Harvey Jones | Wednesday, 15th April, 2020 Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. After the stock market crash, there are cheap FTSE 100 stocks everywhere you look. Some major companies have been mothballed. Many have cut their dividends until further notice. Others have pulled their profit forecasts, as worthless. I’ve never known anything like it. Nobody has.These are unnerving times, as millions lose their jobs and see their financial plans shattered. However, the share price crash could also be an opportunity for investors to scour the FTSE 100 for bargain stocks. Buying today could help you get rich and retire early.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…You have to be brave to buy cheap FTSE 100 stocks, even at today’s low prices. However, history shows that, in the longer run, you’ll be rewarded for showing courage today.Cheap FTSE 100 stocks galoreI’m old enough to remember Black Monday in 1987, the dot.com bust in 2000, and financial crisis in 2008. I remember how desperate investors felt at the time, as they watched the value of their portfolios plunge in the stock market crash.The opportunity to buy cheap FTSE 100 stocks didn’t last long. On every occasion, the market recovered, often with surprising speed. After the bear market, a lucrative bull run generally followed.Those who bought at the bottom of the stock market crash, when most investors were feeling too nervous to invest, got in ahead of the recovery. They were the ones who made serious money, by picking up cheap FTSE 100 stocks, before they started to become a lot more expensive. While the recovery may be slow and uneven, I believe we have a similar buying opportunity today.Stock market crash is an opportunityIf you want to build a big enough investment portfolio to help you retire early, then you don’t want to miss this chance. You have a brand-new Stocks and Shares ISA allowance, and can invest anything up to £20k in the months ahead.By loading it up with cheap FTSE 100 stocks at today’s bargain prices, then simply leaving them for the long term, you could accelerate your plans to retire early. That’s what I’m doing, whenever I have money to spare.You could simply buy a FTSE 100 tracker, as I have, or go searching for FTSE 100 bargains. Oil majors BP and Royal Dutch Shell could tempt at today’s super-low valuations. If you want solid dividends, tobacco manufacturers British American Tobacco and Imperial Brands are potential picks.Get rich and retire earlyCheap FTSE 100 stocks, such as spirits maker Diageo, pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline, and household goods specialist Unilever all look tempting at today’s bargain prices too.These are just a few suggestions. After the stock market crash, the index is jammed full of cheap FTSE 100 stocks.

We envisaged creating architecture that breathes and one that embodies the same characteristics as that of a tree in nature to architecture through this group housing project. Goa has had a deep global influence of more than 400 years over its art, architecture and culture out of which evolved a genesis of vernacular styles with a backdrop of innovative materials through trade, the history of which is honoured through this project comprising of six identical villas.Save this picture!SectionThe visitor is greeted by a lightweight steel structure atop which sits an I.P.S. (Indian Patent stone) structure which envelopes a down to earth material palette comprising of terracotta bricks and various green hues of tropical plants. The use of planters placed at every floor, renders a sense of belonging to every resident and strengthens the idea that the structure should be dramatic and yet be deeply rooted to nature like a tree.Save this picture!© Prashant BhatThe villas are planned in such a way that a green offset comprising of tropical plants is created on the side as well as rear with a large open to sky courtyard in the centre which is the main spine consisting of paths that lead to the ‘balçao’ or entrance porch of each villa.This spine is envisioned into three areas, the entrance or the ‘Padmasana’ court, the central or the ‘Living Pavilion’ court and the ‘Rear court’. The empty throne shrine lets the viewer formulate his or her own individual understanding of supreme power.Save this picture!© Prashant BhatThe ‘Living Pavilion’ is synthesized around elements of a tree with the wooden columns acting as the main trunk upon which a plethora of plants represent the foliage. The emphasis of the pavilion is on the micro details and the use of contrasting materials and surfaces like the hand chiselled granite pedestal base, the wooden columns, I.P.S. and wooden louvers bound around the transparent lotus pond. The cultural influence of Goa with its hundreds of years of rituals and customs are represented by terracotta handmade sculptures or grotesque Gargoyles acting as water spouts.Save this picture!Planter SectionThe ‘Golden ratio sculpture’ dominates the rear court with a wooden figure with arms wide open placed within a handmade relief brass ring over two exposed cement walls, one in yellow ochre and the other in Yves Klein blue colour placed one behind the other.The villas themselves are designed in such a way that nothing is indoors. The large sliding glass windows connect the central courtyard to the green backyard of the villas. The ‘balçao’ or the entrance porch acts as a transition space between the living-dining area and the central courtyard.Save this picture!© Prashant BhatThe brick work is custom designed in such a way that each brick offsets from the next in open work pattern, wrapping the walls in a permeable blanket that creates dappled daylight in particular spaces and, at night, when all the lights are on inside, the building will be seen from the streets like a glowing lattice work.Urban Alchemy 9 is a social experiment by which we tried to capture the essence of Goa by trying to strike the perfect balance between functionality, design, history, culture and most importantly nature.Save this picture!© Prashant BhatProject gallerySee allShow lessIvanhoe Extension / ModscapeSelected ProjectsWuyuan Rd.

Scotland rejects Fundraising Regulator for stronger self-regulation

first_imgScotland rejects Fundraising Regulator for stronger self-regulation AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis9  94 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis9 The Fundraising Regulator will not have a role in Scotland when it opens for business this week, with Scottish charities opting for enhanced self-regulation instead.A new independent panel comprising members of the public, donors, charities, fundraisers, OSCR and the Scottish Government, will be convened to develop a set of standards for all charities that set a higher bar for fundraising in Scotland.A new Freephone fundraising complaints line and website will also be set up to provide guidance to members of the public on how to raise complaints.The move follows an extensive period of consultation with the third sector in Scotland and the public, led by the Scottish Fundraising Working Group. This was convened by the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO) earlier this year to find a solution to the need for a new system of fundraising self-regulation identified in the SCVO’s review of fundraising regulation in Scotland, reported in the autumn of 2015.The Working Group presented three potential options for the future of charity fundraising in Scotland in its consultation with industry professionals and the public:1) Adopting the UK-wide Fundraising Regulator as an intermediary between the public and charities.2) Setting up a new Scottish Fundraising Regulator as an intermediary.3) No intermediary: charities in Scotland and OSCR take on an enhanced role in regulating fundraising.The consultation identified resounding support for option three. As a result, The Working Group has recommended this option to the Scottish Government as the model that should be followed, with the further recommendation that the regulation of cross-border charities uses a lead regulator model. This recognises that charities operating in Scotland but registered in England, Wales and Northern Ireland are answerable to the Fundraising Regulator, which replaces the Fundraising Standards Board on 7th July.Cabinet Secretary for Communities, Social Security and Equalities Angela Constance said:“The Scottish Government welcomes this report. The extensive consultation that has been carried out indicates the clear support to continue with self-regulation of charity fundraising. What is needed is a more robust approach which is easier for everyone to understand and encourages charities to adhere to good fundraising practice, which is why we welcome the proposal to introduce a new online and phone complaints approach so that everyone in Scotland knows who to contact and be informed of what to do if they have a complaint about charity. We will consider and respond to the rest of the recommendations in due course.”  93 total views,  1 views today Advertisement Melanie May | 4 July 2016 | News Tagged with: regulation Scotland About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

One Year After First Reported COVID-19 Death in Wuhan, Pasadena Sees 8 Local Fatalities in a Single Day

first_img Make a comment 18 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it One day after the anniversary of the world’s first reported death caused by COVID-19 in Wuhan, China, Pasadena added eight more people to the city’s coronavirus death toll.Three of the recent deaths involved residents of care facilities, but the other five did not, said city Public Information Officer Lisa Derderian.Tuesday’s numbers represented the most COVID-19 deaths seen in Pasadena since Dec. 31, when a record 10 fatalities were reported, according to city data. Tuesday tied with April 30 as the second-deadliest day of the pandemic.195 new infections were announced by Pasadena health authorities.The city saw its largest single-day tally of new infections on Jan. 5, when 253 cases of the virus were detected.All told, Pasadena has documented 184 deaths and 8,708 infections.Huntington Hospital reported handling 207 COVID-19 patients on Tuesday, including 44 who were being treated in intensive care units.Los Angeles County public health officials reported 11,994 new infections and 288 additional deaths on Tuesday.In all, the county has recorded a total of 944,319 cases of COVID-19 and 12,674 deaths, according to the L.A. County Department of Public Health.“The county is experiencing horrific loss of life due to COVID-19,” the agency said in a written statement. “Over the last seven days, 1,606 people lost their lives and this is an average of nearly 230 deaths per day.”Just more than 7,900 COVID-19 patients were hospitalized in the county as of Tuesday, with 22% of them being treated in ICUs, according to the county statement. “While the number of people hospitalized with COVID-19 each day has stabilized over the last few days at slightly under 8,000 patients, the demand on our healthcare system and hospitals remains overwhelming.”L.A. County’s overall positivity rate climbed to 18%, with over 5 million tests administered, officials said.Once again, L.A. County Director of Public Health Barbara Ferrer implored people to alter their behavior to stem the spread.“Please do not underestimate this virus or let your drive to interact in person with friends outweigh following the safety measures that are put in place to save lives,” she said.“Like many residents, I am cheering for the Rams in the playoffs and grateful to be able to watch basketball games again, but we cannot make the same mistakes we did last year,” Ferrer added. “There were far too many gatherings, viewing parties, and celebrations with others that contributed to increased cases; the outcome will be disastrous to our healthcare system if we don’t follow the rules.”The state reached a grim milestone as 548 fatalities pushed the statewide death toll to 40,513, according to the California Department of Public Health.State officials also reported 36,487new infections on Tuesday, raising the total to 2,747,388.The state’s average positivity rate over the prior 14 days reached 13.5%.As of Tuesday, L.A. County accounted for 34% of California COVID-19 infections and 42% of the state’s deaths.

This is, in turn, is affecting their ability to repay loans. According to the latest estimates, around 800,000 workers are either on furlough or required to work without pay. This includes employees of federal institutions like the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development as well as the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).Federal Contractors Losing OutOn Friday, FEMA posted a stop work order that is likely to impact many open contracts. According to the Washington Post, in a note to federal contractors Bobby McCane, Head of FEMA’s Contracting Activity said, “Any work done after the receipt of this notice is at your own risk and will not be reimbursed. I thank you for your assistance during this funding lapse.”While many of the contractors affected by the FEMA shutdown are deep-pocketed tech companies and large government services firms such as AT&T and IBM, the Post said that small businesses and contractors were feeling the shutdown more sharply as they relied on these contracts to provide a large portion of their annual revenue.Effect on BorrowersThe effects of the shutdown are now being felt on the housing market too as banks and credit unions announce assistance programs to help affected borrowers working in the government to tackle loan repayments. For example, Wells Fargo has said that it will work with “individuals and business banking customers whose income is disrupted as a result of the shutdown.” Additionally, the bank has said that it has set up phone lines to help mortgage, loan, and credit customers who might qualify for forbearance or other payment assistance programs based on their individual circumstances.Chase has also offered hardship programs to customers who have been affected by financial strain, unemployment, or natural disasters. The bank has said that it will automatically waive or refund overdraft and monthly service fees on Chase checking and savings accounts if an employee’s salary from an affected federal agency was direct-deposited into the account in November 2018.“We’re here for our government worker customers whose pay may be disrupted,”  said Thasunda Duckett, CEO of Consumer Banking at Chase.  “We all hope this will be resolved soon.” Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Previous: Ups and Downs in Home Flips Next: Foreclosures in the Big Apple Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Subscribe About Author: Radhika Ojhalast_img read more

Arts students to make can sculpture for Johnson Center grand opening

first_imgLatest Stories “We’ll use shelving of plyboard that we’ll shape with a scroll saw and the cans should stack rather easily,” Skaggs said. “If we have to do some banding to keep them together, we’ll do that. And, we’re going to have to figure out some way to put the U.S. Postal Service logo on the sculpture.”The plans are to also incorporate a video into the design.“The idea is to have a video behind the mailbox that shows people walking,” Skaggs said. “That should add some interest. And, if we have enough cans donated, we might do an impromptu sculpture.”The mail drop box sculpture will be on display Sunday in the Cultural Arts Studio across from the Johnson Center for the Arts.Visitors to the Studio are encouraged to bring a canned food item which will be donated to the local food bank.Entertainment at the Studio will be presented by the choirs of First Baptist Church and First United Methodist Church of Troy following the Grand Opening Ceremony for the Johnson Center for the Arts at 2 p.m. Sunday.Everyone is invited to visit the Studio and enjoy all of the activities of the day.
