Here at The Motley Fool, we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. As a value investor, I aim to buy into good businesses at sensible prices. As US fund manager Peter Lynch remarked, “A share is not a lottery ticket. It’s part-ownership of a business.” Today, I think the UK FTSE 100 offers outstanding relative value. In particular, big Footsie companies paying chunky dividends look under-priced to me. However, when day traders play the market like a lottery, I fear market bubbles and worry about a possible stock market crash. Looking at today’s frothy prices, can the 12-year bull market in US stocks continue much longer? Alas, when the US market sneezes, UK shares catch a cold. Here are two warning signs that worry me today.1. Stock market crash? The US tech bubble deflatesIn the dotcom boom and stock market crash, I watched the Nasdaq tech index soar above 5,000 points in March 2000. I also recall its subsequent collapse, crashing by almost four-fifths to nearly 1,100 in October 2002. It then took 15 years for the Nasdaq to get back above 5,000 points.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…Some view today’s Nasdaq as bubbly, and a possible trigger for a global stock market crash that pulls down UK shares. The index has soared since 2016, rising 28.2% in 2017, 35.2% in 2019, and 43.6% in Covid-hit 2020. Its only down year was 2018, declining 3.9%. On 16 February, the Nasdaq peaked at 14,175 points. Yesterday, it closed at 13,119, down over 1,050 points (7.5%) in nine days. Though this bubble has let out a little air, US tech stocks remain richly priced. If the Nasdaq declines further, this could be bad news for shareholders worldwide.2. UK and US bond yields are risingSome pundits claim there won’t be a stock market crash, because dividend yields look attractive versus bond yields. The problem with arguing that stocks are attractively priced compared to bonds is that the bond market has enjoyed a 40-year bull market. With top-rated bonds offering zero or negative yields, perhaps the bond market is another bubble?Like US tech stocks, a little air just escaped from the bond bubble. Since 10 February, the 10-year US Treasury yield has surged from 1.13% to 1.61%, its highest level in a year. Likewise, the UK 10-year Gilt yield today hit its highest level since July 2019. If borrowing rates keep rising, this might trigger a stock market crash, as has happened before.It depends on inflationBond yields are creeping up because investors worry about higher inflation. If inflation stays subdued, as it has since 2011, then bond yields should drop back. This would make equities appear more attractive, support share prices, and perhaps ward off a stock market crash. If inflation remains under control, that’s great news for British shareholders. Prices might even climb higher from here. But if inflation rears its ugly head, then things could turn nasty for the UK and US stock markets.I could be wrong. I don’t want a stock market crash to happen, not least because my portfolio’s 12-month returns have been excellent. But I think the best place to invest today isn’t in richly priced US stocks. When buying prices are so high, this depresses future returns. Happily, the UK stock market is trading at levels relative to the US rarely seen in 50 years. I see the FTSE 100’s big beasts as offering outstanding value for patient investors. That’s why I’m buying cheap UK shares in 2021 and I’ll buy more if a crash comes!center_img Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

I’ve been bearish on Boohoo (LSE: BOO) shares for sometime. And the stock hasn’t delivered great returns in 2021 so far. It’s down almost 5% since the beginning of the year. The shares have fallen over 20% in the last 12 months.So is this a buying opportunity? I’m not convinced it is and so I’ll only be watching the stock closely for the time being. But Boohoo released a trading update earlier this week, at which I think it’s worth taking a closer look.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…Trading updateIn the three months to the end of May, the company delivered a 32% increase in total sales to £486.1m. A lot of this performance was generated from the US and UK.During the period, Boohoo managed to integrate and relaunch the brands it purchased in the pandemic. These include, Dorothy Perkins, Wallis and Burton. It also relaunched Debenhams for fashion, beauty and homewares. And it has “an exciting pipeline of brands” for its digital department store.This all sounds great. The easing of lockdown restrictions especially in the UK has continued to boost sales. Clearly customers are still buying clothes to go out and embrace their new-found social lives after lockdown.Boohoo now has a larger portfolio of brands as it snapped up some of the pandemic’s high-street victims. This has served the online retailer well as it gives its customers more choice.The outlookThe company has maintained its forward guidance. It expects the year ending 28 February 2022 to see “revenue growth of around 25% and adjusted EBITDA margins to be in the region of 9.5-10%”.Its medium-term guidance also remains unchanged. Boohoo believes it can deliver “25% sales growth per annum and a 10% adjusted EBITDA margin”.To me, the fact that it expects to generates these kind of figures is good. But I think Boohoo is setting the bar high for sales growth and is making life difficult for itself. In my opinion, if investors believe that it can always smash expectations, that sets it up to disappoint.I’m not dismissing the company’s growth. It’s strong, but clearly not enough for Boohoo to raise earnings guidance. The market has probably seen this as a disappointment and that’s why the shares haven’t rallied after the announcement.My concernsI still don’t think the company has repaired its reputation after the Leicester supply chain scandal. Boohoo did publish its UK supplier list in March and it remains on track to announce the names of its global suppliers in September.But I don’t think this is enough yet. And judging by the poor share price performance, I don’t think the market is convinced either. I can’t help but worry if the firm has more skeletons in its closet.Rectifying its reputation is a work in progress and may continue to place pressure on Boohoo shares. The company is starting to be more transparent, but this will take time. For now, I’m not ready to dip my toe in and so, as I said, I’ll only be watching the stock.

Photo: Emmanuel Chikoya[Anglican Communion News Service] The Anglican Church in Zambia has welcomed the news that the country’s tourist capital Livingstone has partnered with the International Labour Organisation (ILO) to fight child trafficking and child labor there.“Being a border town, Livingstone is a fertile ground for human trafficking,” said the Rev. Emmanuel Chikoya, Livingstone West parish priest. “Just recently 32 children were almost trafficked into a neighboring country and members of the church were among those that exposed the incident.”The city of Livingstone is preparing to co-host the United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) General Assembly in August this year. Chikoya has urged his parishioners to be vigilant as some visitors may take advantage of the event as an avenue for human trafficking.“The fact that international delegates will be flocking to Livingstone…creates a perfect environment for people to be trafficked, especially for sexual services and any other forms of cheap labor,” he said. “When people notice unusual numbers of children in their neighborhood, they should question such occurrences. Let them take interest especially when they see somebody who is nervous and uneasy as this could be a case of human trafficking.”Through their social arm, the Livingstone Anglican Children’s Project (LACP), the Anglican Church has also been outspoken and active in trying to identify and prevent all forms of child labor.Chikoya, who is also the project’s director, said cases of human trafficking and forced labor were real and anyone can be trafficked either by force or coercion, or by being enticed by promises of better prospects.“So far we have withdrawn 300 children from child labor and about 400 children who are at risk of child labor,” revealed Chikoya. “Human trafficking and child labor are intertwined, hence the need to tackle them together.”Chikoya said that there are many forms of child labor, some of which may seem innocent and normal. “Some children are used to leading their handicapped parents, to prostitution, street vending, scavenging for empty water bottles for recycling and many others,” he revealed.“Withdrawing these kids from such activities also means that we need to deal with the issues of sustainability since for many, this is their source of income for them and their parents,” he said. “Therefore, we have also tried to empower their parents with basic income generating activities to help supplement their resources.”Chikoya concluded by emphasizing the need to involve children and women in any efforts of trying to curb child labor and human trafficking. “Since women and children are the worst hit in issues of human trafficking and child labor, there is need to actively involve them when carrying out sensitization programs”.He added, “Fighting human trafficking and forced labor requires the co-operation and support from everyone, including members of the community.” Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Tags Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Featured Events Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Youth Minister Lorton, VA Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Rector Collierville, TN AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Rector Knoxville, TN Africa, Submit a Job Listing Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Rector Pittsburgh, PA Press Release Service Rector Martinsville, VA Human Trafficking Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Director of Music Morristown, NJ Submit an Event Listing Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

K Harrison Estate / SchappacherWhite Photographs:  Javier HaddadText description provided by the architects. Atop a hill on Long Island removed from the fog of the shoreline, architect Wallace K. Harrison in the early 1930s purchased land to design a house for his wife and himself. However, after the purchase of the land, the young architect had inadequate funds to pay for construction. Then, while touring the annual Architectural League show in Grand Central Palace, he paid around $1000 for what many consider the first prefab home, the Aluminaire House designed by A. Lawrence Kocher and Albert Frey. In 1931, Harrison designed what he considered a summer-use extension to the “Tin House” adding a series of circles, “an exercise in how to fit circles together”.

The Harrison Estate, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, represents the leading edge of the International Style. It has now undergone a complete restoration and expansion, designed by SchappacherWhite Ltd., that honors Harrison’s original design intent while satisfying the needs of a 21st century family. The Harrison Estate was a laboratory for ideas Harrison expressed in his architecture. The home’s signature element, the circle, is found in the forms of the living room, small former dining room, pool, and even concrete pavers used for walkways, all of which have been restored by SchappacherWhite. Spaces were winterized and built to today’s sustainable standards. The Harrison house was not only a place for architectural exploration, but also a home for many artists and a canvas for site-specific works. In 1942, Fernand Leger, escaping the war in Europe, came to the house and painted a canvas for the large round living room and also painted figurative swimmers on the bottom of the circular swimming pool. Existing and restored is the only remaining Leger artwork, a skylight located at the new dining room. Amongst the many artists and friends whom enjoyed the house were Alexander Calder, Marc Chagall, Mary Callery, Robert Moses, and Le Corbusier. Save this picture!© Javier HaddadA Mary Callery sculpture is found on the Living room wall adjacent the restored steel windows. In order to update the use as a full time family home, an expansion doubling the size of the original structure was designed by SchappacherWhite Ltd. The addition includes a two story steel framed glass wall that reflects the 16′-0″ high existing steel framed facetted windows in the round living room. The former kitchen was expanded with a 14′-3″ ceiling, a square in plan, and openings at two sides creating a fluid and open plan that matches the original architecture intentions. Save this picture!© Javier HaddadOriginal details were retained in the Modern spirit for the addition, cabinetry, hardware, and finishes. SchappacherWhite considered every detail so that the spirit of the house, even in areas that were completely redesigned, remains true to the original. The Harrison Estate has an important place in our country’s architectural history, providing a fascinating case study in how European Modernism came to the United States through Long Island as a gateway. The restoration and addition shows how contemporary residents are preserving a piece of history while living very much in the present.Project gallerySee allShow lessHappy 103rd Birthday Oscar NiemeyerArticlesAD Round Up: Libraries Part VIArticles Share ArchDaily United States CopyAbout this officeSchappacherWhiteOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentHousesUnited StatesPublished on December 15, 2010Cite: “Wallace.

Malta: Intensification of pressure against The Shift after founder was awarded RSF press freedom award

first_img Help by sharing this information June 2, 2021 Find out more MaltaEurope – Central Asia Protecting journalists CorruptionWomenImpunityFreedom of expressionEconomic pressureJudicial harassmentViolence to go further Organisation News Malta: Developments in murder case mark nascent steps towards justice for Daphne Caruana Galizia News News “The tactics used to whip up hate against Daphne Caruana Galizia to discredit and marginalise her continue to be repeated by those in power against all those who try to inform and establish the truth,” says Pauline Adès-Mével, the head of the EU-Balkan desk of Reporters Without Borders  (RSF).A Maltese judge, Giovanni Grixti, blocked an investigation into the actions of the three Ministers in the deal amid controversy, even stating that investigations by the press were insufficient evidence for an inquiry. The Judge defined the findings of press investigations as a “collection of opinions by journalists and bloggers who chose to join forces to expose as fact that the four suspects had devised a plan to award the hospitals’ contract to VGH, in order to benefit those involved in the deal”. “The Maltese government must understand the role of the press is not a concession granted to those who favour it, but a right upheld in any real democracy for journalists to hold power to account,” Mével-Adès added. The Council of Europe’s Special Rapporteur has stressed that an independent and impartial public inquiry was essential to stem the tide. He expressed doubts on whether the terms of reference and the members of the Board of Inquiry chosen by the Prime Minister could achieve justice. More than 30 threats to national and international media workers in Malta have been reported in Malta to press freedom watchdogs, the bulk being against investigative online news portal The Shift whose founder Caroline Muscat was awarded the Reporters Without Borders press freedom award for independence because she refuses to back down in the face of heavy pressure. Malta is ranked 77th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index, after falling 30 places over the past two years.Reporters Without Borders will be launching a report ‘Justice Delayed: The Assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia and Malta’s Deteriorating Press Freedom Climate’ in Valletta, Malta on 15th October at 11:30am at the University of Malta’s Valletta Campus. In the lead to up to the second anniversary of journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia’s assassination where the Maltese government’s failure to deliver justice is in focus, Reporters Without Borders condemns the intensification of threats against independent news outlets and in particular the one led by a journalist who was recently awarded with RSF press freedom award for independence. It followed further attacks by three Government Ministers who appealed a magisterial decree that they should be investigated by stating the revelations were published in “a partisan news portal”, attacking its founder Caroline Muscat.

The shipyard will deliver the first ship to its owner in November 2014, the second – in November 2015 and the third – in November 2016“Severnaya Verf won the auction largely due to already existing experience of building supply ships intended for offshore drilling platforms for European customers. From a technical point of view, the vessels purchased by the Ministry of Defense are very similar to the ones made for European clients and the project 22390/22391, which should provide a basis for the development of the Gazprom’s auxiliary fleet, envisaged for exploration of the Arctic shelf, “ Leonid Kuzmin, Marketing Director of Severnaya Verf stated.In recent years, Severnaya Verf has built on a “turnkey” basis and exported two offshore drilling platform replenishment ships.“Due to our export related experience we are the only shipyard in Russia with well- proven technologies, special tooling, as well as extensive business contacts with suppliers of marine equipment. This will allow our company to successfully execute a new order from the MoD,” Leonid Kuzmin emphasized.According to the decision of the Government of the Russian Federation, Severnaya Verf is currently the sole supplier of Project 20380/20385 corvettes as well as Project 22350 frigates for the Russian Navy.Based on the existing contracts, Severnaya Verf is contracted by the Russian Navy for construction and delivery of 6 Project 22350 frigates, six Project 20380/ 20385 corvettes as well as a communication ship under the Project 18280, which are to be completed by 2020.[mappress]Naval Today Staff , June 15, 2012; Image: Hotchya View post tag: Naval View post tag: 3 June 15, 2012 Share this article View post tag: News by topic View post tag: class View post tag: Supply Back to overview,Home naval-today Russian Navy to Get 3 Ice-Class Supply Ships center_img View post tag: Ice Russian Navy to Get 3 Ice-Class Supply Ships View post tag: Russian Industry news View post tag: ships View post tag: get View post tag: Navylast_img read more

View post tag: Lancaster The Queen – as the Duke of Lancaster – launched the Type 23 frigate in 1990 and has taken a keen interest in her work ever since.On arrival at Portsmouth Naval Base Her Majesty inspected a guard of honour comprising 34 members of HMS Lancaster’s 170 crew before attending a shoreside reception for sailors and their families.The Queen then had a private lunch on board in the ship’s hangar and spoke to crew members about the ship’s deployment to the North Atlantic and Caribbean Sea last year.During the seven-month operation HMS Lancaster – known as The Queen’s Frigate – seized drugs with a total street value of £160m – 1.2 tonnes of cocaine and almost 1.5 tonnes of cannabis. She detained 23 drug-runners and also disrupted sizeable amounts of drugs which were ditched into the sea.Aside from counter narcotics patrols the ship visited all six of the UK overseas territories in the region, providing reassurance and security during the core hurricane season. She also assisted local communities by repairing vital buildings including hospitals and schools.Before leaving the ship, The Queen joined the entire ship’s company for a photograph on the upper deck.HMS Lancaster’s Commanding Officer, Commander Peter Laughton, said: “It has been a true honour to receive a visit from our Lady Sponsor, The Duke of Lancaster. “Since launching HMS Lancaster in 1990 I know Her Majesty The Queen has taken a keen interest in what we are doing, and today gave me the perfect opportunity to update her on the ship’s recent activities including our successful counter-narcotics deployment in the North Atlantic and Caribbean, and our more recent Defence engagement activities in Hamburg.”[mappress]Press Release, May 22, 2014; Image: Royal Navy View post tag: Queen Back to overview,Home naval-today UK: Queen Elizabeth Tours HMS Lancaster Training & Education May 22, 2014 View post tag: Elizabeth UK: Queen Elizabeth Tours HMS Lancaster Share this article View post tag: Navy View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Tours View post tag: HMS View post tag: Navallast_img read more
