Boohoo (LSE: BOO) shares have fallen 40% in the space of just a month. Warren Buffett has famously advised investors to “be greedy when others are fearful.” So, after the precipitous fall in the Boohoo share price, would he buy, sell, or hold the stock today?On the face of it, the answer seems straightforward. Buy! However, before you jump in with both feet, I think it’s worth considering whether, in Boohoo’s case, some of the great man’s other musings trump his “be greedy” tip.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…The Boohoo share price collapseAs recently as 17 June, Boohoo’s shares were trading at a new all-time high price of 415p. As I’m writing they’re trading around 245p.The slump followed a Sunday Times article on 5 July. It reported on an undercover investigation that found workers in Leicester, making clothes destined for Boohoo-owned brand Nasty Gal, were being paid as little as £3.50 an hour.Boohoo claimed to be “shocked and appalled” by the allegations. It announced it was launching an independent review of its UK supply chain, led by Alison Levitt QC. However, further media coverage and probing highlighted how Leicester’s rag trade ‘dark factories’ had been an open secret for years. And the Boohoo share price has remained depressed.Last week, in a report titled ‘Boohoo’s reputation craters after modern slavery allegations’, YouGov published its BrandIndex charts showing the scale of the damage done to the firm’s reputation.Warren Buffett and reputationBuffett puts great store in the reputation of a company and integrity of its managers. Testifying before Congress in 1991, regarding a scandal rocking investment bank Saloman Brothers in which he owned shares, he said: “Lose money for my firm and I will be understanding; lose a shred of reputation for the firm, and I will be ruthless.”Going by this stance, far from being greedy and buying Boohoo stock, Buffett would sell it in a flash. However, if we look a little further, we find his position isn’t quite as clear-cut as he stated it in 1991.Cockroaches in the kitchenBuffett sold his holding in Tesco after a string of damaging issues — including a cooking-the-books scandal — emerged during 2014. His regret was he didn’t sell as quickly as he might have done. He chastened himself, saying: “You see a cockroach in your kitchen; as the days go by, you meet his relatives.”Buffett used the cockroach analogy again in 2016 when a fake-accounts scandal emerged at one of his biggest investments, Wells Fargo. However, in this instance, he held on to his shares. The bank’s name was increasingly dragged through the mud, as more cockroaches appeared. Yet Buffett continued to hold, and retains a substantial stake in the business to this day.Here’s what I’d do about the Boohoo share price. If we avoid cherry-picking from Buffett’s words of wisdom, it seems there’s no clear-cut answer to the question of whether he’d buy, sell, or hold Boohoo shares. Personally, I’m watching the stock until management announces the terms of reference for the QC’s independent review.The terms are due to be announced by the end of the month. How wide or narrow they’re set should give us an idea of how open the company is to having its supply chain investigated. And how serious Boohoo is about resolving any issues discovered.

Black Panther Party soldier Romaine “Chip” Fitzgerald died March 28 in a California hospital. The 71-year-old had been incarcerated for over 51 years, the longest-held member of the Panthers. The following statement was issued on behalf of the family and Committee to Free Chip.Chip FitzgeraldOn Sunday, March 28, 2021, at 3:04 p.m., our brother, uncle, cousin, comrade and friend, Romaine “Chip” Fitzgerald, joined the ancestors. For a week, he lay barely conscious in a Los Angeles hospital as he struggled to extend his life after suffering a massive stroke in California’s gulag known as Lancaster.Chip’s strength and dedication to life remained intact as he defied those doctors who said he would not make it through the night in the hours after his initial arrival at the hospital. A stalwart soldier, he fought until his very last breath. Chip died as he had lived: fighting. A service is being planned which may be in a month or so due to COVID, followed by a memorial. We want to also thank the many thousands who put their voices together to free Brother Chip.Among the government’s many victims, Romaine “Chip” Fitzgerald was a member of the Black Panther Party in Los Angeles. Incarcerated since 1969, he grew old in prison and was disabled many years ago by an earlier, less lethal stroke. Like millions of Black youth during the sixties, Chip, at the age of 17, joined the freedom struggle as the social justice movement rapidly expanded to include massive numbers of urban youth.The government’s conduct towards Chip proves that important elements of our society are guided by an irrational tradition that values vengeance over justice or reconciliation. This failure demonstrates the nation’s unwillingness to fully acknowledge historic wrongs perpetrated against Black Americans.Chip never compromisedRomaine “Chip” Fitzgerald was a social justice activist and it is inhumane to imprison activists for 50 years or more, particularly while others convicted of comparable crimes have served significantly less time. A closer look reveals the only differences between those serving shorter sentences and those serving longer ones are the political beliefs and affiliations some had with social justice groups like the Black Panther Party.Chip never compromised, though he continued to the end to seek redress for this egregious wrong by working with his lawyer, family and defense committees to end his half-century nightmare of a slow death behind bars. For us the living, Chip’s passing is a lesson to keep fighting the good fight. To give when perhaps it’s hard to give. And to live when perhaps life seems so empty.Chip’s life did not leave us without a clear message. During his final days in the hospital, the authorities felt the need to chain and shackle Chip to his bed. Despite the fact that he was hardly conscious, they saw this demeaning action as necessary. What they failed to understand is that you can neither jail nor shackle the spirit of liberation. May we all aspire to leave this same impression of daring to struggle until our last breath. And may Chip’s stalwart example give us the courage to dare to win.All Power to the People!Free All Political Prisoners!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Photo courtesy Child Educational CenterThe Child Educational Center (CEC)’s Board of Trustees has announced that Tashon McKeithan, Ed.D. has been named to succeed Elyssa Nelson as the Executive Director of the CEC, effective August 3, 2020.Tashon assumes the Executive Director role from long-time Executive Director and CEC Co-founder Elyssa Nelson, who along with her husband Eric Nelson, started the CEC in September 1979 at the behest of the California Institute of Technology (Caltech). Since then, the CEC, nationally accredited by NAEYC, has served thousands of families in a progressive, nature- and play-based program for children aged two months to 12 years.Tashon has served in many roles during her more than two decades in education, including an elementary lead teacher, a Head Start director, an assistant principal and principal, primary school director, director of early childhood programs, and the director of a private preschool. She holds a Doctorate in Education (Ed.D.) and Education Leadership from California State University, Fullerton, a Master of Science in Early Childhood and Elementary Education from Bank Street College of Education, and she earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics and Sociology from Williams College.Tashon recently served as the Director of Early Childhood Programs at the Center for Early Education in West Hollywood. During her tenure there, she successfully expanded the toddler program to better meet the needs of the community, helped to implement an anti-bias curriculum, improved the outdoor classroom experience, and expanded the curricular offerings.According to Board of Trustees President Katie Kenyon, “Tashon is passionate about creating a joyful and supportive learning environment that supports children in feeling valued, finding their voice, and recognizing their unique potential. We are thrilled that Tashon will be our next leader and look forward to continuing to work together as a community to advance our mission and build upon the incredible legacy of Eric and Elyssa Nelson.”“To say that I have big shoes to fill is an understatement,” stated Tashon. “My goal is to continue the legacy of Eric and Elyssa and strengthen the organization as we head into our next four decades of continued success. I am excited to embark on this journey and am honored that I will be a part of such a special place.”Beginning in January 2020, the CEC’s Executive Director Search Committee, with the support of the executive search firm Berkhemer Clayton, Inc., began an extensive search to recruit the highest caliber candidates from across the country. The Search Committee was unanimous in its recommendation of Tashon, and the Board of Trustees adopted the Committee’s recommendation with excitement and enthusiasm.Tashon will assume her new position on August 3, with Elyssa remaining with the CEC in a mentorship role until August 31, 2020.

The Division Bench of Justice Vipin Sanghi and Justice Rajneesh Bhatnagar has also given permission to PETA and FIAPO to provide food and medicines in case they find any animal in distress during the survey. The order has come in writ petitions moved by PETA India and FIAPO seeking a direction to be issued to the Union of India, AWBI, Central Zoo Authority and registered circuses to ensure immediate prohibition on training and exhibition of performing animals in circuses and mobile entertainment facilities. In addition to this, the petition filed by FIAPO has also separately challenged the validity of Section 21-27 of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act to the extent that they permit exhibition and training of animals for circuses. During the last hearing, the court had pulled up AWBI for not conducting physical surveys for ascertaining conditions of animals and simply relying on the correspondence conducted with registered circuses. The court had directed the said Board to conduct a survey in the presence of veterinarians and submit a report by September 29. Today, PETA argued that it should be allowed to enter circuses and provide food and medicines to animals in distress. ‘If we wait for the survey to be conducted, many animals will be sacrificed’, PETA argued. Advocate Aman Hingorani for PETA further submitted that it has officers working at grassroot level who can provide immediate relief to the animals. ‘If we enter without an authority, the circuses won’t let us in. That’s why we seek a direction from the court in this regard’, PETA argued. Registered circuses such as Great Bombay Circus and Jumbo Circus resisted the demand put forward by the Petitioners by submitting that these organisations undermine the symbiotic relationship between the animal and the caretaker, they enter premises with preconceived agenda and take away the animals. ‘We have no objection to Petitioners participating in the survey as long as it is conducted by a statutory authority’, circuses submitted. Animal Welfare Board, on the other hand, submitted that it is the statutory duty of the Board to provide assistance to animals and the Petitioners, which are private bodies, should not be asked to interfere with the same. ‘We’re not interested in this rat race as to who should help the animals’, court responded. Therefore, the Petitioners are allowed to participate in the survey and assist the animals in distress. The Respondent Circuses have been asked to not to disrupt the assistance work carried out by the Petitioners. In addition to this, notices have also been issued to the various Ministries of the Central Government as well as to the AWBI to file counter affidavits on the issue of validity of Sections 21-27 of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act. The court will next take up the matter on September 29. Next Story
