See all posts by Peter Stephens Enter Your Email Address 3 simple steps to boost your chances of making a million from this market crash Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. The stock market’s recent crash could provide buying opportunities for long-term investors. A number of stocks are trading on low valuations, which suggests that they could offer recovery potential.Furthermore, many cheap stocks are high-quality businesses which have wide economic moats. They may, therefore, be able to overcome short-term challenges in their operating environments.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…Through adopting a long-term focus, you can capitalise on the stock market’s recent woes. Doing so could improve your chances of making a million.Undervalued stocksOne of the simplest, and yet most effective, ways of profiting from the stock market is to buy companies when they trade at low prices. Of course, there usually must be a clear reason for them to offer good value for money. At the present time, the risks facing the world economy from the spread of coronavirus have caused many businesses and industries to face uncertain futures and challenging trading conditions.While the current situation may last in the short run, it could be an opportunity to buy undervalued stocks for the long term. History shows that adopting this strategy would have enabled you to benefit from previous bear markets, and their subsequent recoveries. Although there is no guarantee that the stock market will recover from its recent downturn, a turnaround seems likely based on its past performance.Economic moatsAs well as buying undervalued stocks to improve your chances of making a million, purchasing companies which have wide economic moats could be a sound move. An economic moat is essentially a competitive advantage which a business has compared to its rivals. It could be lower costs, a unique product, or strong customer loyalty, for example.Those companies which have wide economic moats may be better able to cope with challenging trading conditions than their sector peers. They may even be able to capitalise on weak trading conditions to expand their market share and win new customers. Therefore, not only do companies with wide economic moats potentially have lower risks, they may yield higher returns in the long run.Long-term focusDuring market crashes it is easy to become concerned about the outlook for global equities. In the past, they have experienced deep and prolonged periods of disappointing performance that has reduced the values of investor portfolios.However, those periods have always given way to successful recoveries and new record highs. Therefore, if you are able to look beyond the short-term risks facing investors and instead focus on the recovery potential of the stock market, you may be able to more easily benefit from its turnaround prospects.With so many investors highlighting the risks facing the world economy, that task is by no means an easy one. However, by focusing on companies with wide economic moats, buying undervalued stocks and holding them for the long run, you can use the stock market’s crash to your advantage. It could help you to make a million in the coming years.

Coping After A Tragedy

first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Our hearts are heavy after the horrific shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando. It is impossible to make sense of acts of violence. However, there are a few important things we can do to help each other heal after a tragedy. The tips below can help you and your family cope during these difficult times.Talk About the TragedyEven if you were not directly affected, you may feel anxious about your own safety, angry, or depressed. It is important to share these feelings with someone you trust, like a close friend, family member, or therapist. You may be the person children confide in and are struggling with what to say. This tip sheet offers suggestions about how to answer questions children may have. If you don’t have someone to confide in, call the Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255). any time, day or night.Don’t Watch (Too Much) NewsThere is a fine line between staying up-to-date about events and becoming upset by news and images. The media, particularly TV news station, often show the scariest parts and repeat them over and over. It is important to limit news for young children who don’t understand when or where these events are taking place.Take Care of YourselfYou may not want to eat a healthy meal or go for a jog, but taking care of yourself will help your body deal with stress. Make it a priority to exercise each day, eat well, and plan to get a good night of sleep. You may be tempted to deal with your feelings by having a few beers or doing drugs, but positive coping skills like writing in a journal will help you heal in the long run.Help OthersWhen tragedy strikes, we often look for ways to help those in need. One way to do this is to help promote life-saving services like the Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) and the Disaster Distress Helpline (1-800-985-5990). You may also find comfort in taking part in a candle-light vigil or by volunteering in your community.Adapted from “In the Wake of Trauma” from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Commentary: The Beer Battle Continues

first_imgHome Commentary Commentary: The Beer Battle Continues By Gary Truitt – Mar 3, 2019 Commentary: The Beer Battle Continues SHARE Facebook Twitter By Gary TruittThere are some stories that make the news and disappear the next day. Then there are stories that just linger on and on and on — long after they have ceased to be new or interesting.  Remember April the giraffe?  April is a reticulated giraffe at the Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, New York. She gained worldwide fame after a live video of her in the late stages of pregnancy, along with the subsequent birth, were put on YouTube. The birth was watched live by nearly 1.2 million viewers. April first went live in February of 2017 and did not give birth until April 21.  The controversy over the use of corn sweetener in beer may be following in April’s footsteps.Sparked by a Bud Light commercial during the Super Bowl that made fun of competitors who used high fructose corn syrup, the battle by big beer for the hearts and drinking habits of corn growers is a story that will not die.  During his remarks to over 9,000 farmers at Commodity Classic, Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue drew cheers and a round of applause when he said he no longer drinks Bud Light.Perdue has been on a “don’t fear your food” campaign of late, slamming groups who claim our food supply and food safety protocols are not good. He has lumped the Budweiser attack on corn into this group.  The folks in St. Louis have responded by purchasing advertising schedules with farm media in Iowa, Illinois, Ohio, Missouri, and Nebraska (unfortunately, not in Indiana).Coors, who does use corn sweeteners, has been responding with a PR effort of its own.  In a very effective stealth move, a Coors spokesman showed up in the media room at Commodity Classic where representatives from almost every major farm broadcast, internet, and print publication had reporters. The media lined up to do interviews, and the Bud bashing continued — almost obscuring reports on trade and ethanol.  The brewers did miss a real opportunity, however, when they failed to provide free, cold beer in the press room.Not only has this this tempest in a tea pot stirred tempers of corn farmers, it has divided the beer industry. In the latest twist, MillerCoors pulled out of a potential partnership, at least temporarily, with Anheuser-Busch and other large breweries to promote the American beer industry. “This is an all-or-nothing proposition to us,” MillerCoors spokesman Adam Collins said this week. “As long as the industry leader is attacking an ingredient widely used across the beer industry, we’re not going to spend any time or money on an industry health campaign.” Big beer brewers are losing market share to small craft brewers, and corn growers have found themselves in the middle of the industry fight.There are many more important items that deserve news coverage. Yet, the battle over which beer is the most farmer-friendly continues to grab headlines.

What’s new at Amon G. Carter Stadium this season?

first_imgWorld Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution The new video board at Amon G. Carter Stadium. Photo courtesy of TCU Football Twitter. printThe new video board at Amon G. Carter Stadium. Photo courtesy of TCU Football Twitter. While construction won’t be complete this season, TCU football is promising Horned Frog fans major improvements in their gameday experience. From buying a cold one to cooling off under giant fans on the concourse and watching highlights on a new video board, the Carter has been upgraded for the 2019 season. The “giant video board,” in the north end zone will be 53 feet wider and 18 feet taller than the previous screen, TCU athletic director Jeremiah Donati said.The new Jumbotron will be 108 feet wide and 48 inches tall, just larger than the screen in Baylor’s McLane Stadium. MillerCoors beer will be available in aluminum cans from the time the gates open until the start of the fourth quarter. Hard seltzer will also be available. Happy-hour concession prices will offer some half-priced concessions and knock $2 off beer prices from when the gates open until 30 minutes before kickoff, Donati said. In a tweet, Donati said the discounted concessions will be “your favorite food items,” but did not offer any other specifics. He predicted that the new grab-and-go convenience stores in the football stadium will have “food options you are going to love.” But in an effort to increase gameday safety, fans who leave the game will need a new ticket to re-enter the stadium. “In benchmarking other institutions, and anticipating trends in large venues, the elimination of the in-and-out policy is the safe action to take,” a spokesperson for the athletic department said. Finally, the visiting bands are being moved to the northwest corner of the stadium, leaving better seats for the TCU faithful. The clear bag policy remains the same, Donati said. The complete $100 million expansion project will not be completed until the start of the 2020 season, Donati announced in a tweet on July 25. “While very disappointing, we wouldn’t be able to deliver a game day experience that our donors deserved,” Donati said. “We have spent the last few weeks looking at every option to access the space but ultimately we believed our donors deserved better. We are committed to delivering a world class experience for them.” The project, which was delayed by weather, was anticipated to debut for Oct. 26’s homecoming game against Texas. The upgrades will include 48 new boxes, two private clubs, more than 1,000 club seats, 22 luxury suites, meeting spaces for corporate events and a 100-foot outdoor balcony overlooking Frog Alley and the TCU campus. The Frogs are set to open their 2019 season on Aug. 31 against Arkansas Pine-Bluff, donning brand-new uniforms for the season.

Their employer confirmed the news at around 22:30 pm.Voloshin’s death brings the number of media workers killed in Ukraine in connection with their work since the start of the year to five ­– two reporters, one photo-journalist, one fixer and one media technician (Voloshin).——————–17.06.2014 – Fourth journalist killed in Ukraine, colleague missingRussian TV reporter Igor Kornelyuk was fatally injured today by a mortar shell outside Metallist, a village near the city of Luhansk in eastern Ukraine, while his soundman, Anton Voloshin, has been missing since the shelling.Employed by Russian public broadcaster VGTRK, Igor Kornelyuk (Игорь Корнелюк) was the fourth journalist to be killed in connection with his work in Ukraine since the start of the year.Kornelyuk’s cameraman, Viktor Denisov, said he, Kornelyuk and Anton Voloshin were accompanying a group of refugees and rebels when they came under mortar fire. Kornelyuk was taken to Luhansk state hospital where he died on the operating table. Voloshin’s fate is currently unknown.“The violence affecting journalists in Ukraine is reaching unprecedented levels,” said Johann Bihr, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “We again call on the belligerents to do whatever is necessary to protect journalists, as required by international law and UN Security Council Resolution 1738.“We offer our heartfelt condolences to Kornelyuk’s family and colleagues. A full and impartial investigation must be carried out to shed light on his death and the deaths of the other journalists killed in this conflict.”The three other media fatalities have been Italian photographer Andrea Rocchelli and his fixer, the well-known Russian human rights defender Andrei Mironov, who were killed by a mortar shell near Sloviansk, in the Donetsk region, on 24 May, and Ukrainian newspaper reporter Vyacheslav Veremiy, who was gunned down in Kiev on 19 February after covering the Maidan Square protests. More than 200 journalists have also been injured or attacked in Ukraine since the start of the year.Reporting has become extremely difficult for journalists since the clashes between the central authorities and the anti-Kiev rebels developed into an armed conflict in April.Dozens of journalists, bloggers and netizens have been taken hostage by anti-Kiev groups, while arrests of Russian journalists by the Ukrainian armed forces are becoming more frequent. The information war waged by the parties to the conflict has resulted in constant attacks on TV retransmission centres and harassment of local media in eastern Ukraine.

Leading Online Interior Design Service, Havenly Announces the Addition of Tina Sharkey to Its…

first_img Twitter Local News Pinterest WhatsApp Facebook WhatsApp By Digital AIM Web Support – March 4, 2021 DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 3, 2021– Havenly, the popular online interior design service that makes decorating simple, convenient, and affordable, is pleased to announce that celebrated entrepreneur Tina Sharkey has joined the company’s board of directors. The announcement comes on the heels of a record setting year for the brand, which saw an increased demand for its services as the importance of the home was elevated and technology’s integral role in the future of interior design was emphasized. The addition of Tina Sharkey to Havenly’s board comes as the Denver-based technology company enters its next chapter, seeking to continue further democratizing interior design while simultaneously expanding its footprint in the home category. “There has never been a more important time to help everybody transform their home into a space that they truly love,” notes Tina Sharkey. “I’ve always been passionate about design and self-expression, so I couldn’t be more thrilled to join the Board of Directors to support Lee and the rest of her leadership team as they execute and scale with speed and discipline to meet the fast-growing demand for their products and services. Havenly is building the next great home brand, curating a community of decor enthusiasts connecting them to talented interior designers who might otherwise be outside of their network. Havenly’s platform, talent and tools help turn their customer’s design dreams into a reality, and it’s an honor to have a hand in helping people unlock their home’s potential.” Tina Sharkey has driven innovation in media, commerce, and community for more than two decades, pioneering the development and adoption of pivotal consumer brands and platforms that bring data and technology together. As the co-founder and CEO of consumer products company Brandless, Tina assembled and led the team which developed the direct-to-consumer that was named one of Fast Company’s most innovative retailers two years in a row. Over her career, Sharkey has scaled Johnson & Johnson’s BabyCenter the world’s largest platform for new and expectant mothers; oversaw AOL’s defining transition to the open web; served as President of the renowned Sesame Street Digital Group; and co-founded iVillage, an online destination for women which became one of the most popular sites on the internet. “Havenly was created to address the tangible problem that often traditional interior design options feel too inaccessible for the everyday home,” says Havenly co-founder and CEO Lee Mayer. “Over the past several years, we’ve always sought to help people love where they live and unlock their space’s potential, a mission that feels especially critical in this moment as the pandemic has forever changed the meaning of home. So, after being introduced to Tina by another board member, we quickly realized that her incredible experience in growing and scaling disruptive consumer brands would be immensely valuable as Havenly prepares for our next phase, seeking to develop and deploy new technologies while continuing to deliver the personalized experience that our clients love.” Launched in 2014, Havenly offers professional design advice uniquely tailored to each client’s distinct space, style, and most importantly, real-life budget. With redesign packages starting at $79, clients are matched with their own personal interior designer based on their design aesthetic as pinpointed by Havenly’s style quiz. The brand offers two packages based on the client’s needs, a complete makeover or a room refresh, and their designers create a custom design based on that client’s unique style. Once they have a design they love, clients tap into Havenly’s concierge service to get instant access to hundreds of brands, like West Elm, CB2, Anthropologie, Serena & Lily, Surya and Pottery Barn.
