Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The FTSE 100’s recent market crash isn’t the first time the index has experienced severe declines in its price level. Since its inception in 1984, the index has fallen heavily on a number of occasions. Following each of them, it has produced a successful recovery. Every time, share buyers have been handsomely rewarded.As such, investors who’ve a long time horizon may benefit from buying FTSE 100 shares now while they’re trading on low valuations. Okay, this strategy could produce paper losses in the short run. But it may also improve your prospects of retiring early.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Past performanceAs mentioned, the FTSE 100’s past performance includes a number of bear markets. Notable downturns for the index occurred in 1987, the early 2000s, and the global financial crisis. During each of those periods, the index declined to exceptionally low levels. It felt at the time as through a recovery was very unlikely.However, over time, the index did recover from its bear-market lows. On occasions, it experienced brief rallies during its downturns. But they proved to be false dawns for investors. However, over the long run, the index has generally recorded growth in its price level. And that’s very likely to be repeated in the coming years.Long time horizonOf course, investing during the FTSE 100’s downturns has been a risky short-term strategy. On a number of occasions during its previous downturns the index has experienced a large amount of volatility that has caused paper losses for investors.At the present time, the index’s near-term prospects are highly linked to the re-opening of the global economy following the end of coronavirus. Since nobody knows when this will occur and, of course, whether there’ll be a second lockdown later this year due to a potential further outbreak, investors may experience disappointing returns in the short run.However, if you’ve a long time horizon then the short-term performance of your portfolio is unlikely to be your primary concern. Investing in cheap stocks that have strong balance sheets may mean that the uncertain near-term outlook is a worthwhile risk in return for the long-term recovery prospects of the FTSE 100.Starting todayWhile the risks present across the economy may mean that now doesn’t seem to be the right time to start buying FTSE 100 shares, a recovery is only obvious after it has occurred. In other words, buying stocks after the index has exited its bear market may mean that you miss out on a sizeable proportion of their gains.Therefore, adopting a long-term investment view and buying a selection of FTSE 100 shares now could be a sound move. It may improve your financial prospects and help to bring your retirement date a step or two closer. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997”center_img Enter Your Email Address 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 this way, the basalt stone covers a compact volume and its gabble roof is covered by soil and a carpet of plants: the roof is a part of the garden.Save this picture!© Lluís CasalsThe plants are organized through an access courtyard (tilted to the setting sun) towards which the indoor swimming pool and kitchen are pointed. Through a corridor people can go into the interior through this courtyard (plant-lined at an inferior level) from the south side. The interior is planned as a roomy space, flexible by means of folding and sliding doors that can be used as hall, sitting-room, dining-room and also study room.

  • On the campaign road to revolution

    first_imgParticipants in the Oct. 23 discussion, with one holding out the WWP campaign program.Monica Moorehead, Workers World Party’s 2016 presidential candidate, hit the road for socialist revolution again with a campaign meeting in Syracuse, N.Y., on Oct. 23.A serious and enthusiastic crowd of activists and organizers heard Moorehead speak on a wide range of issues, including WWP’s commitment to the Black Lives Matter movement; the connection between the fight to end white supremacy and the right to self-determination of oppressed peoples and nations; and the battle to end U.S. imperialist wars.Moorehead emphasized that the path to socialism must be based on building broad solidarity and unity with struggles like #NoDAPL in Standing Rock, N.D.; the rebellions in Charlotte, N.C., Baltimore and Milwaukee against police terror; and the continuing struggle against deportations of migrant workers and families. She noted this solidarity must include fighting LGBTQ oppression, like the struggle against HB2, the anti-trans, anti-worker hate law in North Carolina.“The current global economic crisis with fewer jobs,” said Moorehead, “is making youth of color more expendable and thus more susceptible to police murder and mass incarceration. That capitalist crisis is the basis for the growing police war against Black, Brown and Indigenous youth. We must fight to abolish the police as a repressive force.”Moorehead stressed, “To respond, we need a unified left without sectarianism, and we need to build a progressive movement independent of any bourgeois political party.”An in-depth, two-hour discussion then followed among the multinational attendees, most in their twenties and thirties, where participants both voiced their concerns and thoughtfully explored strategy and theory on how to move forward.Present were members of a number of organizations, including the local Black Lives Matter group, the Palestine Solidarity Collective, the Radical Education Collective and the Workers’ Center of Central New York. Those in the discussion came not only from the U.S., but also had roots in the Dominican Republic, Mexico, India, Palestine, Puerto Rico, Haiti and other Caribbean nations.Key organizers were there from the General Body’s militant 2014 occupation of Syracuse University’s administration building. Also participating were a United Auto Workers Local 774 member leading the struggle against racism at his GM plant near Buffalo; and a teacher active in the recent big union win by the Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties, whose united full-time faculty and adjuncts struck at 14 colleges.The Moorehead/Lilly WWP presidential and vice presidential candidates have obtained official status as write-in candidates on New York state ballots in the Nov. 8 general election.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

  • U.S. Soybeans Making Big Progress in EU

    first_img SHARE Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News U.S. Soybeans Making Big Progress in EU By NAFB News Service – Jan 1, 2019 While U.S. soybean sales to China suffered in 2018, they’re making some headway across the Atlantic Ocean. On the 50th anniversary of the soybean industry’s development efforts in the European Union, the United States has outpaced Brazil as the number one supplier to the continent. The website ussoy.org (U.S. Soy) says America is also the top soybean supplier to the Middle East and North Africa. Farmers and industry officials say the challenge is to make sure the growth that began as a result of the trade dispute with China keeps going in the right direction.Brazil soybeans are currently fetching a big premium. Government data says Brazil soybeans are getting $89 per metric ton more, on average, than U.S. oilseeds were last month, due to Chinese demand. A drought also dramatically cut production and meal output in Argentina, the world’s top exporter in 2017. As a result, U.S. soybeans and meal exports are up 243 percent and 105 percent, respectively, to Europe and the Middle East/North Africa regions. Countries like Egypt, Spain, Saudi Arabia, and many others have either increased their soybean purchases or have become new customers.Source: NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter U.S. Soybeans Making Big Progress in EU SHARE Previous articleWhat Hemp Legalization in Farm Bill Means for Indiana on the HAT Monday Morning EditionNext articleData the Key to Better Yield and Profits in 2019 NAFB News Servicelast_img read more

  • Second Swedish Gotland sub launched after mid-life upgrade

    first_imgHSwMS Uppland, the second of two Royal Swedish Navy Gotland-class submarines, was launched at Saab’s Karlskrona shipyard on June 19.The relaunch of the second air independent propulsion (AIP) submarine took place almost exactly 12 months after the first unit was relaunched as part of the upgrade.The mid-life upgrades saw the submarines receive an additional 2 meter hull section to accommodate the third generation of the Stirling air-independent propulsion engine and a diver lock-out chamber in addition to combat management and ship management systems upgrades.“Few shipyards around the world have the experience of completely modifying a submarine, creating almost a new ship. We are the only one having completed it twice within 12 months, first with HMS Gotland and now HMS Uppland,” said Gunnar Wieslander, Senior Vice President, head of Saab business area Kockums.The updated version of Uppland and her sister ship Gotland are paving the way for the next generation of Swedish AIP submarines: the Blekinge-class (A26).More than 20 new systems on-board the new Gotland-class will be implemented in the A26, which contributes to their de-risking for the A26. This also gives great training opportunities for the crew when they in the future deploy onboard the A26.Manned by a crew of 25, HMS Uppland now measures 62 meters in length and displaces 1,580 tons (surfaced). It was built by Kockums in Malmö in the early 1990’s and commissioned in 1997.

  • Students to Get Paid to Learn; Potential for Job Offer Through New Manufacturing…

    first_imgSkill UP Indiana!, a unique manufacturing program allowing students to learn and earn, began taking applications today (Jan. 19) thanks to the collaboration of local industry, community, education, and business partners in the newly created Southwest Indiana Workforce Coalition (SWIWC). This news was announced during a news conference at the Southwest Indiana Chamber offices, by Ivy Tech Community College Southwest Chancellor Jonathan Weinzapfel. Skill UP is designed to educate and inform students, and will pay students $12.50 per hour during their entire enrollment in the 11-week program, which includes five weeks of class time (40 hours per week) as well as on-the-job learning training, and potential for direct hire with local companies.“We are excited to spearhead this initiative that can potentially change the way employers hire in the future,” Weinzapfel said. “Giving potential employees the opportunity to learn skills and habits essential to the manufacturing workforce will hopefully have a positive hiring, retention, and advancement impact for local business and industry.” Targeted participants include high school youth, and unemployed/underemployed adult workers. An application can be found at www.ivytech.edu/skillup. Classes begin March 6, 2017.In late 2016, Ivy Tech Southwest received a grant for the Skill UP Indiana! Program totaling $666,506 from the Indiana Department of Workforce Development to provide sector-focused training and education programs for in-demand occupations in the Southwest region. Skill UP will focus on this region’s third largest area for employment opportunities – advanced manufacturing. Manufacturing in Southwest Indiana is expected to grow by 5.8% during the next decade and the field is experiencing a gap in employment due to the aging workforce and brain drain within existing talent; a challenged work ethic of incoming generations, as well as high turnover of under-skilled, uninformed workers, and misperceptions regarding manufacturing work. Regional employers have expressed a need for programs outside of the standard post-secondary education academic model to train and retrain workers in order for their sector to maintain a competitive edge in an ever changing marketplace.Weinzapfel said that the Indiana Chamber’s most recent annual employer workforce survey noted that 45% of jobs remain unfilled due to a lack of qualified applicants.“The SWIWC is committed to educating and preparing this region’s middle to high school youth and adult workers through educational and experiential training; as well as development and personal empowerment to generate a thriving employee in the advanced manufacturing industry,” said Bo Drake, executive director of workforce development.SWIWC partners include:  ORG CHEM Group, BWX Technologies, Inc., FLANDERS, Junior Achievement of Southwestern Indiana, Koch Enterprises, Inc., Toyota Motor Manufacturing Indiana, Toyota Boshoku Indiana, LLC., Wabash Plastics, Berry Plastics, Mead Johnson Nutrition, WorkOne Southwest, and Ivy Tech Community College Southwest. Additional opportunities for other business and industry involvement is available.Junior Achievement of Southwest Indiana is creating an Advanced Manufacturing curriculum to be delivered in area schools to help create awareness in the types of jobs and careers in the field, Drake said.“The Southwest Indiana Workforce Coalition has developed an expansive plan for Southwest Indiana to not only educate students in manufacturing, preparing them for good paying jobs available in industry in our communities – but also to compensate them during these class times, so that they can continue to meet their personal and family needs,” Weinzapfel said.“We know that an obstacle to receiving more education for a better paying job, is that folks must keep working the jobs that they have, in order to meet their basic needs. This plan will allow them to begin their classes at Ivy Tech, and also have the guarantee of being able to meet with local employers; job shadow with these employers, and have a potential career path laid out for them.”Through the New Hoosier Apprenticeship Model, a combination of training, education, career counseling, group activities, and on-the-job learning, will take place with the goal of improving employee retention and reduce turnover from the misaligned and temporary workforces.Training Will Include:Fundamental workforce skills – also referred to as soft skillsOSHA 10-hour general industry certification – teaching safety awareness and reducing jobsite hazardsSouthwest Indiana Manufacturing Training, also referred to as Manufacturing Skills Standards Certification (MSSC) – this is a nationally recognized certification, which can be used toward 6 credit hours of a college Advanced Manufacturing Certificate at Ivy TechOn-the-job work – the participant will work for 6 weeks, 40 hours per week, at a manufacturer.“The program also has a goal of addressing some negative perceptions of manufacturing, as well as attracting qualified applicants who may already be in careers that are not a good fit. An informational campaign is planned to help distribute facts about manufacturing, rather than continue conjecture,” Drake said. “This will culminate with a recruitment event conducted by the Southwest Indiana Workforce Coalition companies and Ivy Tech.”This project is one of 12 from across the state that was selected by the Indiana Department for Workforce Development who provided a total of $7.7 million in funding.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more
