A second stock market crash could be relatively likely over the coming months. Past FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 bear markets have often experienced brief rebounds that are then followed by declines.Therefore, even though the stock market has regained much of its lost ground since March, a return to falling share prices cannot be ruled out.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…However, by following Warren Buffett’s advice, you can take advantage of the opportunities brought by a second market plunge. Doing so could boost your long-term portfolio returns.Preparing for a second market crashThe possibility of another severe market downturn is an ongoing risk facing all investors. However, at the present time, there are a number of risks that could make a decline for UK shares more likely than it otherwise would be.For example, a rise in coronavirus cases, or geopolitical risks in Europe and North America, could lead to a deterioration in investor sentiment that sends FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 stock prices lower.As such, following Buffett’s advice and holding some cash in a savings account could be a sound move. It may also allow you to take advantage of lower stock prices in the coming months, as well as provide peace of mind should your portfolio valuation come under pressure.Focusing on a competitive advantageIf a second market crash does occur, investing in the best UK shares you can find could be a sound move. Certainly, they may not be among the cheapest shares in the FTSE 100 or FTSE 250, but they may offer the best chance of taking part in a likely stock market recovery over the coming years.One area that Buffett has repeatedly focused on when investing is companies that have a competitive advantage over their peers. For example, they may have a unique product, a lower cost base, or enjoy stronger brand customer loyalty than their peers. This may enable them to survive a period of weaker sales, and also enjoy greater profit growth in a subsequent economic recovery.Value investingOf course, a market crash provides the opportunity for investors to access lower prices for UK shares across the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250. Although it’s difficult to buy any stock when it trades at its lowest level, following Buffett’s advice and paying a fair price for a high-quality business could lead to high returns in the long run.With the stock market having a solid track record of recovery following its various bear markets since inception, buying undervalued shares when their near-term prospects are challenging could prove to be a sound move.It may not lead to you becoming a billionaire, as per Warren Buffett, but it could significantly improve your long-term financial prospects through boosting your portfolio’s performance. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

By first removing the floor of the back barn section of the house, a three-level, structurally independent wood structure, was then inserted within the existing stone frame, distinguishing itself on the exterior facade as a large wooden volume. The design allows the historical large volume of the barn to remain legible despite the changes. The two-story living room extends up to the roof of the inserted structure, whose inner surfaces are clad with larch wood. Four additional rooms that were also built within the old barn constitute a two-level sculptural transition to the former living quarters.Save this picture!© Ralph FeinerViews are open through the entire house along its longitudinal axis, and a large sliding glass door to the balcony extends the view to the mountains of the Engadine. The typical local motif of deep window reveals in thick exterior walls has been adopted and exaggerated, signifying the alterations inside. With their sharp-edged detailing, these few large window openings stand out in contrast to the existing architecture.Save this picture!© Ralph FeinerReferencing historical barns in the vicinity, rough-sawn, untreated larch boards were chosen for the facade.

They will look to keep that streak alive this Wednesday at 8 p.m. against the University of Oklahoma (7-8, 1-2).What TCU brings:The Frogs are coming off two Big 12 wins over West Virginia (3-1) and Kansas State (3-2). Those two wins ended the two game losing streak the Frogs were on after facing previously ranked No. 2 Texas and previously ranked No. 15 Kansas.Junior middle blocker Regan McGuire and junior outside hitter Ashley Smith lead the Horned Frogs in blocks and kills, respectively.McGuire is second on the team with 116 kills in 55 sets played. McGuire leads the team in blocks with 84, averaging 1.53 blocks per set, good for seventh in the NCAA and first in the Big 12.Smith leads the Frogs with 164 kills and 197 points, averaging 3.58 points per set, good for tenth in the Big 12.TCU ranks first in the Big 12 with 2.76 blocks per set, but ranks significantly lower in the other major statistical categories as a team.What OU brings:The Sooners are looking to start a winning streak after beating Baylor University 3-1 in Norman. The Sooner victory ended a three-game losing streak.Redshirt junior outside hitter Madison Ward and junior middle blocker Micaela Spann lead the Sooners.Ward is second on the team with 153 kills, averaging 3.06 kills per set, good for ninth in the Big 12.Spann leads the team in blocks with 77, averaging 1.24 blocks per set, the second best in the Big 12. Spann is fourth on the team in kills with 138, but has a hitting percentage of .392 good for sixth in the Big 12.Oklahoma ranks fourth in the Big 12 in blocks and hitting percentage.The Bottom Line:TCU is 4-1 at home this season and was 13-3 last season. OU is 3-4 on the road this season. TCU is a much different team while playing at the University Recreation Center than when they play on the road.Given TCU’s blocking ability and how the team plays at home, the Frogs should be the ones who prevail in this match.Prediction: TCU, 3 to 1 Kevin Petershttps://www.tcu360.com/author/kevin-peters/last_img read more

Area bridges taking hard hits

first_img Retired Odessa Fire Rescue Capt. Dennis Wilhite pins an Engineer badge on his son, Brian Wilhite during a ceremony at OFR Central Station Tuesday afternoon, where five fire fighters were officially promoted to the Engineer rank. Firefighters have to work for at least 5 years before they can apply and test to become Engineers. The four other new Engineers are Austin Yocham, Cesar Benavides, Nathan Tells, and Jay Sudell. Facebook Home Local News Area bridges taking hard hits Local News Area bridges taking hard hits Facebook Previous articleGEEK: WIFI performance within your controlNext articleTEXAS VIEW: FEMA must build trailer inventory for disaster relief admin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Pinterest WhatsApp Texas Department of TransportationA number of bridge strikes have caused closures on highways around Midland and Odessa the past few weeks, creating additional traffic and conflict points.Texas Department of Transportation Spokesman Gene Powell said TxDOT has seen 13 bridge strikes since Nov. 1, and around 100 bridge strikes in total in the past six years.The most recent of these have been two bridge closures east of Midland: The Business Interstate 20 west interchange bridge over I-20 at mile markers 154 and 155 on the west side of Stanton and the bridge carrying County Road 1150 across I-20 east of Midland suffered severe damage from oversized loads. They also have repairs being done at I-20 and Loop 250 due to a bridge strike two years ago.Passing lanes have also been closed at Interstate 20 and Crane Avenue while construction of a crossover is completed due to bridge strikes from two years ago, and Powell said they are also adding a bridge rail upgrade at I-20 and East Loop 338, with various ramp and lane closures over the next 10 weeks as bridge rails are updated.Powell said TxDOT is seeing three things behind the cause for these bridge strikes: People who have oversized loads who are not bothering to get permits, people who get permits for their loads but ignore the route they are told to go and those who have their loads not restrained properly, such as a track hoe that is not tied down, causing the arm to extend.Powell said the oil industry picking up over the last few years may also have a hand in the uptick in bridge strikes.“Any time you have more traffic, you have more accidents,” Powell said. “The frustrating part is all this is preventable.”Powell said every bridge is marked clearly with how tall it is, and all of the bridges in the area are well over 14 feet. He said if drivers would just follow the rules, most of the problems would be eliminated.“If you go through the process of getting that permit, that’ll eliminate 95 percent of the problem,” Powell said. “If you just do what you’re supposed to do.”Powell said it would take weeks to get estimates on the bridge strikes in Stanton and Midland, but that the strike in Stanton could reach seven figures pretty easily. The costs of the repair may not be astronomical, he added, but the costs of the traffic control could create more spending.The work on Crane Avenue is costing around $3.5 million to repair two bridges, Powell said, and a little more than $2 million of that is traffic control — they have to build a traffic barrier and a median.“Part of the problem at Crane Avenue is there is no service road,” Powell said. “So we have to build a crossover across the median. It’s the same kind of thing over at Loop 250.”Powell said there’s no real way to predict these kinds of hits, so TxDOT can’t plan for them. They have a small contingency fund, but Powell said it’s not enough for the number of strikes they have seen. Sometimes they have to keep bridges closed while they find funding for repairs, Powell said, and they always try to pursue reimbursement if they can, but it usually still has to come out of TxDOT’s budget initially to get the repairs done while they attempt to recoup the costs.Like in the case of the bridge hits in Stanton, Powell said they found the person responsible and would attempt to pursue reimbursement for the damage.Powell said that for major repairs, they would often get money from the bridge division of TxDOT in Austin, and for minor repairs they have contracts with several repair companies.“The reality is that sometimes, good repair projects can sit for more than a year while we pursue funding, because we don’t want to delay other projects,” Powell said.Powell said these closures can cause backups with work to be done on road issues such as potholes.“We have had a lane closure on Loop 250 for two years,” Powell said. “We don’t recoup the frustration and back-ups, there’s no way to quantify that stuff. There are costs involved we can’t recoup.”What would really help the situation are efforts to improve safety on the road from industry leaders, Powell said. The Permian Roads Safety Coalition is one such group, formed by leaders in the oil and gas industries, who are attempting to plan better transportation safety practices to lower the leading cause of death in their industry: fatal transportation crashes.“Commercial vehicle drivers and commercial vehicle companies have to put this as a priority where we don’t have these kinds of hits,” Powell said. “Drivers have to make it personal as well.” 2021 SCHOOL HONORS: Permian High School center_img WhatsApp Hawaiian Roll Ham SlidersUpside Down Blueberry Pie CheesecakeSummer Spaghetti SaladPowered By 10 Sec Mama’s Deviled Eggs NextStay Pinterest ECISD undergoing ‘equity audit’ OC employee of the year always learning Twitter Twitter By admin – January 21, 2018 last_img read more

Media Could Be Proactive But Has To Be Sensitive, Sensationalism Is Anathema To Responsible Journalism: Calcutta High Court

first_imgNews UpdatesMedia Could Be Proactive But Has To Be Sensitive, Sensationalism Is Anathema To Responsible Journalism: Calcutta High Court Sparsh Upadhyay28 April 2021 12:35 AMShare This – xImage Courtesy: National HeraldDealing with a plea seeking strict enforcement of Section126(1)(b) of the Representation of the People Act, 1951, the Calcutta High Court on Tuesday (April 27) remarked, “Sensationalism is anathema to responsible and responsive journalism.” The Bench of Chief Justice Thottathil B Radhakrishnan and Justice Arijit Banerjee further remarked, “Print and audio-visual media could be proactive but has to be sensitive. This is what is meant in the truest sense by the oft mentioned term fourth estate.” Importantly, Section 126(1)(b) of the Representation of the People Act, 1951 reads thus: “126(1)(b). No person shall display to the public any election matter by means of cinematograph television or other similar apparatus in any polling area during the period of forty-eight hours ending with the hour fixed for the conclusion of the poll for any election in that polling area.” The petitioner submitted his apprehension that media houses and publishing houses could violate the provision of Section 126(1)(b) of the R. P. Act, 1951. In response to this, Counsel representing the Election Commission of India submitted that since the last phase of the election was scheduled to be held on 29th April 2021, canvassing and rallying had been stopped by the Election Commission of India. Hence, it was argued that the petitioner had no reason to apprehend that there would be any breach of the provision of law. Consequently, the Court directed that the authorities to strictly enforce the aforesaid provision of law. “We are sure that if there is violation of that provision, it is for the competent authorities concerned to ensure that strict obedience to that provision of law is obtained,” the Court added. The matter has now been posted for further hearing on May 3.Click Here To Download OrderRead OrderTagsElection Commission West Bengal Polls West Bengal State Assembly Elections 2021 #Calcutta High Court Media Reporting Responsible Journalism Chief Justice Thottathil B Radhakrishnan Justice Arijit Banerjee Section126(1)(b) of the Representation of the People Act Representation of People Act 1951 Next Storylast_img read more

Doherty urged to use ‘influence in North’ on Covid travel laws

City councilwoman brings words of ‘encouragement’

first_imgLatest Stories Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Skip Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Print Article Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Dejerilyn King Henderson may not ever be governor of Alabama but she gave notice Friday that it won’t be because she didn’t try.Henderson, a newly elected member of the Troy City Council, was the featured speaker at the Charles Henderson High School Black History Program.Henderson told her audience that she consistently sought elected positions since becoming politically involved in the mid-1980s. By Jaine Treadwell Published 11:00 pm Friday, February 15, 2013 “I knew, too, that black people didn’t have a snowball chance of being elected to the Troy City Commission.”Henderson sought the support of the United States Department of Justice in making a change in the city government that would give African Americans a voice. Her gallant legal actions helped change the city’s form of government to a mayor-council form with five single-member districts. The mayor-council form of government opened the doors for black representation on the Troy City Council.Henderson said that she stood before the CHHS student body and faculty with great pride in being a voice in city government.“My mother did not get to see me sworn in as a member of the city council. She is not here in body today but she is here in spirit,” Henderson said. “And, she is saying, ‘Lord, look at her now. Who would have thought it?’” Email the author “It was a long time coming but I believe God put me on His earth to serve His people as an elected official,” she said.Henderson stepped forward as a leader of political change in 1982 when she ran for a seat on the Troy City Commission, which had three members. The office of mayor rotated among them.“I knew that I could not be elected because the commissions ran at-large, which means that everybody got to vote,” Henderson said.

A dream and hard work brought her from the housing projects to a position on the city council.“And, if you work hard enough and set your goals high enough, you can accomplish much,” she told the students. “I am here today to encourage you and tell you not to have a slave mentality.Henderson said getting caught up with peer pressure, bullying, stereotypes and other things of the world is having a slave mentality.“A slave mentality will hook you and weigh you down. Don’t get caught up in that,” she said. “Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. had a dream to make the world a better place. Have a dream. Break the slave mentality. Be confident of your character. Work hard. Aim high and you can accomplish your goals.”CHHS Principal Dr. Boyd English also challenged the students.He spoke of two great leaders, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and President Abraham Lincoln, both leaders in Civil Rights.“They stood with boldness and they stood up for what was right,” English said.“It is not the color of your skin that matters.

It has to be viewed. “It’s unique, one-of-a-kind,” she said. “Lisa is an incredible artist but before she was a Western artist, she was a runway model. But she soon realized that she is a cowgirl at heart and more comfortable in the saddle than on a runway. Stokes’ art celebrates the Western heritage that is her passion.In the JCA lower gallery, Virginia Fergus’ “Journey through Daydreams” exhibition is something that is uniquely hers.Painting has always been a natural experience Fergus. Growing up, she spent many summer days with her grandmother in the sleepy Alabama town of Canoe. Her grandmother gave Fergus her first paint set and lessons.“Virginia’s grandmother was a painter and must have recognized her talent at early age,” White said. In her early 20s, Fergus decided watercolor was the medium for her, White said. She took weekly lessons for three years and then just began painting on her own. Over the years, her process has changed. It is a more a nontraditional approach and is something uniquely, Virginia Fergus.The artist, who learned to paint at her grandmother’s home in Canoe has done hundreds of “one woman shows” in the sense that she does everything from framing to meeting her patrons and selling her art.For Lisa K.
