In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Manika Premsingh | Thursday, 20th February, 2020 Image source: Getty Images. While the FTSE 100 index hasn’t shown sustained increases in the few past years, 2020 began on a hopeful note. With a spike in mid-December last year, it was off to a good start. It’s still 3.4% higher than in 2019. But recent global uncertainties, especially the ongoing struggle to contain the coronavirus, have weakened equity markets in recent days.Weakening economy Based on the IMF’s last forecasts, global growth was expected to quicken its pace in 2020. But I suspect these forecasts will be downgraded. Life in China and the economy have already been impacted. Rating agency Moody’s has lowered Chinese growth by 0.6 percentage points to 5.2% due to the spread of the coronavirus, which has infected 72,000 people so far. 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…China is the second largest economy in the world, after the US. But strong trade and investment ties between the two countries means that if the Chinese economy suffers, it will have ripple effects on the US as well. It’s unsurprising then, that US tech giant, Apple, has just said that it won’t be able to meet its sales guidance for the quarter because Chinese factories aren’t operational. Preparing for worst case Not to completely give in to morbid thoughts, but with this as the backdrop, I think it’s a good idea to consider the worst-case investing scenario. And by worst-case scenario, I mean a stock market crash, which is a sharp, sustained fall in share prices, driven by recessionary conditions. A good example is the financial crisis in 2008, which saw the FTSE 100 lose over 31% of its value at the start of the year. Steer clear In making investing decisions with a crash in mind, I’d start by avoiding banks. If a next crash were to occur, it might not originate with financials, like the last one. But I think it’s important to keep two things in mind. One, a FTSE 100 bank like Lloyds Bank, has never seen share prices go back anywhere close to the boom years of the mid-2000s. It’s been over a decade since the crisis hit. It even took a few years for it to start paying dividends again. Two, banks are vulnerable to recessions, irrespective of which sector triggers them. The next recession might not be the worst one ever for banks, in fact the bounce-back may even be a quick one. But going by the share’s past performance, I wouldn’t want to take any chances just yet. Get defensive That said, Warren Buffett’s sage advice that encourages us to be greedy and buy when others are fearful still holds. But we still need to make investment choices carefully. Typically, consumer defensives are good choices during such times. Their performance is less likely to be impacted during recessions because they provide essential goods and services. They may not always be the fastest-growing, but there are a number of FTSE 100 stocks to choose from in this segment, which can provide good returns even in hard times.

Tuesday has proved to be a landmark day in the life of the FTSE 250. Investor demand for market shares has picked up thanks in part to forecast-beating economic data from Japan and the eurozone this morning. As a consequence, Britain’s second-tier index struck fresh record peaks a shade below 23,000 points in morning trading.The FTSE 250 has since settled lower and was last only fractionally higher on the day (around 22,920 points). But the Paragon Banking Group (LSE: PAG) share price is having no such problems holding onto meaty gains.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…A bubbly trading statement helped Paragon’s share price also strike new highs of 575p per share in afternoon trade. It has retraced a bit, but at 567p per share the bank remains 11% higher than at Monday’s close. The buy-to-let lender has now risen 54% in value over the past year.FTSE 250 firm enjoys record half-year profitsParagon Banking Group announced that underlying profit came in at £82.9m during the six months to March. This represented a half-year record and was up 44.9% year-on-year. Net interest margins — the difference between what banks offer to borrowers and savers — rose to 2.32% from 2.29% a year earlier.A sharp fall in bad loans from the same period a year earlier also helped the bottom line beat forecasts. Impairments clocked in at £6m during the first half versus £30m in the same period in financial 2020.New lending at the FTSE 250 firm was up 45.1% in the first half versus the previous six months. Paragon Bank said that new loans were also just below pre-coronavirus levels in the latest half-year period. Buy-to-let advances were down 5% from a year earlier, though these were up 58% from the previous six months.“The strong performance in the first half of the year reflects the resilience of the business model both financially and operationally as the economy recovers from the Covid pandemic”, Paragon said. It added that its markets “have seen healthy quarter-on-quarter improvements in activity [and that its business] has been building momentum”.A mixed outlook?So what do brokers think UK share pickers should expect in the coming months? Commenting on today’s results, managing director Rob Murphy of Edison Group says, “Investors will be pleased to see the beginnings of recovery in the group’s key buy-to-let mortgage business”. He notes that “performance strengthened” at Paragon Banking Group in the first half and that total loans rose 4.7% from a year earlier to £10.9bn. This reflected “a more positive outlook for the wider property market”, he says.However, Murphy has sounded a note of caution concerning the firm’s commercial lending division. He says that “Similar levels of recovery are yet to be seen” here and that Paragon saw lending fall in the motor, SME, and structured lending sectors on a year-on-year basis. He adds that “The looming prospect of the closure of government support schemes means that many uncertainties remain”.

LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Double booked: Jonny Wilkinson’s commitments with Toulon prevented him from taking a Lions spotBy Bea AspreyONE MAN’S loss is another man’s gain. While 37 Lions have booked their seats on the plane to Australia, a few more are left licking their wounds. The cruel thing about sport is that the casualties from Warren Gatland’s squad would make a formidable team. Here’s our pick of the bunch… Full-back There weren’t too many surprises here, but the likes of Lee Byrne, a 2009 tourist, Mike Brown and Alex Goode were on the fringes. Goode is held in high regard, and his ability to read the game, as well as play fly-half, could’ve been a welcome addition against the threatening Wallaby backs.Winging out: Simon Zebo didn’t make itWingsIt’s been a while since Chris Ashton hit the highs of that try against Australia, and few could argue against the lethal combination of Wales pair George North and Alex Cuthbert. But should Simon Zebo’s magic footwork have earned him a shot at the Wallabies? The other name on everyone’s lips is Wasps’ Christian Wade, who sliced through Leinster’s defence like a hot knife through butter in their Amlin Challenge Cup quarter-final. Stuart Lancaster will surely snap him up for England’s tour to Argentina.CentresA late addition to the rumour mill was Billy Twelvetrees, who impressed on his England debut against Scotland during this year’s Six Nations. While Twelvetrees’s creativity put him in the frame, his international centre partner Brad Barritt and Scotland’s Matt Scott ticked the defence boxes. Given Perpignan fly-half James Hook‘s versatility – the Welshman can play ten, 12, 13 and 15 – he is very unlucky to miss out too.Half-backsThe big one. There was shock and disbelief from Jonny Wilkinson’s team-mates past and present, and the media world at his omission from the squad, only for Gatland to explain that it was the man himself who had turned down the chance to tour due to worries about his physical condition and his Toulon commitments.In the next berth, Conor Murray narrowly beat the speedy Danny Care in the race to the airport.Unlucky: Scotland prop Ryan Grant missed the cutProps Again, controversial. Matt Stevens’s experience and ability to play on both sides of the scrum pushed his name to the forefront, but Scotland fans will be angry that England new boy Mako Vunipola pipped Ryan Grant to the post. A relative newcomer to the Test scene, having made his Scotland debut last year, Grant will be disappointed that his dynamics around the park haven’t made bigger waves in Gatland’s eyes. On the other side of the scrum, 2009 tourist Euan Murray misses out as does technician Mike Ross.Hookers Rory Best is one of the more high-profile casualties of this squad, and has gone from potential Lions Test hooker to losing his plane ticket to Dylan Hartley. The Ulsterman has led Ireland and would’ve brought experience to the party, but Gatland hasn’t forgotten the way Hartley fronted up in Cardiff in the first game of the 2011 Six Nations.LocksJoe Launchbury has burst onto the England scene, and that’s where he’ll stay this summer. Did the drubbing in Wales harm his Lions chances? And what about Donnacha Ryan? Solid in the lineout, he’s run the show in Paul O’Connell’s absence. Scots Jim Hamilton and Nathan Hines also miss out, with Hamilton recently suffering an ankle injury. While Hines is still a force in Clermont, at 36 years old it’s time for youngsters to take their places.Down and out: England’s Chris RobshawFlankers The most competitive position, but this will be scant consolation for Chris Robshaw. He’s led club and country by example, winning plaudits from team-mates, fans and coaches, yet a Lions appearance is not to be this time. Similarly Kelly Brown and Ryan Jones captained Scotland and Wales respectively during the Six Nations. Elsewhere, the efforts of Peter O’Mahony and Tom Wood could have warranted their inclusion, while Steffon Armitage is shackled by his commitments to Toulon.No 8Johnnie Beattie has rediscovered his form in Montpellier this season, and his omission will further anger Scotland fans. England’s Ben Morgan missed the majority of the Six Nations through injury, but his carrying skills could have come in handy Down Under. Who have we missed out?

Richard September 18, 2020 at 6:10 pm InspirationBy Charles TowneImagine that you have a little girl. She is three years old, and adorable… an absolute joy, the apple of your eye, a precious gift from God.One day you are sitting in your favorite chair reading a book, and as you read you get a strange feeling that someone is watching you. You glance up, and there is your little girl standing in front of you. She is smiling as she stands there staring at you.She moves closer.You pretend to ignore her.How can you do that? Are you a heartless brute?She stands there holding her favorite doll in one little hand, and then she reaches out and puts her free hand on your knee.How can you resist that smile? Yes, go ahead. Admit it, You are a heartless brute!She whispers, “Daddy.”You continue to ignore her. You are worse than a brute.She bends down so she is able to look up from under your book into your face.You continue to ignore her.She continues to stand there… but slowly that cute little smile, that smile that you love so much, begins to fade, and it is replaced by a scowl. She lays her doll in your lap and begins to make faces at you.How can you ignore her?She sticks two fingers in her nose and squinches up her eyes as she continues to look up into your face. Then she sticks out her tongue at you, and believe it or not, she makes a little fist and frowning – and with all the angst and frustration she can muster – she strikes your book! Yes she did, she actually struck your book!And then she exclaims in her little girl voice, “Daddy, do you love your book more than you love me?”Well, you might be a brute but you aren’t dead!You lay your book down, pick your precious little girl up, and spent the next hour assuringher of your love as that beautiful little smile returns to her face.You know, Papa God never plays games with you like that, and I am sure you wouldn’t either. And He doesn’t ignore you, or pretend that He doesn’t see you, because He loves you so very much, and He is smiling at you right now. Yes, He loves you more than you can imagine, and lot more than any old book!Charles Towne is first and foremost a Christian. An octogenarian, author, journalist, wildlife photographer, naturalist, caregiver, and survivor, his life has been and continues to be, a never-ending adventure filled with possibilities never imagined.

The brief required the construction of a single family house on a site within a saturated residential quarter in the outskirts of Reykjavik. The area is located on the Arnarnes peninsula of Gardabaer a town of 8,000 inhabitants some 10 km from the capital Reykjavik. Save this picture!© Åke E:son LindmanThe site is facing south to the Blikanes St. with a limited view to the sea across the presidential residence Bessastaðir. The composition is two basic boxes layed out as to create an area of quietness within the complex. The void assimilates adjacent spaces and is generated with bare walls and a flow of indirect daylight from a 6 meters long sky window facing north. The two boxes are clusters of containers and house the living wing to the street and thr sleeping wing set to the back of the site. The atmosphere throughout the house is primarily obtained by the emptyness between the two boxes and the movements from container to container through that space. The flow of spaces is further enhanced by the continuous surfaces attained by the layering of openings contra massive heavy barriers. Frameless openings encourage views from one space to another. The entrance is a two story high space linked directly to the void connecting the two volumens. Kitchen, dining and living is a one and a half story high space with a huge corner window as the focus point capturing the view to the sea. The private wing is two story high housing the bedrooms and sanitarie spaces on the upper floor and a service and house keeper quarter on the lover one.

He said:“#GivingTuesday is a great opportunity to put charitable giving at the top of the agenda in the run up to Christmas but we wanted to do something that would mean that the generosity of employees had a lasting effect. By encouraging employees to sign up to Workplace Giving rather than giving a one off donation not only will the charities of their choice receive donations as tax effectively and seamlessly as possible but employees also continue to give for an average of 8 years via their pay”.He pointed out that a £10 a month donation from a higher rate tax payer could be worth over £1,600 to the charity over the lifetime of their giving (£10 net becomes £16.67 gross to charity, which over eight years totals £1,600.32).

Reyot, a young woman columnist, is in very poor health, while Wubeshet, the deputy editor of a weekly, says he has been mistreated.“The situation of both of these journalists is alarming,” the letter to the prime minister says. “We were very disturbed to learn that their pre-trial detention was extended yet again and we call for their immediate release.“We also believe that Mr. Wubeshet’s claims should be taken seriously and we urge the Ethiopian authorities to carry out a thorough and independent investigation with the aim of establishing whether he has indeed been mistreated while in detention. If he has, those responsible should be brought to justice and reprimanded accordingly. We would like to remind you that you have a duty to ensure that detainees are treated humanely, have access to medical care and enjoy all the rights that the Ethiopian Constitution guarantees them.”When they were brought before a judge on 17 August, their pre-trial detention was extended for another 28 days. Accused of complicity with a political group that has been classified as a “terrorist” organization, they are due to appear in court again on 8 or 9 September.The deputy editor of the Awramba Times weekly, Wubeshet was arrested on 19 June. When he appeared before a federal court two months later, he said he was beaten during interrogation and was manhandled by prison officials. He was also forbidden to receive visits from his family and to organize his defence with his lawyer.Reyot, a columnist for the Amharic-language weekly Fitih, was arrested on 21 June. The equipment and material that was seized at the time of her arrest was finally returned to her family a few days ago. The few visitors that have been allowed to see her are worried by the rapid deterioration in her health. After two months in detention, this young woman is showing signs of physical and psychological trauma. Although her family has been able to send her medicine, she is in urgent need of proper medical attention.More information Journalist attacked, threatened in her Addis Ababa home
