Should I buy FTSE 100 shares?

first_img 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.

See all posts by T Sligo Should I buy FTSE 100 shares? “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Buying FTSE 100 shares at the moment might seem like too big a risk. With the recent turbulence of the FTSE 100, many investors are questioning their investment strategy and whether now is the right time to buy into the index.As we look to what the future might hold, it is a valid question to ask. The IMF has stated that if the coronavirus crisis peaks in Q2, the total loss to the global economy could be $9trn, which is more than the economies of Germany and Japan combined.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…Since the start of the year, the FTSE 100 has dropped by over 25%. Of course, this is not the first time the market has dropped significantly.Although the past might not repeat itself, in situations like these it can be helpful to look at historical events and to question how the market reacted when it fell last time. These answers could help us to gauge what might happen in the future.The FTSE 100 fallsMarket corrections tend to happen every year or two. However, the last time the FTSE 100 lost a significant proportion of its value was in 2008. From August 2008 to March 2009, the index lost roughly 30%.However, as many people were moving away from shares, some people were buying.If you were a contrarian in 2009 and bought FTSE 100 stocks, today you would be sitting on a profit of roughly 50%, not including dividend payments or fees.Going back further, there was another significant fall in the FTSE 100’s value from March 2002 to the start of 2003. Back then, the index fell by roughly 30%. If you bought FTSE 100 shares back then and still held them, you would have seen gains of 58%, not including fees or dividends. Once again, the market favoured those investing with optimism and for the long term.Back then, there were similar headlines to what we are seeing today. People predicted the worst for stocks, and yet share prices still recovered.However, predicting what the market is going to do and only buying at the low points is impossible.Another way to buy FTSE 100 sharesThe last thing any investor wants to do is part with a lump sum of money and see the value of their holdings fall the next day.I would guess that these nerves are what puts off most people from buying FTSE 100 shares.There is another way to buy stocks without worrying about timing the market, called pound cost averaging. This can be achieved by setting up a schedule of regular purchases your chosen shares or index fund.By pound cost averaging, you will ride the stock market, buying shares when they are at high and low points, which should average out over the long term.Although many investors are feeling nervous at the moment, I believe that with the recent market crash, now could truly be a great opportunity to start buying FTSE 100 shares.center_img I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Tutu, Southern Africa bishops issue unprecedented joint statement on coronavirus

first_imgTutu, Southern Africa bishops issue unprecedented joint statement on coronavirus Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY [Desmond & Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation] On March 17, the three living archbishops of the Anglican Church of Southern Africa, Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, Archbishop Emeritus Njongonkulu Ndungane and Archbishop Thabo Makgoba, issued an unprecedented joint statement appealing to people across Southern Africa to beat the coronavirus by working closely together.The text of the statement follows:The three of us, as former and current Anglican Archbishops of Cape Town, welcome and encourage the strong evidence we are seeing of all Southern Africans working together to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus across our sub-continent.If proof was required of the oneness and interdependence of the human family, the threat posed by this virus – and people’s response to it – is providing it. To stop the virus spreading will demand fundamental changes in the behavior of all of us.The virus has no boundaries – it cuts across all communities, rich and poor, in north, south, east and west. Only mutual love and care for one another will get us through the crisis.But there is no need to panic. As President Ramaphosa has said, we do have the knowledge, the means and the resources to fight this virus, and if we act quickly and collectively, we can limit its effects. We are resilient and in the past we have overcome challenges by remaining calm and being strategic in our responses.To young people we say we know you are not scared for yourselves, and some of you may feel that coronavirus is not an African problem. But you might be carriers of the virus without even knowing it. So we appeal to you not to put at risk the lives of those who cared for you when you were children. We know that you are being asked to sacrifice the most for your old people. But please protect those of your parents’ and grandparents’ generation.Let us take the opportunity to respond by choosing life over death; by choosing knowledge over ignorance; by sharing that knowledge; and by caring about others through taking care of ourselves.As President Ramaphosa has also said, this epidemic has the potential to bring us closer together. But, in his words, it demands  “cooperation, collaboration and common action. More than that, it requires solidarity, understanding and compassion.” We know that we can rely on people of all faiths and of none to bring those qualities to this struggle.May God bless Southern Africa, and God bless all her people,The Most Rev.

In the village of Frastanz – Gampelün, the clients had the opportunity to build their home on parental property. The stable building of the stately farmhouse was dismantled and in its place a three-story residential tower and a neighbouring patio with a carport got situated. The building is set on the hillside, so that a public site is created in context to two adjoining gorgeous farmhouses. The house is a contemporary answer to the surrounding farmhouses and creates a new building ensemble. Ecological and economic sustainability are consistently pursued concerns. The timber structure got built entirely from wood of the client’s private property, chopped at a suitable phase of moon.Save this picture!© Adolf BereuterThe façade is untreated timber, all inner wooden surfaces got soaped three times. All craftsmen, building materials and technology got ordered and produced from a radius of max. 50 kilometres. In contrast to the richly ornamented farmhouses, the new building is designed as a distinct and reduced structure. The building’s square footprint underlines its simplicity. The combination of the wooden cube of the upper floors and the massive concrete base shape the tower. The upper floors, made of solid wood, rest on three wooden columns.Save this picture!© Adolf BereuterSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Adolf BereuterThis enables to create a ground floor with an overwhelming panoramic view to the outside from kitchen, dining and living area. In contrast to the panoramic view on the ground floor, the views on the upper floors are targeted through windows precisely set into the facade. The unusual shape of the horizontally layered wooden beams, create a contemporary wooden structure in a traditional environment.Save this picture!© Adolf BereuterThe reinforced concrete structure of the patio and carport acts as a link to the existing building. The organically shaped roof links the new to the old house, the inside to the garden. As mentioned, the house got built entirely from wood of the client’s private forests. Walls and ceilings are made of 24 cm thick, solid spruce wood, so as the façade. Fir was used for windows, furniture and the acoustic ceiling, beech for the floors and stairs, and elm for furniture and the outdoor seating area of the patio. In addition to wood, white clay plastered ceilings and black steel of the book shelf in the staircase are used as additional materials.Save this picture!© Adolf BereuterSave this picture!© Adolf BereuterThe clients great- grandparents built the neighboring farmhouse from their own wood and then reforested the forests.

Wadiya Jamal describes visit with Mumia

first_imgWadiya Jamal and Mumia Abu-JamalOn April 9, Wadiya Jamal visited her spouse, Mumia Abu-Jamal, at SCI Mahanoy. Here are excerpts from her account of that visit.I had seen Mumia in the ICU at the hospital, where he was sitting upright, handcuffed to a chair. I saw the photos taken of Mumia during the visit on Monday, April 6, with my sister Pam Africa, I Abdul Jon and Johanna Fernandez. I cried when I saw those photos.  But I still wasn’t prepared for how Mumia looked seeing him in the prison visiting room. He was worse. I felt my husband is about to die.Later on, after the three-hour visit with Mumia, we were guests on NMEMINDZ Radio with Professor Griff and co-host ZaZa Ali. To you all who love and support Mumia, here are some edited excerpts and an update on Mumia’s medical condition.Mumia had to bring himself down to the visiting room from the prison infirmary in an old wheelchair, not motorized, had to use his arms that were weak and in pain; his breathing was labored.I was in shock at how he looked. We embraced and kissed. When I saw him reading legal papers his hands were shaking hard. I put my hands on his hands and tried to steady him so he could read the information. He was shivering so hard, my hands were shaking as well. I put my arms around him and my head to his chest to hear his heart and to bring some warmth to his body because he said he was freezing. And then the guard comes and tells us, “No hugging.” I was just trying to keep him warm.My husband is innocent. He killed no one. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, his only crime is he survived a severe gunshot to the chest and a serious ass-whipping by “Philly’s finest” and then they attempted to kill him in his hospital bed by stepping on his urine bag and flushing the poison back on him. And now they are trying to do it again.The way my husband looks today, it looks like they are going to succeed, unless we get some real doctors up there to take care of him. Mumia’s life is at risk. It is execution by medical neglect and mistreatment. The only way I see that Mumia is going to survive this is if he is free, because I can’t trust any of them.Mumia didn’t have a history of diabetes. Did you see the picture of Mumia, before his illness, how strong he is, how big he is? You see the difference in him now?!! I’ve never seen him so weak like this in my life. You have to understand that I am angry. I’m hurting. I could feel his shoulder blades — that’s how thin he is. I was rubbing his thighs and I could feel the scabs underneath the jump suit. Whatever this stuff is, it is killing Mumia — and it’s on purpose.Please, please, please, I beg of everybody to help my husband get free, because he is dying in there. He just needs to be home. He should never have been in prison to start off. Not a day.To demand adequate health care for Mumia, go to Also check Mumia Abu-Jamal on Facebook for more information.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

EU court enshrines “right to be forgotten” in Spanish case against Google

first_img Respect judicial independence in cases of two leading journalists in Serbia and Montenegro, RSF says Help by sharing this information to go further Europe – Central Asia News Freedom of information has been violated by the ruling that the Luxembourg-based Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) issued yesterday in the case that a Spanish citizen, Mario Costeja, brought against Google. Receive email alerts Europe – Central Asia May 14, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 EU court enshrines “right to be forgotten” in Spanish case against Google News “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says June 8, 2021 Find out more The CJEU has ruled that search engines must delete links from their results if requested by individuals on the grounds that it violates their privacy, and that this obligation is valid even if the information has not been deleted from the linked site and does not contravene any law.This decision makes it possible for anyone to have information they don’t like withdrawn from the search engine results of searches about themselves, said Grégoire Pouget, the head of the Reporters Without Borders New Media desk.From now on anyone will be able to demand that the results show only the information that suits them, even when they were legitimately and legally quoted in a press report. They will be able to craft a digital image that does not conform to published reports. Will this right be extended from people to entities, taking us into a world where all information is manipulatedIndividuals will henceforth be able to use European Union Directive 95/46 on the protection of personal data (Directive 95/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 24 October 1995 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data (OJ 1995 L 281, p. 31))] to ask search engines to delete results about themselves, not because the linked content is illegal but simply because they regard it as prejudicial to their interests. And if search engines fail to comply, individuals will be able to ask relevant national authorities to enforce their request.The case dates back to March 2012, when Costeja filed [a complaint with the Spanish Data Protection Agency (AEPD) against Google and the newspaper La Vanguardia after discovering that a Google search for his name produced results referring to the auction of real estate property seized from him for non-payment of social security contributions. He did not dispute the veracity of the linked information but regarded it as old and no longer relevant.The AEPD rejected Costeja’s complaint against the newspaper on the grounds that the information on its site had been published legally and was protected by the right to information. But it upheld his complaint against Google on privacy grounds, ordering the search engine to eliminate about 100 links from all future searches for Costeja’s name. When Google appealed, Spain’s National Court asked the CJUE for an interpretation of the European law on online data protection. In response, CJUE advocate-general Niilo Jääskinen issued a preliminary finding on 25 June 2013, in which he said that the European directive on data protection does not establish a “right to be forgotten” and that such a right cannot be used in an attempt to get search engines to suppress information.Completely contradicting this initial finding, the CJEU ruled yesterday that search engines are responsible for the personal data displayed in their results in searches for an individual’s name, even when the data is stored on other websites.

Automakers are also heavily investing in the development of electric vehicles, leading to increased sales of these vehicles. Charging is the key concern in the case of electric vehicles. While the wired charging method is generally utilized to charge such vehicles, it comes with drawbacks such as safety concerns in a wet environment as well as messy wires. The increasing number of EVs globally is expected to drive the automotive segment of the wireless charging market by 2026. APAC is projected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period. APAC is expected to be the fastest-growing market for the wireless charging market due to the presence of developing countries such as India and China.

Mysterious burst of light, loud boom puzzles Washington state residents

first_imgblackdovfx/iStock/Thinkstock(MONTESANTO, Wash.) — A bright burst of light illuminated the horizon over western Washington state Wednesday night, followed by a loud boom that shook the ground, according to several reports, leaving both residents and officials puzzled.Local officials in Grays Harbor County received hundreds of calls about the incident, the cause of which remains a mystery.The county’s Division of Emergency Management said it contacted the National Weather Service in Seattle, which said there was not a severe weather event in the area at the time of the reported “ground shaking, loud boom and flash of light in the sky.”The Washington State Duty Officer also contacted the Federal Aviation Administration and the Western Air Defense Sector, but both said they did not have any problems on their end.“There was no earthquake. There are no reports of explosions or crashes on the ground,” the Grays Harbor County’s Division of Emergency Management said in a statement Wednesday night. “We will continue our investigation of the incident.”A surveillance camera situated outside a home in Grays Harbor County captured the flash on black-and-white footage as it lit up the night sky.Grays Harbor County Sheriff Rick Scott said he saw “a huge flash of what appeared to be orange light” while he was driving, but he didn’t hear the boom or feel the ground shaking.“Whatever it was, was a huge, huge burst of bright light,” Scott told ABC’s Seattle affiliate KOMO. “It took up the entire horizon.”The sheriff’s office did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for additional comment Thursday.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
