Certainly, there have been signs of a recovery in recent trading sessions. But as previous bear markets have shown, mini-rallies can soon end, and the general downward trend may yet continue.Despite this, the long-term prospects for the FTSE 100 seems to be encouraging. Its members trade on low valuations in many cases, while the index’s track record of recovery suggests that now could be the right time to buy a diverse range of companies for the long run.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…An uncertain futureClearly, the prospects for the world economy are highly uncertain at the present time. The number of coronavirus cases and deaths are, sadly, continuing to rise. Not only is there a huge human cost, the economic impact of coronavirus is set to be vast.The lockdown is likely to cause many businesses in a wide range of sectors to experience hugely challenging periods. They may take time to recover, while some companies may be unable to survive even with government support programmes. As such, the coming months could prove to be a risky period for investors, with sentiment towards stocks likely to change swiftly without prior warning. This could lead to significant paper losses for many investors.Low valuationsThe valuations on offer across the FTSE 100 suggest that the stock market has priced in many of the risks facing the economy. Some FTSE 100 stocks, for example, trade at prices that have not been lower since the financial crisis. This indicates that they offer wide margins of safety that could provide significant scope for recoveries in the coming years.For those businesses that have solid balance sheets, in terms of modest debt and large cash positions, the current economic challenges could present an opportunity. They may be more likely to survive than their smaller, less financially-sound peers. They could, therefore, win market share and put themselves in a stronger position to generate rising net profit in the long run.As such, focusing on stronger businesses could be a sound move at the present time. They may not be the cheapest stocks around, since their risks are relatively low. But in many cases, they still offer exceptionally good value for money.Recovery potentialThe FTSE 100’s recovery may seem to be somewhat unlikely at the present time. The index has a long way back to its record highs, and it is likely to take many months for it to deliver a turnaround.However, the index has a solid track record of recovery. It has produced new record highs following every one of its past bear markets, and a similar outcome to the current crisis seems likely.Therefore, buying high-quality stocks now and holding them for the long run could be a profitable move. Paper losses may be ahead in the short run, but the FTSE 100’s recovery prospects in the coming years seem to be high.

Wildlife Trusts’ 30 Days Wild challenge increases happiness, study shows

About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001. She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. The Wildlife Trusts are again running their annual nature challenge 30 Days Wild, with third-party research showing a link between the challenge and happiness levels in participants.The Wildlife Trusts‘ challenge encourages people to do something wild every day for the month of June and notice the nature on their doorsteps. It saw 250,000 people take part in 2017. Since 2015, academics at the University of Derby have monitored the challenge with results showing that spending time in nature increases happiness and wellbeing.The University’s study of 30 Days Wild 2017 saw 8442 people participate in an evaluation looking at engagement with natural beauty (EWNB), and nature connection, health, happiness and conservation behaviours before the challenge started, after 30 days and after three months. It found sustained and significant increases for scores in nature connection, health, happiness and conservation behaviours. In addition, it found 30 Days Wild to increase EWNB, with links between this increase and the reported increases in nature connectedness and happiness.Dr Miles Richardson, Director of Psychology, University of Derby said:“Over the past three years we’ve repeatedly found that taking part in 30 Days Wild improves health, happiness, nature connection and conservation behaviours. Now we’ve discovered that engagement with the beauty of nature is part of that story.“Tuning in to the everyday beauty of nature becomes part of a journey which connects us more deeply to the natural world. As people’s appreciation of natural beauty increases, so does their happiness. We respond to beauty – it restores us and balances our emotions. This, in turn, encourages people to do more to help wildlife and take action for nature.”The latest set of results from the study of 30 Days Wild also shows that the benefits of the challenge last well after the month has ended, with indications that the beneficial impact of taking part could last as long as a year.People can now sign up to take part in 2018’s 30 Days Wild. Free packs will be sent to the first 50,000 people who sign up and there is also a digital pack available as well as a phone app that will deliver daily ideas and Random Acts of Wildness.Main image copyright: Nick Upton, for The Wildlife Trusts.

In fact, when home sellers include transit keywords, the lowest priced three-quarters of listings sell for an average premium of 4.2%  more than similar listings without transit keywords. In contrast, the top quarter sees an average price penalty of 10.5%.The report indicated that the share of L.A. County listings that mentioned transit-related keywords rose from 2.3% in 2013 to 4.5% in 2018. And while that is still a small fraction of the keywords used for home searches, the report said that the rise coincides with “ongoing improvements in the city’s transit network.”Los Angeles has been actively promoting alternatives to private automobiles, and mobility in and around the city in recent years with L.A. taxpayers pledging $120 billion toward expanding public transit.Breaking down the type of keywords that mention public transport, the report said that rail represented a disproportionate and growing share of transit keywords. In fact, rail keywords appeared in 1.5% of all listings in 2013 and 3.7% in 2018, while bus mentions have remained stable (0.8% of listings in both 2013 and 2018).The highest densities of listings mentioning transit also track closely with the routes of L.A.s Metro lines. One of the possible reasons for this surge in listings close to metro lines, according to the report could because the city’s “Gold and Expo Lines’ recent expansions have made these routes, and the system at large, more useful.”The report noted that as a share of total listings, references to the Gold Line far outstripped all others from 2013 to 2018. Over the same period, the Expo Line’s share of total listings has grown fastest. Metro’s upcoming Regional Connecter project aims to further integrate the existing transit lines.Click here to read the full report.

US World War II veteran receives France’s medal of honor on D-Day anniversary

first_imgABC News(NORMANDY, France) — Before this week, Stan Friday had not been back to Normandy, France, since he and Allied forces stormed its beaches to liberate Europe from Nazi Germany. For years, the World War II veteran would not talk about what he’d seen 75 years ago on June 6, 1944, also known as D-Day.This week, Friday, 96, of Pennsborg, Pennsylvania, packed his things, however, and then traveled with a group of U.S. World War II veterans to Normandy for the 75th anniversary of D-Day as the world and its leaders prepared to honor them and pay tribute to the fallen.And, in a surprise to Friday on Thursday, French President Emmanuel Macron awarded him and four other U.S. veterans the Legion d’honneur, France’s highest award for merit.“We know what we owe to you, veterans,” said Macron who marked the anniversary with U.S. President Donald Trump.”Our freedom. On behalf of my nation, I just want to say thank you.”On D-Day, Friday was F-5, 3rd Army, 80th division. An Army scout, Friday went far out ahead of the rest after D-Day to scope out the danger and witnessed two Nazi concentration camps before they were liberated.More than 156,000 Allied troops came ashore that fateful day and more than 4,000 had been killed as they reached 50 miles of Normandy coastline. Of the Allied troops who’d died on D-Day, 2,501 were Americans, including Friday’s friend.“The medic that took care of him before he died wanted to know if I was all right, while he was dying,” Friday told ABC News. “That’s how close we were.”Friday fought all through France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany and Austria. He was also charged with being ahead of the division, locating enemy troops, obstacles and determining enemy strength. He had a few hand-to-hand combat experiences and did many nighttime missions.Friday, who grew up in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, and had also been given a Bronze Star, said the French honor was for all the brothers he’d lost in the war.Friday told ABC News on Thursday that the moment had been “thrilling, like a dream.”“The medal part is (for) the guys that’s out there. They’re the heroes. …. I represent them,” he said.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Sea lion pup trapped in plastic ribbon freed by SeaWorld San Diego specialists

first_imgSeaWorld via KGTV(SAN DIEGO) — Animal rescuers from SeaWorld San Diego freed a sea lion pup trapped in plastic ribbon, and captured the release on video.The sea lion had what appears to be plastic packing or shipping ribbon wrapped around its neck at Boomer’s Beach in La Jolla, California, animal care specialist for Sea World Brooke Hubbard told ABC San Diego affiliate KGTV.“When there’s lining around its neck, it can constrict their airways as well as their esophagus, making it so they can’t breathe, working overtime,” Hubbard said.Video taken on Saturday by one of the rescuers shows them sneaking up on the pup before they throw a net around it, and cut the ribbon off with scissors.After the sea lion was freed, it barked, turned back over on its stomach and scuttled back into the Pacific Ocean.“That’s the best feeling in the world, especially since we didn’t have to bring it back here and rehabilitate it,” Hubbard said.The team had been tracking the 2 to 3-year-old sea lion for a few days before they found an opportunity to help it. Saturday happened to be World Ocean Day.“Today was amazing!” Hubbard said.Hubbard reminded beach-goers to always pick up their trash, adding that rescuers see plastic on the beach every time they go out on a mission.“Please don’t litter at the beach,” she said. “Be able to pick up your trash anywhere you go.”Sea World did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Councils told to improve safety record

first_imgCouncil chief executives are being urged to improve health and safetystandards following the release of figures that show fatalities in localauthority workplaces have increased. Bill Callaghan, chairman of the Health & Safety Commission, has writtento all local authorities calling for the chief executives to take a hands-oninterest in their safety record after research showed that staff deaths rosefrom 32 to 44 during the period 1999 to 2000. The research by the HSC also showed that safety inspections have dropped byover a quarter in the past five years. The number of full-time local authorityenforcement officers also fell by 8 per cent to 1,110 between 1999 and 2000. Callaghan said, “An effective local authority regulatory service,committed to local improvements in health and safety from business isessential.” The HSC is also considering if it should investigate those authorities thatcontinue to divert resources away from health and safety considerations. Keith Handley, president of Socpo, said, “The responsibility foremployee health and safety is a key aspect for local authority employers andthey should ignore it at their peril. “Reducing the numbers of health and safety officers may be considered a‘soft option’, but it is an extremely misguided one.” The figures show there was a reduction in the number of overall reportedinjuries from 39,655 to 32,693 between 1999 and 2000. www.hse.gov.uk Related posts:No related photos.

Harvard’s Amaker finalist for 2014 Ben Jobe Award

first_imgHarvard men’s basketball head coach Tommy Amaker has been named a finalist for the 2014 Ben Jobe Award, presented annually to the top minority coach in Division I men’s basketball.This marks the fourth straight year that Amaker has been named a finalist for the award. The winner will be announced at the CollegeInsider.com Awards Banquet on April 4 in Dallas, site of the Division I Men’s Basketball Championship.Amaker led Harvard to a fourth straight Ivy League championship in 2013-14, making the Crimson the first Ancient Eight program to win four consecutive titles since Penn did so from 1993-96. With a 27-5 overall record, Harvard also became the first Ivy program to register five consecutive 20-win seasons since Penn did it a record six times from 1970-75.The Crimson’s season concluded at the NCAA tournament where for the second year in a row it reached the third round. Harvard, the No. 12 seed in the East Region, advanced with a 61-57 win over fifth-seeded Cincinnati, and nearly upset fourth-seeded Michigan State to advance to the Sweet 16. This was the third straight trip to the Big Dance for the Crimson, and its fifth consecutive postseason appearance overall.Among the many accomplishments of this year’s team, Harvard set new program records for wins in a season (27) and Ivy League wins (13), and matched the program mark for non-conference victories (14). The Crimson was rewarded with six selections to the All-Ivy League teams, equaling the conference record for most honorees in a season, including player of the year Wesley Saunders. Harvard also captured the 2013 Great Alaska Shootout tournament title along the way, and enjoyed an 11-1 record at home.last_img read more
