How I’d invest in this stock market crash to make a million Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! The recent stock market crash could present a buying opportunity for investors who can adopt a long-term approach to their portfolios. Of course, in the short run, many stock prices could experience declines should the global economic outlook deteriorate.However, by focusing your capital on the highest-quality stocks available and diversifying across a wide range of sectors, you could obtain a favourable risk/reward ratio while stock prices are low. This could increase your chances of making a million over the coming years.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…A long-term approachInvesting during, or shortly after, a stock market crash can lead to disappointing results in the short run. For example, the economic impact of coronavirus may prove to be worse than investors are currently factoring in. This may cause stock prices to experience further falls that produce paper losses for investors.As such, it’s imperative to adopt a long-term approach when investing during a period where stock market volatility is high. The track record of equities shows they experience periods of decline at fairly regular intervals.However, these periods have always been followed by strong recoveries that lead to the stock market producing new record highs. As such, buying stocks today while they offer wide margins of safety could enable you to benefit from the long-term recovery potential on offer.A focus on quality after a market crashAs with every economic downturn, some companies won’t survive. They may, for example, have experienced a decline in sales that means they’re unable to pay their fixed costs. Or they may have taken on too much debt during the decade-long economic boom and are unable to service it.Therefore, it’s worth assessing the financial strength of a business following a market crash before purchasing a slice of it. This may include focusing on its debt levels, cash flow strength, and its interest coverage ratio to ascertain the likelihood of surviving a period of lower sales growth. It may also be worth checking the performance of a company in prior economic downturns. This would help you assess its defensive characteristics during periods when its sales have come under pressure.Diversifying across multiple sectorsAs well as buying high-quality companies for the long term, diversifying across a variety of sectors may be a sound move in a market crash. Some sectors, such as travel & leisure, may struggle to emerge intact from the current crisis. They may face a prolonged period of weaker demand that reduces their return prospects.As such, having exposure to a range of sectors could reduce your overall risk. It may well improve your return prospects over the long run. This could enable you to fully access the stock market’s long-term recovery potential. And that would boost your chances of generating a seven-figure portfolio in the coming years.

It describes the process by which disruptive innovations overhaul existing businesses. I think this concept is quite relevant today. Coronavirus, lockdowns, the recession, and of course the stock market crash, have affected business in a big way. Some enterprises have had to close their shutters forever. The UK’s brick and mortar retail stores are a good example. They were feeling the heat even before the crisis struck. Debenhams went into administration last year. Marks & Spencer has also been struggling. Lockdowns only accelerated this process. Fashion brand-cum-retailers like Laura Ashley and Monsoon Accessorize recently went under, for instance. 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…Online shopping in the spotlightWhere some segments have lost, however, others have boomed. I’m talking about the digital marketplace. Online sales were always the future of shopping, but now they are even more so. I reckon this disruptive innovation isn’t about to look back. As consumers, we look for convenience. Once we’ve experienced how convenient online shopping can be, we are likely to engage more with it. It might even become our preferred way to shop now. US-based Amazon, of course, is the biggest example of a company that has ramped up operations in the lockdown. But British brands are thriving too. Last week, I wrote about the FTSE 100 food delivery app, Just Eat Takeaway. Earlier this week, I talked of the FTSE 100 online grocery retailer, Ocado, which was almost undamaged from the stock market crash. My stock market crash pickAnother such is the FTSE 100 online property portal and app RightMove (LSE: RMV). Unlike many other shares that have bounced back to pre-market crash levels, RMV is still trading at a discount. This was to be expected. Real estate is a cyclical industry, which is highly sensitive to recessions. But RMV is in (relative) luck. It’s not a traditional real estate company. It’s an online marketplace bringing together buyers and sellers of property. As I was saying earlier, online shopping is a growing market. And RMV is a leader in the online real estate segment. So, it’s poised to grow further unless something goes terribly wrong. It has also been less affected than traditional real estate companies, which have had to stop all construction activity. I reckon as investors get past the stock market crash trauma, and the FTSE 100 gets back on firm footing, RMV will start rising again. In fact, it already has. In June on average, its stock price has been 22% higher than in April, when it was at its lowest. But, there’s much more potential here. Its share price is still lower by 11% from the time I last wrote about it in January. Until the recession’s over, the property sector is likely to remain muted. So investors in RMV may have to wait for a while before their gains really start kicking in. But I think it will be worth it. RMV is a financially healthy company in a growing sector. I’d buy today. last_img read more

first_img TAGSFocus on FloridaMedical Marijuana Previous articleAPD Chief McKinley to speak at CONA meetingNext articleWekiva High teacher wins marathon Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Many of the 71-percent of Floridians who voted for Amendment 2’s expanded use of medical marijuana are likely to be unhappy with a bill from House Majority Leader Ray Rodrigues that would limit options and maintain a restricted market for legal cannabis.HB 1397 enumerates qualifying medical conditions and a regulatory structure for doctor certification, patient registration, and marijuana research that resembles previous bills. It also would exempt marijuana and marijuana products from sales tax, reflecting its designation for medical use.But the Estero Republican’s measure would allow for minimal marketplace expansion, meaning that the already-licensed dispensaries maintain an advantage. Further, it would place significant restrictions on what types of medical marijuana products patients have access to. Edible and smokeable cannabis products would be banned, and vaping is limited to terminal patients.The restrictions perplex marijuana advocates such as Ben Pollara, executive director of the advocacy group United for Care, which spearheaded the pro-Amendment 2 campaign.“The question we’ve been asking all day is, ‘Well, how can you ingest it?’” he told the Miami New Times.Pollara also criticized the market restrictions.ROLLED OUT: A new bill introduced by Florida House Majority Leader Ray Rodrigues would prohibit medical marijuana patients from smoking pot, and allow vaping only for terminal patients.“Forget about government not being in the business of picking winners and losers. HB 1397 literally picks losers in the issuance of the first tranche of new licenses proposed in the legislation,” Pollara said in a statement following the bill’s introduction earlier this week.The Rodrigues bill would grant the first five additional medical marijuana treatment center licenses to applicants who were previously denied licenses.This latest entry joins a series of measures previously introduced in the Senate.The marketplace under the Rodrigues bill would look very different from what State Sen. Jeff Brandes, R-St. Petersburg, has proposed. While the Brandes bill would impose a population-based cap on dispensaries, it takes a more free-market approach to determining the medical marijuana program structure.Senate President Joe Negron, R-Stuart, expressed confidence that the Senate Health Policy Committee will be able to integrate the multiple options into compromise legislation.Paul Armentano, deputy director of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, told Watchdog that he hopes for a speedy resolution.“Rather than seeking to find a legislative end-run around the will of the 71 percent of voters who decided in favor of Amendment 2, lawmakers ought to move swiftly to implement the law in a manner that legitimately addresses patients’ needs and accurately reflects the will of the electorate,” Armentano said.Legislators have until July to put new regulations in place.

first_imgMonday Oct 13, 2008 Matthew Rees yellow carded for late and dangerous tackle Scarlets hooker Matthew Rees was given his marching orders against Harlequins on the weekend for a tackle that, according to the officials, was without the ball and possibly dangerous. It was to be the last Heineken Cup clash at the old Stradey Park, and the Scarlets were looking to give the home faithful the send off they deserved. After ten minutes, it looked like they were on route to achieving that, but Harlequins fought back and despite Llanelli (now Scarlets) leading 19-3 at half time, the game ended 29-22 to Harlequins. Rees’ yellow card came at a vital time with the loss of the Welsh hooker having an impact on the match. Coach Nigel Davies refused to blame the sending off for the loss, but did have a few words to say about it. “It was a tough call but it was made and we had to deal with it,” said Davies. “It had an influence on the end result but I was more annoyed that tactically we went away from what we had spoken about at half-time.” The hit on Tani Fuga came as the Samoan neatly flicked the ball on with Rees approaching. Rees was seemingly committed, and the tackle looked fair, but the referee deemed that because Fuga didn’t have the ball, it was a yellow card. The way Rees speared Fuga when following through would have had an influence on the decision no doubt, but some would be inclined to say the sending off may have been a bit harsh. Everyone views these type of tackles differently though, so we thought it would be interesting to stick this up and see what the opinions are.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

With this 250m2 family home, the French architect Nicolas Dahan signs a see-through haven inviting the beauty of its surrounding environment inside, which is seamlessly built using expert wood engineering techniques. The floor and the ceiling mirror each other’s dimensions, breaking down all notions of hierarchy. Eyesight glides between pine trees and interior perspectives, feet wander with ease from the warm sand outside onto the supple okoume wood flooring indoors.Save this picture!© Vincent Leroux“To enter the pine forest is to enter the house. The site itself is integral to the architecture. The pine and oak trees provide shelter from strong winds. The ocean, though not visible, is so close that the sound of the surf rhythms the day. Nature runs through the bedrooms and the living room. The house is built where the air flows”, describes Nicolas Dahan. Redefining the idea of the threshold, the architect hasn’t created a traditional front entrance. To enter the house you stride right into the 130m2 living space or into one of the 5 rooms sitting on the 4000m2 pine forest.Save this picture!© Vincent LerouxSave this picture!© Vincent LerouxThe roof is comprised of 136 larch caissons, the floor is made of 136 okoume wood panels, perfect symmetry aligns this architectural sandwich. The main inspiration for space stems from the single-story American villa, and the floor and the ceiling require engineering skills developed by John Lautner’s vision for open architecture.Save this picture!© Vincent LerouxSave this picture!AxonometricSave this picture!© Vincent Leroux“We had to install a depot on-site to shelter the construction, the level of precision required to build the roof did not allow for any humidity. The larch has been sanded down to acquire a finish usually reserved to furniture. There are no screws and no apparent nails. The use of shadow joints offers a unique sense of fluidity both inside and outside of the house. The central 16m long beam is worthy of a gymnasium, yet its finishes are done in such a way that it becomes part the domestic space.” explains Nicolas Dahan.Save this picture!© Vincent LerouxSave this picture!Floor plansSave this picture!© Vincent LerouxCatching the light is a luxury. “The standard height for sliding glass doors is 2,20m, here they reach beyond 3 meters high. This is a sign of luxury. The magic offered by Brazilian villas that we see in magazines relies on large-scale made to measure glass surfaces. Only 5 contractors in the world are able to offer such large volumes of glass, capable of the lightness of gliding. The result, invisible to the uncultured eye, is unique. The shadows of the pine forest, projected onto the interior wooden surfaces, accompany the inhabitants with different degrees of intensity all throughout the day. The bedrooms and living room make the most of all four cardinal directions, north, east, south, and west.Save this picture!© Vincent LerouxSave this picture!© Vincent LerouxLuxury comes at a cost and with constraints: holding down a roof that would otherwise fly off as of the first storm. “Two-thirds of the house is built using glass walls that are too light to hold down the roof in heavy weather. We have been obliged to weigh it down with metal and to anchor the house with cement walls. It is the perfect example of the sensitive nature of this type of construction. We have pushed wood and glass to their limits, in such a way that they reveal their strengths and weaknesses. The house is a member of the family in the Japanese sense, a member that must be taken care of.Save this picture!© Vincent LerouxWood is a terrific material, it is supple yet ultimately has its weaknesses. For it to become as strong as cement, it must be helped, weighed down, sanded, varnished. Long after construction, the house will continue to live on its own”.Save this picture!© Vincent LerouxProject gallerySee allShow lessLondon Introduces Car-Free Streets as Lockdown EasesArchitecture NewsSerres Séparées Proposes a Socially-Distant Dining Experience in AmsterdamArchitecture News Share “COPY” Houseslast_img read more

first_img News In a press release on 1 December, RSF defended another target of the judicial harassment to which The Frontier Manipur is being subjected. It was one of its journalists, video presenter Kishorechandra Wangkem, who had been held for the past two months. He was freed on bail ten days later but continues to be the target of constant judicial harassment. He has repeatedly been arrested since 2018, when he criticized Manipur’s chief minister and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, both members of the Bharatiya Janata Party, the ruling party at national and state level. News “I wasn’t expecting anything of that sort given that we had already made the necessary corrections,” Soraisam told RSF after being bailed. “Things are really very bad in [Manipur] right now. The government wants to muzzle all critical voices.” IndiaAsia – Pacific Condemning abusesProtecting journalistsOnline freedomsMedia independence ImprisonedInternetFreedom of expressionJudicial harassmentViolence March 3, 2021 India: RSF denounces “systemic repression” of Manipur’s media IndiaAsia – Pacific Condemning abusesProtecting journalistsOnline freedomsMedia independence ImprisonedInternetFreedom of expressionJudicial harassmentViolence In rural India, journalists face choice between covering pandemic and survival “By using such methods to target journalists it doesn’t like, the assembly’s secretariat is behaving in an absolutely unacceptable manner for an institution that claims to safeguard democracy,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk. News “What is happening in Manipur now is systemic state repression of the media,” Chaoba told RSF. “The government wants to gag the media and repress civil society as a whole. This is in keeping with the larger trend in India. A journalist working in this state is constantly under threat as it is. With the government now coming down heavily on critical voices in a very arbitrary manner, it is getting increasingly difficult to do journalism.” Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is zooming in today on Manipur, a small state in northeastern India where press freedom violations are on the rise and where journalists are increasingly being persecuted by the local government, parliament and judiciary. RSF calls on the local authorities to stop trying to intimidate reporters. Orchestrated crackdown Organisation After confiscating her pass and escorting her to the exit, “they said they had an order to not let me in,” Jajo said, “I asked to see the order but the order never came. While I waited, they treated me very badly, insulted me and finally asked me to vacate the entrance.” “We call on assembly speaker Yumnam Khemchand Singh to immediately drop the absurd proceedings against Grace Jajo and The Frontier Manipur. And more generally, in the light of the steady decline in press freedom in Manipur, we caution chief minister N. Biren Singh against any future violation of journalists’ rights and we remind him that he used to be a reporter before he entered politics.” Institutional credibility The pretext was her Facebook post sharing an article that a local news website, The Frontier Manipur, had published on 20 February, in which it exercised its right to respond to the accusations of “breach of privilege” and “contempt of the House” that the assembly’s secretariat had brought against the site in connection with one of its articles. The article, about an address that Manipur chief minister Nongthombam Biren Singh had delivered to the assembly, took all of its information from an official press release. RSF demands release of detained Indian journalist Siddique Kappan, hospitalised with Covid-19 Follow the news on India Chaoba and one of his editors, Dhiran Sadokpam, were themselves arrested a month before, on 17 January, and were held overnight after The Frontier Manipur published an op-ed about the “armed revolutionary movement” in Manipur. In order to be released, they had to tell the police they did not know its author, M Joy Luwang, and doubted the authenticity of his sources.center_img “Grace Jajo was humiliated despite having all the necessary journalistic credentials,” The Frontier Manipur executive editor Paojel Chaoba told RSF. “She was not given any explanation for not being allowed to enter the assembly. It was a shoot-first-ask-questions-later situation.” Even talking about press freedom is becoming problematic. After Wangkem dedicated the “Khanesi Neinasi” programme on 16 February to freedom of expression, it was threatened with judicial proceedings on 1 March. Manipur’s state government thereby became the first in India to take advantage of a new federal code of conduct for online content that gives local officials extensive powers to restrict press freedom.
