Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Enter Your Email Addresscenter_img With concerns about a second wave of the coronavirus growing by the day, talk of another market crash around the corner is inevitable. At least some of those who believe it’ll happen will also be aiming to sell out just in time and buy back when share prices bottom out. Here’s why I can’t recommend this strategy. 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…Market crash timingTiming the market is fiendishly difficult. Who knew back in March that stocks would experience one of the sharpest falls in history, or that the FTSE 100 would tumble to as low as 5,000?The simple answer is no one. Not even the highly-qualified fund managers with their armies of analysts and wealth of data. There were simply too many factors at play. And if the professionals can’t do it, what chance do any of us have of predicting the next one?There might not even be another market crash for years!Strong recoveryJust as we couldn’t predict markets would fall so dramatically in March, nor could we foresee the recovery would be so immediate or so strong. In the US, the S&P 500 index is already back to where it was in February. The fact that many new investors have made big money on this rebound makes picking the bottom look misleadingly easy. The survivorship bias also means we’re less likely to hear about those who sold out in March and vowed never to return. Show me someone who has consistently and precisely timed the market throughout their career and I’ll let them manage my money. The shorter the time frame, the larger the role luck can play in stock market success. I think there’s a better way.A better route to richesFirst and foremost, find great companies worth investing in. What makes a company ‘great’ is contentious. However, looking for the same things as some of the UK’s top fund managers is a good place to start.Solid companies have a higher likelihood of making you money in the future, even if you need to pay a little bit more than you’d like. Buying an already-struggling business, even at a low price, makes things doubly-tough. The company must first survive a market crash and then turn itself around.Secondly, hold as much stock as you can within a Stocks and Shares ISA or, for those with one eye on retirement, a Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP). Do this, and any profits you make will be free of capital gains tax. Third, buy regularly. Since you can’t expect to win at the game if you don’t play, holding back with the aim of timing the market perfectly is a fool’s errand. Over the long term, it’s compounding that will make you a millionaire, not the brilliance of your timing.So, accept what you can’t know and control what you can, namely fees and your risk exposure. For the former, take advantage of monthly investment plans offered by your broker. This can reduce commission costs by roughly 90%!Lastly, check your portfolio irregularly. A watched pot never boils and your holdings won’t magically grow in value simply by looking at them. In fact, this hour-by-hour, day-by-day approach makes it far more likely you’ll think you can time the next market crash.Spoiler: you very probably can’t.  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.

Adam Thomson starts and finishes an excellent Highlanders try

first_imgThursday May 8, 2008 Adam Thomson starts and finishes an excellent Highlanders try Last weekend saw the Cheetahs playing host to the Highlanders in a bottom half of the table Round 12 Super 14 game that ended with an extremely exciting 20 mins of rugby. The Highlanders edged out the hosts 31-28, after being reduced to 13 men during the closing stages of the game.One of the tries of the match though came early in the second half, when Highlanders flanker Adam Thomson started and finished off this flowing move that began deep inside Cheetahs territory.The turnover saw Thomson race upfield, get the ball out with a neat backflick to Paul Williams, who then returned the favour and sent the flanker over the try line to retake the lead for the Highlanders.Sevens specialist Thomson has been putting in a number of good, skillful performances this season, as seen in our Pick of the Week from Round 3.Pieces of skill like this make the game look so simple, and make coughed up turnover ball all the more costly.

Philips Haus – an icon of 1960s modernism – forms a welcoming gesture on the southern entrance to the city of Vienna. Although dwarfed by nearby Wienerberg City, it continues to make an impact more than fifty years after its completion. Its shape and anatomy remain distinctively unique, leaving behind an architectural afterglow in the eyes of the thousands of motorists that drive by every day. Philips Haus still conveys the visionary spirit of its designer, renowned Viennese architect Karl Schwanzer.Save this picture!© moodley brand identity, Tina Herzl & Julian MullanOriginally conceived as the Austrian headquarters of Philips, it was opened in April 1965, after 4 years of construction starting in late 1961. Philips Haus showcases a particularly unique construction. It rests on 4 slender reinforced concrete pylons, prominently visible on its facades. Between those – and cantilevering beyond them considerably – span more than 70 metres long prestressed concrete beams. Two per floor, spaced 14m deep, connected by a minimized secondary floor and beam construction. As a result, the individual floors seem to rest between the primary pylons like a stack of shelves inserted through a pair of ladders. The centre-span of the longitudinal beams measures 39 meters, its cantilevers 16 meters on each side. A 76-meter-long, three-storey podium, sits off -centre underneath the high-rise slab. Both volumes are interconnected through a shared vertical circulation core.Save this picture!© Leo FellingerSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© moodley brand identity, Tina Herzl & Julian MullanApproximately 50m in height, the building is a masterpiece of structural engineering. Responsible for its structure was legendary Austrian engineer Robert Krapfenbauer in cooperation with the Munich fi rm Dyckerhoff & Widmann. A column-free plan allowed for the first open-space off ices in Austria in the 1960s, and today provided an ideal starting point for a sustainable refurbishment of the Philips Haus. Its open, interrupted layout facilitated a great variety of adaptations: from loft to micro apartment, all possibilities for conversion into contemporary forms of housing could be exploited. The result might be called a ‘vertical village’, composed from serviced apartments, supermarkets, restaurants, fitness club, parking and a future connection to the new U2 underground metro line.Save this picture!© Leo FellingerNine standard floors of the high-rise contain 135 serviced apartments which range in size from 30 to 46 m2. As future investments they are not intended for immediate personal use, but will be rented on a daily to monthly basis, fully furnished and supported by hotel-like infrastructure. Every apartment affords impressive views over the city, or southward across Lower Austria and to the Schneeberg. A truly magnificent 360° vista can be experienced from the 12th floor penthouse.Save this picture!© moodley brand identity, Tina Herzl & Julian MullanSave this picture!Type floor planSave this picture!© moodley brand identity, Tina Herzl & Julian MullanRevitalisation of the building was carried out in close coordination with the historic preservation authorities, as since 2010 the façade, structure and circulation cores had become registered monuments. Reconstruction of the aluminium ribbon windows received particular attention and was subtle reinterpretation of Schwanzer’s original façade from the 1960s – which did not survive into the 21st century and had been replaced a few times.Save this picture!© Leo FellingerA terrain modification from the 90ies could be undone, and the southern side re-established with its landmark panoramic window. Hence the podium would again – as intended by Karl Schwanzer – appear to be hovering above a slightly setback ground floor. Philips Haus became PhilsPlace, and thus – not least through its name – the original concepts and spirit of the building live on.Project gallerySee allShow lessNeris River House / Kubinis metrasSelected ProjectsHouse Luum / Pedro DomingosSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Triester Str. 64, 1100 Wien, AustriaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Unions step forward to battle racism

first_imgA large demonstration and strategy conference that is being called the “Days of Grace” is expected to take place in Charleston, S.C., on Sept. 5 and 6.The gathering will honor the nine parishioners from the Mother Emanuel AME Church who were murdered by a white supremacist last June 17, as well as Walter Scott, a Black man who was killed by police in North Charleston on April 4. The march will also support an action program, including an end to police brutality, a $15-an-hour minimum wage and collective bargaining rights for all workers, expanded voting rights, Medicaid expansion and quality education. The program is largely based around the issues that were advocated for by the Rev. Clementa Pinckney, the church minister and state senator who was one of those killed at Emanuel.In just over a month since the call to action was issued by the International Longshoremen’s Association Local 1422, the list of endorsing organizations from across the South and the U.S. has grown to more than 90 — including unions, Black Lives Matter chapters, churches, civil rights groups and social organizations. Organizers report that a large turnout is expected from across South Carolina, and delegations are being planned from states throughout the region.ILA locals from all over the East Coast and the International Longshore and Warehouse Union on the West Coast are mobilizing their members to participate in the weekend’s activities. The work to build the demonstration and conference has been anchored by a broad coalition of labor, civil rights, faith based and community organizations that have been making preparations and sending teams to canvass neighborhoods throughout the city.The Southern Workers Assembly has been engaged in outreach to unions and other worker organizations throughout the region. They are building for a Southern workers contingent in the march on Saturday morning and will be holding a meeting immediately following the march at 12:30 p.m. at the ILA hall at 1402 Morrison Drive.Working-class movement asked to fight racismAmong other things, the meeting will take up the need to engage the working-class movement more deeply in the fight against racist terror and confront the special conditions facing workers, particular Black workers, in the South. In a statement, the SWA said, “Young Black and people of conscience across the country are rebelling against this economic and politically driven racist climate that has declared War on Black America in the form of economic, political and social violence.”It continued, “To challenge and defeat this racist system, the power of the people, especially the Black and general working class must be organized and mobilized against the economic and political forces and system that place profits over human needs and rights. … Organized labor must become a force not only for economic justice, but also for social justice and fundamental change that benefits the majority of the people without special privileges. Labor must prepare itself to shut the economy down to stop the War on Black America and the working class!”The demonstration will begin Saturday, Sept. 5, at 9 a.m. in Wragg Square (342 Meeting St.) and conclude at Marion Square, near the Emanuel AME Church. The conference will begin shortly thereafter at 2 p.m. at the ILA hall and continue on Sunday, Sept. 6, from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. that afternoon.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Phase One Deal with China Making Progress

first_img SHARE Phase One Deal with China Making Progress President Trump has given some insight into the China Phase One negotiations that could lead to $40-$50 billion in ag purchases.During his cabinet meeting on Monday, Trump said farmers and farm groups that he spoke to said $20 million from China in ag purchases annually would be a good deal.“So, my people had $20 billion done. And I said, ‘I want more.’  They said, ‘The farmers can’t handle it.’  I said, ‘Tell them to buy larger tractors.  It’s very simple.’ They’ll buy more land and they’ll buy larger tractors.  But I want more.”He continued, “And I said, ‘We want $60 billion to $70 billion.’  And we agreed to $40 [billion] to $50 billion.  So, they wanted $20 billion, and I got $40 to $50 billion.  And they’ve already started buying…So, I want to thank China for that.”US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer reported to the president that progress is being made and the hope is to have it finalized and on paper when he visits Chile next month.Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Le Yucheng agreed that progress is being made, saying, “As long as we respect each other and seek equal cooperation, there are no disagreements that cannot be resolved between China and the United States.”President Trump went on to praise farmers during his cabinet meeting.“Our farmers have been great. They never wavered. They said, ‘The President is doing the right thing. We’re sticking with the President.’“I tell you, I didn’t see anybody — they looked — some of the networks, they looked.  They looked all over for somebody that can speak negatively about the President. And those farmers…they stopped.  They said, ‘Nope, he’s doing the right thing.  It may be hurting us, but he’s doing the right thing.’ And I think, in many ways, the farmer maybe is going to be the biggest beneficiary of what we’re doing — certainly one of them. I think our country is going to be the biggest beneficiary.” SHARE By Eric Pfeiffer – Oct 22, 2019 Home Indiana Agriculture News Phase One Deal with China Making Progress Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Previous articleEPA Unveils Great Lakes Restoration Initiative in DetroitNext articleClock Keeps Ticking Away for USMCA Vote Eric Pfeifferlast_img read more

SCN Keeps Spreading, New Form Of Resistance Available for 2021 Growing…

first_img This map shows the distribution of SCN in counties and rural municipalities in the U.S. and Canada as of 2020. Those reported as newly infested since 2017 are shown in blue. Courtesy photo.The SCN Coalition recently wrapped up its 2020 survey that tracks the expansion of soybean cyst nematodes. State experts have been collecting the data since 2017 and shared those findings with the Coalition.“They give up the information they have learned over the last three years, and then we add that to our database to create the map,” said Dr. Greg Tylka, nematologist for The SCN Coalition. “We do that in all the soybean-producing states in the U.S. as well as the soybean-producing provinces in Canada.”Tylka said the 2020 results show numbers have increased.“Surprisingly, between 2017 and 2020, there were 55 new counties recorded in 11 different U.S. states, including Michigan,” he said.New York state reported the biggest expansion of new counties, coming in at 29. Yield losses can steadily increase if SCN is left untreated. Tylka said a new form of resistance will be available to growers this planting season.“It’s two new varieties that are the same genetics, just branded under two different names—one from Northrup King and the other from Golden Harvest,” he said. “It has a set of genes from a breeding line called PI89772. We actually had it in some field plots in Iowa in 2020.”Tylka said when the ground thaws and drains enough in the spring to obtain a soil sample, you can ask your local lab to analyze it.

$750 million bond would pay for new schools, upgrades in FWISD

first_imgWhat we’re reading: Now he wants a tour Twitter Katie Carterhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/katie-carter/ Facebook Linkedin printFort Worth ISD residents will vote on a $750 million bond proposal Nov. 7 that would pay for two new schools and educational upgrades for high schools, according to district officials.“The district is expected to approach 90,000 students by 2020, and this current bond program addresses both our growing needs (new schools and classrooms) and a critically needed educational upgrade for our high schools,” FWISD superintendent Kent P. Scribner said in an online statement.The proposed bond is broken up into three sections where the $750 million will be allocated: upgrades for high schools, school overcrowding and student growth and specialized rigorous schools and programs.Breakdown of 2017 BondVenngage InfographicsHigh schools in Fort Worth ISD could receive various upgrades. Money will be allocated to upgrade science departments, libraries, collaboration areas, athletics, extra curricular activities and other areas.If the bond is passed, a board will meet to evaluate and determine which high schools are in need of which upgrades.Clint Bond, the director of external and emergency communications, put into perspective what the bond measure will cover.“Keep in mind that our 10-year long range facilities plan came up with $1.6 billion in projects that really need to be done in Fort Worth ISD,” he said.Some of these projects include updating safety and security within Fort Worth ISD.In 2007, the district began installing security cameras, Bond said. A lot of those cameras have outlived their lifespan and need to be replaced, which is just one aspect of safety and security, he emphasized.The bond would cover $750 million–or slightly less than half–of the $1.6 billion long range plan, Bond said. Another $850 million worth of projects would still need to be completed.The Long-Range Facilities Master Plan advisory group developed the $750 million bond proposal over a period of six months, according to the district. The group of parents, educators and community leaders focused on what FWISD schools needed to equip students to enter the 21st century workforce.Some Fort Worth parents said they didn’t think the new upgrades were as important as a supportive family environment in preparing students for the workforce.“I do not think adding more money into the school system has anything to do with having better students,” said Blair Walker, a mother of three. “Better home life is what makes kids confident enough to enter the workforce.”The last day to register to vote on the bond proposal is Oct. 10, with early voting running from Oct. 23 through Nov. 3. Election day is Tuesday, Nov. 7.

The Bench of Justice PV Kunhikrishnan observed that investigating officers in sensational cases are leaking confession statement of the accused and the media is giving wide publicity to such statements, especially in sensational cases. Deprecating such practice, the Bench reaffirmed, “An investigating officer cannot divulge any materials collected during the investigation to the public or media.” It recalled the verdict in Murukeshan v. State of Kerala, 2011(1) KLT 194, whereby the High Court had categorically observed, “all concerned should realise that once a case involving the commission of a cognizable offence has been registered and the FIR forwarded to the Magistrate concerned, the matter is sub judice and no police officer has the right to leak out information regarding the outcome of investigation until the final report is eventually filed before the Court.” Justice Kunhikrishnan remarked that the practice of leaking information on part of the investigating agencies as well as the media impinges upon the “fundamentals of criminal investigation”. It therefore warned, that if above directions are violated either by the police officers or the media, stringent actions will be taken against them. “If there is any violation of the directions of this court, the consequences will be serious. This court cannot sit as a silent spectator in criminal justice delivery system. If the confession statement and other materials collected during investigation are discussed in media and divulged to the general public, the situation will be perilous,” the Bench added. The remarks were made while allowing the bail application of Jolly Joseph of Koodathayi village of northern Kerala, accused of murder of six of her family members over a span of 17 years by administering them cyanide. The Court was considering her bail plea in the case related to the alleged murder of her relative Annamma Thomas in 2002. (She will not be released from jail as her bail pleas in criminal cases related to alleged murder of other family members was earlier denied by the Court) The Court explained that confession statement given by an accused in police custody is not admissible in evidence. However, the general public may not be aware of this aspect and it may “suspect” the judiciary of foul play, when a verdict is passed based on other admissible evidence. “A court of law can accept only legal evidence. If a court of law decides a case based on legal evidence, the general public may suspect even the judiciary, if the present situation of divulging confession statement and other materials collected during investigation is leaked like this. A full stop is necessary.” The Bench requested all reporters and anchors of print and visual media to “read section 24 of the Evidence Act” before framing headlines in the newspapers and before giving breaking news in News Channel based on confession statement of accused who are in police custody.
