The FTSE 100 recorded its biggest drop since August, falling 1.5 per cent yesterday to close at 5,690. The Dax dropped 1.2 per cent to close at 6,672 and the Eurostoxx 50 slipped 0.4 per cent to close at 2,810. In the US, the Dow Jones fell 1.6 per cent, to 11,023.50 – its lowest level in a month.Eurozone finance ministers will today meet for a second day of talks, with the likelihood of an Irish bailout at the top of the agenda.EU President Herman Van Rompuy yesterday spooked investors by saying that the crisis was a matter of “survival” for the EU’s institutions. He said: “If we don’t survive with the Eurozone, we will not survive with the European Union.”Funding for a bailout is most likely to come both from the EU and the International Monetary Fund, but there is also the possibility of bilateral loans from the UK, due to Britain’s heavy reliance on trade with Ireland. Chancellor George Osborne yesterday said he did not want to add to speculation by commenting.The latest shocks came as the Irish government yesterday disappointed markets by clearing its parliamentary schedule for a special statement and then failing to announce any measures to deal with its spiralling debt crisis.“What we are doing is discussing with our European partners as to what stabilisation (measures are)… necessary,” Prime Minister Brian Cowen said. He also tried to deflect pressure by saying that the insolvency crisis was in Ireland’s banking sector, not its public finances. However, the government has promised to guarantee all Irish bank debt. In response to Cowen, the yield on Irish ten-year bonds jumped back over 8.2 per cent and opposition leader Eamon Gilmore said: “I’m not quite sure why you made this statement today.”As fears grew that the Irish situation is becoming a European contagion, ten-year Portuguese and Spanish gilt yields also rose yesterday, to 6.8 per cent and 4.6 per cent respectively.Investors have now begun to question whether Portugal could be next. Its government was yesterday forced to deny that, like Germany, it has been pressuring Ireland to accept a bailout in order to calm the markets and save itself from a similar fate. The cost of Greek debt also rose as Austrian finance minister Josef Proell said that Austria would withhold its €190m contribution to the country’s rescue package until Greece fulfilled its promise to get its deficit down to 8.1 per cent of GDP for this year.

Why I think tech investment will be best in ‘new normal’ stock markets

first_imgWhy I think tech investment will be best in ‘new normal’ stock markets Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool.

Image source: Getty Images Whichever way I look at what’s going on right now with stock markets, I end up looking at tech investment.I admit, until a few days ago I was puzzled. Why had stocks performed so well since the March crash? Back in February, I felt that the markets were failing to price in the likely impact of Covid-19. Then, soon after they finally realised Covid wasn’t just a problem in other countries, they failed to price in the likelihood of a second wave of the virus.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…Second waveThe Spanish Flu of 1918–1920 came in three waves. The second claimed the most lives. Yet the markets seemed to dismiss the danger. It was like they were saying ‘that was the past, now is different’. Then news broke that Iran was experiencing a second wave, but they seemed to say ‘Iran is different’.Yesterday stock markets finally plummeted. In California, Texas, and Florida, new infections look to be in danger of growing exponentially again. Until yesterday, markets seemed to be ignoring this harsh reality. If we don’t see a second wave of Covid-19, I will be delighted, but surprised. That is why I do not expect any return to normality soon. Markets, by contrast, had been behaving as if normality was around the corner.I know it is a cliché to talk about a new normal, but that is what we are going to get. I want to make a prediction concerning a new cliché for the next six months – the Zoom economy. By the end of this year, we will all be fed up with hearing about the Zoom economy.Tech investment in the year of the Zoom economy Remote working is here, and across the world, people are discovering it’s not so bad. The new Zoom economy will see productivity finally grow at pre-2008 rates. There will be a hollowing out in city centres, automation will accelerate, output will recover reasonably quickly, but jobs won’t.Yet in one respect, markets have got it right. In one respect, super-higher valuations are justified. I refer to technology stocks. Tech investment has been a winning strategy these last few months, and there is a good reason for that.Whatever cliché you want to use to describe the post-Covid economy: new normal, Zoom economy, or something else, the companies that thrive will be those which provide the technology for this age. Cloud providers, smartphone companies, producers of apps, telemedicine firms, cybersecurity businesses, AI specialists, and companies that support digitisation will become the quality stocks post-Covid.In times of trouble, we often see a flight to quality. I think that in the new normal, quality will be tech, and tech investment will be the best investment strategy.

£10k to invest? I’d buy these FTSE 250 dividend shares in an ISA today

first_img£10k to invest? I’d buy these FTSE 250 dividend shares in an ISA today If you have £10,000, or any other amount, to invest today, then I highly recommend taking a look at FTSE 250 dividend shares.Unlike their larger blue-chip peers in the FTSE 100, many of these stocks may offer higher income and growth potential in 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…With that in mind, I’m going to highlight two FTSE 250 shares I think could be worth buying. FTSE 250 dividend sharesThe first company on my watch list is iron ore producer Ferrexpo (LSE: FXPO). This business has gone from strength to strength over the past six years. Earnings have increased at a compound rate of around 18% as the company has concentrated on improving the quality of its iron ore production and reducing costs.I expect earnings to increase further over the next few years. Governments around the world are currently planning large stimuli plans to increase economic activity following the coronavirus crisis. These actions may lead to increased demand for steel, which could push up the price of iron ore. That would help boost Ferrexpo’s bottom line and profit margins.The business is also very shareholder-friendly. It has consistently paid out a large chunk of profits to investors every year with dividends. City analysts don’t expect this trend to come to an end anytime soon. They’ve pencilled in a dividend yield of 11% for the current financial year.However, despite the company’s potential, shares in the FTSE 250 dividend stock are currently changing hands at a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) multiple of less than 4. That suggests the stock offers a wide margin of safety at current levels. As such, I think it could be a great addition to any portfolio of FTSE 250 dividend shares.Direct Line InsuranceThe second company I’ve got my eye on right now is Direct Line Insurance (LSE: DLG). This insurance giant has been a public company for less than a decade. Nevertheless, during this time it’s quickly established itself as an FTSE 250 dividend stock. City analysts are forecasting a dividend of 32.9p for the group’s current financial year. That suggests investors are in line for a near 12% yield.Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem as if this is sustainable. Direct Line has benefited this year as its customers have been driving less, which means the organisation has paid out less in insurance claims. With activity on the roads back to normal, it’s likely the group will see higher payouts in 2021.Still, despite this fact, analysts are forecasting a 23.9p dividend distribution in 2021. That gives a prospective dividend yield of 8.6% on the current share price. In addition to this attractive level of income, the stock also looks cheap. It’s dealing at a forward P/E of just 10.3. All of the above suggests to me Direct Line could be an attractive FTSE 250 income and growth investment for long-term ISA investors.

Apopka officer honored by Mothers Against Drunk Driving

first_img You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here Officer Ashley Eller of the Apopka Police Department was named the 2017 top honoree for MADD Hero for Drugged Driving Enforcement at a ceremony last week.On its Facebook page, the APD said this about Eller:“The Apopka Police Department would like to recognize one of our officers who has truly exemplified hard work and dedication to our community. Ofc Ashley Eller was awarded the 2017 top honoree for MADD Hero for Drugged Driving Enforcement. She has demonstrated a consistent passion for impaired driving enforcement. Ofc. Eller is the department’s go-to person for all DUI related incidents, especially when intoxicants (other than alcohol) may be involved. She has been a member of the department’s Traffic Homicide Unit for many years and in 2016 was certified as a DRE – Drug Recognition Expert. Ofc Eller never hesitates to look beyond alcohol as a contributing factor in DUI investigations. Her knowledge and expertise make her an invaluable asset to our agency and community. Great job Ashley, we are all proud of you!”Officer Eller was nominated by APD Officer, Officer Samuel Anderson of the APD nominated Eller for the honor. In his letter to MADD, he said this about his colleague: “Officer Eller has demonstrated a consistent passion for impaired driving enforcement. Officer Eller is our go-to person for all things DUI, especially when intoxicants other than alcohol may be involved.Officer Eller seeks and obtains advanced training, including completing the DRE course during 2016. Officer Eller also taught the NHTSA 24-hour SFSE course twice in 2016, and taught six new hire DUI enforcement classes in-house. Officer Eller conducted 21 DRE evaluations during 2016, including one medical rule-out for high blood sugar.Officer Eller has been a member of our Traffic/Traffic Homicide Unit for five years. Officer Eller never hesitates to look beyond alcohol as a contributing factor in DUI investigations. Her knowledge and expertise make her an invaluable asset to our agency and our Traffic Unit. We therefore nominate Officer Ashley Eller “MADD Hero for Drugged Driving Enforcement.”On its website, MADD congratulated Eller, and published this interview:“This year, we wanted to illustrate the significance of Mothers Against Drunk Driving State-Wide recognition and, most importantly, highlight the Heroes among us!In this interview, we feature Officer Ashley Eller with the Apopka Police Department.  Officer Eller was the 2017 top honoree for MADD Hero for Drugged Driving Enforcement. We recently met with Officer Eller and asked her for a bit more information.What was the significance/meaning of receiving Top Honoree at the 2017 MADD Florida Recognition Ceremony? For me, it’s been a passion project.  I became a DRE in 2016. Being nominated means that I am doing something right and making an impact in my community as well as honoring the DRE program.What was your reaction when you found out you were nominated?Honored doesn’t even begin to describe my reaction when I realized I was the top honoree.  I was on the same list as amazing DRE’s who are my heroes and mentors.  I mean ‘wow’!How did it feel when you found out you won?I thought I heard it wrong. Funny story; I didn’t buy my wife a ticket because I thought there was no way I was going to win this.  So, when they called my name, I thought my wife isn’t here, and boy am I in trouble, but at least Tim Cornelius, my hero, was in the audience.  As I was walking back to my seat after receiving the award, Tim stood up to congratulate and hug me. I had such a feeling of pride – one of the coolest things to happen to me. And, proud that someone of his caliber was happy that I received the award especially since I was a brand-new DRE!What led you to become a DRE? I believe in safer roadways and that drivers have a choice, and their choices affect others.  A big part for me was becoming a part of the Keri Anne DeMott Foundation.  Having people hear Bill DeMott share his story is changing lives and choices.  I believe that DRE’s inspire that.  I knew I wanted to be a DRE since 2006.  I did ride-a-longs with an old-time DRE and saw him make a difference. I wanted to be like him and be the change – hopefully making the world a better place.I owe a lot to the Keri Anne Demott Foundation.  They paid for me to attend the 2018 IPTM Symposium on Traffic Safety.   I want to make a difference for her.  My goal is to make 100 DUI arrests this year.  Her story inspires more cops than Bill will ever understand.If you could do one thing, leave one mark in the community, what would it be?I want to teach.  Education is empowerment –  it can change people.  Teach a cop or an offender, and it will change the world.  When I walk into my local hospital ER, the physician’s assistant will say, “Ok what are you going to teach me today.”  I enjoy teaching and hope to give people a better understanding of what we do as a DRE’s.  There is so much to having drugs in the body and why it’s unsafe; especially poly-drug use.  If I can educate and explain the complex job of a DRE, then I’ve done my job.  I like to watch young cops that I teach when their eyes get big as I explain DUI’s.  I mean, what are we here for if we don’t empower people?Will you be attending this year’s ceremony?Absolutely wouldn’t miss it.  I want to celebrate my brothers and sisters accomplishments!My biggest take away is education is empowerment – doing the right thing is always worth it; every single time.

Please enter your email address here Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 On This Day in History: June 26th, 1948From The History ChannelOn this day in 1948, U.S. and British pilots begin delivering food and supplies by airplane to Berlin after the city is isolated by a Soviet Union blockade.When World War II ended in 1945, defeated Germany was divided into Soviet, American, British and French zones of occupation. The city of Berlin, though located within the Soviet zone of occupation, was also split into four sectors, with the Allies taking the western part of the city and the Soviets the eastern. In June 1948, Josef Stalin’s government attempted to consolidate control of the city by cutting off all land and sea routes to West Berlin in order to pressure the Allies to evacuate. As a result, beginning on June 24 the western section of Berlin and its 2 million people were deprived of food, heating fuel and other crucial supplies.Though some in U.S. President Harry S. Truman’s administration called for a direct military response to this aggressive Soviet move, Truman worried such a response would trigger another world war. Instead, he authorized a massive airlift operation under the control of General Lucius D. Clay, the American-appointed military governor of Germany. The first planes took off from England and western Germany on June 26, loaded with food, clothing, water, medicine and fuel.By July 15, an average of 2,500 tons of supplies was being flown into the city every day. The massive scale of the airlift made it a huge logistical challenge and at times a great risk. With planes landing at Tempelhof Airport every four minutes, round the clock, pilots were being asked to fly two or more round-trip flights every day, in World War II planes that were sometimes in need of repair.The Soviets lifted the blockade in May 1949, having earned the scorn of the international community for subjecting innocent men, women and children to hardship and starvation. The airlift–called die Luftbrucke or “the air bridge” in German–continued until September 1949, for a total delivery of more than 1.5 million tons of supplies and a total cost of over $224 million. When it ended, the eastern section of Berlin was absorbed into Soviet East Germany, while West Berlin remained a separate territory with its own government and close ties to West Germany. The Berlin Wall, built in 1961, formed a dividing line between East and West Berlin. Its destruction in 1989 presaged the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union and marked the end of an era and the reemergence of Berlin as the capital of a new, unified German nation.For more information and for videos, go here.last_img read more

This house is for a family of three persons in the area of houses and fields spreading. Each life space is divided by the stone wall mined locally and by the radiated wall supporting big roof. Because the site is located at the end of a blind alley, it has atmosphere of comfortable deep-set. Moreover it has kind of openness. We can have glimpse of gardens, fields and laundries in next houses. People have good relationship and make the usual greetings over the gardens and come to see stepping over the stone fences in this area. Save this picture!© Fumihiko IkemotoIn there we designed the house which is enveloped and connected to surroundings. This house is not so much just a box as an enclosure. In some place the enclosure plays a role as exterior wall having an entrance, in other place as the stone fence having view to surroundings. The interior walls spread radially in the deformed enclosure. The family will live with irregular distance getting together, falling away and getting behind in that radiated walls. This radiated walls supporting big roof make different size of void and make the enveloped space with arch opening in the center of house. The slope of big roof and the deformed enclosure accentuate space of perspective. We can have the view point of spreading from the center at the same time leading to the center.Project gallerySee allShow lessThe Manta Underwater Room / Genberg Underwater HotelsSelected ProjectsTrattner Scharfetter Residence / LP ArchitekturSelected Projects Share Contractor: Projects Masuken Inc Japan photographs:  Fumihiko IkemotoPhotographs:  Fumihiko Ikemoto ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/454505/house-i-hiroyuki-shinozaki-architects Clipboard Architects: Hiroyuki Shinozaki Architects Area Area of this architecture project House I / Hiroyuki Shinozaki ArchitectsSave this projectSaveHouse I / Hiroyuki Shinozaki Architects Year:  Save this picture!© Fumihiko Ikemoto+ 12 Sharecenter_img Year:  CopyHouses•Tochigi, Japan 2013 House I / Hiroyuki Shinozaki Architects Structure Engineer: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/454505/house-i-hiroyuki-shinozaki-architects Clipboard 2013 Houses Area:  92 m² Area:  92 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Tatsumi Terado Structural Studio “COPY” CopyAbout this officeHiroyuki Shinozaki ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTochigiInteriorsHousesJapanPublished on December 05, 2013Cite: “House I / Hiroyuki Shinozaki Architects” 05 Dec 2013.

It is a work done with much love for a young and modern couple who wanted a comfortable, bright and different house. Casa GAS has been designed hand in hand with the clients, who from the first moment were personally involved in making their home as special and personal as possible, letting the architects work and listening to their advice, proposing ideas, participating of the exciting process that means to build your own house, to materialize a dream.Save this picture!Upper ViewThe project of this house came up when we tried to introduce everywhere the natural light in a not very big plot, in a corner, in a village in Toledo, central Spain. The architects decided to organize the housing program to satisfy the client’s needs in the most efficient and simplest possible way, always thinking in the natural light. For this purpose, they located four patios, designed and strategically placed in the plot, which are four light wells, four natural ventilation distributors, alternated throughout the site.Save this picture!© JosefotoinmoSave this picture!Section 3Save this picture!© JosefotoinmoAmong these patios grow volumes that reach different heights depending on the function they hold. Thus, the highest will be the one corresponding to the most “noble” living-dining area and the lowest to the garage. The house is white, clean, with simple and clean lines, with window holes strategically placed to enrich the composition of its vertical panels. But the facades of the courtyards could not be shown like the rest of the house, they are the “raison d’être” of the project, the heart of its architecture, that’s why we express its importance also in the materials that cover them, playing with some ceramic pieces, making them stand out and complete the composition of the whole house.Save this picture!Axonometric View 1Save this picture!© JosefotoinmoThe materials are fundamental always in the architecture, and in the case of this project one of them, the ceramics, becomes the protagonist: The traditional patios of La Mancha usually play in their lower part with ceramic baseboards that actually come from a much older tradition of the different Mediterranean cultures. The architects of OOIIO have gone around the traditional skirting boards, making now the upper part of the patio the one covered by hexagonal ceramic pieces and the lower part the one clean of them. A set of materials that accompanies the fall of light through the courtyards and brings a lot of personality to this housing project.Save this picture!Section 1Save this picture!Section 2The basement of the house that would normally be understood as a dark and closed place suddenly becomes a very special place, natural light falls through the four patios at once, becoming an open, fresh, protected and very bright floor. The work carried out with the interior design of the house served to complete and enhance everything expressed in the rest of the building, adapting at all times to the personality of the clients, achieving a project of a fresh, simple, original and fun housing.Save this picture!© JosefotoinmoProject gallerySee allShow lessHolmen Industrial Area / SnøhettaSelected ProjectsNew York City Pop-up Celebrates 40 Years of Zaha Hadid’s Design InnovationsArchitecture News Share “COPY” CopyHouses•Mora, Spainlast_img read more

Houston activists honor Mumia on his birthday

first_imgSupporters of Mumia Abu-Jamal gathered in Houston on his birthday, April 24, to demand his immediate release and the release of all political prisoners.“Mumia is a freedom fighter. He is a Panther. He is a captive of the state, because they want to kill him. It is up to all of us to fight for his freedom to get him out of that prison,” John “Bunchy” Crear told a crowd gathered at historic Emancipation Park. Houston, April 24Crear joined the Black Panther Party as a youth, similar to Mumia, and condemned the decades of incarceration for so many Panthers, now elderly with medical issues. Crear was joined at the mic by three other Panthers: James Aaron, Yusef Omowale and Claude Frost. Aaron took over as chair of the Houston Panthers after white police officers assassinated Carl Hampton July 26, 1970. Another Houston Panther, Sandra Netter, sent her greetings and solidarity with Mumia from her bed in a local hospital. Fanci Dee took the mic to say, “I’m here today because last summer after George Floyd’s murder, I was kidnapped by the police, along with hundreds of other protesters. Ever since then, I have been thinking about why this fight is so important to me. George Floyd should be alive. Dante Wright should be alive. We need to abolish the police, to abolish prisons, to abolish the death penalty. We are stronger together, and we can create a world without police and prisons where people can thrive and live and be happy.”Minister Abdul Haleem Muhammad with the Nation of Islam said, “When I think of Mumia, I think of Shaka Sankofa. I think of Clarence Brandley. We don’t know if we could survive being innocent and being on death row. Mumia was a Panther, and you had to be bold to be a Panther. I think about the Panthers. They were not about guns. They were about feeding the children, educating the children, giving health care to the elders in the community. Our unity is more powerful than an atomic bomb, so we must unite to free Mumia now!”Several poems were spoken by Brown Beret Johnny Torres, a Chicano wordsmith treasured by all Houston activists.              Delia Perez Meyer sang “Las Mañanitas,” a traditional song which Mexicans sing to honor a loved one on their birthday. Then everyone enjoyed a slice of cake that read “Free Mumia Now!”The event was sponsored by the Texas Death Penalty Abolition Movement, the Black Panther Party Alumni Association, Workers World Party and Party for Socialism and Liberation.Photo Credit: PSL FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Human rights activist held since giving interview to Al-Jazeera two weeks ago

first_img TunisiaMiddle East – North Africa Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information News RSF_en Reporters Without Borders condemns the continuing detention of Tarek Soussi, a member of the International Association for the Support of Political Prisoners (AISPP), who was arrested two weeks ago after giving an interview to pan-Arab satellite TV station Al-Jazeera. He is now facing a possible three-year jail sentence for “spreading false news liable to disturb public order.”“The Tunisian authorities continue to impose the law of silence,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Those who dare to break the rule go straight to prison. The government’s strict control of news and information is being challenged by the satellite TV stations, to which Tunisians turn for independent news, as in Soussi’s case. The press freedom organisation added: “Soussi would never have been allowed to say what he said if he had gone to a state TV station. The charge brought against him is absurd and is above all designed to deter all those who might otherwise dare to follow his example and speak to the foreign news media.”Soussi’s lawyers said he was treated in a “humiliating” manner when he was brought before an investigating judge in Bizerte (60 km north of Tunis) on 3 September. Aged 48, he walks with crutches as a result of being badly mistreated during a spell in prison in the early 1990s but he was not allowed to use them for the hearing and policemen carried him into the courtroom.His wife told Reporters Without Borders she is very worried about his state of health. His lawyers submitted a request for his provisional release, but the request has not yet been considered and no date has yet been set for the next hearing.No warrant was shown when Soussi was arrested at his home in Bizerte on 27 August by around 10 plain-clothes policemen, who forced their way in after one of them posed as an electricity company employee. His arrest came one day after he gave a phone interview for Al Jazeera’s news programme about the Maghreb countries (see Arabic-language video) in which he criticised the arrest of seven people. ©Al-Jazeera – Extract from its Maghreb news programme – 26 August 2008 Organisation September 9, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Human rights activist held since giving interview to Al-Jazeera two weeks ago News Tunisia : RSF asks Tunisian president’s office to respect journalists November 12, 2019 Find out more TunisiaMiddle East – North Africa Eleven organizations from civil society create the Forum on Information & Democracy, a structural response to information disorder November 11, 2020 Find out more News Follow the news on Tunisia Forum on Information and Democracy 250 recommendations on how to stop “infodemics” December 26, 2019 Find out more News to go furtherlast_img read more
