Stock market crash round 2 is your opportunity to make a million for retirement

first_imgSimply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Stock market crash round 2 is your opportunity to make a million for retirement Harvey Jones has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. The stock market crash in March was a real shocker. The FTSE 100 fell by a third, bottoming out at just below 5,000 on 23 March.At the height of the turmoil, many investors panicked. Fearing shares would fall even further, they sold everything they possibly could.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…That’s a natural human reaction, but a disastrous mistake for an investor. A stock market crash isn’t the time to sell shares. It’s the time to buy. If you want to build a million-pound portfolio for your retirement, you need to stay invested at times like these.As famed investor John Templeton said: “Don’t panic. The time to sell is before the crash, not after.”To make a million, you shouldn’t sell even before a crash either. You should stay invested until the time comes when you need to generate retirement income from your portfolio.Stock market crash opportunityRevising Templeton’s quote, I’d say the best time to buy shares is after the crash. Or right in the middle of it. That way you can pick up your favourite companies at dramatically reduced prices. Then simply hang on for the recovery. It’ll come. All you have to do is be patient, while reinvesting all your dividends for growth.If that worries you, remember this quote from George Soros: “The worse a situation becomes, the less it takes to turn it around, the bigger the upside.”There was a lot of upside on 23 March. The FTSE 100 rose about 30% in the subsequent recovery. If you missed the opportunity to buy shares in the March stock market crash, you may soon have a second chance.The scary thing is that Covid-19 hasn’t been defeated. Worldwide, it’s killed more than half a million in just seven months. The number of cases now tops 12m. Some people worry about a second wave. Others point out that the first wave isn’t over yet.Start searching the FTSE 100 todayAs I write this, the FTSE 100 is slipping back towards 6,000. It’s now more than 20% below its mid-January peak of 7,674. That means you already have a buying opportunity today. A second round of the stock market crash would give you an even better one.Don’t fear the next crash. Instead, make maximum use of it. Start scanning the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 for buying opportunities. Brave, contrarian investors may want to use the bear market to take a punt on ravaged industries, such as travel and tourism. Personally, I wouldn’t do that now.I would target solid companies with strong balance sheets, loyal customers, minimal debt, and a clear route out of the crisis. Positive dividend prospects would also help.There’s no getting away from it. Stock market crash round-two could be brutal. It could also be a massive contrarian buying opportunity. If you’re investing to make a million-pound portfolio, get ready to seize the moment. Adventurous investors like you won’t want to miss out on what could be a truly astonishing opportunity…You see, over the past three years, this AIM-listed company has been quietly powering ahead… rewarding its shareholders with generous share price growth thanks to a carefully orchestrated ‘buy and build’ strategy.And with a first-class management team at the helm, a proven, well-executed business model, plus market-leading positions in high-margin, niche products… our analysts believe there’s still plenty more potential growth in the pipeline.Here’s your chance to discover exactly what has got our Motley Fool UK investment team all hot-under-the-collar about this tiny £350+ million enterprise… inside a specially prepared free investment report.But here’s the really exciting part… right now, we believe many UK investors have quite simply never heard of this company before!

Y ¿favorecen —o afectan negativamente— el relato bíblico?Algunos episcopales, como Faith Bryant, de Highland, California, cree que las licencias creativas de Hollywood con películas como Noé [Noah], que se estrenó en marzo, con Russell Crowe en el papel estelar del patriarca constructor del Arca, afectan negativamente algunos entrañables relatos bíblicos.Pero otros opinan que es importante establecer las conexiones. Que, si las películas —fieles o no a los relatos bíblicos— pueden dar lugar a un compromiso religioso más profundo o incluso orientar a los no iniciados en la dirección de la Iglesia, tanto mejor.Lisa Brown, directora del ministerio de los niños en Mount Lebanon, Pensilvania, celebró una gala de alfombra roja y otras actividades después de “que se aparecieran muchísimos niños de repente” cuando filmaron en la iglesia Las estrellas tienen la culpa [The Fault in Our Stars].El Rdo. Alex Riffee, que está a punto de inaugurar en enero un “Ministerio de la Teología del Cine” en la iglesia de Santiago Apóstol [St. James Church] en Louisa, Virginia, considera que incluso las series de televisión atrevidas como South Park pueden suscitar conversaciones más profundas en torno a la fe.Russell Crowe se reunió con el arzobispo de Cantórbery Justin Welby en el Palacio de Lambeth al día siguiente de asistir al estreno en Londres de la película Noé [en la cual tiene el papel protagónico]. Foto/Palacio de Lambeth.Contar la historia, o noBryant, que ha sido episcopal durante mucho tiempo, dijo que había esperado ansiosamente ver la película épica sobre Noé, el entrañable relato bíblico que ella aprendió de niña. La protagonizaba Crowe, que tuvo un encuentro muy difundido con el arzobispo de Cantórbery Justin Welby, después del estreno del filme, para hablar de fe y de espiritualidad.Pero Bryant no encontró mucha fe ni espiritualidad en la película, que tampoco tuvo buenas reseñas. Dijo que le había inspirado su propio éxodo —de las películas religiosas estilo Hollywood en general.“Había un montón de cosas en la película que eran falsas”, recuerda Bryant, de 55 años. Presentaron a Noé como alguien que tal vez era un poco loco. No lo presentaron como un hombre recto y justo. [La película] resultó perturbadora. Era casi un poco ciencia ficción. Una persona que ve la película primero y luego lee la Biblia dirá ‘no, eso no es como la película. ¿Dónde está todo el entramado que estaba en la película?’”.Noé y Éxodo: dioses y reyes no son los único intentos recientes de recontar relatos bíblicos en la gran pantalla. En el curso de los últimos meses, un montón de películas con temas religiosos cristianos incluyen a Hijo de Dios [Son of God] producida por quien fuera la protagonista de Camino al cielo [Highway to Heaven] Roma Downey y Dejado [Left Behind] protagonizado por Nicholas Cage, que alude al Rapto [de la Iglesia].Y ahora hay un sacerdote que se ha convertido en cineasta (véase el artículo relacionado), el Rdo. Paul-Gordon Chandler, que está coproduciendo Ports of Call, una historia de amor interreligiosa que tiene que ver más con tender puentes que con la incorporación de temas religiosos [al cine].Russell Crowe es el protagonista de Noé [Noah], que se estrenó en marzo de 2014. Foto del cibersitio oficial de Noah.Riffee dice que rechazar de plano esas películas sin sopesar sus posibilidades de establecer conexiones entre la Iglesia y el mundo secular es una oportunidad perdida.Y si bien él no cree que Noé fuese una película particularmente buena, “si no tenía otro propósito que entretener, que es lo que Hollywood intenta hacer”, dijo. “Tenemos que recordar que no intentaban contar la historia desde una perspectiva religiosa en absoluto.“Eso significa que ellos cambian la historia en base a lo que la gente quiere ver y oír”, pero la popularidad de tales películas puede “ser también el punto de partida de una conversación que lleve a las personas, como primera providencia, a abrir la Biblia” añadió Riffee, que tiene 28 años.Él espera hacer uso de su “ministerio de la teología del cine” para captar a familias y niños, porque los temas bíblicos abundan en toda clase de medios de difusión y cualquiera que sea la película, “si creemos, con nuestra óptica, que siempre hay una conexión podemos conectarnos con el mundo entero y encontrar lo que hay de sacro en él”.Por ejemplo, dice él, Noé podría juzgarse a través de la óptica de la conservación de la creación e incluso podría servir como preámbulo a una discusión acerca del calentamiento global y de la justicia medioambiental.Él cree que es bueno que “se empeñen en hacer los relatos. Si la Iglesia va y la ve y la ataca, la gente va a verla y no tenemos control sobre eso. Algunos la verán [Éxodo: dioses y reyes] porque les gusta Christian Bale. Podemos hacer algo al respecto reaccionando a lo que acontece, interviniendo, desestimando algo del contenido que no creamos que en verdad se propone comunicar”.Incluso programas de televisión tales como South Park, uno de los peores de ese medio” suscitan una conversación que vale la pena, agregó Riffee. “A mí no me dejaban verlo y tenía que irme a casa de un amigo para verlo, pero la idea consistía en expresar un punto de vista mostrando los extremos hasta el ridículo.“Si puedes sobrepasar eso, ciertamente [esos programas] tienen algo profundo y significativo que decir, y también abordan muchísimos temas religiosos. Siempre hay un a perla que uno puede llevarse, porque tratan de mostrar una verdad central en la que todo el mundo se espera que pueda convenir”.Charlton Heston, en el papel de Moisés, en la película de 1956 Los Diez Mandamientos. Foto de Wikimedia Commons.El ‘foro cinematográfico’ de Misurí guía a los creyentes en un viaje de descubrimientoJim Andris, de 76 años, y vecino de San Luis, Misurí, dijo que la primera vez que vio la epopeya Los Diez Mandamientos, protagonizada por Charlton Heston, creyó que la película era el evangelio.“Desde entonces he recorrido una larga trayectoria de investigación espiritual”, dijo Andris a ENS. “Crecí con esas grandes visiones de Hollywood de los patriarcas de la Biblia. En ese tiempo, yo advertía que esas películas nos ayudaban. Las veía acríticamente como puertas que me daban acceso a la comprensión del mensaje de las Escrituras cristianas”.En la actualidad, él ve las películas, así como las historias bíblicas mismas, como un intento de “decirnos algo respecto a la manera en que debemos vivir nuestras vidas. Hay alguna verdad, si escarbamos en busca de ella, cada uno de nosotros tiene su propia interpretación”.Además, dijo el profesor universitario jubilado que ahora asiste a la iglesia episcopal de La Trinidad [Trinity Episcopal Church] en East St. Louis, “existe la fascinación con las batallas sagradas, o con las batallas entre lo justo y lo injusto donde uno ve hora tras hora la más asombrosa e increíble carnicería … con fragorosos sonidos y escenas espectaculares. En un sentido, yo creo que todo eso son tonterías. Puede resultar entretenido, pero eso no nos acerca a la verdad”.Añadió que “la real verdad de Jesucristo no es muy apasionante. Jesucristo dio un ejemplo no violento y Hollywood parece estar obsedido con la violencia”.Él reconoce los méritos de un foro cinematográfico que ofrece otra feligresa de La Trinidad, Martha Baker, con una atractiva y más profunda comprensión de la fe personal y de los temas teológicos en los mensajes de las películas.Baker, que es crítica de cine de KDHX-St. Louis Radio, ha reseñado filmes desde 1977 y “excluye deliberadamente películas como Noé’ de los debates del foro parroquial.“Nunca he escogido una película con lo que pudiéramos llamar un tema religioso, con la excepción tal vez de El camino [The Way] de Martin Sheen”, la película sobre la peregrinación que hace su personaje por el camino de Santiago de Compostela en España, dijo Baker. “La otra fue una película acerca de Hildegarda de Bingen. Ambas eran fabulosas en sí mismas y por sí mismas”.Pero algunas películas, como La pasión del Cristo de Mel Gibson en 2004, ella cree que afectan negativamente el mensaje cristiano. “Fue una de las peores películas que jamás se haya hecho, en general, y luego, cuando uno le añade las especificidades de la parte cristiana de ese estilo, hace más daño que bien. Fue perjudicial para el mensaje cristiano en su más amplia acepción”.Valiéndose de Las estrellas para llegar a los jóvenesLisa Brown, directora del Ministerio Infantil, aprovechó al máximo la oportunidad para el debate y la participación cuando la película Las estrellas tienen la culpa se filmó en su parroquia.La película, que se estrenó en junio, se basa en el libro del mismo nombre [The Fault in Our Stars] del episcopal John Green.“Lo incluyeron en la lista de una de las 100 personas más influyentes de la revista TIME. Se le conoce por sus vídeos de Crash Course en YouTube, sobre todo de lecciones de historia, y los niños los ven. Siempre que uno tiene la oportunidad de que la Iglesia se conecte con algo tan culturalmente relevante, tenemos la oportunidad de llegar a muchísimos niños”.Aunque algunos se sintieron decepcionados de la visión que da la película de la iglesia y el clero, el filme transmitió un mensaje convincente en un momento en el que muchos jóvenes ven la Iglesia como irrelevante o inútil, dijo Brown, porque la joven pareja regresó a la iglesia en un momento decisivo en la película.Su grupo juvenil “se sentía embriagado de que algo tan tremendamente sensacional estuviera asociado con su iglesia”, apuntó ella.Se montó una especie de premier la noche del estreno de la película, con una gala de alfombra roja abierta para todos los jóvenes, explicó Brown. “Trabajamos con un cine de la localidad, alquilamos una alfombra roja, la congregación hizo aperitivos y comida. Algunos chicos vinieron de traje, otros en camisetas”, contó.Fue una experiencia maravillosa, pero Brown dijo que, si bien “uno puede mirar cualquier película a través de una óptica o una perspectiva cristiana, siempre me muestro cautelosa porque creo que a veces hay muchísimas reinterpretaciones que no reflejan necesariamente la manera en que yo, como educadora cristiana, usaría la historia”.“Existe un espectro tan amplio, incluso de creencias cristianas… que no creo que alguien llegue a conclusiones acerca de mi fe basándose en lo que se muestra en una película. Siempre que uno saca un relato de contexto, puede resultar problemático”.– La Rda. Pat McCaughan es corresponsal de Episcopal News Service. Traducción de Vicente Echerri.

This project was commissioned in 2004 by a young couple who had purchased a piece of land and there planned to build their home. As initial conditions we just had the obligation of designing a single floor house for the lowest cost possible. One thing was obvious the site had a breathtaking view and this turned out to be the core of the whole project. In the first sketches it became evident that the house should be a kind of leap into the void, a volume that project itself in to the landscape.Save this picture!© 100 Planos ArquitecturaLocated on top of a valley, Jorge Guedes’s house, appears as a large picture window that covers the landscape. The building rises from the principles of volumetric aggregation patent in vernacular architecture of the region. The house is an organic whole, composed by three bodies, which extends through the floor, searching each one of the volumes for the best orientation, solar and landscape, closing in itself, the different valences of the house.Save this picture!© 100 Planos ArquitecturaA “Y”, where the intersection of the arms is both the entry and the point of distribution, separating the public spaces from the private areas. The wealth of interior space is not given by architectural complexity but by the different relationships that are created between the interior and landscape.Save this picture!© 100 Planos ArquitecturaThe spaces that are not facing the valley, bathroom, laundry and kitchen were provided with a small orange courtyard that allows them to benefit from direct sunlight without creating imbalances in the elevations. 100 Planos Arquitectura oversaw the project implementation with responsibility for project design, construction management, choice of materials and adherence to highest environmental standards. Total building cost came just under 100,000.Save this picture!planProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse in Hinomiya / TSC ArchitectsArticlesPrimary school in Rafz / kitArticles Share Jorge Gudes’s House / 100 Planos ArquitecturaSave this projectSaveJorge Gudes’s House / 100 Planos Arquitectura “COPY” “COPY” Houses Projects CopyHouses•Vila pouca de Aguiar, Portugal CopyAbout this office100 Planos ArquitecturaOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesVila pouca de AguiarPortugalPublished on January 03, 2011Cite: “Jorge Gudes’s House / 100 Planos Arquitectura” 03 Jan 2011.

S*Park is an eco-friendly urban agrihood community development on an entire city block in Denver, Colorado. An incubator for sustainable living, it maximizes the use of sunlight and green spaces, provides density and variety in living spaces, and savings on energy bills. The overarching concept was to remove the car from the site (moving to park underground) and allow a space for urban farming, a shared communal park space, and a planted stormwater retention system among the residential buildings.Save this picture!© Jess Blackwell PhotographySave this picture!SiteSave this picture!© Jess Blackwell PhotographyThe goal was to create an outdoor space that would serve both community and ecological functions. Sunlight was a driving force in the master planning of the S*Park site. The sun’s interaction with the site motivated the decision to open the south end of the block to urban farming and an outdoor green space that can be inhabited year-round. Adjacent to the ground level urban garden is a 7,000 sq.-ft.  second-story greenhouse, which captures enough natural light to grow microgreens without the use of artificial grow lights. This low energy, high tech glass building has a strong presence that anchors the corner of the site.Save this picture!© Jess Blackwell PhotographyEnergy. At S*Park, everything but heating and the shared outdoor grills is run on electricity, designed with the forethought that Colorado will be moving toward renewable solar and wind energy sources. A 200-kWh rooftop photovoltaic array offsets the site’s energy use. The project utilizes high-efficiency LED lighting inside and out, high performing low-E windows, and advanced insulation levels of R-38 for roofs and R-20 for walls. Lastly, the nature of multi-family residential spaces is that shared walls result in less building envelope which translates to less cooling and heat loss. Save this picture!© James FlorioA S*Park unit uses approximately 1/3 of the energy to operate compared to a comparable unit in a new multi-family apartment building. Aesthetic Approach. Much of the brick at S*Park is reclaimed from Mendoza Brickyard, the Denver-based demolition company that salvages material from buildings torn down throughout the city. The various patterns and uses of brick create interest and texture, as well as supporting specific functions. Strategically omitted bricks at balconies and outdoor stairs allow light to pass through as well as offering a view out. Turned bricks on the ground level facades encourage greenery to climb. The brick and glass brick wall system that wraps the southern façade of the Japanese restaurant, Uchi, is a completely new wall system designed and engineered in the Tres Birds shop. The wall system creates both privacy and visual interest inside and out of the space and lets sunlight play geometric games through the glass bricks.Save this picture!© James FlorioSave this picture!© James FlorioTres Birds has played a unique role in the development of S* Park, acting as master planner, architect, and interior designer for the entire scope of the project, as well as general contractor for Uchi and the “art in the park” swing and birdhouse installations.

Aadhaar Necessary To Travel During Lockdown; People Not Wearing Masks ‘Super Spreaders’ : Bombay High Court

first_imgNews UpdatesAadhaar Necessary To Travel During Lockdown; People Not Wearing Masks ‘Super Spreaders’ : Bombay High Court Sharmeen Hakim26 April 2021 7:18 AMShare This – x Coming down heavily on lockdown violators, including people not wearing masks properly, the Aurangabad bench of the Bombay High Court asked the police in 11 Marathwada districts, in Maharashtra, to take strict action against such violators. All persons wearing a mask below the chin or exposing their nose shall be booked for under relevant offenses as such people turn out to be SUPER SPREADERS, a division bench of Justices Ravindra Ghuge and BU Debadwar said. The bench also directed the local authorities to take action against any politician or people’s representative trying to save such violators and book them for causing interference in the discharge of duties by public servants. Ministers or elected representatives shall not exert pressure or influence on any traffic official or law enforcement agency for extricating violators. Any such person or people’s representative shall also be booked for causing interference in the discharge of official duties. “I wear a mask even when I go jogging, but we find that youngsters are traveling triple-seat and even four persons on a single motorcycle without a helmet and masks. Residents in our jurisdiction need to practice restraint & discipline,” Justice Ghuge said. The bench passed several directions, on Monday, while issuing notice to the respondents in its suo motu PIL on covid management in Marathwada, based on newspaper reports. The issues are related to the cumbersome documentation process for conducting a Covid-19 deceased’s last rites, rampant black marketing of the anti-viral drug, Remdesivir, problems related to oxygen supply in the region, lockdown violations, and Antigen testing kits in primary Covid Care Centers in rural Maharashtra. Wear a mask while riding the motorbike, driving a car, and carry an Aadhaar card During the hearing, the bench asked law enforcement agencies to take action against people failing to wear helmets and masks even when in their vehicles. Moreover, those traveling after the Monday-Friday relaxation hours of 7 am-11 pm, must carry their Aadhaar Cards to validate reasons for travel. The restriction would apply to medical professionals and government officials, not on duty. Plan Electric crematoriums. Taking cognizance of news reports that people at funeral ghats are seeking bribes and kerosene is being used the bench ordered the Divisional Commissioner of Aurangabad to consider initiating steps for setting up electric crematoriums. “There shall be a constant check to ensure the relatives of the dead person are not harassed and money is not extracted from them for performing the funeral rites.” The bench further directed that relatives of the deceased performing the funeral rights will not be required to seek permission of the local police station if the number of people attending is within limits. Those exceeding the limits must be booked, the bench said. Black Marketing of Remdesivir In so far as persons found to have sold Remdesivir injections at premium prices (nothing short of black marketing) shall be booked under relevant IPC sections. The establishment would initiate disciplinary action against in-service persons (regarding black marketing of Remdesivir)Lauds Maharashtra’s efforts for Oxygen management ideas Taking note of the meetings conducted by the Divisional Commissioner of Aurangabad, in which he has urged private hospitals to have their own oxygen manufacturing plants, the bench observed, “We find the said suggestion to be highly appreciable and we record our appreciation for the steps being initiated by the state of Maharashtra as is reflected in the news items,” The court directed high priority to be given to private hospitals seeking these permissions, subject to safety protocols. “This should be subject to the safety protocols to not repeat the incidents of Nashik and Virar,” the bench said. Regarding news reports that private hospitals are discharging some critical patients, the bench observed “We find such situations to be extremely disturbing and it would be unconscionable.” Use alternatives to Remdesivir The bench noted that there are several news reports wherein the Divisional Commissioner of Aurangabad is seen asking people to use alternatives of Remdesivir, like Tocilizumab and Itolizumab and Virafin to help in the treatment of covid, and these drugs are equally effective in absence of Remdesivir. The Bench directed that awareness be created to stop the insistence of the Remdesivir injection, especially as Virafin is a drug with equal potency. By keeping in view that a single dose of Virafin is equivalent to 6 doses of Remdesivir. “Hospitals are demanding Remdesivir because it has become widely known to help covid-19 patients. But if hospitals don’t use alternatives and the whole State demands Remdesivir, it puts pressure on manufacturing and creates a shortage.” Supply Antigen Testing Kits to Primary Health Care Centres The court noted an intervenor’s submissions that rural parts of Nanded, in Maharashtra, are being ignored and several patients were traveling due to a lack of health infrastructure, which was increasing the mortality rate. Appreciating the concern, the court directed civic authorities to ensure rapid antigen test kits are provided to primary health care centers in all 12 districts and submit a statement to the court on May 3, on the progress. We know that Antigen can also be a false negative, but a positive is a clear indicator of being covid positive, the bench said. The Aurangabad Bench took noted that the Nagpur Bench that recently directed the State to provide 10,000 vials of Remdesivir for the District, after it was pointed out that there was an inequitable distribution of the medicines. We want to clarify; we don’t intend to grab the share of testing kits or Remdesivir injections from any other district. We are aware of the criticism faced by the Nagpur Bench. We will say, follow your distribution policy and ensure timely supply, the bench said.
