I’d forget a Cash ISA and buy FTSE 100 stocks today Image source: Getty Images. See all posts by Peter Stephens The uncertain outlook of the FTSE 100 may convince many investors that now is the right time to seek refuge in a Cash ISA, rather than in large-cap stocks. Risks such as coronavirus, political challenges in the US and the ongoing uncertainty surrounding Brexit could combine to cause a significant amount of volatility for investors in 2020.However, the worries and fears being felt by many investors at the present time could present long-term buying opportunities. Many FTSE 100 stocks currently trade on highly appealing valuations – especially when their growth prospects are taken into account.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…As such, now could be the right time to avoid the low returns available from a Cash ISA and buy FTSE 100 shares with £3,000, or any other amount.Buying opportunitiesWhile the FTSE 100 could move lower if the aforementioned risks increase in size, in many cases its members’ valuations incorporate wide margins of safety that factor in the prospect of a challenging outlook. This could present numerous buying opportunities for investors who have a long-term outlook, since they may be able to purchase high-quality stocks while they trade at discounts to their intrinsic values.The track record of the FTSE 100 shows that it has always been able to stage a successful recovery from its downturns. For example, it halved during the global financial crisis, and yet has traded at a record high within the past few years. In fact, since its inception 36 years ago, the index has recorded an annualised total return of 9%, despite experiencing numerous recessions, bear markets and major economic challenges that, at the time, caused many investors to seek lower-risk assets.Therefore, even if there are more challenging months ahead this year, long-term investors are likely to benefit from the bright growth potential which major economies such as the US and China may face over the coming years. As such, buying stocks while other investors are seeking to reduce their portfolio risk could be a shrewd move.A challenging futureBy contrast, holding cash could continue to be a difficult experience over the coming years. There are currently little, if any, signs that a prolonged period of interest rate rises is ahead in the UK. In fact, two of the Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee members voted for an interest rate cut in the most recent meeting, with their colleagues determining that interest rates should be held close to their record low.With inflation being below the Bank of England’s target and the economic prospects being opaque due in part to Brexit, low interest rates could remain in place over the medium term. In such a scenario, investing in the FTSE 100 could offer a significantly higher rate of return which improves your financial situation to a larger extent than having a Cash ISA.

Organizing against police brutality in Boston

first_imgBy Queen-Cheyenne and Leighsandra SheppardThis talk was jointly read at the June 4 Workers World Party webinar on “It is right to rebel against police terror.” Before we begin, we just want to inform everyone that we will be discussing police and military violence and our experiences on the grounds in Boston thus far.Leighsandra and Queen-Cheyenne speak at Boston Black History Month forum. Photo: Stevan KirschbaumOurselves, Greater Boston Marxist Association members, and volunteers have been on the ground not only in Boston, but around Greater Boston, nearly every day this week. Not only to attend the protests in solidarity, but to hand out care packages of protest supplies such as personal protective equipment, water/snacks and hand sanitizer.While we have experienced unprecedented amounts of unity, demonstrations and solidarity efforts led by folks in all different facets of the communities — such as the demonstration led by a primarily Black youth group, “Black Boston,” Black Lives Matter March on Blue Hills Avenue and Mass Action Against Police Brutality March to Dudley Square — our members have also witnessed and experienced the violence and terror heightened and incited by the military and police.During the Mass Action Against Police Brutality March on May 30 from Washington Street to Dudley Square Park across from the police stations, surveillance during this protest was extremely heavy — with police and journalists on the roof of the police station to take pictures of protests throughout the demonstration.Protesters were showing solidarity by holding up signs for Black, Muslim and People of Color protesters throughout the demonstration, but journalists and police kept rotating surveillance on the roof.Boston has been a heavy surveillance city for many years now, but specifically since the induction 2014-17; Boston along with Los Angeles and New York City were the first to implement the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures pilot programs, PEACE Program (Promoting Engagement Acceptance & Community Empowerment) and other CVE-backed programs targeting primarily Black and Muslim youth in Boston, focusing solely on Islamic and Black “extremists.”Many of the communities most impacted by military presence and police brutality are primarily Black and/or Muslim in Boston; they are also the primary organizers (specifically the May 31 protest) for many of these demonstrations and are in the most vulnerable of situations right now.Protesters were initially met with force by the Boston Police Department in front of the state house on May 31 when at 9:30 p.m. hundreds of protesters were gathered in the street. Three police cruisers sped down the street at more than 60 miles per hour hoping to intimidate and possibly cause harm to us.Shortly afterward, when we made an attempt to go home, it was quickly realized that the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority was shut down,  Trains were not making stops in areas that were in close proximity to downtown.People began to grow fearful, as we had seen that the police had barricaded us within the downtown area, cutting off access to the side streets of Tremont, Boylston, Beacon and Park. With over a hundred people stuck in their positions, Boston police began to disperse tear gas into the crowd, beat protesters with their batons and mace them. Around 10:30 p.m., the National Guard began to arrive with heavily armed soldiers and tanks. Deploying even more tear gas, mace and,  this time, rubber bullets, soldiers and the police initiated much physical and mental harm to the protesters on the grounds that night.Terrifying military and cop surveillanceWhile scouting the #Black Lives Matter Protest in Boston Common on June 3 to get a visual of the extent of the military and police presence, we witnessed that the police, not having enough manpower, called in officers from other areas of Massachusetts, including from Billerica, Malden, Newton and other local cities.They called in the support of the National Guard, who are heavily armed and stationed on every corner within downtown Boston. While doing this, we came to realize incredibly quickly that many officers on the scene had covered their badge numbers with no incentive as to why. Although there was no physical violence at the hands of the police at this particular protest, there was a terrifying amount of military and cop surveillance taking place.The fire of the revolutionary movement is taking place across the nation, being supported by our brothers, sisters and comrades abroad. Not only are they standing in solidarity with the Black Liberation movement, but are fighting on the ground alongside us, uplifting our voices and emphasizing the importance of the larger global struggle.Nicolás Maduro, the president of Venezuela and a voice in the Bolivarian Revolution, recently said, “On behalf of the Venezuelan people, I express our solidarity with the family of George Floyd, the African-American community, and the American people who are fighting for equality and justice.”A cry goes out from U.S. cities: “No more racism.” The movement and the people are making their voices heard.Queen-Cheyenne is an organizer and educator based in Greater Boston. With a degree in sociology with a concentration in youth and community from Suffolk University, her work and interest center around frameworks of restorative justice, popular education, Islamic Liberation theology and Marxist theory. As co-lead organizer and co-founder of the Greater Boston Marxist Association, she dedicates her efforts to organizing solidarity work and community care.Leighsandra Sheppard is a community organizer and educator based in the Massachusetts/Greater Boston area. Originally, Sheppard is from Lowell, Mass., a city located about 30 minutes north of Boston. She is co-founder and co-president of a newly founded local community organization, the Greater Boston Marxist Association, whose work is dedicated to efforts regarding community care, as well as the education and practice of Marxist-Leninist and Maoist theory.Email GB[email protected] Go to Boston Mutual Aid Fund at tinyurl.com/ybdqjvhb/. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Bill Introduced to Improve Rail Transportation

first_img Bill Introduced to Improve Rail Transportation Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Sep 11, 2014 Previous articleRFA Calls on EPA Leader to Address Regulations Hindering E15Next articleWho is the stupid one Gary Truitt Home Indiana Agriculture News Bill Introduced to Improve Rail Transportation A bipartisan bill introduced in the Senate would improve the functioning of the Surface Transportation Board, as according to the National Farmers Union. Senate bill 2777, The Surface Transportation Board Reauthorization Act of 2014,” would establish STB as an independent agency, streamline rate case procedures, give STB limited investigative authority, and codify arbitration procedures for disputes between shippers and railroads.  The bill was introduced by South Dakota Republican Senator John Thune and West Virginia Democrat Jay Rockefeller. Doug Sombke, chairman of NFU’s legislative committee and president of South Dakota Farmers Union, called the bill a hopeful move to bring more congressional oversight.  In the upper Midwest, where shipping by rail is often the only option for the region’s farmers, rail transportation is months behind schedule, resulting in farmers and cooperatives being assessed hefty fines for late deliveries. In South Dakota, some farmers have already been forced to pile wheat on the ground because elevators can’t accept the increased liability. At one particular elevator, 3 million of the yearly 15 million bushels of grain will not move before this year’s harvest begins. Facebook Twitter SHARE SHARElast_img read more

Saturday. The team swept the San Diego State University Aztecs before falling to the University of San Diego Toreros.The team’s victory over San Diego State Saturday afternoon marked the first time the team had ever swept its first five opponents of the season. The team had previously broken the record on Friday when the Frogs swept Dartmouth College for four straight sweeps to begin the year.The Frogs recorded 42 kills in the match against the Aztecs. They were led by junior Jillian Bergeson who totaled 12 kills.“In the first set at the end, Jillian just absolutely put the team on her back and just ran with it,” TCU Director of Volleyball Jill Kramer said. “She did a good job there.”Senior Blaire Pickens also had a strong outing with eight kills in the match.Kramer praised her team for being able to execute necessary adjustments throughout the match.“We had to mix up what we were doing and move the ball around really well to score,” Kramer said. “I think their outside hitters really started to pick apart our defense, so this match for us was the first time that we had to make true adjustments this season during the match, which I thought the team did a really good job of that.”The Frogs’ winning streak would came to a halt when they were swept by the No. 23 University of San Diego Toreros just hours after defeating San Diego State.The Frogs’ offense struggled, recording only 26 kills during the match.Junior Ashley Smith had the strongest performance among TCU players in the loss, tallying eight kills, five blocks, and six digs against the Toreros.“I think tonight we played a very good San Diego team at home and I think they came out really strong, served tough, blocked and defended well and our passing game broke down really early which affected us offensively,” Kramer said.Kramer added that the team could use improvement handling adversity.We struggled rebounding from that and we need to get better at that,” Kramer said. “We need to get better at dealing with some adversity. We have really been taking it to teams and putting pressure on them and tonight, San Diego did a really good job of serving the ball to the same players all night long.”The Frogs exit the weekend sitting at 5-1 on the season and will return to action next weekend when they compete in the Allstate Sugar Bowl Collegiate Classic in New Orleans from Sept. 11-12.
