Why savvy investors could make their fortunes from this market correction

Enter Your Email Address “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I reckon the fear of Covid-19 is worse than the actual effects of the coronavirus. Why, for example, are people stripping bare supermarket shelves of toilet rolls?It’s hard for me to imagine the virus specifically targeting the staff who labour daily to produce the lovely soft tissue we’re all so fond of. So I don’t reckon toilet paper factories will grind to a complete halt.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…But I can’t blame folks for feeling nervous. The outbreak is a crisis that looks set to deal out real human and economic consequences. But I reckon savvy investors can use the opportunities delivered by the setback in the financial markets. They should be able to make real and enduring fortunes. And I think like that because it has always happened before with previous stock market falls.What Buffett did last timeIn one example, I wrote recently of how the Dow Jones Industrial Average had risen by around 300% in the years following Warren Buffett’s call to invest in stocks in October 2008. Back then, the markets were plunging because of the credit crunch and financial crisis.Buffett followed his own advice and was investing in good-quality shares. As it happened, the DOW slipped around 25% lower immediately after the New York Times published his bullish article. But Buffett came out on top in the years that followed.And conditions are strikingly similar in the markets today compared with what they were in 2008. The indices may not yet have fallen as far as back then, but investor sentiment is in shreds and collective fear is in the air, just the same.To the savvy investor, such conditions could present a compelling opportunity of the sort that doesn’t come around very often. And one simple way to take advantage is to begin a programme of drip-feeding money into the markets straight away.Tracking and stock pickingThe Buffett example above demonstrates that we can do well by simply investing in the general stock market. I’d do that by targeting low-cost index tracker funds. And I wouldn’t try to be too clever by seeking out specialist niches in the market or by trying to guess what the next hot emerging market might be.Indeed, my favourite index tracker funds would simply be those that follow the FTSE 100 index, the FTSE 250 index and America’s S&P 500. I reckon all three vehicles will be fit for riding a future recovery in the markets and further growth after that.But realistically, to make a fortune from the stock market because of the current setback as this article’s headline suggests is possible, I think you’ve got to pick a few stocks representing individual companies.So, in the middle of all the current market madness, now’s the time to go to work. And I’d begin by researching shares and building a watch list. Then, when the opportunities seem ripe, I’d hold my nose and press the ‘buy’ button with a view to holding for the long term.

Immeuble Verdeaux is a housing building located on a very specific plot, whose triangular shape allowed very few possibilities to be inhabited. By pushing the vertical circulation out of the envelope of the building, the surface is maximized on each floor. The typology plays then a double game, with on one hand clear-shaped night spaces and on the other hand a daily space evolving in a row with pinching and dilating effects.Save this picture!© Matthieu GafsouSave this picture!Floor planSave this picture!© Matthieu GafsouThe particularly constraining status of the plot generates the shape of the building, a triangle-rectangle with two truncated corners. Within the external matrix, the internal spatiality evokes the “fractal” by proposing an orthogonal geometry of the spaces of the rooms. At the meeting of these two figures, an interstitial counter-form emerges which colonises the day spaces (entrance, kitchen, dining room, living room, office) and organises them in a row by pinching and dilating effects.Save this picture!© Matthieu GafsouIn order to maximise the rental surface area on a small plot of land, the stairs are arranged on the facade. This extraction of circulation areas outside the built volume allows an optimisation of the typology of the flats by grouping the service areas (lift, bathrooms, kitchen) around a minimal central core. On the façade, the staggered arrangement of the balconies guarantees the integration of the three flights of stairs while reinforcing the collective identity of the building and encouraging interaction between residents.Save this picture!© Matthieu GafsouSave this picture!AxonometricContextual insertion is achieved through the reinterpretation of numerous elements borrowed from the 19th-century architectural register that is expressed on the neighbouring buildings: load-bearing facade, mansard roof, French windows, window frame markings, projecting balconies, railings.Save this picture!© Matthieu GafsouProject gallerySee allShow lessOn World Cities Day UN-Habitat Releases 2020 Report on The Value of Sustainable Urba…Architecture NewsKCAP Designs Bucheon Daejang New Town for South KoreaArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Renens, SwitzerlandLocation to be used only as a reference.

EUA comanda el golpe, pero no consigue encarnarlo en Venezuela

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this Dos conclusiones emergen del conflicto venezolano después de casi dos semanas del autoproclamamiento de Juan Guaidó. El primero es que la dirección del intento de gobierno paralelo reside en los Estados Unidos, el segundo es que, por el momento, la fuerza principal también. Deberán esperar quienes vinieron al país a buscar las imágenes de un país transformado en un escenario de batallas abiertas. El sábado fue una nueva confirmación de esa conclusión que parece aplicar en este momento del ataque.La dirección: para entender qué sucede y qué puede pasar en Venezuela es necesario seguir a quiénes toman las decisiones desde EE.UU. John Bolton, asesor de seguridad, Mike Pence, vicepresidente, Mike Pompeo, secretario de Estado, Elliot Abrams, el enviado especial para manejar la cuestión Venezuela, Steven Mnuchin, secretario del tesoro, Marco Rubio, senador republicano, y el mismo Donald Trump. Es una pérdida de tiempo seguir a Juan Guaidó, o cualquier otro dirigente de la derecha, para saber qué puede pasar.Pence, por ejemplo, ofreció un discurso en una iglesia de Miami el día viernes. Allí afirmó que es necesario “eliminar” a los gobiernos de Venezuela, Cuba y Nicaragua, que se trata de un asunto “regional”, y que “el tiempo de la negociación terminó”.Bolton, el jefeBolton por su parte se paró desde el lugar de jefe: “Los Estados Unidos instan a todos los militares venezolanos a seguir el liderazgo del general Yánez, y a proteger a los manifestantes pacíficos que apoyan la democracia”. Bolton se refirió a Francisco Yánez, general de aviación de la Fuerza Armada Nacional Bolivariana (Fanb), que difundió un video en la mañana del sábado donde anunció su apoyo a Guaidó.El asesor de seguridad también afirmó que enviarán la denominada ayuda humanitaria: “Siguiendo la petición del presidente interino Juan Guaidó, y en consulta con sus funcionarios, EE.UU. movilizará y transportará medicamentos de ayuda humanitaria, suministros quirúrgicos y suplementos nutricionales para el pueblo de Venezuela. Es hora de que Maduro se quite de en medio”.Guaidó, en la movilización que realizó la derecha el sábado en Caracas, declaró: “Anunciamos una coalición mundial por la ayuda humanitaria y la libertad en Venezuela. Ya tenemos tres puntos de acopio para la ayuda: Cúcuta es el primero. Otro estará en Brasil y otro en una isla del Caribe”. Su único anuncio fue el que ya había dicho Bolton. La cadena de mandos es de una evidencia que casi no intentan disimular, aunque a veces necesiten aclararlo, como Rubio, quien afirmó que “EE.UU. no organizó este movimiento, sino que es liderado por el pueblo venezolano”.Guaidó solo especificó un punto concreto para la entrada: Cúcuta, zona fronteriza caracterizada por la alta presencia del paramilitarismo colombiano, mafias de contrabando –ligadas o sinónimos del paramilitarismo– donde fueron entrenados quienes intentaron el asesinato de Nicolás Maduro en agosto del año pasado.Es uno de los principales puntos que podrían ser activados como foco críticos, donde desatar incendios, con la particularidad de la alta exposición mediática. Fue desde allí, por ejemplo, que Luis Almagro, secretario de la Organización de Estados Americanos, afirmó que no se descartaba la opción militar contra el gobierno de Maduro.Es probable que en este escenario planteado el centro del conflicto alterne entre Caracas y esos puntos críticos. ¿Cómo piensan hacer ingresar la ayuda? ¿Con qué logística, fuerza, permiso, actores? ¿Qué tipo de acción acompaña el ingreso?El “gobierno paralelo” necesita territorio, capacidad de ejercer poder, dos dimensiones que no posee. Lo único que hace “presidente” a Guaidó en lo nacional es que la base social de la derecha lo nombre de esa manera. Es evidente que no tiene, ni él ni toda la derecha reunida, la fuerza para llevar adelante una estrategia de estas características.No pasaránEl gobierno no dejará que ingresen fuerzas norteamericanas o actores contratados para abrir una grieta en el territorio nacional. Ningún gobierno dejaría que una fuerza extranjera -o sus agentes- ingrese sin su permiso.El juego está trancado. EE.UU. plantea que no habrá diálogo, descarta intentos como el de los gobiernos de México y Uruguay, o posiciones como la del secretario general de las Naciones Unidas, que afirman la necesidad de un diálogo.Algunos países de la Unión Europea plantearon la creación de un Grupo de contacto internacional con Venezuela -integrado por unos diez o doce miembros, no todos europeos-, para avanzar en la propuesta de volver a convocar elecciones, con un plazo de noventa días para evaluar resultados.En ese cuadro Maduro anunció en la movilización realizada el mismo sábado, donde el chavismo hizo una nueva demostración de fuerzas, que consultará acerca de la posibilidad de anticipar las elecciones legislativas que deberían hacerse en el 2020. Sería una manera de intentar desactivar a la Asamblea Nacional, con todos los riesgos que conlleva. ¿Es preferible dejarla avanzar en un intento de gobierno paralelo por fuera de toda ley con el objetivo de lograr un golpe de Estado?Parece claro en este momento que los EE.UU. avanzarán y utilizarán cualquier argumento para redoblar su narrativa de que no habrá negociación. Muchos de sus mensajes tienen por objetivo quebrar la voluntad de lucha del chavismo y en particular de la Fanb, a la que necesitan partir. Para esto último han creado un abanico, desde la promesa de amnistía hasta las amenazas de intervención, pasando por cuentas creadas en redes sociales para que los soldados no obedezcan a los generales.Termina así otra semana en Venezuela. No habrá descanso. Los discursos de los EE.UU. remiten a una ofensiva final que se han puesto a conducir. El chavismo se mantiene entero, movilizado, con voluntad de diálogo y de pelea.Fuente: página12.com.arlast_img read more

Arrests and incidents involving foreign journalists show government is not keeping Olympic Games promises

first_img News June 2, 2021 Find out more ChinaAsia – Pacific News RSF_en The arrest of two Agence France-Presse reporters on 12 September is the latest in a string of cases of foreign journalists being obstructed in their work. They show that the less stringent regulations introduced in January are being applied erratically and only when less sensitive issues are involved. At least 32 foreign journalists have been detained or prevented by police from doing reports since January.“The way the authorities have treated journalists from Agence France-Presse, the BBC World Service and other international news organisations in recent weeks do not bode well for the ability of the foreign media to work during the Olympic Games,” the press freedom organisation said.“These are not unfortunate blunders,” Reporters Without Borders continued. “They are the result of a clear lack of goodwill on the part of the police, who refuse to let reporters travel and investigate freely. We call on the International Olympic Committee to intervene with the Chinese authorities to ensure that the rules introduced in January are finally respected.”The two AFP reporters were detained for five hours on September 12th when they tried to go to Shengyou, a village south of Beijing where thugs working for local Communist Party officials killed six people and injured about 50 others in a dispute over land in 2005. The police accused the journalists of working clandestinely and demanded the name of their local contacts. AFP said the local police refused to be guided by the new rules for the foreign press.BBC World Service reporter Dan Griffiths was also detained and turned back when he recently tried to go to Shengyou. According to his account of the experience on the BBC website, the police asked him: “What are you doing here? Who are your contacts in the village?” They escorted him to the nearest town, Dingzhou, and then to the motorway leading back to Beijing. He asked them if they would treat journalists like this when China hosts the Olympics. “Oh, everything will be different then,” an official replied. Foreign ministry officials apologised later.In another recent case, police prevented a group of seven foreign journalists, including a TV crew, from meeting Yuan Weijing, the wife of imprisoned lawyer Chen Guangcheng, at the Beijing home of two activists, Hu Jia and Zeng Jinyan, on 24 August. The police said Hu Jia was under house arrest and made the reporters register at the neighbourhood police station.Security guards at a court in Yixing prevented reporters from the New York Times and South China Morning Post from attending the trial of environmental activist Wu Lihong on 10 August. Plain-clothes police also harassed reporters waiting outside the courthouse.Many human rights activists have also been harassed by the political police for talking to the foreign media. Activist Yao Lifa, for example was accused on 11 September of spreading rumours after he gave an interview to Radio Free Asia.Forty per cent of the 163 China-based foreign journalists polled by the Foreign Correspondents Club of China (FCCC) in 2007 said they had experienced some form of interference by the authorities since 1 January. A total of 157 incidents (arrests, surveillance, intimidation of sources, violence or threats) were reported to the FCCC. Asked if China had kept the promise made in 2001 by Wang Wei of the Beijing Organising Committee for the Games to give the foreign media complete freedom to work, 67 per cent said No. Only 8.6 per cent said Yes. to go further ChinaAsia – Pacific China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figures Newscenter_img Follow the news on China April 27, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information News Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes September 14, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Arrests and incidents involving foreign journalists show government is not keeping Olympic Games promises Organisation Receive email alerts March 12, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

If we allow this, it will become a chaotic situation. We have assistance of Union and States”, Justice S K Kaul told Senior Advocate Jaideep Gupta, who was representing the MP from Krishnanagar, West Bengal.The bench stated that there was no requirement to recall the order, as the Court was already considering the issues in the suo moto case.”We do not find any good ground to recall the order since this Court has already entertained SMW (C) No. 6/2020 where all the issues are under consideration”, the order stated.The bench however allowed the Senior Advocate to make submissions, upon which he put forth certain suggestions for streamlining migrant transportation and registrations. After hearing the Centre, several States and few intervenors, the Court reserved orders in the matter for June 9.In the recall application, Moitra also sought for the constitution of a court monitored independent committee to assess the crisis and recommend suitable remedies, stating that the Union Government had “utterly failed” to take care of the situation.On April 3, the Court had taken suo moto notice of a letter written by her regarding the plight of stranded migrant workers. The letter was converted into a writ petition, and a report was sought for from the Central Government. However, on April 13, the Court dismissed the writ petition, through a one line order without stating any reason.Click here to download OrderRead OrderNext Storylast_img read more
