Why I’d invest in FTSE 100 shares in an ISA today despite the risk of a second market crash

first_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 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. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. The FTSE 100 may have rebounded from its 2020 low, but the prospect of a second market crash could persist over the coming months. Risks continue to face the world economy’s growth prospects. Investor sentiment could also weaken if expectations regarding a recovery fail to be met.Despite this, now could be an opportunity to buy cheap large-cap shares in an ISA for the long run. In many cases, their current valuations suggest that they offer wide margins of safety. And with the unpredictability of stock market’s performance, long-term investors may wish to take advantage of low valuations while they’re still on offer.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 second market crashA second FTSE 100 stock market crash would not come as a major surprise to many investors. Although lockdown measures have started to be eased, there’s no guarantee the coronavirus will be contained over the coming months. Therefore, the operating environment for many businesses may continue to be challenging. This could cause investor sentiment to weaken and share prices to fall.Furthermore, the UK and US economies may be impacted by political risks over the next six months. The US election and Brexit could weigh on investor sentiment. Those events could represent change that causes investors to readjust their forecasts. As such, share prices could fail to take into account an increasingly uncertain outlook for the world economy.Buying FTSE 100 shares todayDespite the risks facing the FTSE 100, buying high-quality stocks in an ISA today could be a profitable move over the long run. In many cases, the stock market’s valuations reflect a forecast sustained period of weak growth for many companies. And, while the index itself may have rebounded from its March lows, a significant number of its members continue to trade at exceptionally low price levels. Indeed, they’re levels that haven’t been seen for many years.Therefore, with the stock market’s prospects being unpredictable, buying stocks today and holding them for the long run could be a shrewd move. Although there’s the potential for a second market crash, there’s also a chance the stock market will deliver further growth and will fail to return to the low price levels it posted earlier in the year.Buying high-quality stocksOf course, buying FTSE 100 stocks that can survive short-term challenges could be vital to any long-term investor’s success. If a company cannot overcome difficult operating conditions due to a weak balance sheet, for example, it will fail to benefit from the index’s likely long-term recovery.Therefore, focusing your capital on the strongest businesses in a sector could improve your risk/reward opportunity. This may boost your chances of surviving a second market crash, as well as allowing you to take advantage of the index’s next sustained bull market.

Each one of these charities fought hard for their share of this benefaction. Success in securing a proportionally larger slice than others greatly depends on the sophistication applied to precision fundraising strategies. Whilst many people regularly give small amounts; opportunities to secure much larger donations from wealthy supporters are hidden amongst charities donor records, but not anymore!The MID-AS database has been developed from public domain information and is the largest and broadest UK wealth intelligence database available. MID-AS offers a clear division of 250,000 High Net Worth and wealthy people, into six segments and contains extensive researched factual information on people typically worth not less than £1m (excluding property).“Matrix-Data have for many years specialised in collecting and aggregating stock market transactions, with specific focus on wealth accumulation and tax benefits taken by investors. With our information merged with Prospecting for Gold’s specialist research data, we have created the most thorough, factual and dependable resource to discover hidden wealth within charities Non-Profit supporter files and help them prospect for more.Today the database holds a raft of information and intelligence and is growing by some 800 millionaires per month. MID-AS truly is a landmark resource with years of research appended to it and will give those targeting the wealthy, the tools to really understand the affluent segment of British society.”Comments Ian Beaumont, Managing Director of Matrix-Data Ltd.The data and sources behind MID-ASIn brief, both Matrix-Data and Prospecting For Gold have co existed for many years with very specialised data resources, each focusing on their specific markets. Each having built market-leading databases of unique value.For Matrix-Data Ltd, the Financial Services industry has for years used “investor intelligence” to focus with precision on groups of wealthy private investors, to raise new funds, support existing ones or invest in new ventures.Prospecting For Gold has exclusively served the Not-for-Profit and Charity sector as the primary provider of very detailed and extensive research into wealthy people. For all major capital appeal campaigns, such information is fundamental background knowledge.The ‘Light Bulb’ moment occurred when both organisations discovered that the overlap of records in each database was extremely significant. Where Prospecting for Gold had researched philanthropic propensity for the very wealthy, Matrix-Data had 20 years of investment history in a myriad of markets and stocks. Clearly the union of both these databases would create “qualification” and much greater inclusion of all wealthy UK citizens.

Disabled artists and activists fight for minimum wage equality

first_imgOne of multiple protests in 2012 of Goodwill Industries paying subminimum wages to employees with disabilities.Brooklyn, N.Y.  — The Fair Wages Task Force began its campaign to eliminate subminimum wages for disabled workers at a town hall event at the Brooklyn Museum on Oct. 21. October is Disability Employment Awareness Month. Fully 65 percent of workers with disabilities are unemployed!An audience of over 150 disabled artists, activists and their supporters  held a lively discussion on the problems encountered by disabled artists.  Frequently institutions which show their work ask them to set up the display and, in the case of paintings, hang them. The artists would like the institutions to include a fee for their work in the overall budget. When the artwork of the disabled artist is displayed, they are not generally paid. However, their work deserves fair compensation, and artists should not be unpaid because they happen to be disabled.Artists, including a painter, an actor and a performance artist, discussed the need for education of the audience and education of the general public to promote real inclusion in modern culture.Cultural workers such as sign language interpreters are skilled not only in signing the words but also in acting them out with appropriate facial expressions.  It’s a draining profession, so there are usually two interpreters who change places, so one can take a rest. Likewise, caption writers bring insights to an audience of the hearing impaired.Decades of struggle for inclusion in fair wagesA Fair Wages Task Force spokesperson with emotional and hearing loss disabilities began the event with an announcement of the campaign the coalition is waging to mandate minimum wage for disabled workers. Currently, under the U.S. Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938, employers can request a waiver to not pay the minimum wage to many categories of workers, including disabled workers. Some employers pay 22 cents an hour, sell their product at market rate and pay executives six-figure salaries.The National Federation of the Blind, formed in 1940, has fought for decades to correct this injustice. The states of New Hampshire and Maryland and the city of Seattle have passed such laws, and Alaska’s Department of Labor has issued an order granting minimum wage rights to disabled people. But 47 states and the federal government still have not granted disabled people minimum wage equity. This includes New York, where the Fair Wages Task Force is concentrating its immediate efforts with a petition and legislation campaign.The Task Force speaker related how one of the first acts of the Hitler regime in Germany, which murdered many millions for the crime of being different, occurred on July 14, 1933. The “Law for the Prevention of Progeny with Hereditary Diseases” was instituted, which called for the mandatory sterilization of all people with diseases considered hereditary. It specified many disabilities including mental illness. One of the Nazis’ big lies was that people with disabilities were of “less value.”The speaker pointed out that another big lie spread by employers who pay disabled people subminimum wages is that giving disabled people the minimum wage will take away jobs and benefits for them. In fact, where minimum wage equity laws have been passed, efforts have been successful to not only protect the jobs and benefits of disabled people but also improve them.The speaker, a member of a New York City public sector workers union’s Committee on People with Disabilities, drew the applause of the audience when he stated, “Just as women and minorities are protected from discrimination in wages by the Equal Pay Act of 1963 and the Civil Rights Act of 1964, we workers with disabilities need protection against wage discrimination too. We invoke the slogan of the labor movement: ‘An Injury to One Is an Injury to All.’  If even one disabled worker in the U.S. is paid a subminimum wage, then all U.S. workers are injured!”The message: inclusionThe message was clear: inclusion. It’s not a difficult goal to achieve, but it is often overlooked. When disabled people are included, they are often underpaid or not paid at all.Educators are critical in developing this understanding of inclusion. Teachers can bring this message to their students.  One teacher said he thought it made him a better teacher when disabled students were mainstreamed into his classes and he had to redevelop his curriculum to make it instructive for all his students.The second half of the town hall was the presentation of artworks created by the panelists. There was a series of paintings, followed by a short, silent, black-and-white video that was particularly thought-provoking. It was a video of a man pushing against an immovable wall. He would brace himself, push against the wall, and nothing happened. He would change his position, dig in his heels and push a little harder, but the wall still didn’t fall.  He squared his shoulders, widened his stance and pushed again, and the wall stood firm.It was a metaphor for many things — the struggle of people with disabilities to be included in mainstream society, the struggle of the Puerto Rican people for independence, in short, any quest which is difficult to attain —  you supply the metaphor.The final performance was a poem delivered by a disabled author entitled “We All Pile Up.” The poem included: “At the gas station, we all pile up. At the gas station, we all pile up.” And then he crumpled up a piece of paper and tossed it on the floor. He continued with different locations, crumpling up other pieces of paper and tossing them on the floor, where they all piled up.Ableist bosses and their friends in government should take notice: Disabled workers and artists are not willing to let the injustices committed against them just pile up!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Awesome Pig Adventure Opens at Fair Oaks

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Awesome Pig Adventure Opens at Fair Oaks By Andy Eubank – Aug 5, 2013 Awesome Pig Adventure Opens at Fair Oaks SHARE Pig Adventure openDuring the grand opening of the Pig Adventure at Fair Oaks Farms young visitors gave the name Bacon Jeffrey to a piglet they met and learned all about. And that is just part of the adventure waiting at the brand new, state of the art facility. Adults were in awe and kids had a great time Monday, and pork producer and Indiana Pork board member Brian Martin said even his fellow producers will benefit from a visit.“This destination is set up for anybody, whether they have zero knowledge of the pork or pig industry or they spend their living doing,” Martin told HAT. “There is new technology here that has not existed and is not prevalent everywhere else, so everyone can learn something coming to this destination.”Belstra Milling built and operates Legacy Farms, the actual working pig operation that consumers can see through the glass, a first of its kind. Belstra president Malcolm DeKryger was quite emotional on the day the dream and hard work came to fruition.“I hope you really enjoy legacy. I think it is a one of a kind place. I wish I could take about half an hour and name all the people who helped us build it. Many of you are in the crowd and many of you will always be unnamed, but there is so much that has made this thing special.”Fair Oaks Farms CEO Gary Corbett says the educational and entertainment venue will help visitors learn many facets of farming, such as “how farmers are working together to protect the environment; how farmers are utilizing their respect and humane treatment for the animals they have under their care and responsibility, and to understand the myriad of practices that we go through every day to ensure that we have the safest food supply in the world. We also hope to be an environment for dialogue between that 99 percent of U.S. citizens that don’t make their living from production agriculture. I was telling the Lt. Governor that I saw a statistic last week that there are now more people incarcerated in prisons than there are who make their living from production agriculture.”And that’s the proof that the one percent in production agriculture should seize the chance to dialogue with the other 99 percent who have drifted away through the generations.Indiana Lt. Governor Sue Ellspermann was present Monday, and expressed her excitement about a new Indiana attraction that impacts each of her 3 areas of responsibility, agriculture, tourism and rural affairs.Fair Oaks Farms is in Jasper County at exit 220 on I-65 and is open from 9-5 central time seven days a week.

7 former Horned Frogs hope to hear name called in NFL draft this weekend

first_imgReddIt Twitter Taylor’s monster slam highlights big weekend for TCU Athletics printReceiver Jalen Reagor (1) explodes to the end zone on a punt return against West Virginia in TCU’s 2019 season finale. Photo by Heesoo YangThis weekend, seven former football standouts are hoping to receive the life-changing phone call that signifies the culmination of a life dedicated to football.The 2020 NFL draft will take place April 23-25, with all seven rounds occurring via video conference due to the COVID-19 pandemic.While the record for most TCU players drafted in one year is eight (1957), this year may see the most Horned Frogs selected since that date.Here’s a list of those representing Fort Worth in the draft and where they have the potential to get taken.Jeff Gladney (cornerback): first or second roundKnown for his quick thinking, Gladney got better each of the years he spent in purple and white. In 2019, the senior earned a spot on the All-Big 12 First Team with 31 tackles, a pick and a conference-leading 14 pass breakups.Jeff Gladney celebrates an incomplete pass attempt by Ohio State in 2018. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSotoGladney only helped his cause at the NFL combine, running a 4.48 40-yard dash and posting a vertical jump of 37.5 inches. He represents a strong, athletic corner that can run toe-to-toe with just about any receiver. The most recent mock drafts from CBS Sports and Bleacher Report each have the corner going late in the first round to teams that need immediate secondary help like the Raiders or the Vikings.2. Jalen Reagor (wide receiver): first or second roundHeading into the 2019 season, you couldn’t say “TCU football” without bringing up receiver Jalen Reagor. The former Waxahachie, Texas, standout raised eyebrows with a 2018 campaign among the best in Horned Frog history (1,061 yards and 11 touchdowns). While 2019 saw Reagor’s stats dip, he saw a catchable pass on just 61.4% of his targets (ranks 118th among 120 receivers).Despite running just a 4.47 40-yard dash at the combine, Reagor has shown that he can run as fast as in the 4.2s. His speed will land him as already one of the fastest wideouts in football. That, matched with his crisp route-running and ability to be used anywhere in an offense, could see him going late in the first round. Bleacher Report shows him going with the 30th-overall pick to Green Bay, so don’t be surprised if we see Jalen Reagor catching dimes from Aaron Rodgers this fall.3. Ross Blacklock (defensive tackle): first or second roundAfter dropping 25 pounds while sidelined for an injury his entire sophomore season, Ross Blacklock came back to form in 2019. The junior posted 40 tackles and 3.5 sacks, earning All-Big 12 First Team honors. A few months later, he ran a 4.9 40-yard dash and broad jumped 107 inches, reinforcing his explosive nature.While most of the latest mock drafts leave Blacklock out of the first round, his potential to bolster an already-established defensive line keeps him in contention for a call on Thursday night. Regardless, he should get scooped up in one of the first 60 picks and will likely see sizeable playing time as a rookie.4. Lucas Niang (right tackle): third or fourth roundLucas Niang burst onto the scene for TCU as a junior in 2018 after grabbing a starting spot during his sophomore year. He started all 13 games for TCU at right tackle in 2018, earning All-Big 12 Second Team honors. Unfortunately, Niang only appeared in seven contests in 2019 before hip surgery ended his career as a Frog.While NFL analyst Lance Zierlein reports that Niang looked “slower” in 2019 at 315 pounds, the tackle often makes up for that deficiency with his high football IQ. In his 28 starts at TCU, Niang never gave up a sack and was only called for two holding penalties. Look for him to go as early as the third or as late as even the fifth to a team looking to groom a future starter.Darius Anderson (6) takes a carry against West Virginia in 2019. Photo by Heesoo Yang5. Darius Anderson (running back): sixth or seventh roundNo one on the TCU football roster had a better start to 2019 than running back Darius Anderson. The Richmond, Texas, native rushed for 483 yards and five touchdowns in TCU’s first four games of the season. While his season slowed down significantly from there, he lead the team in rushing with 823 yards and an All-Big 12 Honorable Mention.Anderson ran a 4.61 40-yard dash at the combine, but his 93-yard touchdown in 2018 against Ohio State is proof enough that he has the speed to gain separation around the edge. On the other hand, his ability to make sharp cuts and avoid big hits is in need of major improvement. This will likely lead to him being picked late, but he will certainly be able to see the field in his first year.6. Sewo Olonilua (running back): sixth or seventh roundThe biggest moment of Sewo Olonilua’s career came when everyone around him struggled to get it together — the 2018 Cheez-It Bowl. The then-junior put up 194 yards and a score to earn the offensive MVP honors. As a senior, he provided a strong red-zone threat for Gary Patterson’s Frogs, leading the team with eight scores on the ground (plus one receiving).Olonilua’s 25 bench press reps at the combine raised eyebrows, but teams would like to see him slim down (232 lbs) and improve his explosiveness. While he shows loads of NFL potential, the bruiser will likely need to work his way up before seeing significant time on the field.7. Cordel Iwuagwu (left guard): free agent An All-Big 12 Honorable Mention in 2019, Cordel Iwuagwu started all 12 games as a senior at left guard. Though he did the same in 2017, his 2016 and 2018 campaigns saw him miss a combined 12 games due to injury, raising concerns as to his consistency.Overall, Iwuagwu shows enough success at the Big 12 level to be picked up by a franchise soon after the draft, but his lack of speed and size will likely prevent him from being drafted. + posts Linkedin Linkedin Previous articleHoroscope: April 22, 2020Next articleBlanket Coverage Podcast – 2019/20 NFL Exit Interviews Episode 111 – Patriots, Saints, Vikings Colin Post RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Another series win lands TCU Baseball in the top 5, earns Sikes conference award Another series win lands TCU Baseball in the top 5, earns Sikes conference award Colin Post is a Sports Broadcasting and Journalism double-major from Houston, Texas.

It was dismissed on the ground that the plea was vague and the fee hike cannot be termed as oppressive or arbitrary. Given the absence of any grounds warranting an interference of the Court order of dismissal was passed on lack of merits. The petition was filed by the students of NIFT seeking writ of mandamus for setting aside the fee hike circulars as arbitrary and oppressive. It also sought appropriate directions from the court demanding disclosure of the details of the process undertaken for approving the said fee hike and whether the same was in accordance with the Institute’s established procedural requirements. Ld. Counsel for the petitioners argued that system of fee hike is erroneous and it suffers from lack of transparency. Reliance was placed on clause 5(1) of the National Institute of Fashion Technology Academic Programmes Ordinances 2012 to argue that there was no clarity as to whether the said procedure had been complied with by respondent after obtaining approval of the Board on the recommendation of the Senate or instructions of the Central Government etc. Need for greater transparency was urged by placing reliance on the balance sheet for the financial year ending 31.03.2019 of the Institute recording profits. It was also brought to the attention of the court that an attempt was made to seek information through RTI application but no information was diverged by the respondent institute. Upon perusal of the communications placed on record it was brought to the attention of the court that although, every year NIFT enhances the fee to mitigate the expenses, in view of the ongoing pandemic this year and with due regard to the economic slowdown in the industry NIFT had considered granting reduction in the tuition fee hike by 5% for the Semester July-December, 2020 as per semester mentioned except for NRI students. Furthermore, to ease the pressure of lump sum payment, the students will be allowed to pay the fee in 3 installments and also be exempted from late fee fine for this semester. On the basis of the arguments and perusal of communications and circulars issued by NIFT the court dismissed the petition on ground of lack of merit and lack of substance to hold the fee hike as arbitrary and oppressive. The petitioners were represented by Advs. Abhik Chimni and Mayank Goyal. The respondents were represented by Adv. Ruchir Mishra.
