Forget Bitcoin! I’d buy FTSE 100 growth stocks in the market crash Despite a 7% increase in stock prices in the past week, the immediate outlook for FTSE 100 growth is worrying. In the year to date, the index has lost 24% of its valuation. However, for a long-term investor, I believe the index could still be rewarding.People are now looking at alternative investments, such as cryptocurrencies. Since the start of the year, the price of Bitcoin has increased by roughly 8%.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…I believe that investing in Bitcoin carries too much risk for personal investors. There is no underlying intrinsic value to the cryptocurrency, which makes estimating a future price almost impossible. Consequently, buying Bitcoin feels more like gambling than investing.Instead, I think now could be an ideal opportunity to buy stocks in quality businesses. The FTSE 100 has suffered multiple market crashes since its inception in 1984. Each time it has recovered its losses. I see no reason to believe now will be any different.Margin of safetyIn times like these, I like to read some of the things that Warren Buffett has previously said.A wide margin of safety is one of his investing principles, which Buffet learnt from his mentor, Benjamin Graham. For Buffett to buy, he wants the business to be trading at a price below its intrinsic value. The margin of safety allows for some breathing room should circumstances change or in case of any mistakes in analysing the stock.I would rather hunt out companies with a margin of safety than buy Bitcoin. With the market crash causing FTSE 100 stock prices to fall, now could be a great time to pick up cheap stocks with good growth prospects. FTSE 100 growth vs. incomeAt the moment, I am focussing on FTSE 100 companies for their growth and recovery prospects. Although I am still reviewing historic dividend yields as part of my intrinsic value calculations, in this market I do not consider future yields to always be a reliable metric.There are two reasons for this. Firstly, I believe it is prudent and reasonable for some companies to use cash that would otherwise pay dividends as capital to fund future growth. Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway is a good example of a company that has often used this tactic. Buffett prefers to reinvest the businesses profits and believes this provides more long-term value to shareholders.The second reason why I have put more emphasis on growth than income in the current market is that some companies – like Greggs – have suspended or cancelled previously announced dividend payments. With the coronavirus outbreak causing uncertainty, impacting revenue and profits, I do not believe that now is necessarily the time to focus on future yields.I would rather invest in companies that have a track record of producing serious amounts of profit with little capital outlay and almost no debt. As the market crash has caused a major slump on FTSE 100 share prices, it is now possible to find these types of companies trading at a bargain price.

Francois Trinh-Duc creates magical try for Julien Tomas vs Sale

first_imgFriday Oct 26, 2012 Francois Trinh-Duc creates magical try for Julien Tomas vs Sale Flyhalf Francois Trinh-Duc was instrumental in Montpellier’s 33-18 pool six Heineken Cup win over Sale last weekend. He scored their opening try and later set up this classic with a delicate chip and chase and then a brilliant inside pass. Sale suffered their seventh defeat in eight games, but are still in contention, tied with Montpellier in second place in pool six behind leaders Toulon, who they will face twice before January.“It got a bit messy and sloppy for us, and we must give credit to Francois Trinh Duc. He set up two great tries with chip kicks and finished one himself,” said Sale head coach Bryan Redpath.“Winning here is a difficult challenge and winning matches in Europe is hard. We did that last weekend against the Blues and we’ve come here and given a reasonable account of ourselves.”The Montpellier pack took charge in the second half, allowing the number ten to do what he does best as he sparked an incredible period of play that included this superb effort.The home side failed to secure a bonus point but on a personal note Trinh-Duc showed why he’ll no doubt play a major role in France’s upcoming matches against Australia, Argentina, and Samoa.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The commission consists of a summer house to be located in a rural area near Rapel Lake in a region of central Chile. The main characteristic that shapes the condition of the space is the extreme heat in summer times, a time that coincides with the greatest use of the house. In response to this requirement, the house responds with two basic strategies, it’s own shade and ventilation. The house is thought of as a volume based on its own shadow, that is, the volume itself is capable of generating its own shadow through eaves at the ends of the house. A warehouse type volume, which in turn, achieves an appropriate height to move a mass of hot air away and renew it with cross ventilation. It is added to the strategy, to incorporate timber cladding to the roof to shade and microventilate the roof sheet.With the interior itself receiving minimal direct sunlight a cool environment for its occupants can be maintained.Save this picture!Cortesía de 2dmSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!Cortesía de 2dmThere is an intent to remove the kitchen as the social, active hub of the space from retreat areas such as the bedrooms and master bedroom with the kitchen receiving its own wing. In this way the volume can expand in its length, giving rest.Save this picture!Cortesía de 2dmThe tour of the length of the house involves receiving the weather, a gentle breeze to cross the hall from the kitchen, and as it is to exit and re-enter, the house obliges then, to take air as a gift of summer time.Save this picture!Cortesía de 2dmProject gallerySee allShow lessJames Stewart Polshek Wins 2018 AIA Gold MedalArchitecture NewsCarmody Groarke’s Transparent Pavilion Will Allow for the Preservation of Historic H…Architecture News Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/884912/house-in-rapel-2dm Clipboard “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/884912/house-in-rapel-2dm Clipboard CopyAbout this office2dmOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesChilePublished on December 06, 2017Cite: “House in Rapel / 2dm” [Casa en Rapel / 2dm] 06 Dec 2017.

A second volum for the kitchen, dining room and living room. The third and fourth volums house the rooms. All of them are connected through transitional spaces as walkways. From the inside, you look towards an exterior (the garden) and at the same time an interior that is a small landscape (the patio).Save this picture!© José HeviaThe concept of garden responds to two principles. Small terraces are arranged at the foot of each opening, which follow the language of the house, the fence is understood as a natural element where small living areas surrounded by vegetation are found. Each corner of the house has a large tree that is related to each of the four volumes. It is based on the concept of pre-design. Save this picture!AxonometricSave this picture!First Floor PlanThis means that the project is running, already in initial stages, with the industrialists. They develop constructive system solutions based on pre-industrialization, pre-assembly and the use of easily recyclable materials, for easy assembly on site.

The micro-perforated parts allow to regulate the level of privacy and sunlight in warm wood interior spaces.

Welsh most responsive to charity appeals in Christmas run up, CAF research finds

first_imgWelsh most responsive to charity appeals in Christmas run up, CAF research finds Advertisement Tagged with: Charities Aid Foundation Research / statistics Wales / Cymru  197 total views,  2 views today Melanie May | 22 August 2019 | News The Welsh are more responsive to charity appeals in the Christmas run up than the rest of the UK, Charities Aid Foundation has found in its inaugural report into individual giving in Wales. CAF’s first ever Wales Giving study reveals that while November and December were the main months for giving across the UK as a whole in 2018, neither months recorded as high a level elsewhere as in Wales in November. 48% in the country claimed to have donated money to charity at this time, which coincides with a number of big appeals, compared to 39% for the UK as a whole.It also found that people in Wales were more likely than the UK as a whole to have participated in a charitable or social activity in the last four weeks (67% versus 64% for the UK as a whole).However, in terms of giving money, average donations were lower than the UK as a whole. CAF’s findings show that the median monthly amount given by a donor within Wales in 2018, either by donating or sponsoring in the last four weeks, was £15, while the mean amount given was £36. This compares with £20 and £45 respectively for the UK as a whole. CAF attributes this in part to lower levels of average salary in Wales compared to the UK as a whole.The number of people claiming Gift Aid tax credit was also lower than the UK average at 47% versus 51%.More key findings:Around nine in ten (89%) people in Wales have participated in at least one charitable or social action over the previous year: a similar proportion compared to the UK as a wholeThree fifths of people in Wales donated money to charity within the last yearA quarter give monthlyAn estimated £454 million was donated by those living in Wales in 2018 – 4.5% of the UK total of £10.1 billionThe top three causes in 2018 were medical research, animal welfare and children / young peopleCash is the most common way of giving money to charity, with just under three fifths (58%) doing so in 2018: slightly higher than the UK average of 53%Giving goods is the second most common form of engaging with charities. 57% claimed to have given goods in the last year, and 27% in the last four weeksSusan Pinkney, CAF’s head of research, said:“This first dedicated Wales Giving report gives us some terrific insights into the generosity of people in Wales and helps us better understand how and when they give.“This research tells us that the Welsh give big in response to the big charity appeals in November and December, but I’d say charities have to work to raise awareness of the incredible benefits of claiming Gift Aid on all of that generosity to make that money go even further.”  198 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis14 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis14 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Pork Producers and their Lender, Feeding Indiana’s Hungry

first_img Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Pork Producers and their Lender, Feeding Indiana’s Hungry Home Indiana Agriculture News Pork Producers and their Lender, Feeding Indiana’s Hungry Another-donation-for-Feeding-Indianas-HungryThe Indiana Pork Producers Ham Breakfast kicked off the State Fair activities on Friday. While promoting pork is a big part of what pork producers do at the fair, dealing with our state’s hunger issue is also a top priority for Hoosier pork producers and the businesses that support them.When Indiana Pork first launched the Million Meals program, one of Indiana’s leading ag lenders, First Farmers Bank and Trust, was quick to become a sponsor. On Friday, First Farmers donated another $10,000 to the program during the Ham Breakfast.  First Farmers spokesman Tade Powell told HAT that the need is tremendous and  partnering with Indiana Pork was a great way to help, “To think that 300,000 children in our state are without adequate nutrition was staggering to our organization.”Powell said, even when times are tough for farmers and their lenders, there is still a willingness to help hungry Hoosiers. ”Pork producers are tough-minded, resilient, and caring individuals,” he stated. “These people are driven by faith, family, and friendship, and that makes them want to fill empty stomachs.”  Since its inception, First Farmers Bank and Trust has donated over $100,000 to the program.

It is crucial that the judicial authorities distinguish between investigative reporting and participating in an illegal activity. Any confusion between the two poses a grave threat to the future of freedom of information in Lebanon.”Reporters Without Borders and Alkarama also condemn all use of military courts to try journalists and other civilians.In a press release on 6 December, the two organizations condemned the six-month jail sentence passed on Aysha in absentia on 25 November, when he was on a trip abroad.At a supreme court hearing yesterday, the presiding judge agreed to a request from Aysha’s lawyers to examine the case in detail. The next hearing has been set for 16 December. Receive email alertslast_img read more
