How I’d invest £10,000 today in cheap UK shares Investing money in cheap UK shares could provide an investor with a surprisingly large portfolio in the long run.Of course, risks such as Brexit and the coronavirus pandemic may hold back the prospects for FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 stocks in the short run.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 investing £10k, or any other amount, in a range of high-quality companies while they trade at low prices, an investor could benefit from a likely stock market recovery.Buying high-quality cheap UK sharesThe stock market crash means there are currently a wide range of cheap UK shares in a variety of sectors. However, some companies are likely to offer stronger prospects than others. For example, businesses with solid finances are likely to equate to less risk. Especially during what could be a large economic downturn that persists for a number of months. Similarly, companies with a clear competitive advantage may fare better than their peers as consumer confidence returns and operating conditions improve.As such, an investor may wish to target high-quality companies that trade at low prices. This doesn’t mean simply purchasing a random selection of cheap UK shares available after the stock market crash. Instead, it entails finding strong businesses that can deliver impressive financial performances over the long run. Then buying them while they offer a wide margin of safety.Diversifying after the stock market crashThe prospect of a second stock market crash may mean that some cheap UK shares experience severe difficulties over the short run. The future prospects of the economy are very unpredictable at present. Therefore, even if an investor finds high-quality companies at low prices, there’s always a risk that one or more of their holdings will produce poor returns.As such, building a diverse portfolio of British shares when investing money is likely to be of greater importance now than it has been for many years. A diverse portfolio equates to less risk. It also means there’s a wider range of growth opportunities available. And that can lead to more impressive returns over the long run.A long-term stock market recoveryThe prospects of a stock market recovery may seem remote for many cheap UK shares. After all, there are likely to be more difficulties ahead due to an uncertain economic and political outlook.However, the long-term performance of indexes such as the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 suggests that a sustained bull market is very likely to occur over the coming years. It’s set to produce new record highs, as per previous long-term bull markets. Therefore, having a long-term horizon when buying undervalued British shares may provide an investor with a significant advantage.It may enable them to capitalise on the stock market’s recovery potential and make significant capital returns from a diverse portfolio of cheap UK shares.

In urban areas of Vietnam, the same narrow-shaped houses stood side by side. This type of house faced the risk of lack of air and light because the sides are adjacent to others. Beside that, Hue is one of the places with the largest rainfall in Vietnam. Located in this climate, we create a way of “layering” on top of each other, creating a gap of ventilation and watertight like the way the carpenter makes louver doors. Based on that idea, here, we use two layering schemes, one is the glass shutters with the folding pattern wall in the facade and the other is the breeze blocks system in the backside.Save this picture!© Quang DamThe folding pattern wall in the façade blocks sunlight and helps the house to cope with the rainy in winter but still lets the air in and out smoothly. Not only that, these folds contribute to the shape of the building, making it special, prominent but still plain.Save this picture!© Quang DamSave this picture!Mezzanine Floor PlanSave this picture!© Quang DamThe breeze blocks wall in the backside brings air and light to the house, but also prevents effect of heat in summer and freezing rain in winter. This system combines with the sky light and glass door in façade ensures that the distribution of sunlight is enough during daytime. This breeze blocks wall forms ventilation and air convection for the house.Save this picture!© Quang DamSave this picture!Facade DiagramSave this picture!© Quang DamBy taking advantage of the skylight and ventilation system at back side, we plant the in-house garden right after the breeze blocks wall to create green layer for the house. This garden acts as a natural air conditioning, making the air cooler and cleaner before going inside the house as well as reducing the heat caused by solar radiation. This garden also provides open green view from bedrooms and bathrooms, gives the homeowners a relaxing, feeling immersed in nature. Besides, a green carpet grass is planted on 2nd floor balcony. This is where young parent, the homeowners can spend quality time with their little child.

Patterson ‘hurt’ by Listenbee lawsuit, looks forward to telling his side of the story

first_imgReddIt Boschini talks: construction, parking, tuition, enrollment, DEI, a student trustee The College of Science and Engineering Dean, Phil Hartman, retires after 40 consecutive years Twitter Gary Patterson looks out onto the field as the team prepares to jog onto the field. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto printTCU head coach Gary Patterson denied charges made against him in the lawsuit former TCU wide receiver Kolby Listenbee filed against Patterson, the university and the Big 12 Conference, professing a pattern of abuse and harassment in which the university responded with a filing for declaratory relief.“I’ve been here 21 years, over 400 players have played here, and the bottom line to it is it’s always been about the program, never been about winning,” Patterson said. “Winning is important but not over somebody’s health.”Patterson also spoke to the number of players who have played under him who haven’t expressed a problem.“On our campus, we have always said to recruits that it’s about the 40 years after you graduate, not the four that you’re here,” Patterson said. “Our seniors that were here in 1998 are now 42, 43 years old, and there’s a lot of testimonies of guys that have had great experiences here of growing up and doing things.”Many thought during his National Signing Day press conference Feb. 7, Patterson would address the lawsuit, however, Patterson said he had a root canal that needed immediate attention. This was met with skepticism by some who thought the timing of the procedure was to avoid questions on the lawsuit. Patterson said he wanted to let people know that was not the case.“For me, we had Signing Day and I had a root canal for three weeks that I couldn’t get taken care of because I was on the road recruiting,” he said.”You should have seen what it looked like when they dug into it, it exploded with infection. I still haven’t gotten it fixed because you have to wait two or three weeks to get it done.”Listenbee’s suit, which added five more former players’ accounts of malpractice by Patterson and his program, mentioned specifically the way the doctors were pressured into clearing players. Patterson disagreed with the account.“We felt like since I’ve been here that our outside doctors and our staff has always been unbelievable when dealing with our student-athletes,” Patterson said. “Our outside doctors decide these things: they say they’re released or if they say they can’t play, they can’t play, and if they say they can, it comes down to the student-athlete and they decide. Every student-athlete is different, and we’ve never changed that philosophy.”Patterson said it bothered him that the lawsuit paints him as someone who doesn’t care about his players.“I was little bit hurt because with 36 years in coaching and everything I’ve put into it has been for the kids to grow them up and give them an opportunity,” he said. “A college’s job is not to make the NFL, it’s our job to prepare them so they have an opportunity, simple as that.”Patterson said that ultimately his job is to give people opportunities that they couldn’t get on their own.“There’s a lot of people who are successful on and off the football field because of the job we’ve done here,” he said.TCU head coach Gary Patterson leads his team through its second practice of the spring. (Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto.)When asked if questions have come up from players or parents on the recruiting trail, Patterson said, “no, not one.”“High school coaches know us too with 36 years in coaching and 21 years here, they work with us, and we already have five commitments,” Patterson said. “Kids know us. The people that come here talk about family atmosphere. Our players show recruits around and show them family atmosphere. Players recruit recruits. It’s not coaches. Kids want to play with kids to be part of a program.”In Listenbee’s lawsuit, Patterson is labeled a bully. He dismissed that claim, stating that he’s “a winner.”Ultimately, the head coach said he would get “his day” to tell his side of the story.However, in legal battles, sometimes settlements occur and everyone doesn’t get to tell their side of the story, but Patterson isn’t worried about that.“Bottom line is I’ll know,” Patterson said. “It’s not about what you guys think, it’s about what I know.”Patterson said he had “no idea” when the legal battle will end, but he’s instead looking forward to what’s next for his Horned Frog team.“The key for us is you need recruit a 2019 class,” Patterson said. “We have 15 spring practices, so you know everything about what you have and then you go about your life.”As for if Patterson would eventually sit down with Listenbee and the other players listed in the suit, he had a simple response.“There will be a day,” Patterson said. “Go Frogs.” ReddIt Garrett Podellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/garrett-podell/ Previous articleNo. 3 Baseball earns third consecutive series win, collapses in Sunday’s ‘horrible defeat’Next articleFaculty Senate votes to create task force on adjunct issues Garrett Podell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Twitter Facebook + posts World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history center_img Listen: The Podell and Pickell Show with L.J.

Registration of bloggers not being considered, says prime minister

first_img———–Create your blog with Reporters Without Borders : www.rsfblog.org News MalaysiaAsia – Pacific New Malaysian ordinance threatens very concept of truth January 29, 2021 Find out more Prime minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi yesterday contradicted a statement by his energy, water and communications minister and said it was not necessary to ask bloggers to register with the authorities.Existing laws were sufficient to deter them from posting illegal content, he said, and compulsory registration would simply drive them to use servers based outside the country.—————————————06.04.07 – Government plans to force bloggers to registerReporters Without Borders voiced concern today about a statement by the deputy minister of energy, water and communications, Datuk Shaziman Abu Mansor, on 4 April that, in order to prevent the spread of “negative or malicious content,” bloggers will soon have to register with the government.While claiming they do not intend to censor bloggers, they have warned that bloggers are not above the law when they “disturb peace and harmony” in Malaysia.“This measure could jeopardise online free expression,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It could push many bloggers to opt for anonymity or censor themselves out of fear of reprisals. The deputy minister’s statement once again demonstrates the government’s desire to exercise improper control over the online flow of information inside Malaysia. The obligatory registering of blogs is a measure that so far has only been adopted by countries such as China that violate Internet users’ rights.”The political parties and the government control most of the media in Malaysia. The most popular blogs serve as a counter-weight, offering political comment that is often critical of the government. Science and technology minister Kong Cho Ha said on 4 December that he wanted to “create strict laws to control abuses on the Internet” and to dissuade “bloggers from advocating disorder and chaos in society.”On 19 January, Reporters Without Borders took up the cause of two Malaysian bloggers who are the target of libel suits by members of the staff of the New Straits Times, a Malaysian newspaper. Jeff Ooi, who writes one of the country’s most popular blogs, Screenshots, has been sued for refusing to take down 13 posts which the newspaper’s staffers consider to be defamatory. Ahiruddin Attan, who produces a blog called Rockybru, says he is being sued over a post in which he accused some of the newspaper’s journalists of being agents of the Singaporean government.

Concern about prosecutor’s comments as he announces 10 arrests in Politkovskaya murder

first_img RSF_en June 2, 2021 Find out more May 27, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Belarus “We welcome opening of criminal investigation in Lithuania in response to our complaint against Lukashenko” RSF says Читать на русскомThe arrests, announced today, of 10 people including interior ministry and FSB (security service) officials for last October’s murder of journalist Anna Politkovskaya have taken nearly a year and are the first concrete sign of progress in the case, although, according to Vladimir Putin in December, it has been assigned “the best police and judicial professionals,” Reporters Without Borders said.“We hope this announcement has not been made solely to defuse the protests of NGOs and questions from journalists who want the case solved,” the press freedom organisation said. “We have in the past seen announcements by the Russian authorities that have been made just for effect. And most of the investigations into the murders of journalists have never been concluded.”Reporters Without Borders continued: “We are concerned that unnamed persons ‘outside Russia’ have been identified as the masterminds of Politkovskaya’s murder. Contrary to what the prosecutor-general says, there were people inside the country interested in silencing her and the investigation should be looking into this.”The organisation also regretted that the identity and motives of the suspects are still unknown. “The confidentiality of the investigation and the presumption of innocence are essential but it is important that we should be able to obtain more information quickly and it is perhaps also time that a trial date is set.”Today’s announcement of the arrest of 10 suspects was made by prosecutor-general Yuri Chaika, who claimed that Politkovskaya’s murder was carried out by a group led by “the head of a Moscow crime ring of Chechen origin” that included former and current interior ministry and FSB officials.Four days ago, the head of the Russian commission that was set up specially to investigate the murder, Alexandre Bastrykin, said “six versions of the Anna Politkovskaya murder are being examined” and “good prospects are emerging that it will solved.”At a news conference today, Chaika said persons based “outside Russia” who wanted to “destabilise the country” were behind her murder. “As regards the murder’s motives, the results of the investigation (…) lead us to the conclusion that the persons who had an interest in eliminating Politkovskaya could only live outside Russia,” he said.Politkovskaya, who wrote extensively about human rights violations in the northern Caucasus for the newspaper Novaya Gazeta, was gunned down in her central Moscow apartment building on 7 October 2006. She told the BBC shortly before her death that President Putin had deliberated provoked terrorist acts, including the hostage-taking in a Moscow theatre in 2002. Her murder, which was widely condemned internationally, highlighted the dangers that opposition journalists face in Russia.

PATS director addresses Rotary Club

first_img Next UpDonta Frazier, PATS director, was the program guest of Rotarian Harry Sanders at the Rotary Club’s Wednesday meeting and enlightened the Rotarians on the “blessing” that PATS is to so many people.Frazier started as PATS director in 2007 when Pike County’s governing officials realized the need for a county-wide transportation system.“When Hurricane Katrina hit, a lot of evacuees came to Pike County and we had no transportation system available for them,” Frazier said. “That’s when our elected officials in Troy, Brundidge and on the county commission realized we needed some kind of public transportation. I was working for the City of Troy, and Mayor Jimmy Lunsford called me in and asked if I would be in charge of starting a transportation system in Pike County.” Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

I can’t imagine what that would be like.”On behalf of all those who are served by PATS, Frazier expressed appreciation to Brundidge, Troy and the Pike County Commission for providing the local match in support of the grant.“PATS is a much needed and greatly appreciated public service that the cities and the county commission provide for our citizens,” he said. “We depend on this local support to help PATS stay on the road.” By Secrets Revealed Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Frazier said he didn’t have a clue about starting a transportation system but said, “Let’s go. Let’s try.”For three months, he traveled the state from Mobile to Huntsville in an effort to see how different public transit systems were operated and to determine which kind of system would be best for Pike County.Frazier put together a plan for a public transportation system in Pike County. The plan received a grant from the Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) with the local match for the grant coming from the municipalities of Troy and Brundidge and the Pike County Commission.“In 2008, PATS started operation with three vans, three drivers, a dispatcher and me,” Frazier said. “Today, we have nine vans, nine drivers, a dispatcher, an operations manager and me. Six of the nine vans run every day. The other three, we keep for backup.” PATS Director Donta Frazier, right, was the program guest of Rotarian Harry Sanders at the Wednesday meeting of the Brundidge Rotary Club.
