How I’d invest £100k in this FTSE 100 stock market crash to make a million

Investing £100k in FTSE 100 shares today may seem a risky way to try to make a million. After all, the stock market crash may not yet be over. High levels of volatility could lead to paper losses in the short run, which may be severe in some cases.However, valuations across the FTSE 100 suggest that now could be the right time to buy stocks. Their recovery prospects and track records of enjoying bull markets after bear markets are proven. That may mean investing £100k, or any other amount, in high-quality businesses could increase your chances of generating a seven-figure portfolio 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…Fair valuationsThe FTSE 100’s decline means that the index is trading at the same level as it did over 20 years ago. As such, many of its members are trading on valuations not seen since the last bear market in 2009. In some cases, FTSE 100 shares are even cheaper than they were back then.However, the key focus for investors should be on paying a fair price for a business instead of a low price. In other words, the economic outlook over the coming months could be very challenging. Some stocks may not survive, or may need government help to do so. This means choosing stocks that have financial strength is key. Think low debt levels and solid free cash flow that can help them overcome short-term challenges.Those companies that are more likely to survive the upcoming economic difficulties may not be the cheapest in the FTSE 100. But they could be the best value. Their current prices may reflect a risky outlook that they are ultimately likely to overcome. Focusing your capital on them may mean you get a relatively attractive risk/reward ratio compared to buying ultra-cheap-but-high-risk stocks.Economic moatsOne aspect of businesses that investors may wish to consider when purchasing stocks is their economic moats. For example, they may have a high degree of customer loyalty, unique products or lower costs than their peers. A wide economic moat may not necessarily protect a business from economic difficulties in the short run. But it may enable them to fully capitalise on the likely economic recovery in the coming years.Governments and central banks are pumping billions into the economy, and potentially going further in this regard in the coming months. So many FTSE 100 stocks could offer recovery potential. After the financial crisis, many large-cap shares went on to post high returns. Among those businesses most likely to partake in a recovery could be those with competitive advantages. As such, they may be the most attractive investing opportunities at the present time.Making a millionClearly, investing £100k, or any other amount, in FTSE 100 shares today is unlikely to yield a high return in the short run due to the risks facing the economy.However, the FTSE 100’s total returns since inception (around 8% per annum) mean that even if the index performs as it has done in the past, it would take around 30 years to make a million from a £100k investment. Through buying high-quality businesses with wide economic moats at fair prices, though, you could reduce the amount of time it takes to make a million.

Journalism in Valle del Cauca – terror, economic pressure and self-censorship

first_img April 27, 2021 Find out more May 7, 2015 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalism in Valle del Cauca – terror, economic pressure and self-censorship Related documents informacio_n_entre_el_terror_y_el_centavo_ok-3.pdfPDF – 966.32 KB Help by sharing this information October 21, 2020 Find out more ColombiaAmericas RSF and FECOLPER have registered two murders of journalists and one attempted murder in Colombia since the start of the year, confirming the country’s status as one of the most dangerous in the western hemisphere for media personnel.After Edgar Quintero, a journalist with local Radio Luna, was murdered in Palmira, a city in Valle del Cauca, on 2 March, the two NGOs decided to carry out a joint visit to the department to document the challenges facing journalists there.They visited the cities of Buenaventura and Palmira from 13 to 15 March, meeting local government officials, more than 50 journalists, representatives of two journalists’ organizations and civil society representatives.“There is no getting away from it – journalists in Valle del Cauca face brutal violence by paramilitary and guerrilla groups as well as stifling economic pressure,” said Claire San Filippo, the head of RSF’s Americas desk.“Some are reduced to censoring themselves for fear of reprisals, while others are forced to move to a different location. Without independent, impartial and thorough investigations into the threats and violence against them, and without an effective and coordinated policy of protection, Colombian journalists will continue to work in fear.”A total of 29 journalists have been killed in Valle del Cauca since 1980, including 12 in Cali (the departmental capital), five in Cartago and four in Buenaventura.“We censor ourselves because they kill or ‘make you disappear’,” said Adriana Minota of Radio Voz del Pacífico. “Even if there are now fewer murders, you hear of more and more people going missing. The criminals know when you are going to cover certain stories. Some control you by means of fear. When you know what happened to other threatened journalists, you obviously worry.”As well as the violence, freedom of information is significantly limited by the conditions placed on state advertising. The lack of regulation and fairness in its distribution continues to be a problem. The authorities continue to use the allocation of advertising as lever for favouring or punishing media according to their editorial policies.“People in high places call us to tell us what they liked and didn’t like,” said Adriana Restrepo Valencia, a journalist with online TV station Palmitveo Colombia. “If you’re a journalist, you cannot work without being subjected to pressure in Palmira.” ColombiaAmericas Colombia is ranked 128th out of 180 countries in the press freedom index that Reporters Without Borders released in February. 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies RSF_en Organisation RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin Americacenter_img Terrorized and pressured economically, journalists censor themselves in the southwestern department of Valle del Cauca, according to a joint report on freedom of information in this region that Reporters Without Borders (RSF) and the Colombian Federation of Journalists (FECOLPER) released today.

Government urged to modify proposed new press law

first_img News Morocco / Western SaharaMiddle East – North Africa July 12, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Government urged to modify proposed new press law April 15, 2021 Find out more News June 8, 2021 Find out more Hunger strike is last resort for some imprisoned Moroccan journalists April 28, 2021 Find out more News Morocco / Western SaharaMiddle East – North Africa RSF joins Middle East and North Africa coalition to combat digital surveillance center_img Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information to go further RSF_en Organisation News Reporters Without Borders wrote today to Prime Minister Driss Jettou voicing concern that a proposed overhaul of the press law currently being discussed by the government does not decriminalize press offences. The organisation called for significant changes in the current draft, which appears not to be the final version that will be submitted to parliament.“Your government is portraying the proposed new press law as an ‘important and historic’ advance in the reinforcement of free speech and press freedom in Morocco,” the letter said. “We are aware of all the work that has been put into its drafting, which has included bringing journalists into the discussions. We are also aware of your personal commitment to the proposed new law. Nonetheless, the draft we have right now, if adopted, would not be able to provide the necessary guarantees for the protection of journalists in Morocco.“The most disturbing aspect of the draft is the decision to retain articles providing for prison sentences for press offences. Most of the legal provisions used to convict journalists in recent years have been kept. Among the most common offences one finds ‘insulting the king’ and ‘insulting the sacredness of institutions.’ They are punishable by one to five years in prison. These provisions are particularly restrictive since, as well as imprisonment, they offer judges the possibility of suspending a publication or closing it down for good.“Even more serious, in our view, is the fact that the elimination of a significant number of articles in the existing law that provide for prison sentences – something which your government has made much of in its press campaign – is invalidated by article 100 (chapter V, paragraph 5), which reintroduces prison sentences in all cases for repeat offenders. We reject this provision all the more firmly as it would encourage journalists with one conviction to censor themselves for fear of being imprisoned on a subsequent conviction.“Furthermore, many provisions are drafted so vaguely they can be interpreted in many different ways. And certain prohibitions are too general and too automatic. This is the case with article 85, which almost systematically bans coverage of anything involving personal privacy. We are also worried by the lack of real guarantees for the protection of the confidentiality of journalists’ sources. Article 13 (chapter III, section 1) is particularly problematic because it eliminates this guarantee in situations where it is most useful, namely before a court.“Finally, we are worried about the some of the prerogatives of the future National Press Council (CNP) and the way its members are to be chosen. This council is to have very significant disciplinary powers and, as things stand, it could turn into a new tool for censoring journalists. It would, for example, be empowered to strip someone of the right to work as a journalist. This prerogative could have very dangerous consequences and could make journalists even more vulnerable than they are today.”In all, Reporters Without Borders has established that at least 27 articles in the proposed new press law violate international standards, especially as regards decriminalization of press offences.Reporters Without Borders called for the withdrawal of the press law currently in force immediately after its adoption in 2002. It is a very harsh law despite a number of positive aspects (it reduced the prison sentences and fines for press offences, it reduced the red tape involved in launching a new newspaper, and it forced the authorities to give a reason for seizing issues of newspapers).But it retained jail terms for insulting the king, princes or princesses, although it stipulated that those convicted should be imprisoned for three to five years, compared with five to 20 years under the previous law. And it retained the government’s right to ban Moroccan or foreign newspapers if they “undermine Islam, the monarchy, national territorial integrity or public order.”In the five years since it was adopted, this law has enabled the courts to convict journalists at least 13 times, without counting those journalists who were tried under anti-terrorism legislation.

Summer food safety

first_imgSummer brings warm, sunny days and time outdoors, including grilling and eating outside. But just as we like the warmth and freedom of partying in the yard, so do bacteria that could make our food unsafe. They could turn a perfectly planned holiday cookout into a health concern, and even nightmare for some.Food safety is as important when grilling and serving food outdoors as it is in the kitchen. Bacteria don’t care about ruining the summer fun if they get access to the food and temperatures they like to grow on.Barbecuing is popular for the Fourth of July and throughout the summer months. Grilling safely requires some pointers to keep the cook and the food safe. There are some first-things-first tips to remember regardless of how picnics and meals are being prepared.Remember cleanliness Wash your hands before you touch food or utensils and right after you handle raw meat, poultry, seafood or eggs. For cooking out, if your grilling location has no running water or soap, take disposable hand wipes and hand sanitizer. You may want to use disposable gloves when handling raw items. Change into a new pair of gloves between handling raw products and food that is ready to eat.Always keep the area where you prepare food clean and use clean utensils. If you’re working outside, take plenty of waxed paper, aluminum foil or disposable plates to use as clean preparation surfaces and have plenty of disposable utensils on hand. In the kitchen, keep counters, dishes and utensils clean by washing them with soap and hot water before rinsing. Counters should be sanitized after washing and rinsing if they were in contact with raw meat, poultry, seafood or eggs on them.Keep foods separated Keep raw foods and their juices and contaminated surfaces, dishes or utensils from coming into contact with foods that are already cooked or that can be eaten raw, like cleaned fruits and vegetables. Use a clean plate when removing cooked meats from the grill so that raw meat juices do not re-contaminate the cooked food. “Putting safely cooked meat or poultry back onto plates with raw juices just puts harmful bacteria back onto the cooked foods,” said Elizabeth Andress, University of Georgia Cooperative Extension food safety specialist and professor of foods and nutrition with the UGA College of Family and Consumer Sciences.Be sure foods that are put into coolers are well wrapped to avoid cross-contamination. It is best to use separate coolers for ready-to-eat foods and salads and for raw meats, poultry or seafood that will be cooked before eating on site.Cook meat, poultry, seafood and eggs thoroughlyThere are minimum safe internal temperatures that should be checked with a thermometer before calling foods done. Meat or poultry that’s been cooked on the grill can brown quickly on the outside. But is it really done? Take the guesswork out of grilling by using a food thermometer.When you check thin foods, like patties or chicken pieces, insert the stem of the thermometer through the side of the food to get an accurate reading. Wait at least 15 seconds to take the reading. Ground beef should reach at least 160 degrees Fahrenheit in the center to be safe. Poultry, whether it’s whole or ground, should reach at least 165 F. Beef, veal, lamb or pork (steaks, roasts or chops) should reach at least 145 F and be allowed to rest for three minutes before slicing or serving.Keeping food cold If outside, use coolers with plenty of ice or cold packs for perishable food. If inside, leave foods in the refrigerator until time to cook or serve them.When thawing frozen foods, use methods that do not allow the food’s surface to warm up while the food is still frozen inside.There are three safe methods for thawing foods. Thaw food ahead of time in the refrigerator that is set at 40 F or colder. Frozen foods can also be thawed in cold water, but that water should be cold and changed every 30 minutes to fresh cold water. If you are going to cook your food completely immediately after thawing it, you can also thaw in the microwave. Just be sure to use some method of final cooking right after microwave thawing.If you plan to marinate meat or poultry before grilling, marinate it in the refrigerator, not on your kitchen counter. And do not reuse that marinade on the cooked food unless you bring it to a full boil first and boil for one full minute to kill harmful bacteria. If you know you want to do this, it would be safest to make enough marinade to use some to marinate raw meat or poultry and save an additional, fresh portion of marinade to use later for flavoring the cooked meat.To hold cooked food until meal time and during serving, keep hot foods at or above 140 F and cold foods at 40 F or lower. Use warming trays and coolers with ice to control the temperature of your foods and keep them out of the temperature danger zone. Make sure foods do not stay in the temperature danger zone — less than 140 F for hot foods and more than 40 F for cold foods — for more than two hours total. If it is 90 F or higher, limit the time to one hour or less.Finally, if foods have been left outside on picnic tables with lots of chances for contamination to occur during your meal, it’s best to throw leftovers away. Plan well so you don’t have leftovers or, if you do, be sure to handle them safely.Follow personal safety while grillingBe careful lighting the fire. Never use gasoline, fuel oil or kerosene. Avoid loose, flowing shirts, sleeves and skirts. Roll up long shirt sleeves and tuck shirt bottoms in. Long hair should be pulled back with a band or tucked securely up into a cap. Use long-handled utensils so your arms and hands are not too close to the fire. Keep cookware handles turned to one side away from the heat. Keep a water spray bottle or hose close by. Finally, be sure the fire is completely out before you leave it and clean the grill after use so that dirt and bacteria do not stick to it.Celebrate the summer holidays and stay safe while you grill and chill!

Stress Engineering Riser and Wellhead Monitoring for Noble Tom Madden Drillship

first_imgStress Engineering Services (SES) has delivered a real-time drilling riser and wellhead monitoring system (RFMS), in conjunction with its condition based maintenance (CBM) process for Noble Corporation’s ultra-deepwater drillship Noble Tom Madden.The RFMS provides dynamic subsea measurements with a high degree of reliability for the drilling riser and wellhead systems. By precisely recording the motion of the drilling riser, wellhead and casing system at discrete points in a time synchronous manner, fatigue damage of these components are determined and actionable information on the health of the drilling riser, wellhead and casing system can be delivered to the rig crew.SES’s CBM process supports structural integrity evaluation and maintenance assessments of drilling risers to assess the condition of drilling riser joints, determine when important components will need service or replacement and assess the remaining life of the component. This process is function-based on a tailored period, rather than time-based, improving performance economics for operators throughout the industry. For this project, a life cycle CBM system will be deployed and performed on the MODU.Chuck Miller, vice president, Stress Engineering Services, said, “Our ABS-qualified CBM process will remove uncertainties surrounding damage of the riser joints. We are proud that our CBM process and RFMS technology arms drilling engineers with innovative automation, digitalization and data analysis techniques and empowers them to make more informed decisions.”Orlan Lyle, Director-Worldwide Subsea & Maintenance, Noble Drilling Services said, “Using SES’s CBM process together with their RFMS technology will allow us to make data driven decisions concerning the condition of our assets. The associated insight helps us focus on safety, identify measurable risks, manage our economics with actionable data and ultimately provides us with better information on the health of our assets.”last_img read more

If you plan on winning Buffett’s 1 Billion Dollars, you better pay attention to NCAA “Champion Week”!

first_imgLadies and gentleman of the Barber Shop Sports Nation it is time to talk about my favorite time of year, March Madness but before the brackets are set there is a key week for most teams around the country, Championship week. Because this year’s tournament is up for grabs there are plenty of capable programs out there waiting to become the next team to cut down the nets as the 2014 NCAA champion.Championship week is where just about every conference holds its tournament and to the winner goes an automatic bid into the NCAA field. Some have already started and others will start next week, so all week long there will be nothing but college basketball until selection Sunday.Brian SchlumerichConference tournaments are a great way to get a preview of teams that could make the next Cinderella run in the bracket. Watching these games you get a chance to see these young men putting it all out on the line because this is their only chance to get to the big dance. Teams that struggled through the year get a chance to go on a magical run and represent their conferences. However small they may be for most college players this will be the apex of their basketball careers.Conferences most people don’t know like: Atlantic Sun, Sunbelt, Summit, Horizon and many, many more.Teams in these small conferences are trying to be this year’s Florida Gulf Coast. Championship week can be some of the most exciting basketball you will watch all season with classic rivals squaring off and then the winner gets the bid and the loser’s season is over.Championship week is also the last week for teams on the bubble to get a win or two more to try and ensure there spot in the dance. Every year we hear about the bubble teams trying to make an impression on the committee and nothing says that you belong like a great run in your conference tournament. Some bubble teams that need to make statements are Florida State, Arkansas, Baylor, California, Minnesota and St. John’s just to name a few.Everyone should know by now that the only guarantees are the conference tournament winners and their automatic bids. Year after year you hear about teams that were snubbed from the dance but at the end of the day the blame should fall more on the teams than the committee. No matter the selections you cannot make everyone happy.The other teams that have already locked in their place in the dance will be looking to improve their seed. Matchups are crucial when it comes to brackets and teams. Teams with the higher seeds will get more favorable matchups but that doesn’t always equal a guarantee. If the NCAA tourney has taught us anything it’s that seeds don’t matter it’s the game you play on that day. We have seen every lower seed get an upset win with the exception of a 16 seed.Now I’m not saying that it’s going to happen this year but it could be this year that a 16 seed finally beats a #1 seed.No team has shown they are head and shoulders above the rest of the competition and every team is coming in with questions marks even all the projected number 1 seeds. Florida has had a great year but they haven’t had the toughest of schedules and had a tough game versus Florida Gulf Coast. Wichita St has had an incredible run but they play in a smaller conference and some wonder if they have another final four run in them. Kansas has been up and down all year and Arizona lost one of their key players Brandon Ashley and also lost some games in a very weak PAC 12.Now on a personal note there is small mid-conference team that I will be rooting for especially hard for from the Mid-American Conference and that team is the University of Buffalo. They are seeking their first bid ever in the NCAA Tourney.The Buffalo Bulls are led by senior forward Javon McCrea a player from my high school alum. I was fortunate to be able to watch him a couple times while he played at Newark, a small town in upstate New York between the cities of Rochester and Syracuse. While there he dominated the completion and led them to a state final his senior year where they lost to James-DeWitt a team led by one of the top centers in the nation Dajuan Coleman who is currently at Syracuse (out this year due to a knee injury).He is one of the most skilled big men in the country and the only reason he is not on most NBA scouts radar is because of his size 6-7. Despite being an undersized power-forward he has averaged 18.4 points, 9.9 rebounds and 2.2 blocks per game this season. So a special shout out to Javon and the Buffalo Bulls!I know that everyone loves the first few days of the NCAA tournament but Championship week is just as exciting. You get to watch some of the best ballers in the country and teams fighting for their tournament life. From the pure elation and jubilation to the heart ache it is one of the most exciting times in all of sports. So sit back and enjoy the week, watch and take notes about the teams you think will be this year’s bracket busters.Brian Schlumerich is an avid sports fan turned radio broadcaster and blogger.
