I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool.center_img Artificial intelligence is going to become an omnipotent part of our world and everyday life. Most experts believe that the global market for A.I. will be worth $3.9 trillion by 2022 and as much as $15.7 trillion by 2030. But I sincerely believe that these predictions wholly underestimate the true economic potential of A.I. by a factor of 10. The potential applications of the global A.I. economy are at least three times greater than those of the internet economy, and today I would estimate that internet economy to be worth $50 trillion.To gain long-term exposure to the entirety of this growth requires some lateral thinking. A.I. is still some years away from being the ‘platform’ that the internet represents. The true A.I. revolution will come once that companies and entrepreneurs can ‘plug in’ to a user-friendly interface that enables them to easily derive the full benefits of A.I.. In early 2019 IBM made Watson open source in the cloud, which history will likely view as a significant milestone, but there are still many components of A.I. that are yet to be mastered.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…For artificial intelligence to work, it must first be able to capture huge amounts of data from the real world, often in real time. According to the National Science Foundation, the Internet of Things (IoT) is on track to connect 50 billion “smart” things in 2020 and 1 trillion sensors soon after. 5G technologies mean that captured information can now be processed in real time for A.I. to make a decision before taking an action (often a physical action). For this, the world is also going to need a huge increase in the abundance of smart robotics.Focusing on these ‘component parts’ of A.I. is how investors can find good long-term exposure. Blue Prism Group provides exposure to the growth in robotic process automation software for enterprises. And there are ETFs such as the WisdomTree Artificial Intelligence UCITS ETF that promise direct exposure to A.I. enablers. But to create long-term exposure to the entirety of globally omnipotent A.I., one must look to invest not in just in the component parts of A.I., but in the electronic components that these parts will rely on.Unfortunately for UK-focused investors, opportunities are very limited. According to the McKinsey Global Institute, A.I. is expected to provide a 22% boost to the British economy by 2029. But one would not know that if you looked at the UK stock markets… To find stocks whose prospects will correlate with the entirety of A.I., one has to turn to the US markets.Micron Technologies (NASDAQ: MU) is a producer of computer memory and computer data storage. I have held a long position in this stock for quite some time, and I expect to benefit from long-term equity growth. Equity growth is the only play available because, like many in the semiconductor industry, Micron has never paid a dividend.Over 12 months Micron has had a wide read more

Financial crisis threatens Church of England’s strategic plans, according to…

first_imgFinancial crisis threatens Church of England’s strategic plans, according to internal document Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET [Church Times] Declining income, accelerated by the pandemic, means that dioceses are facing “indiscriminate cuts” to clergy posts, undermining the Church of England’s attempts at strategic reform.New assistant curates, recruited in the recent push for vocations, could struggle to find incumbencies, an internal document suggests.Details of the scale of the challenge are contained in a discussion paper circulated to all bishops and diocesan secretaries in the middle of last month. It confirms that the Church of England’s income fell 8.1% in the year to November 2020. It projects a further fall of 10% for 2021, calculated before the latest lockdown was announced. Expected savings on expenditure for 2021 are currently 3% to 4%. These overall figures disguise a large variation between dioceses.The document, “Perspectives on money, people and buildings,” seen by the Church Times on Monday, has not been made public, despite confusion from parish priests and others about media reports on its contents, and a declaration at the start: “Honest sharing of information on how those resources of money, people and buildings are being stewarded for greatest impact is vital.”Read the full story, including the discussion paper, here.

Appellate Court Dismisses Company’s Constitutional Challenge to CFPB’s Authority

The judges who rejected Morgan Drexen’s and Pisinski’s claims ruled that the company had no legal grounds to litigate. The court also rejected claims from Pisinksi and the company that the CFPB was in violation of the U.S. Constitution’s separation of powers because it is not subject to Congressional oversight.In an enforcement action against Morgan Drexen in 2013, the CFPB claimed that the company was misleading consumers and illegally charging advance fees for services relating debt relief.Morgan Drexen sued the CFPB in 2013 after the Bureau asked the company to turn over thousands of sensitive documents relating to Pisinski’s clients who had filed for bankruptcy. The company and Piskinski said the documents are protected by attorney-client privilege and that it is improper for the CFPB to “data mine” the confidential financial information of distressed consumers. View a copy of Morgan Drexen’s complaint by clicking here.Representatives from Morgan Drexen could not immediately be reached for comment. A spokesman for the CFPB referred DS News to the court’s opinion when asked for comment.The federal district court in Washington, D.C., dismissed Morgan Drexen’s lawsuit in October 2013, and Piskinski subsequently appealed the district court’s dismissal. Click here to view a website dedicated to providing information on Morgan Drexen’s lawsuit against the CFPB.Testimony by CFPB Director Richard Cordray before the House Committee on Financial Services in early March prompted a flurry of proposals to reform the Bureau. U.S. Representative Sean Duffy (R-Wisconsin) introduced several such proposals just days after Cordray’s testimony, and in February, Representatives Steve Stivers (R-Ohio) and Tim Walz (D-Minnesota) revived a bipartisan bill that would create an independent Inspector General for the CFPB that is appointed by the president and approved by the Senate.

Tracking seabirds to identify ecologically important and high risk marine areas in the western North Atlantic

first_imgProtection of the marine environment lags far behind that of terrestrial domains. To help ameliorate this circumstance, top predators are being tracked to identify important ocean habitats, biodiversity hotspots and high risk areas and to assess effects of anthropogenic developments, pollution and environmental perturbations. We used GPS, Global Location Sensors (GLSs) and satellite platform terminal transmitters (PTTs) to track foraging and migrating thick-billed and common murres and northern gannets along with vessel surveys to identify potential Marine Protected Areas, to assess risk and to evaluate the consequences of the recent Gulf of Mexico oil disaster. Multi-year persistent sites of forage fishes generated multi-species predator aggregations. Species- and colony-specific winter inshore and offshore distributions of murres are associated with risks of climate change (ice), by-catch in fishing gear, hunting and oil extraction. Some thick-billed murres wintered in oceanic areas beyond the continental slope, and an area of high biological diversity was identified west of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge that, owing to its location beyond national jurisdictions, presents unique challenges for protection. Migration research indicated a substantial proportion of the North American gannet population wintering in the Gulf of Mexico near the Deepwater Horizon pollution area. Northern gannets incurred the highest incidence of oiling/recoveries and were the third-most oiled avian species; distributions and exit dates suggest that sub-adult birds suffered much, likely most, of this mortality. Environmental risk is being assessed by tracking combined with stable isotope and blood assays to probe trophic interactions, habitat relationships and to identify and protect biologically significant marine areas.last_img
