residents are counted.“If we can alert people and inform them as to the consequences, and how important it is to their self-interest and their community, we should have enough time,” Tornek said.“But this doesn’t seem to make our job any easier,” he added. “This can’t be construed as good news.”Derderian said everyone must be counted in the census, “regardless of citizenship or immigration status.“The household information you provide is completely confidential and cannot be shared with landlords, law enforcement or any other government agency,” she said.For more information, or to get started filling out the census, which can be done in 60 languages, visit 2020census.gov or call (844) 330-2020. 18 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Community News Subscribe faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Donald CommunityPCC- COMMUNITYVirtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Your email address will not be published.
