first_img whatsapp Ivy founder in Middle East deal Richard Caring, the entrepreneur behind The Ivy, Rivington Grill and Scott’s has signed a joint venture with Jumeirah, the Dubai-based hotels and leisure business.

It is understood Caring’s holding company, Caprice, will provide senior staff on a consultancy basis. The aim is to “pay tribute” to the restaurants rather than produce replicas, say those close to the process. Caring has an estimated fortune of £350m.

FTSE 100 investors: Here’s one thing I’d be careful of in this bear market

Those who buy stocks while the market is down tend to be rewarded in the long run.That said, investing during a bear market is not as straightforward as investing during a bull market. If you’re thinking of buying stocks in the current bear market, there’s one thing you should know.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…Beware of bear trapsIt’s no secret that in a bear market, the general trend of the stock market is down. What many investors don’t realise, however, is that stocks don’t fall in a straight line. Every now and then, the stock market will bounce a little (as selling activity temporarily weakens), before resuming its downward trend. This ‘false reversal’ pattern is called a ‘bear trap’, and it can be dangerous for investors.The reason bear traps are dangerous is that they lure investors back into the market at higher prices, right before the next down-leg of the bear market. Stocks rise a little, and investors think the worst is over. As fear is replaced by greed, they scramble to get back into the market. Then, the market suddenly takes another dive and those who bought at higher prices get crushed.This is summed up well by AJ Bell’s investment director Russ Mould, who said recently: “Analysis of the four previous downturns in 1987, 1998, 2000 – 2003 and 2007 – 2009 show that those bear markets were actually littered with sharp rallies which cruelly turned out to be nothing more than bear traps for the unwary, who were tempted into a ‘buy-on-the-dip’ strategy, only to quickly find themselves in trouble.”FTSE 100 bear trap?Looking at the FTSE 100‘s movements in the last few days, my hunch is that we may be seeing a bear trap right now. The coronavirus situation is far from over, yet the FTSE has rebounded roughly 15%. That kind of bounce seems a little premature to me. I would not be surprised to see another down-leg from here before the market generates a sustained recovery.As Mould says: “There remains the risk that any such advance proves fairly temporary should news on the viral outbreak continue to get worse and policy measures require a longer lockdown – and potentially deeper hit to global economic activity – than currently hoped.”Mould also points out that six of the FTSE 100’s 10 single largest percentage daily gains in recent times came between September and December 2008 (during the Financial Crisis). Yet the index didn’t bottom until March 2009 – something to keep in mind after this week’s huge jump.Investing in a bear marketSo, what’s the best way to invest in bear markets?Well, one piece of advice is to keep your emotions in check. Don’t let fear and greed drive your investment decisions. If the market suddenly rallies hard, don’t feel that you need to load up on stocks at higher prices to avoid missing out on gains.It’s also a good idea to refrain from investing large lump sums at once. Drip-feeding money into the market slowly at regular intervals will enable you to capitalise if stocks fall further.Finally, I think it’s smarter to buy stocks on the big down days instead of the big up days. You can still lose money this way, of course, but by buying shares at lower prices, your portfolio will recover faster.

Stock market crash: I’d buy UK shares now despite recent volatility

first_imgSimply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Image source: Getty Images. Despite being well into the Covid-19 crisis and hopefully past the worst of the subsequent stock market crash, the last month has shown that UK shares will continue to be volatile for the time being. The backdrop to these swings is a never-ending stream of news stories. Some of which are positive and others negative. With such a barrage of news stories, it’s hard to form an accurate view of what’s actually happening and what that means for UK shares.UK shares volatileThe result of this uncertainty is that stock prices swing wildly. We saw this at the beginning of the crisis back in March. Recently, it looks like volatility has returned. Until there’s proof that an effective vaccine is imminent, I think we’re going to continue to see significant swings in stock prices.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…It feels to me like there are more negative news stories lurking just around the corner. These have the potential to send UK share prices back to where they were in March and April. Another stock market crash could mean falls of up to 50% in some cases. But we should view this as an opportunity.Sure enough, in time, there will be a solution to this crisis. We just don’t how long it’s going take and what the damage will be in the meantime. But when sentiment becomes more optimistic again, stock prices will rise. In the long run they could rise significantly. This would reward those investors that take the risk of buying UK shares amidst heightened uncertainty.Opportunities aboundBearing that in mind, I think there are, and will be, more great opportunities to be had for investors to pick up great companies at bargain prices. But we need to exercise caution. I think it’s prudent to stay away from the riskiest areas, such as tourism and real estate.Instead, I’d focus on quality companies that have produced solidly profitable results during the crisis. Aviva, Prudential and Mondi have all recently announced very respectable results for the first half of the year, especially given the circumstances. Prudential’s pre-tax profit was just 3% lower than the same period last year. While Aviva managed to report net profits of almost £900m.These are all high-quality companies, that will endure through the toughest of lockdowns. And they could even emerge from the crisis stronger than they were before.Some companies have also recently reinstated hefty dividends. Direct Line and Mondi (again) have both not only returned to dividends for this financial year, but also declared catch-up dividends to compensate for those cancelled from the last financial year. Meanwhile, BAE Systems has reinstated its previously deferred dividend, giving a yield of around 5%.In the current investment climate, those companies that can pay out juicy dividends will be highly sought after. They are some of the strongest companies in the UK. They also seem cheap, with their share prices still impacted by the wider market sentiment, which is why I think they are among the best UK shares right now. If there is another stock market crash, they could be cheaper still. I think these are exactly the kind of UK shares that we should be rushing to buy. 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.

FL expands state exam schedule for spring; critics opposed to any…

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Photo by Wadi Liss Please enter your comment! LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply From Danielle J. Brown, Florida PhoenixFlorida school districts will be given more time to schedule crucial state exams during the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a new emergency order from state education officials.Florida Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran on Monday signed the new order granting school districts a wider testing window to help schedule statewide assessments while maintaining social distancing protocols during the COVID-19 pandemic.For example, the Grade 3 reading exam had been scheduled for April 5 to April 16. Now, districts can test between April 5 to April 30.Overall, controversy remains about whether students should have high-stake testing during the pandemic.Nevertheless, notifications of the emergency order were sent Monday morning to Florida school superintendents, and the Florida Department of Education posted tweets and messages on Twitter and Facebook.The order outlines a modified testing window for statewide assessments to better suit the challenges that come with educating and testing during the pandemic.The order extends the testing window from about two weeks to a month — meaning that school districts can use the extra time to administer the exam for students while accounting for more social distancing measures.The order also says that school superintendents can reach out to request for further scheduling flexibility, though to what extent is not yet clear.The order lays out the extended testing windows as followed:April 5-30: Grade 3 English Language Arts: ReadingApril 5-30: Grades 4-10 Writing:May 3-28: Grades 4-6 ELA, 3-6 Math, grades 5 and 8 Science:May 3-June 11: Grades 7-10 ELA/Math, End-of-Course exams:By extending these testing windows, the results of such tests are also delayed.“The results of the Grade 3 ELA assessment will be made available no later than June 30, and the results of the remaining assessments will be made available no later than July 31,” the order says.Some of these statewide assessments which could determine grade retention or affect graduation. As the Phoenix recently reported, the Grade 3 ELA assessment holds a lot of weight in projections for student success in subsequent grades.Statewide testing during the COVID-19 pandemic has been a contentious topic for some time.Last year, statewide assessments were cancelled due to the emerging COVID pandemic. Now they’re back on, but critics think exams add more pressures and stress, particularly while learning during the COVID pandemic. Many advocates say that the state should postpone this year’s exams too.Legislation in the upcoming 2021 legislative session would focus on using the assessments to identify struggling students rather than punishing them.But right now, students will have to test in person regardless of whether they learn in a brick-and-mortar classroom setting or at home on a computer.The emergency order would at least allow districts to schedule these exams in a way that would accommodate pandemic-related measures.“[Emergency order] does give us more time to conduct these tests and so that may help us with scheduling,” said Russell Bruhn, who oversees communications for the Brevard County school district, in a conversation with the Phoenix.He continued: “The challenge is getting students who are in charter schools, are in e-learning, or even in private schools… they come to the [Brevard Public Schools] brick-and-mortar schools for these tests. So the planning is on how to stay COVID compliant, with our COVID safety protocols, while administering these tests.”center_img The Anatomy of Fear Please enter your name here TAGSCOVID-19EducationFlorida Education Commissioner Richard CorcoranFlorida PhoenixOrderPandemicStatewide AssessmentsTesting Window Previous article5 Tips for Healthy SleepNext articleMajor League Baseball spring training begins in Florida – a return to ‘normalcy’ without the ‘normal’ Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR You have entered an incorrect email address!

Throwback: The outstanding theatre of the Haka and Sipi Tau going face to face

first_imgFriday Sep 6, 2019 Throwback: The outstanding theatre of the Haka and Sipi Tau going face to face New Zealand host Tonga on Saturday in a final Rugby World Cup warm up match in Hamilton ahead of leaving for Japan. Both have picked strong teams, and an entertaining side story will be what happens shortly before kick off. ADVERTISEMENTThe two sides have met on five occasions, four of which have been at the Rugby World Cup. They met in 2015 and Saturday’s Test will be their third meeting in New Zealand.The home side will be wary of taking the opposition too lightly, so have chosen a side that looks formidable on paper and features the likes of Beauden Barrett back at number ten, and Sam Whitelock in the second row, earning his 112th Test cap, which equals Dan Carter’s spot as the fifth most capped All Black of all time.When the two sides met at the 2003 Rugby World Cup, the prematch traditions created a brilliant piece of theatre, as Carlos Spencer led the All Blacks Haka while Tonga did the Sipi Tau at the same time.In 2015, we saw similar scenes as both sides provided another thrilling encounter, setting the scene nicely.ADVERTISEMENT“Tonga will be targeting this game in a bid to build momentum into their Rugby World Cup campaign, and so are we, as it’s going to be important for both teams to head into the Tournament with confidence,” said All Blacks coach Steve Hansen.Saturday’s match kicks off at 2:35pm local time in Hamilton, New Zealand.NEW ZEALAND: 15.

Tresco Marathon Celebrates its 10th Anniversary Completing One Lap around the World

first_img Ben Shephard Returns to Run One of the Smallest Marathons on EarthCelebrating its 10th anniversary, April 26th 2009 will see GMTV presenter and CF Trust patron Ben Shephard, return to run the Tresco marathon. Ben will be helping 125 other runners finally complete the full distance of one lap around the world, covering over a staggering 25,000 miles in ten years.Helping to raise money for people with Cystic Fibrosis, the UK’s most common life-threatening, inherited disease, Ben has chosen to run one of the world’s smallest marathons for the second year running. Cheering them on to the finish line will be fellow CF Trust patron author Bill Bryson.The Tresco Marathon takes place on Tresco, one of the Isles of Scilly. In the ten years since the marathon began, the Tresco community along with over 1,000 runners have helped to raise a whopping £500,000, seen the circumference of the earth covered as well as 8,400 energy drinks consumed. This tiny island of 150 inhabitants has also seen 84kg of jelly babies, 6,200 mars bars, 2,100 pasties and 210kg of pasta consumed, whilst 36,000 plastic cups have been used to quench thirst.The Tresco marathon began in 2000 when Pete Hingston, island chef and father of 11 year old Jade who has CF, was unable to get to London to take part in the famous marathon. He was so keen to run to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust that he decided to do a marathon on the same day around the island instead. The whole island has since embraced the idea and the marathon has now become an amazing tradition which has gone from strength to strength, and grown year on year. All the money raised will help fund research into finding an effective treatment for Cystic Fibrosis.The 26.2 mile course is made up of seven and a half laps run in a figure of eight around a three and a half mile circuit. The runners, many of whom come back year after year, say that although the harsh inclines en route are a gruelling test of stamina, the breath-taking landscapes and silver sanded beaches sloping into crystal clear water make it an idyllic setting for such a demanding pursuit.Ben Shephard said: “The Tresco marathon is a completely unique experience and a weekend of great memories. The course is the same length as the London marathon but with the constant changing terrain, is incredibly tough to complete and such an achievement for everyone who takes part, including myself. This will be my second year at Tresco and I find it truly amazing how a tiny island could make such a big difference to the lives of thousands of people living with CF.”Rosie Barnes, Chief Executive of Cystic Fibrosis Trust, comments: “We are very proud to have achieved such a milestone with the Tresco marathon and the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. The money raised over the last ten years has contributed to research into treating and curing CF and given hope to thousands of families living with this life-threatening illness. We are very grateful to Ben Shephard for running, to our patrons for attending and to all who have taken part in this very special marathon over the years.”ENDSFor further information on the Tresco marathon please contact Maddy Durrant at IncrediBull on 020 7940 3800 / [email protected] or Gemma Foy at the CF Trust on 0208 290 7912 / [email protected] to Picture DeskThe Ten Year Anniversary Cystic Fibrosis Trust Ceremony of Lanterns will be held at 8pm on Saturday night to commemorate Tresco’s 10 year milestone. Photography will be issued on Sunday.Notes to EditorsThe Cystic Fibrosis Trust is the UK’s only national charity dealing with all aspects of Cystic Fibrosis (CF). It funds research to treat and cure CF and aims to ensure appropriate clinical care and support for people with Cystic Fibrosis.Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is the UK’s most common life-threatening inherited disease. Cystic Fibrosis is caused by a single defective gene. As a result, the internal organs, especially the lungs and digestive system, become clogged with thick sticky mucus resulting in chronic infections and inflammation in the lungs and difficulty digesting food.Each week five babies are born with Cystic Fibrosis and three young people die – 90% from lung damage. Average life expectancy is just 31, although improvements in treatments mean a baby born today is expected to live longer.For more information on the Tresco Marathon visitwww.trescomarathon.org.ukFor more information about Cystic Fibrosis and the work of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust visitwww.cftrust.org.uk.

Rose Marine Theater hosts quarterly film series celebrating diversity in the Latino culture

first_imgAbortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra celebrates 50 years of James Bond printA new film series dedicated to showing the diversity of the Latino culture begins at the Rose Marine theater.Fort Worth’s Human Relations Unit has partnered with Artes de la Rosa Cultural Center for the Arts, Fort Worth Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and the Hispanic Women’s Network of Texas to create the film series.Movies That Matter Latino went into planning after another movie event, “Latinos: 500 Years of History,” had success this past summer.“Film can be a powerful education tool,” said Veronica Villegas, manager for Movies That Matter for the Fort Worth Human Relations Commission. “Film provides a non-confrontational way for its audience to gain knowledge and insight into issues that can often be difficult to talk about. It allows each viewer to draw his or her own conclusions about what they have seen.”The first film, “Ella es el Matador”, was shown on Sunday and covered the topic of gender equality in Spain and Mexico by using the example of female matadors and the struggles they face trying to do what they love.“There is a message of pursuing your dreams; you can look and take away negatives but there are also positives where people are chasing their dreams against massive opposition,” said Miguel Leatham, a panelist and Director of the Anthropology program at TCU.Each film focuses on a different part of Latino culture with the purpose of teaching.The panel of Miguel Leatham (left), Melita Garza (middle) and Becky Balarin (right).The purpose isn’t to tell people what to think or do but to provide facts, create an awareness and to give people something to think about, said Villegas.The films are followed by an open discussion with a panel of experts on the topic covered in each film, including a scholar to provide context and a representative from a local organization to provide a list of resources available to the public.Discussions were added to the films after visitors would stand outside the theater and compare their thoughts, said Villegas.A woman in the audience gives her opinion on the first film.More films will debut throughout the year.The next film, which covers a month-long festival honors George Washington’s birthday, is set to play June 4. It will be followed by two other films on Sept. 3 and Dec. 3, showing the journey of three Salvadoran women to the United States and the dream of a third grader, respectively.There is no admission fee to any of the films and previews of the next films are found on the Human Resource Unit’s webpage.

African Court says Burkina Faso failed to investigate murder properly

first_img Burkina FasoAfrica to go further French reporter says he has been kidnapped in northeastern Mali Time is pressing, 20 years after Burkinabe journalist’s murder Organisation News Reporters Without Borders hails a ruling issued by the African Court on Human and Peoples’ Rights on 28 March, finding that Burkina Faso failed to properly investigate the 1998 murder of Norbert Zongo, the editor of the Ouagadougou-based weekly L’Indépendant.The burned bodies of Zongo and three other people were found in a car on 13 December 1998. At the time of his death, Zongo had been investigating the suspicious death in prison of David Ouédraogo, the driver of presidential adviser François Compaoré, the president’ brother.“This decision sends a strong signal to Burkina Faso’s authorities 15 years after Zongo’s murder and nearly eight years after the judicial system dismissed all charges and abandoned the case,” said Cléa Kahn-Sriber, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Africa desk.“We hope that President Blaise Compaoré’s government will seize this opportunity to reopen the case and find a satisfactory response to the denial of justice that Zongo’s family and friends have suffered for so long.“On a broader level, this decision highlights the need to combat impunity for crimes against journalists throughout Africa, not just for the sake of the families of the victims but also, as the court said, to avoid creating a climate of fear in the media.”Based in the Tanzanian city of Arusha, the court condemned the failure to diligently investigate the murders, the unduly prolonged legal proceedings, the time the authorities took to question the victims’ families and the fact no further investigation was carried out after charges against the main suspect were dropped in 2006.The court gave both parties 30 days to submit arguments before it takes a decision on any reparations.Reporters Without Borders participated in the independent commission of enquiry that the government created on 18 December 1998 in response to a public outcry. In its findings, submitted to the prime minister on 7 May 1999, it concluded that the victims died in an “ambush” and “the motives for this quadruple murder should be sought in the investigations carried out over many years by the journalist, in particular, his recent investigations into the dead of David Ouédraogo, the driver of presidential adviser François Compaoré.”Burkina Faso is ranked 52nd out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.More information in Burkina Faso and the Norbert Zongo case Receive email alerts Follow the news on Burkina Faso April 3, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 African Court says Burkina Faso failed to investigate murder properly Two Spanish journalists killed in eastern Burkina Faso center_img June 7, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information RSF_en News April 27, 2021 Find out more News News May 5, 2021 Find out more Burkina FasoAfrica last_img read more
