Over time, they could deliver impressive returns that help an investor improve their prospects of retiring early.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 build a diverse portfolio of FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 shares for the long run.Weak investor sentiment after the stock market crashThe stock market crash may have taken place in the first quarter of the year, but investor sentiment continues to be relatively weak. For example, the FTSE 100 trades around 27% down in 2020. Meanwhile, the FTSE 250 is currently priced 22% lower than it was at the start of the year.As such, there could be buying opportunities on offer across both indexes. Some companies have valuations significantly below their historic averages. Yet they have solid financial positions and clear competitive advantages over their peers. They could offer good value for money while investor sentiment towards the wider stock market is relatively weak.Improving prospects for UK sharesClearly, it could take some time for investor sentiment to fully recover after the stock market crash. However, the past performance of indexes such as the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 suggests it will return over the long run. Neither index has ever experienced a perpetual decline. Instead, bear markets have been followed by bull markets that have produced new record highs.Furthermore, the economic outlook could improve over the coming years. Factors such as fiscal and monetary policy stimulus may have a positive impact on GDP growth. This may cause stronger operating conditions for many UK shares that leads to improving investor sentiment.Building a retirement portfolioBuying UK shares after a stock market crash has generally been a sound strategy in the past. It’s enabled investors to access lower stock prices that can mean there’s greater scope for capital growth in the recovery phase of the stock market cycle.However, risks during any period of economic weakness are likely to be relatively high. As such, it’s prudent to select not only the cheapest UK shares available, but those that have the greatest capacity to participate in an economic recovery. They may include financially-sound businesses with access to large amounts of liquidity. They may also include those businesses with a wide economic moat.Through investing in a diverse range of UK shares while sentiment is weak after the stock market crash, an investor could obtain high returns in the long run. This may improve their financial prospects and increase their chances of retiring early.

Rampaging Vaea Fifita makes astonishing All Blacks start vs Argentina

first_imgMonday Sep 11, 2017 Rampaging Vaea Fifita makes astonishing All Blacks start vs Argentina Vaea Fifita’s first start for the All Blacks could not have gone better. Not only did he score one of the best loose forward tries you’re likely to see, but he made countless big runs and showed himself as a physical threat in close quarters.The 25-year-old Hurricances forward lived up to the hype prematch, after coach Steve Hansen had sung his praises, calling him a ‘real physical beast’.The world was treated to a true display of athletiscm, as Fifita made a large contribution to the 39-22 victory, which sees New Zealand at the top of the Rugby Championship table.“I feel good. I always back myself when I’ve got the ball in my hand,” said Fifita post match. “For me, every game I feel calm, I never feel nervous. But when you get out on the field, just play, get the ball in your hand and play.”Fifita is Tongan born and was first spotted when touring New Zealand with Tonga U18 in 2010. He was reportedly offered a scholarship by Northland coach Richie Harris, who was in charge of the Tamaki College first XV at the time.The New Zealand Herald note that Fifita was later lured away from Auckland rugby via Murray Mexted’s rugby academy. Mexted said at the time “this boy is incredible”.There has been a lot of talk about his high knee running style, and that was never more prevalent than almost exactly a year ago, when he literally hurdled a defender when playing for Wellington in the Mitre 10 Cup.Coach Steven Hansen is not getting too excited just yet though, saying he has some work to do.“He’s a young man… [I] talked about him the other day and said he’s a good athlete. You saw that, a good athlete, tonight. I don’t think he’s the finished product.“You can’t just go out onto the flank and wait for the ball to come to you, sometimes as a flanker you’ve got to do the hard work too.“He’s got a long way to go before he does that but it’s a tank that’s got plenty in it and it’s our job to bring that out. It was a starting point and he showed a little of that tonight.The try he scored was outstanding, but he had so many other quality moments too, so this montage gives a nice idea of why everyone has been talking about him since the rugby montages HDADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries , See it to Believe it Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Soybean Harvest May Slow as Rain Begins

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Soybean Harvest May Slow as Rain Begins Soybean Harvest May Slow as Rain Begins By Gary Truitt – Oct 11, 2012 Previous articleFSA Extends Emergency Grazing to November 30Next articleDuPont Pioneer Field Update with Brian Early 10/11/12 Gary Truitt SHARE The Indiana soybean harvest is ahead of schedule. Statewide about 30% of the crop has been harvested compared to 20% last year at this time.  But a forecast change in the weather may slow the pace of harvest, especially for soybeans, according to Brian Early, Indiana agronomist with DuPont Pioneer, “You are losing a little daylight every day; and, with more rain, it will take longer each day to get the moisture out of the soybeans.” He said, in addition, the corn that remains in the field is deteriorating quickly, “The stalks were not in good shape to begin with because of the drought, and they are starting to get very weak.”   He said any storms will bring serious harvest challenges.center_img Brian EarlyBut even with a slowdown in harvest activity, harvest should be completed early enough to get fall field work completed.  Early is recommending growers look at field fertility issues following this summer’s drought, “Soil sampling would be a good thing to do this year. Although, keep in mind with the dry soil some of your nutrient levels may seem a little off from what they usually are.”  With lower yields, there is the temptation to cut back on fertilizer, but Early warns that may not be a good idea going into next year.He told HAT most of the corn and soybeans are coming out of the fields very dry and, as a result, very little drying is needed, “It is nice to save a little this year on drying costs.”  You can hear the complete interview with Brian Early on the DuPont Pioneer agronomy page and audio section of the Hoosier Ag Today Smartphone app.[audio:|titles=Soybean Harvest May Slow as Rain Begins]Audio Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Podcast: Play in new window | Download | EmbedSubscribe: RSS SHARE Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Two radio journalists held on charges of inciting a riot which they covered

first_img ArgentinaAmericas News November 19, 2020 Find out more ArgentinaAmericas Help by sharing this information On eve of the G20 Riyadh summit, RSF calls for public support to secure the release of jailed journalists in Saudi Arabia July 6, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders today condemned the arrests of radio journalists Néstor Pasquini and Hugo Francischelli, who were present at a riot on 4 December in Corral de Bustos, a small town in the north-central province of Córdoba, in which a courthouse was destroyed and a judge’s car was torched. Held since 20 December, they are charged with inciting violence, arson and minor injuries and face between three and 15 years in prison.Calling for their immediate release, Reporters Without Borders said there appeared to be a miscarriage of justice. In a case in which the death of a young girl led to serious disturbances, it was regrettable that the authorities preferred to make scapegoats out of journalists who were just covering the events, the press freedom organisation said.The 4 December rioting was prompted by the rape and murder of a small girl, in which the judicial authorities charged the girl’s mother with murder and two men with murder and sexual assault.Prosecutor Carlos Ernesto Viramonte issued warrants for the arrest of 10 people in connection with the riot. The list include Pasquini and Francischelli, who were at the scene covering the disturbances. They were arrested at their homes 16 days after the events. The authorities are still looking for two other people on the list.Pasquini is the owner of local radio FM Show, and the correspondent of radio FM Panorama. Francischelli hosts a programme on radio FM 97.3.“They are making scapegoats out of the journalists, they want to intimidate the media in order to silence them,” Reporters Without Borders was told by Fernando Cabrera, the producer of the programme En Contacto, who is campaigning for Pasquini’s release. “It is no coincidence that the arrests were carried out just a few days before the holiday period,” Cabrera added. “He is still being held incommunicado and will undoubtedly spend New Year’s Eve in prison as well.”To the claim by the judicial authorities that the two journalists incited a violent protest outside the courthouse by nearly 1,000 people, Cabrera responded: “Pasquini was working so it was logical that he would be in the middle of the revolt.”The prosecutor decided to transfer the two journalists and six other detainees to the police station in the nearby town of Marcos Juárez to avoid any possibility of reprisals by local residents.

The reality, however, is that nearly half of Americans wrestle with serious money woes, making securing mortgages and purchasing houses very nearly impossible. In fact, PYMNTS has coined a name for this struggling demographic: the “financial invisibles.”To ascertain how this cash-strapped cohort accesses financial tools and manages their credit, PYMNTS teamed with Unifund to create the Financial Invisibles Index. The index analyzed the survey responses of more than 2,000 Americans about their financial habits and circumstances. (It’s worth noting that the study sought relatively low-income Americans to help deepen insights into the use of credit by “financially challenged” folks, the companies explained.)After shaking out the data, the researchers pinpointed four personas of financial invisibles:No Worries: People who have no delinquencies and can fully participate in the financial system.Second Chances: Those who have had past delinquencies but can still participate in the financial system.On the Edge: People who struggle to make ends meet and have no delinquencies but are unable to participate in the financial system.Shut Outs: Those who have had delinquencies in the past and, as a result, can’t participate in the financial system.It’s important to mention that a big swath of the so-called invisibles aren’t that way by choice and would much prefer to participate in the banking system, the study says. Which is to say they would love nothing more than to score a mortgage and buy a home. Unfortunately, a lack of access to credit and a poor credit rating often deter them from managing bill payments and seeking financial well-being, let alone from becoming homeowners.To illustrate the low-credit point, for example: Shut Outs reported an average credit score of 525, while On the Edge members had an average score of 589. The No Worries group, however, noted an average score of 714.As it relates to housing and homeownership, the key takeaway from this pretty much goes without saying: Whether visible or not, financial stability plays a huge role in a would-be buyer’s ability to procure a residence.To view the full report, click here.last_img read more

Man charged in alleged drugs-for-weapons deal with al-Qaeda-linked group

first_imgObtained by ABC News(NEW YORK) — A Colombian described by federal drug agents as the country’s most significant drug trafficker in Africa has been arrested and brought to the United States to face charges of narcoterrorism conspiracy, according to a criminal complaint unsealed Friday.David Cardona-Cardona arrived Thursday in New York where he was charged with arranging to trade cocaine for surface-to-air missiles and other advanced weaponry. He is due to appear in federal court on Friday afternoon.Cardona allegedly needed to move the drugs into Europe and agreed to give the weapons to a terrorist group linked to al-Qaeda in exchange for use of the group’s smuggling routes through the Sahara Desert, the DEA said in the complaint.“In particular, Cardona expressed a desire to provide the weapons to the organization Ansar al-Dine, and specifically indicated that the purpose of the weapons was to shoot down manned and unmanned aircraft belonging to the United States and other allied nations operating in West Africa,” the complaint states.Cardona has been charged in the Southern District of New York with narcotics conspiracy, narcoterrorism conspiracy, firearms conspiracy and conspiracy to violate maritime drug enforcement laws. The case was brought by the DEA and an agent from Homeland Security Investigations.The United States designated Ansar al-Dine a foreign terrorist organization in 2013. It operates mainly in Mali and cooperates with al-Qaeda in the Islamic Magreb, according to the State Department.According to the criminal complaint, Cardona arranged the alleged drugs-for-weapons trade with two confidential DEA sources in Madrid, where he described years of drug trafficking through the Sahara Desert and working with Islamic extremists. He also mentioned access to a Gulfstream jet that could fly from Africa to southern Europe, according to the complaint.“Cardona explained that he worked with a friend in Africa who has an aviation company using aircraft brought from the United States,” the complaint said. “Cardona agreed with the confidential sources that ‘our plan is … to try to do an operation with this plane.’”Allegedly needing access to desert runways controlled by the al-Qaeda-linked extremists, whom he referred to as “barbudos,” or “bearded ones,” Cardona allegedly plotted with the confidential sources, a cooperating witness and an undercover Croatian law enforcement officer to ship them tens of thousands of dollars’ worth of surface-to-air missiles, .50 caliber rifles and night vision goggles using the same aircraft that delivered his cocaine to southern Europe, according to the complaint.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Colonisation and development in encrusting communities from the Antarctic intertidal and sublittoral

first_imgA total of 985 rocks with a wide range of surface areas were examined from six locations at Signy Island in the maritime Antarctic. The shallowest site was intertidal and the deepest at 42 m. The probability of coralline algae occurring was found to increase with surface area and depth of rocks, implying decreased levels of turnover or physical disturbance with increasing rock size and depth. Percent area colonised, number of animal phyla, bryozoan species and bryozoan colonies all increased both with rock surface area and depth. The largest rocks in the intertidal had broadly similar levels of colonisation and community development as did the smallest at 42 m. Thus, because of depth-dependent ice-scour, community development in the Antarctic sublittoral may be followed along a pseudo-time sequence by using two axes (substratum size and depth) of environmental stability. Frequent disturbance appears to be responsible for maintaining the level of diversity and preventing monopolisation. Bryozoans and polychaetes were the most abundant encrusting animal groups, although tunicates and sponges were the dominant overgrowth competitors. The faunal elements of the colonising biota were almost entirely confined to the undersurfaces of rocks whereas algae dominated upper surfaces. In most bryozoan species the proportion of colonies occurring on the upper surfaces of rocks increased with depth to 34 m and then decreased at 42 m where silt deposition apparently became a major influence. Such a shift in distribution may reflect decreasing current velocities, and therefore reduced disturbance to animal feeding, and/or decreasing growth of coralline algae due to reduced light availability.last_img read more
