Should I buy these FTSE 100 shares in my ISA in May? I’m scouting UK share markets to find stocks to buy for my Stocks and Shares ISA in May. Here are three from the FTSE 100 that are about to update the market. Are they too good to miss?A UK share I already ownI already own shares in Barratt Developments (LSE: BDEV) in my Stocks and Shares ISA. I’m therefore looking forward to see the FTSE 100 housebuilder’s fresh trading numbers on Thursday, 8 May. News surrounding the British housing market continues to impress. The latest data from Nationwide shows average property prices rising at the fastest rate since 2004. I’m tipping trading conditions to remain strong for construction stocks like Barratt, 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…Low interest rates and government support for first-time buyers look here to stay. Meanwhile the number of new and existing homes entering the market should remain in short supply. Be warned, though, that homes demand might slow in the short-to-medium term once the government Covid-19 furlough scheme ends and Brexit disruption hits the UK economy.Another FTSE 100 stock to buy?FTSE 100 grocer WM Morrison Supermarkets (LSE: MRW) is due to reveal first-quarter trading numbers on Tuesday, 11 May. But I’m not tempted to buy this UK supermarket share for my ISA. The essential retailer is likely to have continued outperforming the broader retail sector as Covid-19 lockdowns have persisted. However, the outlook for Morrisons looks pretty shaky to me, and not just because pandemic restrictions are steadily easing.Britain’s established supermarket chains like this face an almighty fight to even stand still as competition in the industry hots up. This FTSE 100 share has lost 40% of its value over the past 10 years as competitive pressures have risen. There’s little sign that the supermarket will break out of this long-term downtrend either. That’s even though its sales in the white-hot online channel have exploded recently.Get ready for fizzy financialsCoca-Cola HBC (LSE: CCH) is another UK share I’ll be keeping a close eye on in May. The bottler of some of the world’s most popular soft drinks brands is due to release quarter one financials on Wednesday, 12 May. I also own this FTSE 100 stock in my ISA having bought in last November. It has risen 10% in value since then and I expect it to keep rising as Covid-19 lockdowns are steadily unwound, driving demand for its drinks in the ‘out of home’ channel.Latest financials in February showed trends pick up in the second half of 2020, while like-for-like revenues in four of its largest markets (Nigeria, Russia, Poland, and Ukraine) actually grew. It’s possible that Coca-Cola HBC could experience some fresh stress should Covid-19 infection rates soar again and lockdowns remain in place in some of its markets. But as a long-term investor I still think this is one of the best UK stocks to buy today. I think the unrivalled brand power of its products, allied with its top track record of innovation, gives me plenty to get excited about. See all posts by Royston Wild

Union Jack Club chooses IRIS Member Strategy The Union Jack Club, the private members’ club for non-commissioned military personnel of Her Majesty’s Armed Forces, has selected IRIS Member Strategy to help it manage its complex membership hierarchy, and thereby balance its philanthropic objectives and commercial aims.Based in the Waterloo area of London, the Club’ was established in 1904 with the aim of offering temporary accommodation and respite for servicemen in the capital.All serving men and women below commissioned rank are automatically full members of the Club, and pay no subscription. The club also has some 15,000 subscription members, who will have left the forces with a minimum of two years’ service and now pay a small annual subscription to enjoy continued use of the Club’s facilities at preferential rates.The club also welcomes temporary members from the UK and from other countries.Until now the Club had been operating using an Access database developed in-house over 20 years ago. It had, however, been using IRIS Payroll and this meant IRIS Member Strategy became a candidate for the new system.Having selected it, the Club purchased a five-user membership database solution with an application programming interface so that IRIS Member Strategy could be set up to ‘talk’ to the room-booking database. The system will also link with the Club’s third-party finance package.Soon, membership will be able to access and update their profiles at any time online, set up direct debits, and renew their subscription online.The Club also expects to use the tool to “branch out into fundraising”.www.ujclub.co.uk Howard Lake | 11 November 2010 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

The second most trusted group is religious leaders, with 5% trusting them most. Fewer than one in twenty most trust councillors (4%), MPs (3%), businesses (1%), think tanks (1%) or civil servants (1%) to speak up for the disadvantaged.It also reveals that the public believes charities are the best placed to speak to government on behalf of disadvantaged people, such as vulnerable adults and children, homeless people, unemployed jobseekers.The report also looked at use of charity services, finding that there has been an increase since 2014, with almost every household (98%) now reporting to have used a charity at some point, and five out of six (83%) having used a charity service in the last 12 months.

Those in the most deprived areas (48%) are more likely to rate their role as essential or very important in their lives and for their household than those in the least deprived areas (37%).Susan Pinkney, head of research at CAF, said:“At the heart of our communities are people working to make life better for the most vulnerable among us. Our research today shows that charity is not something that happens outside our everyday lives, but is woven into our enjoyment and ability to participate fully in our communities and the world around us.” Advertisement About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Students walk out as part of a national gun violence protest, March 14, Leesville Road High School, Raleigh, N.C.Raleigh, N.C. — A million students, from all ages and backgrounds, marched out of schools on March 14 in solidarity with the 17 victims of the mass school shooting in Parkland, Fla., on Feb. 15. They chanted: “When our students are under attack, what do we do? Stand up, fight back!”The student-led walkout was called by youth activists in Parkland, who requested solidarity actions from students and allies all across the U.S., to demand an end to violence in schools. The Parkland activists’ request was simple: That everyone walk out of classes at 10 a.m., be outside for 17 minutes to honor and uplift the 17 lives lost, and demand that all schools become a safe space for all students and teachers.This writer was an active organizer, with a small group of other students, in forming a walkout at our school, Leesville Road High School in Raleigh, N.C. During second period on March 14, we gathered in the main lobby of our school with a banner that read, “Make Our Schools Safe #endtheviolence,” and a bullhorn.Soon hundreds of students — Black, white, Latinx, Muslim — along with teachers, filled the halls, ready to march out of the school. Many were wearing orange, used to signify opposition to gun violence since 2013, after the death of Hadiya Pendleton, a 15-year-old African-American student in Chicago.Students held signs that read, “Stop the violence” and “No more silence.” After a march to the football field, students of color leading the way, a brief program began, with two seniors taking the bullhorn and making space for participants’ thoughts as students and as women of color.One 18-year-old student, Alia Hassan, said: “We stand in solidarity with Stoneman Douglas, Sandy Hook, Virginia Tech, University of Texas, Columbine, Red Lake. … The list goes on. This is the eleventh week of 2018, and we are 14 school shootings in. We are making the change, when our lawmakers have been oblivious to our safety.” She then uplifted the names of the 17 victims from the Parkland shooting, 14 of them students and three teachers, and called for a moment of silence.Another student said she and her friends participated in the walkout because “it’s our duty to make change in our society today.”To some students, a safe school means stricter gun control laws or outlawing the AR-15, a weapon most commonly used during mass school shootings.But to most students, safe schools mean more than gun control.Safe schools means arming our teachers, not with guns, but with better pay and more resources for the classroom. Safe schools means kicking police “resource officers” out of the schools and ending the harassment and criminalization of Black and Brown students. Safe schools means having all-gender restrooms for queer, trans and gender nonconforming students; and destroying the racist, sexist dress code that most schools have. Safe schools mean having more counselors and dismantling the school-to-prison pipeline.The fight for safety in schools does not end with the March 14 walkout. Students are demanding that lawmakers and adult allies start listening and taking action to make schools safe.On March 24, people from all over the country will be traveling to Washington, D.C., to participate in the “March for Our Lives” rally against gun violence. Organizers are asking for solidarity marches in different parts of the world. They are dedicating this moment to student-led activism, and will take to the streets to demand that safety becomes a priority.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

We report on three decades of repeat surveys of beached marine debris at two locations in the Scotia Sea, in the Southwest Atlantic sector of the Southern Ocean. Between October 1989 and March 2019 10,112 items of beached debris were recovered from Main Bay, Bird Island, South Georgia in the northern Scotia Sea. The total mass of items (data from 1996 onwards) was 101 kg. Plastic was the most commonly recovered item (97.5% by number; 89% by mass) with the remainder made up of fabric, glass, metal, paper and rubber. Mean mass per item was 0.01 kg and the rate of accumulation was 100 items km−1 month−1. Analyses showed an increase in the number of debris items recovered (5.7 per year) but a decline in mean mass per item, suggesting a trend towards more, smaller items of debris at Bird Island. At Signy Island, South Orkney Islands, located in the southern Scotia Sea and within the Antarctic Treaty area, debris items were collected from three beaches, during the austral summer only, between 1991 and 2019. In total 1304 items with a mass of 268 kg were recovered. Plastic items contributed 84% by number and 80% by mass, with the remainder made up of metal (6% by number; 14% by mass), rubber (4% by number; 3% by mass), fabric, glass and paper (<1% by number; 3% by mass). Mean mass per item was 0.2 kg and rate of accumulation was 3 items km−1 month−1. Accumulation rates were an order of magnitude higher on the western (windward) side of the island (13–17 items km−1 month−1) than the eastern side (1.5 items km−1 month−1). Analyses showed a slight decline in number and slight increase in mean mass of debris items over time at Signy Island. This study highlights the prevalence of anthropogenic marine debris (particularly plastic) in the Southern Ocean. It shows the importance of long-term monitoring efforts in attempting to catalogue marine debris and identify trends, and serves warning of the urgent need for a wider understanding of the extent of marine debris across the whole of the Southern Ocean.
