The stock market crash has taken down many shares in the FTSE 100. And, although uncertainty fills the air, I reckon many of these great companies will survive the crisis and thrive afterwards.Indeed, looking back from five or 10 years into the future, I’m sure we’ll recognise many stocks today as selling at bargain prices. I’d buy some of them now and hold for the long term.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…FTSE 100 bargainsFor example, plumbing and heating products supplier Ferguson is still trading and will be poised to spring back to full speed as soon as the crisis abates. Likewise, British American Tobacco will be unlikely to see much of a dent in its revenue because of coronavirus.Meanwhile, housebuilder Persimmon has experienced significant disruption to its business. But the firm’s cash-flush balance sheet will likely see it through. When the crisis is over, the company will probably resume brisk and profitable trading.However, to make the most of the crisis and to maximise the potential for future gains from FTSE 100 shares, we need to act when the outlook remains murky. The stock market tends to look ahead. So, by the time everything looks rosy again, shares have often bounced back up.I watched a recent interview featuring an unruffled Warren Buffett. Just like everyone else, he doesn’t know where this crisis is going. But he reckons he expected it. Not this crisis exactly, but a crisis. They’ve happened periodically throughout all the decades he’s been investing, he said. And it hasn’t stopped him making billions from the markets.Interestingly, Buffett reckons he had ‘pandemic’ written down on his list of possible setbacks. And that’s unsurprising considering we’ve seen the likes of the coronavirus crisis before. I watched an interesting docu-drama recently about the 1918 flu pandemic. My impression was that it was far worse in its effects than today’s crisis. Many millions more died, for example, and it flared up towards the end of the first world war.Markets will recoverYet despite heaping misfortune and misery upon misfortune and misery, the world recovered from the flu pandemic of the early twentieth century. Not only did the economies of the world survive, but they also went on to thrive and grow. And Buffett makes the point in the interview I watched that periodic set-backs have never stopped massive economic and technological progress before. And this crisis will be unlikely to stop future progress.For me, Buffett’s message is clear. I think now is a great time to sift through lists of fallen FTSE 100 shares to identify the strongest players. I’ve mentioned three examples above, but there are many that attract me as well.Now is the time to build up your watch list and drill down into the opportunities available in the markets with a healthy dose of Doing Your Own Research.

That these acts have been occurring in increasing numbers is undeniable. One need only watch the evening news for proof. While our country is attempting to curb the outbreak of a physical disease, we must, at the same time, defeat the unholy acts of racist terrorism occurring too frequently in our cities around the country. These acts have facilitated the inequalities that have permitted and enabled the disproportionate number of victims of Covid who are People of Color.Minneapolis is only the latest in a series of ongoing events. For every Ahmaud Arbery, Christian Cooper, George Floyd and Breonna Taylor who have been attacked, there are many more whose families must grieve that their child’s only “crime” was growing up black.As baptized Christians and agents of justice, it is our mission to call out acts of violence and racism when and where and however we see them; to name it for what it is — a sin.

The building is located in the hinterland of Cagliari, in one of the smaller towns developed in the 60s and 70s of the twentieth century and lacking in the quality of construction and form. From these boundary conditions, the design of new residential building comes with a strong propensity to volumetric rigor and close to context, in an attempt to create a new urban rule capable of suggesting new scenarios of order and thoroughness. This attitude translates into an architecture characterized by strict volumes, almost entirely closed to the public roads, with small windows on the street and large openings to the courtyard facing south.Save this picture!Courtesy of Pierluigi Dessì / ConfinivisiviThe articulation of the building is played using two materials: perforated panels of galvanized steel and cement plaster white. The masses have to find a balance between the densification of the solid volumes and the increasing scarcity of matter, where the box opens to reveal the condominium common areas, stripped from the machinations of perforated steel panels. While the closing of the “hard” parts construction translates into nearly private rooms facing the courtyard facing south, on the other spaces of the building open to the street and occur in the plots of paths distribution leading to the apartments and underlying garages. The continuity and rigor stereometric wrap perforated plate is interrupted by a septum-projecting balcony, the only disturbing element in the balance between “mass” and “skin”. Save this picture!Courtesy of Pierluigi Dessì / ConfinivisiviThe sheet metal facade has a dual function: first is the element that determines the continuity of the street alignments required by building regulations, municipal by another constitutes a deterrent to intruders, without hiding the paths of the common parts of functional ‘building. Some panels of sheet metal furniture allows entry to the building and access road to a clear sequence of ramps and stairs.

NewsCommunityPoliticsCouncil must walk the walk on Askeaton Slí na SláinteBy Alan Jacques – February 9, 2019 812 Deputy Tom Neville on an overgrown section of the Askeaton Sl na SlinteLIMERICK City and County Council has been told to uphold their commitment to the Outdoor Recreation Scheme and come up with the €29,620 required for the permanent surfacing of the Askeaton Slí na Sláinte walkway.Fine Gael TD Tom Neville explained that the Government recently approved funding of €118,480 for Askeaton Slí na Sláinte under the Outdoor Recreation Scheme through the Department of Rural and Community Development.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up A condition of the grant is that the final 20 per cent (€29,620) was to be funded through Limerick City and County Council’s own resources.“As the Council have applied for the Department grant, they must now fulfil their side of the equation and immediately sanction the 20 per cent funding to get this project going,” Deputy Neville told the Limerick Post.“I have been campaigning for a permanent surface for over two years, a period of which the people of Askeaton and the surrounding area have had too long to wait. They have had to put up with weeds moss and overgrown scrub year in and year out. There has been no works done on the walkway as the application for this permanent project has cited,” he claimed.Deputy Neville welcomed the local authority’s recognition of the project by their application to the department but he does not want to see the project delayed now by the Council themselves.“The power to get this project moving is now fully in Limerick City and County Council’s hands. The Government have recognised the validity of the project and the Council must now make it happen.“I am calling for an immediate start to the project with a timeline of works with an estimated completion date. The people of Askeaton and surrounding parishes have waited far too long for this to happen and its now imperative that its made happen. The Council must make this permanent solution and reality immediately.”A spokesman for the local authority said they were delighted the Department of Department of Rural and Community Development has decided to fund improvements to the Askeaton Slí na Sláinte route under the Outdoor Recreation Scheme.“Provisions are now being made in the council budgets to match funding totalling 20 per cent of the total cost as set out in the scheme,” he added.

A young man was stabbed to death in Oxford last Friday. A 23- year-old local man has since been arrested on suspicion of murder. Mosheon Cameron, who was married, was a resident of Littlemore. He was stabbed in the chest following an argument with another man outside the Blackbird Leys Community Centre at about 6.15 on Friday evening. Mr Cameron, 23, was immediately attended to by passers-by and paramedics but was pronounced dead at the John Radcliffe hospital soon afterwards. The wound had penetrated his heart. The suspected killer, who vanished from the scene soon after the attack, was described as being black, about six feet tall, and of a skinny build. He also had black hair that was cut short, sunken eyes and large lips. An Oxford resident was arrested on Wednesday. Police originally suspected that the crime was in some way drugsrelated, but this idea has now been dismissed. Detective Chief Inspector Dave Lewis, who is leading the enquiry, commented, “I believe this was a dispute between two individuals. I don’t think there is a drugs war, gang war or race war and I hope that this is of some reassurance to the people of Blackbird Leys.” Blackbird Leys is one of the most notoriously troubled estates in Oxford, but in recent years attempts have been made to improve the area and to encourage community pride.ARCHIVE: 1st week TT 2004
An Oxford University student is one of five Britons to be shortlisted to take part in the Mars One project.Ryan MacDonald, 21, from Derby, is a Masters student in physics at University College. He is also one of five people from the UK to have reached a shortlist of 100 to take part in this mission to the red planet.The project plans to send humans on a one way trip to Mars in order to set up a permanent human settlement on the planet by 2024, at an estimated cost of $6bn for the Dutch non-profit organisers.Ryan Macdonald told the Huffington Post, “I would like to go to Mars for a dream. Humanity’s greatest strength is our ability to dream of a better world, to imagine a future and to inspire a generation to bring it to life.”The Oxford physicist, who can recall 90 digits of the mathematical entity pi, also commented to The Guardian, “The most important thing to do in life is to leave a legacy. A lot of people do that by having a child, having a family. For me this would be my legacy.“Hundreds of years down the line, who is going to know who was the President of the United States? Everyone will remember who were the first four people who stepped onto Mars.”The four other Britons among the final 100 candidates for the mission include Durham University PhD astronomy student Hannah Earnshaw, University of Birmigham astrophysics PhD student Dr Maggie Lieu, Alison Rigby, 35, a science laboratory technician who is from Beckenham, Kent, and Clare Weedon, 27, a systems integration manager for Virgin Media.These five candidates form part of a total of 50 men and 50 women who have been shortlisted from all over the world; 39 from the Americas, 31 from Europe, 16 from Asia, seven from Africa and seven from Oceania.They were picked from a pool of 660 candidates who participated in online interviews with the mission’s chief medical officer Norbert Kraft, in which they were tested on their understanding of the risks involved, team spirit, and their motivation behind taking part in the expedition. Initially, over 200,000 people applied to take part in the controversial privately funded mission, which could be filmed for a reality television series. It’s not over yet for those candidates who were not selected either; they’ll have the chance to re-apply in a new application round opening in 2015.Other Oxford students were both excited and perplexed by the controversial project and the concept of a one-way trip.Alex Shickell, a fellow student at Univ, commented, “I think it’s a great idea and that it will help humanity explore the boundaries of our existence. Nonetheless, it’s a very daunting project and you’d have to be one very brave and perhaps slightly unhinged person.”Worcester fresher Charlotte Dowling also stressed the downsides of participating in Mars One. She said, “I think it’s an interesting idea; expansion into the stars is like something out of a sci-fi film. However, I’d question whether we have the right to settle there. It’s a little bit like colonisation. Just because it is not owned by anybody doesn’t mean we have the right to take it.”Exeter undergraduate Flora Hudson added, “In my opinion it could be a new imperialism. We don’t own space. What right do we have to settle there? More importantly, it seems to me like a suicide mission. That in itself is a very frightening prospect.”All of the shortlisted candidates will now be tested in groups to assess their responses to stressful situations in order to decide who will make the final list of 24 actually selected for the mission. Part of their training will then take place in a simulated Martian environment.Before the Mars Project can go ahead, the Dutch organisation will have to amass funds to send a robotic lander, as well as a communications satellite, to the planet.If this goes as planned, they will then have to send an ‘intelligent’ rover in order to scope out a landing spot for habitation modules and life support systems which will be sent up on rockets before the first humans arrive there.The project has not been without scepticism, as researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology suggested in a report last year that any manned mission to Mars would result in the crew dying after 68 days.
Ben Jaffe’s tuba has been a fixture in the Preservation Hall Jazz Band for some time, so New Orleans music fans around the world were shocked and saddened to hear that it was stolen following a concert at the New Orleans’ Music Box Village last month. Well get ready for some good news, folks, because we are excited to report that the iconic instrument is now back at Preservation Hall.Jaffe, who acts as the band’s creative director as well as its tuba/double bass player, revealed the news on Facebook earlier today. While the tuba apparently suffered some damage during its time away from home, Jaffe made it clear that its nothing they can’t fix with a little bit of a love.The instrument couldn’t have turned up at a better time, as the band is gearing up for three shows in Austin, TX as part of this week’s SXSW festivities. One of those gigs will take place this Thursday (March 15th) at Willie Nelson’s Luck Ranch, where Preservation Hall Jazz Band will join a bill that includes Nelson, Kurt Vile, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Hiss Golden Messenger, Josh Ritter, and many more.Of course, it should be noted that the instrument didn’t exactly turn up. No, it was reunited with its rightful owners thanks to an anonymous tip from someone who gave a damn. So kudos to you, anonymous tipster! We may never know your name, but your kind deed will not be forgotten.
This report was updated Sept. 27 at 3:02 p.m.A video circulating online shows University President Fr. John Jenkins failing to wear a mask or socially distance at the White House ceremony for law professor Amy Coney Barrett’s Supreme Court nomination Saturday.Marcus Cole, dean of the Law School, was seated next to Jenkins and appeared to be wearing a mask.Upon arrival at the White House, both Jenkins and Cole were directed to a room where individuals attending the ceremony were tested for COVID-19, vice president for public affairs and communications Paul Browne said. Every guest was tested by nasal swab prior to entering the ceremony.“Only when the test results returned negative were they and others in their group escorted into the Rose Garden for the ceremony,” Browne said in a statement.However, according to CNN, “two of Barrett’s colleagues at Notre Dame, who attended the Rose Garden event … said they were not tested for the virus by the White House.” The two guests also said they did not hear of any coronavirus testing precautions prior to the event, according to CNN reporting.Earlier in the academic year, Jenkins issued an apology for failing to follow recommended health and safety practices while taking phots with students.“While all of the scientific evidence indicates that the risk of transmission is far lower outdoors than indoors, I want to remind you (and myself!) that we should stay at least 6 feet apart,” Jenkins said in his prior apology.Tags: Amy Coney Barrett, COVID-19, John Jenkins
