Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Get the full details on this £5 stock now – while your report is free. The Babcock International (LSE: BAB) share price crashed 16% on a trading update last Friday. The price continued to slide precipitously earlier this week, and the shares hit a 15-year low of 199p on Tuesday.Could this FTSE 250 defence outsourcer be one of the biggest bargains in the market today? And should I buy it for a recovery?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…When the Babcock share price was 675pDuring 2017, I took a close look at a number of outsourcers. Namely, Carillion, Kier and Mitie. I found worrying signs of aggressive accounting, and balance sheets that were far shakier than they appeared on the surface.I didn’t look at Babcock. However, towards the end of 2017, Morgan Stanley put out a research note suggesting there were similar issues at the defence outsourcer to those I’d found at Carillion, Kier and Mitie. A dive into Babcock’s accounts was enough for me to alert Motley Fool readers to the issues in an article titled This Neil Woodford favourite isn’t the only stock I’d sell today.The Babcock share price was 675p at the time. Three years on, it’s around 70% lower. The company has a new chief executive (appointed last September) and finance director (appointed last November). So, is it ripe for a turnaround?Last week’s Babcock share price crashThe trading update Babcock released last Friday covered the first nine months of its current financial year, which ends 31 March. The performance wasn’t great. Underlying revenue for the period was down 3%, and underlying operating profit slumped 34%. The company cited a negative impact from civil nuclear insourcing, Covid-19 and civil aviation.Period-end net debt was £1.2bn (in line with its average over the nine months), while its current market capitalisation stands at £1.1bnAs to the full-year outlook, Babcock said: “Uncertainty remains around the outturn for this financial year, especially given that our fourth quarter is historically our strongest and that the Covid-19 situation has worsened in most of our markets.”Management said it was giving no financial guidance for the year, due to the fourth-quarter trading uncertainty. But also because of one other factor. I view this factor as highly relevant to any investment at Babcock’s current share price.Uh-oh, Chongo!The factor in question jumped out at me, due to my previous concerns about signs of aggressive accounting.Babcock announced: “We have recently started a detailed review of our balance sheet and contract profitability. Early indications suggest that there may be negative impacts on the balance sheet and/or income statement for current and/or future years. This review is being supported by an independent accounting firm …”Would I buy?My reading of the situation is that the new chief executive and finance director have come in and aren’t comfortable with Babcock’s previous accounting. Hence the review, supported by an independent accounting firm.I think any deep-cleaning of Babcock’s balance sheet is likely to reveal a company in a considerably weaker financial position than many investors currently imagine.Given its debt and lack of earnings visibility, I find it easy to picture Babcock’s lenders making their continued support of the business contingent on an equity fundraising. Due to this risk of shareholder dilution, I see Babcock as a stock I’d avoid at this juncture.

first_imgGeo Martinez poses for the Mask Up TCU campaign on Instagram. (Photo courtesy of Mask Up TCU.) Jillian Verzwyvelt Jillian Verzwyvelthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/jillian-verzwyvelt/ World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Facebook printA student-initiated social media campaign, “Mask Up TCU,” is encouraging students and the Fort Worth community to wear their masks.The effort is led by Madelyn Hicks, a junior strategic communication and theater double major, and Hannah Divic, a senior combined science major. Both students are resident assistants in Milton Daniel Hall and Marion and P.E. Clark Halls, respectively.The Instagram account @maskuptcu made its first post on Aug. 25 and gained over 400 followers within its first week. The account features 50 resident assistants alongside faculty and staff members, including Chancellor Victor Boschini and Assistant Vice Chancellor for Public Safety Adrian Andrews. The posts show people wearing masks while holding a whiteboard with the hashtag “#Iwearmymaskbecause,” along with a personal statement on why each individual wears a mask. Hicks said the campaign was created to overcome skepticism and shaming felt by students from impersonal emails and signs by adding an element of social pressure and a purpose behind this semester’s new safety policies. Cassidy Wiggins, a TCU student, for the Mask Up TCU campaign. (Photo by Tyler Morris)“If there’s more understanding, people are more likely to follow the rules,” Hicks said. The campaign was created to extend an opportunity to students to express their own “why.” “Wearing your mask is about loving people,” she said. “Like loving my grandmother who is immunocompromised, my best friend, or my neighbor who I just don’t want to get COVID-19.”Hicks and Divic see the campaign growing bigger and moving beyond Instagram. The plan is to create a Facebook page to reach parents and then open participation to the entire campus community. Over the next few weeks, “Mask Up TCU” will invite students and faculty from across campus to sign up for a designated time slot to take their picture with the whiteboard and share their own stories. People will be able to sign up for a slot through a SignUpGenius link which will be sent in an email from a member of the initiative.“We will reach out to more students, professors and hall directors to make it open to everybody. If more stories can be told, that’s the goal,” said Hicks.  ReddIt SAC moves to a virtual improv experience Welcome TCU Class of 2025 Jillian Verzwyvelthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/jillian-verzwyvelt/ Students share favorite on-campus study spots Twitter How performing arts majors are adjusting to the pandemic Jillian Verzwyvelt is a junior economics and communication studies double major from Lafayette, Louisiana.

We comprise a select part of an honourable profession. We are entrusted, day after day, with the exercise of considerable power. Its exercise has dramatic effects upon the lives and fortunes of those who come before us. Citizens cannot be sure that they or their fortunes will not some day depend upon our judgement…It is necessary for the continuity of the system of law as we know it, that there be standards of conduct, both in and out of court, which are designed to maintain confidence in those expectations.” J. B. Thomas, Judicial Ethics (Sydney, Law Book Company, 1988). The last working day of Justice R. Banumathi as a Judge of the Supreme Court of India was on 17th July, 2020, though her date of retirement is 19th July, 2020, which is a holiday. It is in the fitness of things to highlight her  journey, her efforts to preserve and strengthen the rule of law, and the landmark judgments pronounced by her. When I was interning under a Senior Advocate at the Supreme Court of India, I had the opportunity to observe her discharging her duties. A calm and relaxed persona, proficient in the system of laws, and her steadfastness to safeguard the rule of law, make her an amalgam of the qualities required of a robust judge. Justice R. Banumathi was enrolled as an advocate in the year 1981 and started practising in the Mofussil Courts of the State of Tamil Nadu. After putting her best foot forward as an advocate, she decided to enter Tamil Nadu Higher Judicial Service, and, in the year 1988, she became a direct recruit District Judge. She discharged functions in numerous Districts of Tamil Nadu as a District & Sessions Judge. In the year 2003, she was elevated to the High Court of Madras as a High Court Judge. She played a vital role in organizing training programmes for Judicial Officers and Staff Members in order to enhance their skills and also authored a book, titled, “Hand Book of Civil and Criminal Courts Management and Use of Computers,” which proved to be a boon for the Judicial Ministerial Staff. As an Executive Chairman, Tamil Nadu State Legal Services Authority, and, also, as Chairman, Madras High Court Legal Services Committee, she played a very important role in organizing Lok Adalats for the speedy and economical dispensation of justice to people. She was appointed as the Chief Justice of Jharkhand High Court in the year 2013, and, after delivering significant judgments and working tirelessly for the dispensation of justice, she was elevated to the Supreme Court of India in the year 2014. She became the Sixth Woman Judge of the Apex Court and Second Woman Judge to have risen through the ranks from the lower Judiciary to a Judge in the Supreme Court after Justice M. Fathima Beevi. Justice R. Banumathi has delivered many landmark judgments as a Judge of the Supreme Court of India. It will be apposite to emphasize some of the important judgments pronounced by her during her period in office. In the case of Mukesh v. State (NCT of Delhi), (2017) 6 SCC 1, being part of the three-judge Bench, which upheld the death penalty of convicts in the Nirbhaya rape and death case, Justice Banumathi wrote a separate but concurring judgment. She aptly enunciated that incidents involving rape and death shock the collective conscience of the society and whenever grave violations of human dignity come to fore, an unknown sense of insecurity and helplessness grabs the entire society, and, in such a situation, the State has to take command and remedy such situations effectively. She highlighted the importance of gender justice in the following words: – “We have a responsibility to set good values and guidance for posterity. In the words of great scholar, Swami Vivekananda, “the best thermometer to the progress of a nation is its treatment of its women”. Crime against women not only affects women’s self-esteem and dignity but also degrades the pace of societal development. I hope that this gruesome incident in the capital and death of this young woman will be an eye-opener for a mass movement “to end violence against women” and “respect for women and her dignity” and sensitising public at large on gender justice. Every individual, irrespective of his/her gender must be willing to assume the responsibility in fight for gender justice and also awaken public opinion on gender justice. Public at large, in particular men, are to be sensitised on gender justice. The battle for gender justice can be won only with strict implementation of legislative provisions, sensitisation of public, taking other proactive steps at all levels for combating violence against women and ensuring widespread attitudinal changes and comprehensive change in the existing mindset. We hope that this incident will pave the way for the same.” In the case of Jindal Stainless Limited and Anr. v. State of Haryana and Others, (2017) 12 SCC 1, Justice Banumathi was part of the nine-judge Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court, which upheld the constitutional validity of Entry Tax imposed by States on goods coming in from other states by 7:2 majority. The majority held that the power of taxation is regarded as political and supreme, and, without taxes, the Government would become paralyzed. The amount of revenue which is to be drawn and from which source, is a matter of fiscal policy and wholly depends on the needs of a State as tax is a mode of redistribution of wealth in the form of public welfare.Justice R Banumathi : Notable Decisions In the case of Modern Dental College & Research Centre v. State of M.P., (2016) 7 SCC 353, where the validity of the provisions of the statute passed by the State Legislature, known as “Niji Vyavasayik Shikshan Sanstha (Pravesh Ka Viniyaman Avam Shulk Ka Nirdharan) Adhiniyam, 2007” was challenged, Justice Banumathi was part of the five-judge Constitution Bench, which upheld the validity of the said legislation, held that the regulations on admission process are necessary for the larger public interest and welfare of the student community to ensure fairness and transparency in the admission and to promote merit and excellence. She further stated that the regulation on fixation of the fee is to protect the rights of the students in having access to higher education without being subjected to exploitation in the form of profiteering. In Bir Singh v. Delhi Jal Board, (2018) 10 SCC 312, again, being part of the five-judge Constitution Bench, Justice Banumathi dissented, by differentiating between posts for which recruitment was executed by the Union government and those posts for which it was executed by the NCT of Delhi, whereas, the majority held that candidates from Union and State lists could apply to the Delhi Jal Board. Justice Banumathi observed: – “It is the responsibility of each State/Union Territory to provide for such reservation/affirmative action by positive discretion to bring Backward Classes/Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes in the respective States/areas to provide socio-economic empowerment. If the reservation to the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes are to be extended to all categories of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes all over India or to the migrants then there is every possibility of the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes of other developed States and Union Territories squandering reservations to the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes who are disadvantaged in the respective States/Union Territories including Union Territory of Delhi. If this is permitted, it would defeat the very object of providing reservation to the disadvantaged Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes in a particular State or Union territory. The enabling provision of Article 16(4) of the Constitution has to yield to the constitutional scheme of Articles 341 and 342 of the Constitution.” Justice Banumathi has always focused on the rights of the accused and the interests of the victim and society at large, believing, that a reasonable proportion has to be maintained between the gravity of the offence and the punishment. Justice Banumathi has delivered a great many judgments on matters involving Constitutional Law, Civil Law, Criminal Law, Arbitration Law, and various other legislations. Her judgments are crisp, perspicuous, and comprehensible. In the case of P. Chidambaram v. Central Bureau of Investigation, (2019) SCC OnLine SC 1380, Justice Banumathi elucidated the factors which have to be taken into consideration while considering an application for bail, which are: – the nature of accusation and the severity of the punishment in the case of conviction and the nature of the materials relied upon by the prosecution; reasonable apprehension of tampering with the witnesses or apprehension of threat to the complainant or the witnesses; reasonable possibility of securing the presence of the accused at the time of trial or the likelihood of his abscondence; character behaviour and standing of the accused and the circumstances which are peculiar to the accused; larger interest of the public or the State and similar other considerations. Justice Banumathi held that there is no hard and fast rule regarding grant or refusal to grant bail, each case has to be considered on its facts and circumstances and its own merits. Also, the discretion of the court while granting or refusing bail has to be exercised judiciously and not in an arbitrary manner. Speaking at a function organized by the Bar Council of Tamil Nadu and Puducherry, Justice Banumathi beautifully stated that young lawyers must follow the word ‘SHAPE’ in which ‘S’ stands for Sincerity, Spirit in which you work, Success, Solid, Substantial, ‘H’ stands for Hard work, Honesty, Higher thoughts, Heights-Scaling Heights, ‘A’ stands for Ambition, Attitude, Ability to learn, ‘P’ stands for Performance, Perfection, Precision, Patience, Politeness, and ‘E’ stands for Ethics, Education, Equipping, Equipments. The large number of judgments authored by her, which reportedly are more than those of any current SC judge, stand testimony to her hardworking nature. Justice Banumathi, who rose from the ranks through her hard-work and commitment, will remain a true source of inspiration for members of legal fraternity.

A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice S Vishwajith Shetty, while hearing a petition filed by All India Council of Trade Unions(AICTU) and High Court Legal  Services Committee, observed : “There can be no dispute that our Constitutional philosophy does not permit any form of manual scavenging. Right of a citizen to live with dignity is an integral part of the fundamental rights guaranteed to the citizens under Article 21 of the Constitution of India. The preamble of the Constitution shows that the Constitution seeks to protect the dignity of an individual. There can be no dispute that manual scavenging is most inhuman and it infringes the fundamental rights guaranteed under Article 21.” The bench held that “If any citizen is forced to do manual scavenging, it will be a gross violation of his fundamental right conferred under Article 21 of the Constitution of India. Under Article 47 of the Constitution of India which is a part of Directive Principles of the State Policy, the State is under an obligation to endeavor to improve the standard of living of its people.” The court also highlighted the major difference between the old act (Employment of Manual Scavengers and Construction of Dry Latrines (Prohibition) Act, 1993) and the Act of 2013. It said that the definition of ‘manual scavenger’ in the Manual Scavengers Act is much wider than the definition of ‘manual scavenger’ defined under clause (j) of Section 2 of the old Act. “Under sub-section (1) of Section 5 of the Manual Scavengers Act, there is a complete prohibition on manual scavenging. Under Section 3 of the old Act, the State Government was required to issue a notification for prohibiting engagement or employment of any person for manual scavenging”, the Court said. It added “Thus, under the old Act, the prohibition was not automatic. The provisions of the new Act are more comprehensive.” On going through past orders passed by the courts and compliance reports filed the bench said: “We have found that there is hardly any implementation of the provisions of the Manual Scavengers Act and the Rules in the State of Karnataka. Therefore, this is a case where continuous monitoring will be necessary and the power of issuing continuing mandamus will have to be exercised.” Accordingly, the bench issued the following directions: *The State Government shall place on record the details about the number of First Information Reports registered for the offences punishable under the Manual Scavengers Act, the details of the cases in which charge sheets were filed, the details of the cases which are pending and the details of the Cases which resulted in conviction.
