Tuesday 15 March 2011 9:53 am alison.lock KKR has more than $11bn for acquisitions Private equity giant Kohlberg Kravis & Roberts has told investors it has more than $11bn (£6.8bn) available to buy companies.KKR, which raised an $18bn global buyout fund in 2006, is just starting to raise a new North America-focused fund with a target size of $8-10bn.“We believe that is incredible capital to take advantage of the opportunities we see in private equity around the globe,” KKR partner Alexander Navab said, referring to the “dry powder.”With the financial crisis abating, private equity firms have been getting back into the market, hunting for deals to put billions of unspent dollars to work and exiting investments they made during the mergers boom before the crisis.KKR, which has $61bn in assets under management, has been aggressive in both buyouts and exits.The buyout shop, which has invested in companies such as retailer Dollar General and hospital operator HCA, has been lining up portfolio firms for initial public offerings.Just last week, HCA went public in the biggest private equity-backed offering ever in the US.Navab said monetisation activity so far this year would help the firm make more than $2bn in limited partner distributions.“Buyout king” Henry Kravis, who co-founded KKR nearly 35 years ago, said he and co-founder George Roberts think about succession issues “every day,” but added that their stepping down “I hope is in the distant future.”Kravis said KKR had a deep bench of potential successors.Since its July 15 debut on the New York Stock Exchange, KKR shares have risen nearly 70 per cent.

Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Finding the best cheap UK shares to buy now could be a very worthwhile move in the long run. They may offer a potent mix of financial strength and wide economic moats, as well as scope to deliver high capital growth in the long run because of their low current price levels.Since the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 have failed to fully recover from the 2020 stock market crash, there appears to be a wide range of choice for investors who are looking for cheap stocks. Here are some of the most promising stocks that could prove to be undervalued at the present time.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…Housebuilders: the best cheap UK shares to buy now?FTSE 100 housebuilders such as Taylor Wimpey, Persimmon and Barratt could be among the best cheap UK shares to buy now, I think. They trade at relatively low price levels as a result of the uncertain outlook for the wider sector. However, they have large net cash positions that should see them through the current economic crisis.Furthermore, the housing market is likely to receive substantial support in the coming years. For example, interest rates are set to remain at a low level to help make housing more affordable. And, while the Help to Buy scheme is due to change and the stamp duty holiday is expected to come to an end in March, further government support for the sector seems likely.FTSE 100 bank shares are dirt cheapEven though bank stocks such as HSBC, Natwest and Lloyds have made gains of late, they could still be among the best cheap UK shares to buy now. Certainly, they face extremely difficult trading conditions in the short run due to a low interest rate environment and a weak economic outlook. But a potential return to dividend payouts and an improving economic outlook could catalyse investor sentiment towards the sector.Moreover, the banking sector is in a stronger position than it was in the last major global recession. As such, investing in a diverse range of banks could prove to be a profitable long-term move, albeit with high volatility along the way as the current economic crisis unfolds.A long-term viewpoint of UK stocksClearly, the best cheap UK shares to buy now may not produce impressive returns in the short run. By definition, their low prices indicate that they face an uncertain near-term outlook that may negatively impact on investor sentiment in the coming months.However, past stock market declines have always been followed by long-term recoveries that yield new record highs. Cheap stocks have often been the best performers in such rallies. Therefore, buying a diverse range of such companies today could be a sound means of benefiting from a likely stock market rally that leads to rising share prices across today’s undervalued sectors.

Courtesy Jones family(WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.) — A former Palm Beach County, Florida, police officer was found guilty Thursday of all charges in the 2015 roadside killing of a church musician. The former Palm Beach Gardens officer, Nouman Raja, was convicted of manslaughter and attempted first-degree murder in the Oct. 19, 2015, shooting death of 31-year-old Corey Jones. Raja was immediately taken into custody once the jury’s verdict was announced. “I have some closure. This is going to be a long journey for me. I’ll never forget my son and now I can begin to start the process of healing and doing the things that he desired to do and that’s music,” Jones’ father, Clinton Jones Sr., said after the verdict was read. “I’m going through this mix: Peace, the pressure just left me. And I’m just filled with a lot of joy right now. My emotions are getting pretty wild right now,” he said. He thanked the jury for listening to the evidence and staying “focused.” “They persevered through the process,” he said. “This was not about race … this was about justice.” Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Global climate is changing, with heterogeneous effects on the biological world including direct impacts on plant phenology. The resilience and future dynamics of ecosystems will depend on their responsiveness to gradual environmental change, as well as susceptibility to more frequent climatic extremes (e.g. Orsenigo et al., 2014, Xu et al., 2013). High latitude regions are experiencing particularly rapid climatic changes, and bryophytes, specifically mosses, are the dominant plants in both the Arctic and the Antarctic. Wetlands cover 70% of the Arctic, largely made up of Sphagnum dominated peatlands that are shaped by freeze-thaw processes and may be minerotrophic fens or ombrotrophic bogs (Minayeva & Sirin, 2010). In the Antarctic, over one hundred species of moss have been identified (Ochyra et al., 2008), with two native vascular plant species. Most Antarctic mosses form occasional low growing carpets, mats, turfs and hummocks, whilst some ombrotrophic peat banks up to three metres deep have accumulated in more maritime areas.

FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailAndrew Redington/Getty ImagesBy EMILY SHAPIRO and MEREDITH DELISO, ABC News(LOS ANGELES) — No charges are anticipated against Tiger Woods after he was seriously injured in a rollover vehicle crash in Southern California, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva.“This is purely an accident,” Villanueva said Wednesday via Facebook live, adding that there was no evidence of impairment.The crash took place at 7:12 a.m. Tuesday on the border of Rolling Hills estates and Rancho Palos Verdes, the sheriff’s office said. Woods was the driver and only occupant, and no other vehicles were involved.The Los Angeles County Fire Department responded and used a Halligan tool and ax to extricate him, Chief Daryl Osby said at a press briefing Tuesday. Woods was removed through a windshield and taken to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center.Woods was transported in serious condition, with injuries to both his legs, Osby said. Woods was conscious and able to communicate at the scene, Villanueva said at the briefing. He was unable to stand on his own, authorities said.Woods underwent a long surgical procedure on his lower right leg and ankle after being brought to the hospital, officials said.“Mr. Woods suffered significant orthopaedic injuries to his right lower extremity that were treated during emergency surgery by Orthopaedic trauma specialists at Harbor-UCLA Medical Cente,” Anish Mahajan, MD, Chief Medical Officer & Interim CEO at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, said in a statement Tuesday night on Woods’ Twitter account.Tuesday night, Woods was reported as being awake, responsive and recovering in his hospital room, the statement said.The area of the rollover has a “high frequency” of accidents, Villanueva said Tuesday. The vehicle — a 2021 Genesis GV80 mid-size SUV — was found several hundred feet away from the center divider. There were no skid marks, and the amount the car traveled indicates it was traveling at a “greater speed than normal,” the sheriff said.The car hit the center median, crossed into the opposite lane and then hit the curb and a tree, Villanueva said. It also rolled over several times, the front end was “totally destroyed” and the airbag was deployed.“Thankfully, the interior was more or less intact, which kind of gave him the cushion to survive what otherwise would have been a fatal crash,” Villanueva said.Woods also was wearing a seatbelt, which authorities said may have helped save his life.“I’ve seen fatal traffic collisions, so I will say it’s very fortunate that Mr. Woods was able to come out of this,” Deputy Carlos Gonzalez, who was the first unit on the scene, told reporters.The sheriff said the car was the corporate sponsor vehicle for the Genesis Invitational, a golf tournament that Woods hosted in Los Angeles last week.The Lomita Sheriff’s Station will be conducting a traffic investigation, which could take several weeks to complete, Villanueva said.“When I arrived on scene, Mr. Woods was seated in the driver’s seat,” Gonzalez said. “I made contact with him, and I ensured that he was able to speak to me. At that time, he seemed as though he was still calm and lucid.”Gonzalez added, “I kept Mr. Woods calm. … I asked him what his name was. He told me his name was Tiger, and that moment I immediately recognized him.”There was a second accident following Woods’ crash — “People being lookie-loos,” the sheriff said — that had no injuries.The day of the crash, Woods was set to continue filming a GOLFTV and Golf Digest series in which he gives golf lessons to celebrities, Discovery said.The PGA Tour said in a statement, “On behalf of the PGA Tour and our players, Tiger is in our prayers and will have our full support as he recovers.”Fellow golfing legend Jack Nicklaus tweeted, “We are deeply concerned. We want to offer him our heartfelt support and prayers at this difficult time. Please join us in wishing Tiger a successful surgery and all the best for a full recovery.”Woods is second all-time in major victories, with 15, behind Nicklaus’ 18.Barack Obama and Donald Trump each sent their well-wishes to Woods in the hours after the crash.“[H]ere’s to a speedy recovery for the GOAT of golf,” Obama tweeted. “If we’ve learned anything over the years, it’s to never count Tiger out.”Spokesman and adviser Jason Miller shared a message from Trump on Twitter, which permanently suspended the 45th president following the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.“Get well soon, Tiger. You are a true champion!” Trump said in the statement.Trump awarded Woods the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2019, and the two golfed together several times during his presidency.Gold medal-winning skier Lindsey Vonn, who previously dated Woods, tweeted, “Praying for TW right now.”ABC’s Alex Stone reports for ABC News Radio: Beau Lund February 24, 2021 /Sports News – National No charges anticipated in Tiger Woods car crash
