Some of you might feel that investing £1k, or any other sum, after the stock market crash is risky. There is a danger the index could fall back after the recent recovery. Much depends on how soon we move out of lockdown, and how much long-term damage has been done.Yet now could be a good moment to buy a spread of FTSE 100 shares, provided you aim to hold for the long term. While the risks are high, the danger is offset by the fact that share valuations are much lower. When the recovery comes, we could enjoy a massive relief rally.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…The stock market crash is your chanceInvestors are wary right now. Despite massive fiscal and monetary stimulus, the FTSE 100 is trading 15% lower than in January. Many companies have fallen far lower than that, trading at their lowest valuations for many years.There are some sectors I would avoid, such as cruise operators. Others may be undervalued, as they will only take a short-term hit from the lockdown. At times like these, share prices fall across the board. Good companies are sold off with the bad. That makes today a great time to buy top companies with strong balance sheets, loyal customers, steady cash flows, minimal debts, and bags of recovery potential.Put your £1,000 to workI can’t remember a tougher time for the economy. The financial crisis was a shocker, but at least we were allowed to do our jobs during that stock market crash. So please don’t underestimate the scale of the challenge.However, the economy has suffered before. No boom lasts forever. Nor does any bust. Eventually, the growth will return. We don’t yet know how fast the recovery will be. That’s why you should invest in cheap FTSE 100 stocks today, but with the aim of holding them for the long term. If you do that, you can wait for the good times to come again.The companies that do survive the stock market crash and aftermath could be nicely placed, as weaker rivals go to the wall. They may get further boost from monetary stimulus, which could drive up their valuations.I’d buy bargain FTSE 100 shares todayIf you’re investing a relatively small sum, such as £1,000, it’s hard to get the diversification you need by investing in individual company stocks. It may be wise to start with a FTSE 100 index tracker fund instead. This gives you exposure to all the UK’s top blue-chips at low cost.If you’ve more money to invest, you can start building a portfolio of stocks to turbo-charge your growth. The stock market crash looks like a great opportunity to buy FTSE 100 stocks while their values are low. Then sit tight, and wait for the stock market rebound. And it will, given time.

The shares are already up nearly 40% from their initial offer price of 370p, leaving the footwear firm with a market-cap approaching £5bn.Not only is this a great return for early holders, it also increases the odds of the company striding into the FTSE 100 when the next reshuffle occurs in March.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…Given this, should I be rushing to buy the stock? I’m not so sure.FTSE 100 bound?Now, don’t get me wrong. There are lots of things to like about Dr Martens as a company. First and foremost, it makes a lot of money, shifting more than 11 million pairs of shoes annually.In the last financial year to 31 March 2020, the business made £672m in revenues. Whether consumers appreciate DM styling or not, it seems many shoppers are attracted to the quality and durability of its shoes. Dr Martens is also nicely geographically diversified. Nearly half of sales come from Europe, the Middle East and Africa and a little over a third from the Americas. The remaining revenue is generated from the Asia-Pacific region. This kind of earnings spread isn’t a guarantee of continuing success, of course. However, it should make the company more resilient compared to one that operates solely in one part of the world.The potential for Dr Martens to enter the FTSE 100 should do its share price no harm either. Those funds specialising in tracking the top tier of the market will then be required to buy the stock. This may temporarily boost the company’s valuation even higher. Even so, I’ve a few nagging concerns.Reasons to be bearishThe first of these relates to the competition Dr Martens faces. While the brand is clearly valuable and long-lasting, it’s just one among many. Moreover, its popularity has waxed and waned over the years. Anecdotally, I last bought a pair of boots several years ago and haven’t ever felt the need to ‘upgrade’. As a potential investor, this lack of repeat business would concern me. I’m also put off by the fact that — variations aside — it remains a ‘one product’ company. By contrast, fast-fashion giant Boohoo now has multiple brands under its belt, no stores to maintain, and is preparing to enter new markets such as beauty and sports. Despite these attractions, Boohoo currently has a lower market capitalisation than Dr Martens! I also don’t think it would be right to buy a company’s stock solely on its potential to enter the FTSE 100. Truth be told, this promotion might not even happen. At the time of writing, Dr Martens faces stiff competition from the likes of holiday firm TUI, Royal Mail and engineer firm Weir Group for a spot in the top tier. Even if it were to emerge victorious, the huge rise seen in the share price since coming to market may bring forth a bout of profit-taking.Walk on byDr Martens has had a storming start to its time as a listed company. Notwithstanding this, a lot of promise and good news already looks firmly priced in. As someone who’s wary of frothy-looking valuations and IPO fever in 2021, I’m content to walk on by for now.  This new UK share looks set to stride into the FTSE 100. Time to buy?

Duplex House / L3P Architects

Despite the small block of land (637m2), a generous duplex house has been developed in an architecturally heterogeneous neighbourhood on the south face of Ennetbaden, which, in reference to organisation, takes an interesting and unconventional path. Save this picture!© Sabrina SchejaThe floor-plan volume is comprised of distorted rectangles. The architectsdissected the volume at diverse sites. Besides the resulting attractive remaining volume, each of these dissections is intended to fulfil an additional function:Save this picture!© Sabrina Scheja1. The cut in the north of the ground floor allows a north-side access to the house. 2. The breach on the ground floor allows access to the garden area which is used by both parties living in the house. 3. The cut in the south side of the ground floor presents the party in the lower house with the covered south terrace, which is contained within the main rectangle. 4. Both of the volume cuts in the attic provide the party in the upper house with south and north terraces.Save this picture!© Sabrina SchejaThe duplex house is not readable from the outside. The main surface are rendered with a horizontal brush with a 6mm render, treated and painted in a subtle green tone. On the contrary, the dissected surfaces are treated with a 0.5mm fine render in a brown colour scheme, thus machining an additional volume cut. The windows are also treated in two colours: the protruding, box-shaped constructions are kept aluminium-coloured externally, while the small-formed windows that are flush with the exterior surface, as well as the shutters, appear in golden tones. Save this picture!© Sabrina SchejaThe interior of the two units are intrinsically different. The valley-side unit stretches below from the naturally-lit sleeping area over the ground floor, including the living / dining / kitchen area, up to the upper floor encompassing the bedrooms. The continuous staircase leaning on the fire division wall serves as a connection to the third floor, building a formative element of the interior. The two-storey living area is completed without the usual accessibility, thus gaining power and dynamic. The design of the interior with its exposed cast concrete ceilings, floors and partial walls, as well as the white kitchen with cast concrete exposure gives an archaic impression.Save this picture!© Sabrina SchejaThe hillside unit stretches over four floors which are combined through a central core. The common utilities management and workshop is found in the basement. The ground floor with its entry and wardrobe only serves as a collection point to the upper floors with the bedrooms. The formative element here is the access to the overlapping staircase, which changes direction and entry-side with every floor. In the attic storey, the core of the unit is lighted from abovewith polygonal apertures in the wall and roof. The surrounding living, dining and kitchen area are arranged on the south and north-sided terraces. The view to the south from the timber decking and the intensive roof-greening are breath-taking. For the materialisation a mixture of cast concrete and oak parquet flooring in combination with exposed concrete ceilings and partial walls was chosen.Save this picture!Courtesy of L3P ArchitectsProject gallerySee allShow lessYading Cliff Building Competition Entry / ELEVArticlesZ House / nred arquitectosSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeL3P ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesEnnetbadenHousesSwitzerlandPublished on November 09, 2012Cite: “Duplex House / L3P Architects” 09 Nov 2012.

North Carolina’s ‘Moral Monday’ heats up as cops arrest 151

first_imgHundreds pack rotunda inside NC General Assembly; 151 are arrested.Photo: NC Student Power UnionRaleigh, N.C., June 3 — The fightback being led here by the North Carolina NAACP with weekly protests continues to gain momentum against the right-wing Legislature’s draconian policies, attacks on basic democratic rights and the push for austerity.The protests  — called ‘Moral Mondays’ — which began on April 29 and have been growing larger every Monday since, give expression to a growing spirit of resistance. Thousands have mobilized and 309 people have been arrested during these actions.More than 2,000 people from across the state representing many different social sectors came to Raleigh on June 3 for the largest demonstration to date. Traveling on buses, and in organized vans and carpools, they mobilized on a scale unprecedented in recent memory. Churches and other social movement organizations played an especially vital role in the mobilization.NAACP president, the Rev. Dr. William Barber, told those at the rally: “They meet in secret with ALEC. They meet in secret with the Civitas Institute and the John Locke Foundation. … [These attacks are] not accidental or naïve, this is premeditated. They are driving us down a road backwards. This is Old South politics. This is extreme politics. This is regressive politics.“As George Wallace in the Old South stood in the door trying to block opportunity and the future, so now the North Carolina leadership has picked up the mantle of George Wallace. … They are drunk with power and greed. This is a takeover, but it won’t work. The people are awake now, and we have decided to stand up!”Some 151 people were arrested as they lined up in front of the doors leading to the state Senate chambers in the legislative building, doubling the number of arrested in all four previous actions. Meanwhile, hundreds packed the halls and the rotunda outside the chamber and joined those participating in civil disobedience in chants and singing freedom songs.Justin Flores, an organizer with the Farm Labor Organizing Committee and one of those arrested June 3, told Workers World: “North Carolina was home of Local 22, a progressive and Black-led union during the Jim Crow South, the sit-ins, and the first union contract for farmworkers on the East Coast. Since [Gov. Pat] McCrory’s election, this radical Tea Party Legislature has had a blank check to take North Carolina in the opposite direction, trying to undo the progress of the last 60 years.”“With the election rigging disguised as redistricting and an attack on voting rights,” Flores continued, “it seemed that direct action on a large scale is the only way to fight back and wake people up. The Right has so far over reached and once FLOC signed onto the movement, I jumped at the chance to push back against the craziness happening in Raleigh.”Right-wing attacks spur fight backSuper majorities of Tea Party politicians in both houses of the General Assembly and the governor have been ramming through an agenda that is thoroughly reactionary and racist to the core.“We are here because they are trying to take from those who are poor for the benefit of the rich,” Ramon, a longtime member of FLOC, told WW at the Moral Monday action. “Education, health care, voting rights — all these things they are trying to take from the poor.” (floc.typepad.com)They dismantled the unemployment system, attacked reproductive rights and have waged a campaign to curtail basic democratic rights to vote for people of color, youth, and poor and working people. Arizona-style anti-immigration measures have also been recently introduced.North Carolina is now the only state in the country where teenagers cannot get medical attention — including treatment for sexually transmitted infections or diseases or for mental health — without parental consent.  It is only one of two states that try 16- and 17-year-olds as adults in the courts, and the Legislature is now trying to lower the age to 13, further fueling the school-to-prison pipeline that targets Black and Latino/a youth.The state budget proposal imposes massive cuts on public services and education, while giving huge tax breaks for the rich that will be paid on the backs of working people. Further undermining the ability of workers to organize is also at the top of their agenda. School vouchers, expanding charter and private schools, and other privatization schemes are quickly making their way through the Legislature.“People say that education is the great equalizer, but education itself isn’t equal,” Sanyu Gichie, a university student and a member of the NC Student Power Union and the Youth Organizing Institute, told WW. “African-American students are already impacted by this inequality largely due to institutional racism, harsh and disproportional implementation of punishment on Black youth, and with the cuts the Legislature is talking about, school vouchers, and expanding charters and private schools, this will only make the problems we face in school much worse.”Build people’s assembliesEach week since the demonstrations began, the number of people who have mobilized to the demonstration as well as those who have participated in the civil disobedience action has risen.But one factor that was especially important in building this action is a 25-city tour that the NAACP launched on May 25 that concludes on June 7. The tour has crisscrossed the state, stopping in communities big and small to build momentum behind the Moral Monday actions.Another longer term goal of the tour is to help develop people’s assemblies in these communities that can meet to discuss issues and struggles, and build institutions of people’s democracy over time.Build Moral Mondays!The NAACP and other groups have vowed to continue the weekly Monday actions throughout the remainder of the legislative session, which should run through mid-July.In the face of some of the most serious attacks on people here in decades, the united front of resistance led by Rev. Barber and the NAACP must continue to be strengthened and expanded to push back against the right-wing agenda.These actions resonate with people across the state, and the large June 3 turnout indicates they will continue to build. Many right-wing politicians, including most recently the governor, have called for the demonstrations to end. Rev. Barber’s answer at the June 3 rally was:“Don’t ask us when we’ll stop. Ask [House speaker Thom] Tillis and [Senate leader Phil] Berger and the man in the governor’s mansion when they’ll stop. … Stopping is not in our vocabulary. We are a movement, this is not a moment. We walk forward together, not one step back!”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

One reason for the discussion of invoking the 25th Amendment cited his unorthodox focus on his Twitter, yet Trump took to Twitter to blast McCabe, calling him a disgrace to the FBI and the United States.The past 5 years of Google Search information show an increase of interest in the “25th Amendment” since Trump took office. Source: Business Insider It is unlikely that the 25th Amendment would be invoked for Trump. While he takes an untraditional approach to the presidency that leads to some concerns, he isn’t physically or psychologically disabled to the point that he can’t do his job. “I think the impeachment process is more likely than the 25th Amendment, because I don’t believe the president’s Cabinet would agree to suspend him from office,” said Dr. Jackson. With the release of Muller’s report and the new testimony of Michael Cohen, Trump’s former attorney, there could be an actual possibility of impeachment, while there is no basis to invoke the 25th Amendment. Emily Gustafsonhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/emily-gustafson/ printFormer Deputy Director of the FBI came forward with details of discussion between top government officials discussing the 25th Amendment. Credit: AP / Rex / ShutterstockRevelations that officials in the Justice Department discussed the 25th Amendment and the president’s ability to lead has prompted some to suggest this was an act of treason or at least a bureaucratic coup. So what exactly is the 25th Amendment? It’s been around for about 50 years and basically it explains what to do when the president can’t be president.Section 4 of the 25th Amendment gives power to the vice president and Cabinet members to remove the president of the United States from office if he or she is physically or psychologically incapable of carrying out his or her duties. The power has been invoked three times in the past — twice when George W. Bush was under anesthesia for colonoscopies and while Ronald Reagan had cancerous polyps removed. In all of these instances, the president voluntarily gave power to the vice president before going under anesthesia. “The president has someone following him with a nuclear football, or codes for the nuclear football, at all times so you’ve got to have someone responsible for that,” said Donald Jackson, Ph.D., public policy professor at TCU.McCabe’s remarks mark the first time influential government officials have openly discussed invoking the 25th Amendment without the president’s consent. If the president and Cabinet disagree about the president’s ability to serve, it would go to Congress to be voted on, with a two-thirds majority vote to remove the president from power. This has never happened, or come close to happening. After the firing of FBI Director James Comey, a few things happened: Robert Mueller was appointed special counsel, then, a discussion between top intelligence officials happened and the topic of conversation was removing Trump via the 25th Amendment. McCabe spoke publicly about this conversation earlier this month saying that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had even offered to wear a wire and secretly record his conversations with President Trump. Rosenstein and the Justice Department denied this claim multiple times. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein along with the Justice Department have denied the claim that Rosenstein offered to wear a wire to record conversations with Trump. Credit: AP Photo / Evan VucciSome critics of McCabe have compared this conversation to a “bureaucratic coup.” Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., promised on CBS “Face the Nation” to “get to the bottom” of McCabe’s comments. Sen. Graham implied the conversation was an “attempted bureaucratic coup.”Sen. Graham won’t find much to “get to the bottom” of in this case. As the 25th Amendment is part of the constitution, the discussion of invoking it isn’t a coup or considered unconstitutional. It was developed for that very reason. As individuals, the intelligence officials are granted the constitutional right to have that conversation. “The process of considering whether the president is able to carry out his duties, that’s why we have the 25th Amendment, that’s why it was necessary. How can it be unconstitutional if it’s in the constitution?” said Dr. Jackson. “The biggest abuse of power and corruption scandal in our history, and it’s much worse than we thought. Andrew McCabe (FBI) admitted to plotting a coup (government overthrow) when he was serving in the FBI, before he was fired for lying & leaking.” @seanhannity @FoxNews Treason!— Donald J.

The delegation will be comprised of RSF Secretary-General Christophe Deloire, RSF UK Bureau Director Rebecca Vincent and RSF Germany Director Christian Mihr.“We are here to show our serious concern for the continued persecution of Julian Assange, and to call again for his release. Extraditing him to the US, where he would face charges in connection with his contributions to journalism, would set a very dangerous precedent. The world is watching what takes place in London this week, and the UK has a final chance to prove it means what it says when it comes to the global defence of press freedom,” said RSF Secretary-General Christophe Deloire.“It is an unprecedented step for us to undertake this type of international trial-monitoring mission in an established democratic country, which would be more typical in countries ranked much further down our World Press Freedom Index. But I am joined by colleagues from other RSF offices as what is at stake is of such great international concern. We call again for the UK government to prioritise press freedom and the protection of journalistic sources in this case, and not to comply with the US extradition request,” said RSF UK Bureau Director Rebecca Vincent.RSF firmly opposes Assange’s possible extradition to the US, and has launched a petition calling for the UK not to comply with the US extradition request. RSF believes that Assange has been targeted for his contributions to journalism in publishing leaked information that was in the public interest, and that his persecution has extremely worrying implications for investigative journalism and press freedom.RSF also remains seriously concerned for Assange’s health, following the worrying report of UN Special Rapporteur Nils Melzer after visiting Assange in prison. Melzer found that Assange had been deliberately exposed to inhuman and degrading treatment that could be described as psychological torture.The UK and US are respectively ranked 33rd and 48th out of 180 countries on RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index.Press contact: Rebecca Vincent, [email protected] or +44 7583 137751. At the start of Julian Assange’s US extradition hearing in London, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) renews calls for his release and for the UK not to comply with the US extradition request. Following an RSF action staged outside Belmarsh prison on 23 February, a delegation from RSF will be monitoring the extradition hearing starting on 24 February. to go further United KingdomEurope – Central Asia Freedom of expressionJudicial harassment Petitions #FreeAssange : Sign against Julian Assange’s extradition to the United States!

Reporters Without Borders condemns bombing of main Turkish-Cypriot newspaper

first_img December 2, 2020 Find out more News News CyprusEurope – Central Asia RSF and 60 other organisations call for an EU anti-SLAPP directive CyprusEurope – Central Asia RSF_en Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EU Follow the news on Cyprus November 23, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders condemned an overnight attack on the offices of daily Kibris newspaper in which three separate bombs exploded, in the north of Nicosia, in the “Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus” (recognised only by Turkey). No-one was hurt. The international press freedom organisation urged the leader of the Turkish-Cypriot community Rauf Denktash to do everything possible to find and punish the perpetrators of this unacceptable act of intimidation in an exemplary fashion. It also urged him to take the necessary steps to guarantee the safety of journalists.Three small home-made bombs exploded in front of the newspaper’s offices just before midnight on 6-7 May, but caused no damage. No group has admitted responsibility and an investigation has been launched.Editor Basaran Duzgun said he thought paramilitary and ultra-nationalist groups could be behind the attack on the paper. The newspaper had backed the UN peace plan to reunify the island, which has been divided since Turkey invaded in 1974 in reaction to a Greek-Cypriot ultra-nationalist coup that tried to make it part of Greece.He said that Kibris journalists and their families had received a number of death threats in the months preceding the 24 April 2004 referendum on the reunification of the island. At the time the newspaper chose not to make these threats public and sought police protection. Owner of the newspaper, Asil Nadir, said that the threats would not prevent the newspaper from “continuing to support a peaceful solution for the island.”Greek-Cypriots overwhelmingly rejected the UN plan in the referendum while Turkish Cypriots largely approved it. Only the southern part of Cyprus therefore became part of the European union on 1st May. After the referendum, Kibris called for the resignation of Mr Denktash, who strongly opposed the peace plan.In its 2004 annual report, Reporters Without Borders strongly condemned increased press freedom violations in the northern part of Cyprus. “Journalists were targeted who criticised the policies of Rauf Denktash, had ties with Greek-Cypriot colleagues or EU representatives or who favoured the island’s reunification and EU membership”, the organisation said.center_img to go further June 2, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information News Organisation May 7, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Reporters Without Borders condemns bombing of main Turkish-Cypriot newspaper News Ten RSF recommendations for the European Union Receive email alertslast_img read more
